Wonderful!!

  • 5 of 5

Would highly recommend Weeki Wachee Retreat. Dawn is a great hostess. Home is very clean and beautifully decorated. So cozy and comfortable. Very relaxing. Kayaks were alot of fun. Had a great afternoon scalloping adventure with Captain Dave of Salty D's Charters. Would definitely love to stay here again if we're in the area.

Cozy and peaceful home!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this property! The house is cozy. We were worried about one room for two couples, but there was plenty of space in the bedroom. Everything was super clean and in great condition. Everything we needed was there. I felt like we had our own private retreat for the weekend. When I return to visit friends who live in the area I will return! I will also recommend to other friend.

Great stay...with everything you might need already there!!

  • 4 of 5

The house was wonderful - plenty of room & close to activities. We wanted to be close to the kayak rentals & this was perfect. The Italian restaurant nearby was wonderful - I enjoyed the garlic knots both times we ate there!! If you're looking for a great rental property to use as "home base" I highly recommend this one!!

Quiet peaceful property in a location full of nature.

  • 4 of 5

The property was very quiet and clean. The beds were very comfortable. I wish it had been closer to the river, but I liked it well enough that I extended my stay. I don't ever remember sleeping that well... 12+ hours every day....
