Come stay with us at Wonderfield Farm and Grove! This kitschy cottage is located adjacent to our 66-acre farm full of "old Florida" beauty you will fall in love with.

Stroll amongst citrus groves, ancient oaks, and abundant flora. The "backyard" of our property is 10,000 acres of Flying Eagle Nature Preserve, providing an exceptional experience in nature.

The space
You are sure to get the "Old Florida" experience here at the Grove. Located on a healthy orange grove, next to a spring-fed canal, amongst century-old cypress trees.

The "Kitschy Cottage" is situated in a traditional neighborhood setting, on East Gobbler Drive, but you will have private access through your back gate to experience and explore Wonderfield Farm and Grove to get away from it all! *Know that the cottage is not a secluded farmhouse, it is located on a traditional neighborhood street, but a few steps east will give you access to our 66-acre property that is a wilderness of natural beauty.

Our property is just minutes away from some of the most famous springs in Florida, such as Crystal River Springs, Rainbow River Springs, Homosassa Springs, just to name a few! Besides spending a day snorkeling among the manatees, you can find plenty of other outdoor activities to do - canoeing, kayaking, and hiking - all right here on the property or just a drive away.

There is a public boat ramp to access the Floral City Chain of Lakes just down the road (.25 miles away) if you plan on bringing a boat. You may park your boat, trailer, RV, on the property, no problem.

Feel free to harvest some fruits, veggies, herbs, and of course citrus during your stay (depending on harvest season, varieties will change.) We love to share our abundance and know there are few things as good as harvesting your own food. Enjoy as breakfast, a snack, or squeeze your own orange juice!

Please note, we ask for a $50 pet cleaning fee. Please leave cash in the cottage at the end of your stay or send right here through Airbnb.

I graduated from Florida International University in Miami, FL in May of 2015 and have been traveling nearly non-stop since. Throughout these travels I was blessed to encounter different hosts all over the world that treated me like family. Being able to experience new places and cultures through a local is a beautiful thing! Now that I'm back home and more settled, I feel privileged to return this favor to my fellow travelers. Karma at it's finest. I used the inspiration fueled by my travels to build my company - Om the Go. A travel & wellness company with a mission to motivate you to come home to yourself, wherever you are. I design and lead yoga and wellness retreats around the globe, including on sailboats! I started hosting yoga retreats at my family farm in 2018. This experience inspired me to design the space to where others could enjoy the farm too - which led to creating Wonderfield Farm and Grove, a permaculture farm and event space. We currently host overnight guests at the farm as well! Travel for me is much, much more than a plane ticket to a strange place - more so a new way of seeing things. It's being able to attain a fresh perspective on the beauty that surrounds me, whether that beauty is in my backyard or across the Pacific Ocean. And the most important thing? Remembering to come home to myself, no matter where I am in the world.
