About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 1-4)

This cozy cottage lets you catch fish right from your own doorstep! It is a small cottage with a nice size bedroom with a king size bed. The living room has a futon that opens up to a full size bed. A kitchenette with a full size refrigerator and stove and microwave. The living room has a beautiful waterfront view.

You can catch your own bait: pinfish, crabs or mullet. You will see dolphins and manatees from your living room. There's a screened-in bar area with cable TV and a comfortable chair to nod off in. You are minutes by boat or car to the Homosassa Wild Life Park. We can even make arrangements for your pick-up and drop-off at the Tampa airport.

There are many fine restaurants in the Homosassa and Crystal River area. Arrangements can also be made for drop off and pick up to the restaurants for your enjoyment of quaint Florida Southern cooking.

If you would like an IMMACULATE quiet place for great fishing or just a place to nod your head give us a call. I believe this could be the place for you at an affordable rate. I would be happy to bring you over to the 'springs' to see more manatees than you can count. If you are more adventurous you can jump in the crystal clear water and swim with the manatees.

You are welcome to bring your own boat and dock at your doorstep. If you are interested in a fishing guide I could arrange to have a guide pick you up at your doorstep. The Florida record tarpon was caught just a mile or so from the cottage.

Give us a call 352 228 3828 at times we have some great specials or send email to jmanfredi@tampabay.rr.com

Great place on the canal near the river.

  • 5 of 5

Nice , neat, clean. Nothing fancy but certainly very good for what we wanted. More character than a hotel room. This cottage had a dock that I was able to keep my boat. The owners were next door. They were very nice and helpful.

Everything about our accommodations met our needs as promised from barbecuing on the grill, cooking fresh shrimp suggested by John, canoeing and which restaurants were his favorites to a good nights sleep. Started each morning on the front porch area on the water with a great view, a small alligator and birds singing. Hopefully I can get my relatives and friends to join me there next year. What a relaxing time. The seafood was superb at The Freezer and Pecks. The Wildlife State Park and matinees were a wonder.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for the July 4th week and it was a very neat, clean place, just like the owner said. We brought our own boat and spent days on the Gulf scalloping, fishing, etc.or we would go to the springs and let the kids swim and watch the manatees. I would recommend this vacation rental to anyone staying in the area. No suprises here. Highly recommended.

Highly Recommend

  • 5 of 5

My husband, myself and our dog stayed at this property for 6 nights. The owner was not only very responsive to phone calls and e-mails, he maintains a great property. The cottage was very clean and well stocked with the essentials. Our boat was right out the back door, which has a wonderful dock. We didn't even need to put out bumpers! We enjoyed sitting on the back patio, legs dangling in the water, cleaning scallops. This was our third vacation this summer and by far the most relaxing. It is a few minutes to the springs and the run out the river to the gulf is beautiful. We would highly recommend this property and the owner. We WILL be back before scallop season closes:)
