Overview

Eustis Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 bath private apartment in country home, sleeps 4

This is the perfect destination for those vacationers who want easy access to all of Central Florida's attractions (both natural and manmade) plus the serenity and security of life in a country home. This is a daylight basement apartment with a private entrance and patio with dining table & chairs, custom rocking chairs, grill and extra storage. The setting is lovely, with a view of large oaks, pastures, and wild plum trees that bloom in the early spring. If you look closely you might see deer, quail and gopher turtles. The apartment is a well planned 900 square feet with fully equipped kitchen, dining area, two small bedrooms and a bathroom with shower and washer and dryer. The bedroom has a queen size bed and large closet. The second bedroom is currently set up as an office with desk and chair which can be replaced with a day bed if additional sleeping area is requested. The living area has a comfortable couch, recliner and loaded bookcase plus flat screen TV, phone and wireless internet access. All linens are provided.. Professional house cleaning may be arranged at $20.00 per visit. This is a five acre property so there is ample room for RV and/or boat parking. RV hookup available for separate fee.

The home owners live on the property in a separate dwelling and are available to handle any requests or problems.

NOTE: We have had a very successful three years as a vacation rental. We have made many new friends and are accepting bookings for the 2016 snowbird season. Don't forget us if you are planning a move to central Florida and need a comfortable convenient place to stay while searching for a new home. Our current renters tell us that this is the nicest place in which they have stayed in the area.

About Elizabeth Byrd

My name is Elizabeth Byrd. When people ask me how a 'girl' from Seattle ended up in Central Florida, I say, 'the usual reason..a man!' My husband, Jim, a Miami native, and I met in Seattle. When we decided to move to Florida, we chose Lake County for its beautiful lakes (I can live without mountains but not water), climate, and accessibility to large cities without having to live in one. I discovered right away that sunshine is addictive!

Our children are all grown with their own families. Two live in Lake County and two out of state.

Elizabeth Byrd purchased this apartment in 1989

Why Elizabeth Byrd chose Eustis

When I first saw this property 27 years ago with its two old houses, I felt like I had come home --which is a pretty far stretch for a city girl! It was perfect for us with its front house for us, a shop for my husband, and the back house for my mother-in-law. After her death, we turned her home into a rental. The main part of the house has been rented by one person for many years. In 2013 we started renting the downstairs apartment as a furnished seasonal rental. It was a great decision! We have made many new friends. This summer and fall we have had two long term rentals to couples who were house hunting in Florida. We still live on the property in the front house, so we are here to make your stay as pleasant as possible. Come see us soon.

What makes this apartment unique

Did you ever watch 'This Old House?' Well we have two of them. The front house was built in 1924 and the back (rental) house was built in 1936. Like many others in Lake County, the property was originally an orange grove. No orange trees left, but we have lots of beautiful old oaks. Living here keeps us in touch with times gone by when life moved at a slower pace and you took time to watch the breeze ruffle the ferns and smell the roses!

MY wife And I give high marks to the landlords of this rental property. Their concerns went way beyond any business relationship. We left feeling we have met new friends. We highly recommend them. Doug and Sally R.

This place is the best!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I have had the opportunity to stay at this property for over 3 months while on a work assignment in Florida and am very sad to leave it. There is not enough good things to say about it or the landlords. It is an immaculate property with any and everything you need for a short or long term stay. The location is wonderful. Centrally located to everything from historic Mount Dora to both coasts. The property has a charming country atmosphere and is wonderfully pet friendly. I could feel myself relax the moment I drove up on the quiet serenity surrounding the apartment. The landlords, Jim and Beth, quickly became extended family but also gave me all the privacy I could want. They are wonderful people and a joy to get to know. You can not go wrong staying here and will find yourself hating to leave and hoping to return. So if you are on the fence about a rental this one is an outstanding choice. I felt so safe and secure and away from things I seldom even locked the door unless I was going to be gone overnight. Once I leave Florida I hope to come back periodically and this will definitely be a preferred destination if it is available. Choose the gem with confidence you will love it.

Glad we stayed here

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 3 months looking for a home. Only need to bring clothes! The kitchen utensils were nice quality, comfortable couch and nice to have washer and dryer included. The size of this apartment fit our needs. Location perfect, 5 minutes from shopping. We enjoyed the porch looking out to the field. The owners are super, available any time and respected our privacy.

Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful, comfortable, country property! While we were going through the stress of moving and searching for a home to purchase, we truly felt at home in this clean, sweet setting and felt taken care of by the owners. It was very private but the owners were always available to answer questions. We'd come back anytime!

We enjoyed our stay. The apartment was clean, quiet and had everything we needed. We enjoyed the porch with its peaceful view. The location was convenient to the Sanford, Mt. Dora area. There are golf courses close by. We plan on coming back again. The owners were friendly and very helpful. Great place to stay and get away from the cold winters.
