“One of the best vacation locations we have ever stayed in!!!”

Reviewed 25 May 2017

Loads of room in this beautiful home!!! It was supposed to be my two boys and their wives, my two grandchildren and my husband and I. My youngest couldn't make it. So that left just four adults and my two grandchildren. We had the best time ever. We were close to the beach. Close to Tarpon Springs and shopping. I love Tarpon Springs!!! Before we even got there, Linda told me she had just gotten two baby beds for the babies. Linda also gave me her phone number in case I needed anything. She lives right there and we didn't know she was there!!! If we plan a family get-together again, this is the best place to stay!!! And I hope Linda will welcome us back!!! Thank you again Linda for letting us stay in your beautiful home!!!

Owner's reply: Of course I would welcome you back! LOL It was my pleasure to have you and your lovely family stay. Hope to see you again soon

“Perfect vacation home!”

Reviewed 27 Mar 2017

We had a great time at this vacation rental home. It was our first time to the area. The house had everything we needed. Brochures in the living room on things to do in the area, just like a hotel reception area. Towels, laundry, soaps, toys for kids, games, multiple pack and plays, chairs, kitchen utensils, bedding... you name it. Everything was clean, the neighborhood was safe and friendly (I got many hellos during my run). We had 6 adults, a 4 yr old and a 6 mo old and had plenty of space. Linda was super nice and even printed out boarding passes for us, since our airline charges $10 per pass! We would definitely recommend staying here!!

Owner's reply: It was my pleasure to have you stay.

“Peaceful getaway”

Reviewed 5 Mar 2017

My husband and I just returned from spending a couple of weeks in this quiet, peaceful home. It is close to all major roads, shopping and beaches, but it is very secluded. Linda, the owner is delightful and makes sure you have everything you need. I loved sitting on the lanai watching all of the different birds, and water fowl. This home is just what we were looking for and we would love to go back next year.

Owner's reply: I look forward to seeing you again!

“Best Vacation Home Rental in New Port Richey!”

Reviewed 24 May 2016

This is my fourth time staying at this home and every time has been exceptional. One of my favorite things about this home, besides all of the room, is sitting outside in the lanai, sipping morning coffee and watching the wildlife in the waterway in the back of the house. The house always has everything we need and if anything does go wrong, the owner is very quick to make things right.

Owner's reply: Thank you so much

I love this house. I have stayed here a few times now and have always loved my stay. I start my morning sitting outside looking out on the waterway behind the house watching the wildlife. The amenities are fantastic and it is easy to get anywhere I want to go from the house's location. I've never had an issue while staying here and recommend this house to anyone!!

Owner's reply: Thank you Andrea, it means a lot to me that you come back year after year! It is always lovely to have you stay

“New Port Richie”

Reviewed 3 Apr 2016

My family and I rented this house for a week when we went to Florida to visit our parents who spend the winter in a nearby town. The house is very spacious, we had six in our party and did not even use all of the rooms. There was plenty of room for everyone to spread out. The house is very clean and neat. Many time in a rental, we do not have ample pans and utensils to cook meals but this house is very well equipped. The backyard was outstanding and we did not expect that. We did not use the pool but enjoyed sitting back there in the morning and the evenings and enjoying the wildlife and the view. We would rent again for sure.

Owner's reply: Thank you so much Angela, it was a pleasure to have you and the family stay. Looking forward to next time

“Mariner House”

Reviewed 12 Aug 2015

3rd year in a row we have spent the month of March/April at 4043 Mariner Blvd in New Port Richey, FL. See my review of our first stay at Mariner House in 2013. Everything I wrote them still applies. That is why we have returned each year since. And each year it seems better and even more relaxing.

Owner's reply: Thank you so much John for taking the time to write another review. Please know how much I appreciate it and as always it is a pleasure seeing you each year!

“Mariner House, New Port Richey”

Reviewed 11 Aug 2015

My wife and I have stayed in at Mariner House (so named for its location) for the past three years, twice in March and once in April. Linda is a very gracious landlady, very friendly, very helpful and very considerate. The fact that she lives onsite is a great convenience. The house in very roomy and very comfortable with plenty of closet space. The two upstairs bedrooms face east so you get to wakeup to bright sunshine most mornings, Master Bedroom is quite large as is the Master Bath which has a wonderful jacuzzi tub. The best feature to us is the screened in pool area. Breakfast poolside every morning overlooking a small languid river with a full array of birds, ducks, herons and other waders which forage in the water and along its backs. Turtles come up on the river bank to lie in the sun. Three TVs, a well-equipped kitchen, a gas grill out by the pool and a quiet neighborhood all add to the calm, casual ambience of your vacation. The hustle and bustle of Highway 19 does not intrude on your peacefulness even though it only 1/4 mile away. Highway 19 takes you anywhere you want to go north or south. And you are equally convenient Highway 54 which takes you east. Tampa is 1/2 hour away and Orlando about 1 1/2 hours. Plenty of shopping areas and sight-seeing within 15 minutes from the house including the famous Sponge Docks. Tampa is a fabulous city with a wide variety of cultural, entertainment and sporting events for the entire family. You get a lot for your money staying at Marnier House. We highly recommend it.

Owner's reply: It is nice to know you find me to be a gracious landlady, very friendly, very helpful and very considerate! I'm even happier to hear that you find the house, poolside, lake, birds, turtles and convenience to local attractions so good!

“Great house for families!”

Reviewed 7 Aug 2015

We stayed in this lovely home for 3 weeks. I have 2 young children (aged 3 and 9 months) and we also took grandparents with us. The house itself was perfect for large families and Linda (the owner) couldn't have been more helpful. There were 4 bedrooms and all the beds were very comfortable. The house was clean, had everything we needed and more! The pool was great, very peaceful considering how close the house is to the US 19 highway. If we return to New Port Richey we would definitely rent this house again! It was great value for money and Linda really went out of her way to make us feel at home.

Owner's reply: So glad you enjoyed your stay :)

Owner Supplied Testimonials

February 2013 Rental Review from Marie from Canada - We spent one full month in Linda's home and thoroughly enjoyed our holiday. The home has everything that you would need for a comfortable stay and is very "homey" and spacious. The neighbourhood is very quiet and shopping is just a short distance away. Linda was extremely helpful and available for any assistance we required. We visited the sponge docks many times and enjoyed cycling in the area, such as the Pinellas Trail, J.B. Starkey Park, Sunshine Coast Trail

Linda, we both enjoyed your home on Mariner Street for the month of March 2013. While there was more than enough room for two people, it was very comfortable. The view of the pond overlooking the pool was exceptional (especially at night with a bright moon). It is centrally located and afforded us easy access to many interesting places( Bush Gardens, Tampa Art show, Tiger baseball, Tarpon Springs antique village, Sponge Dock, Clearwater Beach etc etc). It was also near some great dining (Catches, Nikos, Lucky Dill, Plakas Greek, Bahama Breeze etc etc). When we were not running around Florida, we were able to relax next to the pool in the Lanai and catch up on some reading. Thank you for a great vacation! Wayne & Bev, Clarkston, MI

Hi Linda R (owner). and Linda F (Realtor) - Just a short note to let you both know how happy we were with renting Linda Ramsay-Wood's house at 4043 Mariner Blvd, New Port Richey for the month of April 2013.

The house was wonderful, spacious, clean, with all the modern amenities one could want. Furnishings were comfortable and homey, beds were very comfortable. The Jacuzzi tub in the master bath was an unexpected luxury. Kitchen was well-applianced and everything was intuitive and easy to use. Laundry facilities in the garage were convenient and also easy to use. The clothes dryer broke down and within a day a new one was delivered and installed, an indication of how considerate and thoughtful Linda is.

It is very convenient that Linda's apartment is attached to the house. She was a delightful hostess, quickly becoming more like a friend than a landlady. We thoroughly enjoyed her company, but she was never intrusive. She was nice enough to share her cats - Smokey, Oliver, and Moustache - with us and the cats were nice enough to adopt us and allow us to play with them. They were great company whenever we sat around the pool, especially while drinking our morning coffee. The enclosed pool was always very clean and offered a very comfortable place to enjoy the fresh air without being pestered by bugs. There was also a gas grill that we used several times.

The surroundings were very pleasant. The property backs onto a small lake and stream with lots of wildlife such as birds, geese, and ducks. They all contributed to a very bucolic setting even though we were just off Rte. 19, a very busy thoroughfare. There was never any indication that we were so close to a very busy major highway. There was a traffic light at our entrance that allowed quick and easy access to Rte. 19.

The surrounding area offered just about any retail offerings one could ever want - gas stations, restaurants, health clubs with short term memberships, car dealers, shopping malls. etc. A very convenient location.

There was also considerable parking available in front of the house so it was very easy to have some of our friends and relatives visit without parking being a problem.

In summary, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We would certainly recommend it very highly to anyone interested in such a rental.

In addition, Linda Forgues, of Linda's Vacation Homes is an excellent Realtor and was very helpful in finding us this rental and very helpful in processing the rental agreement. Thank you Linda.

Our stay at Linda's New Port Richey home was most enjoyable.
The rooms were large and airy.
The kitchen windows overlooked at lovely enclosed in ground pool which overlooked a lagoon.
The egrets, gulls, and other birds swimming and diving for food entertained and educated us at the same time.
The home is fully equipped with all that you would need for your stay.
