Description of the home we are offering for exchange
My waterfront bungalow is located on the West Coast of Florida, in "Old Florida", where manatees, dolphins, and otters frolic in the beautiful Homosassa River, which meanders into the Gulf of Mexico. If you don't care for high-rises and hoards of people, this serene get-away is definitely for you. My home is on the Grand Canal, a 5-minute boat ride into the Homosassa River. Turn right at the river, and you'll head out into the Gulf. Turn left, and you'll head toward the springs, which culminate at the Gold Medal award-winning Homosassa Springs Wildlife Park.
My home is a one-story, 2BR, 2BA, bungalow with a sun-room which has 2 daybeds. There is also a Queen-size hide-a-bed in the living room. As a retired English teacher, I have walls of books for you to enjoy. There's a large, 3-person swing in the backyard, plus a lovely dock where you can moor your boat. The yard offers magnolia and palm trees, plus many blooming flowers, including azaleas, roses, and gardenias.

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area
Homosassa is located about 70 miles north of Tampa, only an hour's drive up the beautiful Suncoast Parkway, which connects my area to the Tampa airport. Orlando and Disneyworld are only 2 hours away, an easy day-trip.
Fresh Gulf shrimp, crab, and fish are abundant, whether you want to forage for your own, or take the easy route and visit the local seafood shops and restaurants. It doesn't get any better. Also, there are marinas for boat rentals, plus local guides to aid you in your angling ventures. Grouper, snapper, and mackerel are local favorites.
I travel year-round to other states, Canada, and Europe. Exchanges do not need to be simultaneous. Please keep this lovely piece of paradise a secret. We like it the way it is: unspoiled, natural, and peaceful.
