Great location and property

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Meg’s place. Easy kayak ride to the Weeki Wachee river and right near hospital hole. We caught crabs for dinner, swam in the pool, kayaked the river and saw some manatees. My 10 yo even got to pet a manatee when a group of three came right up to the dock. The house is super comfortable and clean. It had literally everything we needed. The kayaks were in fantastic condition and the pool was a huge plus. My kids loved the game room. We loved the screened porch. They didn’t catch any fish at the house - maybe they weren’t biting? But loved their fishing charter with Captain Keith of Bulldog Fishing Charters.

Thanks for sharing your place with us, Meg!

Absolutely superior property and location!

  • 5 of 5

This home has many more amenities and better location than most of the available homes on the water. On a nice wide channel off the main river just enough to be private, yet very accessible for paddle boarding and kayaking.

The pool was a welcome surprise for cooling off in between activities, yard is very well landscaped, even has timed lighting for extra outdoor ambiance.

The owner is very good at communication and the home was completely ready when we arrived. We intend to return for another excellent experience in the near future!!

Great place to stay, especially with a large family. Meg was terrific to deal with.

Have a fun family experience in this roomy home. Manatees come by daily. Caught a 5 pound large mouth bass right at the dock.

Super house, great location for families & friends

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd year vacationing at Meg's house. And yes, you really can swim with Manatee's as we did several times. We have already re-booked for 2018. My only wish is that I could magically add 2 more bedrooms to the existing 3 so we could have more friends and family to stay with us and enjoy the Weeki Wachee! See my review from 2/17/2016 for all the other accolades regarding the house and activities. Can't wait for 2018!

Very disappointed

Will not be returning. Due to unwarranted holding of partial deposit.

Renters beware.

Everything and More!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 adults and 4 children had the best five days at Weeki Wachee and Rental 911060. The home was spacious, the AC worked great, the beds were comfortable, and being on the corner lot with a pool to boot was just perfect for our four grandchildren. They stayed in the water, whether it was the Gulf (scalloping), the canal (fishing and swimming) and the pool (just having fun) and took fun to the MAX! The Master Suite was so large and spacious and the walk-in shower was so wonderful. The downstairs playroom with pool table kept the kids occupied in the early morning hours while us adults were getting our beauty sleep. We also loved the stone dragons that would spew canal water on either side of the on-site boat ramp. The kids and visitors just loved those! We honestly couldn't ask for a better vacation home. We plan on coming back next year!
