Unique and enchanting this refreshing retreat is located on a salt water lagoon just off the Mason Creek inlet to the Gulf of Mexico. The 1840 square foot 2002 Jacobsen Modular Home is nestled among native Cypress, Palm, Oak and Cedar trees on nearly 1 acre of land. This property is in an area of secluded homes (only three other homes are on this canal) but is only a few minutes away from the eating, shopping and sight seeing venues of Homosassa. In the backyard you’ll find an incredible screened-in tiki hut awaiting your family get-togethers. At night swap ghost stories (or tales of the big one that got away) around the campfire ring; in the morning watch the mullet jump and the dolphin and manatees play. On the opposite bank of the lagoon is a preservation area which begins the Chassahowitzka National Wildlife Refuge. Unbelievable exploration opportunities abound as the inlet is directly connected to the various Homosassa Springs waterways including the upriver springs, the Gulf of Mexico, the Crystal Reefs/Island, and the nationally recognized canoe and kayaking trails. As rustic and naturally beautiful as this area is you will not suffer for lack of modern conveniences inside the home. All modern appliances and cable TV, WiFi internet access, vaulted ceilings, fresh and invigorating Homosassa Springs water system and a romantic and cozy fireplace are there to make your stay comfortable and memorable.
River Safaris and other Nature tours are available in town, or bring
your own boat and make an adventure of your own, if you dare.

British Invasion to Old Homosassa
Family & friends flew over for a visit and exploring the west coast of Florida before "doing" a few days at Disney. I must say that this Is just like coming home. I had inquired If there were enough pot's and pans to make our Easter dinner and was assured there were, that was an understatement, so many cupboards in the kitchen - there was a little bit of everything and some!! Tried to get everything back together and ship shape before leaving but were a little hindered by a huge storm which sent us all to the tiki bar where we thoroughly enjoyed the light show. Must say the tiki bar Is a huge plus and kept my pale skinned English family away from the noseeums , also thoroughly enjoyed the kayaks. All in all a very enjoyable stay in your home and hope to be back again. Oh and my brother in law said he had a great trip down the river on the African Queen - that bit was a joke :) :) ... Places to go and visit (with children) Weekie watchee mermaids & swimming hole, Homosassa state park, Crystal river, swimming at Rainbow river, Silver springs state park, Ocala square for lunch, lunch at Swampy's Dunnellon, Dinner at The Old mill. Kings bay.(best ice cream on the bay) Farmers market at four corners, the list goes on. Yes this Is very central for everywhere :).............Thank's again!. - Julia
Secluded and quiet.
Enjoyed our stay for the month of March. Nicely decorated and spacious. Loved the feeling of seclusion even though it was close to shopping and local attractions. Very relaxing!
The property was perfect! Better than expected
My family really enjoyed spending Thanksgiving at this house. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed to prepare a traditional dinner. It rained for a straight 24 hours! Which was ok because of the screened in Tiki hut. We could sit out there and enjoy the sound of the rain without getting wet and without feeling trapped inside all day. The rest of the weekend the weather was perfect to enjoy the kayaks and bonfire. The owners are super easy to work with and we’re very specific on how to get into the house and what was expected when we left. I would definitely rent this home again! Thank you for the great memories our family shared.
Great accomodations in great location!
The tiki bar yurt was amazing and a great screened in gathering spot for a group. Great spacious home with huge kitchen and living area. Foosball table was fun as well.
Salt water retreat off Mason Creek
Stayed 4 days with family of eight. Great property on navigable canal. Dock with kayaks and sups were great. Tiki bar really made for a nice outdoors meeting space for everyone.
Perfect relaxation spot
Great house, plenty of room , very secluded. Love the tiki bar it felt as if we were going out to a lounge when we were there. The kids had a great time with the kayaks and the fishing area. Can't beat the fire pit for Smores with the kids
