WATCH MANATEES FROM THE QUIET, SHADED DECK OF THIS HOME

Weeki Wachee House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

View manatees in the clear water that flows past our property while you swim, canoe, kayak, or boat around our home. In about a 10 minute boat ride you can be in the Gulf of Mexico. Choose an island of your choice just off the coast to picnic and watch the sun set. Get a work out by taking a canoe or kayak trip up the Weeki Wachee River, then relax as the current brings you back home. Enjoy up close and personal many of our local birds, fish, and tropical plants in a quiet and relaxed setting.

The property itself is on a quiet corner lot at the end of Tuscawilla Drive. Clear spring fed water flows by two sides of the property. It is exciting to look below the surface of the water and watch a 8" wide blue crab feed on the bottom. Watch the snook, sheephead, and mullet swim by regularly. The manatee love the spring just 200 feet past our home. Enjoy the shade of a large Florida Oak, the beauty of flowered azalea bushes, and lots of flowering plants. You can enjoy a gentle Gulf breeze while standing on the deck of the modular home built on stilts. Bring your boat, jet ski, canoe, kayak and tie up to our boat dock. Bring your fishing poles. Or bring your puzzles. Enjoy and Relax!!!

Close by is Weeki Wachee Spring and the live Mermaid show. Pine Island provides a public Gulf Beach area for picnicing and swimming. Watch the dolphins play while you walk out 1/4 mile and still only be waist to chest deep in water. Go south to Tampa for the activities there or head due east about a two hour drive to Disney and Orlando.

Locally, you can find a variety of restaurants and shopping centers. Everything that you need can be found within six miles from your furnished home.

LOAD OF FUN!

  • 5 of 5
A few couples wanted to get away from the kids, celebrate a birthday and an anniversary for a few days. WE had a BLAST! Honestly, it was more fun than you cn imagine. WE boated all day and laughed all night in this secluded little tree top house :) Saw a baby manatee and momma on the river, and cruised to the gulf for a sunset too.

Owner's Response: Our home is very convenient to the river and the Gulf. It is very quiet and shady. As you peer down from our upper deck you can see everything in the water as it is fairly clear. Watch for the manatees as you never know when they will swim by.

NATURE COAST GEM!

  • 5 of 5
After reading all the previous reviews and actually staying here for two wonderful months
I can only agree with all the great reviews written before me. This really felt like a home away from home with many more extras. There was always something to do and the comfort, the view, not to mention warm weather! There was no greater host than David the owner. It was a real pleasure meeting him and he helped in every way possible. We're already excited about returning next year for another great stay. If your looking for a great home to rent in this area this is a real find.

WOW, WHAT A WONDERUL THANKSGIVING WEEK

  • 5 of 5
My husband and 2- grandchildren ages 10 and 8 stayed for 5 nights, everything you need (dishwashing liquid, cleaning supplies)was there I mean everything. My grandsons would go down to fish and run upstairs excited about the different kinds of fish they had seen, and was in awe of the manatees that were close enough to touch . The owner was so accommodating to our family in every way... We had several places to choose from but actually know this place was a Blessing from the Lord.......We have relatives in the area and will be staying again.....Thank you !!!!

Owner's Response: The water around our home is clear. You can see bass, blue gill, sheephead, needlefish, mangrove snapper, mullet, crab, and snook from our dock. But nothing is more exciting that when the manatee swim by our home so close that you can reach out and almost touch them.

PERFECT FOR US...

  • 5 of 5
The house was truly amazing. Has everything you need. Almost like walking into your own home.
The owner (David) was an absolute Gem!! Can't rave enough about him. He bent over backwards to accommodate our last minute visit. And it went off without a hitch.
We met two other families that live right behind his home, and absolutely loved them. So much so, that we have booked another weekend, two weeks away.
I've stayed at a few other places here in Weeki Wachee, but will not look any further. I believe we have found a place that we will visit very often.

AND my husband agrees!! What could be better than that??

Great house, everything you need! Great location,jump in the canal behind the house and float down to the cul-de-sac sinkhole or jump in your boat docked behind the house to head up to Hospital hole or out to the Gulf to play! Scallopping was great this year, gotta know the hot spots! After your day on the river, come back to the house to relax, do some grillen'and chillen' until the next day you wake up and do it all over again!!!! Ahhhh, the life of a river rat!!! Calling all mermaids and mermans!!! Thanks David for sharing your house with us.We'll be back soon:)

Owner's Response: Thank you Susie for your excellent and appreciated comments. If anyone is looking for a nice Spanish cuisine restaurant in Tampa, I would suggest you try Columbia on 7th St.
