Relaxing Stay on a Beautiful River

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I loved our time on the Weeki Wachi River while staying at Pam's Mermaid House! Clean and comfortable lodging, while being surrounded by colorful unique furnishings. We highly recommend the place and Pam was a wonderful hostess, making sure we had everything we needed and advising us on local things we could do.

We enjoyed the opportunity to prepare breakfast in the outdoor bar area which really worked for us and added to the ambiance of the experience. Just make sure if you plan to stay at this wonderful home that you are aware that there is no formal kitchen. There is a full size fridge and coffee maker in the sun room along with a griddle under cover in the outside bar. Again, this was idea for us, but just make sure significant cooking is not in your plans and you will be beyond satisfied with your stay in this wonderful abode.

We put our kayaks in at the backyard steps and paddled up to the head of the springs 5 miles up river and then back down. What a beautiful river and such a unique experience to launch and complete your paddle at your own lodging. Sitting out by the river before bedtime was so relaxing you could hardly make it to the bed due to being so chilled out.

Again, we can without reservation recommend your stay at Pam's charmingly whimsical lodging on the banks of the Weeki Wachee River!!

You could not ask for a more beautiful location on the Weeki Wachee River.

We adore Pam and her creative mermaid house. She made us feel like friends, welcoming us with Happy Birthday painted in the driveway because she knew we were celebrating my daughter's birthday. In addition to comfortable beds and an incredible outdoor space to hang out in, she makes sure you have everything you need. If having manatees swim by throughout the day wasn't amazing enough, she has a light show that automatically turns on for you when the sun sets. We didn't want to leave and have already made reservations for a return visit. Thank you Pam for providing us with an amazing get away.

Property is nice

  • 3 of 5

The staying was good nice close to the river,we didn't like the fact that the owner was there all the time checking on us which we feel uncomfortable because we were paying that much just to be bother, on top of that we paid a fee for cleaning and we were suppose to get our deposit back which didn't happen because owner said that she had to clean I think $75 is more than enough to clean anyways We won't be back defiantly.

Owner's Response: So sorry that Memorial weekend was not I hoped it would be. Checked five guest's that we're booked to stay an ended up being a camp ground for 25 unknowns. I left after checking them in an come back next day to a loud campground . I let it go at that they we're in an ask it if they could remove big water float of lawn an put on concrete an they did gas grill they put on lawn an grease all over . Had to degrease the decking, have the carpet cleaned from koolaid spilled on carpet an gum stuck on furniture an radio blasting till 3 am . Four neighbor's called me when I returned home an said they asked them to please turn it down a bit an they told them where to go. Thank god for my considerate neighbor's. They had friend's park car's on my neighbor's property so I wouldn't know what was going on. My radio was on overload when I came home. I have had nothing but respectful guest's in the past from VRBO this was not my kind of guest's. I welcome all guest's with respect an peace an tranquility an want you to enjoy an have fun on the river. Respectfully Pam Schott
