About Liz

I bought this house from my mother who bought it from my grandmother, who originally purchased the property in the 1960's. This is a special place and I am determined to keep Weeki Wachee an important part of our family for generations to come. We love this house and the location and hope you do too!

Why Liz chose Florida

There is no better way to enjoy the 'real Florida' than to spend some time at a place like this! Forget Disney, this is what Florida is all about! It is a beautiful stilt house that has all the modern amenities you want while on vacation.

What makes this house unique

Swim in a crystal clear, spring fed river right in the back yard.

Wonderful Property!

  • 5 of 5

We were so fortunate to be able to spend the Month of July in this serene setting located right on the main river, which is crystal clear with a sandy bottom. Everyday we ended the day sitting in chairs on the seawall watching the manatees. The house is very well maintained and equipped with everything you need. Nice seawall and ramp to access kayaks/canoes or even a boat. We would highly recommend this property to anyone wanting to get away, kick back and enjoy river life.

You can swim right off the sea wall in front of the house and enjoy all a fresh water river has to offer. In addition, the fabulous waterpark, Buccanneer Bay, sits at the top of the Weeki Wachee River. There is also Weeki Wachee Springs State Park with their mermaid show, scenic boat rides and more. They also offer kayak, paddle board and motor boat rentals so you can explore the river on your own. Beautiful sunsets can be enjoyed at Bayport Park pier, where you can also salt water fish.
