About Joe & Janet Embleton
We are a retired couple that lives in WV.
Joe & Janet Embleton purchased this Mobile Home in 2016
Why Joe & Janet Embleton chose Weeki Wachee Gardens
We fell in love with the canal, the river, and the Nature Coast of Florida! To us, there is no better place to be! It is a quiet friendly neighborhood. All of our worries, the few we have, melt away as soon as we pull into the driveway! We LOVE it here and we think you will too! There is nothing like going out on the river and being so close to all the wildlife the river has to offer.
What makes this Mobile Home unique
At our Bear Spring Vacation Home, you have the benefit of being able to interact with manatees right in the canal- right off our 50 foot dock! You can fish from the dock, in the river, or in the Gulf from your own boat! The kayaks are not permitted past Rodger's Park. Add that to being adjacent to the Weeki Wachee Springs Park, where they have the Mermaid show @ the spring head. We also enjoy Homosassa Springs Park, Howard's Flea Market, and DISNEY- an hour and a half away! You will be right where you to need to be to RELAX and have ADVENTUROUS FUN!!

Had a great time here. Price was good. Clean and cozy. Nice dock and kayaks. we will rebook, for sure.
Fantastic kayak adventures!
Our family of 6 absolutely LOVED our time at Weeki Wachee. The house was perfect for us and the various rooms offered plenty of space to be together or to have quiet alone time. The house had everything we needed for the stay (cooking supplies and dishes, towels, pillows, washer/dryer, etc). The hosts were extremely responsive to our questions and so kind. Having 6 kayaks ready to go was our favorite part and we used them nearly every day for a new adventure. The manatees are wonderful, especially at “hospital hole”. We also enjoyed watching the fish jump while siting on the deck, and watching the little lizard, “Whadya” (short for “Whadya wanna name him?”), from the screened porch while drinking morning coffee/tea. Sunsets at the Pine Island Beach Park nearby were gorgeous. A day trip to Clearwater Beach is a must (though it does take awhile to get there) and the sand feels like soft powdered sugar! We hope to return some day to this house—the perfect spot on the river!
Great place for the price with all you need to enjoy the river
We had a great time!
Not far off the beaten path of blue water, rope swings and scalloping! Very spacious, clean and convenient ! One large room stays alil warm. Plenty of kayaks for everyone!! We had a wonderful time! The owners where very polite and attentive! Would definitely rent again!
Cozy retreat for the family
The home is well furnished with furniture and housewares. It allowed our family to navigate through the canals on our boat with only minimal difficulty. Was amazing to swim beside the manatees. We didn't use the Kayaks provided, but there were plenty to use if needed. Really liked the little gazebo near the water, however, the mosquitos didn't let us relax there often :). Overall, would rent from again. Only recommendation, bring/supply extra fans as the air conditioner doesn't keep the home cool, at least for my families taste. Thanks for letting us use your home for our Weeki Wachee vacation memories.
Nice waterfront home
Very roomy home with everything we needed and more. Nice dock with access to the river and ocean so we could keep our boat in the water for our stay. The kayaks were also nice to travel up river to hang out in the sandy areas of the river(even though it is boat accessible). The home owner was very timely in replying to any questions throughout the process of booking and our stay. I look forward to returning!
Plenty of local restaurants. There are several beaches within thirty minutes with Pine Island only five miles away. It is 1.5 hours to Disney and an hour to Tampa.
