Excellent hosts, Excellent Experience

  • 5 of 5

The hosts for this property went out of their way to make our stay very enjoyable. They even brought us fresh fruit from their trees on Christmas morning. The house has great space, is very clean, and supplied everything that we needed for making meals. While this particular property isn't on the canal, the hosts were very gracious in encouraging us to use their kayaks and sunset deck which we took advantage of. It was really fun to paddle along the canal - until a big wind came up!

I would recommend this property and hope to visit again.

Wonderful Homosassa!

  • 5 of 5

If you want incredible scenery and wildlife that is easily accessible from kayaks or canoe, is off the beaten path from the more populous areas, the Creekside House is where you want to stay. Days can begin early on the water, exploring Mason Creek and surrounding waterways via kayak or canoe – this is a great spot for bird watching and seeing other animal life. My family kayaked/canoed to the mouth of the spring to swim with the manatees – this was a wonderful leisurely day trip that took roughly 3 hours (one way, with several stops) to get to the manatees, swim for several hours, and then back again for a late afternoon on the water. I cannot say more about how wonderful this location is for those that want quick, out-of-the-way access to the water and wildlife. The evenings can be spent quietly on the waterside watching the sunset. The house was fantastic. Rose and Captain Ron were gracious hosts and very helpful with everything one might need in Homosassa. Highly recommended location – will come back again and again.

We loved this house and town.

  • 5 of 5

Just spent an adults only getaway this past weekend at the Creekside House. Rose and Capt. Ron were more than hospitable, and helpful with everything from great places to eat, to good scalloping locations. The house is clean, comfortable and appeared just as advertised. The neighborhood is quiet, and secluded, and the access to Rose and Ron's dock, and kayaks was awesome. Steinhatchee used to be our "go to" scalloping spot...that has officially changed. Thanks Rose and Ron, see you next year!

Special Time with our Grandsons

  • 5 of 5

Captain Ron and Rose were wonderful! The house was spotless and well appointed. Rose has thought of everything. You only need to bring your food. However, if you go scalloping or fishing with Captain Ron, you won't go hungry. Special time in a special place.

What an awesome home.

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful visit. The house was perfect in every way with lots of room and a great kitchen. We used the kayaks and had a wonderful paddle in the marsh area. The landscaping was so beautiful. We enjoyed sitting on the deck on the point and the breeze. The air boat ride was really cool and it was neat to see some of the area around the marshes. I hope we can stay again. Rose and Cap'n Ron are such great hosts.
