About Steve Crowthers

We are originally from the Cincinnati Ohio area moving to Florida in 2009. We currently live in Palm Harbor. Florida has always been our vacation spot, now we are always on vacation!!

Steve Crowthers purchased this house in 2013

Why Steve Crowthers chose Gulf Harbors

We were attracted to Gulf Harbors because of the many waterfront homes giving way to the Gulf Of Mexico. The community is very pleasant and clean with a beautiful private beach. We found everything we love about Florida here.

What makes this house unique

The peaceful back yard on the canal watching the fish and dolphins play.

Fantastic property

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate to find Steve & Mary's property listing on VRBO. We loved the location, the pool and screened enclosure, docks and canal behind the house. The neighborhood is quiet and safe and there is a private beach close by available for residents. The house was very clean, nicely decorated, with new appliances and comfortable furniture. Steve and Mary provided everything we needed, including paper towels, napkins, coffee filters, etc..., so we didn't have to run out to the store the first day we arrived. We had friends from the area over a few times, and they were all impressed with this property, as well. We've rented several properties from VRBO over the past few years, and this one was by far the best maintained and furnished. Steve and Mary are easy to contact if any questions come up. We would definitely stay here again!

New Port Richey, Florida rental

  • 5 of 5

We just returned to New York after spending the month of October at Steve & Mary's wonderful house in New Port Richey. Perfect for us seniors to relax & enjoy the beautiful October weather. We had a family wedding & reunion during our stay. Our kids & grandkids flew down from NY for a long weekend & stayed with the wedding party in Tampa. Our son, Mike from Puerto Rico stayed with us. We even got to celebrate our oldest grandson's 16th birthday with a dinner for 13 at Catches & an ice cream cake at the house. Priceless....

We ate all our meals out by the pool watching the boats go out fishing. So many places to sit, sun & shade. Mary & Steve have furnished the house with all the things needed to make our stay perfect. They are a special couple who take great pride in their New Port Richey rental. We are grateful to them & thankful that we saw their listing on VIRBO

& hope to get a chance to stay there again in the future.. Jill & Anthony Valentino

Canal life at its best!!

What a wonderful time we had Uncle Steve and Aunt Mary! I will be telling the cousins about this awesome home. Home was supplied very well. (I knew you were coming over after we left and were going to the sand bar, so I left some wine in the fridge:). Publix is very close as well as other shopping. Loved the fact that I was not walking up and down steps every day!! Pool was very relaxing, the little one loved it. We took the boat out almost everyday to the sand bar (which if you stay here and do not have a boat, I recommend renting one and taking a ride out). What beautiful views. Crystal clear water all around you. Fishing was awesome too. Caught some trout, sharks, jacks and even stingrays. Steve and Mary were perfect! This is a couple we could spend hours with.

Thank you for the wonderful gifts, we put some of them to good use last Sunday while out on the boat. Hope your trip home was a safe one, thanks again for staying with us. Steve and Mary

Amazing Location - Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

Mary and Steve are a very welcoming couple who have created a very comfortable and warm home here right on the canal. We flew down for work and they made everything so easy and the home was exactly what we were looking for. Will definitely be calling them next time I head back to the area!
