About Mary Roush

We purchased the house around August of 2017, we live next door to our vacation rental, my wife and I are semi retired. 14 years ago when my wife and I were married we purchased properties in which we lived in some of them while we remodeled them, sold them or rented them out. We have lived in many parts of Florida and this is where we have settled and will retire here, we love the area and we love all of the people on the island. It is not just an area, it is a way of life out here, most everyone knows each other and boating, fishing, scalloping is what we all do out here. Everyone has personality and hospitality and I would not want to live anywhere else.

Mary Roush purchased this house in 2017

Why Mary Roush chose Weeki Wachee Gardens

the house sits on a canal West of the Shoal Line Rd Bridge, just around the corner from The Upper Deck Restaurant, idle speed of 15 minutes to the Gulf, there are manatees . We have 4 Kayaks 2 of which are New.

Our home is a site built home it is not a mobile.

Huge walk in shower, handicap handrails.

Jet Tub

What makes this house unique

If you catch my husband on a fishing day, he might could take you fishing with him on his 2016 33rd Strike Group Bay Cat 18ft. (maybe just for a little gas money)

We made memories

  • 5 of 5

Oh my gosh Kay and Walt were the perfect host. House was fantastic, beds were comfy and the house had everything we needed. It's has a gas grill we used twice and everything we needes in the kitchen. Kayaks and bikes were included with the house. The WW river and James park is a short paddle away. We saw manatees and fished right in front of the house. We will be back to visit Kay and Walt for sure, loved them and the house.

Amazing home

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 couldn't have been happier with our stay. Walt and Kay are great people, very helpful and it was nice having them so close by. The house was clean, private and had everything we needed. We were first timers to Weeki Wachee and didn't know what to expect, but they made it feel like home. We can't wait to come back again.

Great neighbourhood with a quiet peaceful view of the canal.

  • 5 of 5

Our hosts Mary and Walt Roush greeted us and made us feel welcome from day one. The neighbourhood was friendly and we were included in get togethers. We found the house to be clean, nicely decorated and comfortable. All the amenities were just like home. The view from the deck allowed us to see fish, manatees and a variety of other wildlife. We recommend this rental.
