Overview

Winter Park Villa Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

'Lakeside' is gracefully positioned on the shores of Lake Killarney in Winter Park (Orlando) Florida. A favorite among guests in the know. Golden sunrises and sunsets reflect on the pristine lake to celebrate the glorious day.

'Lakeside' was built for entertaining; it has become a popular and memorable setting for events.

'Lakeside' combines the convenience of 'in the city' while being immersed in an ecological habitat of rare birds and aquatic life on the shores of a peaceful serene lakeside setting. Cruise by boat (or auto) to the famed Houston's lakefront restaurant. Disney World is just a 20 minute drive and Daytona Beach an easy 50 minutes away. However everyone falls in love with the quaint town village of Winter Park (5 minutes)-- fondly referred to by local residents as 'little Europe'.

Winter Park is famous for its exclusive shopping, galleries & museums, and exquisite dining & eateries lining the cobblestoned 'Park Ave' and tree-shaded Central Park. The Morse Museum is home to the world's largest collection of Louis Tiffany glass. In the heart of the town village is 'Olde Winter Park'-- the exclusive residential address in Central Florida of celebrities, financiers, and professional athletes.

'Lakeside' is a 5,400 sq.ft. New England shingle coastal style 4 bedroom, 4 bath private family home. Constructed in 2009, the unique architectual design allows every living area to capture expansive views of beautiful Lake Killarney.

The home's living areas are spacious, comfortably appointed, and adorned with wooden beams, coffered ceilings, and accented by an 18' stone fireplace. For the musically inclined, a Steinway grand piano. The oversized octagonal dining room is surrounded by glass with uninterrupted lake views. For your reading pleasure, Lakeside's cherry-wood library holds more than 700 titles. Integrated into the library's design is a home theatre system equipped with a 54' LCD screen. The lakefront master suite is quiet and secluded with a master bath overlooking an atrium garden outside.

Lake Killarney (private access only) is a 300 acre spring-fed lake that serves as an eco-preserve for bald eagles, ospreys, great blue herons, and otters. Lake Killarney also enjoys a reputation for its bass fishing, water skiing, and boating. Lakeside has a large dock, private beach, and more than 285 feet of lake frontage. Central Florida is well known as a golfer's mecca with more than 50 courses available year-round-- Lakeside is located only 4 minutes from the vintage City of Orlando 'Dubsdread Golf Club'.

Lakeside is located on the west end of Winter Park which provides very easy access to Interstate 4, the main transportation artery connecting you to Disney, Universal,and Sea World in minutes as well as 3 State Parks and 7 Florida coastal beaches within a 1 hour drive.

EVENTS and RECEPTIONS. There is an Event Fee and security deposit based on size of event. Please call Bonnie to discuss arrangements. 321.277.5301.

All bedrooms have their own full private baths connected to the bedrooms.

BATHROOMS:

The spacious master bathroom has his & her dressing vanities, a large soaker bathtub overlooking an atrium garden area, a glass enclosed master shower, a privacy toilet room, and a walk-in closet.

All other bathrooms are privately adjoined to the bedrooms with a custom vanity and lavatory, a tub or walk-in shower, and toilet area.

ADDITIONAL AMENITY INFORMATION:

Lakeside's design includes a whole-house audio system and additional iPod wall connections in each bedroom.

What makes this villa unique

Winter Park is a very special place. If you come to Central Florida and only visit the Theme Parks, you will have a good time... but also miss out one of the most beautiful villages in the State of Florida. Winter Park is a unique combination of a quiet, peaceful, brick-paved residential community, yet a bustling Park Avenue brimming with up-scale shopping, dining, parks, and museums. Disney is artificial fun--- Winter Park is authentic enjoyment. Winter Park is unlike any other place in Florida...you don't want to miss it.

Memories to last a life time. A fairytale come true.

  • 5 of 5
Our three children and three grand children stayed with us in this beautiful home for the week leading up to our son's wedding. The owners were very attentive and every detail was perfectly explained prior to our arrival.

We rented double kayaks and enjoyed the lake to its fullest. The grand kids had a great time.

The master bedroom is an oasis and my husband enjoyed the beautiful, relaxing library.
It was perfect that everyone had their own bathroom and the bedrooms have good separation.
The kitchen was well stocked and easy to prepare meals

We hired Arthur's Catering to come to the home for our outdoor rehearsal dinner on the lawn. Our guests enjoyed jazz music and cocktails on the boat dock prior to our dinner.
Many quests from Orlando said they had no idea this beautiful home was there!

The dinner was breathtakingly beautiful. We would highly recommend Arthur's and this lovely home! We had cafe lights, beautiful floral arrangements, music, and the best atmosphere imaginable. Complete with a rainbow over the lake! NO KIDDING.

There is no traffic and unless you live in the neighborhood you would not travel through that area.
We were minutes to grocery shopping and restaurants.

We are happy to give this home and owners the highest rating.

Lovely Lake House!

  • 5 of 5
We rented this house for my daughters sweet sixteen birthday let me just say all the kids said they would rather go there than any amusement park. They had the time of their lives tubing. Our captian was awesome! The only time we left was to go Discovery Cove which was a short 20 min drive oh and Publix. The location is so perfect and so peacful! The front porch i could live on. We are looking for a date to go back stayed 5 days and we were not ready to leave. Owner's were very easy to deal with and had everything we needed there. Thank you so much

Beautiful, welcoming home

  • 5 of 5
This is a beautiful, inviting home. Upon our arrival, we were greeted by the owner, Bonnie, who welcomed us into her home and showed us around. She spoke proudly of the town (Winter Park) and recommended several restaurants. The home, like its owner, exuded warmth and offered every amenity. Though we didn't cook any meals, we did host an afternoon birthday party for a 1 year old relative. The house has a huge gathering area which was ideal for not only the party but our family, which enjoyed morning coffee and late night snacking and board games in the kitchen, dining, sitting area. We would definitely recommend this home and would like to return when in the Winter Park, Orlando area. We enjoyed eating at the restaurants in Winter Park and marveled at the Tiffany collection at the Morse Museum. The kids also visited Islands of Adventure. Thank you John and Bonnie for opening your home to travelers.

Divine

  • 5 of 5
The house is refined, comfortable, elegant. Enormous slate-tiled front porch looks out over the sloped front lawn and peaceful lake. A cook's kitchen, but with so many tasty restaurants so near, I'm afraid we only made breakfasts. Winter Park has an adorable downtown walking area for shops, bars, and restaurants. A fabulous getaway from all the crazy congestion of the amusement parks and highways. The owners were so helpful, responsive, and welcoming. We loved our stay.

A Little Bit of Heaven

  • 5 of 5
With our son's wedding in Winter Park, my husband and I were looking for a place to stay and host an informal "Meet and Greet" to bond two families, one from Texas, the other from Philadelphia. We could not ask for a more perfect setting and location than Shannon Serene. The home provided us with a warm, relaxing space for our immediate family, yet room to hold an event for 45 extended family. Our family and guest were amazed by the comfortable elegance of the home. We had wonderful evenings of music with use of the piano in the great room, our guitars played and voices sang out, what a celebration! The bride and groom even decided to have the "before" photos taken lakeside. We began each day sitting on the front porch with a cup of coffee, watching the herons and ducks come and go, thinking this is absolutely a little bit of Heaven! John and Bonnie thank you for sharing your home and helping us make such wonderful, lasting memories!

Absolute Best Home in Winter Park...this is the real deal!

  • 5 of 5
We travel to Florida with frequency--we prefer to stay in homes in Winter Park (Park Ave. is the antidote to plastic, asphalt, and Micky Mouse!). Shannon is the 'creme de la creme' of any & all homes available in Winter Park (or Central Florida). If you rent homes with frequency, you will get surprised--most often with some disappointment in expectations. And then you find Shannon...it is everything you expected and more... more beautiful, more immaculate, more gracious than the photos and descriptions suggest. It is the "real deal"--a "best buy" in Orlando. Lake Killarney is pristine-- the lakeviews are stunning. Though the home is only 5 mins to the shops of Park Ave. & 20 mins to bustling Disney, sitting in a rocker on the porch overlooking blue herons on the peaceful lake...one feels as if you were a thousand miles from it all. And while this is a large & spacious home, it has a warm, comfortable but elegant ambience--it is a place that says "come in and be family". Our family absolutely did not want to leave. Believe me, you don't want to stay anywhere else.
