Quiet Joy

We loved it. 4 months of looking out on beautiful nature; manatees, dolphins, mullets, cardinals and a beautiful pair of hawks we named “Harry and Sally”. Perfect kitchen and comfort all around. Thank you. We are returning next year.

Cozy Boater friendly family place

This place has everything! Private boat ramp, boat lift, plus two boat docks with a fish cleaning station and an ICE MACHINE. Very spacious. Couldn't ask for more.

Perfect property for a week on the river - great for a larger family

I cannot say enough about this property. We had a large group split among three houses and the Fish House became the place to cook dinners and hang out. The house was fully stocked, the large property was perfect for the kids to run around and the location provided easy access to the scallop grounds and springs. The owners were super to work with - extremely responsive and just really, really nice folks. We rented both the upper house and the downstairs "Captain's Quarters" and had plenty of room. The house has a great layout and super comfortable beds. Would highly recommend this property and hope to return again next year!

The Fish House is a beautiful, comfortable, gorgeous property right on the Homosassa River

Eight adults shared the Fish House for a visit in late December. We found the house to be extra clean, very bright and updated and the kitchen was stocked with really nice top quality items. The towels and linens were very nice. The wifi was good and strong and the cable TV was nice to have after a full day of fishing or swimming with manatees. The master bed was one of those memory foam things and one of the most comfortable I've ever slept on. The smaller beds and futons were less comfortable but still perfectly fine. The house is situated right on the Homosassa river and the photos don't do it justice! We spent hours sitting on the back screen porch just gazing at the river. The loaner kayaks that come with the house are good quality well cared for kayaks, and it isn't too far to paddle to get to Monkey Island. The house is a great location for a fishing trip. My husband and his buddies caught 80 fish in 5 hours. We all went on a private manatee swim with Captain Don of Air Tank Supply and saw at least 16 manatees including 4 babies. According to Capt. Don, you are only allowed to touch manatees on the Homosassa and not on the Crystal Rivers. A shame since many of the manatees will swim up to you to get a free massage. We also visited an Alpaca farm, the Homosassa State Wildlife park and the Weekie Wachee Mermaid park. To save on expenses we cooked most of our meals and it was a pleasure to use the kitchen which had everything you could want such as a large cutting board, big heavy pots for pasta, casserole dishes, good quality sharp knives and updated good quality appliances. The bathrooms are also way nicer than many typical Florida rentals. The house has a private boat ramp which made launching kayaks very easy. The one restaurant we visited was the "Freezer" which was so close we could have walked home, good to know since they sell $2 draft beers! The Freezer seafood was delicious and such a bargain!

Fantastic Clean House

We really enjoyed our time here. The kitchen had everything you would ever need to cook a meal. The accommodations were very clean and the neighborhood was very quite.

Great waterfront home with lots of amenities

Love being able to launch a boat right there, good docks and a fish cleaning station. And an ice maker! House is well appointed with a very well stocked kitchen. Great house for a family gathering.

The Perfect set up for scallop season

We had a couple families with small children stay for a week in scallop season. It was such a great setup at the fish house, we came back and rented it again a week later! Dani, the owner, was great with communicating and accommodating all of us. They have stocked the house with plenty of dishes, appliances, bedding, towels, and the ice maker downstairs came in extra handy! The other major bonus of this house is the boat ramp in the yard. We have a 24 ft skiff and had no issues putting it in or taking out...so nice to not have to use the public boat ramp! We had absolutely no complaints and have booked it for next year already! Thank you for everything Dani!

Beautiful Place to get away from it all

The fish house is a beautiful place to get away from the busy lives we all have. It reminded us to take time to relax & have fun. Biking, kayaking,fishing are among many things that can keep you busy. The house is so great, I don't want to tell anyone about it....Shhhh. Until next time fish house!!!🎣Recommended for: Adventure Seekers, Romantic Getaway.

We were very impressed with this property, it was truly amazing, relaxing and peaceful getaway.

This property was everything we wanted and more. We enjoyed the screen porch balcony for morning coffee. The firepit in the evenings. The kids enjoyed catching bass from the kayaks and catching crabs behind the house. The kids even went swimming in the canal. The house was well stocked and had everything you needed, the ice machine was another bonus. Endless supply of ice for the coolers when fishing and traveling. We recommend this vacation house for anybody wanting a true getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city life.
