Description

The space

This huge waterfront home is 2350q ft, with several garages, but since it is quite large for just myself and my small dogs! By the way, they are no trouble, and only bark when someone is at the door or a stranger or animals are are outside or around the home for about 2 min. - if that. AND they WILL stop on demand. They have their own separate, porch with doggy door and my office they use. Again its all on the other side of home. So you don't have to deal with them too much ! But they can be a great warning system or very entertaining. However, we have never had a problem here! Besides this works out so well for everyone because I am at one end of the home and you are at the other!!! So it really makes sense for both.

Dynamite location(on the water) and close to Sponge Docks in Tarpon Springs, Beach and unique Dunedin area where it had a bit of everything to offer! Also several hospitals, and many things do do of all sort all around!

You just relax and enjoy a nice home with many amenities you will not find in most, and $ave, Save, $ave so you can enjoy more, DO MORE, know where to go a few local real tips,and get up to the minute information from an experienced local! I love going out and enjoying everything myself too and have seen it all!

That's why, I decided to offer my huge home for a vacation home to share ~ what a great opportunity for someone!!! If the situation was reversed..I WOULD JUMP ON IT! I understand thru past success and experience what people are looking for today in a safe relaxing atmosphere! This location gives you the flexibility of being close enough to several locations without being stuck in one! There's a multitude of choices and things to do here! It would work well even for a person that stays for several months aka as snowbirds and perhaps they will like it enough and if things work out real well, that they will be back yearly. I have had other properties with people renting from all over the world, for 10+ years! It would be like having a second home without all the headaches and all the huge expenses! This is a laid back Golf Course, Waterfront Community, and it is near to all ammenities, beaches, parks, colleges, malls, and many other sports, transportation, buses, entertainment and activities etc.

This bright and spacious home is completely furnished with modern furnishings and all conveniences. Sort of a modern, tropical / transitional style. The flooring, for the most part is mostly wood, and ceramic except bedrooms super clean and carpeted. All the rooms are normal to oversized. The guest bedroom has a tropical flavor, and a very comfy queen sized bed, with an large wall closet, flat screen TV, available DVD player.

This is far better than a B& B or hotel offering again, some privacy with a huge open feeling of relaxation and full bath! Cable and Internet is included!!! My bedroom is located at the other end of house with my own bath just off the huge Great Room sitting area, library, and wet bar. The Great Room is equip with a large screen TV, including a huge L- shaped leather sofa. I also have a small gym I use! There's a nice dining room, washer and dryer, large kitchen with skylight and expansive counters, and extra cabinets. There's also an additional eat in area and porch looking over the water right off kitchen and stairs to go to the dock or enjoy the views and all of nature. Beside the fish and the birds, you can enjoy dolphins and manatees coming around on occasion! But hurry best dates may be gone soon, opportunities like these do not last!

There is sufficient parking in the yard which is mostly fenced and nicely landscaped. Other details can be available once I have approved you as a new person tro share this home. Feel free to leave your number or email me with with any questions. If it this is a good fit for both of us you cannot do much better for price, location and what it offers, etc.

Oh, there is a separate apt downstairs which is used lightly by family or a friend.. normally booked. Presently, it's only 740 sq ft. with full bath and kitchenette. You will not know there is anyone down there. Eventually it may be a bit larger and a prime rental for someone that would appreciate a real deal of a place to enjoy etc. FOR NOW, I MAY HAVE 2 BEDROOMS AVAILABLE upstairs! Come stay here relax, fish off the dock, take a canoe ride, boating, or kayaking. If you experience this ~ you will want to come back! This might be exactly what your looking for but almost impossible to find! I wish I could find something like this myself for a vacation!

I am very quiet, and anyone else that would be here would be the same etc, and no parties unless fully cleared with owner and if there is another party staying ~ LIKE YOU! I try to keep everyone happy (and I really do). Easy to get along with and logical, respectful to others.

I am easy to get along wth but also being a real estate broker for many years and also being in the insurance and finance business. I sometimes am a bit artsy, and detail oriented. But, I am sure you will be quite surprised, I have mellowed out now and just trying to enjoy life, nature and all of it's offerings! Hopefully you will feel comfortable here and want to come back again also.

So relax, pack your bags, get your tickets, and if you need anything or any type of info on anything.. I probably have more than you would need for answers with my experience of living and renting unique property in the area for over 25 yrs! Oh, and if your seriously looking for a home here I may definely be able ot help in that area as well!

If you were looking for a place just like this it would be a bit difficult to find. everything is nearby, shops, restaurants, even the quaint world renowned fishing villages of Tarpon Springs, Innisbrook Golf Course in Palm Harbor, and Dunedin Clearwater Beaches, are not too far away either.

Cheers,
Rose

Interaction with guests

All the previous guests have told me I am great for little tips or local info that can make a difference in your trip. I know the area quite well and all the surrounding counties as well. Just ask, and you most like get a informative answer!

The neighborhood

There are many different type home here, its sort of like some of those unique neighborhoods in the north. That meas its not a cookie cutter one, with the same home in different colors one after the other. We are also on the river that goes to the Gulf Of Mexico! Fishing, canoeing or just watching what might be next to come by! Not to mention the neighborhood golf course and everything else so close in proximity!

Getting around

A car is norm, but you might see some cycles, carts, bikes, or just walking all around! EZ access to the shops, or a trip to the post office, church, banks, library, different restaurants, groceries and other stores as well as military clubs etc. There is a nice family market at end of street just a few minutes away among others close by.

Hurry, there still may be room for one person in Jan , Feb and or March!

The photos on Rose's site are representative of a house that no longer exists. As soon as you walk in the door the odor hits you. It is disturbing. An uncleaned kennel smell. And that is because Rose has seven, not two dogs as stated. Twelve really but does one count the 5 newborn puppies? They are never walked nor go outside. It is the 2nd story of the house. They use the loo on a deck and the tile, wood floors and carpeting of the house. I saw one poop on a couch and Rose picked up the pooh without then disinfecting the couch. Same with them peeing and pooping on the floors. Sometimes she disinfected. The place reeked. I could not be in most of the house it smelled so bad. Nor would I sit anywhere except for a little kitchen dinette where a few times while eating breakfast I watched as someone would pee on the floor. Lovely. I hardly slept the first night the carpeting in my bedroom smelled so bad. Rose did have it steam cleaned the next day. There was still a faint smell. My bathroom was not cleaned, hairs on the sink and floor. She said she'd give me $30. for not cleaning it, which she admitted she didn't do. I never recieved it. There is not a shower caddy to hold anything. The cabinet is crammed with her stuff. Under sink also. Your items would all be on the counter. The windows all need to be cleaned, badly. Not only the glass but the sills, very dirty. The frig needed cleaning. I was coming for a month and there was no space made for me to use. I cleaned a shelf and made room after asking about it. Even then she made no effort to do it. I cleaned with hot soapy water dishes needed in the dishwasher that were, maybe moldy. Not sure what is was but I would not eat off of them. Again, she did nothing to remedy it. Once I told Rose I needed to move out, that I found a place, she offered me $500. even though the rest of my stay was $630. I said I'd think about it. Thats when I found a # for Airbnb. I sent them photos of the place and they said it was awful and were sorry I had to put up with that. Once Rose knew about it the insults started in texts. After a few days of that I blocked her #. She thought it uppity of me to ask if she had a chefs knife. I've stayed in places that only had paring knives so it is a legitimate question for someone who does not eat out much. Also she accused me of having trouble staying with other people since I wanted my own bathroom. The lies she spun about me were sad and untruthful. The time I spent looking for another place in Floridas high season...

I enjoy others company and try to help make them comfortable. Also giving them great information about the best places to go in the bay area. Being in the Real Estate world for most of my adult years has been very interesting, and informative. I have met many people from all over the world. Have many happy homeowners STILL enjoying their homes I sold or rented to them!

My attitude is easy going, open to a degree to new ideas. I try to enjoy life and touch people lives around me.

I love and have lived on the water for a large part of my adult life. There is something special about have a nice view and enjoying (URL HIDDEN) gives you a refreshing feeling of serenity that is hard to compare! I have traveled to many countries and places in the U.S. and abroad.. Favorites are usually warm,tropical or Island like and or places of interesting culture and landscape, usually warm, such as Hawaii. California. the Islands. I also like to cruise almost anywhere. Alaska and other unique places experiencing what life has to offer! Enjoy life your only here once.
