About the property

3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and sleeps 6 comfortably.

This is one of three homes that we have available for rent. Listings 18828 / 412021 / 1990189. This home has 2200 sq ft. 3 bedroom/3 bathroom Lakeview home is situated on the north bank of Lake Kimberley with a South facing pool area. The property overlooks a Nature Preserve where Deer, Wild Turkey, Possums, Racoons, Turtles, Eagles, Common Birds and of course some small Aligators reside. It has its own privately screened in solar heated pool, and an electric heater for the winter months. The pool is south facing which means sun all day, with plenty of sunlounging area for the 'sun worshippers'. Under the Lanai cool off below the ceiling fan. The home is furnished to a very high standard and beautifully maintained with three large reception areas comprising a lounge, TV family room and dedicated dining area. Both the kitchen and utility rooms are fully equipped with everything you would possibly need. Ceiling fans are a must in Florida but we have that covered also with fans to all rooms. We have thought of everything including beach towels, chairs and a cooler. The master bedroom has an ensuite with Jacuzzi tub and separate shower all remodeled to a very high standard. You will find a huge king size bed with ample pillows and linen. You will also find that a flat screen TV has been fitted. The second bedroom has a queen size bed again very comfortable. Bedroom three has two single beds all with two sets of bed linen. The house will comfortably sleep 6 people and provides ample space for two family occupancy.

2nd stay at this beautiful villa. Its equipped with every thing you need from plates mugs cutlery baking trays to beach chairs towels and bikes. Lovely peaceful position overlooking the lake with its residents of birds etc etc. Lots of local places to eat and would recommend bone fish grill and codys. Stuart and Tracey are always available should you have any questions / problems. Hope to be back again as soon as possible. Would highly recommend.

Beautiful Villa great location

  • 5 of 5

Villa was exactly as described and more, well maintained, every facility you could think of. We had a wonderful 3 weeks it exceed expectations. View of the nature reserve was very relaxing. We saw Alligators, Deer, Turtles, Turkey and Cranes. Good location close to all facilities. The owners provided good customer service very approachable and friendly. We hope to be able to go back next year. I would highly recommend this property. We loved Cody's (as you can throw peanut shells on the floor!) Tarpon Turtle Grill is well worth a visit. Along with Red Lobster, Olive Garden and we had Thanksgiving at Cracker Barrel. Can't wait to go back

WOW This is the second time we have stayed in this beautiful house. Lovely area, beautiful beaches nearby everything you could wish for.

The house has everything in it that you could possibly need when staying here. The outlook is fantastic when sitting by the pool area.

Stuart the owner is just a fantastic man to deal with from start to finish, should you need him.

Definitely will be going back again.

Beautiful Home from Home

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this beautifully maintained and cared for villa. Stuart and Tracy have invested so much time and effort into making this property immaculate and welcoming. They have thought of everything you may need to relax in comfortable surroundings, and so many extras like bikes, cool boxes and beach towels available for guests to use. We have visited several villas in Florida in recent years but this was by far the best. Pool was spotlessly clean. Enjoyed visiting nearby Tarpon Springs and Honeymoon Island. We will be back!

Brilliant family home, highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 10 nights at this house and had a brilliant time. Our 3 kids (aged 9,8 and 4) really loved the pool and spent hours in there. It was kept at a perfect temperate all day long.

The rooms were spotless and spacious and the house well equipped. I found the washer and dryer invaluable as we went from beach to pool back to beach most days.

New Port Richey was a good base for getting out and about to lots of beaches, we'd especially recommend Fred Howard Park and Caladesi island (where we even spotted dolphins from the beach!). The sunsets at any of the local beaches were stunning, do make it out to a few if possible!

One completely brilliant and unexpected thing about this house was the amount of interesting wildlife we spotted right at the house. Cranes walking by, loads of interesting birds and insects and we even spotted a gator a couple of times in the lake behind (very safely behind a fence!).

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this house and hope we can make it back there ourselves soon.

Once Again A Fabulous Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our 4th consecutive year staying at this fantastic vacation home. As always the house is in beautiful shape and extremely well attended to by Stuart and Tracey. They provide a beautiful stress free place for our family to come and relax and it is enjoyed by all ages.

Every year our family looks forward to everything the area has to offer; whether it is shopping, dinners at Captain Jacks on the water, or great BBQ at Ozona Pig. This year we discovered the fantastic walking trails at John Chesnut Park, which has quickly become a favorite spot for us to spend time. Along with Weeki Wachee and Fred Howard Park.

The house is perfectly located for a relaxing vacation, yet close enough to most amenities and major attractions to keep all family members happy. The pool and patio are fabulous and having the owners living just down the street to answer any questions is always a great comfort.

Looking forward to returning next year!
