Fishing with Buck

March 19, 2012

We have stayed in the house twice 2011 and now 2012. It is great accommadations. The house is very clean and in a quite area. We will be back year after year. You are close to everything when you stay in Buckhead Ridge. We love the house. You can catch fish right behind the house in the canal. I have stayed in several places in Okeechobee but by far this house is the best. If you like to fish Okeechobee Fishing headquarters is close by and you will have the time of your life if you hire Buck for a fishing trip. We caught 205 Bass in three days a 6 pounder a 7 3/4 and 8 pounder and the largest was 9 3/4 pound. It don't get much better than this.

A great place to stay

February 28, 2012

This property was great. We stayed in unit 1193, the front unit. It is one of the nicest houses on 9th St in Buckhead Ridge. We loved the location. We fished Lake O out of Indian Prairie, Okee-Tantie and the levy boat ramp at the intersection of Hwy 441 and Hwy 78. It was very centrally located. The interior is all tile and very new and clean. Thank you Carol for a wonderful place to spend the month of February.

GREAT PLACE TO SPEND 3 MONTHS! Since we are a couple that enjoys the outdoors, the deck was wonderful. Great for grilling, fishing, or just relaxing. The duplex is located on a quiet street and has some very nice neighbors. Joel is very easy to deal with.

outstanding vacation rental

March 1, 2010

2 of us came down from Alabama to fish a Bass tournamnet. We had some issues on another place to stay. I found this place on the internet and am I glad I did. This place is excellent. It is almost brand new. It sits on a quiet street. No problems with security, It was very clean. The pics on here that you see do not do it justice. We will no doubt use this place again if we go to Okeechobee and it is availiable. The owners are very easy people to work with.
