The house is very spacious with lots of living room. The pool is right off the back of the house, enclosed, and it is a large pool and we swam several times every day. The pool is kept up and monitored, and the canal that leads to the ocean is just behind the pool. There is one kayak at the house; we would have wished for 2-3 more so that we could go out into the canal and explore. Lacking a boat, you can't do much with the canal or the ocean just beyond it. New Port Richey isn't a tourist area, and there really isn't an adequate beach close to the property. However, we found Honeymoon Beach State Park about 25 minutes away and it was glorious! We went there two days. We went swimming with the Manatees about an hour north of the house and it was fantastic. Tarpon Springs is close and has lots of touristy things. So we had lots of variety -- but you had to have a car to get to nearly everything. We had no maintenance problems at all with the house. The kitchen is well stocked, easy to use, nice eating area, great master bedroom suite. All three bedrooms and baths are quite nice. We had a lovely, relaxing week and I would recommend it to others. The immediate neighborhood is of well-maintained homes and very quiet.
