Great vacation rental!
This house worked so well for my family of 5. The beds were all comfortable, the kitchen nice and big, great water pressure. We were all very comfortable there. The few things I wish I knew were: 1 - the pool isn't heated. I think that may not matter too much, but the water was very cold and we weren't able to swim. 2 - they're stripping a huge amount of ground behind this property to build condos so there's a lot of construction truck noise. It didn't bother me at all, but it did bother my husband. 3 - how to turn off the closed captioning on the TV :)
I would stay at this house again anytime as, like I said, it's a great vacation rental.
Good to here you enjoyed house. I have no
control on the construction across street but it
is almost complete. Ocala had a cold winter
this year so pool is late heating up.
Thank You for renting our house.
Our Ocala stay
We really enjoyed our stay at Jody's place. Everything was very clean and the pool was perfect for us northerners. We enjoyed Saint Augustine and made other day trips. Mostly we enjoyed the pool and the great weather. We are thinking about going back next year.
It was a pleasure having you rent our house.
You were great renters. Thanks Dan for letting
me know of minor things you think would make
house even nicer. Hope to see you back next year.
Nice, Relaxing, Tranquil
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We were only able to use the pool a couple of days because the nights were pretty cool, but we did enjoy the patio every day. The home is on a very quiet cul-de-sac. The owners, Jody & Sharon are great. If you need something they respond immediately. The caretakers, Linda and Tim, live on the same street and likewise were excellent if you have any questions or need anything. We were in need of a Vet for our dog and they referred us to the one they use, we were very happy with them. The pics online are exactly as the home is. No surprises. We played golf often. One course, Lake Diamond, is literally walking distance. I walked home after playing one day. It is actually almost in their backyard. A few other courses also very close by. Upscale restaurants are a little bit of a drive as is any big shopping malls. Grocery stores, fast food, Walmart, pharmacy all very close by. We would return next year but unfortunately the month of March is already taken. Maybe 2020. 4 Stars only because of proximity to fine dining, shopping no reflection on the home itself or the owners/caretakers. Thank you Jody and Sharon - Linda and Tim.
Happy to know you enjoyed the house and
got to play lots of golf. Hope to see you back
in the future. Thanks Mike & Debbie
Spacious house in a quiet neighborhood. Near numerous walking trails and Silver Springs State Park. Convenient to shopping and restaurants. Bathrooms small, but adequate.
You were great renters to have. The walking trails are great near the house.
Thanks Bill & Linda and see you back next year
enjoyed our stay at this perfectly located pool house!!!! My granddaughter loved your swimming pool, we really had an overall great time
we will rent this place again if Jody will have us!!!!!!!!!!!!
Good to hear you and your grand daughter
enjoyed the house and pool. Of course
your welcome back. Thank You for renting.
Is this a luxury accommodation? No. Is it a comfortable and totally acceptable property? Absolutely. It was a pleasure dealing with Jody (the owner) and Linda (the “property manager”). We were immediately greeted on our arrival and shown where extra towels, etc., could be found. We found nearby shopping and restaurants easily. Several golf courses were nearby and downtown Ocala was an easy drive. Our (4 men - in our early 70’s - lifelong friends) main purpose for visiting was to attend a college football game in Gainesville (an easy drive). The covered pool was an added treat. Several small maintenance items had been overlooked; however, I would definitely consider visiting again.
Hi Greg , I agree the house is not a high end
expensive house. I do feel the house is
well worth the cost of the rental. Good to
here you did have a great time in Ocala.
Thank you for making me aware of the
minor things that need fixing. It will be done
soon. Thank You for renting.
