Why Marilyn and Steve Peck chose Weeki Wachee Gardens

This home has been in my family for over 15 years. It is a beautiful, peaceful get away, where you can relax and be away from the hussle and bussle of everyday life. Weeki Wachee Springs is a natural spring which stays at 72 degrees all year round and is the home of many manatees in crystal clear waters. Take the Kayaks down the river and see various birds, fish, and manatee. Stop at the hospital hole and dive into the deepest part of the river. or hang out on the sand bars and swim with the manatees or snorkel.

Clean, comfortable place to stay

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this house for a week with my family, 8 people in total. We had plenty of room. There is much thought put into amenities here, and the owners are very helpful. This is on our list for return trips to the area.

Amazing and family friendly

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the location and the property. It had everything we needed for a relaxing week away. Being able to kayak as a family and see manatees along the canal was fantastic. We were also able to watch fish, turtles and manatees right off the dock

There was no need to bring anything for in the kitchen, except your food, all the cooking utensils you would need were there. Also had a nice laundry area with laundry detergent and dry sheets available.

The screened in porch was a great place to play family games and eat meals

Every convenience that you would need was there. Marilyn and Steve thought of everything!! Will be recommending this property to friends and family

Great Beachhouse

  • 5 of 5

We had a really nice time. The weather could have been warmer but it wasn’t snowing! The kayaks were a lot of fun and we actually saw a manatee in the river on our last day! We went to the Italian restaurant around the corner one day and the food was good. We also went to the Upper Deck for dinner. Tip - the dinner menu at the Upper Deck is not worth the money although the food was good. The lunch menu, which you can order from during dinner time, was worth the money and food was good. We are wine drinkers and drank our wine out of juice glasses. Then we went to the Dollar Tree and bought four of them and donated them to the house - so enjoy! :) 🍷?

We went up to the Homosassa Wildlife Park and enjoyed it a lot! My golfing friend found a nice 9-hole short course at World Woods Golf Course and she said it was great and inexpensive!

All in all we had a great time and would recommend staying at the Beachhouse!

Lovely property in Weeki Watchee

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I really loved this property. Everything is redone, immaculate and well-maintained. Marilyn and Steve are great host and touched base to make sure were were all settled in and to tell us to call them if we needed anything. Everything was absolutely flawless - The house was well stocked and the master bath was set up like a spa. The house sits right on a lagoon with a cute dock and the screen porch overlooks the water (watch for the flying mullets :) ). They do have kayaks, but neither my husband and I took them out. The neighborhood was quiet (we were there in February) and the neighbors were very friendly. I would highly recommend this property. Thanks Marilyn and Steve for a wonderful break from the cold weather in the Northeast!

Great place, great location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I really enjoyed this house. It is in very good shape and in a good location. This place is so well stocked that we could have just brought clothes and some food. Tons of toiletries and cleaning supplies. We made good use of all of the boats and kayaks. Very quiet neighborhood. I had a chance to meet face to face with Steve and he is a great guy. Everything worked in the house and the appliances are modern. We would stay there again.
