About The Owner

We are a Canadian family of 4 from Ontario that has been enjoying going to Florida every year since our 2 boys were toddlers. We are very proud of this beautiful home and hope that you will enjoy it as much as we do! We love the water and therefore fell in love with this home as soon as we set our eyes on it. My wife also speaks French.

The Owner purchased this house in 2012

Why The Owner chose Gulf Harbors Woodlands

The warm Gulf-side weather in New Port Richey makes this area very desirable. We loved this area so much that we decided to purchase a home here, that we could enjoy throughout the year on school holidays. This property being on the water made it extremely attractive to us. The area has everything that we wanted, such as being on the water with access to the Gulf, near golfing, great shopping, and close to all the attractions.

What makes this house unique

Newly renovated heated screened-in pool, and a lanai. With a beautiful view of the large canal water. New stationary and floating docks with 2 benches to relax on or fish from. A 22ft.pontoon boat on a canal leading to the Gulf of Mexico. Now with ceramic tiles throughout. Fully equipped kitchen & gas BBQ grill. Beautiful gardens on property.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Had a wonderful time and enjoyed every inch of your beautiful home. We have stayed in several other Gulf Harbors homes but never in the Woodlands.We visited Tarpon twice for lunch and also went o Homassa and Vlearwater to see Winter the dolphin. We had a. Pontoon birthday party for several of our fiends who live in various parts of Florida and the old ladies actually all jumped in the pool. I can think of nothing that we needed and the house was very clean.

Great rental

  • 5 of 5

Renting this home was a great experience it pretty much gives you everything you could want from a vacation home. Having a boat was really great and the pool was perfect for relaxing and floating around in.

Great time!

  • 5 of 5

The house has everything you need to have a great vacation! The weather didn't always cooperate but when the sun came out we enjoyed the pool and the pontoon boat. We were novices but Mickey came and showed us the basics and we took it from there. It was a short ride to the sandbar and the water in the gulf is warm. The neighborhood is really nice and very quiet. There is a Publix and many other stores and restaurants not far away.Tarpon Springs, St. Pete are just a short drive too. So many things around. We had a great time!

Beautiful House in great location!

  • 5 of 5

The house is in a great location in a quiet neighborhood, close to beaches, shopping, restaurants and the Sponge Docks. It has a nice heated, enclosed pool so you don't have to worry about mosquitoes while you sit out and enjoy the sunsets. The kitchen is stocked with everything you could possibly need. And there is a nice grill for barbecuing outside. Its also nice having a 2 car garage to park your car.

The boat is great and you can take a nice ride through the canals and the Gulf waters were calm every day we went out.

The owner and property manager are both quick to respond to any needs and questions.

We really enjoyed our stay at this house!

Nice home, clean and decorated very cute.

  • 4 of 5

Very nice home as expected from pictures. Pool was too small to swim, more like a wading pool, didn't use, but would be nice for kids. Enjoyed motoring around in the pontoon.

Good location, many places to go to within an hour drive. Wish the weather was warmer but overall we had a good time.

Owner's Response: We are very disappointed in the review above. We take great pride in making this a very nice home. The pool is small with more than ample room to swim in. It is three feet deep at the shallow end and about five feet in the deeper end. It is also heated at no extra charge to the renters. If the renters above had used it, they would have realized that there is enough room to swim in it. Every time we are home, we have a great time swimming and lounging in the pool. We have also invested in a pontoon boat and kayaks so that renters can get out and enjoy the beautiful canals and Gulf of Mexico.

The perfect house, superlative hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Not only was this house everything promised, but in my experience (which is pretty extensive!) the best hosts ever! The owner responded in every case within minutes, and had a local manager who was equally accessible and helpful. We had a few minor issues (of our own making) and he came right over to help us. He explained not only the operation of the boat and house, but also where to get ethanol-free gas and live bait. And anything at all we asked. The boat was a blast- we went out to the sandbar twice for picnics and really loved it. We had two little kids (my grandkids) who adored the pool and spent hours improving their swimming skills. In short, if they had 10 stars this would get it!!
