We loved staying here at Sunset Point! The house was furnished well and the hospitality was great!



We are sad it was such a short stay. We will come back and stay longer.

We enjoy living on the Homosassa River because of the peaceful atmosphere. Eagles perch on our trees. Dolphins swim pass and play. Pleasure Boats and shrimp-crab-fishing boats tug by daily. Our property is a nine-acre site that is surrounded by the Homosassa River, a spring fed waterway that flows with the tides. By boat or vehicle you can be fishing or swimming on the Gulf of Mexico in 30 minutes or less. This area offers many fun activities and is close enough to enjoy tourism in Orlando or Tampa. But you always can come home to the River...

Paula Kennard, Manager purchased this house in 2013

Sunset Point is located on nine acres. We live here, along with three permanent tenants. This is not a property that has been thrown together and has an absentee owner. It is not a 'wild and crazy party' house... Great love and care has gone into the development of this nine acres since the late nineties. Our land was a rare find and thousands of hours have gone into its development. We desire to share it's beauty, but maintain our home and lands deserved respect. For sure, Sunset Point has one of the best vistas of the water in all directions. The Sunsets are breathtaking. If you live in Florida, get here on a 'Want to 'Getaway' on a tank of gas... If you love boating, bring your boat... your own private river front Boat Dock awaits your visit. Navigate to the Gulf of Mexico. The water can't be better. Florida friends: Why would you travel two days out of state for vacation? Save time... vacation in Homosassa... If you close your eyes you can imagine being anywhere in the world right here in Homosassa. Now, to our out of state friends: Why would you come to Florida and not stop by to see the 'Ole Florida' where Native Americans camped on the shores of this fabulous river hundreds of years ago. The river islands are worth seeing via boat. Some brave folks even built homes on these islands. You cannot get a clear understanding of Florida from Disney. Come over here and relax with the mermaids. If you have never seen springs, don't miss ours. This is living with meaning, not traffic, noise and congestion. Welcome Home Friends!

Sunset Point's river views are breathtaking. Watch the shrimp and crab boats tug by. Birdwatching is fabulous. Fishing is great. THIS IS 'A PLACE TO REPLENISH YOUR SOUL!'

UNBELIEVABLE VIEW!!

  • 5 of 5
The home has an amazing view of the Homosassa River and sunsets. We enjoyed watching the birds and manatees from the balcony porch. It was also very convenient being able to dock our boat in front of the home. The grounds and home are very well maintained and we had everything we needed for a relaxing vacation. Including some of Pam's homemade ice cream! We would definitely recommend Sunset Point to our friends and family. And we can't wait to return. Thanks for a wonderful family vacation.

We stayed 5 days and 4 nights and loved every moment! The view was beautiful, the sunset was amazing and the weather was just right! Everything was how it was listed and we had no complaints. We are going to make this a yearly visit and are looking forward to renting with Paula again.

GREAT HOUSE, GREAT LOCATION, GREAT PEOPLE

  • 5 of 5
We recently stayed at Sunset Point for Fishing and Boating adventure in Homosassa. The house was Great and offered every thing that we could of hoped for. There were lots of little extras that other homes did not offer such as gas grill and water and electric to dock to name a few. The location was perfect for anyone who would like to come to the area for boating and fishing. Location is close to boat ramps, bait shops, and easy acsess to Gulf through well marked channels through Homosassa River. This home has one of the shortest runs to Gulf due to no canals and limited no wake zones as compared to other houses closer to Springs or in Mason Creek area. That serves the early bird well who is readty to hit his favorite fishing hole early in the morning. It is also close to springs for that afternoon leisurly ride. The owners are a joy to work with when it comes to booking and handleing arangements. They have a wonderful couple that live near by that serve as care takers for the house. If there is anything you might need they will surely help you in any way they can. All in all it was a absolutely GREAT experience and I highly recomend it to anyone intrested in visiting the area!

AMAZING VIEWS! AMAZING WILDLIFE!

  • 5 of 5
We had a Wonderful relaxing week! We saw otters, all kinds of birds, fish, dolphins and lots of manatees- and that's with out leaving the property! The house is beautiful ,very comfortable and has everything that you could need or want. Paula and Pam were so nice. There are many springs to visit in the area, lots of places to eat and stores for anything you could possibly want are just around the corner. Our last day, which was Easter Sunday, there were 9 manatees feeding right by the dock.
It was AMAZING!

AMAZING LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
What a lovely home! The location overlooking the river cannot be beat. The wildlife is amazing--manatees swim by the dock out front every evening, dophins capture fish in the lagoon in the side, an otter often swims by, and the birds--all kinds and everywhere! But what really makes this place special is the kindess and hospitality of Paula and George, the owners, and their incredible caretakers, Lenny and Pam. Pam was so thoughtful and always available with tips on what to do in the area, the best places to gas up the boat, and everything in between. We will be back!
