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
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.
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!
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.
Our daughter and her wife were recently married , live in Austria and wanted to come home for a wedding ceremony . They found this home on the rainbow river . The location is incredible with the river in the back yard. The home itself surpassed our expectations . We had the ceremony on the private island and a reception afterwards . The owner was a pleasure to deal with and made us feel at home. I look forward to renting again next year for a family re-union.
Decided to get my siblings together as it had been too long. Found this home and decided it looked like what we had in mind for the entire family. We had ages ranging from 2-70 and this place suited us all perfectly. The little private swim area entertained the little ones all week. We swam, boated and relaxed ( which was most important). Thank you for the good times in a great location. Will be looking to return.
I have rented this home 3 times and I will continue to do so as the owner is extremely cordial; the property is BETTER than pictured and the Rainbow River is by far one of the most beautiful places I have ever snorkeled/dived. We come every year and the property is so large and the neighbors are very friendly. Il
I am sorry to have to agree with the other review from July 24th. Although we did receive our deposit back and a bit of a refund or $200, it was little compensation for the condition of the house and our aggravation during our stay.
In addition to what the previous review spoke of we found that 3 of the air conditioners did not work, which made 2 of the bedrooms not able to be used, the kitchen counter top was gritty and dirty, and the refrigerator and freezer were problematic in that the freezer never really froze, the ice maker did not work and the refrigerator never got really cold. We were left with all of the TV remotes with old batteries that did not work, no extra toilet tissue and no extra garbage bags and only one garbage can outside to place garbage.
The day after we got there, the handyman came over to give us batteries, toilet tissue and garbage bags and extra garbage cans for outside. But we had to deal with the Sears refrigerator repair man, the air conditioner repair men for 2 days and the pest control man, which was very disruptive to our stay and not something that we as guests should have to deal with. The Air conditioners were never fixed during our stay.
The owner did come over during our stay also and was very apologetic for all of the issues, however I think she could have done more.
The house is in a beautiful location, with a lovely little sandy lagoon that my grandchildren loved, but the house itself is lacking.
The owner needs to hire a good cleaning service and perhaps a laundry service that can wash the sheets and towels in hot water. All of the towels need to be thrown out, the odor will never be able to be washed away. Many of the Air mattresses leak and should be thrown away.
I even asked the owner for a broom and mop, so I could clean the floor before I left, having little grandchildren that can be messy , but was told not to worry a cleaning service would clean. We did wash all of the towels we used and left all of the bed linens in the laundry room as requested.
It would not take too much change to make this house a wonderful enjoyable place to stay, but the owner needs to put in the time and effort and hire the right people to care for the house.
I hope she will make the effort, it is in a lovely location.
Renter beware!! This property is not as it appears in pictures. The property is full of ants, bugs, and mice! The beds are worn beyond belief, they sink in the middle and when stripped clean they were full of holes and stains. The propane tank was left empty for us. There was a snake den of water moccasins in the wood outside near the water. The back patio is full of spider webs and wasp nests. The house was filthy, not clean. The owner scheduled a landscaping bid while we were there and also came into the house without warning with all of our guests there! She walked through some of the bedrooms...who does that!?!? She requires YOU to wash and FOLD all the towels before you leave. She does not provide soap or hot water to perform this task. The towels we used all smelled like a dirty mop. I have stayed at much cheaper places that were cleaner, more comfortable, and rodent free. She charges top notch resort prices but does not provide the service or a clean place to stay. To top off the horrible conditions of this rental, the owner decided not to give me my deposit back after I informed her of the conditions of this house. Prior to renting this home we asked if our 15 year old chihuahua would be able to stay. She agreed that he had to be in a crate or in the screened in patio. We travel with him all the time and he goes where we go. We travel pet friendly, we don't violate rules or take him places he is not allowed. The day she came into the home uninvited I had removed him from the crate and held him. He never stepped foot on the floor or furniture and his crate was confined to one area of the home. Amber informed me that she stayed in the home right after us and her daughter had a severe allergic reaction so my deposit was going towards steam cleaning. This is all a lie, the calander for the days following were booked. I also want to mention that when we viewed the property the first time she had a large dog in the screened in area and a small dog in a crate inside the home. If her dogs don't cause an allergy, mine who wasn't near the child's bedroom or on furniture or carpet certainly did not. We would have NEVER stayed in this property if she had told us he was supposed to stay outside the whole time with the raccoons and other animals who roam the property at night. Save your $ and rent somewhere else that is clean and rodent free. I have pictures of the property and her mice deterents that she said were for bugs. I SAW a HUGE mouse myself!
