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.

True Paradise

  • 5 of 5

One week at this place was not long enough! My family had an amazing time. The house was perfect for us. We loved how cozy it was and the convenience of having everything we needed. We spent most of our time either in the pool or on our boat! The neighbors were very nice. Also, the owners of this house were extremely nice and very helpful. We look forward to another relaxing stay here in the future.

Gulf coast hideaway

  • 3 of 5

We stayed at New Port Richey as a family of three. The bungalow is perfectly spacious for a family group of 4 and would accommodate a few more people on sofas etc. The draw of this place is access to the private beach. This is just so special - a spotless beach with only a few people on it. We saw dolphins swimming just 10 yards from the shore. The location just off US 19 is also great - very quiet with the connectivity of the highway 5 minutes away.

The property itself is OK. The bedrooms have been nicely decorated, but the decor in the rest of the house is ageing and could do with an update - think back to the late 80's. The kitchen has everything you would need except a kettle so be prepared to bring your own if you need water boiling. The outdoor pool is great - nice not to be hemmed in by the usual Florida insect netting. The BBQ facilities were also fine - we used these throughout our stay. Although ageing in places everything was spotlessly clean on our arrival, which is the main thing we look for in a holiday rental. The neighbour is extremely welcoming and a mine of useful local information.

All in all we had a great stay, and if you are looking to be based north of Tarpon Springs this would be an excellent pick.

Owner's Response: Hello Tim - We are pleased that you had such a good week at the house - We will most certainly add a "proper" tea kettle at the house - You did leave some wonderful Yorkshire Gold tea bags at the house that we so much enjoyed - Cheryl & Mike

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! Mike & Cheryl
