Moira and arthur (Art) purchased this villa in 1996
We bought the home after spending many years with a property in St Pete's.
Bur fell in love with Lakeland and the Huntington Hills and the golf course and all the other great facilities and events the home owners association provide
A sunset view from the lanai 'to die for' the pool to enjoy and still have a golf view and lovely neighbours.
Belated apologies for a late review, especially since this was a delightful place. We came down for our son's wedding in Lakeland and as the groom's family, we wanted to stay close, and be able to celebrate but not be a burden. So we found this wonderful house! Art and Moira were great hosts, because they worked with us on multiple arrival times. Us and our 4 sons arrived at different times, and Art set up the keys so we could get in without problems. So we were only fifteen minutes away from the new in-laws house and completely comfortable. The home was beautiful, and exactly as pictured. The kitchen was completely set up, we had everything we needed, and were able to cook and enjoy each other’s company. The rooms were great, beds super comfy, the bathrooms clean and easy to use. The pool was fun to use, which we did. We ate on the lanai and enjoyed the view. It was private and quiet. Parking in the garage was a plus. We highly recommend this place, and Art and Moira as hosts. The only (very small, for sure) drawbacks were: the TV system was difficult to use and a little dated, the floor in the kitchen was a little slippery when wet, and we didn’t know the HOA didn’t want a second car on the street. We should have parked in the driveway, but the note was polite and we cheerfully complied.
So I give it 5 stars because I want others to enjoy this private, comfortable, and very much a home away from home. There is a good chance we will be back for another family visit. Thanks to Art and Moira!
We had a wonderful stay. There was a bit of a mix up on the day of check in, but things were quickly resolved and we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. The owners go out of their way to make sure there home feels like "home." We are already have plans in the works to return to Florida next year, and hope to once again, stay in this beautiful home. (If anyone happens to see a toddler size 7 watersock type shoe blue/bro in color hiding out somewhere, please let me know!!!) ;-)
We had a great stay at this house. For us, the most important thing was the location (off Duff Rd) which was super convenient to our family that lives in the area plus all the shopping and restaurants on 98. The living room and dining room furniture is great, the pictures on the website does not do it justice. Also the floors are now laminate, some of the pictures showed carpet. One of our family members is wheelchair bound so this was a nice surprise for us. The bedroom furniture was older but serviceable.
In the living area there was 4 seats at the dining table, 4 seats at the breakfast table, and 3 bar stools so it would be easy to host family dinners in this house. The bedrooms were really large, much larger than I expected. There was 2 queen beds and 2 twin beds so our family of 5 fit easily. It was too cold for us to use the pool, but we hope to on our next visit. We were worried about the pool since we have small kids; we were afraid they would get out of the house through the sliding doors without our knowledge. All the doors have multiple locks, though. The lanai was really nice with lots of outdoor seating.
The best part of this rental was working with the owners who were very accommodating. They do live overseas so it might be 24 hours before you get a response to an email.
We will definitely be returning to this rental!
What a perfect place to relax and enjoy Florida's beautiful weather. This was our first stay in the Huntington Hills community and we were very pleased with the home and community. Your home is warm and welcoming, as well as spacious,
we felt very secure in the neighborhood. This year was all about relaxing and taking it easy, and that's just what we did.
The fact that we didn't have to spend money on eating out every meal was great. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we could possibly need. We would eat meals outside by the pool and watch the golfers and wildlife.
We were only 40 minutes from Disney World and although that wasn't the purpose for our trip, we enjoyed the easy drive.
Thank you Art and Moria for your wonderful service, beautiful home and excellent value!
A great place to stay. Very clean and comfortable. It was nice to have a pool.
We couldn't have found a better place. This was our first time renting a house and it provided all that we expected after reading the reviews and more. The owner, Art, quickly replied to our questions by email prior to renting and was most helpful. Our daughters (18, 10) both enjoyed our stay here very much. It helped that we had plenty of space to spread out with the great floor plan, while at the same time having the right setting to come together for games at the lanai or livingroom/great room. Our family stayed here the weekend before Christmas and it was just great to see the beautiful Huntington Hills community's homes decorated for the season. It was a relaxing three days and we had all the comforts of home. The beds and pillows were very comfortable and everything was spotless. There were books and current magazines available. We enjoyed walking and riding our bikes (we brought with us) and while exploring, found beautiful Lake Lester with boat access available to residents and renters right on the property..absolutely beautiful and peaceful surrounded by wooded areas. The closets were well stocked with linen, towels and blankets and the kitchen, well, what can I say, it was better stocked than my own. Everything was close by, from Publix Supermarket to Lakeland Square Mall nearby which we went for some last minute Christmas gifts. The days passed too fast and had it not been that new guests were due to check in later that day, we would've asked for an extension. After we left, we thought that we had left a wallet in one of the dresser drawers (turned out we found it in our van some days later). Art went out of his way to inform us by email and phone more than once that his property manager and current guest were searching for it as well. He went beyond our expectations to always get back to us, even in the midst of the the busy holiday season and thousands of miles away. Thank you, Art. We definitely recommend staying in Art and Moira's beautiful home.
