What a wonderful property!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for 6 days visiting our son. This is place is much better than even the pictures indicate. Immaculate house and so comfortable .... you will really find yourself feeling like you're at home.

The pool is super clean with a wide variety of toys in the bin located on the lanai along with enough seating for at least 8 outside.

Whatever you need is already there, games, puzzles, pool table, books, magazines...etc.

Also, if you want to visit around holidays there is more than enough kitchenware to dress a formal dinner.

The property manager was also very pleasant to us and gave us tidbits on the "things to do" in Ocala.

I've already let them know that this will be my property of choice for all future visits.

Thanks again, Sakie and John, San Jose, California

Great homeowners and managers to work with.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay; the house and pool were lovely and included everything we needed to cook for ourselves and really relax. More than any other Homeaway destination we have stayed at, these owners and their managers are superior. Every question was answered immediately, and each went out of their way to be accommodating and informative. I highly recommend this rental.

The landscaping was beautiful. We enjoyed the fox squirrel and birds. The house was local to my family whom reside in Florida. We all enjoyed the pool and relaxing with family. We will definitely return again.

A Perfect Ten

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for us. The Owners And Managers Were most helpfull with answering any questions we had as to Churches, food shopping etc. The house was very comfortable and well kept. The heated pool was just beautiful so relaxing on the very warm days. We were very disappointed that we could not rent for next year because it was already booked. We would like to thank Denise and Brain for always being there for us. We hope to stay there again.

A Lovely Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed a very relaxing vacation in this spacious, well-appointed home. Being cooks we appreciated having everything we needed to take advantage of the fresh seafood and luscious strawberries which were in season. The central location of this property is a distinct advantage if you like exploring the "real" Florida away from the more usual tourist haunts. The owners and property manager were very helpful and courteous and we highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a place to be happy and comfortable.
