Returning for Longer Next Year
We have come to Weeki Wachee and Crystal River area five times since 2008 and stayed in 4 different houses. Our first house was a great place and we wanted to keep renting it but but those darn Canadians keep renting it for 3 months! It is so popular we have not been able to get a date for four years. So, we rented Meg's house this year. I am tempted to say nothing but bad stuff so we won't have a problem renting in the future,....but I won't. This is a great place! We just loved it and there plenty of room for two families. Large rooms and bathrooms, a huge game room and very nice kitchen breakfast/dining area, large den/TV area as well. We brought our own boat and launched it at the private launch on the property and kept it moored on the floating dock...a big plus! Although we didn't use them, there was a least six kayaks of various sizes on hand. Another great item was a large outdoor BBQ Pit, huge deck and stationary dock to hang out around. The view from the 2nd floor and the large screened porch is wonderful. Our Scottish Terrier lived on the porch daily during our stay watching the squirrels in the Palms and the boaters on the canal.The pool area is large and another wonder area to relax. We also saw plenty of Manatee's in front of the house. In fact, a family of three was at the dock when we arrived. We headed to the Hospital Hole twice a day to see the Manatee's (usually about 20) and also saw Otters, Herons, Wild Boar and a host of other wild life. I could go on, but I'll just say we rented for one week this year, coming back for two weeks in 2017! Can't wait.
My family goes away together for the Memorial Day Weekend, we usually go to the beach at a condo. We were at this house for 2 hours and my kids said they want to come back to the river next year!!! Our party consisted of 5 adults and 2 small children and there was plenty for all of us to do. We had the river front and our own pool! The house was great and accommodated all of us very well. There was everything we needed there. It was also a plus that Meg is pet accommodating, my daughter got to bring her dog with us, the yard is fenced in so we had no worries about the dog getting out! The pool was great it was nice to have it all to ourselves, not like at the condo!!! There are pool noodles there and a few floats to use. The yard was very big and we had brought our corn hole game with us and there was plenty of room to play. We took the kayaks out and saw manatees, and we even saw manatees from the dock. The house has a screened in porch and I would get up and have my morning tea on the porch and enjoy the quiet of the river. One morning the dog even let us know there was a river otter on the dock! Oh yeah and don't forget the pool table downstairs!!! I would highly recommend this VRBO! Thanks Meg for sharing your house with us!!
We had the best vacation and really enjoyed our stay. The accommodations were just as pictured and Meg had the house set up with everything you could ever need. We felt very at home and didn't want the trip to end. Our whole family had such a great time; we would love to go back again.
We really enjoyed our stay! The house was was very well stocked with anything you could possibly need! Our children thoroughly enjoyed the swimming pool. The house had an "at home" feel to it. Thank you Meg for everything!
We had an absolute wonderful time while staying in Meg's house. I have never felt as relaxed while staying as a guest somewhere as I did here. The house is very well stocked. Anything that you would need on a daily basis was in the house. I felt like I was at home the entire time. Our children really enjoyed the pool. It will definitely be a vacation worth redoing.
Home away from home
We have stayed here multiple times and always just love it!! Usually come in the summer during scallop season, but didn't make it this year. I have to say this time was by far the best ever!! The weather was perfect, beautiful sunny warm days and cool nights! The pool was amazing, kyaking was a blast!! Truely could stay here forever!! Love this place!! Beautiful home and location, couldn't ask for much more. All the comforts of home and then some!! I can't wait to plan for next year! Thanks again Meg!
