                                                          Great location on the Homosassa River

                                                          Stayed here when we went scalloping with friends.The location in the Idle Speed zone, near McRae's, the Fish House and the Monkey Bar is awesome. The star of the show is the view however. From the living room and kitchen, it looks like you are on the river. The screened balcony is very comfortable to spend time watching the world float by. The private dock is huge and could accommodate several boats if needed. The property was well appointed with what you need for a nice stay. The lower level has a picnic table, hose and the gas grill and was a great place to stage your equipment for scalloping/fishing and includes a full bath for convenience. The only thing lacking is water and power at the dock, but that is a minor problem. Truly enjoyed the stay and plan to be back next year!

                                                          Very nice place

                                                          Enjoyed the property a lot. Plenty of room. Well stocked with kitchen stuff. Had coffee and toilet paper to get us started which was nice. Location is perfect. Owner is nice to deal with. Would be five star except for a few minor issues 1. The floor in the house is slanted:) Not a big deal really...more funny than anything. 2. The dryer broke...a bummer when in a place like Homosassa 3. Need to have a hose connection on the dock. That is a real pain. There is a really long hose but only reaches about halfway down the dock.

                                                          Nice home. Great location.

                                                          Cute home. Great location for scalloping and the springs. True to its name, Sunset Point.
