Our Condo directly faces the spring-fed Withlacoochee River and is located in "The Landings" in a historic Dunnellon neighborhood. The Landings are unusual because we're a small and exclusive condo complex, yet friendly. We're very different than the large crowded condo complexes common to Florida.

Our riverside setting is tranquil and beautifully landscaped! We have the only solar heated pool & hot-tub area that's also directly riverfront. The Landings even has its own private river-walk for your romantic evening strolls.

The condo has strong central air & heating for your comfort. There are no stairs to climb from our ample off-street private parking to your condo. And, if you want to forward your mail during your stay, we can provide you with a condo mailbox & key.


We are a One Bedroom with a comfy Queen size bed and upgraded linens. The bedroom has a wall mounted flat screen television with cable programming, a large dresser, nightstand, and a California style redwood clothes closet.

The bedroom has great natural lighting from its large picture window (has wooden blinds for privacy/night-time). There are plenty of clothes hangers, and an iron and ironing board is also provided.

The condo's bath is fully tiled and has a bathtub shower combination. Plenty of bath linens and pool towels are provided.


Our living room has a large window that directly overlooks the beautiful Withlacoochee River. The living room has a full size sofa and accent chair for seating. The cocktail table top also lifts up to become an informal additional dining area at the sofa. The living room has flat screen cable TV and there's strong unlimited high-speed Wi-Fi throughout the condo and porch area.

The river facing porch has comfortable adirondack chairs with a small table to enjoy stunning views of the river and pool area below while sipping on your favorite beverage or surfing the web. There is also an enclosed storage closet on the porch for your golf clubs, suitcases, etc.


The kitchen has a raised snack bar with seating for three. It also has the full range of appliances including frig, range/oven, dishwasher, microwave, blender, crock-pot, and a Mr Coffee. A Keurig K-Cup coffee maker is also provided with ample K-cup samples.

Our condo has all the amenities, dishes, cookware, and linens to make your stay a treat! If there is a unique kitchen gadget or similar item you use and don't see, just call us and we'll get it!

Unlike many condo units which share a common coin laundry facility, we have our own new in-unit LG clothes washer & dryer that we installed just this year!


Have your own boat? Tell us some boat size details in advance and we'll request a free dedicated boat slip for your entire stay and a parking space for your trailer!

There is also a riverside storage area if you want to bring your kayak or canoe.


We are located directly on the beautiful spring fed Withlacoochee River and just downstream from where the Withlacoochee river and Rainbow river merge. These rivers are a popular Central Florida destination to swim, snorkel, canoe, picnic, or stroll.

At 'The Landings' we have several riverside BBQ and picnic areas as well as our own river-walk. The condo is within easy walking distance to several restaurants, shops and multiple antique stores in Dunnellon’s historic district. Our waterfront location provides guests a great outdoor experience as well. There are boat tours, golf courses, bike trails, and parks nearby.

Dunnellon is in the heart of Central Florida and centrally located.

The University of Florida in Gainesville is only a 50 minute drive

Homosassa Springs & The Villages are within 40 to 45 minutes

Crystal River & Ocala are within 25 minutes drive

We're just ~90 minutes to Tampa/St Petersburg & Orlando attractions.

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".
