Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Woodlands

3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 6

This luxury, waterfront home is located in New Port Richey in a quiet Gulf Side community. You are sure to relax in this beautiful home with waterfront view while listening to music and enjoying your favorite beverage. The water-view from the screened-in lanai or from the new dock is of a wide canal that leads into the Gulf of Mexico. The 2 benches on the floating dock are great for relaxing or fishing. The 22 ft. pontoon boat is sure to make your vacation a memorable one. Keep an eye out for dolphins, sea turtles, manatees and beautiful fish that sometimes appear in this canal. Take the pontoon boat out to the nearby sandbar for a fun day of swimming in the ocean, picnicking and shelling. Be sure to pack your snorkeling gear to enjoy the beautiful sea life. This home features a newly renovated private heated screened in-ground pool. There have been recent updates inside, such as new ceramic tiles throughout. The Master bedroom has a King size bed with a large closet and en-suite with a walk-in shower. The second bedroom has a Queen Size bed, flat-screen TV and a comfy chair. In the third bedroom/den you will find a new Queen Size pull-out sofa bed also with a flat screen TV. There is a 2nd Queen pull-out in the living room, with another flat-screen TV, some DVD movies, and a game system. This home has a fully equipped kitchen & 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. 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. Be sure to visit the historical Tarpon Springs Sponge Docks which are only minutes away on the Anclote River. There, you can take a sponge diver boat tour or a dolphin tour. Take part in sampling some of the best Greek cuisine and night life. There is lots of great shopping in Tarpon Springs and also nearby in New Port Richey. Some of the favorites that are very close is Bells Outlet, others a bit further are the Burlington Coat Factory, and the Gulf View Mall.

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.

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.

Great home with a boat

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience at this property. We stayed for 9 days in July and went out on the boat nearly every day. The home was in very good shape and very clean. Large TV in the living room which was nice. All of the amenities necessary for a great stay. The pool was nice albeit a bit small, but worked just fine for us. The boat is a huge advantage!! We went out to the sandbar and just lounged in the gulf. There was one problem with the refrigerator having an odor, but the property manager was in the process of replacing it as we were leaving. The owner also credited back some of the cost due to the refrigerator, which was very fair. Overall, a lovely home and if we return to this area we'll definitely stay here again!!

Great Home and Great Owner!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time at this property. The owner was so nice and was very easy to work with. The boat was a huge hit as was the pool. We took day trips to Tampa Bay and Orlando, enjoyed a day at Tarpon Springs and went out to the sandbar every day. I highly recommend this home!

Great Property!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here in October for vacation and it was FABULOUS! The place had everything we needed including dishes, toys/entertainment for my kids, a pool, a boat, a grill, what else could you need?? It's only a short trip by boat to the sand bar and several island beaches. We spent the week at Anclote Keys and Honeymoon Island and had the beach to ourselves throughout the week!! There was an abundance of shells and sand dollars that we collected over the week on the islands, as well as enjoying the beautiful views and the relaxation that only a beach can provide. The heated pool was perfect for October! It was wonderful to relax at night with the kids in it after grilling out fresh seafood from the local markets. Clearwater beach is only a short drive away or you can get there by boat. We also enjoyed being so close to Tampa where we had a wonderful visit to Busch Gardens. The house manager was excellent and answered any questions we had throughout our visit. We had such a memorable vacation! Thank you!

Slice of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Dave and Vivian for the perfect escape! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay; a truly wonderful experience.

Its hard to get the family together for a quick vacation due to work schedules, college schedules, etc.

We contemplated on a quick getaway to the beach to spend quality time with our adult children for the Memorial

weekend/week. The family wanted the beach, swimming, boating, fishing, swimming, etc., but unfortunately, I had much work to do via remote and needed internet access, privacy, quiet, serenity. This property HAD IT ALL!!! We are so greatful that we were able to quickly find this property for quick family getaway. We sent an email inquiry and heard back from Dave immediately. The owners, were exceptionally helpful in making arrangements, assured internet access, and provided extensive information about the area as well as recommendations about sandbar and anclote island for our family boating expeditions.

Upon arrival, it was a pleasure to met with the Property Manager, Mickey, who was kind, personable and so gracious to show us around, offer tips on day trips on the boat, and area dining & attractions, and he made sure I had Wi-Fi connection. He certainly knows the area inside and out, and knows your personal needs according to your vacation timeline.

We had 6 adults in our party and were accommodated very comfortably. The house is attractive, fully furnished, very inviting,comfortable, clean, well equipped with virtually every amenity that we needed - it made us feel right at home. The view of the canal is breathtaking, absolutely a beautiful setting, and the home is situated in a very quiet neighborhood. The owners have made every effort to insure you have what you need to enjoy yourself.

Unfortunately, the grill only had enough propane for us to grill hotdogs one afternoon, but that gave us opportunities to venture out and dine out. We enjoyed the pool everyday, and we are in love with the boat! Thank you so much for the perfect escape!

Unfortunately, we had to cut our trip short due to ... you guessed it "work" - reality stinks :). But nonetheless we highly recommend this home for anyone who wants to relax and have a great time. We look forward to visiting some time in the not so distant future. Thanks again for sharing your slice of paradise with us!

Great Thanksgiving Week!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at your rental home the week of Thanksgiving. The house was just perfect...clean, large, and had a well stocked kitchen. The pool area was nice and overall the boat was great...we had some issues with the motor, but both Mickey (local contact) and Dave (owner) were both spectacular and Mickey tried so very hard to get the motor working for us the last few days we were there...he wasn't able to, but we appreciate his efforts and I believe Dave has since replaced the boat motor with a brand new one. We are looking forward to coming back for spring break 2014 and we are hoping for warmer weather then! I would highly recommend this rental home to anyone wanting a relaxing vacation with a boat and great fishing! Thanks for everything Dave and Mickey! See you here soon!
