About John or Cindy Lombardo
We live in the Villa on the other side and we have our fur Baby, Boo which is a Pekingnese . We have lived here for over 20 years. We love to grill out in the summer and lounge out by the pool. So we are always home building something, cleaning something or relaxing in the back yard. My husband, John is semi-retired and I still work in Lake Placid. We both love people and we always look forward to a new neighbor.
John or Cindy Lombardo purchased this Villa in 1991
Why John or Cindy Lombardo chose Sebring
For all of the Race Enthusiast the Sebring International Raceway is 4.8 miles from the front door. Very easy to get to. The neighborhood is an older development and we love the variety of homes both old and new. We know all of the puppies in the neighborhood and we are lucky that most of them are smaller dogs. It is honestly quite peaceful here. We love watching the Osprey and the Bald Eagles fly around and the family of blue birds that come back every year to raise their family. In the summer and most of the winter months we are always outside planning the next project we want to do in our yard.
What makes this Villa unique
The Garden of Eva..If you love to garden as much as we do then you are welcome to play in our garden. We call our garden "The Garden of Eva" and our "Memory Garden." Eva Grace is the 6 year old Grand baby that was diagnosed at 4 months old with SMA, stage 1. Eva lives in CT and this is our way of being close to her. She is disabled and can't talk, eat, breathe or walk on her own, but her little mind is sharp. We try to design things that we feel would occupy and amuse her mind when she comes to visit. We have a lot of shiny things, fairies, wizards, wind chimes, flowers, water fountains - you name it you may find it in our garden for our little Angel. There are a lot of items that we have inherited that has been packed away for many years because we don't have the heart to get rid of them, so they have been incorporated in our yard so that we are able to enjoy them daily. If Mother Nature takes them from us - we were able to enjoy them more than we would have previously. Our garden needless to say is definitely on the whimsical side, but it represents all we cherish in this world - our family. We have had Weddings in our garden and they've turned out so spectacular. As of January 1 we have opened up our Garden for parties for your little girl(s). Tea parties, bridal parties, graduation parties, anniversaries and best of all Weddings. You can go on facebook to our page "The Garden of Eva" and check out some of the pictures of the garden. It changes almost daily. We continually add to our garden with Eva in our hearts and always on our minds. For Weddings we have plenty of parking, places for serving your meals, DJ services available, different spots in the yard you would like to have a ceremony and entertainment for your guest. If you occupy the rental you have 2 restrooms available for your guest, a place to get ready and even a romantic place to spend your honeymoon.

This was my first VRBO and it was fantastic! Jon and Cindy are a delight and their home is comfortable and inviting. Thank you for sharing your home with us.
Thank you Ashlee. You were such a sweet guest, hope you come to visit again.
We highly recommend this oasis
The villa is beautifully furnished and the yard and gardens are spectacular! Loved the pool!
Everything you need and more is available! The hosts were available and helpful whenever needed. We left feeling we were saying goodbye to friends.
We heartily recommend this delightful place.
Thank you for the review. It was our honor to host you guys and Teddy at your home away from home. We hope to have you back in the very near future. We’ve always been so lucky to have wonderful guests and you guys are top of our list of those that has crossed our paths and we will truly miss you. Hurry back.
Great place. Great owners!! Great location!
This was our second time staying with the Lombardo’s. It gets better every time! They have a wonderful place with a very unique backyard that includes a pool! It’s a very quiet area but, close to downtown Sebring (about10 miles away) and only a mile away from a very nice golf course. Sebring has a lot of restaurants to choose from, our favorite was Cody’s Roadhouse. Lots of lakes in the area if you’re a fisherman.
We loved it here so much. Thank you John and Cindy!!
We are so happy that we were able to get closer to both of you this year and look forward to seeing you next year in your new home. Boo misses Brandy too, he's been moping since you left. Hope y'all have an awesome summer. See you both next fall.

Clean and Comfy
Home was neat as a pin. Nice dishes, silverware, linens. Cindi and John have an eclectic back yard which my miniature dachshund enjoyed exploring.b They are right when they say just bring the groceries. We had a good time in the pool and just relaxing. Try it, you'll like it.
Thank you so much for your review. I'm so happy you guys enjoyed yourselves. We have been without internet and really busy with the damage from the hurricane. I hope you didn't have damage from Irma. Please come back anytime. We would love to have you again.

Excellent cozy little place
Love staying here ! My family enjoyed the swimming pool and cooking out on the patio. The garden area is a very special place and you can feel the love that went into making it.
Thank you for the review and the lovely gift you left. We loved having you here again and look forward to having you back next year. Your children were the best, you hardly knew they were here. Take care and God Bless.
Wonderful trip!! We did not want to leave!!!!
I came across this home when I was planning a trip with my 87 year old grandmother and her twin sister to see family in Sebring. We could not have asked for a better place to stay. When we booked our stay we did not know that our family only lived a block away, so it could not have worked out better. John and Cindy were wonderful hosts and were always available if we had a question, yet gave us enough space so we could enjoy our vacation without the feeling of someone hovering over you. This was my first experience with VRBO and it was definitely a positive one and I will definitely use the service again. We enjoyed being able to sit in the garden and enjoy the outdoors by the pool. It has a very "homey" feel and is definitely a "home away from home." We were sad when our time was up and we had to leave. We are already planning another trip!!
Thank you Celina, what a wonderful surprise. You guys were great guests and we hope to see you again in the future. You take care of your precious grandmother and her sister and your home away from home awaits you all. God Bless.
