Overview

Property Details

Updated: Jul 24, 2016
House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 4 Sleeps

Surrounded by the scenic "Pithlachascotee" River, you will be charmed by the beautiful setting and lovely accomodations. The cottage is on a private, gated street from which you can take a short walk to so many things- Sim's Park, downtown restaurants, a beautiful footpath that meanders alongside the River are all a stone's throw from the home. 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 feel of home

  • 5 of 5

Cannot say enough about this cozy cottage on the river. Could not ask for cleaner or more comfortable accommodations. Rocky and Jill and chocolate chip cookies were there to greet us on our arrival. Called Jill at the last minute and she couldn't have been easier to work with. Comfortable beds, large coffee mugs and even coffee for our first morning. Thank you so much for making our stay perfect. Even saw manatee swimming in the river Do not hesitate to call if you are looking for a special vacation

Just right!

  • 5 of 5

We had a chance to stay at this "Jem" back in April. Reading up on all the awesome reviews (we are kinda picky...lol) we decided from the photos to take the plunge. I called Jill on a midweek day. I had a reply from her within a few hours. Some renters don't realize how important it is when deciding a spring break rental home is to a renter. Jill gets it! Coming down from cold South Bend Indiana we were welcomed by Jill and Rocky right in front of the home on the private Cul de Sac road (too cool). The property was amazing, the pool was warm and clean, the house is much bigger than the pics will lead you to believe! We had some friends that stayed one night with their kids I think a total of 9 we were cozy but none the less comfortable. PS you can almost jump from the living room right into the Pool! HAHA! Anyway you are walking distance to some good places to eat. 5 mins from the gulf. Wifi is a plus.....fast too. You will feel very good to choose this property, no question in our book! We can't wait to visit in the future. Thanks again Jill and Rocky.

The Kaade family.

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.
