Fabulous Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

Very nice place to vacation! The house was beautiful and up to date and well maintained. We had everything we needed including kayaks to adventure out on the canals. We love kayaking in Weeki Wachee! The location was very convenient, just a short drive to Pine Island beach and walking distance to Rogers Park and the Marina. The owner was very friendly and easy to get a hold of if we had any questions or concerns. I would highly recommend this rental. I can't wait to vacation here again myself!!

Great Getaway on the Nature Coast

  • 5 of 5

We felt right at home while staying in this comfy and pretty house on the river. It is just as nice as pictured and described, if not better. Sitting out on the upper porch with our coffee and watching the birds every morning was a real treat. We had the Kayak Shack take us and the double kayak up the river to Weeki Wachee springs and paddled back to the dock at the house. I would highly recommend this trip - gorgeous scenery, crystal clear water, and we saw a lot of wildlife - birds, turtles, manatees. There are many good restaurants nearby, and just about anything you might want on Rt 19 a few miles away. Pine Island is a nice beach on the gulf and has pretty sunsets. The owner was wonderful to work with, very responsive and helpful and we were glad we got to meet her and her husband while we were there. We would very much like to come back next year.

Owner's Response: There is so much to see and explore on the river. So glad you took advantage of the service that Kayak Shack offers to take kayakers with their own kayaks up the river for a small charge. So worth it! We enjoyed meeting you as well as all other future renters. We like to make sure that all is going well and answer any questions that they might have. Thanks for becoming part of our WWachee family and hope to see you again soon!

Nice Place!

  • 5 of 5

Very good place. House is clean; everything is provided, full kitchen. We've been in Florida about 7 times for last 10 years; this is probably the best location. Walking distance to the park where you can swim in the river and to the kayak rental place. Also walking distance to the Marina where you can rent a motor boat.

Besides that there are kayaks in the house that you can put in the canal just from the backyard.

Short drive to a lot of nice places including beach on the Gulf, Weeki Wachee Park, etc.

Drive to Tampa parks is a little more than an hour, but it took us about the same time (to get to the parks) when we were in Orlando earlier this year, just staying in traffic.

The owner is a nice person and very responsive; we did last minute rental and everything went very smoothly.

Also kudos to VRBO, they (with the owners) provide so much information now and made whole process much easier.

Weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

The house was in excellent condition and located very close to everything you would normally want. There is a restaurant and beach overlooking the river within walking distance. The house has a dock in the backyard which is perfect for kayaking or boating down the river as well, with plenty of kayaks for everyone. The house has a second story deck in the backyard overlooking the river which is great. Last but not least, the beach is only a short drive away. I would definitely recommend this house to groups of 4-5 people or couples who are looking for a relaxing weekend away from work.

Great Location, Awesome Experience

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay in this homey, nicely decorated, clean, well equipped home. The furnishings and beds were comfortable and the bathroom clean and roomy. When looking at rentals, having a couch and love seat or sectional is very important. We like to stretch out in the evening and relax so the two couches were perfect. We also enjoyed having our morning coffee and meals on the deck everyday. Also close to stores for any supplies we needed.

It was easy to kayak around the canals since there was really no current. Within a couple minutes we could be at the Kayak Shack which is next to the Upper Deck and for a small charge they took us and the double kayak to the head of the Weeki Wachee River. It was about 5 miles downstream back to the house. This is a must do. The kayak trip was so beautiful. The river is narrow and winds around and takes a little skill to maneuver down it. I was glad we practiced in the canals for a couple days before doing the trip. We also went to see the mermaids at Weeki Wachee and the nature preserve which was also close by.

During our stay we saw lots of wildlife, whopping cranes, a bald eagle so many water birds, woodpeckers and of course manatees in the river. We felt so lucky to see them.

Maryann is so helpful. She helped me with directions, restaurants (Becky Jacks - best fish ever), she contacted the Kayak Shack to make sure they could take us up river, let us know to go to Pine Island for the most beautiful sunsets. She was always quick to respond to any email I sent with my many questions. So wonderful to work with. I would recommend staying here to anyone. Thanks Maryann!
