We have rented this place once a year for the past 5 years. We love watching the manatee swim, love the coziness of the cottage, and all the amenities. We can't wait to do it again.

Awesome experience

  • 5 of 5

One of our favorite things to do was sit on the dock and watch fish jump and ducks swim by. We went canoeing and saw manatees. We also saw an alligator. The kitchen had all the right tools for our stay. The movies there kept us busy at night. The restaurants around are all great. there were many fun activities around the house.

Our 2 month stay was great!!! The cottage comes equipped with just about everything you need. The king bed was very comfortable, it has a washer and dryer, great Wi-Fi, and cable. It felt like home from the time we arrived. We spent many hours sitting on the dock or in the back yard relaxing. There are lots of Manatees in the canal. If you like eating out, there are some great places to eat from sea food to Italian and everything in between.

We did get to meet the owner (Flip) and what a great person. If you had any questions he always responded right away.

Would we stay there again? Yes we have already rebooked for next year and are so looking forward to it already.

Mermaids, Manatees, and The Gulf!

  • 5 of 5

A small cottage on a canal in the Weeki Wachee Springs community is what we wanted and this is exactly what we got and beyond! We had a little row boat to take our three girls out on the canal to see their first manatees up close as well as water that you can see through. The cottage had all the right things for our little family. Our family has two young children that have severe food allergies and to be able to cook and have an extensive clean house was what we needed for our first family vacation in 8 years and that is what we got. Flip also went above and beyond answering all questions and making sure that we had everything that we needed. The beach isn't far away either for spring/river swimming or for gulf coast salt water swimming. Weeki Wachee was only 10 minutes away to provide a great water park, history of the area, and MERMAIDS!!!! My own childhood dreams came true of having great aunts leaving in the New Port Richey area passing by this beautiful place growing up. The cottage is only 45 mins from Tarpon Springs a great small sponge fishing, Greek community which we suggest anyone go to for authentic Greek cuisine. The trees and being right next to the Preserve and Wildlife refuge was beautiful for the Environmental Educator in me! My girls got to catch frogs, fish, lizards, and see fresh air succulents on all the trees as well as large Cypress trees that are 100s of years old. I am telling you this place is a dream and will be a place we seek out for another vacation!

Clean and affordable

  • 5 of 5

Great stay at Flips house!! Had manatees come right up to the dock and eat for hours. House is so clean and has everything you need. Hard to work, because no good cell phone service, but that's not Flip's doing, its Weeki Wachee. Never any good cell phone service up there. But the wifi worked perfectly. Marina next door was awesome and rented a boat 3 days and went upstream to the crystal clear water. The fish jumping right in front of the house was funny to see all the time. Very quiet....I thought maybe we would be bothered by the Upper Deck but could not even hear it. Dock was fun too. Was nice to bring the dogs as well....Thank you for a great time. King size bed in the master bedroom was very comfortable too...Will go back!!
