About Tony & Pam Abraham / Billy & Kay Scharber

We are two couples that have been lifelong friends. We raised our kids together, traveled together and bought the property next door and built a home away from home together. Only living an hour away we have enjoyed Homosassa for 30 + years and building our home here has made that so much easier.

Tony & Pam Abraham / Billy & Kay Scharber purchased this house in 2015

Why Tony & Pam Abraham / Billy & Kay Scharber chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

This is a very quiet, safe neighborhood. Since we own the property next door we knew this would be a great opportunity for us when this home came available. The deep water canal and dock are a huge plus.

What makes this house unique

Property is located on a deep water canal. Being avid boaters ourselves we know that having your own dock to pull up to after a day on the water is a huge plus. Shady backyard to relax while cleaning fish or scallops.

Great old Homosassa location

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed a month stay at this well kept, conveniently located home. The house was equipped with everything needed to make it move in ready for an extended stay. The inside was roomy and the furnishings were great. Located right on the water where we could fish, and watch manatees and even a dolphin play. I highly recommend this property.

Wonderful house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week with our grandchildren and they each took a friend for a weeks vacation. The house plan worked out great since the older girls took the bottom level and had their own bathroom, a living area with futon and large flatscreen t.v. and twin beds.

The boys were comfortable in the large master bedroom with their own t.v. On the upper level, while my husband and I were happy in the other bedroom for our own peace and quiet. We enjoyed time together in the comfortable family room with a nice leather sectional and at the dining table with room for everyone. The sliding door off the dining room opens onto a huge screened in porch with another large table with chairs. The kitchen is well equipped with anything you need for cooking. There was plenty of fluffy towels and a washer and dryer. The kids loved fishing in the canal, visiting the zoo, the alpaca farm and scalloping. This is a great place to stay", it's very clean and comfortable. We hadn't left the house before the kids asked to come back again. The owner was very helpful and easy to work with.

Great location- clean comfy house!

  • 5 of 5

Great location for scalloping and fishing adventures! The house is comfortable and clean. The kitchen is equipped with everything you need to make home cooked meals or cook your catch. The owners were prompt in answering any questions and supplied all the information we needed to enjoy our stay. We had a blast and are looking forward to coming back!

Perfect location and for our family of 5!!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the layout. Beds are comfy and rooms are very spacious with lovely decor. Would be perfect for two families. The first floor bedroom is huge with beds for 4 and floor space for many more air mattresses...read kid's area here!! Bathroom downstairs as well. Upstairs are two bedrooms for grown ups which share a large bathroom.

Our only disappointment was the upstairs enclosed porch. With no ceiling fan or air vents it was nearly impossible to make it comfortable enough to actually use. And we're from Orlando so hot, humid summer days are nothing new. Even with the windows open. It just didn't get enough ventilation. In the cooler months it may be a nice option. However the lower, covered but open deck with a ceiling fan was wonderful!!

The kitchen was a great size and well appointed.

The location was just close enough to McCrae's and Riverside that they were very easily accessible. One could easily ride their bikes here...good food options, GREAT adult beverage options, fun place! And just far enough away that we weren't always caught in the middle of the constant hustle and bustle there.

Overall we had a wonderful stay and would absolutely select this location again!!
