About Bryan Whitelaw

My wife & I live and work in Scotland. We bought this villa last year as a potential retirement home and as such have furnished it to a standard that we would enjoy in our primary home in Scotland. We are regular visitors to the villa and consider it a second home and not just somewhere we rent out. We love the area and the 'Old Florida ' feel . The wildlife views and general nature coast is stunning and we find new places to explore every time we visit. We hope that you will enjoy the villa and area as much as we do.

Bryan Whitelaw purchased this house in 2011

Why Bryan Whitelaw chose Florida

We have been coming to Florida since the 1980's and it was always our dream to one day live here. Having travelled all over the state from the panhandle to the keys we found that Weeki Wachee has solitude enough to provide quiet and relaxation but is close enough to Tampa

for ease of travel and cultural experiences. There is so much to do in the area that it could never be boring yet the tranquility is so awe inspiring that you will want to return time and again just like us.

What makes this house unique

The house is one of only a few available in the area with its own private swimming pool. Although swimming in the river is good fun the pool is far more comfortable and safe for guests to keep an eye on children. The local bar restaurant is a short walk away or if you brought the boat a 10 minute boat ride from the dock right to the dock of the Upper Deck. Live music and friendly locals make this a must visit experience. The manatees swimming past the dock is also a magical experience and an every day occasion.

Nearby Hernando Beach has a good selection of bars and restaurants. Day trips to Busch Gardens in Tampa or the Dali Museum and International Mall are all but an hours drive away.Further north is Crystal River and Homosassa with a selection of attractions such as monkey island and Neon Leons Zydeco bar and restaurant .

Guestbook comments from the manager

Stayed at the house here as guests of the owners and found the location to be idyllic and the home amazing. Right on the river Gulf access and a lovely heated pool and hot tub. Christmas dinner on the balcony was the best I have ever experienced. For a perfect family vacation you can't rent better in the area.

Peaceful relaxing time over the holidays.

Perfect family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Three Palms Villa is the perfect vacation getaway. The house is beautiful. The location is gorgeous. The location has a traditional Florida feel (lush and tropical) and is located directly on the Weechi Wachee waterway, where you can canoe, kayak, watch manatee, see otters, etc. The pool is wonderful to play around in or just relax. Our family enjoyed dining al fresco on the enclosed balcony (we never actually ate at the dining table in the house). One of the best vacations our family has had!

Amazing House!! Beautiful location!!

  • 5 of 5

The property was great- nice and quiet. Very relaxing being tucked away from the hustle and bustle of life with shopping just 10-15 minutes away. The home was beautiful, very open and bright. The screened in balcony was the best! Well equipped with everything needed time have a great time. Pool/Hot Tub area beautiful, Kayaks -the views from the water are truly stunning. The only con was being too far away from mile long white sand beaches. Overall, I would recommend this home for sure! 

lovely pool and amenities

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed a week long stay in March with our two girls. The pictures of the outside of the house are a bit deceiving - we didn't recognize it at first. It must have been a wide camera lense that gave a more grand feeling to the outside. But overall it is a lovely house with everything you need. Most basic shopping is 15 minutes away with bigger stores 30+ mins. Definitely great if you want to get away from it all!

Pros: kayaks, pool table, washer/dryer, well-equipped kitchen, screened in porch was awesome (bring some bug spray!) and we enjoyed dinners out there most nights, pool water was kept nice and warm, great area to kayak around, BBQ seemed to only take brickets (thought there was a propane hook up but couldn't find it - we managed and enjoyed steak on a huge grill

Cons: ice maker was broken, couldn't get the guest shower to work), enough hot water for 1 and a bit showers, landscaping needs some TLC, pool cover is getting older so it would leave little blue plastic circles in the water - which creeped the kids out, some of the pillows could use replacing (but beds were comfy)

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed the vacation at my house . The outside photo was taken from a drone so it is an ariel photo . I have had the property managers check out the ice maker which was not broken but full the ice needs emptied from the hopper if it has not been used or else the cubes stick together and won't come down the chute. The shower in the guest area works too if you pull the faucet handle towards you. I have had the water tank and boiler checked and all is in working order so we are a bit puzzled about the comment regarding hot water. The pool cover is replaced annually and due imminently .
