About alice archibald

My husband and I are both from Florida and live near the property. We enjoy boating, fishing, scalloping, kayaking and all the beauty of the Weeki Wachee River along with the Gulf waters.

alice archibald purchased this house in 2014

Why alice archibald chose Florida

We purchased this home the end of Dec. 2014 and completed remodeling Feb. 2015 as a vacation home. Because we are from this area and generations past, we wanted to share with others what we appreciate daily. The Weeki Wachee River gives you peace, relaxation and takes you to a place where you can hear the birds in the morning, watch the ducks swim and see manatee swim by as you kayak or paddle around in our fun paddle boat.

What makes this house unique

The Mermaid Bungalow is fun and unique. It is a feel good, feel happy place with a fun purple kitchen and tropical soft colors in the bedrooms and bathrooms. You are able to relax and enjoy the simple things in life with that added adventure! SEE OLD FLORIDA in it's best with nature and have fun watching the MANATEES!!!

We are truly known for the cleanliness, save area and the extra fun features our Mermaid Bungalow gives. With having bikes, kayaks, paddle boat included make your stay an even more fun one!

Absolute Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place to relax and get away from the everyday hustle. We have stayed here once before and loved it so we returned again this year and had just as much fun as before. Kids loved kayaking and swimming. There is no need to over pack. This place has everything you need. Owner is great communicating from start to finish.

Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

This property is in a quaint little town and it is amazing!

It was beautiful being on the river, to enjoy catching mullet, sheepshead, and blue crabs. We so much enjoyed kayaking down the river everyday and plus it was good workout.

Alice the owner was an outstanding hostess and she welcomed us like we were best friends. Thank you Alice for an outstanding family vacation.

If you are looking for a relaxing, serene, beautiful vacation home this is the home you should choose.

This is a great place to unwind and just relax. The owners have made it extra special by providing EVERYTHING you can think of. We had a great time fishing from the deck and watching the manatees swim by each day. Thanks Beth for your hospitality.....we will definitely be back.

The Weeki Wachee attraction and water park is only minutes away where you can see live mermaids along with the mermaid show. Walt Disney and other Orlando attractions are only 1 1/2hrs from here. Local golfing, Pine Island which has a small white sandy beach and park (salt water) and Rogers Park with a white sandy beach (fresh water) are all very close by. Rogers Park has a playground fun for children, sandy volley ball court and have fun swimming in the Weeki Watchee River watching kayaks, paddle boats, boats and people having fun rafting on the river. A nice selection of places to eat located within minutes from our home or enjoy cooking from you own gas grill.
