Our home is located in a beautiful waterfront community on a canal five minutes from the Gulf of Mexico. All major attractions are less than two hours from your door step, including Disney World, Universal Studios, Sea World, etc... you get the picture! In addition, Busch Gardens and Weekie Wachie are just over an hour. But if you decide to stay in the area, there are plenty of local events to keep you busy.
If you are the nature type family or individual, the area has a few state parks and reserves you can explore.
For those who enjoy the water, you can jump into a your boat or a boat from a local rental business and and venture out into the Gulf of Mexico. In fact, about twenty years ago, a natural island appeared out of nowhere and people have been enjoying it ever since. The locals call it 'the sand bar'. Don't be surprised if you find yourself spending the whole day on it.
Year Purchased: 2008
About the owner: My wife and I have been married for over twenty eight years. Since the day we made the decision to take the ride into the area, nothing has satisfied us more than spending time in the sunshine state.
Why the Owner Chose Flor-a-mar, New Port Richey, FL, USA:
We have our dream getaway now for seven years. It all started when my wife and I came to this area with our two sons over twenty years. It all started a year after we were married. We decided to see what all the talk was about after listening to many conversations about the sunshine state. We made a decision to take the drive. We were nervous, but excited at the same time. It turned out to be one of our best decisions we made. Great weather and this incredible location made the perfect combination for a fantastic vacation. We were hooked. Since then, we spent every vacation in the Florida sunshine. Each time we came down, we found endless activities to enjoy and create memories from. As we look back at the day we hopped in the car to venture down here, we know that it was one of the best decisions we made, aside from having our two sons of course. We chose our home because of the location, being close to many attractions, being five minutes from the Gulf of Mexico and having great restaurants within a short drive of the house and the incredible beaches within a short drive. All this made the decision easy to settle here. So you will not be disappointed.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
When we decided to start looking for our vacation getaway, I spent endless hours venturing onto different websites looking for that diamond in the rough. In the spring of 2008, I spent the entire week running around with a local realtor looking at all the places I thought would work for us. We narrowed our search down to about 35 homes to investigate. But sadly, after looking for five straight days, nothing really caught our eyes, so we were ready to call it quits. But on the day prior to going home, the realtor call and said, 'I found your home!' At that point it was not even officially for sale yet, but he heard that the listing was going on the market shortly. So we ran over to the address he gave me. We were excited when we pulled up to the house. I had a good feeling about it and at the point of walking through the entry way, I knew this was it. The realtor was right, it was going to be our home. The only dilemma was that that the house was a short sale, and if you know anything about short sales, nothing was definite about purchasing it. After making countless phone calls and emails, it took about six months before we could call it ours. By then it was November and now the real challenge began; The remodeling process! Now... six years later, we are proud to call this adventure our home away from home. We took great pride in reconstructing our place only to enjoy it for years to come. We still have some time left before we will be here more often, so we decided to let you enjoy what we've created and hope that you will make some great memories just as we are doing every time we pull into the driveway. So welcome to our home and enjoy yourself!
