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 Gulf Harbors

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.

Location and boat were fantastic

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for 2 months and had a great time. The neighborhood was nice and quiet, relaxing, and safe. It's easy access to the grocery store, gas station, and work out center. The beds are very comfy. Wish we could have brought one home with us. The boat ran perfectly and was very clean. We enjoyed fishing in the Gulf and in the canals. The beach 2 miles out is also a huge plus! The pool was maintained our entire stay. We used it may times. Patrick and Mickey are excellent to work with. We will definitely stay again.

Will stay again

  • 5 of 5

We loved this home, perfect for a family fishing vacation. Rich and Mickey made sure our stay great. Wish we could have stayed longer. The house is clean and well equipped and having the boat available is priceless. Communication was great. Hurricane Irma interrupted our planned stay and Rich was awesome to work with in setting up an alternative for us.

We'll be back. We love Gulf Harbors, going out to the sandbar, and catching Jacks in the canal.

House was clean and ready when we arrived. Had everything we needed to feel right at home.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time, this house came with a lot of little extras that other houses don't normally have. The weather wasn't great for boating everyday but when it was we were out fishing and boating, boat was great. Nice pool, we didn't use it but it was warm enough that we could have if we wanted to. We found everything that we needed at the house and as always Mucky the property manager was very helpful and great to work with. Catches is a good place to eat and a good place to get bait is right on 19 and right at the first stop light, then about a block on the left.

Nice home! close to everything.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at this home. Our 3 boys had so much fun fishing in the cannel, there are lots of catfish. I caught 1 stingray. We love swimming in the pool for hot days. We took the boat out to the gulf and caught lots of sea trouts, grunt, puffer fish and one Sharpnose shark. We saw dolphins in the gulf as well. If you love fishing use live shrimp as a bait you will get lots of fish!! I give 4 stars only because bed sheet in the master was not clean but that was not a big deal we just washed it the next day and let the owner know. Patrick( the owner) very nice answer questions that we have quickly. Mickey(manager) also nice came over to fix the toilet right the way when we had a problem. Overall we like this home. Thank you Patrick.

Owner's Response: Hi Steve and Tao, As per our conversation, this is not acceptable, and I addressed this with the cleaning company. Apparently the bed was made and the cleaning crew thought it was already cleaned. I have to say, this is the first time this has ever happened. I'm really sorry this has happened, and hope you would consider staying at my home in the future. Patrick,

Perfect Family Vacation home

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 (3 kids) thoroughly enjoyed the week we spent at this wonderful home. We had fun fishing and catching crabs in the crab traps the owner provided. The kids loved having a pool right outside their back door. Our favorite thing to do was to take the boat out to the sand bar. The water is so beautiful and clear out there. The kids enjoyed swimming and collecting sea shells. The house was very clean, comfortable and spacious. Plenty of towels, blankets and extras linens were provided. We loved the beautiful view of the water from the family room. The pool table provided great entertainment for us on the days that it rained. Mickey, the property manager, and Pat, the owner, were great to work with. We have stayed at other homes in this community, but this one is by far the best and we are already planning our next visit.
