About the property

This is an extraordinary destination and vacation spot that is sought after. As a guest you will be charmed, delighted, and enchanted by the rustic beauty of this natural habitat preserve and pristine water way as you explore and journey up and down the river. Keep alert and have a camera handy as your journey on the river is awe inspiring and teeming with wildlife to witness. Naturally, the peaceful and gentle Manatees that travel this waterway are the main attraction and if you are lucky you may come across some. The river water remains at a steady 74 degrees year round. This is one of the reasons why it remains a safe haven, feeding area, and breeding ground for Manatees to raise their young and flourish.

Relaxing Stay on a Beautiful River

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I loved our time on the Weeki Wachi River while staying at Pam's Mermaid House! Clean and comfortable lodging, while being surrounded by colorful unique furnishings. We highly recommend the place and Pam was a wonderful hostess, making sure we had everything we needed and advising us on local things we could do.

We enjoyed the opportunity to prepare breakfast in the outdoor bar area which really worked for us and added to the ambiance of the experience. Just make sure if you plan to stay at this wonderful home that you are aware that there is no formal kitchen. There is a full size fridge and coffee maker in the sun room along with a griddle under cover in the outside bar. Again, this was idea for us, but just make sure significant cooking is not in your plans and you will be beyond satisfied with your stay in this wonderful abode.

We put our kayaks in at the backyard steps and paddled up to the head of the springs 5 miles up river and then back down. What a beautiful river and such a unique experience to launch and complete your paddle at your own lodging. Sitting out by the river before bedtime was so relaxing you could hardly make it to the bed due to being so chilled out.

Again, we can without reservation recommend your stay at Pam's charmingly whimsical lodging on the banks of the Weeki Wachee River!!

Super fun place to kayak and see wildlife. Saw manatees and lots of birds. Pam is a great hostess. Had lots of fun. Lots of great restaurants to walk to or ride bikes, or go by kayak. Great place to swim also.

Great location for wildlife, forays around the area and very comfortable!!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the river with all of the birds and fish. It was warm so we swam a bit (yes, in February). Great location to connect with wildlife settings, seafood markets (Trader Bay), Tampa visits (The Florida Aquarium was awesome) and the beaches (Pine Island is one of or favorites). We enjoyed the kayaks to navigate the river and look for manatees (no luck on this visit but they are around). Really enjoyed interacting with people going up and down the river, they were obviously enjoying themselves. Pam is the ultimate host, making sure that everything was to our liking and going beyond to help us be comfortable. The porch was a great place to hang out, even in February. All in all, a great location to enjoy central west Florida!!!

An absolute dream house!!

  • 5 of 5

Union arrival we were immediately impressed. This is the house on the river we have always wanted to stay at and all the locals speak of. Every corner of this house is decorated in it's own unique way. There were so many activities offered and available right on site. Our family enjoyed kayaking, paddle boarding and we even swam with manatees!! I wish I could attach photos as you too would be so impressed. I would recommend this place to anyone. I know our family will be back real soon! Thank you Pam!!

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful girls weekend at Pams mermaid house! I have kayaked by this home many times over the years and couldnt belive my luck when i found out it was available for rental. The house is beautifuly decorated and offered plenty of space for the 4 of us. The outside deck was perfect for just relaxing and watching everyone cruise by. The steps that lead into the river were very helpful for boarding the 4 kyaks that are free to use with the property. We even saw a momma and baby manatee!! Pam was so nice and accommodateing! I would definatly recommend this rental and we will be back!
