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 stay

  • 4 of 5

This home had everything you would want in a vacation rental. The property is well maintained, the home is clean and very comfortable. The kitchen was stocked with most everything you might need for cooking at home. The home is on the canal which leads to the Weeki Wachee river. It is about a 20-minute easy paddle. Once you are on the river you can swim in crystal clear cool water. The kayaks are a bonus and were used every day. Our grandchildren loved going out on the river. We even had a manatee and her babies come up to the dock. What a great experience and would love to go return. The only drawback was some confusion as to when was check-in and check out and I had trouble accessing the web page on VRBO once we had booked.

Just right!

  • 5 of 5

At first impression I felt the neighbors were a little close to one another. However, when you're actually inside the property it feels different somehow. You're raised above the neighbors because of the stilts and the railing of the porch /deck does provide an illusion of privacy. When I first walked in I was immediately satisfied with the place. Nothing fancy but was for sure acceptable. I believe some furniture had been updated since the photos that were posted.. I just remember it being nicer than what I was expecting. I woke up every morning to manatees in the canal, The Kayaks were perfect, the paddle to the actual river isn't horrible.. overall it's just a great place for a great price. I even checked the app calendar to see if I would be able to book additional nights while I was there. Unfortunately not though. Apparently the word is out. I definitely didn't want to leave after my stay and would for sure consider booking this place again

Awesome place, owners very accomodating, perfect vacation stop for Weeki Wachee mermaids

  • 5 of 5

My wife attended the August 2016 Weeki Wachee mermaids "sirens of the deep" camp. Was a present to her from me back at Christmas time and was just always something she really wanted to do. This house was only like 7-10 minutes from the Weeki Wachee state park where the mermaids perform at and is also only 10-15 minutes from the beach. We really liked staying here and enjoyed exploring the area. I must say, I was VERY impressed with the owners. They always responded to any questions we had quickly and they were very accomodating to us and provided lots of helpful information about things to do in the area. I would definitely stay again!

Great Get-A-Way

  • 5 of 5

My family greatly enjoyed fishing and kayaking at this cozy property in Weeki Wachee Gardens. Our teen boys spent from dawn to dusk on the waterways and especially loved the swinging rope on the river and seeing manatees.

The home is sufficiently furnished and supplies were plentiful with only a few exceptions. Our only suggestion is to update the information sheet on the fridge. There was a second note beside it stating a different day for trash pick up so we missed it and had to walk by the smelly trash cans the guests before us had left. Shopping is close by for anything you may have forgotten. BeckyJack's Food Shack is nearby and has delicious seafood and burgers! Portions are huge...

We definitely had a nice quiet break here and hope to return next year. Thank you!
