Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: We live in Clearwater Florida and originally started coming to Homosassa because friends had a vacation home here. While visiting we started appreciating what old Florida was all about. We bought this property to park our motorhome on and then built a house on it. When our motorhome friends visited they always stay with us. Some come and stay in there rv. All have said that it is nicer than most of the campgrounds they have visited. We also purchased a waterfront lot in 2005 with the plans to put a boat dock and lift. on it. We have just completed those plus have a new home on it. That is why we are now making this home a vacation rental. We hope you guys will enjoy it as much as we have.
Why the Owner Chose Homosassa: We chose to continue coming to this area because it takes us 80 minutes to get from our primary residence to our front door in Homosassa. Once you get here it feels like you are in a whole different world. This is old Florida and nature at its finest!!!
The Unique Benefits at this House: This home is immaculate, peaceful, comfortable and close to everything. Two of the boat ramps that are right around the corner launch you directly into the river. After that it is only 20 minutes to the gulf. The other ramp launches you into Mason Creek.
