Description of the New Port Richey vacation home rental
Enjoy the sunrise AND the sunsets over gorgeous Cedar Lake and your island. Yes, we have an small island directly offshore. Pet friendly. Two bedroom/two bath plus Florida room. The master bedroom has a King, the guest bedroom has a full, and the Florida room has a pull-out couch bed. This is a simple and modest home - but we feel the location is hard to beat. Minutes from the gulf, you are at end of a cul de sac and on the point of Cedar Point Drive. Water views from from the east, south, and west. Prime fishing off of our private dock, or grab a rod and hop in one of our kayaks to explore Cedar Lake's many channels. If you kayak into the gulf, be sure and use the clear-bottomed kayak. In ground kidney-shaped pool (with lanai).

52" and 42" HDTVs w/DVD but c'mon, who wants to watch TV at this sanctuary? Fully appointed kitchen. Linens and towels provided. Secure 1/4 acre fenced in lakefront yard - perfect for your well-bahaved pet, with pet-doors installed to the lanai, Florida room, and garage area. Hop on any of the six included new bicycles and enjoy the Suncoast Trail.

The island off of our waterfront is a protected rookery - teeming with exotic and endangered birds year round. The sounds created are mesmerizing, and deeply therapeutic. You will return year after year for the birds alone. Among the endangered species you will see are Everglade Snail Kite, Audubon's Crested Caracara, Piping Plover, Florida Scrub-jay, Wood Stork, Red-cockaded Woodpecker, and if you get lucky, the occasional otter has been known to visit. Take the kayaks out to the island... but please try not to disturb any of the area's reported 140 species.

Weekly pool and lawn service included. Premium cable/high-speed internet included. Use of the bikes and kayaks are included and encouraged - we only ask that you be safe and use them with great care. Please check us out on satellite maps above or better yet, Googlearth us - the location and setting will speak for itself. Try zooming in on the island to spot the birds. Imagine the sounds...
Area Information
Green Key Beach on the gulf is a bike ride away, whether you're alone or with your honey, this hidden gem offers a multitude of possibilities for relaxation, solitude and fun. The most obvious choice, of course, is soaking up some rays, taking a swim or walking hand-in-hand along the shore. But keep the stroll going and a 650 feet boardwalk that snakes through the mangroves will lead you to a two-story observation deck overlooking the water. This is perhaps the most serene spot of all because it's far enough away to escape what can be a busy beach.

Explore the Jay B. Starkey Wilderness Park on our six (6) included bikes. The park's multi-purpose trail consists of 7.3 miles of paved surface for bike riding, roller blading, jogging or walking and it connects to the Suncoast Trail (42 miles). There is a 10 mile equestrian trail and 13 miles of hiking trails.

Golfer? The Magnolia Valley Golf Club is steps away. Florida golf is recognized around the country as some of the best you can play. Magnolia Valley Golf Club exemplifies this tradition of great golf experiences in the tropical climate of Florida. Whether you are looking for a new home golf course or a winter haven for golf, the Magnolia Valley Golf Club is your best bet.

Right down the road is New Port Richey's best kept secret: the James E. Grey Preserve. These 80 acres boast over 140 species of birds, and some of the best kayaking in Florida. The park is the end of a Florida Canoe Trail that runs from Frances Park 4.5 mile down the river. The river runs slow but has many hairpin turns that will be challenging for the beginner but navigable. This section is very scenic with practically no development along the shores of the river. Visitors can also kayak through the canals of the preserve, which has natural Florida ecosystems, hardwood hammock uplands and swamps.

Oh, and did we mention the birds?

Should have stayed longer.

Love the house. Location close to every where we wanted to go. Nice pool area. Would rent again. Good communication with the owner.

Raynard Packard

Owner's reply:

We'd love to have you back. Each season offers different birds.

Michelle Gonsalves

Relaxing

Very relaxing and quiet neighborhood. Neighbors are all quite nice, as is the property owner and the property manager. All a delight with which to work. House is a VERY spacious 2/2 with a completely fenced yard. The house is older and likely needs bathroom updating, but it was sufficient for my needs. I had a lovely time relaxing in the pool, while listening to the birds. Also there were baby ducklings. Very cute!

Raynard Packard

Owner's reply:

We're so pleased Ms. Gonsalves experienced the therapeutic atmosphere. The location truly offers some of the best of Florida.

Relaxing setting

Home was adequate but not fancy. Owner was very responsive to a couple of issues that came up during the stay. The only disapointment was that the pool was not usable because it wasn't heated and the weather was a bit cool, so the water temp was too cold to enjoy. The pool area was very spacious, but it could use some more furniture, such as a chase lounge or two to relax around the pool. Was accomodating for our pets, which was great. Overall, a good experience.

Raynard Packard

Owner's reply:

The Iowa Duffords were conscientious guests and are welcome back anytime. While pool heat is a future option, cooler temps may require a hardier soul than I as well.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What are the most fun things to do in the area?
A: We have to recommend kayaking or boating the Anklote Keys. A taste of wild Florida. We go with Windsong Charters in Gulf Harbors. Tell Wendy we sent you.
Q: What makes your vacation rental special?
A: Without a doubt the birds and wildlife of Cedar Lake, viewed from three sides... and including an island about 30 meters offshore that is a federally protected rookery. The sounds alone can be hypnotic, and deeply therapeutic. If you're lucky, the local otters have even been spotted on our private dock.
Q: What's the coolest nearby activity?
A: Again, we'd have to go with kayaking the Cotee out to Green Key, but feel free to hop on our included bikes (5), and pedal through the Jay B. Starkey Wilderness Park. You're bound to see amazing things there. Golfer? You're only a two block walk from the Magnolia Valley Golf Club. Oh, and did we mention the birds?
