Our property is located on the Gulf coast of central Florida. A quaint cottage nestled in the unincorporated area of Ozello, between Crystal River and Homosassa. Ozello is a small fishing community best known for its thousands of mangrove islands, tributaries and estuaries. Thousands of acres of marshlands surround Ozello. Because of this environment Ozello is a prime Florida fishing destination. And scalloping of course when in season.
We are just two miles in either direction from two different boat ramps, both are free of charge. One is located on John Brown road and the other is at Ozello Community Park. Both have easy access to plenty of fishing and kayaking.
We are just two miles in either direction of two awesome seafood restaurants. Pecks Old Port Cove and Backwater Fins. Both are full service restaurants. Also just a mile away is the Island Outpost where you can get gas for your boat without going all the way to town. Also you might be surprised to find that they have a restaurant inside. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. And the food is great, A must try while in the area!!!!
Our home is located on a canal so there is water access for canoes and kayaks. We have two kayaks for use with the rental.
The home is cozy and quaint. It has been totally remodeled with new tile and laminate floors. All new kitchen and bathroom cabinets.
This home is fully furnished so you need only to bring food and clothing for your stay.
There are two decks on the house. One in the front is not under cover but the one in back is.
Parking for one vehicle is under cover also but has plenty of room for more parking.
Inside is a living room with plenty of seating for the family or friends. There is a flat screen television with a brand new dvd/blue ray player and a few dvds. We recently installed an antenna for the television and it picks up quite a few local stations if watching television at night is your thing. We also recently installed a device to help with cell phone reception while inside the home but please be aware that there is still little to no reception in this area.And while it does help there is still no WiFi so you would be using data while on your stay.
As mentioned before the kitchen is totally remodeled and fully furnished. We also supply paper products and some spices in the spice cabinet. I would suggest that you bring whatever you need with you but should you forget something we have a few items on hand.
Bathroom is smaller than most but has everything you may need. Linens and toilet paper provided.
Master bedroom is quite large. It contains a queen size bed on one side of the room, and a futon on the other side of the room. The futon can be used for just sitting and relaxing, maybe reading a book, or as an extra sleeping space.
The second bedroom is very small and contains two built in bunkbeds on one side of the room and closet with drawer space on the other side of the room. This is a great space for little people, or big people if that be the case.
Out on the back deck there is a wooden swing to relax on, a round table to sit and eat at or play cards or whatever suits your fancy. Also there is also gas grill for your use.
We do have a dock to get access to the canal out back so should you want to bring your kayaks or canoes please feel free. We do have two kayaks for use by renters. These are unchartered waters for us so we can not tell you how to get around. It will be up to you to get out and do some exploring.
So if your looking for a great place to relax and to some fishing let us know.
