About Margo Barnard

We enjoy our time in Tarpon Springs playing tennis, running on the bayou, kayaking and exploring the variety of restaurants. Because of the nature of our work we travel between Tarpon Springs and Southern California.

We wanted to share the loveliness of the area with other visitors.

Margo Barnard purchased this house in 2012

Why Margo Barnard chose Florida Central West

The authenticity of the home is charming. It's has many original features from when the house was built 100 years ago, but updated to make it a comfortable place for vacationing.

What makes this house unique

We love the proximity to the bayou. It's a relaxing environment that is also perfect for recreational activities. The neighborhood is quiet.

Clean & Quiet

  • 4 of 5

I spent a weekend here and it was great. The house was spacious, clean and up to my expectations. The pool was beautiful. The neighborhood is quiet and the neighbors were friendly. There's a park within walking distance from the house and it's in a good location. Also, you have easy access to grocery stores and restaurants. I really enjoyed my stay. Thank you.

Great Get Away

  • 5 of 5

The house was spacious and comfortable and the neighborhood was quiet. The property is close to downtown and the bayous which are quite pretty and sometimes have events going on. The parks nearby also have tennis and basketball courts available. There is a lot that is within walking distance and the sponge docks are only a five minute drive away. Lastly, the Fred Howard Park and other beaches are also only a few minutes away. Even though we live here in Florida, this was a great vacation spot close to lots of fun things.
