About the property

4 Bedroom, 4.5 Bathroom Fully Furnished Executive Pool Home

The ultimate vacation home in prestigious Sugarmill Woods. This immaculate, fully furnished executive pool home boasts 4 bedrooms 4.5 bathrooms, giving everyone their own private bed/bath ensuite to spread out into. Families and foodies will be inspired to entertain in the executive kitchen, breakfast nook and family room combination with granite countertops and island large enough to accommodate the whole family. Professional stainless steel appliances include a side by side refrigerator large enough to stock any food and beverage items one can imagine; smooth top stove, wall oven and microwave and dual sinks with one on the island allowing several people to work together to prepare meals and snacks in the hearth of the home; not to mention the whole house water purification system providing good and fresh tasting water for your drinking, cooking and washing needs. The family room boasts a 52” flat screen HDTV and DVD surround sound system with a stocked media library, cable TV, Wi-fi and plenty of seating for friends and family. Those who want more active entertainment can enjoy the pool table or swim in the 15’ x 36’ solar heated western facing swimming pool and spa under a fully screened lanai. Did we mention this house includes a gym with a treadmill and two weight stations! Need some quiet time? Enjoy the quiet of the living room with a great selection of books. Pool furniture and gas grill allows the family to spill out to the outdoors without leaving any of the indoor amenities.

For nature lovers, this property sits on a very private landscaped lot, which backs to a deep natural wooded ‘greenbelt’ preserve, with no neighbors in the back and north side of the house. Plenty of deer, turkey, turtles, the elusive fox squires and a variety of birds can be viewed in the quite early mornings and evenings from the screened lanai. Nature walks will call you to observe our wonderful flora and fauna with friendly neighbors waving and speaking along the way.

This beautiful home is centrally located two miles from the Suncoast Parkway and minutes from world-renowned Homosassa Springs, manatee capital of the world and Weeki Wachee, home of the world famous mermaid show. The Wildlife Park has a wonderful feeding show with the manatee and those who want more adventure can take a tour with a local dive shop to snorkel with the manatee in their natural habitat. What a wonderful once in a lifetime opportunity to explore the springs with the majestic manatee, up close and personal! The Gulf of Mexico, Homosassa River, Crystal River, fresh and salt water fishing, world class golf, beaches, excellent shopping and many restaurants are all close by to make your vacation special and memorable. An hour north of Tampa/Clearwater/St. Petersburg and two hours of Orlando/Disney World/Universal Studios, why pay triple the price for cramped and crowded hotel accommodations for less than a 2 hour drive when you can spread out in this amazing private pool home.

Beautiful Florida sunshine awaits you – all you need is your suitcase to enjoy the best of Florida’s ‘Nature Coast’!

About Anita Florido

I come from a large family and always wanted to have a place were we could all gather for some fun in the sun and down home relaxation. We traveled all over Florida for 10 years exploring and when we came across Homosassa and this house it was love at first sight. The relaxed environment and warm people made me want to call this home.

Why Anita Florido chose Sugarmill Woods

The thing I love most about this property is the space. With family gatherings a crucial part of our habits having the ability to spread out in the house and have a bathroom dedicated for every bedroom is great. In addition, having the 3 living spaces are great so that the adults can be in one space and the children can play in other, but close enough to keep everyone together.

What makes this house unique

The executive kitchen is great for big family gatherings because it allows all of us to gather and help with the cooking without stumbling over each other. It is a pure joy to entertain in this house.

Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5

Casa De Flores is a beautiful, comfortable home. The owner was very attentive and did everything possible to insure we enjoyed our stay. While at the house, we spent most of the time in the well equipped kitchen, family room, pool area. We play golf so were gone most days, playing golf or enjoying the other activities the area offers (boating, historical sites, race track, etc.). We have been going to Sugarmill Woods for 13 years and this definitely would be my first choice to stay another year. We especially enjoyed relaxing in the spa at the end of the day and having our supper on the patio (lunch and breakfast too sometimes). We were able to host a family reunion. The house is large enough to comfortably accommodate eight adults (2 brothers/sister and spouses and ourselves). We had a great time preparing meals together about half the time. The rest of the time we enjoyed eating out at one of the many local restaurants that range from casual to a little bit upscale. We also were lucky enough to experience the warmest February on record. It was a great vacation and I would love to come back.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful time at Casa De Flores, even though the Florida weather wasn't playing very nice. Everything is very clean. The kitchen is well-equipped, and the neighborhood is safe and comfortable. We fell in love with Sugarmill Woods. Can't say enough good things about a really lovely stay at this spacious "dream home."

The pictures don't do this property justice; it is amazing!

  • 5 of 5

I'm ready to book again for next year. Cleanest place I have ever stayed. Had everything we needed and more. There is not one negative thing I can say about this place; except we had to go home. Best vacation experience we ever had!! I would recommend this to anyone interested in vacationing in that area.

Amazing home!

  • 5 of 5

We rented Casa De Flores for our family vacation for a week, we had our children and grandchildren with us and I have to say we all absolutely loved this home! All of the rooms are very good sized and the furniture is beautiful! The home has all the amenities you could need. Anita was very nice to work with and very attentive. The only small issue we had was that the hot tub didn't heat up as well as it should, when we told Anita she immediately called the pool guy. He came out that evening and checked it out. There is quite a bit to do in the area so we kept very busy. Anita provides some information on things to do in the area and some restaurant suggestions. If we come back to stay in this area again we will definitely stay as Casa De Flores! We recommend this home to anyone looking to stay in this area.

We were looking for a place that was quiet yet not far from stores. Perfect for us.

  • 5 of 5

The house was immaculate, beds comfy, and kitchen very well stocked with necessities. Better than anything was our interaction with Anita. You will not find a VRBO manager so responsive and willing to help. THAT'S WHAT MAKES A VACATION MOST ENJOYABLE FOR US!

Thanks so much, Anita.

Spacious, lovely pool home in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home is so spacious you could get lost in it. There are actually 5 bedrooms but one has been converted into an exercise room. The billiard room is in addition to a family room and a living room. The art work appears to reflect Anita's travels and adds a nice touch to each room. I will only give a 5 star rating if a home has great beds, is very clean and the owner communicates well. This home is definitely 5 stars. We loved that it was close to great kayaking (which we did daily) restaurants close enough to be convenient, yet the property itself gave you a sense of being in the woods, especially while enjoying the pool and hot tub. Although the pool was too cool for our taste (stayed the first week in February), Anita made sure the hot tub was comfortably hot for us (102 degrees). I travel to Florida at least 4 times a year and this will definitely be on my list of return trips.
