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.

A Perfect Ten

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for us. The Owners And Managers Were most helpfull with answering any questions we had as to Churches, food shopping etc. The house was very comfortable and well kept. The heated pool was just beautiful so relaxing on the very warm days. We were very disappointed that we could not rent for next year because it was already booked. We would like to thank Denise and Brain for always being there for us. We hope to stay there again.

A Lovely Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed a very relaxing vacation in this spacious, well-appointed home. Being cooks we appreciated having everything we needed to take advantage of the fresh seafood and luscious strawberries which were in season. The central location of this property is a distinct advantage if you like exploring the "real" Florida away from the more usual tourist haunts. The owners and property manager were very helpful and courteous and we highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a place to be happy and comfortable.

Our Stay in Ocala

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time in Ocala last month. It was so nice to stay in a beautiful home in such a nice neighborhood! It was refreshing to feel at home, away from home, sharing meals together without having to always go to a restuarant. My wife and I and our brother and sister enjoyed relaxing together here at home, as well as seeing family and playing tourists.

We fully intend to do this again!
