Great location on the river

  • 5 of 5

Great location. paddle up. ride down. Wide steps lead down to river with white sand bar. The house was very accommodating. Ample room for 2 or 3 families. also comes with all the floating things you need. Home owner was very accessible, informative, and nice.

Thanks Donna!

Paradise on the River

  • 5 of 5

We've been visiting this area for a few years, and decided to find a home directly on the main river this time. Wow, what a gem! The home was spotless, beautifully decorated, and complete with everything needed to enjoy our stay. I loved sitting out every morning with my coffee watching the fish and manatee go by. Our children LOVED the steps leading down to the river. They spent hours swimming and floating on tubes. The home is directly across from a nature preserve, so incredibly private and peaceful. We will be back!

Beautiful and perfect house and location for a family getaway.

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous crystal clear Weeki Wachee River curves around the house and steps down to launch the kayaks that were included with the rental. These are clean, good quality kayaks and paddles too. No short cuts were taken with this vacation rental property. Every detail in the home is perfect and spotless. We never needed to leave the house. Everything you need and want to do is right here. Donna was amazing to work with. We will definitely be back! The Williams Family

Home away from home...on a river!

  • 5 of 5

Clean,organized,well stocked with anything you could imagine you would need.

Close to dining and groceries - but you feel like you are alone on the river, especially early morning.

Fish, manatees, river otter all at the steps going into the river.

Donna is the most hospitable person we have ever met. Her love of the river is contagious.

Great value - great retreat.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Weeki Wachee and we will definitely return. The home was exactly as described and the river is beautiful. The owner welcomed us when we arrived and answered any questions we had. The home is well stocked and comfortable. Looking forward to a return visit.
