About Mary Jane

I am a former resident of New York City and relocated to New Port Richey in 1982 and lived in this home with my mother. My family enjoys going to the private beach, cooking out there and watching the sunsets.

Why Mary Jane chose New Port Richey

We chose this area for the simple reason that it was everything you think about when you think of Florida. After my mothers passing, I decided to make this home into a beach retreat so others could enjoy it also.

What makes this house unique

Most convenient is the ease of access to all amenities of shopping, restaurants, movie theatre, miniature golf and renting pontoon boats at the marina.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We just left our wonderful rental. We enjoyed it beyond belief, very relaxing, very pretty and well decorated, very serene. Thank you so much from both of us. We cleaned everything so it is ready for your next guests to enjoy as much as we did.

Again, thank you for having this place and giving us the opportunity to rent it. We loved it. We're glad we got to meet you and Tim. Stay well.

Super Property

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a month in Gulf Harbours and can not say enough positive things about this property, the location and our hosts.

We used the private beach every day. My husband ran daily and I rode one of the bikes provided. Both bikes are in great working order and this area is prefect riding, running or just going for a walk. The house itself is everything promised. The town of New Port Richey is charming and quaint.

I would definitely rent this property when we go back to Florida and I can highly recommend it.

Excellent stay!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for 3 months September through December for a travel assignment. Owners are amazing and helpful! Location is great, house in excellent condition, so many amenities! Private beach access is a nice bonus, area quiet. My favorite spot was sitting on the back porch in the mornings. Plenty to do in the area. I highly recommend and would stay again!

A very special all year round retreat. Highly recommended.

Perfect in every way. Owners MJ & T are exceptional and we consider them to be our friends.

This is our 3rd year and we have booked for next year and I hope many more to come. A very comfortable home from home, with everything provided to make your stay enjoyable. A cool summer room for dining with BBQ in warm weather if required.

A perfect private beach on the Gulf where you can relax in the sunshine and is just minutes from the house, access is included in the rental. Beach loungers, beach towels provided. BBQ facilities and shelters on the beach.

Thank you so much from K & P, your UK friends.

Great find perfect for our needs

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were fortunate to be able to stay here for 3 months while house hunting in New Port Richey. The house is cozy and comfortable, well accommodated and very nicely updated. The kitchen is lovely, functional and equipped with everything needed. It also has the added feature of a garage, which we much appreciated. The owners, Mary Jane and Tim, were accessible and extremely helpful and considerate. We simply could not have asked for a better experience -- especially with the stress involved in searching for and closing on a new home.

Thanks for everything Mary Jane and Tim.

Charming house/Attentive Owners!

  • 5 of 5

This house is everything and more than promised! My daughters and I had a great stay! The house is immaculate and cozy, perfect for us! The location was great too! Our daily excursions- Tarpon Springs, St Petersburg, Anna Maria Island - were in close enough proximity for a nice short drive! Mary Jane and Tim were very prompt at taking care of any issues and answering any questions that we had!

We will definitely be going back! Just wish it was soon!

Thanks Mary Jane and Tim!!! Appreciate everything!

Boating Rental is 2 Minutes Away. Gambling Casino Boat. I am closely located to anything beach related that you could want. There are all the major attractions in as close as Bush Gardens and Adventure Island water park in as little as 40 minutes. If you are interested in just being away from it all and relax my home is for you also my home sits on a conservation lot, so you can sit on the screened porch and enjoy watching all the different types of birds. There is tons of parks within 15 minutes for those nature enthustits. I promise you will love my house along with the location.
