Sims Park is also host to several outdoor festivities throughout the year and outdoor movies!

New Port Richey is 'rich' in history, and in 1926 it seemed possible that New Port Richey would become another Hollywood or at least a winter getaway for Hollywood stars. Famous celebrities from all over the world have purchased property in New Port Richey including Thomas Meighan, Irving Berlin, Gene Sarazan, Charlie Chaplin, Gloria Swanson, Johnny Cash, and Shirley Temple's aunt and uncle, whom she would visit every summer. The Hacienda Hotel, (now closed), was once the scene of many social events attended by some of the most famous celebrities of stage and screen. It is currently under renovation.

The downtown area is host to many events such as The Chasco Street Parade, (April) The Chasco Boat Parade, (April), The Christmas Street Parade and boat Parade, (December), Night in the Tropics, St. Patrick's Day, (Fitzgerald's), outdoor movies, concerts, outdoor markets, etc.

About Heather Schneider

I've lived in New Port Richey for 39 years. I also live in the same area as this rental house. I am close by in case you have any questions or need anything!

Heather Schneider purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Heather Schneider chose Tampa Bay

We specifically chose to buy and renovate this property due to the home's location. It is within walking distance to Sims Park, the library, the river, the public boat ramp, a large children's playground, and many local shops and restaurants right in the historical downtown area. We tell all of our friends that we are living in a vacationer's paradise. So, we not share it? We have put a lot of time and careful planning into renovating this home. I would say that 90% of what you see is brand new right down to the furnishings. We filled the backyard with sea shells to give it that 'beachy' feel. We also fenced in the backyard for privacy. This house comes equipped with two cruiser bicycles for sight seeing. All of the appliances, cabinets, and floors in the kitchen are new as well as the bathroom. There are hardwood floors in the living room, master bedroom, and Florida room, which have all been renovated too. This property also has two new sofas. One sofa slides out into a double bed. Six people can sleep comfortably in this home. There is also a large Florida room with 24 windows located in the front of the house. It is a great place to enjoy a cup of coffee and just relax! This home also has a large laundry room with a washer and a dryer. There are also smoke detectors in each room. We will have current issues of popular magazines for you to read such as People and US magazines. This rental is located a few houses away from the local library, and is about a half mile from the local hospital.

What makes this cottage unique

The great thing about this house is that you can walk to the restaurants, park, lake, rec center, through the historical area, the historical museum, and along the river.

Fabulous time in Mar 2017

  • 5 of 5

The house is decorate so cute and was stocked with everything we needed. Our pets enjoyed their time in NPR too. The park nearby was great for walking each day for exercise! The Chasco Fiesta came to town while we were there and got to see a GREAT car show...taking lots of photos. The location was close to every place we needed or wanted to go. If you decide to rent here, you must go to the Fish Guy for a super meal of your liking (assuming you like fish). Can't say enough good things about this rental home and we would definitely return. Thank you for a wonderful stay!!!

Very positive experience

  • 5 of 5

This home is not only cozy but very well maintained. We wanted for nothing and really appreciated it as we had flown to Florida for a quick vacation. The location is excellent, within an easy walking distance to downtown and parks. Lots of interesting places to explore in this area. We highly recommend staying here.

Wonderful vacation cottage

  • 5 of 5

The property was very clean and well stocked with everything a vacationer might need. It is nicely decorated in a "beach" theme with corresponding colors and accents. We enjoyed coffee/tea in the morning in the cheery front sun room. The fenced back yard was an added bonus for our puppy. Heather was easily available for questions and responded immediately to concerns. We enjoyed the ability to walk to local restaurants, especially "Johnny Grits" with lots of great items on their menu and an outdoor courtyard that was very pleasant. Thanks, Heather, for a wonderful vacation experience in your charming downtown cottage.

Truly a Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

I'm also writing a late review. I'm sorry, I also thought that I had left a review but didn't. My family of 3 plus our family dog spent a week here last summer. Before arriving, Heather was very attentive to my many questions. She is an excellent host! When we arrived at the home, we were pleasantly surprised with how nice everything was. We had everything that we needed during our stay and more. I like to cook every day and the kitchen was equipped with everything that I needed to prepare meals for my family. We enjoyed taking afternoon rides on the bicycles that were provided by Heather. We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation in New Port Richey! I have raved about our stay to everyone and we will be staying with Heather again this coming summer.
