"Perfect lake house. Pictures don't give this property justice. Such a quaint and quiet location. This house has everything you can image. We will be back often with the pup. The owners are fabulous and very easy to work with. I highly recommend this property."

"We stayed here three months. A great writing retreat with easy access to colleagues at the U of Florida. The large fenced backyard with spreading live oaks was relaxing and safe for little kid visits. The house was spacious and very comfortable. The neighborhood is lovely -- perfect for daily walks and bike rides. Friendly, helpful neighbors made us feel at home. A short walk or 5 minute drive will get you to the wonderful Fresh Market with its ever-changing array of desserts and fresh sushi, an authentic French bakery, the all-purpose Publix grocery, and an intriguing used book store. We took side trips to the Gulf (Cedar Key), St. Augustine, Manatee Springs, and a variety of state parts where we encountered eagles, wild horses and baby alligators. Disneyworld is a day-trip away. Gainesville weather in January and February can be surprisingly cool, even cold, but the house was well heated and always comfortable."

"AMAZING! Our family enjoyed the home very much. The owner Cathy is very helpful and has a lot for you do. Paddleboats, ping pong, board games, volleyball, noodles to swim on, fish food to feed fish. Screened back porch was great, we sat outside a lot. We had a fire in the fire pit. We brought along our dog and she absolutely loved the totally fenced in yard. She would also swim with kids. Very quiet and a great get away from the real world. Cathy provides WiFi and dish tv. We will book again. Thank you Cathy for your hospitality."

"This house is new and impeccably decorated! Super beautiful and elegant, but yet is a quaint, solidly built 1 bedroom home. The owner couldn't have been nicer and more accommodating! We have rented more than a dozen VBRO rentals and I think I can safely say, Mary was the warmest, kindest, and most helpful we have ever experienced. Besides allowing our 2 little dogs, she welcomed us upon our arrival, made sure we had everything we needed, helped us out with favors to the extent we left her a thank you gift upon our leaving (Wow, she's great!) and when we forgot our dog's bed, she promptly mailed it back home to us. We were in Gainesville for my daughter's orientation at UF and the house is a bit of a "hike" to the University, but for the price, cleanliness, and beauty of the house, it is worth the trek if you have the time to enjoy some country living on a pretty lake. We will definitely be back over the next four years and would absolutely recommend this home to anyone."
