Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom, 1 Bath on Canal

The original owner of this property told us that she felt like she lived in a tree house. She was right! Enjoy lazy days under the shade of these big beautiful live oaks. Updated recently with new floors and furnishings, you will find our home very comfortable and peaceful.

This home with 2 spacious bedrooms and 1 bathroom sleeps 4 people comfortably. Queen size bed in master, full size bed in guest room. Kitchen is fully stocked with pots & pans, utensils, dishes, and enough "essentials" in bathroom and kitchen to get your vacation started.

Once you get settled in, go out and enjoy the outdoors. The pristine Weeki Wachee River is home to an abundance of wildlife. You'll see sheepshead, mullet, blue crabs, and of course manatees. I counted 10 manatees one early morning leaving the spring at the end of our canal! And of course tropical birds, hawks, and eagles. Use my kayaks (2) or canoe (1) or bring your boat and tie up to my dock. Or you can rent a jon boat or kayaks from the marina across the road from the entrance to my neighborhood. Take the provided beach chairs, beach towels, and umbrella to the beach at Rogers Park, on the river (2 min away) or Pine Island, on the gulf (10 min).

My family and I have been spending weekends in this home for 10 years. It should have everything you need to enjoy your time here. And if you're like me and don't want to carry your bags up the stairs...put it all in the elevator and send it up!

Super comfortable river retreat with everything you could ask for from kitchenware to kayaks

  • 5 of 5

This was the cleanest house i have ever stayed in on vrbo/airbnb and cleaner than any hotel ive ever stayed in. Everything in the house was brand new the two recliners in the living room as well as the couch are very comfortable and clean. The floors were clean enough to eat off of as were the countertops! Both bedrooms are very comfortable you wont miss out on any sleep here. Theres two really cozy sitting areas outside too, i couldnt be happier with my stay and i couldnt be happier with the owner. I will deffinately be staying here again if im in the area

Great place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

It was a very lovely place to stay. The home was warm and cozy. Having the kyaks and canoe available made our trip to the river perfect. We can't wait to go back for another staycation.

My sister, mother and I enjoyed our stay so much. It had everything we needed.

  • 5 of 5

We felt like we were in a tree house.

We enjoyed it so much. My mother finally got to try kayaking for the first time at 70. Bucket list check for her! Kayaking was so much fun. It was great having the kayaks right at the house.No worrying about going and renting them.

We also enjoyed fishing right off the doc, the beautiful butterfly garden, the BBQ grill, the gorgeous home decor, the comfortable patio chairs downstairs and the comfy beds. Just a few things to list. We will definitely be back. Thank you Dawn, so much for everything.

Old Florida at its Best!

  • 5 of 5

Everything you could need was provided in this beautiful home. There are so many things to do nearby. We enjoyed a day on the crystal clear river where we swam, spotted manatees and other amazing wildlife. Very peaceful and relaxing. Great seafood at The Freezer and the Upper Deck. We will definitely be back. Thank you Dawn. We highly recommend your place for anyone looking for a great vacation

Everything was perfect! Very well equipped & comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice stay, the weather did not cooperate but the home was a perfect place to spend rainy days. The deck was so much like being in a tree house....we saw a Manatee & her calf when we had lunch at the Upper Deck (good food!). Close enough to anything you might want to do yet still such a feeling of privacy. Anything you need is there...amazing & so thoughtful of Dawn the owner. We highly recommend staying there..and will return for our next mini vaca.
