Sandi and Ken purchased this house in 2007
We moved here from Key West Fl. We wanted more space and larger property. Motor cross, my son and husband raced a lot; and all the lakes, rivers , springs made the transition easier.
We fell in love with this house and neighborhood because of the space and location. My guys actually made a MX track in the front pasture. The 9 acres of property allowed us lots of motorized toys, our 'Keys' back yard couldn't accomidate.
We Also needed to be on the water. Our lake is awesome! Spring fed, and no gators!
Ocala and The Villages are close by, but I love living in the 'forest'..
Ocala and the villages are 20 min away in opposite directions.
I can't say enough good things about this incredible hideaway. The Klozas were great hosts and had all manner of nice little touches and goodies awaiting me and my part upon arrival. You would never realize that they live upstairs and they respect your privacy well. Sandi was always available and quick to respond with questions. The hot tub was great and under a nice covered porch so the rain didn't bother us. The property is gorgeous and the inside space is huge and full of opportunity for fun. The beds were so comfortable and well kept. Everything was just great! I only wish I had more time to spend there!
We had a group of four sharing this space for a girls weekend visiting friends and a horse show in the area. The apartment was very roomy and provided a clean, quiet getaway for us. Two of us enjoyed walking the mile around the lake each morning and the games were perfect for an impromptu game night. We played pool and ping-pong while taking turns for showers - so much nicer than a hotel! Everything is there that you might need; not a full kitchen but close enough. We had dinner at a friend's house one night and after a trip to a grocery store for the food, everything else was there to prepare a salad including a tupperware and lid to borrow to take it with us. While we went out for most meals, everything is there to prepare a full breakfast or lunch and even a simple dinner. The lake is beautiful and the area is very quiet. I slept on the pull out sofa, which was pretty comfortable, and awoke to birds singing outside my open window. The other beds were comfortable, according to my friends and the bathroom was very spacious. There is plenty of room to have a quiet place to yourself if needed. We would highly recommend this to anyone; we would stay here again when /if in the area in the future.
What a wonderful Christmas Vacation! Thanks to Sandi and Ken's accommodation, my families
had an unforgettable week in this picturesque lakeside paradise. We went kayaking in the Silver Spring, snorkel diving in Crystal River, and horse riding at Ocala. We also enjoy swimming and paddle boarding at the lovely front lake. We believed our pet, Milu, also enjoyed running freely and thought he was the king of the spacious grass field!
Every night, we had intense crazy foosball tournaments (open double). Monopoly competition also drove us crazy. But hot tubbing under stars always help us relax before a nice and sweet sleep. My families had such a wonderful time! Thank you so much, Sandi and Ken.

What a great property- family friendly and very welcoming. We enjoyed playing the board games, ping pong and swinging by the lake. The owner was exceptionally nice and available. We were in town to visit my father-in-law and enjoyed our 4 day stay.
We had a great stay. The owners went out of their way to make sure we had everything. We ran into several afternoon rain storms but there were so many activities in the apartment that we enjoyed. They had a great inventory of board games, a pool table, ping pong and darts. Between rain showers we ran down to the water to swim and kayak. We were kicked back and we enjoyed all the comforts of home. The local lakes and springs were beautiful. When you plan your visit make a stop at the owners restaurant Kickn Back. The food was delicious and the staff were friendly. We would rent this property again.
My family had a very relaxing time! Well needed! My husband really enjoyed the fishing. My boys and me really enjoyed swimming and floating in the lake. Loved the ping pong pool
table and darts! The accomodations where
great! Very roomy!!! Really nice!
Ocklawaha River, and Lake Weir boat ramps are minutes away.
Silver Springs, Alexander Springs, and Juniper Springs close by.
