Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Homosassa - On The River

3 bedroom, 2 bath home with dock and patio for enjoying the water. All up-dated

Designer up-dated, open and airy. Quality kitchen with granite and stainless. Lots of bedroom and living space indoors and out for your vacation enjoyment. Watch the boats go by as you sit by the beautiful Homosassa River. Close to everything for your convenience and pleasure. Great restaurants within 5 minutes. Rent a boat or kayak just around the corner in Old Homosassa. Fish off the dock and you just might catch a snook or mangrove snapper for diner. Bring your boat because there is plenty of space to dock it and head for the springs down the river or to the gulf about 20 minutes away. Enjoy!

About Donald M. Calhoun

After coming to the Homosassa since I was young and after sitting at one of the local restaurants on the River we just decided we had to have a home here. It had to be on the river and not a canal. We searched until we found it. It has been a pure pleasure to us over the last few years and we hope it is to you also. My family grew up in Pinellas County, and it is sure nice to enjoy the lack of congestion in Citrus.

Donald M. Calhoun purchased this house in 2008

Why Donald M. Calhoun chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

This property was what we were looking for. It had to be right on the river,and we found it after many months of looking for just the right place.

What makes this house unique

When we opened the door and saw the river, that was it! When we first came to the house after the closing, I walked out on the dock and a dolphin came right up to me and as much as said, welcome home. The woods next door are home to many owls that call to each other at night. You can hear the manatees splashing around in the water in the evening. Too cute!


Excellent! 4.7/5 -

Very nice home.

  • 4 of 5

the home was lovely a few things the shower curtain liners needed changing. Batteries in all remotes. Weather because of incoming hurricane Hermine was not the best therefore the dock and river was not used on 2nd day. I hope your home did not get damaged. I would have loved all three days to have been nice. As I said home was nice and well decorated. We go every year so I may come again.

We had a great time staying in this great house.It is in a perfect location right on the river. The house is well appointed and decorated well. Very close to the wonderful spring. You could easily kayak there.Good location in relation to highway also. Very close to The Freezer for great food.Home has three nice bedrooms. Plenty of dock space for several boats. Room to back trailer into yard. Very quiet neighborhood. We will definitely rent again

Fabulous family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 adults and 2 children had a most enjoyable time. The house has everything you need. Kitchen is very well equipped. There are plenty of bath towels and linens. The beds are very comfortable. Everything is very neat, tidy and exceptionally clean. The screened in porch is perfect for sitting out anytime with the most beautiful view of the river. Dock is very well maintained and there is a ladder to easily access the water.

We were able to launch our jon boat at McRaes and had a nice tie up right at the dock. Very convenient for nice, calm rides up and down the river. Kids brought their kayaks and could easily launch right from in front of the property.

We had a nice treat of seeing manatees and dolphins right in front of the dock.

Kate was very nice and always was pleasant to deal with any questions we had.

We enjoyed being in the river boating , kayaking and swimming.

We went to The Freezer one evening and had the most delicious shrimp.Highly suggest you get there early, it can become quite crowed.

Also took a trip to Ozello to Pecks Its a little bit of a drive but well worth it. Also we enjoyed a great Air Boat ride thru the River Safaris. Great Experience!

The only disappoint we had was how crowded the river was during the weekend, and of course we are sure it's because it's summer and school is out! But the boaters for the most part do respect the privacy of the river home and are anchored far enough away.

We certainly hope to visit again some day. This home is highly recommended.

With a few tweaks, would be a five star vacation home.

  • 4 of 5

Property is well kept...beautiful views . Home is great..(bring dish towels). Privacy not so good on weekends due to boats anchoring on shore. A guest sat on patio chair and it gave away. Conveniently located to grocery store, and popular restaurants. Over all a great place to relax and enjoy Homosassa.

Very comfortable and clean home with an amazing location. Daily visits from the manatee. Home is located in a quiet neighborhood close to the Wildlife Park. Owners were very pleasant and easy to deal with. Would love to stay here again.

Beautiful setting to enjoy nature

  • 4 of 5

We spent the month of January 2016 at the home.

The property is on a quiet cul de sac and has a beautiful view of the river. When you walk in the door, your first view is a wall of windows and the river beyond. It is visually stunning.

We spent a good deal of our time outside. The property has fairly wide river views and was an almost constant parade of manatees. We also saw dolphins several times chasing schools of fish, as well as many birds and even bald eagles.

We swam, snorkeled and fished off the dock, the water is fairly shallow, clear and much warmer than the gulf this time of year. Just sitting a watching nature never got boring!

Nice eating area with gas grill outside and a wide dock area for lounging.

The main living area has a couch, chairs and TV that are ok.

The dining room furniture was fairly comfortable again with river views. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed.

The master bedroom suite had a really comfortable love seat and TV. The beds were very comfortable.

Location could not have been more convenient, only about a mile from groceries, pharmacies and many restaurants.

Overall, we loved location on the river. The chairs, couch and TV in the living room were average.

No doubt we would rent again. The owners were very nice and responded quickly to any questions.
