ENJOY-PRIVATE SCREENED LANAI, HEATED POOL & DOCK ON THE GULF

Hernando Beach House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 6

Hernando Beach is a rural, residential Gulf Coast town with world class fishing. The area is famous as Tarpon Country-but there’s grouper, snapper, snook, and redfish, too). Nature and wildlife preserves surround Hernando Beach. The beautiful sunsets, white sand beach of Pine Island, numerous fishing parks and the nearby Weeki Wachee Springs Water Park make it an ideal vacation or winter retreat. Enjoy fine dining in the town’s local establishments (seafood like you have only dreamed about!) or in the national restaurant chains nearby on US 19. Convenient shopping also abounds on US 19. A new Super Walmart is 10-minutes from your front door.

The home is located 60+ minutes from Tampa International Airport, and 90+ minutes from Orlando, Disney World, Universal Studios, Wet & Wild, Sea World and Busch Gardens. So you can still 'do it all' and have a quiet, clean, comfortable home when it is time to unwind. After all what is a vacation if you don't relax some?

Location, Location, Location!: The family room, kitchen, master bedroom, Dining Area, Screened Lanai & Pool, outdoor entertaining areas, sea wall and dock all offer views of the main channel that leads directly into the Gulf of Mexico. You can enjoy your favorite water sport from your own dock. In the evening and morning can watch the shrimp boats come and go. Or you can stand in the heated pool enjoying your favorite beverage watching the boats leaving for the flats or gulf. Bring your boat and follow them out as you go out to see the beautiful sunset on the Gulf of Mexico. You can charter a fishing boat for guided inshore and offshore adventures from the nearby marina, venture offshore for grouper fishing on a party boat, rent a boat, pontoon boat or kayak locally. You will have a 20 foot floating dock right outside the back door. You can also fish off the dock (all kinds of fish come through the channel with the change of tides), or just relax on the back deck and enjoy the slow pace of Florida living.

Everything you could want is close!: If you enjoy people watching you will enjoy sitting on the outside deck at one of the local restaurants watching the boats, kayaks, canoes, boats, fish and in the winter Manatees going past on the crystal clear Weeki Wachee River while you enjoy lunch, dinner or your favorite beverage. All of this is 10 minutes from your front door. If your a beach person your going to love Pine Island Beach. If you have never been standing in the water and seen a Manatee swim past your going to love Rogers Park and the 72 degree temperature water.... it is 72 degrees all year!!!

For a change of pace, there are numerous golf courses nearby, including some championship courses. Two of our local public courses are rated 9th & 48th in the country. With over 20 to choose from you will be busy if you’re a golfer. If you want to visit Florida, especially if you want to escape the long, cold Northern winter - and stay in a countryside, waterfront, but convenient location...this is the place to be.

Well furnished and comfortable!: The home has a premium king size bed in the master bedroom and sliding glass doors that open to the Lanai and pool.

Each of the two other bedrooms have two twin beds. Both bathrooms have large walk in showers. The laundry room has a washer & dryer & a water view too!

There are two large flat panel LED HD TV's (one in the family room and one in the master bedroom) each with a DVD player. The family room also has a stereo with JBL speakers and there is an additional stereo on the lanai for your enjoyment while relaxing in the pool, rear deck or on the covered & screened lanai.

The kitchen also has large sliding glass doors that open to the 30 x 13 Lanai and screened solar heated pool. On the deck outside the screened pool and dining room, just below a very large palm tree is a Tiki Hut Bar with sink and seating for 6. It is a very popular place at sunset. There is also a table and chairs and a stainless steel LP Gas BBQ with side burner & flat grill.

I discovered Hernando Beach in 2000. Purchased a 'weekend/retirement' home and started to spend weekends. Weekends went from 2-3 day to 4 and I wondered why I was going back inland to Orlando... so I moved and for years have lived in this very wonderful waterfront community..a place you can relax!!!

I love the water I am a boater. I love quiet when you can hear an Owl at night or your own heat beating.

Like seafood? Oh, do we have seafood and do I love seafood!

Cook it yourself as we have a great local seafood market... beyond fresh or ask me and I will tell

you where you can get a 5-star meal at

a great local place for a 2-star price. We had a Chef from a major NYC restaurant rent our home for a week. He was blown away by the local restaurants and how 'cheap' (as he put it) the food was.... he has come back several times just to enjoy the cuisine! Remember this guy is a PRO, was on Food Network..

John West, Sr. purchased this house in 2011

This home is next to our other rental home so it works great for family vacations where there are as many as 12 people involved. Have a big group, let us know we can help you unless it is more than 12. The location is super, every boat launched at the boat ramp goes past the home as do the commercial shrimp and crab fleet. Talk about fun to watch... on the weekends it is non stop.

You can stand in the pool, have a beverage (plastic or metal only! No Glass!!) and watch the boats go past while you watch our sunsets.... ask me and I will send you sunset photo's like you have never seen!

Bring your water toys, boat, jet ski, waverunner, surf board, Kayak, Canoe, etc. We have a dock and a water craft dock too!!! A place to store the trailer and lots of parking.

Hernando Beach is unique in that it is one of the few places on the gulf coast that has a commercial fishing fleet. Most other locations they are gone, priced out of their dockage and told to leave due to the noise and smells that come with commercial fishing. This is old Florida in many ways….a place where you can park your work truck in the driveway with a sign on it and no one cares. No condo association to tell you “don’t park your boat trailer in your driveway”. Call it freedom, no not all of it is “pretty” but the people here are real they wave to you and mean “hi”, need help or anything just ask a neighbor, we don’t have crime like the city and those of us that live here feel it is our place. I am a water person, boater and know what is important to me… this is my kind of place. Once you come here, trust me you will be back!

We were in the area for business/vacation. Our ONLY REGRETS were that we couldn't extend the "vacation" part. What you see and read is what you get and MORE. The "home" is clean and open in floor plan. It is stocked with all the necessities to "stay home" or venture out. Due to business demands we were there mostly in the late afternoon and evenings. It was the PERFECT PLACE to relax. We cooked/grilled most of our evening meals and they truly tasted better out by the pool with the nice breeze and the parade of shrimp boats heading out for their nightly catch, as well as smaller fishing boats and "evening boaters". We spent lots of time sitting on the dock in the evenings and all the passers-by shared a friendly wave or hello. Our 9 year old grandson loved the pool (as did we) and even loved his nightly fishing from the dock even more. He caught several fish and even a few very large crabs. His excitement alone made memories. The sunsets were a perfect end to our days. This house may be called a "Vacation Beach House", but it is so much more. It is a "HOME" -- cozy, comfortable,relaxing and holds many fun memories. Needless to say we LOVED OUR STAY and wouldn't hesitate for a moment to return if the opportunity comes again. Thanks so much to the owners for providing this setting for a "HOME" away from home with a "sprinkling" of "extra specials" for a very fun week.

We loved our stay at this rental property. The owners were very nice and easy to work with. The property was very clean and comfortable and had everything we needed to enjoy our stay including a pool and boat dock. Enjoyed road trips to Hormosa Springs, The Sponge Docks at Tarpon Springs and rafting nearby. Great restrurants, Italian, Seafood, and American all very close. Plenty of shopping a short distance away. Would definitely recommend.

Our trip to Hernando Beach was memorable! The home was very confortable, the pool was great, we used the dock daily taking trips scalloping and fishing. The boat ramp is 5 minutes away by boat or car. Definitely will recommend this home to anyone.

Owner's Response: I had to smile when I saw the part of your review about "the BBQ worked!!!" Anne and I just rented a time share condo for a week in Gulfport, MS and as luck would have it the BBQ did not work... I had to go to Walmart and buy one so we could grill.

We try to do all we can to assure you and all our guest are comfortable and have a very enjoyable time in Hernando Beach. We must be doing something right, our return rate is over 40%!

Thanks again.

Excellent time, quiet, clean and well appointed waterfront home

We just got back from our two week stay in this home. It was exactly as described. Everything worked, was clean and in good shape and the owner was very accommodating. The house is on the canal leading straight out to the Gulf. We fished off of the dock behind the house, and fished some more at local fishing piers. Our young children had a great time. We only went one day to Disney. The rest of our trips were either local or over to Clearwater. Top 2 things not to miss when you go: 1. Rent a canoe at Weeki Wachee park and canoe one-way down the river. 2. Rent a pontoon boat if you don't have a boat and go out to the 'flats' to swim, fish and unwind (we were surrounded by dolphins at the end of our trip!) (Sterling Marina is the only place that rents them and they are 3 mins away). Weeki Wachee Park is also a fun and cheap way to spend a day. You will have a great time and be able to relax and unwind. The pool is beautiful and our kids spent some time in it almost every day. There is also fishing rods and tackle if you don't have your own. I brought my own tackle, and also stocked up locally (and left a bunch there too).
Hernando Beach is a very quiet and safe waterfront community. We would love to return one day and do it all again. A+

Owner's Response: I smile when I read a review like yours..... I cannot tell you how many times our guests arrive with the goal of using the home as a base and go to the theme parks in Orlando and Tampa.... most of the time they find out, as you did, all there is to do that is so much more fun, cost less and is unique... they may still go see Micky Mouse one day, but most spend their time local. I like you would rather end my day surrounded by Dolphins watching the sunset...

Thanks, Please come back soon!

Golf: Hernando County is home to more than 20 Golf courses that are open to public play. That does not count the private clubs. The most famous is World Woods in Brooksville, FL. World Woods is a very highly rated 36-hole course and is open to the public. It does not get much better than this: http://www.worldwoods.com/. In addition you can play at; The Heather Golf & Country Club, Dunes Golf At Seville, Brooksville Country Club, Sherman Hills, Spring Hill Golf Club, Seven Hills Golf Course, Rivard Golf & Country Club, etc.

If golf is your game, you will not lack for variety or something new. As always it pays to book a tee time well in advance. Not only can you get discounts, but if you don't mind last minute deals...they can be great. Just go to Golfnow.com and see discounts up to 70%.

We have a list of web sites you can go to as well as the details of all the clubs open to play in the area. Just ask.

Notes:
For the boaters!!!: The 8x20 Floating dock so if you have one bring the boat with you!! Power & Water are available at the sea wall so clean up of your boat after a day of fishing is easy. In addition to the table (with seating for 4) in the lanai an additional table with seating for 4 is located on the rear patio next to the grill. The entire back yard is elevated and covered with brick pavers. There is parking for motor homes, large boat trailers on the adjacent lot so parking is never a problem. The Area: The home is located 10-minutes from the Weeki Wachee Springs and the Weeki Wachee Water Park. Canoe and Kayak rentals are available at the Weeki Wachee Water Park as well as two other locations on the river. The Weeki Wachee River is a State of Florida park. The river is crystal clear and in the low 70's year round. It is a pristine Florida river. During the winter large numbers of Manatee stay the season.
