About the property

Villa in Homosassa, Gulf of Mexico - Peaceful location full of nature but close enough for day trips to beaches, golf & amusement parks!!

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"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 .

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

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.

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.

Beautiful home on the beautiful Otter Creek. We loved it so much, coming back next year.

  • 5 of 5

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!!!
