              About the owner: The Sunset Bungalow in Port Richey, Florida is a place for individuals and families to relax. Find peace from within while experiencing a historic home in an old Florida setting. The city's history dates back to the early 1900's. The home was built in 1930. You will instantly feel relaxed in this charming environment.

              Why the Owner Chose Port Richey:
              The Sunset Bungalow is located on the Beautiful Pithlachascotee River in Port Richey, Florida. The home is surrounded by grand oak trees and a variety of tropical foliage. There are many species of birds and marine life to observe. The riverfront home has deep water access, minutes to the Gulf of Mexico. The area is perfect for boating, fishing and getting back to nature.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              While shopping and sightseeing attractions are limitlessly within reach, the Sunset Bungalow is nestled within a boating community. There is a marina, a stone's throw away, where you can store your own boat, rent a boat or buy bait and tackle. The home is furnished with a canoe that may be used on the Cotee River.
