Visit nearby Homosassa State Park and have your own manatee encounter! With delicious restaurants, boutique shops, and museums nearby, there's something for everyone! -- THE PROPERTY -- ** Inquire for a discount on monthly stays! ** Master Bedroom (Captain's Quarters): 2 Queen Beds, Futon | Bedroom 2 (Crew's Quarters): Queen Bed, Futon The moment you walk into this cozy home, the marine decor and tiki bar will immediately inspire you to head to the water for a fishing or boating excursion from the private boat ramp! The bright, fully equipped kitchen is ideal for preparing the catch of the day or any home-cooked meals that you may crave. Proudly serve your meals at the round dining table or your own tiki bar, with total seating for 8. Decorated with fishnets and tropical fish, the tiki bar offers an ideal spot to make a tropical cocktail. Bordering the bar is a sliding glass door to the large private grassy yard. Stroll over to the newly built cove to untie your boat from one of the palm trees! Head over to Monkey Island just across the water to visit the 4 friendly monkeys living there! The living area features 4 large windows allowing natural light to pour in, making the space airy and open. Sit back and relax on the sofa and chairs, which encircle a large, flat-screen cable TV to watch your favorite shows. This home is appropriately named ‘The Upper Deck’ as this area will quickly become your favorite part of the home with outdoor seating around a fire pit and great water views. When the sun has set and the stars are sparkling above, sit around the fire pit and share stories from the day's adventures. The 'Captain's Quarters' features 2 queen beds and an abundance of natural light, creating a calm and serene ambiance. The 'Crew’s Quarters' provides a queen bed, futon, and an attached bathroom with modern amenities. -- THE LOCATION -- The Homosassa River is a popular feeding ground for the Atlantic Tarpon, known as the 'Silver King of the Sea World.' Head down the river a short paddle to visit the world famous Monkey Island or paddle up the river to the headwater of the springs to meet the friendly 2,000-pound manatee neighbors. Homosassa and Crystal River are 2 coastal neighboring towns within Citrus County - famous for being the only place in the United States where you can legally swim with the manatees. Head to Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park only a few miles away & enjoy a pontoon boat tour to further your knowledge of the wildlife that inhabits these Florida waters. Book a fishing trip with many local fishing guides, book a manatee tour or book a scallop trip during the 90 day season July- September. 'The Upper Deck' is next door to SeaGrass Resort restaurant and outdoor tiki bar. Walk the other direction to Marguerita Grill, another popular restaurant and bar with outdoor waterside seating. Just a little further down the street, you can visit the brand new 'Crumps Landing', an enormous waterfront tiki bar & restaurant establishment. You can kayak, boat, or walk to these coastal restaurants for an authentic Homosassa experience! Venture across the river to more waterside restaurants! 'The Freezer' is famous for steamed shrimp and MacRae's is famous for their waterside 'Shed' establishment and music. Also located here in Citrus County is Black Diamond golf course, aka the '#1 Golf Community in Florida.' With 45 holes of Tom Fazio-designed terrain, this course is a beautiful area to hit the links and then stay for a delicious dinner with views of the stunning Quarry Course. -- REST EASY WITH EVOLVE -- Evolve makes it easy to find and book properties you’ll never want to leave.
