Situated in a peaceful road with virtually no passing traffic, the home is furnished to a high standard. It has a private pool (with or without heating as required), screen cage, lanai, patio with furniture and child safety fence. There is nothing but vegetation for 50 yards behind the home so the pool area is pleasantly secluded. The home has HD Digital TV in main room and smaller TVs in all bedrooms (King, Queen, Double). Internet and free calls to USA and Canada are included. All you will need to stay here is food - and clothes!.
Spring Hill is situated in Hernando County on the Gulf and about 40 minutes drive from Tampa. The home is very close to the Weeki Watchee river and water park. The excellent Pine Island Beach (See photos) is 10 minutes away. There is lots to do - theme parks, golf, Manatee spotting,fishing, Wildlife parks,walking etc. Dont miss it!
My husband and I wanted to take our two little dogs with us on vacation, we would hate to leave them in a Kennel. We had never rented a home and didn't know what to expect.
This house was PERFECT. So much better than a hotel and we could leave the dogs while we were out without worrying!!!
The price was great, the neighborhood was great, and the house was beautiful!!! It's exactly as described.
There are plenty of stores and restaruants within a 5 minute drive.
Pine Island Beach is worth going to. I think it took about 10 minutes to get there. If you are there during peak season I suggest getting there early as the parking lot holds maybe 100 cars. Parking is only 2 dollars and there is a nice little snack shack that serves smoothies, sandwiches, fries, etc. and a good size playground for the little ones! Both days we went we saw dolphins playing around off shore! It's a very quiet beach. There are no shops, jet ski rentals, arcades or big waves (great for babies and younger kids)....it's a nice place to relax and enjoy the Florida sun!
Kayaking down Weeki Wachee is another must do! It took us about 2 1/2 hours but it was worth it. It's a nice quiet, peaceful, ride down the spring. We stopped about half way down and watched a family of manatee eating some plants close to shore!
If you are looking for a nice, quiet getaway this is the place for you. Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer. The owners are wonderful, very helpful, and easy to get in touch with if there is a question or a problem.
We would love to be able to stay here again someday!
My wife, myself and our small dog Sadie were privileged to rent this property and enjoy the amenities that the owners advertised and fully delivered. We have rented other properties via the internet with varying degrees of satisfaction. This property delivers more than we expected. The house, pool, owners and caretaker are all far above what we expected when we booked. We highly recommend the complete experience to any prospective renter. Thank you Murray, Julie and John... we are completely satisfied with what was advertised and then delivered. Cheers...
My wife and I recently spent three nights at this pleasant pool home in Spring Hill, Florida. The home was clean and well-equipped upon arrival. More than enough comfort and amenities to make our stay enjoyable. The surrounding community is quiet. The pool is large with ample pool deck/patio space for hours of outdoor enjoyment. And the home owners were very easy to work with. There are several nice waterfront restaurants within a 30 minutes drive for evening dinning and sunset viewing. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. This home is a great bargain that would be difficult to beat anywhere else! We will return, but next time with the kids.
This house was perfect! Loved the pool. It was nice to stay there cheaper than at a hotel and having your own private pool. The only thing I would recommend was having a box fan. I like to sleep with one for noise :) Went to Homosassa Wildlife park and Weeki Wachee.
My family had a wonderful time during our week long stay. The kids played in the pool every day. The adults even played in the pool since it was heated. This home was convenient to shopping, restaurants and many attractions. We swam with the manatees with Captain Steve at Birds Under Water in Crystal River and it was fantastic. We ate at Cody's Roadhouse and had the best carrot cake of all time. This home had all the comforts of home. The owners were a pleasure to work with.
We had an amazing vacation at this lovely home. We had rented homes before but this one was even nicer then it looked in the pictures and was spotlessly clean! Very comfortable with everything you could possibly need for your stay. King bed was very comfortable. We loved the pool and used it every day. The kids loved having their own rooms and having their own tv's for downtime. Close to lots of stores/restaurants. We enjoyed Weeki Watchee and the kayak down the river was amazing. Kids loved it and we saw manatee, fish, turtles, birds.. stopped for a swim along the way .. just a perfect day.
PIne Island Beach was also very nice.. we visited there twice and saw dolphins both days. Close enough to also do Busch Gardens and Adventure Island.
Murray was a pleasure to deal with and we will definately be returning to this lovely home.
The house is situated in a pleasant, quiet road and is close to all amenities. It is three minutes from local golf course and within easy reach of numerous other quality courses including World Woods and The Dunes. Weeki Wachi Springs is 5 minutes drive away where you can gently kayak in 3 feet of water (see photos), The excellent Pine Island beach (10 minutes), New Port Richey (famous for sunsets) Tarpon Springs, Crystal River and Homasassa Springs (great for kids from two to 92!) are within easy reach on the US19.
Ideal for 'recovering' with the kids from a week at Disney - still within 60 minutes drive. Tampa & Clearwater are a 40 minutes drive. This is THE place to relax without being remote.
Other Activities: Boating, Shopping, Kayaking, Wildlife Viewing
