Why Paul/Shelley chose New Port Richey

We chose this property to offer to you because of the tranquility and Gulf Coast atmosphere in a wonderful neighborhood. Minutes from the bigger city life with the quietness and unlimited experiences the Gulf has to offer. Whether it is swimming,boating, shelling, fishing, golfing or relaxing and taking in the local sites. You won't be disappointed. We decided to share our experience with you. This property had excellent rental satisfaction history 5🌟 rating on a average with prior guests. Unfortunately we are unable to roll those reviews over. 29 positive reviews over the last 5 years. We are using the same rates and same property manager that has been used for years. Everyone loves him that stays. 😊

What makes this house unique

This is one of the few affordable houses you can rent with a free pontoon boat to see the manatees, dolphins, and stingrays the coast has to offer. The beautiful clear water by the island is such an experience. The water is right at your backdoor. Come enjoy.

We will be back.. A wonderful relaxing place!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Show me Paradise. Villa was clean and nicely decorated with a beach theme. The kitchen was well stocked and there were lots of toys in the garage. The villa had everything we needed for a great relaxing trip. The outside is stunning. The pool was beautifully warm, particularly nice given we had some cool days! The boat dock is beautifully done and the night time lights a real treat. We travelled with some recreational fishers who lived fishing right from the dock. The boat was a great extra and we lived cruising round the canals, fishing and we got to the beautiful sand bar on one Warner day. So much fun to have the boat to use! The private beach club is stunning and we watched Dolphins there and from he boat. On cooler days we got our and about. Nice location to visit the springs and we got to a Jays game and Mapke leafs.. Such a great location to get to Tampa. Our dealings with owner and manager, Ricky, and fantastic and would highly recommend this villa (just not the weeks we want to go lol!!)

What a fun week we had boating and swimming. The house is huge and very clean. The temp of the pool and the gulf was just perfect. We went to the sand bar everyday and cruised the canals most days too.

FYI - you can not get to the sandbar and back twice on 1/2 tank of gas! Everyone was very helpful. We have already signed up to rent again in April.

Best week ever!

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week in this gem of a home a few weeks ago. Although I dont get to be a boat person in real life, it sure was fun to be one for a short time. Shared the house with another family and we had THE BEST TIME EVER! Well cared for home with a great location: friendly neighborhood and close to unique waterfront restaurants and sightseeing. Would definitely book/visit again!

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Ok so I spent days reviewing properties before I chose this one. I appreciated the good reviews but I LOVE details so here it goes.

We generally go to the panhandle bc we are from North Alabama so this place was awesome bc it was not "touristy" at all and no TRAFFIC. Location was great and close to any shopping needed. The boat was great! We went to the sandbar and fished. The adults and kids loved it! The pool was awesome! I could see the kids from the main room and I didn't have to pack just to go swim like at most places. The beds were nice and all furniture was comfy. There was plenty of dining seating with 2 tables and 3 bar stools. There was also a 6 seater table outside in the screened in area. No bug bites the whole trip!!! The kitchen was well appointed. The only "issue" was there was only 1 DVD player in the front room so we will just pack one. The bedroom TVs were small but none of this was really an issue bc the kids swam almost around the clock. Full sized washer and dryer in the garage. Special thanks to Mickey for being so great and helpful during our stay. We will be coming back!! I would recommend this to anyone with small children.

Wonderful time away

  • 5 of 5

Thank-you for a wonderful and relaxing week away from the cold and work! House was great, clean, had everything you need for a vacation. Quiet community. Enjoyed the pool, a lot!! Having the pontoon available was a plus...didn't make it to the sand bar due to weather, but will next time😊. The private beach was beautiful. Would definitely recommend this property.
