Work Hard, Rest Comfortably! January 2015 By Amy (Palm City, FL)
Clean, comfortable, friendly & professional owners, and well stocked for the hard working crew of our company. Close to the beach. After a long day of outdoor work, it was good to come "home". Hard to please everybody? Not in this place! Happy employees make for profitable business ventures. Saving this for future use. See you soon!
Fantastic Vacation House! From Kasia, Poland, Feb 2015
We spent the best four week vacation traveling through Florida with our two little daughters (1 and 5 years old). Best part of it was our stay in Clearwater. Tropical Haven was relaxing and perfectly placed for our multiple plans: BBQ by the pool, stay at the beach and visit attractions.
First of all - the beach is a really short drive away (5-10 minutes) and it's awesome! The best sand I've seen in a long time :) It's clean and there are sunbeds and sun shades available to rent. Sunset from the Pier 60 is breathtaking!
During our stay we managed to drive to DisneyWorld's Magic Kingdom, Orlando Sea World, Busch Gardens, Lego Land, Salvador Dali Museum and Kennedy Space Center at Cape Canaveral. It was great to wake up in the morning, have breakfast and spontaneously head to the chosen location which is within 1-2 hours drive from the house. We were even lucky enough to see KSC and go to the Strawberry Festival near Tampa!! Awesome!
The house is big and spacious. Actually it was even bigger than we needed, which was great for the kids. We spent most time in the patio room with the view on the pool. It's sort of a family room with games you can play, watch the TV, check out internet (there is WIFI) or just hang out.
Back patio was more than we expected: green, flowery and full of friendly geckos, birds and squirrels. It wasn't warm enough to swim in the pool as much as we would like to, but we had a great time with the BBQ! The pool itself is big and clean so whenever the temperature got up, we were in :)
The kitchen had all we needed and with a nearby Publix Supermarket, we were able to have some meals at the house. At the same time there are so many restaurants nearby that anytime we didn't feel like cooking we could just eat out. Overall, I would highly recommend Tropical Haven as a perfect vacation house.
Above all, Linda was a great person to deal with!
"It was awesome:)" from Tinley Park, IL, June 2014
We had a great time, loved it there. The house had everything we needed! It was fun to jump in the pool and sit in the back yard, kitchen was nice too, my mom was the main cook and she liked it, she had everything in the kitchen she needed. The beach was close too, 5 to 10 min drive. You will have a great time when you go:)
"Tropical Haven" by Georgia from Quincy, Feb 2014
Tropical Haven is just that. A quiet peaceful getaway.
Nice yard pool was beautiful. Unfortunately, the temps
were not quite hot enough. The house was very nice. The neighborhood was very peaceful and we had a very restful vacation. The owner was very nice.
"Holiday Family Vacation" January 2014, by Paul (Racine WI. , USA)
My family & I went to Clearwater, FL, to visit family in Dunedin, for the holidays. This was a perfect location for us, 5 min from family & 6-8 min. from the beach. We had a group of 8, and my kids' ages range from 17 to 26, so the area was ideal, with fast food near by and stores. The house was big enough with all of us & extended family to have cook-outs a couple of days, & play games, yet being a quiet neighborhood, when I wanted to relax . The house was well cleaned with very comfortable beds, which is important to me (because I spend a lot of time living out of hotels, in my line of work), so also, was the privacy of a house. The next time I visit family there I will rent this house again, but maybe leave the kids behind. LOL !!
"Exactly what we were looking for! Love this property"
Kayla from Battleground, July 2013
Our stay at Tropical Haven was perfect! The home was very clean and spacious. We absolutely loved the pool and used it everyday. We stayed for a week while our daughter participated in 18U Gold national softball tournament, the location of the home to the softball fields where within 5 min. which made it so nice for us. The beach was within 5-10 min drive from the home, and the beaches in Clearwater were to die for! Beautiful!! The home was very well maintained, amenities were stocked well and Linda was attentive to all our needs anytime we contacted her. We will definitely love to stay here again when we return to Florida, and would recommend this property to all our friends.
"We’ll be back to Tropical Haven - Fabulous Place!"
Wendi from PA, June 2013
This is the first house rental we've ever had and we were so pleased when we entered into Tropical Haven. Our first observation was how spacious it was followed by the cleanliness of everything. Our daughter quickly spotted the snacks left on the coffee table for us. There were only three of us staying there so it was much bigger then we needed but the extra space was just like being at home. The beds were so comfortable that it made us go to the store as soon as we returned home to buy ourselves a new mattress.
The items in the house were all available to use from the condiments in the fridge, the collection of movies, the pool toys to the grill on the back porch by the pool. There is even hairdryers, irons, etc. that can be used which is nice as well.
The neighborhood is very quiet as we rarely even saw anyone. My husband went to the bagel shop around the corner every morning to buy us bagels and coffee and we enjoyed them outside by the pool listening to the birds chirp while enjoying all the tropical foliage that surrounded the property. It was very beautiful and relaxing.
The location is a very close to Clearwater Beach which we visited Winter the dolphin, Treasure Island to go para-sailing, Dunedin to go jet skiing, Tampa to go to the Tropical Smoothie Café, and Orlando to go to Discovery Cove (highly recommended), Epcot, and Sea World just to name some of the nearby places we visited.
The price was very affordable. We compared staying at a hotel for a week or staying at Tropical Haven and the price really was comparable.
Linda was so wonderful to work with. She was quick to answer any questions we had before or during our stay. She called us when we got there to make sure we safely arrived and called back again to tell us of her favorite places in the area we might want to check out. The next time we are in the area we definitely will be calling Linda up to stay here.
Tropical Haven is well worth it!!Get the full listing »
