Come relax and escape from it all in real Florida. The Ozello keys are a string of islands on Floridas nature coast that are fully accessible by car. Nestled between Homosassa Springs and Crystal River. This 2 bedroom/ 2 bath stilt home sits on a peninsula. It is fully furnished with all of the creature comforts of home including linens, dishes, spices, etc. It has a full kitchen, washer, dryer, 2 x flat screen TV's, wifi, Netflix, DVD player, grill, and covered parking. It can sleep a maximum of 7 with a queen bed in each bedroom, a premium (sleeps like a regular bed) queen size sleeper sofa in living room, as well as a twin size sleeper loveseat in the master bedroom. There are 2 elevated decks outside to enjoy as well as a large fire pit down by the water to make memories at. Also included are 3 kayaks for your use as well as limited fishing equipment and tackle. Kayaks and small boats can be used from the back yard. Boat ramp and marina is less than 1.5 miles away. Lots of things to do if you are looking for activities. Year round there is great fishing and nature watching from the back yard as well as seeing dolphin and manatees wondering through. Go down to the marina and see the area on an airboat tour. A quick trip up the road for a meal at either Backwater Fins or the historic Pecks restaurant. Maybe go explore Homosassa Springs and Crystal River, each about 10 miles away, there is always something going on. Little over an hour from Tampa or Orlando. Must be ok with friendly dogs because neighbor dogs will almost always come over to say hi. No gatherings or events over 12 people.

About Jenna and Justin Fletcher
We live about an hour from this property. Our family uses it to escape from the hustle and bustle of Tampa. It's our quick and easy vacation without having to leave the area. We enjoy fishing, airboating, scalloping, and everything this great state has to offer. This place lets our kids see the real Florida!

Clean secluded relaxing and owners were wonderful
Great getaway, well maintained, secluded, friendly owners, great sunsets and access to fishing!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Ozello House. The owners were helpful and easy to work with. The house is well maintained, lots of outdoor porch space, stocked with pretty much everything you would need in the kitchen (except food of course), washer/dryer and dishwasher were nice to have. There is a great fire pit area down near the creek - great to use the crab traps and catch the sunsets and a large covered parking area under the house.
Ozello truly is a hidden gem if you are looking for a rural get away that is secluded from the tourist areas on this part of the coast. There are a handful of restaurants and bars in the Ozello area that have good reviews (and we enjoyed them), and yet you are not too far away from the mainland with shopping and more restaurants.
If you are boating/scalloping there are several places to launch a boat including a local marina and a couple of public ramps, or you can easily find a charter between Crystal River and Homosassa.
Its a beautiful area and the Ozello house exceeded our expectations. Thanks to the owners for providing a great place to getaway and unplug! We will definitely go back!
Nice quite location
Roomy, two queen size beds and two baths. Nice decks and firepit area. Reasonably priced.
We loved this property!
Just spent 6 days at this property.
We thoroughly enjoyed the peace and quiet. Property was clean and well appointed.
Justin was very available and responded quickly to any questions.
We rented a boat from his Dad’s marina and we had a blast. Marina staff was very helpful and even guided us out to the Gulf!
We would definitely go again!
Pet friendly, fun retreat!
We so enjoyed our stay at this semi-secluded home. Kayaking, crabbing, right from the bank, tranquil days and evenings were highlights. The owners assistance with helping us find a place to leave our pontoon nearby was instrumental in our fun, as scalloping was our mission and it was a tremendous success thanks to Justin's guidance and the good folks at St. Martin's Outpost Marina. Our dogs had a good time as well and even made new friends with the neighbor dogs, who treated us like family!! We felt quite at home and did not want for anything. As with any place in Florida, be sure to bring your bug repellant, but aside from the typical pests we could not have had a better experience. Hope to do this again.
Perfect get away
My family really enjoyed staying on this property, it was a beautiful area and very relaxing! I would highly recommend staying here! Place was very cute, clean, and had everything we needed for the weekend.
