Weeki Wachee Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

Click on the VRBO video camera on the left to see video of cabin inside and outside area. Charming waterfront cabin has all you need for a perfect vacation. Water views from every window. There is a front and rear covered porch to enjoy a meal, drink and the beautiful Florida weather. Bring your boat and dock it right at the cabin. There is plenty of room to park your boat trailer- 2 lovely treed landscaped lots and 183 feet on the water. Explore the cool crystal clear 6 mile Weeki Wachee River. The river leads into the Gulf of Mexico and Mud River (about a ten minute boat ride). Kayaks (for 5) and a canoe (2) are provided free for your use. Or if you prefer to rent a small motor boat, the marina is a ½ block walk. Month long rentals have choice of free pontoon or flats boat trip with USCG licensed captain, Larry Roderick.

The cabin was completely remodeled down to the studs and was just finished May 2012. There is a front covered deck to enjoy watching all the goings on at the park. The private large covered back porch has a comfortable seating area and outdoor eating area. There is an electrical outlet if you prefer your morning coffee brewed on the porch. There is a seating area in the yard with a fire pit or you may wish to relax on the dock and watch the fish.

You will enjoy all new appliances, new Sealy posturpedic beds, a washer and dryer, a new 37” Panasonic HDTV with hundreds of crystal clear channels, music and Netflix, wi fi (lightning 40 Mb), DVR, and free long distance. There is a bedroom at each end of the cabin. The master bedroom has a queen bed and a full bathroom (hair dryer provided). The other bedroom has two twin beds and a full bathroom with connecting door. The living room couch has a recliner at each end and also two club chairs with ottomans. The fully equipped kitchen has everything you will need-coffee maker, toaster, blender, dishwasher, microwave, wall oven, and cooktop with vent. There is a washer and dryer inside the cabin for your use. The cabin is comfortable for four people, but if you have five we do have a new rollaway bed for your use.

Yes, there is central airconditioning and five ceiling fans. There is a heat pump for the cooler weather.

You will not feel the summer heat if you take a dip in the cool 72 degree spring water. It is so refreshing!

Husband Larry is retired FL State worker. Wife Linda is a retired registered nurse. We love to boat and fish and always take our dogs along. We have two Chihuahuas and two maltipoos. All four pups have life preservers and enjoy their time on the water and exploring islands. I, Linda, love gardening and collect orchids, ferns, begonias, and succulents. It has been fun landscaping around the cabin.

Larry started an inshore fishing charter business about 5 years ago when he retired. Some clients prefer his flats boat and others like to use the pontoon so more can fish. He loves taking folks fishing and enjoys creating great memories for his clients.

Linda Roderick purchased this cabin in 2012

We moved to this location in Weeki Wachee 22 years ago and enjoy it very much. We consider this area a paradise. In January 2012 the place across the street became available. We decided to remodel it and use it as a rental so others could enjoy our haven. Now, I must explain, although we are across the street, we cannot see the cabin for the trees. And we will of course respect your privacy. But if you have a need, we are here to help. We want to share our paradise with others.

We especially enjoy that we are just 4 miles from the conveniences and crowds on the US 19, but yet in this peaceful haven it is laid back and stress free. Seeing the seabirds, boats going by, people enjoying the sunshine as they kayak past us, viewing manatees, river otters, deer, and porpoise from our second story window is always a joy. We never tire of seeing herds of manatees and have enjoyed their touch as they have brushed against us on the river. Cooling off in the 72 degree water refreshes us for the entire day. There are so many sandy private beaches along the winding river to get out of the kayak and take a dip or you may prefer to dip at Rogers Park. Our favorite kayak trip is down the Weeki Wachee River to the connecting Mud River to a narrow creek that has wild orchids growing in the trees. It takes several hours to make the trek and it has been a ritual we enjoy every few months. Recently we put our kayaks in at the Weeki Wachee Springs Attraction ($5.00 fee per kayak to launch from the Springs) and enjoyed a scenic four hour kayak adventure.

OUR LITTLE PIECE OF HEAVEN !

  • 5 of 5
Loved returning to our little peace of heaven, our 10th time? We can't get enough of this wonderful place and have to plan early to book this popular place ! Everytime we go, we find added little extras that make this cabin more endearing. Always spotlessly clean, Linda's orchids on the dining room table always welcoming us, the garden surrounding the cabin gets more beautiful every time we come. We love having the dock to launch our own kayaks but if you don't have your own, they have kayaks and canoe available, included in the rent, and right there, that will save you a bundle from renting from outlying companies. Even if you don't want to kayak/canoe, and just want to enjoy a peaceful getaway, this cabin is perfect, the cabin has everything you need, just bring your clothes and toothbrush and there is plenty of attractions and nearby resteraunts to keep you busy, or if you just want to hang out and relax, the back porch is especially a private peace of heaven to sit out on to watch the blue birds fly about, watch the manatees loll in the river, and the coolness of the river keeps the air cool and comfortable all the time. We love the grill and the outdoor fire pit which we can enjoy in summer, as well as, will look forward to sitting around in the Fall, watching the fireflies flit around during the evening. The best value rental around, on this gorgeous river. We love that it is only an hour drive from Tampa Bay area. Thank you Linda and Larry for always being the best hosts and for putting such love and and attention to providing your guest the best experience !

Accommodating, Comfortable & Great!
  • 5 of 5
Recently stayed at this home with my family & had a wonderful time. The house is great, everything you need is provided. The garden/yard was beautiful. Tons of flowers, plants, & shady trees to enjoy. There is EVERYTHING Florida right around the corner. While there we seen manatee, otter, crabs, fish, lizards, bald eagles, & gators! Swimming is close (right across the street) & there are plenty of other water activities to enjoy. We all had a very nice time & hope to return in the future for another relaxing vacation. Kudos to the owners, they do a fantastic job of providing a clean, lovely & affordable place to stay.

GREAT STAY!

  • 5 of 5
We spent the entire month of March at Larry & Linda's lovely cabin. They had supplied the cabin with anything one might need for a stress free vacation. Unlike other rentals we have used, we didn't have to run out right away to stock up on everyday needs like paper products, laundry products, and basic kitchen supplies. Linda provided lots of information regarding places of interest. We especially enjoyed a boat ride to the gulf with Larry. We loved hearing his stories about his experiences as a boat captain. We also enjoyed having kayaks available to use anytime we wanted. We also had access to Rogers Park across the street, and The Upper Deck was over the bridge for those evenings when we didn't want to cook. This is a great place to spend a few days or a month away from home. Thank you Larry and Linda!

COMFORTABLE CLEAN CABIN ON THE WATER

  • 5 of 5
The cabin has everything you could ever need and more to enjoy your stay. The interior was clean and well maintained with beautiful landscaping in a great location. It was convenient to local attractions, restaurants, and shopping. The cabin was just like the photos posted on VRBO. We really enjoyed the use of the Kyaks provided. The Weeki Wachee River was great; we saw manatees just upstream from the cabin. Larry was kind enough to take us up to the springs so we could kayak down to the cabin.
The ride out to the Gulf with Larry and Linda on their pontoon boat was a real plus. They were both very friendly and accommodating.
Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to stay at your vacation rental. Even with the few cool rainy days it was most enjoyable. I can say with confidence that anyone that books this cabin will not be disappointed.

BEST PLACE, GREAT LOCATION, & HOSPITALITY!

Best Place, Great Location, & Hospitality!
  • 5 of 5
My family stayed here while we were in town for a wedding at the Weeki Wachee Springs Park. The location was five minutes away from the park, tucked away on a quiet country road. The cabin was clean, nicely decorated, and the photos are accurate. The cabin exterior was beautifully landscaped. You can sit and relax on either front or back porch, or sit by the floating dock on the water. There are several kayaks and a canoe to paddle around and see manatees and numerous species of fish in the clear water of Weeki Wachee. You can also wind down the night with a Netflix movie on the Roku. Or relax by the fire pit outback. There is also a gas grill for outdoor cooking.

The cabin felt more like home than a rental. It was stocked with everything you would need or might need. We didn't have to buy a bunch of little things like when we stayed at other vacation rentals.

Overall, this has to be the best rental I had ever experienced. From my first inquiry to booking, staying, and checking out Linda and Larry made everything easy and set themselves apart from any other place I had ever stayed.
