Beautiful place to enjoy all that Tarpon Springs area has to offer. Place is a good example of old Florida. Lovely pool to enjoy the picturesque view of the river and ocean. Stingrays, manatees and various fish species hang around the dock at varied times. Thank you Dianne for opening your home to us!

Dianne (the owner) has kept $50.00 of our damage deposit for what was claimed to be a mess on the floors, leaving the tile untidy with dirt, grass, and sand. We were accused of not using the mats provided to wipe our feet before entering the rental home. We found it very insulting to hear from the owner that we must treat our homes differently in Canada. We are Canadian and found this very insulting. Aside from one night that our son slept in another bedroom, the whole area of the house that we used was tile and we did, in fact, sweep, before we left. The only thing we could have done differently was to scrub the floor. Upon booking, we were charged a $250.00 cleaning fee. A simple internet search of the home's address will tell you that her home is in pre-foreclosure and we fielded calls from unpaid service people throughout our stay, looking for payment from her. We are property owners of a medical clinic, rental properties and our own home. We are well-versed in what qualifies as damage and dirt on a tile floor does not. We would not recommend staying here. The home needs many updates and repairs. The oven door does not open properly and the dishwasher is rusted inside from many lost tines. The white on the zebra pattern furniture is so dirty that you would not want to sit on it. The plastic pool furniture is falling apart and the pool pictures accurately show that the pool needs a complete cleaning. Of course, the view is pretty, but we would not recommend staying here. Dianne called us many times throughout our stay, getting us to check the hot tub and numerous other things that we've never been asked to do on vacation. She checks in often by calling. You will want to note that most reviews you will find on her main rental internet page are from 2006-2010.

Our family loved this location and will most definitely come back. We enjoyed fishing off the dock, swimming in the pool, and watching the sunsets. Looking at birds and all the fish was so relaxing. There was more than enough room for our family (my wife and I, my parents, and our two daughters) in this cozy house. The location is 5-10 minutes from grocery stores, bait shops, and restaurants. The guided boat tour with Captain Todd is a must. Diane was great to deal with and made us feel right at home. We can’t wait to go back!

My family and I stayed here for the holidays and had a great time. We were greeted with fresh flowers from Dianne and beautiful ocean breezes. We did arrive sooner than planned and Dianne made it very easy to check in earler.The pool was great except when we had several cold days,there is no option for heat. Although there is a large hot tub for the cooler days but it had some problems while we were there . The surrounding restaurants and marinas were great! We brought our own boat and ventured to the many surrounding Islands! Dianne is very eco conscience so make sure to shut lights off, she checks in often to assure you are content.

The view is amazing! The pool wow! Location is private but close to anything you need. It was like walking into home, every amenity that you would want or need was there. Dianne is a wonderful hostess full of helpful tips about the area and was a joy to meet. So glad we took her advice and booked a charter for our last day. Captain Todd of Private Island Charters was fantastic. The kids and I spent hours on the pier fishing trying to see who could catch the most/biggest fish. Even my teenaged daughter was out there casting away. We made some fantastic memories, and looking forward to another visit. Thank you Dianne for sharing your home with us.

To say this place has the wow factor is a complete understatement! From the moment you walk in and look out to sea, you can literally feel all the worries fall off your shoulders. This house is a must if you require peace, relaxation and time out from the real world. The house itself has an abundance of personality, akin to the owners, It's comfortable, clean, spacious and has everything you need. Its close to all amenities yet in a world of its own, hidden less than 2.5 miles from the main highway where there are supermarkets and restaurants etc galore. A must restaurant to visit on Baileys Bluff is Miss Vicki's, which has THE most amazing home made crab cakes with a stunning waterside view and a fab live band. All that aside, its the exterior that really sells this place. Apart from the natural scenic beauty there is a fabulous pool, Jacuzzi, and pier to spend hours enjoying the peace fishing and providing hours of entertainment for the family. As an added bonus, less than 6 feet away from the pier we watched dolphins swim by in their natural habitat, a manatee, small Bonnethead sharks and stingray! Amazing! If you get the chance the owners can also arrange boat trips as they have a boat moored alongside the pier. Dianne was helpful and communicative and very accommodating when we asked to stay an extra day because we just didn't want to leave. These will be the fondest of memories for us on our Florida holiday. Honestly, If you could just box the feeling that lies behind these beautiful sunsets, life would be a happier place!

The occasion of our visit in August 2016 was my high school reunion held on Clearwater Beach. Not wanting to stay in a hotel, we looked for a spot on the water that was close enough to the action, but quiet and more affordable. Dianne's lovely home in Holiday, right on the Gulf of Mexico was perfect! I won't go over all the details and amenities that have already been mentioned in several other reviews, other than to say it's a beautiful home with a great gulf view, and a fantastic pool. We felt like we were within an easy drive of the whole Tampa Bay area. Our travels over the course of the week took us to Tampa, Bradenton, Clearwater, and even to The Villages in Lady Lake one day. It's a great "home base" for the area.

This was one of the most beautiful places I have stayed. I was out side from early morning until dark because I didn't want to miss one moment of those spectacular views: the changing sea, the fish jumping, the excitement and delight of seeing the dolphins, the birds, the sunset and the lightening. My grown up children loved the Tiki room and camped out in front of the TV during the heat. The pool was great and we barbecued nearly every night. Dianne was great - really helpful and welcoming. We felt we were staying in a much loved family home and appreciated the opportunity to share it. Busch Gardens in Tampa was voted as having the best rides out of all the parks by the youngsters but other than one visit there Piece of Heaven was the place to be. We met Todd and definitely want to go out on his boat next time. This was a relaxing end to our Florida holiday and just what we needed after the bustle of Orlando.

Every year in the past we always go on our summer vacation to the mountains. This year we decided to go to the ocean. Not wanting to be bothered with all the commercialized places like Daytona, Panama City etc. We decided on the Clearwater area. We found this vacation home on the web and I contacted Ms. Dianne. She is wonderful. I loved talking with her on the phone and I must say that the pictures didn't do the house justice. This vacation was by far the best vacation we have ever been on. I can't even describe how relaxing and refreshing the pool was. We spent most of our time sitting by the pool and we watched the sunset every evening there. I would definitely recommend this house to anyone needing a break from the stress of work. It was truly a relaxing experience. We will definitely be visiting with Ms. Dianne again. I feel like I made a friend in her. She is so funny to talk to. Enjoyed meeting her! Awesome Vacation!!
