About Kenneth Smith

We grew up in Maryland so are lovers of water, fishing and crabbing in the Chesapeake Bay, swimming along the beaches in Ocean City and enjoying the wildlife throughout the state. Kenny's career caused us to both spend over 20 years in Bermuda so again we were captivated by the water. So when Kenny retired and we saw this gorgeous but quaint waterfront opportunity, we couldn't resist owning and enjoying it.

Kenneth Smith purchased this house in 2014

Why Kenneth Smith chose Homosassa

We saw the resort in 2013 while visiting my sister in a nearby retirement community so we booked a vacation there for the following February, 2014. We enjoyed it so much that when we saw this house go up for sale, we settled on it before the end of the following month. We've only owned the house since March 2014 but we hope you enjoy it and the surrounding activities as much as our friends, family and we do.

What makes this house unique

Manatees in winter, scalloping in summer, golfing and fishing year round, gorgeous views, beautiful home!

We Keep Coming Back

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at the house with the first being at manatee season. This time we scalloped and it was perfect just like the first time. The house was clean and fit my family perfectly. There were plenty of towels and the convenience of having the pool nearby to catch a fresh water swim was great! We ventured out to the Spring to enjoy some cool water and people watching as well. The location is the best!

Heaven on the river!

  • 5 of 5

We had two families stay together here for a scalloping trip and the home was spacious, well appointed and a perfect place for all of us to stay. We never felt cramped and found it easy to make lunches for 8 all at the same time. The pool was next door and easily accessed. We highly recommend for two families to stay.

A perfect vacation home to rent!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning. The house was equipped with everything we needed. It was easy having a boat ramp and dock to tie our boat to. Our children enjoyed playing tennis and swimming in the pool. The house was in a great location so that we could visit the springs and nearby restaurants. I would highly recommend this vacation home to others.

Great Stay in Homossassa!

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for a long weekend and found this property to be a perfect fit for our party of six. The home is nicely decorated, very comfortable, and spacious enough for all of us to enjoy our stay. We especially enjoyed sitting on the back patio in the early mornings with our coffees and in the afternoons enjoying our cocktails. While the only thing we prepared in the kitchen was our morning coffee, the home seems to have everything you would need to prepare meals. If you bring a boat, the house is on a canal with quick access to the river and many of the local restaurants and bars that are accessible by water. There is also a boat slip available for rent if you want to keep your boat in the water during your stay. We brought two boats and were able to use the boat ramp in the subdivision, which made it very convenient for us. While you cannot park your boat(s) at the house, they have a field near the entrance where you are able to park your boat(s)/trailer(s). Each afternoon we would unload the boats and store our gear in the garage for safe keeping and park the boats in the field. Since we had people coming from different locations, we ended up having 2 trucks and 1 car in our group. We were able to park one car in the garage, and the driveway just fit the two trucks. For restaurants, I can recommend Kim's Cafe for breakfast, The Freezer Tiki Bar for some great steamed shrimp and crab legs; however, both are very busy at peak times, so be prepared to wait for a seat! We also enjoyed drinks on the waterfront deck at Seagrass Waterfront Restaurant, which was located right across the river from the entrance to our canal. Both the property owner and property manager were very accessible and responded to any inquires we had in a timely manner. I would definitely stay at this property again next time we stay in Homosassa!

Wonderful place!z

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a month stay and this is home has It all! We loved our stay! This house was very clean. I'm very fussy and In the past have cleaned rentals upon arrival. No need to here. There's plenty to do in the area close by but the resort is very relaxing. Ken has stocked the house with everything one would need. Also has the best recliner ever! I would recommend to this home to anyone looking for a spot for a good family vacation. Looking forward to returning.
