Surrounded by the scenic "Pithlachascotee" River, you will be charmed by the beautiful setting and lovely accomodations.

The cottage is tastefully and comfortably decorated and laid out with privacy in mind. The bedrooms are on opposite ends of the house. Each bedroom has it's own access to the outdoors. Your private pool is right outside your door. And if you have any needs or questions, Our home is right next door. We have a Dock that you can use.

The location can not be better

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay at this vacation rental on the river.The cottage has a pool and it is close to every thing. The best part for us was setting out side by the River and the pool. We have already booked the cottage for next year.

Lavish vegetation, place to STAY!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I only stayed a few days and wished we booked for longer. Had family committments and didn't have enough time to embelish the delights this place had in store! We watched fireworks on the 4th right from the back yard. The pool was beautiful and like bath water. Made our breakfasts right there, and stores were close.
Will definitely come back and spend more time at this adorable home. it is a perfect romantic getaway. Jill and Rocky were extremely accommodating and nice. The place was well kept and comfortable. Pictures don't do it justice.

A Wonderful Family Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time at this quaint, quiet, getaway home. My two teenage boys enjoyed the fast Wi Fi in the home, and my husband and I enjoyed the private pool! The location was excellent as we spent a day in nearby Tarpon Springs and was able to enjoy excellent shopping in the mall and Books A Million just a couple of miles from the cottage. The owners were so kind and accommodating and provided excellent information to help us enjoy our stay. It really felt like we were staying in our own "home away from home!"

Hidden Treasure!

  • 5 of 5
This cottage is tucked along the Cotee River in a lush tropical garden that will have plant enthusiasts drooling! The pool area is reminiscent of the days when New Port Richey was a vacation destination for the elite. The cottage itself is decorated with an artist's eye and offers too many thoughtful touches to list. My husband, son and daughter in law were in town for my other son's wedding and were entirely too busy to thoroughly enjoy this lovely place. We absolutely intend to return at a time less hectic when we can take full advantage of this magical getaway that Jill and Rocky have created.

The Perfect Cottage

  • 5 of 5
I was lucky enough to choose the perfect property in New Port Richey for the month of August.Since I was traveling alone I felt safe and secure staying in this comfortable and cozy cottage.The gated property with the river in my back yard was a perfect environment for me to enjoy. Also the pleasure of having the use of my own pool was an amazing attraction.I used it everyday. My son who lives about 40 minutes away came often to enjoy the quiet ambience. The property was extremely maintained by Rocky and Jill.They provided a book of places to go and restaurants to eat at.
I enjoyed sharing stories with them about living in New York. The shopping was easy and nearby. I loved jogging along the riverwalk. There is a beach nearby on the Gulf of Mexico. I have made plans to return again.

Great Place To Stay

  • 4 of 5
This was a fab place for us as a small family. Our Teenage Son even enjoyed the amenities and the local Skate Park and Water Park was great. The pool was huge and kep nice and clean. We saw lots of wildlife and we were so laid back by the end of our stay we gave up smoking and still have - Thank you Jill and Rocky you made us feel most welcome.

Activity and Interests

You are about 45 minutes to Tampa Airport and an hour and 45 minutes to Disney World.

5 minutes away is our local Green Key Beach which has an on-sand playground, gazebo and pavillion. A little drive further south takes you to some other lovely beaches- from Howard park in Tarpon Springs to Clearwater Beach. Starkey Wilderness Park is 10 minutes away. There is convenient shopping all around- less than 5 minutes to the grocery store- drug stores- lots of shopping. The Gulfview Square Mall is 10 minutes up the road.

You can bring your boat and dock it in the backyard. Or you can charter a Boat and have a great time in the Gulf of Mexico , which is just a lovely meandering boatride up the river away from here. You can also rent a canoe or kayak- They will deliver it right to your cottage and you can go on a guided river tour right from your own backyard.
