About Bert Terwilliger

I grew up in Tampa so I already had a love for water.I came up to Weeki Wachee to visit friends and rented a cottage there.After a couple weekends there I became hooked on the natural beauty of the area and the water.

Bert Terwilliger purchased this house in 1997

Why Bert Terwilliger chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

I purchased this property as a weekend getaway from the hustle of the city.I could not wait for friday to head out to Weeki Wachee.

I have since moved up here and now live just five minutes away.Now I offer the place so others can enjoy the nature and beauty.

Perfect location if you want to see manatees!

  • 4 of 5
Verified Stay

The location was perfect for me and my husband, right on a canal off the river. We had an amazing experience paddling out to Hospital Hole as the sun came up. The river was quiet, peaceful and we were able to paddle along with seven manatees there (two babies!). We spent about an hour there by ourselves, such a fun experience. We paddled out another time and checked out a restaurant on the river. There are a lot of restaurant options within 10-15 minutes away. The house was ok and could probably use some updates and more comfortable, newer living room furniture. The bed was comfortable and the sheets were super nice. We were a little turned off by the neighborhood at first but ended up being very quiet and relaxing.

What an Amazing Place!

  • 5 of 5

This was perfect for our family vacation. Plenty of room for 4 adults and a child and even had ,my daughter drive over from Orlando stay one night with us. We used the Kayaks every day. Even has a boat ramp on the property. Saw manatees at the dock with coffee in the morning. There was a bar/restaurant on the river so make sure you bring some money for lunch...

Has everything you need for a vacation with your family! Will be back again next year.

Fantastic Location - Great Value

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

We stayed for 3 nights and LOVED the Weeki Wachee Waterfront. We canoed from the property every day to see manatees (and did see them!). The property has a nice area to launch from, and provides a canoe and 3 kayaks. There is a waterside patio with chairs (it would be nice if a couple were lounge type). The Wi-Fi signal is strong and quick.

The inside of the house is nice. It's a little older, so don't expect new construction. It was large for just the 2 of us and would be well suited for a family. There are two bathrooms with showers, one in the master, which is nice. Plenty of towels.

The location, besides being convenient to view manatees, is near some great restaurants. With our short stay, we didn't use the kitchen, but the fridge is huge and everything appeared well stocked for pots/dishes/etc.

If your from the north and don't know, keep in mind that heat pumps don't work well when the outdoor temperature is freakishly cold (below 40), which happened our first night. There were plenty of blankets, and once normal outdoor temps are reached the heater kicks back in.

Very clean & well-stocked! Not fancy but very comfortable! Would rent it again.

This property is like being at home - except it is right on a canal with its own dock & every small water craft you could want! It has a huge yard outside and spacious rooms inside. We especially loved the tables & chairs on the dock & on the screened-in porch for reading & coffee. Quiet street, great neighborhood for biking, some excellent restaurants nearby. This is not the Plaza, but it is an excellent family getaway.

House was clean and well equipped. Sat on the dock each morning with my tea...very relaxing. Bert stopped by to make sure everything was "ok". And kayaking on Black Friday beat fighting the masses out shopping by a long shot!!!!
