About Bryan Whitelaw

My wife & I live and work in Scotland. We bought this villa last year as a potential retirement home and as such have furnished it to a standard that we would enjoy in our primary home in Scotland. We are regular visitors to the villa and consider it a second home and not just somewhere we rent out. We love the area and the 'Old Florida ' feel . The wildlife views and general nature coast is stunning and we find new places to explore every time we visit. We hope that you will enjoy the villa and area as much as we do.

Bryan Whitelaw purchased this house in 2011

Why Bryan Whitelaw chose Florida

We have been coming to Florida since the 1980's and it was always our dream to one day live here. Having travelled all over the state from the panhandle to the keys we found that Weeki Wachee has solitude enough to provide quiet and relaxation but is close enough to Tampa

for ease of travel and cultural experiences. There is so much to do in the area that it could never be boring yet the tranquility is so awe inspiring that you will want to return time and again just like us.

What makes this house unique

The house is one of only a few available in the area with its own private swimming pool. Although swimming in the river is good fun the pool is far more comfortable and safe for guests to keep an eye on children. The local bar restaurant is a short walk away or if you brought the boat a 10 minute boat ride from the dock right to the dock of the Upper Deck. Live music and friendly locals make this a must visit experience. The manatees swimming past the dock is also a magical experience and an every day occasion.

Nearby Hernando Beach has a good selection of bars and restaurants. Day trips to Busch Gardens in Tampa or the Dali Museum and International Mall are all but an hours drive away.Further north is Crystal River and Homosassa with a selection of attractions such as monkey island and Neon Leons Zydeco bar and restaurant .

Guestbook comments from the manager

Stayed at the house here as guests of the owners and found the location to be idyllic and the home amazing. Right on the river Gulf access and a lovely heated pool and hot tub. Christmas dinner on the balcony was the best I have ever experienced. For a perfect family vacation you can't rent better in the area.

Peaceful relaxing time over the holidays.

Clean, well maintained, convenient to the gulf, great pool

  • 4 of 5

Great location. Well kept. Lots to do for kids. Needed some basic supplies like toilet paper and garbage bags and the ramp to the boat is very steep and could use something for when it's low tide. Other than that we would recommend it to anyone.

Owner's Response: Garbage bags and toilet roll was in abundant supply during this persons stay if they had looked in the clearly marked cupboards or asked the property manager where they were . The ramps to the boat dock are steep in the summer low tides but still perfectly usable there is also a ladder attached to the sea wall for larger boats. Unfortunately I have no control over the tide and local ordinance only allows for floating docks to be placed a certain distance out into the river.

Perfect family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Three Palms Villa is the perfect vacation getaway. The house is beautiful. The location is gorgeous. The location has a traditional Florida feel (lush and tropical) and is located directly on the Weechi Wachee waterway, where you can canoe, kayak, watch manatee, see otters, etc. The pool is wonderful to play around in or just relax. Our family enjoyed dining al fresco on the enclosed balcony (we never actually ate at the dining table in the house). One of the best vacations our family has had!

Amazing House!! Beautiful location!!

  • 5 of 5

The property was great- nice and quiet. Very relaxing being tucked away from the hustle and bustle of life with shopping just 10-15 minutes away. The home was beautiful, very open and bright. The screened in balcony was the best! Well equipped with everything needed time have a great time. Pool/Hot Tub area beautiful, Kayaks -the views from the water are truly stunning. The only con was being too far away from mile long white sand beaches. Overall, I would recommend this home for sure! 
