My husband and I are lifetime Florida residents and we love the water. We love fishing, snorkeling, and boating. Homosassa Springs offers all of this and more.

Sandra purchased this house in 2009

We decided on Homosassa Springs because it offers so much beauty and adventure in a natural setting of a Florida lifestyle.

OLD FLORIDA GET-AWAY

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I have long wanted to visit the Crystal River / Homosassa area and try scalloping. Been thinking about it since we moved to Florida many years ago. Finally got around to it this year and made a spur-of-the-moment decision to go.

Since we have had good success in the past using VRBO that's where we started looking for a place to stay. We thought we would take our boat over so a consideration was a place on the water where we could dock it and have access to the Gulf. We quickly found this property and decided it was exactly what we wanted. We sent an email inquiry and heard back in no time at all. The owner's were exceptionally helpful in making the arrangements and providing extensive information about the area as well as recommendations about restaurants, scalloping guides, etc.

After talking with a local guide and booking our initial scalloping excursion, he strongly recommended that we not bring our boat on this first visit. Since we were only staying a few days we decided to take his advice and left the boat at home. No regrets -- we had a 'no stress' scalloping adventure. Next time we will probably take the boat now that we some experience (we boated extensively in other areas of Florida).

The property is great! Well furnished and well maintained. We took advantage of the kayak for a morning of paddling on the canals around the property. Also had dinner at The Freezer a couple nights and highly recommend it.

We look forward to a longer return visit in the future, probably along with our extended family. We both found that we really like this laid back, 'old' Florida area.

AMAZING!!

  • 5 of 5
We vacation in Homosassa every year during scallop season, but I must say that I think we may have found the place we want to come back to every year! This rental felt just like home!!! There were a few days that it rained and we couldn't get out to scallop, but with all the games, HUGE tv, and super comfortable furniture we had plenty to do and enjoyed every minute!! The home is beautiful!! The few days we did get to go out and get scallops it was so nice to be able to leave our boat in the water, cruise on down to the springs then come back and clean our scallops on the dock! This place is PERFECT!!! Thank you so much for opening your home to us!! Hopefully we will see ya next year!!

GOLF, FISH AND HANG OUT IN THE SUNSHINE, WHAT A LIFE!

  • 5 of 5
We arrived just after the first of January and here it is almost April already giving new meaning to “time flies when you’re having fun.” A beautiful home fully equipped with about anything you could wish for and very comfortable. The owners James and Sandra are the kind of folks you would like to have living next door, just about as nice as anyone could be. The large screened in porch is great for entertaining or just hanging out watching the mullet jump in the canal. Bicycles provided are great for touring the neighborhood and the provided double kayak gets you on the water. It’s just a short paddle to the river or take a leisurely trip through the marsh. Nice golf courses abound and most with reduced green fees.
If you are an Elk the nearby Homosassa Elks offer a Friday night dinner and other activities including a great golf league. The Inverness Elks is about ½ hour away offering many activities as well, including our favorite their Friday night dinner dance. The Homosassa Wildlife Park is a must see and provides a very enjoyable day and is only minutes away, Oh, and if you like shrimp don’t miss the Freezer another very short drive. The best shrimp we have ever had! Don't leave without trying them. About a mile away is the Homosassa Smoke House and if you like ribs and pulled pork don’t miss it and be sure to add their Cole slaw to your order!
