We stayed here for 6 weeks in 2014 and returned for another 6 weeks in 2015. The cottage is conveniently located for kayaking on the Mud River (which is not muddy) to Bay Port (and a nice picnic area) on the Gulf and to Rogers Park (with a nice swimming area) followed by a paddle (depending on your stamina) up the Weeki Wachee. Although we brought our own kayaks to take advantage of the many other paddling opportunities in the area, the two sit-on-top kayaks that come with the cottage exceeded our expectations and were great for less experienced users. We also used them when we did not want to unload our own yaks. The grounds at many rentals are not appropriate for launching a canoe or kayak. The launch area at the Mud Hole, with the supplied outdoor carpet, worked nicely.
The cottage is exceptionally well equipped with all the little things you might find in someone's home. The beds (especially the queen in the master bedroom) are comfortable and supportive, resulting in lots of good sleep. The screened in front porch, the front deck, and the grounds are private and relaxing ... perfect for days the weather is appropriate for outside activities. Although the satellite wifi at the cottage is OK for email and basic web browsing, streaming capabilities for video or music are quite limited.
The property manager was easily to work with, quickly responding to a couple of minor issues. Shopping is convenient and travel times to other places of interest such a Crystal River, Tarpon Springs, and Inverness, are less than an hour. We recommend the property and would return if vacationing in the area.
