About Jody Riddle

My name is Jody Riddle and my wife and I bought

this house to have a winter home to live and get away from New England winters when we retire. Our plan for now is to provide a nice home for people who want to visit Ocala.

Jody Riddle purchased this house in 2010

Why Jody Riddle chose Ocala

Ocala is a Central Point to visit Gulf and Atlantic Beaches. Disney World all within

2 - 3 hours from home. Daytona Beach less than 2 hour drive.

20 minutes from Ocala National Forest which has Canoeing, Kayaking, Swimming

and other outdoor sports.

Food , Gas, Pharmacys, Super Walmart , Golf are all a short drive. 30 minutes from Ocala's well known horse farms. 7 miles from Downtown Ocala.

What makes this house unique

House has large private yard and is in a nice neighborhood. Private pool and screened in patio to relax or take a swim. Major highways close by to get you where you want to go. Having a 2 car garage is a plus.

Being at the end of cul - de - sac there are no homes on either side of home.

We recently rented this home for a month, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. This is the third time we've rented this home. It is located on a cul-de-sac in a quiet neighbourhood.The house is very comfortable and the in ground pool and deck is wonderful. The owners are great to deal with and are very accommodating.

Is this a luxury accommodation? No. Is it a comfortable and totally acceptable property? Absolutely. It was a pleasure dealing with Jody (the owner) and Linda (the “property manager”). We were immediately greeted on our arrival and shown where extra towels, etc., could be found. We found nearby shopping and restaurants easily. Several golf courses were nearby and downtown Ocala was an easy drive. Our (4 men - in our early 70’s - lifelong friends) main purpose for visiting was to attend a college football game in Gainesville (an easy drive). The covered pool was an added treat. Several small maintenance items had been overlooked; however, I would definitely consider visiting again.
