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.

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.

Amazing View

  • 5 of 5

This home exceeded our expectations from the moment we came through the front door.

The view is absolutely beautiful with an entire wall of windows. We had two families and a few extra visitors with plenty of room to spread out during our stay. The kitchen has everything you'll need, we only ate out once the entire week. We enjoyed using the kayaks provided and even saw a manatee with her young feeding along the seawall. We were all sad to leave this lovely home and would definitely rent again!

Very large and very nice house on the water

  • 5 of 5

We stayed there a week during July 2016. The house is situated on the river and provides quick access to the Gulf. This very nice 2 story house provides incredible views of the river and of the local wildlife. Manatees, dolphins and numerous birds were seen on a daily basis. The house has it's own dock and you can be in the gulf in 15 minutes, having only one short idle zone to contend with. The house is very large and well kept. We had a wonderful time with no problems!

Everything First Class

  • 5 of 5

From the appliances, to the beautiful wood flooring to the new dock and on and on; this property is fantastic. The location is just off the River with a fantastic view and a canal and private dock that is protected from boat traffic. The dock had room for our 25 ft open fisherman and 21 ft pontoon boat so no worries in that regard. It shows that a lot of money was spent on renovating the property and that little or no expense has been spared in the outfitting and upkeep. Kathy's communication was excellent throughout the renting process and she made sure we had everything we needed for a great vacation. This is our second visit and we anticipate more.
