Leah and Gary were the best hosts we have every dealt with. They are very friendly and helpful. We were introduced to our neighbors and invited over for card games where we all became friends. Even though the weather was unseasonable cool, the warmth of the welcome we received made it better. They helped us find our way around also!
It was our pleasure to do what we can to make your stay pleasant. It is how we would like to be treated so that is why we try to make sure you are accommodated. We love meeting our guests and what we're doing. You were great guests as well. Please stay in touch and come again.
Loved this place!
We stayed at this cozy retreat for a family reunion. Great location, close to many attractions. You'll find everything you need in this property. You just need to bring your clothes and food and you're set! Leah and Gary are great, they welcomed us, made sure we got familiar with the home and even baked muffins for us. Would definitively stay here again!
Great place to stay near Ocala
We had a great time at this home near Ocala, Florida. We were a group of 6 and wanted a place where we could all stay together, and this was perfect. We used it as a home base to go kayaking on the beautiful Silver River and visit Silver Springs State Park. The owners were very nice, met us at arrival to show us around, and even made muffins for us! The house was the perfect size for our group, had a fully stocked kitchen, as well as a washer and dryer. I definitely recommend staying here if you are planning to go to the Ocala area. So much better than staying in a hotel!
We enjoyed hosting your family this weekend and are so glad you had such a good time in our area. We have so much to enjoy here we hope you come again in the near future.
Also we so appreciate the way you respected our home leaving it so clean. You are the kind of guests we love to have return time after time. We all have great memories of your visit. Thanks for being delightful guests and leaving such a nice note in our guestbook as well.
Looking forward to the next visit,
Gary and Leah Mix
Very nice and comfy & you can't beat the price!
Murphy and his family are always welcome back. They are perfect guests and we are looking forward to their next visit.
We had a good time. Neighborhood was safe and quiet. The owners were super nice and friendly. Two thumbs up.
Great Place, Even Greater People....
Totally enjoyed the stay in this House, it's roomy, quiet, cozy, clean and everything we needed was at the house... The owners are amazing really, guanine "good people". They gave us advice on a better way to get to our destination (Leesburg) and any other assistance we needed, we asked for dinner recommendations one night and they gave us lots of great choices in the surrounding area. Looking forward to next year.
Richard and his friends were delightful. We enjoyed meeting them and having them as our guests. They were very respectful and left our home very clean and complied with check out requests. We would love to have them come back and look forward to having them in the future. Hurry back.
We have many opportunities for equestrian events, Fl. Cracker festival, blueberry and strawberry festivals, and many art and quilt shows. You will find no lack of shopping whether you enjoy flea markets, antique, thrift stores or general shops. Ocala has a lot of history worth digging into and plan on riding the Glass bottom boats- Silver Springs or tubing on the Rainbow River. You are so close to either coasts, day trips to Gainesvile, Orlando, Daytona or Tampa will offer you so much more than time will allow. Then come home and rest easy after playing all day. So much to enjoy that you will want to come back again.
Check out OcalaMarion.com for more on what is happening during your stay. See you.
