Homosassa House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bath, sunny and bright with decks, patio, and fantastic water view

*Free use of Carolina Skiff J14 for September, October, November, December rentals.

Meticulously remodeled to be the best vacation rental in the area, Otter's Den is wheel chair friendly with a chair lift in the garage and 3ft or wider doors throughout except in the guest hallway, bedroom and bath. 60 ft of dock space on a deep water canal means your boat is in your back yard ready to head for the Gulf, the springs, or even a waterfront restaurant. Most furniture and appliances are brand new including all beds (King in master bedroom, 2 twins that can be moved together in the guest bedroom.) Master bath area has a walk in closet, travertine (real stone) shower stall, and new toilet, sink, exhaust fan and light fixtures. Guest bath has tub, shower, and is newly tiled with all new fixtures as well. the kitchen and dining area sports a new dishwasher, electric stove with stainless hood, built in microwave, a huge walk-in pantry, double door refrigerator with ice maker and through the door water dispenser, toaster, blender, and quality flatware and service for 8. There is a 60 inch plasma TV in the living room, and LCD TV's in the bedrooms and kitchen. The home has vaulted ceilings and an 'open air' feel with lots of skylights and pocket doors that disappear into the walls leaving a vast open view of the spacious deck, the dock, the water and wildlife. A large 2 car garage and driveway should take car of your vehicles, but there is extra parking nearby for boat trailers and possibly an RV. Recreational amenities include 2 bicycles, a double kayak, a single kayak, canoe, 2 spinning rods with tackle for fishing off the dock. Serious anglers should bring their own gear. A four person 14ft Carolina Skiff with 2 bench seats, Bimini top and 9.9 hp Evinrude four stroke motor is available to qualified boaters for an additional fee. The house is on a private paved single lane road facing 3 acres of undeveloped deciduous woods. Most houses in this neighborhood are owned by weekenders who come 'up to the river' for fishing, boating, or just to relax.

About Terry Evans

While building our little pocket cruiser my wife and I decided, finally, to move to our favorite waterfront Florida getaway - Old Homosassa. We'd been visiting here and bringing friends for years and always dreamed of living here permanently. Now we do!

Terry Evans purchased this house in 2012

Why Terry Evans chose Homosassa

When another house in our quiet neighborhood became available, we bought it from the owner before it was ever listed on the market. The neighborhood is perfect, the house is well constructed and has always been well cared for, and the waterfront location is the best in the area. Had the house been available when we were shopping for ourselves, I'm sure we'd be living there now.

What makes this house unique

60 feet of dock space on a deep canal 1/2 mile from the Homosassa River, 3 miles from the Gulf of Mexico makes the house a boater's dream. The rear deck is huge, the back porch/family room, living room, kitchen and master bedroom all have great water views and north light without glare.

The home was just as beautiful as the pictures. Beds were so comfortable and everything we needed was here. The long view down the canal from the back deck was spectacular. We saw porpoises, otters, racoons, snakes, heron, mullet from the back deck. We enjoyed the use of the Carolina Skiff. Took it up to Blue water to go swim with the Manatees and almost to the gulf to go fishing and crabbing. Owner went a step further a bought crab traps for our daughters to use. Went bike riding throughout the Natural preserve. Visited the Crystal River parks and other beach accesses. Great vacation. Terry and Jackie were wonderful. Thanks for the ride on The Patuka Princess!

Wow! What a beautiful house and location! We truly have enjoyed our time at Otter's Den. The house is huge, very clean and very nicely furnished with well thought out ammenities. Everything about the house is just great and love the decorating style. Terry and Jaki are wonderful and helpful with all sorts of local information. Thank you so much for providing the skiff and kayaks - truly made the trip. Nash loved the open floor plan and enjoyed walking throughout the house (when he wasn't laying around sleeping that is!).

I can't recommend this property enough. We saw a manatee from the dock and tons of birds throughout the channels and river. We recommend taking a visit to Riverside Crab House to see Monkey Island. A trip to The Freezer for the shrimp is a must! We hope to come back on our next trip to visit family and stay at Otters Den again.

Owner's Response: Thank you Missy - and if my detective work is correct, she is the guest that left the copper and colored glass tiki torches. What a lovely gift and wonderful addition to the deck and patio.

Old Homosassa is a picturesque old Florida fishing village located on a beautiful little river - 7 miles from the springs to the Gulf of Mexico. The house is on deep water Otter Creek, just off the main river, and only 1/2 mile from a state kayak park with an observation tower overlooking the Chasahowitzka wildlife reserve. A bicycle can get you anywhere, even off road into the reserve. Most popular activities are kayaking, fishing, boating, scalloping, snorkeling, and swimming in the spring's 'blue water.' It's one mile to MaCrae's waterfront bait house and bar and Nativie Sun tours offering air boat rides through the vast tributaries and backwaters, fishing and scalloping trips. The wildlife park is a must see. While they specialize in manatee rehabilitation, all the birds and animal species native to Florida are there. There's even an observation room sunken into the fresh water spring where you see multitudes of both fresh and salt water fish species swimming wild. A favorite activity is just sitting on the dock with or without a fishing rod. You can see manatees, dolphin, river otter, great blue herons, bald eagles, turtles, an occasional alligator and much more.
