2 Bedroom | 1 And A Half Bath | Sleeps 6

Welcome to Tina's Little House on the River, our amazing crystal clear waterfront property provides the ultimate vacation getaway. If location is important to you, then this is the place to be. This 2 story, 2 bedroom, 1-1/2 bath home (sleeps 6) sits directly on the beautiful Weeki Wachee River and is within walking distance to the local beach (Rogers Park),restaurant (Upperdeck), and the marina. Just a few minutes from the house is Pine Island, another popular local beach, also hiking trails and many restaurants to choose from in 1 to 5 miles from the house.

This property offers guests a wide range of entertainment; from bringing your own boat and launching it at Rogers Park boat ramp(1 block from property)and tying it to the private floating dock at the property, or use the paddle board, canoe or kayaks(that I provide)to explore upstream to Hospital Hole and beyond to the springs, or downstream to the Gulf of Mexico.

If the river life is what you're seeking to experience, look no further ..... take a seat, relax and let the river wash away your cares. Enjoy watching the kayakers paddle by and looking for manatees swimming below them. The manatees truly are gentle giants and seeing them up close and personal is an experience you'll never forget.
