About Lisa Gill

Permanent residents of Florida, who enjoy the Florida sunshine. Bought the property in Weeki Wachee to enjoy boating and fishing year round.

Lisa Gill purchased this House in 2007

Why Lisa Gill chose Spring Hill

We bought the property in Weeki Wachee due to its location away from it all. Waterfront property lends to a relaxing atmosphere. Love to sit on the dock, drink coffee and watch manatees and turtles swim by or fish jump out of the water all the way down the canal. When we are ready to go boating, we just step off our dock into our boat and we are on our way to explore the surrounding areas. Love to travel to Homosassa and visit Monkey Island or head south and visit New Port Richey and eat at Hooters or the Crab Shack on the water. There is a beautiful island with white sandy beaches just outside of New Port Richey that is a great place to dock the boat and have a picnic named Enclove Key.

What makes this House unique

Weeki Wachee is a natural spring river with water temperatures year round at 72 degrees. Manatees thrive in the river due to its warm winter temperatures. We even seen dolphins in the river. The water in the river is crystal clear and enjoyed by canoes, tubers, paddle boarders, kayakers and motorboats. Weeki Wachee is centrally located to visit other places by car or boat. Weeki Wachee park is world famous for seeing the live mermaids. Tarpon Springs is south and has a wonderful waterfront greek village with great food and world famous sponge docks. Homosassa has a wildlife park and many great places to eat on the water. Crystal river is just north of homosassa and is also a great place to visit and explore.

                                                      Cozy riverfront vacation

                                                      This home and vacation was great for the whole family! We had an amazing time whether we were swimming and fishing off the back doc, canoeing or boating on the river or out to the Gulf of Mexico to go swimming and scalloping, and for those days we wanted to veg out at the house there was plenty to do for the adults and kids....the house was stocked with games like a wii and soccer ball game or corn hole for the outdoors! They had wifi available which work very well and cable in all the rooms also. The house was very clean and decorated so cute! The kitchen was fully stocked with plenty of dishes and pots and pans and even a kerig.... And outdoors had a nice grill and set up for entertaining also....Very accomodating! We really enjoyed this peaceful, family fun escape from reality and look forward to coming back soon!

                                                      Nice and Convient

                                                      Matthew V.

                                                      We had a great time. The place was perfect for our family of four. The girls loved playing corn-hole underneath the house. The kitchen worked well and we were able to eat the majority of our meals at the house. Also, it was nice sitting, reading and having meals by the canal. We enjoyed putting our SUP boards right into the water directly behind the house. We had a great experience and our interactions with the owner were fantastic. I would recommend staying at this place.

                                                      Very comfortable and spacious home. Great outdoor spaces. Well appointed, everything you need.

                                                      Dianne L.

                                                      Weeki Wachee is a great place to visit, play and relax. This lovely home made our stay even better. We enjoyed the deck and dock. At night it was nice to relax in the spacious living room. We loved the very pretty bedroom and comfortable king size bed.

                                                      We had a blast

                                                      Stephen H.

                                                      We had an awesome time and Lisa was very helpful whenever we had questions. The property is in great shape and the actual river is close by. Great place for a get away!

                                                      The property was great!

                                                      Patricia J.Gloversville, NY

                                                      The house was very comfortable...especially the master bedroom bed! The area felt very safe and laid back....yet there were lots of things to do! We loved the fact that there were several reasonably-priced golf courses all within 25-30 minutes. The kayaks/canoe afford the opportunity to enjoy the manatees and the beautifully-clear water. We also loved Weeki Wachee wildlife park in Homosassa.

                                                      Only reason I didn’t give five stars....no fault of the property...just the area....internet service is extremely poor. Even tho WiFi was provided...it was very poor service. Also, no cell service at all. (we have AT&T).

                                                      Just ok.

                                                      Trailer on stilts, on Black,backwater canal. Limited WiFi . Fees to high,overpriced property.

                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                      I'm sorry you were not completely pleased with the accommodations. The property is exactly as it is listed. Because the canal does not have a white sand bottom and is covered in leaves, you are unable to see to the bottom like you can on the main river, but the water is clear. However, if you had the opportunity to read our guest books, you would see our guests have seen manatees in our canal quite frequently. Our rates are very competitive with the area. That may be one of the reasons you chose our property. As it is unusual for us to receive a review with less than 5 stars, I'm not sure what went wrong, but I hope you enjoyed your time in Weeki Wachee.
