The property is directly on the Homosassa River just a stones throw from the Homosassa Springs Park and a short beautifully scenic ride to the Gulf of Mexico and world class fishing. 

Enjoy all the activities Florida has to offer. This Vacation Destination is 60 minutes from Tampa and Busch Gardens and 1 hour and a half from Orlando, Disney World, SeaWorld and Universal Studios. Clearwater and its beautiful beaches and Aquarium, the home of “Winter” star of “Dolphin Tales' are an hour drive from the house. Sandy white beaches are located in Chrystal River, a 15 minute drive or 25 minutes south to Pine Island. All the best of Florida... as Day trips!

This area is remote enough to take you away but close enough to major grocery chains & restaurants. At local establishments like the Riverside Crabhouse, The Freezer, MacRae's, Crump's Tiki Bar, the Old Mill Tavern and others... you will definitely experience true American small town friendliness teaming with local color.
