Having lived in W.P. for 35 years has given me the opportunity to finally grow roots and call this my home. My children were born in W.P. Hospital and grew up enjoying the vast array of outdoor activities which can be done year round in the sunshine state.
We would pack up the car and spend the day in New Smyrna Bch. which is the beach of choice for the locals. The kids would build sand castles and surf.
The theme parks are an enchantment for the young and old alike. We had wonderful times visiting all the attraction here. Or we would just spend quality time home on the lake skiing, swimming and having delicious barbeques. The most valuable outcome was the active, healthy, quality time we had together as a family.
My family traveled extensively throughout the years and we always gravitated toward VRBO's for the space and convenience of being in a home rather than a hotel room.
Welcome to my home where I have made every effort to make your comfort a priority. Be safe and enjoy your Holiday in Orlando.
My assistant Lois who will be your guide during your stay has a very unique background. She was a chef and stewardess on private yachts for 14 years with her husband who was the captain. She traveled extensively around the world and has a wonderful sense of attention to detail. Anything you need she will do her best to make it happen.
Lois Huffman purchased this house in 2012
I purchased this property because I love the Winter Park area. My children and I still live here. It's location is central to everything one could want to visit and not be in the middle of all the hussel and bussel of the main attractions.
I gravitated to this property because of its old Florida living style. The home was built in a time when quality construction meant something. And the interior decor reflects that time. Everytime I was in the home it transports me back to a time when families spent time together.
What a perfect house in a perfect location! We arrived in Winter Park for a Thanksgiving Family Reunion to the Wonderful Dallas House! The layout is great for families - plenty of room, plenty of privacy. A huge backyard. A great pool. Quiet neighborhood yet within walking distance of about anything you would want to do! We have rented a lot of vacation homes over the years and Dallas House comes out on top! The house was spotless and beautifully decorated. Comfortable beds, excellent linens, and all necessities considered. Kitchen fully stocked if you want to cook and many restaurants within walking distance if you don't! Lois and Linda were 100% responsive and available. Two thumbs up for a great experience. Thank you!
My family and I had a girls weekend here, including my 4-year old niece. The house is decorated beautifully and the lay out was perfect for us! My niece couldn't get enough of the pool and the back yard was such a relaxing and beautiful place for the adults to enjoy. The beds were so comfortable and the number of bathrooms made it so much easier for us to all get ready and have our privacy. There is nothing that I would change about this place! We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
We just spent a wonderful week at the Dallas house. The layout of the house is perfect for a family - there was space for me and my husband and our 2 kids to relax and have fun. We loved the grill and the pool, and the house was well equipped with everything one needs for a great vacation. The newly opened Trader Joe's (walking distance away!) was icing on the cake. We had a great time exploring Winter Park, visiting relatives, experiencing the magic of Disney, and playing in the sand at New Smyrna Beach. We didn't want to leave and hope to be back soon!
Comfortable relaxing stay during my son's graduation from Rollins. Amenities were great and we were within walking distance of drugstore restaurants etc. Enjoyed the pool!
Dallas House is a jewel worth every penny and worry-free. Lois is THE BEST - booking the house with her was a breeze. This beautifully decorated, clean home on a lovely brick street is a secret hide-away. Socialize, pamper yourself then escape to a private corner in the house or outside. Enjoy the pool & BBQ, walk to the lake at sunset and order grilled artichoke and a grouper sandwich at Hillstone Restaurant, stop at The Wine Room in Downtown Winter Park then retire to watch Game of Thrones on HBO after a road trip to watch the Ft Myers Miracle baseball team, swim with the manatees at Crystal River, golf near the UCF campus, sink your toes in the sand then search for sea turtles and alligators at Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge, stare in awe at Cape Canaveral or get the best crab salad & key lime pie at Ozzie's Crabhouse in Palm Bay. Cherished seeing active duty and retired military throughout the state. We salute every one of them - especially the USAF since we served in that branch. Next time we will stay much longer - must sun with the lizards, smell jasmine, listen to the birds and float in the pool more often. Yes we did wear sunscreen everyday especially at New Smyrna Beach :) Got enough vitamin D to return to the cool northwest and wait for the summer sun there. Create your own coast-to-coast vacation memory with Dallas House at the center of your activities. Wish I could keep Dallas House all to myself it is so special.
We have stayed in many VRBO properties and this was the best provisioned of any. There were enough supplies for the entire month. We did not to have to buy soap, paper towels, toilet paper, Kleenex, or laundry soap. Lois was wonderful to work with and Harry replaced a screen that had a small hole in it and even brought over a spare tank of propane for the excellent Weber grill. A landscape and pool service both came each week.
The mattresses in the two masters were both very comfortable. We didn't use the third bedroom with twin beds. The living room sofa is very comfortable.
The kitchen is quite small but has everything you need to cook with. We cooked many meals and frequently used the grill. Grilled fresh grouper from the local fish market and excellent tuna from Fresh Market.
The bathroom in the second master is very small.
This home was a great place to stay during our time in Winter Park.
