My wife, myself, and three children will be moving there in two or so months. I grew up in the area and remember where most of the bad areas are. However, things change. We are looking to rent an apartment for the first year and wanted to get some input before I make the call.

What does everyone think of the NW area near Ozona south of Palm harbor? One complex we are looking at is off of Alt 19.

Schools are also an issue but we are coming from Kansas City so not much surprises me.

In the village of Ozona itself??? I would live anywhere there.
If not can you give a more specific location?
Imho, there are no really bad areas of palm harbor, just some areas are nicer than others.

We looked at Harbor Club when we first got here. Would I have rented there?
It would have been at the bottom of the list, but doable. If I had children, not so sure I would consider it unless there was nothing else available.

Depending on your budget, there are more family oriented neighborhoods in this area

Have you looked at Tampa Bay craigslist? A search for 2BR rental brings up some nice ones in lansbrook, eastlake woodlands, foxchase, and one really nice one in Ozona.
There are also some nice houses listed. I can't link here but you can send me a dm if you want some links or to ask questions about neighborhoods.

2br in a nice area is the most important issue right now. I would prefer w/d hookups. We already have a set that we don't want to sell just because there are some in the units already.

Close schools for the kids would be nice. We are only going to stay in that first place for a year(or less). We would prefer a house but are trying to keep the cost down while we relocate and get our business settled there. Price range of 700-900 would be best.

I'm not sure you can rent a 2 bedroom with a family of 5. You should look into the ruling on the number of people allowed per bedroom.

oops, I missed that 3 for children. Even if it were allowed, I didn't see any 2BR here in that price range that would be anywhere near big enough.

search craigslist for 3 Br palm harbor and there is a house for $995.
There is also a 3BR in Woodland Hills for $1395-a very nice neighborhood off of Tampa Rd.

Not currently on craigslist, but you can find 3BR condos in lansbrook village for $995, or a 3BR in old palm harbor for $1100 -search floridamoves dot com and then rentals.

Lake St.George and cypress green are moderately priced neighborhoods with smaller houses that may have something for rent in your range.
So many times you can stumble upon good rentals just driving around and checking out the signs.

Or you can work with a local realtor, I wouldn't hesitate to dm TampaKaren or any of the others who post on these forums to see if they handle rentals.
