Relax in Paradise in our home for a week, month, or for the season. Enjoy the beauty of Florida's most beautiful spring-fed river, right at your back door. Sit on our dock overlooking the water and watch the manatees, porpoises, and numerous salt and fresh water fish swimming by.

Catch fish right off our floating dock and clean them on the built in fish cleaning station. Park your boat on our deep water dock without worry of tidal fluctuations.

Beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed having out college reunion here. We were 10 minutes from the Mermaids and water park (a must go to!!!) and only 5 minutes from the swimming hole. This house has plenty of room, a wonderful back porch to take in the view and easy access to kayaking.

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying here for our family get-together. The house was very nice and had everything that we needed. We loved hanging out on the big screened porch overlooking the canal and especially enjoyed using the kayaks. We will definitely consider renting this house again. Thank you!

Great place to stay ! We loved this home

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful place to stay. The home was perfect for our group of 11 (4 couples and 3 singles). Weeki wachee springs requires reservations so we weren't able to kayak the river as planned. We ended up paddling upstream from Rogers state park, but didn't make it very far because of the high volume of traffic through the area, including boats, tubes and other kayaks. It was alot busier than 2 years ago when we visited before.

Beautiful home! Great house for R&R and visiting with friends and family

  • 5 of 5

Check in here was a breeze! The house was very clean. 11 women that went to high school together, meet up once a year to enjoy a long weekend without our husbands & children. Jimmy was great and answered any questions I had beforehand. The large screened in porches with ceiling fans, comfortable tables, & chairs were so relaxing. It a wonderful place to wake up, drink coffee, & chat with old friends. We utilized the Kayaks and there was an easy launch on the property. Plenty of towels, linens, cookware, and utensils. Past guests, including us, leave our extra paper plates and garbage bags. In the garage downstairs, there is an additional refrigerator and freezer. It was a God send. We ladies ALWAYS bring far too much food & utilized the extra storage! I believe it is meant to freeze your potential fishing catches, but worked out lovely for us! It was very open & inviting and checkout was quite easy. Simple, get your food out of the fridge and wipe it down, strip bed linen's and lay them on the floor. We took our towels to the laundry room in a hamper & put all dishes away. Easy peasy! The back yard is beautiful. Wish I could have stayed on for a few more days. I highly recommend this place! Simply AWESOME! I would come back again & again!

We had company from Germany and the house was just amazing. It housed 10 people and room to spare. The house was just beautiful and so was the scenery. We would highly recommend this place!

Beautiful home in a great environment!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd year in a row going to this house and had just as much fun, if not more, than the first time around! House was super clean and had everything we needed. The backyard was huge with ample room for all of us to hang out during the day. It was amazing waking up sitting on the balconys watching my friends kayak and canoe. One thing I will say, bring bug spray! This was our senior year of college so hoping to coordinate a trip for all of us at some point next year. On top of the amazing house, the neighbors are friendly as anything. Overall great experience.
