  • Amazing property


    This is an incredible property and we have visited it several times in the past few years. It has everything one could want in the house - comfortable beds, stocked kitchen, appliances, washer and dryer, WiFi, etc. The land around the property is beautiful and there is close access to State Parks, Ozella, the Greenway biking trails, fishing, hiking, kayaking, swimming, etc. Brooke is an excellent hostess and communicator. We look forward to many returns!

  • Beautiful Retreat


    This is a gem of a property. We have stayed here a few times in the past 2 years and we plan to return. It is secluded, peaceful, comfortable, and with all the amenities that one might need. We like to be away from the crowds, have close access to water and woods, go for hikes, ride bicycles, kayak, etc. This property has it all. Inside, there are modern appliances, laundry, plenty of space, good wifi, very comfortable beds, and two large bathrooms. I can't think of anything else we might have needed. There are plenty of ways to stay entertained in the immediate area, and there are loads and loads of really fun things to do within 30-40 miles... The Greenway bike trails and land bridge, the Withlacoochee Bike Trails, several State Forests with hiking and biking trails, several rivers and springs for kayaking and swimming, the St. Martins Marsh Aquatic Preserve, Ozella, and the list goes on and on. Brooke is a gracious hostess and a very good communicator.

  • Off the beaten path


    If you're looking for seclusion and privacy this is your place. Not your typical rental with close proximity to bars and restaurants. Much more of a suitable place to read a good book or perhaps even write one. The house and property feel more homey like a good friend gave you the keys, not at all like a typical rental. This is an older homestead with quirks that only add to the charm. It feels unique and special, we didnt want to leave.

  • The perfect family vacation house!


    Old Sassa House was absolutely an incredible slice of Homosassa! We have been coming for the 6 years to Homosassa and this property has by far been the best. Great property managers with quick responses to everything and more than accommodating owners. We will be rebooking this property for the following year!

  • Relaxing


    The property was clean. View is spectacular. It's in a very secluded location. If you travel there in the summer, bring big spray. They had 2 kayaks, a canoe, and 2 bikes you could use. We had a very relaxing stay there.
