We are so very pleased that we found the charming Hemmingway Cottage in New Port Richey. The home was immaculate. Andrea is a super hostess who gave extra time to visit us to make sure we had everything we needed. The home is located on the edge of the spectacular Sims Park on the "Cootee" River. We walked across the street to the park that just experienced an eleven million dollar rebuild. The shade trees are massive, there are numerous shade-covered picnic areas enjoyed by all ages, an area with outdoor exercise equipment, a small lake, walkways that boarder the river and broad sidewalks accessible to all. We loved the Historical Society Museum located in the park as well as the fabulous Seafood and Blues Festival that was a three day celebration with bands, vendors and all ages of people celebrating spring, good music and food in an amiable atmosphere. The childrens' playground is spectacular. Our neighborhood is safe for walkers and dog owners. We enjoyed walking as well as soaking in the architecture of the 1920's neighborhood. You can walk to downtown in just a few minutes where you will find numerous restraunts, each featuring fabulous food. We also enjoyed the friendly bars and outdoor seating for food. The corner ice cream shop is joyous, the library welcoming and everyone friendly and welcoming in this small, revitalized downtown. The community is a delightful oasis from the highways and shopping malls. We will be back and hope Andrea has an opening for us at her memorable property!
