About Michelle Elferdink

We are true Floridians, born and raised. I am now an airline pilot living in Dubai. Having traveled the world, lived all over the United States and internationally, we call Hernando Beach HOME! We love it there!

Michelle Elferdink purchased this house in 2009

Why Michelle Elferdink chose Hernando Beach

My family has owned a house in the community since 1979 and we loved spending weekends there! When this property became available, we jumped on the opportunity and have spent the last 4 years refurbishing the home.

What makes this house unique

I believe this to be the best positioned property in the community with the easterly sunrise over Dolphins Bay and the westerly sunset over the Gulf of Mexico! With fishing and swimming just out the door.

Less than 2 miles to some of the best restaurants in Florida, along with pubs and dockside tiki bars. 10 minute drive to Publix grocery, a super Walmart, movie theater, bowling alley, etc, etc, etc.

Nice vacation on the Gulf

  • 5 of 5

Great home. Clean and comfortable. My wife an I enjoyed a two week stay this winter. Many opportunities for different adventures every day. Enjoyed meeting and talking with the neighbors; very friendly. The owners are extremely good people to deal with and make every effort to see that you are enjoying your stay.

Awesome House!!

  • 5 of 5

This property was great. House is very well maintained and you can't beat the view of the gulf! We saw lots of birds, dolphin, manatee, and a few sting rays.

Fantastic Property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property whilst visiting family for 'Thanks Giving'. The location at Hernando Beach was perfect for us, away for the commercial hustle and bustle of other tourist spots, whilst still having enough local bars and restaurants so we didn't have to venture too far, and all other main shops and supermarkets within a 4 mile drive. The house itself was ideal for our needs, with a brilliant range of facilities which fully suited our needs, and absolutely magnificent uninterrupted views straight out onto the Gulf of Mexico, which could be enjoyed whilst: either laying in bed, preparing food in the kitchen or just lazing in the hot tub; during our stay we saw: manatee, dolphin, eagles, ospreys, heron, pelicans and other wildlife in abundance. The only thing we would have liked to have had, would be a little more screening from the main road whilst in the hot tub, and the master bedroom has a glass door, which has obviously been fitted to let light into the upstairs landing area, but meant we had to be rather careful whilst wandering around our bedroom for the nights our son and daughter in law stayed, but not a huge issue, just one to be aware of. Overall the property is very comfortable with all amenities one would require for a lovely break away from home, and we certainly didn't want to leave.

Owner's Response: I am so glad you enjoyed your stay! We plan to add a privacy fence around the hot tub in the new year and will look into putting a sheer curtain on the master bedroom door. I am glad these things did not detract from your vacation.

Fantastic weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

A group of us (six adults) wanted to head north from Tampa for a long weekend to go scalloping for a couple of days. We came across this home during the search and I'm so very glad that we did. We had a wonderful time and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The owners were quick to respond to any questions we had throughout the booking process, and were also quick to respond to a question we had during our stay as well. The house is lovely and was the perfect size for us to enjoy the weekend. We spent our days going out on the boat (which was easily accessed at the dock across the street and in front of the house; the boat launch was also easy to find and is only 1.5 miles from the home), and our evenings cooking and relaxing in the house or on the patio. Only two days after leaving we were all messaging one another that we need to begin planning our trip for the following year.

Thank you very much. We loved it!

One tip for those staying - be sure to bring extra toilet tissue and garbage bags. This was our first time booking a home and assume it is common practice, but we hadn't thought of it at the time when we originally went grocery shopping.

wonderful and relaxing place! Get away from it all

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week at the Ocean Blue house. I can not say enough about how relaxing of a week it was. We have 3 children ages 9,14,17 and they were never bored. Plenty of outdoor activities and they discovered there was Netflix so when they wanted to cool off they could watch a movie. We did some Kayaking near by where there were several manatees that swam right under and Tarpon Springs was a fun day visit. Pine Island beach was close by. There is a canoe/life jackets at the house for use and at low tide you can go out quite a ways and look for shells and other creatures. We saw dolphins everyday, several manatees, couple of stingrays, horseshoe crabs and blue crabs. Fishing was great. My Husband loved the barb-b-q. We had wonderful fresh caught seafood everyday including crabs the boys caught with their fishing poles that were quite large. The house was very clean and I am a picky person when it comes to that! We were very comfortable while we were here and didn't want to leave! The sunset was beautiful every night and the view to wake up to was wonderful. We all feel very refreshed after a week there and would love to go back in the future.

Best Trip!

  • 5 of 5

I rented Ocean Blue, with 5 other girls this year for our spring break and it was absolutely amazing! The house has everything you will need! The views we spectacular, the hot tub was so fun to have on chilly nights and the furnishings and other amenities (our favorite was the iPod Dock and surround speakers) made for a great trip. The neighborhood is so cute and although not close to any beaches, this property made up for this! Thank you so much for housing us on our vacation ocean blue! We would definitely come back!
