About Heather Dubay
We are so fortunate to have such a beautiful vacation home and enjoy having the opportunity to share it with others.
Heather Dubay purchased this House in 2005
Why Heather Dubay chose Sea Colony At Gulf Landings
Gulf Harbors is such a beautiful waterfront community with so many amenities and is centrally located to everything. The local beaches and Anclote Island just off the coast are truly paradise. Plus the Innisbrook PGA course is just minutes away.
What makes this House unique
The private beach and clubhouse grounds are well maintained plus having the boat ramps and boat rentals so close to this home makes Gulf access easy. Shopping and restaurants are in walking distance.

Rent this and your desires will be fulfilled!
We came to Florida to enjoy the beaches but loved the house so much that we spent almost the entire week around the pool or fishing off the dock. After a 16 hour drive all of us were extremely exhausted... but, I was relieved to find that when I laid in my bed I literally melted into it. I woke up feeling wonderful and my two youngest had snuck into the bed.
Some things the owner have left out of this listing should be shared: there is a crab trap on the dock (we put some bait in it and caught tons of crabs!), water pressure in the showers is very good, there are lots of board games around the house that kept the 8 kids we had with us busy, also a stash of toys in the garage that made a rainy day go by smooth, there is a blender for mamas special drinks, an intercom that also plays music, the neighbors keep to themselves, tons of inflatables at the pool, TVs in almost every room (although you won’t use them, lol)...they have pretty much thought of everything.
I honestly wish I could stay here forever. The house was so comfortable it felt like home. We feel blessed to have been able to enjoy 7 days here.
Fishing: we caught tons of cat fish, a stingray, some sort of angel fish, and few others I have never seen or heard of!
The private beach: the best part about it it you literally have a private area the picnic tables, a grill, and it’s covered from the sun. For extra privacy there are beautiful painted walls between each family’s beach area.
The clubhouse: the pool is heated and large, the hot tub was so relaxing and clean, the view was amazing!!!
The owner: She met all of our needs with a promptness.
The house: huge, clean, nicely decorated. The dinning room table must have cost a fortune! 12 people comfortably ate almost every meal together around this table.
I really wanted to include everything I wish I would have known before because it would have made my decision to pick this house just that much easier. I hope that knowing all this makes yours simple. Don’t let this one get away.
This was a perfect fit for our group with plenty of room. We really enjoyed the quiet neighborhood and the pool was great for the kids. We even saw a few dolphins swimming up the channel! The location was great for us too, not a long drive to Tarpon Springs (highly recommmed going there) or Clearwater Beach. Great communication from the owner also. Just prior to our arrival we were notified that the washing machine was not working and within a day a new one was delivered. We enjoyed our stay!
Nice place great location but if doing attractions it is a little to far.
The condo was very nice and very spacious. It also was in a great location right on a channel for boating purposes. There a few small issue but they were all handled very fast by the owner. Thank you Heather for allowing us to use this condo. PS the private beach was Great.
Superbowl weekend guys getaway was perfect. The place had more than enpugh room for 8 guys. Thanks for a wonderful place.geniro
Nice House but a disappointment
This house has a great floor plan for a large group. We had 5 couples (siblings and their spouses) and it worked very nicely for us. The house could use some TLC but then again, the price is cheap. The location of the house was convenient for us. The private beach was very nice.
We were disappointed to find out on arrival and not in advance, there is a 9 o'clock curfew. We would have preferred to hang out by the pool to visit each evening instead of going inside....we can do that at home! Had we known in advance, we would have looked elsewhere to rent. We did enjoy the pool area during the day!
The ad says to just bring your beach towel. However, you will also need to supply your own hand soap, dishwasher soap, laundry detergent, toilet paper, paper towels....necessities that you might think would be provided, especially when the rules state you must wash dishes and bath towels before you leave in order to get your deposit returned.
Some of the beds have extremely soft toppers on them, which do not fit well so the bed seems smaller than a queen, and you also may feel you are going to fall off the bed. Some of the outdoor chairs were broken and not usable. One of the sliding glass doors was broken and would not open.
With some adjustments and repairs, this house could be an awesome rental. Also, a more honest description of provisions and rules beforehand would be great.
Thank you for the compliments on the house and beach. It is a nice house for such a disappointing review?
Curfew??? There is no curfew!! Nowhere does it state that you had to come inside instead of enjoying your evening by the pool! so I have no idea why you did that. In the guest book, it asks to keep the noise down after a certain hour as a courtesy to the neighbors. Necessities?? The rental agreement states what is provided in the home at arrival. And we do provide many of the items that you listed especially toilet paper and paper towels upon arrival, but not for the duration of your stay. There is no rule that states your deposit is with held if you don't start a load of laundry or dishes. Here again.... I have no idea where you got that information!! The deposit is for damages, and you received a full refund after your departure.
If something is broken by a renter that just checked out, I replace it or fix it as quickly as I can once I'm informed its broken.
Beds?? Everyone prefers different styles of mattresses. One group loves the soft toppers, the next group likes them without. So I have beds with and without them. The topper can be removed if you didn't prefer it. I would have addressed any of these concerns or issues if you had given me a call to make me aware of them during your stay instead letting me know in your review 2 months later.
Perfect for 6 golfers plenty of room
Heather does a great job communicating and the property had everything we needed
This home is located in the Gulf Harbors Community of Gulf Landings / Sea Colony
