About the property

450Sf Guest Suite Sleeps 2

This beautifully decorated guest suite located right on Lake Killarney in the heart of Winter Park is the perfect get away. The 450sf suite has a upscale separate bathroom. The rest of the open concept suite is separated by a sleeping area a living space a dining area and a well appointed kitchenette with everything you will need to prepare a nice meal. There is a lovely private landscaped patio just outside the suite where you can relax and watch the variety of wild life that the lake has to offer. It is so peaceful you will have no choice but to relax upon your arrival. If you are here for vacation, work or a special occasion you picked the right spot.

Killarney Suite is just 2 miles away from Park Ave. We have our Saturday morning farmers market, the Winter Park scenic boat tour, the Morse Museum, Art Festivals and so much more. Park Ave. is the favorite locals spot for great restaurants, shopping or just taking a stroll.

We are located just 30 to 45 minutes to most of our great beaches. 30 minutes to all of our theme parks, Disney, Sea World, Universal etc.

If you are a golf enthusiast the Orlando area has many great courses to choose from.

My Husband Harry and I worked on private yachts for 14 years; Harry was the captain and I was the chef/stewardess. We traveled extensively through out the years and always looked forward to returning to our home in Winter Park. I hope that you will feel like ours is your home away from home too.

About Lois Huffman

My husband and I have been married 29 years. Harry has 2 children and I have 2 children. Combined we have 6 grandchildren all girls. We raised them all in Winter Park. We are a water oriented family. After the kids were all grownup Harry & I decided to change our lives and work on privately owned Yachts. Our friends thought we would only last a year. Well we lasted 14 years. We traveled all over the world from the islands of the Caribbean, the Greek islands, Vancouver, Montreal, France, Spain and more. We are now back home in Winter Park and loving it.

Lois Huffman purchased this studio in 1997

Why Lois Huffman chose Orlando

We purchased this property because Harry lived on Lake Killarney as a child and wanted to move back on the lake.

The house on the property was originally built in 1935 and was a bar. It was a hang out for Rollins College students. The house was not in good shape so we tore it down and Harry rebuilt.

What makes this studio unique

It is a very peaceful place with a beautiful lake view.

We love sitting out and just looking at the lake.

Beautiful studio on Lake Killarney

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in the Killarney Suite. From the moment you pull into the parking space, you are treated to a beautiful view of Lake Killarney and a spacious and lovely patio area all to yourself that overlooks the lake. Beautiful plantings enhance the view.

Inside, no expense has been spared to transform a relatively small space into a comfortable home away from home. The suite is impeccably decorated, the bed is incredibly comfortable, and the high ceiling and clever placement of everything you would need is amazing. Wifi is perfect, and there is plenty of room for clothing and a work area for your laptop. It's just about a 10 minute drive to downtown Winter Park in one direction, and 5 minutes to major highways with access to attractions both north and south.

The owners live in an adjoining property. You have complete privacy, but they are available if necessary to answer questions and give advice.

Beautifully decorated and very functional private suite right on Lake Killarney. My husband & I really enjoyed the quiet patio; whether reading, sunning, or dinning - all with the peaceful sounds & views of the lake. The Park Ave section of Winter Park is a short Uber ride away for lovely shops, museums, churches, and a fabulous assortment of restaurants.

What an incredible place to vacation! My husband and I stayed for the weekend and we didn't want to leave! Every detail about the property is just perfection! We spent our days relaxing on the patio looking at the crystal clear lake. Wonderful location - close to everything you could possible need! We can't wait to go back next year! If you are staying in Winter Park, do not pass up this gem!!

What a lovely surprise we had when driving up to this lovely property. The studio is situated right on the shore of Lake Killarney and the outside area is stunning. We enjoyed taking our breakfast on the patio while watching life on the lake. I swam in the lovely warm lake and Lois and Harry were happy for us to use their canoe.

The interior is decorated to a high quality. There is plenty of cutlery and crockery. Although there isn't a cooker, a microwave and hot plate are provided, which were adequate for us. We loved the coffee machine with its selection of coffee capsules. The bed is very comfortable and the shower excellent. There are plenty of good quality towels. Lois and Harry even provide extra toiletries incase someone forgets anything. The little extras provided are another lovely aspect of this property.

There are a number of restaurants within easy walking distance, and we enjoyed meals at PJ Changs and The Cheesecake Factory. It is also easy to reach the I4 which was great for exploring this beautiful area of Florida.

We will definitely return to this property if we visit Florida again and I will recommend it to anyone staying in the area.
