Ocala is one of the most beautiful parts of Florida. Its rolling green hills, horse farms, oak trees and enchanted Spanish moss give it a truly magical feel.

Known as “Brick City” due to its beautiful downtown architecture, Ocala is also considered the “Horse Capital of the World,” making it a prime locale for equine fans. Not to mention, it’s close to major cities like Tampa and Orlando. Nature enthusiasts also love to frequent the Ocala Springs and Ocala National Forest.

The space
The apartment is the upper level of the historic Kemp brick estate built in 1938. The house has been owned both residentially and commercially in the past. Most recently, it was know as the Blue Heron Art Gallery.

The apartment contains its own entrance (you must climb stairs), bathroom, bedroom, large kitchen, gym, living room, and office. There is a beautiful antique bedroom set in the bedroom with a new king sized bed. There is also a pull out sofa bed in the living room. The apartment is about 2,000 square feet of interior living space.

We offer great discounts for weekly and monthly stays.

The apartment is fully stocked with pillows, sheets, blankets, towels, soap, shampoo, conditioner, coffee and tea as well as welcome snacks and a bottle of wine.

There is one reserved parking space provided. If another space is needed, please message me to make arrangements.

Hello, a few years ago I purchased the historic Kemp house in downtown Ocala. The house was most recently The Blue Heron Art Gallery. Over the years it’s been home to several different businesses and was a boarding house in the 1950s and 1960s. After months of renovation, I opened it up for guests to enjoy the suites.

Last year, I purchased the Nash house which was built in 1891. After renovations I opened it up to guests in July. The home was named for Pastor Charles Nash who was the pastor of the First Baptist Church. The home is on the same street as the oldest synagogue in Florida. It’s been a joy to add the space to my existing properties.

The most recent addition is the Martin house. This home opened February of this year for guests. The home was built in 1918, by one of the founding families in Ocala. The home features original stained glass, fireplaces and claw foot tub.


I have been in the rental industry for years, and always look to have happy guests. Thank you for considering these properties, I hope you select one for a getaway.
