Take a short car ride to many of the world famous attractions like Disney, Universal, Busch Gardens or Sea World. Don't settle for a hotel when you can be at home in a very large house with 5 private bedrooms, a private screened pool and much more.

It's a beautiful walk or bike ride with bike rental companies nearby.

Of course there's the famous Tarpon Springs Sponge Docks - only 1.2 miles away, with America's largest Greek community.

The whole street is full of restaurants and various shops, with ice cream shops and pastry shops along the way. And the authentic Greek restaurants... I must say, wonderful. After visiting and experiencing Greece myself for a summer, I personally feel Tarpon Springs does it better.
