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 .

Quality

  • 5 of 5
Stayed herethe last week in July. This is the latest in a long list of Florida homes we have used and was the the 3rd separate house on this trip. It is one of if not the best we have rented. The area is quiet but gorgeous. The house is the same. Set down between 2 beautiful rivers on a linking canal the house has 3 canoes which we used daily to get up the river and out toward the bay. This isn't uncommon though and other homes offer the same. What is uncommon is the style and the standard of the house and its fittings and furnishings. Gorgeous wooden floors, comfortable lazy boys, hardwood finishes to everywhere, light, airy. Air conditioning spot on, a better TV than at home with a top Cable set up on which you could watch anything. Top quality kitchen. Terrace and pool with Jacuzzi supplied with comfortable shaded sofa's for getting out of the sun where you could sit and look over the water. My favourite spot was on the lanai covered balcony on the 1st floor though. Beautiful. When I booked this house I was a little nervy as it looked too good for its price range. It was. We got a real bargain. Anybody looking for the most chilled out of weeks needs to look at this property, its great.

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5
My husband, daughter, and I spent 2 weeks in this home. It is beautiful inside and out and has anything one could need/want to enjoy a vacation. We spent most of our days by the pool and really enjoyed kayaking through the canals. We spent most of our evenings on the screened in porch. We would definitely recommend this home!

Superb Villa

  • 5 of 5
Everything you will need for a relaxing holiday is presented in this immaculate property. The location is superb; quiet and with lovely views of the waterway to be had whilst relaxing on the terrace or cooling off in the stunning pool. Given this location and the comprehensive facilities on offer many would be tempted to stay put for their whole holiday. But that would be a shame as exploring the Weeki Wachee River in the provided kayaks is well worth the effort. An abundance of birdlife is present and we saw manatees right alongside the boat dock. Beach lovers can enjoy Palm Island which is just a short drive away. Golfers will enjoy World Woods – a 20 minute drive – and we would also recommend Brooksville Country Club which was in good condition and very reasonably priced. Diners have plenty of choice locally but for fish and prime rib lovers our recommendation would be The Bay Port Inn just 5 minutes down the road - look out for the daily specials. A very enjoyable time is guaranteed in this lovely property. Thanks Bryan and we hope to return in the not too distant future.

Relaxing eight week stay at 3 Palms

  • 5 of 5
3 Palms Villa was our home for eight wonderful weeks. As two retired couples, we appreciated the privacy provided by the split layout of the bedrooms. The master suite was as beautiful as the pictures suggest. The other two bedrooms and second bath along with the laundry room were in a separate hallway that could be closed off with a pocket door to create, what was for us, another master suite. The photos on the website do not include the third bedroom, which was a beautiful large room with another king sized bed and windows facing the front of the house. Each of the three bedrooms as well as the living room had large, flat screened TVs.
The living room, kitchen, and dining area were connected in a very large open space providing plenty of room for two couples to share. Doors from the master bedroom, living room, and dining area opened up to a long screened in balcony which looked down upon the pool and canal providing more living space.
The kitchen was large enough for two people to share in meal preparation which we did most of the time. However, there were several restaurants we enjoyed within a short drive.
Probably our favorite space was the dining area. Five large windows looked out onto the canal. The four of us spent a lot of time at the round table eating, talking, watching the boats go up and down the canal, and assembling jigsaw puzzles (we bought a thick poster board for the puzzle so we could move it at meal times).
The only drawback for us, and it really is not a criticism because the house is near water, is the stairs. There are steps up to the house, then more steps up into the living area, and stairs off the balcony down to the pool. Carrying groceries and going up the stairs from the pool to go to the bathroom were sometimes annoying but certainly not a deal breaker. (Did I mention we are all retirement age?)
The pool was nice and more private than the photos imply.
Bryan was extremely accommodating, responding swiftly to our questions and concerns throughout our stay. Keith, who came weekly to maintain the pool and spa, and to address any concerns was also very friendly, patient, and helpful. But don't get me wrong. We did not have any major issues.
I certainly can give this house a five star rating. We loved our stay at 3 Palms. We're now back home again in Indiana, and though it always feels good to be home, we miss our "winter home" at 3 Palms Villa.

Great week in Weeki Wachee

  • 5 of 5
First off I want to say Thank you to Bryan and his wife for allowing us to visit Florida in style and stay at their lovely home.

My family had a wonderful week in this beautiful home. Very spacious, bright home with great view of the pool area and river. Very quiet street for walking and jogging in a safe community.

Everything needed for cooking home cooked meals was provided in the kitchen and outdoor grilling.

Awesome living room area with Smart TV, fireplace, and power reclining leather lazy boys that your body melts in to and you don't want to move.

We used the provided Kayaks daily and saw tons of different wildlife from birds, fish and several manatees, a truly great experience.

Bryan was very quick to get back to us with any questions or concerns we had with booking our vacation at his home and while we were there. Keith his property manager was also great to talk to about the home and area and took care of the pool and hot tub for us which with the heated pool my kids pretty much lived in for the week.

This listing is very accurate to its description and photos. Property is very well maintained and clean. I would highly recommend this property to stay for your vacation in Florida.

Hope to visit again next year!
