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 bungalow in 2015

Why Heather Schneider chose Tampa Bay

We specifically chose this property to buy and renovate due to it's location. It is within walking distance to Sims Park, the library, the recreation center, 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 live in a vacationer's paradise. So, we figured...why 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. All of the appliances and floors in the kitchen are new. The hardwood floors have all been refinished. We saved the original bathtub and everything else in the bath room is brand new including the tile floor. This property has two new sofas. One sofa slides down into a double bed. Six people can sleep comfortably in this home, but you can fit 7 if needed. We have current issues of popular magazines for you to read and a book and dvd collection. This house comes with either Showtime and a DVR that can be watched in the living room, master or guest bedrooms. This rental is 1 block from the local library and 1 block from the hospital.

What makes this bungalow unique

There is always something to do in this area! There are several outdoor festivals that are held in Sims Park throughout the year. Check the City of New Port Richey web page for event dates, (www.cityofnewportrichey.org).

Beaches: Green Key, Fred Howard Park, Dunedin Causeway, Hudson Beach, Honeymoon Island, Clearwater Beach, Tampa Causeway.

Clean, comfortable, and centrally located!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, two young daughters, two dogs, and I enjoyed our stay at Heather's Bungalow! The house is extremely clean and brimming with all things comfortable. We loved the comfy beds, plush linens, throws, and pillows. The towels are nice and thick, and Heather even supplied big, colorful, beach towels! The decor is so pretty and inviting. My girls especially enjoyed all the books in the smaller bed room. Prince Caspian is Cecelia's FAVORITE book, so she made sure to read it again the week we were there. We visited 4 different beaches, toured Clearwater Marine Aquarium, canoed with manatee at Weeki-Wachee Springs, and ate more ice cream than we should have at the little ice cream shop on the corner :)

Heather's customer service is fantastic. She goes above and beyond for her guests. This lovely house in NPR is clean, comfortable, and centrally located. We will stay there again... and again!

Perfect for us!!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was comfortable, perfect for what we were looking for. It was close to anything we needed or wanted to do. The owner did everything and more, she was very friendly, helpful, and informative. We plan to visit/rent from her again. We really enjoyed Christina's restaurant (about 150 yards away), Johnny Grits & Cornerstone pizza were also great. Another favorite was Rossi's Italian restaurant. Heather, we enjoyed our stay 100%, you did an awesome job! Until next time....

Absolutely lovely!

  • 5 of 5

What a gem of a place! Very beautifully decorated but not overdone as to be intimidated buy the beauty of it all. Super clean and the bed was very comfortable with very nice sheets! No scrimping on comfort. Very clean and pet friendly. Nice fenced backyard for privacy and letting the dog off leash. I must say that this was the first time we have have traveled and we both forgot our toothbrush and toothpaste but not to worry the owners thought we might and "poof" two toothbrushes and toothpaste appeared before our eyes! The owners left a basket on the table with items that one might forget which was a most welcome sight. I prefer to do the laundry before returning home and the washer and dryer on site were new and detergent supplies were provided. The appliances were full size and the kitchen is very roomy. Check in and check out was a breeze. No pet fee which is seldom seen. Yes, the owners do require a damage deposit but it was returned lickety spilt which to me is preferable to a pet deposit which is not returned. We travel quite a bit and I have to say this place was the best! Close to the lake, which is very dog friendly, close to several beaches and many other attractions. Walking distance to a variety restaurants and two theaters with live performances. We caught one show and it was very good. Definitely will return again!

A comfortable, clean NPR rental

  • 4 of 5

We rented for the month of February 2016. A major renovation to a park beside the property had just been completed. It provided nice walks along a canal and around Orange Lake. We took advantage of the short walks uptown to visit local restaurants. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. A problem with the water heater and a light switch were corrected the same day we reported them to Heather. She was very attentive.

Cafe Bristro, Jimmy's, and Johnny Grits were our favorite restaurants. Each had friendly staff and delicious meals. Argento's provided us two delicious meals as well. Although the food was good at Harold Seltzer's, we felt they have become complacent and the service was poor.

The house was clean, nicely decorated, comfortable, and in a great location. It is next to a lake where I walked the dogs every day, within walking distance of downtown and the river walk, and easy access to major roads. It had everything I needed , and I would definitely stay (and hope to) again!
