Florida Central Gulf Coast House Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 10-12

We are happy to announce that our home is finished being renovated and remodeled! Everything in the house is brand new, from furniture to spoons.

60 minutes to Tampa and Clearwater 75 minutes to Orlando, you can enjoy all the amenities of big city life including, spectacular beaches, amusement parks, world class shopping and a bustling night life and then return to the picturesque town of Hernando Beach resting in Florida's nature coast, to enjoy the slow and relaxed pace that is Florida!

While here you can enjoy the small town feel, check out the numerous nature and wildlife preserves, walk along the white sandy beach of pine island, enjoy stunning sunsets and fish at the many local fish parks. Kayak or scuba dive with the manatee in the crystal clear Weeki Wachee Springs. Our house includes a brand new 16 ft. dock to tie boats or jetskis to. Bring your own or rent one from our local marinas minutes from our house. We are situated in a deep water canal with direct access to the gulf, where you can enjoy the world class fishing, including tarpon, and scalloping. Otherwise meander through the canals on the kayaks we provide and take in all the scenery you can handle.

Our house sleeps 12 very comfortably. Sliding doors on the upper deck fold back completely to enjoy the indoor/outdoor living.

From an in ground pool to cool off in to the 40 ft. deck over the water, just relax with a yummy drink, fish, or just take in the water view with visits from manatee to dolphins and ducks it is the perfect place to kick off your shoes, leave your worries behind and relax.

Hernando Beach is the perfect vacation or winter escape!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Kathy and David Moore's home. The place was furnished with everything we could need. We had plenty of room that many a time I had to ask where everyone was. My favorite spot to start the day was the screened deck on the upper floor. Drinking coffee, listening to the birds and watching the fish jump in the canal was a very nice way to start the day. With a deep sea fishing party boat and pontoon boat rentals near by and a trip to Weeki Wachee Spring State Park we kept the family busy. I would say that this was one of the more relaxing vacations I have had in years. RLM

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. As I write this response, I to am relaxing, drinking coffee on the upstairs screened in patio. This area is known for the wildlife and is a quiet little sea side village. And as stated our house is fully equipped, and very organized, making your stay even more relaxing.

We couldn’t have picked a better place to stay! Beautiful house, spectacular location!

  • 5 of 5

We want to let you know how wonderful it was to stay at your house.  We couldn’t have asked for a nicer house or location!  Everything was clean and comfortable, and there was plenty of room for the entire family.  Your suggestion for Tropical Grill was excellent.  I really enjoyed the Jack Daniels Rib Eye, it was delicious!  Becky Jack's Food Shack is another of our favorites. Quirky little place with amazing food and service! Having your book of menus and area attractions was very helpful! Pine Island is a short ride with beautiful sandy beaches and a great place to spend the day with the kids.

Having the kayaks available was a treat. We used them every day. It was only about a 30 minute paddle to the gulf!

We’d love to stay again next time we’re in Hernando Beach!!

Thanks again for helping make our family vacation a memorable one!

Owner's Response: We appreciate the wonderful review. We do take a lot of time keeping our welcome book updated with the best local eateries, which we only recommend if we have tried the place. We also take time to visit all the places we recommend as attractions. We want our guests to have the best vacations they can have weather that means resting by the pool, fishing of the dock, or enjoying the many things that Hernando Beach has to offer.

This property is everything advertised and much much more

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at this beautiful home for the entire month of February 2016. There were 4 adults and we had plenty of room for everyone. House and property is absolutely beautiful and has everything you need for a short or extended stay. Beds were very comfortable. Really enjoyed the pool deck and dock to watch when the dolphins came up into the canal. Used the kayaks several times and had a great time kayaking around the canals. Meet some of the neighbors and one took us all on his boat out into the gulf. Great time had by all. Highly recommend this property for your vacation. Area is very quiet but is only short drives to many area attractions and shopping. During our stay the DVD player wouldn't work. We called David and he ordered a new and had it delivered in a couple of days. We hooked it up and everything was perfect. This was all our first time spending an entire month in Florida and we could not have picked a better home to rent. Thanks David and Kathy for allowing us to stay at your beautiful home.

Owner's Response: You are so welcome. We love having people stay at our house who truly enjoy it. As you can see, we handle issues very quickly and can be reached 24/7. The house is exactly what we say it is so there are worries that you will not get exactly what you see. Also, we are happy to say, this couple so so inspired by the area, that they bought a home down here. It is so nice that others love this area as much as we do.

Great winter vacation!

  • 5 of 5

David and Kathy were wonderful to work with prior and during our rental. They answered emails immediately with detailed information. The house actually has five bedrooms, plus a finished room downstairs that has a pull-out couch. The house was very clean! We enjoyed sitting on the deck by the water as well as kayaking in the canals. The area is very low key, which was great for the middle-aged adults; however, we had six young adults that probably were bored at times. Although Clearwater is approx. 60 miles away, it took us more than two hours to get there due to the traffic, which the locals indicated is always a problem, not just during holidays. There were three great restaurants very close, within a mile, so people could walk if they liked to. We took our bikes and the neighborhood around the house was very safe riding, but longer rides were difficult because the main road did not have any shoulder and traffic was heavy. There are some bike routes away from the home, but we did not get to try them out. There is actually no beach in Hernando Beach, but we went to Sun West Park, within 10 miles, which is a new park that had a beach area and many things to do, kayaking, paddle board, an obstacle course, etc. Some of us went to Pine Island Beach Park, within 15 minutes, and that was very nice also. Really no need to go to other beach areas unless you are interested in the shopping. Overall, a great, relaxing place to go and if I visit Hernando Beach again, I will definitely rent this house!!!!

Owner's Response: Very good post, but I'm sure holidays had something to do with traffic. We have been coming to Hernando for years and it has never taken us longer than 60 minutes to get to Clearwater Beach. We didn't even know we had traffic in town 😀. So we will remember that if we ever get to enjoy time there on the holidays. We are so happy you enjoyed your time and look forward to having you back.

Our group of 12 stayed here for 3 nights very comfortably. We kayaked the Weeki Wachee River and it was amazing, and very close to this home. We are already talking about going back next year and would love to stay here again!

Owner's Response: We appreciate the kind review, our property is in a quite seaside town, but still close enough to lots of fun activities. We would love to have our clients come back anytime.
