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!

Exceeded Expectations for a Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

I couldn't have asked for a more perfect or comfortable vacation home. Of course the surroundings were gorgeous, and the "Treehouse" was at the epicenter of it all. Dawn supplied every amenity I could hope to find, from cooking utensils and supplies, to toiletries and towels. Next time we come to Weeki Wachee, we hope to be guests at the "Treehouse" again!

Great location and property!

  • 5 of 5

Very clean and accommodating. Just a quick paddle away from Rogers Park. Great patio spaces, and covered parking! The owner was very easy to work with, and was quick to respond. My family enjoyed our stay, and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Amazing place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This place was amazing. We loved the kayaking and wild life but it was also not far from town for when there was bad weather there was still plenty to do. We were only an hour and half from clear water so we also enjoyed a day there. The house was equipped with everything from washer and dryer to a grill and kayaks. We only had to bring our clothes and go to the store and get food. Having a kitchen saved on the cost of always eating out. But there were plenty of great places we ate at near by. Thanks for the experience and hope plenty more enjoy.
