Highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place to have a family getaway. We had the pleasure of seeing multiple manatees plus a baby manatee during our stay from the dock and balcony. House is very well kept, clean, and the decor is perfect down to the smallest of details. We loved the river, fishing, and heading to Pine Island beach/playground daily. Last but not least you must try Becky Jack's restaurant...it isn't much to look at but the food is delicious! Thank you, thank you, thank you! We cannot wait to come back to this home away from home again!

Loved the house, porch, dock. Everything was great!

  • 5 of 5

This trip is our annual family vacation for my birthday weekend and Labor Day holiday. We have tried a couple places before but, this is off the beaten path in just the right way! Not on the main canal so, not too much traffic but, so close you are out to the ocean in just 5 minutes. Owners thought of everything! Kayaks, canoeing, places for your own boat, gas fire pit, wifi (most important with a 9 year old!), games, electronics, kitchen appliances, washer & dryer.... I could keep going on and on... I am an over planner but, you could just show up here with food, clothes, and a boat and wing it with all the owner has to offer! Our family enjoyed it and has many lasting memories on video to prove it! Lol

We had 5 teen agers from 15 to 18 and they all had a great time. Even got to swim with a manager by the dock. Home is well equip and would return.

Great long weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a long weekend at this house. It was very clean and comfortable. I enjoyed setting on the deck and being able to see the manatees playing all weekend. It was great having the kayaks available to explore the area. The fire pit was a nice addition to complete our day. The area has a lot of activities close by and restaurant options.

Great Weekend Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 (2 adults, 2 young children) stayed here during Labor Day weekend 2016. The owners were great in keeping us updated on the condition of the house.(hurricane passed through the area the day before we were to arrive.) The house was cozy - but more than enough room for the four of us. We loved the deck, the firepit, and dock. We were able to utilize the canoe and took a nice trip down the river, stopping at Roger's Park and petting a Manatee and it's pup.

The house is very close to a beach (closed for us though) and Weeki Wachee Park. The park was a lot of fun, great water slides, very nice mermaid show, floating dock, and all at an extremely reasonable price. We ate at Upper Deck one night - probably wouldn't go back - overpriced - but wife enjoyed the crab cakes. The other night we used the Grill. Definitely something that has seen better days, but we used some aluminium foil and so it did the trick. Fire pit is Gas - doesn't make a large fire, but good enough to make s'mores and some memories.

The kids loved their room and the nice bunk beds in there. The master bedroom was nice and bed was very comfortable.

The owners were very nice and came by to clean up the yard on Saturday. We wish we had at least another day there. I highly recommend this house for a couple or small family. One suggestion I have is leave a long lighter for guest to use the grill and fire pit. The nice neighbors let us borrow theirs. A new grill might be in order soon too, but if you use aluminium foil it wasn't a problem for burgers and hot dogs. Bring your fishing rod - lots of fish jumping all around the dock.

Owner's Response: We are so happy you enjoyed your stay, even after the questionable start due to Hurricane Hermain making an unwelcome visit to our beautiful nature coast. Our apologies about the grill, as it is a constant battle for positive upkeep due to cleaning commitment from guests. Again, thank you for staying with us and hope you come back and visit.
