About Curry Hayes

Curry is a native of this area and is a professional home refurbisher/remodeler. When he purchased this house he had a vision of what a great place his could be as a vacation rental, and together with his wife Fran turned it into a charming and comfortable place ideal for vacationers. The couple had so much fun meeting new friends and welcoming guests into their vacation home, that they decided in November 2016 to add a second vacation rental home, catering to smaller groups or couples, listing # 959787.

Curry Hayes purchased this house in 2014

Why Curry Hayes chose Florida Central West

Fantastic pool totally resurfaced in September 2015, where many of our guests spend the majority of their time relaxing. Excellent location, new furnishings and thoughtfully appointed decor.


Wonderful! 4.8/5 -

Excellent stay

  • 5 of 5

We spent a long weekend at the "Hayes Hilton" in October with 8 adults and 2 kids. We had a wonderful time and will definitely plan on staying here again.


- the house is wonderfully equipped. Great with the standard stuff like cups, plates, etc but also with upgrades like plenty of towels, sheets, games. 2 fridges on vacation is dreamy

- structurally, the house is much bigger than depicted on homeaway. we slept 8 adults and 2 kids very comfortably. the bedrooms are far apart from each other at all. 2 living spaces are great to allow conversation and separate socialization

- the location is ideal. the park across the street has a really nice playground and trails going to the river for running, hiking, whatever. the proximity to Tarpon Sponges docks is great.

- the owners are extremely responsive and flexible. I got responses to my emails within minutes to hours every time. I requested to extend our check out time and they were very accommodating.


- not really the owner's fault but apparently this area of Florida doesn't recycle and I felt really bad about that.

Perfect Location

  • 4 of 5

The Hayes Hilton was perfect for our family. With 4 bedrooms, we were spread out that all had privacy and no disturbance by others snoring. The property is well maintained inside and out. Everything was provided to make our stay simple-towels, cookware, ample amount of dishes, bbq, linens, washer/dryer and a lovely pool. The location of the home is close to whatever you needed-shopping, site seeing, beaches, sponge docks, relatives (at least ours). We plan to stay here again on our next visit to Tarpon Springs.

Updated and well maintained. Convenient location.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. The home is beautiful. The photos really don't do it justice. Everything you need to make your stay hassle-free is provided. The owners have done an amazing job with the furnishings, and the many little details throughout the home. We appreciated that plenty of linens/towels were provided, ample dishes/cookware, nice beds and the commercial size washer and dryer. The pool/back yard was also amazing. It is conveniently located near the Sponge Docks, which we truly enjoyed. Also, very near 2 lovely beaches and shopping. We will likely never stay in a hotel again! You can tell that Jan and Curry truly care about this home and want it to be perfect for your stay. We will definitely be back & would recommend this home to anyone.

Overly impressed

  • 5 of 5

Fran was very helpful and very welcoming, without her our trip for Memorial Day weekend would have never happened as she went out of her way to allow us to rent and provided an unbeatable rate! Best host I've ever rented with. As for The house, it is incredibly gorgeous and much bigger than the pictures, the pool is extremely enjoyable aswell along with the privacy the fence offers. Slept 13 overly comfortably. The location is absolutely perfect as well, such as gas stations, walmarts, publix, liquor stores, cvs, resteraunts, and even gyms less than 5 miles from the house. The house is perfectly stocked with everything needed to enjoy your weekend.10/10 for the host, 10/10 for the house!

Love it

  • 5 of 5

We are so pleased with our time and the Curry's home. It was nicely furnished, clean, quiet, and our family had one of our best vacations ever. We will never book a vacation without renting a house. No more motels. The Curry's were so nice to deal with, and we will recommend them to anyone considering a vacation rental in Tarpon Springs. Location was great, just minutes from excellent restaurants, the beach, and quaint Tarpon Springs.

Great house for our cousin trip

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I stayed at the house with our combined 5 kids (9-13) and had a great time. Kids loved the pool -lovely and clean and we enjoyed cooking in the house. House was super spacious and kids had their own space to watch their own shows. We didn't get a chance to visit the nature park - Fran recommended the kayaking and we also took a day trip to Ana Maria Island which was great. So often with rentals, there aren't enough plates or pans - but we were able to live like our normal selves. Loved the beds - my kids said they were more comfortable than their beds at home. Fran was a dream and was super attentive - although we didn't have any problems. We hope to be back to visit one day.
