Upon arriving in Hernando Beach, of course we were using our Iphone trying to find our home. We saw the house and my husband made me call the owner because he just KNEW I had put in the wrong address. The house is GORGEOUS! Pictures don't even begin to do it justice. We have two almost grown children and there was plenty of room for all of us. The house was immaculate with every comfort we could wish for. There were three short flights of stairs to the main living area. There was something amazing to see in every corner. The kitchen bar (a boat!) was so lovely. The decor was fun and very comfortable. The three bedrooms were all beautifully decorated and we were all so comfortable. Since my daughter has been in graduate school and is about to finish, we let her have the upper bedroom with the most gorgeous view you can imagine. At the back of the house is a beautiful dock. As soon as we looked out, we saw dolphins! We were treated to a view of manatee and many beautiful birds throughout the week. My husband and son continually fished, but didn't catch much. However, we were told by all the neighbors that the fishing is usually fantastic. There is an unfinished room in the basement, with a functional bathroom, which was quite handy when fishing!
Go to Hernando Beach knowing that it is not your typical Florida town. It is very small and at the beginning you have to look for restaurants. The owner left a notebook filled with suggestions and we tried many of them. Our favorite, although all were good, was Bayport Inn. Wonderful fried shrimp. We made several day trips, including a trip to Fort DeSoto Beach, Tarpon Springs Beach, Homossassa State Park, a deep sea fishing trip, and a trip to the Ikea store in Tampa. Other than my son's severe seasickness and being involved in a 5 car pileup (we were fine), it was an idyllic vacation. I would love to go again.
