Holiday Rental House
What we intend to become our retirement home in a few years, our 1300 sq. ft. home is on the Anclote River between the Greek Sponge docks and the Gulf. With 2 bedrooms, 4 beds, we are set up for a very comfortable relaxed vacation for 4, with a pull-out queen in the living room for the occasional visitor. We have replaced all the appliances. Our HVAC is sterilized at the intake with a UV filter to keep the environment healthy even for sensitive souls, like us. A laundry room and garage keep vacation easy and comfortable. The best place to spend time is on our dock with a floating platform, which allow easy access onto our kayaks. Grill fresh fish and set up dinner on the dock, then boat out to the keys. Play golf nearby, hike or bike the Pinellas Trail that slips through the c...What we intend to become our retirement home in a few years, our 1300 sq. ft. home is on the Anclote River between the Greek Sponge docks and the Gulf. With 2 bedrooms, 4 beds, we are set up for a very comfortable relaxed vacation for 4, with a pull-out queen in the living room for the occasional visitor. We have replaced all the appliances. Our HVAC is sterilized at the intake with a UV filter to keep the environment healthy even for sensitive souls, like us. A laundry room and garage keep vacation easy and comfortable. The best place to spend time is on our dock with a floating platform, which allow easy access onto our kayaks. Grill fresh fish and set up dinner on the dock, then boat out to the keys. Play golf nearby, hike or bike the Pinellas Trail that slips through the center of old Tarpon Springs. We have two bicycles for your use, and a great Necky tandem kayak as well as a solo that give you intimate access to the river and bayous. Purchased from the family of the original home on 'Pioneer Point', we are in love with the setting and are continuing to improve the home. Because we use it as a second home it is outfitted as we need a home to be! The newest project is a dock rebuild with a ramp to a floating dock for kayak access. Shallow draft boats can tie up to the pilings.Lovely, twisted live oaks frame the water view from the house, and the dock is a favorite spot to gather for watching birds, dolphins, the local fishing fleet and the sunset. Well around the bend in the road, it becomes a quiet, private neighborhood, safe from through-traffic, yet a fun bike ride or boat ride to the beaches. Kayak south to the Greek Sponge Docks for great food and entertainment, to the bayous, or north to Miss Vickie's to eat lunch on the water. Boat out the river to Anclote Key and Shark Island for serious beach and swim time. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: DWE6215798More

About the neighbourhood
Ride in from Tarpon Springs, following the edges of the bayous. Keep winding your way to 'Pioneer Point', where Bayshore Drive ends just past our home. Because it is a dead-end we can ride bikes and walk on the road, enjoy conversations with neighbors. Birds of all types live in our quiet tree-lined neighborhood with water on both sides of the street. Bald eagle, osprey, cranes, herons, egrets, ibis, owls and woodpeckers abound. And don't forget the pelicans off the dock, while watching the dolphins round up dinner!
