About alice archibald

My husband and I were born and raised in FL as well as several generations back. We have lived on the Weeki Wachee River for years and enjoy the same kind of activities the Pirate Cove has to offer, water front, boating, kayaking, swimming, nature in it's fullness with birds, ducks, turtles and we can not forget the manatees.

alice archibald purchased this house in 2015

Why alice archibald chose Florida

We purchased this home because it sits next door to the Mermaid Bungalow that is also posted on this site. Having the two next door, gives more opportunity for guest to come in larger groups to enjoy family, friends and makes an ideal wedding! Both share a small sandy ramp perfect for kayak's to be launched into the canal. Each has it's own adult bikes and kayaks with safety equipment with no extra charge. Have fun in the paddle boat that is included with stay! Availability depends on usage ( shared between both our Pirate Cove and Mermaid Bungalow guest that sit side by side). Enjoy sitting on the screened porch or outside by the fire pit along with grilling right in your own back yard!

What makes this house unique

SEE OLD FLORIDA in it's best with nature and have fun watching the MANATEES!!!

We are truly known for the cleanliness, save area and the extra fun features our Pirate Cove gives. With having bikes, kayaks, paddle boat included make your stay an even more fun one!

If you have seen the pictures posted of the Mermaid Bungalow you will know the Pirate Cove is as much fun. With the theme of pirates and mermaids, you can not help yourself to enjoy the unique setting of the house inside and outside. The house is very clean and because it is stocked with so much, you can kick back and just have fun! We have everything from cotton balls to a small portable baby crib. Flat screen TV's in each bedroom and living room, WIFI and land line phone with US and Canada calls included. Adult bikes and Kayaks with safety gear included.

Great vacation cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation at Pirates Cove this past week. We enjoyed taking the kayaks out and paddling around for hours at a time. The house is tastefully decorated with comfortable seating areas both inside and out. The screen porch was helpful - the no-see-ums were out when we were there. Thank you Alice for a great vacation experience.

Tranquil

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 nights at Pirates Cove and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house is very clean, comfortable and well stocked - just bring your food. We enjoyed kayaking the canals, biking the neighborhood and exploring the area. We saw lots of wildlife including a mom and baby manatee from the screened porch overlooking the canal. The owner is very accommodating, easy to work with and lives nearby in case anything is needed.

Nearby points of interest include Rogers Park on the WEEKI Wachee River just down the road; Pine Island beach park on the Gulf less than a 10 minute drive; WEEKI Wachee State Park with mermaids nearby; Boating in Florida kayaking from WW State Park to Rogers Park; Homasassa Springs State Park and more. We also enjoyed Honeymoon Island State Park which is just over an hour away.

I highly recommend staying at Pirates Cove.

Perfect for a quiet getaway

  • 5 of 5

House was spotless and in a quiet area. Almost everything you needed was supplied, from tin foil in the kitchen to lotion in the bathroom, even games and puzzles in case it rained. Very convenient to launch the kayaks from the back yard. Owners were very helpful. Would definitely stay again, and recommend to anyone.

A great place to stay! Would love to come back again and again!

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean and inviting. We had everything we needed and enjoyed using the kayaks to take a trip down the river. We were lucky enough to see several manatees. The location worked well for us, not far from stores and fast food, and the neighborhood felt safe. We would recommend this rental to friends and family and hope to make a return trip in the coming year.

Pirates & Mermaids...what's not to like??

  • 5 of 5

Myself and two girlfriends stayed at the Pirate's Cove rental for a MUCH needed get away. I am local to the area but hadn't been to Weeki Wachee in several years and was looking forward to getting back on the river! Alice was very accommodating and communicative in the booking process and was on site when we arrived as the rental next door (also hers) was having A/C issues, and she had someone out there within the hour, on a Sunday. The house was clean as could be and decorated adorably with some great personal touches for the guests as well. She was also very easy to get ahold of for food recommendations, information on the area, and the river. Bikes and kayaks were included in the trip which was a huge factor in where we booked. We all agreed we would definitely stay here again and we look forward to it! Thank you!
