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.

Plenty of room. Fran was so nice and showed us everything upon checking in. The packet of info that was left for us on things to do and eat near by was very helpful. Thanks again!

My family stayed in this wonderful home the second week of June 2017 and the space worked out perfect with all our family members. There was plenty of square footage and the house layout is perfect for a big family. The pool/deck/grill area was where we spent most of our time listening to music and swimming. The beach and stores are all very close and there is a nice park right across the street with plenty of walking and bike trails to enjoy. Having bikes provided in the shed was a great bonus! We hit the trails every morning and saw lots of wild life. I highly recommend this home to anyone looking to relax in the Tarpon Springs area. The pictures on this site do not do the home justice because when you walk in the whole place is open and inviting!!! We will be back in the future! PS. the Key Lime Pie was yummy!

Great home for our family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Very spacious, comfortable, well equipped vacation home. It was a perfect set up for my husband and myself, our daughters and their children. The whole property had everything we could want or need. Linens, towels, dishes; even games and puzzles. The pool was delightful. Fran was very helpful with any questions we had, and even suggested a perfect restaurant for our anniversary dinner! The location is great as well. Beaches nearby, downtown Tarpon springs has a lot to explore, and is close enough to other beaches like St Pete Beach, Madeira, and Treasure Island, that we took several day trips to these other areas. It was a nice family vacation and the Hayes Hilton was a home away from home! Would love to stay here again!

Can't wait to go back

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 12 with 8 adults and 4 kids so needless to say it was a full house. Our stay was wonderful and I would highly recommend the property. The only down fall we found was the lack of pillows but that's because many of us use 2 each. We are looking forward to trying to come down again next year for our 1 year anniversary. Curry and Fran were great to deal with. Even with the full house we found the house was laid out with enough space to have plenty of room, we never felt crowded and the pool was great!

Fabulous February in Florida!

  • 5 of 5

Fran & Curry, Thank you so much for 'sharing' your beautiful home with us. We have been escaping to Tarpon Springs for several years now and your rental is the best. Plenty of room for times when you want to read a book or sit in the sunshine. The pool was wonderful! Your kitchen has everything anyone could want and the knives were sharp. Mixing bowls, pans and skillets along with containers as well as a hand mixer, and a new grill-anything you wanted was all there. It was great to know that ya'll were just a text away for any questions we may have had. We will definitely be returning! Becky & Rodger
