About the property

4 bedroom, 3 bathroom home on the River

You can't miss this spectacular waterfront masterpiece! This 4,000 square foot home is located on a peninsula at the confluence of Price's Creek and the Homosassa River. The property has over 250' of seawall and a side canal with a new 50' boat dock and 5,000-lb. boat lift. The home is a fully-remodeled design showpiece with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the water. The open floor plan includes a top-of-the-line kitchen with fabulous water views. You can choose to relax on the lovely, large covered deck, and watching manatees and dolphins swim right in front of the house. Or you can take advantage of the many outdoor adventures available in the Nature Coast of Florida: airboating, kayaking, swimming with manatees, snorkeling in the springs, fishing year-round and scalloping in the summer. Bring your boat(s) and fishing poles! Homosassa is located 45 minutes from Tampa and 90 minutes from Orlando. There are fun waterfront restaurants that cater to boaters as well as grocery stores nearby. And if you love golf, see our newest VRBO listing 889416!

About Kathy Koslow and Peter VanDell

We are Kathy Koslow and Peter VanDell. We live in Weston, CT and have been exploring various parts of Florida that we could eventually call home. When we visited Homosassa in the Winter of 2014 we instantly fell in love with the Nature Coast, the village of Homosassa, and the people that live here. We were fortunate enough buy a little piece of paradise and intend on keeping up the tradition of sharing this wonderful home with folks who want to experience old Florida.

Kathy Koslow and Peter VanDell purchased this house in 2014

Why Kathy Koslow and Peter VanDell chose Riverhaven Village

The moment we walked into this house, we fell in love with its location and stunning views. Our house is wonderful for quiet weekends as well as large family scalloping trips and reunion celebrations. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

What makes this house unique

The house's location is spectacular. It sits at the confluence of Price's Creek and the Homosassa River. The land across Price's Creek is a nature preserve with no buildings, so the views from the house are of stunning old Florida nature. Manatees, fish, birds, dolphin play right off the house's seawall. We spend hours sitting on the deck, drinking coffee/wine, and watching the boats go by. The house is a luxurious, peaceful escape.

This home has become our annual family and friends vacation spot... the owners are wonderful!! We love hosting dinner parties there after a long day on the water scalloping. The views are incredible, coffee in the morning to watching the boats coming home in the afternoons. This home has everything you could wish for and more!!

Extremly clean and very well decorated. Very comfortable and roomy for the 8 people we had.

  • 5 of 5

The kitchen was equipped with everything we could need. Thought we would miss having a pool but the kayaks made up for that for the kids. There is nothing more peaceful then enjoying coffee on the balcony and watching all the boats come and go to the channel. Great scalloping.

Second Wonderful Weeklong Visit Here!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of tight knit family friends traveled to Homosassa this past week and again enjoyed Kathy's well equipped and beautiful home, situated directly on the Homosassa River. We all enjoyed every aspect of the home, from the comfortable furnishings to the well equipped kitchen. All of the bedrooms provide comfortable beds and the bathrooms are spacious and well designed. What a treat to be able to bring our boats and leave the house in the early morning for a fun day of scalloping and then end the day with a quick boat trip to the springs to enjoy the refreshing 72 degree, crystal-clear water. You will not be disappointed with your stay here. Thank you, again, Kathy, for welcoming us back... we hope to book soon for our visit in 2018!
