Tranquil waterfront home, right on the Gulf of Mexico. Private heated pool, spa with spillover waterfall, Tiki Hut with rocking chairs, thoughtful interior decor, amenities galore! Kayaks and lifejackets included. A 10 minute paddle to open sea <3 (time it for sunset, your experience will be breathtaking!). The home is a vacation all on its own, but we also strive to provide local recommendations for an impeccable experience. Welcome to Florida's Nature Coast!

The space
Gulf coast sunsets are amazing. Gulf coast sunsets with a water view are spectacular. Add in a festive Tiki Hut with rocking chairs, waterfront pool and hot tub, and you'll experience your new favorite place to find your bliss.

>The home:
As you step inside, you’ll first notice the wide open space of this home. The kitchen has been tastefully updated, a dedicated beautiful dining area, family room with 65" smart TV with streaming apps, what we’ve deemed the most comfortable couch ever, board games, sliding doors that open all the way up for a seamless indoor/outdoor transition.

Check out that old school arcade with 300+ nostalgic games included!

Master suite is on one side of the home, guest bedrooms are on the other. Master bath appointed with his and hers closets, and a low lip entry, accessible shower. Sliding doors will take you to the pool area. Master bed is tension relieving memory foam for a fantastic night’s sleep. 43" TV with streaming apps.

Additional king bedroom with memory foam mattress.

"Kids' room” with full sized bunk beds big enough for kids of all ages, and kids at heart. Kids books, coloring books and crayons included. Kids' color bath bombs and bubble packets provided (check the guest bath closet)! Check out the moving galaxy nightlight.

Office nook/den also converted into a small, but functional additional sleeping area with twin daybed. Note- the door to this space is frosted glass, no closet area, but small dresser storage.

>Outside:
Step outside the family room to find a screened in porch with a couch and glider, perfect for viewing our amazing sunsets. Beyond the porch awaits a large heated private pool with spa attached and waterfall spillover. *No additional charge for pool/spa heat!!*

Just beyond the sparkling pool is our thatched roof tiki hut, perfect for an evening glass of wine, ice cold sweet tea, or throwing a line in to catch a few fish. Many guests have enjoyed morning coffees looking over the serene water.

The private floating dock awaits your choice of rented water vessel, or your fishing lines (poles, chairs, and nets provided). Inflatable tandem kayak, 4 individual 10' kayaks, lifejackets included. Keep a close eye on the water, other than a plethora of fish and turtles, dolphins, manatees and jellyfish make their way into the canals at times. Kayak, water, pool use at your own risk.

This property is waterfront- please supervise children along seawall and dock area. There is not a gate to the dock or sea wall.

>WiFi:
200mbps for streaming, working from "home" and remote schooling!

>Pool:
Beautiful private heated pool and spa with waterfall spillover overlooking beautiful waterfront backyard. No charge to heat the pool, pool is kept at 85 degrees. Pool heat may get a little challenged if days/nights are below 50, which thankfully doesn't happen too often around here!

**Please note**: Our pool is professionally cleaned once a week. It is not screened in to maintain the integrity of the amazing waterfront view, this can come with the blowing of leaves, visiting of our resident flock of ducks and other natural happenings that can create a bit of debris in the water. If you feel it needs additional professional attention, I can set up an additional cleaning for a fee.

>Boaters welcome!
Have a boat? Bring it! Blue Pelican Marina is minutes away, dock at "home" and enjoy Gulf waters at your convenience. Blue Pelican also offers boats for rent, and trailer storage if you bring your own.

>Day Trips:
2 hours to Disney Parks and Orlando attractions, 1 hour from Busch Gardens, and Tampa Attractions. Closest airport is Tampa International Airport, or 2 hours from Orlando (MCO). A little over an hour to Clearwater beach, 1.5 to St Pete's Beach, 2 hours to Siesta Key. Wonderful day trips await! Stay outside of the hustle and bustle at your own private retreat.

>Accessibility:
This ranch style home is fully accessible with no stairs at entrances, low lip showers and wide open hallways. Grab bar to enter pool, however hot tub does not have accessibility features. There are steps to get into the Tiki Hut, and steps and a ramp to get on to the dock.

>We manage every aspect of our home personally, we do not rely on big company management to oversee anything. We have incredibly high standards for communication, cleanliness, and organization- and that can only truly be found by owner managed properties. <3

>Good to know:
In Florida, near water- insects (mosquitos, palmetto bugs, love bugs, many more), lizards, frogs and geckos are a very common thing. We have the house professionally treated for insect pests, but please try to keep doors/windows closed so they don't venture inside for a visit. Nature happens, but we take every preventative measure possible.

>Camera disclosure:
Our property is monitored by several outdoor security cameras, as described and disclosed in the listing. Requesting to book indicates consent to this security feature, and agreement not to tamper with the cameras.

>Neighborhood:
This is a very quiet neighborhood- loud music, parties, and late night shenanigans will not be welcome. If you feel that keeping it chill would be difficult for your vacation purposes, I invite you to explore other listings.

Where you’ll be

Hernando Beach, Florida, United States

Quiet gulf canal community. Marina a few blocks away for boat rental (park at our private dock!). Several fantastic restaurants, lively watering holes, grocery and other conveniences nearby. Pine Island Beach, a small beach area favorite of locals just a short 15 minute drive, Weeki Wachee State Park nearby for kayaking, swimming, and seasonally open water park in crystal clear spring waters. Many fishing docks around (our favorite is Jenkins Creek- sometimes it is full of manatees!), however with your private dock and tiki hut, we catch our share of fish directly from the home. Fishing equipment, chairs and bait provided.

This community is small, safe and very quiet. This is not a party destination. Please respect quiet hours, please no street parking.

Several stays later, we know we found a magical place and have absolutely enjoyed hosting families from all over. We are here to answer questions and provide an impeccable vacation experience.
