Description

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Flor-a-mar - Galen's Retreat

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Clean beach cottage with renovated kitchen, living room, bathroom and bedrooms! Relax in the living room watching the deep water canal that is your back yard! Or sit on the dock watching the sunset. Maybe a ride on the 14 -foot Carolina Skiff over to Florida's ONLY private beach....

All these options and more are yours at the cottage by the sea. The deep water canal will thrill you with the big motor and sail boats that make use of the passage for deep-water access into the gulf. Great fishing in the canal and inlet to the gulf! Enjoy the wildlife as it swims and flies past your back door!

Get ready to enjoy this very clean and cozy, renovated beach house. Galen's Retreat is a small slice of hassle-free living in the heart of Florida's Gulf Coast. Willing to trade for another vacation property.

What makes this house unique

My wife and friends had a wonderful week in New Port Richey , the house, the owner Matt and caretaker Mickey were most accommodating and we would certainly rent this house again,

Thanks again,

It was perfect for us. Having the little boat made all the difference to us! The cottage is on the canal and its clean, neat, and uncluttered, It had everything we needed. Matt and Mickey were great to work with and we will be going back. The area was very nice with local restaurants that were excellent close by. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a nice romantic get away! PS - don't beach the boat on the sandbar. Hard to move it later.
