We have been vacationing in Weeki Wachee for years. My wife grew up on Sebring Street and brought me down there to enjoy the Nature Coast. When I realized that I truly loved it here (after several years of vacations), we decided to purchase our own home here. In turn, we would like to share what we love with you and your family! We see manatees EVERY time we visit. Manatees are gentle and majestic creatures. Just watching them swim is quite relaxing. We love our experiences every time we come to Weeki Wachee.
Aaron Hester purchased this house in 2015
Alot of the reasons are listed in the "about you" paragraph, but I will elaborate further..... The neighborhood our house is in is quiet and relaxing. We really enjoy eating dinner right on the water courtesy of the glass table on the lower deck/dock as the sun sets and goes down. We get almost daily visits at our dock from the manatees. You can fish right from the dock, and bring your boat!
We chose this property because of the decks and the dock. Easy access to the gulf for some really good fishing! Another amenity was the exterior third bedroom with a front door and a rear entrance to the decks via french doors. The spacious living room was another thing that caught my attention. Our entire family could sit comfortably. Also the dining room has a built in bar....seating for all.
We thoroughly enjoyed our week at the Manatee Hideaway. We spent most of the day either on the river in the kayaks or on the beautiful decks of the house. Very relaxing and enjoyable. Was a great time with our family of 7.
Overall nice and homey with a few quarks. Great location. Many items to use for kids and adults. Owners are very helpful and take recommendations. The owners have done a good job making it a home away from home.
The Manatee Hideaway is a superb choice for a family or small group. Three bedrooms and a spacious comfortable living room. Great multi level rear deck on the canal with access to river and ocean by boat or kayaks furnished with paddles. Kids had a great time with these. I wish I could stay year round. Lots of great food and attractions nearby. Caught some nice Blue Crabs right off the dock and was able to catch mullet for bait with cast-net off the canal dock also.
Hurricane Matthew was coming in at the end of our stay so we had to leave a day early as to join the evacuees on I-75. Would definitely recommend this Vacation Rental to anyone. The owners are super nice and helpful, making us feel like family!
Crystal and Aaron, thanks so much for sharing your lovely home on the water. We had everything we needed to enjoy the beautiful surroundings and river. We didn't use the bikes since it was so hot, but my husband enjoyed trying his hand at the basketball game a few times. We used the kayaks almost everyday and especially enjoyed the 5.5m. trip from the head of the springs of Weeki Watchee. We saw water fowl, raccoon, and several different species of fish. We also enjoyed interacting with a manatee and her calf for a few hours one day right on the canal in front of the house. That was an awesome experience! Thanks for being so quick to respond and make recommendations to any questions that we had. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
We had a blast! I brought a full house of family from Scotland and they loved every minute. Kayaked everyday and had manatees come to the dock daily. My brother caught mullet right off the dock (made his day even though he threw them all back :))
Very well equipped and comfortable home. Kid friendly and very clean.
We hope to be back next year. Thank you Crystal and Aaron for treating us like family and sharing your "Manatee Hideaway" with us :)
We all had an amazing time. We didn't want to leave. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us.
Pine Island is a really nice family friendly beach that is only five miles away. We are only an hour and a half from Disney World and an hour from Busch Gardens. We went to the aquarium in Tampa as well as the Lowry Zoo, also in Tampa. Both were GREAT! We also enjoy kayaking/boating/snorkeling in the Weeki Wachee river. Crystal clear water!!! If you like to fish, you can be in the Gulf reeling them in within 25-30 minutes! Homosassa State Park is a lot of fun as well! Check it out! Also, MY favorite restaurant in the area is Crackers in Crystal River, FL. They have live classic rock bands at the outside bar, great food, and you can dine by the water. Need I say more?
