Trust me, you want to be on the main river with direct access to the clear waters of the Weeki Wachee. Roger's Park is a quick row up river, and just around the corner from that is Hospital Hole where manatees love to congregate. Our house is one of the newer homes on the river with balconies galore and can accommodate your large group with 4 spacious bedrooms and an elevator (only for elderly/handicapped use)! Bring your boat to tie up or use the 7 single kayaks and two 3 person canoes provided

We may be biased, but we think this is the best place on the river ;)

We are directly on the crystal clear waters of the Weeki Wachee River! And we're literally 3 river bends down river from Roger's Park and just up river from that is the famous "Hospital Hole" where the manatees congregate in droves. We are far enough down river that you are more likely to see manatees swim right by the house than most other properties... quite frequently actually! There's even a nice wide step-out area on the river to get into the water for swimming or kayaking or boating - directly from the back yard.

I am often asked if the water is clear where we are. Yes! The water is definitely crystal clear. The bottom is not white sand like further up river, but when a dolphin or manatee swim by, you can see them clear as day. I was literally swimming and cooling off while working outside and a manatee came right up to me. I could see it's face in the water from 10 feet away and then it swam right under me rubbing my feet! Shortly after, a dolphin swam by as well... still amazes me to watch dolphins and manatees swim by the back yard.

This is one of those rare newly built houses on the river, but it's not just a more modern build. This house was built with luxuries, like the granite in the kitchen was imported from Italy... yeah literally imported from Italy. There's a 3rd story master bedroom suite with an outside balcony - the views from up here are spectacular! The two bedroom on the second floor both have balconies. The second floor balcony is big enough for everyone The multiple balconies make it easy to spot the manatees swimming below, or sit back at sunset and watching the sky light up like a canvas. This house even boasts an elevator that can be used by request for the elderly or handicapped! The outside has beautiful concrete interlocking pavers connecting the front yard with the back via a walkway to the patio on the river.

We are located on a deeper part of the river for better fishing and tying your boat up - right from the back patio... and deep enough that you can literally jump in and do a cannon ball, enjoying the natural spring fed waters to keep you cool in the summer... or warm in the winter months. The water temperature is 74 degrees all year round!

Weeki Wachee River is an amazingly beautiful natural wonder! You have over 6 miles to boat, canoe or kayak up river, taking in the peaceful sounds of the water, birds and the wind blowing through the trees. You'll experience manatee on the river, more often than not, but that's not the extent of the amazing wildlife. We've watched a family of deer cross the river right in front of our kayaks - what a treat that was! We've sat and enjoyed river otters playing with each other like little kids. If you're lucky, you'll even spot an occasional dolphin enjoying the river... there's just something special about watching a dolphin swim right in front of the house. There are vast species of birds, like the wood storks, blue herons, egrets, bald eagles, ospreys, double-crested cormorant, but that's just the tip of the ice bird... the bird diversity is phenomenal with 273 native and 8 exotic species in the area.

If you travel down river, the Gulf of Mexico is just over a mile away. The short ride to the Gulf is worth it! The open views shouldn't be missed. And it goes without saying, the wonderfully diverse fishing options can keep any angler busy. So go intercoastal or deep sea fishing, scalloping (when in season), dolphin sightseeing, or just sit there and wait to watch the sunset without a single thing blocking your view.

The world famous Weeki Wachee Springs State Park is a five mile drive away. Make sure to enjoy the mermaid show, it's great for kids and adults too. Don't miss the guided river boat tour, it's worth it. Buccaneer Bay is an add on ticket where the family can enjoy swimming - right next to the head of the spring, or relax on their white sand beach or have some fun speeding down the giant water slides.

Alfred A McKethan Pine Island Park has a wonderful beach that's great for long walks, sunbathing, building sand castles, watching the sunset... you know, all of the beachy stuff. And it's less than a 10 minute drive.
