Overview

About the property

4 bedroom, 3 bathroom home on the River

You can't miss this spectacular waterfront masterpiece! This 4,000 square foot home is located on a peninsula at the confluence of Price's Creek and the Homosassa River. The property has over 250' of seawall and a side canal with a new 50' boat dock and 5,000-lb. boat lift. The home is a fully-remodeled design showpiece with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the water. The open floor plan includes a top-of-the-line kitchen with fabulous water views. You can choose to relax on the lovely, large covered deck, and watching manatees and dolphins swim right in front of the house. Or you can take advantage of the many outdoor adventures available in the Nature Coast of Florida: airboating, kayaking, swimming with manatees, snorkeling in the springs, fishing year-round and scalloping in the summer. Bring your boat(s) and fishing poles! Homosassa is located 45 minutes from Tampa and 90 minutes from Orlando. There are fun waterfront restaurants that cater to boaters as well as grocery stores nearby. And if you love golf, see our newest VRBO listing 889416!

About Kathy Koslow and Peter VanDell

We are Kathy Koslow and Peter VanDell. We live in Weston, CT and have been exploring various parts of Florida that we could eventually call home. When we visited Homosassa in the Winter of 2014 we instantly fell in love with the Nature Coast, the village of Homosassa, and the people that live here. We were fortunate enough buy a little piece of paradise and intend on keeping up the tradition of sharing this wonderful home with folks who want to experience old Florida.

Kathy Koslow and Peter VanDell purchased this house in 2014

Why Kathy Koslow and Peter VanDell chose Homosassa

The moment we walked into this house, we fell in love with its location and stunning views. Our house is wonderful for quiet weekends as well as large family scalloping trips and reunion celebrations. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

What makes this house unique

The house's location is spectacular. It sits at the confluence of Price's Creek and the Homosassa River. The land across Price's Creek is a nature preserve with no buildings, so the views from the house are of stunning old Florida nature. Manatees, fish, birds, dolphin play right off the house's seawall. We spend hours sitting on the deck, drinking coffee/wine, and watching the boats go by. The house is a luxurious, peaceful escape.

Gorgeous home! Great location!

  • 5 of 5

This home is immaculately clean, beautifully decorated, stocked with everything you could need, and in a fabulous location that is within a quick 5-10 minute drive to several cute restaurants/bars plus easy access via boat to the gulf. The pictures really don't convey the spaciousness of this home! Our group of nine women enjoyed coffee, mimosas, wine, and great conversations on the breezy porch. The water views and sunsets were incredible! We were delighted to see several otters playing along the sea wall, along with manatees and dolphins casually swimming throughout the day. The kitchen was large enough for all of us to prepare meals together, and we loved being able to share meals and play games at the oversized table. We recommend The Freezer for shrimp and fish spread (get there early or you will be in long line to order) and The Shed for outdoor, live music and a cold drink. If you're looking to bring home a unique treasure from your vacation, check out Pepper Creek Pottery on W. Yulee Drive. There are a few marinas nearby if you need to store your boat for a longer stay or want to rent a pontoon boat for the day. We chose Riverhaven for its proximity to the house, and rented a pontoon boat for the afternoon for an affordable $140. If you cruise inland you'll dead end into an area of clear, shallow water where people anchor up, crank the music, and float around. There are a few bars along the water if you want to tie up and hop around, just don't get too close to the furry bandits on Monkey Island. We thank you again for sharing your amazing home with us - the "Scarfone Wine Goddesses" give this property 5+ stars!

Reunion for our 40th Anniversary of our Friendship

  • 5 of 5

The view is absolutely beautiful, the location is perfect, the home is gorgeous. What a wonderful weekend we three old gals spent on Dolphin Court celebrating our 40th year of being "besties!" Can't think of a thing that was a problem. Many thanks to Kathy for being the point of contact.

family spring break vacation

  • 5 of 5

We agree that this vacation rental is an ultimate luxury waterfront home. The photos of the home do not convey what a nice property this home is. Our group of 7 staying for a week found plenty of comfortable spots throughout this home, but the most enjoyable time was had spending time relaxing on the porch visiting, and regularly being surprised by the wildlife passing by within close proximity to the house. Manatee, dolphins, fish, birds all came by as we relaxed on the porch. The kayaks were great to have available, as we were able to get an even closer look. Homosassa is a great place for relaxing, the people are nice and friendly and many other activities are not far away.

WOW!! What a perfect combo of first class, yet ultra comfortable!!

  • 5 of 5

My family would recommend this beautiful waterfront home to anyone looking for a special retreat home in the Homosassa area. The house is right on the water and has the most awesome view both from the lower and upper deck...especially at sunset, as it faces West. There is not one comfort of home that you will miss while staying there, in fact we all said it was exponentially higher-end then our own homes...the kitchen is unbelievable!! The upper deck is huge and lined with big comfortable chairs and sofas...perfect for having your coffee in the morning and looking out over the water. Kayaks, grills, crab traps, private pier, fishing 10 steps from the back door,...too many things for you and the kids to do in one weekend! Loved it!!

More than expected!

  • 5 of 5

Very deserving of a full 5 stars. We took our teen daughter for her birthday. The house itself is immaculate and very high-end feeling in every detail. We rented a pontoon boat near by and it was very easy to access the house by dock. It was also nice that Publix (grocery store for non-Floridian's) was close by. The two kayaks were also nice surprises! Thanks, we will be back.
