Description

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Old Homosassa - Saltwater Springs Retreat

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 10 Sleeps

Unique and enchanting this refreshing retreat is located on a salt water lagoon just off the Mason Creek inlet to the Gulf of Mexico. The 1840 square foot 2002 Jacobsen Modular Home is nestled among native Cypress, Palm, Oak and Cedar trees on nearly 1 acre of land. This property is in an area of secluded homes (only three other homes are on this canal) but is only a few minutes away from the eating, shopping and sight seeing venues of Homosassa. In the backyard you’ll find an incredible screened-in tiki hut awaiting your family get-togethers. At night swap ghost stories (or tales of the big one that got away) around the campfire ring; in the morning watch the mullet jump and the dolphin and manatees play. On the opposite bank of the lagoon is a preservation area which begins the Chassahowitzka National Wildlife Refuge. Unbelievable exploration opportunities abound as the inlet is directly connected to the various Homosassa Springs waterways including the upriver springs, the Gulf of Mexico, the Crystal Reefs/Island, and the nationally recognized canoe and kayaking trails. As rustic and naturally beautiful as this area is you will not suffer for lack of modern conveniences inside the home. All modern appliances and cable TV, WiFi internet access, vaulted ceilings, fresh and invigorating Homosassa Springs water system and a romantic and cozy fireplace are there to make your stay comfortable and memorable.

River Safaris and other Nature tours are available in town, or bring

your own boat and make an adventure of your own, if you dare.

Great place and very helpful owner

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with this rental. We had to find a location for 10 people in a very short period of time. The owners were helpful and responsive and allowed us to rent the home even though they were in the process of recovering the property from a recent hurricane. We loved the tiki hut and spent some time enjoying it. Several people took the kayaks out on the canal. The house was in good shape and served our needs well. Even though we weren't there to fish or boat, this would be a great location for a fishing vacation.

Great home away from home!!

  • 5 of 5

We had so much fun staying at this back woods mason Creek house. We had three boats that we docked at the house and it worked out perfect. We were able to get some scalloping in and also some good Homosassa spring hangout. The gazebo is where we did a lot of our hanging out and it was perfect. We would love to make it back one day!

Great value...Would only change a few small things

  • 4 of 5

My family and a two other families, 6 adults and 5 kids, stay for two nights for a scalloping trip. The best part about the house was it's proximity to the boat rental place we used. The house in located on a canal; however, it was just easier for us to leave the boat at the rental location overnight (the boat rental place was very accommodating).

Highlights:

--Rental agent/owner was very responsive (email, never had to call)

--The tiki hut/bar out back was a highlight for the adults

--The charcoal grill was great

--Extra toiletries in both bathrooms

--Deep Freezer

--Extra lines and towels available

--Kid height table in the kitchen (very family friendly)

--Kayak and canoe available for use in canal

Here is a list of small items I would have liked to seen improved:

--Didn't realize it was a double-wide trailer

--Backdoor didn't stay closed well without using the deadbolt

--Fishy smell in the fridge and freezer

--Remove the board around the perimeter of the deck right at the top of the stairs! Each member of our group tripped over this multiple times (my daughter tripped and fell down the steps)

--Landscaping better maintained, the grass around the fire pit could have been better trimmed

--Sink disposal didn't work

Perfect Homosassa Location

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for us! The owners are very nice and the house is clean with lots of charm. We really enjoyed the location for boating and the tiki bar was the perfect hangout for evenings. Hope to come back next year!

Thanks again!
