Property description

It is 7 miles to the gulf and three (3) boat ramps are just 2 minutes away. All the Old Homosassa 'hot spots' are right around the corner. You can boat, walk, ride the furnished bikes or take your golf cart to them. (golf cart and boat not furnished) There is plenty of parking on the property for your vehicles and trailers. It is easy to enter and exit with the circular drive. The dock you would be using is right across the street on the side road. It can be used for loading and unloading boat and mooring your boat. It cannot be used for fishing, sunning or hanging out.

Up close to nature is what you will get while staying in our 7 year old home. Nestled among the oak, cedar and palm trees there is an abundance of animals and birds to entertain you. You even have a waterview of the canal where manatees and dolphins also entertain on occasion. The screened lanai is the perfect spot for your morning coffee, afternoon cocktail or a siesta any time.

If you have friends that have an rv and want to stay close to you, we will be glad to accomadate them on the property for an additional charge. There are 2 complete rv hookups with 50 amp service, water and cable.

If your are a motorcycle rider, you will enjoy all the biker destination spots in the area. There is also an enclosed storage room to keep your bikes safe and secure!

Home is bright, clean and well equipped. Sectional in living room has 2 recliners where you can relax while watching the 50' HD television. Master bedroom has a television also. There is an outside fire pit for those cool evenings in the winter. Bring your computer so that you can stay in touch with everyone at home. Connect wirelessly or by ethernet.

See the manatees, dolphins etc or just enjoy the fishing, sailing and golf courses, in this tranquil area of Florida, which is only a one hour drive north of Tampa.

The Nature Coast of Florida deserves its name, with over ninety-eight thousand acres set aside as federal, state or county parks and preservation areas. It is a delight to all nature lovers, with extensive boating, fishing and ten golf courses, within easy driving distance. Old Homosassa is a preservation area with restricted development and still has a lot of the charm.

The local supermarkets are only five minutes away, Twenty minutes north is Crystal River Shopping Mall which contains Sears, JC Penny's and Belk. It also includes a multi-screened cinema.

Owner info

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.
