"My wife, our 16 yr. old daughter, her best friend, and I arrived Easter Sunday 2015 and stayed for the week. What a great trip and awesome house. The location is perfect (half way between the head springs and the gulf) and the house was super clean and very comfortable with all the amenities you could want or need. Super comfy beds, neat shower, covered parking, and music piped throughout the house. FYI - AT&T cell signal is almost non existent but we had great WIFI and the house phone to give out for those needing to get in touch with us. We brought our own kayaks but it was nice to have the owner's available. The location was perfect for driving our kayaks to the head spring to launch at Paddler's Adventure ($6 to launch each) and dropping off one of us at Rogers Park for the shuttle back ($5.00) to get our truck while the rest of us paddled straight to the house just a couple of turns further down river. Even though we missed Manatee season by a week or two, we still saw and paddled with a handful. We also rented a boat at the nearby marina and went out to the gulf. The neighbors were very nice and recommended two great restaurants that we ate at: Guido's for great pizza and the biggest portion of Lasagna we've ever seen, and The Freezer in Homassasa for awesome steamed shrimp! If you're a golfer - there is a fantastic 36 hole facility about 20 miles north east (easy drive up 19 and cut over) called World Woods. Both courses are ranked in the Top 100 in the country with very reasonable rates and a pleasure to play. Use Golf Now for the best rates. We stayed busy visiting Clearwater Beach, Homassasa, and the Crystal River area aside from lots of time on the most beautiful of rivers - the Weeki Wachee. Just plain fun using the rope swings and tree jumps along the river in a place that looks like you are in another country or tropical paradise. The owners were super fast in responding to questions and made the whole process very simple and trouble free - much appreciated! We hated to leave but sure we'll be back."
