For those of you that want to enjoy the wonderful sunny weather found all year round in Florida, swim in the warm seas of the Gulf Coast and possibly visit some of the many Theme Parks but don't want to rent in the overcrowded and commercial Orlando - then this is the place for you. 1 hour north of Tampa airport (Busch Gardens Theme Park) and 1hr 45 mins west of Orlando airport (Disney), this villa offers a quiet secluded holiday with amazing beaches and wildlife parks right on your doorstep. Beautifully furnished with a large pool and outdoor heated jacuzzi, you can enjoy your evenings sipping your wine by the BBQ, watch over 200 TV channels on 3 televisions or play X Box games/pool in the games room. The villa is set in a private community with security guards on the gate and has its own fantastic 18 hole golf course and Clubhouse, with facilities that include a 25 metre heated outdoor pool, gym, golf pro shop, fine dining restaurant and bar. The home is fully air-conditioned.
Hi. We bought a wonderful French Farmhouse over 24 years ago and have spent a lot of time effort and money on making it into a typical French Charentaise Farmhouse set in a beautiful quiet part of rural France. Please see FR 5502.
We have now bought a wonderful villa with pool on the west coast of Florida to add to our collection and are hoping that visitors can enjoy both homes, each individually different and set in superb locations. Please see F 1415.
Grraham Haycock purchased this villa in 2009
We bought this villa on the West, Gulf coast of Florida this year as we loved coming to Florida with the family, enjoying the Theme Parks and beaches, and of course the 365 day a year sunshine! We chose the Gulf coast, to get away from the hustle and bustle of busy, cosmopolitan, touristy Orlando and looked for a beautiful large home close to the beach in an area that is so much quieter and not commercialised. We found it here, in Weeki Wachee. Wonderful, friendly people with outstanding golf and swimming/beach activities for everyone.
Our home offers you the ability to quietly enjoy the pool, jacuzzi and wonderful sunshine on a quiet residential community with a wonderful Clubhouse, and the opportunity to explore the fantastic beaches, rivers, wildlife and nature all around you, on the same holiday. Not forgetting, for those of you that indulge and play a round of golf or two, make sure you try out the communities own superb 18 hole course.
"We had an excellent, relaxing holiday thank you very much.
We were very pleased with your home, it came well equipped with all you could ever need for a Floridian holiday. Weeki Wachee is very well located and very much a casual laid back southern area. We enjoyed fishing and travelling up to Homossassa Springs and Crystal Rivers, we took an airboat ride out to the Gulf which was excellent with all the wildlife and even the dolphins turned out to entertain us. Thank you very much for the loan of your property, it really was a beautiful home." Graham and Maureen Sinden March 2010.
"We had a wonderful holiday and really enjoyed staying in your lovely house. We managed to make ourselves feel very much at home (no difficulty there!) and were very sad to leave. The Glen Lakes estate is very impressive and we found everyone very friendly and helpful - we can certainly see why you decided to buy a property there. " Mr & Mrs Cornish - April 2010.
"Thank you for the use of your lovely,
Over the years we have rented a number of 3 bedroom villas in Florida and this one was right up there with best. In fact inside is probably the best we have seen.
My wife and I and our small house dog enjoyed this property and the owner's very gracious hospitality for a short stay this winter. We didn't want to leave when our time was up. The home, pool and spa are spacious, beautiful, well maintained and fully stocked with all needed extras. The Glen Lakes gated community is both private and friendly and the location is convenient to all services. We highly recommend this home to anyone. The owner was very helpful and provided more support than we expected. Thank you Graham. We truly enjoyed our stay.
Had a brilliant holiday staying in a wonderful Villa at Glen Lakes. The Villa is well appointed, clean and tidy and genuinely a home from home. Glen Lakes offers facilities, but it is ideally situated to make the most of the region and the beaches. Clearwater is approximately 1hr away with Tampa a little closer and Orlando 1.45hr. Would recommend for all the family, excellent.
We have just returned from our 10th trip in 9 years to Florida as a family of 5. In this time we have stopped in dozens of villas all over the state. This villa ranks as one of our favourites. It was our first visit to the Weeki Watchee area and will certainly be returning again. If you are considering this villa you will certainly not be disappointed. Well appointed and comfy inside with a super pool area.
Great on site golf course and a Publix just on your doorstep.
Weeki Watchee springs is just a 5 minute drive away and was a big hit
With our family.

The villa is a 10 min drive from beautiful sandy beaches and the warm waters of the Gulf coast. They are safe with golden sand and often have wild dolphins swimming very close to the beach. Alternatively there are a number of freshwater rivers (with the very rare Manatees) set in wildlife reservations ideal for canoeing/kayaking. The closest of which is only 1 mile away.
Tampa Airport is 1 hr drive away. Orlando Airport is 1hr 45 mins drive away. The use of a rental car is highly recommended during your stay.
Clearwater and Tampa beaches can be reached in an hour whilst Hudson Bay beach will take you 20 mins by car. All shops and amenities in Weeki Wachee or Spring Hill will take you 10 minutes by car.
Walmart, Winn Dixie, Publix superstores are all within 10 mins by car as are banks/ATMs, clothes shops and chemists. Numerous good quality restaurants such as Red Lobster and Outback can be found on Highway 19 - a 15 min drive from the villa. This highway also has many great bars offering very good value for money light meals and TV entertainment. An absolute must is to visit Pine Island beach (10 mins), Hudson Bay beach (20 mins) and to try out the kayaks on the Week Wachee river (5 mins). In our opinion (having visited them all!) the Busch Gardens Theme Park in Tampa (1 hr away) is the best Theme park for both adults and children alike. New in 2014 is a 50" HD TV, Blu Ray DVD player, surround sound system, new dishwasher,fridge/freezer and w/machine & drier. Jacuzzi now operates via new electronic remote control system.
