Absolutely superior property and location!

  • 5 of 5

This home has many more amenities and better location than most of the available homes on the water. On a nice wide channel off the main river just enough to be private, yet very accessible for paddle boarding and kayaking.

The pool was a welcome surprise for cooling off in between activities, yard is very well landscaped, even has timed lighting for extra outdoor ambiance.

The owner is very good at communication and the home was completely ready when we arrived. We intend to return for another excellent experience in the near future!!

Great place to stay, especially with a large family. Meg was terrific to deal with.

Have a fun family experience in this roomy home. Manatees come by daily. Caught a 5 pound large mouth bass right at the dock.

Super house, great location for families & friends

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd year vacationing at Meg's house. And yes, you really can swim with Manatee's as we did several times. We have already re-booked for 2018. My only wish is that I could magically add 2 more bedrooms to the existing 3 so we could have more friends and family to stay with us and enjoy the Weeki Wachee! See my review from 2/17/2016 for all the other accolades regarding the house and activities. Can't wait for 2018!

Very disappointed

  • 1 of 5

Will not be returning. Due to unwarranted holding of partial deposit.

Renters beware.

Everything and More!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 adults and 4 children had the best five days at Weeki Wachee and Rental 911060. The home was spacious, the AC worked great, the beds were comfortable, and being on the corner lot with a pool to boot was just perfect for our four grandchildren. They stayed in the water, whether it was the Gulf (scalloping), the canal (fishing and swimming) and the pool (just having fun) and took fun to the MAX! The Master Suite was so large and spacious and the walk-in shower was so wonderful. The downstairs playroom with pool table kept the kids occupied in the early morning hours while us adults were getting our beauty sleep. We also loved the stone dragons that would spew canal water on either side of the on-site boat ramp. The kids and visitors just loved those! We honestly couldn't ask for a better vacation home. We plan on coming back next year!

Returning for Longer Next Year

  • 5 of 5

We have come to Weeki Wachee and Crystal River area five times since 2008 and stayed in 4 different houses. Our first house was a great place and we wanted to keep renting it but but those darn Canadians keep renting it for 3 months! It is so popular we have not been able to get a date for four years. So, we rented Meg's house this year. I am tempted to say nothing but bad stuff so we won't have a problem renting in the future,....but I won't. This is a great place! We just loved it and there plenty of room for two families. Large rooms and bathrooms, a huge game room and very nice kitchen breakfast/dining area, large den/TV area as well. We brought our own boat and launched it at the private launch on the property and kept it moored on the floating dock...a big plus! Although we didn't use them, there was a least six kayaks of various sizes on hand. Another great item was a large outdoor BBQ Pit, huge deck and stationary dock to hang out around. The view from the 2nd floor and the large screened porch is wonderful. Our Scottish Terrier lived on the porch daily during our stay watching the squirrels in the Palms and the boaters on the canal.The pool area is large and another wonder area to relax. We also saw plenty of Manatee's in front of the house. In fact, a family of three was at the dock when we arrived. We headed to the Hospital Hole twice a day to see the Manatee's (usually about 20) and also saw Otters, Herons, Wild Boar and a host of other wild life. I could go on, but I'll just say we rented for one week this year, coming back for two weeks in 2017! Can't wait.
