                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2012

                  About the owner: I lived in St Petersburg Florida in the mid 1970's and moved back in 1999. I have a vacation rental in St Petersburg and recently purchased this home in Weeki Wachee Gardens. I love it here. It is like stepping back in time to 'Old Florida' where life was much slower and the backyard is full of nature. Fish jumping constantly in front of the house. We have a pair of otters that swim by and say hello. Manatees and sometimes dolphins swim right in front of the house. Fish or throw out a crab trap for blue crabs right in front of the house. It is a fabulous corner location and so very quiet. The water is smooth as glass and reflects the trees, the sun/sunset colors of the sky and the moon. See picture of sun deck to see the reflecting trees. It is mesmerizing.

                  Why the Owner Chose Weeki Wachee:
                  This home is on a culdasac that ends at the waterway. It is a corner lot that has water on both sides. It has two docks one 14' and the other 16' for you to fish from, crab for blue crabs, sit on and watch the wildlife or just enjoy the waterfront. Bring your own boat and dock it here. Parking for your RV. Sleeps up to 8 people with a queen bed in master bedroom, two twin beds in split plan 2nd bedroom with half bath, sofa bed, and trundle day bed that can be two twin beds or one king bed. Main full bath in hall, 2.5 baths total. Has washer dryer, dishwasher, side-by-side fridge with water dispenser, microwave, coffee maker, toaster over, crock pot, blender, propane barbecue and all the other kitchen necessities. Linens and towels as well as beach towels provided. Cable TV with wireless internet access. TV in living room and also in both bedrooms. 2 canoes provided with paddles and life jackets.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Waterfront with direct access to Weeki Wachee River and Gulf of Mexico. Comes with 2 canoes, paddles, life jackets, crab trap, bamboo fishing pole, outdoor seating. Quiet riverside community with everything very nearby in Spring Hill only 10 minutes away. North is Chassahowtitzka /Homosassa/Homosassa Springs/Crystal River/Rainbow River; Tampa and Orlando less than 1 hour away; Gulf Beach 10 minutes away; great location.
