My husband, our 5 kids & I had a blast. This place & land are so AMAZING. It's a quite place to just relax & hang out with the family. The house inside is unbelievable beautiful. The whole place is just set up so wonderful. Our family can't wait to go back & spend time at this place again. We LOVED IT & LOVED our time we spent there.

“Wonderful family get away”

Reviewed 4 Jan 2016

This cozy chalet provided a wonderful get away for two families (and an uncle) who often travel together. The loft was a perfect place for 4 teenagers to hang out. They even enjoyed the "balcony" view during family movie time. The porch was a wonderful place to get away from life and just be lazy as the neighbors (the 4 donkeys) stopped by. Robert the care taker and Mario the owner were very accommodating for all of our needs including installing a ramp for one member of our party who is disabled. The property is wonderfully in the middle of nowhere with miles for walking. It's also close enough to Manatee Springs and Cedar Key which made for excellent outings. This was a wonderful way to end 2015 and begin 2016.

Owner's reply: Thank you very much Amy. We really appreciate your review.

“Fabulous property”

Rancho Victoria, is the best chalet rental we ever have. We have enjoyed to the maximum our long weekend, and delighted the rural environment of the property. The surroundings together with the wild life made our stay unforgettable.

“Absolutely Awesome”

Reviewed 21 Dec 2015

Best family vacation ever! The facilities were clean and very well kept. It was all the owners said it would be and more. Quiet, peaceful surroundings, great for walking and biking. Great family time and still able to keep in touch via WiFi. Enjoyed the open grounds for safe, fun shooting. Will be planning a return trip. Thank you Mario and Victoria.

Owner's reply: Thank you Denise. We are very glad you and your family enjoyed Rancho Victoria.

“Fantastic place!”

Reviewed 11 Mar 2014

We rented this lovely place for three weeks in February, as we were in Ocala for the HITS horse shows. It was delightful! Not only was it immaculate and comfortable, the setting is simply lovely. It is within a gated community so even though it is remote, I felt extremely safe, and I spent about a week there before my friends arrived. It is close to the towns of Bronson and Chiefland so it is easy to pop into town and buy groceries and it was about 35 minutes from the HITS showgrounds. I loved it, and the owners couldn't be nicer. They were extremely accommodating. I would stay here again, absolutely.

Owner's reply: Thank you Margaret. We appreciate very much your review.
