Lovely home.

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautifully decorated, extremely clean and had a great pool although you have to pay $25 per day to heat it in the winter. The kitchen was fully stocked with every dish and appliance that you would want. Really, very very nice. I would definitely recommend this home and would stay here again.

Beautiful home, wonderful setting

  • 5 of 5

We spent 10 days at the Villa, and loved every minute of it. Gorgeous home and nicely decorated. The pool and patio are perfect for the hot Florida days. There is a home immediately across the street (which had nearly no traffic while we were there) but no neighbors on either side of or behind the home, so it's certainly quiet.

We brought our boat and there is plenty of room to store it. There is a boat ramp on the Hernando pool of the lake system about 5 minutes from the home, so very convenient for those wanting to boat and/or fish.

Inverness is just minutes away, with plenty of shopping and dining options. Ocala, a substantially larger "city" is about 25 minutes away, up Hwy 200. In Hernando (<5 minutes away), Sabina's is a terrific "greasy spoon" (not meant in a derogatory way) with a wide range of options for breakfast and lunch.

Werner, the owner, was gracious in answering my many questions, both before and after booking.

We strongly recommend this property and look forward to our next visit. I am from Inverness and will definitely look to stay here on future trips.

Another relaxing vacation

This is our second year staying. It is the perfect spot to relax and decompress before another school year begins. Loved it.

Clean, well-appointed home with many extras!

  • 5 of 5

This property was a perfect little modern oasis! The pool was where we spent most of our time, and it was exactly what we were looking for and perfect for relaxing! The centrally run speakers throughout the house were SUCH a cool touch, and the instructions made it easy to hook up our phone and/or computer to play our favorite playlists. The home was VERY clean and well-kept, (the restrooms and showers are HUUUUGE!!!) and the back yard was plenty large enough for our dog to run around (under supervision, of course - the property isn't fenced in). The home was only about 20 min away from Rainbow River - a MUST SEE if you're in the area! While the home is located in a quiet neighborhood, you're only about 10 min from the downtown area. Downtown is small, but really quaint, and has quite a few bars and restaurants to hop around to on a Friday night. The check in process to get into the home was a little different than what we were used to, but that wasn't an issue, and the clubhouse personnel were incredibly welcoming and helpful! The owners are INCREDIBLY kind, patient and VERY responsive! We had a few questions upon check in that we emailed them about, and they responded within just a few hours. They're, hands down, some of the best owners that we've communicated with via HomeAway. We will definitely be seeking out this property again on our next trip out to the springs!

Very Cozy

  • 5 of 5

Lovely home and well appointed. It worked well for our family, and the kids loved the pool! Though I'd recommend renting a pool heater from the resort's main office. Warmer water would have enticed the adults to spend more time in the pool.

Next time we're visiting family in Inverness we'll definitely rent this home again.
