View manatees in the clear water that flows past our property while you swim, canoe, kayak, or boat around our home. In about a 10 minute boat ride you can be in the Gulf of Mexico. Choose an island of your choice just off the coast to picnic and watch the sun set. Get a work out by taking a canoe or kayak trip up the Weeki Wachee River, then relax as the current brings you back home. Enjoy up close and personal many of our local birds, fish, and tropical plants in a quiet and relaxed setting.
The property itself is on a quiet corner lot at the end of Tuscawilla Drive. Clear spring fed water flows by two sides of the property. It is exciting to look below the surface of the water and watch a 8" wide blue crab feed on the bottom. Watch the snook, sheephead, and mullet swim by regularly. The manatee love the spring just 200 feet past our home. Enjoy the shade of a large Florida Oak, the beauty of flowered azalea bushes, and lots of flowering plants. You can enjoy a gentle Gulf breeze while standing on the deck of the modular home built on stilts. Bring your boat, jet ski, canoe, kayak and tie up to our boat dock. Bring your fishing poles. Or bring your puzzles. Enjoy and Relax!!!
Close by is Weeki Wachee Spring and the live Mermaid show. Pine Island provides a public Gulf Beach area for picnicing and swimming. Watch the dolphins play while you walk out 1/4 mile and still only be waist to chest deep in water. Go south to Tampa for the activities there or head due east about a two hour drive to Disney and Orlando.
Locally, you can find a variety of restaurants and shopping centers. Everything that you need can be found within six miles from your furnished home.

Right on the river!!! You can pull your boat right up to the house! From water the upperdeck is less then five mins away!!! We saw a manatee every day!!! Even a baby and her momma right out side in the back!! We will be back and family and friends are already inquiring about our stay!!!
This house was amazing!!!
We had such a great time! We got to see manatees. It was very relaxing! We will be staying again!
It is vacation season and the summer dates will book quickly. Consider our home for your stay. Our goal is that each guest have a great time and want to come back again.
This property has potential, with its wonderful location on the water in a quiet neighbourhood. Unfortunately, it has not been well looked after, and is badly in need of attention. The indoor carpeting is a disgrace, stained and fraying. A living room and dining area chair were broken. Linens, pillows and towels need to be replaced. Some areas of the house were not clean. The door to a small screened room at the back had been removed and was propped up against the wall. The outdoor area, which could have been lovely, was also neglected, with old, rusty furniture, unsightly piles of wood, and rotting indoor/outdoor carpet. We were very disappointed in this rental.
Almost all of the homes on the Weeki Wachee posted on VRBO are by home-owners that share their home with guests during certain portions of the year. Our home is not a resort, but our home. Great reviews come from those who appreciate a home setting on the river. Please feel free to choose our home if you like a clean, well kept home with a great view. Everything outdoors is exposed to salty air as we are two canals in from the Gulf of Mexico. You may need to wash the salt off, but we provide all the cleaning material. Feel free to read the reviews of those who stayed before and after this guest.
Great, relaxing hideaway!!
Very nice home right on the water (back dock and one open side); last house on cul-de-sac so very private and peaceful.
Owner extremely cooperative during my stay; bent over backwards to accommodate my requests even at his expense. Never "popped in" which was his right; adding to the extreme sense of privacy.
Highly recommended -- grab it for next year before I do!
Great little place on the water
Had a great time at this house. Even saw a momma and baby manatee swimming by!!!
It is our goal to provide a home where a great time is facilitated. Look at the pictures posted of our home and visualize yourself standing in this environment. Quaint and peaceful is our goal for your stay in our home. You will need it after a hard day of play out on the water.
Excellent time !!!
What an excellent location. I had a friend of mine coming down from the Northeast and wanted to show him the beautiful waters in wiki Wachee. The view from this corner lot on the canal is amazing and the fishing was pretty good too. Small boat rentals within minutes, bait tackle and restaurants just a couple minute drive also.
David was extremely accommodating and for the price I will definitely be renting this location again in the future. Thanks again
Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall, come on down from any part of the country and you will find our home on the Weeki Wachee convenient for all the local amenities. See the wild life up close and personal. Enjoy the beautiful weather during this time of year as well.
