Greg and his family have owned this home since 2002. They are avid skiers and wakeboarders and this home provides the perfect setting for boating and watersports. This property consistently receives top reviews for its location and amenities.

The Owner purchased this house in 2002

We bought this property because it combines a beautiful lakefront setting with boating and jet skiing with the closeness of being able to get to the Orlando theme parks in about 30 minutes. Additionally, this home has views of the lake from two sides and a very large pool and hot tub. This home is also close to Lakeland and Tampa and central to the beaches on the east and west coasts.

This home is the perfect place to just unwind and relax. We wake up in the morning and sit out on the patio drinking our coffee while we watch the lake and wildlife. We love to play games and there are many things to do inside the home like play pool, foosball, ping pong, darts, etc. which the kids love. Also, the pool is huge and we love to float around or watch the kids do tricks from the diving board. We love to go boating, and our lake is one of the cleanest lakes in all of Florida. Eagle lake is excellent for watersports and fishing. Everytime we visit this home we hate to leave!

Fantastic Florida vacation

We've stayed in this home now on numerous occasions and we've always had so much fun. This year we absolutely loved all the new leather furniture, sectionals and Lazy Boy chairs. It's such a comfortable environment to all hang out in together and the space is designed so everyone's not on top of each other. As always, the home was clean and tidy on our arrival and the owners have always been warm and inviting. One of these days we're going to get a boat and come enjoy the gorgeous lake. One of our favorite things is grilling out on the screened patio while the sun sets over the lake. Heaven! And the kids never want to leave because they always say they love having their own "hotel pool with diving board". If you've got a family and want to play together and hang together, this is a great house. It has great character.

A Great Vacation

We were looking for a home that would be a getaway for the family. The kids wanted to stay in Disney property, but my wife and I really wanted something where we could relax and be away from the rat race. We found it in this home. Although it's about 30 minutes from Disney, it's an easy drive...all highway. And, the nice thing is that it is in a quiet neighborhood and sits on a beautiful lake so we were able to feel like we were in a private setting, yet close to everything. The kids absolutely loved all the games and the huge pool with diving board. My son probably went off the diving board a hundred times one day. The furniture appeared to be very new and there's a lot of space to relax and unwind...very comfortable. We really hated to leave as we had so much fun. We'll look forward to a ping pong tournament rematch next year. Thanks for allowing us to rent your lovely home.

Great vacation home in a quiet setting

We come to Central Florida every year to enjoy the warm weather and take in a bunch of the theme parks. We decided to go with a larger vacation home in Winter Haven this year and we're glad we did. Upon walking in we were pleasantly surprised by the fact that this home had brand new furniture. The photos on VRBO did not reflect the new furniture yet, so that was a nice touch. This home is very spacious and clean and is located on quite a large boating lake. We didn't bring a boat, but did venture out on the paddle boat at sunset a few nights. That was nice. There are lots of games like billiards and ping pong and everything was very clean. The pool is very large and was a good temperature to cool off from the heat. The home is located on a lake and it is Florida, so there are some ants and things outside, but nothing that we don't have up north. The two large screened in areas are very nice to hang out in and we found ourselves grilling out almost every night. We had a good time and had some much needed time to unwind. Great location and home. We'll be back.

What a wonderful place to come for some much needed rest and relaxation! The house is great...loved bring able to sit and watch the birds while we had our coffee in the morning. Just sitting outside and listening to all the birds and the lake sounds is so peaceful. The week went by sooo fast.

We hope to be back soon and often. Thanks for the hospitality.

Reminiscent of a summer camp bunk house

First, I would say the lake is beautiful, but if you don't have a boat to access it, this is not the place for you. The dock doesn't go far into the water and you'll find yourself wading through all of the creature filled grasses (we did see water snakes). Don't rely on the paddle boat that gets you nowhere, slow.
As for the house, it would be great for a youth outing or young men's retreat. There are plenty of gaming tables, but don't expect comfort. All of the couches have lost all support. The pool is very warm (in July) to the point of almost uncomfortable ( even though we didn't run the hot tub once, which spills into the pool. There are some slight issues with cleanliness such as stained sheets (although not dirty), mildew all over one shower curtain, and drainage problems in a tub. The entire pool deck was filthy when we arrived. its under a birdcage so it shouldnt be that difficult to keep clean, but we had to sweep it ourselves. big problem with hoards of black ants on the decking. i tried to let my baby crawl around, but she would quickly be covered with ants (although, theyre not biting ants.) Oh, and the diving board is simply a narrow jumping platform. It's not a spring board and does not bounce in any way. That was a disappointment for the kids.
There was a significant leak while we were there, during a storm and there is some busted tile that's dangerous and in need of repair. My son deeply cut his toe on it. Also, every time the air comes on downstairs, it makes a loud crashing sound that sounds like a slamming door. I never got used to that. Could just be a dirty filter.
Thirdly, we tried to contact the owners a few times about some questions and concerns. Tried email with no acknowledgement and spoke to the owner once on the phone. He said he would call back, but never did. We've been home for a week.

Owner's Response: For the whole story, this renter called three days prior to check out and said they accidentally booked one too many nights and asked for money back for the last night. We already passed up another rental for that date so we declined. It seems to have entered into the equation with this review because I personally spoke with Eric and the only issue he reported was a small window leak, which we repaired immediately. In fact he said they were having a great time boating and swimming every day. Nevertheless, we address all reviews and hope they make us better. Some notes:
The paddle boat is pedal powered. It's not designed to go fast. The lake is up and down with the rains, which is typical of Florida, but the dock was 14 feet into the water at the time of this review and it doesn't affect usage of the dock. This is the first time anyone has complained about the pool being too warm. Most people want it warm. The diving board is not an olympic spring board, just a commercial diving board. The kids that come usually love it. We have 2 powerful air conditioning units and I'm not sure what the complaint means here. They work excellent and cool the home in 2 different zones. The pool deck did have some pollen and leaves that made it through the screen due to torrential rains over the past 10 days, and as soon as we saw this we had it cleaned immediately. We've owned this home for 12 years and have been on VRBO as the longest running property. We are a Christian family that cares about our guests and we are always available by mobile phone for anything.
