About Huguette and Jim Shouldice

We are both young at heart retirees who enjoy going to Disney, playing golf, eating out and relaxing by the pool.

Huguette and Jim Shouldice purchased this house in 2005

Why Huguette and Jim Shouldice chose Fairway Lakes

We chose this location because it is just a short distance to Disney, the area has dozens of challenging golf courses, and seemingly endless choices for shopping, dining out and recreational activities. Also, being only an hours drive from either coast, the Kennedy Space Centre (highly recommended), or to the Gulf coast beaches are within easy reach for day trips.

What makes this house unique

Although our home is close to the all the action, we love the peace and tranquility of our neighborhood. Especially after a busy day at the parks it is nice to get home to relax around the pool, or take the short walk to watch the sun set on Davenport Lake.

Property very clean and nice neighborhood

  • 3 of 5

This was a great place to stay with a family. We were unsure of the weather in March so we chose this central location in Florida. We were about an hour away from Cocoa Beach and a short distance to Sea World. We woke up every morning and decided whether to go to the Gulf side or the Atlantic side depending on the weather. The only issue we had was on arrival. We weren't given the right code to enter the property however the owners responded to my phone call in a timely manner. It was resolved quickly, however no one returned my call from VRBO. We had difficulty with the front door lock even with the new code. The garage door code emailed to us didn't work either. I definitely would not let that issue keep us from renting this home again. My parents who are elderly stayed with us. They were comfortable staying home and enjoying the property with their companion dog Ginger when they didn't want to drive or be on the go. It was an overall great experience.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, it is unfortunate that you were not given the proper code to access the house, we just put on a new lock before you came and we put in a new code for your arrival, unfortunately I forgot to change the code in the instruction letter we sent you. I had our property management company check the code for the garage and we were told it is working fine. I am glad that the issue was resolved quickly and that you enjoyed your vacation. Hoping to have you stay at our home the next time you visit the area.

Wonderful place to stay for our Disney trip

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience utilizing this house for our most recent trip to Disney. We have three kids - 7, 4, and 9 months and we brought my parents with us. The house was absolutely ideal for our stay. The two kings were great for the adults, the girls stayed in the themed room which they loved, and we set up the pack-n-play for the little guy who got his own room. The rooms are not huge, but like I said, they were ideally sized for us.

We found the house in good shape and it was very clean. Unfortunately, the neighborhood still had a lot of debris piled up on the side of the road from hurricane irma which was obviously very understandable and we hope the area continues to recover. We arrived fairly late for our first night and found our only challenge initially was finding the house, but once we identified which one it was, we were able to type in our key code with no problems at all.

The kitchen had plenty of cooking utensils and appliances for our needs, though we hardly ever ate anything other than breakfast at the house. Towels were available to use as well.

It was on the cool side for our side (though warm relative to where we came from) and thought for sure the pool would be cold as ice. We were very excited to find the pool temperature very comfortable for use. I wouldn't classify it as warm, but it wasn't cool either.

Our first time driving to the parks honestly felt like forever which was due mostly to our excitement making a 10 minute drive feel like an hour. However, the drive time is accurate, its only about 10 minutes which felt shorter each day we made drive over. On one day we came back mid day to use the pool and relax, but it does eat up a lot of time. If we were better planners, we would have planned an off day at the house. There were several activities to keep the kids engaged at the house.

Well, I think thats it! All in all, a very nice stay at a very reasonable price. Thank you Huguette for such a nice stay, we appreciated the hospitality!

PICK ME! THIS IS THE ONE! Very very clean, quiet, private and worth every penny!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at this property the week of September 9th, although we were greeted with hurricane Irma and had no power after only being there two days with power, it was an awesome vacation. The owners called to check on us several times and were very gracious to relocate us to a property that had electricity so we could salvage the two days that were left of our vacation.

This property is located very close to the airport , grocery stores, Walmart, Dollar Tree and anything else you could possibly need!

I would recommend this place to anyone!

If you are thinking about selecting another property over this one DON'T! This is the one!

Trust me you will not be disappointed! The screened in pool area was amazing for hanging poolside and gave us a place to hang out at night bug and critter free!

Kitchen has everything you need (literally everything) washer/dryer, grill, an awesome large 4K tv in the living room, tv's in all the bedrooms, more than enough towels, central ac and ceiling fans!

I really could go on and on about how pleased we were with not only the property but the owners as well!

Makes me sad that I'm writing this review because that means my vacation is over!

Can't wait to book this property again!

Thank you for the hospitality!

The Hansen Family 🤗�

Great Home

  • 5 of 5

House was great for a family vacation. Loved how quiet it was and felt removed from everything, but yet a short drive to Disney/area attractions. Loved that Cocoa Beach or Clearwater Beach driving distance as well. Nice home. Enjoyed the 'game room', the pool, the rooms were all nice as well. Unfortunately, we had lots of rain on our trip and stayed inside more than we had thought we would, but never was crowded for all 7 of us and our dogs :)
