Tarpon Springs is not only a historic and picturesque city; it is full of lively and delightful people. Surrounded by old mansions and enriched with Mediterranean heritage, Tarpon Springs has the perfect blend of culture, entertainment and history. At the turn of the century, Greek sponge divers brought the culture that exists today. A hidden vacation gem in Central Florida's West Coast. There is plenty to do such as boating, abundant beaches, state parks, golfing, deep sea fishing,… visiting the famous Sponge Docks, fabulous dining at various restaurants, antique shopping, biking, swimming, boating and watching the sunsets from one of the many bayous that feed into the Gulf of Mexico. Library, tennis courts, a meat market and grocery store, The Scenic Pinellas Trail (a 37 mile path that runs from Tarpon Springs to St. Petersburg for walking, jogging, running, biking, rollerblading ), the Tarpon Spring Trolley which tours the towns most famous landmarks, and more. Plus, there are two fantastic beaches (Sunset Beach and Fred Howard Park Beach) within 2 miles of the home.

After traveling all the way to Florida, most families prefer to spend their time enjoying themselves. This is why you will love our home because unlike the vast majority of other rental houses where you must pack up the car and drive to everything, from our home you can walk to almost everything including: The World Famous Sponge Docks with its fine award winning restaurants and specialty gift shops, bakeries, deep-sea fishing boats, sponge fishing tour boat, Dolphin Watch Island Tour Boat, Kayak rentals, boat rentals, antique shops, a winery, and historic district with red brick streets, exquisite victorian homes, art galleries, day spa, hair salon, scenic Spring Bayou, Craig Park, Sunset Beach, Howard Park...

Why vacation just anywhere in Florida when you can experience the quaint and peaceful village of Tarpon Springs, which is listed in the National Registry of Historic Places. Tarpon Springs is Pinellas County’s oldest town and was incorporated in 1887. Tarpon Springs is located in a part of Florida nicked named the Sun Coast as it averages over 300+ days of sunshine. The town has over 51 miles of waterfront and an average annual temperature is 72.8 degrees.
