BEST OF BOTH WORLDS

  • 5 of 5
Planning a trip for my Northern siblings and their spouses and wanting to show them there is more to Florida then just theme parks and beaches, this was the perfect place. The house was modern and set in a beautiful rustic location.
It made you feel like you were seeing the natural old world Florida yet with all of the necessary conveniences of today. The house was large, bright and airy but also cozy and intimate. Perfect for entertaining a large group but also for getting away on your own, sitting by the pool or on the lovely screened in porch. It had something for everyone. We all enjoyed ourselves so much, we are going to make it a yearly trip.

OUR GREAT ESCAPE

  • 4 of 5
We enjoyed our stay in this very unique area. The river water is so clear it's like looking into an aquarium. Turtles, fish, crabs and manatees are easy to see. We did plenty of hiking, biking and kayaking. The Weeki Wachee Preserve is a treat!
The home is very spacious and had everything we needed. WIFI, cable TV, a well-stocked kitchen, propane grill, outdoor dining, screened-porch and the lovely pool. The fenced-yard was very much appreciated as we could relax pool-side and not worry about our dogs. As a previous review stated the home could use a little TLC, but not enough to bother us. If it was too pristine, I would not be able to relax for trying to keep it perfect! Although both our dogs are treated with Frontline, they did pick up some fleas in the yard, but the weather was great and we spent a lot of time outdoors. We've only been home two days and they have no bugs now, so the Frontline must have done it's job. I used email to communicate with Meg, and always received a prompt reply.
We found three restaurants in the area that are excellent: Bella Napoli just down the road; Brian's Place in Hernando Beach; and the BeckyJack sandwich shack along Cortez. There are plenty of others, but these three could hold there own in any city.
This house and surrounding area are great for folks that prefer to be active during the day, enjoy a nice dinner either out or at home, then relax and kickback thru the evening.

DISAPPOINTED!

  • 2 of 5
House and yard in GREAT NEED of TLC and a good cleaning... was below standards for this price! Pet friendly yard was flea infested and full of excrement from previous pets. Took almost 2 days to finally reach owner by phone to voice my concerns. Owner then began claims of our misuse of the property. My refund is short and she is not returning calls! Chalked up to BAD EXPERIENCE... choose wisely!

Owner's Response: This review was expected. From the beginning this renter complained about everything. As Florida goes, weather is unpredictable. They arrived on a Thursday, and that whole week we had rainy weather; therefore, the lawn service and pool guy were unable to come. After complaints about the conditions of the yard due to the weather, as well as tree prongs in the pool (during this time we had 40 degree weather.) Both usually do come weekly. As far as calls not being returned, 1 message was left and returned - as a matter of fact I spoke to her a few days ago, and she told me she was submitting this bad review.
I also informed her she still had owed me money, and did not tell me about her dog (which is an extra $75 fee). This fee goes to treatment after each pet, and we have never had a flea problem previously. I am certain they are the Florida no-see-ums, a pesky insect that loves to invade personal space at sunset. As for accusing her of misusing the yard, the only thing I can think of was when I told her somebody in her party left the kayak down in the boat ramp, which floated away during high tide, and I received a call from my neighbor who retrieved it for us.
I even offered them to arrive a night early at no charge because the weather was bad driving conditions. I am sorry they were not happy, and was more than willing to meet them half way. Since 2011 I have had several hundred happy renters and not one complaint. I am always very hospitable to any renters, which has assured many returning guests.

FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
Our family had an incredible time, enjoying the kayaks, the river, and seeing the manatees. The home was very roomy and comfortable. The flowers and donuts waiting our arrival were greatly appreciated. Thanks for making our vacation so much fun!

PEACEFULNESS AND TRANQUILITY ON THE WEEKI WACHEE

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this spacious home during the past week. We have rented VRBO homes each May on this rustic river for several years. We found this home to be our best rental to date. this home is clean, (we saw no palmetto bugs!) and has all of the amenities we wanted. A nice pool, kayaks, a gas grill, a large rec room with a pool table and a screened porch that overlooks the canal that goes out to the river. The manatees were very friendly and visited us often...and even nudged our kayaks! The owners were very friendly and easy to work with. I would rent this home again when we re-visit e area.
