Quiet, clean, comfortable and convenient!

  • 5 of 5

This property is everything the owner promises! Dawn was prompt in her responses and very helpful. We walked to the Italian restaurant, kayaked on the Weeki Watchee River and saw the amazing Manatees. Drove to Pine Island and visited nearby family. House is beautiful and bed was comfortable. We will keep this on our short list. Thank you Dawn.

Better than advertised

  • 5 of 5

A gem of a place to enjoy nature from the perch of your balcony. Sounds of nature abound! Yet a 300 yard walk up the street lands you at the table of a magnificent authentic Italian restaurant. I totally did not want to leave. Clean, well appointed home with class hidden in every nook. Can’t wait to come back!

Relaxing getaway retreat home close enough for shopping and dining!!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the Week Wachee Retreat home was perfect size for us and close to grocery shop as well as dining local restaurants. The kitchen was fully stocked for dishes, pots, pans...everything we needed to make meals and enjoy our stay. We also made use of the outdoor grill! The owner was very responsive and communicated whenever we asked any questions. Have to say waking up each day seeing all of the wildlife critters and hearing birds was a real treat :)

Wonderful!!

  • 5 of 5

Would highly recommend Weeki Wachee Retreat. Dawn is a great hostess. Home is very clean and beautifully decorated. So cozy and comfortable. Very relaxing. Kayaks were alot of fun. Had a great afternoon scalloping adventure with Captain Dave of Salty D's Charters. Would definitely love to stay here again if we're in the area.

Cozy and peaceful home!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this property! The house is cozy. We were worried about one room for two couples, but there was plenty of space in the bedroom. Everything was super clean and in great condition. Everything we needed was there. I felt like we had our own private retreat for the weekend. When I return to visit friends who live in the area I will return! I will also recommend to other friend.
