Enjoy a fully-furnished 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, 1600 square-foot, single-story house in the heart of Winter Park, a wonderful town that is adjacent to Orlando and that is home to an array of restaurants, galleries, museums, up-scale shops, businesses, professional offices, parks, lakes and hiking and biking trails. Rollins College is just minutes away from the house by car.
Our house has high quality furniture, linens, cookware and tableware, large and small appliances; hardwood or tile flooring in most rooms; a large fenced backyard with a brick patio, lawn furniture, and a grille; front and back covered porches; and a concrete circular driveway. It has Brighthouse TV, Wi-Fi, and local phone systems; a printer/fax/copier/scanner machine; and DVD/CD player with DVDs and CDs. There are central heating and air conditioning systems; ceiling fans; smoke alarms; and a lawn sprinkler system. Lawn and landscaping care is provided.
Downtown Winter Park has an Amtrak station. Getting to or from Orlando Airport from the house takes about 30 minutes by car. Both I-4 and 436 (Semoran Boulevard) exits are about 10 minutes away. Grocery and drug stores, Winter Park Hospital, and a YMCA wellness center are all within walking distance, as is a bus stop. Baldwin Park and WInter Park's public golf courses are minutes away by car. The Atlantic Ocean beaches, Walt Disney World, Universal Studios and other major attractions are about a 45 minute drive away.
We are a professional couple -- a retired architect and a university professor -- who live in Pennsylvania. Our daughter-in-law lives down the street from the house and manages it for us. We love the house and intend to use and enjoy it more fully in the future. We believe that you will like spending time in it. Contact us for additional information and availability.
Live in Sewickley, PA. Retired Architect. Enjoy the sunshine and spending time at the beach when we visit Florida.
Tom and Nell Hartley purchased this house in 2000
Purchased this home when I was working in Orlando. Our family enjoys coming to visit Winter Park, where we have fond memories and local friends.
The floor plan, brick-paved patio, beautiful fenced-in backyard,and master bedroom porch are among our favorite aspects of the home. The bedrooms and bathrooms are on either side of the large living area.The unique floor plan provides privacy for couples traveling together and or parents and children. The arrangement and furnishings support entertaining.
We stayed at the property for 3 months in the fall of 2014, and it was a lovely experience. The house is well-equipped for a long term stay, and the location is perfect. Walk to parks, Whole Foods, Starbucks--you name it. You don't have to be in a car if you don't want to. It's a great place to stay with children, and my son enjoyed playing nerf baseball in the beautiful, peaceful green back yard. It has enough space for guests to visit, and is well appointed with speedy wifi, a printer, and comfortable towels. We don't have enough good things to say about the property, but dealing with the owners was a definite joy. They were accomodating, quick to reply and work with us on receipts (we were traveling for work and needed meticulous documentation), and never blinked at any requests. They even mailed us a crib for our newborn baby! Wonderful stay, great owners. Highly recommended.
We went to Florida for our belated honeymoon. This house is conveniently located about 20 minutes away from orlando, and about 30 minutes away from universal studios and disney attractions. It was definitely very convenient for us! It is about an hr away from beach. This home had everything we need: comfortable bed, kitchen with everything we needed to make our meals, washer/dryer, dishwasher etc. We were able to walk to , which is huge plus for me!! The home is very clean and inviting! My husband and I are hoping to have a home like this someday ;). The coordinator for the home was wonderful, she was available whenever we had any questions! The closest grocery stores for food is whole foods and publix (which is about 2 miles away from the home). Winter park is a wonderful town to explore if you want to relax from the adventures one day! We were out exploring florida everyday till midnight or 1 am for that whole week. Thus we didn't really get to enjoy being at the home. However, it was nice to have everything we needed to relax and have good nights sleep when we got home! A+++ from us!
We refer to this home in Winter Park as our "home away from home" and will continue to stay here when we visit as long as it is available. The owners are very accommodating and go out of their way to make sure your stay is all you wish it to be. The home is fully stocked with all of the necessary things that you need in a home. These include up to date kitchen appliances, washer and dryer, clean, well furnished bedrooms and a private back yard for children to run and play.
We recommend this home for families with young children and families of all ages.
This home is also very close to a variety of restaurants and stores that are in downtown Winter Park and there is also a great boat ride on the lakes of Winter Park too. So much to do and enjoy in this modern, town and home.
Thank you for a wonderful stay. We will be back!

The main thing I want from a VRBO rental is a functional kitchen. This Winter Park home has that, plus laundry, wifi, grill, comfortable mattresses and comfortable furniture (inside and out). There's even a desk and a printer. We didn't use the tv so I can't comment on that; but I did notice a nice selection of books and dvds.
The kitchen is fully stocked (linens, cutlery, equipment, and spices) with nice light. It was very clean and I had to work to keep it as nice as it looked when I arrived. The microwave is getting older, but it works well and isn't noisy.
The laundry equipment is new and very quiet. I think the photo here must show the old units.
Thoughtful touches throughout and not a lot of frou-frou decor. Instead, there's room for your stuff in closets, charming paintings and prints on the walls and cleaning supplies if you need them.
The location is top notch. A quiet, walkable neighborhood with friendly neighbors. Close to Winter Park's shopping and restaurants. But who needs restaurants if you can grill out with steak from The Meat House!
We will book here again on our next visit.
I had a wonderful and most enjoyable experience while staying at this property. The information given about the location and assets concerning the house were accurate in every way. The house is well maintained and all appliances functioned well. The interior was spotless and impeccably clean. The furniture was comfortable and lovely with a "homey" feel. When having my morning coffee, I particularly enjoyed sitting on the terrace and looking at the beautiful backyard with its flowering plants. The house is located in an area that is accessible to retail shops, nice restaurants, art galleries, health clubs, churches, and concert events. I would rate this property "6 stars" and recommend it most highly to anyone looking a a special retreat.
Home Sweet Home. That's how I would describe this wonderful property. I moved to Orlando last August and needed a furnished home as I made the transition. The house was immaculate and had everything I needed (and more). I was amazed with the owners' attention to detail.
It is conveniently located near Disney, Downtown Orlando, a YMCA, running/biking trails, parks restaurants, shopping and a hospital.
I highly recommend this home to anyone for a short or long-term stay.
