The area's waterways are home to a large diversity of wildlife including manatees, river otters, porpoise, and many species of birds, fish and shell fish native to the west coast of Florida.

Old Homosassa still retains the charm of a river village setting with riverfront restaurants, art galleries, fresh seafood shops, and of course a few old time honky tonks for evening entertainment.

HOMOSASSA --- THIS IS PARADISE!!!

Left the cold winter of Ontario, Canada and found HEAVEN!! Creekside House exceeded our expectations! We fell in love with this property and location the instant we arrived. Loved the location -- it was quiet and serene with an abundance of birds and picturesque views. Found our rental to be very comfortable, clean and very well equipped --- it had all the comforts of home! Owners (Rose and Captain Ron) were very accommodating and helpful during our stay! To make our stay enjoyable, they included a binder complete with information about activities, attractions and restaurants. Really enjoyed the food & shopping found in this area. If you're in this area, we highly recommend "The Freezer" ---best fresh shrimp, and a very casual and friendly atmosphere! We were fortunate to attend the "Shrimpa-Palooza" festival, it reminded us of our own "Bayfest" event in our hometown of Port Rowan, Ontario! During our stay, friends and family wintering in this area stopped by for visits and complimented on the picturesque location and the spaciousness of our rental. As retirees, we were looking for a winter retreat that offered small town living with activities and attractions that were affordable and suited to our interests and we found it in Homosassa! We wouldn't trade our time in Homosassa for the glitz and glam of other destinations -- we loved our stay so much that we are returning again next year! Thank you Rose and Captain Ron for making our time in Homosassa inviting and comfortable!!

Great house, great location

My wife and I stayed in this comfortable house for the whole month of December.
The house is nice and clean and very nicely decorated.
We did a lot of kayaking in the area, and it’s such a nice spot to do this activity. We saw plenty of manatees, and also lots of birds. I can understand why this is called the nature coast, so if you like nature at its purest, then give it a try.
We played golf a couple of times, and if you do choose to hit the links, then go play at World Woods. It’s a fantastic 36 holes complex with some of the best golf we’ve ever seen (can easily compare to the top courses in Myrtle Beach). It’s about 25-30 minutes to get there.
As for the owners of the house, Rose and Captain Ron, they are really nice people. They are there for you if you need them, and they will help you in many ways to make your stay the best.
Their knowledge of the area can only help you discover the surroundings the best way possible. We did go out on a pontoon ride and also an air boat ride with them, and it was great fun.
Can’t go wrong with this place and these owners, 5 stars all the way.

Great Homosassa location!

Our family of five enjoyed a wonderful, relaxing week together at the Creek Side House. Our kids aged 18 -25 were with us and had plenty of room to themselves in the Catpain's Quarters downstairs. It was a perfect set up for our family. We brought our boat with us and fished a little, went kayaking a little, and relaxed a lot. The Creek Side House is an excellent choice for folks who love Florida's Nature Coast. The dinner and "show" at Neon Leon's should not be missed. The entertainment might be a little loud for some but the food was great. We saw the manatees at Homosassa Springs, too! The owners, Captain Ron and Rose, were very accommodating. It's nice having them close by in case we needed anything, and we did need end up needing help with a dead battery on the boat. Thanks to Captain Ron for letting us use his battery charger to get us back on the water! We had a great time at The Creek Side House and look forward to our next visit!

Recently stayed at Creek Side House and loved it! More importantly my wife loved it!! It is everything that it is advertised to be and more. Believe all of the previous positive reviews about how wonderful this house is and how wonderful Capt. Ron and Rose are.The neighborhood is peaceful and quiet, yet conviently located to local restaurants, shopping, Springs, Wildlife Park,Historical sights and more. Also very close to local boat ramp. For the Gals, this place is as clean as they say it is! It is beautifully and very tastefully decorated. For the Guys, you have the gas grill, a outdoor set up for frying fish and Capt. Ron's expert knowlege of the local waters to keep your boating experience safe and fun. Enjoy all that this area has to offer by day, then light a fire in the fire place and sit back and relax at night. I will plan to go back!

We greatly enjoyed our visit and especially appreciated Rose and Captain Ron's efforts, they could not have been any nicer. The accommodations were great and we lacked for nothing. Their guidance also made our fishing much easier and productive. The crab traps, that Captain Ron had set, made for a great meal our last night. I highly recommend this if you're looking for a great get away except for the dates I want to reserve it next time.
