About the property

4 bedroom/2 bathroom Luxury Home Close to Roger's Park on the River

An amazing home to spend a few days to a few months with friends and families. Welcome to our vacation home with limitless opportunities to enjoy the River Life! Our 2 story luxury home has recently undergone a top-to-bottom renovation with no upgrade overlooked. This home is on a wide canal super close to Roger's Park and the Marina. Makes it easy to refill the boat with gas.

You will appreciate this large and an Exquisitely Decorated 4 Bedroom/2 Bath Home to enjoy nature, beaches, and the marina as we do!

First floor open plan includes A beautifully renovated kitchen with stainless steel appliances and a spectacular island to gather your family and friends. The kitchen has lots of storage space and is fully equipped to prepare a nice meal or host a nice get together. While cooking you can easily check out what is going on at the dining room and on the Samsung Curved HD Tv in the family room and you can also keep an eye out for manatees from the kitchen window. Relax in the family room surrounded by Comfy furniture and gorgeous porcelain slate tile floors as you watch your favorite Movie on Netflix or Root for your Favorite Team on the 55' HD curved screen TV with cable. You always have a view of the canal from the kitchen and the family room. There is a nice size bedroom with a queen sled bed that has bay windows and a bathroom with a 2 headed shower also on the first floor. This bedroom and bathroom has been painted a Pewter color that makes you think you are still surrounded by the river. All the decorations have been especially picked for this home. This bedroom is excellent for those guests that prefer to stay downstairs to sleep or to rest. Always have options to Cook a Fabulous Meal in This Upgraded Kitchen with Granite Counters and maple cabinets---OR walk to dinner at The Upper Deck Restaurant just down the street for Live music and great food almost every night of the week! The best part of this home is out the back door. The deck has been restored and there is plenty of space to hang out and cook on the grill. Use our kayaks to enjoy the river.

The second floor is just as awesome. The Master bedroom is amazingly large and it also has a nice sitting area where there is a 65" flat screen Tv. The King size bed mattress is so comfortable you will not want to get up! The Master Bedroom has large closets and also a sun room area that is attached that overlooks the canal. There is a large Bathroom for the upstairs that has two shower head/ bathtub and a bidet. It also has a 2 sink vanity with lots of space for personal items.The first guest room upstairs has a comfy queen sled bed and is very nicely decorated. The second guest bedroom has bunk beds and a single bed for the kids. The Kids room all have Disney character sheets and are very comfortable as well. Every room in this house has ceiling fans to keep you cool although of course it has central a/c and heat on both floors. There is a special treat upstairs! There is a screened room with comfy outdoor furniture that leads to a nice balcony on the canal. In this screen room is also a flat screen Tv in case you want to continue watching a game while enjoying the cool Florida night weather or smoke a Cigar as my husband would suggest. Here you can watch for manatees hanging in the canal,mullets jumping, or the many birds that fly around in our area.

Bring Your Own Boat and tie up to our dock for easy access to the River or the Gulf of Mexico for great fishing year around. Roger's Park boat ramp and public beach is only steps away! Conveniently located on a canal, the Marina is also only steps away from the house if you need to grab a gallon of milk, bag of chips, or ice---they also rent canoes and jon boats with 10 hp motors for a modest fee. However, we do offer 2 several kayaks, FREE OF CHARGE to our guests---this will save you some money over a weekend! The river offers numerous opportunities for wildlife viewing with Manatees, Otters, Deer and Other Wildlife---or just do as I do and have a Wonderful Picnic on the River Bank and watch the world go by...

If your interests include more than just water sports or beach walking the area offers exceptional golfing opportunities from World Wood Resort to Black Diamond G&CC a short drive away. Also, Around the Corner is the World Famous Weeki Wachee Mermaids and Buccaneer Bay Park. To Enjoy the Most Beautiful Sunsets, Drive to Bayport Boardwalk/Pine Island---about 10 minutes away to Catch Dolphins Playing in the Ocean as the Sun sets...Amazing!

About MaryAnn Hurley

We live in the area and absolutely love being on the water. We so enjoy coming to our vacation home and taking out the boat or kayaking up and down the river.

MaryAnn Hurley purchased this house in 2012

Why MaryAnn Hurley chose Weeki Wachee Gardens

We love this area because it looks and feels like old Florida. We can be as removed from our real world as much as we want or we can go up to 19th and Commercial way and find all the comfort of a big town.

What makes this house unique

We love the ability to look out our back door and see manatees, turtles or other wildlife. We love that this house is so spacious and all our friends and family can come and join us to create great, fun memories together.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This lovely home was perfect for us. The kitchen is spacious, with everything required for our Wonderful two month stay. The large deck off the kitchen gives a wonderful view of the Weeki Wachee Canal.

There is a bedroom and bathroom with a shower on the first floor, which is suitable for people who prefer not to climb stairs. The large master bedroom upstairs is beautiful, with a balcony that overlooks

the water. The ensuite bathroom has a double sink, and a large shower/tub combination.

The second floor also has a guest bedroom, and a nice children’s bedroom.

The owner is very friendly, helpful and obliging. This location is close to the beach, where one can dock

a boat, and where the Restaurant The Upper Deck is also located.

The year 2019 will be our third year returning to the enjoyment and serenity of this gorgeous home. We would definitely recommend this property to others.

Spring Break 2018

  • 5 of 5

This property was just what we expected it be from previous reviews as well as the detail MaryAnn provided as to what her place had to offer. The kitchen was updated with lots of room to cook or just hang out when inside. It had everything you would need for cooking as well. The house was very spacious and clean and easily accommodated all of us(8). The kayaks were an added bonus and were used daily. We would rent this house again if we find ourselves back in Weeki Wachee. And MaryAnn was very friendly and made contact with me prior to our stay and was available to us if we needed her(though we didn't). A good time was had by ALL!

Owner's Response: I was so glad to have you all back again. Great to hear that the reunion was once again a smash hit! Score! I love to have guests return and enjoy themselves so much and take such great care of our home. I was happy to hear that you rented a Pontoon Boat and the whole family went out and enjoyed the river and the Gulf. Woohoo! Glad the other homes next door were also available to accommodate all the extra family that joined in on the fun this year. Looking forward to your return next year! You guys are definitely part of our Weeki Wachee Family

Hope you do return and I would like to welcome you to our Weeki Wachee Family!

Beautiful, Spacious Home on a Beautiful River

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home on one of the most scenic rivers in Florida. We had 10 people for a small family reunion and the house was ideal. It's very spacious and lots of room to spread out and relax.

We loved the deck right on the water. This is a place we would definitely rent again!

Owner's Response: So glad you found our home comfortable to host your get together this year. This house does have a lot of areas to hang out the screen room upstairs overlooking the canal, the Master bedroom retreat upstairs with a huge Flat screen, the family room downstairs that leads to the outside deck on the water. We absolutely love this home and enjoy sharing it with others. Welcome to our Weeki Wachee Family and do hope you return some day soon.
