Why Marilyn and Steve Peck chose Weeki Wachee Gardens

This home has been in my family for over 15 years. It is a beautiful, peaceful get away, where you can relax and be away from the hussle and bussle of everyday life. Weeki Wachee Springs is a natural spring which stays at 72 degrees all year round and is the home of many manatees in crystal clear waters. Take the Kayaks down the river and see various birds, fish, and manatee. Stop at the hospital hole and dive into the deepest part of the river. or hang out on the sand bars and swim with the manatees or snorkel.

This house has everything you need are want. They provided shampoo soap dish soap laundry detergent. Decorated so nicely and also a lot of room. The garage is huge. Dock your boat right outside to the dock. Boat ramp is very close within walking distance with a fun beach. Just a very short drive to weekie wachee mermaid show.

We didn't want to go home!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from an amazing stay on the river! The house was absolutely gorgeous; even better from what I expected from the pictures! It was very clean, well-stocked with everything we could possible need and very organized! There's games, a cool adult tricycle, tons of kitchen utensils (pots, pans, a griddle, toaster, blender) and so much more! The kayaks (6) and canoe were also awesome to have! There's also plenty of life jackets! It's less than a 10 minute kayak to the main river. If you take a right at the main river you'll find yourself at a cool rope swing followed by a beautiful beach area, then hospital hole, then Roger's Park where you can relax, or tie off and eat at the Upper Deck (where the food is great) before making the trek back upstream! Taking a left on the main river at the end of the canal will take you to bluer and clearer water! We found a tree branch 25 feet up that we jumped off of into the crystal clear water; that was the most fun I've had in a long time! We're from Clearwater and go to Weeki Wachee often. Of all the houses we've stayed at, this was definitely the nicest one! Plenty of space too! I couldn't get over how huge the garage was - it was nice to sit in the garage out of the sun while still looking out over the water. The dock was also spacious and the screened porch was a nice place to enjoy dinner or a cocktail and still view the water, away from the deer flies. We caught a few fish off the dock too and saw several manatee and turtles. If you're an out of towner you should definitely make a stop at buccaneer bay. Pack a cooler and make a day of it! Just get there early as it fills up by 8-9am most days in the summer. Just a few minutes’ drive to Buccaneer Bay, Winn Dixie and Walmart. There's a gas station 2 blocks away that we walked to a couple times, they have a few grocery items as well. So many fun things to do and see on the Weeki Wachee River and this house made it easy to enjoy them all with no stress! I would highly recommend renting this home! The owners were also very kind and helpful and quick to respond. You can tell they take pride in their home! One last word of advice: The nice houses on Weeki Wachee book up quickly each year so don't wait to book your stay!
