About Dani Scott

Family of 4 - Currently live in Brooksville, FL. Love to be on the water in Homosassa.

Scallop season is wonderful and we have so much fun with our Family and Friends in Homosassa at The Fish House.

Dani Scott purchased this house in 2011

Why Dani Scott chose Homosassa

Our family has lived in Homosassa for years. We traveled up here every summer as kids.

And wanted to be on the water. So we looked around Homosassa and moved here in 2011.

Leaving the city was the best move we made! CAPTAIN QUARTERS AVAILABLE - SLEEPS AN EXTRA 4 PEOPLE.

What makes this house unique

The Homosassa Fish House is a comfortable fun house. Friends and Family gather here and go fishing and scalloping all year. Everyone loves to come to the Homosassa house.

The house sleeps a lot and is so quiet and relaxing. Waking up and drinking your coffee on

the front porch over looking the Bay is wonderful. Wanna get away??? Come to Homosassa. A small quaint town with many unique things to offer. **CAPTAINS QUARTER AVAILABLE - SLEEPS 4 EXTRA***

Quiet joy

  • 5 of 5

We loved it. 4 months of looking out on beautiful nature; manatees, dolphins, mullets, cardinals and a beautiful pair of hawks we named “Harry and Sally”. Perfect kitchen and comfort all around. Thank you. We are returning next year.

This place has everything! Private boat ramp, boat lift, plus two boat docks with a fish cleaning station and an ICE MACHINE. Very spacious. Couldn't ask for more.

Perfect property for a week on the River - great for a larger family.

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough about this property. We had a large group split among three houses and the Fish House became the place to cook dinners and hang out. The house was fully stocked, the large property was perfect for the kids to run around and the location provided easy access to the scallop grounds and springs. The owners were super to work with - extremely responsive and just really, really nice folks. We rented both the upper house and the downstairs "Captain's Quarters" and had plenty of room. The house has a great layout and super comfortable beds. Would highly recommend this property and hope to return again next year!

The Fish House is a beautiful, comfortable, gorgeous property right on Homosassa River

  • 5 of 5

Eight adults shared the Fish House for a visit in late December. We found the house to be extra clean, very bright and updated and the kitchen was stocked with really nice top quality items. The towels and linens were very nice. The wifi was good and strong and the cable TV was nice to have after a full day of fishing or swimming with manatees. The master bed was one of those memory foam things and one of the most comfortable I've ever slept on. The smaller beds and futons were less comfortable but still perfectly fine. The house is situated right on the Homosassa river and the photos don't do it justice! We spent hours sitting on the back screen porch just gazing at the river. The loaner kayaks that come with the house are good quality well cared for kayaks, and it isn't too far to paddle to get to Monkey Island. The house is a great location for a fishing trip. My husband and his buddies caught 80 fish in 5 hours. We all went on a private manatee swim with Captain Don of Air Tank Supply and saw at least 16 manatees including 4 babies. According to Capt. Don, you are only allowed to touch manatees on the Homosassa and not on the Crystal Rivers. A shame since many of the manatees will swim up to you to get a free massage. We also visited an Alpaca farm, the Homosassa State Wildlife park and the Weekie Wachee Mermaid park. To save on expenses we cooked most of our meals and it was a pleasure to use the kitchen which had everything you could want such as a large cutting board, big heavy pots for pasta, casserole dishes, good quality sharp knives and updated good quality appliances. The bathrooms are also way nicer than many typical Florida rentals. The house has a private boat ramp which made launching kayaks very easy. The one restaurant we visited was the "Freezer" which was so close we could have walked home, good to know since they sell $2 draft beers! The Freezer seafood was delicious and such a bargain! My only complaint was that the kitchen table sits 6 comfortably, and to squeeze all eight of us around it left no elbow room, but that is my only complaint.
