The Farmhouse is the original home of the orange grove owners before us. Recently restored and renovated, we now get to open our doors to host guests in this gorgeous space with so much Old Florida history!

You'll be staying right on-site of Wonderfield Farm and Grove (originally Banes Grove) which is 66-acres of orange groves, idyllic cypress swamps, pastureland, and more! Your backyard is 10,000 acres of nature preserve. Walk our waterfront trails, and spend time in nature.

The space
The original farmhouse, recently restored and renovated!

No one lives in this house, but the common spaces (kitchen, front bathroom, living room, dining space, and common porch) are used sometimes by the staff, volunteers, and owners who live and work at the farm.

You will have your own private suite, bathroom, and screened porch at the back of the farmhouse, but are welcome to use the common areas as you wish! You will have an opportunity to connect with the staff, owners, and possibly the other guests staying or visiting the farm.

Your backyard will be 66-acres of gorgeous Old Florida land. We are a "agritourism" area which means we are an active farm, that invites guest to come and experience our space. Focused on food production, we do our best to cultivate our land using permaculture principles, sustainable action, and regenerative practices.

Your stay helps fund our farm, and keeps us growing! Thank you!

Please note, we allow pets at this listing but we charge a $20 pet clean fee PER ANIMAL. You will be responsible for sending this payment through Airbnb, or leaving cash - the clean fee goes directly into the pockets of our dedicated cleaning staff. Thank you in advance!

Guest access
You are sure to get the "Old Florida" experience here at Wonderfield Farm & Grove. Located on a retired orange grove, next to a spring-fed river, among century old cypress trees.

The Farmhouse is located right on the property, adjacent to a traditional neighborhood setting Gobbler Drive, but you will have access to the entire property to get away from it all!

*Know that the farmhouse is not very secluded, it is setback off of Gobbler Drive, but your backyard is 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.

Also, there's a very nice market and deli down the road next to the boat ramp for basic needs, drinks, and they make some great sandwiches too!

During season (November - April) free to harvest some citrus during your stay! We love to share our abundance and know there are few things like harvesting your own food. Enjoy as breakfast, a snack, or squeeze your own orange juice! Please only harvest an amount that you'd be able to consume in a day.

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! 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.
