Charming Florida Luxury Waterfront living- 3 Bedrooms - 2 Baths - (Sleeps 7)
We are originally from Australia and moved to the USA in 1988 and bought this house soon after for its beautiful location and incredible views. We enjoy having our guests who truly appreciate our home and treat it as if it was their own. We get a lot of repeat guests who have become close friends...

Perfect little piece of paradise to end our Florida vacation
After spending ten days charging around Orlando with three teenage kids we thought we deserved a relaxing few days to chill down and this property was just built and located for that. Far enough away to be peaceful and close enough to HWY 19 to have shopping and restaurants not too far away.
The property is not new but then it doesn’t pretend to be, it is full of unique charm and we loved the quirky decor, everything you need is there, clean and works just fine.
Having said that the inside of the property is lovely, it’s not really the inside we came for and sitting on the deck, in the pool or indeed in the fantastic hot tub while the sun sets over the Gulf of Mexico was just amazing. Watching the pelicans and egrets swooping and the fish jumping and some rare sightings of dolphins swimming past was also just superb.
Fantastic property and the owner Dianne is simply the best. Easy to talk to, responsive, caring and great fun too.
Highly recommended and if we ever trip across the Atlantic to Florida again we will definitely be looking in.
G'day David and family,

Wonderful view, beautiful sunsets!
We stayed at Gulf Coast Heaven for a few days in March. We loved the location and the surrounding area. It was close to several nice beaches and the lovely town of Tarpon Springs. Dianne was a caring hostess and really wanted to make sure we had a good visit. We visited with our daughter, her husband and two grandchildren and the house was perfect for our needs. It was too cool for the pool but the kids enjoyed the hot tub. All in all a great vacation!
How nice you took the time to write a review, yes all the guests seem lo really enjoy our home :-)) and the care we take to make them feel at home.
not to mention those incredible sunsets, private island boat charter, we are
unique and ask you spread the word to your friends. Cheers! Dianne
Owner is dishonest in her dealings regarding maintenance; home needs updates and repairs
I am a rental property owner and have stayed at numerous rental homes with my family and friends without incident. We always treat the home as if it was ours and maintain it as if we owned it. This owner gave us a list of jobs to complete on our checkout which we completed fully plus swept the floors and returned everything to their original positions. Despite doing this the owner insulted my son, insulted our country of origin and accused us of being messy. She then charged us $50 for damage stating that we "made a mess on floors, untidy with dirt, grass and sand and did not use mats provided". These statements are completely untrue. The only thing more we could have done was to scrub the floors the morning we left. I am disappointed that the owner reacted in this irrational manner and now understand that no matter what condition I left the property in, it would result in us unjustly losing some of our damage deposit. It is unfortunate that the owners unscrupulous behavior took away from our vacation. While staying at the house we fielded calls form unpaid service people looking the owner regarding payment for their work on the property. The owners actions aside, the property is dated and in need of updating and maintenance. The view is beautiful and the community and neighbors are very nice. I would not recommend staying here mostly due to the owner.
I am not surprised that this client wrote such a review, when I contacted him about the state of the floors the comment he made is not fit for this review,
although he did give permission to deduct the fee for extra cleaning and did not deny the situation.
We have many wonderful reviews and are sorry we didn't have our booking company do a full check on them. Dianne
Had a great time!
Our family of five really enjoyed our stay. The views were fantastic. Plenty of room to spread out. Our host Dianne was great and the boat tour with Todd was great too. We enjoyed fantastic sunsets, dolphins feeding right in front and egrets walking along the pool edge. We really had fun.
Many thanks for your kind words about your stay.
We so enjoyed meeting you and hope you can show off that suntan
when you get home.
Would appreciate you letting your friends know of us.
May you have a Blessed year !
