About Cindy Waller

Homosassa is a step back in time. We live one hour away but rush to the River every chance we get. We own the houses on either side of this property so it was a stroke of good luck to be able to add this cottage to our rentals when it came up for sale. This cottage has given our extended family and friends lots of vacation memories. The adjacent 2 bed/2bath rental is available--perfect for large families. Away from the hustle and bustle, it really is a place to relax and enjoy nature. This photo shows our boat as we passed the webcam at McRae's.

Why Cindy Waller chose Homosassa

This is a quiet, safe neighborhood where young and old alike can find plenty to do. Whether it's golf, fishing, swimming with the manatees, kayaking or just enjoying a quiet afternoon with a good book. It's very peaceful.

What makes this cottage unique

This property boasts of 75 feet of dock space. Drive your boat to the back door, clean your fish or scallops, and leave your gear for tomorrow's run. Manatees and dolphins occasionally make an appearance. Turn into our canal at Marker 76, right at the run zone out to the river.

This spacious little getaway is hidden well back off the river on a comfortable sized canal, sleeps 8, well maintained and has a very cozy setting. Being from the general area I've rented several places on the coast over the years and this one definitely ranks up there for cleanliness, curb appeal and setting. Plenty of room for big boats and the canal was deep enough I didn't run into any issues at low or high tides. Definitely would recommend and will keep this place in mind for a return visit in the future!

Highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house! We launched our pontoon boat at McRea's boat ramp and was a 10 minute ride to park the boat at the house. The house was so clean and beautiful. Loved the dock with the cleaning table. So peaceful having your coffee first thing in the morning on the dock listening to the wildlife all around.
