The villa is a 10 min drive from beautiful sandy beaches and the warm waters of the Gulf coast. They are safe with golden sand and often have wild dolphins swimming very close to the beach. Alternatively there are a number of freshwater rivers (with the very rare Manatees) set in wildlife reservations ideal for canoeing/kayaking. The closest of which is only 1 mile away.
Tampa Airport is 1 hr drive away. Orlando Airport is 1hr 45 mins drive away. The use of a rental car is highly recommended during your stay.
Clearwater and Tampa beaches can be reached in an hour whilst Hudson Bay beach will take you 20 mins by car. All shops and amenities in Weeki Wachee or Spring Hill will take you 10 minutes by car.
Walmart, Winn Dixie, Publix superstores are all within 10 mins by car as are banks/ATMs, clothes shops and chemists. Numerous good quality restaurants such as Red Lobster and Outback can be found on Highway 19 - a 15 min drive from the villa. This highway also has many great bars offering very good value for money light meals and TV entertainment. An absolute must is to visit Pine Island beach (10 mins), Hudson Bay beach (20 mins) and to try out the kayaks on the Week Wachee river (5 mins). In our opinion (having visited them all!) the Busch Gardens Theme Park in Tampa (1 hr away) is the best Theme park for both adults and children alike. New in 2014 is a 50" HD TV, Blu Ray DVD player, surround sound system, new dishwasher,fridge/freezer and w/machine & drier. Jacuzzi now operates via new electronic remote control system.
Year Purchased: 2009
About the owner: Hi. We bought a wonderful French Farmhouse over 24 years ago and have spent a lot of time effort and money on making it into a typical French Charentaise Farmhouse set in a beautiful quiet part of rural France. Please see FR 5502.
We have now bought a wonderful villa with pool on the west coast of Florida to add to our collection and are hoping that visitors can enjoy both homes, each individually different and set in superb locations. Please see F 1415.
Why the Owner Chose Weeki Wachee: We bought this villa on the West, Gulf coast of Florida this year as we loved coming to Florida with the family, enjoying the Theme Parks and beaches, and of course the 365 day a year sunshine! We chose the Gulf coast, to get away from the hustle and bustle of busy, cosmopolitan, touristy Orlando and looked for a beautiful large home close to the beach in an area that is so much quieter and not commercialised. We found it here, in Weeki Wachee. Wonderful, friendly people with outstanding golf and swimming/beach activities for everyone.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa: Our home offers you the ability to quietly enjoy the pool, jacuzzi and wonderful sunshine on a quiet residential community with a wonderful Clubhouse, and the opportunity to explore the fantastic beaches, rivers, wildlife and nature all around you, on the same holiday. Not forgetting, for those of you that indulge and play a round of golf or two, make sure you try out the communities own superb 18 hole course.
