Property description

THE VIEW! Experience 'Old Forida' in this cozy charming cottage. The Weeki Wachee Preserve and river is just yards away and are in full view of the living room, dining room, and kitchen. Enjoy wonderful gulf breezes, sunrises and sunsets. Watch manatees, otters, heron, egrets, and an occasional dolphin, blue heron, and egrets. Go crabbing, fishing, or swim out back. At night, see the stars like you'll never see in the city.

Kayaking and Rogers Park Beach are a short walk away. Several restaurants serving freshly caught local seafood are just minutes away. Pine Island Beach on the gulf is a short drive and watch the mermaids at the Weeki Wachee Springs.

The Weeki Wachee River is a river in Hernando County, Florida, United States. It flows 7.4 miles (11.9 km)[1] westwards from Weeki Wachee to the Gulf of Mexico at the Weeki Wachee estuary. The name is derived from the Seminole: uekiwv /oykéywa, wi:-/ 'spring' and -uce /-oci/ 'small', signifying either a small spring or an offshoot of a town named Spring. The river is best known for its spring, and the Weeki Wachee Springs attraction built on the premises. The spring is the surfacing point of an underground river, which is the deepest naturally occurring spring in the United States. It measures about 150 feet (46 m) wide and 250 feet (76 m) long, and daily water averages 170 million gallons (644 million liters). The water temperature is a steady 74.2 °F (23.4 °C) year-round.
