Clean, comfortable, quiet atmosphere.

We have rented this place once a year for the past 5 years. We love watching the manatee swim, love the coziness of the cottage, and all the amenities. We can't wait to do it again.

This place by far is one of the nicest places I have ever rented. We love screened in back porch. Very comfortable beds, ac rocks! Flip is an excellant host and is there if you need him. Swam with the manatee . You can tell he has a lot of excellant return renters who care for the home. Our little cairn terrier had a abscessed tooth we had to find a Emergency vet in springhill and it was nice they were there. Everything is close by so get out and shop. Great time. We will be back. Thanks again Flip for being a great host and sharing your home.

Great cozy cottage that has it all

  • 5 of 5

This was one of my best stays with Home Away. The home had everything you could think of or need. This property had things that you may forget but are happy when you see its there.

Close to main hub of weeki wachee, walk to rogers park. Easy to launch your boat.

We enjoyed a nice week, with great weather and several boat trips to the river and ocean.

Saw many manatees from house and on river. Lots of wildlife around.

Home was clean and comfortable. Beds were very comfortable. Barbecued a few times then went out to many of the great restaurants in the area. Shopping is wonderful in Spring Hill, the city has really built up with some great stores. Owner was thoughtful and answered any questions we had. Neighbors were very friendly too. Ill be back for sure.

Thanks Flip

Awesome experience

  • 5 of 5

One of our favorite things to do was sit on the dock and watch fish jump and ducks swim by. We went canoeing and saw manatees. We also saw an alligator. The kitchen had all the right tools for our stay. The movies there kept us busy at night. The restaurants around are all great. there were many fun activities around the house.

Our 2 month stay was great!!! The cottage comes equipped with just about everything you need. The king bed was very comfortable, it has a washer and dryer, great Wi-Fi, and cable. It felt like home from the time we arrived. We spent many hours sitting on the dock or in the back yard relaxing. There are lots of Manatees in the canal. If you like eating out, there are some great places to eat from sea food to Italian and everything in between.

We did get to meet the owner (Flip) and what a great person. If you had any questions he always responded right away.

Would we stay there again? Yes we have already rebooked for next year and are so looking forward to it already.
