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 New Port Richey

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

Good Afternoon Heather



I spent a week in your beautiful spacious house this summer in Port Richie. I have back problems but did well on this vacation. I was wondering if maybe sleeping on a good mattress helped me out. I slept in the bedroom downstairs that has the big bed. Would you be able to tell me what kind of mattress is on that bed. I would like to purchase one for my home in hopes that it helps my back. Any information would be appreciated.



Thank you,

Chris O.

Our stay was wonderful. I recommend this house to anyone that needs a relaxing vacation.

  • 5 of 5

The house is amazing. The pictures don't justify how beautiful it really is. The beds are comfortable. We had 10 in our group and there is plenty of space to have room to be comfortable.

We love this house!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this house several times. It is perfect for our family. The canal is ideal for my husband to fish with his grandchildren and the pool is very refreshing. The owners are very friendly and address any concerns we may have promptly. The location is ideal too. The neighborhood is clean and close to restaurants and shopping. It's like being at home but on vacation.

Nice home, Owner hard to work with.

  • 1 of 5

The home itself it nice and roomy but worn. Overall a nice stay. However, the first night we noticed that the ceiling under the master shower was leaking. There were two points leaking about 3 feet apart. We contacted the owner regarding this issue. She sent someone to look at it then informed us that they would have to "tear into the ceiling" and would need a day to fix it. We told her we did not want someone tearing into the ceiling for a day while we were renting the home. We were not able to use the master shower the entire time due to this issue. With several children, this was very inconvenient for us. She was unwilling to offer any refund for the issue that was of no fault of our own. We had rented the home based on the amenities that we were now not able to fully use. This is an updated review that I had previously posted. In reply to my original review, the owner stated that she informed us that it would only be a 12" x 12" opening in the ceiling and take a only 2 hours. This is not true. She also stated that she would be there for the repair if we could not be. If this was true, she also did not tell us that at any time. She also emailed asked us to change our review. She emailed us asking the following: "I hope you will find it in your heart to reconsider posting such a negative review on my vacation rental home. I'm a single mom that is struggling as it is. If it doesn't rent, then I will lose my home. I didn't keep any of your deposit for the broken chair." (The chair she mentions was a flimsy plastic poolside chair that collapsed when one of us tried to get out of it. We are lucky someone was not hurt.) When we refused to change the review as she requested (since it was truthful) her tone changed in her email responses and she became very hard to deal with when she did not get what she wanted. Even though she initiated the email conversation, she accused us of "harassment" for responding and not agreeing with her. Because of our dealings with her and the false statements in her response to our previous review we would not recommend this property.

Owner's Response: This is a nice rental home as the positive experiences of our past renters serves as a true testament to the quality of our vacation rental home. This renter has taken it upon himself to keep changing his own review!!! He's changed it 3 times and it wasn't at my request as he's stating, but because he didn't like my response. It is Homeaway that recommends the homeowner contact a guest that submits a poor, questionable, untruthful or inaccurate review and I followed their procedure and my response remains the same as the original review: The master shower has just been remodeled. There was a pipe leaking on the day the renter arrived so I sent the repairman over to the house immediately. The repairman stated it would take 2 hours max to cut a 12 x 12 hole in the downstairs ceiling to get to and fix the leaking pipe, and he could fix it as soon as possible. If they had made plans, then I the homeowner would be there during the repair. The renters decided to refuse the repair, and instead not use the shower for the rest of their rental week causing their own inconvenience.

Awesome

  • 5 of 5

The house is amazing and plenty of space. There was 9 of us and the only time we were altogether was at meal time. Loved the double patios. Plenty of room to spread out. Beds are very comfortable. We would definitely rent this house again.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We could not have asked for a more accommodating vacation home. Plenty of room for my family of 12. My adult children and grandchildren were so thrilled with the home, they didn't want to leave. All of us, from age 1 to age 52 found the home comfortable and even were able to entertain ourselves at the home during Tropical Storm Colin. I would highly recommend this home to anyone seeking a very reasonably priced vacation home where many memories can be made.

Enjoyable family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We found everything in the villa to our liking & very clean. The 4 children all had great fun in the pool. We made use of the private beach club, where the children found hermit crabs walking on the sea bed & saw dolphins swimming.

Being on route 19 made it easy to get to Clearwater & St Pete's Beach, as well as Homosassa's wild life park. Can recommend this property, very spacious in a lovely area.
