Overview

About the property

Click on the VRBO video camera on the left to see video of cabin inside and outside area. Charming waterfront cabin has all you need for a perfect vacation. Water views from every window. There is a front and rear covered porch to enjoy a meal, drink and the beautiful Florida weather. Bring your boat and dock it right at the cabin. There is plenty of room to park your boat trailer- 2 lovely treed landscaped lots and 183 feet on the water. Explore the cool crystal clear 6 mile Weeki Wachee River. The river leads into the Gulf of Mexico and Mud River (about a ten minute boat ride). Kayaks (for 5) and a canoe (2) are provided free for your use. Or if you prefer to rent a small motor boat, the marina is a ½ block walk. The cabin was completely remodeled down to the studs and was just finished May 2012. There is a front covered deck to enjoy watching all the goings on at the park. The private large covered back porch has a comfortable seating area and outdoor eating area. There is an electrical outlet if you prefer your morning coffee brewed on the porch. There is a seating area in the yard with a fire pit or you may wish to relax on the dock and watch the fish.

You will enjoy the comfortable Sealy posturpedic beds, a washer and dryer, a 32” Panasonic HDTV with hundreds of crystal clear channels, wi fi (lightning 40 Mb), DVR, and free long distance. There is a bedroom at each end of the cabin. The master bedroom has a queen bed and a full bathroom (hair dryer provided). The other bedroom has two twin beds and a full bathroom with connecting door. The fully equipped kitchen has everything you will need-coffee maker, toaster, dishwasher, microwave, wall oven, and cooktop with vent. There is a washer and dryer inside the cabin for your use. The cabin is comfortable for four people, but if you have five we do have a new rollaway bed for your use.

Yes, there is new central air conditioning and five ceiling fans. There is a heat pump for the cooler weather.

You will not feel the summer heat if you take a dip in the cool 72 degree spring water. It is so refreshing!

Cozy and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

I absolutely loved this cabin. It was adorable inside and out. Everthing you need is provided in the cabin. They also provide cayaks, a canoe, and life vest. We had an amazing time on the river. We saw 3 manatees a lot of nature beautiful scenery. Amber was very nice. She gave a wonderful walk through of the cabin the river and all the nice things to do in the area. I will be back soon. Such a relaxing mini vacation just what I needed.

Pleasantly Surprised

  • 5 of 5

Vacations can be very expensive. Rather than leave the State, we decided to stay closer to home this year. We had read about Weeki Wachee but had never considered visiting before this trip. What a wonderful experience.

The house is located in front of a local park. Albeit we did not have access to the park because it was renovation, we were able to take advantage of many of the amenities in this wonderful town. We went hiking, canoeing, built bonfires nightly, swam, saw mermaids, and ate some wonderful food. The locals were extremely friendly. The owners were extremely helpful.

The house is cozy and clean. There are two bedrooms each with its own theme: bear and moose. Very creative. I do wish that the owners would take some time and fix the toilet in the moose room bathroom. Feels broken when one sits on it and constantly leaks during the night making a very loud noise when one is sleeping.

Other than that, it was perfect. While canoeing in the stream, we saw three manatees and many other creature species around the water. We look forward to returning one day.

This is a great location for this area.We had TV problems with the cable but used the kayaks 2 days. Used the ramp at the park across the street.Clean and well stocked with linen and dishes. Sat on the back porch every night.

Gorgeous cabin in very peaceful and natural surroundings

  • 5 of 5

We (2 adults, 2 schoolchildren) really enjoyed our autum vacation at the Weeki Wachee River.

When we found this cabin advertised on the website we knew we had to go there.

The day we arrived we had a really warm welcome from Amber who also helped us immediately when we had any questions during our stay.

What a privilege to have such a cosy place at this peaceful river! We made the most possible use of the kayaks (which were provided by the owner) and enjoyed watching the manatees almost every day. We also snorkeled in the river an saw a lot of different fish, a watersnake and turtles. Many waterbirds and other birds are also to be seen in this area.

The kids loved to jump from the tree-platforms which are to be found along the river or they used the rope swings. The river has the pleasant temperature of 72°F all year round.

In the evenings we were happy to return to the cosy cabin and cook a delicious meal. For us it felt like a second home, as no utensils were missing and so many extras were povioded by the owner (for instance a choice of dried herbs for cooking, coffee, zip-bags.. to mention just a few).

We can strongly recommend this place for travellers who enjoy a home from home in very beautiful surroundings. Thank you for your great hospitality Amber!
