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.

Great accomodations. Room for everyone. Would stay here again.

  • 4 of 5

Oven took a long time to heat. 30 minutes to heat to 350. Washer and dryer took a long time but certainly served the purpose. Kids loved the game room and the dock for fishing. The pool was wonderful. Really handy to Tarpon Springs. Ate twice at Catches. Good place to eat.

Perfect house for large family

  • 5 of 5

We loved the size, and everything we needed was included. Great for large families that like to spend time together but also need to spread out. Lots of kids accessories like highchairs, walkers, crib, etc. Kitchen fully stocked, plenty of towels and sheets, lots of seating areas and comfortable beds. The pool table was a big hit.

Very clear communication by owner and in guest book.

Very nice pool and hot tub at the clubhouse which was a 3 minute drive from the house. Pool at the house was very cold but you can pay extra to have it heated if desired.

The private beach is man-made and has more of a lake feel. We have never been to the gulf side of Florida and didn’t realize that there were no waves, yet the water is beautiful. We went to Honeymoon island one day, which was a 40 minute drive but well worth it. It has white sand, beautiful blue water and looked like a tropical island. If the weather was better we would have gone more than one day.

The location was a little too far from other activities for our personal preference but if you are not looking to run around a lot the price is great and well worth what is offered.

Very nice!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect fit for our group with plenty of room. We really enjoyed the quiet neighborhood and the pool was great for the kids. We even saw a few dolphins swimming up the channel! The location was great for us too, not a long drive to Tarpon Springs (highly recommmed going there) or Clearwater Beach. Great communication from the owner also. Just prior to our arrival we were notified that the washing machine was not working and within a day a new one was delivered. We enjoyed our stay!

Rent this and your desires will be fulfilled!

  • 5 of 5

We came to Florida to enjoy the beaches but loved the house so much that we spent almost the entire week around the pool or fishing off the dock. After a 16 hour drive all of us were extremely exhausted... but, I was relieved to find that when I laid in my bed I literally melted into it. I woke up feeling wonderful and my two youngest had snuck into the bed.

Some things the owner have left out of this listing should be shared: there is a crab trap on the dock (we put some bait in it and caught tons of crabs!), water pressure in the showers is very good, there are lots of board games around the house that kept the 8 kids we had with us busy, also a stash of toys in the garage that made a rainy day go by smooth, there is a blender for mamas special drinks, an intercom that also plays music, the neighbors keep to themselves, tons of inflatables at the pool, TVs in almost every room (although you won’t use them, lol)...they have pretty much thought of everything.

I honestly wish I could stay here forever. The house was so comfortable it felt like home. We feel blessed to have been able to enjoy 7 days here.

Fishing: we caught tons of cat fish, a stingray, some sort of angel fish, and few others I have never seen or heard of!

The private beach: the best part about it it you literally have a private area the picnic tables, a grill, and it’s covered from the sun. For extra privacy there are beautiful painted walls between each family’s beach area.

The clubhouse: the pool is heated and large, the hot tub was so relaxing and clean, the view was amazing!!!

The owner: She met all of our needs with a promptness.

The house: huge, clean, nicely decorated. The dinning room table must have cost a fortune! 12 people comfortably ate almost every meal together around this table.

I really wanted to include everything I wish I would have known before because it would have made my decision to pick this house just that much easier. I hope that knowing all this makes yours simple. Don’t let this one get away.
