Why melissa calabro chose Dunnellon

My family and I fell in love with Sateke Village, in Dunnellon. Our kids especially enjoyed swimming in the river, and jumping off the dock, and they learned to be better swimmers as they were able to swim everyday. The water temperature is 70 degrees all year round. There are tons of outdoor activities to occupy everyone.

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with the safe community for the kids, the private riverfront access, we loved the fact that that rainbow river was the clearest water we have ever seen. The house had enough bedrooms for friends and family that would want to travel and be comfortable.

The Real Florida experience in a park like setting with all the comforts of home

  • 5 of 5

The large home was very comfortable and equipped with everything we needed for our extended stay. If you like clear sunning days, fresh air and being close to nature, it can’t get any better.

The house is on a huge corner lot sourounded by tall pine and oak trees with the Rainbow River just at the end of the street! We had the choice of eating at 2 tables inside or 2 outside and we used the BBQ most nights.

We used their kayaks and tubes to explore the beautiful area and swam in the crystal clear water.

The 2 bicycles provided were easy to peddle on the flat hard surfaces right next to a Florida State Park without any car traffic.

Wake up the the sound of native and migratory birds - we spotted 40 different kinds.

Dunnellon is a lovely town only 7 minutes away with all the services we needed ( a new Publix is opening). 20 minutes by car gets you to Ocala with additional restaurants, art galleries and shopping.

Who knew it was the horse capital of America? Every weekend is a National or International event including the Cup of Nations for horse jumping.

If you desire big city experience you can easily get to Daytona Beach, Orlando or Tampa.

Bernie and Melissa are great hosts and they provided us with everything we needed to enjoy our stay.

Best time ever on the River

  • 5 of 5

My daughter is 9 years old and she can finally Kayack this year and it was such a pleasant trip to go up the river from your dock. Thanks again for having us. This home has plenty of amenities. The Dock was so close.

Perfect Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Bernard and Melissa were available nearby and responsive, kind hostesses. The house is spacious and the bedrooms are large. There was nothing to disappoint an arriving guest, in fact it was more than I expected and the garage is full of equipment for enjoying the water. The private community entrance to The water is an easy walk, about five houses away, that is perfect for a boat launch, a picnic and especially great for its swim area that is perfect for the children, with sandy bottom and gently graduated depth.

I enjoyed walking trails in the forest at nearby Rainbow Springs. Within 10 miles you will find several accesses to the water for fishing the river, tubing with tram return, A bait and tackle, a grocery store and Walmart.

The neighborhood is small and very very safe. It is a tight-knit community with no outside traffic in which the neighbors ride golf carts and will quickly get to know you.

Great house in a quaint and friendly community. Property offers a lot of nice amenities, such as wifi, netflix, dvd's, and board games. The owner was great to work with and the house has a spacious floor plan that allows for large families to hang out. If ever back in the area will definitely go back to this rental.
