Homosassa house description
Meticulously remodeled specifically to be the best vacation rental in the area, Otter's Den is wheel chair friendly with a chair lift in the garage and 3ft or wider doors throughout except in the guest hallway, bedroom and bath. 60 ft of dock space on a deep water canal means your boat is in your back yard ready to head for the Gulf, the springs, or even a waterfront restaurant. Most furniture and appliances are brand new including all beds (King in master bedroom, 2 twins that can be moved together in the guest bedroom.) Master bath area has a walk in closet, travertine (real stone) shower stall, and new toilet, sink, exhaust fan and light fixtures. Guest bath has tub, shower, and is newly tiled with all new fixtures as well. the kitchen and dining area sports a new dishwasher, electric stove with stainless hood, built in microwave, a huge walk-in pantry, double door refrigerator with ice maker and through the door water dispenser, toaster, blender, and quality flatware and service for 8. There is a 60 inch plasma TV in the living room, and LCD TV's in the bedrooms and kitchen. The home has vaulted ceilings and an 'open air' feel with lots of skylights and pocket doors that disappear into the walls leaving a vast open view of the spacious deck, the dock, the water and wildlife. A large 2 car garage and driveway should take car of your vehicles, but there is extra parking nearby for boat trailers and possibly an RV. Recreational amenities include 2 bicycles, a double kayak, a single kayak, canoe, 2 spinning rods with tackle for fishing off the dock. Serious anglers should bring their own gear. A 13ft Carolina Skiff with 2 bench seats, Bimini top and 9.9 hp Evinrude four stroke motor is available to qualified boaters for an additional fee. The house is on a private paved single lane road facing 3 acres of undeveloped deciduous woods. Most houses in this neighborhood are owned by weekenders who come 'up to the river' for fishing, boating, or just to relax.

- Old Homosassa is a picturesque old Florida fishing village located on a beautiful little river - 7 miles from the springs to the Gulf of Mexico. The house is on deep water Otter Creek, just off the main river, and only 1/2 mile from a state kayak park with an observation tower overlooking the Chasahowitzka wildlife reserve. A bicycle can get you anywhere, even off road into the reserve. Most popular activities are kayaking, fishing, boating, scalloping, snorkeling, and swimming in the spring's 'blue water.' It's one mile to MaCrae's waterfront bait house and bar and Nativie Sun tours offering air boat rides through the vast tributaries and backwaters, fishing and scalloping trips. The wildlife park is a must see. While they specialize in manatee rehabilitation, all the birds and animal species native to Florida are there. There's even an observation room sunken into the fresh water spring where you see multitudes of both fresh and salt water fish species swimming wild. A favorite activity is just sitting on the dock with or without a fishing rod. You can see manatees, dolphin, river otter, great blue herons, bald eagles, turtles, an occasional alligator and much more. ...moreless

Owner response: Thank you Missy - and if my detective work is correct, she is the guest that left the copper and colored glass tiki torches. What a lovely gift and wonderful addition to the deck and patio.
What a great house.
What a great house.
This is easily the most pleasant rental we have had. Loved Homosassa, the local restaurants, and especially the house. The owners have just finished a complete remodeling, landscaping and deck construction of this property. Everything is as good as they say/picture or better - no disappointments at all. The house is bright and sunny, all appliances are new and the dock and waterway are first class. The location is quiet and the people of Homosassa are great. We understand that the owners are nearby if corrections are needed but we had none. PS-were not related here just happened to find this rental and hope to return for a longer stay.

About the owner: While building our little pocket cruiser my wife and I decided, finally, to move to our favorite waterfront Florida getaway - Old Homosassa. We'd been visiting here and bringing friends for years and always dreamed of living here permanently. Now we do!
Why the Owner Chose Homosassa:
When another house in our quiet neighborhood became available, we bought from the owner before it was ever listed on the market. The neighborhood is perfect, the house is well constructed and has always been well cared for, and the waterfront location is the best in the area. Had the house been available when we were shopping for ourselves, I'm sure we'd be living there now.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
60 feet of dock space on a deep canal 1/2 mile from the Homosassa River, 3 miles from the Gulf of Mexico makes the house a boater's dream. The rear deck is huge, the back porch/family room, living room, kitchen and master bedroom all have great water views and north light without glare.
