This home has been in my family since 1985. My parents retired and bought this home to be able to slow down and enjoy the beauty and tranquility of the Weeki Wackee River. I am a native of Tampa and I enjoy my time at my Weeki Wachee house as much as my parents did, maybe even more.

The Owner purchased this house in 1985

As a teen I would come to the Weeki Wachee River and go camping with my horseback riding club. We would camp in the woods and frolic in the water with our horses. On other occasions we would just come for the day with our old truck tubes and ride them down the river. This river has brought me many decades of pleasure and happy memories.

The home underwent a beautiful renovation in July of 2009. Since then I have decided to rent it as a vacation home. I now have the opportunity to let others enjoy it as well as myself. So far it has given me such pleasure. I enjoy the outdoors to every extent from biking, kayaking, fishing, scalloping, or just sitting on the dock in the morning drinking a cup of hot coffee or tea. There are so many opportunities close by for you to be able to enjoy nature and the outdoors. I sit and watch the eagles and the falcons in the sky and look out for the manatees and the otters in the canal. What a joy :)

I hope you will take the opportunity to come and stay and get as much pleasure out of my home as I do.

"Perfect girls weekend"

"Perfect girls weekend"
  • 5 of 5
My daughters planned a surprise “Girls-Get-Away-Weekend” and keeping the destination a secret, promised it would be “fun.” Pulling into the driveway long after dark, afforded little insight as to what lay beyond the front door. As the lights were flipped on room after room, I was taken back by what I saw (and thanks to my earlier imagination – what I didn’t see). The open living room with the stone wall framing the fireplace seemed to invite one to go and curl up on the huge leather couch with a good book or to share the details of the day’s events with family or friends. Your kitchen has everything one would need to create gourmet meals and I love the wonderful bar that opens into the living & dining room enabling the “chef” to still interact with everyone. Before turning in, we took our wine and headed down to the dock where chairs & a table were strategically placed. The moon was bright – no flashlights needed. Owls in the distance provided the background music for nearby crickets, and the occasional “popping” of a fish on the surface of the water were the only sounds we heard. With a satisfying sigh I thought… it just couldn’t get better than this! But it did. After the best night’s sleep I’d had in years (literally), the 3 of us kayaked to the Weeki Wachee River and then out to the Gulf of Mexico. An amazingly easy trip! The water is so cool and crystal clear. I couldn’t believe that we saw 6 small waterfalls emptying into the river – who knew, waterfalls in Florida?! Unfortunately, as all good things invariably come to an end, so did our weekend. We all agreed this would be the start of a new family tradition and began making plans to come back. This vacation rental has everything one could want – both inside and out. Also, the close proximity to the untouched wilderness of the river despite the stores being close by if needed is a bonus. What a wonderful, amazing place you have! Just prior to leaving, I wandered down to the dock to enjoy a few moments of solitude. It was then I realized that I was leaving with so much more than I came with, something extra I didn’t expect - I came to know my daughters better than I ever did – not as my children, but as the amazing women they have become. Thank you for sharing your home with us. I look forward to returning again and again and… Sincerely, Sheree’ B.

Our stay

The place was spotless inside. Everything we needed was provided. We were dying to try the kayak, but ran out of time. The location was very convenient with lots of things to do in the area. Highly recommended place to stay.

Weeki Wachee Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5
Pat, thank you for the nice place to stay this past January. I knew you personally took care of your home as it was very clean. It truly was a home rather than just a vacation rental. We enjoyed sitting on the dock overlooking the canal. We are very familiar with the Weeki Wachee/Spring Hill/ Hudson area. There are tons of restaurants to choose from. We truly enjoyed your home and would recommend it to anyone interested in staying in the area. Jim & Ann

Owner's Response: I enjoy the area so much I would love to make that my primary home some day. Even my son spends many weekends there enjoying the water activities.

Great place to relax and enjoy the nature coast of Florida.

  • 5 of 5
The house is lovely, quiet, and equipped with everything you need and lots of information about the nearby sites. It was clean and the beds are very comfortable. And NO bugs inside. The owner was extremely helpful in the planning as well as when we arrived. My sister and I ventured out in the 2-person kayak, down the canal and up the river. What a beautiful place! You must go see Weeki Wachee and if you're fortunate like me, enroll in their adult mermaid camp so you can swim in the springs (which seems to be the fountain of youth). We also visited Pine Island Beach and had fine meals at the Bayport Inn, Thai Room (exceptional), and La Bella Napoli (real close to house). This neighborhood is a throwback to when life was much simpler. What a treasure!

Dont pass this one by

  • 5 of 5
This home was very clean. Great large screened and enclosed patio area that overlooks the canal. Nice deck on canal with chairs great to have your morning java. Kitchen had all the things you would need to cook at home if you wished. Beds were very comfortable and sheets were nice quality. Home is close to lots of fun things to do, weeki wachee, ect. Owners pictures do not do this home justice. Dont pass this one by. Owner was easy to reach and very helpful. Thank you Pat. We will be back.

Cute house in quiet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5
We found this house to be the perfect base to explore the various attractions of the "nature coast". The house was tidy and well equipped. It was very relaxing to come back to at the end of the day after kayaking or hitting the beach. Late afternoon usually found us chilling on the little deck next to the canal watching the many birds, turtles and jumping fish. We even had a manatee visit one evening.
