About Howard Del Fava

My wife and I have lived in Central Florida since the 70's. We've raised two wonderful kids here; one who's proudly serving in the U.S. Navy. We've finally been able to buy this wonderful home on the water. When the time is right, we will retire to this beautiful place. Until then, we'd love to share paradise with you.

Howard Del Fava purchased this house in 2013

Why Howard Del Fava chose Gulf Harbors

We fell in love with New Port Richey and especially Gulf Harbors. It's far enough off the main road to be peaceful, yet close to everything... shopping, restaurants and plenty of 'touristy' things to do. The water is beautiful and clear. Offshore, there's an awesome sandbar and Anclote Key for shelling, hiking and fishing.

What makes this house unique

This home is on the North Channel. We love the view, the wide channel and watching the boats go by. The dock is large, secure and beautiful. We love to sit on the dock in the evenings, watch the sun go down, the birds fly by and the fish splash.

If you love the water, this is the place for you. Peaceful, yet close to everything. Close to Tarpon Springs where you can take sponge diving tour boats, shop the Greek stores and eat amazing Greek food. Clearwater beach a bit further south for the days you want to play 'tourist'. Tampa within an hour and Disney within two.

Nearby shopping, restaurants, boat and kayak rentals, party cruise, casino cruise.

Gorgeous sunsets on the neighborhood private beach or on your own dock, clear water, Anclote key offshore. A boaters paradise. Bring yours, or rent kayaks, pontoon boats and sailboats. Count the starfish at your private dock.

Our second visit -

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd visit to Gulf Harbors and this rental property. We find Mr. DelFava to be very easy to deal with, on top of things, and receptive. The home is very clean, spacious, and comfortable. This is our "go-to" place when we come to visit our 90 and 92 year old aunt and uncle who live right around the corner. We will be back!

Property was bright, open, airy, clean, spacious

  • 5 of 5

Prior to our arrival, the owner was in constant contact with me and was very organized and concerned that our stay be flawless. It was a perfect location - a mile walk to my aunt and uncle's and about a three minute drive to a lovely private beach. The house was very comfortable, updated, clean, and had a beautiful private yard with panoramic views of the canal. The four of us were quite comfortable with three bedrooms and two bathrooms. We would definitely rent here again and would recommend this home to anyone wanting to visit Gulf Harbors. An afternoon trip to Tarpon Springs for a Greek meal and shopping was fun - as was the canoe trip to the Weeki Wachee where my husband and son saw Manatees. They also visited the Tampa Aquarium while my brother and I went antiquing. The nearby Publix grocery store had everything we needed in terms of food and drink.
