We recently rented this home for a month, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. This is the third time we've rented this home. It is located on a cul-de-sac in a quiet neighbourhood.The house is very comfortable and the in ground pool and deck is wonderful. The owners are great to deal with and are very accommodating.

Our Ocala stay

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Jody's place. Everything was very clean and the pool was perfect for us northerners. We enjoyed Saint Augustine and made other day trips. Mostly we enjoyed the pool and the great weather. We are thinking about going back next year.

Nice, Relaxing, Tranquil

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We were only able to use the pool a couple of days because the nights were pretty cool, but we did enjoy the patio every day. The home is on a very quiet cul-de-sac. The owners, Jody & Sharon are great. If you need something they respond immediately. The caretakers, Linda and Tim, live on the same street and likewise were excellent if you have any questions or need anything. We were in need of a Vet for our dog and they referred us to the one they use, we were very happy with them. The pics online are exactly as the home is. No surprises. We played golf often. One course, Lake Diamond, is literally walking distance. I walked home after playing one day. It is actually almost in their backyard. A few other courses also very close by. Upscale restaurants are a little bit of a drive as is any big shopping malls. Grocery stores, fast food, Walmart, pharmacy all very close by. We would return next year but unfortunately the month of March is already taken. Maybe 2020. 4 Stars only because of proximity to fine dining, shopping no reflection on the home itself or the owners/caretakers. Thank you Jody and Sharon - Linda and Tim.

Is this a luxury accommodation? No. Is it a comfortable and totally acceptable property? Absolutely. It was a pleasure dealing with Jody (the owner) and Linda (the “property manager”). We were immediately greeted on our arrival and shown where extra towels, etc., could be found. We found nearby shopping and restaurants easily. Several golf courses were nearby and downtown Ocala was an easy drive. Our (4 men - in our early 70’s - lifelong friends) main purpose for visiting was to attend a college football game in Gainesville (an easy drive). The covered pool was an added treat. Several small maintenance items had been overlooked; however, I would definitely consider visiting again.
