Property description

Welcome to the famous 'Grey Belt', also known as Florida's Nature Coast.

This air-conditioned 3 bedroom / 3 bathroom villa is located at Cornell Lake Estate in Citrus County at the Lakeside Golf & Country Club and is only a 5 minute drive away from the golf course. The golf course has an excellent restaurant, bar and outside terrace and is well managed by a Dutch hotel conglomerate called "van der Valk".

This 2000 sqft villa has two garages, a screened-in courtyard and a screened-in pool deck with a heated salt water pool.

The large living room is nicely decorated with contemporary porcelain floor tiles and has large glass sliding doors opening up to the lanai and pool area.

The master bedroom has a king size bed, ceiling fans and an en-suite bathroom. The master bathroom has hardwood cabinets, large shower, toilet and two vessel sinks.

The second master bedroom has a queen size bed with ceiling fans and an en-suite bathroom. This bathroom has a shower/tub combination, toilet and a large vanity.

The third bedroom has 2 twin beds and its own separate bathroom with a shower, contemporary vessel sink and toilet. Ceramic floor tiles can be found in all bedrooms and bathrooms.

Linen and towels are all provided for your convenience.

The kitchen is nicely equipped with a stainless steel refrigerator, stove and dishwasher and the back splash is decorated with modern glass tiles. It offers all you need to prepare a gourmet meal for your family and friends and includes toaster, coffee machine, ice maker, Whirlpool reverse osmosis water filter system, iron & iron board.

The washer and dryer are convenient located in the mudroom which is adjacent to the garage and kitchen.

The pool deck is very private and the south facing heated salt water swimming pool can be accessed directly from both master bedrooms, the kitchen and the living room. The lanai has a tile floor, two ceiling fans and a hardwood teak dinning table well suited for an enjoyable dinner party of six. Lounge chairs will complement the pool set up for a relaxing day.

Digital cable TV with a Panasonic HD television and access to our wireless internet. Internet telephone available to make free phone calls within the USA and Canada.

This villa is well maintained and situated on an 0.5 acre lot.

About Citrus County

The villa is located in a small town called Inverness, which is located north of Tampa and north-west of Orlando. The city of Ocala - famous for its race horse breeding - is 20 miles to the east and for all you Gators fans, UFL is less then a hour drive. This is your golf walhalla as there are so many golf courses in the area, too many the choose from.

We recommend ( and personally played all these course) the following championship golf courses :

Lakeside Golf Course ***
Skyview at Terra Vista in Hernando. ****
The Oaks and The Meadows at Citrus Hills (this course has a fabulous tiki bar) ***
World Woods Golf Club in Brooksville. *****
Juliette Falls in Dunnellon. ****
StoneCreek Golf Club **** and Candler Hills **** in Ocala.
Twisted Oaks in Hernando. ***
The Spruce Creek Preserve Golf Club in Dunnellon. **
My personal favourite, Southern Hills Plantation in Brooksville. ***** This course is a must play !
Not recommended : El Diablo in Citrus Springs and The Dunes in Brooksville. They are closed or often in terrible shape.

Suggestion : Orlando has numerous 5 star golf courses, however they can be very expensive in the high season.

Let me chip in a few golf tips for what it is worth. First of all, tee time bookings, GolfNow website has daily tee time specials so we strongly suggest checking their website. Read the online review about any golf course in the area, because sometimes the Golf course website has deceiving pictures, but most importantly the course conditions vary by the month due to course maintenance, weather and climate conditions. As an extra bonus we will provide you with two 'ExecGolf' cards, which gives you rebates on 21 of the best courses in the area and access to a few private and semi-private courses. Your first round on each course will cost you just $26 including the golf cart. It has to be said that green fees are relatively cheap compared to the northern parts of the US and Europe. Golf cart fees are mostly included in your green fee.

An other attraction and often overlooked is horse back riding, because you are close to the 'Horse Capital of the World', with more than 70,000 acres of thoroughbred breeding and training farms in nearby Ocala. During the winter months professional riders participate in the 'Horse in the Sun' circuit performing at Hits Post Time Farm in Ocala, Florida from mid January to mid March and during the year the Ocala Breeders Sales (OBS) holds half a dozen live auctions at which thoroughbreds are bought and sold.

For the true boating enthusiast, our property manager can book/schedule reservations for boat rentals at the TradeWinds marina in Homosassa. The Homosassa river has direct access to the Gulf of Mexico, where the waters are warm and crystal clear. Visit and explore the sparkling clear springs and rivers that allow for snorkeling, fishing, tubing and boating. In the winter you can swim with manatees, they can be found in the warm waters of shallow rivers, bays, estuaries and coastal waters. Rarely do they venture into waters below 68 degrees Fahrenheit. There are many beautiful state parks and preserves in the area for those that enjoy a walk through a forest, a view of a swamp and encounters with many birds, reptiles and animals of the area.

Orlando with all its shopping and outlet malls, Disney World, Sea World and Universal Studio's is an hour drive away as well as the beautiful beaches of Clearwater and Daytona.

Orlando International Airport and Tampa International Airport are 1 hour and 15 minute drive from the house.

Sporting events can be visited throughout the year in Florida. We have NFL teams in Tampa, Jacksonville and Miami. MLB in Tampa and Miami and do not forget that the majority of the MLB teams have spring training camps in Florida. College football (Gators) can be found close by in Gainesville. The PGA and LPGA tour plays several events early in the year in Ocala, Palm Beach, Miami, Orlando, Tampa and Jacksonville. Orlando City Soccer Club will start its MLS franchise this year and their home games will be held in the Citrus Bowl. Lastly the NBA, the Orlando Magics play their home games a hour away from the villa in downtown Orlando.

For the race fans and bikers, you are in for a great drive from the villa to Daytona Beach through the Ocala National Forrest to finally reach your destination, Daytona Beach. Daytona Bike week is scheduled in early March, NASCAR has several race throughout the year in Daytona and in early April the Grand Prix of St. Petersburg is held, which is an 1,5 hour trip.

Lastly, we have a property manager available to take care of any issues that might occur during your stay. Our property is also convenient located (20 miles) from the most famous retirement community in the USA, The Villages.

Finally, may our home be your second home. May those you love be near you in thoughts and dreams. Even though we may not get to know you well, we hope that you will be comfortable and happy as if you were in your own surroundings. May God grant you peace and rest while you are under our roof and when you leave, may your journey be safe.

Feel free to contact us even if your preferred dates are already blocked in the calendar, because we might have an other villa available.

Keep in mind there are no gates and/or fencing surrounding the pool.

Children under the age of 14 are not permitted to use the pool without parent/guardian supervision and are the sole responsibility of the individuals responsible for these children.

The owners are not liable and we can not be held responsible under premises liability law and we are not taking any responsibility for pool related accident and ensuing injuries.
