Description

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Homosassa - Vacation Rental

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.

Hurricane Matthew Escape

  • 5 of 5

My wife, a Senior Friend and I all escaped from St. Augustine, to this lovely retreat to avoid the deadly forecast of Hurricane Matthew which was forecast to strike St. Augustine or just offshore as a cat 3 or cat 4 hurricane. Our stay with our pets was fantastic. The owners bent over backwards to see to our every wish, and we even decided last minute to stay 2 more days which was no problem. We were well relaxed and when we returned home we had minimal damage, but our friend lost her house due to flooding. Homosassa was a safe haven and was comfortable for us and our PETS! Will definitely keep this owner and place in mind and plan to return sometime.!

Clean, Quaint, and Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stayed we rented for a week and it was perfect. It had something for everyone in our family. From kids movies to puzzles to bird games. It had everything we needed and was a great location for scalloping. The boat dock was user friendly and neighbors were very nice. We would stay again next year for another family vacation.

Comfortable, clean house in quiet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed this home during our scalloping trip. It was clean and situated in a quiet neighborhood. There is plenty of parking area for a boat trailer, should you bring one. We rented a boat at one of the local marinas which was only a short 10 min drive away. I enjoyed sitting on the screened porch in the evenings listening to the rain. The kitchen had all the utensils, pots, pans, etc we needed. The grill was in great condition. They also had plenty of linens, blankets and pillows. The owners are very pleasant to work with. Great place to stay for trips to the Homosassa area!
