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

Walt & Mary Kay,

We really enjoyed the stay at your beautiful home. We have been coming up there for years during opening scallop season, and your home by far is the nicest, cleanest, and has that your home kind of feeling. We will be returning as your guest again very soon.

The area is layed back and wonderful. Walt and Kay were there to answer any question and we felt more like honored guests than renters. This maybe the friendliest place in the world,neighbors, restaurant folks,even the guys in the marinia were as helpful as could be. We hope to go back often and soon

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.

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.
