My wife and I just finished a two-week stay here and we loved every minute of it. The house is clean, comfortable and well-appointed and exactly as described in the listing. It is whimsically decorated with a host of animal figures and signs, giving it a friendly, warm and happy aura. The house sits at the intersection of two canals, one of which connects to the Weeki Wachee River. Visitors included manatees, otters, turtles and a wide array of birds. Two canoes and all necessary equipment are available for paddling around on the canals and river. We did not fish off the docks, but you can if you wish to do so. We had really good meals at The Upper Deck, a local bar right on the river, La Bella Napoli, a terrific Italian place, and BeckyJack's Food Shack, looks like a shack, but the food is great. Nearby is Weeki Wachee Springs State Park, undergoing rennovations but worth a visit, Pine Island, a small beach and a great place to watch Gulf sunsets, and Homosassa Springs, a wildlife park. The area is without the hustle and bustle of a lot of Florida. We found it very relaxing, a serene place close to nature with a taste of old Florida.

Owner's Response: Thank you Bob for the fantastic review. You have no idea how good it makes me feel when someone expresses how much they enjoyed the house and the area. You and your family were great guests and thank you for leaving the house is such good order and for keeping me posted on the unexpected events. I hope you get the opportunity to come and stay again someday.
