About Renée Cingolani & Darryn Stephen

We have been together for 18 years. We love to sing and play music, gardening (organic vegi/herbs & floral), outdoor activities, DIY major renovating, and we love to travel! 6 years ago we discovered vrbo.com and have used it continually on our trips. When our long term renters left to buy a home of their own, we decided to offer up the unit for other vacation renters instead of looking for new tenants. We love meeting people from around the world and enjoy practicing our spanish, french, and german when the opportunity affords.

Renée Cingolani & Darryn Stephen purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Renée Cingolani & Darryn Stephen chose Lake Simcoe

This is a property that has been in our family for years. It is an original century home in Oro, built in the late 1800's and comes with a ton of history. Each year we finish something new; adding a new garden, extending a forest path, adding new trees to the orchard, rebuilding a room or two, etc. We love our home, the history that comes with it, and very much enjoy sharing it with others.

Our Home away from Home!

  • 5 of 5
A serious illness in our family caused a sudden move back to the Oro area for us in May of this year. We found the Cingolani's beautiful home online and moved in while we waited for our house to finish being built. We could not have asked for a better place to stay. Welcoming us with open arms, they took us and our pups in and we immediately felt like one of the family during a very trying time. We fell in love with everyone, the home, the property, the atmosphere, and have made friends for life. It is a wonderful, hidden gem, and we can not recommend it highly enough.

Love it!!

  • 5 of 5
This was a fantastic spot to take my husband and two sons away for a long weekend of skiing! The apartment was gorgeous, very spacious and immaculately clean with everything we needed at our fingertips. The host family was very friendly and welcoming, encouraging us to explore the beautiful property, which we enjoyed doing. We look forward to returning to this wonderful spot again someday!

Great place and excellent value

  • 5 of 5
We were 2 couples and a teenager for the weekend and the place could not have been better! It was minutes away from the two cross country sites we visited and also close to amenities for the inevitable 'I thought you were bringing that' items. We also appreciated the loan of the snowshoes to explore the back forty. Easy to get to, immaculate and well-equipped - exactly as described on the website. Our only regret was not finding this spot earlier on in the ski season. We won't make that mistake next year!

Vacation Gem!!

  • 5 of 5
I received a work contract for the Barrie area. As I live in Vancouver, BC, I decided I wanted something a bit different than the normal hustle bustle of the day. Just happened to find this beautiful property and had to stay there! The photos are beautiful, but in all honesty don't do it complete justice. The apartment itself, is amazing.. Inside it is cozy, warm and gives off a sense of contentment. Home away from home.. Besides all the wonderful inside amenities, the outdoor space is way beyond your regular rental properties. The yard is expansive, serene, stunning and so well maintained. You can go for long walks and never leave the property, something you'd never get in the city. Aside from the inside and out, the property managers are always on hand and available if you need anything (not that you would, the apartment is fully equipped!) I highly recommend staying here, and hope that in the future if I get another contract in this area and the property is available... THANK YOU!!!

Wonderful country getaway!

  • 5 of 5
Renée was our hostess and she was so sweet! We arrived very late on a Friday night and she was kind enough to meet us at the apartment with the key despite it being close to midnight. The place is exactly as it looked in the photos and her instructions on the house manual were as clear as could be. It was the perfect amount of space for two people on a long weekend vacation. We had no issues and the location was great for viewing fall colors on the Thanksgiving weekend. If we get a chance to go back to the area, we would definitely stay there again!
