About Glenn or Laura
We live and work in Orlando, Florida but found our favorite vacation spots are not overcrowded beaches, highrises & tourist attractions, rather, we enjoy areas like this nature coast paradise. We chose this place because we felt others would enjoy a unique kind of place with lots of space, privacy and being on the water. We think our rental has a relaxing cottage-in-the-woods feeling, is rejuvenating, serene and once you get here you will not want to leave.
Why Glenn or Laura chose Old Homosassa
If you are looking for a private natural setting with gulf access that is comfortably furnished, well equipped & very clean, but is not fancy and not as pricey give us a call. We will handle your reservation personally and we respect our guests privacy first and foremost. Ask about the special services we offer.
What makes this Cottage unique
Lots of parking space for your RV, boat, etc. Very private, quiet setting of unspoiled nature with access to the Gulf of Mexico and other popular and endless waterways. Popular fishing and scalloping destination.

Just what the Doctor ordered! Peaceful, Quiet, Secluded getaway right in the middle of a small community. Immaculate, fully stocked and all the creature comforts! Just pack your clothes and a fishing rod...bait shop is just 5 minutes away on the Homosassa River. While there is great internet connection and large flat screen TV with cable, we spent every moment outside on the dock, exploring the property or relaxing in the hammock. Evenings were spent on the large spacious screened in porch where we ate our dinners (breakfast on the dock and lunch at the picnic table.) You won't want to leave! Nature lovers paradise, sunrise with the birds, river otters, manatees right off the dock, deer and turkey, water birds, hawks, osprey, too much to list....bring you camera and binoculars! So many stars at night you would think you were in the middle of nowhere.
Clean, well maintained in a beautiful, secluded setting, minutes from activities and restaurants.
We were very impressed by the beautiful view and surroundings. The home was immaculate and comfortable. The owner met us and showed us around. He introduced us to a neighbor and they helped us with a problem we were having with our boat. Although we decided not to take our boat on this portion of the river due to the rocks, we still enjoyed the private dock area. There are many activities and restaurants in the area just a few minutes away from this secluded home. We really felt at home here during our visit, thanks to the owner.
Thanks for the nice review and comments! Hope you are able to return again.
The Cottage was very clean and everything we needed was there, our st s y could not have been better

We enjoyed our stay to the fullest. Very down to earth, many special touches and a very clean cottage! A Blesing for Both of us! Thank you!
We are blessed to have such great guests!
The property allows for privacy. It was clean, well stocked. Fish right from the dock.
We came to the area for scallop diving and fishing. Had a great time with both. The property was clean and well stocked. Fishing from the doc was great. Hammock and canoe got used. We played games that were there as well as those we brought. Vacationing with teenagers: spotty cellular but great wifi . Turn on wifi calling for us adults.
Thanks Debra! You were great guests! Thanks for cleaning before you left! That is always a nice surprise since we do our own cleaning.
