Keywords: Lakefront Guest Apartment that overlooks pool and lake. Beautiful, relaxing lakefront setting that we call paradise. We think you will agree.
We have lived in this area since 1983 and purchased this property in 1998. We raised our two children here, and now enjoy family gatherings here as well. Since the children have left the nest to raise their own families we have been renting the guest apartment since 2008.
Steve Rushing purchased this apartment in 1998
My wife and I fell in love with this lakefront property when we first saw it in 1998. We were actually getting bids from contractors to build a new house on another piece of property we purchased several years earlier, but that property was not on a lake. When we saw this property we decided it was perfect for us even though it needed extensive renovations. Looking back on our decision to sell the land and purchase this house on the water was the right decision. We both love our lakefront paradise.
You can enjoy a beautiful sunrise from the apartment balcony or a sunset from the dock. You can see satellite launches from the space coast on clear days or nights. You can see water skiers run the ski course. You can see some form of wildlife whether it be ducks, heron, ospreys, hawks, eagles, birds, turtles etc... You can fish, swim in the pool or lake, enjoy the hot tub, use the canoe or paddle board, sit in the hammock, or just relax while staying at this waterfront environment.
Central location allows driving to Disney, Universal Studios, Kennedy Space Center or the Beaches in less than an hour. UCF, Rollins College, and Winter Park are within 20 minutes by car. Grocery, restaurants, and other shopping conveniently located within 5 minute drive.
We feel incredibly lucky to be able to enjoy our lakefront paradise on a daily basis. Most renters that stay here seem to feel the same way. Many enjoy our property so much they have become repeat renters.
I'm going to post this again and hope it doesn't disappear again--sorry Steve. My two 14 year old daughters and I stayed at this apartment during a family reunion. Where to begin? From the warm reception on arrival to the minute we pulled out of the driveway to head home, Steve and his family were phenomenal. There but not obtrusive and very helpful. They couldn't do enough and made us feel very welcome.
The apartment was wonderful and convenient to everything. Nicely decorated, the beds were very comfortable, there was a washer and dryer Steve let us use, the furniture was new and the kitchen well stocked. Steve provided paddle boards for our use and the pool and hot tub were very welcome at the end of the day. I could go on and on so let me just say if you are traveling to the Orlando area don't hesitate to book this apartment.
Fantastic lake view property. The apartment is completely self contained but it was good to know that the owners lived adjacent and were available to help if necessary. Meeting them was really nice and we had a chat several times although they were never intrusive - just friendly and this was very nice.The apartment was fully equipped and very comfortable. The view over the lake was quite beautiful and the seating outside overlooking it was wonderful as well as the terrace area outside the apartment which was private to the occupiers and a real bonus. The swimming pool was a good amenity as well as the owner's permission to use his barbecue.
We had a wonderful stay here and cannot recommend it highly enough.
My husband, daughter and myself stayed for a week in this beautifully decorated apartment. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed. The bedding was luxurious and so comfortable. Even the second bedroom was very comfortable. Steve the owner was very generous allowing us to use the paddle boards. My daughter had a great time on the private lake. My husband and I were not as adventurous so we enjoyed the beautiful warm pool. So much to do in Winter Springs and Steve had pages of suggestions for activities and restaurants. I hope to return to Winter Springs again and would love to stay in this apartment again.
Our first adventure as snowbirds brought us to Winter Springs. What a lucky find! The apartment truly matched the pictures and description and the large balcony overlooking the private lake presented a perfect place for reading or enjoying the view. It was a pleasure looking at the lake first thing each morning for the 4 weeks that we were here. Everything was top notch and the owners have thought of all the little extras that could possibly be needed. Steve made the stay so pleasant—offering local tips, checking to see if everything was ok, giving fishing advice. This was so much better than a condo could possibly have been--privacy, beautiful landscaping, pool, lake, canoeing, fishing, balcony and dock.
While there we enjoyed golfing, fishing, canoeing, local restaurants, state parks, botanical gardens, Daytona tour. There are several good walking areas away from the 4 lane highways.
We HIGHLY recommend this rental!
This lakefront property was absolutely perfect for my parents, boyfriend and I when we were in town visiting family this past weekend! I had been in search of a location that would give us the comforts of home for 4 days - because there are times you just don't want to stay in a hotel. When I stumbled upon this listing, I couldn't have been more impressed by the beautiful lakefront view and the perfectly kept property, I thought it was too good to be true - but that was exactly what we found (and more) upon our arrival!! Steve and his wife have the most beautiful home, and they are more than welcoming to their visitors. We had a late flight into Orlando from Pittsburgh, and he waited up to make sure he could give us a tour of the house and know that we were settled in for the night without needing anything else or having any questions about anything.
Waking up every morning to the gorgeous Lake Howell and all of the lush greenery that surrounds their home, truly made you feel like you were at some sort of private resort - the beautiful scenery as well as Steve's hospitality made it incredibly hard to leave on Sunday! My Dad and Boyfriend made good use of the fishing dock that sits off the back of their property and my Mum and I loved the many cozy Adirondack Chairs and the hammock that were nestled around the home. Steve also keeps the pool and hot tub spotless - I wish we would have had more time while we were there to get a relaxing pool day in, but our four days were packed with family events.
I am very much looking forward to our return to Orlando, because now I won't have to worry about finding a place to stay each time we travel down there. This rental is within minutes to so many restaurants, grocery stores, shopping areas, etc - but as soon as you pull into the home, you are in paradise! Thank you Steve, we can't wait to stay with you again! Let us know when you are in Pittsburgh!!
Our Family would definitely stay here again. Steve, Meredith, and Miss Abby we loved our stay with you. Accomodations were great and all the suggestions were very helpful. We can't think of one thing that was not right about this vacation. We wish we didn't have to leave! Hopefully we will be back soon.
