5/5 Excellent

We absolutely loved this house! The location was perfect, just what we were looking for. Very peaceful and relaxing for everyone. The beds were very comfortable as well. A little bit of heaven here... loved the dock and wildlife! Lauren was great with communication and answering any questions that we had. Would love to stay here again in the future!

2/5 Poor

The smell that keeps giving... cameras everywhere outside!
I hate writing a bad review. In fact in the almost 20 years of renting with VRBO this is the very first one I’ve written a bad review for, I always read the reviews before choosing a property and if an honest one had been written I would have NEVER picked this property! So here we go... to start with the own needed to access the property multiple times which just feels invasive. There are cameras EVERYWHERE outside to “protect the property and make sure guests are following the rules.” I don’t know about you but I hate feeling like someone is watching me say nothing about a total stranger keeping tabs on me or my children! The owner sent a bunch of texts while we were there, which when I’m on vacation the last thing I want is to be tied to my phone, finding out when they can enter the property yet again because the security system isn’t working properly. It’s not like this was a last minute booking, get stuff done beforehand! I’ve never had to deal with this while vacationing. We did tape a paper towel over the camera that’s in the porch angled towards the dining room because I hate feeling like someone is watching us, maybe that doesn’t bother some people but I find it hard to relax knowing they’re watching to make sure we don’t have any parties and such, I was told. The house itself was beautiful and the location is very nice and quite. I’m thankful for the lovely gifts left to help mask the smell!! It has sulfur water that even after leaving the house for a several hour day trip we walk back in, and smell the most pungent smell STILL lingering, I guess from the showers and maybe the dishwasher running while we were out? We booked this as a family vacation and the kids could not get over the smell and hated the thought of bathing in it! The owner charges a cleaning fee however upon entering the property the fridge had not been touched, some food and beverages still in there. The last thing you want to do on a vacation is clean upon arrival. The floors could have used a good mopping as our feet were pretty black, not everyone likes to wear shoes while inside! The one toilet was dirty and had hairs, gross. The one bathroom shower would not turn on. Which no big deal, we just shared the master bathroom and got along fine. After the owner had been out 2 times already and we didn’t want a third visit, but don’t you think if they had cleaned this would’ve been noticed! . Again, overall it wasn’t disgusting but certainly not clean by my standards.

5/5 Excellent

Amazing place
This property is even more beautiful than the pics! The river is amazing and the dock and boardwalk are gorgeous! Perfect spot to get away and enjoy one another and FL wildlife. We will definitely return!

5/5 Excellent

Nice getaway on Wekiva river.
The house and property are as good as they look in the pictures. Very spacious and well appointed living area. The backyard patio and deck area is very nice and provides a great hang out area. The stretch of river here is fairly quiet and there is a lot of wildlife to check out. Highly recommended.

4/5 Good

Birthday retreat
Was a beautiful location on river with plenty of activities provided. Exceptional outdoor space for family activities.
