About Nancy Heusted

The rental property is next door to our home. The rental home became available for purchase this year and we wanted to increase our acreage next to our property. Our home with the rental property is situated on a combined 7 acres. Approximately 1/2 of the property abuts wet lands and Cypress Creek. We have the unique setting of being located off SR52 (major 2 lane highway) for easy access but live among many birds, squirrels, trees, flowers etc. for a beautiful Florida setting. Rural without being rural. We have fenced in the rental home to make it more pet friendly but all are welcome to explore the property among the live oak trees.

Nancy Heusted purchased this house in 2012

Very Clean and comfortable. Quiet country setting.

  • 5 of 5

At first glance, the outside is neat and clean but nothing special would grab your eye. GO INSIDE and it's WOW! You're not renting a spacious, ultra modern home, but everything you need is in this home with more than enough room for two couples or a family of four. My wife and I were very happy with this choice and would definitely come back here to stay again.

Not very comfortable

  • 1 of 5

The place looked clean but there was a putrid smell in the house. It smelled like an animal had died inside it. The toilets would not flush properly & had to use a plunger on them. A note said they were low flush toilets, but that is not what the problem was. There looked & smelled to be sewage leaking in the side yard, I think their sewer was full. Fortunately we only stayed 2 nights, would not have stayed longer.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at The Tree Tops over the holidays while visiting family. It felt like a home away from home. Our dog loved the fenced in yard too :)

Awesome experience

  • 5 of 5

A over all great experience. We stayed here in the interim of selling our house and closing on the new one and could not ask for anything better. Great location, near the highway.

Perfect for Parents Weekend

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Tree Tops recently during St. Leo University's Parents Weekend celebration while visiting my daughter at school. Nancy's home is perfectly situated near school, where few other overnight accommodations exist. The home was just as pictured and had everything necessary for a great stay. The home was very clean and well appointed with comfortable beds and seating. I enjoyed having my coffee on the porch watching the chickens and other birds (including a bald eagle). I would recommend this home to anyone staying in the area and can't wait to come back next spring.
