Just what we were looking for!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate to rent for the entire month and had a great time.

It was in the perfect location and our boat fit perfectly on the dock.

It was clean and well furnished and the Owner was always just a phone call away.

We hope to return every year.

What a perfect vacation home. Me, my sisters and our spouses had a weekend reunion, and the house was just perfect for the six of us. The owner was very polite and helpful when reserving the property. The home is clean, well-furnished and had plenty of space. We plan on making this an annual event and we will definitely stay here again.

Very Clean home in a superb location!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great vacation home. I have rented a home every year for the past 10 years in Homosassa and this was the best by far. Very clean and a comfortable place to stay. I loved the location, the home canal opens up right at the end of the looong slow zone on the river so its a quick trip right to the ocean and you don't have to idle down the river. Great home for a large family.

Homosassa Vacation

  • 4 of 5

We live in St.Petersburg and were looking for a fun but close get away this summer. The home was spotless and was close to everything we needed. We rented a pontoon boat for a few days as well as a small john boat, which were right down the street. We were able to dock the boat right at the house. The yard was big enough to hold our 4 kayaks, our kids loved playing pool and it was an added bonus that the home was in a gated area. We will be back next year.

We had an amazing time. We definately will come back again. Thank you so much for letting us stay in this brautiful home! My only only requests that were not available here was a ice machin and doors to seperate the downstairs bedroom from all the activity/game room. You can just boat around the corner and get ice at Shelly's fish house but it is where most boats on the water get theirs so it ran out for 2.5 days. But overall the place was clean, spacious, and had most everything we needed. Oh and 2 garbage cans would be handy for our outside trash...1 just wasn't enought. One more thought...having a check out list of what the renters need to do before checking out would be handy :-)

Thank you so much for letting us stay here we will definately be back!
