About Max & Naomi

Hi, we bought this home in 2007 with a view to have a base in Florida to be close to my brother and his family when on holiday here. It has turned out to be an amazing place. The location is great for beaches, restaurants and relaxation.

Max & Naomi purchased this villa in 2007

Why Max & Naomi chose Gulf Harbors Woodlands

Our home is open plan and has rooms with great proportions, the master suite is one of the biggest I have seen and the kitchen is great for entertaining. It is very well suited for families or couples wanting a peaceful relaxing break.

What makes this villa unique

Quiet residential area, only minutes away shops and restaurants. Unobstructed Gulf access in 10 minutes along the canal.

Great fishing from our dock.

The property was amazing

  • 5 of 5

My family of 6 spent the week in this wonderful house. It was clean and spacious. We loved the pool and the dock. We were able to rent a boat and bring it up to the dock to pickup and drop off.

New Years Paradise

  • 4 of 5

Spent the week of New Years here and had a blast. Great location to everything in the area. Just a short drive to Clearwater if interested. The house was perfect for our trip.

There are some wear tear issues but not a major issue. A heated pool would have been nice, but I did email the owner before going and he let me know it is solar heated.

We had a good time as we enjoyed the overall trip.

Needs a bit of loving

  • 3 of 5

The house is currently up for sale and clearly needs a bit of love and attention. It is however, a very well equipped house and you will not need for anything in the kitchen area. The pool however is not great and needs some attention. We did however have a fabulous holiday and loved the area.

Read this before renting

  • 1 of 5

This is the 5th home we've rented through Home away/VRBO and it was by far the worst experience. We had multiple issues with both the property and the owners during our stay. We arrived at 2:50 (check in was at 3:00) to find the cleaners smoking by the pool and the house not ready. We left to get something to eat, informing them we'd be back in an hour. Came back around 4:15 to find them again smoking by the pool. They finally finished cleaning around 4:45. The pool was filthy when we arrived and had a brick holding the drain cover in place. The pool guy arrived Monday morning, he said the filter was shut off and it was out of chlorine. He had to shock it and informed us to stay out of the pool for the rest of the day. We also couldn't get the stove to work. The gas company stopped by on Monday morning to inform us the account was overdue and they wouldn't be delivering any more gas until it was paid up. It wasn't until Wednesday that we had a functioning stove when we found out it wasn't working because the gas valve had been shut off. So from Saturday to Wednesday evening, our cooking was limited to the oven or the grill. It made for some interesting meal combinations. The home also has an ant problem. We know this isn't unusual for Florida, however it was the worst we've seen. I sprayed around the baseboards and we bought ant traps in addition to the ones already placed around the house. Throughout the stay we communicated our issues with the owners. At times they were responsive, other times not. We now haven't heard from them in almost 2 weeks. We haven't received our deposit refund and we feel we are due at least a partial refund on our rental and cleaning fee.

Overall good experience

  • 4 of 5

I really loved the house and the pool. The only downfall was that we found several cockroaches in the house ( that is really gross, I was scared that I would bring something back home) I also emailed the owner about the non-working stove and the fact that the pool vacuum was not working. None of the problems were fixed and no one has checked on the pool the whole 10 days we were there.

One of Florida's best kept secrets is the Gulf side community of Gulf Harbors Florida. This community of homes is situated just 20 miles North of Tampa Bay in Pasco County. With several community boat launches, Gulf of Mexico access by way of the two main channels it's the ideal place for a Nature Coast holiday.

Just off shore is a favorite playground for this community of boaters....both Sail and Power. The Anclote Key's lay just 2.5 miles (boat rental is only 5 mins away) off shore. Sun worshipers can enjoy the local beaches offering everything from cabanas to restrooms as well as the numerous picnic and barbecue facilities. Or, you may decide to head just off-shore for the island enjoyment found at the Anclote Keys or ‘the sand bar’.

Other Activities: Dolphin watching, manatee watching
