House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 6 Sleeps
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
About the Owner
(7 traveler reviews)
Very nice place and plenty of room. Everything you need and then some. Great price for huge house. Great communication with owner huge pool.
Everything wonderful - best pool ever!
Stayed here with family and friends for a couple of weeks
Property is as shown/described, everything was wonderfully comfortable and well thought out
The pool was fantastic - great size and depth, clean and we had such fun
The entire place was well appointed and kitted out - laundry facilities super-useful and overall we couldn't have asked for more
Communication with the owner was exactly as you'd want - we had no problems and would highly recommend (and we have) and would love to stay again
Thanks for a great vacation stay
It looks even better in person.
We were very pleased with this rental. The layout of the house was well thought out. The master suite is at one side of the house and the other two bedroom and bathroom on the other. The main bathroom has a door which opens up to the pool, a very useful feature. The living room door fold back to allow easy access to and from the lanai. We had some issues with the pool, but only because it had gotten so cold at night. We call John, the manager, and he was very prompt in getting the issue solved. Steve, the owner, was always very helpful and quick to respond to my email. We were sad to leave, but hopefully will return next year. Karen
We had a fantastic time in this wonderful house. It's big, very tastefully decorated and has a lovely pool - much bigger than the pools at homes we've stayed at before and that really made a difference. I noticed another reviewer has said it has the Wow Factor, and that sums it up. It's the nicest place we've stayed in Florida so far anyway.
The house was so clean and bright and very well equipped. We had a great time and can't recommend it enough! The owner was very helpful, with lots of information about the house and the surrounding area.
Highlights of our trip were swimming everyday and swimming with manatees!!
Out of the way
We found the house to be away from major attractions, 1hour to 2hours drive to all major spot like Clearwater 1hr, Disney 1 1/2 drive and St.Pete's beach 2hr drive. The weather is a lot cooler then other parts of Florida because of being so far north. The house needs more dishes and has a nice pool other that pretty normal.
The villa was lovely - good furnishings and spotlessly clean. The Villa was in a very quiet area but was close to attractions, shops and restaurants. This is an excellent area to use as a base to travel the west and central parts of Florida. Saw manatees on canoe trip, went horse riding in the forest. Will return again one day soon.
Activity and Interests
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!
If you’d like to travel further afield and see some of the other attractions of Central
Florida they’re fairly easy to reach too. Some sample distances are:
Tampa (and Busch Gardens)- 42 miles
Homosassa Springs state wildlife park - 26 miles
Orlando - 83 miles
Clearwater Beach - 38 miles
