About Diane Willcox

I am a Florida native and have a passion for the water. I love to boat, snorkel, walk the beach. I am married with two sons and four grandkids.

Diane Willcox purchased this house in 2007

Why Diane Willcox chose Hernando Beach

We purchased this home in Henando Beach because of the location. Hernando Beach still resembles the old Florida. Quaint shops, marinas and friendly neighbors. The home is on a deep water canal that leads directly to the Gulf.

What makes this house unique

We love to watch the sunsets and all the boaters going out to the Gulf for the day. Pelicans, otters and dolphins can be seen playing in the canal. We spend many weekends in the summer here with family and friends. We always experience the Weeki Wachee River by canoe a few times a year. We have seen manatees with their young, eagles soaring above.

Clean and neat

  • 5 of 5

I spent 3 weeks at the property with my service dog and cat. I had a wonderful time being right on the water. I saw bottle nose porpoises, manatees and many types of fish. I caught blue crabs off the dock and fished everyday.

The house was very well equipped, much better than most I have rented in the past. I enjoyed the Hernando Beach area so well that I purchased a house while vacationing at Dianne’s home.

Thank you so much for a GREAT visit.

Our family had a great time here. We were out on the water every day and enjoyed our stay.

The house was great for our family. We had a small issue at first but the owner was so fast in having it taken care of. We have stayed in this area for the past three years but our first time in this home. Loved the house and the location.

Owner's Response: Hi I am so glad that you and your family enjoyed your stay at our house in Hernando Beach. I am sorry you had the issue with the A/C but glad that we were able to get it resolved for you quickly. We will be replacing the entire unit this fall so we don't have that issue again. You were very gracious and understanding. I hope you were able to find some scallops while out on the water. Take Care,

Great vacation home! We spent nearly 2 months there and loved every minute. Played golf at nearby country club. Watched gorgeous sunsets at popular local beach bars and at beautiful Pine Island park. Foodies will love the restaurants. The house is charming, clean, safe, comfortable and in a great neighborhood with lovely neighbors.
