AHOY MATES! Welcome to our beautiful updated and remodeled 4 Bedroom, 2 Bath home, featuring a split plan bedroom layout with an open floor plan concept. As you make your way in through the double front entry doors and into a large foyer, you'll find yourself walking into a nice size great room displaying cathedral ceilings and a view of the water through a 12 foot opening from a pocket sliding door.
The updated kitchen has a nice size island that seats 4 comfortably and is great for gathering around for meals or a good conversation. There is also an eating area that seats 6 with water views from three sides.
The master suite boasts a walk in shower and double sinks. Enjoy walking through a patio slider leading into the pool area for a early morning dip or mid night swim.
The second bedroom has its own access leading to the main bath and has a 6 foot French style door which leads into a patio in the back yard.
Our home comfortably sleeps 8 people having queen size beds in each room. Always room for more if needed. Full laundry room is there if needed.
Enjoy the Florida sunshine in the back yard featuring an in ground heated pool and an outdoor kitchen, all enclosed with a newly install fence for safety. There is also a covered lanai for those who prefer a little less sunshine.
You have an opportunity to do some fishing off the floating dock in the yard, You may even prep your day's catch at a cleaning station on the main dock if your lucky enough. Sometime during the day you can take one of the two kayaks (provided as part of rental) for a spin around the neighboring waters.
We also supplied four bicycles for those who want to explore the neighborhood.
As far as parking goes, there is enough off street parking for up to four cars on the newly installed brick paver driveway.
As far as comfort goes, a new a/c system was installed within the last couple of years. Believe me, you will be delighted the first day you arrive and will not want to leave at the end of your stay.
My wife and I have been married for over twenty eight years. Since the day we made the decision to take the ride into the area, nothing has satisfied us more than spending time in the sunshine state.
Mark Muraczewski purchased this house in 2008
We have our dream getaway now for seven years.
It all started when my wife and I came to this area with our two sons over twenty years. It all started a year after we were married. We decided to see what all the talk was about after listening to many conversations about the sunshine state.
We made a decision to take the drive. We were nervous, but excited at the same time. It turned out to be one of our best decisions we made. Great weather and this incredible location made the perfect combination for a fantastic vacation. We were hooked. Since then, we spent every vacation in the Florida sunshine. Each time we came down, we found endless activities to enjoy and create memories from. As we look back at the day we hopped in the car to venture down here, we know that it was one of the best decisions we made, aside from having our two sons of course.
We chose our home because of the location, being close to many attractions, being five minutes from the Gulf of Mexico and having great restaurants within a short drive of the house and the incredible beaches within a short drive. All this made the decision easy to settle here. So you will not be disappointed.
When we decided to start looking for our vacation getaway, I spent endless hours venturing onto different websites looking for that diamond in the rough. In the spring of 2008, I spent the entire week running around with a local realtor looking at all the places I thought would work for us. We narrowed our search down to about 35 homes to investigate. But sadly, after looking for five straight days, nothing really caught our eyes, so we were ready to call it quits. But on the day prior to going home, the realtor call and said, 'I found your home!' At that point it was not even officially for sale yet, but he heard that the listing was going on the market shortly. So we ran over to the address he gave me. We were excited when we pulled up to the house. I had a good feeling about it and at the point of walking through the entry way, I knew this was it. The realtor was right, it was going to be our home. The only dilemma was that that the house was a short sale, and if you know anything about short sales, nothing was definite about purchasing it.
After making countless phone calls and emails, it took about six months before we could call it ours. By then it was November and now the real challenge began; The remodeling process! Now... six years later, we are proud to call this adventure our home away from home. We took great pride in reconstructing our place only to enjoy it for years to come. We still have some time left before we will be here more often, so we decided to let you enjoy what we've created and hope that you will make some great memories just as we are doing every time we pull into the driveway. So welcome to our home and enjoy yourself!
We had a great vacation stay. The house is just as described and had everything you need to enjoy the area. The house was clean and very well maintained. I especially appreciated the detailed instructions and follow up from Mark to ensure the stay was perfect. We will definitely book again next time we are in the Tampa / New Port Richey area!
Right from the start the homeowner was very easy to communicate with. The house was extremely clean and organized as advertised. We were able to rent a boat and keep it at the dock space they provided. The pool was great and we really enjoyed the bikes that were included also! We feel the owner goes above and beyond to make your stay a good one and it worked because my family had a fantastic time!
Had a lovely stay at this nice home. Plenty of large rooms. Kitchen had everything you needed. Outside area was wonderful. Kayaks and bicycles were an added plus. Owners were very easy to work with. Would definitely stay again.
Our family of 6 (4 adults and 2 kids) rented this house and were very pleased. The open concept of this house is great for a family vacation. There was plenty of space and the house looks exactly like the way the house does. The guys enjoyed fishing off the pier while the rest of us enjoyed the pool. We also used the kayaks to go thru the canal and out to the Gulf. We also had a dolphin visit the fishing dock one morning. Mark and Deb are very helpful and a pleasure to speak to. They take pride in their home and it definitely shows it. I would definitely rent this house for vacation again.
The house was enjoyable. Good set up! Nice to have a pool when not at the beach. Washer and dryer are always a must when traveling with family.
It all starts with Mark's very helpful manner. Whenever we had a question or concern, Marks answer was immediately. This builds trust and we never had the feeling to be left on our own. Just a little example: When we arrived there was a power outage. Mark immediately picked up his phone and tried to call the neighbor just to check and see what can be done about. The property itself is spacious, very well maintained and in a very quiet neighborhood. The pool with the outdoor kitchen is a perfect spot to spend hours and just enjoy the sun and the view over the canal. Lot of seating space, comfortable deckchairs. Just anything to make our vacations a great experience. Thanks to the floating dock we were able to keep the rented power boat overnight. From Mark’s house it takes only a couple of minutes and you can enjoy the open waters and within a short time you reach the white beaches of Anclote Key. I would just declare this as a must for every guest. The included access to the private beach completes the overall experience right down to the last detail.
Just in short words: Myself and all family members can fully recommend this rental. If we ever return to New Port Richey, we will definitely consider renting Mark and Debbie's property again.
Our home is located in a beautiful waterfront community on a canal five minutes from the Gulf of Mexico. All major attractions are less than two hours from your door step, including Disney World, Universal Studios, Sea World, etc... you get the picture! In addition, Busch Gardens and Weekie Wachie are just over an hour. But if you decide to stay in the area, there are plenty of local events to keep you busy.
If you are the nature type family or individual, the area has a few state parks and reserves you can explore.
For those who enjoy the water, you can jump into a your boat or a boat from a local rental business and and venture out into the Gulf of Mexico. In fact, about twenty years ago, a natural island appeared out of nowhere and people have been enjoying it ever since. The locals call it 'the sand bar'. Don't be surprised if you find yourself spending the whole day on it.
