About the property

2 bdrm/2 bath, Pool Home on Canal to Gulf of Mexico!

The sunrise warms your face as you walk out the patio door to take your coffee on the patio. A morning swim invigorates you for the day. An afternoon bike ride takes you to the private beach where the waves soothe away your stress and the picnic tables and verandas provide a base to read, write, or just contemplate life, as you are entertained by the wildlife enjoying the Gulf of Mexico.

New (2015) high-end furniture feels special. A master bedroom with double vanity and queen bed create a private sanctuary. The "Crew Room" has a set of twin bunk beds AND a set of double bunk beds so you can accommodate a variety of friends or family. If that's not enough, a double hide-a-bed emerges from a sofa.

Corn holes, hammocks, bicycles, fishing poles, comfortable patio furniture, outside bar, two 1 or 2-person kayaks, a rowing dinghy, snorkel gear, a short stroll to the private beach...we ask ourselves why we aren’t there now!!

About Eric and Christine

Husband and Wife team with intentions of retiring to this home as soon as we can convince the kids to drop out of school (just kidding).

Eric and Christine purchased this house in 2014

Why Eric and Christine chose Gulf Harbors

This is an amazing home in an outrageously beautiful area. From our dock we frequently see dolphin, sea turtles and even manatee.

What makes this house unique

Pool, private beach, coffee under the patio cover. Heavenly! An the neighbors are the kind of people you choose for family.

We stayed in this property for 4 weeks. It had everything we needed and was very clean. There were neighbors on the right and left of the property and they were very friendly, they would wave to you and say hi. We are gym people and there was a great gym a mile away.

The property is close to many option as far as things to do.

New Port Richey has an interesting history and a great park many things to do there. We are pickle Ball players and the Rec center in New Port Richey had daily program. The people at the program have a great social group and we were invited to join.

We hated to head home.

Over all Great place!

The house was appealing to look at inside and out. Very nice pool outside. It has a large kitchen ........ everything worked good except the coffee maker. There is no ceiling fan in the 2nd bedroom which would have been great. Both bathrooms and kitchen could use exhaust fans. There was no ironing board or iron so take your own! The stopper in the bathtub didn't work so no bath. The furniture looked really nice but because we are older was not comfortable for us to use. Our daughter lived near by so we borrowed her recliner! We did, however find a few bugs inside the house which included a lg cockroach, spiders and ants.

It was a great location and near places to eat and the beach was nice. Got to know the neighbors a bit on both sides and they were very nice. The weather was beautiful there in April 2016. The owners were great to work with.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the compliments! We wish you would have notified us about your concerns during your stay; we would have immediately resolved any issues. Since your visit, we added a regular coffee maker for those who prefer it over the Keurig. We also added an iron and board. We checked the tub and were unable to duplicate your problem with it. We remain shocked about your comments related to bugs as every subsequent guest and our own inspections indicate that our cleaning service is terrific. It is, of course, Florida, so we hope your experience was a one-off. Please notify future hosts if you intend to move furniture in and out of their property as dinged walls are unavoidable (we touched up the paint ourselves with, as you know, no fee to you). We love our neighbors and are glad they treated you well. We regret that we had already agreed to host other guests during the time you wished to return for another stay and hope you keep an eye on the calendar for future visits. Thank you again for staying in our home. Eric and Christine
