Relaxing vacation home.

  • 5 of 5

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.

Wonderfully Comfortable and Felt Like Home!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in this property and loved every day that we were there! Property manager was very welcoming and Jody was terrific! Our 7 year old son has been afraid to learn to swim because he has been embarrassed to learn in front of others.....this was the perfect opportunity! He learned how to swim in his own time and at his own pace in the very pleasant private pool in the back! (And the adults loved it too! :) ) I highly recommend this property for rental and we do plan to be returning to this property on our next visit!!

Great vacation rental!

  • 4 of 5

This house worked so well for my family of 5. The beds were all comfortable, the kitchen nice and big, great water pressure. We were all very comfortable there. The few things I wish I knew were: 1 - the pool isn't heated. I think that may not matter too much, but the water was very cold and we weren't able to swim. 2 - they're stripping a huge amount of ground behind this property to build condos so there's a lot of construction truck noise. It didn't bother me at all, but it did bother my husband. 3 - how to turn off the closed captioning on the TV :)

I would stay at this house again anytime as, like I said, it's a great vacation rental.

Owner's Response: Good to here you enjoyed house. I have no control on the construction across street but it is almost complete. Ocala had a cold winter this year so pool is late heating up. Thank You for renting our house.

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.
