For the past 12-13 years we have rented a Florida home to get away from the cold and snow in Pa. We have stayed in the panhandle & the keys along with places between. Few years ago we found what is now our favorite area centered around Dunnellon. This Jan - March we stayed at this lovely home in Sateka village, a small delightful neighborhood on the Rainbow river. Didn't take us long to feel at home. I should mention the neighborhood is great for biking or walking. The Rainbow river of tubing swimming or boating.
There are lots of wonderful things to do but I will leave that to you to discover.
The house has everything we could ask for and more. Property was clean and well taken care off. It is a comfortable house to live in. Owners Andre and Lori Jaundoo are the best as is Lori's mother who lives a few houses away.
The neighborhood is very nice and all the neighbors are great, friendly and helpful. About a week after we arrived a neighbor stopped by to welcome us and invite us to their monthly luncheon at a local restaurant. Met a lot of nice folks.
Our favorite restaurant is Lombardo's a short ride on Rt 41...
Many golf courses to choose from. Rainbows End a nice 9 hole course and Juliette Falls and really nice & challenging course that's just 8 minutes away. Also close by is Spruce Creek Preserve, be sure to play during your stay. A short 20 - 25 minutes away is Pine Ridge and Twisted Oaks. Twisted Oaks is one of my favorites. Many more...
Good fishing abounds... Withlachoochee River and Lake Rosseau is my favorite but some say the Rainbow is really good to...confluence of these two rivers is a short float downstream from the house. Short trip to Crystal River and Homossassa offers great salt water fishing.
We rented it for next winter...January 3-thru April 3. The rest of the year is yours...enjoy!
