|Minimum Stay||3 nights|
Located on the Gulf side of Florida within the gorgeous Nature Coast. Secluded private home on the Withlacoochee river edge with its own dock and access to the gulf by boat/car. 3 bedrooms and 2 baths, large kitchen and dining room viewing the river out back. Inclosed lanai with hot tub. Fully furnished nautical theme with everything you need for a great stay. Miles of River front beauty and recreational opportunities, playground for fisherman and wetland home for numerous bird species and mammal considered rare in America.
With an age range of 9-70, I was nervous about everybody having a good time. It worked out great though. We were only a short drive from Dunnellon, where we were able to do a Christmas Eve canoe trip on the pristine Rainbow River. A short drive the opposite direction puts you at the gulf where you can see the same river that is behind the house (Withlacoochee) spill into gulf. There were plenty of good dining options nearby as we visited the monkey bar in Homosassa and a seaty little bar on the other side of Lake Rousseau called the Loft (best bar tacos I've ever had and the Busch beer was the same temperature they keep them back home). The Homosassa state park was perfect for my mom. She got to see the kids having a great time without having to do much walking, Lou the Hippo is a must see along with this being the only place nearby where you are guaranteed to see Manatee without any effort.
My brother spent most of his time fishing from the dock. It took him most of the week to figure out what baits to use and the effect of the tide on the fish bite even though we were on a river right by the dam the water fluctuates around 5 ladder rings from high to low tide.
I only have a couple of suggestions that would have benefited our vacation. Provide a second key or alternative entry as coordinating with groups going in different directions was difficult to decide who should take key as the second group for reasons beyond my understanding could not figure out the lockbox hanging on the door knob. Since the internal entrance to the hot tub is through the room with two beds where the kids were sleeping we had to walk around the garage to not disturb them. This was a very dark walk if you didn't have your cell, a light over by the trash would have been helpful. The dock was also pitch dark and could benefit from some minimal lighting.
These were minor inconveniences that didn't stop everybody from having a wonderful time. I definitely recommend staying here to anybody.
House has everything you need . Good location , clean .Two biggest towns are only 1/2 - 3/4 away . 4 gas stations , IGA , Sunoco only one fills propane tanks . Great bike trails around the area . Many good places to eat , pick one give it a try . Lot to see in the area.Thanks for sharing you house .
The pictures do not do the house justice. A very nice place. The river is large and quite fast flowing. The bike paths around this area are some the best and most plentiful we have ever seen. We enjoyed our month there very much. If you are tired of Florida's hyped up crowds, traffic, and prices, then this is the place for you.
Comfortable home with beautiful river to enjoy. Great area with many things to see and do near by. Parks, beaches and plenty of kayaking opportunities.
We had a wonderful trip to the Ingliss/Crystal River area. Despite weather that was a bit chilly, we were able to check out area beaches, hike, kayak, see the manatees, and of course eat a lot of good local food. This home was very comfortable, plenty of room for an extended family, great location, big bright kitchen, lanai and hot tub. I hope to return next February!
