Overview

About the property

You Can't Beat River Front, It is Magical

Very nice, 3 bedroom (upstairs), 1 and 1/2 bath, home right on the river.

Huge screened porch just steps from jumping in or launching.

50" LED tv with full fastest available internet, and a land line phone (cell service is spotty)

Home is in very nice condition and will be exceptionally clean for your visit. Double fish cleaning sink for your catch. Two new wooded decks right on the river.

We provide everything except-food,, and beverage of your choice.

Currently there are four kayaks included, and you can rent any water craft nearby.

We are near the takeout at Roger's Park (upstream, this is very important) and there is a huge nature preserve across the river (no homes). You can paddle upstream or boat downstream to the Gulf (in about 15 minutes)

Both wood decks are able to accommodate boats and the water is deep enough for boats and swimming.

Relax on the huge screened porch or the river decks and watch the manatees, otters, fish, and boaters come by.

We may consider some pets, especially if they are kept on the 1st floor (it has all laminate flooring) No promises, but you can inquire.

Home easily can sleep six, and we don't mind 8 if the kids want to sleep on the couches, or the screened porch (my favorite)

Come and enjoy the river !!

FYI - This home is not a party house. Neither the Owners or the Neighbors will allow excessive visitors or noisy partying.

About John Nock

Why John Nock chose Tampa Bay

How can you describe "Riverfront" ? There is no substitute. That early morning plunge to the afternoon cocktails teasing the passing boaters.

Or lower you boat into the water and go see a Gulf sunset.

Another amazing stay at this home! Perfect location, so comfortable and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time at this home and I'm already looking at dates to book it again. So comfortable and relaxing. Perfect location. I love the giant screen porch, comfortable beds and unbeatable river access, swing and decks/docks. This is the best place to stay in Weeki Wachee, in my opinion!

Beautiful, peaceful river home

  • 5 of 5

John's house on the Weeki Wachee is comfortable and spacious. The best part is the screened porch facing the river. We played cards, did a puzzle and just enjoyed watching people paddle and float by. There are four kayaks and a tube. We put them to good use. We were lucky enough to see manatees every day.

Excellent! Only regret...we couldn't stay longer!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location, beautiful home, and friendly and helpful owners. We could not have enjoyed our stay more! Our favorite part was sitting on the porch, right over the water and just relaxing. Home was super clean, beds were comfortable. So much to do...swimming right off the back porch, Hospital Hole a short swim away, kayaking either upstream or downstream, and the rope swing right off the porch. My son and I were excited about the fishing and we weren't dissappointed there either. Bass and snook were all within easy kayak range. We would recommend this home to anyone looking to stay on the Weeki Wachi. WE WILL BE BACK!!

Perfect getaway for all ages and it was gorgeous!

  • 5 of 5

A group of four people met down in Florida for a weekend getaway. We had never stayed in the area before but we loved it! The manatees were so cool and we saw them every day. The kayaks were also great to use, and the place was overall really nice. We had breakfast out on the dock every morning and also loved having the grill. I would definitely stay here again, the place was very clean.

Wonderful from the first minute we walked in the door.

  • 5 of 5

As soon as we excitedly walked in the front door after the long drive from Ontario, Canada we were impressed with the cleanliness and spaciousness of the place. Great living room with big TV, nice kitchen, big rooms with massive (and comfy) king size beds and huge screened room overlooking the back yard. The back yard was a perfect spot to relax with double decks right on the river where we could fish, catch crabs and swim and kayak right from the steps that led to the river. Manatees and huge fish (that eluded my hook and worm) swam by and dozens of Kayakers went by at all times of the day allowing for great people watching, especially the ones that had no idea how to kayak. our little shi-poo Hershey loved the fully fenced back yard and walks around the safe and quiet neighbourhood. Location is great with nearby beach (only $5 for parking but go early!), many restaurants, Walmart and Starbucks 10 min away, and handy for day-trips to Clearwater and Tampa. Many days we just wanted to hang out at the house. Overall a fantastic stay and a rental residence I would highly recommend.

Located on the Weeki Watchee river about 1/2 mile from Roger's Park takeout and 7 miles from Weeki Watchee State Park. Sleepy neighborhood and the street is deadend. About 1/2 mile from very nice county boat ramp. All shopping and dining is just minutes away.

The state park is and iconic attraction from the 40's. Kayaking, canoeing, and paddleboarding are a huge draw on the area. Just downstream from the house, you enter the Gulf for supposed great fishing. Very nice, affordable , restaurants nearby.

A great place to unwind by a cool, shady, spring clear, river.
