About Georges Desseyn

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.

Georges Desseyn purchased this villa in 2008

Why Georges Desseyn chose Inverness

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...

What makes this villa unique

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).

Gorgeous house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house out for our stay in Inverness Christmas weekend. We had a small get together for my Dad's 60th birthday and the size of the house was perfect. The kitchen is much larger than the pictures showed, as well as the rest of the house. We were very impressed.

This was our third stay and we still love it. The home is just as described and very clean. The heated pool and pool area is fantastic, most of the time we stayed outside. We spent 2 weeks in this home and everything we wanted was available. We will return and highly recommend this home to all.

Great Villa and pool!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay. The house is in a quiet neighborhood that is centrally located to many activities in the area. We went to Ocala and Crystal River for day trips. The pool is big and clean. The house has everything you need. There are bikes in the garage, as well as plenty of pool toys. The kitchen is well equipped and even had spices, coffee, and a wonderful gas stove. The beds were comfortable and there were extra blankets and plenty of towels. There were even little shampoos and soap in the bathroom, which was a nice touch! The property owner was quick to respond and provided excellent communication. Check in and check out were super easy and convenient. We will definitely be staying at this Villa again.

Beautiful and affordable home to rent in Inverness Florida

  • 5 of 5

Well-maintained home in Inverness Florida. This is our second stay there and we really enjoyed the home and heated pool. I did contact the owner with a few concerns via email. Unfortunately due to hurricane Irma we were unable to do the laundry and run the dishwasher before we left. The power outage left us with no water and electricity.

Beautiful house, amazing pool, super cheap, you wont regret it!!

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect. Super cheap yet really really nice, super clean, well maintained, and well stocked! It had everything we needed, pots/pans, towels, sheets, blankets, even had some bikes to ride and pool toys! The wifi worked flawless, had tv's, cable, dvd player, etc. The pool was FANTASTIC, super clean, in perfect shape, and the screened in pool was excellent. My family enjoyed every minute at this house and would love to rent it again!

It is a very nice house

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this location, however there were a couple of concerns. Grill wasn't ready at time of arrival, owner compensated us wit 50% off price . Several large Roaches inside the house , my wife is deathly afraid of them. As for the rest of our experience the house was fine. Cleaned with all the amenities that we have come to expect when renting a house. If it was not for the two concerns mentioned above everything would have been perfect for our yearly visit.

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.
