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!

Spring Break 2015

  • 5 of 5

This place is remarkable. The house was great. The privacy and the Island were awesome. We went with a group of parents and children during our spring break and had a wonderful time. Not only was the house great, but the town and the river were beautiful. We spent 3 nights and 4 days and no one wanted to go home. Plenty of room, plenty of amenities, plenty to do. And if you want to do nothing, you can do that as well. We posted photos as we were there and no one believed we were in Florida still. Hidden Gem and we didn't want to tell many people our secret location. We are planning the same for next year and adding a night or two. The place was great.

Great family escape!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this place for our wedding. We wanted out of town family to have a place to stay, hangout and be entertained since its not too often we get to see them. Far surpassed our goal and expectations!

Beautiful Florida Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time and enjoyed ever minute of the house and the river. The owner was quick to respond to any texts or phone calls with any questions. When the battery remote was flashing low battery she brought over some new batteries and a spare tank for the gas grill. The house was very clean and very comfortable. We discovered some new board games that she had stocked with the property. There were 12 of us and everyone loved the house.

Beautiful, spacious house and property!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a 3 night vacation at this property with 17 others for our annual "guy's weekend." The property was better than we could have hoped. Huge front yard, perfect for outdoor games, with a large, stocked fire pit for the colder nights.

Upon entering the house we realized the pictures don't quite do it justice. The house is very spacious and easily accommodated all 17 of us. It was very clean and well maintained with all modern fixtures. The owner was very quick to respond to any questions we had, which mainly regarded how to operate a battery powered faucet (which sadly took us longer than it should have to figure out) and where to locate the wifi password (which also should have been obvious for us).

The large stocked kitchen and the grill on the back patio were perfect for making meals big enough for our group, and there were ample supplied odds and ends (spices, dishes, cookware, etc.).

We debated renting a pontoon boat for one of our days, but between the supplied kayaks and some inflatable rafts we brought along, we had plenty of fun without it. The back patio, right on the river, and the private island over the bridge were beautiful and entertaining.

The only regret we had for our trip was not staying longer. I would definitely recommend staying more than the 3 nights we stayed, since the vacation flew by far too quickly.

There are a few local restaurants, including Swampy's in fairly easy kayaking distance, and a bar nearby that is open late, but we didn't have too much time to explore. There's also a very convenient Walmart for any odds and ends you may need.

I would definitely recommend this property to anyone wanting a beautiful place to stay, on a gorgeous river, with the feeling of "getting away from it all" without actually being "away" from everything.

We brought 34 scuba divers and loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our scuba shop in North Carolina brought down 34 divers to enjoy the Springs. Not only did we love the springs, but the Rainbow River Rental was perfect! There was room for everyone; plenty of bedrooms, air mattresses, and bathrooms (not to mention the shower with SIX shower heads). The house was well stocked with extra blankets, sheets, and pillows even trash bags, laundry detergent, and toilet paper. Some camped out back on the private island while others set up around the fire pit in the front. There is plenty of room to park and the fence around the house offered extra privacy. The kitchen was ideal for cooking for our large group. We could almost all fit around the dinning room table which had a large lazy-Susan on it. The pool table and board games were great for our group and we enjoyed football on the huge television in the living room. To top it all off the house was close to the grocery store and within thirty minutes of all the springs we were visiting. The view was the best part, it was our own little resort for the weekend. Everyone wanted to stay longer or just move in. Stay in this home and you will have a wonderful time!
