Guestbook comments from the owner

Truly enjoying your beautiful home here. It is so light, airy, and clean.

Today we braved taking out the kayak. Had a great time with it. Thanks.

The river is so crystal clear. Lots of things to do here. We are really

busy doing biking, fair, air boat ride, etc. Taking the tips you sent re

the beaches and surrounding area

Great place for a family to hang out and relax with kayaks and free wildlife experiences

  • 5 of 5

Our first impression was it was one of the nicer houses in the area. The neighborhood nor the surrounding areas are touristy at all. You're in a house in a neighborhood. The house is elevated with a full bathroom, storage and parking underneath. House is very welcoming and basic. Nothing too fancy - just right. Huge kitchen, great dining area overlooking the water. LRoom also looks out to deck and dock. Decks goes around 2 sides of the house; you can easily spot manatee from inside because they look like brown blobs in the water. We'd yell "manatee!!" and then all run down to the dock which they actually nudge under to eat the greens underwater. Deck has a big outdoor dining table and a 2 person table. There's a fire pit in the small grassed backyard. Grill requires charcoal - very fun. There were 2 half bags of matchlight downstairs and we used 1 so wait to see what's there before bringing charcoal. Then leave your extra for the next person.

Not very many houses have such a nice boat ramp and 2 docks. We kayaked everyday. We started out with a parent and kid in each of 2, two-man kayaks but by midweek the kids were using the singles. My favorite is the red single but it's very tippy. There is a sandbar close by where the neighborhood canals meet the Weeki Wachee river. Great place to get out and sit in the water. The river is beautiful to kayak; turtles, hawk, raccoon, sea birds, manatee - to the left is wilder and fairytale beautiful but the current is against you. On the way back you just stop paddling and let the current turn you around and push you back to the sandbar.

Twice we paddled right up to a mom and about 4 foot baby manatee -nursing. They don't seem to mind. Back at the dock, we used a huge intertube tied to the dock to play in the water. Huge white heron come racing down the canal at eye level. Lots of wildlife, blue crab, turtles and tortoise, vulchers, even some bats. Beach was within 10 min. $5 to get in but you can leave and come back to see the sunset. Very shallow, no waves, very clear. Pine Island beach reminded me of a beach in the Fla. Keys. Winn Dixie less than 10 mi and Publixs. Normal neighborhood stuff - restaurants, drug stores but nothing touristy at all. Produce and fish sold at veggie stand nearby on Sat morn only. Hernando Beach has a veg stand next to Bayside Fish market and they'll cook it too. Great vacation!

Wonderful family fun!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The furnishing were not wonderful, the recliners were beat up as well as some of the other things, but the house was exceptionally clean and cozy. Having use of the 5 kayaks was an amazing luxury, our kids played on the water our entire stay. We only wished we would have stayed longer. The neighbors were friendly and our all around experience was AWESOME. We are looking forward to coming back and vacationing here again. Thanks again. Wonderful time!

lovely place

  • 4 of 5

This was a lovely place with minor issues. Our family ( my mom , husband and kids ) stayed in almost every place they have for rent in weekie wachee even the place next door. We love going there because we can bring our yorkies! We had a little miss communication between the owner and the lady that watches over the place, she didnt know when we were getting there and also that we had pets and she showed up at the house because she lives next door….all i can say is that whatever problem we had they fixed it. We loved everything besides no privacy. I would recommend staying there, the place is clean and has a beautiful view. The time to go there is around christmas , we saw many manatees swimming up to us at the dock and my kids made friends with the little kids across the river.
