Inverness is about beautful nature and relaxing. It is surrounded by lakes famous for its fishing and boating, the closest one being a 2 minutes drive from the villa where boat rental is available.

Look at the crane birds visiting our yard.

Have a ride on the Whitlacouchee bike path, probably Florida's best bike trail. The stretch from to villa to downtown Inverness is wonderfull, passing along lakes and parks (Liberty Park, Wallace Brooks Park). Bike rental available through my property manager.

Drive to Homosassa springs and have a drink at The Shed: beautiful view of the Homossasa rivier with Pelicans, dolfins... There is a band playing on weekends.

Eat seafood in one of the restaurants in Homosassa Springs. The Freezer is known for it's hughe portions of steamed shrimps.

Rent a pontoon boat and spend a day on the Homosassa rivier and the Golf of Mexico.

Want to visit the theme parks: Inverness is only a 75 minutes drive from Orlando (Disney, Universal...) or Tampa (Bush Gardens)

Spend a day at Pine Island beach which is kids friendly and has a tiki bar.

Want the authentic beach life? Head for clearwater beach: wilde long beaches, rentals, shops and restaurants.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: We fell in love with Florida since our first visit in 1987 and returned every year since then. In 2008 we finaly decided to buy a home in Inverness and make it our place to relax.

Why the Owner Chose Inverness, FL, USA:
Inverness is a very nice little town in central Florida amidst beautiful nature. You don't have the hustle and bustle of the big cities and tourist centers but it is yet only an hours drive from the theme parks in Orlando or the beautifull beaches at the gulf of Mexico. There are numerous golf courses in and around Inverness, a bike trail, fantastic fishing...

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
In Jan 2013 we installed a state-of-the-art solar pool heating system enabling us to offer complimentary pool heating to our guests. This represents a saving of $25 per day compared to the average charge. A heat pump supplements the solar system in the rare occasions where this should be necessary(we do not charge you for this extra service).
