About Kathy Koslow

My name is Kathy Koslow and my husband and I live in Weston, CT. We are a physician and therapist respectively and have been exploring various parts of Florida that we could eventually call home. When we visited Citrus County in the Winter of 2014 we instantly fell in love with the Nature Coast and the people that live here. We purchased a place in Homosassa (listing #591529) and have been in the vacation rental business ever since. We look forward to spending a lot more time in a warmer climate soon.

Kathy Koslow purchased this house in 2016

Why Kathy Koslow chose Lecanto

My husband and I are avid golfers and discovered Black Diamond Ranch in our search for a golf club we could call home. After a couple of years of playing many different courses throughout Florida none compared to the 45 championship holes at Black Diamond. We eventually decided to invest in a home in Black Diamond because we love everything about the community there: the golf, clubhouse, and tennis facilities are top-notch.

What makes this house unique

You can enjoy the benefits of a full golf membership at Black Diamond Ranch with your stay of 30 days or longer in our home. That means you, your spouse, and children under the age of 25 can enjoy access to the entire club including unlimited golf on the three Tom Fazio designed courses, fine and casual dining (dining and beverage charges are guest's responsibility), Har-Tru tennis courts, outdoor heated swimming pool, fully equipped pro shop, fitness center and wellness studio, and an active social events calendar. Could you spend the Winter in any better place?

VRBO has a five star limit, but this is a 15 star rental: five stars for the gorgeous house, five for the incredible golf & facilities at Black Diamond, and five for the homeowner who is phenomenal to work with.

If you like panoramic golf course views, indoor/outdoor living, and access to championship golf, this place is for you. If you have a question or request, Kathy will respond before you know it and make sure everything is perfect.

If you are anything like my wife and me, you will not want to leave.

The only problem with this home is you will be spoiled forever! The house - location - layout - decorations - pool/hot tub - Amazing! My wife and I own a high end Kitchen & Bath Design & Build firm. We were so inspired by this home we are returning home to build a Michigan version. Enough Said!
