Great stay...with everything you might need already there!!

  • 4 of 5

The house was wonderful - plenty of room & close to activities. We wanted to be close to the kayak rentals & this was perfect. The Italian restaurant nearby was wonderful - I enjoyed the garlic knots both times we ate there!! If you're looking for a great rental property to use as "home base" I highly recommend this one!!

Quiet peaceful property in a location full of nature.

  • 4 of 5

The property was very quiet and clean. The beds were very comfortable. I wish it had been closer to the river, but I liked it well enough that I extended my stay. I don't ever remember sleeping that well... 12+ hours every day....

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.
