About the property

2 Bdms, 3 Baths, Deep Channel Waterfront

Welcome to Key West in New Port Richey. A 2015 total remodel with bright beach colors, puts you in a good mood once you walk in! The Shore thing is a Tri-level with the Master bedroom (with Queen sized bed) and full bath on the 3rd floor; large living space, kitchen/bar/dining table and full bath great for entertaining on the 2nd floor; outdoor access to the 2nd bedroom (complete with King bed and King Trundle pull out) and full bath poolside are located on the 1st level. The large covered back porch overlooks the Channel/Pool/Spa and Travertine deck - great for morning coffee/internet surfing. This house begs to entertain - the pull out leather sofa can sleep 2 more guests if needed! All new Kitchen appliances and outdoor grill makes cooking a breeze - but if you don't want to eat at home, there are many great options nearby! Gulf Harbors beach club is a bike ride or car ride away - private access with grills and shelters is a luxury all its own with its beautiful sunsets. Pontoon rentals, kayak rentals, and jet ski rentals are close and fishing in the Canal can surprisingly good - you may even catch a glimpse of a dolphin or sea turtle. Want a Diving/Fishing Charter? Less than 3 miles away, access to Charter Boats and the SunCruz Casino Boat, are sure to entertain locally. The Shore Thing can easily become your home away from home!

A Shore Thing indeed!

  • 5 of 5

What an INCREDIBLE getaway!!!

From the moment we walked in we were transcended to paradise. We have been renting vacation homes for years and by far this was the most well thought out home we have ever been to. Absolutely EVERY detail was taken care of from soap, linens, cleaning and paper products! Did I mention the house is absolutely gorgeous?! It is completely remodeled and updated! The bathrooms are beautiful, the bedrooms are tranquil and the kitchen could not have been more perfect. Every gidget, gadget, appliance, dish pot, pan, glass was available and beautiful! A grill is on property to prepare your fresh catch off the dock or that you purchased from a fresh market nearby. Every bed is dreamy including the pull out couch! Our three children (and we adults) enjoyed the gorgeous pool and hot tub! Bluetooth speakers allowed us to listen to music we preferred all hours of the day!! My most favorite part about this home were stunning and tranquil views! Every sunrise I made a point to sit and enjoy my coffee from the beautiful balcony to enjoy the spectacular view! Sunset was equally as stunning! Shops, gas stations, restaurants, grocery and liquor stores, coffee shops, boat and kayak rentals are within mere minutes. The home is an easy and quick trip from both St. Pete and Tampa airport. The owner of the home is knowledgeable, quick to respond and easy to correspond with. The beach is close by to access via bike, (2 provided) walking/running or a quick car ride. The beach is incredibly quiet and private and provided the most breathtaking sunset. Wifi and 3 Televisions are in the home although I never turned any of them on once!

If you are yearning for a relaxing, easy, gorgeous vacation with minimal planning and maximum pleasure- than "A Shore Thing" is just that, for you!!

45th Wedding anniversary.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed our stay. The house was beautiful and the weather was near perfect. The house had been recently remodeled and every room was very nicely done. We appreciated the fact that EVERYTHING we needed was there. We brought in some food and that was all we needed to enjoy this gorgeous house. There are quite a number of restaurants and shops nearby with easy access to all.My wife loved the pool and spa just outside the back door and the large canal and boat dock. The beach was very nice. Not crowded and well kept. The sunsets were amazing.We would highly recommend this fantastic retreat to anyone who loves to relax and enjoy such a beautiful get-away.

A wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic house. It is beautifuly decorated and from the moment you arrive you feel at home.

The pool and spa are fabulous and we even saw dolphins swim past

Hellas Greek restaurant in Tarpon Springs is worth a visit, especially the pastry shop next door. The Dali museum in St Petersburg is a must visit!

Great, prompt communication from the owner. Would highly recommend this property.

Perfect vacation home in great location

  • 5 of 5

This house was an easy drive from the Tampa Airport and was perfect for our trip away from Snow. Nicely updated and tropically decorated; has everything you need to cook, etc. The main road (19) has every dining and shopping option you need. The owners are very responsive and helpful.

The private beach was uncrowded and had BBQ Grills and covered tables. We were there mid-week and never saw more than 10 people there - seriously private.

One nice feature of the home is the separate Suite down by the pool, the kids stayed there and we were up in the Master. Nice to have all that space.

We enjoyed the evenings by the water and even saw a Dolphin cruise through the canal. The evenings are so quiet we only used the patio speakers once – didn’t want the music to disturb anyone. We did use the Hot Tub almost every night.

The included WiFi worked great and we did turn on the TV once to watch the NFL playoff games in Hi-Def.

As for what to do… We visited a Safari place that was 45 min away and it was the highlight of the trip. http://girafferanch.com/visit. We fed the Lemurs but should’ve paid to feed the Rhino; who knew they had such a personality.

We like to explore nature preserves and there was no shortage of hikes close by (bring cash for $2 fees). Werner-Boyce was a favorite.

Also check out Tarpon Springs for souvenir shopping, eats, and a crazy good pastry shop. The Osprey and Manatee’s were hanging out close by at Craig Park/Spring Bayou.
