WATERFRONT HOME WITH MANATEES AND MERMAIDS, TOO!

Weeki Wachee House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedroom, 2 bathroom waterfront near Gulf of Mexico

Our waterfront home is the perfect place for friends and family to unwind. You can catch freshwater AND saltwater fish and crabs right off the 75’ dock, or relax inside the screened patio while you watch the manatees play! We are located on a peaceful canal just minutes from the majestic, crystal clear Weeki Wachee River that leads directly into the Gulf of Mexico. Bring your boat, canoe, kayak or paddleboard, or just rent them nearby to experience the wildlife and beauty of Florida’s Nature Coast. The kids will also want to visit the waterpark, the white sand beach, and the world-famous LIVE MERMAID SHOW only 5 minutes away. At the end of the day you can cook your own catch or dine at one of many great local restaurants.

About Joy Suldo

We are two retired couples who have been friends for years. We have vacationed together all over Florida and the states. Currently, one couple lives in Georgia and we live in Kissimmee, Florida. My husband & I are retired Florida teachers, and the other couple retired from Disney World.

Joy Suldo purchased this house in 2012

Why Joy Suldo chose Weeki Wachee

We have boated on Florida's beautiful gulf coast for the last 40 years to catch fish, crabs and scallops. We chose this property when we retired because of it's many freshwater and saltwater activities. It has become the perfect second home.

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with this home because it is on a peaceful canal off the pristeen Weeki Wachee River, and we can boat from our dock to the Gulf. The area is filled with manatees, and surrounded by state parks and untouched scenery. We catch freshwater fish such as bass and bluegill, as well as saltwater species such as snapper, redfish, sheepshead, trout, mullet and crabs RIGHT OFF OUR DOCK. Larger fish and scallops are minutes away in the Gulf. Swimming and boating options are unbelievable - kayaking, paddleboarding, canoeing, and tubing are perfect for the river, and our 17' motorboat easily navigates the river to the Gulf. The dock is 75 feet along the length of the property and fits two boats with enough room left for the kayaks.

Waterfront Home with Manatees and Mermaids Too

  • 5 of 5
This Waterfront Home was our "home" for two months. It was such an awesome place to stay! The inside of the house was beautiful and very comfortable. We spent a lot of our time outside...picking fresh oranges and lemons off the trees, fishing off the large dock area or just relaxing in the screened patio. We would recommend this rental home to anyone wanting a nice, convenient, and relaxing place to stay. Also came with very nice and accommodating home owners!

Great Vacation spot

  • 5 of 5
We have just spent the month of March at Freind's Retreat. I recommend this house highly! It has a great location to see and visit local attractions. In addition, the owners have gone out of their way to make sure that their renters have everything for comfort. They are very friendly and were kind enough to meet us at the house and gave us suggestions for things to do in the area. They provide a very well organized notebook including house instructions, restaurant menus, and brochures of the area attractions.

The house is spotless, grounds well maintained, paper and cleaning products are supplied, cupboards are organized and well stocked with decent dishes, glasses, flatware, pans etc. Beds are comfortable with nice linens, plenty of towels. I cannot say enough about how neat, clean and well organized this house is!

We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would be happy to stay here again if/when we return to Weeki Wachee!!!

Must see the world-famous mermaid show at Weeki Wachee Springs, also home of Buccaneer Bay, Florida's only spring fed waterpark. Admission includes a jungle boat ride! Also must experience the 5-mile canoe/kayak run from Weeki Wachee Springs to the Gulf, with return transportation provided back to the Springs. Pine Island Beach is a beautiful white sand public beach and park, also a must-see. All these places are only 5 minutes away! RIGHT IN THE BACK YARD, must see the endless manatees that congregate in the Weeki Wachee River, especially at Hospital Hole, entryway to a 150-foot deep dive right in the middle of the river.
