Description from owner

LOOKING FOR A NICE WARM POOL? YOU FOUND IT! If you are looking for a very nice home, super clean, wonderful location, etc. You just got lucky!! Check our feedback, we care, we are local and you will love this house!!! Check the photos out! The forecast for the winter up north is cold!!!!!!


You are now looking at the best value in Hernando Beach. Compare our home, the features and price you will see it is the best deal going. A perfect place to get away for a week, a month, or several months. All you need to pack are your clothes and personal items (fishing tackle and your boat if you have one).

The kitchen, master bedroom, Dining Area, Screened Lanai & Pool, outdoor entertaining areas, sea wall and dock all offer views of the main channel that leads directly into the Gulf of Mexico. You can enjoy your favorite water sport from your own dock. In the evening and early morning can watch the shrimp boats come and go. Or you can stand in the solar heated pool enjoying your favorite beverage watching the boats leaving for the flats or gulf. Bring your boat and follow them out as you go out to see the beautiful sunset on the Gulf of Mexico. You can charter a fishing boat for guided inshore and offshore adventures from the nearby marina, venture offshore for grouper fishing on a party boat, rent a boat, pontoon boat, jet ski, or kayak locally. You will have a 24 foot floating dock right outside the back door. You can also fish off the dock (all kinds of fish come through the channel with the change of tides), or just relax on the back deck and enjoy the slow pace of Florida living. This place is perfect for the naturalist, birdwatcher, and photographer.

If you enjoy people watching you will enjoy sitting on the outside deck at one of the local restaurants watching the boats, kayaks, canoes, boats, fish and in the winter Manatees going past on the crystal clear Weeki Wachee River while you enjoy lunch, dinner or your favorite beverage. All of this is 10 minutes from your front door.

For a change of pace, there are numerous golf courses nearby, including some championship courses. Two of our local public courses are rated 9th & 48th in the country. With over 20 to choose from you will be busy if you're a golfer. If you want to visit Florida, especially if you want to escape the long, cold Northern winter - and stay in a countryside, waterfront, but convenient location...this is the place to be.

The home has a premium king size bed in the master bedroom. Each of the two other bedrooms have two premium twin beds. The master bath has both a walk in shower and a oversize soaking tub. The hall bath (between the two smaller bedrooms) has a tub shower. The large laundry room has a washer and dryer. There are two TV's each with a DVD player & VCR. The family room also has a complete stereo with Bose speakers and there is an additional stereo on the lanai for your enjoyment while relaxing in the pool, rear deck or on the covered & screened Lanai.

A popular pastime in the late afternoon is watching the shrimp boats going past the home on their way to work in the Gulf of Mexico. If it is not shrimp boats, or crab boats going past the home there are the local boaters alway something to watch!

Beds: 1 King Bed, 4 Twin Beds

About the area

Hernando Beach is a rural, residential Gulf Coast town with world class fishing. The area is famous as Tarpon Country-but there's grouper, snapper, snook, and redfish, too). Nature and wildlife preserves surround Hernando Beach. The beautiful sunsets, white sand beach of Pine Island, numerous fishing parks and the nearby Weeki Wachee Springs Water Park make it an ideal vacation or winter retreat. Enjoy fine dining in the town's local establishments (seafood like you have only dreamed about!) or in the national restaurant chains nearby on US 19. Convenient shopping also abounds on US 19. A new Super Walmart is 10-minutes from your front door. The home is located 60+ minutes from Tampa International Airport, and 90+ minutes from Orlando, Disney World, Universal Studios, Wet & Wild, Sea World and Busch Gardens. So you can still "do it all" and have a quiet, clean, comfortable home when it is time to unwind. After all what is a vacation if you don't relax some?

Great house for all you like to do on the water. Enjoyed all three weeks we were there. Boating, fishing and swimming every day, come back to a great pool and beautiful house for family dinner and down time. If you are looking for a great place to relax, and love being on the water this is the place for you.

Owner's reply: Thanks Lynn, I am glad all enjoyed their vacation time. John

We have rented many nice houses before and consider our expectations rather high. This house has met or raised most of our "being very spoiled and picky" expectations! - The neighborhood is very quiet and private. - Location has Walmart for groceries and several restaurants for food within 5 minute car ride - Weekie Wachie river (with kayak rentals) access within a few minutes car ride - Parking the car and trailer next to the house without any problems - powerboat launching from boat ramp within sight of house - daily powerboat and own kayaks storage, docking and launching from your own floating dock could not be easier! - heated pool and tons of covered seating within screened in porch - spacious house and rooms with great floor plan for privacy as well as entertainment - super equipped and comfortable kitchen with EVERITHING you could possibly need - LAST not LEAST a VERY demanding German wife loved the house especially because it was not only super comfortable but also VERY, VERY CLEAN (including the appliances)!!! Without any reservation, this house is a keeper and deserves 5+ STARS! P.S.: It has reasonable speed wifi internet connection throughout the house good enough to browse the web and check emails (however marginal to stream movies or do remote computer networking) ... However, the flat screen TV's and DVD players with a large free DVD movie collection available in several rooms make more than up for that.

Owner's reply: Thank you for the kind words......... Anne and I work very hard to make this home as we would wish if we were the guest in the home. Knowing our efforts are appreciated make the effort worth while. Again, thank you and please come back again!!!!

“Great first experience!”

My husband and I stayed in this home for a little over a week. It was our first time renting a vacation home, but it certainly won't be the last! This property was very well maintained. The home and the patio areas were clean and even better than the pictures indicated. We didn't have any issues, but the owner was very responsive to the couple of questions we had. We had a wonderful, relaxing time - we sure miss that pool!

Owner's reply: I am so glad you enjoyed our home and your time in what we call "paradise". Please come back again and we do look forward to your next stay. You left our home in great condition! It was almost like you were not there.... If you ever need a reference from a "landlord", just ask. You were what Anne and I try to be, a respectful guest! That says a great deal about you as a couple. Thanks, John & Anne PS: The pool is still warm, even after our cold snap.........

“Hernando Beach”

Reviewed 10 Jul 2012

This place was UNBELIEVABLE! The peace and quiet in the evenings...except for watching the shrimp boats go out between 5:30 & 7:30pm...and you could hear them come in at 3:30am...which was neat to watch and drink coffee...Also the pool was magnificent...I am a beach person...there are smaller beaches nearby but we drove to Tampa and Clearwater in which the drive was not that bad...This place had all the comforts of home!!!!!! Once your find your way around...everything is really close by...Walmart, convenient stores...on the weekends the canal is super busy and it was more "FUN" to watch all the boaters and Jet ski's go by then going to the beach! Also the owner, our sea captiain for a day, John, was absolutely wonderful. We arriveded late but had his cell and home number to reach him and he was very helpful and thorough. We would lvoe to stay here again and would love to move here...if you dont have a GPS it is hard to find, but it is one of the BEST HIDDEN PLACES TO STAY!

Owner's reply: Susan, I am so happy you had a great time.... Hernando Beach is such a special place.... please come back again and we will look forward to your next visit...... John

We recently stayed in this rental while in Florida and were extremely impressed with the cleanliness of the property. Everything was there for us. The only things we had to purchase were groceries and fishing bait. Loved sitting outside in the morning having coffee and watching the shrimp boats come in from the ocean. Quiet & Relaxing. . . Will definately recommend it to our friends and family!!

“Review of home”

We rented this house between Christmas and the New Year and were VERY happy. The house is clean, functional and spacious. The pool is nice and has a great view over the canals. The home is a short distance from the Gulf and all the nature parks. Shopping is close by ... and also the Mermaids show! The owners are very helpful and friendly and good people.

This is the first time we had ever rented a house to stay in while on vacation (we always stayed in hotels) and I have to say that out of all the choices/options we were very very lucky at what we chose. A week is not enough time to spend here. Our kids loved fishing off the dock while watching the porpoise and stingray swim past. The setting is ideal for a real vacation away from the hustle and bustle of your typical spring break chaos. The owner was more than helpful and went out of his way to make sure we had a good time and everything we needed. We miss being there already and can't wait to come back! =)

Wow! This is a great place to relax, unwind, and kick back. If you are into the "action" of a city, the hustle and all that this is not your place. This home is just that, a home...clean, well set up for you to enjoy.... the water is the key, shrimp boats and most of the other boat traffic go past the home. From the pool or the Lanai.......you have a front row seat. Weeki Wachee river is less than 5-minutes, the famous Pine Island is about 15-minutes. Don't feel in the middle of no where....you are but all you need is less than 10-minutes... Super Walmart, Publix, Target, etc.

This is, no joke a deal....... Hernando Beach is wonderful, quiet, peaceful, calm and laid back......this house has vacation all over it.
