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!

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.

Paradise in the Tree House

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed all over Florida and in the Weeki Wachee area several times in the past. This was with out a doubt, our favorite place ever. We truly felt like we were in a tree house. The house is tastefully decorated and was very clean and modern looking with just enough knick knacks to make it feel like a home. We immediately felt comfortable and at home. We loved having the larger area under the house to park and to sit under when it rained the few times it did. The dock was just right to park our boat and serve as a launching point for our kayak trips on the beautiful Weeki Wachee River. The kitchen was well appointed and had everything we needed to cook the scallops, fish and crabs that we caught. The neighborhood was very quiet and peaceful and made for some nice morning walks. We brought 2 of our own kayaks but, there are 4 there ready to use and you are missing out on some beautiful scenery if you do not explore the river.

All in all, we had a wonderful vacation and having such a great place to return to each day to re-energize made the trip just that much better. The Tree House is definitely a home away from home kind of place and will be on our list of destinations next year. Thank you Dawn for sharing your home with us.
