Perfect place for families

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in New Port Richey for a week from Dec 30th to Jan 6th.

Lucie was amazing. I never had to wait more than an hour to get a reply from her when I had a question, and sometimes it was within minutes! I have nothing but good things to say about her.

Here are some of the positives about the house-it was definitely more than enough room for 7 people. Really great floor plan. Comfy beds, good sized bathrooms, the garage was huge, linens were a-plenty and smelled like new. We did not get to use the pool (Florida was going through a very cold spell while we were there), but it was a nice size from what I could tell. Neighborhood was super quiet, and the neighbors we did see on New Years Eve were very friendly. Loved that the grocery store was 2 minutes away. I can't comment on the beach, as we didn't get to go. We wore tuques and mitts the entire week-there was not going to be any sunbathing going on.

All in all, we had a great stay. Thanks again, Lucie!

A wonderful vacation stay !

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent the week of our holidays at New Port Richey and we had a fantastic time. The house is beautiful, very spacious, well kept , cleaned with comfortable rooms and beds . Located in a very charming and safe neighbourhood.

Lucie the owner was very helpful, accommodating and provided us with very helpful information package prior to our arrival. Outlining great local restaurants, attractions and travel routes. Needless to say we had a blast! Kids enjoyed the heated outdoor pool, ping pong and air hockey table.

There are so many great places to visit.

Tarpon Springs/Greek Town , Bush Garden and Clear Water beach to name a few.

We highly recommend this place .

A great getaway!

Thank you Lucie and Dave for such a lovely stay 😊?

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of six stayed here. Four adults and two kids. We had a lot of room. The home is well equipped, comfortable beds and we thoroughly enjoyed the pool! Lucie, thank you for the wonderful recommendations. We loved renting the pontoon. I'm sending you a request for next Fall. Thanks again!

Its Not the Place for You!

  • 1 of 5

I messed up. I had a budget of $1500 for a stay in the Clearwater area with my family and sisters family. 8 people total. I found this house and it seemed like a 6-7 out of 10 from the pictures. The pictures are not a fair appraisal of its current conditions. We got there and the ground level had mold and a strong mold smell. The upstairs was clean but one bedroom had bedbugs on the comforter. My sister's family was pissed because I booked it. We ended up staying in the Sarasota Area for a little more but it was a much better area and less crowded. Pass on this place, look around Johns Pass or St Armand's.

Owner's Response: Brooke, Had your returned ANY of my calls or emails, I would have been able to talk to you. I'm hurt and offended by this malicious review. I was shocked when your husband left me an email. Right away the property managers sent a company to inspect the house. There were NO bed bugs. There was NO mold. I have the letter from the property manager's company along with the company that checked for bed bugs and mold. They went in THAT day. Since you didn't stay there I also refunded your money entirely right away. As far the pictures are concerned, we change the bedding on the beds and replaced the upstairs patio furniture. That's the only difference. By your last sentence in your review, it sounds to me that you wanted a different area and made malicious comments about my house even with everything I tried to do to help and refund your money. Should you ever decide that you want to see the report that there was no such thing in my house. Please feel free to contact me. In the meantime, have a wonderful Fall. Lucie Hunter
