About Ken

About the owner: A semi retired artist.. After an industrial accident I could no longer make a living in my chosen profession as a sword maker. I thought to myself what a hoot it would be to share a private island experience with others who would never be able to experience this elsewhere. Most islands start at 1000 a day with only 4 to 6 people! So I acquired state and county licensing and started renting in the winter when I was not on the road doing art and Renaissance fairs. It took off well and even now we are the only island to offer a 45’ pool with waterfalls, a picnic area and grill, 2 spas, 14 kayaks, 2 canoes, a 45’ Tiki hut with lighting and wireless music system, grill and wet bar. It seems we are more money, but if you look at the privacy and all the extras that would cost more at another rental we are a bargain and a truly unique experience.

Ken purchased this house in 1995

Why Ken chose Florida Central West

Why the Owner Chose Homosassa: If you have never driven out through the Ozello Keys, it is really worth the trip! The twisting, turning 7 mile drive out to the point is filled with breathtaking landscapes. A place of exceptional natural beauty, the undisturbed islands, inlets, backwaters are home to a vast variety of wildlife that is second to none. The Nature Coast is home to wildlife such as: Deer, wild pigs, roseate spoonbills, alligators, raccoons, opossums, snakes, great blue herons, egrets, turtles and countless others, including at least 19 endangered species.Peaceful, secluded and serene, the Ozello Keys are just a short drive from a manatee snorkel tour in Crystal River and are known for world class fishing, boating, birding and hiking trails.

What makes this house unique

The Unique Benefits at this House:

2 full 2 bedroom 1.5 bath each homes, 2 living rooms, 2 kitchens, 2 decks

45' solar heated pool with 2 - 32' waterfalls, wet bar all LED lit. 45' Tiki hut with ceiling fans, wireless music, rope lighting wet bar and state park type grill all available for your use 24 hours a day.. Tiki hut will seat 38 or so for reunions or weddings. We are the only location set up to handle groups over 12 people

We also are over 1/2 out to the Scallop beds and can save you about 2 boating hours a day on your trip in and out. Saving you a lot of gas and time especially if a larger group and running several boats

Guestbook comments from the owner

for a long time I never advertized in Citrus as figuerd you live hre why wyould book a place to stay here. In the last year or so have had many who had familys that over ran there house or wanted to come see them but din't want to over run them. So the island works well for your situation. You get some time out on the retreat and your family has a great place to spend time with you and explore old time Florida island living. Look forward to you all coming back next year
