We loved the house, everything was outstanding, we feel like home, kids loved the fact that the weeki wachee river was right around the corner. The kayaks were a plus!

Everything about our stay was perfect.

The price was wonderful, the location was awesome with the water front canal and the deck.

The rooms were ...perfect. I need more synonyms for "perfect," because the delightful house was absolutely lovely. It was all so clean.

Thank you Mandy for letting us stay at your beautiful house, we are making plans to come back soon.

Great quiet destination!

  • 4 of 5

Perfect place to relax and enjoy the water. Manatees were up and down the canals. Kayaks were great and easy to launch. Accommodations are simple yet very clean. Nothing fancy but all you need to get away and relax. Close to stores and restaurants and an easy drive to Tampa for fun family attractions. One recommendation would be to update linens and towels. Other than that, the house was great and exactly as it was described.

Very nice and pleasurable stay.

  • 4 of 5

We arrived to find the house neat and clean. There was plenty of room for my wife, daughter and son in law. The pier was like new and comfortable. We saw manatees that afternoon by the pier. We took the kayaks to the river and up stream towards the springs but couldn't quite make it all the way. On our way back we saw 2 manatee in the river and 5 in the canal (very cool). The only down side was the 2 person kayak. It was quite cramped for my wife and I two more 1 person kayaks would have been better. That being said we would not

Clean, comfortable and full of wildlife

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful mullet-filled stay! When we first arrived, we were so happy to see all the wildlife: herons, cormorants Hawks, a flock of white ibis in the yard, and plenty of high-jumping mullet entertained the kids. The neighbors were quiet and considerate. It seemed like a closely-knit community who looks out for each other.

The home had plenty of space for two cousins play. Beds were comfortable as well, and very clean. We enjoyed dining on the upper deck with its great views and breezes.

The kitchen was well-appointed and in good working order, as we're bathrooms. We had plenty of clean linens and towels. There was even a night light in the bedroom, which was helpful for us and the little ones.

We were able to take a kayak out and enjoyed paddling around the canal. Next time I'm sure we will spend more time on the water. Weeki Watchi Springs state park is just a few minutes away, and was a nice trip, perfect for younger kids: much smaller than the Orlando attractions, but very nice, and we were able to see everything in under three hours.

Thank you so much for having us, Kary! This was such a relaxing trip for us. We would love to come back with my husband, if you will have us back!

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
