About Donald M. Calhoun and Kate Calhoun
After coming to the Homosassa since I was young and after sitting at one of the local restaurants on the River we just decided we had to have a home here. It had to be on the river and not a canal. We searched until we found it. It has been a pure pleasure to us over the last few years and we hope it is to you also. My family grew up in Pinellas County, and it is sure nice to enjoy the lack of congestion in Citrus.
Donald M. Calhoun and Kate Calhoun purchased this House in 2008
Why Donald M. Calhoun and Kate Calhoun chose Homosassa
This property was what we were looking for. It had to be right on the river,and we found it after many months of looking for just the right place.
What makes this House unique
When we opened the door and saw the river, that was it! When we first came to the house after the closing, I walked out on the dock and a dolphin came right up to me and as much as said, welcome home. The woods next door are home to many owls that call to each other at night. You can hear the manatees splashing around in the water in the evening. Too cute!
We loved it and sooo much fun!
Beautiful and comfortable house where we enjoyed having the boat docked and ready for catching scrumptious scallops and watching playful porpoises in the bay. An easy paddle to the spring where we saw mama and calf manatees swimming right under us! Encredible and memorable week on the Homossasa river!
Our family Loves this Beautiful home
Home is everything we could ask for as well as the owners their great people an we cant thank them enough for sharing their beautiful home with us, See you all next year
Great location, beautiful view, wonderful experience
The house is lovely. The location could not be better because grocery stores, Publix and Winn-Dixie, Dollar Tree, Dollar General, fast food, pizza (we liked Michael Anthony's) and sit-down restaurants are within a couple miles. My husband liked the bait shop next to the Walgreen plaza and Homosassa Marina just north on 98. The soft ice cream/frozen yogurt at Race Track is super. We drove out to Peck's Old Port Cover 3 times for dinner. Toward the end of our stay we discovered the Sugarmill Restaurant south on 98, a favorite. Dan's Clam Stand on Grover Cleveland was a frequent supper place. The large number of manatees around the dock and seawall attracted professional "Swim with the Manatees" folks, tourists, and kayakers. The Homosassa Springs are just around the corner. Be aware most of the river is a no-wake zone. My husband would say the fishing was not great. He did hire a guide one day which turned out to be chilly and very windy, but netted husband and my brother their limit of sea trout in the Gulf. I should probably mention there are no outlets in either bathroom so using a hairdryer, curling iron, etc. would require an extension cord. Bedroom #2 is lovely but lacks a dresser although it does have night stands with drawers. We had no issues that required contacting the owners.
Great property in a fabulous location
We had a great Christmas stay in this lovely house. The house is light, bright and open with lots of windows that open to a beautiful view of the river. We loved the porch and the dock was great for fishing and seeing the wildlife. We saw manatee, crab, fish, a bunch of birds and even a dolphin on Christmas morning. Thanks for a great stay!
I am from Florida and have been to Homosassa many times. This is by far the most beautifully decorated rental I have ever stayed at! I need the name of their decorator. We rented a pontoon boat and saw tons of manatees and lots of fish. We even saw manatees right off of the dock. We grilled out every night and sat on the screened porch. There are no neighbors on the right, so that was nice. Nicely appointed with everything we needed. Publix and marina only minutes away. We will be back!! Hopefully for scalloping season!
The River House was wonderful. The house is beautiful and well appointed. The river and property are magnificent. We enjoyed seeing manatee's, bald eagles, river otters, and dolphin right at the back porch. At the dock we could crab and the fishing was fun. What a great stay!
Thank you Kate and Don,
Marsha and Chuck
Homosassa Spring State Park is wonderfull and just around the corner by car, or up the river by boat or kayak,canoe
