About Amber

I purchased this home in 2011 after falling in love with the Rainbow River, the crystal clear spring fed water took my breath away. The land that this home site on is truly priceless and I am excited for you to experience the wonder of this magical place.

Amber purchased this house in 2011

Why Amber chose Dunnellon

Years ago as a child I visited the Ichetucknee River in northern Florida and I promised myself that one day, if I ever found a place that beautiful again, I would buy it and build my dream home. Thankfully I found it and now I would like to share it with you.

What makes this house unique

The land this home sits on is truly unique. Almost every home on the Rainbow River is directly on the main flowing river where there is constant tuber traffic and noise. My house is set off the river in a crystal clear lagoon (not Blue Cove) with a private clear large stream that runs through it. Plenty deep for swimming but smaller children love it because they can stand and enjoy in the fun. You can see the tubers floating by and you can reach the river by swimming to it in less than two minutes. You will love the privacy of your own oasis. This home is a must see!

Spring Break 2015

  • 5 of 5

This place is remarkable. The house was great. The privacy and the Island were awesome. We went with a group of parents and children during our spring break and had a wonderful time. Not only was the house great, but the town and the river were beautiful. We spent 3 nights and 4 days and no one wanted to go home. Plenty of room, plenty of amenities, plenty to do. And if you want to do nothing, you can do that as well. We posted photos as we were there and no one believed we were in Florida still. Hidden Gem and we didn't want to tell many people our secret location. We are planning the same for next year and adding a night or two. The place was great.

Great location on Rainbow River

  • 5 of 5

The owners were pleasant and available if you had a question. The place is awesome and the house is great. Plenty of room for everyone. Certainly had your privacy. The Lagoon was great for those who needed to get some practice before going on the river. Quiet and peaceful. If you just wanted to relax and take in the surroundings you could do that too.

10 out of 10 ..i highly recommend it..just got married here and it was beautiful

  • 5 of 5

The owners were pleasant and the house was amazing..we were married on the private island with my huge bridal party of 15...We loved the scenery and the bridge was amazing to take pictures on..The house had 6 spacious rooms to accommodate our guests with 2 and a half baths...the master bathroom was incredible but tricky with 3 bedrooms entering into it..our favorite was the grand staircase to the upstairs bedroom with grand balcony..we definitely would rent this home again and I am sending pictures to the owner just so others can see how wonderful and useful this property really is...
