Love it more every time!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third time staying here - feels more like home every visit!

The house is roomy and comfortable, the kitchen nicely equipped and the yard beautifully shaded. Best of all is the view of the river, watching the tides and boats go in and out, enjoying dolphin sightings and birdwatching. Having a pontoon available to cruise out in the Gulf is great fun! February this year was warmer than any other time we've visited - wish we could stay longer.

Watching pelicans and dolphins from the kitchen table!

  • 4 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed here - and we are going back next year!! We love this roomy, relaxed bungalow on the river! The large shady yard is lovely for sitting outside and reading a book. Lots of dishes and glasses and pots and pans makes fixing meals easy, and the dining room table is big enough for having guests over for dinner and playing cards afterwards. It is close to restaurants, stores, beaches and golf courses. The host and hostess are close by and very helpful.

I would rate it a 4.8 on the 5 star chart

  • 4 of 5

We were so close to highway 19 and all the goings on, but this place in Port Richey was a little piece of paradise. It was quiet, and the river view from the kitchen was fabulous. We would watch the river come alive every morning with a cup of coffee. The boats, birds and even dolphins could be seen from our window. The owners were pleasant, and always there to help. The only negatives: because we had a handicapped person in our party, a few more channels on the TV would have been nice. Some of the double pane windows were no longer sealed which made it difficult to see out of them.

But I would recommend this place to any of my friends who want to just get away and relax.

A really nice, quaint home in the center of Port

Richey with access to anything you might want to do from theater to

sunbathing to fishing to shopping; great restaurants, a drive away from Disney, Sea World,

Busch Gardens....great tourist things to do too... Loved being here.

Port Richey Bungalow.

  • 5 of 5

Listing and photo's were very accurate. Owners were Extremely helpful and courteous to me and my family. The house was in a perfect setting. Nice yard for kids to play, nice porch for sitting outside. It was so pleasant to have everyone together instead of splitting up in hotel rooms. The kitchen had everything with which to cook - we lacked for nothing during our stay in Port Richey. Nice neighborhood for morning walks or run too.
