About Heather Schneider

I've lived in New Port Richey for 39 years. I also live in the same area as this rental house. I am close by in case you have any questions or need anything!

Heather Schneider purchased this bungalow in 2015

Why Heather Schneider chose Florida Central West

We specifically chose this property to buy and renovate due to it's location. It is within walking distance to Sims Park, the library, the recreation center, the river, the public boat ramp, a large children's playground, and many local shops and restaurants right in the historical downtown area. We tell all of our friends that we live in a vacationer's paradise. So, we figured...why not share it? We have put a lot of time and careful planning into renovating this home. I would say that 90% of what you see is brand new right down to the furnishings. All of the appliances and floors in the kitchen are new. The hardwood floors have all been refinished. We saved the original bathtub and everything else in the bath room is brand new including the tile floor. This property has two new sofas. One sofa slides down into a double bed. Six people can sleep comfortably in this home, but you can fit 7 if needed. We have current issues of popular magazines for you to read and a book and dvd collection. This house comes with either Showtime and a DVR that can be watched in the living room, master or guest bedrooms. This rental is 1 block from the local library and 1 block from the hospital.

What makes this bungalow unique

There is always something to do in this area! There are several outdoor festivals that are held in Sims Park throughout the year. Check the City of New Port Richey web page for event dates, (www.cityofnewportrichey.org).

Wonderful location!

  • 4 of 5

My partner and I spent the month of March in this little house and enjoyed it very much. It is perfectly located near Sims Park and has a direct view of the fountain in the lake. Walking the dogs was great - we met many friendly dog walkers. NPR has an active rock painting group and we were always on the lookout for "NPR Rocks" rocks on our walks. We biked almost daily at Starkey Park which has a beautiful, paved 6+ mile trail. It was great! The cottage itself is cute and is furnished with the basics - nothing fancy at all, but that is understandable since it is pet friendly. The main attraction for us was its location. Shops and restaurants are a short walk away. Heather was a great host and was very responsive.

Relaxing and perfect place for escaping the cold weather.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and our 2 dogs were able to enjoy Heather's place and hospitality this past February, 2017. This place had everything that we could have wanted. A nice fenced in yard with a grill that I used quite often. A great summer room that we used a lot, besides the large living room and separate dining room. The area was nice with a short walk to the park and the riverfront. This is a great area for walking the dogs and viewing many different types of birds. There were many places that we walked to for dinner and a short ride away to many places along the river to enjoy some really good food, drink, and entertainment. It is also close enough to get into Tampa or the St Pete/Clearwater areas for many other options of things to do.

Heather answered all of our questions and concerns almost immediately. She even offered to check up on our dogs when we went out to make sure that they were behaving because we weren't sure how they would react in a strange environment. We will definitely be coming back.

Very comfortable home away from home

  • 5 of 5

It's the perfect house when my family comes to visit. We rented it for a second time over Christmas. My house if to small, so it is nice to know this house is an option. Heather provides all the comforts of home. It is very clean and well stocked. I love the way she has decorated!

Clean, comfortable, and centrally located!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, two young daughters, two dogs, and I enjoyed our stay at Heather's Bungalow! The house is extremely clean and brimming with all things comfortable. We loved the comfy beds, plush linens, throws, and pillows. The towels are nice and thick, and Heather even supplied big, colorful, beach towels! The decor is so pretty and inviting. My girls especially enjoyed all the books in the smaller bed room. Prince Caspian is Cecelia's FAVORITE book, so she made sure to read it again the week we were there. We visited 4 different beaches, toured Clearwater Marine Aquarium, canoed with manatee at Weeki-Wachee Springs, and ate more ice cream than we should have at the little ice cream shop on the corner :)

Heather's customer service is fantastic. She goes above and beyond for her guests. This lovely house in NPR is clean, comfortable, and centrally located. We will stay there again... and again!

Perfect for us!!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was comfortable, perfect for what we were looking for. It was close to anything we needed or wanted to do. The owner did everything and more, she was very friendly, helpful, and informative. We plan to visit/rent from her again. We really enjoyed Christina's restaurant (about 150 yards away), Johnny Grits & Cornerstone pizza were also great. Another favorite was Rossi's Italian restaurant. Heather, we enjoyed our stay 100%, you did an awesome job! Until next time....
