Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Weeki Wachee - The Manatee Stop

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

You Found It, as there are no dissapointments here! Welcome to our vacation home with limitless opportunities to enjoy the River Life! Our stilt home has recently undergone a top-to-bottom renovation with no upgrade overlooked. You will appreciate the Cozy surroundings and an Exquisitley Decorated 2 Bedroom/1 Bath Home to enjoy nature, beaches, and the marina as we do! Relax in the family room surounded by Rich Leather Sofas and Hard Wood furniture and floors as you watch your favorite Movie or Root for your Favorite Team on the 47' HD TV and snuggling up to the Crackling warmth of the no-hassel Fireplace. Cook a Fabulous Meal in This Upgraded Kitchen with Granite Counters and maple cabinets---OR walk to dinner at The Upper Deck Restaraunt just down the street for Live music and great food almost every night of the week!

Bring Your Own Boat and tie up to our dock for easy acces to the River or the Gulf of Mexico for great fishing year around. Roger's Park boat ramp and public beach is only steps away! Conveniently located, the Marina is also only steps away from the house if you need to grab a gallon of milk, bag of chips, or ice---they also rent canoes and jon boats with 10hp motors for a modest fee. However, we do offer 2 single, and 1 double kayak for up to four people FREE OF CHARGE to our guests---this will save you a ton of money over a weekend! The river offers numerous opportuities for wildlife viewing with Manatees, Otters, Deer and Other Wildlife---or just do as I do and have a Wonderful Picnic on the River Bank and watch the world go by...

If your interests include more than just water sports or beach walking the area offers exceptioal golfing opportunities from World Wood Resort to Black Diamond G&CC a short drive away. Also, Around the Corner is the World Famous Weeki Wachee Mermaids and Buccaneer Bay Park. To Enjoy the Most Beautiful Sunsets, Drive to Bayport Boardwalk/Pine Island---about 10 minutes away to Catch Dolphins Playing in the Ocean as the Sun sets...Amazing!

Very pleased with home!

  • 5 of 5

We called Maryann last minute as our reservation from another home was less than satisfying. She was extremely helpful and accommodating. She let us see her home within 15 minutes of the phone call. She was very sweet and the home was impeccable. The view was beautiful and the water access was fantastic. We would love to visit again.

Perfect vacation home!!

  • 5 of 5

To begin with Ms. Hurley was an absolute pleasure to deal with from the start. Their home was very nice and the pictures do not do it justice. It was nicely furnished and one of the cleanest homes I have ever rented. We truly felt at home during our entire stay. We particularly loved the rear deck overlooking the river and a beautiful stone patio. Everything worked flawlessly as promised and I have a feeling if there had been any issues they would have been there immediately as needed. There are a multitude of local restaurants to choose from. We will definitely be back!!!

Owner's Response: Thanks for all the compliments on our home and on how I keep it for my guests. It is always my pleasure to ensure that my guests are happy with the house and how I have it set up. I know that when I stay somewhere I would like the basics to be supplied and the home to look and be super clean. I love that I usually have the time to meet my guests and I look forward to your return so that we can meet...I missed you during your stay. Welcome to our Weeki Wachee Family and take care until next time.

Owner's Response: I am so glad you found the house to your liking. I try to leave it for my renters as if they are truly my "own" guests. Sounds as if you and your family enjoyed the area as well as the river. Staying during Scallop season is wonderful if you are able to bring your own boat. It was a pleasure to meet you and look forward to having you back next year. Welcome to our Weeki Wachee Family and stay safe until then.

Great little staycation spot

  • 5 of 5

Great little property right on a canal right off of the river. Loved the kayaks that came with the place. It saved a lot of money in rentals! Saw quite a few manatees that weekend which was awesome.

Owner's Response: We love the location of our home. You do not have the business of all the kayakers but are super close to the river to enjoy it at any time. It makes me happy to know you enjoyed having the kayaks to explore the river on your own time and as many times as you wished. That is a nice plus that comes with renting our home. Hope you return again to enjoy the river and the area. Welcome to Our Weeki Wachee Family and be safe until your return again.

the perfect spot

Loved the house & location. So close to Roger's Park, & on the water. Super balcony with comfy chairs to enjoy rain or shine. Kitchen has every item you'd need. Great open living area. All was spotless making it so comfy & feel like "home".

Owner's Response: It makes me so happy that my guests enjoy their stay and love being at our home. Glad you enjoyed the deck on the back looking over the canal. One can spot so much wildlife from up there and time just passes by with such a relaxed pace. Welcome to Our Weeki Wachee family and hope you return real soon.

Every bit as good as it looks in pictures.

  • 5 of 5

As we pulled up to the property and I was unpacking the car, the family went to the balconry and immediately saw a manatee eating just off the seawall. This definitely set the tone for the rest of the vacation. There are kayaks on the property which we utilized. And within walking distance is a beach and park.

The house itself is positioned perfectly to any where you going to want to go. But you could simply enjoy the views from the property itself and it would not be time wasted. The kitchen has everything that you would need including gorgeous views of the river.

I can't recommend this place enough and look forward to coming back here.

Owner's Response: I am so glad you enjoyed our home as much as my family does as well. One of our favorite spot is the balcony. If you are lucky you can see all kinds of wildlife without even leaving the house. Kayaking around to the river which is minutes away is always so enjoyable and just as exciting as to what you will be able to experience. Glad you chose our home and we welcome you to our Weeki Wachee Family.
