Description from owner

Enjoy your next vacation, snow bird flight, or stay in Florida at our unique Gulf Front property where the view is incomparable.

Walk out in the cool morning air and enjoy the fresh sea spray of the Gulf as you watch dolphins and manatees swim feet from the shore and along our sandy beach. At night, enjoy the unique "green flash" as the sun sets. During the day, the back yard is naturally shaded by rare Chinese elms and a magnificent oak. The backyard offers a view of the full Gulf and a natural wildlife preserve that meanders out into the Gulf along a mile and half long peninsula. The Gulf view is protected by a no wake zone for boats, which offers safety for swimming and interesting conversation.

Beyond the daily activities and restful hours at the house, the location is ideal for day a variety of excursions. You are 10 minutes away from the natural spring water Buccaneer Water Park; Weeki Wachee Spring & the famous Mermaid show; 45 minutes to Busch Gardens; 40 minutes to Hermossa Springs, home of the Manatee; 2 hours to Disney, Sea World, and Universal; and all the diversity of Tampa is just a hour away on the new, scenic Sun Coast Highway. Within 10 minutes is fine Italian. seafood, and fusion dining, dinner theater, mini golf, golf, malls, deep sea fishing, and many local restaurants of all persuasions.

About the area

The community is friendly, welcoming, and peaceful but with ample activities when you feel adventurous. And of course, there is a wide selection of restaurants, dinner theater, and mini golf nearby. A short ride takes you to Busch Gardens and Tampa. If golf is your game, there are 17 challenging golf courses in Hernando County to choose from, including World Woods, which is consistently ranked one of the best public courses in America. Entertainment options abound in Hernando County, including the world-famous mermaids at Weeki Wachee Springs State Park. The adjacent natural spring water park, Buccaneer Bay, is a blast. You can ride along a horse trail in Brooksville, see the famous Hermossa Springs, or use our top of the line canoes to paddle right from our beach to the pristine river in Weeki Wachee, Or, take our bikes on a on road tour of the neighborhoods or a off-road thrill ride through the nature preserve and gypsum mine water pools the size of large lakes. Bring a wind surfer and ride the wind all day in the gulf. And of course, you can swim at our beach.

“Paradise Found!”

Reviewed 6 Aug 2015

This house has a magnificent view of the Gulf of Mexico. Never a bad sunset. I put on water shoes and water right into the water for a swim. Your Kayaks will allow touring the water of the nature coasts, keep a look out for manatee and dolphin. Great fishing too. I finished my day by walking my kayak into the backyard. The accommodations are substantial with 3 full bathrooms and 3 full bedrooms. The 20 by 20 sunroom has two futons for additional sleeping! The living room, dining room and kitchen is open concept. Great for a getaway to bring family and friends together. Great restaurants in the area....Brian's Place, Leslie's Dinner, and Bella Napoli are all in a 10 minute drive of the house. For a quick pizza I can recommend Matoli's pizza right on Hernando Beach. We were there for five days and there was much to enjoy. Planning a return trip shortly what a gem.....

“Amazing Trip”

Reviewed 13 Jul 2015

The house was spectacular. Very clean when we arrived, with lots of room and a beautiful backyard. The back door is 25 feet from the ocean and the view is great.

Owner's reply: It was a pleasure having you stay at the home. We are delighted to hear you enjoyed yourself and hope to see you again sometime soon.
