A river cabin on a private island near Tampa Bay is now for sale for $500K


A secluded cabin that's just a quick boat ride to fresh water springs, and also some ideal scalloping grounds, is now on the market in Homosassa.

Located 12969 Homosassa River, the island home is only accessible by boat and is actually just downstream from the infamous Monkey Island. The 1,020-square-feet custom-built house comes with two bedrooms, and one bathroom, as well as a dock, a fish cleaning station, a bar, and a recreation room.

For how close it is to civilization, the private island is still pretty isolated, and only features a few other homes. In fact, there's hardly any homes at all on this stretch of Homosassa River, which features some of the best springs for snorkeling and manatee watching, before eventually spilling out to the Gulf of Mexico's prime scalloping spots.

The river house is currently asking $499,900, and the listing agent is Jared Tanner of Century 21 Alliance Realty.
