About Heather Dubay

We are so fortunate to have such a beautiful vacation home and enjoy having the opportunity to share it with others.

Heather Dubay purchased this house in 2005

Why Heather Dubay chose Sea Colony

Gulf Harbors is such a beautiful waterfront community with so many amenities and is centrally located to everything. The local beaches and Anclote Island just off the coast are truly paradise. Plus the Innisbrook PGA course is just minutes away.

What makes this house unique

The private beach and clubhouse grounds are well maintained plus having the boat ramps and boat rentals so close to this home makes Gulf access easy. Shopping and restaurants are in walking distance.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed our time @ the house as it was the perfect setup for 2 families to get away.

Perfect for a large family

  • 4 of 5

We loved the house and the area. This home was perfect for our family and accommodating for young children. We enjoyed the private dock on the canal and the pool. We were disappointed in the beds. The beds were uncomfortable and need replaced. Other than that everything was perfect.

Was very vice

  • 4 of 5

This was for a family event so we all came down to FL to join our father. The home served all our needs. Wasn't the cleanest when we got there but all in all we were very happy and would consider renting again. Now we have a better idea of what we would need to bring with us such as laundry and dish soap. Location was great and we did go down to the beach front also.

Owner's Response: Hi Deborah, Thank you for the review and we would love to rent to you again! In regards to the cleaning not being to your satisfaction, my cleaners are a phone call away and would have returned immediately to take care of any issues you had upon arrival.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for a family wedding and this was a great vacation home for us to spend time together, enjoy the weather, scenery and the pool. We were a party of 6 adults and there was more than enough room (inside and out) for all of us to be comfortable. Unfortunately Hurricane Irma interrupted the trip but Heather was fantastic! She kept us informed and provided us with all the information we needed. Thank you!
