Area Information

Often referred to as the “Venice” of the Gulf of Mexico, Hernando Beach is one of the original, authentic, canal communities of Florida. Truly, a boaters paradise; and the last real community of backyard canals in Florida, offering direct access to the Gulf.


The properties around this northern, Eagles Nest community of Hernando Beach are all well maintained. Here, people take pride in ownership. This is a safe, quiet, waterfront neighborhood.
There are two separate canal systems in Hernando Beach. The northern canals are saltwater and have direct access to the Gulf of Mexico. The southern canals, which include the middle section, are mostly freshwater and do not have direct access to the Gulf. Hernando Hideaway IS on a canal with direct Gulf access. That, in and of itself, makes this tranquil, off-the-beaten-path destination desirable to boaters and fishing enthusiasts.
The clear turquoise waters surrounding Hernando Beach are dazzling! Clean rippled sand bars are plainly visible through clear waters around Hernando Beach. These flats are cherished scalloping sites during scalloping season and offer scuba adventuring any time of the year.
Hernando Hideaway is just a few short miles from the Weeki Wachee Wildlife Management Area, an 11,206-acre nature preserve with walking and cycling trails, spots for launching kayaks and fishing. Weeki Wachee Springs State Park has mermaid shows about every 15 minutes. Crystal River, a popular spot for kayaking and manatee sightings, is 20 minutes away. Busch Gardens is 90 minutes away. Tampa Bay Bucs stadium & Tampa Bay Rays are both 90 minutes. Disney is 2 hours.
Celebrated as Florida's Adventure Coast, the west coast offers freshwater rivers and springs, state forests, preserves, and Gulf waters, which provide opportunities for many land and water adventures for residents and tourists.
There is no shortage of entertainment, scenic beauty, or activities in this area! Hernando Beach is also known for its mouthwateri

About the owner: Hi! We’re your hosts, Joe & Josie, owners of Hernando Hideaway. We’re a husband and wife team, originally from Northeastern Pennsylvania. We invested in Hernando Hideaway (our first vacation rental property) in 2021. We spent a year fully renovating the home, and we’re truly excited for this new adventure!

We had our sights set on coastal property in an area that still had a small town feel. We fell in love with Hernando Beach, FL for the fresh seafood, the boating community, the locally owned restaurants, and of course, the weather. We are parents to a young son, thus we are passionate about creating a welcoming, safe, five-star, family-friendly waterfront vacation experience. We live in Michigan with our son and two dogs.

We love traveling and can't wait to travel more, once our son is older. Our favorite travel destination is Italy. We are foodies! We enjoy trying new restaurants and wines. We love connecting with guests from around the globe. Please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions. We’re sincerely happy to host you and we’re knowledgeable about the area. We’re confident that you will love Hernando Hideaway just as much as we do!

Guestbook comments from the host:

The house was beautiful! We came in December and the house was beautifully decorated for Christmas. There was a s’mores station fully stocked with all the ingredients and the kids loved that!! The pool was nice even in December because of the heater. I would definitely book this home again!!


Dec 2023

What can I say? Hernando Hideaway is a great place to say you had a vacation. When I say that Josie thinks of everything, Josie thinks of EVERYTHING! Her attention to detail and accommodating nature made us feel like we over packed. (We did) There were things she provided like toiletries and snacks that made us say wow. The labeling throughout the house made it really clear on how to use the house properly. Josie was very responsive in our communication. I was able to send a message while eating lunch out and she had a maintenance guy check/confirm something before we got back to place. My family throughly enjoyed our stay and we hope to be return visitors in the future.


Nov 2023

The stay was amazing The house was amazing The view amazing The owner’s are attentive Welcome packages s’mores at the fire pit I wish we could stay forever.


Oct 2023

A fantastic property and hosts. Enjoyed a weeklong vacation with family. The home had all the amenities I was looking for and more. Water access, pool, patios and a great indoor/outdoor space. Kitchen had all the accessories you'd ever need, and the Blackstone grill was an added bonus. Host was easy to reach, very responsive and made everything in the house and local area easy to find. I'd definitely stay here again.


Oct 2023

Josie was very respondent to our needs. The house has alot of nice touches that make the stay extra special. You can tell Joseph and Josie want to make sure their guests have a fabulous stay.


Oct 2023

This house is a treasure! Beautiful, clean and very comfortable! It has everything you could need and labeled. My children loved the pool and running in the large grassy yard. We loved the fire pit as well! My son (17) fished the entire trip while using the kayaks. He saw dolphins, manatee and caught different types of fish. This is a great hide away if you’re looking for some peace and quiet. We truly enjoyed our stay!


Sep 2023

Top notch hosts! Lovely home. Incredible amenities. Our stay was delightful. Thank you!


Aug 2023

We had a wonderful family vacation; our adult children decided we should make 'family vacation' an annual event thanks to Josie and her wonderful home-Ty. The area is beautiful, laid-back, and peaceful and the locals are friendly. Hernando Hideaway is beautifully appointed and offers many amenities. Josie thought of everything we could have wanted or needed to enjoy our time there.We enjoyed the pool, the fire pit complete with wood, marshmallows, long bamboo skewers, and S'more ingredients and played some of the many card and board games there.There are bait shops close by so we fished from the dock (bring your rods/reels); BTW, those fish outsmarted us plus we got to see manatees at dusk! There are kayaks, bicycles, pool toys, and a Nintendo Switch that our grandson greatly enjoyed there, plus there are good restaurants, a Botanical Garden and Weeki Wachee nearby.


Aug 2023

I cannot say enough about our stay at Hernando Hideaway. The home itself was gorgeous and stocked to perfection. You could not want for anything. Everything was labeled and you could find everything easily. Pots, glasses, smore stations. Nothing was skimped on. Pool was gorgeous. Tons to do. I have not a single complaint. Amazing.


Jul 2023

Cannot say enough great things about Hernando Hideaway! It is stocked with everything you need and then some for a fun and relaxing getaway for two families. Highlights for us were definitely the pool, bikes, and the dock for fishing. We enjoyed several paddles out as well. Josephine was quick to respond to any questions and addressing any needs, even kindly sending someone out after hours to look at AC AND refund a nights stay. We were blown away at the space, attention to detail, and customer service. 10/10 would recommend.


Jun 2023

We had a wonderful time in this home. It is freshly remodeled and gorgeous inside. There is plenty of room and it is well furnished. The hosts were very kind, friendly and immediately responsive. They had provided everything you could possibly want during your stay.We would definitely stay here again!


Apr 2023

I have to go on and on about the house. These home owners really knew how to make this stay be a home away from home. Perfect place for a family or a couple of friends to relax and have a great time.


Mar 2023

Josie and Joe have done a great job remodeling and making their home a great place for a Airbnb rental. The house was very clean, just remodeled, tastefully furnished and remodeled and all things were functioning great. There were so many things to do in the house both inside and out. We have been using home rental sites for years and this home has by far the most activities for different ages: from table games, to pool toys, to yard games, to a nicely heated pool. We travelled with our 8, 5, and 3 year old, and they just loved it.The home is within 12 min (peaceful ride) to the Weeki Wachee Springs, the Hospital Hole, and many other natural attractions as well as countless boating and kayak rental places. Great peaceful location but easy access to attractions.Another plus was the hosts were phenomenal. Super responsive and professional. Thank you again to them for giving our family a Top notch experience for sure. The boys had a great time and we are leaving with great memories!


Mar 2023

Incredible place! Wonderful home with cozy decor, plenty of sitting areas, beautiful kitchen, great pool, canal access for kayaking and jet skiing, and a friendly neighborhood! Great host with a quick response time. Our family enjoyed every bit of their stay. Thank you again Josephine!

The most thoughtfully prepared Rental

This was the most amazing and needed vacation in years! This Airbnb has more comforts of home than home does! There is everything you could possibly need and want and more. I can’t say enough good things about this place ️ To start, it’s absolutely beautiful. The pool is crystal clear and heated for those cooler nights. The s’mores is such a great touch especially for the kids but is adults loved it too! Each balcony offers something different from couches to swinging chairs. The kitchen has every gadget possible and all you need for cooking. You literally only need to bring your clothes and food and everything else is provided for you! The beds were SO COMFORTABLE and the towels were soft. We did everything from fishing to kayaking to throwing the football around in the yard and everyone enjoyed the indoor and outdoor games that were provided. It gave us so much family fun. If I could give 10 stars I would! Best stay, best place, and best hosts!

Amazing stay!

I’ve stayed at vacation rentals all over, and this is by far the most accommodating rental I’ve ever stayed in! They have everything you need and then some. The hosts reached out after our first day to assure everything was perfect for us. 10 out of 10 I highly recommend, we will definitely be making this our preferred rental in hernando beach!

Great home and location.

Our family was provided with all the information and recommendations needed to enjoy a 1 week stay at Hernando Hideaway. This home contains everything one needs. Lots of thoughtful extras! VERY clean and nicely decorated.The beds were comfortable. The pool and screened in porch were very enjoyable. The pool house was perfect and a fun hangout. The home location is awesome, and dockage for our two boats was a big plus.Joseph & Josie, went way beyond to make our week comfortable and memorable.We will be back!

AMAZING!!

Hernando Hideaway provided a luxurious retreat for our family! This home is spacious, well-equipped and tastefully designed. The layout allowed us to have group and private time. We felt welcomed by the owner’s careful attention to small details such as hospitality items in all the restrooms. The neighborhood location was perfect for kayaking, bike riding and visiting local restaurants. I highly recommend the Hernando Hideaway for your next vacation rental!
