All about Mark’s place

Ideally located on Florida's Gulf Coast just minutes from many of America’s best beaches. The apartment is situated on the shores of beautiful Lake Tarpon, just north of Clearwater. The big and exciting city of Tampa is just 30 mins away, with the major theme parks in Orlando only 90 mins drive.

Come stay with us and you will find you can relax and recharge your batteries in a comfortable setting yet just minutes away you have all the activities and amenities that you could ever wish for!

The space
The apartment is 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.

Relax by the communal pool and in the Jacuzzi and enjoy the waterfront environment. On your doorstep are an abundance of malls, restaurants, parks, beaches, golf courses and endless activities for young or old.

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.

The apartment is on ground-level and looks out onto water, boardwalks and boat docks. Often you will see fish in the water and storks and herons right outside on the decking. Our gas-grill-BBQ (we share this with our 2-bed apartment upstairs) is on the decking right by the waterside.

There is an open-air swimming pool. There is a Jacuzzi, sun loungers and picnic tables where you can relax alongside the boat docks and waterside where we have our own private mooring.

Also next door is a great restaurant and bar which you can walk to. Opposite is a multiplex cinema.


The apartment comes complete with all vital appliances and utensils together with Cable TV with over 80 channels, DVD player and telephone with free calls anywhere in the USA.

For your convenience, we have installed a computer with free high-speed (100MB) Internet access and WIFI for your portable devices.


The one-bed apartment looks out onto the decking and waters from Lake Tarpon, the second largest lake in the state of Florida.

It is located at ground level with an allocated parking space almost right outside.


It is very spacious and has one bedroom with queen size bed + pull-out sofa bed in living area (so can sleep 4). The apartment is comfortable, clean and above all safe. It is air-conditioned and family-friendly with high-chair and travel cot. The approximate size of the apartment is 800 square feet.


We have a phone with free local calls and an actual computer with free high-speed Internet. Alternatively bring your cellphone, laptop or other device and pick up our wireless signal. Having the free high-speed Internet is so handy for staying in touch with the world, checking the weather, checking your emails, looking up local information, playing CDs etc.

The living room and dining area have a superb view of the water of Lake Tarpon lapping at the decking. This is a major factor, not to be underestimated – we have had people who have stayed in both apartments and many prefer the one-bed. It is really a case of how many people are in your group as the two-bed is much more spacious and of course sleeps more. The view outside is fantastic especially at night when the palms are all lit up.


Patio doors in the living-area open up into the lanai – this is a large area with a table and chairs which although ‘outside’ is fully screened in to keep any insects out. It is a great place to sit out with a cool drink at sunset just enjoying the waterfront views.

When you go through the door in the lanai, you step directly onto the decking of the apartment complex and there is a bench right outside to sit on. Often you will see storks and herons right outside.


By the bench we have a gas BBQ for your use.


The large sofa bed in the living room enables you to sleep four with ease. The living room has a sofa for three and a separate sofa for two. The TV comes with free Cable TV with over 80 channels. We also have a VCR and DVD player for movies (it also will play CDs).


It also has a large wardrobe and lots of drawers providing plenty of space to store all your belongings. Bedding is provided and we have a hairdryer. Queen size bed.


The dining area has a dining table with seating for four.


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 a refrigerator.

In the hallway is a washer/dryer, iron and ironing board.


Next to the bedroom is the bathroom with bath and shower. Towels are provided.

Where you’ll be

Palm Harbor, Florida, United States


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 close by there are more local beaches 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!


We bought in this area because we wanted a home in a relaxing and homely part of Florida where you can enjoy the peace and serenity of watching the sun go down on some of the best white sandy beaches in the whole of America.

Our unique advantage over most normal properties is the superb location on the waters of Lake Tarpon. The boats, decking and palms make this a lovely setting for your vacation. You can fish off the decking and see eagles and many other beautiful birds yet you are in an area full of malls, shops and excellent restaurants.

Inside the apartment (we have a 1-bed and a 2-bed) we have made sure they are comfortable, clean and well-equipped with everything you need to be able to sit back and relax.


This is about a mile up the road and also gives access to Lake Tarpon. Well worth a visit as it is absolutely beautiful. Great covered picnic areas and plenty of restrooms.


You are within easy reach of Disney World, Epcot Centre, Universal Studios, MGM Studios, Sea Life, and all the other attractions in Orlando. The drive is a very easy one as you take highway 4 all the way from Tampa towards Orlando and it takes about 90 minutes.


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.


Florida is renowned for good value, delicious food, usually served in large portions! Fine restaurants are plentiful, varying from elegantly simple to simply elegant. Menus include a wide selection from ethnic Italian, gourmet French, Japanese to “down home” barbecue or fresh fish caught daily.

There are some fantastic restaurants near to our apartments in Palm Harbor/Clearwater. The choice and variety is simply amazing. Within 5 miles we calculate there to be hundreds of restaurants.


Numerous supermarkets (including Wal-Mart, Publix and Albertsons less than a mile away) as well as shops and malls (including Clearwater Mall) are also on your doorstep.


The area is a haven for golf lovers. Less than half a mile away is world-famous Westin Innisbrook Resort which hosts a PGA tour event which attracts golfers such as Tiger Woods.

Wentworth Golf club and the Lansbrook Golf course are also top courses but equally there are affordable public golf courses at which players of all standards can just turn up to play.

Within 10 miles there are about 40 golf courses!!


There are major sporting teams. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers play in the National Football League (NFL), the Tampa Bay Lightning play in the National Hockey League (NHL), and the Tampa Bay Rays play in Major League Baseball (MLB). Additionally, six MLB teams hold their spring training camps in the area.


Swimming with Manatees in Crystal River in the Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park has also been recommended by previous guests.


There is a 10-screen multiplex literally across the road.


Nearby is the Pinellas Trail which is 47 miles long where you can walk, run, bike, jog, or rollerblade.

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

Come have the vacation of a lifetime that you will always remember!!!
