About Marta Ring

We currently live in Richmond, VA. We are a family of 5, three teenaged boys! They can't wait to spend time at our new home and bring all their friends for lots of water fun.

Marta Ring purchased this house in 2014

Why Marta Ring chose Florida Central West

When we saw this property we fell in love - have only had the chance to spend a couple of weeks, and didn't want to go home! The view is spectacular, and to see dolphins swim within 20 ft of you is breathtaking

What makes this house unique

Great location on a quiet street and calm water. Upper deck above the boat lift for great viewing and sun. Enclosed pool. floating dock. Large family room with 180 degree views.

Awesome Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented several homes on the gulf and this by far was the best ever! This home was more than we ever expected. The pictures do not do it justice. The location was perfect. The view phenomenal! I can not say enough about this experience. The owners are awesome to work with. We know we will be back!

The moment we turned the key & stepped into home we knew it was truly perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Simply the best choice on the water with pool and views ! We did enjoy dolphins everyday and was greeted by the dolphin the first moment we walk near water. Kids were thrilled . House is perfect for kids as well . My Husband and our 3 kids and mother n law all stayed in home . There was more than enough room for individual space and activities for all ages . The white deck is perfect for mornings and evenings . Pool is perfect all day and the fishing was an all day\night event for my sons and hubby . They caught snapper ,sea trout ,tarpon ,stingray ,pompano & then some . We hit the Walmart before check in which is 5-8 min from house .Safe and great location for home and for activities in the area .We called and made reservations to canoe at weeki wachee springs with paddle adventures which is located at Buccaneer springs. They were great ! Very simple instructions and then you enjoy 5 miles of gorgeous spring . Then you take a bus back to car after trip. Also one day we went to Buccaneer Bay . So affordable and fun to see a mermaid show,boat ride ,slides and swim in a natural spring for one full price! $13 for adults $8 for children. My husband and I ate at Brian' s Place for our anniversary . Amazing drinks food and desserts with live music outside. We also ate at Zigzags which was great for the family and great menu. We really took a risk renting this house as we weren't to familiar with area and location. We love how its not overly commercialized and still had some old Florida charm. They house was great with views ,space ,activities and some surprises that weren't mention in format . Truly home away from Home! Marta is simply so kind speaking to and very patient with any questions you may have. Its breathtaking and all rooms in home are great ! Pics of home have nothing on how beautiful the home truly is .Thank you again for sharing your beautiful home with us!

Incredible views- great rental

  • 5 of 5

This house as it all, a pool, water views, Wi-fi, TVs, games and more. We had a a great time kayaking in the canals and fishing on the docks. We spent every morning watching the Sting rays on the second story deck. We typically take a cruise for our vacation but after staying here we won't be cruising anytime soon. Great owners and a great rental! I Would recommend this property all day long. Thanks so much.

super rental property

  • 5 of 5

This is best furnished and equipped rental house I've ever seen and the house itself is super cool. Usually when I stay at a vacation rental I can think of a list of things I should tell the owner to improve it but not here...has everything...even spare light bulbs. The furniture and lighting are great, the beds (well we just used master bedroom) was great. The cable TV and wifi worked fine and nice tvs all over even outside in pool area! We did not get to use pool or hot tub due to chilly weather but would def recommend requesting it be heated if warm enough to swim. I can't say enough good things about Marta and her family....met her family when a bad storm broke pier loose and they came over right away to fix the hinge. Over all I give it a top rating. Oh yes! we saw lots of dolphins and an otter came occasionally to eat crabs on the pier. Would be super for warm weather rental. The best.

Well maintained

  • 5 of 5

This is my second stay at this house, and I can not wait for my third stay. I was there second week of December, and the stay was as great as it was in April. The owners are great to deal with. Again thank you for allowing us to make this our home when we are in Florida.

The Area: The home is located 10-minutes from the Weeki Wachee Springs and the Weeki Wachee Water Park. Canoe and Kayak rentals are available at the Weeki Wachee Water Park as well as two other locations on the river. The Weeki Wachee River is a State of Florida park. The park is famous for the Mermaid Show! Check it out, at They have Flume rides, the 'Lazy River'. A very popular part is called 'Lil' Mates Caribbean Cove'. It is a pool reserved for kids 6-years and younger. It is a great water play area that is supervised by trained lifeguards so 'mom & dad' can relax while one of the pro's does what is needed.

The river is crystal clear and in the low 70's year round. It is a pristine Florida river. During the winter (summer too) Manatee swim up the river and are often seen by those going up and down the river. Wildlife abounds along the river and you may see otter, raccoons, osprey, hawks, alligators and other wildlife. The river is also excellent for a 'float' on a raft or inner tube. The Buccaneer Bay water park is very popular with the young set. This park offers thrilling water flume rides, river boat rides and a white sandy beach.
