Scenic cottage next to large and improved Sims park with river views. Beautiful "Old Florida" 2BR/1BA cottage has sun filled Florida room, Dade County pine floors, tropical furnishings and a covered porch with wicker chairs. Short walk along the seawall and across the river into town. Great local restaurants and a modern library are all close by. A short walk to library where every Saturday there is an organic farmers co-op where fresh vegetables can found with just a donation. A health food market is right around the corner as well. Area beaches are approximately 20 minutes away by car.
This lovely home was built in the 1920's when this small Florida town was close to becoming the original "Hollywood". Film stars flocked here to build stately homes along the beautiful Cotee River. Our house was built by a banker and investor named George Sims who used to entertain film stars visiting and re-locating to the area. Ed Wynn, Shirley Temple, George Gershwin, Joseph and Rose Kennedy among others used to arrive in town to fish, socialize, golf and take in some sunshine. Gloria Swanson built a lovely home along the river and her "family crest" still adorns the stucco walls of that house today. Gene Sarazin, the "Tiger Woods" of his day, designed and built a sumptuous Golf Course Country Club that stretched along the river to Babe Ruths' house.
Ed Wynn officially opened the Hacienda Hotel which used to cater to the arriving stars, investors and other notables. The city now owns this historic property and plans on converting it into a high end hotel and shopping is directly across the park from Sims House. Numerous murals located throughout the town celebrate Mr. Sims and those long ago Film Stars who were household names in their day. Sim's House has honey colored, Dade County heart pine wood floors and a covered porch. It has just been re-painted inside and out and refurnished for your pleasure and enjoyment. It is "Old Florida" with AC/Heat and Internet service.
Some restaurants nearby: Johnny Grits, Cornerstone Pizza, Rose's Bistro, Boulevard Beef and Ale, Fitzgeralds, these are all within walking distance.
The Reef offers live music for fun and dancing every weekend. Canoe rentals are available nearby as well. Windsong Charters offers pontoon rentals as well as charters out to the nearby sandbar by boat and island bbq's. They also have fishing charters available too.
We are New Port Richey local people and want to promote the positive potential all that new port richey has to offer.

Thanks for a great vacation!!
Really enjoyed our stay here and would love to return here again in 2018. Nice neighborhood and really enjoyed the sun room and river/park right next door.
Would highly recommend this property as a great alternative to the old standby one room hotel.
My husband and I just came back from almost 3 weeks at Cotee Cottage. It was the ideal accommodation for us as it was right on top of beautiful Simms Park and the Cotee River. We were very relaxed and at home in the spacious and rustic home. It was beautifully appointed with lovely hardwood floors, gorgeous sunroom with 35 windows!!!! Each day we opened 22 blinds and closed them again in the evening. Alex was available to us whenever we needed him. He looked after everything and gave us advice and information on the city and surroundings. We were especially fortunate that the Chasco Festival was going on for the first week we were there - right on our doorstep at the park. Would encourage anyone to spend some sunny relaxing time there. Thank you Alex. Don and Jean
