EXPERIENCE 'OLD FLORIDA' FROM A CHARMING WATERFRONT COTTAGE

Weeki Wachee Cottage Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps up to 6 people)

Experience ''old Florida'' and enjoy the quiet, laid-back lifestyle of the ''Nature Coast'' from this fully furnished, well maintained, two story cottage. The large tree shaded yard offers plenty of privacy with great opportunities for viewing an abundance of wildlife, including seasonal manatee, numerous shore birds, water fowl, birds of prey, and otters. Launch the two kayaks, and/or the canoe provided, and enjoy the paddle while you acquaint yourself with the scenic waterways that extend from the brackish water of the ''Mud River'', to the clear springs of the famous Weeki Wachee River, and the saltier waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Favorite places for sunset are at Bayport Pier and Pine Island Beach, both of which are about three miles from this awesome property.

Numerous recreational opportunities and wildlife experiences can be enjoyed from this area, including world class tarpon fishing in May and June, and scalloping in July and August.

There are several county parks in the area, including Bayport Pier with boat ramps and picnic facilities, Pine Island beach park, and Roger's Park on the cool, clear waters of the Weeki Wachee River. Florida's historic Weeki Wachee Springs Mermiad attraction, and Buccaneer Bay water park and canoe and kayak outpost are about four miles east, on Highway 19.

You need not venture far from this wilderness area to find quality restaurants, shopping, and medical facilities. The Tampa International Airport is only 57 miles southeast of this unique hideaway via the Suncoast Parkway (aka SR 589), and Walt Disney World is approx. 90 miles east, via SR 50.

I love the west coast of Florida, especially those areas that remind me of 'old style Florida' from my youth. I was lucky to find this unique property on Hernando county's 'Nature Coast'. To me, it's the perfect property for rest and relaxation, but it also offers a wide variety of recreational opportunities and wildlife experiences, some of which can't be found in most other counties in Florida. Scalloping is one of those favorite summer activities of mine that I am able to enjoy from this cottage during July and August, and Hernando county is one of the few Florida counties with an open scallop season.

Opportunities for kayaking and canoe adventures are available from this waterfront property located on a brackish water canal with quick access to the Weeki Wachee River and the Gulf of Mexico. About three miles west of this property at Bayport Pier is a nice county park with boat ramps, picnic facilities and a boardwalk. Charter fishing and boat rentals are available nearby, and there are a variety of public boat ramps and waterfront parks in the area that offer pier and shore fishing. Nearby Bayport Pier and Pine Island Beach are favorite spots for sunsets and picnics. 'Roger's Park' on the Weeki Wachee River is another popular county park with sandy banks and a public swimming area for those who prefer fresh spring water.

Amazing Rental!

The "Mud Hole" was amazing! We had a wonderful time. Being right on the water made the view beautiful at all times and going out on the kayaks was a lot of fun. The rental was very clean and was stocked with anything and everything you could think of to make our stay care free. The property is also close enough to town to get anything you need but far enough away to feel private and secluded. The owners were wonderful and very easy to deal with. We can't wait to go back!

A little piece of heaven

What can I say, this was the most amazing place ever. I am so sorry we only had 6 days here, as I could have spent 6 months here. It is so private, and yet close to restaurants and shops. The river is amazing, we saw plenty of Manatee, and even saw a mammy and baby. The interior of the house is so quaint and comfortable, even nicer than the photos show. The sunsets in Pine Island is something that my husband, two kids and I will remember forever. Just breath taking. We have been to Florida many times, but never to anywhere as beautiful as this. We would really love to come back some time. Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to sample this wonderful vacation rental.

We were in the middle of "Old Florida" at this great location near Weeki Wachee. The house and property has everything you need for a quiet getaway, plenty of privacy. It is a great spot for a fishing vacation or just canoeing and kayaking on the Mud River. Plenty of close places for hiking and bird and animal watching. Great yard with a grill, and everything you need to relax, we can't wait to go back.

Two things really stood out for us. First, this location is great! Second, the house has all the stuff you could ever need to enjoy your stay. Great managers, clean home and it was easy to get to other attractions in the area.

If your'e into wildlife viewing, the paddle from this house to the Bayport pier was a really enjoyable time. We saw rays, a turtle, osprey, bald eagles, fish, cranes, herons, ibis and several others. Great times.
