This was our second stay at this house. The location is perfect for us as it's just ten minutes from family who live in Brooksville. We also like the location as it's so close to the 'Adventure Coast', with plenty of stuff to do up and down the 19 freeway. We have two young children, and they loved visiting the nearby beaches, Sun West Park, Boyett's Grove, Weeki Wachi Springs, Honeymoon Island, local cinemas and shops, and using the pool every day. We will definitely be back again! The only reason this is four stars instead of five is simply because the house is a little dated, and there were occasional issues with things needing repairs during our stay: the bedroom blinds fell down when our 5 year old tries to close them, the microwave blew a fuse, and one of the toilets had an issue with the flush which needed tending to. We also saw numerous cockroaches during our time there, but simply gathered them up in a glass and threw them out into the garden. This is a great option for a fully equipped family holiday house.
This was the perfect house and location for what we needed! We were visiting family in Homosassa and this rental was close to everything. Close to shopping, Weeki Wachee, Homosassa Nature Experiences, restaurants and not too far from all the tourist stuff like Clearwater, Johns Pass and St. Petersburg. The house was neat and clean and very well stocked with all necessities. The pool and screened in porch are just fabulous! I would rent here again and again when visiting this area. Thanks Brian!
We loved our stay here! We actually liked being away from all the busy stuff! Loved having our own pool and the house was clean and perfect! I would recommend anyone to stay here! We actually made the hr drive daily to honeymoon island. Didn't seem like that long of a drive with sight seeing on the way! I hope we can make it back to this house! Definitely a vacation to put in the books!
The house was great, we all enjoyed the pool daily. The neighbors where very friendly, there was all kinds of wildlife the older gentleman next door pointed out to us , from peacocks squirrels and others . The cleaning lady lives next door and dropped in , which seemed a little unusual, and she seemed a little out there but overall a great time.
Want to thank Brian for the awesome accommodations on our stay in his lovely Home. We enjoyed the Pool every night and the beaches all day. Pine Island which is a few miles away from the Heather is very beautiful and fun. Every thing is close by, we felt at home.
What my wife and I experienced from 10/1/15 to 10/21/15:
"Villa" is not located in a "gated" community. There is no secured entrance to the Heather community.
"Villa" located adjacent to dusty dirt road.
Worn carpet with multiple stains.
Circuit breaker in off position for hot water heater resulting in an extended period of cold water.
Large amount of lint found in lint trap of clothes dryer.
Killed six cockroaches in the first two days, Probably due to previous occupants not washing greasy skillet.
Bath/shower fixtures missing in master bathroom.
Faucet valves leaked water in master bathroom.
Coffee maker and toaster quit working.
Could only use swimming pool the three times it was cleaned due to large drowned centipedes at bottom of pool.
Odors from peafowl next door.
Villa located approximately 7 miles from main shopping area.
