Yes, enjoy your island
|Per month:||$1,800 - $2,350|
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...
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?

Reviews for this vacation home rental in New Port Richey, Florida
July 23, 2014
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!

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.
