About Cindy Waller

Homosassa is a step back in time. We live one hour away but rush to the River every chance we get. We own the houses on either side of this property so it was a stroke of good luck to be able to add this cottage to our rentals when it came up for sale. This cottage has given our extended family and friends lots of vacation memories. The adjacent 2 bed/2bath rental is available--perfect for large families. Away from the hustle and bustle, it really is a place to relax and enjoy nature.

Why Cindy Waller chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

This is a quiet, safe neighborhood where young and old alike can find plenty to do. Whether it's golf, fishing, swimming with the manatees, kayaking or just enjoying a quiet afternoon with a good book. It's very peaceful.

What makes this cottage unique

This property boasts of 75 feet of dock space. Drive your boat to the back door, clean your fish or scallops, and leave your gear for tomorrow's run. Manatees and dolphins occasionally make an appearance.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 days here in mid Feb. The cottage is beautiful, charming and very comfortable. It was the perfect space for the 5 of us and the location was fantastic. Very quiet area, . The owners were wonderful to work with, especially as this was a last-minute trip for us and they were very accommodating. We definitely plan on vacationing here again!

Well hidden secret in Homosassa

  • 5 of 5

There's nothing better than waking up in the morning, grabbing a cup of coffee and sitting out on the dock watching the sun come up. Unless of course, while your enjoying that cup of coffee and a friendly dolphin happens by to start your day like what happened yesterday morning.

The place is gorgeous with all new paint, flooring, appliances, etc. We had a blast here taking the kayaks out for a spin a couple times exploring the canals and out to the river. We even Bar-B-Que'd steaks, asparagus and fresh bay shrimp that we purchased from Donnie's shrimp co. (Local).

We also slept like babies in the big King size four post bed and our son likewise in the other queen bedroom. We were also able to do laundry to set us up with clean clothes for the next half of our vacation. So, the River Cottage had everything you could ask for in a rental house. We would recommend this place to anyone. Not to mention, if you need anything or have any questions, Cindy is always quick to respond, even when she's out on the golf course playing a round.

Perfect location for boaters!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week in November and could not have had a better stay. The house is very nicely appointed, very clean, and Cindy is a wonderful hostess. Beautiful yard and dock with plenty of room for trailer parking. Dock is in very quiet, protected area with no thru traffic. We will definitely return to stay again!

A great trip to Homosassa

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Homosassa and we could not have had a better experience. Everything was clean, organized and the owners were very helpful in guiding us where to go. We could not have asked for a better vacation spot. We will certainly be returning here in the future.

The Perfect Home -Away-From-Home.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first home three years ago that we stay twice during Scalloping season. The perfect location right near The Run if you are familiar with Homosassa but close enough to the Springs. The cottage is a perfect place to stay. One of my favorite features is their boat dock which is plenty big for two boats averaging 22+ feet.Also having your own cleaning station is a plus. Pricing I feel as totally fair as we waited late one year to book and paid a lot more for a house that was so-so. Looking forward to go again in two weeks.
