-super home for the active
we've spent 3 delightful seasons here & may well return in the future-we'd be back next year,but have decided that we should see some other part of fl.-I hope we don't regret it-there is a large living/dining area asuperb working kitchen with all necessary equipment,& a large adjoining area with plenty of room for a computer station(use the owner's computer or bring your own & use their wi-fi)-huge lanai & pool area with the appropriate furnishing-south facing,private,screened by a small wilderness area & aview of the 5th hole of the golf courrse-the newly sodded lawn is huge -the large driveway easily acommadated the large vehicles of both couples (my wife & I,my sister &brother in law)-we kept our 4 bicycles,golf clubs,&tennis rackets in the large double garage,&had plenty of room left over-the bedroom facilities were excellent,especially the master suite-in addition to the golf course on which the home is located(sun air),there are 3 excellent courses within 20 min.-oakwood in lake wales($17 for 9,$32 for18 including cart &taxes);& 2 courses with moderately higher rates withion the confines of haines city,grenelefe(2 courses) & diamondback-a bit of driving takes you to multiple other course in the area-the Lake Region country club in the adjoining town of lake hamilton,the site of a professional ladies futures tour tournament each mar., offers seasonal memberships-free tennis is available on 4 little used courts in nearby lake wales at beautiful crystal lake park-which also has shuffleboard & along hiking/biking trail around the lake-more extensive biking is available (20 or more miles each) on 8 paved biking trails in & around orlando,the "cadillac" of which is the west orange trail beginning at killarney(oakland),just west of orlando-we've ridden it many times,commonly stopping for lunch at one of the many eateries along the trail in winter garden(the trail runs through the downtown)
-dinners are available within walking distance of the home at the sun air golf club-the neighboring town of winter garden has all of the large chains(olive garden,red lobster,carabbas,outback,etc.) &many other restaurants -our favorite place for a special evening out is Le coq au vin,4800 s. orange ave. in south orlando-the area abounds with lakes-the home is located a stone's throw from huge lake pierce-many other lakes are nearby - fishing & boating are probably available,but we had too many other things to do-disney world is about 1/2 hr. away
Families with Teenagers,
Families with Young Children,
Owner's Response: "We really liked to have you accomodated for three months, 3 years on a row. Thanks for the nice and well formulated review. You're always welcome again. Time for new experiences under the Florida sun. As you wrote me; you had more to add so I will do it for you 'especially about the friendliness of the neighbors & the neighborhood party(we had a great time),but I ran out of review space-I made one error,which I didn't recognize until too late-towards the end of the review,I referred to the town of winter garden when I meant to say winter haven- there seemed to be no easy way to edit or correct this-I hope it won't be to confusing- it's been great here-there are recreational opportunities galore nearby, though you have to dig sometimes a bit to find some of them-I hope my comments on your website will make it a bit easier for future tenants & will generate enthusiasm for this fine home-we hope we have been good renters,as you have certainly been a good owner
Dear Hugh, we hate to see you go, you were a very good renter and thank you a lot for that, Alexia "
