About Steve and Ada Takacs

Steve and Ada Takacs purchased this bungalow in 2016

Why Steve and Ada Takacs chose New Port Richey

We rented in the New Port Richey area through VRBO in 2016 to be close to friends and family. We enjoy the area and are excited by the infrastructure and park improvements as well as watching the restoration of historical buildings.

The area has so much to offer that we decided to make it our home away from home.

What makes this bungalow unique

Plenty to do in the area and centrally located for awesome day trips filled with adventure.

Clean, Bright, Very dog friendly

  • 5 of 5

Clean, bright, and very dog friendly with large grass back yard. Quiet neighbors and family neighborhood. As other reviewers have stated this mid-century home is as described. We stayed Feb and March and there was NOT one issue that required a telephone call. We would stay again without hesitation.

Dog walked almost everyday enjoying the varied neighborhoods and Florida nature. Quick access to US19 and its miles and miles of needed? shopping and eating establishments.

Thank you to Steve and Ada.

Cute, cozy house

  • 5 of 5

Everything as advertised, and more! Nicely decorated, beach motif. Recently updated with new floors and paint. Clean and comfortable. Well-equipped with everything you need, and then some! Lots of household supplies, items labeled for clarification. Great BBQ grill, bikes, beach supplies. Super communication with owner both before and after rental. Responded immediately when we had a minor problem. Loved the full size washer, dryer, and refrigerator. They even provided couch blankets and a scooper for our pets! Had a great book of instructions and suggestions for restaurants, activities, and more. Nice backyard, completely fenced for our pets. In a quiet, older neighborhood, close to a wide variety of restaurants and stores. Tampa/St. Pete, Weeki Wachee and beaches about an hour drive. Lots of hidden treasures in the vicinity, including nature preserves, Sims Park, botanical gardens, sponge docks, just waiting to be explored! Prime dog parks and beaches. Overall a great experience. Even had an osprey couple making a nest in the pine tree across the street!

Great rental. Clean and bright. Great owners!

  • 5 of 5

We are spending the month of Feb. at this property. It is wonderful. As other reviews indicate, it is well supplied, very clean, neat, bright and comfortable. We are very pleased. It is roomier than the pictures show. We love the backyard and canal with herons flying in and out! The bikes work great, the grill works great. This home has everything! We were glad to find a really nice place that accepts pets. Our little Boston Terrier was comfortable here. We liked the area and felt safe walking around the neighborhood.

We can't say enough nice things about Steve and Ada. They have been wonderful. We added a few new menus, maps and flyers in the house book. There are lots of nice places to eat, drink, watch the sunset, etc nearby. Thank you for helping to make our trip memorable.
