Beautiful location

Clean trailer home with lots of room for 6 women to sleep, shower and cook. We loved sitting on the deck in the evenings watching for the owls. We spent our days kayaking on some part of the nearby Santa Fe or tubing. The private park was a plus for an evening dip. Our host Jeremy went out of his way for us. Don't rent the motor boat unless you have a very strong understanding of boats.

Beautiful setting. Clean house, lovely yard

Nice place to stay. It was clean, had all the comforts of a home away from home. Wonderful views of the Santa Fe River, close to Ichetucknee, & O'Leno state parks. We enjoyed our stay at this house.

My Manatee House experience

We enjoyed our stay at the Manatee House so much! The fact that it has a full size private bath for each bedroom is a plus. It was very clean on arrival, has everything needed for a comfortable stay. We took the kayak trip down river and floated back to the house. The scenery was beautiful and the weather was perfect. Jeremy was kind enough to drive us to the drop off point. The deck and fire pit were amazing. He also clued us in on a great local restaurant that serves both breakfast and lunch, and it's only minutes away. The house is in a very quite, secluded area with no road noise. Thanks Jeremy! My family visiting from Kentucky loved your house and want to return when back in Florida!!! Jeremy was also very quick to refund our deposit and required no cleaning fee. Regards, Lisa Littrell
