About Lois Huffman

Having lived in W.P. for 35 years has given me the opportunity to finally grow roots and call this my home. My children were born in W.P. Hospital and grew up enjoying the vast array of outdoor activities which can be done year round in the sunshine state.

We would pack up the car and spend the day in New Smyrna Bch. which is the beach of choice for the locals. The kids would build sand castles and surf.

The theme parks are an enchantment for the young and old alike. We had wonderful times visiting all the attraction here. Or we would just spend quality time home on the lake skiing, swimming and having delicious barbeques. The most valuable outcome was the active, healthy, quality time we had together as a family.

My family traveled extensively throughout the years and we always gravitated toward VRBO's for the space and convenience of being in a home rather than a hotel room.

Welcome to my home where I have made every effort to make your comfort a priority. Be safe and enjoy your Holiday in Orlando.

My assistant Lois who will be your guide during your stay has a very unique background. She was a chef and stewardess on private yachts for 14 years with her husband who was the captain. She traveled extensively around the world and has a wonderful sense of attention to detail. Anything you need she will do her best to make it happen.

Lois Huffman purchased this house in 2012

Why Lois Huffman chose Disney / Orlando

I purchased this property because I love the Winter Park area. My children and I still live here. It's location is central to everything one could want to visit and not be in the middle of all the hussel and bussel of the main attractions.

What makes this house unique

I gravitated to this property because of its old Florida living style. The home was built in a time when quality construction meant something. And the interior decor reflects that time. Everytime I was in the home it transports me back to a time when families spent time together.

Lovely Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here recently and the home is charming and well equipped with everything you need. Its nicely laid out, clean and very cute. The back garden is lovely, only wish the pool had been warm enough for my kids to swim. We had a lovely time at the home, relaxing after long days at Disney. Drive to the parks isn't bad, 30 mins to Universal, and 40-45 mins to Disney, but at the end of a very stressful, noisy park day, coming back to this quiet, private home was a real treat. Plenty of restaurants and shops nearby, unfortunately we ran out of time to fully explore the area... but definitely well worth a visit here.

Owner's Response: Michelle, Thank you for the lovely review. I am so glad you and your family enjoyed your stay at Dallas House. I hope you think of staying here again for your next trip to Winter Park and get the chance to explore the Winter Park area a little more. Lois

Great family home for Summer

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in Dallas house for 7 weeks over Summer, with my 5 year old daughter and we really found the house to be a great fit for us. Winter Park is a lovely suburb to stay in, lots of restaurants and parks/ playgrounds.

Our favourite thing at the property was the super sized backyard, pool and BBQ. This made for terrific times to relax and enjoy meals outside.

The main queen bedroom is a little small, as is the kitchen but not enough to worry us. Everything else was very good, including the always available and helpful Lois.

I highly recommend!

So GREAT!

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect house in a perfect location! We arrived in Winter Park for a Thanksgiving Family Reunion to the Wonderful Dallas House! The layout is great for families - plenty of room, plenty of privacy. A huge backyard. A great pool. Quiet neighborhood yet within walking distance of about anything you would want to do! We have rented a lot of vacation homes over the years and Dallas House comes out on top! The house was spotless and beautifully decorated. Comfortable beds, excellent linens, and all necessities considered. Kitchen fully stocked if you want to cook and many restaurants within walking distance if you don't! Lois and Linda were 100% responsive and available. Two thumbs up for a great experience. Thank you!

Great place!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a girls weekend here, including my 4-year old niece. The house is decorated beautifully and the lay out was perfect for us! My niece couldn't get enough of the pool and the back yard was such a relaxing and beautiful place for the adults to enjoy. The beds were so comfortable and the number of bathrooms made it so much easier for us to all get ready and have our privacy. There is nothing that I would change about this place! We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
