Tropical retreat

  • 5 of 5

We found this tropical retreat to be a very clean, spacious, fully furnished home. This home has a beautiful, large back yard. We enjoyed the short walk to Sunset Beach in the evening. We experienced local favorite venues such as: Gandi's homemade like pies, Ozona Blue's restaurant and the organic coffee shop on Pinellas Avenue with shaded outside seating. Our hosts showed a strong desire to please their guests.

Excellent !

  • 5 of 5

We spent the month of December in this beautiful 5 star property . This truly is a home away from home ! The property was spotlessly clean and the furnishings in first class condition. Everything needed was provided and we had a wonderful relaxing holiday. Tarpon Springs is a lovely area with many beautiful State Parks to explore and a lovely beach area nearby. Many thanks to the owners Dennis and Ali.

Plus, there are two fantastic beaches (Sunset Beach and Fred Howard Park Beach) within 2 miles of the home.
