I am originally from the St. Petersburg/Gulfport area. I have been coming to Homosassa for years. My parents build 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 Old 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, but I think you get the picture. Thank you for reading!

Property was clean and comfortable. Was eventually as shown on website.
Property has updated appliances. Inside was clean and comfortable. We enjoyed our stay. Property owner was nice. Only complaint is we paid $150 cleaning fee which is fine but still had to strip bedding, had to put towels in laundry room and start load. Required to vacuum and sweep floors. Place dirty dishes in washer. Then remove trash. Just believe that is excessive for cleaning fee we paid.
great retreat on the nature coast
My family and I had a terrific time at this place. It was clean and well layed out. The backyard was a great place to lounge and enjoy the outdoors. I love Mason Creek and its location off the main drag. As stated the boat ramp is just around the corner. Tammy was an exceptional host spending an hour with me in the boat familiarizing me with the local channels. We could not be happier with this rental.
Great accommodations !
Beautiful house that comfortably fit three couples! Tammy is very nice and extremely helpful. We really enjoyed our stay and hope to return next year!
This is an absolutely wonderful home with gracious host!
We loved our stay at the Old Homossasa Hideaway and Tammy was awesome! She was also very helpful in navigating the waters out. I recommend to anyone you won't regret staying here. The house was fully stocked with anything you could ever need. All you need to bring are your personal items, clothes and food. We will be coming back!!!
On the back bay, relaxing, good location, with nice owner
Good location for visiting the Wildlife Park, even 3 Sisters Spring not far; grocery & a decent pub near by. Owner very accommodating, and there are kayaks & a canoe for your use (at own risk). Nice top half of house, well furnished. We were comfortable and enjoyed it. Recommend it to others, if you want to be away from the crowds, yet close enough to what you want to see.
Check out Monkey Island from the Monkey bar, its actually fun, but go before it gets dark.
loves everything about your home!
