Two bedroom, two bath home directly on the crystal clear, spring fed Weeki Wachee River. Watch boats, kayaks, canoes, manatees and fish cruise by just feet from the house. Nature is at your doorstep, literally.
Catch a crab dinner from the dock. (traps provided). Weeki Wachee is famous for calm relaxing canoe and kayak trips down the current of the river to the Gulf of Mexico. Motor boats are allowed only at slow speed on the entire river, so no boats screaming by. You can swim or float just off the steps in 72 degree water all winter long.
Across from a state wildlife sanctuary, no neighbors across the river, except Otters, Herons, Ibis, Ducks, and other critters.
Rental includes use of 16 foot pontoon boat with quiet Honda 4-cycle motor. If you prefer to bring your own boat, you can use the dock to keep it in the water. We have one kayak for use in the river.
Pets are welcome, front and side yards all fenced for dogs. Dogs love boats. There are sandy beaches along the river to stop and let your dogs swim.
Screened porch for relaxing, as well as covered outdoor kitchen area right at the water’s edge. Single car attached garage. Completely remodeled in 2007, all new kitchen, appliances, and furniture. Wood and tile floors throughout. Exceptionally clean and easy to keep clean. Completely furnished with linens, towels, kitchen utensils, a real cook’s kitchen or you can eat out at one of many nearby restaurants. Just bring your suitcase.
Don’t come here for the technology -- but we have LCD digital cable TV, high-speed wireless internet, and digital nationwide phone service.
There are endless places to go on day trips, less than an hour from Tampa and an hour and a half to Orlando attractions. Locally there is golf, fishing, birding trails, nature walks, diving, and the one-of-a-kind award winning Homosassa Springs State Park-not to be missed. It is the only educational State Wildlife Park in Florida, with a 'Fishbowl' you can watch the fish and manatees in the springs of the Homosassa River head waters from under the water, and not get wet.
