Awesome location and very friendly hosts. We connected with John and Linda on the spur of the moment due to a family emergency. The apartment was huge and it felt like we were at home... which was very calming given our circumstances. We did have a few hours to enjoy local restaurants... one recommended by John (Tarpon Tavern) was a hit! Not a much of a view, but we enjoyed the food tremendously. Big portions and reasonably priced for the area.

Fred, Thanks for your kind review. We are glad you enjoyed the apartment. We wish it was under better circumstances for you. We will say a prayer for your dad and your family. We know these are tough times for all of you. Sincerely, John and Linda Hall

John and Linda's is about a mile away from the sponge docks and only blocks from historic downtown and lovely restaurants and some shopping. 3 miles away is Sunset Beach Park. I didn't have the pleasure of meeting John and Linda, but they made it very easy to checkin and retrieve the key from the lockbox. The home is spacious with two bedrooms, kitchen, living room, and bathroom, along with outdoor patio you can access through the kitchen. In the hot Florida summer, the fans they have amply provided are necessary to circulate the ac from the only two through wall units in the bedrooms. There is a steep staircase to access to the apartment, located within its own private entrance on the side of the house.

John & Linda's apartment is just perfect for a stay in Tarpon springs. It's within walking distance to the sponge docks and downtown but in a lovely residential area with parking and a private outside area. The apartment had everything you could think of for your stay and was clean and comfortable. It was traditionally furnished so it was like stepping back in time. John & Linda were lovely hosts and if we're ever back in Tarpon Springs this is where we'll stay.

Great place if you enjoy morning walks. Spring Bayou is only a half block away. Beautiful walk and lovely homes. Also a short drive to the Sponge Docks. We really enjoyed the seafood at nearby "Rusty Bellies". Also ate wonderful Greek food several times at "Mykonos". Both places are located at the Sponge Docks area on Dodecanese Blvd. (These two restaurants also offer free parking.) The second floor apartment was clean, comfortable, and charming. It was a perfect stay for us!

Hi Barbara, Thanks for the kind review. We are so pleased that you enjoyed the apartment. Please come back and visit us if your travels ever bring you back to Tarpon Springs. You picked two of our favorite restaurants; Mykonos and Rusty Bellies. Sincerely, John and Linda Hall

We visit Tarpon Springs up to two times a year and would highly recommend either the upstairs historic home apartment or the Cozy Cottage. Both were well equipped, clean, and very comfortable. My wife and I had the upstairs apartment and my daughters and grandchildren the Cozy Cottage. My grandkids had one word for the Cozy Cottage....awesome! We loved the location being just a block from the bayou and with an easy walk to the Sponge Docks with all the Greek and seafood restaurants and little shops. Quiet residential setting. Outdoor deck seating for each unit and outdoor grill available on ground level. Excellent communications with the John and Linda. Excellent value for either a family or couple compared to hotels.

This is a wonderfully charming upstairs apartment, centrally located in a beautiful neighborhood. It is very easy to feel at home here. Check-in was easy even though John and Linda were out of town when I arrived. This is only steps away from one of the most beautiful town parks I have ever seen. Tarpon Springs is a town that shouldn't be missed and this is an excellent place from which to enjoy it.

My wife and I have been married for 45 years. We enjoy the outdoors, dining out and a passion of ours is sailing on our 30ft Island Bahama when time permits. We have two children and 4 grandchildren and enjoy spending time with them. We like to meet new people and love entertaining. My wife enjoys working in the garden. We both like traveling and spending time together. We once owned and operated a bed and breakfast in Tarpon Springs and our desire is to make everyone feel welcome and at home in our apartment. Blessings! John and Linda
