Bedrooms 1
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 3 - 5 nights


About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 1-4)

This cozy cottage lets you catch fish right from your own doorstep! It is a small cottage with a nice size bedroom with a king size bed. The living room has a futon that opens up to a full size bed. A kitchenette with a full size refrigerator and stove and microwave. The living room has a beautiful waterfront view.

You can catch your own bait: pinfish, crabs or mullet. You will see dolphins and manatees from your living room. There's a screened-in bar area with cable TV and a comfortable chair to nod off in. You are minutes by boat or car to the Homosassa Wild Life Park. We can even make arrangements for your pick-up and drop-off at the Tampa airport.

There are many fine restaurants in the Homosassa and Crystal River area. Arrangements can also be made for drop off and pick up to the restaurants for your enjoyment of quaint Florida Southern cooking.

If you would like an IMMACULATE quiet place for great fishing or just a place to nod your head give us a call. I believe this could be the place for you at an affordable rate. I would be happy to bring you over to the 'springs' to see more manatees than you can count. If you are more adventurous you can jump in the crystal clear water and swim with the manatees.

You are welcome to bring your own boat and dock at your doorstep. If you are interested in a fishing guide I could arrange to have a guide pick you up at your doorstep. The Florida record tarpon was caught just a mile or so from the cottage.

It was fantastic! The perfect amount of space for myself, 2 teenagers and our dog.

This was perfect. The canal was right outside the back door. We even saw a couple of dolphins in the canal! Perfect to hop right in our kayaks and go to the Homosassa Springs, Monkey Island or just paddle around! Perfectly located to so many places in the area, everything we wanted to do was 30 minutes or less. The grocery store was only 1.5 miles down the road and you could walk to the Margarita grill from the house or kayak to it! Delicious food. The owners, John and Rosemary are absolutely delightful and are right there if you have any questions or needs. They are very respectful of your space. I was even able to bring the family dog with us. They were very kind to her as well, even though she barked at them! I can't say enough good things about our trip and rental. The area is very peaceful and relaxing! I loved having my morning coffee on the back porch! I paddled everyday and the manatees we're only a 15 minute paddle away! John even made us brownies to enjoy! The kids loved them! The house was very clean and well stocked with everything you needed, including plenty of toilet paper, paper towels, garbage bags, even k cups for the Keurig! They had shampoo and soap available in case you forgot yours, plenty of towels. I didn't have to buy any extras! We will definitely be back!!! We are already planning our next trip there! I love the fact that we could bring our dog and she had room to run around and bask in the sun! There is a lovely screeneed in porch with a nice breeze, a bar and plenty of seating space! This is our new destination for vacation and there are plenty of things we didn't get a chance to see or do! Thank you so much for such a wonderful vacation!

Great communication about property and trip! Cottage is beautiful and Mr John goes above and beyond to make sure all needs are met! We even had a manatee visitor while lounging on the back porch! We had a wonderful stay and would definitely stay here again!
