Nice house but needs updating

  • 4 of 5

Our group stayed at Caper Cottage for 4 days to scallop. Boat dock and back yard are very nice. House was extremely clean and spacious but some items need to be replaced. Our friends who stayed in the front bedroom were extremely uncomfortable on the double bed mattress. The springs are shot and the thin egg crate topper didn't help. New mattress is definitely needed. Couches in the living room have seen better days - kind of stained and saggy. But other rooms and garage bedroom were fine. Be aware that although other reviews mention plenty of seating for meals, the kitchen table only seats 4 with 3 bar stools at the kitchen counter. All other tables were outside. Kitchen was stocked OK but some of the appliances (toaster, dishwasher) also need to be replaced. Be prepared if you plan on cooking and eating in because the nearest large grocery store is over an hour away. We shopped at home before we left and hauled everything in coolers. LOTS of pre-organization and careful planning necessary. Small local market has a decent but limited selection but prices are high and you may not find certain things you want. Fun days on the water though and good scalloping so we ended up having a wonderful time.

Super nice house! Very spacious!

  • 5 of 5

We definitely enjoyed our stay. The house is very nice and the private docks are nice as well. The swing on the dock was especially enjoyable! The sunroom was nice on a rainy morning with the windows open, as was the hot tub! The ride down river to the ocean is pretty long due to no wake zone, allow a good 20-30 minutes.

2017 Scallop Trip

  • 5 of 5

We have rented from Trish for several years and both her and the properties she represents are first class. She always goes above and beyond to assist with any of our needs. When we couldn't find a shrimp deveighner in Steinhatchee, she brought one from her personal home. We appreciated the effort. The property is fantastic and has everything we desire in a rental. Love the large kitchen and open living room. We entertain a large group each evening and the space is great..

Perfect set up for a large group!

  • 5 of 5

After a long day of scalloping this was the perfect home for all of us to return to. We cooked several full meals in the enormous kitchen and had plenty of room for everyone to sit at a table to eat. The docks were a great set us as well. Got some beautiful pics of the sun setting on the river. Would definitely stay here again!

Great month out of the cold.

  • 4 of 5

good kitchen and Florida room. Great view from the deck. Screened in porch with hot tub is a plus. Steinhatchee and surrounding area are a welcome contrast to the traffic and congestion in other parts of Florida.
