Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Spectacular set up and views with ground level living right on the water! Many homes boast of water with 50 or 70 feet of waterfront, very very few provide nearly 270 degree view of water with 172 feet of waterfront! Topping it off, everything is on one level. Due to specific location, we get a very high number of dolphin's right in front of the house swimming back and forth along the seawall fishing!!

We do everything possible to make you 'at home' in our home. Enjoy the pool located just a couple feet outside any of the 7 sliding glass doors or relax on one of the two docks just beyond the pool. During breakfast, watch for dolphins or manatee right out front. During the day, you could play in the warm gulf water at the private beach (grills and cabana's provided). In the evening, enjoy cooking in this spacious, well equipped kitchen.

OTHER ACTIVITIES:

Rent a pontoon boat, and take it to the Sandbar or Anclote Key for a day of shelling, fishing, snorkeling or Dolphin Watching.

The Master bedroom has fabulous views of the water.

Docks for boating and fishing with direct gulf access and no bridges. Community golf course. FREE BEACH PASSES INCLUDED.

Ninety nine miles to Disney and Orlando attractions and 50 minutes to Busch Gardens and Tampa attractions. Minutes to golf, shopping, beaches and gambling boat casino. Thirty minutes to Tampa and Clearwater/St. Petersburg Airports. Thirty-five minutes to Hard Rock Casino.

VACATION PARADISE!

  • 5 of 5

If you want a true vacation this is the place to go! This home was breathtaking! The views where incredible! My husband and I took our three boys to this beautiful home. We didn't want a theme vacation, we wanted to spend time together as a family. This house had everything! Fishing off the dock was incredible! The kids didn't know what they were going to pull out of the sea. We had a crane come everyday that sat and watched the boys fish. They named him Franklin! Come to find out his name is Bob. We rented a boat not even five minutes from the house. It was perfect because my husband would pull up to the dock so we could load our stuff and off we went to explore the ocean. Brent thank you so much for everything!! We would love rent again next year.

Old Florida with all the modern conveniences!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful 5 days at 3711 Corsair Court in New Port Richey, FL. The property could not have been better. Ample space to get outside and play. Situated at a beautiful intersection where three canals come together. There was a lovely private beach and beach club available in the area (just a few blocks away). Area is great for biking, kayaking, sunbathing, swimming in the ocean or in a great pool (very private).

YOU'LL WANT TO BE SURE ALL CHILDREN ARE GOOD SWIMMERS AS THE POOL HAS A DEEP END AND IS LITERALLY TWO FEET FROM HOUSE WITH EIGHT OR TEN EASY ACCESS SLIDING GLASS DOORS! If one is not a swimmer, one could just relax on the expansive screened in porch or in the spa. The house is very spacious... it was as if it were 5 or 6 thousand feet... very open... great for family time. Great internet connection, tv, every possible amenity! Cannot say enough wonderful things about it. Everything you need is there. No need to pack heavy as there is a washer and a dryer.... just grab your tooth brush and a gym bag with a change of clothing.... you're good to go! It was one of the most relaxing times we've ever had. There is a little climb up nook (playhouse) for young ones.... The kids loved it! It was their secret hide-away.... their own private crow's nest! It was so much nicer than staying in a hotel. It was like home away from home.... owners have done a wonderful job updating the property and tastefully decorating it. It was truly like traveling as someone's guest rather than being in a rental! Definitely the way to go... We will definitely be going back!

A short drive to Weeki Wachee and Homosassa Springs to the north. Honey Moon Island is a short drive to the south. Tarpon Springs is a short drive southeast. All great tourist destinations!

May want to add Joey's Italian to the list of restaurants. It is a must.... Careful- one entree will feed three people easy!!!

Owners were awesome to work with providing a lot of additional information about the area and amenities. They were very prompt in responding to all inquiries and requests. They were very friendly as well as professional.

Incredible Home!

  • 5 of 5

We just completed our vacation at this beautiful home and I could not have been happier with the experience!!

I was first drawn in by the photos of the open floor plan and expansive screened in lanai; the pictures did not do this house justice. Huge kitchen-open floor plan-large comfy bedrooms. Our 8 year old twins especially loved the loft in their bedroom. We brought our 23' boat and were quickly fishing in the Gulf of Mexico daily. The pool and outside TV kept the kids entertained and we all enjoyed the hot tub at the end of the day. Added bonus-bathroom access from the pool/spa area. We went to the private beach at the end of the neighborhood for swimming and were greeted by a baby manatee sighting! We saw dolphins daily and even a sea turtle! I had questions about boat launches and the area in general and Brent was very quick to respond. Thank you to Brent and his family for sharing this wonderful home with us. We can't wait to come back again!

The Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

An absolutely beautiful home. The attention to detail really makes this house feel like a home. We enjoyed the swimming pool, fishing from the dock & playing pool. The outside tv was great too! Plenty of room for a family of four. We all loved it, especially out teenagers! We would highly recommend this property. Can't wait to come back next year!

Thank you Brent for sharing your piece of paradise!

Vantastic, picture perfect place

  • 5 of 5

Loved this place. Pictures are accurate. Large, clean, welcoming. Pool clean and warm. Hot Tub, clean and hot. Huge bedrooms. Pool table came in handy. Saw a dolphin on our last day :(, but we saw one. Would definitely stay here again. Brent was so easy to work with in getting this all set up,. Thanks for a wonderful vacation. Too bad you couldn't manage the weather for us. Groceries, and yes, liquor all very close by.........

Best Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

The owner was wonderful to work with. He was out of the country during our stay, through we were still able to get a hold of him. We wanted to add a service to our stay, and he accommodated our request efficiently. The house is exactly as pictured! When we opened the front door, all 3 kids went, "WOW"! The view is spectacular! The house was very clean and had plenty of fresh towels and bedding. There was plenty of seating inside the house and outside for laying out or sitting by the pool. The pool was so fresh and relaxing and the hot tub was cozy! We had coffee every morning out on the covered, enclosed patio and it was so beautiful and relaxing! We fished everyday from the dock and had quite the show of cranes and birds on the property. We visited 4 different beaches during our stay and all of them had something different to offer! The Gulf Harbors private beach was rarely busy and had plenty of open cabana's for us to choose from. The snorkeling was great there! The owners had a house book that was full of information about lots of different beaches and restaurants in the area! I would go back to this property in a heartbeat! Again, the place was heaven and the owner was awesome to work with.
