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!

Perfect Vacation Getaway for Two couples

  • 5 of 5

This property provided everything required for an ideal getaway. It was tastefully decorated and laid out. We grilled out every night, except one. That night we took Dawn's suggestion and went to one of her favorite restaurants, Brian's Place, and had a superb meal. We also had a fire every night in the fire pit, as did many in the neighborhood. We enjoyed taking early evening strolls throughout the quaint area, where people were very friendly. The kitchen was convenient to work out of and still converse with those in the living room. The water pressure in the shower was fabulous. My friend is a candle aficionado, so she was right at home here, lighting candles to give us wonderful ambiance. The kayaks and canoe were great to have and provided quite a savings. It was fun exploring the river and seeing the manatees. Loved the fact that Dawn responded quickly to questions, but was never in our face. Could go on and on over the many details that make this vacation rental a place you don't want to leave. I already have several friends and family that want to enjoy time at this abode.

We enjoyed our stay tremendously. The home is very clean and beautiful. The property is a short paddle from the main river and the owner is fabulous to deal with. We will be returning.

Wonderful place in Weeki Wachee

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a place close to everything yet nestled in a tranquil setting you've found it. The house is very clean and the property is nicely maintained. The owner is easy to work with and really cares about the guest experience.

Best place on the River!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolute blast! The perfect place to relax and enjoy river living. The house was perfect and didn't need a thing when we arrived. Perfect grill, perfect fire pit and perfect nights under the stars. Thank you Dawn for an amazing stay. We will be back and stay longer next time!
