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

We are a St Augustine family that fell in love with this area. The home right on a spring run is a life time fantasy, and now its real. General Contractors, Cabinet Company, and Real Estate rentals is our background. Special interests include Stand up Paddleboards, mountain biking, road biking, snorkeling, and boat building.

John Nock purchased this house in 2015

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!

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This house is like a little piece of paradise! We booked this house with the intention of going to the beach a few days during our stay but never made it off the river.

Spent everyday kayaking, swinging off the rope, and sitting on the dock talking to the folks paddling by.

Our family of 5 decided this will be our go to place every year for vacation.

Simply amazing!

House has everything you need and the neighbors are quite lovely.

Oh, the manatee, saw about 5ish everyday.

Thank you for an amazing memory!

Great spot on the river! Quiet and relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

My family vacation was relaxing, and enjoyable. Beds were comfortable, and the kitchen had everything we needed. The river is beautiful, and I had my coffee on the swing every morning soaking up the peace and quiet. We took the kayaks out every chance we got, and went up and down the river everyday. We saw manatee every day, and there are lots of nice restaurants nearby of which we recommend Richie's Cheesesteak. We will definitely be returning!

Great river getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome time at this house! The location was perfect, the house was very clean, and the neighbors were friendly. The owners were very responsive and helpful. Everything was just as expected and even better actually! We traveled with our 2 toddlers and our dog, and it was perfect. We would definitely stay there again.

House is perfect location is awesome!

  • 5 of 5

The majority of our time was spent on the giant patio and the docks. The swing on the dock was so peaceful day and night completely unbeatable in my opinion. We got to be big kids on the rope swing it's hard to separate yourself from this magical place when it's time to leave. Very cleanly spacious house, happy to say we are already planning a trip for next year for a longer stay of course! Thank you guys for allowing us to have an awesome birthday weekend for our men!

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.
