Places to stay in Ozello
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.

    Home is on the canal perfect for kayaking enjoying nature, access to the gulf
    Neighborhood is a old fishing town
  • We picked this spot to fish and canoe we were gone most of the day. We came in tired took hot shower and slept good. This place was perfect for our adventure.we hope to return again next year.

    Terrie2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent spot for the price would recommend to stay here if I come back that's where I'll probably stay

    Mary2019-10-14T00:00:00Z
  • Great little place for 2, close to great diner, and was great location for us getting around for my daughter's wedding. Everything is about in 15minutes drive. Coffee pot and coffee cups was a awesome touch.

    Scott2019-07-14T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful place to stay!! The owners were so thoughtful, adding lots of extra touches to the space and even left us plenty of extra supplies. They continued to make sure we didn’t need anything. The inside was perfect, clean, comfortable. The back yard and dock were amazing and we absolutely loved seeing all the wildlife. The bed was a little small for 2 adults but we were so amazed by the whole place it didn’t matter. We loved the whole area around as well. Stores etc were close by and the road itself was a beautiful drive.

    Crystal River, FL, United States

    Wonderful peaceful old Florida vibe at the intersection of St. Martin's River and Salt River. Private updated fishing cabin surrounded by water on three sides. Great Blue Herons and other native Florida birds visit frequently. Dolphins, Manatees and Bald Eagles have also been seen. Lay in the hammock and listen to the breeze in the palms. Crab and fish from the private dock and enjoy breathtaking sunsets! Please note: Suitable for kayaks and canoes only. No trailered outboard motor boats.
    The house is seemingly out in the middle of nowhere! However it is just 18 minutes from kayak rentals, Manatee tours and scalloping tours at Manatee Tour and Dive in Crystal River. St. Matin's Outpost Marina in Ozello is 6 minutes away where kayaks are also available for rent. They also have live bait and reggae music on Friday night. The house is approximately 600 square feet recently refurbished with hardwood floors throughout except in the bath. It has an open floor plan with more living than sleeping space so the bedroom is small but does accommodate a queen bed. The property is located at the end of a private drive and is surrounded by water on three sides. Large cedar and cabbage palms with a green lawn surrounded by mangroves and water. Home to many birds and other wildlife. Enjoy picnics in the covered outdoor pavilion and sunsets from the private dock. Launch your kayak from natural launching ramp on property. There is no room to turn around trailered boats and the water is too shallow to navigate with a larger boat. There is a hammock to the right of the front door as you enter the house. Ready for you to use. There are ropes to attach it to on two large trees out by the water. We do allow pets and are happy to have you bring yours! We do expect our guests keep pets off the furniture and pickup after them in the yard and on walks in the neighborhood. There is a two dog maximum though we are open to exceptions so send us a message about your dogs and we will happily consider.
    Ozello is a sparsely populated unique settlement of nature lovers who are there to enjoy the natural habitat and wildlife. Ozello sits right in the middle of the St. Martins Marsh State Aquatic Preserve. The Ozello area is not like most Florida coastlines. There are miles of marshes, grasses and mangrove islands dotted with cedar trees and cabbage palms. From the dock you may catch redfish, catfish, snook and sea trout. A kayak will provide access to a better fishing area located between the first mangrove island off the dock and the second mangrove island. There are many places to rent kayaks in the area. There are also several crystal clear springs in the area that remain at 72 degrees year round. During the winter the springs are home to hundreds of manatees seeking warmer waters. Swimming with the manatees is a fun activity to enjoy in the winter months. Mid summer scalloping season begins. There are tour guides offering trips to the scallop beds in the area. Another enjoyable way to spend the day!
  • The check in process was as simple as they get. The property was just as marketed, a cute little cabin in an tucked away spot (but not too far from everything!). The property was kept in immaculate shape and the owners even left fresh organic greens for us to make salad with. We will definitely be revisiting this property.

    Michael2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Paul was an exceptional host. No matter the time of day, he would respond if I had a question or concern. He always got back to me within 30 minutes. The house itself was sparking clean and just absolutely amazing. The kitchen was fully stocked with pots/pans, bowls, spices, etc. I couldn’t recommend this place anymore than I already have. Oh... and the views..... BREATHTAKING. I sat out on the dock more than I did anything else I think lol. It was just amazing. If you’re thinking about staying— look no further. This place is PERFECT

    Rachel2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Great place for vacation!

    Mathieu2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • If you are looking for peace & solitude...great location....a great restaurant down the road...and easy to get to many rivers near by....

    Billy2020-01-09T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful little piece of heaven with sunset views. Dog friendly and so relaxing. Great place to stay.

    Melissa2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage is perfect. The location allows easy access to kayaking and fishing and is 10 minutes from restaurants, grocery stores, and attractions. The property was sparkling clean and well appointed. We spent a very fun and relaxing week here for New Years and will definitely be back.

    Brooke2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • Paul is an excellent host, who responds to questions virtually immediately. We especially appreciated the recommendation for dinner at Peck's Old Port Cove seafood restaurant, it was a wonderful meal. The cabin is really perfectly decorated and has everything that you would wish to have for a couple of days away from home. Loved our trip to the Crystal Springs area, the visit to Three Sisters Springs to see the manatees, and the heritage village with Bubbaque's restaurant. We'll definitely be back in the future.

    Crystal River, FL, United States

    Enjoy Crystal River on a canal that leads quickly to the gulf that includes a private boat ramp to launch your boat and a small dock. This cozy home features a deck, FL Room/Porch with a couch bed and patio set, a large master bedroom with a private bath, and a 2nd bedroom with a living room combo. The home has a large open kitchen with a dining area as well as a small office area. Laundry room available. The large backyard has a nice grill and outdoor patio. Extra cleaning done for Covid19
    Remote area is safe and quiet with all the amenities to feel like home. I recommend bringing a flashlight if you plan to arrive late.
    My country cottage is located 6 miles off the main road. However there are a couple of small businesses close by that offer some home items as well as a couple of great restaurants. The neighborhood is quiet and safe.
  • We loved our stay. The affordable price made it possible for us to do a lot of extra fun things. We caught enough fish for two dinners and one was a 20 inch trout.

    Steve2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • This is a wonderful place to stay and won't break the bank. Michelle is a wonderful host and goes out of her way to make sure you have a great stay. It is great for couples, a family or a group of friends. It is not far from a couple restaurants, downtown Crystal River and Fort Island Beach. You won't go wrong booking these accommodations!

    Laureli2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • My family needed a quiet safe place to stay while we explored the area and this place suited our needs well. I've never been to the area before and now that I know what to expect I would definitely stay here again.

    Adam2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • This is a great little camp. I immediately felt right at home. It was very clean and comfortable. Very nice flat yard with the water right at your fingertips. There is reliable wifi and cable tv throughout. Quiet neighborhood. Plenty of different spaces to use and enjoy. Thank you for a great stay.

    Joseph2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay if you're looking at exploring the state parks and having a very secluded quiet place to stay. We were close to all the activities we had booked (including kayaking with manatees) and really enjoyed relaxing back here after all that exercise.

    Zara2020-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • Large house, great location on canal, everything that we needed was supplied in the house. Great price, walking distance to food/ drinks. loved it!

    Shelly2020-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • Michelle's place is a cute, quirky cottage in a great location and has everything needed for a comfortable stay.

    Nicole2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • dear jorge we had a wonderful time in your accommodation. the garden ist a dream and we loved to sit on the jetty and enjoy the scenery, or to explore the area by boat. the location is fantastic, super safe, great neighbors and restaurants. Great for trips to the Manatees. There we're other guests , with seperate entrance. we got to know each other and had a very nice contact, but no one disturbed the other. The house is super clean and absolutely perfect ( with Alexa) equipped. Very cozy and tastefully furnished. We immediately felt komfortable and would like to live with you again.

    Thomas & Gabriela2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Great location for Crystal River (as that was the main purpose of our visit). Comfortable house, and we really enjoyed the outdoor space, especially the screened in deck for the evening. I’d stay here again.

    Annabelle2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • This was a very quiet and peaceful space, perfect for a relaxing getaway. The location is great for access to the water and nearby state parks and attractions, especially Manatees.

  • The best

    Boris2020-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • Cool, island vibe. Pretty neighborhood, but don't be in a rush to get in or out as there is a low speed limit for miles to the main road. Island Outpost was a great recommendation for breakfast. Dock was good for relaxing - be aware that the bench moves easily. Comfortable beds in the same room.

    Pamela2019-12-24T00:00:00Z
  • If you’re looking for an off the grid location this place is great! It was clean, comfortable and the outdoors are perfect for a relaxing stay, fishing or just chilling of the private pier.

    Natalia2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • Jorge was prompt with responses and the place was greater than our expectations! Definitely a home away from home. Would stay again!

    The Bungalow is a comfortable older Florida home set in a shady grove on the banks of a saltwater greek with Gulf of Mexico access. It is a great location for fishing, scalloping, diving, hiking, biking or just sitting back and relaxing. Ozello is a very quiet fishing hamlet with three restaurant/bars, a convenient store and miles of woods, marsh and water. We pride ourselves on our high end linens and towels and a commitment to our guests comfort. Come and see for yourself.
    The Bungalow at Black Creek is ground zero for all the scenes and adventure offered on the Nature Coast. The queen bed sleeps 2 adults and there is a twin fold out sofa plus a couch for an additional 2 guests, total of 4 in the Bungalow. We are on the banks of Black Creek, about 20 minutes by slow boat to the scallop and fishing grounds of the Gulf. We have thousands of acres of open land and backwaters for fishing, kayaking, hiking, birding and just being. Fish from the backyard for snapper, sea trout, jacks, lady fish, snook, red fish, black drum, tarpon, barracuda and our ubiquitous blue crab. We have several close by public boat launches and a full service marina/store/bar for all your adventure needs. They also have all sorts of trips including scalloping, manatee swims, airboat rides and both backwater and open water fishing. St. Martins Marina (Ozello).
    Ozello is a quiet fishing hamlet with several residents still engaged in casting nets for mullet and setting traps for blue and stone crabs. With only 150 full-time residents, there are virtually miles and miles of quiet sandy lanes with no traffic. There are thousands of acres of state owned open land. No fences, no Keep Out signs. Peck's Old Port is a great old seafood restaurant on the water at the end of the keys - Ozello is a series of islands connected by short bridges. Backwater Fins is also waterfront and has a friendly bar atmosphere. Karaoke on FR and Sat. Sometimes live music. Great food. St. Martins Marina has a slew of guide and boating related services. The Island Outpost has enthanol-free gas for your boat and a sandwich grill.
  • My favorite Airbnb EVER! Wild peacocks, bald eagles, kingfishers, herons, Cooper’s hawks oh my!!!!!! This spot was literally heaven for us :) Super comfy inside, kitchen had all I needed including spices! Best bath tub ever- best shower ever! I literally didn’t want to leave, like ever. Took the canoe out one day- just gorgeous. A real slice of heaven! Thank you Robert!

    Heather2020-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • We wanted to spend time with the manatee at Crystal River..... but didn't want to stay in the city. This was perfect. We didn't use the kitchen but it is well stocked for making meals. We enjoyed the tub and shower..... particularly for warming up as it was a bit chilly in the evenings. We ate at the pub..... food and company was good. We watched Sunset off of the bridge near Peck's Old Port Cove..... fantastic. Great few days.... highly recommended.

    Jodie2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • Cute old bungalow on classic Florida gulf waterways. Ideal for kayakers and fishing. If we had stayed longer we would have caught fresh blue Crab for meals. The peacocks are free roaming and relaxing to watch.

    Anatolia2019-12-19T00:00:00Z
  • Everything was very comfortable and wonderfully kept. We enjoyed our stay and the handy information book that was in the house. Thank you for an amazing stay!

Great Wifi reception, huge tub, spacious backyard with a creek! Lots to see and do! The bungalow has everything you would need, it is a complete home away from home. And manatees! Robert was very attentive and text us the locations of the heaters when a cold front came through unexpectedly. He also has terrific recommendations and suggestions We loved the bungalow. Stay here!

    Older home with all the charm of Salt Life on the Ozello Keys. Dock and boat ramp on the property. The area offers excellent fishing, scalloping, kayaking, airboat tours, wintering manatee, surrounded by state preserve and the natural beauty is breath taking. Walking distance to restaurants and marina.
    Charming older home with two rental units on the water. The home has that Old Florida feel. This property has a boat ramp and dock for your shallows boat, with easy access to the Gulf of Mexico. The small island community is quiet and a short boat or car ride to Crystal River or Homossasa Springs. The natural beauty of the area is a must see. Fishing for Reds, Snook and Trout doesn’t get any better. A boat isn’t required to catch fish, just fish off the dock. The Ozello Keys are a major destination for kayakers. The shallow waters and many islands and a very large preserve area offer a special kayaking experience. Once you experience the Ozello Keys, you will return. If you would like to rent both units the other unit is Salt Life on the Ozello Keys l.
  • This place was in a great location on the water and super relaxing. Brad was really hospitable and met us right when we got there and gave us tips on places to eat and hangout and replied within minutes to all of our messages. 10/10 recommend

    Jami2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • This is the second time we’ve stayed here because we just love it so much. It’s like our little home away from home. Brad is incredibly kind and generous. We are already planning another trip back

    Lindsey2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • This is my favorite Airbnb I’ve ever stayed in. Bradley was so genuine and kind and made sure our stay was everything we’d want it to be. The backyard view was beautiful and the house was cute & everything we could need. The town of Ozello was amazing and the locals were friendly, always smiling and waving. This will definitely be a place we return to

    Lindsey2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • A wonderful find and an excellent location a mere few yards from the water's edge. A welcoming and attentive host who gladly gives pointers on where to eat especially when excellent seafood is a must! Many thanks to Bradley for providing us the highlight of our vacation stay. The place is cozy and well appointed with an old Florida vibe which brings back many happy childhood memories of growing up in Florida.

    Live "Island Style" in our updated 2 BR/1 BA cozy stilt waterfront home on a corner lot at the end of a private road. Launch your kayak or canoe just out the back door and be out on the St. Martins or Salt River in minutes where you can often see dolphins and catch redfish, snook, seatrout and blue crabs. Clean them at your fish cleaning station. Harvest scallops in the nearby Gulf waters. Kayaks and a bicycle are available for your use. Enjoy fishing, birding, paddling, boating and relaxing!
    High speed Wi-fi is provided, along with streaming basic cable tv via provided Roku. Our compact kitchen is well equipped, and there is also a gas grill available. We have a regular drip coffee maker as well as a Keurig for your use- so bring your favorite coffee or enjoy the supplied coffee. Grab your cup and watch the marsh wake up from your screened-in porch. Our comfortable home is ideally suited for 2 guests, but can sleep up to 4. We will have all of the basics you need for a comfortable homey stay. Spices and other essentials are supplied should you want to cook and dine at home. Although the bedrooms are small, extra touches like memory foam mattresses (and a brand new one on the king bed in the larger bedroom!) make it feel like home. Our neighborhood is very quiet and safe, as we are at the end of a short private road used only by neighborhood residents. No need to wait at a public boat launch to put your boat in the water, as we have a launch area available within a very short walking distance from the house (see property manager for details). Kayak and canoe launch is in the backyard. A marina for larger boats is approx. a mile away. During high water (the summer), you can keep your boat in our boathouse or at the dock at the yard. We have several different kayaks for your use- a tandem kayak, an older sea kayak (it moves well through the water!), and three traditional sit-in 12-13’ kayaks great for our waters here, or the local springs.

  • 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.

    Andrew2019-10-25T00:00:00Z
  • 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
  • Great place excellent location. Boat slip is a big plus we will return for sure

    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.

    Come and relax in old Florida. Very famous for backcountry fishing. Redfish, Trout, Snook, Mango Snapper, Tarpon, Grouper and many more. It is one of the most amazing places you have fished! There is a county boat ramp less than a 1/8 mile that's very easy to put in and out of. Floating dock to tie your boat up to right out your door. Smoker and grill on property, We are 10min from Homosassa River and 20min from Crystal River on a boat. Ozello is some of the best backcountry in the state by far.
    Downstairs detached bungalow clean, Beachy Florida decor and we are right nextdoor to Backwater Fins restaurant and bar. Walking distance to the local hangout Island Outpost with great food beer and wine. We have a paddle board and fishing poles free of charge to use on property. Great backcountry fishing!
    Beautiful, lots of nature and plenty to do. 🎣 🐟 🎣 🐟
  • Aaron is an awesome host and really makes everyone feel welcome to Ozello.

    Tyler2020-01-05T00:00:00Z

He gave us all kinds of advice and tips about where to go, things to do, boat rentals, and where to find the best seafood. He also provided fishing rods and a stand up paddleboard. We had a wonderful trip and fell in love with The Nature Coast and hope to go back very soon.

  • We truly loved staying In Christine’s house. It was everything we were looking for....Away from the main rush of traffic of Crystal River, friendly local places to grab a bite, Included every accessory of a home to make you comfortable as it does seem to be theirpart time home. We kayaked almost every day, enjoyed trying out the crab pots, fished Like crazy, and just enjoyed day after day of peaceful reading on the deck. The grill is a wonderful accessory for the days it is too hot to cook inside, And having a secure fence with a dog door in the house allowed our pooch to be comfortable as well. Kitchen is well stocked, As is bathroom and rest of the house. Any concerns that come up Christine is quick to respond. This is a well lived in and obviously well loved home In a charming area of the salt marshes. We truly enjoyed our time there!

    Bianca (Ravens’ Lodging)2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • Our family, including our goldendoodle, had a fantastic mini-vacation at Christine's place. The house was spacious and the kitchen very-well equipped (appliances are newer). The gas grill on the patio was also a nice feature. The downstairs was a great hang-out area for the teenagers with a dart board, t.v. (Roku), and full bathroom. The views from the house/covered porch were beautiful. We could watch the sunrise from the master bedroom. The house and furnishings are dated, but immaculately clean and maintained. The layout was a little quirky, but we thought it added to the overall charm of the property. Had a very slight hiccup checking in -- the listing stated check-in time was 2 pm, but the check-in instructions stated 3 pm. Unfortunately, I didn't see the check-in instructions until we were nearly there. Regardless, Christine was easy to get ahold of and she made sure we were able to get in. Very happy with her customer service! The property is surrounded by water on two sides. There is a floating dock on the property and a boat ramp right next to the property. We were able to use the kayaks and there was so much to explore and see on the water. The house is about 15 minutes from the main road which is where you'll find shopping/groceries. Overall, we thought the house was perfect and look forward to another visit someday.

    Jondell2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • This home is awesome! It is peaceful, and serene with panoramic views of the water and nature's bounty! Thank you for the extra touches with the Xmas decorations and the Kurieg! Such an aweome way to bring in the New Year! Perfect for a couple, two couples, or a family! So private and tranquil with many birds. We also saw an otter! Thanks again!

    Anne2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Very peaceful. Kayaks were great to have and use. Thanks again!

    Ashley2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • My family and I had a truly relaxing and peaceful visit at Christine's beautiful, lakeside, house. We especially loved the huge deck and the kayaks! It had super comfortable accomadations and amazing views throughout the house. The kitchen had everything we needed to host a Thanksgiving dinner. Also, our dogs loved the yard. We highly recommend this property if you are in the Crystal River area.

    Peter And Christina2019-11-30T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome place!!! Our family absolutely loved staying here. We saw dolphin feeding in the early morning right outside the porch. It was an amazing site.

    Sandra2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • We found Ozello to be just the gem of a place we were looking for, and The Gecko House did not disappoint as a cozy waterside home, tucked away in a neat little fishing community that seemed to come right out of a Steinbeck book. My only regret is that we don’t own a boat! Kids loved the hot tub and abundant kayaking. Check in was a breeze. Far away from the traffic on Hwy 19 but still convenient to Crystal River. Great drive on the Ozello Trail. Very responsive and hospitable host.

    Andrew2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Great location! Restaurants, pubs, airboat rides, diving tours all close by and within walking distance. David was a wonderful host and offered suggestions/ recommendations for everything we wanted and was quick to respond! Quiet, peaceful area with low traffic and nice neighbors.

    Andrea2019-12-26T00:00:00Z
  • The Gecko House was perfect for our scalloping get away. Dave was an excellent host. He was very responsive to all of our questions. He also provided us with a wealth of local fishing tips. The Gecko House is located on a beautiful canal just a short distance from the ocean. Native greenery surrounded the home which provided an excellent look at an amazing ecosystem. We would recommend the Gecko House and Dave as a host, to anyone interested in experiencing a river/ocean adventure.

    Brandy2019-07-18T00:00:00Z

    Rachael2019-07-06T00:00:00Z
  • The Gecko House was everything that my boyfriend and I had imagined our nature, water loving, slow paced life, vacation would be! David provided, way beyond our expectations, everything that we could need for the week that we didn’t need to bother him once for anything! If you are looking to really get away from it all, sit on a nice deck with a cozy fire while fish jump in the canal just steps away in the evening or watch the biggest birds you’ll ever see, land or fly right by you during the day, then this will definitely be the place for you!

  • 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

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😊

    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!

  • 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!

  • This place was fantastic! Sparkling clean and everything smelled pleasant and fresh. The hosts offered me Kayaks to use and i most certainly used them and had a blast. The fishing is good also within 1 mile.

    Ian2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful, quiet location in a house that was spacious and extremely comfortable. Bob and Marjorie lived nearby and were great hosts. We greatly enjoyed the location, on a secluded peninsula yet within easy reach of the town of Crystal River. We'd return in a minute.

    John2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • The house is clean, spacious, comfortable, well appointed, and the screened in, raised deck is everything you want from a screened in, raised deck. I fell asleep out there more than once. The location is natural, quiet, and beautiful. There is a level of welcome isolation to the island - and yet it's extremely convenient to town, if you have to go there. I talked myself out of having to go to town many times during my stay.

    John2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • A great relaxing house. Marjorie and Bob were great hosts. We appreciated them stopping by to make sure everything was good and offered the kayaks. The house was very clean, nicely decorated, and had plenty of extras. I loved the screened-in porch for relaxing. Nice to have the bbq. There is a restaurant within a minute walk serving good food and another store/restaurant in the other direction. The house is 6 miles from the major road where there are grocery stores/restaurants in both directions. We recommend the house.

    Constance2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • We loved sitting on the screened porch, reading, enjoying the birds. Even had a few meals out there! We appreciated the use of the kayaks for an excursion through channels and estuaries lined with mangroves. A special treat for us New Englanders in the midst of winter. People that we passed on our daily walks were all so friendly and welcoming. There were three restaurants nearby, two were within walking distance from the house. We really enjoyed our stay in Ozello.

    Bruce2020-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • Great Location,Great Host,Beautiful Vacation Home

    Robert2020-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • Our family loved this place. The house is located in a little village surrounded by beautiful nature. We loved to have breakfast on the porch. With the house we could also use the kayaks. So we could go on the river when ever we wanted. We spend 5 days at this cosy and comfy house. We wished we would had have more time to stay. This area of Florida is great for nature lovers. We thank Marjorie and John very much for their hospitality.

    Sabrina2020-01-02T00:00:00Z

    Located on a quiet canal in Old Homosassa, 1/2 mile from The Freezer Tiki Bar and 1 mile from the public boat ramp and Monkey Island. My newly renovated home in a quiet waterfront neighborhood offers a waterfront dock, huge deck with swim spa, gas grill, laundry room, all new appliances, beds and furniture.
    Use of the large in-deck swim spa is included. Use it for exercise or to cool off after summer scalloping or - fire it up for a relaxing hot soak. 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.

    Bradley2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • 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.

    Beautifully decorated and furnished waterfront cottage. Perfect for your honeymoon or just a relaxing getaway retreat.
    Private yard and patio overlooking a large wooded area and a crystal clear canal. Great fishing and great sight seeing right from your patio, several families of bard owls live in the area, a great blue heron "Big Bird", two wood storks "Lenoard & Leona",many ibis, along with a great variety other birds. In the canal there are otters, sting rays, turtles, manitee, porpoise and many varieties of fish. In the winter months the manatee also visit. There is a boat house that contains 2 kayaks a canoe and paddle boat. Life jackets and throw cushions are included.
    Quiet neighborhood on large 1/4 mile cul-de-sac. has wooded area as the center. Nice circle for walking or bike riding.
  • We loved our stay at Dennis and Debra's cottage. The cottage is adorable and perfect for a couple. The area is very quite and private. We enjoyed sitting on the back patio by the canal watching the fish. Having the kayaks and the boat house was the best part. We explored the canals and the Halls river in the kayaks. The bird watching was spectacular. Our stay was everything we were looking for. We hope to visit again soon!

    Maureen2019-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • Dennis and Debra have a great property to experience the wildlife on the river. Quiet relaxing atmosphere with plenty of outdoor space. Kitchen had all the essentials plus more. No stove, but grill outside and enough appliances to cook just about everything. We didn't lack for anything. Plenty of towels and backup toiletries if needed. Very helpful upon checkin, communicating was a breeze and even though on the same property, we felt like we had complete privacy. The water toys were especially fun and they even had coolers for us to use. The outdoor lighting was perfectly placed for sitting outside at night and early morning. Would definitely stay here again.

    Jodie2019-10-24T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay👍 It was my second trip hear. Can’t wait until my next visit❤️

    Sharon2019-08-11T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic cottage and location❤️. Canoes and kayaks suppled! Very relaxing view👍

    Sharon2019-06-23T00:00:00Z
  • This place is AMAZING! Even more beautiful in person than the photos. The space is immaculate, peaceful, a great balance of antiques and fun/beach theme and very comfortable. The neighborhood and waterways were both very tranquil, and we hardly saw a soul the whole time we were there. A great escape. We took the canoe out everyday that we were there - what fun to explore and paddle - a real bonus for us to have water access right outside the back door. Dennis and Debra thought of everything and were responsive and easy to communicate with. I highly recommend.

    Kathryn Kendall2019-05-22T00:00:00Z
  • Dennis and Debra's house was absolutely lovely. It was decorated nicely and had great amenities. We loved having the clear water right outside and even got the opportunity to take the canoe out for a spin. It's also a great place if you love wildlife as we got to see many animals from the back yard. It was a very quiet location and close to all the things we wanted to go do. Dennis and Debra were fantastic hosts. They were very friendly and made sure we had everything we needed. We'll definitely be back!

    Madelyn2019-05-19T00:00:00Z
  • This is the sweetest little cottage with a magical backyard full of beauty and nature. We loved staying here. Debra and Dennis were amazing and offered great suggestions. We would love to come back and stay here again!

    Laura2018-12-10T00:00:00Z
  • This place is a hidden gem, surrounded by Florida’s natural beauty, yet still close to some great restaurants, grocery stores, etc. I honestly wanted to move here after just a few hours spent in this magical cottage. Dennis and Debra have a beautiful and well maintained property. The cottage has all the amenities you can possibly need and as a bonus, they provide quite a few water crafts for your enjoyment such as a paddle boat, canoe, and kayaks. The crystal clear river in the back of the cottage is amazing! We saw stingrays, tons of fish, birds, squirrels, and much more. Dennis and Debra were great host and communicated perfectly prior to our arrival and during our stay. They were very flexible and accommodating. We hope to stay here again someday.

  • 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

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.

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!!!!

  • 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.

The small island community is quiet and a short boat or car ride to Crystal River or Homossasa Springs. The natural beauty of the area is a must see. Fishing for Reds, Snook and Trout doesn’t get any better. A boat isn’t required to catch fish, just fish off the dock. The Ozello Keys are a major destination for kayakers. The shallow waters and many islands and a very large preserve area offer a special kayaking experience. Once you experience the Ozello Keys, you will return. If you would like to rent both units, the other listing is Salt Life on the Ozello Keys ll.
    The small island community of Salt Life residence makes the Ozello Keys a very special place. There is so much to do just within walking distance. Restaurants, with weekend music, fishing charters, scalloping, airboat tours, kayaking, and much more.
  • Beautiful little house on the water. Perfect romantic getaway or just some time away from the city.

    Experience old Florida island life in Florida’s Western Keys. Enjoy our remodeled 2 bedroom, 1 bath cottage on a canal with access to St Martin's River and the Gulf of Mexico. Surrounded by conservation areas, great for fishing, scalloping, snorkeling, biking, bird watching, and kayaking. Quiet location with quick access to restaurants, marina, stores, and excursions. Plenty of parking, boat launch at marina down the street.
    The entire house, back porch, dock, yard, and water!
    We are located in the friendly Ozello waterfront community accessed via a nine mile 2 lane meandering road that connects a chain of islands, inlets and peninsulas. In the heart of the Nature Coast, surrounded by National Parks, Wildlife Preserves, and designated Outstanding Rivers, Lakes, and Springs, this community has been protected from large scale development leaving you to enjoy a time capsule of Florida which boast more nature than houses, more trees than roads, and more wildlife than people. All awaiting you to explore.
  • The cottage was very clean, accommodating in a quaint location. We went to some springs that we’re a short drive and were able to see some manatees and wildlife. I would suggest wearing earplugs as there is a neighbor who has some sort of hunting dog that is kept outside and is pretty loud. Other than that, which is out of the host’s control, we really enjoyed our stay.

  • This is one of the best Airbnb homes we’ve stayed in. Incredibly stylish & spacious. Kitchen was well stocked & beautiful. The bathroom is gorgeous and that huge tub was awesome after a long day. Every piece of decor is carefully selected and placed. It would be great for a family of 3 or two couples. Laundry on site. Large closets. Covered back porch with chairs. Empty lot next door. Quiet street. Restaurant & Marina with air boats rides within walking distance Excellent on all fronts.
