"The Shack", a comfy two bedroom fully equipped home sitting on the banks of the Steinhatchee River. Bring your boat and tie it to the dock, ready to launch to the Gulf of Mexico for fishing, scalloping, playing or enjoying beautiful sunsets.
Note, there is a separate rental agreement that requires acceptance and execution. There's also a procedures page that gives necessary information for the maximum enjoyment of the Shack.
The Shack sits directly on the Steinhatchee River. It has a fully screened porch which surrounds the Shack on 3 sides. The Shack is equipped with everything you need. Bed Linens and paper products supplied. One bedroom is a king, the other, two singles and a trundle. The sofa makes into a double bed. Kitchen has everything. Central heat and air will keep the temp just as you prefer. A shower downstairs is ready to douse you after a full day on the Gulf. A washer/dryer is available. . A chain link fence surrounds the property.
The private dock sits on the river front. There's a boat ramp directly across the river but it requires a trip into town. Another public ramp is available approximately 2.5 miles west. There's no pool but we enjoy a dip in the cool fresh river. Wear water socks. Swim at your own risk. We have seen an alligator before. Children should always be supervised on the dock, especially in the water. You will note there's a slide on the floating dock. Again, an adult should always be present if kids use the slide.
Interaction with guests
You will enjoy complete privacy at the Shack. It's great for families, couples, small groups who want to fish and play cards or individuals who seek to enjoy the quiet of the surrounding woods and river. It has something for everyone.
Other things to note
Your rental rate includes a 9% required Florida sales tax. There is an additional $125 cleaning fee. You will be asked for a security deposit which will be returned, $200, when you check out, assuming all is okay. Pets are allowed, usually, but I'll want more information. Bring your bug spray and flash light. You will need the flash light if you check something on the dock after dark. Bring drinking water. The Shack is on a well. Well water is fine for bathing and dish washing but we prefer to bring drinking water. Bring you own towels. Bed linens are supplied. A coffee maker is available but bring coffee and filters. A DVD is provided for movies. There is wi-fi and the password is near the television. A short application will be emailed upon acceptance for contact information. The application is not a contract.
Please NO cleaning fish or scallops in the house. Use the fish house on the dock. Check out is 11:00 am; check in at 4:00 pm. There's a 3 day minimum. Prior to arrival and upon payment in full, you'll get the combination to the lock box which holds the house key. This same combination unlocks the gates. Please turn off water valve on the hose to the dock before leaving and lift the ladder on the dock if you've used it. Large garbage cans are at the foot of the stairs for household garbage. These and other rules will be spelled out in the itinerary.
