About Ben Matheson

We love to travel as much as you do. We never seems to stay in the same place for long and buy new homes to explore new parts of the US and Europe. Each time we we move to new home our old one becomes a vacation villa so we can share the wonderful locations we've enjoyed so much.

Ben Matheson purchased this house in 2001

Why Ben Matheson chose Tampa Bay

New Port Richey is an affordable way to be close to everything. Busch Gardens, Tarpon Springs, Tampa, Clearwater etc. So close to it all but without the crowds and half the price.

What makes this house unique

This home is properly permitted and licensed as a vacation rental. Don't risk your vacation by renting from one of the homes in the area renting illegally. You risk being evicted in the middle of your trip. Feel free to call Pasco county at 727-847-8171 to verify if a home can legally be rented.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Awesome stay, well worth the $1300. Good restaurants close by. Private beach was awesome for the kids. Caught some fish from the dock and even had several Dolphin swim right by in the canal. Will definitely be back next year.

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed an awesome spring break in this home! The pool and game room went over well with the kids! The pictures do not do the home justice at all. It definitely feels like a home away from home. We are ready to go again!

Lacklustre Communication

  • 2 of 5

Though my date of arrival says Jan 2nd 2016, I actually stayed in this rental property in October of 2015 (October 15 to 22nd). The calendar did not let me go back further.

We generally enjoyed our stay, however, there are a few things worth mentioning which others should be made aware of before booking this property:

- Another reviewer mentioned "the kitchen is not well stocked with cooking pans etc". I would tend to agree, the kitchen could have a included a few more items, but this did not specifically dampen our stay...

- There are no extra blankets, sheets, linens provided other than what is on the beds. Before booking this property, we were aware of the 3 bedrooms, and accepted the fact that one of adults in the group would sleep on the couch in the basement. After all, the homeowner included in the description of the property that a pull-out sleeper is located in the games room. It would therefore be a safe assumption that accompanying blankets and sheets would be provided. This was not the case. We called the homeowner several times and left a voicemail to request blankets and sheets. Our calls and voicemail were never returned during the duration of our weeklong stay.

- Last but not least, my deposit was NOT RETURNED within the stated period of time after we vacated the property. I emailed and called the homeowner several times after I returned to Canada about this. I ended up having to contact VRBO customer service directly, who in turn emailed the homeowner to "remind" how to return the deposit. About 48 hours after this, the homeowner returned my deposit, however, this was WELL AFTER the period of time stated in the contract.

I should not have had to contact VRBO about an issue with my refundable deposit. We left the property in the same condition as what it was when we arrived.

Owner's Response: This guests violated our rental agreement and was asked to leave. The home was occupied by numerous individuals not listed on the rental agreement and the number of people actually staying at the home far exceeded our allowable limit.

Lovely home to spend Christmas with family

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful home with large living room dining room and kitchen. In the living room was a large window / door leading to a screened-in Lanai. Three upstairs bedrooms with a double sink tub shower in the master bedroom and another bathroom for the other two bedrooms was very convenient. The family/ Recreation room on the floor level provided Recreation for those who wanted to play games on the TV or pool table. This area led to a beautiful swimming pool and dock area. We wished that the swimming pool would have been heated but there was a heated pool in the community center pool if we would have used it. My family had plenty of room to enjoy themselves and it was a beautiful Gathering Place for them.

Well presented accommodation

  • 4 of 5

From when we arrived we felt at home, over all the place was well presented showing various damage due to customers not showing care for someone else's property. Expected a visit or regular calls from the owner, no left alone to enjoy the place. Kitchen and bathrooms were excellent and clean. Nothing to complain about thanks to Ben for his help.

Great home for vacation!!

  • 4 of 5

We have just returned from our vacation at this home and we had a wonderful time. Overall the house was in a great location close to restaurants and stores. Not to far from local tourism like Tarpon Springs(20min), Clearwater Beaches(45min), Tampa(45 min).We spent most of our time at the house fishing and swimming. The pool was a good size and had a shallow end which was good for our kids. The dock was a great place to fish from. The first couple of days we were able to see dolphin playing in the canal in the evenings. We brought our own crab trap and caught several crabs. We also found that fishing was best in the middle of the day and in the evenings. I surprisingly caught most of my fish around the hottest part of the day. The interior of the home was perfect it was nice, but not so nice that we were afraid our children couldn't touch anything like some other places we have stayed. The house is much bigger than the pictures make it appear. I found that the kitchen supplied all of the pots, pans, and utensils we needed to do most of our cooking at the house. The Grill outside worked and had gas which we appreciated. The master bathroom was very large and had a over-sized garden tub that was perfect for relaxing in. The game room was large and the AC unit worked great.But, it was missing darts for the dart board and the pool table only had one pool stick, they do have an XBox which can be nice for kids and adults. Both of the the spare bedrooms were a normal size with plenty of closet space to put your bags away. There is also a cot that folds out as well if you need another bed. Overall I would say this is a great house to stay at in this area. I looked at several in this community and this by far was the best location in this price range and much nicer than some of the others we looked at.

The community beach was about a 10min drive away from the house but it has restrooms and showers. The guards at the gate are super friendly and helpful. The beach was ok, we went once during our week stay. There was a lot of seaweed washed up on the beach and in the water. But you can tell they try and clear it and there were clear spots to play. ( We live close to the ocean so my beach standard is probably not the same as everyone's)We did drive to Clearwater Beach which was beautiful and worth the trip. This was a great house with everything you need! We would stay there again!

Awesome Family Vacation and Great Home

  • 4 of 5

This house was perfect for my vacation with my kids and grandchildren. The family room was perfect for teenage boys. The private beach was great for our 7 month old baby and 3 year old grandchildren. The kitchen was large enough and had what we needed. We cooked almost every night. We caught crabs off of the dock and cooked them. The pool was amazing to relax in the evening, and the screened in porch was awesome for morning coffee. We loved the house, the area and our vacation. The owner was very responsive and friendly.
