Cottee River Paradise
August 10, 2012
Disappointed for starters We could not get any of the bedroom tv’s to work, The swing set that shows in the picture was not there, we had to clean the pool ourselves it never did clear up yet his pool less than 10 feet from ours was crystal clear The Patio area does not have all the flowers that show in the picture. There are dead plants in broken pots no flowers. The photos on the web site are way over glorifying this place. we also had to repair the patio light ourselves he did come over and looked at it and said he would be back sat morning to fix it he never showed, The clothes dryer did not dry for 3 days then we had to ask him to look at it and he found the vent kinked and plugged. There was quite a few things in the closets such as computer monitors tv’s filing cabinets so we could not really use them for clothes storage. Two of the dining room chairs were broke there were no doors on the closets. There was also some junk sitting around on one side of the house as well as a old water softener with nasty water in attracting mosquitos and an old hot tub just not things for small kids to be around. Mold in outside refrigerator and old nasty rain water in some of the grilling equipment that we had to clean before we used it. There were beds sheets for curtains. Be careful sitting under the tent outside on the patio its really rusted and about to fall down. I have stayed in much much nicer 5 bedroom 5 bath homes with private pool for 800.00 a week where I did not have to lift a finger to clean or do anything which is what our group was looking for and did not get. The Blender did not work they brought there’s from there house for us to use. We had to go and buy our own wash clothes for showering. Had to also buy a set of bed linens for one of the beds what was on there was so stained it was disgusting the cushions on one of the pull out beds was two different colors and stained. It look like they went garage sale shopping for everything in this house. We did not really care to have the owner next door. I now understand why he deals in cash only so the renter has no protection by using a credit card.

We had a blast! we had a family reunion for Christmas and had the best vacation ever. The house had it all. My kids are now pool sharks with the full size pool table. They were so sad coming home i had to buy a pool table. Owner was great, many nights he hung out with us on the patio because he was so fun. super nice. We cant wait to go back. The backyard view was incredible, everything close to the house,shopping,beach. I would love to move there and have Mo as our neighbor. We had 14 people there and there was still room left for 3 of our friends who stayed on New years eve. The price was perfect. I researched many homes and this one came in first for cost. Where can you sleep 14 people for $215 a night. HIGHLY recommended if you cant tell by my review!
Stay was ok

The house was fine, but really needed to be cleaned. Our bed was full of dog hair when we arrived, and we had to wash the sheets, for fear that they hadn't been cleaned. The backyard was nice, with the pool and river access, but there is a vaccum plug in the pool with no vaccum, which was dangerous- I have a big bruise from the hole sucking at my skin. Rented a boat from Sunset Marina, which was great!

The best vacation ever. Pool in back, pool table in front, river and dock in back. Never once heard...mom Im board. Great location. 5 min to gulf by boat. lots of room and great grilling on deck. Teenagers loved it. I will be there next year. Same time next year.

It was nice to rent a place on the water, and fish from the dock. The yard was spacious, and served as a great place to spend the day, but the kids playground in the photo is gone. The pool was not heated, so it stayed in the 60's. As for the house, it is a disappointment. The master bedroom/bath were great. The kitchen and living room were ok. One bathroom is unusable and smells. The other is ok. The bedrooms were a little on the scary side. Our relatives who live locally would not stay the night. The linens are old, and the comforters older. One room is unfinished with a hole into the closet ceiling, and in the other closet is an electrical box, with a missing cover, so all of the wires are exposed-a code violation anywhere. The closet could not be locked, so it poses a hazard to any child. We had to lock off that entire wing of the house. There is no screen door to the patio and pool, and no child safety lock. There is also no child safety fence for the pool. We were a bit on edge with two small children, and had to baracade the door with a fish pole and chairs. Only saw one smoke detector. The owner is next door and very nice, and responsive. Needs to update the linens and bedding, finish renovations and electrical, get a better lock for the patio door, and install a pool fence. Parents of small kids have to be on their toes in this house. The home was clean, and no bugs. We made the best of it, but would not stay there again unless the home is updated.

great vacation home!

We stayed there the last week of July this year, 2010. The house was perfect for the number of people we had and for the relatives in the area to visit. We plan on renting again in 2012 when my son returns from Afghanistan. Mo was really nice and made the stay on to remember.
New Port Richey - Family Vac
April 14, 2010
I truly enjoyed our vacation in New Port Richey. We discovered interesting nearby attractions such as Tarpon Springs (the town and beach), Islands just off shore from Gulf Harbor, local wildlife. We enjoyed the space. It was an excellent home for multi-family vacationing.
unhappy with owner
January 21, 2010
I contacted this owner in Sept 09 and by email rented for last week of Jan 2010. In late Dec tried to contact owner many times with no response. Made decision to change rentals. Owner will now not refund our $250 deposit. No contract was signed and web said fully reefundabe. We cancelled due to unresponsiveness of owner.

This house was wonderful. It was very spacious, clean, and a well cared for home. We had a wonderful time there and have no complaints. It was everything we expected from the description and so much more! The owner is easy to work with and very helpful. We will be going back to this house again in the future.
