View manatees in the clear water that flows past our property while you swim, canoe, kayak, or boat around our home. In about a 10 minute boat ride you can be in the Gulf of Mexico. Choose an island of your choice just off the coast to picnic and watch the sun set. Get a work out by taking a canoe or kayak trip up the Weeki Wachee River, then relax as the current brings you back home. Enjoy up close and personal many of our local birds, fish, and tropical plants in a quiet and relaxed setting.
The property itself is on a quiet corner lot at the end of Tuscawilla Drive. Clear spring fed water flows by two sides of the property. It is exciting to look below the surface of the water and watch a 8' wide blue crab feed on the bottom. Watch the snook, sheephead, and mullet swim by regularly. The manatee love the spring just 200 feet past our home. Enjoy the shade of a large Florida Oak, the beauty of flowered azalea bushes, and lots of flowering plants. You can enjoy a gentle Gulf breeze while standing on the deck of the modular home built on stilts. Bring your boat, jet ski, canoe, kayak and tie up to our boat dock. Bring your fishing poles. Or bring your puzzles. Enjoy and Relax!!!
Close by is Weeki Wachee Spring and the live Mermaid show. Pine Island provides a public Gulf Beach area for picnicing and swimming. Watch the dolphins play while you walk out 1/4 mile and still only be waist to chest deep in water. Go south to Tampa for the activities there or head due east about a two hour drive to Disney and Orlando.
Locally, you can find a variety of restaurants and shopping centers. Everything that you need can be found within six miles from your furnished home.

Owner is great to work with. Weeki Wachee is always a blast. House is dated but it has river access and enough room to accommodate. Grill worked and there is a large concrete area beneath the home but Bring your own chairs. Owner made the whole experience easy and quick.
Owner great to work with...everything we needed......except..........no WIFI or cell service
Boated from Rogers Park and dock/unloaded at the house. This is my 2nd stay there. Excellent as always. Manatee were in the canal. Very clean house and games for the kids.
A few couples wanted to get away from the kids, celebrate a birthday and an anniversary for a few days. WE had a BLAST! Honestly, it was more fun than you cn imagine. WE boated all day and laughed all night in this secluded little tree top house :) Saw a baby manatee and momma on the river, and cruised to the gulf for a sunset too.
After reading all the previous reviews and actually staying here for two wonderful months
I can only agree with all the great reviews written before me. This really felt like a home away from home with many more extras. There was always something to do and the comfort, the view, not to mention warm weather! There was no greater host than David the owner. It was a real pleasure meeting him and he helped in every way possible. We're already excited about returning next year for another great stay. If your looking for a great home to rent in this area this is a real find.
