About the property

2 Bedroom, 1 Bath on Canal

The original owner of this property told us that she felt like she lived in a tree house. She was right! Enjoy lazy days under the shade of these big beautiful live oaks. Updated recently with new floors and furnishings, you will find our home very comfortable and peaceful.

This home with 2 spacious bedrooms and 1 bathroom sleeps 4 people comfortably. Queen size bed in master, full size bed in guest room. Kitchen is fully stocked with pots & pans, utensils, dishes, and enough "essentials" in bathroom and kitchen to get your vacation started.

Once you get settled in, go out and enjoy the outdoors. The pristine Weeki Wachee River is home to an abundance of wildlife. You'll see sheepshead, mullet, blue crabs, and of course manatees. I counted 10 manatees one early morning leaving the spring at the end of our canal! And of course tropical birds, hawks, and eagles. Use my kayaks (2) or canoe (1) or bring your boat and tie up to my dock. Or you can rent a jon boat or kayaks from the marina across the road from the entrance to my neighborhood. Take the provided beach chairs, beach towels, and umbrella to the beach at Rogers Park, on the river (2 min away) or Pine Island, on the gulf (10 min).

My family and I have been spending weekends in this home for 10 years. It should have everything you need to enjoy your time here. And if you're like me and don't want to carry your bags up the stairs...put it all in the elevator and send it up!

perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Our recent stay in June was great. The house was beautiful and updated, great to have the under the house place to park and hang out. The kayaks were great to use and the canals were a great place to be. I want to thank Dawn for being so great and coming to help with the storage room door problem we had- it was nice to meet her. There wasn't a thing I needed during our stay. There are stores close enough, and a great little produce stand nearby too that had the best corn and watermelon I've ever had. There are many things to do in the area- we went up to Crystal River for the day and I did get to see manatees but the best was when I was walking down the stairs from the house and there was a mother and her baby in the canal right in front of our dock! So, if anyone is looking for something different to do in Florida go to the Weeki Wachee Gardens to "Like a Tree House". You'll be happy you did.

Perfect Little Tree House!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here for a few days in May-June. We had THE BEST time. Everything we needed was provided at the house. Dawn has the house decorated so cute and it was just the right size for us 4. We had so much fun kayaking and playing in the water right in our backyard. We even saw a manatee and her calf! It was so peaceful and nice to sit outside up on the deck or to cook-out down on the patio. We loved having the elevator so we didn't have to schlep all our stuff up and down the stairs. Definitely would book this again!

The home was beautiful and very clean. The location was convenient to the river and Rogers park. We used the home’s kayaks daily. Very relaxing. Best vacation ever!

Wonderful Time at the Tree House

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for a long weekend and we had a great time! The neighborhood is quiet and the house was very clean and has everything you need and more! We brought our jet skis and mopeds and it was so convenient that there was plenty of space to park. We loved being able to fish from the dock every day, and having the fire pit and grill were a huge plus!

Another Wonderful March at the Tree House

  • 5 of 5

Dawn has truly created Heaven in the Tree House! She must have a secret on how to pick the best renters because the place was as pristine as it was last year. They painted the main living area a soft gray and it looks amazing. We had quite a few guests throughout the month and everyone was impressed. Always love working with you, Dawn!
