About John Nock
We live and work in St Augustine in the building, rental, and self storage business. Four great children that love the river as much as we do.
John Nock purchased this House in 2017
Why John Nock chose Spring Hill
This home is probably one of the best situated on the Weeki River It is one mile from Rogers Park (the take out point) and four miles from the State Park. So kayaking and paddleboarding right from the deck is so easy. Also the home is just beautiful with tile floors and some all wood paneled rooms. Of great importance is that across the river is a very large conservation area. So no homes on the South side of the river, just beautiful woods. And there is even a boat garage complete with an automatic door. You can leave your kayaks in the water, or stash you small power boat inside. Please consider our current lack of reviews since we just purchased this home. Perhaps look at our other two homes on the Weeki to see how well they are reviewed.
What makes this House unique
The popularity of the Weeki has caused the State Park overload on the launches. They have gone to a reservation system. Between that and very limited parking, its hard to get on the river some days. So kayaking right from home you can go as often, long or short trips, as you like. Paddle, come cook lunch on the grill right on the river, and go back out again. This home is very boat friendly, just tie up on the river and take sunset cruises to the Gulf every evening. We have a new concept, courtesy of a guest. This home is an ideal location for your wedding. The large paver deck, right on the river makes a very romantic location. And we have two other homes, right on the river and nearby, for your guests. Please contact us for special package pricing. There is plenty of parking for you, your guests, and your boat trailer.

Beautiful House and Views!
We had a great experience staying here over 4th of July week with our teenaged kids! The setup in the back is amazing and maximizes the river fun! Being able to just walk into the river (literally) off the back patio was so cool. And it was so much fun to watch the people in kayaks and the boats go by. People watching at its finest!
The house itself was very clean and well-equipped. It had great updates and you could tell it was kept well and set up with comfort and convenience in mind. We had plenty of room for 5 and probably could have room for a couple more on the pull out singles upstairs in the loft sitting area. You won’t regret staying here! Several people were so impressed with the setup that they were asking for the address as they kayaked by to find the listing so they could rent it.
We loved our time spent on the river. We saw lots of manatees and enjoyed kayaking the stream. The house was so comfortable and it was great to have kayaks and paddle boards available. We hope to visit again soon.
Best Family Vacation to date!
Wow! From the moment of our arrival until our departure, we were overwhelmed by beauty of both the home as well as the location on the river. House was very well equipped for all our needs. The seperate screen porch on the deck, with ceiling fan was a nice treat (highs were in the 90's) and we were cool and bug free. The daytime was filled with fun on the river with the provided kayaks and paddleboards and enjoying the ample deck space. Just a short 20 minute paddle upriver to the snack 'barge' on the river. In the evening the entire family spent time outside on the back deck people watching, seeing manatees, and enjoying each others company. The house was very clean upon our arrival, the owners obviously care tremendously about providing a wonderful experience to their renters. They succeeded! We will definitely rebook. Thanks John.
Easy. Everything was as promised. Had a great time. Would definitely go back.
Perfect spot for a relaxing weekend
Highly recommend, great house to rent!
Amazing vacation on the crystal clear Weeki Wachee River.
We had an amazing time at the Clock House. John and Kitte were awesome hosts. They were quick to respond and went above and beyond in making sure that we had a great vacation. The house is beautiful and very clean. We spent most of our time outside. The backyard was perfect for us. Plenty of room for us to play. We enjoyed using the boats. My son was really excited to take a boat down to Hospital Hole so he could free dive.
Thank you so much for an amazing time.
Directly on the cool, clear, Weeki Watchee River.
Great swimming, kayaking, paddleboarding, birding, and manatee watching.
