Why David Buck chose Hernando Beach

I grew up visiting this area with my grandparents as a child, fishing and being on the water is part of me. This home has given me many memories through the years and I am more than happy to allow others to do the same.

What makes this house unique

This home is situated on a westward view of the Gulf of Mexico, as ideal location to watch the sunset. The home is fortunate to have a very large and deep saltwater canal and most importantly a private beach area that is unheard of in this oceanfront community.

Warmer than Jersey!

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable home on nice canal, with small beach and fishing dock. On warmer days we were able to enjoy the upper deck. Our fur babies were happy with their fenced yard. David was easy to get in touch with. Kitchen was well stocked! All rooms were decorated well. There is an enclosed porch with table, chairs and TV!

Resident cats were not the least interested in our furry critters. Restaurants and shopping nearby. Parks and walking paths, beaches, attractions are certainly available too.

Thank you David.

My family stayed here over the Memorial Day weekend and it was FANTASTIC. The home is near Pine Island Beach, Weeki Wachee Spings, and park and right along the crystal clear water. The house itself was much bigger than we thought and felt like home away from home. Since there was little artificial lighting in the area, my favorite part was creeping up to the roof deck to enjoy the stars.

Mr. David Buck is also very responsive and wonderful to work with! He even reached out to us to make sure we made it in to the house okay. We're already excited to plan another long weekend out there!

Quiet and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Good location on the end of a waterway so no neighbors on one side. The house was comfy and well appointed. Had everything we needed. Great for dogs too. Our dachshund spent half the trip chasing lizards and the other half watching me fish. Nice upper deck area where you can see the gulf a bit. Comfortable screen porch too. Our only complaint is that we had to leave. Had a great week there. If you don't mind a little driving this is a great place to stay away from the tourists while still being close enough to the usual FL attractions.

Quite place. Clean. It was perfect for the 3 of us having our own space. Seen lots of fish. Enough to do in the area to be as busy as you like or just sit back. We'd go back.
