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!

Quiet with view of canal.

  • 3 of 5

The property was very quiet which we liked. It's back off the beaten path. The waterside canal was nice. The cottage was clean and met our needs. The neighborhood was a bit sketchy tho.

Excellent value for the money

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I rented this property for a month. It was very good. The master bedroom has sliding glass doors to the small front porch, which is not shown in the photos. The small back porch has a small picnic table and benches on it.

We bought a few

More kitchen items and left them there, including 2 wine glasses, 2 other glasses, and 2 bowls.

We did not use the boat house or the fish cleaning station. But we did launch our kayaks from the boat launch on the property almost every day. You can paddle to backwater fin’s for lunch :)

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

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.
