3 Bedroom 3 Bath Solar heated pool home with 4 kayaks & canoe on canal system
About Dan Gill
I was born and raised in Brooklyn NY, after serving in the US Navy I went to NJ for a visit. Thats when I met and married a farm girl and moved to the country. Nearly 50 years later we have retired and bought a vacation home in Florida.
Dan Gill purchased this House in 2016
Why Dan Gill chose Weeki Wachee Gardens
After a trip to the area for kayaking with my brother, my wife and I fell in love with the live oak draped canals and the pristine river. The abundance of wildlife with birds, Manatees, and fish at the back door is a marvel. The convenience of boating access to the gulf for fishing, boating and tubing from our own 100ft bulkhead added another plus. The previous owners feedback for this property could not be transferred to our new listing description. There were 21 5 star reviews in the last 18 months. It is our intention to maintain the same high standards as Pat & Nancy.

Very clean, owners have included everything necessary for a comfortable stay. Saltwater pool was an amazing plus! Great location, easy to get to everything in the area.
GREAT location for a quiet get away
The house was absolutely fantastic!! My favorite part was the fact that we are in a smaller town without a ton of people. My son barely left the pool!! My husband was glued to the dock fishing!!! And the kayaks provided at the house make exploring the weeki river a breeze!!!
We rented through a private charter that starts in the state park PLEASE DO THIS!!! The water at the park was breath taking and while floating down we saw 5 manatees!!!
Hernando beach was by far my favorite beach!!
Go to homassa and take an airboat ride with top gun air boats.
Also tarpon springs HAS THE BEST SHOPPING!!!!! They also do a.dolphin cruise and tou get to shell on an island for 30 minutes. I found a conch shell almost a foot in length!!!
The upper deck restaurant has out door seating on weeki river. Their steak fajitas ARE TO DIE FOR!!!
Ok back to the property lol. It has all the comforts of home!! Tons of extra pillows and blankets...pool floaties. The neighbors are super nice. I cant wait to stay here again.
I last thing...there is a turtle who swims to the dock every day waiting for food. We gave him bread. Hes the cutest!!
Anyone who rents here will not be disappointed!!!
Perfect family vacation
Mermaid manor is perfection for a family vacation and we can’t wait to go back.
Great house. Bedrooms were smaller than we had imagined but common areas and grounds made up for it.
We needed for nothing. It was a great get away. Dan and Holly are lovely and helpful. We would definitely stay again! The house is in a quiet residential. Access to the river was great. The pool was awesome but needs some work. Jets don’t all work and pool grime doesn’t circulate into the filter as well as it should. BUT that did not take away from the pleasure or use. Having two living spaces was excellent for us. Everyone could do there own thing in the evening. It was just well worth the $ and close to our family and we loved every minute!
Great home with a pool
We had a great stay at mermaid manor. Our group consisted of four adults and three children, and we always had plenty of room. The house was clean and well kept, and also had everything you could need. Dan called on day two which was really nice having someone check up to make sure all was good. The pool is awesome, and since there are not many homes with pools in the area it made this gome even better. Dan gave us some recommendations on places to check out and we did. If you go to Tarpin Springbe sure to visut Rusty Bellies for some great seafood. We also went to Weeki Wachee Springs and enjoyed the mermaid show and water slides. We brought two 20 ft boats and had room to keep both. Unfortunately the weather didn't cooperate the way we wanted so we didn't get to use the boat much, but the pool was used at least 5-6 hours a day. All in all, we had a nice time and will be sure to book this house again.
