Not just a home rental, but a Private Island Retreat in the Ozello Keys. Experience the Real Florida here on the Nature Coast; only minutes from Crystal River and Homosassa.
Land bridge access with electronic security gate gives you the privacy and convenience of driving to/from your own private island with amenities you won't get from any other home rental! No traffic noise to hinder the awesome wildlife and beautiful serenity here.
Swim or relax in one of the 2 spas or the 45’ solar-heated pool with 2 32’ waterfalls and wet bar. As you relax in one of the stargazing chairs by the bonfire ring (wood included with your stay), watch one of Mother Nature’s night shows, unhampered by city lights.
All linens, towels and dishes are furnished in both units, each having a full kitchen with dishwasher, microwave, stove and all cooking utensils, including glasses, dishes, pots and pans.
Rent both upper and lower homes (2 bedroom 1.5 bath each) and only your group will be in Paradise*.
When you rent here, you rent an island retreat with many amenities. Be sure you know what is included with your rental, as we have become aware of others making it appear they have enough kayaks for your group; most have 1 or 2 at best, whereas we provide 14. Whether it's paddling with dolphins or exploring some of the 300 islands with one of the 14 kayaks/2 canoes that come at no extra charge, this alone could save a family of 6 more than $500 a day!
Rent a private island, not just a home-in-a-row on a canal. 360 degrees of open water views with very few boats going by!
We also can set you up to snorkel with the manatee or have a private all day tour of Crystal River, including snorkeling and fishing on your own private pontoon boat with your own licensed guide.
Make this the vacation of a lifetime for just a few dollars more.
*Caretakers on property to take care of any needs you may have.
I am a semi retired artist. I bought this island to retire to. After having several of my art customers come stay. i thought, would't it be nice to make a living sharing this beautiful natural spot with those that would never get to stay on an island like this. Or kayak the islands with dolphins
“This island was abused. I had gone by by boat and saw siding falling off. Major piles of trash every where. I thought how could any one do that to a estuary property. So 48 hours later I owned it.”
Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park is one of the best places in the state to view manatees, some of which are treated here before being released into the wild. An excellent value at $13/adult, $5/child, spend the afternoon at the zoo and research center (15 minute drive from Paradise).
Rainbow Springs State Park offers swimming, snorkeling, canoeing and kayaking, hiking and wildlife viewing (squirrels, otter, turtles, alligators, songbirds, hummingbirds, red-shoulder hawks, osprey, barred owls, and various water birds).
Weeki Wachee Springs is where underwater performances by mermaids (women wearing fish tails) can be viewed in an aquarium-like setting. Visitors can swim at Buccaneer Bay, see the Misunderstood Creatures Animal Show, or take a riverboat ride down the Weeki Wachee River.
Crystal River Archaeological State Park is a 61 acre National Historic Landmark, activities include salt and fresh water fishing, bird watching and a boat tour of Crystal River.
Yulee Sugar Mill Ruins Historic State Park contains the remnants of the once-thriving 5,100-acre sugar plantation, serving as a supplier of sugar products for southern troops during the Civil War.
Take a manatee snorkel trip for as little as $30 (let us know and we can book it for you).
Many Orlando area amusement parks and attractions are just a day trip away.
