Great place for relaxation

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a place to relax and unwind this is the perfect place. So quiet all you can hear are the birds singing. Very spacious and well equipped.

Fantastic Time!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and family, a total of about 16 people were invited to celebrate our 30th Wedding Anniversary some stayed at the house and others stayed at a near by hotel that was pretty convenient. It was the perfect spot. The house had plenty of room to set up a photo booth, Karaoke stage, and a large cake table. The kitchen was awesome too. The lake was beautiful and we had a photographer take some awesome pictures. The house was perfect. Would definitely stay again and recommend to others.

Beautiful home, amazing lake. Great place for fun!

  • 4 of 5

The house was absolutely beautiful. Every year we have a reunion with friends and this is the first year we tried a Homeaway property. Darlene was vey accommodating, she answered all my questions and was very responsive. We had a great time on the lake. The kids played in the water all day every day, the kayaks were a huge hit. The adults played volleyball and ping pong and the hot tub was enjoyed by all. The dock made for lovely sitting at night. The house was big enough for everyone, no one felt crowded and the kitchen was amazing to cook in. We would absolutely stay again. The only thing that could have been improved on was the house was a little understocked. There was not enough silverware and plates for everyone to eat together so we ended up buying paper, no big deal. There were no ping pong balls, and no dish soap. The laundry was really nice to have but the washer is a little rusty and some of our white things came away with a rusty tinge. All in all we had a great time, it was our best reunion to date.

Ice maker in Fridge not making ice

Air mattress doesn’t hold air – had to buy a new one

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for this input..... It really helps us make improvements. All issues have been addressed and corrected. Since we own the property management company, we are happy to announce they have been corrected within a 48 hour period. The kitchen bar top holds 3 chairs comfortably ... 4 is a tad crowded... There were 3 at the bartop; however one was a substitute as the usual chair for that space had been repaired the day of your arrival and construction adhesive was curing. (this chair was on site in the shed). We encourage our guests to call us with any issues as soon as possible as we have a team of 6 people on staff to assist with issues in a highly expeditious manner. We were happy to take care of your issue of squeaky interior door hinges and dispatching a workman within 24 hours to apply oil to the interior door hinges. We take pride in this property and it's 10 YEAR HISTORY AS 5 STAR / EXCEPTIONAL ratings..... and we make every effort to provide our guests with nothing less.

What a great vacation home. Very clean, beautiful furnishings, and anything you would need. We spent a month at the lake house and cannot say enough good things about it. We have stayed several years at Lake Weir and this is the best place by far. The owner was very pleasant and serviced the TV projector promptly. Fishing wasn't great but caught a few bass on the large lake and even saw lake otters. Beautiful home and hope to come back again. Would definitely recommend to friends and family.

Wedding weekend

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home! This house is great! Very inviting, clean and comfortable. We've rented many other properties over the years, but never had one where so many supplies had been made avaiblle. The added convience was appreciated. Our daughter's wedding was in the Ocala area October 24. We traveled from Dallas TX, along with our other grown children. The relaxing morning coffee on the dock was a great start to our busy days in town. The hot tub on the deck was a perfect way to end our enjoyable days. This property would be a wonderful getaway just for relaxing or spending time with family.
