About Tammy

I am originally from the St. Petersburg/Gulfport area. I have been coming to Homosassa for years. My parents built a house here many years ago. I bought this lot in 2004, finally building this home in 2007 just two blocks from my parents. I have been here full time since 2007 and just love it! My mother has since past away, but she lives on everyday in that she brought me to this place and made it all happen.

Tammy purchased this house in 2007

Why Tammy chose Old Homosassa

It's like entering another world when you pull into the driveway after driving in 5 miles of scenic road with no traffic lights. You don't hear any sirens or screeching tires. Sometimes when the wind is blowing just right, you can hear the drowning sound of the diesel engine from the shrimp boats coming back into the river from working all night catching your next lunch at the Freezer! On a clear night and because there are no city or street lights, you can see a bazillion stars at night.

What makes this house unique

I could go on and on but I think you get the picture. Thank you for reading!

Great home with everything you need.

  • 5 of 5

We come to Homosassa every year to scallop and this house was perfect. It has everything you need and is in a very peaceful location. The canals out to the river can be a little tricky but once we figured it out it was fine. The owner is easy to get ahold of as well. We will definitely be back.

Goodbye stress, hello peace & quiet

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I needed to get away from the "rat race" for a few days and boy did we find it!

Everything about this rental was perfect. Very, very clean and well equipt, including ice cold central air conditioning, a great kitchen and two grills.

We were able to tie our boat up to the dock which is just feet off the beautifully landscaped patio. A short boat ride had us on the Homasassa River or in Homasassa Bay. We plan on bringing the entire family on our next stay. For the price of a decent hotel room, we had a completely updated and beautifully decorated home with all the trimmings.

Our stay was first class all the way! Great job Tammy, thanks for everything. Looking forward to our next trip.

Excellent accomodations for friends and family!

  • 5 of 5

Tammy's property was appointed thoroughly both in décor and functionality. We lacked for nothing at the house. It was clean (very important!) and suited all of our needs! The back yard/ patio area was awesome!

Very nice house, well-kept and relaxing location

  • 5 of 5

The house was extremely nice and had everything we could ask for. The back patio area was a relaxing place to sit and enjoy time together as the guys fished. We also made use of the bikes and canoe that are available. The neighborhood is very nice for bike rides. We enjoyed our stay and Tammy was great to answer questions and offer help with anything we might need. Would definitely recommend this property for someone wanting to get away and relax or enjoy the Homosassa and Crystal River area.
