About Mark or Katja
We are a fun-loving family from England who love our home away from home. As we work very hard on our website business we wanted a place to escape to and relax, yet have the choice to be busy and have lots of things to do and see on our doorstep - this is just the perfect place.
Mark or Katja purchased this Apartment in 2000
Why Mark or Katja chose Palm Harbor
We wanted to be in the busy Clearwater Beach area of Florida where there is so much to do and see that one vacation is simply not enough, so we never get bored going back year after year. It is also easy enough in just 90 minutes to get to all the theme parks in Orlando but we didn't want to be stuck on a suburban housing development in Orlando with nothing to do but visit the parks. Instead we wanted a home on the gorgeous Florida Gulf Coast in a relaxing and homely part of Florida where you can enjoy the peace and serenity of watching the sun go down on some of the best white sandy beaches in the whole of America. Although we are in an area with so much to do and see, we made sure we bought in a beautiful quiet spot so you can choose from the best of both worlds.
What makes this Apartment unique
Our unique advantage over most normal properties is the superb location on the waters of Lake Tarpon. The boats, decking and palms make this a lovely setting for your dream vacation. You can fish off the decking and see eagles and many other beautiful birds. It is peaceful and tranquil yet the area we are in is full of malls, shops and excellent restaurants - and just minutes from beaches that have been voted the very best in the whole of America (and don't forget that includes Hawaii). Inside the apartments we have made sure they are comfortable, clean and well-equipped with everything you need to be able to sit back and relax.
