About Amber

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

Why Amber chose Dunnellon

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.

What makes this house unique

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!

Great property with a great location!

  • 5 of 5
Our group of eleven stayed a week at this Rainbow River home, three families in all. We couldn't have asked for a better location, the house was perfectly situated, close to grocery stores, restaurants and the Rainbow River State Park. We had ample room to spread out, as well as, come together for meals. The kitchen was well appointed and large enough to accommodate multiple chefs simultaneously. The pool table, fire pit and kayaks were put to use daily. The crystal clear waters were amazing. We saw fish and otters every day just sitting at the back of the house! Our kids (ranging in age from 6 to 15) were never bored. Tubing, kayaking, swimming, fishing, boating, what more can you ask for? Great family vacation!

great house, river so refreshing

  • 5 of 5
We came over for our annual scalloping trip but wanted to stay away from the coast as the mosquitos can be quite nasty in the summer. We found this location to be close to Crystal River (35 minutes) but with the added benefit of the Rainbow River providing a refreshing way to relax after we had finished our morning scalloping. The private stream out front is a perfect place for the kids to play and we floated many times down to Swampy's - 45 minutes to an hour on tubes is just perfect. If you want a longer float you can go up to the State Park and put in there. The house was big enough and we came with three families and never felt crowded. The large round dining table is so great - no other VRBO house we have rented had close to this much seating for a meal. I think we got 14 people around the table. If you bring a boat just know that it's on a dead-end road with no turn-around but the yard is big enough to pull in if you are good at driving a trailer. We only ate one meal out - at Swampy's - and it was very good... better than we expected. We would definitely rent here again.

Relaxing, fun

  • 5 of 5
The kitchen was well-stocked and equipped to cook for a good-sized group, though we brought plenty of paper goods so we didn't have to spend all weekend doing dishes. Loved the water access, the kayaks, the bridge... beautiful location. We played plenty of pool, were in the water all weekend, and were grateful for this property.

Would stay there again in a heartbeat!

  • 5 of 5
This house is beautiful, well-maintained and has an incredible open layout. I was there with a few friends for my 30th birthday and we all had a wonderful time. You open the back door and you are right on the water, but still a little bit away from the crowds doing the main river float, so you have privacy. We would tie our floats to the deck and just have a big float/swimming party right outside the house. I would suggest it for any group because the inside is big enough that people can spread out. Great perks are the pool table inside and big dining table that we could gather around for dinners.

Great place!! Great times!!

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic time at the river house! The home is very nice and spacious. (We had 16 in our group with plenty of room to spare) The location is superb and the river is beautiful. The inlet makes it very easy to get on your rafts or tubes for a pleasant 45 minute to an hour float to the bridge, where we parked a truck to get back to the house, but it is also walkable. We also fished, canoed, kayaked, had a friendly pool tournament, played cards at the very large table, had a bon fire....we simply had a blast! We will definitely rent this house again in the future!

AMAZING location right on the Rainbow River!

  • 4 of 5
This house has some absolutely gorgeous qualities to it - most importantly, the location. It is sitting on a narrow inlet between the mainland and a privately accessed island, but off the main traffic of Rainbow River. The house is right on the edge of the river with some beautifully clear shallow water that leads to a small bay which leads to the River. There are two kayaks and a few blow-up tubes/chairs however one kayak had water inside that we couldn't get out. The outdoor area has a table with chairs and a few extra comfy chairs to sit and lounge in by the river. There is an screened-in porch with some outdoor furniture as well but we actually never used it. A nice grill on the deck too. Inside the house was a little disjointed. A lot of unfinished work, things unpainted, we had a whole bathroom that was gorgeous on the inside but didn't even have locks on either doors! There is a beautiful master bedroom (with no closet) with a king bed, two rooms with a full-size bed, an unfurnished room with a few blow-up mattresses to use, and an upstairs loft that has a huge open window to downstairs. The king mattress in the loft was extremely uncomfortable and there were cords all over the place, with a random single sink. Not finished. Two full bathrooms and one half bathroom all downstairs. The towels were stained and very used. But the kitchen was fully stocked (not enough wine glasses) and a beautiful, functional place to prepare our meals in. The VRBO pictures showed beautiful high-backed chars at the bar and table, however those were completely gone. We had to sit on very uncomfortable, cold FOLDING METAL chairs at the large dining room table. Not nice. But the house also had a beautifully decorated reading nook, a fully stocked pool table, and a stunning outdoor fire pit in the front of the house with plenty of plastic adirondack chairs. Pros and cons for sure. But simply because of the perfect location, we would definitely come back again. Oh, it is on a dead-end road so minimal traffic, and Swampy's down the road was a fantastic place to eat.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and for choosing my home! Would like to address a few of your helpful suggestions. We have put locks on the bathroom doors and put in new dining room chairs. We had complaints that there was not enough room for large gatherings with the amount of "bulky chairs" we had so someone suggested folding chairs to increase the amount. We are back to larger chairs :) The bed upstairs is a sleep number mattress and that is why there are cords. They are to adjust the firmness of the bed-we do have the WIFI upstairs so that could be the cord comment as well. The master bedroom closet has been cleared out and is roughly a long 10x50 room that can now be used as a closet or 6th bedroom- again with air mattresses as that is the usual request for children. This home underwent an extreme restoration and we do still have some minor finishing touches but in by no means does that take away from the beauty of this home and the priceless land it sits on. In time these minor touches will be addressed and we do hope you come back soon.
Regards, Amber & Maya Serena
