About Linda and Howard

We are Howard and Linda Pence. We have been very frequent visitors to Central Florida. We have spent many a vacation and holiday with family and friends enjoying the wonderful weather and the fabulous attractions in the Orlando area. We are now taking time to explore and discover all of the other things Florida has to offer, like antiquing, and exploring the many parks and gardens. With just an hour drive to Coco Beach and you'll get your fix of sun and sand. We love it here! We hope you will too!

Linda and Howard purchased this house in 2012

Why Linda and Howard chose Clermont Area

After viewing many homes in the area, we settled on Orange Tree because of the large lots, the well kept homes, and the fabulous orange groves. If you are here when the oranges are in season, pick them and use the electric juicer in the kitchen to make your own fresh OJ. There is nothing like fresh juice. Just walk out the back door and enter the grove to pick.

What makes this house unique

Our home is located a mere 15 minutes from Disney World. Another 15 minutes to Universal Studios. Other attractions, golfing and dining abound.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Upon entering this beautiful vacation home, we were thrilled that we selected

this particular home. The online photos were only a glimpse of what this home

has to offer.

Once inside, we were welcomed to a spacious and beautifully decorated home.

The formal diningroom and sitting area set the tone for the rest of the house.

The kitchen was equipped for any dinner that we wanted to prepare.

As we prepared our meals, our family members sat at either the granite top

breakfast bar, the dinnette area, or in the spacious livingroom while watching

our favorite shows.

We ate many meals on the enclosed lanai, next to the pool/hottub area.

This was our favorite relaxation spot.

For some of our family members, they chose to go to the gameroom and play pool.

Our six year old grandson had alot of fun playing at the video game console.

It was quite difficult which one of the 61 games he wanted to play.

We had a total of eight people with us, and not once were we crowded in any way.

Each one of the bedrooms were spacious and comfortable, with bathrooms convenient

for all of our use.

Being centrally located, we had a short drive to Disney, a state park, local shopping district,

specialty and grocery stores. If you want to see the beaches, Coco Beach is only an hour away,

as is the Gulf beaches.

If you are looking for a vacation home that provides cleanliness, comfort, relaxation, locality,

affordability, and attention to detail, then this is the home for you.

You will be glad you selected this home.

We look forward to going back again!!

Thank you for allowing us to stay in your home!!

Clean, organized, and great location

  • 5 of 5

The owners have thought of everything! The home is so well maintained and in a really great location for those wishing to visit Disney World! The items provided (starter kit) are so appreciated as we did not have to rush to the store to stock up. The pool and game room are great bonuses! We can't wait to visit again!

Absolutely incredible property!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived at this beautiful property we knew that we had made the right choice! Linda was perfect to deal with leading up to the vacation and during the whole week. She was very attentive to emails and any requests that we made. The house is decorated gorgeously and very top end. I've stayed in Orlando area 8 different times and this house if by far, the best I've ever rented. The pool area is immaculate. The definition of a tropical oasis. Absolutely no complaints at all and if we return to the Orlando area again next year, I will definitely book with Linda at her Sapphire Skies home in Orange Tree Community.

Wonderful Florida Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family thoroughly enjoyed a wonderful week at Sapphire Skies! Home is exactly as pictured and really did feel like our home away from home. I highly recommend the Clermont area if you are going to convenient and easy to get to from this neighborhood. This home is so roomy, clean and comfortable. The pool is amazing, as well as the large lanai...we spent most of our time there when we weren't out and about. The only negative, and not even a big deal, is the traffic noise. Again, not a big deal...we quickly got used to it and just enjoyed being in this beautiful home in sunny Florida. Thank you Linda for sharing your lovely home!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you Lori. We are very happy you were happy. It is a great home. To address the noise. Due to the road widening and the lanes going into one just beyond our home, the noise has gone up due to traffic slowdown and the road construction trucks. We are looking forward to the finalization of the upgrade, spring of 2018. We expect the noise to decrease once three lanes are running smoothly again. We do still enjoy that there are no rear neighbors, so the privacy accounts for a lot to us. Please come again! Linda

Natalie's final softball season

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on a Saturday in mid March 2017. The weather was cool I the mid 50's most of the week.

Super clean home well kept and maintained! Great for families as game room, pool and hot tub.

We hope to return again as close to Orlando and all the other great entertainment options throughout central Florida.

Thank you for allowing us to share your home.

great house!

  • 5 of 5

The house was super clean and we loved the floor plan. Linda was very accommodating. We left behind some toys and she was quick to respond and even mailed them to us on her dime. Loved the location, easy to get on Disney's property. The only issue we had was the thermostat would go up during the day and at night, got pretty warm.

Owner's Response: Thank you Jill. We're very happy to get your forgotten toys back to you. Thank you for being our guest. The AC does not go up automatically during the day. It will remain at your settings as long as all doors and windows remain closed. If doors and windows are left open, the AC will shut off. Once doors and windows are closed the AC clicks back on. Its an energy efficiency mode. According to the monitoring, reports, doors and windows were open during your stay. So it may appear that the AC went up. We strive to the best accommodation and service that can be given. Linda
