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

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

  • 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.

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

The weather was perfect while we were there. It was quiet and peaceful, we walked and fished and visited with friends. Favorite place to eat was Pecks. Perfect yard to cook out, fish and watch the sunset. Will definitely recommend to friends.

Cottage was a wonderful retreat; enjoyed our stay and plan to return to Crystal River area.

  • 4 of 5

Updated cottage was very comfortable and clean. There are some changes that can be made to improve one's stay. The cable tv package does NOT include cable network news channels (CNN,FOX, MSNBC, etc) or sports channels (ESPN, GOLF, etc). The lineup was very limited. The kitchen could use a pair of scissors, a colander (strainer) and a 10" skillet. The refrigerator light did not have a bulb, which is an easy fix. The lack of washer/dryer would prevent me from staying more than a week. The area is quiet and beautiful, with lovely sunsets! The Manager Pam was very helpful, friendly and easy to contact.

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.
