Come enjoy the beautiful Weeki Wachee River or fish the amazing Gulf of Mexico.
This canal home on the Weeki Wachee River is completely remodeled inside, light and airy open floor plan, with wood flooring and nice furnishings along with a wood burning fireplace. Watch the manatees from your backyard. This canal leads to the most pristine part of the river with crystal clear water.
Explore the river at your own leisure with the furnished canoe and kayaks. The river has direct access to the Gulf of Mexico, so bring your boat and enjoy fishing, diving and Scallop season which begins July 1st. There is a private dock in the back yard to enjoy as well as boat and kayak rentals nearby, public boat ramps, and hiking and biking trails along crystal clear lakes.
There is a public beach at Rogers Park on the River or if you want to enjoy the Gulf of Mexico just head over to Pine Island. Take in the sunset at Bayport Boardwalk or Fishing Pier. Fishing Charter boats, both inshore and offshore, are close by.

Year Purchased: 1985
About: This home has been in my family since 1985. My parents retired and bought this home to be able to slow down and enjoy the beauty and tranquility of the Weeki Wackee River. I am a native of Tampa and I enjoy my time at my Weeki Wachee house as much as my parents did, maybe even more.
Why Weeki Wachee, FL, USA:
As a teen I would come to the Weeki Wachee River and go camping with my horseback riding club. We would camp in the woods and frolic in the water with our horses. On other occasions we would just come for the day with our old truck tubes and ride them down the river. This river has brought me many decades of pleasure and happy memories. It continues to make memories for me and my son.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The home underwent a beautiful renovation in July of 2009. Since then I have decided to rent it as a vacation home. I now have the opportunity to let others enjoy it as well as myself. So far it has given me such pleasure. I enjoy the outdoors to every extent from biking, kayaking, fishing, scalloping, or just sitting on the dock in the morning drinking a cup of hot coffee or tea. There are so many opportunities close by for you to be able to enjoy nature and the outdoors. I sit and watch the eagles and the falcons in the sky and look out for the manatees and the otters in the canal. What a joy :) I hope you will take the opportunity to come and stay and get as much pleasure out of my home as I do.
