Holiday Rental House
This home is the place you are looking for … when you need that break from work … when you crave some family time … when you just love to enjoy water, sun and beach … all that and so much more is what this home invites you to experience. For a detailed description, I refer to the photos that can tell far more than I ever could. They tell the story of relaxation, comfort and luxury that characterize this fabulous home and location. In addition, a brief descriptive outline is below. This 5-bedroom house is just ½ hour (21 miles) away from Tampa International Airport and as close as 8 minutes (4 miles) to Florida’s most pristine beaches. Right next door, the famous Innisbrook Resort features 4 top rated Golf courses including the Copperhead course played every March for an annual PGA TOUR C...This home is the place you are looking for … when you need that break from work … when you crave some family time … when you just love to enjoy water, sun and beach … all that and so much more is what this home invites you to experience. For a detailed description, I refer to the photos that can tell far more than I ever could. They tell the story of relaxation, comfort and luxury that characterize this fabulous home and location. In addition, a brief descriptive outline is below. This 5-bedroom house is just ½ hour (21 miles) away from Tampa International Airport and as close as 8 minutes (4 miles) to Florida’s most pristine beaches. Right next door, the famous Innisbrook Resort features 4 top rated Golf courses including the Copperhead course played every March for an annual PGA TOUR Championship. The quiet neighborhood (last house in a cul-de-sac) surely guarantees peaceful evenings at the pool side, barbecuing on a high-quality grill and enjoying warm Florida evenings outdoors protected by a covered porch. During the day, you’ll appreciate the shaded pool area while sipping on your favorite drink and relaxing in the pool. What about the beaches? Prepare to be amazed! Just 4.5 miles away, the great beach of Tarpon Springs Fred Howard Park awaits you. Other beaches nearby are Sunset Beach (4 miles), Honeymoon Island State Park Beaches (8.5 miles - great for shelling), Clearwater Beach (15 miles) and Sand Key Park Beach (16 miles). Our beaches offer all of the water sports and activities you could want: Fishing Charters & Tours; Boat Tours; Dolphin & Whale Watching; Waterskiing & Jet Skiing; Surfing; Windsurfing & Kitesurfing; Parasailing & Paragliding; Scuba & Snorkeling … did I forget something? Maybe sign up for a Sponge Diving boat’s tour where you will see a sponge diver dressing up in an authentic suit used around 1900 when Tarpon Springs was called the “Sponge Capital of the World”. You can still smell and taste this unique charm of this Greek community while strolling the Sponge Docks of Tarpon Springs Marina. Chartering a boat or catching a ferry allows you to explore some islands as well, among them the Anclote Key Preserve State Park featuring a light house and offering beaches, swimming and boating. The uninhabited natural Caladesi Island State Park offers beautiful beaches. Oh, by the way, anyone in the mood to start a sea shell collection with an original Florida Sand Dollar shell or Florida starfish shell? Did your daughter just watch the movie “Dolphin Tale” (part of my DVD library) with the world-famous dolphin Winter who was found entangled in a crab trap line and rescued by a few volunteering for the Clearwater Beach Marine Aquarium? Well, surprise her with a visit to the aquarium to see Winter alive and well! Has she ever seen the world famous Weeki Watchee Mermaids? It was a great experience for my granddaughter and is just 30 minutes north of here ... combine your fun trip with great boating and kayaking on the Weeki Watchee river. Any other Florida natural attractions - such as visiting the Manatees in Crystal River and all world known attractions of Florida are only 1 – 4 hours away. Back to your home away from home: It provides an open split floor plan with 5 bedrooms (5th bedroom available only by request - see below); 2 baths, kitchen, family room, living room, pool and a large enclosed pool and porch area. Typically, I close off the 5th bedroom to store personal items while renting. On request and if needed I can offer it as a fully equipped office space with another guest bed and TV.More
