Overview

About the property

Welcome to Cotee Cottage

Conch Cottage by the Cotee is located in a charming riverside neighborhood, just a short stroll from downtown New Port Richey. Named for its close proximity to the Pithlachascotee River (“Cotee” to the locals!), our lovingly restored 1920’s vacation rental home is situated on a large corner lot with live oak, palm and citrus trees. Here, you can experience the peace and tranquility of “Old Florida” without sacrificing any contemporary amenities. It is the perfect spot for either a romantic getaway or a writer’s retreat! Our one bedroom, one bathroom cottage is ideally suited for a couple or single person, though it can comfortably accommodate a third guest. With its brightly painted rooms and tropical decor, the interior is especially inviting; we think we’ve managed to bring the Florida sunshine right into our home! The bedroom has a queen-sized bed and there is a pull out sofa bed in the living room. The bathroom is roomy with both a tub/shower and plenty of storage space for toiletries. There is a television in the living room with cable service. In the bright kitchenette, you’ll find everything you need to prepare and enjoy meals at home including a stove, fridge, microwave, toaster and coffee maker. Our kitchen is equipped with dishes, glassware and utensils. The dining room is located beside the kitchen. For your convenience, we also provide bed linens and bath and beach towels during your stay. There is cable television, WiFi and a cell phone provided for your use. And for your comfort, our cottage has central heat and a/c. There is ample off street parking . Boats are welcome, too.This lovely home was built in the 1920's when this small Florida town was close to becoming the original "Hollywood". Film stars flocked here to build stately homes along the beautiful Cotee River. Our house was built by a banker and investor named George Sims who used to entertain film stars visiting and re-locating to the area. Ed Wynn, Shirley Temple, George Gershwin, Joseph and Rose Kennedy among others used to arrive in town to fish, socialize, golf and take in some sunshine. Gloria Swanson built a lovely home along the river and her "family crest" still adorns the stucco walls of that house today. Gene Sarazin, the "Tiger Woods" of his day, designed and built a sumptuous Golf Course Country Club that stretched along the river to Babe Ruths' house.

Comfortable, modest, well situated, older triplex. Attentive and friendly hosts.

  • 4 of 5

We were looking for comfortable accommodations within a relatively short driving distance of the nature preserves, parks, and beaches we wanted to visit. This cottage, one section of an older, but well maintained, triplex, fit the bill. Our host (Alex) was very accommodating and went out of his way to meet us after a late arrival and provide us with information about the area (maps, local events, eateries, outfitters, etc.).

The space could accommodate 4 people (on 1 queen bed and a futon) but is probably better suited for a couple. The sleeping quarters (with the queen bed) are a bit tight with one side of the bed almost against a wall so people with mobility challenges or those who sleep on the right side of the bed should bear this in mind.

Kitchen and bath were well appointed. There was a television in every main room and there's an extensive video library including classics to comedy. Parking was very convenient and right in front of the cottage.

New Port Richey is a sleepy, up and coming little town with lots to offer those who like to walk, explore, or talk with locals, or just relax. This cottage served us well as a hub for the kayaking, beach exploring, and relaxing that we wanted to do. Several locally owned restaurants, and bistros are within walking distance and more are in construction.

Quaint and Clean

  • 4 of 5

Had a nice stay in the cozy Cotee Cottage! Owner was very attentive and helped make our stay enjoyable:)

My only things that would have made it better:

-queen bed needs a pillow top

-for a few beach chairs, a cooler, maybe even a beach umbrella to be provided at the house for guests

Owner's Response: Will include a pillow top for the next traveler. Good idea on the beach equipment.

Older style home located close to a park and river in New Port Richey. Apartment was clean and comfortable except for the bed which had a firm mattress. Numerous activities in downtown area which is walkable distance from location. Owners/landlords very nice and easy to work with.
