Weeki Wachee cabin description

Click on the VRBO video camera on the left to see video of cabin inside and outside area. Charming waterfront cabin has all you need for a perfect vacation. Water views from every window. There is a front and rear covered porch to enjoy a meal, drink and the beautiful Florida weather. Bring your boat and dock it right at the cabin. There is plenty of room to park your boat trailer- 2 lovely treed landscaped lots and 183 feet on the water. Explore the cool crystal clear 6 mile Weeki Wachee River. The river leads into the Gulf of Mexico and Mud River (about a ten minute boat ride). Kayaks (for 5) and a canoe (2) are provided free for your use. Or if you prefer to rent a small motor boat, the marina is a ½ block walk. Month long rentals have choice of free pontoon or flats boat trip with USCG licensed captain, Larry Roderick.
The cabin was completely remodeled down to the studs and was just finished May 2012. There is a front covered deck to enjoy watching all the goings on at the park. The private large covered back porch has a comfortable seating area and outdoor eating area. There is an electrical outlet if you prefer your morning coffee brewed on the porch. There is a seating area in the yard with a fire pit or you may wish to relax on the dock and watch the fish.
You will enjoy all new appliances, new Sealy posturpedic beds, a washer and dryer, a new 37” Panasonic HDTV with hundreds of crystal clear channels, music and Netflix, wi fi (lightning 40 Mb), DVR, and free long distance. There is a bedroom at each end of the cabin. The master bedroom has a queen bed and a full bathroom (hair dryer provided). The other bedroom has two twin beds and a full bathroom with connecting door. The living room couch has a recliner at each end and also two club chairs with ottomans. The fully equipped kitchen has everything you will need-coffee maker, toaster, blender, dishwasher, microwave, wall oven, and cooktop with vent. There is a washer and dryer inside the cabin for your use. The cabin is comfortable for four people, but if you have five we do have a new rollaway bed for your use.
Yes, there is central airconditioning and five ceiling fans. There is a heat pump for the cooler weather.
You will not feel the summer heat if you take a dip in the cool 72 degree spring water. It is so refreshing!

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2012

              About the owner: Husband Larry is retired FL State worker. Wife Linda is a retired registered nurse. We love to boat and fish and always take our dogs along. We have two Chihuahuas and two maltipoos. All four pups have life preservers and enjoy their time on the water and exploring islands. I, Linda, love gardening and collect orchids, ferns, begonias, and succulents. It has been fun landscaping around the cabin. Larry started an inshore fishing charter business about 5 years ago when he retired. Some clients prefer his flats boat and others like to use the pontoon so more can fish. He loves taking folks fishing and enjoys creating great memories for his clients.

              Why the Owner Chose Weeki Wachee:
              We moved to this location in Weeki Wachee 22 years ago and enjoy it very much. We consider this area a paradise. In January 2012 the place across the street became available. We decided to remodel it and use it as a rental so others could enjoy our haven. Now, I must explain, although we are across the street, we cannot see the cabin for the trees. And we will of course respect your privacy. But if you have a need, we are here to help. We want to share our paradise with others.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
              We especially enjoy that we are just 4 miles from the conveniences and crowds on the US 19, but yet in this peaceful haven it is laid back and stress free. Seeing the seabirds, boats going by, people enjoying the sunshine as they kayak past us, viewing manatees, river otters, deer, and porpoise from our second story window is always a joy. We never tire of seeing herds of manatees and have enjoyed their touch as they have brushed against us on the river. Cooling off in the 72 degree water refreshes us for the entire day. There are so many sandy private beaches along the winding river to get out of the kayak and take a dip or you may prefer to dip at Rogers Park. Our favorite kayak trip is down the Weeki Wachee River to the connecting Mud River to a narrow creek that has wild orchids growing in the trees. It takes several hours to make the trek and it has been a ritual we enjoy every few months. Recently we put our kayaks in at the Weeki Wachee Springs Attraction ($5.00 fee per kayak to launch from the Springs) and enjoyed a scenic four hour kayak adventure.
