Beautiful and well equipped.

  • 5 of 5

The home was nice, clean and stocked with everything you need. Basically just show up with your clothes and you're all set. Don't forget your bug spray, those gnats are a mean little mess. Rose and Capt Ron were very sweet and accomodating.

We did have a minor downside to the experience. The captains quarter area is listed in the rental info and we were shown the area during our walk thru, however we were not aware there were additional charges to use this room until we seen it stated in another review and in the rule/info sheet that was left on the counter. I do feel it was kind of misleading in the advertisement, based on the additional fees we chose not to use the room. Overall we had a good time, it's a very quiet and friendly neighborhood and the waterway is also very quiet. Hardly any car or boat traffic which suited us just fine. We would definitely recommend this home for a getaway.

Peaceful

  • 4 of 5

A great place for peace and quiet. The location is great for getting away from it all but still very close to good restaurants and entertainment and grocery stores. The owners are close by so all questions are answered quickly. We were very comfortable there and enjoyed our stay.

Home Away From Home!

  • 5 of 5

This has been our 5th year wintering at the Creek Side House and we consider ourselves to be very fortunate to have discovered this serene get-away from the cold winds of winter. The Creek Side House never disappoints ---- we find it most comfortable and exceptionally well appointed with all the amenities of home! Special thanks to owners Ron & Rose Treutel for showing us what Homosassa hospitality is all about and for providing a vacation rental home that can be enjoyed by couples,families & anglers alike! We look forward to returning again to this lovely slice of heaven!

Great house in great location.

  • 5 of 5

House is nicely decorated and confertable. The owners have stocked the house with all necessities. Nicest house that we have rented within last three years. Little notes give you helpful information. The owners are very friendly and accommodating.
