About the property

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!

It's beautifully decorated. We absolutely loved the interior design. Coolest I've ever seen.

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed here for the Christmas holiday. It wasn't easy to find a pet friendly property and when we found this house, we were so excited because it's so nice. We fell in love with house. I'm in homes for work all day every day, and I've never seen such a cool, clean, and fun colorful decore in a house. It was the perfect beach house for our family. It was a special time for our family. We had family in town from all over, including my grandma from Puerto Rico and my father who's been in the military going on 30 years, so we've not been able to spend a holiday together since we were toddlers. Everyone loved the house and how fun and bright the decore was. The bathrooms are beautifully done and the house has the coolest light fixtures. The house is fully stocked with everything we needed, from toiletries to fishing poles. The back yard is really peaceful on the water and we enjoyed fishing off the dock and relaxing in the pool and hot tub. It's just a beautiful house! The owner Terrance has been extremely kind and helpful even after our stay. I've had to bother him twice for leaving my computer charger and other things after we checked out, and he's been extremely nice and helpful to assist me in getting my things back that I left behind. I felt so bad having to bother him over the holiday not once but twice, and he's been so nice and patient about it. Some of our other family members are already wanting to book for a Graduation in town that we'll have to attend. All I can say, is that we loved it and are happy and eager to return. It truly is the coolest house I've ever stayed in. Thanks to Terrance for a lovely and memorable holiday for my family.

Amazing - Perfect - Beautiful- Best vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting properties in the area for years and this was BY FAR the BEST vacation home we have stayed in. EVERYTHING was perfect. The location was terrfic - with beautiful view and easy access to all the great restaurants, festivals, etc. The owner was absolutely wonderful. We took our 20' boat and he provided a secure place to store the trailer. Our boat was docked right at the house for the entire stay. We thoroughly enjoyed being able to come and go by boat without any issues. The pool area and dock are perfect. We made our way out to the gulf waters and enjoyed the islands - which were very close and easy to get to. The home was equipped with every single thing that we needed. The house was clean, furniture was perfect and very comfortable. We cannot wait to reserve this property again for our next Florida vacation. This property exceeded our expectations.

Beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely house, very well done and a great layout. Perfect for us with 2 teenagers, sharing their own space downstairs. Fabulous main bedroom, very 'Key West'. We have stayed all over the West Coast of Florida and it was this House that attracted us up to New Port Richey. The town is very 'non touristy' , but a great base. Met Terrance, the home owner, and he was a great lad. Nothing was too much trouble, and he even shared some of his 'catch' from his spear fishing with us! You look forward to, and anticipate, these breaks so much and this house will not let you down. Very relaxing, and a great base to travel from. Cheers Terrance!

Great getaway for a mom & her boys

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean and cozy. The bed was comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes & such. Tons of restaurants & a Publix super close by.

The boys spent tons of time in the pool. It was the perfect size for them. It was so convenient with it being right there at the back of the house. The view of the canal from the balcony was great--lots of birds to see (herons). It was also fun to see the boats passing by.

Terrance was easy to work with-quick response from him through home away site. He came by when we thought there was an issue with the pool. He also showed my boys some fish he had caught--they loved that.

We spent a day at a Weeki Wachee--the boys & I really enjoyed that. It was only 35 min away.

Fantastic vacation at a beautiful home đź’•?
