River Bend House is Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Spent the weekend with family and could not have found a better place to stay. House was immaculate and contained everything that we needed. It is obvious that the owner, Donna, genuinely wants her guests to feel as if they are truly at a home away from home by taking the time to prepare the home so thoughtfully. Being able to kayak right off the back steps and see several manatee was awesome. Would highly recommend reserving this home.

We spent our Christmas at the River Bend House....the only thing we needed were our stockings and a toothbrush. House has been renovated and updated to make all feel welcome, relaxed and at home. Easy to get to, stores and restaurants are nearby. Paddling 24x7 if you'd like too!

Wonderful home right on the river

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at a few lovely places in Weeki Wachee Gardens, but, this was by far the best. The location really can't be beat; the house is right on the river and is a short paddle or swim down to our favorite spot to snorkel with manatees. There's a nice patio area outside where you can sit under shade sails and watch boaters float down the river and manatees swim up in search of eel grass. The included kayaks were enough for four of us with two to spare.

Then there's the house itself -- three comfortable rooms with the same features, such that the only thing to fight over is which rooms' decor you like best. The kitchen has everything you need to cook your meals and there's a washer and dryer if you want to plan to pack less and do a load or two of laundry during your stay. Donna, the owner, has supplied pretty much everything you could think to want. We'll definitely be booking our stays here in the future.

Delightful little gem on the river

  • 5 of 5

A really well stocked and maintained house right on the river. Very welcoming decor, warm and inviting. Everything you could want in the kitchen with fully equipped laundry room down to supply of detergent and dryer cloths.

Bedrooms nicely decorated, comfy beds and clean fresh linen.

Kayaks available in the garage and easily carried into the river at the bottom of the garden.

Donna was amazing, warm and welcoming and obviously very proud of her house on the river.

She was there to greet us and share valuable knowledge about the river.

We really enjoyed our stay. 5 Star without a doubt

Thanksgiving Week on Weekee Wachee

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent Thanksgiving week in Donna's River House. It is a very nicely kept house with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. TVs in everybedroom and a 65 inch in the living room! Donna does an outstanding job of supplying the house with everything you will need. We loved the location on the river and the 6 kayaks that are supplied in the garage. We used the grill a few times..awesome. (noseeum bugs a big nuisance, but there was bug spray in the cabin...that I didn't use. I suggest that you do). The only small issue was the size of the 2nd bath, a bit small for adults. The main bath is nicely sized.We rented a full-size pickup and took kayaks to the head of Weekee Watchee and put in there for a 3 hour float back to the house. We did this twice. It is an awesome trip! Launch fee is $6 per kayak, but well worth it. Highly recommend this house. We will probably be back if it is available.

Completely renovated, classic Florida, river house.

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful stay at this rental property. The house is located on one of the most beautiful and prized pieces of real estate in Weeki Wachee.

The river is crystal clear with a sandy bottom, easily manageable entry to river with poured concrete steps leading to the water. My children, as young as two years old, had a ball running in and out of the water all day, catching lizards, and spotting manatees and schools of mullet as they swam by.

The inside of the house was meticulously kept and fully updated. Every single room was renovated. The kitchen was beautiful and easy to work in. The cotton sheets and bedding was comfortable. The washer and dryer worked perfectly and was quite useful with the three children all week.

Not a single complaint. Every single touch in the house was just right. You'll especially get a kick of the neat weather clock in the master bedroom and the fact that the house comes with top quality Pelican kayaks (6) ready for use in the garage.
