Very unique experience
March 16, 2014
We just returned from our trip to Florida and have been raving to everyone about spending time in "the tree house". It is well equipped and very comfortable. My teenagers, husband and I loved using the kayaks to explore the canals and river. Swimming with the manatee was the reason we visited this area and staying in the tree house made this experience even more special. The staff was friendly and most accommodating. We would definitely recommend this to people who want to experience something different from a regular hotel stay.

It's really a treehouse!
December 30, 2013
Those were my brother in laws exact words when visiting us over the Christmas holidays. This property is a total win in every way. Nestled between numerous local artists and, yes, built around a beaiutiful tree and gorgeous landscape, is this eclectic and fun retreat. Spend time shopping for pottery or glass made on site or take one of the provided kayaks out for nature time. Staff from river safari will assist, or you can book a trip through them for diving or manatee boat excursion. You're not far from many local favs such as monkey island, or for the more experienced, paddle your way to three sisters for some up close and personal manatee sitings. Lots of great food and beverages within walking distance or very short drive. Or, just be lazy and take a pj day and enjoy just "being" in your very own tree house with exquisite artistic surprises everywhere, lots of natural elements, full kitchen, and wrap around porch. You won't be disappointed.

Great place / Great people
June 4, 2013
I believe I forgot to write a review from last summer. This place and the people were the best. If you are looking for a 5 star hotel, look elsewhere. If you want a cool house that seems like a treehouse where the people treat you like a friend, this IS the place. From when we first arrived until the minute we left it was like visiting old friends. Very roomy house with a full kitchen as well as a gas grill on the deck for cooking up some fresh scallops. Having the pontoons rentals right there was a big plus as you do not have to pack up the car to go to a marina. My kids and I had a blast using the free kayaks and drifting out to Monkey Island. I am already planning this summer's getaway and we will be returning. Thank yo for a great time.
Great Vacation in the Treehouse
July 28, 2012
This was our second stay in the treehouse. We stayed four great nights. We rented a pontoon boat from the marina/property owner for scalloping and fishing. The unit is very comfortable and full of character. The kitchen has all the equipment you need. Beds are comfortable and the wrap around porch is so relaxing. The staff is wonderful! They go out of their way to make your stay pleasant. We plan on returning in January for a manatee swim weekend and will stay in the treehouse again.

This is by far our best vacation value. We love the community of Old Homossasa. The Tree House is roomy and the staff could not be more friendly. The Tree House provides everything you need to stay a few nights, a week, or even a month! All you need to buy are groceries, if you like to cook on your vacation. The newly installed appliances are wonderful to work with. There are also wonderful restaurants close by and the Homosassa River is just a few blocks down the street. We also like the Tree House because you can get away from the "party" atmosphere that abounds at the hotels that are on the river. The Tree House also provides free, wireless internet service. It's clean and very comfortable. We would not hesitate to recommend the Tree House to any of our family and friends. Give it a try and find out why!

Just stayed there on opening weekend of scallop season this year.... had 4 adults and 4 kids.... The staff and deck hands were great , helped show us were to put everything including two boats we had.. the use of the ramp was clutch and the fact that you are allowed open acces to the ramp was great... The facilities on site were immaculate from the house to the grounds.. We are staying again july 15th weekend and can not wait.... also thinking on booking again for august weekends...

Great accomodation in Homosassa

A really good value for your dollar. I was there by myself but this place will easily accomodate 6. Big rooms, great deck, full kitchen etc and near the water. Lots of water-based activities nearby. You can't go wrong with the TreeHouse.

Nice relaxing trip
February 1, 2011
We had a great time at the Tree House. Everyone at River Safari's was friendly, along with the other surrounding businesses. Loved the use of kayaks to go see the friendly manatees and had fun on an airboat tour. Great location to walk down the street to see Monkey Island, local bars and restaurants. (We highly recommend the little BBQ place across the street, it was homemade to die for smoked meats and fish!!!) This was just what we were looking for in our trip. A quiet, comfortable place, with the needed amenities, friendly people, and simple place to relax and get away from it all. :-)
Our Scalloping Trip
September 7, 2010
Couldn't have been more pleased with the Treehouse and all the staff. Everyone was very friendly and helpful from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. The house was immaculate and perfectly suited for the 4 of us. The boat ramp was the icing on the cake. It was nice not having to battle all those folks at the public ramp. Thanks to all who made our weekend a great one. We'll definately be back next year.
