Hernando Beach House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom With Ocean Views

Situated directly on the Gulf of Mexico, this 3 bedroom 2 bath home offers magnificent views from every window.

Imagine sitting on the back deck watching the sun set as dolphins, manatees and schools of fish play in the backyard, then waking up and having coffee on the front porch watching the sunrise over Dolphin Bay. The home has recently been remodeled and features a spacious kitchen with granite counter tops, a huge master bedroom with private deck and sitting room, and an upstairs kitchenette. There is a hot tub, canoe, and a private dock if you decide to bring your boat. The house is fully furnished and can sleep 8 with two king beds, a bunk bed and two large sofas. The area is perfect for fishing, boating, and relaxing in the sun.

This house is paradise for the whole family.

About Michelle Elferdink

We are true Floridians, born and raised. I am now an airline pilot living in Dubai. Having traveled the world, lived all over the United States and internationally, we call Hernando Beach HOME! We love it there!

Michelle Elferdink purchased this house in 2009

Why Michelle Elferdink chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

My family has owned a house in the community since 1979 and we loved spending weekends there! When this property became available, we jumped on the opportunity and have spent the last 4 years refurbishing the home.

What makes this house unique

I believe this to be the best positioned property in the community with the easterly sunrise over Dolphins Bay and the westerly sunset over the Gulf of Mexico! With fishing and swimming just out the door.

Less than 2 miles to some of the best restaurants in Florida, along with pubs and dockside tiki bars. 10 minute drive to Publix grocery, a super Walmart, movie theater, bowling alley, etc, etc, etc.


Wonderful! 4.9/5 -

Paradise in Hernando Beach

  • 4 of 5

The house was great! We had a large group come down for a family wedding, the house worked perfect. We had a bonfire almost every night.

Watched the dolphins swim in front of the house. Had beautiful sunsets!

A great place to stay.

p.s. The house is not stocked with toilet paper or paper towel so plan accordingly.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay! We normally do have TP and paper towels so don't know what went wrong with the cleaners. I will talk with them. Thank you for letting me know. We would love to have you back if you are ever in the neighborhood.

Amazing, relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our week immensely! My husband and I were looking for a quiet, relaxing get-away and our stay here was just that! The home was very comfortable and the view cannot be matched. It was difficult to leave after such a fabulous week!

All that and then some!

Total relaxation. The owners have thought of everything. The location was perfect for peace and quiet and nature lovers. Any kind of shopping and restaurants were close but far enough away that the location didnt feel "commercial". We spent most of our time at the home because it was so comfortable and why leave when we could enjoy nature from the hot tub. Many parks close by to enjoy birds, including eagles, manatees, and other critters. We saw dolphins every day in the bay behind the house and even spotted an otter. The beds were so, so comfortable and there was plenty of room in the home. We enjoyed the use of the canoe and kyack while there as well. The home and property were very clean and well maintained. It felt like a true home, not just a place set up to be rented with cheap furnishings. Can tell a lot of effort has been put into the home and it was a privilege to have had the chance to stay there. Would recommend to anyone and hope to go back whenever possible.

A Beautiful Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Ocean Blue over the week of Thanksgiving and had such a wonderful time. The house is so comfortable and had up to date furnishings, appliances and other amenities. The master bedroom is a dream come true. Waking up in the morning to an unbelievable view of the Gulf of Mexico was a dream come true. The bedding was very comfortable and the extra sitting area was great for a private reading or relaxing area. The second bedroom also was very accomodating with another king bed and huge closet. The third bedroom was nice and cozy but more suited for children. The living area had super comfortable furniture, a large flat screen and awesome sound system for watching movies. We made Thanksgiving dinner there and had everything we needed in the kitchen to make a wonderful dinner. We spent a lot of time outdoors enjoying the sun, having fires every night, fishing and kayaking. The channel side of the house was also great for boating and fishing. It is a great rental and we will definitely be back again! Thank you!!
