Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: We purchased our dream island in 2002 and have since then worked hard to bring it to the standard it is today. For years we were very protective of this unique property and kept it solely to ourselves. As local business people, we appreciate the privacy, convenience and easy access that Dreamcatcher provides but the time has now come to share its very considerable charms.

Why the Owner Chose Homosassa, FL, USA:
We were captivated by the secluded, yet easily accessible beauty of the island. We loved the unspoilt beauty and lack of 'professional' tourism in Old Homosassa, the friendly and easy going atmosphere in the bars and eateries and of course the great fishing and scalloping in the Gulf!! Kayaking, jet-sking, watersports of all kinds are right on the doorstep, yet Tampa and Orlando, with their airports, shopping and numerous attractions are within an easy 90 minute drive from the boat ramp. We feel we have the best of all worlds!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The property offers views of the sunrises each morning - the more adventurous can take a short walk across the island to Tigertail Bay along a trail cut through the lush forest, and watch the sunsets on the other side of the island too! Manatee on their way to the Blue Waters pass by the door and dolphin chase the abundant fish up and down the river on almost a daily basis. A huge variety of birds, serenade you throughout the day and squirrels will amuse you with their antics. Sit in the hot tub under the stars, with your favourite cocktail in hand and gaze at the magnificent floridian skies while you wait for your daily catch to grill. lay back, relax and experience the Floridian pace of life - we feel sure that the magic of Dreamcatcher will soon enchant you as it did us.
