I am a geologist who has worked in the US, Canada and Europe. I now live with my 100 year old father and twocats. I enjoy traveling and get away often on short trips. I am always looking for unique vacation experiences. Sometimes I choose to go for the adventure - like Death Valley or dog sledding in Finland or Montana - and sometimes I go for the museums - love those of London, Paris, Saint Petersburg (Russia), New York, Amsterdam and The Hague.

My father, who was born in Alabama in 1913, has lived in the Winter Park area since 1922. Until recently he lived in the condo complex also. Although he has seen the greater Orlando area transform tremendously over the years, he reminds me that Winter Park has been fortunate to preserve its culture and charm.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2006

I grew up in the area and purchased this property because I loved its location and old Florida feel.

I can tell you it's not easy to find lakefront property in Winter Park that isn't occupied by a historic home or new MacMansion. It is even harder to find a home on a large private lake that delivers a sunset view every evening!

When I found this property, I purchased it to be my future retirement home. However, my father who was elderly, but still independent, wanted to live near me. He bought the unit below this one and we then both moved in to our separate condos. A little over a year ago we moved to my house to be under one roof and that is how my condo became a VRBO property.

I have many friends in the complex and do look forward to the day I can move back, but in the meantime, I hope that you too can enjoy this unique location.

This place is close to everywhere of interest and in walking distance of all conveniences!

* Just come home and relax to look out on to the water.

* Go for a swim in lakeside pool.

* BBQ in park and enjoy dinner lakeside.

* Walk to movies or to Park Avenue for evening of dinning or shopping

I love early mornings seeing the sun light up the far side of the lake, watching birds in the trees outside the master bedroom and seeing spectacular sunsets every night.

Great restaurants, movie theaters and bars are all within walking distance.

A Little Haven of Old Florida in the midst of Lively Winter Park

My husband and I loved our stay here. The owner has modernized the condominium while maintaining its Old Florida character. It is spotlessly clean, as well as thoughtfully, comfortably and creatively furnished. You can tell it is loved. She is also extremely conscientious about responding to any questions or issues you might have. The view is magnificent, a rare treat, and the location is just perfect. You are close to all kinds of great restaurants, shopping, Rollins College and more. Interstate 4 is also a short drive, so you can readily get to other locations -- we were visiting family and friends that are scattered all over Central Florida. I hope to stay here again!

We rented this condo for a client of ours who needed to stay in Winter Park for several weeks. The owner was incredibly friendly, helpful, and accommodating throughout the entire process, from booking to check-out. Our client had everything they needed, and the condo was impeccable in every way. Everyone was happy! Will absolutely keep in mind for future stays, and would recommend to anyone in a heartbeat.

My daughter and I wanted an apartment or condo near Rollins College rather than a hotel room to enable us to get her organised for the beginning of her freshman year as an international student. The apartment was very bright and clean and offers a perfect location for a short walk to Winter Park Village with all the shops and restaurants and a short drive to Park Ave and Rollins College itself.
The owner greeted us after a delayed international arrival and was very helpful. I will definately be back in the future!

We stayed here for three months and just loved it. The open floorplan lets you view the pool and lake from most of the rooms. It is perfect for 2-3 people. The sunsets are beautiful! The condo is close to all you need - grocery, restaurants, shops and movies. Minutes away from downtown Winter Park, Orlando and the theme parks. We have already reserved for next year!
