Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Ocala - Our little Paradise

3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleep 6, private pool

Welcome to our vacation house in Florida!

Ocala with the nearby Ocala National Forest is known as the horse capital of the world and is home of Kentucky Derby winners. If you love horseback riding this is the right place for you.

Enjoy the Silver Springs State Park which is very close to the house with dozens of springs and the Silver River. The area has the largest artesian spring formation in the world with 72 degrees warm crystal clear water all year round. Numerous other rivers are nearby such as the Ocklawaha River, the Rainbow River and the Santa Fe River which all meander through a stunning wilderness. So enjoy kayaking, snorkeling and swimming. These Springs are in reach: Silver Springs, Rainbow Springs, Silver Glen Springs, Juniper Spring, Salt Springs, Blue Spring, DeLeon Springs, Alexander Spring.

Just minutes away from the house you find access to the Cross Florida Greenway and the Marshall Swamp, a jungle-like wilderness. With lots of trails they offer a paradise for bicycling, hiking, roller blading, birding and wildlife watching.

Across the road is the Diamond Golf and Country Club, with 18 holes to play and the title 'Highest Slope Rating' in Marion County.

Goethe State Forest with it´s 23 miles of hiking trails and 41 miles of horse riding trails is only 40 miles away.

Supermarkets, drug stores, other stores such as a Walmart Supercenter and gas stations are also just around the corner.

You are within a radius of 80 miles or less to Orlando with all the amusement parks and outlet malls, as well as to Daytona Beach and to Crystal River. St. Augustine, the oldest continuously occupied European-established city and port in the continental United States is 85 miles away.

This beautiful bungalow is furnished, smart and comfortable. There are two double (queen) bedrooms and one twin bedroom. Master-bedroom has a big walk-in closet. Both bathrooms with a walk-in shower. The master-bathroom also has a bathtub. There is also a big kitchen, a recliner sofa, a double rocking recliner loveseat and a 50' flatscreen LED TV. The former garage has been converted into a carpeted, fully insulated multi-purpose room under AC with a Brunswick pool table for your convenience.

Enjoy the nice private pool and the roofed patio.

Well Maintained Solar Heated Pool Home

  • 5 of 5

I stay at Birgit's home yearly because it is exceptionally clean, well stocked and Linda the housekeeper is nearby and available if you have a question or problem. The artwork within the home is beautiful too. You will enjoy the heated pool or a meal poolside. I come to Ocala each year to kayak and Silver River State Park is well known for the clear springs, abundant wildlife and even monkeys. There are an additional 6 river trips within an hour of the home. Birgit continues to improve the home having added the solar pool heat this year and a walk in shower. It is clear why she gets so many repeat guests and I will continue to be one of them.

A beautiful home from home with everything you need

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time on our holiday in Ocala and the house was a major factor in this. It felt like home straight away and we especially enjoyed the pool area. The living and sleeping areas are comfortably furnished and are nice and cool if you need to escape the heat outside. The house is also close to supermarkets and other amenities.

We are hoping to return to Ocala next year and this house is top of our list.

This home is just as beautiful as it looks on here. The owners have everything in the house that you would need to stay as long as you need. It is large enough for 6 people or more to stay and not get in each others way. Scatters the fox squirrel will come out everyday. The art work of the the wild life that the owners have taken is absolutely beautiful. I rent a from VRBO 2 times a year in different areas around the U.S. and this is the nicest place I have stayed thus far. I would definitely come back if I ever have a reason to stay in the area again .The only thing I would change is to get some more comfortable mattresses or maybe just a nice topper for the beds. Thanks again for allowing my family to stay in your beautiful home.
