About Steve

My wife and I enjoy meeting other people. We have met some wonderful people, and made new friends. We can never have too many friends in our opinion.

Steve purchased this apartment in 1998

Why Steve chose Winter Springs

My wife and I fell in love with this lakefront property when we first saw it in 1998. We were actually getting bids from contractors to build a new house on another piece of property we had owned for several years, but that property was not on a lake. When we saw this property we decided it was for us even though it needed extensive renovations. Looking back on our decision to sell the land and purchase the house on the water was the right decision. We both love our lakefront paradise.

What makes this apartment unique

You can enjoy a beautiful sunrise and sunset from the dock almost every day, You can see satellite launches from the coast on your balcony or walk down to the dock. You can see water skiers run the ski course. You can see some form of wildlife daily whether it be ducks, heron, ospreys, eagles, or some other creature. You can fish, swim the lake, use the canoe or paddle board, relax in the hammock, or just enjoy the view. This is life on the lake and we think you will love it.

5 Star Plus!

Our first adventure as snowbirds brought us to Winter Springs. What a lucky find! The apartment truly matched the pictures and description and the large balcony overlooking the private lake presented a perfect place for reading or enjoying the view. It was a pleasure looking at the lake first thing each morning for the 4 weeks that we were here. Everything was top notch and the owners have thought of all the little extras that could possibly be needed. Steve made the stay so pleasant—offering local tips, checking to see if everything was ok, giving fishing advice. This was so much better than a condo could possibly have been--privacy, beautiful landscaping, pool, lake, canoeing, fishing, balcony and dock.

While there we enjoyed golfing, fishing, canoeing, local restaurants, state parks, botanical gardens, Daytona tour. There are several good walking areas away from the 4 lane highways.

We HIGHLY recommend this rental!

Couldn't have asked for a more beautiful place to wake up every morning!

  • 5 of 5

This lakefront property was absolutely perfect for my parents, boyfriend and I when we were in town visiting family this past weekend! I had been in search of a location that would give us the comforts of home for 4 days - because there are times you just don't want to stay in a hotel. When I stumbled upon this listing, I couldn't have been more impressed by the beautiful lakefront view and the perfectly kept property, I thought it was too good to be true - but that was exactly what we found (and more) upon our arrival!! Steve and his wife have the most beautiful home, and they are more than welcoming to their visitors. We had a late flight into Orlando from Pittsburgh, and he waited up to make sure he could give us a tour of the house and know that we were settled in for the night without needing anything else or having any questions about anything.

Waking up every morning to the gorgeous Lake Howell and all of the lush greenery that surrounds their home, truly made you feel like you were at some sort of private resort - the beautiful scenery as well as Steve's hospitality made it incredibly hard to leave on Sunday! My Dad and Boyfriend made good use of the fishing dock that sits off the back of their property and my Mum and I loved the many cozy Adirondack Chairs and the hammock that were nestled around the home. Steve also keeps the pool and hot tub spotless - I wish we would have had more time while we were there to get a relaxing pool day in, but our four days were packed with family events.

I am very much looking forward to our return to Orlando, because now I won't have to worry about finding a place to stay each time we travel down there. This rental is within minutes to so many restaurants, grocery stores, shopping areas, etc - but as soon as you pull into the home, you are in paradise! Thank you Steve, we can't wait to stay with you again! Let us know when you are in Pittsburgh!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for finding and staying in our Lakefront Paradise Guest Apartment located on Little Lake Howell, also known to local lake owners as Lake Tuskawilla. It was a pleasure meeting you all. Hopefully next time you visit you will have the opportunity to relax in the hot tub as well. We look forward to seeing you again.

Our Family would definitely stay here again. Steve, Meredith, and Miss Abby we loved our stay with you. Accomodations were great and all the suggestions were very helpful. We can't think of one thing that was not right about this vacation. We wish we didn't have to leave! Hopefully we will be back soon.

We loved this apartment! It felt very secluded and with a marvelous lakeview but still close to restaurants and shopping. Steve and Meredith, along with Abby, of course, were welcoming and very easy to talk to. Steve was knowledgeable about Winter Springs and the area around Orlando and he gave restaurant tips and printed off Google maps for us to use. We swam or used the hot tub every day and had a wonderful barbecue with another couple we invited over for the evening. Steve asked if we would like music while we were entertaining and set the speakers with a music selection we all enjoyed and at just the right volume. We would most definitely stay there again - we were sorry to have to leave this time! Thanks again, Steve and Meredith.

Stayed here the first week in May. The owner was great and accommodating to any request. He was there to make sure our vacation went off without a hitch. The condo is beautifully furnished and the swimming pool and spa were great. Very friendly dog too. I would stay there again in a minute. Reasonable distance to all the parks and beaches...your away from the crowds. Very clean!

Beautiful apartment! Beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 loved this place! Our two kids loved the spiral staircase leading to their own private room. The apartment is well stocked with whatever we needed including a full size ironing board/iron, washer/dryer, dishes, etc. There is a television in the main living area and in the master bedroom which we appreciated. The owners were very friendly and accommodating. There is a private balcony off the apartment that has a gorgeous view of the pool and lake. We would definitely go back again!
