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.

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.

Veteran's Day Vacation

  • 4 of 5

Three couples, all retired Air Force, spent the long Veteran's Day weekend here. Both the owners and the property manager (lives across the street) are friendly and very responsive. The house is in a quiet neighborhood, close enough to town to be convenient, but far enough out to be peaceful. The house was comfortable, the yard was well manicured, the pool was pristine, the pool table provided hours of entertainment. Paddling Silver River and exploring Silver Springs State park never disappoints - and we did see the monkeys this trip! Definite thumbs up.

Very Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We chose this home because we just wanted a little R & R and maybe take in some sight seeing. I'm glad we chose this one because it was like being at home away from home. The home was very appealing! We loved the way it was decorated. The pool area was awesome! We spent most of our days relaxing at the pool. This home is located in the perfect location to just about anything you want to do. We will certainly come back! The home managers were very helpful and welcoming. If we needed anything, they were there! Thank you guys! We appreciate it.

Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this lovely home for 8 nights and absolutely loved it. Everything was exactly as stated. The house is beautifully furnished and extremely comfortable. It was such a pleasure doing business with Birgit the owner. We would love to stay here again when we are next in the Ocala area.

What a wonderful property!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for 6 days visiting our son. This is place is much better than even the pictures indicate. Immaculate house and so comfortable .... you will really find yourself feeling like you're at home.

The pool is super clean with a wide variety of toys in the bin located on the lanai along with enough seating for at least 8 outside.

Whatever you need is already there, games, puzzles, pool table, books, magazines...etc.

Also, if you want to visit around holidays there is more than enough kitchenware to dress a formal dinner.

The property manager was also very pleasant to us and gave us tidbits on the "things to do" in Ocala.

I've already let them know that this will be my property of choice for all future visits.

Thanks again, Sakie and John, San Jose, California
