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.

Relaxing, Homey, Scenic

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay! Very cozy, great view, great location and all amenities for a great price. Even though it was July, the manatees came to visit right to the dock. One day it was Mommy and baby and another day a lone manatee. They stayed for hours and it was hard to tear myself away. Sitting on the porch watching the mullet jump was so peaceful. I highly recommend staying at this property. I hope to be back soon! Thank you so much for offering such a great place to stay!

I am so happy we chose this house for our stay in Weeki Wachee! The view was amazing! The first day we seen manatees! The kayaks are great! Minutes to Weeki Wachee springs and shopping. 1 Hour drive to Tarpon Springs. Enough room for all family members. Mr. & Mrs. Brentwood are very responsive and easy to work with. Highly recommended!

Another Great Stay!

This was our second time staying here and we enjoyed it as much as the first. We had our son and his family with us and they loved it as well. We would highly recommend this house to our friends and family. Great getaway for family or couple. Thanks.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely had a great time at the home! Great location for our daytime adventures. Enjoyed fishing from the deck as well as using the fir pit on cool nights. Home was in great shape inside and out. Very relaxing. We will definitely be back soon. Thanks.

Winter Get Away

  • 5 of 5

We arrived in the early morning to our home away from home, the house was easy to find and gain entry with an inviting driveway and carport. The house was very clean, the beds were comfortable and the living room and couch's were super cozy. Beautiful view of the river out the sliding glass door and porch deck, which must have good fishing because there was a neighbor out there every evening in his boat. We took the kayaks down the river for a beautiful ride and saw a few manatee. We cooked an amazing dinner in the fully equipped kitchen using the grill outside then sat around the fire pit while listening to our family members sing songs and play guitar. We would recommend this house for families and couples, it was perfect and most relaxing for our trip to the Weeki Wachee River.
