About Lisa Gill
Permanent residents of Florida, who enjoy the Florida sunshine. Bought the property in Weeki Wachee to enjoy boating and fishing year round.
Lisa Gill purchased this House in 2007
Why Lisa Gill chose Weeki Wachee Gardens
We bought the property in Weeki Wachee due to its location away from it all. Waterfront property lends to a relaxing atmosphere. Love to sit on the dock, drink coffee and watch manatees and turtles swim by or fish jump out of the water all the way down the canal. When we are ready to go boating, we just step off our dock into our boat and we are on our way to explore the surrounding areas. Love to travel to Homosassa and visit Monkey Island or head south and visit New Port Richey and eat at Hooters or the Crab Shack on the water. There is a beautiful island with white sandy beaches just outside of New Port Richey that is a great place to dock the boat and have a picnic named Enclove Key.
What makes this House unique
Weeki Wachee is a natural spring river with water temperatures year round at 72 degrees. Manatees thrive in the river due to its warm winter temperatures. We even seen dolphins in the river. The water in the river is crystal clear and enjoyed by canoes, tubers, paddle boarders, kayakers and motorboats. Weeki Wachee is centrally located to visit other places by car or boat. Weeki Wachee park is world famous for seeing the live mermaids. Tarpon Springs is south and has a wonderful waterfront greek village with great food and world famous sponge docks. Homosassa has a wildlife park and many great places to eat on the water. Crystal river is just north of homosassa and is also a great place to visit and explore.

Great River GetAWay
The house is Beautiful. Very close to the main river run. Plenty of room for your boat to dock. We all swam and used the rope swing in the canal behind the house. The downstairs has fridge and bathroom, so we mainly stayed downstairs the whole visit other than to sleep. Quick access to the Gulf. Kayaks were a splendid bonus. I would recommend this rental to anyone. Great Summer Vacation!
Truly Home Away From Home
My husband and I loved this home. The living room was so comfortable we really enjoyed evenings at "home" just watching TV. We used the outdoor amenities; smoked a brisket in the "green egg" and cooked a chicken on the grill. We kayaked and played corn hole. The downstairs bathroom was so convenient when returning "home" after being gone for hours and when we were hanging outside so we did not have to go up the steps. We were thrilled to see a manatee in the canal one day and we went to Linda Pederson park a little way down the road and saw many manatees on several occasions ! The only recommendation I would make is that a bright reading lamp be added to the living room because there is not enough lamp light to read in the evenings. We highly recommend this home to anyone !!
My husband and son and I are in town to celebrate my mother-in-law’s 80th birthday
The home is perfectly appointed for a short weekend .As we gathered with other out-of-town family in the evenings and relaxed .Hospitol Hole was an added bonus with the kayaks as we anticipated seeing the manatee .The water in fact was 74° what a great weekend !Thank you to the Gill family for allowing us to utilize your home :)
Great location, friendly town, relaxing get away
I can't give this enough stars. We had a family of 6 and there was something for everyone to do. The house was clean and comfortable. We felt right at home. We enjoyed eating at the local restaurants and going to the nearby beaches. Clearwater was only an hour away which was nice to spend the day and to be able to come back to a quiet setting. We will definitely be booking again so we can do all the things we weren't able to do this trip. Thank Lisa for a great place to stay!!
Location was great, an easy paddle to Hospital Hole. The property was very clean and well equipped.
Very comfortable home which we enjoyed. Had a good time kayaking and saw Manatees everytime we went which was our hope.
Nice house, very nicely furnished. We enjoyed using the canoe and kayaks and loved seeing the manatees. Owner was quick to respond to any questions we had.
Weeki Wachee Gardens and Water Park. Famous for their live mermaids is only a 5 minute drive rom the property.
