  • One of our best vacations in a long time!

    "This was our first time visiting this area and we had a fabulous time! Also our first time using VRBO and we're definitely spoiled after working with Cherie. She's terrific to work with, very responsive, and made everything simple. The house is just as pictured and described. We were there in March and knew nothing about kayaking, manatees, hot springs...but we learned quickly how to enjoy the water, the nearby springs, and especially the manatees. We canoed to Three Sisters (no manatees) and realized the next day that manatees were much closer. We just canoed/kayaked out to the bay and they were all around us. And we got a great picture of two manatees swimming in the canal behind the house. In addition to the kayaks and canoe, my granddaughter used the pool everyday. Like others, we took a day to drive down to Clearwater to visit the aquarium and enjoyed meeting Winter and Hope, the dolphin movie stars. My 30-year-old daughter said it was one of the best vacations in a long time and she doesn't give those compliments often. I can't think of anything I would change about the house, Cherie has it well stocked and we basically just bought groceries. Thanks for everything and for sharing your house!"

  • Great Getaway

  • Peaceful waterfront retreat

    "My husband and I just finished a week's stay at Peter's Dream Villa, joined by our 20-yr-old daughter. The house is right on a canal across from a nature reserve and just a short walk or paddle to King's Bay. My daughter was kayaking every day with one of the two provided kayaks -- just 10-15 minutes to Kings Springs, but she preferred a 45-minute kayak up to Hunter Springs where she could beach the kayak and then swim with the manatees using a wet suit we rented from a nearby outfitter. She saw 10 manatees, 1 dolphin, turtles, pelicans, lost of cranes. We also went to Homosassa Springs Wildlife Refuge just 15 minutes down the highway, and to the boardwalk at 3 Sisters Springs which is ground zero for manatee watching and just 5 minutes away. The neighborhood is quiet and safe and offers a nice walk with great views. So overall a perfect location on the Nature Coast. The house is spacious, well-equipped and comfortable. The screened in Florida room allows a view on the canal to watch the wildlife go by. It was too cold to use the pool but I could tell it would be a great assert in warmer weather. Kitchen has just about anything that you could want in terms of equipment and we appreciated the stock of some basic essentials (tea, flour, oil, sugar...). Publix Market just 10 minutes up the road had very good produce. We also ate out a number of times in the area, particularly enjoying Grannies for breakfast and Vintage on Fifth for our last night's special dinner (make sure to call for a reservation!). Their she-crab soup is to die for."
