About Jan omans

We are Stu and Jan Omans. Almost 40 years ago we bought our home and raised our three sons right here. Stu, retired prof. at UCF in English, founded the Orlando Shakespeare Festival and taught for 35 years. Jan, potter, artist, created the Ultimate Bagel at the popular Winter Park Farmer's Market, where with her husband and three sons baked and sold ethnic baked products. After retiring we, purchased a 10 acre farm in Western North Carolina where we play/work for six months a year.

Why Jan omans chose Winter Park

Just unbelievable lucky I guess.

What makes this house unique

We love the beauty of our neighborhood surrounded by lakes and walking distance to Rollins College, Winter Park Library, Morse Museum of Art holding the largest collection of Tiffany Windows and Art Deco, Cornell Museum, Mad Cow Theater...Sitting on the screened front porch, walking around Lake Virginia to Rollins College or Park Ave. Seeing the bald eagles and great blue herons fly over our house.

A respite from winter

  • 5 of 5

We came to this charming 1920s home seeking privacy, quiet, and a respite from cruel Northern winter. We got all that and more, from January sunshine to long walks in the lovely Lake Virginia area--and sometimes just a nap in the recliner on the big screened porch. This is clearly a family home, comfortable, sunny, and full of original art and period touches. The neighborhood of brick streets and lush gardens is pleasant and historic; the house, roomy and comfortable, immaculately clean, and well supplied. Mattresses are excellent. The hosts were always ready to answer questions via phone or email. It was the perfect base for exploring the handsome lake town of Winter Park, from Leu Gardens and Rollins College to a new and bustling Trader Joe’s.

Winter Park for the Holidays

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful home with lots of character built in the 20s. Large living and dining room were great for gatherings of our entire family of 12. Very quite neighborhood a three iron from Lake Virginia and easy walk to Rollins and Park Avenue restaurants. The kitchen was very well equipped. Was surprised that the temperature in December got into the high 80s and also the 50s. The heat and air conditioning worked like a charm. Maybe the best memory is the fresh grapefruit right off the tree in the backyard for breakfast. That was a real treat!

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I arrived late on Sunday and pretty much found a bed and went to sleep. Monday morning when we woke up we saw the home in the light of day, beautiful, it has a classy old world feel to it, allot of art, mostly from the family but all very nice. The longer we stayed the more we felt at home. It’s a great house with allot of character. It was very clean and you can tell the owners keep up with all the maintenance, I would recommend this to everyone, we certainly had a great stay.

Perfect Location near Rollins College

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this lovely home for 2 weeks while attending an Institute at Rollins College. We were able to ride our bicycles to campus in about 5 minutes and avoid parking issues. Very clean, open and bright layout, plenty of space for our family of 5 plus 2 grandparents. Kitchen very well stocked with appliances, dishes, and basic pantry items. Peek-a-boo view of Lake Virginia from screened porch. Wifi available here as well, which was necessary for us with the classwork. Highly recommend.

Beginning the New Year in Winter Park FL

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had the pleasure of spending 9 days in Winter Park Florida to visit family, and had the great fortune to find this wonderful home as our haven. The house is clean, comfortable, cozy. We began every morning in the light filled living room and dining room and ended our days there too. The openess of the space worked beautifully for us. The location - in a lovely neighborhood, within site of Lake Virginia and within walking distance of Rollins College and downtown Winter Park - makes it ideal. We loved strolling on Park Avenue, sampling restaurants and bakeries, watching the train arrive and depart, exploring the lovely Rollins campus, visiting Leu Gardens. There is someting about this house, and the owners, which left us feeling as if we had been staying at the home of friends. If anything, the pictures don't truly capture how lovely the house is... there is a marvelous staircase to the second floor which ought to be included in the photos!
