About the property

Luxurious Estate Home

Beautiful 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom, split and open floor plan with living room, formal dining room, family room w/ wet bar and fireplace, big screen TV plus TV's in each of the bedrooms. Comes with furnished kitchen, screened pool and patio, and sauna on one acre with large oak trees. Quiet neighborhood, but near shopping, dining, air boat tours, the Bay is within 20 minutes for great boating and fishing. Peaceful surrounding but close to Disney, Sea World, Universal Studios, Tampa, Orlando and Ocala. Enjoy the Rainbow River with some great tubing adventures, Crystal River and swimming with the manatees, Three Sisters Springs, antique hunting in some of the local small towns, great flea markets nearby. There is a private mother-in-law efficiency on the property that I use sometimes when the house is rented to guests. You won't hear from me unless you need me during your stay. I believe in your privacy as well as my own and I'm very easy to get along with. Treat my home with respect as you would your own.

About Owner/Manager

Fun loving retiree. Love to swim, shop, hang out with friends and travel.

My greatest joy is that you enjoy yourself while being my guest. Relax in the peace and serenity this area gives.

Why Owner/Manager chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

It's a quiet peaceful place to visit with lots to do or nothing at all. Tons of activities in all the local towns and you also have the quiet and peace of small town living.

Wonderful place!! Very clean and spacious!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here while visiting family in the area. We loved our stay. The place is very clean. Ms. Murphy was very pleasant and accommodating. Her house is beautiful and spacious. We were never interrupted by her during our stay. Everything worked perfectly while we were there. The pool was also very fun to swim in at the end of the day. We will definitely be staying here again during our next visit to Florida.

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The House was Very clean and Millie was wonderful. We had spent 5 nights at the premise and had used several of the residence amenities. Everything work flawlessly which made our family vacation very enjoyable. Definitely would recommend this location for a stay during Scalloping Season in Crystal River or relaxing days on the Rainbow River in Dunnellon.

Beautifully layout and location!

  • 5 of 5

The property and location are amazing. Millie greeted us upon arrival, then left us to ourselves until we had a minor issue with the grill which she promptly resolved. My family could not of asked for a better time.

This is not a rental. It is an old woman sharing her house.

  • 1 of 5

This is not a rental. It is an old woman sharing her house.

This house should not be listed as a rental as the woman lives in the home and then moves into the attached garage when guests are staying there. Her personal clothes are hanging in the closet her food is in the refrigerator and even her soap that she bathes with is left out while you're staying there. She wants to walk into the house whenever she feels like it without asking permission. She lurks around the whole time you're there. She made my daughter uncomfortable that she would not sleep in her own bed. If you are looking for privacy this is not the house for you. Again the owner is living in the garage which is attached to the house while you are staying there.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately, you are not acquainted with being a guest of HomeAway or VRBO and assumed certain things. First it clearly states this is my home and I live here when the house is not being used by a guest! It offers driveway parking (not garage). I have a mother-in-law suite there. It is locked off from the main house. There is no lurking and I don't consider myself an (old woman) Seasoned is a much better word. YOU texted me that the washer and dryer would not turn on, I texted you back that I would come in to see what the problem was since the circuit breakers kept popping.... Well I found the problem, "tons of commercial laundry in huge duffle bags all over the place". I was very nice to you about it and said it was inappropriate to use my washer and dryer for commercial laundry you brought from a resort in SC or NC. That was on the 7th of Oct. You became irate at that point and was very nasty to me. You checked in on the 5th, and the 7th is the only time I stepped foot in the house (laundry room only) and that was to assist you!!!! As to your comment that your 10 yr old daughter was uncomfortable.....I really have to question that also since the 2 or 3 times I even saw her she smiled and waved. I also made an exception for you since my profile on my home is "not suitable for children under 12 due to having a pool" and you SAID you were fleeing the hurricane. You had all the privacy you could want because once again, I must correct you, I'm hardy ever there. I do have a life and I live it.
