COUNTRY LIVING SAFE, COZY, & PRIVATE WITH EASY ACCESS TO ATTRACTIONS

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 table & chairs, grill and extra storage. The setting is lovely, with a view of large oaks and pastures. Deer and quail may be seen in the winter. The apartment is a well planned 900 square feet with fully equipped kitchen, dining area, two bedrooms, one with queen & one with day bed plus a fold out single bed. The living area has a comfortable couch, recliner and loaded bookcase plus flat screen TV, radio/CD player, phone and wireless internet access. Washer and dryer are located in bathroom. All linens are provided with a weekly linen exchange (more on request) and weekly professional cleaning. This is a ten acre property so there is ample room for RV and/or boat parking. RV hookup available for separate fee.

NOTE: We had a very successful first year as a vacation rental. We have made many new friends and are already accepting bookings for the 2015 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

The 2014 snowbird season filled up before the end of March 2013! However, due to a last minute cancellation, the month of January 2014 is now available!

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

When I first saw this property 23 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 he 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. By the end of March 2013 we had bookings for the middle of January thru the end of March 2014. 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. Current availability....First two weeks of Jan 2014 and April 1st on.

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. The back 5 acres is mostly pasture with some woods in back. 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!

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!

RAY AND CAROL

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.

When we talked to Beth about booking their rental, she said if you see it you won't want to stay anywhere else. She was right. It is in the country, but close to shopping, restaurants or anything you need. There was plenty of room, full kitchen, nice living room and bedrooms, bathroom. You have your own washer/dryer. Very clean, and peaceful, and the landlords are the nicest people you will ever meet. We will stay there everytime we go to Florida.

LOVELY PLACE, GRACIOUS HOSTS

  • 5 of 5
This lovely apartment served as my home away from home for two weeks. I had everything I needed plus Jim and Beth, my hosts, who were ever so gracious making sure I had everything I needed during my stay. There was even coffee for my first morning, a special blessing since I arrived so late the night before and could not make a grocery trip. The apartment is clean and comfortable, the bathroom and kitchen are modern and well-equipped. I would certainly recommend this place for any reason that would bring you to the area. Thank you again Jim and Beth.
