Memories are made of this... Located directly on the spring fed Withlacoochee River and just 500 yards downstream from where it and the Rainbow River merge, you're in the very heart of Central Florida's "Nature Coast". In addition to our unit being directly on a scenic river, you’re also located in a quiet Dunnellon neighborhood and within easy walking distance to quaint shops and waterfront restaurants. With our ample amenities, scenic beauty, wildlife, and outdoor opportunities, you’ll experience an authentic Nature Coast experience when staying at our highly reviewed condo! (See More Details below ....)

               BRIEF DESCRIPTION - UNIT#B-23

You'll be staying in our one bedroom vacation rental condo (#B-23) in a very peaceful and exclusive condominium complex named "The Landings of the Withlacoochee". We're directly waterfront with a comfy Queen bed that sleeps 2 adults. Your cozy riverfront is tranquil and the surrounding landscaping is beautifully maintained. We're not overcrowded, so there's plenty of hot-tub seating, poolside tables, & sun-lounges always available!

Your condo, heated pool, and hot-tub are all located directly facing the river. We purchased the first unit sold and selected the one with the best scenic river view! There's also two separate riverside picnic areas where you'll find provided BBQ grills and picnic tables. You're invited to fish for your trophy catch from our riverside dock or fire up a grill, sip a favorite beverage, and feast riverside. Uniquely, there's also a river-walk for relaxing sunset strolls.

When you arrive you'll find the condo recently modernized ceiling to floor! The condo's bright interior is an uncluttered style and the large living room window directly overlooks the spring-fed Withlacoochee and tranquil pool area below. There are no stairs to climb to get from our ample off-street parking to your condo.

The condo has a fully equipped kitchen and strong central air & heating. There’s unlimited fast WiFi, flat screen (250 channel cable) TVs, and in-unit clothes Washer and a clothes Dryer.

We're the area's only vacation rental we're aware of that provides free super-early check-in starting at 9am and also late check-out by 1pm! (We can do this because we never overlap our guest bookings on the same day.)

Have a boat? We'll request your dedicated boat-slip and trailer parking space!

We pride ourselves on deep cleaning prior to each guest's arrival to ensure the condo is "sparkly clean". When it's time to checkout simply close the door on your way out…

To gain access, just enter the provided key code. Or if you prefer, we can meet you there to provide a quick tour of the property. Also, if you need to forward mail during monthly stays, we’ll provide you an on-site mailbox.

We're responsive owners who genuinely want you to have a 'five star' experience so you'll want to return !

Short term paradise

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful owners and the best place to stay to get to know Dunnellon. Booked this slice of paradise for 6 months due to a job transfer. Everything was was very accommodating and the boating and fishing were superb. Dave & Kate really make guests feel more than welcome. We miss this place already!

A Vacation Dream Come True!

  • 5 of 5

This is the third year that we have stayed in this condo. It truly is like being in a resort, with all of the amenities imaginable being provided. The view of our boat in its own slip in front of the condo, the location of the condo to so many good restaurants and the comfort afforded in the immaculately kept condo itself were all reasons for us to plan to return once again next year. What an outstanding place to spend a vacation-truly a perfect location to spend leisure time away from the hustle and bustle of everyday living.

Cozy Old Florida Living Full of Adventure and Lasting Memories

  • 5 of 5

Enjoy evenings in tropical Florida weather on your private porch looking down onto the river at it's wildlife & nature. You will enjoy gazing to your west (left) facing the river around 6:30 P.M until you retire inside for the evening being a spectator to "The Landings". There's a huge hoot owl mascot w/ a wing span of aprox. 5 ft searching for prey. A wonderful fishing dock but watch out, the younger baby gators love chasing your orange bobber (copy link into browser or click on it). Sport fishing is a must as there are big striped bass just a toss away! Bring a boat and park it in a slip (upon approval) or your own kayak or canoe w/ designated lot on the premises.

Huge turtles float by the boats near the docks usually swimming w/ companions.

The pool is very clean as well as the deck. There is plenty of furniture and tables for a bbq. The charcoal grill is furnished! The grounds are well manicured including the trees and bushes.

Most early evenings you will hear a symphony of: frogs, alligators and tones from the cicadas insects equally harmonizing together mastering a unique river scale.

A real comical treat occurs while you are on your porch at 10 P.M to 11 P.M. So, enjoy a beverage or two! A raccoon family of 5 including babies scout the pool deck. Get out the Gopro and film from above. Once they notice you watching, they hide under the furniture and peek, run, hide n' peek again!

There are full amenities in this cozy home. It's very clean and everything that you need is here. The owners become friends, allowing you your space. Anything you need is a call or text away. The willingness to provide information on the surrounding areas: Ocala, Crystal River only 30 min away, State Parks, shopping, restaurants & entertainment is very helpful. The west coast bay is 45 min so plan a day deep sea fishing, scalloping, blue crabbing or witness manatees. Bring your golf clubs and fishing poles as there is an attached outside room by the front door with a lock & key handle.

Gator watching is essential & exciting from the docks & the private 2nd level porch as you learn their "calls & sounds" alerting their own to either gather together or to beware...Enjoy this moment~L from Arizona

A beautiful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful setting for a vacation. The view was amazing, the people were friendly and the condo was immaculate . We really enjoyed the pool and the hot tub and just the general area where we were located in Dunnellen Fl. was great. Dave and Kate were accommodating and concerned that we had everything that we needed, which we did. We were close to restaurants and stores and things we wanted to do. It's a great little community. We can't wait to return for our next vacation.

This was a first time ever WOW Five Star experience for us!!

  • 5 of 5

We found the condo to be cute, clean and cozy. The view of nature is spectacularly serene. The amenity choices are widely diverse and within walking distance or short drive. And, best of all, we discovered Dave and Kate, the owners, to be a very delightful and down to earth couple who are honest hearted and sincerely care about the well being and comfort of their guests. We are ever so grateful to have located this little piece of paradise at The Landings along the Withlacoochee river and we happily look forward to returning here, hopefully in December.

If I could rate this 10 Stars, it still would not be enough!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful vacation we have had in this beautiful condo! This is like our little piece of heaven on Earth. The accommodations here are equal to those found in a resort-sparkling clean, convenient to all of our favorite restaurants, close to the bait shop and of course, most of all, on the Withlacoochee River, right around the corner from the beautiful Rainbow River. Our boat slip was directly in front of the condo, making it so convenient to load our boat for a day of fishing or just relaxing on the water.

The owners of the condo are most thoughtful and considerate, even calling to check to see if there was anything else that we needed to make our stay more pleasant. There was nothing, of course, as they had already thought of everything possible to guarantee a wonderful stay.

We look forward to returning again next year, and are already planning our next year's vacation here. We could never find anywhere nicer to spend our month away from our "part of the world".
