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
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.
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.
This is the 2nd time I have stayed at this home with my husband and it was nothing but spectacular. We brought our boat to use for the 4 days we were staying to go fishing and we caught lots of fish! The home is nice and spacious, definitely room for us to bring friends the next time we visit. The area is nice and quiet with very friendly neighbors. Planning the visit was very easy thanks to the owners who were very helpful and organized. The home is very clean, I felt very comfortable using all of the equipment and kitchenware. We plan on coming back very soon as this has been our favorite VRBO vacation house.
Love the house very clean ! Kid friendly ! We will rent again!!!
Loved being right on the water just minutes from the river and gulf. We saw at least 2 manatees and lots of turtles right off the back dock everyday. The kids loved swinging off the rope swing and we all enjoyed the use of the kayaks and canoe. Can't wait to do it again next summer!
The cottage was perfect for our family group (three adults and two children). It was clean and well-maintained. The owner was very helpful as we prepared for the trip and also during the time that we were there. An important activity for us was to go to Dunedin to take in a few ball games. The distance is not long, but the traffic is slow. Otherwise, the cottage is well located for many activities, including kayaking on the canals and going to parks in the area.
We had a wonderful time! The house was gorgeous and spacious! the Patio was perfecct and soooo cute!
Home away from home for sure. Everything our family of 5 needed for a fabulous time.
The whole place was beautiful, the master bedroom was beautiful. The living area and kitchen were spacious, open feeling. The porch area underneath was open, had a bathroom and frig, bbq grille (uses charcoal only, no propane). Spent most of our time outside in that underneath porch area as the place is built on pillars and we had a lot of rain the entire time. The second bedroom full size bed was not the most comfortable for adults, would have been fine for teens or smaller children, but that is my only complaint. I couldn't find the tv remote for that 2nd bedroom, but if I really needed it, would have called the owner about it. We spent our time outdoors, kayaking and on a family boat as family rented a vacation home nearby. There were a lot of stairs to get to the living area but we didn't mind as we liked the underneath porch area/pillars with the convenient 1/2 bath and frig and the comfort of the sitting areas, swinging chairs, dock/water :)
