                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2006

                      About the owner: We live in Tampa Florida, about 60 miles south of Old Homosassa. We have 2 grown sons who are 6th generation Floridians! We have recently retired from a manufacturing career. Rivermance (our second home's name) is not a typical rental house, but a retreat for us and for our sons and their wives. We are hoping to introduce it to guests who will want to return every year! Please call us or email us with any questions. We are pretty knowledgable about Homosassa and cental Florida.

                      Why the Owner Chose Homosassa:
                      Proximity to urban Tampa made it very convenient. Old Homosassa is very close....but a world away!

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      We love boating, kayaking, snokling, fishing, hiking, all nature, swimming in the clear crystal springs and with the manatees. We love great books and seafood!
