About Bryan Whitelaw
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
Why Bryan Whitelaw chose Weeki Wachee
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.
What makes this house unique
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 .
