About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-5)

The first time we went to Steinhatchee we fell in love with the Old Florida style of living and the laid back attitude and it's Gin Clear Waters ! That is when we decided to build Dad's Oasis. We have a beautiful, comfortable, fun home that is centrally located in Steinhatchee. It is within a mile of Sea Hag Marina, River Haven Marina, and Steinhatchee's New Public Boat Ramp, in 5 minutes your boat is floating !!!. Also we are only a few blocks from Maddies Market, Ace Hardware and small Speciality shops.

The Great Room has White Oak Hardwood Floors.The open concept of the great room lets everyone enjoy each others company no mater what you are doing.

.The Kitchen has White Oak hand crafted Cabinets and is fully equipped with everthing you need to make a great meal after your day on the water. ALL YOU NEED TO BRING IS FOOD !

The Spacious Living room has a Futon that converts into a comfortable Double Bed, Two padded Rocking chairs and a T V set equipped with cable.

The two Bedroom Suites are perfect for privacy, just close the door and you have your own Suite.The Master Suite has Ceramic tile floors, a Queen size bed, Dresser, and a spacious hanging closet. It has its own bathroom with a large shower, and French-Doors that lead out to its own deck.

The second Bedroom Suite also has Ceramic floors,an Oak Day-Bed that is a King size bed, also with its own bathroom, and large shower.

We have a Screen room that is separate from the house with a large Cypress table and two padded benches, lights & ceiling fan. It is a Great relaxing place to unwind after a day on the water, without being inside.

Off to the side of the house we have an L-shaped Stainless Steel fish cleaning station,with a sink and water, it is large enough for two people to clean the days catch.

The driveway leads into a Cul-De-Sac for easy turn a round of your boat trailer, with plenty of room for parking.

In the middle of the Cul-De-Sac is a Fire-ring ( fire wood included ) and chairs where you can relax and make plans for tomorrow or just tell stories.

In the storage area below the house, we have an extra freezer that is stocked with block ice, bait and can be used to store all the fish and scallops you catch. Also there is a Weber charcoal grill, two bicycles, and extra chairs for sitting out doors.

4th Time

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for what I think is our 4th time here at Dad's Oasis. As always House is perfect for a family scalloping trip. In a previous review I mentioned my only complaint was the second bed but that is a non issue it is now very comfortable! We also stayed earlier this year and spent a week offshore and flats fishing and staying at this house in the Hatch in the offseason is really nice and a quiet change from what we are used to up here. Book this house you will not be dissapointed.

The best home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed Dad's Oasis. The whole process from scheduling to returning the house key was seamless. This was our first time in Steinhatchee and we didn't know what to expect. The house and property far exceeded our expectations with a very friendly house manager, cleanliness, and amenities. The property had plenty of room to store our boat trailer, to play for the kids, and to roast marshmallows in the fire. The house was nicely stocked with everything that you need. Typically on vacation, we always eat out; however, it made it convenient having a fully stocked kitchen to make home cooked meals in.

We loved scalloping in Steinhatchee that we decided it will be an annual trip for us now, and Dad's Oasis will be definitely be part of it!

Two thumbs up!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at Dad's Oasis, and we are already ready to go back. The place is very clean, organized and fully stocked with anything you may possibly need on your trip. If you are like us and choose to cook instead of dine out, all you need to bring is your food, the kitchen has everything already. They have a large yard that makes coming and going with a boat trailer a breeze. It's located very close to the boat ramp but he property still gives you the private, secluded feel we were looking for. Our favorite thing is the outdoor gazebo: it's the perfect place to unwind, play cards and relax without being eaten by the bugs. If you are looking for a very affordable place to stay, and feel like you are at home, stay here!!

Perfect rental

  • 5 of 5

My family decided to scallop for the first time, and had the best experience. Besides the great scalloping year this rental was perfect for us. We had no idea what to expect. At first we wanted to rent a place on the water, but we did not like what we saw on the internet. We decided to take a chance with this place, and made the right decision. This place is perfect for all the reasons you'll read on other feedbacks. While we were there we drove all around looking for places to stay next year, and decided dad's oasis is the best.

Perfect Family Scalloping Rental

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying at one of the several condos for years in Steinhatchee but decided too late to grab one so we found this place an gave it a shot. House is sitting on a gorgeous lot with strips of trees on both sides so it feels like your in the woods but is conveniently located just a few blocks away from Sea Hag where we kept our boat for the week. Yard is large enough to pull a large bay boat and make an easy circle and leave your trailer for convenience and we also had 3 cars which was no problem with all of the space. Outside the gazebo has a fan which made for a comfortable outside hangout and the fish cleaning table was awesome and shaded. The house itself is nice with a large kitchen and family area and having two bathrooms is nice as well. My one and only complaint is the bed in the second bedroom isn't the greatest but everything else was great. We plan on staying many more times in the next few years and I highly recommend you stay here as well!
