Loved it!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful way to spend a week with the grand kids!!! We spent every moment we could swimming in the beautiful clear lake, paddling the kayak or fishing from the row boat. Mark and his wife have a lovely home, not only filled with all the thoughtful amenities but also personal touches making the home warm and inviting. The Foosball game and the DVD player also came in handy during Tropical Storm Colin!!! When we asked the kids if they'd like to come here again, they responded with a resounding, unanimous YES!!!

Didn't want to leave....

  • 5 of 5

This property was so perfect for our large family of 6! Our eldest son had a sports event in Newberry, about 45min. away, and coming "home" to the lake at the end of several hard day's was perfect. Our children loved swimming in the lake and kayaking with us. We barely used the kitchen as grilling and eating outside were our preference. The weather was perfect! The breeze that comes off the lake made even 90 degree weather lovely. Mark was wonderful to work with and we have this location saved in our favorites for next year's Gator Cup! Thank you so much for renting to us on such short notice and allowing our family to stay at your house. The memories we made are priceless! ... D&D

This place delivered as promised; charming, clean and full of amenities. The lake was beautiful. Our son attends UF and it was less than a 40 minute drive to his apt. We enjoyed kayaking in the lake and grilling out with friends from the area! We will definitely be back!

Peaceful Bliss!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, along with our 1 year old dog enjoyed a peaceful quiet week. The house is set up to accommodate you with everything you need. The lake was beautiful and my husband was thrilled to be able to just walk out the door and drop a line into the water. This was the first experience of water for our dog and she had a blast. I really needed some down time and this was the ticket. Quiet and away from the hustle of life but easy drive to Gainesville and St. Augustine. Toured the winery and Devils Millhopper which were close by and very interesting. All around great trip and look forward to going back possibly for two weeks in February. Thank you Mark for providing a great place to stay and making it affordable too. Enjoyed!!

Nice place

  • 5 of 5

For the month of March, my husband and I along and our two Pomeranians enjoyed this very clean and comfortable open layout home with two large bedrooms, one with a large walk-in closet. The place was unexpectedly well stocked. The large closed in porch with foosball table was enjoyed by our visiting family along with swimming in the lake, kayaking, row boating and fishing off the dock. The lake is beautiful and the water so clear you can see the fish swimming. My husband enjoyed the covered outside patio daily with a nice breeze coming over the lake. I walked .6 miles to a well stocked, reasonably priced grocery store and Dollar General and there is also a CVS, Family Dollar and McDonald's 1 mile away. It's a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the large Florida cities but only 45 miles from St Augustine beach. The owners were great to work with. I would highly recommend this rental
