SCENIC 'RIVER'S END'

Come find your slice of heaven.... Our scenic riverfront residence, "River's End", is unique!

River's End is a modern condo and its scenic views give an impression of living between sky & water.

Located in the heart of Florida's Nature Coast, River's End is situated in a historic neighborhood and within "The Landings of the Withlacoochee" private residences. We're within easy walking distance to quaint shops and waterfront restaurants. And with its scenic beauty, wildlife and outdoor recreational opportunities, River's End guests are provided an authentic Nature Coast experience.

Most Florida condo complexes are large, concrete & impersonal, and located in overcrowded communities. However, here within "The Landings of the Withlacoochee" we're a private riverfront that's quiet, exclusive, and friendly. Our riverside setting is indeed tranquil and the landscaping beautifully maintained. You won't hear traffic sounds here!

The spacious pool & hot-tub area is located directly riverfront with sun loungers and tables with large shade umbrellas. There are two riverside picnic areas where you can fire up the BBQ grill, sip your favorite beverage, and feast riverside. With plenty of private boat slips we also have our own River-Walk for relaxing sunset strolls over the river.

DETAILED CONDO DESCRIPTION

When we decided to purchase a vacation home to enjoy during our approaching retirement years, we spent most of our weekends searching for the ideal location. We had several specific criteria... Our ideal location had to be:

1. Located in a tranquil and secure neighborhood, yet convenient for an easy walk to shops & restaurants

2. In a condo complex that's not crowded and impersonal, and in a peaceful community without heavy traffic

3. Waterfront & scenic, with lots of amenities, and have private docking for our boat

Finally, after almost a year of searching, we found "The Landings of the Withlacoochee" in charming Dunnellon and aptly named our beautiful riverfront condo there "River's End"....

We've focused on decorating our interior to ensure it feels fresh and modern, yet cozy. Our bright interior is an uncluttered style that directly overlooks the spring-fed Withlacoochee River. The living room and covered terrace provide stunning sunset views of the river and pool/spa area below!

When you arrive you'll find River's End recently modernized ceiling to floor! To gain access simply enter the provided key code. Or if you prefer, we can arrange to meet you at the condo to welcome you in, provide a brief tour of the property, and answer any questions about our amenities, local restaurants, and attractions.

River's End has strong central air & heating for your comfort. Unlimited high-speed Wi-Fi is provided throughout the condo and terrace. Even though we are one floor above the relaxing pool and spa area, there are no stairs to climb from our ample off-street parking to your condo.

As owners, who now live just 20 minutes away, we're very responsive to ensure you have a 5-Star experience while staying in our condo! We pride ourselves on deep cleaning prior to each guest's arrival to ensure our home is "sparkly clean". When it's time to checkout simply close the door on your way out!

If you want to forward your mail during longer stays, we can provide a free private mailbox.

LIVING/DINING ROOM

Our living room with its over-sized windows directly overlooks the beautiful Withlacoochee River and Pool area one floor below. The living room has a full size sofa and accent chair for ample comfy seating.

There's a bistro dining table that seats up to 4 and expands for entertaining.

The living room cocktail table top easily swings up to become a laptop area or as a surface for snacks while watching TV.

There's secure high-speed/unlimited Wi-Fi (50Mbps) throughout the condo. There's also flat screen TV with 200+ Channels of cable programing.

OPEN KITCHEN & LAUNDRY

The open kitchen has a raised breakfast bar with seating for three.

The kitchen has the full range of appliances including: refrigerator, range/oven, dishwasher, microwave, blender, mixer, griddle, crock-pot, toaster, and Mr. Coffee.

Short term paradise

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful owners and the best place to stay to get to know Dunnellon. Booked this slice of paradise for 6 months due to a job transfer. Everything was was very accommodating and the boating and fishing were superb. Dave & Kate really make guests feel more than welcome. We miss this place already!

A Vacation Dream Come True!

  • 5 of 5

This is the third year that we have stayed in this condo. It truly is like being in a resort, with all of the amenities imaginable being provided. The view of our boat in its own slip in front of the condo, the location of the condo to so many good restaurants and the comfort afforded in the immaculately kept condo itself were all reasons for us to plan to return once again next year. What an outstanding place to spend a vacation-truly a perfect location to spend leisure time away from the hustle and bustle of everyday living.

Cozy Old Florida Living Full of Adventure and Lasting Memories

  • 5 of 5

Enjoy evenings in tropical Florida weather on your private porch looking down onto the river at it's wildlife & nature. You will enjoy gazing to your west (left) facing the river around 6:30 P.M until you retire inside for the evening being a spectator to "The Landings". There's a huge hoot owl mascot w/ a wing span of aprox. 5 ft searching for prey. A wonderful fishing dock but watch out, the younger baby gators love chasing your orange bobber (copy link into browser or click on it). Sport fishing is a must as there are big striped bass just a toss away! Bring a boat and park it in a slip (upon approval) or your own kayak or canoe w/ designated lot on the premises.

Huge turtles float by the boats near the docks usually swimming w/ companions.

The pool is very clean as well as the deck. There is plenty of furniture and tables for a bbq. The charcoal grill is furnished! The grounds are well manicured including the trees and bushes.

Most early evenings you will hear a symphony of: frogs, alligators and tones from the cicadas insects equally harmonizing together mastering a unique river scale.

A real comical treat occurs while you are on your porch at 10 P.M to 11 P.M. So, enjoy a beverage or two! A raccoon family of 5 including babies scout the pool deck. Get out the Gopro and film from above. Once they notice you watching, they hide under the furniture and peek, run, hide n' peek again!

There are full amenities in this cozy home. It's very clean and everything that you need is here. The owners become friends, allowing you your space. Anything you need is a call or text away. The willingness to provide information on the surrounding areas: Ocala, Crystal River only 30 min away, State Parks, shopping, restaurants & entertainment is very helpful. The west coast bay is 45 min so plan a day deep sea fishing, scalloping, blue crabbing or witness manatees. Bring your golf clubs and fishing poles as there is an attached outside room by the front door with a lock & key handle.

Gator watching is essential & exciting from the docks & the private 2nd level porch as you learn their "calls & sounds" alerting their own to either gather together or to beware...Enjoy this moment~L from Arizona

A beautiful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful setting for a vacation. The view was amazing, the people were friendly and the condo was immaculate . We really enjoyed the pool and the hot tub and just the general area where we were located in Dunnellen Fl. was great. Dave and Kate were accommodating and concerned that we had everything that we needed, which we did. We were close to restaurants and stores and things we wanted to do. It's a great little community. We can't wait to return for our next vacation.

This was a first time ever WOW Five Star experience for us!!

  • 5 of 5

We found the condo to be cute, clean and cozy. The view of nature is spectacularly serene. The amenity choices are widely diverse and within walking distance or short drive. And, best of all, we discovered Dave and Kate, the owners, to be a very delightful and down to earth couple who are honest hearted and sincerely care about the well being and comfort of their guests. We are ever so grateful to have located this little piece of paradise at The Landings along the Withlacoochee river and we happily look forward to returning here, hopefully in December.

If I could rate this 10 Stars, it still would not be enough!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful vacation we have had in this beautiful condo! This is like our little piece of heaven on Earth. The accommodations here are equal to those found in a resort-sparkling clean, convenient to all of our favorite restaurants, close to the bait shop and of course, most of all, on the Withlacoochee River, right around the corner from the beautiful Rainbow River. Our boat slip was directly in front of the condo, making it so convenient to load our boat for a day of fishing or just relaxing on the water.

The owners of the condo are most thoughtful and considerate, even calling to check to see if there was anything else that we needed to make our stay more pleasant. There was nothing, of course, as they had already thought of everything possible to guarantee a wonderful stay.

We look forward to returning again next year, and are already planning our next year's vacation here. We could never find anywhere nicer to spend our month away from our "part of the world".
