About the Property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

View manatees in the clear water that flows past our property while you swim, canoe, kayak, or boat around our home. In about a 10 minute boat ride you can be in the Gulf of Mexico. Choose an island of your choice just off the coast to picnic and watch the sun set. Get a work out by taking a canoe or kayak trip up the Weeki Wachee River, then relax as the current brings you back home. Enjoy up close and personal many of our local birds, fish, and tropical plants in a quiet and relaxed setting.

The property itself is on a quiet corner lot at the end of Tuscawilla Drive. Clear spring fed water flows by two sides of the property. It is exciting to look below the surface of the water and watch a 8" wide blue crab feed on the bottom. Watch the snook, sheephead, and mullet swim by regularly. The manatee love the spring just 200 feet past our home. Enjoy the shade of a large Florida Oak, the beauty of flowered azalea bushes, and lots of flowering plants. You can enjoy a gentle Gulf breeze while standing on the deck of the modular home built on stilts. Bring your boat, jet ski, canoe, kayak and tie up to our boat dock. Bring your fishing poles. Or bring your puzzles. Enjoy and Relax!!!

Close by is Weeki Wachee Spring and the live Mermaid show. Pine Island provides a public Gulf Beach area for picnicing and swimming. Watch the dolphins play while you walk out 1/4 mile and still only be waist to chest deep in water. Go south to Tampa for the activities there or head due east about a two hour drive to Disney and Orlando.

Locally, you can find a variety of restaurants and shopping centers. Everything that you need can be found within six miles from your furnished home.
