Homosassa house description

Clean, newly remodeled house on canal of Homosassa River. Two docks and two double kayaks included. Two-night minimum stay. Screened-in back porch overlooking banana, orange, grapefruit, and fig trees.

Paddle to the clear fresh waters of Homosassa River outside of Homosassa Springs State Park, see their website. Manatees gather 300 yards from house to winter in 72-degree water. You may swim with manatees. House owned by Birds Underwater Dive Center, see website, who will rent you necessary snorkel gear and explain rules of engagement with manatees.

Great swimming in summer. Great fishing. Walk to state park two blocks away to view manatees and other indigenious animals.
