Clermont House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Beautiful Mediterranean Style home with spectacular 38'x18' pool. The large heated screened pool and the jacuzzi/spa with the expansive and spacious deck are what bring our renters back repeatedly, year after year. Open all the sliding doors at the rear of the home and the living room becomes part of the pool side. Numerous sun beds and patio tables are there for all your guests to enjoy.

Get the new Webber Gas BBQ up and running and switch on the landscape lights in the trees...perfect! Clever landscaping provides perfect seclusion and privacy to the 1 acre back yard and while the World Class Water Ski action is enjoyable on the lake during the day time hours, by 5 pm, peace and tranquility descend. Beyond the waterski lake is the 18 hole golf course (Swiss fairways which offer very reasonable green Fees) so total privacy is ensured.

All the comforts of home are in this home for your pleasure. From Flat Screen TV in the living, surround sound through the pool area, TV's in each bedroom, cable, WiFi Broadband internet access and Vonage Telephone with free long distance calling across the US available, it's all there. Linens galore, all the appliances, pots and pans etc. Even the citrus press is there to squeeze your own fresh oranges straight from the orchards in the 1 acre garden.

About The Owner

We are a family of avid waterskiers and this location offers us the opportunity to enjoy this and all our outdoor activities.

We are also Triathletes and have completed The Horrible Hundred Bike ride here in Clermont, The Great Floridian IronMan Distance Triathlon, many of the shorter local Triathlons and many of the local running races. Clermont is a great place for the recreational and competitive athlete, the tournament and casual waterskier and of course the enthusiastic golfer.

The Owner purchased this house in 1999

Why The Owner chose Clermont

We are a family of avid cyclists, triathletes and waterskiers. This is the perfect location for watersking, golf and all outdoor activities. There is easy access to the best of Central Florida's cycle routes and this is why so many triathletes come to stay in this same location. It is close to the National Training Center in Clermont ( about a 10 minute drive) and close to the West Orange trail for jogging, rollerblading and cycling.

What makes this house unique

Waterskiing, Reasonable and affordable golf, Amazing outdoor sports opportunities,close proximity to Disney and all that central Florida has to offer. Peace and tranquility in a special part of the world. And lastly, the fabulous climate.

Guestbook comments from the owner

we stayed in your house a few weeks ago (on the last week of May) and I just wanted to get in touch to let you know we had a fantastic time. Everything about our stay was great, especially the house. Everything we could have needed was there and our 13 years old daughter had a kick out of having her own bathroom and spending the mornings in the pool whilst I was skiing. She made good use of the various balls and buoys we found in the garage.



We were pleased to find internet access and a sound system we could connect our phones to as well as a fully equiped kitchen.



We hope to come back next year and hopefully stay again in your house.



Once again, thank you for allowing us to have such a wonderful time.



With best regards,



The Heler-Caruel family, from London.

Complete Perfection in Every Way

  • 5 of 5

This was truly paradise for us these past two weeks and a welcomed change from the cold, dreary days of winter in New Jersey.

This home was absolutely lovely. The kitchen had all the conveniences of home, the beds were extremely comfortable (plenty of linens and towels), the pool area was beyond what we ever could have imagined and the sunsets were magnificent. We enjoyed watching the water skiers daily and relaxing in the hot tub each evening. The views were beautiful in every direction and the total privacy of the property was an added bonus.

Gwen, the owner, was a truly special lady. She went above and beyond what we ever could have expected and was extremely knowledgeable with all of the information she gave us about the area. It was a joy and pleasure renting from her. We have many fond memories of our stay here, and highly recommend this perfect vacation home to all.

Paradise Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect! We took our daughter, husband and two grandchildren to Disney for a Christmas gift. Looked for a place off the Disney site to be able to have the benefit of the Disney experience and a home to spend time as a family. This home made our trip both fun and relaxing.

Gwen is an amazing hostess and took great care of us; she made us feel we were friends rather than just a business acquaintances. Check-in was very easy. She answered all my many emails and questions in a very timely manner and provided personal touches to make us feel at home.

The house is situated on a private lot. We sat in the screened enclosure for the pool/patio area, swam and sat in the hot tub and did not feel that eyes were on us, both day or night (not to mention being from New England bug free.) Renting a home site unseen was a bit concerning to me, but we felt very safe in this house and development. The master bedroom has a huge bathroom with a jacuzzi along with a very comfortable king bed. The 2nd bedroom has a queen with a large screened-in balcony to enjoy morning coffee and the 3rd room was perfect for the kids with twin beds. Games and movies were provided for our use. A large selection of linen and towels were available for both bath and pool use and the kitchen has every appliance needed. The washer and dryer is new and helped keep our packing down to a minimum. There is a Publix grocery store and various places to eat 5 to 10 min. drive from the house; very convenient. The only concern we had was Gwen said that the drive to Disney is about 30-40 min. depending on traffic, but after the 1st days drive we felt it not to be a problem at all. We just factored in the time to our day.

If your looking for a place to stay to experience the theme parks and a home to relax and explore Florida. This is by far one of our favorite homes we've rented and have already recommended it to our friends and family.

Beautiful and relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

We actually picked this location due to the fact we had family that lived in Leesburg and wanted to be closer to them to visit (around 30-45 min from them). We loved being away from all the craziness of Disney but not so far away to visit there. This is a very peaceful, quiet neighborhood that offers skiing and a golf course. The skiing is very relaxing and does not bother your relaxation at all. The majority of the time we enjoyed the covered back deck and pool area and watching the skiers go by. We found ourselves sitting out there for hours in the morning and evening time. A lot of vacation homes you rent you pay extra for the grill use and they don't even work too well, my husband was so excited that their weber grill cooked the food evenly and was in great condition to use for our dinners in. We are annual pass holders with Universal Studios as we visit around 3 times a year so 2 of the days we visited there and 2 days we visited Disney World (both around 30-45 min drive depending on the way you go and traffic). We didn't find that to be a problem but would require you to have a vehicle for transportation to the parks. We also went over to Treasure Island Beach and enjoyed that as well. The Gulf side is around 2 hours away and Atlantic side if more around an hour away.

The master bedroom has a huge bathroom for use along with a very comfortable bed, so we did not to miss ours. They have a large selection of towels and pools towels for use as well. If you had a chance to sit in the living room the sofa's were just as comfy to sit or even sleep on as most the time our 2 girls would fall asleep down on the sofa instead of heading up to the rooms.

Check in was very easy, Gwen answered all the questions we had in a very timely manner, and check out is actually 1pm which is really nice if you have an afternoon flight you don't have to head out so early. This is by far one of our favorite homes we have rented on vacation down here. Hoping to return on our next vacation.

BEST HOME WE HAVE EVER STAYED IN DURING A VACATION IN FLORIDA-PERFECT FOR LARGE OR SMALL FAMILIES!

  • 5 of 5

This gorgeous house is a dream come true to stay in!!! It is lovely and private on a large lot right next to the lake!!! There is a huge pool and jacuzzi that sparkles with different colors and a beautiful large patio with tons of chairs and tables for everyone to enjoy!!! The bedrooms are large, sumptuous and the beds sooooo comfortable to sleep in!! You almost don't want to leave the house because it is perfect!!! The appliances are new and work very well!!! The couches and chairs are lovely and oh so comfortable!! There is also a huge hot tub in the master bathroom for you and your spouse to enjoy!!! Gwen is a perfect hostess, and responds quickly to any questions or needs you have during your vacation! She is lovely! We visited Walt Disney World every day, and enjoyed dining at the local sushi and italian restaurants that were within 5 minutes of the home!! It was a perfect vacation home, and we will definitely be back again! I would recommend this home to anyone that wants to stay in a luxury home, with privacy, and yet close to the Florida attractions as well! You can have the best of both worlds when you stay at Gwen's home!

Simply Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

My boss asked me to find him a rental down in the Orlando area for the week of 8/19...A monumental task for the vacation capital of the States! Thousands of properties, all different budgets, and the hope to select a perfect property that would complement each family member! I happen to come across THIS property, and I have to say, it was awesome from beginning to end and everything in between! The best part of all, my boss was happy as was his family! I can only review my experience of the selection and rental process, as I cannot review from visiting, but I will tell you this....I'm planning to surprise my own family with a visit in April and will then post my own visiting review!
