About Jason & Patricia Bloxsom

We have been coming to Homosassa for years and recently been given the opportunity to purchase a home there. We are about 45 minutes away from the river and couldn't ask for a better location to buy or spend good quality family time..

Jason & Patricia Bloxsom purchased this house in 2017

Guestbook comments from the owner

What an awesome weekend we had. This house had everything that we needed. We grilled out on the back deck and cleaned our scallops, enjoyed great food from the local restaurants and swam in the springs. Can't wait to go back next year.

Homosassa Stilt House

  • 3 of 5

The house was nice but we had two major issues:

We had our mail forwarded to the house address but the house had no mailbox so our mail was returned. We changed the forwarding to General Delivery but in the process we lost some packages and crucial mail. We should have been advised of this issue in advance.

The street in front of our rental property has big potholes plus a big drainage problem and when it rains, a hugh puddle forms hiding the potholes. Car and tires picked up a lot of mud.

Also to call it a "river house" is misleading because the house is on a canal with river access.

The river photo is deceptive.

Owner's Response: Peter & Jackie, we are sorry you feel that way about your stay with us. No we don't have a mailbox at the home because it is a rental house, if you guys would have asked me before your visit I could have let you know this but I did direct you to the local post office and whom to speak with about getting a PO Box once you checked in. Yes there is a pot hole in the road but like I told you when you checked in, the road is a private owned road and they are going to be putting a new sewer line down our road this year and once that is done the road will be repaired, we also have a neighbor building a house and the big trucks coming in and out hasn't helped. Yes our house is on a canal and you can see that in the picture of our boat dock as well as by looking at the map. Everyone there in Old Homosassa calls their homes a River House, which our home is 3 blocks from the river. After you guys booked you asked to extend your stay through the first few days of April so your family could come down, I could have charged you the price for April but I was generous and charged you the Winter rate, thought we were pretty fair to you guys.

We booked a last minute fishing trip and the owners were very accommodating. Beautiful home!! Just a quick boat ride to the boat ramp and Marinas. House was nicely furnished, decorated and very clean. Will definitely be staying here again when we come back to visit Homasassa.

The house was like new! Big TVs everywhere, feels like it was just remodeled. Very clean and neat. Had everything we needed. The dock was perfect for our 26' boat and is as close to the ocean as you can get on the river. We had a great week and I would highly recommend this vacation property!

We are minutes from two public boat ramps and have several restaurants with miles (The Freezer, McRae's/The Shed, Riverside & SeaGrass Waterfront). There are several grocery stores close by (Publix & Winn-Dixie).
