If you are looking for a vacation in the Orlando area in a quite safe community with friends or family then you have found the place. We truly offer world class golfing, fresh water fishing, water-skiing with a certified measured slalom course and one mile runs across the lake for wake boarders. The area is known for its outdoor activities as one of the top places in the country for cyclist, and the annual triathlon in the fall. Only minutes from the home is the National Training Center for tri-athletes. An amazing fitness facility to sharpen your skills in any sport. We offer a private home where you can enjoy the sports, the area, the theme parks, the lake for skiing, wakeboarding or fishing, great restaurants close by and a quiet place to relax and watch the sunsets at the end of the day.

Drive time to the airport is less than 30 minutes.

Boats: We offer you two MasterCraft boats to choose from. For pure skiers we offer a new in 2009 197 Tournament ski boat with Zero Off and MCX 350 engine. For the dire hard wake boarders we offer the original and first boat ever used in the X Games a 2007 MasterCraft X-1. The ski boat is always available the wakeboard boat is there from October 15th to May 1st. We also allow our guest the unique opportunity to bring their own boat for skiing or fishing. We have our own ramp on our property so feel free to bring your boat. The boats are ride ready when you arrive but you are responsible for your own gas. We provide two portable gas tanks for gas and the convenience store is just down the street for gas.
Accommodations: My wife and I took and old Fl. home and turned it into our family water ski and wakeboard retreat. We put our effort into making the interior an open spacious and comfortable space with open views to the lake and a modern decor. We took two rooms and the original garage and turned this large space into and open kitchen, bar, dining and sitting area. We often sit 10 around our dining room table and there is room for more at the bar. The sitting (former garage) area features a stainless steel garage door with glass panes that allows you to sit back and enjoy the views of the lake or you can raise this door and open up the house to the outdoor patio that is over 20 feet wide and enjoy the mild spring like weather during what Orlando calls the winter months. We added a basketball court for the kids. Of course there is a grill to feed the gang. Back inside you will find all new appliances and kitchen supplies. There is one master bedroom at one end of the house and a guest bedroom at the other end with the third bedroom offering space for 4 kids or adults in full size custom built in bunk beds. This end of the home shares a full bath while the master bed room has its own. There is a pull out sofa in the den that sleeps two, along with a 42 inch Phillips LCD TV that has access to Dish Network and a DVD player for movies. There is also wireless internet access. There is one last sleeping spot that is highly coveted for its comfort and size on the day bed pictured in the hall. All these sleeping spots make it a great family vacation for one or two families or group of friends. There is a large utility room for your supplies that includes a new washer and large dryer. Towels & linens are provided. All you need is your toys i.e. golf clubs, skis, wakeboard, fishing equipment, road bike, or running attire. There is a tube on site for those less inclined to ski or wakeboard. Fishing from the pier is also popular but we ask that you absolutely do not fish in the ski or wakeboard boat. They are strictly water sports oriented and fishing in them is prohibited. There are some fishing supplies in the storage area. To top it all off we offer a very nice golf cart to get your supplies back & forth from the house to the pier on the lake.

I am an avid water skier as you can tell from this picture. My 3 boys are very accomplished wakeboarders. In the summer we teach wakeboaring and water skiing on the Outer Banks of NC. You can see pictures of us and the boats at our website obxwakeboardwaterski or through our booking agent in NC, Kitty Hawk Kites. We use our Fl. home to get our water skiing and wakeboarding fix in the winter months. Everyone whom has stayed at our home has loved it. We have attracted water skers, wakeboarders, cyclist, fisherman, golfers and families going to the theme parks as our guest. We hope you chose our home it is a great family vacation location offering someting for everyone in the quite, safe town of Montverde Fl.
The town of Montverde is a quite picturseque old Florida town reminding me of Mayberry made famous by the Andy Griffn show but still only minutes from everything
A quite lake. Rarely used. Beautiiful sunsets, birds. A beautiful location
