Welcome to our vacation house in Florida!

Ocala with the nearby Ocala National Forest is known as the horse capital of the world and is home of Kentucky Derby winners. If you love horseback riding this is the right place for you.

Enjoy the Silver Springs State Park which is very close to the house with dozens of springs and the Silver River. The area has the largest artesian spring formation in the world with 72 degrees warm crystal clear water all year round. Numerous other rivers are nearby such as the Ocklawaha River, the Rainbow River and the Santa Fe River which all meander through a stunning wilderness. So enjoy kayaking, snorkeling and swimming. These Springs are in reach: Silver Springs, Rainbow Springs, Silver Glen Springs, Juniper Spring, Salt Springs, Blue Spring, DeLeon Springs, Alexander Spring.

Just minutes away from the house you find access to the Cross Florida Greenway and the Marshall Swamp, a jungle-like wilderness. With lots of trails they offer a paradise for bicycling, hiking, roller blading, birding and wildlife watching.

Across the road is the Diamond Golf and Country Club, with 18 holes to play and the title 'Highest Slope Rating' in Marion County.

Goethe State Forest with it´s 23 miles of hiking trails and 41 miles of horse riding trails is only 40 miles away.

Supermarkets, drug stores, other stores such as a Walmart Supercenter and gas stations are also just around the corner.

You are within a radius of 80 miles or less to Orlando with all the amusement parks and outlet malls, as well as to Daytona Beach and to Crystal River. St. Augustine, the oldest continuously occupied European-established city and port in the continental United States is 85 miles away.

This beautiful bungalow is furnished, smart and comfortable. There are two double (queen) bedrooms and one twin bedroom. Master-bedroom has a big walk-in closet. Both bathrooms with a walk-in shower. The master-bathroom also has a bathtub. There is also a big kitchen, a recliner sofa, a double rocking recliner loveseat and a 50' flatscreen LED TV.

Enjoy the nice private pool and the roofed patio.

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

This home is just as beautiful as it looks on here. The owners have everything in the house that you would need to stay as long as you need. It is large enough for 6 people or more to stay and not get in each others way. Scatters the fox squirrel will come out everyday. The art work of the the wild life that the owners have taken is absolutely beautiful. I rent a from VRBO 2 times a year in different areas around the U.S. and this is the nicest place I have stayed thus far. I would definitely come back if I ever have a reason to stay in the area again .The only thing I would change is to get some more comfortable mattresses or maybe just a nice topper for the beds. Thanks again for allowing my family to stay in your beautiful home.

OUTSTANDING

We so much enjoyed the house. All the activity we did was so close to the house. Our grandchildren love the pool and didn't have to share with other guests. WE ALL HAD A BLAST. THANK YOU SO MUCH.

Can't wait to come back!!

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from vacation, and already can't wait come back! Such an amazing home, it makes you feel at home. The property managers Tim and Linda made the stay that much better! Made us feel incredibly welcomed, and helped out anyway they could. They gave us great tips about fun, local stuff to do! Loved the covered outdoor, swam day and night.. everyday! Couldn't get enough, and the boys couldn't get enough of the other pool room! Impeccable rooms, clean house, and the couches.. probably the most comfy couches I've ever had the pleasure of watching tv on! Can't wait to spend another vacation in this house! Thanks again Tim and Linda for everything!

Fantastic area

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week in this lovely home, that has everything you need to relax in the beautiful Ocala area.

Very close to Silver Springs State Park, where we enjoyed Kayaking on the Spring. The scenery on the back roads was also unbelievable. We managed a nice trip out to Weeki Wachee, to see the mermaid show.

We really enjoyed hanging out by the pool, and in the comfy Sofa's at night. The property managers Tim and Linda made our stay really pleasant, and where so nice to talk to. Their dog was a big hit with the kids.

Close to Walmart and other shopping.
