About John and Bunny Bond you can call or text to this number

Originally from Maryland we have fallen in love with Florida and the incredible weather here all year. We chose this oversized home and have spent the last 15 upgrading the kitchen and all baths to granite, adding plantation shutters, all new cabinetry, new floors, plus numerous other upgrades. We rent 99% to large families. reunions, weddings, friends and family groups. Our other home is next door, so if there is ever an issue 24/7 we are close by to help.

John and Bunny Bond you can call or text to this number purchased this house in 2000

Why John and Bunny Bond you can call or text to this number chose New Port Richey

This home has everything for everyone, all ages. From the heated pool and SPA, the safety of the retractable pool fence, the toys and games, the 6 TVs, so there is never a disagreement over what shows to watch. We are located to many beaches, but everyone loves the enclosed pool cage (no bugs) and it does cut down on the sun burn. Being in a gated Airport community makes this home more than special. Our guests love to take pictures of the plane in our hangar, and others taxiing down the roads.

What makes this house unique

Simply put, you have all the benefits of your own home, your own kitchen, private baths, private pool and spa, no sharing with people you haven't brought along.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Don't look anywhere else. This is it! Something for every age. Party or quiet getaway. Lots of room, very comfortable with a beautiful and well appointed kitchen. Good information notebook and instructions/labeling in the house was thoughtful and helpful.Private pool, luxurious beds,gated quiet neighborhood, garage,great location. Grocery, restaurants, shopping,recreation, attractions,and water nearby. Many conveniences in the house. Very nicely decorated but not fussy. Everything they advertise is true and then some. Its a warm, home atmosphere.I'm pretty sure John and Bunny have thought of everything but are very accessible if needed. We will definitely come back again. Especially fun to see the neighbors go by in their AIRPLANES! Very good value. I'm telling you; GO for it

another great holiday!

  • 5 of 5

This was our sixth year at John & Bunny's home...I'm not sure what else to say except when someone rents a vacation home 6 years in a row (and next year will be # 7) this would indicate what we think of this home. Each year when we travel from Canada to John & Bunny's it's kind of like coming home (to our temporary home:). There isn't a thing that isn't covered and now with grandchildren it's become even more of a holiday! Keep up the good work and I look forward to many more years.

Everything was Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This house is absolutely beautiful. We rented this house completely blind. When we arrived, it was much more than we imagined. So much room, perfect layout, beautifully decorated, and the pool/bar/hot tub area is amazing. Bunny helped us organize our wedding, John performed the ceremony, and they allowed us to have a cookout with friends and family at the house. The weather was perfect, which just added to our perfect wedding week.

My expectations were high for this home based on the reviews I had read. They were all true -- no exaggerations. The location was ideal for us to explore the sights and attractions of this area of Florida. The house had every comfort and convenience we could want. We ended up doing a lot more lounging around the house and pool than we had expected. And it was always a pleasure returning to the house at the end of each day.

Thanks again Bunny and John for being the perfect hosts.

Lovely home and people

  • 5 of 5

Second visit to John & Bunny's vacation home. This was a special visit as our Daughter was getting married. John and Bunny organised the Beach wedding venue, photographer, they reccomended the florists and virtually took all the stress out of the wedding.

John officiated over the happy couple, and what a great job he did, Bunny laid out the flowers, chairs, and the floral archway etc, She did a great job, it all looked so pretty. The two photographers were superb and once again a big thank you to J&B for their help arranging them. Both photographers were first class. Overall besides a beautiful home away from home, with every amenity you could want and more. The home is 5 star. But the people behind it, John and Bunny are the best, nicest and most helpful people you could wish to meet. They truly are two uniquely nice people. If you like us are looking for a chill out holiday with all you could possibly want and more, look no further than here! You will surely be so welcomed by J&B and very happy with the whole package.

We have so many happy memories of this house, and all that was done by John and Bunny to make our Daughters day a special one. We all hope to be back soon. Thanks guys

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This house was so great! For the first time we have found a home that has all the "bell's and whistles". We found everything we needed and then some! The beds are very comfortable and we found everything so clean and inviting! A true home away from home. Thank-you for being so kind and welcoming! We highly recommend this home.

Simply excellent

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful house to spend a family vacation in, especially for families with children. All the information about the house on the Vacation Rentals website is accurate, and there are even a few pleasant surprises.

Unlike other vacation houses we've stayed in, this house has a warm, lived-in, even luxuriously comfortable feel. The furniture is well made and in good condition. The kitchen is stocked well enough to prepare a lavish meal for a large group. The decor has an attractive and whimsical beach theme..

One of our favorite aspects of the house was the fully screened-in patio area and large patio doors, which on warm days erased the distinction between inside and out. The entire patio area is marvelous, and of course there is a wonderful pool and hot tub, lovingly tended daily by owner John.

Inside, the many family photos remind guests that they are staying in someone's home, not a mere investment property. You can feel the warmth and familial happiness, which is all the more evident and striking when you meet Bunny and John.

The master bedroom is large, and the king-size bed it contains is exceptionally comfortable. The spacious master bathroom has all the luxurious features one would need. Other bedrooms and bathrooms are smaller but still comfortable. While indoors, we spent most of our time in the large kitchen or adjoining family room, with its comfy reclining chairs, HDTV, and surround-sound system. The large-capacity washer and dryer let guests spend less time doing laundry and more time enjoying the fabulous

There are plenty of good restaurants in the area. A selection of menus and tourist information is provided in a basket on the kitchen counter. A supermarket and liquor store are just five minutes away.

Owners Bunny and John could write a book on how to manage a vacation rental property. There are so many thoughtful touches -- labels on light switches, a thick binder containing instructions for operating the home's features, and drawers filled with everything you could conceivably need on a vacation. They're easily accessible during your stay if have any questions or can't find something. While we were there, I had trouble getting the barbecue to light. When I mentioned this to John, he had a working replacement brought in before the end of the day. A barbecue, he said, is a key element of the Florida lifestyle, and he wouldn't dream of having us do without one. That kind of concern and service is exemplary.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the wonderful review and thank you also for your great ideas to make the home even better. We will implement the his and her terry robes, and the ideas for the fireplace are already in the works. We are updating the master once again with granite and 2 vessel bowls, coastal style cabinets and decor. We are always updating everything because we have so many return guests who look forward to the updates and additions to enhancements. You were truly wonderful guests.
