The 22 ft. pontoon boat is sure to make your vacation a memorable one. Two new very stable kayaks are now provided for your enjoyment. All provided to use at your own risk. Flotation devices provided are on the pontoon and should be on the kayaks at all times as this is law.

There is a gas BBQ grill out in the backyard garden. You can pack lightly as there is a laundry room with a new washing machine, dryer and drying racks. Towels, beach towels and linens are all provided. Enjoy the serenity of this home, surrounded by beautiful gardens making you feel like you are in a completely secluded area.

This vacation home is centrally located and situated about 35 minutes from Clearwater Beach, Tampa International Airport & Bush Gardens.

About The Owner

We are a Canadian family of 4 from Ontario that has been enjoying going to Florida every year since our 2 boys were toddlers. We are very proud of this beautiful home and hope that you will enjoy it as much as we do! We love the water and therefore fell in love with this home as soon as we set our eyes on it. My wife also speaks French.

The Owner purchased this house in 2012

Why The Owner chose New Port Richey

The warm Gulf-side weather in New Port Richey makes this area very desirable. We loved this area so much that we decided to purchase a home here, that we could enjoy throughout the year on school holidays. This property being on the water made it extremely attractive to us. The area has everything that we wanted, such as being on the water with access to the Gulf, near golfing, great shopping, and close to all the attractions.

What makes this house unique

Newly renovated heated screened-in pool, and a lanai. With a beautiful view of the large canal water. New stationary and floating docks with 2 benches to relax on or fish from. A 22ft.pontoon boat on a canal leading to the Gulf of Mexico. Now with ceramic tiles throughout. Fully equipped kitchen & gas BBQ grill. Beautiful gardens on property.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Had a wonderful time and enjoyed every inch of your beautiful home. We have stayed in several other Gulf Harbors homes but never in the Woodlands.We visited Tarpon twice for lunch and also went o Homassa and Vlearwater to see Winter the dolphin. We had a. Pontoon birthday party for several of our fiends who live in various parts of Florida and the old ladies actually all jumped in the pool. I can think of nothing that we needed and the house was very clean.

average rating of 4.6875 based on 17 reviews

Had a great stay! Exactly as pictured. Still updating. No complaints, clean, quiet.

  • 4 of 5

I would have given a 4.5 star but there was no option. Had a relaxing vacation with spouse and 2 daughters, 4 and 12. As we already planned not to visit major theme parks again this year, it was a good pick.

With different ages, the pool was a hit! We always go for the pool options though.

Short drive to Tarpon Springs. Visiting the sponge docks is fun.

The boat was also fun. Travelling down the channel was easy to reach the gulf. About 25 mins. Once familiar, it was a breeze. Easy fishing in the gulf. Saw dolphins, picked up shells on the sand bar, had a manatee swim out from under the boat while docked in the channel at the house. Wow! What a great time!

There is a beach within 3-4 miles down the back road to avoid traffic. Pay $2 to park. Or you can drive the boat out to the sand bar!

There are kayaks but we didn't get a chance to use them.

House has everything you need. Private enough, nice quiet neighborhood.

House is still being remodelled or at least the bathrooms and parts of the kitchen are still in progress. It was clean and functional. Everything as pictured. No complaints. Grocery store at the corner about 1 mile. Traffic lights take forever in the area! Ha!

My 12 Yr old is usually the most picky and she only complained of the heat outside! She also gave it a 4.5 star.

Even she would return again and recommend to a friend!

If we plan to travel to the area again we would definitely consider a second stay.

Making memories.........

A Florida House That Has It All

  • 5 of 5

We are new to this area of Florida, and found many great beaches, parks, and places to visit. Plus there are so many great restaurants that we couldn't visit them all in one month! The house is well laid out, and has a lovely heated pool and lanai. The weather was windy almost every day, which limited our use of the pontoon boat, but when we were able to go out it was great for wildlife viewing. There is ample relaxing space both inside and outside on this property. A terrific place for a vacation!

Relaxing & Fun

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this home for the month of Feb. 2017. The house will have everything you need to enjoy your vacation. The location is in a very up scale neighborhood a short distance from all the local stores you have back home. We took out the boat on several days and almost always saw daulphins swimming in the canals. The home is even nicer & larger then the photos show. There are plenty of great nearby restaurants and small towns to explore. Steve & Maddy , Ma.

Great vacation stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay at this property. The property was very clean and well maintained and there were many improvements made since last year. We especially enjoyed the new double rocker/recliners in the living room and as always, we spent lots of time in the boat. The heated clear water pool was great!

Great vacation home!

  • 4 of 5

We vacationed from October 1 through the 15th. The house is very nice and we love this location. We found everything that we needed and more to be at our fingertips. We enjoyed fishing off the pontoon boat. Caught a couple of sharks, many mackerels, sea trout, sea bass, remoras, and various other fish. Hooked a sting ray and a turtle. We returned the fish to the waters, as I do not like to cook while on vacation.

The weather was amazing and the service we received from Mickey, the grounds keeper on call, could not have been better.

Thank you for a wonderful time and a great vacation!

The whole family loved this place.

  • 4 of 5

There were two families staying in the house and it was great! We had 4 adults and 4 kids (13, 9, 7, and 2 yrs). The house was big enough for all of us and space was not an issue. The house was clean and it's clear the owners are making (or have made) a lot of updates to the house. All of the kitchen appliances were brand new, the master bed and bath had recently been remodeled, and the dock was newer. The house was also well stocked with everything we needed (dishes, cookware, bath towels, etc). There were even games and movies we enjoyed on rainy days.

The kids loved having the pool right there. As soon as they got up each morning and every evening they went swimming (no matter what we did that day). The adults loved the pool because we didn't have to lug floats, goggles, and noodles to a shared pool everyday, twice a day.

The boat was also really fun. We took it out to the sandbar twice and it was like having your own private island. Each time there were only a few other families out on the sandbar. The water was absolutely beautiful. It was so clear and calm which was great for the little ones. We found 100s of seashells.

The area is very residential and not much to do in the way of the standard tourist attractions. It took about an hour to get to the Clearwater area for those types of activities. This is the only drawback to the house if you are looking to do those types of things daily.
