About Amber

I purchased this home in 2011 after falling in love with the Rainbow River, the crystal clear spring fed water took my breath away. The land that this home site on is truly priceless and I am excited for you to experience the wonder of this magical place.

Amber purchased this house in 2011

Why Amber chose Dunnellon

Years ago as a child I visited the Ichetucknee River in northern Florida and I promised myself that one day, if I ever found a place that beautiful again, I would buy it and build my dream home. Thankfully I found it and now I would like to share it with you.

What makes this house unique

The land this home sits on is truly unique. Almost every home on the Rainbow River is directly on the main flowing river where there is constant tuber traffic and noise. My house is set off the river in a crystal clear lagoon (not Blue Cove) with a private clear large stream that runs through it. Plenty deep for swimming but smaller children love it because they can stand and enjoy in the fun. You can see the tubers floating by and you can reach the river by swimming to it in less than two minutes. You will love the privacy of your own oasis. This home is a must see!

Our 25th Anniversary Rainbow River Renewal

  • 5 out of 5
This home is incredible! We recently stayed for 5 nights with 15 of our family and we had plenty of room for more. The home is designed perfectly so we all had plenty of group and individual space. The large round dining table was perfect for our family breakfasts and seated all of us comfortably and the state of the art kitchen is fully equipped with everything you could possibly need. The front yard has a large fire pit area with chairs that we enjoyed on the chilly evenings. The best thing about this home is the view. Situated right on the Rainbow River with its own private island with bridge (which is the romantic setting where we exchanged our vows) you can't find a better way to spend your day relaxing. We renewed our vows with 50 of our family and closest friends and we all spent the days kayaking or tubing down the river together. My family agreed this was one of the best vacations we have ever experienced, alone or together. The water is beautiful and crystal clear. The home came with two kayaks for our use as well as floats but there is a tube rental right down the street. Amber, the owner, was fabulous and always answered all of my questions while trying to plan the party from Ft. Lauderdale. She even provided me with the names of event planners(Connie at A Special Occasion was a lifesaver), Florist (A Floral Occasion provided our beautiful centerpieces and bouquets) Caterers, etc...The use of the home and the grounds for this special occasion was a once in a lifetime experience and I can't say enough great things about our trip. We are already talking about another one in the near future. Also, it's close to Swampy's restaurant where we had a group dinner and cocktails after our day floating. The quaint town has wonderful mansions converted into craft/antique stores and we all found mementos to commemorate our time together. I can't say enough good things about this home, location or owner. I have and will continue to tell everyone this is the place to stay and we definitely plan on staying there again!

Great property with a great location!

  • 5 out of 5
Our group of eleven stayed a week at this Rainbow River home, three families in all. We couldn't have asked for a better location, the house was perfectly situated, close to grocery stores, restaurants and the Rainbow River State Park. We had ample room to spread out, as well as, come together for meals. The kitchen was well appointed and large enough to accommodate multiple chefs simultaneously. The pool table, fire pit and kayaks were put to use daily. The crystal clear waters were amazing. We saw fish and otters every day just sitting at the back of the house! Our kids (ranging in age from 6 to 15) were never bored. Tubing, kayaking, swimming, fishing, boating, what more can you ask for? Great family vacation!

great house, river so refreshing

  • 5 out of 5
We came over for our annual scalloping trip but wanted to stay away from the coast as the mosquitos can be quite nasty in the summer. We found this location to be close to Crystal River (35 minutes) but with the added benefit of the Rainbow River providing a refreshing way to relax after we had finished our morning scalloping. The private stream out front is a perfect place for the kids to play and we floated many times down to Swampy's - 45 minutes to an hour on tubes is just perfect. If you want a longer float you can go up to the State Park and put in there. The house was big enough and we came with three families and never felt crowded. The large round dining table is so great - no other VRBO house we have rented had close to this much seating for a meal. I think we got 14 people around the table. If you bring a boat just know that it's on a dead-end road with no turn-around but the yard is big enough to pull in if you are good at driving a trailer. We only ate one meal out - at Swampy's - and it was very good... better than we expected. We would definitely rent here again.

Relaxing, fun

  • 5 out of 5
The kitchen was well-stocked and equipped to cook for a good-sized group, though we brought plenty of paper goods so we didn't have to spend all weekend doing dishes. Loved the water access, the kayaks, the bridge... beautiful location. We played plenty of pool, were in the water all weekend, and were grateful for this property.

Would stay there again in a heartbeat!

  • 5 out of 5
This house is beautiful, well-maintained and has an incredible open layout. I was there with a few friends for my 30th birthday and we all had a wonderful time. You open the back door and you are right on the water, but still a little bit away from the crowds doing the main river float, so you have privacy. We would tie our floats to the deck and just have a big float/swimming party right outside the house. I would suggest it for any group because the inside is big enough that people can spread out. Great perks are the pool table inside and big dining table that we could gather around for dinners.

Great place!! Great times!!

  • 5 out of 5
We had a fantastic time at the river house! The home is very nice and spacious. (We had 16 in our group with plenty of room to spare) The location is superb and the river is beautiful. The inlet makes it very easy to get on your rafts or tubes for a pleasant 45 minute to an hour float to the bridge, where we parked a truck to get back to the house, but it is also walkable. We also fished, canoed, kayaked, had a friendly pool tournament, played cards at the very large table, had a bon fire....we simply had a blast! We will definitely rent this house again in the future!
