Why Jason and Andrea Soldini chose Weeki Wachee Gardens
In 2010, the family went on it's first Nature Coast adventure, tubing on the Ichetucknee River and scalloping in Steinhatchee. What a blast! In subsequent summers, the family explored Crystal River, Suwanee River, Homosassa Springs and finally Weeki Wachee Springs / Hernando Beach. Weeki Wachee was by far the favorite with its natural surroundlings, waterfront location, proximity to the river, gulf attractions, restaurants and shops. They returned the next year to the same vacation rental home. Since the previous years stay, a lot of thought had been given to purchasing a similar property in Weeki Wachee. Well, lo and behold...upon arrival the property across the canal was for sale and cried out for glorification!
What makes this House unique
Weeki Wachee River Retreats, where "Mermaid Cove" is located is loacted in the middle of State and National forest preserved lands. The gulf coast is only 10 minutes away, town with all the conveniences is only 10 minutes the other direction. Local attractions include kayaking, cycling, boating, fishing, scalloping and exploring. The entire Nature Coast has so many natural beauties to discover. Mermaid Cove sits right on the water. The Living areas and screen porch overlook the water. The dock offers a peaceful and relaxing place to sit. and watch mullet spring out of the water and manatees cruise by The water is lovely to swim in and the river is a very short paddle away . The river is navigable for small boats such as a pontoon, bowrider or fishing boat and is conveniently close to the gulf. The neighbors are wonderful and the vacationers are friendly. What better location could there be? This is the "Old Florida" that Jason and Andrea grew up in and have now rediscovered!

We had an absolute blast! The house was not the Ritz (but we weren’t expecting that because the pictures are exactly on point!). The house was incredibly clean and had everything we needed for our 4 day stay! We would definitely stay again!!
Cute and charming
Wonderful little Florida charm tucked away on the weeki wachee. Super cozy cottage. It has everything you need. The reason I left 4 stars is because the locks on the front door did not work. When we left the cottage, we had to lock all our valuables in our car.
Once again it was such an amazing time for me and my famiy, I can't wait to do it again next time and I will go back there again for sure. This was the second time we stayed and just as wonderful as the last. Thanks for the great place
Mermaid Cove was great!
Quaint place right on the Weeki Wachi cove. We loved being able to sit on the deck and play in the kayaks. We even paddled around 12 manatees and watched them play. The water is nice and deep so you can swim off the dock. House is nice inside with good amenities.
Great little place.
Loved this place! The location was great! Took the kayak to the end end of channel and manatees were there. So awesome! Very clean. Had everything we needed. Hope to come back next year.
Nice to sit out and see the fish jumping out of the water
We had a great time the place was really nice. Didn’t get to see any manatees.
