About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Just completed a complete (7-2013)remodel of our River front condo on the beautiful Homosassa River. Twenty minute boat ride on the peaceful river with manatees, dolphins and I have even seen an otter; to the Gulf of Mexico where you can enjoy fantastic fishing, snorkling, diving and boating. Our two bedroom, 2 bath condo is well equipped with a fully stocked kitchen. We have a dining table for 6 as well as a living room that over looks the spectacular river with great Florida sunsets. The condo is 1400 sq ft of living space plus a screened in porch.

Bring your boat and dock it in your own private, covered boat slip in the backyard. There is a cleaning station on the dock with built in sink and running water to clean your catch. You will also find a hose at the dock to wash your boat.

Situated across the river from Old Homosassa we are just a short ride either by boat or car from several local restaurants and bars. Some suggestions are The Freezer, with its giant Tiki Hut, built in a converted refrigeration unit in the middle of a working fishing fleet yard. Neon Leon's - Cajun food and entertainment . Macrae's riverside bar, known as The Shed to the locals, where parties are never-ending and live music most weekends. Riverside, with its famous Monkey Bar, overlooking Monkey Island, provides several bars and eateries. Patriotic Place is just great for an early hearty breakfast, serving throughout the morning and lunchtime. The Old Mill Tavern, the Museum Cafe, Dogs and Scoops, River Safari Deli and The Old Homosassa Smokehouse, the list is endless and grows on a daily basis. Old Homosassa is host to the annual Seafood Festival, fishing tournaments, raft races, poker runs, blues concerts and celebrates every major holiday in grand style!

Homosassa State Wildlife Park is just a five minute drive away. Grocery stores, major restaurant chains and the Crystal River Mall are not much further. The attractions and shopping of Tampa, Ocala and Orlando are within easy reach, should you be able to bare to leave our sleepy little fishing village where relaxation and chilling out is a way of life!

1 hour to Tampa or Ocala and 90 minutes to Disney/Orlando.

About The Owner

My wife and I have been coming to Homosassa for a couple of years and after renting several different place we fell in love with the area and its laid back atmosphere. We spent all winter and most of the Spring looking at places and finally found our condo. It's just the right size and its great to be on the main river and watch the boats go by and have my boat there under cover. My work schedule does not allow much time during the winter to enjoy the river so we are offering it to you.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2011

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We have been "snow birds" duringi February and March for the past two years. This rental is the perfect place to enjoy Florida. Easy access to grocery stores, pharmacies, banks, etc. The condo has recently been renovated and the owners have done a wonderful job in making it a very comfortable and clean place to stay. The river is just a few feet away and it's very relaxing to watch all the activity on the river. We were very impressed with this condo and hope to rent again in the future.

Loved the view.

  • 5 of 5

Loved watching boat and Dolphin activity on the River. Great location for local attractions and close enough to the Withlacoochee Rails to Trails bike trail for daily rides. Electronic recliner chairs were so very comfortable and the bed mattress the best ever.

Terrific Loction

  • 5 of 5

Spent the month of January, and the condo worked out exceptionally well - the layout is very efficient, and wonderfully maintained. The river front accessibility was terrific, as we towed our boat down from Ohio. Caught lots of fish in the river, even some blue crabs from the dock. Terrific restaurants in the area - the Freezer is a great local pub with wonderful shrimp/crab/chowder options - at very reasonable prices. Condo is close to everything, providing all the amenities we were looking for. Wildlife is everywhere in the area, had a great time exploring the backroads and wildlife management areas. Tim was very prompt in answering any questions we had, and a great resource for ideas about things to do in the area. Overall our experience was exceptional, and I would not hesitate to recommend the unit to anyone interested in spending time in that area.

I was looking for a place on the river to rent for a couple of months and was fortunate enough to find this condo. It was perfect for my needs. It is a second floor two bedroom condo with a bathroom in each room. The condo has excellent living space and a screened in back patio that over looks the beautiful river. Not only is it directly river front, it is wonderfully stocked, REALLY CLEAN, and the owners are very fair, as well as, incredible to work with. I would not hesitate to rent again and/or recommend to family/friends.

Leaving the cold North!

  • 5 of 5

Wanting to leave the cold North, I visited VRBO to locate a nice winter retreat. We were not dissapointed with our rental. It was everything that it was advertised to be. Clean, cosey, comfortable, well stocked, conveniently located and wonderful to watch manatees swim by in their own natural habitat. We hope to come back in the future and would highly recommend it to anyone wanting a charming place to spend the winter.
