Watch the fish jump in the adjoining Otter Creek whilst enjoying a quiet drink on the decking or a dip in the heated pool. . Enjoy the quiet, relaxed seclusion of this waterfront property with 5 minutes direct boat access to the clear Homosassa River and 20 minutes sail to the Gulf of Mexico. Use the kayak to get closer to the wildlife. See the manatees or just enjoy the fishing, sailing and golf courses in the tranquil area of Florida (1 hour drive North of Tampa). The Nature Coast of Florida deserves its name with over 98000 acres set aside as federal, state or county parks and preservation areas.
"We loved our week in the villa. It is really well equipped and has everything you need for a relaxing vacation. Great selection of DVDs as well and an mp3 dock. Kitchen is fully equipped and there is plenty of space to relax and chill. You will need a car but the supermarket is only around 5--10 minutes away. Loved having the kayak and the bikes and Mel was very easy to deal with and deposit was refunded promptly. We would love to return. My only suggestions to make it absolutely perfect would be that some of the very large trees could be cut back to allow more sun on the outside area and a 4th lounger would be grand! We asked to have the pool heated which we were very glad of but you still needed courage for the first dip!" The Culleys April 2013
"Lovely house in great location.First time in this part of Florida but will definitively be back" The Richard family August 2011.
I cannot think of a single thing we needed that was not provided for our two-day stay. There were three kayaks rather than the one we expected, and the two bicycles were in sound working condition. I've kept contact information in case we return to Homosassa, which, by the way, is a nice place for a getaway even for those of us who live in other parts of coastal Florida .
This was a great place to stay and had nice amenities. Fantastic big family room opening to an awesome screen porch. Pool was nice to have as well. Just wish we had more time to stay and could have used the kayaks that were available! Loved swimming with the manatees.
This is one of the best properties that I have stayed at in Homosassa. I am from the area and familiar with what you can get for the $$$. The owner represents the property well, I almost think it offers even more than the description.
Nice location, very well equipped and comfortable home - hope to come here again
This gem has everything needed for a memorable stay on Florida's nature coast. The property is situated on a small tributary leading to the Homosassa River. The property is exceptionally well maintained and includes kayaks, bikes and a swimming pool.
This was a great house for the two of us. We used the heated pool, the kayak and the deck. It is just a beautiful area. The owner was most accommodating and so easy to deal with. Very convenient to everything we wanted to do. We actually visited Homosassa Springs State Park twice. Can't say enough good about this house and Homosassa Springs!!!
Fort Island beach is 20 minutes drive to the North through a scenic winding road with saw-grass environment and in season the beach is supervised. Features WC's and shops. Pine Island beach is 30 minutes drive South and is again supervised in season with all facilities. Bathing is available from boats in the sparkling Homosassa River. Rainbow Springs is a swimming experience approx 45 mins drive to the North and there are many inexpensive boat, canoe and kayak hire companies in the area.
Tampa International Airport is 67 miles and Orlando International Airport is 98 miles away. Car hire is available at both airports.
There are many restaurants within easy reach of the property. Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park (5 minute drive) is a must-see attraction with manatees and other native Florida animals. Busch Gardens, voted No.2 Theme Park in the world with all its attractions is 1 hour drive away at Tampa. Orlando, which has all the Disney and Universal Theme Parks is approx a 1½ hours drive. Many great beaches are within 30 minutes to 90 minutes away.
The area is a delight for all nature lovers with extensive boating, fishing and 10 golf courses within easy driving distances. Old Homosassa is a preservation area with restricted development and so still has a lot of the charm but is still only 5 minutes drive from the local large supermarkets and shops. There is also a multi-screen cinema complex at the mall, which is a 20 minute drive.
