Perfect Girls Trip

  • 5 of 5

The owner of this house, Maryann, was so sweet and so accommodating. We had a girls river weekend while staying at MaryAnns house and it was just Perfect! The house provided kayaks for us and we were right next to Rogers Park and The Upper Deck (bar and restaurant). Everything we needed was supplied at the house. We just bought our food before arriving, and we were set! We come to the river once a year and always try to rent a different house. This house is definitely one that we will be revisiting again! Thank you MaryAnn for evwrything... we absolutely loved it and had such a great time!

Weeki Wachee at Mary Ann's place

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at this little home which couldn't be better suited for making the most of what weeki wachee has to offer .

The home suited our needs very well with the bonus of the use of the kayaks which allowed us to explore the beautiful river . We were lucky in that two Manatees decided to spend some time in the water beside the dock .

Only down side to the property is that its next to what can be a busy road at times although it never spoiled our stay.

Mary Ann was very helpful and really is a great owner .

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed the house with all amenities and the kayaks to explore the river at your convenience. The location is ideal as it is in walking distance to Roger's Park ( beach area on river), restaurants and Marina. Unfortunately, everyone else has to drive to these location therefore at times the street may be busy. Sounds like you were out and about on river and having a great time which makes me so happy. River life is gran! Thanks for choosing our home and welcome to our Weeki Wachee Family!!

Great location, everything is included

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week. Having the kayaks included was a great bonus. We were on the water within 1/2 hour of arriving. Restaurants and boat rental close by, short paddle to the main river.

Very clean, spacious, comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time spending our vacation in Mary's home. We had never rented a vacation home before and overall it was a great experience. The vacation home was clean and spacious. The home was equipped with everything we needed. Kayaks were provided and we spent one morning kayaking for four hours. We were able to see three manatees! The vacation home was about 10min away from Weeki Wachee Springs. We definitely will stay there again!

Owner's Response: So glad that you and your family had a great experience from beginning to end. I always leave our home super clean and well equipped to get you to a great start. How wonderful that you took advantage of the kayaks and were able to enjoy the river along with some manatees. I always say it is a great day on the river even if you see one manatee or even an eagle..I love spotting wildlife! The home is located in the heart of Weeki Wachee and it makes me happy to know that you enjoyed the stay. The Weeki Wachee State park is 10 minutes away although the Crystal , clear water is minutes away by foot or kayaking from our home. Hurry on Back and welcome to our Weeki Wachee Family!

Just the right home to relax and reguvinate. MaryAnn knows how to take care of her guests!

  • 5 of 5

MaryAnn's home is a lovely place to relax and enjoy nature. We made use of the kayaks available to us and explored the canals and the weeki wachee river. We watched manatee families in front of the dock every morning and evening while enjoying the sunrises and moonrises on the upper deck. We will definitely return. MaryAnn is a great host who is available if needed but not intrusive at all. We had another couple join us one day and night and there was plenty of room.

Owner's Response: You guys were definitely a good luck charm in bringing the manatees to our canal! It is always a great stay when you have manatees in the canal to entertain your every moment. So glad you were able to experience them up close and personal. I love when I have the opportunity to meet my guests and ensure that they have everything they need for a good stay. I am always looking for guests that love to kayak so that I can share with them my love for the Weeki Wachee RIver. Hope you guys return soon! Welcome to our Weeki Wachee Family!

Owner's Response: I am glad you loved the location of our home. It is right in the middle of the Weeki Wachee River. So Close to the restaurants, marina and Roger's Park that you can walk there if you'd like..which many renters do. Our home is on a canal but it takes minutes to kayak to the main river. We also have many kayakers passing on our canal which makes it fun and entertaining. It is a quick way to know exactly where the manatees are hanging on the river from the kayaker's responses. Welcome to our Weeki Wachee Family.
