Location Details

This riverfront home has everything you need to spend your days cruising along the water on kayaks and looking below for the abundance of wildlife.

If you’d like to move a bit faster, rent an airboat, which will be dropped off right in front of the property. You’ll also find some paddle board, motor boat, and pontoon rentals just a short distance away.

Be sure to bring the kids to Weeki Wachee Springs, where you’ll find underwater performances by ‘mermaids.’

When you’re craving a nice night out, check out either La Bella Napoli Italian Restaurant or Becky Jack’s Food Shack to taste the local cuisine.

    Pam’s place was fabulous. We enjoyed the patio, the grill, and just relaxing outside on the river. There’s no better view. The steps lead right into the water. It’s fabulous. We loved it. Thanks, Pam.

    This review is the DIRTY truth! This is NOT a house or apartment it is a 2-bedroom mother-in-law suite with no door to close off your space. There is no kitchen just a few old dirty appliances. There is no food prep area, nowhere to plate food or make a sandwich. There is also nowhere to sit and eat, just wobbly table trays and a couch. Unless you eat outside at the bar. The property is extremely dated, and disgustingly dirty. It has not been professionally cleaned in a very long time and definitely wasn’t cleaned prior to our arrival. Upon entry I immediately noticed dirty floor mats at the doorways and in the bathroom, blood on the linens in both bedrooms, stained bath linens, all the fabrics were filthy or covered in an inch of dust. The shower was covered in hair and dirt. Feces splattered on the toiled bowl; the sink had toothpaste spit in it, the faucet also dirty and spit on. Dirt and hair all over the entire house. Years of build-up on the floors, baseboards, and all of the fabrics in the home. I was in a panic since I promised my kids this manatee mermaid experience. Thank God for Target. 4 bath towels, two sets of sheets, two blankets, and lots of bleach wipes later I was able to make it livable for 3 nights. Only we basically stayed outside the entire time. The washing machine was covered in dirty and build-up. There is an overwhelming stench of air freshener throughout, migraines beware. There are 3 kayaks on property, they are old, and missing plugs. You will sink if you try to use them, I know because it happened to my 85lb 13 y/o. The house sleeps 4 at most.I contacted the host and provided picture evidence. The host denied all of this and said the pictures were from my house, lol! iPhone photos are time, date, & location stamped. The host is and lurking around every corner, literally No privacy. The only positive was the location on the river, it’s perfect! The backyard is amazing, with easy concrete staircase entrance into the water, a large concrete bulkhead to tie off to or jump in. So, if you're into amazing views, other people's filth, and a lurking host. This could be the place for you. Contacted Vrbo multiple times to resolve….No resolution.

    Manager's Response:

    Owners response: "Dana, the right vacation home is everything, and we're disappointed if this wasn't the one for you.
    - This is a 2-bedroom, 1-bathroom house, you have your own space it has an outdoor kitchen and bar with plenty of seating to enjoy a meal. This is exactly as it's described and photographed in the listing
    - We have a great cleaner who does a great job and this unit was not dirty when you arrived, when you immediately got on your hands and knees it was because you were looking for something that was not there, you fabricated a horrible picture of this place and it's not true. If it was so bad why didn't you let us know or leave? You stated you had photos but none have been provided to me or Evolve
    - We have had no complaints about the kayaks and they are usable

    We work hard at making this home, not just the usual rental, we want our guests to escape and create memories to take with them. We truly go above and beyond for our guests, and we are confident that future guests will have excellent stays!"

    Me and the kids had a blast. Great spot on the river for watching wild life and kayaking in crystal clear water. The kids loved the mermaid theme of the house. Great swimming with a sandbar right across from the house too.
