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 Riverhaven Village

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.

The place is a palace!

  • 5 of 5

Everything top notch, even over the top. Great views, luxurious acommodations, we had a great time. Only criticism, or suggestion really, would be a fish cleaning station and maybe a small commercial ice making machine.

Amazing!!!! Everything I thought and more. Clean, fully equipped and the river view was beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful! It basically has two living quarters, the main one up and a smaller one down. An upper deck balcony that will seat 8-9 comfortably. The dining table that seats 12 was one of my favorite things. The entire family sitting at one big table. Everyone thought the beds were so comfortable. The kitchen is equipped with everything you would need for gourmet cooking, pot and pan wise. The refrigerator was 7 feet tall, double door. By far the biggest refrigerator I have ever seen!!! And we filled it with groceries. For anyone wanting to go with a group, I recommend this place!!!

Best VRBO experience ever!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures don't do this place justice, it's absolutely beautiful inside and out! We rented this for my fathers 70th B-day. It is plenty large enough for 3 families to fit comfortably. Beds all very comfy, nice open floor plan, well appointed kitchen, and gorgeous waterfront views . The owners were so accommodating even allowing us to check out a little late on Easter Sunday. I highly recommend this lovely home!!!
