House and property is very nice, quiet and secluded. House was very clean and had everything we needed. There was plenty of room for our large family gathering. Owner was more than accommodating. We are already thinking about coming back next summer.

Wonderful Property

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this secluded and very private property. The house was well appointed and served us well for a family birthday function. It has a huge screened in Florida room with lake access and three good size bedrooms. The lake does not have a dock access from the property, but we could see boaters and paddle boarders enjoying the water. The house itself was very clean on arrival and Larry provided us easy directions. We did bring a grill per another renters recommendation. Our dog truly enjoyed the freedom to roam, although you are in the woods so you should keep an eye on your pets. It was close enough to UF so our daughter only had a short trip to spend some time with the family. Bring your grill and all that you need because it is a little out of way if you forget anything. We had a wonderful time and will book again in this great home with a super location

Clean and beautiful! “Home away from home”!!

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this property! Mr. Bullock is extremely nice, responds quickly, and very accommodating! The property is secluded and quiet, very peaceful, but yet we were only about 20 minutes from town. We came to town to bring my Dad to the Gatornationals as a surprise 60th birthday gift- my mom, dad, brother, and my husband and daughter all came and stayed together. We enjoyed many hours on the covered porch playing Uno, laughing and making some wonderful memories! And what a view of the lake! The home is stocked with all of your essentials plus more. It is super clean, smelled wonderful and very comfortable! We will certainly rent this home again if we ever get an opportunity to come visit the area.
