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
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.
We enjoyed our two nights here. Didn't spend a lot of time on the property -- we were in the area for a family reunion, so mostly this was just a place to shower and sleep, but it was comfortable with plenty of room for five adults. Enjoyed sitting at the dock on the canal in the evening and listening to the fish jump. Neighborhood was quiet, and the unit was clean. We didn't have time to try the kayaks, but did see others out on the water.
Cell service in the area is terrible, which may be a good thing, depending upon your reason for being here. There was Wifi, which worked like a champ. There is a washer and dryer, which I don't recall being mentioned in the description.
Communication with the owner was smooth and timely.
This house is in the perfect spot for the Weeki. You can kayak up to the head spring or go down to Rogers park or the gulf. The house was very clean and the beds were comfortable. Our group of 6 spend a lot of time out relaxing on the dock after a long day of kayaking. The use of the 3 kayaks on the property were a big plus. (It meant we only had to bring 3 with us.) If you are looking for a relaxing vacation to get away from it all this is great for that. I would definitely recommend this house. I hope to stay again in the future.
We really enjoyed our stay. Spent lots of time kayaking, sitting on the dock and screened in porch. We saw several manatees. A few came right up to the dock. Lots of reasonably priced things to do close by. Nice, quiet area.
Excellent place fishing, swimming boating all in one. So peaceful and,quiet. Couldn't ask for anything more.
This house suited our needs very well. It was very clean when we arrived and Bert, the owner, was available for any questions. The one minor problem we had was quickly and easily remedied. To have our feline companion who travels with us welcomed was a major plus for us. We cooked most meals there and had enough of everything we needed. We were so pleased that manatees came right up to the dock and using the canoe or kayak afforded us opportunity to see more manatees in a location nearby. One kayak could use foot braces but my husband was able to use it and did so almost daily. The neighborhood has very pleasant neighbors and we met several couples that had our same interests. Pleased with our stay and would recommend to others.
The location was perfect for me and my husband, right on a canal off the river. We had an amazing experience paddling out to Hospital Hole as the sun came up. The river was quiet, peaceful and we were able to paddle along with seven manatees there (two babies!). We spent about an hour there by ourselves, such a fun experience. We paddled out another time and checked out a restaurant on the river. There are a lot of restaurant options within 10-15 minutes away. The house was ok and could probably use some updates and more comfortable, newer living room furniture. The bed was comfortable and the sheets were super nice. We were a little turned off by the neighborhood at first but ended up being very quiet and relaxing.
