Beautiful view, nice open canal

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here. Two bedrooms and one full bath with a toilet in the garage. The house is well laid out with a big lanai and deck so you can soak in the outdoors. The pool was just perfect, heated at 86 and not too deep at 5 feet. Well stocked kitchen with most everything you need. The house was very clean and the furniture is comfortable. We enjoyed the Old Homosassa location, grocery stores are less than 4 miles away and just a couple blocks from The Freezer restaurant. Most of the time, it's a quiet neighborhood. The owner is close by and returns calls quickly although we didn't have any problems with the property.

Amazingly beautiful and such a relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

We all loved our stay. There was something for everyone to do. Kids swam and kayaked everyday. We ate at several restaurants that we were able to Kayak to. Coming from Oregon the weather was a perfect 80 degrees on arrival and 75 when we left. The kitchen had everything we needed. The dishwasher was broken so doing dishes by hand on vacation was a bit of a drag. Other than that everything was above and beyond what we imagined. Perfect vacation home for all of us. Would recommend this home to friends and would stay again.
