House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

You Found It, as there are no dissapointments here! Welcome to our vacation home with limitless opportunities to enjoy the River Life! Our stilt home has recently undergone a top-to-bottom renovation with no upgrade overlooked. You will appreciate the Cozy surroundings and an Exquisitley Decorated 2 Bedroom/1 Bath Home to enjoy nature, beaches, and the marina as we do! Relax in the family room surounded by Rich Leather Sofas and Hard Wood furniture and floors as you watch your favorite Movie or Root for your Favorite Team on the 47' HD TV and snuggling up to the Crackling warmth of the no-hassel Fireplace. Cook a Fabulous Meal in This Upgraded Kitchen with Granite Counters and maple cabinets---OR walk to dinner at The Upper Deck Restaraunt just down the street for Live music and great food almost every night of the week!

Bring Your Own Boat and tie up to our dock for easy acces to the River or the Gulf of Mexico for great fishing year around. Roger's Park boat ramp and public beach is only steps away! Conveniently located, the Marina is also only steps away from the house if you need to grab a gallon of milk, bag of chips, or ice---they also rent canoes and jon boats with 10hp motors for a modest fee. However, we do offer 2 single, and 1 double kayak for up to four people FREE OF CHARGE to our guests---this will save you a ton of money over a weekend! The river offers numerous opportuities for wildlife viewing with Manatees, Otters, Deer and Other Wildlife---or just do as I do and have a Wonderful Picnic on the River Bank and watch the world go by...

If your interests include more than just water sports or beach walking the area offers exceptioal golfing opportunities from World Wood Resort to Black Diamond G&CC a short drive away. Also, Around the Corner is the World Famous Weeki Wachee Mermaids and Buccaneer Bay Park. To Enjoy the Most Beautiful Sunsets, Drive to Bayport Boardwalk/Pine Island---about 10 minutes away to Catch Dolphins Playing in the Ocean as the Sun sets...Amazing!

Lovely getaway

  • 5 of 5

We are Floridians but wanted to get closer to nature. Maryann's place was perfect...right on the riverfront and scenic. She was in close touch to make sure everything went as planned. The house was sparkling clean and comfy. We really enjoyed kayaking right off the backyard dock. We would definitely come back!

Owner's Response: That is the Best part about Weeki Wachee...It is so close to us but yet it takes you so far away from reality. It is a great get away from the hustle and bustle of our busy lives. So glad you stayed our home and are thinking of returning one day. We welcome you into our Weeki Wachee Family and wait for your return.

Great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our family. It's in a great location, very clean, & has everything you need. Maryann made sure that we had everything we needed during our stay. Checking in & out was so easy & we will definitely be booking this house again. Oh & the back patio & dock was the best. It made kayaking and watching the manatees very enjoyable .

Owner's Response: So glad our home was a perfect fit for your family. We have always enjoyed that back porch up high where it gives you the advantage of seeing everything in the water. It is always a great day when you spot the turtles and manatees right in front of the house in the canal. I guess the manatees also like the peace and quiet that is offered at this spot. Looking forward to your return and welcome to Our Weeki Wachee family!

Very Relaxing Stay

  • 5 of 5

The description and previous reviews were spot on! The owners' were very attentive and responsive to all of our questions and needs. We saw manatees in the crystal clear river every day, the kids got great use out of the kayaks and enjoyed going to Rogers Park, which can be seen from the front door. Tying to boat to the floating dock made it a breeze to get to the Gulf. We highly recommend this house for a laid-back vacation.

Wonderful Get Away

  • 5 of 5

We went to Weeki Watchee to celebrate our Granddaughters Birthday. It was very hectic at their home. So, it was nice to go and relax. Everything we needed was at the house. Close to everything yet far away enough to get away. The house was adorable, we loved it. Can't wait to go back.

Thanks for becoming part of our Weeki Wachee Family.

Quiet & relaxing well appointed house next to everything!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed staying here - Perfect for a family of 4. Close enough to everything yet just far enough away to enjoy quiet nature - saw a manatee and her calf every day from the porch! Great location, within walking distance to restaurants/public park with playground and beach/swimming area also easy kayak to crystal clear Weeki Wachee River. House had everything we needed or wanted - including access to kayaks & tubes. Fire pit for a cozy evening sitting by the water. Just bring your clothes and enjoy a relaxing time on the Weeki Wachee.

Owner's Response: Yes, we have been very excited and lucky to be able to watch this calf and her Mama in our canal. Now is not the time for manatees to be in the river but these have chosen to stay behind and spend their days with us. It is amazing to be able to watch them from the dock and deck. I am so very glad you were able to watch them from such a close distance. We love where our place is located and so glad that you thought it was convenient as well. One can stay away from the hustle and bustle on US 19 and Cortez (Hwy50) but it is close enough if you miss(or need anythig) to go stores or entertainment. Glad you chose to stay at our place and we welcome you into our Weeki Wachee family. It was a pleasure meeting your family and hope you return one day..soon.

Manatee Lover

  • 5 of 5

We have spent four consecutive March's in Weeki Wachee. So it is evident that we have fallen in love with the area. Last three years we have stayed at Maryann and Phil's home. We keep coming back because we couldn't find nicer "landlords", who genuinely care about our comfort. The house has every thing you need to just move in. We love to kayak the river daily and swim with the manatees. Love meeting the tourists as well as the locals on the river. If you are needing a time of relaxing on the deck or dancing at the Upper Deck (which is within walking distance), this place has it!! We love the fresh seafood in the area. No shortages of restaurants and entertainment nearby. And don't forget Florida's second oldest attraction, the Mermaid Show a few miles away! Twenty miles north is Homosassa. Be sure to go there to the waterfront bars, see Monkey Island and eat at the Freezer after visiting the Homosassa Refuge. Educational, fun and affordable!! I can't say enough about this area it is nature lover's paradise. Watching the eagles, the cranes, cardinals, turtles, manatees and the fish flying right from your own dock!! Doesn't get better than this. We have travelled extensively in the state of Florida, Arizona, Italy, Greece, but we keep coming back to Weeki Wachee!! If you get a chance to go to Weeki we highly recommend staying at Maryann and Phil's River House!

Owner's Response: We love having you stay with us every March and I look forward to it every year. You truly know how to enjoy the Weeki Wachee area and it's surroundings. I have never seen anyone quite like are a Manatee Magnet and I truly enjoy kayaking with you and love to see your smile when we find the Manatees!!! Thank Goodness you are part of my Weeki Wachee Family. I cannot wait to see you and Mr. B again!
