The cottage, dock and location are all as described, if not better. We had plenty of room to park our vehicles and the boat trailer. The location has a whole lot of dock space, perfect for our 24' twin engine boat. The waterway to the river was was deep and wide enough to navigate, without any problems. The property is very well kept and there are many new upgrades and appliances inside. We had an extra couple come visit for the weekend and there was plenty of room and everyone was very comfortable. We only stayed for four days, but every day was perfect....sun, scallops, absolutely gorgeous river rides, ocean, a refreshing cool spring....then return to a beautiful/clean home for dinner and relaxing. We did enjoy one night out at Leon Neon's. The food and the entertainment can't be beat. I would like to express my appreciation to the owner (Cindy) for being so kind and going out of her way to make sure we felt welcome and had a good time. She is extremely generous to share her beautiful place with us and to spend so much of her personal time answering questions. This is a great location on the river and land (very close to Publix, shopping and restaurants). I would recommend this property to anyone looking to spend some enjoyable time on the water, whether you leave the house or not. Thanks again Cindy!!!

Owner response: Deanna I'm so glad you enjoyed the "Homosassa Experience" as much as we do! Now that scallop season is over, we have started the renovations so that our guests will have a second bath!!! A major priority for us women. This was our first year renting the cottage and we didn't know what to expect, but I have to say we have met so many wonderful, kind and caring people such as you. It has been a wonderful experience for us, too. Hope to see you next summer!

This was a great place to stay. Spacious inside, very homey feeling and beautiful boat dock. Having the dock and cleaning station was a plus to a long day of fun. The owners are great, friendly people who made us feel very welcome there. We saw Manatee's twice and it's only 15 minutes to the run. Can't way to stay there again this weekend.

Perfect house, perfect location, perfect amenities!!!

Had a decent size group stay over a weekend & it was outstanding... Only minutes away from a local grocery store & town & located DIRECTLY ON THE WATER... We brought our boat out and let me tell you, being able to pull up directly to your own dock (an extremely well kept dock) is like no other. Everything about the house was awesome. Very clean, modern tastefully decorated to the nines! Landscaping was impeccable & the fish cleaning station... OH BOY, that was a treat! The hosts made everything literally stress free & easy with their great communication & laid back vacation mindset. I've recommended this house to EVERYONE & they're all planning their fam vacas & weekend getaways... We will be returning without a doubt... Everything was A+ -Steve W

Owner response: Steve, I'm so glad your group had a great time! We are planning after September to add a second bath to make the cottage even more accommodating to our guests. We strive to outfit the cottage with all the amenities that we would enjoy if we were renting. We welcome all comments to achieve that goal. Cindy Waller

About the owner: Homosassa is a step back in time. We live one hour away but rush to the River every chance we get. We own the houses on either side of this property so it was a stroke of good luck to be able to add this cottage to our rentals when it came up for sale. This cottage has given our extended family and friends lots of vacation memories. The adjacent 2 bed/2bath rental is available--perfect for large families. Away from the hustle and bustle, it really is a place to relax and enjoy nature.
Why the Owner Chose Homosassa:
This is a quiet, safe neighborhood where young and old alike can find plenty to do. Whether it's golf, fishing, swimming with the manatees, kayaking or just enjoying a quiet afternoon with a good book. It's very peaceful.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
This property boasts of 75 feet of dock space. Drive your boat to the back door, clean your fish or scallops, and leave your gear for tomorrow's run. Manatees and dolphins occasionally make an appearance.
