Beautiful Home in the Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

This home is absolutely beautiful, the pictures actually don't do it justice and is exactly as advertised. We spent every morning and evening on the patio's enjoying the sites and sounds of nature in an extremely picturesque and relatively secluded setting, the days we spend on the gorgeous crystal clear Weeki Wachee River which was just a short drive down the street. Everything you could need or want is provided in the home and there is a convenience store and the Napoli restaurant within walking distance, the Upperdeck Restaurant is probably less than a mile away. The owner Dawn was extremely responsive and very pleasant to work with. I would definitely recommend the Weeki Wachee Retreat and hope we get to go again!

Better than advertised

  • 5 of 5

A gem of a place to enjoy nature from the perch of your balcony. Sounds of nature abound! Yet a 300 yard walk up the street lands you at the table of a magnificent authentic Italian restaurant. I totally did not want to leave. Clean, well appointed home with class hidden in every nook. Can’t wait to come back!

Relaxing getaway retreat home close enough for shopping and dining!!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the Week Wachee Retreat home was perfect size for us and close to grocery shop as well as dining local restaurants. The kitchen was fully stocked for dishes, pots, pans...everything we needed to make meals and enjoy our stay. We also made use of the outdoor grill! The owner was very responsive and communicated whenever we asked any questions. Have to say waking up each day seeing all of the wildlife critters and hearing birds was a real treat :)

Quiet, clean, comfortable and convenient!

  • 5 of 5

This property is everything the owner promises! Dawn was prompt in her responses and very helpful. We walked to the Italian restaurant, kayaked on the Weeki Watchee River and saw the amazing Manatees. Drove to Pine Island and visited nearby family. House is beautiful and bed was comfortable. We will keep this on our short list. Thank you Dawn.

Would highly recommend Weeki Wachee Retreat. Dawn is a great hostess. Home is very clean and beautifully decorated. So cozy and comfortable. Very relaxing. Kayaks were alot of fun. Had a great afternoon scalloping adventure with Captain Dave of Salty D's Charters. Would definitely love to stay here again if we're in the area.
