Very comfortable, loved the kayaks and location

  • 4 of 5

Nice condo, close to shops and restaurants. pretty setting. Having use of the kayaks was a real plus. A recommendation would be to have a DVD player and a small library of DVDs, books and games available for rainy days. We were also disappointed that communication couldn't have been a little better - we wanted to rent again for the same time next year, but were not given first refusal which seems to be the norm for every other property in the area.

Owner's Response: We are happy that you enjoyed your stay in our condo and liked the surrounding area. The apartment had already been reserved for the following year before you arrived for your first stay in the condo. We are sorry about the disappointment. We will take your suggestions and will place a few items into the condo for rainy days. Thank you.

Nice

  • 4 of 5

The location of the property is amazing ... the local area interesting with good restaurants and sites. The condo could have been cleaner and utensils/pots & pans more upgraded. Overall, nice, comfortable and very pleasant. Worth the stay.

Pleasant Trip

  • 3 of 5

The condo was nice and clean with all the necessities needed. Everything on the property was kept neat and clean. The outside of the condo was a bit rustic and could use a fresh coat of paint. It would be nice to have a bathroom at the pool area. Also, the place to launch the kayaks was so overgrown with vegetation that we were unable to use the kayaks. We spoke to another permanent resident about it and she agreed that very few people if any were able to use it and the kayak launching place needed to have something done to it so people could launch the kayaks. The use of the kayaks was a selling point to us and it was disappointing when we were unable to use them. I did report it to the owner at the end of our stay. We also had trouble with the TV signal. It would often interrupt programming because it was searching for a signal.

We enjoyed tubing down the Rainbow River, going to the few shops in the historical district, Jon's pontoon boat tour, visiting the historical Presbyterian Church, a trip to the beach at Crystal River, and a day of shopping at the mall in Ocala.

A comfortable and restful vacation

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the matthiessen's VRBO. Everything was clean and comfortable. We had fun on the river with the kayaks. the pool was perfect and actually had very few guests. Thanks to a notebook left by the owners full of information about restaurants and sightseeing locations, We enjoyed early morning walks, antique shops, fishing off the dock and breakfast at the Front porch. We will definitely return to visit here.

The condo was nice, parking was always easy.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this condo while horse showing just north of Ocala at the HITS Horse Show. We were there for about three weeks and everything was good. Nights were quiet and there is a nice waterside dock/deck with a charcoal grill to use. The two story layout with a loft two baths was nice as it provided a bit of privacy when getting ready in the morning or night, which is always a challenge in a hotel. Overall a nice place and we would consider staying here again.

We enjoyed our stay at your condo. Everything was very clean and the kitchen was well equipped. The people staying at the condo were very friendly and welcoming. Reasonable golf in the area. We went kayaking on the Rainbow River it was really beautiful.
