Overview

Homosassa Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Welcome to the Daydream Cottage our 2/2 home for rent in Old Homosassa; a nature lover’s paradise and world renowned FISHING destination! Unplug on the Nature Coast and experience a simple barefoot lifestyle!

This secluded home is set on THREE ACRES of private wooded property on Mason Creek. This is a fantastic location to get away, unplug, go fishing, boating, diving or experience old Florida in any number of theraputic ways. Dock your boat at your own PRIVATE DOCK or launch at any of 3 free ramp locations less than 4 minutes away. Picture 230 feet of private water frontage with endless waterways to explore. CANOE, KAYAK or load up your outboard for a day on the water! A scenic 15 minute boat ride will take you into some of Florida's best fishing areas in the Gulf of Mexico or cruise up the Homosassa Springs River toward Homosassa’s Wildlife Park where you can SWIM WITH MANATEES in crystal clear springs! (By land the Nature Park is less than 5 minutes away.) Only 10 minutes from highway 19; 20 minutes from Crystal River; 30 minutes from Weeki Wachee, golfing within 5-10 miles, this area is remote enough to take you away but close enough to major grocery chains & restaurants and other fun excursions. At local establishments like the Riverside Crabhouse, Neon Leon's, MacRae's and the Old Mill Tavern you will undoubtedly experience America's small town friendliness teeming with local color.

Our simple Florida lifestyle home is not high-end-fancy but it is absolutely clean and fully furnished for your comfort and convenience. Our favorite spot is the breezy 13 X 26 foot screened porch overlooking the water. This is where your daydreams begin. We have lovingly named it PARADISE PORCH. Step inside to a large comfortable great room with a panoramic view. The large island kitchen is well equiped. Other features are an indoor laundry; two full bathrooms and two bedrooms (one has a double-size bed and the master has two twin beds). All bed and bath linens are furnished and of high quality. The spacious living room will accommodate additional day guests. Enjoy the peace and tranquility of staying on the water and enjoy the sounds and sights of nature including, egrets, blue heron, ospreys, manatees, dolphins, otters, deer and hummingbirds! Spend endless days on the water FISHING and BOATING. No boat? No problem! There are plenty of charter excursions and boat rentals available in the area.

Whether you just want to relax and allow daydreams to visit or you want to take in all that Florida has to offer, this is the perfect place. Less than 2 hours to Walt Disney World; less than 1 hour to white sandy beaches. Less than 1-1/2 hours to Tampa Bay area & Busch Gardens.

We are awaiting your inquiry at the Daydream Cottage!

About Glenn or Laura

We live and work in Orlando, Florida but found our favorite vacation spots are not overcrowded beaches, highrises & tourist attractions, rather, we enjoy areas like this nature coast paradise. We chose this place because we felt others would enjoy a unique kind of place with lots of space, privacy and being on the water. We think our rental has a relaxing cottage-in-the-woods feeling, is rejuvenating, serene and once you get here you will not want to leave.

Why Glenn or Laura chose Homosassa

If you are looking for a private natural setting with gulf access that is comfortably furnished, well equipped & very clean, but is not so fancy and not so pricey give us a call.

What makes this cottage unique

Lots of parking space for your RV, boat, etc.

Very private, quiet setting of unspoiled nature with access to the Gulf of Mexico and other popular and endless waterways.

Relaxing escape!

  • 5 of 5
I would highly recommend the Daydream cottage to anyone looking for a Florida experience different than going to the beach everyday. The cottage was clean and comfortable. We felt welcome as if it was our own vacation home. The first night we arrived, several dolphins swam by the deck and another a couple of days later. We also saw two manatees, a mom and calf. Renting a kayak and visiting Three Sister's springs is a must. I would love to visit again in the winter when the area is full of manatees! Make sure you get your fish and mullet dip from Shelleys and definitely go to Neon Leon's. Thanks so much for a wonderful vacation!

Owner's Response: We're so pleased you enjoyed your stay. I see you found Shelly's for fresh seafood! Nothing compares to eating fish and shrimp that are fresh off the boat!

Paradise Again

  • 5 of 5
This was our 2nd Annual visit to Paradise, we absolutely love it here. Glenn and Laura provide a wonderful home away from home. They have filled the kitchen with anything we could possibly need to do our cooking. We love sitting on the screened porch, or in the hammock, looking out on the water, listening to all the birds in the area, the breeze through the yard under all the trees is awesome. Our first morning 3 otters swam by the dock playing and catching fish. The mullet were jumping constant. We also saw 2 dolphin swim by the dock. We took a boat ride from the dock to the Homosassa Springs for a swim, there are no bridges from this property to the river, having our map on board proved helpful, thanks Glenn for showing us where the boat ramp is. See you next year!

Nature at its best

  • 5 of 5
We spent the month of Feb. enjoying all of the beauty this property and nature has to offer. The cottage was very comfortable and the setting was amazing. Saw dolphin, manatee, otters, and ospreys just to name a few. Loved the surrounding area, it really is getting away from it all. Spent a lot of time on "Paradise Porch". Great place to relax and observe the nature around you. Our Boston Terrier, Ellie, loved sunning on the dock and chasing the heron and egrets that landed nearby. Thank you Glenn & Laura for sharing Daydream Cottage.

Incredible Vacation Spot!

  • 5 of 5
This rental was one of the best I have ever been at. I felt so "at home" in a very beautiful place. Very clean, well taken care of, everything you could possibly need and more! Loved the Island in the kitchen, and the porch became one of my favorite spots. My family and I enjoyed bonfires, fishing off the dock and just relaxing. I will be back! I did not want to leave there at all. Thanks Glenn & Laura for a wonderful stay!

Fabulous spot

  • 5 of 5
I cant even begin to tell you how awesome this place is. I encourage you to stay here if you want to relax and enjoy the quietness. All I can say is we didn't want to leave. The cottage was spotless when we arrived and it was spotless when we left. Fantastic place to bring our dogs to run and play. Simply fabulous. Thank you Glenn for waiting for us. The wine was our of this world. Thank you and we will most certainly be staying again.
