Wake up on the porch with a cup of coffee and the morning calls of song birds and water birds and fish flopping in the water. Bid the day adeiu with wonderful sunsets but don't go to bed until you searched for a couple of shooting stars!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: We live in Tampa Florida, about 60 miles south of Old Homosassa. We have 2 grown sons who are 6th generation Floridians! We have recently retired from a manufacturing career. Rivermance (our second home's name) is not a typical rental house, but a retreat for us and for our sons and their wives. We are hoping to introduce it to guests who will want to return every year! Please call us or email us with any questions. We are pretty knowledgable about Homosassa and cental Florida.

Why the Owner Chose Old Homosassa, Homosassa, FL, USA:
Proximity to urban Tampa made it very convenient. Old Homosassa is very close....but a world away!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love boating, kayaking, snokling, fishing, hiking, all nature, swimming in the clear crystal springs and with the manatees. We love great books and seafood!
