About the property

Direct access to the Gulf without all the main River boat traffic!

Fishing, Golfing, Canoeing, etc. - Lots to do! Book now for the 2017 scallop season July 1st through September 25th. Come stay in this 2007 split plan home on stilts right on Mason Creek in Olde Homosassa Hideaway waterfront. Fresh interior paint and newly redone back yard. The 2nd Level is approximately 1600 square feet with 3 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. The 2nd level is only accessible by stairs in the front and in the back of the property. Not suitable for children. There is 70' of private dock in the backyard. Minutes to the Gulf of Mexico and the main Homosassa River by boat. Great place to go kayaking, canoeing, boating, bicycling or just sitting on deck watching the boats go by or an awesome sunset over the marsh. You might even see a river otter or a dolphin right out the back door. Minutes to one of the best wild life state parks in Florida. There is a bird observatory within walking distance from this location. In the winter, you can swim with the manatees in the Springs, and snorkel for scallops in the summertime. Two blocks from free public boat ramp. Plenty of boat trailer parking at the house. This home has two sets of sliding glass doors onto the back deck. Lots of windows and natural light inside. Covered parking available.

About Tammy

I am originally from the St. Petersburg/Gulfport area. I have been coming to Homosassa for years. My parents built a house here many years ago. I bought this lot in 2004, finally building this home in 2007 just two blocks from my parents. I have been here full time since 2007 and just love it! My mother has since past away, but she lives on everyday in that she brought me to this place and made it all happen.

Tammy purchased this house in 2007

Why Tammy chose Homosassa

It's like entering another world when you pull into the driveway after driving in 5 miles of scenic road with no traffic lights. You don't hear any sirens or screeching tires. Sometimes when the wind is blowing just right, you can hear the drowning sound of the diesel engine from the shrimp boats coming back into the river from working all night catching your next lunch at the Freezer! On a clear night and because there are no city or street lights, you can see a bazillion stars at night.

What makes this house unique

I could go on and on but I think you get the picture. Thank you for reading!

Tammy's property was appointed thoroughly both in décor and functionality. We lacked for nothing at the house. It was clean (very important!) and suited all of our needs! The back yard/ patio area was awesome!

Very nice house, well-kept and relaxing location

  • 5 of 5

The house was extremely nice and had everything we could ask for. The back patio area was a relaxing place to sit and enjoy time together as the guys fished. We also made use of the bikes and canoe that are available. The neighborhood is very nice for bike rides. We enjoyed our stay and Tammy was great to answer questions and offer help with anything we might need. Would definitely recommend this property for someone wanting to get away and relax or enjoy the Homosassa and Crystal River area.

Nice property. Comfortable. However we were not expecting all the stairs. Very long steep stairs.

  • 3 of 5

Nice comfortable home. Would work best for family or couples wanting to canoe or kyack. Weren't warned of long steep stairs to enter home. Extremely difficult to get luggage upstairs, but we are senior citizens.

Owner's Response: Hello and thanks so much for the feedback. I am so sorry that you had difficulty with the stairs. There was verbiage included in the listing as well as in the agreement that you signed that states "accessible by stairs only." As a result of your feedback, I have brought that statement to the front of the listing and to the agreement for better visibility to future renters. I hope you enjoyed your visit otherwise. Thank you for choosing to stay at the Homosassa Hideaway. Sincerely, Tammy

Great place for all ages

  • 5 of 5

Our group consisted of 4 adult men for a long weekend of fishing. We have done this trip for 23 years and can honestly say it was one of our best yet! In a large part due to our accommodations. We enjoy all aspects of our stay. The interior is nicely appointed and very comfortable. We enjoyed the kitchen so much, we cooked in all 3 nights we were there! The outside is so user friendly with several sitting areas. One that included a fire pit that we used and enjoyed. The back deck and grills were perfect for cooking and dining. Can't think of a thing I would change and look forward to our next stay here!

Great Location, Great House, Great People

  • 5 of 5

Title says it all! I love writing good reviews for Great experiences. Its my way of showing my appreciation towards those that put forth the extra effort to ensure their guest a good time. For the fisherman. Quickest run to the gulf there is. Keep in mind that your running past some of the best inshore fishing Florida has to offer right there in Mason Creek. You will need to learn your way, But don't worry because the owner will put her boat in the water and personally show you the way. Close to public ramp. Great docking and fish cleaning on canal behind house. For the ladies, (not saying you don't fish) but knowing my wife. She loves clean, modern, comfortable and did I mention clean. You wont be sorry. Very tastefully and fitting decor. Forget the rest, Stay in the best! Just not too much, then it will be booked when I want to go back. Have Fun!
