About the property

2 bedroom, 2 full bath with canal views

Exceptionally clean and recently renovated with a cottage feel. Two bedroom, 2 full baths. Split bedroom plan: Master bedroom is on the water end with a king bed, private closet, and adjacent to the master bath (with garden tub/shower combination); second bedroom is on the opposite end with a queen bed, walk-in closet, and private bathroom (with tub/shower). Fifty foot dock on deep water canal (4 foot deep at low tide) is ideal for mooring your boat for the quick trips to the Gulf (15-20 minutes). Two kayaks are provided for short paddling trips to the Weeki Wachee river and Hospital Hole. Furnished with a clothes washer, dryer, oven/range, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, 46" Sony flat screen TV with cable and DVD player in family room, 42" plasma TV in MBR, towel set-up, and anything else you may need during your stay.

The Nature Coast lives up to its name - listen to mullet jump, watch the manatees play, and fish or catch blue crabs from your dock.

Roger's Park is within a mile, and has a sand beach and boat launch. The Weeki Wachee River State Park is 3-4 miles away, and is the home of the famous Weeki Wachee mermaids, a beach at the head of the natural spring (water temperature of the river is 72 degrees year round), live shows, and other attractions. Kayaking down river from the park is one of the most beautiful trips you'll ever experience, is easy for beginners, and takes about 2-3 hours to arrive back at the unit.

Within a short drive there are several golf courses, hiking trails, another beach park on the river and one on the gulf, shopping, and several restaurants.

You'll love the tranquility of this area, the friendliness of our neighbors, and the overall relaxing atmosphere of the Magical Retreat!

About Gary Pond

My wife and I have been enjoying the Weeki Wachee Preserve since we first discovered it in 2008 through a friend while scalloping. We've loved the area ever since then, and hope that you will feel the same way.

Gary Pond purchased this mobile home in 2009

Why Gary Pond chose Weeki Wachee Gardens

The tranquility of the neighborhood, the proximity to restaurants and shopping, and the abundant nature are the reasons we chose the Weeki Wachee area.

Wonderful, peaceful location

  • 4 of 5

We spent a quiet, peaceful week here and really enjoyed it. The quiet was amazing and allowed us to enjoy the canal, the birds, etc. We spent a lot of time just reading and relaxing. Since our Florida trip is also about visiting with our elderly mother, this gave us a place to bring her to let her enjoy the outdoors, too. She doesn't get much opportunity to do that. The only thing that keeps this from being a 5 star stay was the broken vents, which made it difficult to regulate the A/C. Other than that, it was lovely. The beds were comfortable, the couches, chairs, etc., were also some of the most comfortable ones we've experienced in all the years we've been coming down there. Would we come back? Yes. If just my husband and I make the trip again, we will remember this place as somewhere we want to return.
