3 bedroom, 2 bath updated Florida home 500 feet from the Gulf
About Linda Hodak
My husband and I have 3 grown sons and are looking forward to spending more time in Florida, especially during the winter months! We are self employed and have lived in Pennsylvania and the Florida Keys.
Linda Hodak purchased this House in 2017
Why Linda Hodak chose Gulf Harbors
We love the gulf coast of Florida; the location, the weather and the laid-back vibe. There is so much to do that we feel like we are going someplace new every time we are there. Spending a day in St Pete, Disney or Crystal River are like going to different countries that are only hours apart.
What makes this House unique
We wanted a place that was easy to get to (within 40 minutes of Tampa & PIE airports) but wanted to be far enough away from it all to feel like a vacation. New Port Richey was the perfect place for us- with canals and waterfront access in a safe and quiet community that we could enjoy walking or riding bikes- yet were close to great shopping, restaurants & night-life.

Beautiful Home - Great Location
The house has everything you would need on vacation. The location is close to everything. The owner (Linda) was awesome answering questions. This is a little gem that we will use again .
Beautiful Beach house & excelente service!!!
This lovely beach house exceeded our expectations!!! Linda is a fabulous host who is always on top of her emails to address any question you may have in a prompt manner.
During our stay we felt like we were at home. Linda has everything you need to have neatly organized, so you have a perfect vacation time. She has thought about everything, from a guest guidebook with all the important information you must know during your stay, to beach towels, sunblock, bikes, welcoming kit, personal hygiene kit, appliances, etc.
In my case my family enjoys home made food, and the house has everything I needed to prepare almost any meal. The house is fully equipped.
Every area of the house indoors or outdoors makes you feel welcome. I would definitely recommend to stay at this property to anyone who wants to escape from the city and spend a wonderful vacation enjoying the beautiful beaches of Florida.
Linda, I can not thank you enough for your hospitality and all those small details that made our stay the most pleasant experience I have ever had at a vacation home rental.
We hope we can stay again next time we come to Florida!
Thank you so much for taking the time to leave such a descriptive and thoughtful review Dianna. We are so happy that you selected our vacation home to relax and celebrate with your family and are thrilled to hear you enjoyed your stay. It was a pleasure communicating with you and I appreciate you being such wonderful and respectful guests. Would love to have you come back again some day!
Rudder's Way in March
This home is lovely and had everything we needed for our winter getaway. The neighborhood is quiet and close to everything and we were treated to the nice ocean breeze. The beds were comfortable and the home was very neat and clean.
Great Place To Stay
When we enter a house that immediately feels like home, we know it will likely be a pleasant place to spend the next two months away from our own home. Indeed, that was the case here. Our first impression regarding cleanliness was a rating of excellent. As we became more familiar, that never changed.
Linda and Jerry apparently have put much thought in what their guests might need/appreciate. The home is well furnished and aesthetically pleasing. Details such as pictures, lamps, wall hangings etc. enhance the theme of the decor. Cozy and comfortable.
If you enjoy cooking, you will find that many utensils and small appliances are available. Large appliances are well maintained and clean. Oven temperature was accurate.
Washer and dryer are new.
The thermostat/weather indicator/clock is an electronic marvel.
The location of the home is perfect whether you want to go out and about by car or stay home and go for walks or cook out. Sunset viewing on the Gulf is just a short walk from the front door. Grocery stores are very convenient to get to as are restaurants, fast food places and the big box stores or fun little shops.
There is a wonderful selection of reading material including a good books for bedtime reading for children. A binder which is extremely well organized and comprehensive is provided for the guests' convenience.
The bed was most comfortable--a good mattress and comfortable, clean bedding.
We recommend a leisurely walking tour of Main Street, New Port Richey and a picnic in the park along the River.
While there, we felt most comfortable about contacting our hosts had it been necessary.
We are travelers and long term renters in FL. This is probably the best rental for our needs that we have stayed at.
We certainly could not have asked for better guests than you, Jack and Jan and are so very happy you chose our home for your winter retreat. Thank you for taking the time to provide such a detailed and thoughtful review. Being experienced travelers, I'm sure the items you mentioned will be quite helpful to others when selecting a property. Hope you'll return again some day- until then all the best! Linda
The house was beyond our expectations. My family and I were more than happy with our stay. Knowing there was stuff at the house to do we didn’t feel like we had to bring as much stuff with us from Ohio.
Thanks Kodie, we are so glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you and your family have a wonderful New Year!
Wonderful place to stay!
This house is wonderfully taken care of; very clean and well maintained; in a quiet neighborhood. It's not to far from shopping, sightseeing or restaurants. It was well stocked with everything my family needed for us to have a wonderful vacation. Linda was easy to reach and very helpful. I highly recommended staying here...
