About Owner/property manager

We live in central Massachusetts and have grown tired of the long, cold New England winters. With relatives in the Lakeland area we went searching for 'our paradise' and found it in this Gulf Harbors home.

Owner/property manager purchased this house in 2013

Why Owner/property manager chose New Port Richey

We looked in many areas of western Florida and fell in love with the Gulf Harbors community - the private beach is amazing, the extra wide deep canal is perfect for boating and fishing and the full-sized pool is perfect for cooling off after a great day at the beach or sightseeing in the area.

What makes this house unique

The extra wide deep water canal provides quick direct access to the open water of the Gulf. The full-sized pool is great. The sunsets from the beach are breathtaking. The location is perfect, the quaint Greek village of Tarpon Springs is 10 minutes away, USA Today's #1 Voted Best Beach town in Florida-Clearwater is a short 20 minute drive and the laid-back style of Tampa, with it's museums, restaurants and sports is 45 minutes away.

Very nice

  • 5 of 5

The property was very nice. Everything was clean, the pool was the perfect size and there was enough space around to relax and enjoy the sun (loved that it didn't have the screened in feature). The enclosed porch was more than enough if you wanted to get out of the sun. My son fished off the dock, we went to the private beach, which was very nice as well. What we really liked was how the kitchen/TV room could be closed off from the rest of the house so the early risers could enjoy their cup of coffee and watch their morning news without disturbing the rest of the house. Even though the 2nd bath was off the garage it was a very nice shower and it worked perfect for the boys. The girls owned the bathroom in the house. Another perfect situation! It was a match made in heaven. The neighbors are very nice, they gave us some shrimp and traveling tips, what more could you ask for.

Thank you for allowing us to use your facilities.

Owner's Response: We are glad that you enjoyed your stay - We also love the ability to close the bedrooms off from the kitchen/den area so we could enjoy our morning coffee on the dock watching the sunrise. As for our neighbors, they are "GREAT" - we are lucky to have such wonderful people watching over our sunshine home ! We hope to see you again !! Mike & Cheryl

Gulf Harbors

  • 4 of 5

We had a very relaxing, easy vacation-just what we we looking for. Watching the sunrise from the dock with coffee in hand and sunset from the beach was great. Lunch in the shade of the water side tree on the right was very pleasant. Easy access to grocery stores and restaurants. One suggestion would be to schedule the lawn workers the day before the pool cleaning rather than the day after. Thanks Mike and Cheryl.

Owner's Response: We are happy you enjoyed your stay ... We also enjoy watching the sunset from the private beach-gorgeous! We will certainly check with our lawn maintenance company and/or pool cleaners to see if we can schedule things differently. Thank you for the suggestion. We hope to hear from you again soon!

Thanksgiving getaway

  • 4 of 5

We chose Pilot's Place to stay over Thanksgiving as its half way between family in Tampa and in Spring Hill. It was very convenient and we enjoyed the house very much. Too cold to use the pool but the neighbors were gracious enough to take us for a boat ride on the Gulf - wonderful neighbors! The view of the canal from the house is beautiful. Nice quiet neighborhood.

Owner's Response: We are happy you chose to stay at our Florida home during your Thanksgiving vacation ... We are actually looking in to adding a heater to the pool ... The weather at that time can be hit or miss ... and our neighbors are the BEST !!! Thank you and we hope to see you again!!
