July 2017 Note - The new VRBO payment system does not allow me to give you an accurate quote for your stay. Please see the Rates section for a general idea of cost, but if your stay is not one week or one month exactly, the system may quote you a much higher rate than it should. Please contact me through the VRBO form, and I will give you an accurate quote. Thanks for your interest in our home!

Tastefully decorated, fully furnished 3 bedroom 2 bathroom home in prestigious Sugarmill Woods. Two miles from the Suncoast Parkway and centrally located an hour north of Tampa/Clearwater/St.Petersburg,and within two hours of Orlando/Disney World, Universal Studios and Epcot Center. Why pay triple for accommodations for less than a 2 hour drive!

Minutes from world renown Homosassa Springs Wildlife Park. If you have come to enjoy Florida wildlife, you should know that Homosassa is the manatee capital of the world! The local wildlife park has a wonderful feeding show with the manatees, where visitors can descend down a short flight of steps into the 'fish bowl,' a glass viewing enclosure set into the river where the manatees are fed - this is sure to be a memorable, up close experience!

This home boasts a large living room with separate dining room and kitchen nook. All amenities included. You will be inspired to entertain in the open floor plan home, complete with a beautiful kitchen with counter tops that seem to go on for miles! The kitchen is a cook's dream... And it looks out on the large living room, that has a powerful surround sound system for the entertainment junkie.

The fully screened lanai surrounds a 15' x 36' pool. Pool furniture and games included as well. Did we mention that the sliding glass doors open the entire wall of the living room onto the lanai? Yes - you can make the indoors and outdoors meet with this amazing feature.

This property sits on a large landscaped lot and backs to a deep natural wooded 'greenbelt' preserve. Nature walks will call you to observe our wonderful flora AND fauna!

Beautiful Florida sunshine awaits you - all you need is your suitcase!

About Parker and Amy Crowl

This Pine Street home was built by our family in 2003, and has been a place for us to go and 'recharge our batteries.' It was built with families in mind, as a place to come together and relax.

Parker and Amy Crowl purchased this house in 2003

Why Parker and Amy Crowl chose Sugarmill Woods

We are from Maryland, and have several family members who have retired to the Sugarmill Woods community. It is the perfect area for us to vacation - we enjoy the lack of traffic, the slower pace of life, and the safe, quiet neighborhood.

What makes this house unique

Our home is immaculately kept... The neighbors are so friendly, and it truly is a dream community. The local restaurants are sooo welcoming! Isn't dinner always better when eaten on the water, with a slight breeze blowing? If you think so, too, you will have plenty of options in Homosassa and the adjoining areas!

Amazing home with wonderful pool!

  • 5 of 5

We were so blessed to be able to stay in this wonderful home for over a month when we first moved to the area! My little boys learned to swim in the pool and the home was so spacious and comfortable! The owner is extremely friendly and was wonderful to work with. The furnishings were very comfortable and the master bath in this home was so luxurious! We enjoyed every second of our stay!

Thank you, Amy, for the perfect home away from home. My parents were able to use this great Sugarmill Woods location as a base to search for a new home in the area. In the week that they were there, they were able to swim each day in the pool, relax at the outside table, buy fresh fish multiple times for multiple dinners, and find a new home! As they worked with a realtor, they were able to truly get a feel for what it's like to live in the Homosassa area. They're hooked, and we couldn't have done it without you. They'll be moving into the neighborhood in June!

Fantastic house and wonderful area!

  • 5 of 5

This house is beautiful and very clean. We could not have asked for more. The area is quiet and very safe. Many awesome restaurants and sites to see. Unfortunately we opted not to pay to have the pool heated due to cost. Thank you Amy for letting us experience Florida for the first time in such a great place! Chuck and Deb

Great Home, Great Price, Nice Owner, No Complaints

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week there in June 2013. The home and pool were clean and in great shape. Many small, but thoughtful, touches made our stay pleasant and relaxing. The pool was a big plus for me, and I swam every day. The neighborhood was nice. Shopping and a theatre were within easy driving distance.

Amy was easy to deal with on the arrangements and we encountered no problems.

Our "Home away from Home"

  • 5 of 5

This is the second winter we've been fortunate enough to stay in this lovely and comfortable home. We appreciate working with the owner, and are already looking forward to returning in 2016 - clearly we feel very "at home" here (probably because it reminds us so much of the house we owned when we lived in Florida!). Just bring your clothes, food, swim suit and golf clubs - the house is so well appointed, you really won't need anything else. The location of the house is convenient to shopping, sightseeing venues, golf courses and other points of interest. We also had guests stay with us and we all had our own "space", which is really nice. We totally agree with the comment of "best rental ever"! Thanks for another great stay, and we look forward to returning next winter.

Rates & Availability

Taxes and fees are additional

Additional information about rental rates

The new VRBO Rate quoting system does not always provide our fee; we typically charge $1,200 per week, $1,900 for two weeks, and $2,300 per month. If your stay is over one month (30 days) we will charge at $75.00 per night; we are flexible with dates and do not have a typical "check in" day. If the quote you get from the system seems off, please submit your request or reservation, and we can adjust the price to reflect our fees stated above. Sorry for the confusion - the new system isn't quite as user friendly as the old one. Please also keep in mind we are not a management company or property manager - this is our home. We are not professional vacation home managers, just meticulous house cleaners who love Sugarmill Woods and having responsible adult couples and families enjoy our home as much as we do. Please be patient with us as we learn this new system! Thanks again for looking at our house.

Owner's Cancellation Policy

100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
