About the Property

3 bedrooms, 2 baths (sleeps 8) Perfect Family Vacation Home

Super location to experience your next vacation adventure. READ OUR REVIEWS! This place is spectacular! Close to all the best of what Florida offers. This lovely Stilt Home (not a manufactured or double wide) situated on almost 4 acres of beautiful “Old Florida” landscape just north of the “Chassahowitzka National Park”. We call the property 'The Sanctuary' - here you can meander down 'Dream Trail' to 'Eagle Point' on the property. Eagles have been spotted flying over head. The screen enclosed pool is perfect!
Bring your own boat to use on Mason Creek, or to use on Petty Creek to head up to the Homosassa River. Both routes are a short very scenic ride to the Gulf of Mexico for renowned fishing and Seasonal Scalloping. Boat ramps are a short distance away and plenty of room to park your trailer at the house. A scenic 15 minute boat ride will take you into some of Florida's best fishing areas in the Gulf of Mexico or cruise up the Homosassa River toward Homosassa’s Wildlife Park where you can swim with manatees in crystal clear springs. It is also a 5 minute drive to the Homosassa Spring Park to see their exhibit up close.

Two bicycles are available. Two canoes and three kayaks are provided for our guests to enjoy right off the boat dock in our cove that leads to meandering and enjoyable leisure rowing . Or use one of the many professional fishing guides to take you for a fun filled day of catching redfish, trout, snook, grouper as well as many other of the gulf coast sport fish. Fish right off the dock! When we are down we park our two 21ft boats at the dock. Boat and Pontoon rentals are available in Old Homosassa for an exciting adventure on the River or Gulf. Our cove in cooler months is known to have several Manatee, last season again we had a mom and her new born living there. The list of birds and wildlife seen daily is too long to mention here. The sounds of nature are incredible. The house has a wrap around screened porch.
We are 65 minutes from Tampa and Busch Gardens and 1 hour and a half from Orlando, Disney World, Sea World and Universal Studios. Clearwater and its beautiful beaches and Aquarium , home of “Winter” star of “Dolphin Tales' are an hour drive from the house. Sandy white beaches are located in Chrystal River, a 15 minute drive or 25 minutes south to Pine Island. Enjoy all the activities Florida has to offer in a short ride. This area is remote enough to take you away but close enough to major grocery chains & restaurants. At local establishments like the Riverside Crabhouse, Neon Leon's, MacRae's, the Old Mill Tavern and others, you will definitely experience true American small town friendliness teaming with local color. There are numerous quality golf courses within a short driving distance and many Florida Birding Trails.
The park-like property is very quiet and has complete seclusion and privacy. In season you can pick your very own oranges and grapefruits. There is parking for two cars out of direct sun. The rear of the house is south facing maximizing the amount of sun during the day on the fully screened large kidney shaped heated pool (heated in the cool months for an extra charge). There is an outdoor shower. The sunsets are glorious. A dining area with chairs and table are poolside. The large Florida room has cable TV, a three seat sofa, a two seat love sofa and a large single armchair. The kitchen has all needed appliances, dishes and utensils. There is an adjoining breakfast area with table and chairs for 6. The utility room has a washer, dryer and a large sink. All linen and towels (including beach towels) are provided.
A maximum number of 6 people are accepted on a rental for the given rate. There are comfortable beds for 6 people. Up to 2 additional people can be added at $25 each for each night. A cot, 2 twin air mattresses and a child's Pack & Play are available for use.
The master bedroom has a King-size bed, en-suite bathroom with tub/shower and a walk-in closet. There are two other bedrooms, one Queen and one with Twin beds, ample closet space, and they share a 2nd bathroom which has a bath/overhead shower, toilet and vanity unit. French doors lead out to the pool area and a door from the Master bedroom and the Queen Guestroom lead out to the pool. There is a barbecue grill provided for your use. Holiday weeks/weekends use the High Season Rate. Visit sassahouse.com for more information and Information on our other rental property.
