About Paula Germain

Family owned and lived in since 1975. Recently completely remodeled entire home. Now renting for vacation home.

Paula Germain purchased this cottage in 1975

Why Paula Germain chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

This is a smaller home but you will be amazed how roomy, comfortable and completely relaxing this home is. We have had friends and family stay here and they have been pleasantly surprised by the comfort and charm of the home. It is close to restaurants, all the chain and lots of local ones. Plus all the shopping you will need.

What makes this cottage unique

The home is located in Weeki Wachee Gardens, it is close to everything but far enough away for relaxation. The yard is completely fenced in. You can canoe or kayak from the ramp in the back yard.

Cozy, homey cottage surrounded by nature

  • 5 of 5

This cottage on the canal in Weeki Wachee Gardens is only a 10 minute drive to Bayport Park on the Gulf of Mexico, where people gather to watch the beautiful sunsets. There are plenty of parks around so you can enjoy nature even if you don't take advantage of the canoes provided by Paula and Ray. It's also close to all the restaurants and stores you could ask for.

Paula and Ray were very responsive and easy to work with, but never intruded. They have the cottage stocked with everything you need to just move right in and start your vacation. It is decorated in a mermaid/nautical theme, which is so appropriate being right by the Weeki Wachee State Park with the mermaid shows.

If you're looking for glitzy, this is not the place for you. If you're looking for a comfortable, cozy HOME during your vacation, this is it. I have already recommended this cottage to a family member.

Wonderful Cottage on the canal

  • 5 of 5

Our family truly enjoyed our vacation at this very well-kept cottage on the canal. Inside the cottage is larger than we had expected and the decor fit the atmosphere well!! We really enjoyed using the 3 kayaks. Everything that we needed was there and Ray was so helpful in meeting us and assisting us some with our boat. The only negative thing about our experience was that it was difficult to get into and out of our boat with the PVC pipes and cement pavers...an actual dock would have made things a bit easier! However, we have 3 small children. Adults probably don't have a problem with that! We really enjoyed everything about our stay otherwise. We would love to come back again next summer! Thank you for everything!

Two long term stays

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at this location during the winters of 2014 & 2015. (10-12 weeks per visit) Photos and descriptions of the cottage are accurate. It was recently redecorated, is clean, and well outfitted. Paula and Ray are attentive, friendly landlords. We enjoyed local attractions & events listed on the Hernando County website. Other renter reviews confirm our observations. Our circumstances have changed, or we would return for a third season. Thank you and best wishes to you Paula and Ray.

Canal Oasis

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent three fabulous weeks at this very comfortable, cozy cottage on the canal! It was pure pleasure meeting the owners, Paula and Ray, both of whom could not have been more helpful or more accommodating. The cottage offers peace, quiet, comfort, all the amenities of home, and plenty of space! The canal provides manatees at your feet, turtles, and high jumping fish for entertainment! The cottage, though very private and peaceful, is conveniently located, just 5 miles to anything you might need.

Though we did not take advantage of the canoe or kayaks, they were available.

Our two small poodles loved the fully fenced yard, and had a great time chasing frogs and small lizards.

Owner's Response: Thank you Marsie for your review. You and Bradley were great guests. We couldn't have asked for nicer people to stay in our cottage. I thoroughly enjoyed visiting with you both. I was hoping you would find a permanent home nearby so we could visit again!!!

Weeki Wachee River is a quiet community and yet it is only minutes from everything....Weeki Wachee State Park and Buccaneer Bay Water Park, restaurants, shopping, golf, swimming, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, tubing. North of us is Homosassa Springs, Crystal River and Rainbow River. To the west are Orlando theme parks which are about an hour away as is Tampa and Ybor City to our south. Clearwater, St.Pete & Bradenton Beaches are also about an hour south of here. The Gulf of Mexico and local beaches are about 10 minutes away. Local canoe and kayak rentals are located at Rogers Park. The sandy bottom and crystal clear water make it an ideal spot to witness lots of wild birds, turtles, manatees, otters, dolphins and a abundance of fish.
