About Cyndi Hamad
My mother, always a country girl at heart, purchased this unspoiled wooded acreage just before she passed away in 1995. It was a long range plan, but as 2016 closed, I completed the labor of love of turning my Mom's Florida woodlands into a lovely, relaxing, country vacation home. The like new 3 bedroom residence is nestled amongst pine and oak trees, is close to Rainbow Springs, the headsprings of the Rainbow River, the Nature Coast and it's manatees, Ocala's horse country, Daytona Beach and Disney's magical theme parks - yet it feels miles away from everything . . . Mom would be proud <3

great location, love the property
Stayed at this property on a tubing trip with a few friends for my husbands birthday. The place was perfect, accommodations were clean, convenient to tubing and about 25 minutes to downtown ocala. The firepit and grill were convenient to have also. Great getaway from the city. Would stay here again.
Thanks so much, Gabriella! You and your crew were perfect guests. Y'all are welcome anytime : )
Lovely and peaceful place
Not our first time in Florida but we never stopped in this area. The area’s waterways and trail system brought us to the region. We enjoyed learning about the dark Withlaccoochee river that flows south to North and the clear Rainbow river. These two rivers merge together and it is worth it to take a boat tour and see where they merge. During this tour, we also learned about the wildlife and history of Dunnellon.
I enjoyed seating outside and listen to the birds as well as walking our family dog at night and listen to the different animals.
Dysney is at 1h30 away from the house.
Cyndi always replied to our questions in a timely manner. The house has everything you need.
We have always felt safe even if the house is in a remote area.
Thank you Cyndi for sharing your home!
Anah, Nicolas and family
Thanks so much, Anah and Nicolas, for your kind, thoughtful review, and for being such gracious guests! It was a pleasure to have your family stay at our country place, and I'm so pleased you were able to take some wonderful memories home with you. Safe travels! Cyndi
Serene and peaceful...very close to Rainbow Springs park.
Our family spent 5 days relaxing in the quiet, country setting at Cindi's lovely home. We had spent 3 months helping with Hurricane Harvey clean up in Texas and this serene retreat helped restore us before heading back to New York. We enjoyed visiting Rainbow Springs and Silver Springs which are nearby. We loved the friendly, brown dog that visited us and played with us! We would definitely stay again!
Nice and quiet place. Perfect getaway place
Nice and tidy place. Very rural and quiet:)
Quaint and Rustic
All in all this was a beautiful property but being business owners and young adults we found it difficult to not use an excessive amount of internet lol and phones had no service which turned into a more peaceful experience in the long run ... Cyndi was an amazing host and made sure to check in with us and work with us ! We loved our stay in the country and will be renting again in the future! Thank you Cyndi So Much for your hospitality
Thanks so much, Molly! It was a pleasure having you and your family as our guests. Yes, Keepin' it Rural is definitely country - my Verizon phone works but my MetroPCS phone, I have to walk a block or two towards town to get a signal! Y'all were totally cool on the internet usage having the kids watch DVD's instead of streaming movies . . .I've had my laptop on all day without it using much in terms of gigs. The upside is, as you said, it is peaceful stepping back from being so plugged in . . . i always feel like I've stepped back in time to a simpler world : ) I appreciate how gracious and flexible your family was, and how well you took care of our place . ..ya'll are welcome anytime! Cyndi
Property had everything we needed! Beautiful open space with fireflies and plenty of space on the patio to look at stara and a firepit to enjoy quality time with friends and family.
