Why not treat yourself to a stay in this luxury home on Florida's Gulf Coast? Set right
on Ray Floyd's Oak Hills golf course, this house overlooks the 11th tee. Unlike many
other golf homes though, this location is secluded enough to enable you to watch the
golfing action without feeling that you’re being watched in turn.
Set near the end of a cul-de-sac this home benefits from fronting onto a road which is
almost as quiet as the golf course it backs onto, so if it’s a tranquil location and a
peaceful vacation you’re looking for, this is probably as good as it gets!
With a 1/3 acre lot, and a large 30’ x 15’ swimming pool that’s designed for swimming
rather than just splashing, this home looks like the real deal from the minute you pull
into the drive. It also has a pool spa, a large lanai area and a beautifully manicured
garden to add that touch of luxury you certainly won’t find with every rental home.
When you need a change of scenery the local area offers lots to do. The beautiful Pine
Island beach is just minutes away, golf is just seconds away, and there are plenty of
other sporting activities nearby such as cycling, tennis and fishing. Once you’ve burned
off a few calories there are lots of restaurants and coffee shops nearby. And if you're
not the sporty type you can browse the many big-name stores that keep opening up in
Known also as the Nature Coast, this area is a haven for wildlife. You can visit
numerous state parks within a couple of hours’ drive, but there’s lots to see much
closer to home than that. It’s entirely possible to sit next to the pool and have a
gopher tortoise, or a sandhill crane walk by within feet of you, and a kayak trip down
the nearby Weeki Wachee River offers the chance to see abundant bird and aquatic life,
including manatees and otters. A few minutes further away at Pine Island beach you’ve a
good chance to see dolphins and turtles too.
More ‘mythical’ creatures are on view at the nearby Weeki Wachee Springs and Buccaneer
Bay Water Park where you can watch the Mermaid Show, or swim in the crystal clear spring-
fed waters which remain at a constant 74.2 degrees throughout the year.
Pine Island with its lovely beach, and famous sunsets is just a short drive away, and if
you’re there at sunset you may find yourself witnessing an outdoor wedding ceremony, as
it’s a popular romantic spot for tying the knot!
Spring Hill is a fast developing town in its own right too, with an ever-growing
assembly of household-name shops, and lots of restaurants to choose from, as well as a
full range of coffee shops. As you’d expect the area also has a range of other forms of
entertainment such as cinema and bowling.
If you like sport and outdoor activities there’s plenty to do nearby. Obviously golf is
just seconds away, but fishing, cycling, tennis and various other activities are
available within a short drive. There are free tennis courts and well-organised cycle
trails with reasonably priced cycle hire close by. Don’t worry that you have to organise
everything in advance though - we make sure to send you a guide on how to find all these
places before you arrive for your vacation, and we’ve sought out all the best ones at
the cheapest rates too, so you’ll be able to enjoy your vacation like you’ve been
visiting Spring Hill for years!
