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. This photo shows our boat as we passed the webcam at McRae's.

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. Turn into our canal at Marker 76, right at the run zone out to the river.

PERFECT LITTLE GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5

This spacious little getaway is hidden well back off the river on a comfortable sized canal, sleeps 8, well maintained and has a very cozy setting. Being from the general area I've rented several places on the coast over the years and this one definitely ranks up there for cleanliness, curb appeal and setting. Plenty of room for big boats and the canal was deep enough I didn't run into any issues at low or high tides. Definitely would recommend and will keep this place in mind for a return visit in the future!

Great vacation getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented the cottage, along with another couple, and we had a great time! The cottage has a split plan for the bedrooms, which gave us plenty of space and didn't make it seem like we were tripping over one another. The cottage also has a large open kitchen and and outdoor charcoal grill, so cooking dinners was a breeze. We actually ate in more than we ate out, as the property is so nice that it's hard to leave.

We had two large trucks and a long boat trailer and still had plenty of extra space. We took our boat, which is a 24' center console, with twin engines, and there was still plenty of room on the dock for another boat. This is a deep water canal, so there was no problem getting the boat to and from the river. The canal the cottage is on is also one of the closest ones to the mouth of the river (gulf), so getting out for scallops was a much shorter trip. We saw small tarpon, mullet, and dolphin off of the dock and we caught numerous catfish...too much fun!

Publix, Walgreens and Walmart are all within a 10 minute or less drive, as are several good restaurants.

This cottage is newly renovated and the pictures don't even show how roomy and detailed it really is. I can't say enough about the owner and her son, who are both very friendly, helpful and informative...Thank you both soooo much!! We will definitely recommend the cottage to our friends and family and we are already planning another trip for next season! Clean, spacious, wonderful location and had a great time!!!

Owner's Response: Deanna, Thanks so much for letting me know how much you enjoyed our place and for booking with us. I'm technology challenged in updating pictures for the remodel after the hurricane but everyone that has stayed with us before are amazed at the transformation! Hope to see you next year.

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!
