About Ramona

I am originally from Florida and grew up on the salt water. I recently found an old 8mm movie of me rowing a dinghy when I was 3 years old, although it was tied to the shore of the Anclote River. I lived in this house in Horseshoe Beach for 18 years; I now live in my childhood home on the river.

Ramona purchased this house in 1996

Why Ramona chose Florida North Central

The house is located on a canal with easy access to the Gulf of Mexico and some of the best fishing in Florida. Having lived here for 18 years, the home is designed and equipped to be lived in - not simply a place to stay.

What makes this house unique

Horseshoe Beach is one of the few remaining towns along the Gulf Coast that is still quaint, quiet, and laid back. The fishing, both inshore and offshore is great. Dixie County has approximately 40 miles of coastline with only 1 mile in private ownership; the rest is sawgrass and salt marshes.

Weekend Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Great weekend getaway at the cottage in Horseshoe Beach. The kitchen was very well equipped with everything. The local restaurant was still closed due to storm damage, so it was good to have a kitchen to make our meals. I love the decks for sitting outside and enjoying watching the birds while drinking coffee. Some boards had been replaced and it felt safe.

Very quiet, clean, relaxing and comfortable. Stars at night were very bright compared to other places.

Cute Cottage

  • 3 of 5

The Cottage on the Canal is a cute, comfortable place to stay. My only recommendation would be for the owner, Ramona to look at replacing some of the boards on her deck and also the railing. The railing is loose and if a lot of weight would be put on it, something bad could happen. Overall the cottage has that feeling of home and is well taken care of.
