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.

Nice rental, issues with stay

  • 2 of 5

While the rental is very nice, it does need help. One of the reasons we chose this rental was because of the amenities. With 7 of us, the three baths were important. After the first use of the Master Bath, our boys noticed water leaking from the ceiling (downstairs underneath). We contacted the owner about the issue. She had someone look at it and we were told the repair man would need to tear into the ceiling downstairs, which would take a day! We told her that we would not like the rental torn apart while we were using it. How inconvenient! We asked for some compensation for the loss of the Master shower, she refused stating that they could have fixed it. I explained that while someone is on vacation they do not expect to have a major repair and the ceiling torn up for a day in the rental they paid for. She was unreasonable and again refused any type of refund for this. Based on this reason, we would not recommend this rental.

Owner's Response: This is a nice rental as the positive experiences of our past renters serves as a testament to the quality of our vacation rental home. The master shower has just been remodeled. There was a pipe leaking on the day this 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 week causing their own inconvenience.

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.

40th Anniversary Trip

  • 5 of 5

We had wonderful time during our stay in this spacious house. We celebrated our 40th anniversary with our children and grandchildren. We believe our children/grandchildren enjoyed it as much as we did. Anytime we had questions, the owner Heather, was very informative and very helpful. The pool was great, the kitchen was very spacious, very equipped with the kitchen needs, the family room was very spacious also. If the kids were not in the pool, they were entertained with the amenities provided. We would recommend this house to anyone.
