Very Quiet

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time at Weeki Wachee Retreat. Very clean. Comfortable bed and nice bedding. Well supplied with everything we needed. The neighborhood seemed a little sketchy but everyone was very nice and friendly.

We used the owners very nice kayaks. The best part of our trip was the backyard and all the wildlife - birds,

turtles, deer, squirrels and even an alligator. (we named him Willie) The owner was very nice to work with. Quick responsesto my questions and returned my deposit the same day I moved out. Would recommend this rental.

Great location in rural Florida!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the Weeki Wachee Retreat! This newly remodeled home was very convenient to a lot of places but still had a nice, rural feel. We kayaked on the river, saw the mermaids at the state park and visited a local winery. Also, there is a great Italian restaurant within walking distance. I would definitely recommend this rental.

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent time in Weeki Wachee! The springs and wildlife parks were amazing and we saw our fair share of manatees! The house was lovely & provided everything we needed for our stay. There was plenty of room and the interior was great condition. Will definitely recommend this rental property. Thanks!
