Excellent place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We love coming up to Homosassa every summer to do some scalloping and spend time together just getting away from it all. The house was perfect for us! Plenty to do on a nice silent canal. PERFECT FOR KAYAKING! The pool was very much enjoyed by my kids as well as the large screened in porch! We will defiantly be staying here again!

Casual comfortable retreat!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect place to relax, enjoy the natural beauty of Old Homosassa. The house was comfortable and we'll appointed. The Kitchen was well equiped. We enjoyed the lanai, deck and dock...and loved the pool! Having a garage was a definite plus. We truly felt 'at home' at Mel's place....we will come back! There is so much to do in and around the 'Nature Coast' that we could have stayed for several weeks and not gotten to see it all! Well worth the trip!!

more than we expected!! The house had everything you need to enjoy a beautiful relaxing stay.

  • 5 of 5

My family had a blast!! The children never got bored...they kayaked, swam in the beautiful pool, played games, rode bikes around the quiet little neighborhood. The house had everything a family would need, all we had to bring were our clothes. We will definitely be back to create more beautiful memories with our family.

A great place to unwind and enjoy the natural gifts that Homosassa has to offer. Just what we needed

Awsome !!

We have stayed here before and couldn't wait to get back.

The open floor plan, the pool, the deck and being on the water make for a perfect vacation spot for us.

Homosassa is so laid back that you can relax and leave the city behind.

Fishing is good and a trip to the Springs will leave you refreshed and invigorated.

Also, being right down the canal from the "Freezer" (local seafood restaurant) makes it easy to decide whats for dinner.
