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!

Great House with a beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay. Loved the décor and most comfortable bedding and towels. The elevator was a great asset, not having to lug stuff up the stairs .Well furnished kitchen, everything you need. A great home away from home!

Relaxing weekend get away!

Property was exactly as described. Dawn was easy to work with and it was nice to have kayaks to use while we were there. Will definitely go back.

Luxury on the canal!

  • 5 of 5

Who would have known you could pamper yourself in beautiful lodgings while enjoying the nature of the Weeki Wachee canals. The bedding and bath towels were soft and inviting. The kitchen was well stocked. The furnishings were comfortable and functional. There was plenty of storage in the bathroom and in both bedrooms and closets. Plus the place was spotless from top to bottom. Dawn has provided puzzles, books and games as well as beautiful accessories without over crowding her gorgeous home.

Since we were blessed with fabulous weather we ate most meals on the top deck. We kayaked nearly every day and enjoyed spotting manatees in our canal plus in our "secret" spots on the river. We saw eagles, dolphins and an otter when we kayaked out to the ocean plus tons of fish, turtles and even a crazy raccoon when we kayaked to Weeki Wachee State Park.

Dawn is truly a gem. She went above and beyond and I look forward to working with her next year since we will be staying again March 2018. Can't wait...already miss the TREE HOUSE!

Great locations with good fishing off the dock. Spotless home with comfy beds.

  • 5 of 5

The treehouse fit our needs perfectly. We have rented other homes in the Weeki Wachi area, this by far is our new favorite. Clean, well laid out and decorated home, amazing location, a neighbor with every tool you ever need :-) good fishing, good tanning and all the fun of Weeki Wachi and the Gulf.

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.
