Places to stay in Homosassa
Enjoy the soothing laid-back lifestyle of a waterfront vacation when you escape to Homosassa for a jaw dropping view of the river from your brand new private honeymoon cottage. Enjoy biking, hiking, fishing, boating, kayaking or simply taking the sun. Our small town is cozy, quiet and friendly with plenty to see.
This is a small studio but the privacy and view are huge. The airy inviting space is decorated with a subtle nautical feel using local antiques and photos. Luxurious linens help you snuggle up at night. There is a kitchenette with refrigerator, freezer, microwave, toaster oven, hotplate, coffee maker and blender for those frozen tropical cocktails. You will truly enjoy the private elevated patio deck with barbecue and patio furnishings.
Most homeowners in our neck of the woods are strictly part time residents. We are lucky to be of the few who live here year around so the neighborhood is quiet and peaceful. If you are an early riser you are certain to see the charter boats heading out in the mornings as all of the local birds fly onto our back porches looking for breakfast snacks. In the evening just around dinner time, the local shrimpers load up their boats and head out for a nights work as the rest of us watch the gorgeous sunsets or head on over to the local watering hole for some live music.
  • Beyond beautiful if you love kayaking in uncrowded nature. Wonderful host and spotless apartment. The breakfast Sunny delivered to our room each morning was delicious. The only thing you need to be aware of is that staying does require stairs, which is obvious from pictures. Truly a gem .

  • We LOVED our stay at this little slice of paradise! Beautiful and relaxing location. Amazing sunset. Can’t wait to come back!

  • Amazing find for peace and tranquility. Sunday & Sal are the perfect hosts.

    Sally2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • I would highly recommend staying at this Airbnb! Everything was excellent, from the beautiful cottage to the outdoor amenities! Sunny went above and beyond to make the experience unforgettable. We had a wonderful stay and wish it could have been longer!

    Amy2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • This place is amazing. Honestly can't imagine there being a better place to stay in Homosassa.

    Aaron2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • We had an absolutely incredible time, and Sunday's breakfast can't be missed!! My husband and I were completely blown away by how cute the room and whole property was, and the hot tub was an excellent way to warm up and relax after a day of manatee adventures. No doubt if we're ever in the area again we know exactly where we want to stay! 10/10 on everything!

    Megan2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • We only could stay one night, but it was worth the drive, soo cozy, great view, went to backwater fins for dinner and it was amazing.. everything was perfect

    Amanda2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Sunday’s and Sal‘s home is absolutely amazing. We Don‘t think there is any better place to stay in Homosassa. The apartment is fully equipped, if you miss something, Sunday and Sal will be happy to help you out. You also have a grill, a little beach and are free to use the Kajaks, bikes and the hot tub. They even offer breakfast, which is absolutely amazing. Another highlight for us were Charlie and Humphrey, their cat and turtle. They are so lovely! All in all the best Airbnb apartment we‘ve ever stayed in! We highly recommend you staying in their lovely River Pearl and would return anytime.

  • Great location, easy kayak access to the world of manatees at Homosassa Springs State Park. Also easy to great birdwatching spots and a lot of great restaurants. The cottage has everything we needed.

    Phil2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay when exploring Homosassa. Kayaks are a big plus so you don't have to go out and rent by the day. Kayaked to the spring to see the manatees! The information and communication provided by Wade is very thorough. Kitchen well stocked with necessities and ice machine is a winner! Kayaks are in good condition, and outdoor area is very nice. Better than pics!

    Carol2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • The experience of paddling with the manatees was unbelievable. Great location and very nice house.

    Carol2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Great amenities and wonderful location!

    Andrea2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Our home was clean and as described. Since wecould not kayak we would have liked more ideas for hiking and alternative ideas. We found our own and loved the quiet natural setting of the area.

    Jack2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • We rented this space for my 30th birthday with the main focus being access to water and manatees. We were not disappointed! The kayaks were an amazing asset, and frankly, a money saver to have them available for our use at any time. The canal water isn't sparkling clear, but we caught fish just off of the dock and saw ducks and other birds. A VERY short paddle to the springs in the Homosassa River gave us nearly instant access to the manatees. They were EVERYWHERE due to the cold weather during our stay. We spent a ton of time on the kayaks and the hosts allowed us to check out late so we could go one last time before we left. The outdoor space is lovely, we spent a ton of time sitting by the canal and grilled out on the patio using the charcoal grill. There are these very cool wooden chairs by the canal that were super comfy to sit on and bask in the sun. The kitchen was well stocked and we had plenty of space to hang out inside of the house. When we walked in I was pleased to see that everything was very clean, and the host had provided us with a full list of information in case we needed something. The only things that were not ideal for us were the daybed mattresses being too thin for an adult (they'd be ok for a child, I think), and there not being fans in the bathrooms to help clear out the humidity. While it is obvious that this is an older home, the hosts ensure that it is kept clean and tidy, and truly do their best to offer any help or amenities they can. I really enjoyed the ease of staying here and the outdoor space was a plus for me. Also, if you're looking for a manatee tour, we have gone with River Ventures for their snorkeling tour multiple times and love them. Spring for a private tour, you won't be disappointed!

    Sarah'S2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Everything was great! We especially liked having kayaks that we could put in the water to paddle around to Homosassa Spring to see the manatees.

    Karen2020-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • Great place, great location. We really enjoyed our stay. The kayaks were in good shape. The canal behind the house is upstream of the Halls river bridge, so if you're planning on renting a boat from one of many marinas downstream of the bridge and leaving it at the dock make sure it will fit under the bridge. Homosassa spring (where manatees congregate in the winter) is about a 1.25 mile kayak from behind the house.

  • Susan was a wonderful host! We only stayed one night, but hope to go back sometime in the future. It was a little Oasis by the river. Loved our gator neighbors as well!

    Victoria2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • The tree house is a true hidden gem. It was amazing to stay in a place where you can just walk to where you want to go! The green beautiful majestic trees, the sounds of the birds while relaxing on the deck was just what we needed as an escape from winter. And being onsite for all our adventures on the river with super helpful and friendly staff was so easy and fun!!! There aren’t too many places where you can say that resident alligators are your closest neighbors! We already miss it and are sure to be back. Thank you River Ventures!!!

    Sara2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • This house is amazing for a fun, relaxing and nature filled get away. We loved the “cabin” feel mixed with the uniqueness of the treehouse! The rooms were huge and the house was stocked with everything we needed. The location was great, and the things to do are within walking distance which is awesome. The hosts are so friendly and welcoming and made sure my friend enjoyed her birthday and we had a great trip! We will definitely be back. This is a very special place to stay!

    Katherine2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • The tree house was a very cozy little place nestled under mossy oaks that were lit by the sun every evening. The house was clean and everything was very easy to find.

    Claudine2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • This is a perfect balance of privacy and convenience. Sitting on the deck is incredibly relaxing and having the shop next door for a quick meal is a great, or shopping and restaurants are nearby. There are few places better for relaxing after running around all day seeing the sights.

    Scott2019-12-11T00:00:00Z
  • Thanks! Great time!

    Kristin2019-11-27T00:00:00Z
  • The Treehouse was a great fit for our family of 5. The first night we enjoyed takeout from Cedar Key/The Freezer, played board games and just enjoyed the location. The next day we kayaked to Homosassa Springs, ate lunch at Marguerita Grill and after a rest back at the Treehouse enjoyed dinner at Seagrass. The staff at River Ventures was very helpful and friendly! Definitely recommend the Treehouse.

    Greg2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Can't recommend highly enough. Sheila is a wonderful host who was both helpful and respectful of our privacy. She and her husband have created a most welcoming place. The location was super for the activities we enjoy. Peaceful yet exciting. We saw a family of manatees swimming and playing right outside our door. Did I mention that Sheila is a charming person? It was just so comfortable to be a guest here!

    Janet2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • The accommodation is small but the location is just beautiful. Sheila allowed us to use the canoe and we did some really nice trips with it. Everything is there to cater for yourself if you don't always want to eat. We would go back to this property at any time.

    Kai2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Great location, loved sitting by the water and watching the boats

    Laurie2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Sheila is very friendly and helpful. Again we had a lovely time at Sheila's place. Sheila's home is placed in a wonderful area, with so much nature around. Manatees, birds, rays, turtles, different kind of fish and a lot of other animals around which we could enjoy right from hear nice garden. We used Sheila's canoe and kayak, which gave us a lot of nice adventures in this beautiful area. The house is situated right next to the river and close to Homosassa spring. The house is very functional and the shower is very good. All in all perfect for us, who would like to enjoy manatees and other life underwater.

    Inge2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Sheila was a wonderful host. The location was spectacular. It is just about a quarter of a mile to kayak to Homosassa Springs State Park. We saw so many manatees and lots of mom's with babies. Terrific birds sightings as well. Nice areas for hiking close by. Apartment was clean and comfy. No tv was a treat. We never missed it. Screen porch was lovely with a great view. Big windows in apt to see out in the living room. Sheila has lots of really good info in the apt and is available to advise and make suggestions. We hope to go back😊

    Linda2020-02-04T00:00:00Z

  • Our stay at Captain Traci's place was great. It was clean with plenty of room to stretch out. It is centrally located to many activities. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. As stated in other reviews, there are a few things that need to be repaired, but they don't interfere with the enjoyment of our stay.

    Debbi2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Very spacious, great back yard to grill and hang out in.

    Amy2019-11-30T00:00:00Z
  • Hubby & I just wanted to get away for a few days & recharge. We were able to do exactly that. Nice, quiet but with plenty to see & do nearby. Captain Traci was very responsive to my communications. We appreciated the fruit, danish, juice & ice that were waiting for us. Thank you for your hospitality!

    Shanon2019-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • This place is very comfortable and roomy. Captain Traci provides every thing you could possibly need. The home is an older mobile home that we found to be extremely clean and we felt right at home . We spent a lot of time on the screened in back porch. The moble has lots of room. The two bedrooms are at opposite ends so you have lots of privacy. The back yard has a privacy fence and there is a nice fishing dock at the end of the yard. You are at the end of a canal. We did catch a few fish so bring your fishing gear. There are several kayaks you can use if you want. You are right next door to the Old Mill pub that has pretty good food and a full bar with outside seating. You are really close to town and Homosassa Wildlife park. We never even turned on the TV. I hated to leave! We will definitely rebook next time we go to Homosassa.

    Kim2019-11-01T00:00:00Z
  • Captain Traci was awesome! She was very quick with responding and very helpful. We helped us find our way to the house on our boat. The place is great for the weekend and for scallop season. Though this year's a bust. But we still had a great time. The only thing that we complained about was the canal, going too and from the house. Its only great for smaller boats like flat boats or pontoons. We have 21"mako and on a low tide, boat was stirring up every single logs up to the surface. We did have the trim up almost on the way and it was just a pain in the butt. By the time we got back, the prop got tangled up by a rope and a giant stomp. Wish I could post a picture of it. It was funny. Thank you for everything!!

    J2019-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • Thank You Captain Traci for accommodating my family in our time of need during this storm that devastated the Bahamas and the Carolina's awaiting its wrath. We got blessed here on the East Coast of Florida but we all can learn from Captain Traci and all the host of the Open Homes AirBNB. Open your homes if you can and find a way to help those in the Bahamas who took the force of this storm heading for us. We need to be there for them now as they rebuild. God Bless You Captain Traci. Amen!!!!

  • We found an amazing B&B and made new friends. Tom and Jan are wonderful people, their home is beautiful, and the breakfasts were delicious. Ann and I recommend Mermaid’s Rest highly. It’s the best value we’ve found in our Airbnb travels.

    Larry2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • From the moment we arrived- exhausted from a long drive-Tom & Jan went out of their way to help us settle in, get refreshed, and enjoy our stay. Immaculately clean, very stylish, and perfectly located, the Mermaid's Rest Bed and Breakfast was a wonderful Airbnb experience. So many thoughtful extra touches: water and snacks in the room, local tips- from the hosts themselves as well as additional tips/suggestions neatly laid out in a binder, comfortable bed with extra pillows, and even a new toothbrush when my daughter couldn't find hers- along with genuinely lovely hosts- has me wishing I could rate extra stars! Homemade breakfast in the morning was delicious- and Jan went through all the trouble to surprise me with a beautiful homemade birthday cake (with candles!) on the morning of my 50th birthday! Fantastic experience- hope to book again in the future! :)

    Stacy2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Jan and Tom are people of incredible kindness! The breakfasts are exceptionally good. The room is clean and you have a lot of information for your stay. At the location, you just need to cross the road to access the Wildlife Refuge. A superb moment spent here that marked our trip. I recommend this place to you!

    Flavie2020-03-05T00:00:00Z

  • John is a great host. Very responsive and quick to accommodate the things that we needed. The house is full of cute things, and very thoughtful. My personal favorite is the emergency phone dry out bag with rice. My dog’s crate was put together already when we got there with a tub full of dog toys, towels, treats. He even gave us 20% discount to go to the wildlife park. The backyard is super big we were able to pull in our trailer with all our kayaks and boards. All in all great place.

    Daisy Lyn2019-10-14T00:00:00Z

    Eric2019-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • This place was so cute and super close to everything. It was my birthday and they left birthday balloons with two small bottles of wine and some homemade soaps as a gift. It made me feel special and was a great way to make the visit personal to me and my family. They even left treats and toys for our fur babies to enjoy. The place was very clean and all communications with John were very prompt. I would definitely suggest this place to anyone.

Also included are two fishing kayaks, bicycles, and a paddle boat that seats 5. For optional fun on the water, ask about availability on the cute Carolina skiff J14. It comes with an electric start 20hp outboard, bimini top, boarding ladder and seating for 4.
    Ours is a quiet waterfront neighborhood with only a few full time residents. Most of the homes are weekend get-aways and several are vacation rentals. If you need more than one house, let me know. I have another waterfront 2 bedroom home nearby and can put you touch with several other owners.
  • The Scallop Hut is a first rate home. You'll enjoy the hot tub as well as fishing off the dock. Terry also provides bicycles and kayaks. It is just a short drive/walk to the Freezer. I'll be back. Brad N Elizabethtown, KY.

  • Beautiful and clean house. Terry was very quick to respond when the hot tub wouldn't heat. The location was great for us a well. Would stay there again.

    Carol2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • Terry's place was even better than the pictures! There was plenty of space and the deck was amazing. Highly recommend!

    Lauren2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • Quiet location with large deck overlooking canal. Home has well stocked kitchen and large screen TV in living room. Nicely updated with a large swim spa-really has all the comforts of home in a charming part of Florida. Thank you for being a gracious host Terry.

    Kathleen2019-12-23T00:00:00Z
  • Terry's house is truly wonderful, spacious and comfortable. It is located right to Homosassa river. The moment we walked in, we felt like home. Kitchen is well equipped, big freezer, nice bedrooms with comfortable beds. We stayed for one week and enjoyed ourselves a lot. All of the necessities were provided. Terry is a kind and gracious host, he really has the best boat on the river. His tours are great. Nice neighborhood. We highly recommend the Scallop hut and hope to return some time :-)

    Franziska2019-12-03T00:00:00Z
  • We loved the scallop hut stay! It’s a great location in an old Florida location with lots of fun things to do for the whole family. Hands down, Terry has the best boat on the whole river. We highly suggest his river boat tour. We would definitely stay here again. Terry is a super host.

    Aimee2019-08-06T00:00:00Z
  • Thanks Terry

    Robert2019-07-27T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed 8 nights very comfortably. House was very clean and bright. There is a spa we use almost everyday after long day on boat, we all loved it. We don't find any problems in his house. Terry is an excellent host, he always response very quickly and very helpful. We want to built our longtime relationship with him as an annual regular guest. Thank you very much Terry.

    Tim2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • This was our second visit. My wife had a "girls retreat" here, they loved it and had a great time!

    Ted2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • We had six people in the house and were very comfortable. There were many amenities to enjoy the outdoors : a nice covered dock with rod holders and chairs, fishing gear, kayaks, yard games, charcoal grill, and a large deck. We saw wood storks, song birds, and heard a great horned owl while there. The kitchen is well stocked and the neighborhood is quiet. The owner was responsive when we had questions. I would definitely rent the house again.

    Therese2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • Great place if you like getting away from the city. It rained during our stay so we couldn't use the kayaks, but it cleared up in the evening for us to grill some steaks and eat around the fire. Awesome property, plenty of stuff to do. Would like to come back again and check out the area on a kayak. Thanks man🤙

    Garrett2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • We can't say enough about the trip we just took to Homosassa. We are two families with 9 total: 4 adults and 5 kids. The house was the perfect size! The kids had their own downstairs to spread out and play while the adults had the upstairs, deck and kitchen. Blaine had plenty of supplies provided and the house is decorated beautifully. The beds were so comfortable! We kayaked and fished off the dock and the kids played in the gorgeous yard. At night, we had bonfires and roasted s'mores while enjoying the weather. When we ventured out everything was so close. We swam with the manatees, of course, and explored Homosassa. We had a great dinner at Dan's Clam Shack but every other meal we cooked at 'home'. Blaine was a great host with super fast communication. I even messaged him on New Year's Eve looking for advice on the best bait to use off the back dock and he got back to me with the answer (shrimp!), almost instantly. Side note, my seven year old caught a large catfish the next day :) If you are looking for a great location with plenty to do, stay at Blaine's....it was the best!

    Katie2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • A hidden gem on the FL coast. Close to unique parks and cozy spot.

    Elizabeth2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • Great Airbnb near the center of Homosassa. Private land with fishing from dock. We loved the house and property.

    Enjoy our Private RV SITE on the head of the Homosassa Springs with full hookups, WiFi, dock & water access. Have your coffee while manatees swim by the dock, take a cool dip in the spring water, or toss a line & catch some dinner. The site is shaded with large oak & magnolia trees, perfect for having privacy to enjoy the outdoors. We provide a fire pit, table & chairs, & a large area mat for outside. We welcome guests with boats (check bridge height restrictions). **SITE ONLY RV NOT INCLUDED**
    Quiet private RV SITE located on Homosassa Springs. The site is shaded with large oak and magnolia trees. We provide a fire pit, table and chairs, and a large area mat for outside. It is common to see manatees and other wildlife in the area. The site offers access to a private dock on our residential property on the water where you can enjoy your coffee, fish, or launch your kayaks. We are less than one mile to the state park, Publix, and 2 miles to the public boat ramp. This is area is popular during summer months due to the cool refreshing water of the natural springs and the abundant scallop beds that provide recreation and harvest. Winter months our winter resident numbers increase as the manatees take refuge in the springs. Citrus county is the only place in the world where you can swim and touch manatees legally. We love to share our piece of paradise with visitors and to offer an authentic glimpse of old Florida coastal lifestyle.
    Homosassa is a quiet waterfront community that resonates old Florida lifestyle. From restaurants and fish camps on the water to local knowledgeable boat captains and unmatched river and gulf views, it truly is a special place.
  • A very nice spot for privacy with a single rig and crew, and the river access is wonderful. Their canal puts you right out into the quietest, prettiest part of the Homosassa river. Many people never see this headwater area due to their boats not fitting under the bridge (which is a great thing really). We certainly enjoyed our stay!

    Mike2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • Great location, it’s a little tight getting backed in, especially at night (our fault for getting there after dark). Alonda was very nice and came by to check on us. We fished off the dock w the kids, didn’t utilize the kayaks because it was cold and we ran out of time. Great weekend getaway, the area is quiet and very pretty.

    Dana2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • What a great private RV site. Location is great for kayaking and is close to the local attractions. Host is very accommodating. What a great stay! We will be back.

    Janice2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • We had an amazing week. Perfect for us. Manatee encounters everyday. Already looking forward to next visit. Just can't say enough good things about this place!

    James2019-12-21T00:00:00Z
  • Site was perfect for our RV, easy access to river and close to spring head near park , lots of manatees out this time of year, We enjoyed paddle boarding/kayaking both mornings, hope to come again soon.

    Andrew2019-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay the hosts were very accommodating. Looking forward to coming back for another stay.

    Robert2019-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • This place is gorgeous!! Very stylish and high end finishes and the location is stellar! We tied our pontoon up to the dock and went swimming right out back. We will definitely come back!

    Relaxing water view retreat. Our River House is located in a nature's paradise, just 5 minutes from enjoying everything that Homosassa has to offer. Canoes are on property so you can explore the unobserved beauty of the river.
    Every room has been completely remodeled. We renovated the kitchen, bathroom all the floors, living room and bedrooms. We have decorated to give you a relaxing feeling the moment you walk into our Riverhouse. The kitchen is fully equipped with all the amenities and new appliances. Ready for anyone who loves to cook. First bedroom has a king bed and TV. Second bedroom has a Queen size bed.. The living room has a flat screen TV, with basic cable and chromecast available for use. There is an electric fireplace. Internet/Wi-Fi available. There is a screened in area on the deck with table and chairs to enjoy the peaceful view without the bugs. Propane grill is available for use.
    The River House is located just minutes away from Old Homosassa, the historic Yulee Sugar Mill Ruins( built in 1864 ), Homosassa Spring State Wildlife Park, River Haven Marina (Boat Rentals) Public Boat Ramps, Crystal River and many restaurants and pubs to choice from like: The Freezer, Shelly's Seafood Market, Wild Sassa Restaurant, The Shed, and the Riverside Resort. Lots of stores just 2 minutes from the cottage: grocery stores, pharmacies, department stores and more.
  • We absolutely loved our visit to the River House! It's in a great neighborhood. Peaceful and quite. We felt very relaxed and at home. There is a Publix grocery store within minutes of the house, and Marisol also added quite a few extra amenities to help make our stay easy. We went out early for a morning manatee swim and then came back to enjoy an afternoon canoe trip! Would definitely stay here again!

    Tiffany2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely place to stay. The house was sparkling clean and you couldn’t beat the location. My boyfriend and I loved spending time on the dock, taking out the canoe, and had a campfire our last night. It’s a special spot and I highly recommend this place.

    Anne2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • We were very pleased with this spotless, updated rancher with a wonderful large screened-in porch, clean gas grill, and canoe. The kitchen was well lit and well equipped. We loved canoeing in the canals and waterways which were thru "wild", undeveloped land. There were many routes to explore and many water birds to observe. We were there for 4 weeks in Jan/Feb and rarely met anyone while canoeing. My husband was happy to fish from the canoe or at the canal at the house and behind the house. The convenience was unexpected and a huge plus. At the house we saw a variety of songbirds, pileated woodpeckers, and were treated to 5 wandering peacocks. Besides the many canoe trips, we golfed, saw the manatees, and walked thru various state parks. Very relaxing for two retired people. Marisol was quick to respond to questions. The location is convenient to grocery stores, restaurants, sights and activities. I very highly recommend this place!

    Billie2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • This truely is the perfect natures get away. Situated in a perfect spot on a creek we felt close to the countryside. We borrowed the canoes and enjoyed paddling up the river. The house is perfect and has a covered veranda to keep the mosquitos away. The house itself is very well equipped with all that is required to cook or BBQ. The highlight of our stay was swimming with manatees. If we were returning to the area we would certainly return here.

    Paul2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • Great place! Awesome location and loved canoeing right from the dock in the back. So nice to have the canoe available for us to use. Electric fireplace was a nice touch.

    Marilynn2019-11-26T00:00:00Z
  • Exceptionally clean house, fabulously comfortable beds with adorable decor. Very close to everything! Screened in porch was a wonderful bonus! Wish we could have stayed longer.

    Misty2019-11-08T00:00:00Z
  • The house is great! We were specifically looking for a house without a lot of stairs for my father with mobility issues. This was perfect for that. It was nice that the two bedrooms are in opposite ends of the house. The screened in porch is great. AC works wonderfully. The kitchen had everything we needed and there’s a big grill out back. The house was spotless and everything is new. Everything was just as the listing stated. I highly recommend it. The location is great. There was so much wild life everywhere in Homosassa- free roaming peacocks, lizards, giant colorful crickets, lil piggies (in another neighborhood), turkey vultures, a bald eagle, ibis, and we spotted a cute lil gator in the canal, just behind the house. We never saw him come out of the water. We also loved visiting Ellie Schiller Park and Weeki Wachee!

    Dana2019-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • Marisol House was exactly as shown on the web-site, we spent most of the evenings on the large screened porch. It was enjoyable Kayaking thru the canal with the wildlife. The location of the house was perfect.

    We use a dehumidifier and HEPA air cleaner for our guests health, safety, and comfort. We sanitize and disinfect everthing down to the door knobs. Free parking on the property. We have a lovely, relaxing 1 bdrm. 1 bath cottage on 5 acres. Enjoy shooting pool and playing darts at our Tiki bar! We offer a continental breakfast to start your day! We stream Netflix, Hulu, and Prime Video. We are close to grocery stores, restaurants, state parks, scalloping, and swimming with the Manatees.
    The cottage that you will be staying in is detached from the main house (It sits about 75 ft from the main house). It has its own private bath with its own 30 gal hot water heater. The fenced yard where the cottage sits is very secluded, private, and quiet with 15 ft tall hedges. A short aside: We strive for the utmost health and comfort for our guests. We do this by cleaning the whole room including the bathroom. The bathroom is sanitized with an anti-bacterial cleaner after every guest checks out.T he sheets and pillowcases are changed after every guest checks out. We run a dehumidifier when the room is not being used (the dehumidifier keeps the air in the room dry so mold, fungus, or a musty smell will not develop). We do the same in the guest house as well. We are not a hotel be we run our B'n"B like a hotel. We are passionate about what we do and how we do it. Please, if you have any complaints, comments, or suggestions, do not hesitate to let us know. We are available all the time. If there is an issue we need to hear about, let us know so we can remedy the situation immediately. We want to have the opportunity to fix the issue rather than hear about it in a review. We want to make your stay with us as pleasing and comfortable. In consideration for future guests, we cannot accommodate guests with dogs. This is due to the effort in completely cleaning any evidence of their stay.
    We are 2.6 miles from Walmart,and gas stations . Many restaurants are also close by. The Homosassa wildlife park is also within 5 miles away. This is a rural area. The typical lot size on our street is five to ten acres (a handful are less though). Due to the ruralness of the area, our property is very private and quiet. The street side of our property is lined with tall hedges for even more privacy. Another feature of being in a rural location is crime is low to non-exsistent.
  • Our stay was incredibly pleasant! The guest house theme is carried out in every possible detail making the room pleasant as well as comfortable. The "extra touches evidence how much pride and care goes into Barbara's endeavor. Thank you, again!

Barbara was an amazing host and the cottage was sparkling clean, awesome decorations, and great amenities. In the morning Barbara gave me some carrots so I could feed her beautiful horses! This place has amazing value for the price! We plan to go back and stay again. Thank you Barbara!

  • I had the most relaxing time at Krisanne's! She was a very warm and welcoming host, and I felt right at home. She offered some great suggestions for things to do in the area, such as kayaking the Chassahowitzka River - which was an absolute dream. Cannot recommend this place enough. Truly a haven in Homosassa!

    Linda2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • Krisanne was my first Airbnb. My experience was so outstanding, I don't think I'll stay in a hotel ever again. The bedroom and bath were spotless, cleaner that many of the hotels/motels I've stayed in many times in this area. Plus it was totally quiet--no inconsiderate, noisy party-goers coming back at 2:00 a.m. stumbling down the hall, trying to find their room. Krisanne was also a great communicator before my getting there, so I knew exactly what to expect. It was perfect in every way.

    Chuck2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Krisanne's accommodation is excellent and Krisanne is a wonderful host. We enjoyed our stay from the first minute. She gave good advice, where we can see manatee's and answered all our questions. The little dog's, Little Beth and Gracy are so lovely and sweet. If you intend to go in the area of Crystal River, don't miss this opportunity to stay here. Thank you dear Krisanne for the great time in your house.

    Angela2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • This place was clean and quiet. The bed was comfortable and we really enjoyed our stay. Great place for a few nights seeing the sights in Crystal River. Krisanne was a wonderful host and her two pups are very friendly if you want to meet them. She was willing to share her fridge and freezer space with us for our food and freeze packs which was super nice! We would stay here again.

    Mike2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Kris was very accommodating to our late arrival due to weather and traffic and she went out of her way to make us feel welcomed and at home as well as giving great insight to the area. Her place is very clean and the house is cozy. We brought our dog and Kris treated him as one of her own. Her two dogs are also very friendly and adorable. We would highly recommend staying here while exploring the Manatee adventures.

    Nicole2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • I really loved my stay here. Krisanne was so kind and genuinely put a lot of effort into being an accommodating host with lots of hospitality. The location is perfect and the check in process was very smooth; communication was great. You get your own little room, bathroom, and meshed in patio that you can open up and interact with the host or you can close and be private. Everything was decorated so nicely and plenty of amenities were provided. I feel Krisanne went above and beyond as a host and I highly recommend this place to anyone looking for lodging in the area!

    Bryan2020-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • This place is the best! Exceeded expectations in many ways. Krisanne is a great host, and her home is cozy. Love the backyard, too - look out for gopher tortoises! Would recommend in a heartbeat.

    Kendra2020-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • Peaceful and easy location. Krisanne is kind and helpful and I definitely recommend staying here.

  • Location,Location,Location! We brought our young grandsons here for a few days and had a blast! Wonderful furnished kitchen, a great place for families. Loved watching the birds and kayaking to the springs. There is a creek literally in the back yard that allowed us to kayak to the river and all the way back to the springs. Actually kayaked with Manatees! Don’t miss walking to MacRaes landing for a beer and to watch the fisherman come in with the days catch. Pretty fun place.

  • Barbara is a pretty amazing host! First time I’ve stayed in an Airbnb that shared common areas and I was honestly apprehensive about it. That disappeared within a few minutes of arriving. Super clean and comfortable location to stay! Worked perfectly for all myself and my son’s needs. Get there early enough and you may be lucky to give the horses a few cookies! If in need a place to stay before I complete my move to the area, I know who I’ll be checking with first !

  • Amazing place to stay

    Hillary2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place . Great touches . The deck is a great place . Close to everything

    Ben2019-08-11T00:00:00Z
  • Always a pleasure staying here look forward to next year

    Ryan2019-07-21T00:00:00Z
  • The Owner, Nadeene, was great to work with. This place is truly unique. Her artistic and thoughtful touches make this place much more amazing than the pictures can relate. Booking again for next year.

    Gary2019-07-13T00:00:00Z
  • We had such a great stay at The Upper Deck. We felt excited as we drove up to the house as it is the most fun looking place in the neighborhood. We felt welcomed and cared for from the first steps into the house, from the personal welcome sign for our family, to fresh flowers on the table. There were lots of hints written out and left around the house to instruct us on how to live comfortably and hassle free in the space. She left lots of great info on fun things to do in the area. There were lots of extra amenities included on the property from kayaks and paddle board to sand toys and art supplies. Nadeene was a great hostess and was very responsive with any extra needs we had. I highly recommend this property for a fun vacation getaway!

    Sheri2019-04-07T00:00:00Z
  • This place is every bit as wonderful as the photos suggest. It’s so comfortable with no detail left out. It has all those little things that make a house a home. It was so comfortable that it was hard to leave each morning to paddle the local rivers. The beds were very comfortable, there were plenty of towels and all kinds of little creature comforts. The owner was kind and available, although we didn’t need anything because she had already left details about anything we may ask. There were so many great areas to sit and enjoy the wonderful weather. I have no problems giving this house a 5 star review. It was honestly perfect.

    Jenny2019-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place to stay, in the heart of the action. Enjoyed waking up and kayaking every morning with the manatees!!!!

    Hillary2019-01-06T00:00:00Z

  • We enjoyed a great month at Tina and Mo's Cracker Cottage! A wonderful, quiet location yet just a short walk to the water! Really enjoyed the screen porch and cottage decor. We found many great places in the area to explore, a great time of year to see many manatees!

    Glen2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Great place!

    Chris2020-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • Charming cottage in the perfect location! The mattresses were so comfortable! Plenty of linens for a long stay. We really enjoyed the screen porch and porch swing! The crockpot and electric griddle in the kitchen were so helpful for cooking meals in. We wish we had time to make use of the brewery tokens, but we will definitely be back! Definitely recommend if you’re looking for somewhere to stay in the area!

    Emily2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • The Coastal Cracker Cottage is very charming and well appointed. Maurice and Tina are such thoughtful and responsive hosts and we enjoyed the area very much. We had a family of four adults (my husband and me plus our two grown sons) and it was quite comfortable for us. We especially enjoyed the porch and very well equipped kitchen. The location is walking distance to some old time Florida restaurants on the water and the town is very friendly and laid back.

    Kathryn2019-12-26T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely spectacular location and great house. Will be staying again in the near future. Thanks

    Cory2019-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • The Cracker Cottage took us by surpise. It was tastefully decorated and the beds were especially comfortable. We had everything we needed for our stay. Best part though was the location, 30 seconds to the river and some great bars. The golf cart allowed us to see Homosassa from a different view point.

    Experience the beauty of Homosassa when you stay at this 3-bed, 2-bath vacation rental cabin. Nestled along the shores of Mason Creek, this hidden gem boasts a prime waterfront location, sleeping for 6 and all the essential comforts of home. Spend your stay relaxing in the backyard or fishing off the dock, and your evenings soaking in the hot tub! Your stay isn't complete without seeing the manatees! *From Oct 15 - April 15 one traveler per booking is eligible for a free swim with the manatees!*
    Master Bedroom: Queen Bed | Bedroom 2: Queen Bed | Bedroom 3: 2 Twin Beds Step inside and you’ll immediately be taken aback by the cathedral ceilings and rustic log walls that mark the open living area. Kick off your shoes and unwind on the plush sofa while you watch your favorite show on the flat-screen Smart TV or start up a game of checkers on the game table. Pull up a stool to the live edge breakfast bar and watch the chef in your group cook up a delectable meal in the fully equipped kitchen. In the morning you can wake up with complementary coffee, tea or hot cider from the Keurig machine. Recently updated, the kitchen features all new stainless steel appliances and sleek white cabinetry. Light the candles or start a fire in the stone wood-burning fireplace and gather around the wood table set for 8 to enjoy dinner with the whole family. The backyard is primed for entertaining, featuring an 8-person hot tub with Tiki torches, lounge chairs, gas grill, a fire pit and a dock. Lay out under the sun during the day, and at night, settle into the adirondack chairs set around the fire pit for s’mores. When the fickle Florida weather rolls in, retreat to the screened-in porch, where you’ll find unique rocking chairs and porch dining for your group to spread out. When night falls, rest your head in one of 3 spacious bedrooms. All 3 rooms are tastefully decorated with eclectic wall art and charming furnishings. The master bedroom boasts a queen-sized bed and private en-suite bathroom with a walk-in shower. In the second bedroom, you’ll find another queen bed, while the third bedroom includes 2 twin beds and a flat-screen TV.
    Homosassa, known as “Florida’s Nature Coast,” is an outdoor enthusiast's paradise with plenty of opportunities to experience the beauty of nature. Kayaking with wild manatees in the waterways behind the property is a must, along with snorkeling for scallops during scallop season. For an even closer encounter with the manatees, head to the Homosassa Springs, the only place in the U.S. where it’s legal to swim with these majestic sea creatures. Mingle with these gentle giants while you splash around in the crystal clear waters that maintain 70 degree temperatures year-round! From Oct 15th- April 15th, one traveler per reservation can have a free swim with the manatees tour. They will need to contact Captain Donny at Airtank Divers. Only one free tour per group, so get ready to draw straws! Check out the native wildlife when you visit Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park, which is also home to Lu, a hippopotamus that has called the park home for the last 57 years. The facility also offers educational programs and an underwater viewing fishbowl. Let off some steam at the end of your day of fishing for the 'silver king fish' by stopping by local tiki bars, which include The Shed, The Freezer, Seagrass and the Monkey Bar. You can also do a little shopping in town at some of our artisan shops and snag a souvenir to show friends and family when you get home. Be sure to stop by the Yulee Sugar Mill Ruins, a 5,100-acre sugar plantation that offers a unique look into the area’s rich history.
  • Very pleasant house in a great spot.

    George2019-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • This is a fantastic property, stylishly decorated with really comfy beds and thick hotel quality linens - so it felt a bit special and we felt at home immediately. Gina and her husband couldn’t have been more welcoming when we arrived and we thoroughly enjoyed the hot tub, fire pit, hammock and kayaking from the jetty at the back of the house, as well as dinners both at the main dining table and on the midge-free veranda overlooking the canal. It was the ideal location for exploring Homosassa, including the wildlife park and the Crystal River area. Thanks so much - we are already recommending it and hoping to return.

    Are you looking for a relaxing weekend away? This spot has it all! Tucked under Nature Coast's majestic live oak trees, this tiny barn is as relaxing as it comes. Wake up in the morning and open the patio doors to hear the birds singing and greet the cows while enjoying a hot cup of coffee in an adirondack chair. Enjoy the evenings with a bonfire and cook out using our outdoor kitchenette. Our fully fenced yard allows your fuzzy friend to roam free while you relax!
    Our tiny barn offers an outdoor kitchenette, shower and composting toilet. The tiny barn is not off-grid, but we strive to be eco-friendly by using 2nd hand building materials, offering natural toiletries, and minimizing on waste. The tiny barn features a Queen mattress upstairs in the loft and a double futon downstairs that can be used as a couch to watch movies. We have limited connectivity at our property, so we provide a hard drive loaded with a wide array of movies for when you need a little inside down time. Instead of TV, we offer a bonfire pit, corn hole and assorted other games. Our super friendly lab puppy, Grizzly, will be happy to entertain your fuzzy friend while visiting! But don't worry, he goes to work with us so he won't be here causing mischief without our supervision! Our yard is fully fenced, so bring your fuzzy friend with you, but please be sure to close the gate behind you!
    Citrus County is full of fun things to do including exploring the downtown shops, floating with manatees, fishing, kayaking or just relaxing in the sunshine.
  • JJ and Erin were great hosts and their tiny barn was such a joy to stay at! JJ was there when we arrived to help us check in and show us around. The barn had everything we needed to be more than comfortable and able to relax and enjoy a peaceful getaway. Grizzly and Captain (their two dogs) were around in their yard and were such a joy to have around and play with during our stay. Their place was filled with wonderful small touches such as the campfire, cornhole, hammock, and an abundance of movies, games, extra blankets, and snacks! JJ was always available when I needed help setting up the grill and campfire. He also gave me great suggestions as to fun things to do in the area. We will definitely be coming back one day.

    Theresa2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • There is no way to write all the great things we experienced during our stay. The bed was cozy, everything was easy to find, it’s dog friendly (and there are friendly dogs). I can’t wait to visit again.

    Kelly2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • I can’t even tell you all how exceptional this place was. First of all it was adorable, a lot of special touches, the inside decor was amazing, The cleanliness was impeccable, the fire pit was GREAT...they had a Swivel grate that adapts to the fire pit so you can cook on it! They offered free wood to the guests which was very nice! The two dogs they have are wonderful, they are very friendly and loving. The barn looks over a beautiful farm! The bed was super comfortable. Overall it was such an amazing time. Thank you so much JJ, Erin, grizzley, and captain, you created special memories for us and without your hospitality we wouldn’t have that

    Lisa2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • This home was beautiful and clean. The host responded quickly to some inquiries we had and overall stay was fantastic! Would recommend! P.S. if you love dogs, you will love this stay :)

    Mary2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • A wonderful tiny home retreat. Hammock and fire pit with wood ready to go. Great outdoor shower and bathroom. Plenty of room for our whole family.

    Katherine2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • JJ and Erin were fabulous hosts, quick with communication and had good recommendations for local places/things to do. The cabin was clean, well stocked with anything and everything I needed and in a convenient location. Also the dogs were very friendly.

    Callie2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • This place is so adorable! The location is great, JJ was so friendly to talk to! We love their dogs, Captain and Grizzly! They were also great hosts. Plus, to find some place that is pet friendly is great! Because when you have pets, you know how hard it is to travel with them! Hope to come back someday!!

    Sheena2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Erin and JJ have thought of every little detail. From the location, to the amenities both in and around the house. It’s a perfect pet friendly place to stay when in the Crystal River area!

    The loft is newly renovated bedroom space upstairs from our wedding barn. Overlooks our 40 acre horse farm for an absolutely amazing view. Equipped with queen bed, mini fridge, microwave, coffee pot and tv. Private half bath is downstairs. The shower is located in our main horse barn a short distance away. It is not your typical barn bath. Fully renovated with nice tile and finishes and a custom Jack Daniels whiskey barrel sink. Accessing the loft requires ability to climb stairs.
  • Beautiful! I wish we were able to arrive sooner to enjoy walking around the grounds a bit more before dark because it was so peaceful and a nice break from the hustle and bustle of city living. The loft was nice, clean, and well furnished. Lisa was welcoming and showed us around and gave a background on her farm as well which was very thoughtful.

    Jacquelyn2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • The Loft is such a peaceful and amazing space. The decorations are gorgeous, and you can't beat the view overlooking the horse pastures. Lisa is also great at communication, and answered all of my questions in a timely manner. Thank you Lisa!

    Matthew2020-02-29T00:00:00Z

  • The absolute best stop of our trip! Maggie and Ric are incredibly nice, helpful people who read every wish from your lips. We felt very comfortable and we didn't miss anything. The two consider all the details from front to back, so you don't have to worry about anything anymore! The house is super clean and big and has a nice, large pool in the garden. The bedroom was super comfortably furnished and we were able to sleep well and peacefully .. oh and the breakfast was varied, balanced and really delicious. I can't think of anything negative. Heartily recommend the accommodation!

    Josi2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • Maggie and Ric were outstanding! Their house is clean, beautiful, and the rooms are perfect for a nice getaway! They give you privacy and make sure everything is accommodating to you! They also are up for conversation and make you feel so welcomed. They go above and beyond to make your stay enjoyable, and it was great having an amazing vacation while also getting to know these two amazing people and their dog. We will miss them and refer their place to anyone!

    Mary2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Everything was Perfect, Maggie and Ric really put a lot of thought into every decision they make with Hosting . They are more than super host. You can ask them anything about the area and they know it. Their home is spotless! You can eat off of the floors. If you want to converse while they are there they you will feel comfortable and right at home. They also give you all the privacy you need. Tremendous Value booking with them. If you are ever in the area I suggest taking advantage of it. Thanks again Mag n Ric ! Will be returning sooner than later!

    Luis2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Maggie & Ric have a beautiful home and the accommodations were superb. Their home is super comfy and spotless! I only was able to stay one night but was given loads of info on the area. Very helpful. I’m going to have to return next year so I can swim with the manatee. The airboat charter you suggested was awesome! Had a blast. My best Airb&b stay yet!

  • Great hospitality and interaction. Their home was very warm and inviting, very neat and clean. Only draw back is that you will share a bath if both rooms are rented but Maggie does a great job handling that.

  • If I could give a place 100 stars this would be the place. So generous, perfect hosts, very knowledgeable, great tips on events, food, just everything. We had a great stay, made us feel very at home and comfortable, and made sure we were equipped with lots of information on things to do in the area. I loved the little notes and the welcome card. Just a perfect place to stay. Thank you Maggie and Ric for making our first trip to Florida fantastic! Would definitely visit Florida again.

    Kiasha2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent hosts! Beautiful home. Maggie and Ric took the time to explain things to us as we are still fairly new at this. Will stay again. Thanks Maggie & Ric

    You will be sharing a our beautifully decorated yet casual feeling home. Your area is like a mini apartment with two bedrooms and 1.5 baths are your private areas. We will share the rest of the 2400 sq ft home. Our bedroom is on the other side of the home so you will have lots of privacy. We are on a canal in a great neighborhood. We're on a canal leading out to the Homosassa River. There is a dock for parking your boat and parking for your trailer.
    We have kayaks with life jackets and snorkel gear for your use. A dock if you have a boat. Screened in patio if you just want to sit and relax out of the heat. Fire pit to roast marshmallows, and sit around to enjoy the evening. You can watch the manatee swim by. We even get dolphins some times.
    Homosassa Wild Life park is about a five minute walk or kayak ride from here. Where you can view the manatee year round. During the winter you can usually see manatee and sometimes dolphin in the canal behind our home.
  • We had a great experience with Joy and Joe. Highly recommend!

    Julie2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • This place has everything you could possibly want: easy access to the springs, a private entrance, a comfortable bed, and lots of character. We hope to stay again in the future!

    Rachel2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • I cannot day enough nice words about our stay at your home! The house was pristine and the amenities were absolutely perfect. We loved being able to launch the kayaks and see manatees in less than 10 minutes. Thank you for making our trip easy and special!

    Kristin2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful time at their lovely home right on the river. We kayaked in comfy kayaks, swam with the manatees... amazing experience! , enjoyed a warm fire in their fire pit and just had such a relaxing time. Karen and Jason were so helpful and friendly, they went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. We would highly recommend a visit as they are super hosts with a beautiful home! We want to come back!

    George2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • My friend and I stayed at Joy’s for 5 days and it was absolutely incredible. I really wanted to see the manatees so we came down in the winter (mid/late Jan). The house is in perfect location. We kayaked to the spring every morning to see the manatees. One day we even saw them swam by the place when we are out by the fire pit. We also took the boat ride out and saw many animals. Joy and Joe made our stay like we are at home. We share meals and hang out in the morning. I would come back and I would recommend this place to anyone.

    Pananya2020-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome experience staying with Joy and Joe. Perfect location and wonderful hosts. 5 + Stars for sure. We would definitely consider a return visit and highly recommend a stay with these hosts!

    Susan2020-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • Best hosts in town! We had a great time at Joy and Joe's! It was a shame that we only booked one night but we got to go on a trip with both Joy and Joe in their boat and went for a short kajak tour in the canals just by the house. We would love to come back if ever around again.

    Mårten2020-01-14T00:00:00Z

    We use a dehumidifier and HEPA air cleaner for our guests health, safety, and comfort. There is ample space to park your boat, we are 15 minutes from a public boat ramp. This beautiful large Master Suite is part of a 4 bedroom manufactured home (our guesthouse) that has undergone refurbishment. This particular room has it's own private bath as well as it's own living room just outside the room. There is also a sitting area in the room.
    We are situated in a rural area of Homosassa, Florida. We are very close to shopping, restaurants, Manatee tours, Kayaking, Canoeing, Scalloping, and the Wild Life Park. Please, if you have any complaints, comments, or suggestions, do not hesitate to let us know. We are available all the time. If there is an issue we need to hear about, let us know so we can remedy the situation immediately. We want to have the opportunity to fix the issue rather than hear about it in a review. We want to make your stay with us as comfortable as possible.
    We are 2.6 miles from Walmart,and gas stations . Many restaurants are also close by. The Homosassa wildlife park is also within 5 miles away. This is a rural area. The typical lot size on our street is five to ten acres (a handful are less though). Due to the ruralness of the area, our property is very private and quiet. The street side of our property is lined with tall hedges for even more privacy. Another feature of being in a rural location is crime is low to non-exsistent.
  • You felt like you were in the country. Calm and far away from stress. Great room and Barbara's homemade cookies ... fantastic!

    Simone2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Everything was good! Nice place and near to Three Sister Springs. Thanks for hosting us. We can recommend this nice airbnb.

    Sinah Celine2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Provided snacks, breakfast stuff, silverware, dishes and coffee. The bathroom had a bidet, moist towelettes, the good toilet paper and even a tooth brush. The host puts in alot of effort and ot was very much appreciated.

    Jenna2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Barbara and Dan are awesome hosts. From the very beginning we felt like at home. Our room (as the whole place) was sparkling clean, fresh and stylish. Pineapples ruled! Bathroom and kitchen were full of useful stuff for every traveller. I highly recommend staying at this place.

    Michal2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Clean and cozy room with private bathroom. I really appreciate their hospitality

    Ayako2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Barbara and Dan were very good hosts who made us feel like welcome guests. We enjoyed meeting new people during our stay from around the globe!

    Dan2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • A wonderful quiet location with two great hosts, Barbara and Dan. Sitting on the deck in the morning or evening was so enjoyable to start the day or unwind at the end of the day. So many restaurants an easy drive away and the accommodations were extra special. The kitchen was ready every day to prepare our breakfast and supplied with a wide variety of breakfast items. We found no negatives to mention during our 5 nights. We certainly would stay again as well as recommend this AirBnB to all our friends.

  • Even if we stay one night at Mary's house and didn't have time to really enjoy the garden, our stay was really good and we really recommend this place to stay at Crystal River. Mary and her husband were really nice from the very first moment we arrive until we left. neighborhood is very quiet and 5 minutes by car from the stores or the springs

    Victor2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • Great place. She thought of everything!

    Sherry2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Mary Cat’s place was perfect. The location was great and the area was very beautiful. Doug was very helpful when we arrived and even gave us a great tip about where to get dinner. The room comes with everything you could possibly need and the porch is so nice to have. The room, porch and bathroom were spotless. The private entrance is the real selling point we appreciated the privacy and having our own drive. If we return we would absolutely stay there again.

    Emma2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Super close to all the manatee and scallop tours. Very clean, lots of great snacks and coffees, highly recommend!

    James2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Great place. Was met by owner and showed in. There were so many thoughtful touches including toiletries, water, coffee, and snacks. Loved the little private patio. No TV, but great internet and a good chance to read my book.

    Christine2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • That was the best AirBnb stay for the last years. Everything in the room and the house generally is made with passion to the details. It's cozy and full of different stuff that makes your stay comfortable and unforgettable. You have all necessary amenities for breakfast (kettle, drip coffee maker, bowls, cutlery) including yogurts, pastries, snacks. Mary Cat and her husband Doug are openminded and hospitable hosts. We went to Crystal River to find manatees but found much more - the feeling of being long-awaiting guests. So sad that we stayed here for one night only. Wish to visit this lovely couple and their cats again one day. Highly recommended.

    Crystal River, FL, United States

    Charming, newly renovated, 3-bedroom home nestled on a quiet canal just 250 feet from a crystal clear, spring-fed tributary that flows into the Homosassa River. The river opens into a small lake, accessible by our canoe or kayak, with the chance of manatee sightings almost guaranteed during manatee season. Regarding bringing your own boat. Please look at the photos of the bridge to go under to get to the main river. If you can put your top down you can probably get under the bridge.
    Our location is unique because we are situated only yards from the water, where the spring head of several different springs boil and flow into the River just below another spring in Homosassa Springs State Park. You can boat or Kayak to the Gulf from here. The water is spring clear yet to be contaminated by silt and algae that discolors the water further downstream. The River before the bridge is deep enough to navigate but shallow enough stand and cool off in the 72 degree water. Note: That the bridge to open water is high enough to accommodate boats without Tee Tops or retractable Bimini Tops. I have to put the top down on my pontoon in order to get under "The Spring" bridge which goes under Fishbone Road.
    This house is in a quiet neighbor on a short paved road that dead ends where the canal joins the the spring fed river. It is walking distance (5 minutes) from Homosassa State Park where you can watch the feeding of the manatee and see the wildlife preserve.
  • This House was amazing!!! We took the kayaks out every single day we were there and we saw manatees every time! The house itself is absolutely beautiful whether it be the comfortable bedrooms, the nice spacious living room, the game room, and especially the fire pit outside! Every time I had a question I had a quick response! I would recommend this house to anyone!

    Noah2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay here! The house was spacious, relaxing, great views and wildlife, lots of amenities, and ideal location. We especially appreciated the kayaks, which we used daily to visit the manatees just a short paddle to the area next to the Homosassa Springs Wildlife Park. We saw >50 manatees each day feeding and resting there, and also a couple of them that swam right in front of the house. We also enjoyed snorkeling out to the manatees springs and viewing them up close, as well as the abundant variety of fishes we could see along the river. Harry was a wonderful host, and very responsive when we had questions. Thanks for a great vacation!

    Carol2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • We had a fantastic time and absolutely loved the house. The beds were incredibly comfortable and the canal was super relaxing. My mom and kids spent alot of time in the rocking chairs in the evening. Both my boys enjoyed the arcade and air hockey. We were able to take the kayaks out and saw 1 manatee. Everything was clean and well stocked with everything we needed. This house allowed plenty space to get away from each other when needed and great spaces to bond in as well.

    Amanda2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Great house and location. Everything was top notch.

    Teri2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful home, very clean and spacious. Right on a canal where you can watch manatees swim by. Perfect location - a fisherman's dream. Very close to the Homosassa River for kayaking and fishing. And we used the fire pit each night. Comfortable, quiet area with very nice neighbors.

    Kris2020-01-30T00:00:00Z
  • This is a wonderful home in a great location. The nearest grocery is only minutes away. There's a fantastic wildlife park even closer than that. We saw manatees on multiple occasions at nearby springs. We also saw a wide variety of birds at state parks and wildlife refuges in the area. I highly recommend the River House.

    Janet2020-01-09T00:00:00Z
  • We loved staying at Harry's river home. In the morning we went kayaking to see the manatees and enjoyed hanging out around the camp fire in the evening. We also had fun playing the giant Jenga and the old school video game console. My wife loves Donkey Kong. His place was everything we had hoped for and more.

    Justin2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • This place is amazing! The location of Harry’s place it awesome! We were so close to everything, but it was still quite and peaceful. We took an airboat tour and it was the highlight of our trip!! Ozella Boat tour! Thanks for sharing your beautiful home with us. We will be back soon.

  • We had one of the best vacations ever staying with Polly. Her immense kindness, hospitality, and love for life are second to none and matched only by her amazing cinnamon muffin recipe!! Booking with her is what made our trip go from good to great and we can’t praise her highly enough. Truly felt like part of the family and we are so grateful we had the opportunity to get to know her & her family. Great stay for anyone looking for a relaxing vacation with genuine company.

    McKenzie2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • This was a wonderful stay. The host & hostess really do everything to make you feel at home. And she succeeded. Very nice and super cozy! Nice location near many state parks.

    Soraya2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Staying at Polly‘s place just makes you feel at home away from home. She took great care of all of your needs, had good advises for us (telling us which company to choose for Manatee swimming in Crystal River) provided extra towels, coffee and muffins in the morning. And she even invited us to have breakfast with her son and her grandkids because it was Sunday morning. And it was really tasty. Just like your mom would do it. And on top. You can pet a lama, a hedgehog, there is dogs, a pig and lots of chicken, which will provide fresh eggs for you. Thank you Polly for a great stay at your place. Would always love to come back and are a bit sad, we just stayed one night. <3

    Tobi2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Pollys home was awesome. They live in a quiet neighborhood but it takes you just a few minutes to go to Crystal River where you can see some manatees. We loved their animals: a horse, a pig, chickens, a Lama and three dogs. Polly made us muffins in the Morning and we also spend the evening together. So we felt like beeing part of the familiy! We would definitly come back!

    Marc & Luise2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Polly and her husband was an excellent host! She went above and beyond our expectations. It was more than we could have hoped for. We would absolutely return again!

    Adam2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Polly's home was an extraordinarily cozy and relaxing get away from everyday life that I would highly recommend. From how clean the room and restroom were to how respectful her and her husband were, she really helped make our trip out to Homosassa a wonderful memory. Polly was attentive to our needs and made great recommendations about where to visit and eat. All of her animals were an added bonus to the experience, especially the Great Danes. I can't wait to revisit Polly on a future trip.

    Lauren2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • First off Polly and J are AMAZING people! Our experience was awesome in so many ways. Their home is inviting, extremely clean and tidy. They made us feel like part of the family. The animals are so much fun to be around and very well cared for. It was very hard to leave from such a wonderful and loving home and can't wait to return. We are planning a trip back to the area this summer just to visit them and of course will be staying here again. There aren't enough stars to truly rate our experience with Polly and J. Thanks again for your amazing hospitality, you guys are the best!!! Love, Alexandra and John Ashley

    Brice2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • This place is amazing! If you’re looking for a fun mini-adventure this is your place! Polly and her husband hosts many guests in their house, but give you the attention and hospitality of a 5-star hotel. We enjoyed our room, private bath, the fire in the backyard, and walking around to see the animals in the morning. If we visit Crystal River again I hope there is room for us with Polly!
