About Darlene Gottus

I am a real estate broker in Citrus County and love my job. There is always someone new to meet. We moved here from Miami in 1997 to get away from the fast paced way of life and crime. Citrus County is like a breath of fresh air.

Come experience why we chose Floral City. You will love it.

Darlene Gottus purchased this cabin in 1997

Why Darlene Gottus chose Floral City

This is our guest cottage on our farm where we raise Red Angus Cattle. We are part of the growing Agri-Tourism trend of city dwellers wanting to refresh their systems and experience nature at its best. Our personal guests all love to come here and stay so we decided to share it with others when it is not in use by family and friends.

What makes this cabin unique

There is a sense of peace and serenity here yet we are so close to everything. Come find out for yoursel why we love it here.

Escape to Floral city

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. We did a lot of hiking and bird watching and visiting family, but it was so good to come back to the cottage and relax on the porch. The museum in Floral city was great for information on the local area itself . Also the rail trails were great for walking and biking. There are many restaurants in the area along rt41 and also at Inverness. The cottage and surrounding area was quiet and the owners very friendly. The weather was great too! Thanks for a great time.

Great Stay !

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was a great starting point for us as we visited relatives and friends in FL. It was always nice to come "home" and relax in the quiet countryside. Everything was as expected and we would definitely return someday.Owners were very friendly and accommodating. Thanks for a great experience !

Slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

Just what we desired! We were pleasantly surprised to find this gem on VRBO. Everything was right – the price, the size, the surroundings.... We enjoyed viewing the cows, cranes, turtle, deer and on our last day saw a wild pig run across the pasture. The inside of the cabin is simple and sweet and all that we needed. We love the ease of smaller places. The bed was extremely comfortable with nice sheets and blankets. Having laundry on site was helpful. The kitchen has just what you need without being cluttered with gadgets you don’t. We’d recommend this property in a heartbeat and hope to be back ourselves!

Great way to relax

  • 5 of 5

After spending the month of February in this very special place, we feel totally relaxed and ready to shovel some more northern snow. The cabin is tucked away in a beautiful setting and offers quiet times on the wrap-around porch, the most comfortable living and sleeping accommodations and comes completely stocked with anything one might need in the very large kitchen. Everything was sparkling clean when we arrived; TV reception was excellent and having a washer and dryer definitely a plus. We found the owners to be extremely caring while allowing us complete privacy. Although the cabin feels remote it is just a short drive to libraries, shopping, entertainment and Florida attractions. We enjoyed the flea markets, auto racing and restaurants in the area. Internet service is readily available at local libraries and nearby citrus groves provided fresh fruits and vegetables. This vacation spot is definitely on our "do-it-again" vacation list.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your time with us. Makes me feel good to provide a place for others to get away to. Especially our friends up north that need a break from the cold.
