Why David chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

The views, the location, the privacy. We are at the end of the road, where the only houses that can be seen from the decks are across the river.

What makes this house unique

Private, but in the middle of everything.

Comfort and Beauty on Florida's Nature Coast

  • 5 of 5

We have returned four times to this lovely spot on the Homosassa River. It is the perfect location to relax after a day of exploration on the water or on the links of nearby golf courses. Ideal for all ages!

Life on the River

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to watch life unfold on the river. Birds, manatees, fish, otter, Shrimp boats, fishermen, nature lovers. This house is extremely well stocked with a great split floor plan. The owners is most responsive to all our needs. We felt so pampered.

Again, another fantastic vacation in Florida! Everything we could want/need and more in this rental. The BEST spot on the river, the view and sunsets are so special each and every night! Great for people watching on their kayaks and boats. Saw a few dolphins and got 'bumped' by a couple manatees on our kayaking trips, must have startled them awake?! Thank you David for offering your home to us, truly love going there each year.

CEDAR SHACK 02.01.15 to 02.21.15

  • 5 of 5

Having recently retired, I was looking for a location that was scenic, somewhat close to bike trails, and did not have throngs of people. We could not have been happier with Cedar Shack and the interaction with the owner, David. My wife and I found Cedar Shack tranquil, private, spacious, with a variety entertaining birds, and spectacular sunsets.

We hope to return in the future.
