Weeki Wachee Gardens Mobile Home Rental Photos and Description

Mobile Home, 2 Bedrooms, den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5)

I have loved the Weeki Wachee River since I was a child and quickly became enamored with the crystal clear water and the peaceful but friendly enviornment the river provides.Enjoy the charm of old Florida in a quiet surrounding while you boat, kayak, canoe, tube, swim or just relax on the screened porch or deck.

I have always wanted a weekend home on this river which is why we purchased this property. It is a comfortable retreat for us, our family and friends, sharing our home with you allows us to continue our enjoyment of this incredible spring fed river. We take pride in providing you with a clean, efficient and enjoyable rental. Florida has over 700 spring fed rivers, this is one that you must experience.

What makes this mobile home unique

Central heat and air, interior laundry room, 2 full baths, living room is separate from bedrooms allowing privacy. Restaurants within walking distance.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I have been going to Weeki Wachee for over 25 years and this rental house is a perfect location on the river. It has a deep water canal so at any tide my boat has no problem getting in or going out. The boat ramp is a 10 min ride by boat from the ramp to the house. There are many manatees that you can see almost around every bend in the river. The house itself is very comfortable and charming. This is a great place to just relax and enjoy true Florida. My family and I are so glad we were able to find this vacation spot. The only bad thing is the kids will keep bugging you about when they can they go back. Good problem to have. :-)

Older, but Nice River Getaway

  • 4 of 5

The location was great; right on the water! We brought our canoes/kayaks & had a great time on the river. The house was roomy enough for the 6 of us, plus we had some other family up for a picnic during the day. The oven/stove stopped working but we improvised and used the grill and microwave to finish everything up. I wasn't expecting the layout to be the way it was. It was nice to have 2 bathrooms, but the 2nd bedroom was only separated from the little den area by a partial wall/hutch like structure. All in all it was a cute, older home with the amenities we needed. The owner was awesome; very efficient in giving us information and answering our questions when we called. We're looking forward to another trip up to the river soon!

Owner's Response: Susan, Thank you for the phone call regarding the stove. I met with an electrician the next day and determined it was the breaker. So pleased you enjoyed yourselves and thank you for the review.

Nice place to stay in Weeki Wachee

  • 4 of 5

This property was spacious and had all the amenities we needed to have a great weekend of scalloping and paddling the river. Location is conveniently located near the Italian Restaurant and the convenience store. The canal is just a few twists and turns from the main river. Close enough to everything you want to do and far enough away from the main river that you don't have to worry about your boat.

Very cool place.

  • 4 of 5

We had wonderful anniversary weekend here. Brought the kayaks and Jon boat with us. What a beautiful river, crystal clear with lots of fish and manatees. We attempted to drop in at the head spring and do the paddle trip on Saturday morning.... Let me warn you, get there early. We were turned around at 10:20 a.m. due to the parking lot being full so we got in the Jon boat and went scalloping. We returned later and motored up the river after the crowds were gone in the afternoon and really enjoyed it. Overall a great place to see. When I do it again it will be during the weekdays due to the weekend crowds. The house was very comfortable and clean. Thanks for having us Linda!!

Owner's Response: Darren, it was a pleasure having you as my guests and I'm so pleased you enjoyed your Anniversary. The river is no longer a secret; you may want to visit again "off season" and enjoy the 3 hour paddle on the river, it's incredible.

Wonderful family weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We had a family weekend here and I couldn't have been happier, it's cozy, quiet and we saw so much wildlife!

Linda was so friendly and helpful to us & our needs.

We also liked how close it is to everything you need or want. Yet felt away from it all.

We arrived to find a smelly, cockroach-infested, filthy, unsafe dump. We spent an entire month deep-cleaning, including carpets, windows, walls, there was SO much dust on every surface we could not breathe, had to buy an air cleaner and replace all filters in air conditioner, furnace and water line, had to put batteries in smoke detectors, had to deal with pest control twice as the place was overrun with cockroaches, and then had to clean the feces out of every cupboard and drawer . The outside lights did not work on front and back porches and in 2 bedrooms. The stove was sparking and none of the burners worked properly. The A/C quit when it was 90 degrees out. The place stunk, we had to move furniture to edge and vacuum for the carpet cleaner and then move it all back, and the water extracted was black and stunk to high heaven. The outlet on the deck is not GFI and is mounted on a rotten piece of wood. I could go on and on, but we rented a VACATION rental, we did not expect to work on someone else's property nor did we expect to be treated like dirt by this owner. We asked for our money back but she refused, and now, while we are still here, she has informed us she is selling it and now we have to out up with constant intrusions while potential buyers parade through our privacy. The photos are and descriptions are FALSE- this is NOT a 3-bedroom unit. There is 1 true bedroom that has a door that closes (the closet doors are off the broken tracks and we are not fixing that too). The 2nd and 3rd so-called bedrooms is actually 1 big room with a bookcase that doesn't even reach the ceiling dividing the 2 beds. You can see one bed while lying in the other, there is absolutely no privacy and the door to the back porch requires that you walk right in between both beds. The place is not maintained, the shed, and laundry room and garage were just as filthy as the house. The furniture in the living room is very old and uncomfortable, and one chair was so disgusting we had to out it in the garage. The TV's are about 30 years old and do not pick up HD channels, so we had to go buy our own. This was an absolutely terrible experience. I am sure she will reply with paragraphs of excuses, as she has done with prior bad reviews. I have photographs to show all of my claims and would be happy to share them with anyone interested in renting. Of course, now, it is clean, organized and repaired!

Owner's Response: I have owned and rented this property for 9 years and have never had any complaints. All interior photos are current and there is no deceptive description on this property. Exterior photos show an older dock which was replaced in September, 2015. I believe one would consider that an improvement. The website's summary portion of the Property Description clearly states that it is a 2 bedroom, 2 bath mobile home and that their is a Studio with a twin bed . This discription has been in place since I started using this website 3 years ago. When the tenant informed me that the grill had rusted, I provided a brand new $189.00 grill the next day and have addressed every other concern. When they informed me that the front and rear porch light did not work, I had an electrician there within 2 hours. They informed me 13 days after their arrival, that the stove does not work properly. I had a brand new stove, delivered without inspecting their claim on the existing one. Perhaps I should have inspected the old one before spending close to $500.00 in providing a new stove. I have responded to these renters requests and needs in a timely manner and even upgraded the cable service at my cost. I have made exceptions to my rental agreement for this tenant and even accommodated their request to check in a month early! There are some people that are never satisfied no matter what you do! This is all very discouraging as a property owner and landlord that has had returning customers every year.

Located minutes from Weeki Wachee State Park, home of the live mermaids and Bucaneer Bay water park. Kayak from the head springs and experience pristine waterways, view manatees swimming the river, large fish, deer and birds. Fabulous areas to swim, cool off and simply embrace nature. Walking distance to Roger's State Park, a local fresh water park with boat launch, beach, pavillion, kayak and canoe rentals and the Upper Deck Waterfront Restaurant.

Pine Island is nearby, located on the Gulf of Mexico and offers a Big Dock fishing pier.
