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.

Great time with Scalloping Group

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the Caper for our Scalloping adventure. We limited out each day and cooked the catch once we got back. Having a private dock for our boat was a real asset to our trip. There is a boat ramp just the other side of the Landing for launching. The boat ride to the mouth of the river was scenic and relaxing. Our group of 8 adults will make this a yearly trip. Thanks.
