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.

PERFECT LITTLE GETAWAY
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!
Thanks for staying with us. We would love to have you back!
The place is great! Just enough off the main road so it is very quiet.
We had a great time. The place is very clean and spacious. Enjoyed sitting in the screen room and watching the mullets jump. The kitchen has everything you could need. We hope to come back again.
Wonderful location for exploring
As two women traveling with two teenagers, the waterfront cottage was perfect for us. In fact, when we first arrived and walked through the front door and saw through to the back screened porch and the canal beyond, one of the boys asked, "Can we stay longer?" We began exploring immediately, getting the kayaks out and hopping on the water. We ended up paddling to The Freezer, thanks to the recommendation of a neighbor on the canal, and ate our fill of shrimp and crab legs. Awesome!
The rest of the visit was just as fun. With the Wildlife State Park just around the corner by car, the protected marshland just a few minutes away by kayak, the crystal-blue-green waters of the springs in every direction--well, we ran out of time before we ran out of things to do.
Recommendations: paddle the Weeki Wachee River and the Chaz. (Three Sisters Springs was way too crowded for us.)
The cottage was a delight to stay in. The teens loved the loft bedroom, while we grown-ups appreciated the well-stocked kitchen, the two baths, the W/D, and the master bedroom off down its own hall.
We all agreed we'd love to come back!
Very nice place
Very cozy and homie place. My family and friends enjoyed the stay. The owner is the sweetest lady.We’ll definitelly come back.
Great time. Super clean and great location!
We had a wonderful stay at this adorable home. The place was spotless and well equipped with everything we needed. It was great to have use of the 3 kayaks to go out from the dock whenever we wanted. Cindy was very quick to call me back when I had a question. we would definitely book this place again.
So glad you enjoyed your stay. Would love to have you visit again.
