Overview

About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

It is 7 miles to the gulf and three (3) boat ramps are just 2 minutes away. All the Old Homosassa 'hot spots' are right around the corner. You can boat, walk, ride the furnished bikes or take your golf cart to them. (golf cart and boat not furnished) There is plenty of parking on the property for your vehicles and trailers. It is easy to enter and exit with the circular drive. The dock you would be using is right across the street on the side road. It can be used for loading and unloading boat and mooring your boat. It cannot be used for fishing, sunning or hanging out.

Up close to nature is what you will get while staying in our 11 year old home. Nestled among the oak, cedar and palm trees there is an abundance of animals and birds to entertain you. You even have a waterview of the canal where manatees and dolphins also entertain on occasion. The screened lanai is the perfect spot for your morning coffee, afternoon cocktail or a siesta any time. If your are a motorcycle rider, you will enjoy all the biker destination spots in the area. There is also an enclosed storage room to keep your bikes safe and secure!

Home is bright, clean and well equipped. Sectional in living room has 2 recliners where you can relax while watching the 50' HD television. Bedrooms have a televisions also. There is an outside fire pit for those cool evenings in the winter. Bring your computer so that you can stay in touch with everyone at home. Connect wirelessly or by ethernet.

See the manatees, dolphins etc or just enjoy the fishing, sailing and golf courses, in this tranquil area of Florida, which is only a one hour drive north of Tampa.

The Nature Coast of Florida deserves its name, with over ninety-eight thousand acres set aside as federal, state or county parks and preservation areas. It is a delight to all nature lovers, with extensive boating, fishing and ten golf courses, within easy driving distance. Old Homosassa is a preservation area with restricted development and still has a lot of the charm.

The local supermarkets are only five minutes away,

About The Owner

We live in Clearwater Florida and originally started coming to Homosassa because friends had a vacation home here. While visiting we started appreciating what old Florida was all about. We bought this property to park our motorhome on and then built a house on it. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we have.

The Owner purchased this house in 2005

Why The Owner chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

We chose to continue coming to this area because it takes us 80 minutes to get from our primary residence to our front door in Homosassa. Once you get here it feels like you are in a whole different world. This is old Florida and nature at its finest!!!

What makes this house unique

This home is immaculate, peaceful, comfortable and close to everything. Two of the boat ramps that are right around the corner launch you directly into the river. After that it is only 20 minutes to the gulf. The other ramp launches you into Mason Creek.

Great house, wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

We had a week-long family vacation with folks spread across three properties in this neighborhood. The house was fully stocked and perfect for our needs. Beautiful porches, a view down the canal, and close to all that Old Homosassa has to offer. I would highly recommend this property to others.

Very comfortable and relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

Loved the local pictures on the wall. Master bedroom was very spacious and comfortable. Living room area was great to sit and relax together without having to be on opposite sides of the room. The screened in porch was great keeping out mosquitoes. Definitely wanting to come back.

Well maintained, clean. Good location. Huge yard

  • 5 of 5

We stayed this past Memorial Day Weekend. 4 adults and our 2 kids. The house was very clean and well taken care of. It had everything you would expect a rental to have as far as being well stocked for cooking our food, toiletries, towels etc. The dock owner/caretaker Keith was very very friendly, and made us feel right at home and welcome in the neighborhood. We had a fantastic weekend and would stay again, as well as recommend to others

Great property in beautiful neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

We really loved the place. Nice quiet neighborhood, only a few minutes to what Homosassa has to offer. The porch was really handy when we had a family cook out at the beach that was rained out. We moved to the house and finished the day on the porch. We had an issue with the internet not connecting so I called the property owner and she gave us the solution on our first call. Nice big master suite and living room with a big wrap around couch. I could live there easily. We're really happy we picked this spot for the week. Thank you for letting us stay there. It'll be our first choice when we need another short term rental.
