About the property

Two bedrooms home on canal with access to Gulf.

The cottage is located on the canal leading to the Gulf of Mexico and great fishing.

The house is comfortable and should provide all you need for your stay. Wood deck all around provides star gazing and cool breezes.

About Ramona

I am originally from Florida and grew up on the salt water. I recently found an old 8mm movie of me rowing a dinghy when I was 3 years old, although it was tied to the shore of the Anclote River. I lived in this house in Horseshoe Beach for 18 years; I now live in my childhood home on the river.

Ramona purchased this house in 1996

Why Ramona chose Florida North Central Gulf Coast

The house is located on a canal with easy access to the Gulf of Mexico and some of the best fishing in Florida. Having lived here for 18 years, the home is designed and equipped to be lived in - not simply a place to stay.

What makes this house unique

Horseshoe Beach is one of the few remaining towns along the Gulf Coast that is still quaint, quiet, and laid back. The fishing, both inshore and offshore is great. Dixie County has approximately 40 miles of coastline with only 1 mile in private ownership; the rest is sawgrass and salt marshes.

Great place to relax and scallop

  • 5 of 5

Horseshoe beach is truly a hidden gem. This was our first trip here and we will definitely be back one day. The house was clean and well equipped. We have absolutely no complaints about our stay.

The cottage had everything we needed. Enjoyed reading its history.

  • 5 of 5

Sleepy little fishing town until the marina /Jakes Pub winds up on Saturday night... fun to sit on the wrap around deck and watch the golf carts full of teens come and go. We got 1/2 our scallop limit (more than I cared to clean). Beauriful sunsets, walked to the restaurant down the street. Great breeze and hangout by the dock. We will be back. Very relaxing. Ramona is wonderful.
