If your paradise includes swimming, scalloping, boating, fishing, paddle boarding, kayaking, and watching glorious sunsets - this is the home for you!
Bedroom 1: King Bed | Bedroom 2: 2 Queen Beds, Fold-out Futon, Blow-up Queen Mattress (Upon Request)
Nestled in a prime location on the shores of the Homosassa River, this 1,300-square-foot home features a covered balcony overlooking the private dock - located in a No Wake Zone- and a furnished deck with beautiful views of the crystal clear water, allowing you to make the most of the beautiful Florida climate. During your stay, get up close and personal with your 2,000-pound neighbors, by sitting on the dock or kayaking alongside the manatees or dolphins that live in the river.
From the moment you open the front door, you'll have a breathtaking view of the river complete with boaters going to-and-from the spring. Light, bright, and breezy - that's how you will feel in this home. With comfy rooms furnished to perfection, this is riverfront living at it's finest.
This spectacular home offers tranquility and a one-of-a-kind coastal living experience. Located on a small island, decorated in upscale coastal decor, this stilted home is a unique hybrid of elegant and fun! The views are panoramic from the balcony with the river as your backyard, the opportunities for nautical adventure are endless.
Channel your inner Bobby Flay in the fully equipped kitchen when stomachs start to rumble. With stainless steel appliances and lots of counter space, the spacious kitchen has everything you'll need to impress your friends with your Food Network caliber finesse.
Looking to spice up your dinner? Instead of dining at the indoor dining table for 6, head to the covered porch and have a banquet-style meal against a backdrop of sunset skies and drifting vessels. With a high-top table for 4 and an outdoor couch, the furnished porch is the perfect setting for a family meal or nightcap.
Before heading to bed in one of the home's 2 cozy bedrooms, throw your dirty duds in the laundry and rinse off in one of the 2 walk-in showers. The master bedroom features a luxurious king bed, an en-suite bathroom and elegant pops of color, creating an elegant captain's quarters ambiance.
Make the most of the home's riverfront location and spend as much time as possible in the large backyard. With a gas grill, large dock and kayak launch, the backyard provides access to endless river fun for people of all ages! There is also a private community boat ramp located just 2 houses down from 'La Casa Del Rio.'
'La Casa Del Rio,' is the ultimate fishing retreat perfectly placed within minutes of the Gulf of Mexico and clear waters of the spring. When bringing your boat or toys along, the private ramp is just a short walk away - no fuss like public ramps - making it easy to unload and cruise through the water to park at the home's private dock.
Known as 'Florida's Natural Coast,' Homosassa is an outdoor enthusiast's paradise. Whether you choose to fish off your private dock, snorkel for scallops or kayak with wild manatees, you'll be experiencing the beauty of nature just steps from your front door. Launch an excursion from the free private boat ramp, just a short walk away, and head out to the 'Blue Waters' at the head of Homosassa Springs or the Gulf.
For an unforgettable Florida experience, head 1 mile down the road to Homosassa Springs and swim among wild manatees. Located within walking distance from the property, these crystal-clear waters that maintain 72-degree temperatures year-round are the only place in the U.S. where it's legal to swim with these majestic sea creatures.
Can't get enough of the native wildlife? Spend a day at Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park and experience the beauty of black bears, bobcats, white-tailed deer, American alligators, American crocodiles and river otters! The park is also home to Lu, a hippopotamus that has lived in the park for the last 57 years.
After a day of fishing, let off some steam at one of the area's many tiki bars. All within 10 minutes of the property, The Freezer, Margarita Grill, Seagrass and the Monkey Bar provide delicious drinks and authentic local atmospheres.

We had a wonderful time here the past 2 months. We look forward to seeing you again next year.
Steve & Dean Anne Brown
This home was wonderful, the location was great, very close to everything.
The home was fully equipped for all our needs.
We loved going to eat dinner by boat and taking in the spring to see all the beautiful manatees.
The dock was great to sit and relax in the morning drinking coffee watching the sun rise.
We will be back to this home, had a wonderful time here.

Best location hands down , close to everything by boat or car. The views off the back balcony are breathtaking, we could see dolphins and manatees swim by and fish jumping. The dock was great to fish off of and have a cold beer as time flew by.
Loved how close to the spring and gulf. Having the boat ramp is worth the money, not having to fight the crowd and pay to launch. Will come back !
