Prices are fully inclusive of local taxes and utilities. No hidden extras unlike some other rentals. The apartment will be cleaned before and after your stay. No need for you to lift a finger, relax and enjoy! Credit cards accepted.

WHAT A LOCATION - The apartments are situated on the shores of beautiful Lake Tarpon in the small and quaint town of Palm Harbor, just north of the famous beach resort of Clearwater with mile after mile of white sandy beaches all the way down to St Petersburg. We are also just south of the well-known tourist town of Tarpon Springs.

You will need a car to stay here. The Clearwater area is a popular tourist area with many restaurants, bars, shopping malls and although they are just minutes away the road layout in this area means they are spread along the main roads and are not suitable for walking to (no pavement/sidewalk).

WATERFRONT LIVING - Lake Tarpon Villas is a modern, stylish, low-level apartment complex with direct access to seven-mile long Lake Tarpon (the second largest lake in Florida) which is great for bass fishing and water skiing. Both apartments look out onto water, boardwalks and boat docks. Often you will see fish in the water and storks and herons right outside on the decking which you can fish from. Our gas-grill-BBQ is on the decking right by the waterside.

There is an open-air swimming pool which has solar panels to heat the water in the winter and cool the water in the summer. There is a Jacuzzi, sun loungers and picnic tables where you can relax alongside the boat docks and waterside. Next-door is a boatyard from which pontoon boats can be hired and docked adjacent to the apartments at our own private mooring. Also next door is a great restaurant and bar which you can walk to.

Our ground-level spacious one-bedroom apartment downstairs has a queen-size bed and one bathroom. The large sofa bed in the living room enables you to sleep four with ease. The living room and dining area has a superb view of the water of Lake Tarpon. The patio doors open out into the very large patio area with sofa, chairs and table, which is screened off – an ideal spot for a drink at sunset.

WE HAVE EVERYTHING YOU NEED - Both apartments come complete with all vital appliances and utensils together with Cable TV with over 80 channels, DVD player and telephone with free local calls.

The kitchen has all the obvious appliances and utensils you need for cooking i.e. cooker, microwave, pots, pans, cutlery, kettle, coffee-maker etc. There is also a dishwasher and refrigerator.

For your convenience we have installed a computer with free high-speed Internet access and WIFI for your portable devices.

AWARD-WINNING BEACHES - Of course most people coming to stay with us want to know what the beaches are like. Well luckily we are minutes away from many great beaches. Many people have heard of St. Petersburg and Clearwater but there are more local beaches close by such as Honeymoon Island, Caladesi Island, Fred Howard Park and Sunset beach. Some of these have been voted in the top ten of all beaches in America – beating off competition from California and Hawaii!

TAMPA - On your doorstep in Tampa, you also have a major theme park, Busch Gardens, famous for having the best rollercoasters in Florida. Tampa itself has all sorts of attractions from waterfront shopping, marinas, Lowry Park Zoo, museums, malls, sports and nightlife.

NEARBY - Within 5 miles miles we calculate there to be hundreds of restaurants. Numerous supermarkets (including Wal-Mart, Publix and Albertsons less than a mile away). The area is a haven for golf lovers. Less than 1/2 mile is world-famous Westin Innisbrook Resort. Within 10 miles there are about 40 golf courses!! Nearby is the Pinellas Trail which is 47 miles long where you can walk, run, bike, jog, or rollerblade.

The Florida region

Getting Here - Tampa International Airport is just 30 minutes away, with the major theme parks in Orlando only 90 minutes away.

Distances - We are just 8 miles north of famous Clearwater beach. Other fabulous beaches much closer i.e. Caladesi Island which in 2008 was voted best beach in the whole of America!

Theme Parks - You are within easy reach of Disney World, Epcot Centre, Universal Studios, MGM Studios, Sea Life, and all the other attractions in Orlando. On your doorstep in Tampa, you have a theme park, Busch Gardens, famous for having some of the best roller coasters in Florida.

There are major sporting teams such as the SuperBowl champions Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Tampa Devil Rays baseball team. You can also watch spring training for the Toronto Blue Jays and the Philadelphia Phillies.

Nearby is the Pinellas Trail which is 47 miles long where you can walk, run, bike, jog, or rollerblade and the fabulous Anderson Park is less than a mile away.

There are endless other activities for everyone such as great shopping at the malls, water sports, scuba diving, snorkeling, museums (i.e. Salvador Dali), art galleries, gambling at the Hardrock casino in Tampa, bowling, zoos, cruises, concerts, nightlife, parks, fishing, cinemas, sailing, shelling, biking, tennis, racquetball, basketball, shuffleboard, horseriding, miniature golf, local library, live theater, sightseeing, waterskiing, windsurfing, parasailing, jet skiing, rafting and swimming with Manatees or Dolphins.

Come have a great vacation that you will never forget!

Clearwater

Coast/Beach - Nearby are the well-known and lively beach resorts of Clearwater and St. Petersburg.

Just 10 minutes away we have the quieter beaches of Honeymoon Island, Sunset Beach, Caladesi Island and Fred Howard Park. These hidden gems are often listed in the top 10 best beaches in America (beating competition in California and Hawaii!).

Tarpon Springs is a renowned port just up the road, famous for its ethnic Greek community diving for sponges.

GolF - Plenty of good value courses nearby including the world famous Westin Innisbrook (hosts USA PGA tour event), Wentworth Golf club and the Lansbrook Golf course.

“Very Enjoyable Stay”

Reviewed 6 Sep 2015

We had a great stay at Lake Tarpon Villas. The condo was extremely clean when we arrived and was very comfortable. Everything you needed was in the condo and made our stay very enjoyable. The location was perfect for us as it was central to many great places such as Tarpon Springs, Dunedin and Clearwater as well as having a great view over the water. We had a great time and would recommend it to anyone and would be very happy to stay there again.

“Sitting on the dock of the bay!”

Reviewed 8 May 2015

Tarpon Villas is a wonderful place to stay. This was our second trip and it was just amazing. The apartment has everything you could wish for a "home away from home". Very clean, great wifi and the numeric entry system is a great inclusion. Conveniently located just off the highway, yet so quiet, sitting on the creek you'd think you were miles from transportation. We enjoyed using the clean pool, the setting under the palms was very tropical. All in all a perfect stay, we can't wait to come back. Thank you Mark for sharing your accommodation with us.

Reviewed 21 Apr 2015

The pics of this property are exactly what you get.. wonderful calmness of the canals from Lake Tarpon.. Boat rental right next door (be sure to ask about discounts offered by staying there) I heard there it is someone local ,, not the boat yard . Cigar cave bar across the street was a must see. Honeymoon Island and Caladesi a must as well..... great location..

“Great place , meet all are needs”

Reviewed 9 Sep 2014

A one bedroom apartment on a complex of residential and rental apartments, with parking just outside rooms. A easy place to find with the is 19 just outside. A lovely apartment with everything you need. The parse pool was great and close to the rooms. It was never busy with well maintained facilities. We'll worth getting a boat from the boat rental next door to tour lake tarpon which the apartment is next to. The walkway outside was a lovely place to go along to see evening fall and watch the great evening storms and lighting shows.would use again

“Loved this condo and its location”

Reviewed 20 Jun 2013

We had a fantastic time in your Condo at Lake Tarpon. You have a lovely place – bigger than I expected and really clean and modern. Dock and pool very pretty. We played golf at Landsbrook 3 times (saw a gator on the 17th!), kayaked the Crystal river, went to Ellenden outlet shops, Clearwater pier 60 and Busch gardens twice. Busy week 

“Beware the US 19!!”

Reviewed 28 May 2013

We rented this condo for two months January and February 2013.The property was tired and contrary to the owners statements is in need of a full refurb. The bedroom was in poor condition with stains on the sheets from previous occupiers. Only after a serious email to the owner were we supplied with new sheets and pillows.The owner uses a local lady who lives on the low scale development. What you are not informed of is the noise of an eight lane highway less than two hundred yards from the unit.Also not mentioned is the scary exit from the minor road that takes you onto the US19. English visitors my find it daunting especially if you want to go south! We have been many times to the area but even we were taken in by the owners presentation on the website. Caveat Emptor!

We care and listen to our guests feedback - in this instance we took action to a genuine problem and we made every effort humanly possible to make this guests stay a happy one – despite every effort, sadly we just could not satisfy this particular guest. We have successfully rented our two apartments on this lovely complex for over 10 years and we now get over 4 months booked each year to repeat visitors who love coming back year after year. The people staying before and after this particular guest have both left very positive reviews saying that the apartments are exactly as described – a lovely lakeside complex close to beaches, set in a busy popular tourist area with so much to see and do.

“Comfortable, Spacious, well located condo”

Reviewed 18 May 2013

We spent a really lovely six weeks across March/April in this ground floor one bed condo. The accommodation is the first one as you approach the complex and, as such, has the advantage of being able to add the extra space of a Computer room/Library leading off the lounge area that others do not have. There was a large washer and drier facility (new) that was most useful for the longer stay. The spacious lounge opens up to an even wider furnished lanai, leading to the barbecue and boardwalk area with pleasant open views across the water to the nearby hotel. We have already booked a return visit.

“Great value for a couple”

Reviewed 11 Jan 2013

A smaller apartment, accommodating 2 people is not easy to find in Florida but this one is just perfect; as described and good value. The bed was comfy (not too firm) and the kitchen was clean and easy to use. I liked that we had our own washer/dryer and use of a computer. The lanai and decking were out of the sun, which was a shame in December, but I think that will be a thankful bonus during the hotter months. We still enjoyed the use of them during the evening. Close by, along the coast are cycle paths and numerous parks for watching the abundant wildlife. The only access to the villas is via the busy US19. Thankfully, it does have a pavement which we used to cycle to Anderson Park to the north and Publix supermarket to the south. The Francis Wilson Playhouse, Clearwater is a worthy evening's entertainment.

“A Piece of Heaven”

Reviewed 29 Jul 2012

All you could ask for, a home from home. The views are awesome onto the lake and it is so peaceful. Lovely to sit out on the patio in the evening knowing the bugs couldn't get to us and watch the world go by slowly and peacefully. Tarpon Springs a must visit a piece of Greece in Florida. Florida Aquarium in Tampa also a place to visit with a boat trip around the bay to see the wild dolphins and pay extra for the penguin experience I've never laughed so much. The beaches a stone throw away and beautiful. Orlando only a 90 mins drive and did this journey a couple of times with no stress. We can honestly say this has been one of the best holidays we have been on and this is our 12th visit to Florida. Many thanks to Mark.
