Great place! Great location

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this same place for a couple years now and have always enjoyed our stay. Our kids love the pool and being able to take the kayaks out on the nice calm water. Look forward to staying here again

Perfect House for Vacation, Great Location for Boating

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a week-long family vacation. This property was perfect. We were able to get our 24-foot boat to the dock without problem. The screened in pool was a huge hit with kids and adults alike. The house has a great layout and was fully stocked. The house is very spacious and the open layout from the common areas to the screened in porches was perfect for large dinners. The location was perfect for boating to the springs or scalloping grounds. I would highly recommend this property.

Exactly what we were looking for & more!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Homosassa & we CANNOT wait to go back! The house is tucked on a quiet canal with great outdoor living space, heated pool, beautiful view & local wildlife including a mom & baby manatee that hung out in the canal for a day. Having the kayaks available was wonderful & we discovered a new love of kayaking. The house was clean, well stocked kitchen and great selection of DVD's. The only change that would make the house more amenable for a family of 4 w/ 2 teens is another full bath....but this would not stop us from booking this house again. An absolutely wonderful week! Go to Freezers (walking or biking distance) for the cheapest & tastiest crab legs, steamed shrimp & clam chowder. We rented a pontoon boat thru River Safaris and spent a morning at Homosassa Springs & explored the river to the Gulf entrance. We had a minor problem with cable upon arrival which was promptly addressed & corrected by the homeowners. If you are considering this home, you will not be disappointed. Many thanks Mel!

Love our winters in Homosassa. We have been staying at this addresd for the last two years. We enjoy the quiet and tranquility, the wild life paying their daily visits and the closeness to all the amenities, golf, fitness club and groceries. Mel and Jack are a pleasure to deal with.

Met expectations

  • 5 of 5

We did not use the Bikes, Kayaks, fishing poles, many DVDs or pool but really enjoyed the view out back.

House was clean and the garage was nice to have.

Neighbor was rebuilding their driveway during our stay, but that was not a problem.
