You can boat, walk, ride the furnished bikes or take your golf cart to them. (golf cart and boat not furnished) There is plenty of parking on the property for your vehicles and trailers. It is easy to enter and exit with the circular drive. The dock you would be using is right across the street on the side road. It can be used for loading and unloading boat and mooring your boat. It cannot be used for fishing, sunning or hanging out.

Up close to nature is what you will get while staying in our 11 year old home. Nestled among the oak, cedar and palm trees there is an abundance of animals and birds to entertain you. You even have a waterview of the canal where manatees and dolphins also entertain on occasion. The screened lanai is the perfect spot for your morning coffee, afternoon cocktail or a siesta any time.

See the manatees, dolphins etc or just enjoy the fishing, sailing and golf courses, in this tranquil area of Florida, which is only a one hour drive north of Tampa.

The Nature Coast of Florida deserves its name, with over ninety-eight thousand acres set aside as federal, state or county parks and preservation areas. It is a delight to all nature lovers, with extensive boating, fishing and ten golf courses, within easy driving distance. Old Homosassa is a preservation area with restricted development and still has a lot of the charm.

The local supermarkets are only five minutes away,

About The Owner

We live in Clearwater Florida and originally started coming to Homosassa because friends had a vacation home here. While visiting we started appreciating what old Florida was all about. We bought this property to park our motorhome on and then built a house on it. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we have.

The Owner purchased this house in 2005

Why The Owner chose Homosassa

We chose to continue coming to this area because it takes us 80 minutes to get from our primary residence to our front door in Homosassa. Once you get here it feels like you are in a whole different world. This is old Florida and nature at its finest!!!

What makes this house unique

This home is immaculate, peaceful, comfortable and close to everything. Two of the boat ramps that are right around the corner launch you directly into the river. After that it is only 20 minutes to the gulf. The other ramp launches you into Mason Creek.

Our 4th or 5th stay at this rental!

Need I say more?

This house has all we need for our annual visits to the Homosassa area...responsive owner, clean, functional layout, comfortable furnishings, well stocked kitchen, plenty of parking, peaceful location, large screen porch overlooking canal for relaxing/nature watching, optional dock access, etc.

The only issue with this house is that if I (and others) keep giving it great reviews, it won't be available for our next trip!

Great Location for both Crystal River and Homosassa Springs

  • 5 of 5

Property neat and clean. Plenty of towels and linens. Kitchen well stocked for cooking for a family of 4. BBQ clean and worked well. Spent most of our time at both springs. Since the weather was cool the manatees were everywhere. The day we spent on the water was the best day I've ever spent with the manatees. There were so many at Homosassa Springs it looked like a manatee parking lot. I would definitely stay here again. Great price.

Wonderful house, very open, conveniently located...stocked full of puzzles, CDs, DVD for the kids. Couldn't ask for a better price or better vacation-landlords! We lost/left a cell phone and they were kind enough to ship it to us. Great folks.
