About this rental

Canal-front home: open for biz

The Canal Cottage is a beachy home set along a saltwater canal in Hernando Beach, Florida. We are only 15 minutes by boat to the peaceful waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

Back on land, our grassy yard invites you to relax – among swaying palms, a hammock and canal views that may include dolphins. Eat al fresco as neon sunsets swirl across the sky. Or talk for hours around our fire pit.

We also have cornhole and fishing rods, plus a dock with two v-hull boat lifts (each holds 10,000 lbs).

The space

* Please note: All is well in Hernando Beach as Hurricane Ian never approached our region. We are open and would love to see you!

Inside, our beachy decor makes you feel like you’re on vacation. Unwind in the living room where white and lagoon blue furnishings evoke an ocean palette. And yes! Colorful fish sculptures adorn some walls.

Our kitchen has everything you’ll need, including lots of counter space and stainless steel appliances. Plus a coffee & tea bar with K-Cup pods, tea bags, hot chocolate in winter and more. Steps away, our light-filled dining room looks out to the canal and yard. With a table that seats 8 people, it’s a great spot to play card and board games. Or enjoy quiet time with puzzles and books.

And when it’s time to call it a night, retreat to our three bedrooms for a good night’s sleep. Drift away among pastel blue and green walls, picture windows and sea-inspired bedding. This is the good life!

    The convince of having a boat lift was great! You just wake up and go fishing! The house was very nice. Clean and well maintained. Great location! The AC went out one day and Terre was awesome in getting the repair company out asap. Fixed immediately! Highly recommended!!

    This property is a gem! Quiet, absolutely beautiful neighborhood, right on the canal. The home has so many personalized touches, makes you never want to leave. If you are looking for outdoor living, this is the place for you! The private dock was my favorite place to be, actually watched a dolphin swim by and play in the canal! Terre was super helpful, and checked in on us via text, which was much appreciated . We loved our stay so much, we look forward to returning!

    Home was exactly as described. Terr had a Christmas tree and alot of extras. Was a nice surprise. The house was very clean and roomy. We enjoyed the games and most of all the boat lift for our boat. Nice ride to the gulf. Perfect for everyone and also our doggies.

Loved fishing and crabbing right off the back deck. My family made great memories in this house. You won't be disappointed with a stay at Reel Serenity!

    We brought our boat up for scalloping season and had a blast. The house was tidy and very tastefully decorated. Also, the home was stocked with everything we needed for home cooked meals, barbecues, and keeping our boat on the lift. We highly recommend this property and would definitely stay again.
