About Georges Desseyn

We fell in love with Florida since our first visit in 1987 and returned every year since then. In 2008 we finaly decided to buy a home in Inverness and make it our place to relax.

Georges Desseyn purchased this villa in 2008

Why Georges Desseyn chose North Central Florida

Inverness is a very nice little town in central Florida amidst beautiful nature. You don't have the hustle and bustle of the big cities and tourist centers but it is yet only an hours drive from the theme parks in Orlando or the beautifull beaches at the gulf of Mexico. There are numerous golf courses in and around Inverness, a bike trail, fantastic fishing...

What makes this villa unique

In Jan 2013 we installed a state-of-the-art solar pool heating system enabling us to offer complimentary pool heating to our guests. This represents a saving of $25 per day compared to the average charge. A heat pump supplements the solar system in the rare occasions where this should be necessary(we do not charge you for this extra service).

It's gorgeous!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely home, well equipped. Everything worked. We would return. The proximity to the bike trail is wonderful; only 2 blocks away. We didn't use the pool much, but it was nice to have it. Beds are excellent. Very clean. Nice dishes and silverware, plus lots of good cookware. We paddled 6 different rivers while we stayed there: Chassahowitzka, South Withlacoochee, Weeki Wachee (a bit too crowded for our tastes), Juniper Springs (go on a weekday to avoid crowds), Rainbow and Ocklawaha. Also biked the trail several different days. As for the house, we loved it!

Great location for biking the Withlacoochee Trail

  • 5 of 5

The house and pool are lovely, the kitchen is well supplied and it is just minutes from all shopping in Inverness. We really enjoyed the easy access (1/3 mile & no crossing of Rt 41) to biking on the Withlacoochee Trail. Crystal River, Dunnellon and the Villages offer many options for other activities, such as kayaking, shopping or movies.

Nice property backed up by a great property management team.

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean, well maintained and clean. We had one issue that was not the fault of the owner or condition of the property. We smelled natural gas coming from the gas meter on the outide of the house. After contacting the property manager, he took complete ownership of the problem and worked with the natural gas company to get the gas turned off and the leak repaired immediately. Very professional property management company.

A wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house in a nice, quiet neighborhood. The pool was beautiful and we really enjoyed the surrounding patio that had plenty of seating and tables. The kitchen had all the conveniences and the bathrooms, especially the master bath, were very nice. The living room furniture was very comfortable. We all felt the beds were kind of hard, but that's probably just personal preference. The house was clean and inviting. The owner and the property manager are very nice and easy to communicate with. We stayed in Inverness to visit family, and I hope to book this house again for future visits. Highly recommend!

Inverness is about beautful nature and relaxing. It is surrounded by lakes famous for its fishing and boating, the closest one being a 2 minutes drive from the villa where boat rental is available.

Look at the crane birds visiting our yard.

Have a ride on the Whitlacouchee bike path, probably Florida's best bike trail. The stretch from to villa to downtown Inverness is wonderfull, passing along lakes and parks (Liberty Park, Wallace Brooks Park). Bike rental available through my property manager.

Drive to Homosassa springs and have a drink at The Shed: beautiful view of the Homossasa rivier with Pelicans, dolfins... There is a band playing on weekends.

Eat seafood in one of the restaurants in Homosassa Springs. The Freezer is known for it's hughe portions of steamed shrimps.

Rent a pontoon boat and spend a day on the Homosassa rivier and the Golf of Mexico.

Want to visit the theme parks: Inverness is only a 75 minutes drive from Orlando (Disney, Universal...) or Tampa (Bush Gardens)

Spend a day at Pine Island beach which is kids friendly and has a tiki bar.

Want the authentic beach life? Head for clearwater beach: wilde long beaches, rentals, shops and restaurants.
