Awesome vacation home.
We enjoyed our stay at The St Michael House. The location is amazing - it is close to a beach area, downtown, sponge docks, parks and nature preserves. The kitchen has everything you need and the gas grill was great for grilling. It is walking distance to downtown and we enjoyed wandering in and out of the many interesting shops. The historic Sponge Docks are also walking distance with Greek restaurants and bakeries. Hellas Restaurant is a must for Greek food. We were interested in the near by parks and nature preserves. We spent many days hiking/walking and taking photos of local wildlife. There is a local beach and Honeymoon State Park with its beaches and osprey/owl preserve and they are awesome and are close by. The ower, Jim was helpful and accommodating and he is there if you need anything. Highly recommend.

Map
About the neighbourhood
Our rental is located in the most historic neighborhood of Tarpon Springs. It was the area first settled in the 1800’s around the abundant fresh water of Spring Bayou. The bayou is home to manatee, dolphin and other wildlife. Craig Park is located next to the bayou. It has a small museum, tennis courts, a public boat ramp and many benches set beneath massive oak trees. A sea wall surrounds the part of the bayou closest to town and this is a favorite of people taking their morning or evening walk. Kayaks are available for rental from local dealers. Bicycles can be rented in town and power boats can be provided by Marinas located along the Anclote River near the Sponge Docks.
Getting around
Having a car is advisable in order to fully explore nearby towns and area beaches. There is both bus and trolley service in the area but they are rather slow.
