My wife & I live and work in Scotland. We bought this villa last year as a potential retirement home and as such have furnished it to a standard that we would enjoy in our primary home in Scotland. We are regular visitors to the villa and consider it a second home and not just somewhere we rent out. We love the area and the 'Old Florida ' feel . The wildlife views and general nature coast is stunning and we find new places to explore every time we visit. We hope that you will enjoy the villa and area as much as we do.
Bryan Whitelaw purchased this house in 2011
We have been coming to Florida since the 1980's and it was always our dream to one day live here. Having travelled all over the state from the panhandle to the keys we found that Weeki Wachee has solitude enough to provide quiet and relaxation but is close enough to Tampa
for ease of travel and cultural experiences. There is so much to do in the area that it could never be boring yet the tranquility is so awe inspiring that you will want to return time and again just like us.
The house is one of only a few available in the area with its own private swimming pool. Although swimming in the river is good fun the pool is far more comfortable and safe for guests to keep an eye on children. The local bar restaurant is a short walk away or if you brought the boat a 10 minute boat ride from the dock right to the dock of the Upper Deck. Live music and friendly locals make this a must visit experience. The manatees swimming past the dock is also a magical experience and an every day occasion.
Nearby Hernando Beach has a good selection of bars and restaurants. Day trips to Busch Gardens in Tampa or the Dali Museum and International Mall are all but an hours drive away.Further north is Crystal River and Homosassa with a selection of attractions such as monkey island and Neon Leons Zydeco bar and restaurant .

We rented the property for our adult children. They all had an amazing time. They thought they would visit surrounding areas but found that the home and property were all too beautiful to pass up for a relaxing vacation in the pool and kayaking on the river and gulf. It was very much enjoyed by all and the home was so well equipped with everything they needed they didn't have to leave only to purchase the groceries needed for the week.
Bryan was very helpful and answered all questions promptly regarding the property. Our children will consider this property again for future vacations.
Thanks for the beautiful home and enjoyable vacation Bryan.

We had such a marvellous time. The house was just perfect. My children and I loved the pool and hot tub. The boys loved the fishing off the deck. We felt really comfortable in the house and in the neighbourhood. We will definitely return. Thanks Bryan and Lorraine for allowing us to stay at your home.
We stayed at Three Palms in February and it was definitely a five-star experience. We particularly loved the quiet natural setting and saw many exotic birds on our walks. The house has everything you could wish for in a vacation property, and then some. We took in the Mermaid show, which was unique and went to the wildlife park nearby. Both were very enjoyable experiences. My husband, who is an avid golfer, went off to play at 5 or 6 of the area courses, most impressive of which was the Pine Barrens at World Woods. My sister and I shopped on Cortez Avenue until we dropped. We also decided to sample every slice of key lime pie we could find and that was an amazing experience!
Bryan was very responsive to all of our requests and it was a wonderful vacation.
We enjoyed a fabulous week long stay at this lovely property. The house is very well equipped and is in a great location to enjoy numerous outdoor activities. Great place to go if you want to see lots of manatees! This is a beautiful Old Florida vacation spot. We highly recommend and plan to return again!
Awesome property with everything you could want in a vacation. Such a quiet relaxing area. Loved it and will be back for sure!
We've been coming to Florida for quite a number of years to visit family and many visits ago got over the lure of the Orlando area. On the last visit we came to Weeki Wachee to see the Mermaid show that was on TV when I was growing up. It's still there and pretty amazing in a kitschy way. We fell in love with the area after renting a canoe and paddling the river. I looked at just about every VRBO Weeki Wachee rental for out most recent vacation (Nov 2014). The 3 Palms Villa really stood out. For about the same money you could have shag carpet and dark walnut paneling or you could get this place with pool and classy décor. I agree with another reviewer who said it looked too good for the price. I also agree that it is a fantastic bargain.
Our week was great in every respect. The house was comfortable. All the amenities are first rate and the electronics up to date. We got great use out of the kayaks, pool, and new hot tub. We rented a boat at the marina and went out into the gulf for a nice excursion.
The local restaurant we ended up liking was "R Beach", down the road on Shoal Line. They have live jazz on Wednesday nights and the Owner and Staff treated us like regulars on the first visit. Second choice was the Upper Deck for nice atmosphere, good food, and friendly service. We must have caught the Bayport Inn on a bad night, because other reviewers seemed to like it. We didn't have a good meal or service there.
Bryan was a very responsive owner in regards to communication. He obviously cares a great deal for this house and it is more than a typical rental. I felt privileged to be allowed to rent such a nice house at such a reasonable price. We hope to visit again.
