The Greek heritage of this area makes it truly unique in the entire United States. The Greeks first settled this area around the turn of the century and started the Sponge Diving Industry. This is the only place in the US where sponge diving is actively pursued as an industry. The colorful traditions and atmosphere introduced to this area by the Greek sponge divers has continued today with sponge auctions, sponge diving exhibitions, and the largest Epiphany celebration in the United States. Visitors can enjoy the authentic Greek food in the more than 20 restaurants, shop in the sponge and souvenir stores, and board cruise boats for half day or day trips for casino gambling or fishing. The Sponge Docks are listed in the National Historic Districts register. Along with the sponge docks are more than 140 art gallery/studios, antique shops, boutiques and restaurants. There is also a Performing Arts Center and Cultural Center which host several annual events and festivals.
Florida Beaches: The beaches along the Sun Coast of Florida are some of the safest and nicest in the world. These include the following: 1. Clearwater Beach 2. Anclote Key 3. Fred Howard Park 4. Honeymoon Island 5. Caladesi Island 6. Treasure Island 7. St Pete Beach 8. Fort De Soto Park The string of beaches from Anclote Key in the north to Fort De Soto in the South covers 36 miles and has some of the best beaches in the United States, including Hawaii. These beaches range from isolated, undeveloped tropical islands accessible only by boat (Anclote Key, Caladesi Island) to packed tourist beaches with all the souvenir shops, grouper sandwich shops and nightclubs. The people that rank beaches, place Caladesi Island State Park, Anclote Key State Park, and Fort De Soto park in the top ten beaches in the United States, with most of the other top ten beaches being in Hawaii. Clearwater Beach is the most famous of the beaches that are on the barrier islands. On an island all its own, Clearwater Beach is the major 'tourist beach' on the Fl Sun Coast. Every type of beach oriented activity can be found here. There are many great grouper sandwich shop where you can enjoy lunch relax with a cool beverage. With its many shops and miles of beach, the entire family can have fun here. The gentle slope of the beaches into the water & the calm waters of the Gulf of Mexico make all the beaches on the Florida Sun Coast very different from the Atlantic ocean beaches on the east coast of Florida where large waves crash onto the beach. Fred Howard Park was first opened in 1966 and is located at the end of a mile long causeway west of Florida Ave. in Tarpon Springs, this is a beautiful beach area. The swimming and sunbathing is excellent. The facilities include very nice sheltered picnic areas, playgrounds for the kids, restrooms, BBQ grills and beach showers. Bring your fishing poles and your wind surfers. This is a very popular park with the local Floridians and over 2 million people visit the park annually.

Have you ever bought something & realize it was worth every dime? Ditto for this villa @ Becan Groves. A very clean outstanding value for the price. A great location for restaurants, shopping, with walmart & Publix grocery store near by.Westfield Countryside mall just down the road a few miles a 2 floor mall w/major stores, it even has a ice skating rink inside the mall. Another plus for this villa is the property manager & the owner, both are great to communicate with. The on site property manager made sure our needs wre addressed. Great place for a retied couple to spend a few months in the warm Fl. sunshine. The time spent there just went to fast. Highly recommend to everyone. Enjoy.

My wife and I rented this villa for the winter (snowbirds) and couldn't have been more pleased! The place was very clean and well stocked for all our needs. The neighborhood was quiet and well maintained and the neighbors were friendly and helpful. The location is ideal with access to all the gulf coast beaches within minutes. There is something for everyone in the area; hiking, cycling, golfing, water sports, sightseeing and excellent dining! Within easy driving distance, we had access to all of Tampa/ St. Pete activities. Tampa International is only a 25 minute drive. My wife and I would definitely rent again. Don, the owner, was exceptional. He attended to our every need and question and was easily accessible. We would recommend this villa to anyone seeking a relaxing and enjoyable short or long term stay in sunny Florida.

My wife and I have stayed at this Villa for the past two years and look forward to staying there again in 2013. It was exactly as adveritsed and then some. It was very clean with all appliances in working order and fully furnished with all that is required to feel at home. The owners representative lives in the community and is available and proved to be of help with knowledge of the area. We have been going to Florida for over thirty years and find this area to be the most enjoyable. We are active seniors and enjoy the beaches in the area including Clearwater and our favorites at Indian Shores. Fishing is great and there are many activities within a 1/2 hour to 45-minute drive: racetrack, casino, theatre, museums and local craft shows. It is very close to all major stores and restaurants, for variou budgets. The owner Don is a pleasure to work with and, for the price, has an exceptional Villa.

Nice quiet location, very clean, felt very safe there. Don was very helpful when we had to call him when we arrived at 4 a.m. and were not sure if we were at the right place. Pool was beautiful. would definitely be great for a long stay, as we were only there for 3 1/2 (LOL) nights. (Plane was delayed) Nice cozy place.
Wal-Mart just down the street was nice. Had everything you needed. Neighborhood was friendly and landscaping throughout community was well taken care of. Over all it was a nice place to stay with my kids, better than a hotel.

Four of us needed a place to stay for a week in Palm Harbor, not far from my brother’s place for a family reunion. We were two couples, and we found the to be a perfect fit. We could not have been more pleased with the accommodations, the location, and the friendliness of the owner’s father, who live locally and can address any issues that come up. The house is in a quiet neighborhood but within a few minutes’ drive to Publix, Target, US Highway 19, and plenty of restaurants (e.g., Carrabba’s, Marathon Grill, Lucky Dill Deli). The villa has a small, very private, nicely appointed yard for afternoon sunning. The kitchen was fairly well supplied with dishes and utensils and comfortable to work in (we all like to cook); some basic foodstuffs, such as vinegar and spices, were also on hand. It is obvious that this house is very well cared for; everything was orderly, in good condition, and spotlessly clean.

This villa rental is exceptional and has everything you would need for both a short or long term stay. In addition to the amazing amenities; this property provides privacy, easy access to the community and entertainment options for the entire family. Don was very attentive to any need or question we had and was accessible and very timely with communication during the reservation process.
My wife was very pleased with the cleanliness of the villa right from the time we entered the home. Additionally, the owner worked with me to meet specific requests I had based on my situation. This rental villa is highly recommended over any comparable cost hotel/rental in the area! My wife and I had a wonderful time!

Stayed November, 2014
Great Place, Great location, Great owners, what more can we say. This will be our 2nd year returning as a retired couple. December is a great time in Florida. This property has many new amenities within. The content looks brand new. The accommodations are very very clean, bright, and has all the amenities needed for a great stay. Even 2 swimming pools. Don makes for a great owner. A class act for a rental property, better service than we would get at any hotel, thats for sure. His property manager is very friendly and full of great ideas. They make it easy to rent, stay, and play. Would highly recommend to anyone. Enjoy your stay, we did!!
