We call it Old Florida for a reason. It is like going back in time where things were quiet, nature was abundant and everything was on your time! If you haven't visited this western-central part of Florida on the gulf coast lately, you really need to. This area has its own unique character and charm with endless things to do. We loved it so much, we bought a home here. 

Otter, manatee, hawks, egrets & owls also call this river home. Located right on the Chassahowitzka River, we love enjoying the plethora of wildlife that calls this beautiful place home. We affectionally named our house ChazTastic River Retreat because it is peaceful, thriving with nature & is a coveted paddle destination of crystal clear water. 

Our beautiful home, located right on the Chassahowitzka River is the perfect getaway to enjoy old Florida. Laid back living, yet with so much to do nearby. Paddleboard, kayak, scalloping (in season), fishing (gulf or river) and diving many springs. Weeki Wachee & Crystal River are just fifteen minutes away and a short 70 minutes from Tampa International Airport.  

The Chassahowitzka River's greets you with greens and blues within its deeper spring fed holes. The. Beautiful river greets as if to say "have a great day on the Chaz today, old friend”. Old Florida intimates its secrets, jeweled springs and hidden places and creatures.


The word "chassahowitzka" means place of hanging pumpkins” So come on and Hang out.
