Its about a 10 minute idle...you can see Anclote Island in the distance due west and this is the start of the barrier islands that go all the way down to the Florida Keys. There are beautiful sugar sand beaches at these islands and sand bars and they all are just a hop skip and a 30 minute boat ride away. See dolphins, sea turtles, tons of fish and bird wildlife. There is great fishing in the bay and inland waters, not to mention the beauties you can fish up from the deep. The sandbar and island are very private with not many people at them during the week and they become the local party spot on the weekend...a virtual boat parking lot.
Enjoy the local private beach right across the street from the house. It is very quiet and only open to residents and guests. There are pavilions, grills, showers and bathroom facilities at the beach. Enjoy beautiful sunsets and relaxing breeze.

Experience our local New Port Richey Festivals and downtown bar/entertainment area. Its all very relaxed and low key (and close) or get dressed up and go hit some local hotspots in Tampa or Clearwater, the choice is yours.

About the owner: We are from New Port Richey and have many homes throughout Florida but we call New Port Richey home. It is quaint and very laid back but close to all the culture of Tampa or St. Pete without all the hustle and bustle. It has some of the best fishing waters in Florida and lots of local hideaway restaurants that you can travel to by boat. it is unique situated between the mouth of two rivers, the Pithalchascootee (Cootee) and Anclote Rivers. See manatee, dolphins, stingrays all in your backyard aquarium.
Why the Owner Chose Schooner Place, FL, USA:
We moved into this house after completely remodeling from the home we own next door. we moved because of the large garage (we collect cars) and because the house is just very nicely designed with tons of architecture. Every room has a view of the water, whether its the gulf or the canal.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This house is uniquely located only minutes form the gulf and has a huge garage which is very unique to have the ability to store 8 cars. Oh and did I mention the Location, location location???
