Car: Recommended

Hernando Beach is a rural, residential Gulf Coast community with world class fishing. The area is famous as Tarpon Country-but there’s Grouper, Snapper, Snook, trout and Redfish, too. Nature and wildlife preserves surround Hernando Beach but your close to everything.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1996

About: Howie was born and raised in Northern New Jersey (Colonia). Carole was born and raised in Southern Connecticut (Greenwich). We are both retired and try to travel as often as we can.

Why Hernando Beach, FL, USA:
We love our Hernando Beach house. It is peaceful and relaxing but close enough to everything so as not to be remote. We found we were not using the house as often as we thought we would and it just sat there empty so we decided to turn it into a vacation home for other people to enjoy.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Direct access to the Gulf of Mexico. Bring your boat or rent a pontoon boat and you can spend your day out on the Gulf. Rentals are available just at the beginning of the street. Solar heated pool which helps extend the swimming season. Shrimp boats pass every evening on their way out to the Gulf and return in the morning. Dolphins are seen on a regular basis in the canals and I have seen a mother Manatee and her baby right at the dock.
