Overview

About the property

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 and Kate 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 and Kate Calhoun purchased this house in 2008

Why Donald M. Calhoun and Kate Calhoun chose Homosassa

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!

Wonderful time!

  • 5 of 5

I am from Florida and have been to Homosassa many times. This is by far the most beautifully decorated rental I have ever stayed at! I need the name of their decorator. We rented a pontoon boat and saw tons of manatees and lots of fish. We even saw manatees right off of the dock. We grilled out every night and sat on the screened porch. There are no neighbors on the right, so that was nice. Nicely appointed with everything we needed. Publix and marina only minutes away. We will be back!! Hopefully for scalloping season!

River House

  • 5 of 5

The River House was wonderful. The house is beautiful and well appointed. The river and property are magnificent. We enjoyed seeing manatee's, bald eagles, river otters, and dolphin right at the back porch. At the dock we could crab and the fishing was fun. What a great stay!

Thank you Kate and Don,

Marsha and Chuck

Perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

A small slice of Paradise. The house is everything it needs to be and more. The location is perfect. We go to Homosassa every year and have stayed in many different homes and this one we all agreed was the best. Had a great Scallop trip and the days we didn't go out we just kayaked at the house or relaxed at the springs. We saw tons of wildlife including dolphins and manatee's right of the dock. The dock is also a good size so we had our two boats tied up all week which was so convenient. This will likely be the first house we have ever used that we will return to again. Thank you for opening your beautiful home up to us to enjoy.

Beautiful River house

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year we have rented this property for Scalloping season. It is beautiful, well appointed, and close to everything. The property sits next to one of the springs and is a short paddle to the head spring. The home is exactly as shown in pictures and is very comfortable for 2 families. We wish the weather would have been a bit better, but we had a wonderful visit again in this beautiful home.
