Nice quiet location but has issues. Reminds me a little of a rustic fishing cabin.

  • 3 of 5

First off let me say it is hard to point out all of the things wrong with any location without coming off as completely negative. I am very much a detail person though and tend to notice everything.

Pros:

Mr. Ferris is just about as nice as a person can be and very helpful. We spoke to him frequently.

Sharpest knives I have ever seen in a rental.

Major appliances were older but all worked great.

Plenty of kitchen gadgets.

Updated kitchen cabinents

Great quiet neighborhood.

Cons:

Terrible cell phone service that is complicated by marginal internet service. They ran a line to this house from there house so at times you have a lot of people using the internet and it frequently stopped working. This is almost a deal breaker for this rental.

Electric space heater would not keep back bedrooms above 60 degrees on cold mornings.

Bathtub is a hazard for small children as it is separating from sidewalls and kids and adults fro that matter can get fingers trapped.

Bikes had flat tires on arrival

There was no grill on arrival. Mr Ferris actually brought over a new gas grill after about a week.

Frankly with very little work, this could be a 4-5 in my opinion.

very nice

  • 3 of 5

We stayed here February and March 2016, very nice home, and very close to most amenities, 15 minutes or less,

the canal was nice, we saw couple manatees right behind the house. You can take one of the available boats down the canal to the Weeki Wachee River and see lots of manatees if you like. We are staying again.Probably not great for young families as the canal is less than 100 feet from back door, but we loved it. i give it 3.5 stars.

Absolutely wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Cozy and welcoming are the best words to describe the home in Weeki Wachee. The hosts live next door and were gracious and attentive while still giving me my privacy. The beach is about five minutes away, any store and restaurant you can imagine are within ten minutes and one of the nicest dog parks I've ever been to is in the area also. I would definitely recommend this property and look forward to visiting again!

a nasty run down trailor

  • 1 of 5

I was very upset with this rental. I was prepared to stay in an older outdated unit, and that is ok. What is not ok is the fact that is was very misrepresented. The outlets were not covered and I found that to be a fire hazard. The back door window did not shut. Outside under the deck was old buckets , flower pots and junk. The skirting to the trailer was hanging off in the front and a big section was off in the back. The outside eating area was a mess. The boats that were there had junk laying around them (old screws, buckets) that I really did not feel safe using them. The window sills were nothing but wood that looked as though they had mold on them. Curtain rods were PVC pipe! I would not recommend this rental to anybody! My arrival date was January 1st 2016 and I left February 3 2016. We had it rented until March 31 but had to find another place because this was so bad.

Old cottage charm

  • 3 of 5

Nice quiet location but close to shopping, restaurants, beaches and parks. Easy access to canal connecting to the Weeki Wachee river. Older house nicely decorated, unfortunately the hot tub was not working. Expected the BBQ to work on propane but discover to be charcoal. The view of the canal and the wildlife made it a enjoyable stay.
