About Bert Terwilliger

I grew up in Tampa so I already had a love for water.I came up to Weeki Wachee to visit friends and rented a cottage there.After a couple weekends there I became hooked on the natural beauty of the area and the water.

Bert Terwilliger purchased this house in 1997

Why Bert Terwilliger chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

I purchased this property as a weekend getaway from the hustle of the city.I could not wait for friday to head out to Weeki Wachee.

I have since moved up here and now live just five minutes away.Now I offer the place so others can enjoy the nature and beauty.

Great Spring Break with the Grandchildren

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay. Everyone enjoyed the river and the kayaks you provided for our stay. We came to see the Weeki Wachee State Park and we could not have picked a better place. You are just down the road. We will stay again soon hopefully.

Thanks Bert.

Pleased renter here with no complaints!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay! My family and I stayed here for a weekend getaway and had a blast!!! We brought a small john boat and a few of us used the provided kayaks as well. We saw manatees on the river and enjoyed a rum runner at the upper deck. Our evenings consisted of playing cards on the screened in porch. Overall very satisfied with our stay and would stay here again in a heartbeat! Thank you Bert!

Amazing location......

  • 5 of 5

Loved the property. Especially the amenities...hence the 3 kayaks and the canoe. The river was amazing. You can swim right off the dock or paddle down to the river where the water is crystal clear. Not to far to paddle up stream or down stream to decent locations. House big enough for the whole family. Only recommendation I have for others is bring your bug spray. :-) The river bugs are wicked.

Best vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was exactly what I was looking for. I went kayaking everyday with the manatees. I went to Homassa Springs and Charlie fish house in Crystal River. I went to Rogers Park and Pine Island Beach. My favorite place was a toss up between the back porch or deck. My dogs loved the place. For me seeing the manatees, kayaking with them every morning was a religious experience. Can't wait to go back

Great vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was the most relaxing vacation. Exactly what I was looking for. I went to Homossa Springs one day, then Crystal River the next to eat at Charlie's Fish House, they have the best oysters. I went out in the kayak every day and saw the manatees. The family of manages with the 2 month old baby went by and came right up to the landing. I was able to touch a older manatee on the way out to the river. I swam in the shallow area, and it was so refreshing. Hard to say what was my most favorite, the back porch or the deck. My dogs loved the place and we all enjoyed watching the jumping fish. I did not get to meet Bert but he answered all of my pre rental questions, I would not hesitate to recommend this place and can't wait to go back.

Beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed having a place that accepts dogs. Our pups had a blast. Apparently I have a swimmer, lol. We found the house to be easy to find/access, with all the comforts of home. Was actually surprised at the high end finishes. The bed was so comfortable we went to the mattress store on the way home. The kayaks were a welcome amenity, we paddled down the canal to the river and went down toward the swimming hole. Property is very private, with large yard and boat ramp. Will reserve again.
