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 Central Gulf Coast

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. Check out our Mermaid Bungalow next door 681084 when extra room is needed for larger groups!

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!

What an amazing time at the Pirate Cove!

  • 5 of 5

Beth,

We had an amazing stay at the Pirate Cove this past week. Your home is beautiful. When we got there it was late Monday and everyone just wanted to go to bed, but, then we walked in and everyone was in love. We all walked through the whole house and the kids were like, Mom you did a great job finding the perfect place for us on the Weeki Wachee. We woke every morning and sat out on the dock and watched the fish jump. We caught a huge crab right below the dock, and many fish. The use of your kayaks at our fingertips were a huge plus as well. We went out on the Weeki Wachee every day. One day we paddled all the way up (5) miles and then came back down. What a workout, but all had fun. We sat in the screened lanai at night and played cards and just listened to the water. We are already planning our next stay. Thank you so much for your hospitality Beth!
