About Patrick

Hello, my name is Patrick and I have owned my Anchor's Away home since 2005. I am all about providing an exceptional experience for everyone who stays at my home. I would like my home to help create lifelong memories that are enjoyed and shared for many years to come.

Patrick purchased this house in 2005

Why Patrick chose New Port Richey

I was visiting a friend and just fell in love with the area. It's one of the most peaceful places to visit along with great fishing, the sandbar and great neighbors. My family and friends also love the opportunity to vacation at Anchor's Away.

What makes this house unique

Private pool and free use of Pontoon boat. Easy access to the Gulf to spend a day fishing on anchor to the sandbar. You also have access to a private beach about 1 mile from my home. Your only a short drive to Tarpon's Spring and about 30 minutes to Clearwater Beach.


Wonderful! 4.9/5 -

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I loved this place. We do not like commercialized locations and seek something a little different. This property was ideal for us. The inclusion of the pontoon boat was a big plus! The property is exactly as described in a nice little neighborhood that is very low key and quiet. It is not far from the main highway which has a lot of eating choices and a Publix. The house was very clean and had all the things we needed to cook and grill. The house has plenty of towels, blankets and extras linens. It was nice to have the crab traps, bikes and washer/dryer. The property manager is great to work with and very informative. The owner was quick to respond and very nice to work with. The pool and boat were great additions to this property and we thoroughly enjoyed both. The private beach is nice, but not really like being on the "beach" or ocean. It is more like a bay in my opinion. My family largely preferred the sandbar located a few miles out in the Gulf. It was absolutely gorgeous in the middle of the ocean. It is really like your own private island with amazing shells. We saw dolphins most days that we went as well. The water is very clear and calm at the sandbar and only about waist deep for a long ways out.

The Florida Aquarium, Busch Gardens and Clearwater Marine Aquarium (home of Winter from the movie Dolphin Tale) are all close and we enjoyed visiting all of these places.Tarpon Springs is just up the road and is a must see. Very neat Greek atmosphere, lots of little shops and the sponge docks were very interesting. We ate at Rusty Bellies in Tarpon Springs and it was delicious. We would definitely go back to this property and I would recommend this property to any family looking to get off the beaten path.

Very nice with everything needed

  • 5 of 5

Out family of 4 (two teenagers) loved this house. Having a boat to go out to Anclote Key made the vacation extra special...it changed the whole vacation. The house has everything you will need to have a nice vacation and is very clean. The pool is nice and cleaned weekly. The property manager is very helpful. Without his guidance in where to go in the boat, we may have had difficulties in where to go, fish, etc. The home in centrally located. We drove to the FL aquarium, Clearwater Beach, Honeymoon State Park Beach (our fav) and lots of wonderful restaurants.

Anchor's Away Adventure- One spot that had it all!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 (2 kids) had a fabulous time at Anchor's Away in May/June! The owner was WONDERFUL to work with when booking the vacation and very prompt in his responses. The house was very clean and had everything we needed to get started- toilet paper, paper towels, trash bags, cookware, ect. just like the description said. The property manager on sight was prompt when we arrived and full of great information about the community. There are so many benefits to this house! We have younger kids, so going out to eat every night is not convenient, but we did not need to here! The grill is right by the pool, so the kids were occupied the entire time we grilled and we even caught our own dinners!! My husband was so excited to see fresh crab he caught in the morning from the crab traps that are provided by the owner! We had everything we needed to clean and cook the crab as well. Of course our favorite amenities about this house were the kyaks and the pontoon.

Having your own boat is amazing. To rent a boat for a few hours would cost $200, but we had the luxury to go out and come back as often as we wanted! It is easy to navigate from the house to the ocean through the canal- this property is very closely located to the sand bar and Anclote Island. The island and the sand bar were AMAZING! Since it's not as crowded as a regular beach at certain times (weekdays it was almost just us!) my kids found tons of shells and sea life such as star fish and sand dollars. Dolphins swam right beside our boat one evening as we were heading back! Beaches you can get to by boat seem untouched at times and it was great to experience that as opposed to beaches that are commercialized. We took the kyaks out nightly for exercise around the canal. In the evenings, I would run from the house to the private beach that you have access to nightly- it was very close to the property. The neighborhood is beautiful and I felt very safe.

I highly recommend this property for anyone that wants a vacation where you can really stay on the water all week and enjoy the beauty of living the Salt Life!

cant wait to come back

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at anchors away! The house was nice, very comfortable with everything we needed there. Pool was great and the boat was perfect. We went out everyday in the boat and did some fishing. The neighborhood was very friendly and welcoming. We were notified prior to our arrival that the a.c. unit had been messing up and the owner took Care of that issue with no effort or bother to us. Very good overall experience and I would recommend to all that are traveling.

A Little Slice of Paradise!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 2 children, and myself stayed in this beautiful home for a relaxing and fun filled vacation. The home was obviously well taken care of and extremely clean. It also had more than enough room for our family of 4 and more than accommodated everybody needs. The heated pool was a huge hit for our family as well as access to a very spacious pontoon boat which we took several times out to the gulf for fishing and a short cruise over to a sand bar for shelling and swimming. We were able to see dolphins on our cruise out as well as manatees while we were anchored at the bar!! The patio off the back of the house was pleasant as we enjoyed most meals outdoors and many evenings sitting by the pool. The weather was excellent and of course that meant great weather for golfing. There were many golf courses to choose from that were within a few minutes from the house, as well as great local restaurants. A definite must see would be a short 10 minute drive to Tarpon Springs. There we ate at The Rusty Bellies Waterfront Grille and then enjoyed the downtown atmosphere with the local shops. This home had it all and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We look forward to coming back in the future to enjoy everything it has to offer!!

Beating Snowmagedon !!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I skirted winter storm Jonah to experience a wonderful and relaxing week at Anchor Way. The home is well taken care of with what looked to be fresh paint, new shades, awesome art work, and plenty of room to relax in. The clean and heated pool was refreshing to play in when the weather was a little cooler than normal. The boat included in the rental was a great amenity to peruse around the channels and enjoy fishing in the gulf. The kitchen is well stocked with all appliances to prepare great meals or if you'd like to use the patio grill and eat outside while enjoying the sunset. If home cooking isn't your thing, we experienced great restaurants within a 10 minute drive. The owner was great to work with, very accommodating in every aspect. I understand next year he'll have a pontoon boat to fish off. That'll only increase our anticipation for another relaxing visit next year.
