We loved this little cottage. It was the prefect fit for our family of 5. The house was easy to find, clean, and comfortable. Our favorite feature was the screened in patio, which we spent the majority of our waking hours if we were not out and about. We got the kayaks out and used them to paddle up and down the canals, which was very quiet and relaxing. The wildlife park up the street is a fun place to visit and definitely take advantage of the discount you get from Bird's Underwater to go on a guided manatee swim!
This was our second stay at the Fishbowl. First was in November second time September for Labor Day weekend. Two different times of year and different experiences both great. This time way less Manatees but both my kids 11, and 15 had a great time. My youngest caught a 28" Snook right from the dock in the backyard. Kayaking and swimming in the springs right at the end of the canal. The house location and kayaks are a big plus. This is a small older Florida house and that's all you need if you are outdoors loving people. Beds are comfortable and its equipped well. Nothing fancy but that's why your here. Real FLA nature and fun.
This place was amazing. yes it is an older home, but for the location and price it is unbelievable. wonderful kayaks were included, and sitting on the dock over the water cannot be beat. It's close enough to the springs that you don't have to plan ahead and can be there in minutes barely paddling, yet on a canal with a lot of privacy. we truly loved our stay and hope to return soon. thank you!!!
great waterside cottage. Clean and very well stocked with linens, kitchenware, TV/DVD, WiFi, etc. The kayaks were invaluable and the surroundings both quiet and beautiful. Would definitely recommend it.
Stayed here at Christmas with my family. Very clean and well maintained. Only a short paddle to
see the manatees. Within walking distance to Wildlife Park and stores. Would highly recommend
this property. Loved the toilet seat in the bathroom!
