Why Anne Meinel chose Ocala

This property was unspoiled, all forested, and offered opportunity to nestle the house among native trees and wildlife where nobody had cleared before. Maximum trees and native plants have been retained. Wildlife is appreciated and views are natural.

What makes this house unique

Architect designed and built this home to maximize the spectacular forest setting, using major glass areas to frame vistas from every room. Featured is a great room with ceiling slope matching the roof, bedrooms/baths on opposite sides of the living area. In this house you can experience the Florida wilderness in comfort and style.

Such a great little place for our 1 year anniversary getaway

  • 5 of 5
We arrived Friday morning and were blown away by how well kept this house it. So open and comfortable. The pictures are great but do it no justice. We brought our dogs with us and I think they may have enjoyed the property just as much as we did. Dont be worried about being woken early by the rooster. Even though its a quiet property and he is closest to the master suite, the windows are so well insulated that you barely hear him unless you are outside. At last moment we invited 2 of our closest couples and they will now be looking forward to returning with us next time. The cold tub was perfect to congregate in after a good BBQ dinner. We all explored the beautiful springs in the area. Everything was pretty close by without having to be driving forever. We recommend tubing at Rainbow River or swimming at Alexander and Juniper springs.

Thank you Anne. It was a pleasure to be your guest. It is a beautiful home. We were amazed as to the room sizes. Plenty of closet space in every room. The house is well established for kitchen, bath, and bedroom items. Our family did not want to stay in a hotel because we wanted quality family time without interfering with others. The landscaping is beautiful and the scenery is peaceful and relaxing. My family really enjoyed the amenities of the home and area. We would definitely stay there again. We definitely recommend this home to others

quiet rural setting

  • 5 of 5
This rental is neat as a pin and you will think you are in a five star hotel with all its' amenities. Colorful and bright but peaceful, really away from it all. Magically, still 25 minutes from the conveniences of Ocala and activities. Looking to have your son or daughter at the UF? This is the place to make your evenings and weekends?
Spacious Living area, lovely kitchen and baths. Welcome the little tree frogs who only visit your window at night! This little place gets five stars from me.

Wonderful, pet friendly vacation home!

Clean, quiet, peaceful home that has everything you need! Perfect home for families with pets, and our dogs had the vacation of their lives!! My husband and I enjoyed the hiking, golf, and kayaking in the area. We especially loved the trails right behind the house. We have already recommended this property to friends!

The house is just amazing and you can tell how much love went into it's planning. Anne was so incredibly helpful and greeted us at the door upon arrival. The house is immaculate and has everything you need. The grounds are just fantastic. We had our daughter's wedding ceremony behind the house backed up to the pond and watched her walk through the grapefruit trees that were in bloom. We set up two tents out front so we could have some pavement for dancing, and it went just fabulously! The trees make for a perfect backdrop and the horse stalls are great for photos! We saw some amazing wildlife while we were there. We visited Silver Springs, which was a blast! They now have an extended glass bottom boat tour and it's only $8.00 a carload to get into the park now that it is State owned! Anne was terrific about letting us rearrange things for the reception. The interior of the home served us perfectly with buffet tables set up and the artful touches around the house. Thank you for making my daughter's day so special. We enjoyed an entire week there and absolutely loved the area!!!
