About Janice Adkins

We have recently purchased the property and overtime hope to make it even better.We have been coming to the river for over 20 years and finally bought our vacation home. We are a large family and understand what's needed to enjoy family vacations and have fun year round.

Janice Adkins purchased this house in 2013

Why Janice Adkins chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

We love this property and it's location to Rogers Park beaches, restaurants, nature, the Gulf of Mexico. We have many friends with homes here and love the community.

What makes this house unique

We love this house with the privacy of the canal yet 3 doors down from the wide open river. The 2 living areas and the large screened porch give us plenty of room. Included with the house are the 6 kayaks (several 2 man) and the canoe. No inconvenience or expense to have to rent off site. Grill and fish right in your back yard. Take your kayak to the nearby restaurant for lunch or dinner.

Thank you so much Pat and Janice for sharing your lovely home with us! My family and myself had such an amazing time. We especially loved having access to the kayaks and canoe! We were out on the river everyday. You had everything we needed. We saw manatees everyday and other wildlife! We appreciated having the board games and the great screened in porch. The home was very clean and organized which made everything that much better! We hope to return as soon as we can!

Thank you Janice & Pat for sharing your riverhouse!!! This was our second stay there and it was even better this time because we were able to enjoy it for a whole week!!! We were there for our annual family vacation (ages 83 to 18); everyone had a wonderful time. We shared a lot of laughter and made some great memories. (Have to mention that we had a blast playing Cards Against Humanity with our Mom...her reactions to some of the cards were priceless!!!!) Having the Gulf and the river right there is the best; came home with scallops and fish out of the Gulf and kayaked up the river with the Manatees!!!! What a bonus having the kayaks there; even got our 83 year old, Florida cracker Dad in a kayak for the first time!!! The house is great, very clean and had everything we needed. Thanks again to you both!!!

Kayak Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Pat and Janice for the most wonderful relaxing stay at your beautiful piece of paradise on the river! The house is perfect with everything I could imagine right there from linens to a fully equipped kitchen, several big TVs and internet access. My favorite was kayaking with the Manatees then coming back to watch the herons and woodpeckers in the trees on the big screened porch. It was also fun to explore the surrounding area including local restaurants like the one on Homosassa where we watched giant tarpons feeding and the Monkey bar in Crystal River where they have a small island with real monkeys! And good cold beer! I will be back again and again! Thanks for your hospitality and for sharing your home and kayaks!

My family had a wonderful weekend here. It had everything we needed. Plenty of linens and the kitchen is fully equipped. The kayaks were great for the family. Saw lots of manatees on our kayak excursion. The porch was my personal favorite. What a great place to sip your morning coffee overlooking the river. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home. It was really great. Look forward to doing this again!

Fantastic Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most amazing time celebrating the end of Summer at this lovely home! Thank you so much, Janice & Pat, for creating such a warm and welcoming home for us to enjoy. This place had everything we could possibly need for our stay, and more! We loved having enough kayaks for the whole gang to enjoy at once! We also had fun playing cornhole and board games on the one day that it rained during our stay. The house was very clean and organized, and the split plan worked great so that the kids could play in one room while the adults were talking in another. The backyard was awesome too! Loved the fire pit, the swing, and the big backporch! I'm checking dates now to book again for next Summer, hopefully for a little longer stay this time!! I can't wait to come back. Thank you so much!!

Where do I start!!! First off; thank you Janice and Pat for sharing your home with us!!! Everyone in our family loved it. The only bad thing was that we were only able to enjoy it for two days!!! The location is perfect; you have the best of both worlds....minutes from the gulf and right on the river!! We saw a total of 5 manatees....one so close you could of reached out and touched it!!! Spent part of the day on the Gulf and we became official Scallopers (which were delicious by the way!!!) The house is very spacious....plenty of room for all of us to gather and enjoy each others company. We had a lot of laughs and made some wonderful memories. What a bonus the kayaks are....we really enjoyed going up river....absolutely beautiful. We will definitely be coming back when we can stay longer. My Dad has already asked me several times if I have made another reservation yet...:) Thanks again Janice & Pat!!!!!
