Great place for 2-4 people. Very clean and right on the water.

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in the Ozello house for a few days fishing with friends. The house was perfect. The porch was a great addition for all our gear, and the fishing was fantastic. I definitely plan on coming back!

great place

  • 5 of 5

what a great place to go on vacation, beautiful place right on the water, plenty of room inside with a great sun room and there's a dock right down the street my daughter caught a 4 foot shark from at night, and we caught red fish during the day and cooked them right on the grill. we never heard another neighbor the whole time we were there. can't wait to go back next year

Saint George Island, FL

Exactly as Advertised

  • 3 of 5

We stayed at the cottage with our three young grandkids. The cottage is as advertised, basic and at the creek's edge. It was clean, plenty of good towels and hot water provided and a quiet neighborhood with lots of wildlife to observe. It is conveniently located near Crystal River, Homosassa Springs and points beyond. We had hoped to be able to cook some meals as opposed to going out, but the kitchen was poorly equipped. A few pots and pans, some dishes and very few glasses. The washer and dryer are located in a shed on the lot adjacent to the property which is a bit odd. The TV has only major networks, no variety whatsoever and there is no DVD player to enjoy anything else. There is no heat in the bathroom and we experienced a cold snap while there so the kids weren't wild about showering. For the price, it is a good value, but a few minor improvements as noted would make a big difference to future renters in my opinion.

Quiet and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Very nice location. But probably better suited for people who want to fish.

Beds were not comfortable. Since we were not there to fish we missed a

Few things like television and coffee pot. The tv had only a few channels and

No network channels like Fox News and fox business.

Great Place

  • 4 of 5

First let me say this is for shallow water boats and experienced boaters.

Ok that said, this is a great little house, the property is large and plenty of room for relaxing outside. The mosquitoes are horrible but the two screened porches helped a lot. The larger bedroom ceiling fan is noisy, but the air conditioner works great. The sheets were soft and there were plenty of towels. kitchen had everything you will need except for a pasta strainer.

Already booked it again.

Car: recommended

Ozello is a small fishing village located on the north side of the St. Martins River. The Homosassa River is just to the south and the Crystal River is just to the north. All three rivers flow west to the Gulf of Mexico. The area is famous for scalloping, red fishing, trout fishing and tarpon fishing. Nearby attractions include Homosassa and Weeki Wachee Springs State Parks.
