We had a great weekend in thus guest house. The place was very well maintained and cleaner than most hotels. The owners were friendly and inviting and made sure we had everything we needed. We look forward to another stay there in the future!

“Perfect get away”

Reviewed 28 Oct 2015

Our vacation rental was a perfect little piece of the charm of "old Florida". Spotless and beautifully appointed with everything you would need for a quick get away or an extended stay, right down to frosted mugs and a bag of ice! We will definitely be back!

“Peaceful Place to Stay”

Reviewed 19 Sep 2014

The location on the River is beautiful as well as the manicured garden you are greeted by when you arrive. Mickey and Marie are very accommodating and sweet. The place was clean and the online pictures do not give it justice. I was amazed how nice it was. Our family will definitely be back to stay!

“Beautiful Property and Fabulous Host”

Reviewed 4 Sep 2013

Our stay was WONDERFUL!! The home is beautiful and well maintained and incredibly clean! We have looked for a place to stay when we go fishing and now we have found it. Mickey & Marie are so much fun and entertaining! We so enjoyed our time and the fellowship that we had with Mickey & Marie. The beauty of the river was breathtaking and so peaceful. The dock is lovely and you will never tire of looking at all the different flowers and plants that Mickey & Marie have on their property. Thanks again for a great trip and we look forward to coming back soon! Randy & Darlene Bob & Lisa

Owner Supplied Testimonials

05/03/06 Positive My wife and I had the pleasure of staying in this property for two weeks in April, 2006. We were very happy with every aspect of the apartment and surroundings - and the hospitality of the landlord is super. The floating dock was perfect for us - allowed us to tie up our kayaks and shallow draft powerboat. It was a bit too early in the season for the best inshore fishing, but we caught redfish, trout, and several other species. Tremendous wildlife along the river - ospreys, bald eagles, river otters, manatees, porpoises, gators, turtles, herons, cranes, and more. Flora along the lower parts of the river are diverse and wild. We're going back!

Mickey and Marie; Well,today was our last day,and we can honestly say,that your rental home has been one of our favorites,if not our favorite. Your home has so much more than any we've seen. Most convenient. We would definitely like to stay again. We appreciate both of your gracious hospitality. Let people know about the rainbow river in your ad. It's one of the most beautiful places we've seen. We had a blast. The tubing,canoeing,and swimming was spectacular. Thanks for everything.
