I and my girlfriend came here for a spring break and it was Amazing. John is one of the nicest guys on the planet everything he told us came true and his wife and dad are so friendly we sat and talked with them all day! The place you stay is extremely clean and well taken care of. He will even give you a boat to take out with a trolling motor that you can run all day with it. If you decided to stay in Homosassa’s stay here as we drove around during week there the other places were not half as nice as the Rod and Nod, when you go there you will see 2 pictures of giant gar the me and my girlfriend caught right behind the house. This is the best place around and john will tell you all the best places to eat and all the places you need to go and check out. My fishing charter got cancelled and he made phone calls and got me hooked up with another guy. I didn’t even ask him to he did it to make sure things were perfect for us. If you do deiced you don’t want to be bothered John and his family will give you plenty of space. Rod and Nod is nothing like the bad review below. We are no way related to John in any way I am not sure what the other review is all about we had a wonderful time there.
This was a very comfortable "cottage" with everything we could ask for. The place was clean and tidy and the flowers were gorgeous. John, the proprietor, was very very nice, worked to make our stay comfortable without being intrusive, he even submerged a marine light near the dock when he heard we like to sit outside at night and watch for sea life - how thoughtful. We had our own TV in our cottage so we did not experience anything like the other reviewer. I would use the website for location directions and to contact John.
My wife and I drove around looking for the place for 30 minutes. No one had ever heard of the place including some Forestry men. None of the other motels and baithouses ever heard of them also. Finally went on our laptop and called the number. Yes, John is a nice fellow. Yes, the side of the mobile home that he rents out was clean. Yes, there is a 16' canoe with a small trolling motor that comes with the rental. Has about 2 hours worth of battery, hope the tides not running on your way back.
We were expecting "cottages" as the add stated. Said you have your own cottage to enjoy. What you really get is to share 1/2 of a double wide with John. The tiki bar is where the TV is--hope you want to watch what John's watching. It is a double wide that has a screened in breeze-way between your rental and John's side of the house. That's why in his pictures you only get one side view not the complete view of the trailer. Parking is at a premium. And NO there are not "cottages as the add implies.' There's only one rental --John's house. Now if I were related to John and coming for a visit this would be ok but, it would be like spending the weekend at your parents house with your new girlfriend. Good view but no hanky panky.
I'm 62, and belive me there's still a lot of life between my wife and I and John is just TOO CLOSE.
The costs is too high for what you get too. I don't hold any bad feelings, but I just believe John needs to TELL IT LIKE IT IS! And not expect his renters to pay for his half of the trailer.
Good luck John...........Shopuld've listened to the Bad review and not the ones written by your in-laws and out-laws.
