About David Short
We are lake rats, whenever we aren’t working we are out on the boat with our kids, friends and family.
David Short purchased this House in 2015
Why David Short chose Earleton
We grew up in Florida and have traveled the world and we always come back to the fresh water, cypress trees and water oaks of Santa Fe lake. Driving down the dirt road to the house you immediately feel worlds away from the hustle and bustle and nestled in by the oak canopies and cypress views. Plenty of room to play and enjoy bird sightings, such as hawks, owls and bald eagles.
What makes this House unique
The canopy and breeze from the lake provide a surprising reprieve from Florida temperatures during the hot summer. Santa Fe Lake is ranked as one of the top 10 cleanest lakes in the state of Florida.

What a great house, the pictures on the site did not do it justice. So spacious and the lake was a wonderful sight. Plus it was an easy drive into Gainesville.
Spectacular Property... perfect amenties
The view was outstanding. The house was cozy and just perfect for our needs. We had two families come together and spend the weekend on the lake! Perfectly placed just a quick drive from Gainesville and Waldo. Easy to find, yet you feel like you are in the middle of your own plantation. Florida room with a great view of the lake to watch the afternoon summer storms come across Lake Santa Fe... spectacular sight. We hope to make this an annual getaway ... close enough for workers to still go to work but far enough to feel like you are on vacation!
Beautiful Lake View
We had a wonderful time.... The owners have a gorgeous piece of property on Lake Santa Fe... The home is amazing, plenty of room for entertaining,.. More than enough room for everyone to sleep...
Loved the morning view of the Lake ☀️
Great fun for the whole family!
We enjoyed our time at here! I can see us making a tradition of it! It was perfect for a family retreat. We were close enough to home that our children and grandchildren could join us through out our stay. It was nice having all of the kids toys available for our little ones as well. The kids especially loved the tire swing!
Ski, Swim, Fish and Entertain on Lake Sante Fe!
This is a fantastic spot for an old Florida family vacation. The house is huge, and very open, which is great for entertaining. The kitchen is well stocked with dishes, utensils and spices. Washer and dryer is also available. There is a nice dock with a great spot to moor a boat. The mooring spot had bumpers on the posts and ropes available. David was super available by text to respond to questions and simply fantastic to deal with. We skied, caught a couple bass off the dock, bbq’d every day, entertained guests and generally had a great time.
