About Heather Dubay

We are so fortunate to have such a beautiful vacation home and enjoy having the opportunity to share it with others.

Heather Dubay purchased this house in 2005

Why Heather Dubay chose New Port Richey

Gulf Harbors is such a beautiful waterfront community with so many amenities and is centrally located to everything. The local beaches and Anclote Island just off the coast are truly paradise. Plus the Innisbrook PGA course is just minutes away.

What makes this house unique

The private beach and clubhouse grounds are well maintained plus having the boat ramps and boat rentals so close to this home makes Gulf access easy. Shopping and restaurants are in walking distance.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Good Afternoon Heather



I spent a week in your beautiful spacious house this summer in Port Richie. I have back problems but did well on this vacation. I was wondering if maybe sleeping on a good mattress helped me out. I slept in the bedroom downstairs that has the big bed. Would you be able to tell me what kind of mattress is on that bed. I would like to purchase one for my home in hopes that it helps my back. Any information would be appreciated.



Thank you,

Chris O.

Best Christmas Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The pictures of this home do not do it justice! Absolutely beautiful and very large. I wish the private beach was closer to the rental but we were able to enjoy the boat dock and swimming pool just as well. Hoping this place will be open for our next vacation! Thank you Heather!
