About Dellynne Strawbridge
No big deal about me. My husband and I love being able to call ourselves Floridians, and we are so glad to be able to have this home in which we and others can rest and recuperate from the many things that weigh on us in this life. We love the solitude, and we also love that we are so near the wonderful chaos of sports, entertainment, adventure, and exercise. Best of all worlds, in our view. We are hopeful of sharing our experience with lots of other adventurers going forward.
Dellynne Strawbridge purchased this House in 2013
Why Dellynne Strawbridge chose Auburndale
Our good friend who built and lived in this home for years loved this house, and we are so thankful that when he felt he had to sell it he reached out to us to continue caring for the home he loved. So many details in the home underscore his commitment to building a home he could enjoy long term. Though we were sad he felt it necessary to move, we are so grateful he entrusted us with its care. We hope any who stay here will have a sense of Billy's love of excellence as they enjoy the home.
What makes this House unique
The house is on a spacious near acre, with access to and views of a beautiful and private Central Florida Lake, complete with the daily romance of take-offs and landings of several aquatic airplanes on the next door lake. We and our grandchildren love the fun of this ongoing wonder. We love being one mile from the Lake Myrtle Soccer/Baseball Complex, where there are tournaments and games all year round. If we ride along the 39 mile trail from that complex, we pass alpaca farms, cattle ranches, and miles of quiet and exquisite Florida landscape. We are so uniquely blessed to get to share this with our renters. If the Disney/Universal/Sea World adventures draw you, then you can be thankful that you are way less than a hour from all the above, and you will be glad to learn that the Tampa and Orlando Airports are both easily accessible from this great location. While enjoying this home, please feel free to wander over to the lakeside on the adjacent lot, and let us know if you want to enjoy the water mat or the balance boards while you are here. We may be able to accommodate 2 of you on our cycles for the nearby 39 mile trail.

What a blessing!!!
We were so blessed to have the opportunity to stay in your home during a very difficult time for our family. Thank you for everything especially the kindness shown us.
We are so glad that our home could be offered to this family, and it is our hope that it may have served to bring them some renewal and rest for the road they must travel in this season of life. We hope we can be of service to them on any future trips to this area. They, as all our renters to this point, left our home immaculately cared for. Thank you for treating our home with such thoughtfulness.
Awesome- would stay again in a heart beat!
Super comfortable and well equipped home. We were met by the owner who walked us through the home and made sure we were comfortable. Lots of nice touches we don't often see in other rentals. They had fruit, snacks and even some change for toll roads available to us. If you are looking for a nice, quiet place - this is it! Comfrotable beds, TVs in every room - not a negative thing to say! We will be back.
Great home and awesome hosts
A lovely home, by the lake and 2 wonderful hosts that did everything they could to make us feel at home. The house has terrific amenities, great location and is a great spot for relaxing with the family. We will be back.
Another wonderful family! What an amazing privilege to host people like these people. Our home was well cared for with this wonderful family living there, and we will be so glad to have them back again. Not only did they leave it clean and orderly, they chose to leave several items behind for our enjoyment. We are grateful to be able to be acquainted with such fine people as these. They will be wonderful guests wherever they go. Looking forward to their return whenever they get back this way.
Wonderful home and wonderful home owners!!!
This home was exceptional. We were greeted by the owners and taken through the house. Everything was immaculate and very roomy. The screened in porch seemed to be our favorite spot. They had left us lots and lots of snacks and food to get us started if we didn't make it to the grocery immediately. Even meet some of their neighbors who were very welcoming. Would give it the highest mark +10 more. If ever in this area again, I would definitely try to stay here.
We continue to feel so grateful for the privilege of meeting such amazing people as are the members of this family who stayed with us for their son's/grandson's baseball tournament. They were personable, appreciative, and thoroughly enjoyable for us. We are experiencing such a marvelous cross-section of this country's wonderful people, this group from several distant states we haven't gotten to spend much time visiting in our adult lives. They make us want to head their direction for the opportunity to be with such fine folks. Thank you so much for providing us with such a great experience in hosting your family. (And how wonderfully clean you left the house for us! Five star rating for your family!) Hope to see this family again and again!!
Fabulous - home away from home!
Best place to stay in Aburndale area! Lovely, well appointed, very comfortable home. It is near walking trails,the sports complex and Lake Arietta. So many thoughtful touches - our time there was so relaxing and we felt so pampered! Our hosts Dellynne and Rick we're so friendly, extremely helpful and super easy to communicate with. They went to great lengths to make our stay enjoyable and easy. Looking forward to a return visit!
amazing beyond belief
Everything about our stay at this property was amazing. The owners interaction was over the top. They went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. It was the cleanest rental I have ever stayed in. The beds were really comfortable, the kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed to cook for our family. The back porch was one of our favorite features of the home. It is a huge screened in porch with lots of seating, overlooking the lake with lots of trees. The home is located in a nice neighborhood great for walking and riding bikes. We definitely plan on staying here again.
Christina, Thank you very much for that kind review of our home. We are grateful you felt welcome and cared for. We so appreciate the care you took of our home and will look forward to welcoming you and your family again on any occasion our home suits your needs. We are so glad it worked out well for you this visit. Hope to see you again soon.
This home is ideal for relaxing and family enjoyment, indoors, in the spacious back yard, or by the lake on the well shaded lawn next door (also our home). It serves also as a perfect launching pad for activities nearby, as close as the multiple soccer and baseball fields a mile away, with access to the 39 mile walking/biking trail from their parking areas (Lake Myrtle Sports Complex), and almost equidistant to adventures in Tampa and Orlando, including Busch Gardens, Tampa Aquarium, Disney Theme Parks, Universal Studios, Sea World, Beaches on either side of the state, etc. On any given day during your stay, you can have a full day's adventure at one of many optional theme parks and still get home for a relaxing evening with family or friends. Or nearer, consider Fantasy of Flight within a 15 minute drive. If you come to Florida for Spring Training, you will like your access to multiple baseball venues: Lakeland, Winter Haven, Tampa and Orlando. Lake Myrtle Sports Complex has year round games featuring soccer, baseball, and even occasional LaCrosse. We absolutely love our homes in Auburndale and stay as often as our schedule and availability permit. Hope you will consider visiting next time you are Florida bound.
