About Lisa Gill

Permanent residents of Florida, who enjoy the Florida sunshine. Bought the property in Weeki Wachee to enjoy boating and fishing year round.

Lisa Gill purchased this house in 2007

Why Lisa Gill chose Weeki Wachee Gardens

We bought the property in Weeki Wachee due to its location away from it all. Waterfront property lends to a relaxing atmosphere. Love to sit on the dock, drink coffee and watch manatees and turtles swim by or fish jump out of the water all the way down the canal. When we are ready to go boating, we just step off our dock into our boat and we are on our way to explore the surrounding areas. Love to travel to Homosassa and visit Monkey Island or head south and visit New Port Richey and eat at Hooters or the Crab Shack on the water. There is a beautiful island with white sandy beaches just outside of New Port Richey that is a great place to dock the boat and have a picnic named Enclove Key.

What makes this house unique

Weeki Wachee is a natural spring river with water temperatures year round at 72 degrees. Manatees thrive in the river due to its warm winter temperatures. We even seen dolphins in the river. The water in the river is crystal clear and enjoyed by canoes, tubers, paddle boarders, kayakers and motorboats.

Weeki Wachee is centrally located to visit other places by car or boat. Weeki Wachee park is world famous for seeing the live mermaids. Tarpon Springs is south and has a wonderful waterfront greek village with great food and world famous sponge docks. Homosassa has a wildlife park and many great places to eat on the water. Crystal river is just north of homosassa and is also a great place to visit and explore.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is the 2nd time I have stayed at this home with my husband and it was nothing but spectacular. We brought our boat to use for the 4 days we were staying to go fishing and we caught lots of fish! The home is nice and spacious, definitely room for us to bring friends the next time we visit. The area is nice and quiet with very friendly neighbors. Planning the visit was very easy thanks to the owners who were very helpful and organized. The home is very clean, I felt very comfortable using all of the equipment and kitchenware. We plan on coming back very soon as this has been our favorite VRBO vacation house.

Cozy riverfront vacation

  • 5 of 5

This home and vacation was great for the whole family! We had an amazing time whether we were swimming and fishing off the back doc, canoeing or boating on the river or out to the Gulf of Mexico to go swimming and scalloping, and for those days we wanted to veg out at the house there was plenty to do for the adults and kids....the house was stocked with games like a wii and soccer ball game or corn hole for the outdoors! They had wifi available which work very well and cable in all the rooms also. The house was very clean and decorated so cute! The kitchen was fully stocked with plenty of dishes and pots and pans and even a kerig.... And outdoors had a nice grill and set up for entertaining also....Very accomodating! We really enjoyed this peaceful, family fun escape from reality and look forward to coming back soon!

Owner's Response: I'm sorry you were not completely pleased with the accommodations. The property is exactly as it is listed. Because the canal does not have a white sand bottom and is covered in leaves, you are unable to see to the bottom like you can on the main river, but the water is clear. However, if you had the opportunity to read our guest books, you would see our guests have seen manatees in our canal quite frequently. Our rates are very competitive with the area. That may be one of the reasons you chose our property. As it is unusual for us to receive a review with less than 5 stars, I'm not sure what went wrong, but I hope you enjoyed your time in Weeki Wachee.

Wonderful Home!

  • 5 of 5

The home is spacious and provided much enjoyment for our family vacation. We used the included kayaks and canoe almost daily to check out the waterways. The best part was paddling to Hospital Hole and seeing the manatees. We also went fishing and visited several other areas and attractions in Florida. Returning to this rental after a fun day of adventuring always felt like returning home.
