Yes, we have an small island directly offshore. Enjoy the sunrise AND the sunsets over gorgeous Cedar Lake and your island. Friends, this is a simple and modest home - but we feel the location is hard to beat. Pet friendly. Two bedroom/two bath plus Florida room. The master bedroom has a king, the guest bedroom has a full, and the Florida room has a pull-out couch bed. Minutes from the gulf, you are at end of a cul de sac and on the point of Cedar Point Drive. Water views from from the east, south, and west. Prime fishing off of our private dock, or grab a rod and hop in one of kayaks to explore Cedar Lake's many channels. If you head into the gulf, use the CLEAR BOTTOMED KAYAK... a rare treat. In ground kidney-shaped pool (with lanai). 52' and 42' HDTVs w/DVD and 1000s of Roku channels ...Yes, we have an small island directly offshore.

In ground kidney-shaped pool (with lanai). 52' and 42' HDTVs w/DVD and 1000s of Roku channels but c'mon, who wants to watch TV at this sanctuary? Basic kitchen. Linens and towels provided. Secure 1/4 acre fenced in lakefront yard - perfect for your well-behaved pet, with pet-doors installed to the lanai, Florida room, and garage area. Hop on any of the six included new bicycles. We have an electric scooter on site available to lease. No motorcycle endorsement required. Perfect for local exploring, in true Florida style. The island off of our waterfront is a protected rookery - teeming with exotic and endangered birds year round. The sounds created are mesmerizing, and deeply therapeutic. You will return year after year for the birds alone. Among the endangered species you will see are Everglade Snail Kite, Audubon's Crested Caracara, Piping Plover, Florida Scrub-jay, Wood Stork, Red-cockaded Woodpecker, and if you get lucky, the occasional otter has been known to visit. Take the kayaks out to the island... but please try not to disturb any of the area's reported 140 species. Pool and lawn service included. Cable/Roku/high-speed internet included. The bikes and kayaks are included, we only ask that you be safe and use them with great care. Please check us out on a satellite map - the location and setting will speak for itself. Try zooming in on the island to spot the birds. Imagine the sounds… As wellness professionals, we have created this sanctuary as a location of true healing. Reach us at The Packard Institute, Inc. with any questions - or for the latest specials. Oh, and did we mention the birds? Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: 20-8830510More

A great stay. Plenty of room, peaceful surroundings. Used the provided trail bikes and kayaks. Perfect place to escape in a pleasant and roomy home in a beautiful sleepy New Port Richey. Can't wait to return! Highly recommend!

This home in New Port Richey was very clean and has a beautiful view of the lake. Kayaking and seeing dolphins was the highlight of my trip. Will stay again!

About the neighbourhood
Green Key Beach on the gulf is a bike ride away, whether you're alone or with your honey, this hidden gem offers a multitude of possibilities for relaxation, solitude and fun. The most obvious choice, of course, is soaking up some rays, taking a swim or walking hand-in-hand along the shore. But keep the stroll going and a 650 feet boardwalk that snakes through the mangroves will lead you to a two-story observation deck overlooking the water. This is perhaps the most serene spot of all because it's far enough away to escape what can be a busy beach. Explore the Jay B. Starkey Wilderness Park on our five (5) included bikes. The park's multi-purpose trail consists of 7.3 miles of paved surface for bike riding, roller blading, jogging or walking and it connects to the Suncoast Trail (42 mil...
Getting around
There is ample parking. If you live an active lifestyle, most amenities/parks/Green Key Beach are within easy biking distance. Another option is leasing our on-site electric scooter (no motorcycle endorsement required). Inquire at thepackardinstitute.
