Overview

About the property

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.

Perfect relaxation spot

  • 5 of 5

Great house, plenty of room , very secluded. Love the tiki bar it felt as if we were going out to a lounge when we were there. The kids had a great time with the kayaks and the fishing area. Can't beat the fire pit for Smores with the kids

In need of updating

  • 2 of 5

Furniture is tired. There is a futon in the living room that is too hard to sit comfortably and certainly cannot be slept on. A small bedroom has 2 sets of bunkbeds and a childs car bed, with barely room to move around in. Shower head in the second bathroom is too low. The king bed needs a new mattress. The queen bed is comfortable and the ensuite is nice. Wifi is good connection. No dishwasher probably as the well is not fast recovery. Fridge is missing one shelf making storage a problem. Owner advised us thermostat was stuck at 75* and a new one ordered which never arrived during the week we were there. There is a lack of bowls, cereal bowls, and plates.

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.
