New Port Richey House Rental Photos and Description
3BR - 2BA - Waterfront - Sleeps 9 - private heated pool - boat&motor

This beautiful, very quiet and peaceful home in an exclusive residential community is just minutes to the beaches. It is situated on the water and comes with a boat (a motor is available) and bicycles. Watch magnificent sunsets from the private community beach, one mile away. Fishing is excellent.

Florida beaches in the area: The beaches along the Sun Coast of Florida are some of the most beautiful and safest in the world. These include the following: Anclote Key State Park and Game Preserve, Fred Howard Park, Tarpon Springs, Clearwater Beach, Caladesi Island, Honeymoon Island, Treasure Island, St Pete Beach, and Fort De Soto Park.

The string of beaches from Anclote Key in the north to Fort De Soto in the South covers 36 miles and has some of the best beaches in the United States, including Hawaii.

These beaches range from isolated, undeveloped tropical islands accessible only by boat (Anclote Key, Caladesi Island) to packed tourist beaches with all the souvenir shops, grouper sandwich shops, and nightclubs. The people that rank beaches place Caladesi Island State Park, Anclote Key State Park, and Fort De Soto park in the top ten beaches in the United States, with most of the other top ten beaches being in Hawaii.

There are more than 20 'barrier islands' called 'keys', along the Florida west coast. The Gulf waters that lap on the shores of these island are warm and clear. The slope of the beach is very gentle, making the beaches safe for small children to play at the water's edge.

Every possible water sport can be enjoyed along these beaches including fishing in the grass flats, deep-sea fishing, boating, sailing, canoeing, sea kayaking, SCUBA diving, windsurfing, shelling, para-sailing, swimming, and water skiing.

Anclote Key State Park and Game Preserve

More than 1,000 years ago, this island was pushed up from the floor of the Gulf of Mexico to rest on a limestone platform. It is still slowly growing today and its size has increased by more than 25% since 1956. This four mile long island is one of the few truly unspoiled and undeveloped islands left along the Florida coast.

Anclote Lighthouse

The abandoned lighthouse on the southern end of this remote island adds to the islands fragile beauty and character. The lighthouse was built in the 1880's and served almost 100 years to protect the mariners in the Gulf of Mexico. With the advent of more modern navigational tools such as the Long Range Navigation System (LORAN), and later the Global Position System (GPS), the lighthouse became obsolete. It was decommissioned in 1984 and for the last 16 years has been abandoned.

Anclote Wildlife

Rare and endangered birds and turtles inhabit Anclote Key.

Visitors travel to the island by boat every year to enjoy the more than 43 species of birds that live there including the American oystercatcher, bald eagle, and ospreys (sometimes called fish eagles). The ospreys have numerous nesting sites in the tall pine trees that cover the island. Turtles can also be spotted on the island including endangered loggerheads and green turtles.

Anclote Activities

The main activity on the island is swimming in the shallow Gulf waters that are as warm as a bathtub in the summers. The gradual slope of the beaches makes it easy for oldsters as well as youngsters to enjoy the clear warm waters, which are said by some to provide comfort for the soul as well as the body. Shelling is also a favorite activity. Several species of shells can be collected. Sand dollars can also be found by digging your toes into the sand in about two or three feet of water and feeling the sand dollars under the surface of the sand.

"WOW" about sums it up. This was a very comfortable & cozy home with all the amenities you would possibly need. If you love the Florida sunshine, water, & relaxing this is a great place to be. You can take a dip in the pool out back, drive, walk, or bike a short distance to a private beach, or take a boat ride out to Anklote Key. We also enjoyed boating thru the area & looking at all the beautiful homes. While we were there we visited the Clearwater Marine Aquarium which is about 15 miles away. That is the home of "Winter" the famous dolphin that has the prosthetic tail. There were a lot of things going on there since they are getting ready to start filming Dolphin Tale 2. We visited Clearwater Beach & St Petersburg beach which are approximately 15-25 miles from the home. One of the things we really enjoyed was that we were able to take this vacation with only 1 carry on bag each. With the home being furnished with all of your necessities, including a washer & dryer, you can pack light & not worry about waiting for your luggage at the airport! This was our 2nd visit to one & Dan & Suzanne's homes & it definitely won't be our last!

We were very pleased with the house. The kids loved being able to jump right in the pool first thing every morning. The hot tub was awesome to have as was the pool table and bikes and john boat. Must check out the islands!! The house is nicely furnished. Good location.
Owner's Response: We are always happy when guests enjoy our homes AND take the time to give us wonderful reviews. We work hard to make your vacation memorable. We own mutliple homes....4 homes are on the water with swimming pools and boats. Although Chasity originally inquired about this home (swimming pool, hot tub, and boat) she actually reserved of our other homes (VRBO 542). No Pool Table is available at the home on this link. Listing VRBO 542 offers pool table, hot tub, and private swimming pool.

Great Vacation home, in a beautiful area. We’ve rented from Dan for the past 2 years.. When we are at the house our children stay entertained with the pool, catching fish, and riding bikes (they also love the bunk beds). I can relax in the hot tub and watch them-- pull in fish and/or jump in the pool. We all enjoy the private beach. The kids have already voted to go back to one of Dan’s homes next year.

My husband and I just wanted to get away and relax, and this was the perfect place.. I enjoyed laying by the pool it was very refreshing. My husband fished some from the dock.We were close to everything we needed and yet far away
enough that it was quiet and peaceful.Thanks for the great deal, we will consider you again when we are in Florida. Laura
