Perfect for our family visit

  • 4 of 5

We have family living in Ocala, but when all branches visit, we need more space. The Riddle property was perfect. It was clean with everything we needed. We exercised in the pool every morning. For our joggers, there was an endless sidewalk across the road in the back. My husband loved the recliner. This the first rental that he has not complained about the comfort of the livingroom furniture. The only reason I give it four stars instead of five is the twin beds need new mattresses.

Good Value in a Great Neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I rented Jodi & Sharon's house for two months this past winter. We have two little dogs and were looking for a place with a nice yard. This house is in a very nice neighborhood - houses are well maintained, the neighbors are all friendly, and the area is wonderful for walking and biking. We especially enjoyed the Marjorie Harris bike trail nearby, as well as our trips to Silver Springs and Don Garlitz' Drag Racing Museum. The house is comfortable, with all the essentials. Not all new, but everything works. We did not use the pool (too chilly in the winter), but we enjoyed the screened lanai and the barbecue. Lots of shopping and restaurants nearby, and the Ocala area is lovely.

Piece of paradise in Ocala!

  • 5 of 5

This house was in a perfect location. Close to so many restaurants and grocery stores - made it so easy to feed the whole family and end enjoy all the amenities of the house. The bedrooms were great and the pull out couch even helped us out one night with guests. The kitchen was full of every day items that helped us cook and feed everyone. Cooking at home kept the weekly food budget well under control. The screened in pool was so nice - even in October. The TV had good cable and the WiFi was strong for use all over the property. The sound system plays indoors, outside and/or both at the same time. This let our parents read and relax inside while we enjoyed the pool and music channels from the cable tv without disturbing anyone. The back porch made for a wonderful breakfast area and we had no problem with the washer & dryer in the garage. The showers were clean, strong and full of plenty of hot water.

We will absolutely be checking on this house anytime we come and visit the area again. Our favorite pizza was Ricardo's down towards Belleview. Excellent NY style pizza and nightly specials had us visit twice.

The owner was super easy to deal with and helped us enjoy our stay in any way we asked. Can't wait to come back. Thanks Jody!

Great house

  • 5 of 5

Very nice, clean house on a quiet street. Had a great, relaxing time. Nice to sit in comfort after a weekend in a golf tournament at Golden Ocala. Linda was awesome, you have found a great lady to watch over your home for you. We are looking forward to being in the tournament again next year and renting from you again. Thank you for everything.
