About Pat

This home has been in my family since 1985. My parents retired and bought this home to be able to slow down and enjoy the beauty and tranquility of the Weeki Wackee River. I am a native of Tampa and I enjoy my time at my Weeki Wachee house as much as my parents did, maybe even more.

Pat purchased this house in 1985

Why Pat chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

As a teen I would come to the Weeki Wachee River and go camping with my horseback riding club. We would camp in the woods and frolic in the water with our horses. On other occasions we would just come for the day with our old truck tubes and ride them down the river. This river has brought me many decades of pleasure and happy memories.

It continues to make memories for me and my son.

What makes this house unique

The home underwent a beautiful renovation in July of 2009. Since then I have decided to rent it as a vacation home. I now have the opportunity to let others enjoy it as well as myself. So far it has given me such pleasure. I enjoy the outdoors to every extent from biking, kayaking, fishing, scalloping, or just sitting on the dock in the morning drinking a cup of hot coffee or tea. There are so many opportunities close by for you to be able to enjoy nature and the outdoors. I sit and watch the eagles and the falcons in the sky and look out for the manatees and the otters in the canal. What a joy :)

I hope you will take the opportunity to come and stay and get as much pleasure out of my home as I do.

Quiet retreat

  • 5 of 5

We planned a quick trip to, nowhere in particular, Florida. I looked through vrbo and found Patricia's home. Being a holiday weekend I thought all the "good" rentals would be taken. I'm glad they were because I found a great place. We were welcomed with fresh baked pineapple cupcakes and a very clean home. Patricia is very welcoming and helpful in planning a short vacation. Her home is very close to the springs and we used the kayaks she has to visit them. Cool, clear water and a laid back attitude. I'd rent her home again in a heartbeat. There's a great local restaraunt (something shack?). Everything needed, is provided for a nice stay, just bring food.

Thanks again Patricia!!

Clean, nice location

  • 5 of 5

My husband, me and our 2 friends enjoyed staying here. The house was clean and updated. It was close to grocery stores and shopping. Located on a canal, it is a short paddle up to Weeki Wachee springs. Thanks for having the kayaks and canoes available, it saved on having to rent some. Great weekend! We will definetly stay here again if traveling to this area.

The property and house was perfect!! A home away from our home!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time!! This was my husband and my first get away together since our daughter graduated high school last year. The house had an immediate warm welcome feeling as soon as we arrived. It had everything that we needed and then some. Thanks for the opportunity to stay at your house Pat. We saw manatees, an otter, an owl, a humming bird and a beautiful hawk. They liked to hang out and visit everday. We went crabbing and ate like kings that night. We are already talking about returning and our next adventure there. Thanks again Pat and you will be hearing from us. You have a great thing going here, thanks for sharing! We felt the love here The Casey's.

Home away from Home on Business Trip

  • 5 of 5

Home away from home! I travel a lot for business and wanted a place that felt like being at home! This was it! This home is beautifully decorated, super clean, had everything I needed and more. I had cable and wifi to be able to work when I needed to. Great ambiances! Dreamy bed! Love love the shower heads! I was only 5 minutes away to the beach and intown if I wanted to go to a restaurant or the stores. I will be back with my family to enjoy the kayaks and go on the river! Thank you for giving me a slice of home Pat!

Great Place

  • 4 of 5

Pat's home was so cute and set up with everything you may need...even a crock pot to have something ready for dinner after a day on the river.

The Upper Deck was close by and a great time!!

We will return:- )

Thank you Pat!

Great weekend getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

The property is adorable, clean and convenient location! The homeowner Pat was easy to get a hold of and was very helpful. Weeki Wachee is only about 5 mins away. You can paddle her boats (kayak & canoe) to Rogers Park (about an hour and half paddle) and they will shuttle you to the Weeki Wachee river. We will definitely be going back!!
