About Linda Hodak
My husband and I have 3 grown sons and are looking forward to spending more time in Florida, especially during the winter months! We are self employed and have lived in Pennsylvania and the Florida Keys.
Linda Hodak purchased this House in 2017
Why Linda Hodak chose Flor-a-mar
We love the gulf coast of Florida; the location, the weather and the laid-back vibe. There is so much to do that we feel like we are going someplace new every time we are there. Spending a day in St Pete, Disney or Crystal River are like going to different countries that are only hours apart.
What makes this House unique
We wanted a place that was easy to get to (within 40 minutes of Tampa & PIE airports) but wanted to be far enough away from it all to feel like a vacation. Gulf Harbors was the perfect place for us- with canals and waterfront access in a safe and quiet community that we could enjoy walking or riding bikes- yet were close to great shopping, restaurants & night-life.

We had a great time at this house in New Port Richey. It was very relaxing because every detail was thought of! The house is extremely clean and comfortable. The owners left extras, such as a basket of food and treats, and nice toiletries in the bathrooms. The house is decorated in a lovely Florida theme, with really nice furniture. Even though it was chilly, we had plenty to do; the owners even left board games, dvds and a pool table for guests' enjoyment! We would definitely rent again!
We are so happy you and your family enjoyed your stay Julie. Thank you for being wonderful guests!
Beautiful Stay in NPR
Our family loved the house - beautifully decorated, comfortable and with lots of amenities for travelers. The home was put together from the perspective of the guests. What would they need to have flawless visit. How to get in? Where is the Wifi code? How do you turn on the lights? All of these little touches can make for smooth sailing or a series of frustration. There was even a christmas tree for the holiday. A guest book was put together of all types of activities with necessary details to take advantage of the local highlights. While we were focused on family for the holidays we will be back!
Thank you so much Sharyn- we're glad you were able to spend the holidays together with your family! All the best, Linda
