Enjoy a drink on the decking, while watching the fish jump into the adjoining Otter Creek. Take advantage of the private heated pool, the double kayak, 2 bicycles and the quiet, relaxed seclusion,of this waterfront property. It is only five minutes direct boat access to the clear Homosassa River and twenty minutes to the Gulf of Mexico.

This was our third visit and was just as good as the first time.Everything perfect.Thanks for letting us share your home and who knows there may be a 4th time
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.
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.
We had a wonderfully relaxing time at the deep water retreat over the Christmas holiday. The fishing off the property turned out to be great - especially for catfish. The kayaks and bicycles were enjoyable. The large pool was really nice. We lounged on the porch and looked at the stars at night and the peaceful canal view in the day. Our favorite restaurant, The Freezer, was conveniently just around the corner. The house was comfortable, especially the master room's king bed. There was only one full bathroom, but an extra half bath in the garage relieved the waiting. We all agreed we would like to come back again.
We love coming up to Homosassa every summer to do some scalloping and spend time together just getting away from it all. The house was perfect for us! Plenty to do on a nice silent canal. PERFECT FOR KAYAKING! The pool was very much enjoyed by my kids as well as the large screened in porch! We will defiantly be staying here again!
This was a perfect place to relax, enjoy the natural beauty of Old Homosassa. The house was comfortable and we'll appointed. The Kitchen was well equiped. We enjoyed the lanai, deck and dock...and loved the pool! Having a garage was a definite plus. We truly felt 'at home' at Mel's place....we will come back! There is so much to do in and around the 'Nature Coast' that we could have stayed for several weeks and not gotten to see it all! Well worth the trip!!
