Year Purchased: 2020

About the owner: We our Floridians and have been "stay-cationing" in Homosassa for many years and have often dreamt of owning a vacation house here. We know first hand that our guests will have many happy memories here!

Why this property? Troy has been an avid fisher from an early age and this property is amazing for others that are passionate about fishing! Nancy loves nature, snorkeling and kayaking. Having a deep-water canal in your backyard opens up many opportunities for adventures for water sports and fishing and for those who prefer to stay close to land, it offers many wildlife viewing opportunities.

The house is very accommodating and tranquil .

Staying for a couple of months I got to know the area which has a lot to offer. Troy and Nancy have the house set up great. The amount of cooking equipment indoor and outdoor met all my needs. The kayaks were very useful I enjoyed using them on a daily basis. The wildlife there is amazing. Using the boat lift and having a great boat dock was awesome. Which I used a lot. All of my guest found the rooms and house to be clean and well planned out. The parks in the area are a must see. The fishing was incredible and golf courses were in good shape. Location of the property is in a five minute car ride to so many restaurants and stores but when your at the house it seems secluded. People in the area were very friendly and provided good service. Totally enjoyed my stay and look forward to coming back. Thank you Troy and Nancy.

Sonny Springs

Good morning ... I'm writing the review but wondering if it's bad that my mould name matches yours ...or are you strictly Burkhart in your ads...We visited this lovely retreat as a way to explore the springs and Some fishing in the gulf. I cannot say enough about how we enjoyed our stay . Plenty of sleeping spaces in this clean 3 bedroom house with the master/en suite split from the 2 other bedrooms and shared bath . The kitchen and living area are open and well equipped and lead out to a screened linei with a ceiling fan. So despite being hot July in Florida we had the outdoor time we sought with outdoor dining and plenty of river time . The house provides 4 kayaks,paddles and life vests and we took full advantage of these,spending time at the springs and exploring the clear waters of homosassa . To add to our river experience was the boat slip in which we utilized. What makes homosassa special is combining fresh water springs along with a beautiful trip along the river to the gulf for a fisherman’s paradise ! A publix is 5 minutes away which adds to the convenience of a relaxing get away . I’m looking forward to visiting this rental as a repeat customer!
