About the property

Located in the lovely downtown New Port Richey historical district. We have decorated this house to reflect a "beach" lifestyle. We believe that when you take a vacation, our house should make you feel like you are on a vacation!

The house sits on the back of a large lot. We also own the house on the front of the lot, (Key West Style Retreat). Each house has a separate entrance. The "Guest House" has an alley entrance which leads to it's own designated driveway. (The other house has a front entrance and driveway).

This house has 1 master bedroom with a queen bed, a new queen size mattress with a pillow top, and a new padded fabric headboard. Our mattresses and pillows are all covered with mattress and pillow protectors so that they always remain like new and clean!

The kitchen has been remodeled with new cabinets, new stove, new refrigerator, new counter tops, and a new tile floor. We have stocked it with everything that you will need... coffee maker, blender, toaster, pots and pans, dishes, glasses, silverware, etc. There is also an ironing board and iron in the bedroom closet.

The living room is very spacious and has a new L-shaped sectional sofa with new pillows. There is tile throughout the entire house. The living room also leads out into an enclosed sun room that has a wrought iron bench and a table for 2 with sides that fold out so that it will seat 4 people.. The sun room is decorated in an old fashioned flamingo style. It feature flamingo pillows and artwork.

This house also has new ceiling fans and light fixtures on the inside an outside.

The bathroom features a pedestal sink and a stand up shower. The toilet and the fixtures are new. It is decorated in a vintage surf board theme. We have supplied a hair dryer.

Every room has also been freshly painted.

The living room has a 32" flat screen t.v. with cable television, and WiFi 50/50 speed.

There is a large deck outside with patio furniture and adirondack chairs for lounging. We have installed a motion detector light so that you will have light on the deck for when you drive up the driveway or sitting outside at night.

We have supplied all of the amenities that you will need... just bring your clothes!

(We also have two more properties listed on this site at #621936 and #706176...

This home is situated within walking distance of several downtown New Port Richey merchants and restaurants as well as scenic Orange Lake, which is a great place to walk your dog! Also within walking distance, is Sims Park along Main Street and the Pithlachascotee River that includes: a newly renovated, 3 million dollar playground, park, and amphi-theatre! Sims Park is also host to several outdoor festivities throughout the year and outdoor movies!

New Port Richey is 'rich' in history, and in 1926 it seemed possible that New Port Richey would become another Hollywood or at least a winter getaway for Hollywood stars. Famous celebrities from all over the world have purchased property in New Port Richey including Thomas Meighan, Irving Berlin, Gene Sarazan, Charlie Chaplin, Gloria Swanson, Johnny Cash, and Shirley Temple's aunt and uncle, whom she would visit every summer. The Hacienda Hotel, (now closed), was once the scene of many social events attended by some of the most famous celebrities of stage and screen. It is currently under renovation.

The downtown area is host to many events such as The Chasco Street Parade, (March) The Chasco Boat Parade, (March), Bike Week, (October), The Christmas Street Parade and Boat Parade, (December), Night in the Tropics, St. Patrick's Day, (Fitzgerald's- 3 day event), outdoor movies, concerts, outdoor markets, etc.

There is also a public boat ramp located right up the street at Main Street and River Road.

About Heather Schneider

I currently live in the downtown New Port Richey area. I have been renting my homes for over 3 years. One of my main reasons for buying in the downtown area is because I grew up here. I knew many years ago that I wanted to make a difference and I wanted to help revitalize this great historical area where I live. My goal is not to flip my houses... I only rent them. I love to decorate and see what ideas I can come up with next. I went with a little more of a funky Key West style with this particular house... at least on the outside. The inside is very serene with shades of grey, light blue, and tan.

Heather Schneider purchased this house in 2017

Why Heather Schneider chose New Port Richey

This is my 4th rental house. I purposely chose this house for it's location.

What makes this house unique

A huge benefit is that you are centrally located to everything that the downtown area has to offer.

Quaint, Comfortable and Clean

  • 5 of 5

It's exactly as described. We enjoyed our stay very much. All you need to bring are your clothes and toothbrush. Everything was in order and very clean. We especially enjoyed sitting on the porch in the evenings. Thanks Heather for giving us some memorable moments at your cottage.
