As a repeat renter of this property I can’t wait for My stay next year. This property is always clean and ready to go. The location is perfect for my fishing trips to the gulf with plenty of room and water to dock my 25’ boat.
Great stay at Flip's house, like being a guest of a close friend!
My wife, 11 y/o daughter and I stayed at Flip's house for a week over spring break in April. He has a lovely little house, nicely decorated, very clean, and well equipped with all the amenities you could need. Flip was super responsive, quickly answering multiple emails with questions beforehand, and he called while we were there to check how we were doing. It is stocked with needed extras like coffee filters, band aids, aloe, extra shampoo, condiments and spices, etc. The kitchen is well-equipped with all the pots and pans, dishware and flatware needed for river side meals. He has canoes, and fishing rods, and conveniently there is a small marina a few doors down with bait and tackle. The owner is very friendly and helpful. We brought additional paddleboards and a sea kayak and were on the water every day. The Weeki Watchee is incredibly clear, with nice little homes lining some of the riverway as it curves inland to the springs 5.5 miles away. What a joy to walk a dozen steps and be on such a lovely creek. The first night there we took out one of Flip's canoes and viewed a pair of manatee, on another night we canoed as a family to dinner less than ten minutes away at the Upper Deck restaurant, and had a very nice meal overlooking the water. If you keep heading in that direction you travel along some canals lined with fun homes as you head toward the salt marsh and the Gulf. From Flip's house you can paddle about 15 minutes and watch the sunset … which we did most nights. Another hour in a sea kayak in that direction will get you to the Gulf of Mexico, and you can continue to paddle along the coast. The house has a wonderful location! We went snorkeling with manatee in a bay and 3 Sister's Springs, and snorkeled down the wonderfully clear and cool Rainbow River. We used Crystal Lodge Dive Center for those trips. We fished off the dock, went to Clearwater Beach, and spent a day at Honeymoon Island State Park. We really enjoyed the park, the natural landscape there, the beautiful white sand beach, and the clear water. On the way home we toured the waterfront at Tarpon Springs. It was a joy to see the sponge boats, fisherman cleaning their catch, and looking through some shops; rich Greek culture and history there. We also visited the Homosassa Springs Animal Reserve which was wonderful. We had a great vacation at Flip's home, such a unique area, and he is a gracious and kind host. We'll see the lovely mermaids next trip!!
Wow! Wants me to go to the river and stay a while. Thanks for the review and I am looking forward to your next visit!
It is a great place to stay .
Thanks for the review, Larry. It was great having you return all these years. It's always a pleasure having you come and I look forward to a future stay.
Flip’s place was comfortable and convenient.
We found the place to be clean and the well located. Explored the area a bit, as we’ve never been to this section of Florida and found once you got off the main roads the area was interesting and quiet.
The owner communicated well and checked in to make sure we made it alright. He also left a few treats in the fridge which was thoughtful. We will return. Thank you, Flip.
Thanks for the comments and I look forward to your return visit. I hope you had a chance to visit some of our great local places to eat while you were exploring.
Clean well maintained home on the river with a floating dock in the back yard. Short run to the gulf
Loved my stay here. Close enough to everything you need while being on a quiet dead end street. First class property owner
Cleanest, most comfortable, everything you need.
2nd time here. and we will be back. Flip the decor is wonderful. I love art. And love the way you decorated the home. Everything is so clean. And the kitchen has everything. What we used we replaced for the next guests. We will be back. Next year same time.
Weeki Wachee is indeed a special place! Thanks for your return visit and I look forward to having you back next year.
Short drive to Weeki Wachee Springs State Park
