One Week Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The physical location (about 20-25 minutes from Universal) was not our first choice, but in the end, it was really our only choice.

The house, the land, the lake made for the perfect combination of peace and quiet that we ultimately sought out. After a long day at the parks, returning to the house was something we looked forward to... take a dip, lounge in the wonderfully manicured backyard, grill on the back porch. RInse, wash, repeat... we found ourselves in this pattern almost everyday.

Despite the owners being in the UK, they were extremely attentive when a minor glitch popped up. Rest assured they have locals taking great care to ensure that all our needs were met and in a timely fashion.

If your kids need to see Mickey every waking moment of every day, then by all means stay on site at Disney, but if you would also like to enjoy YOUR vacation, this is not a treat to miss out on.

Good Value, Roomy Home

  • 4 of 5

Nice location--close to Orlando, but situated in a quiet little neighborhood. We really enjoyed the bike path across the street, which conveniently leads to a CVS just 1/2 mile or less down.

We enjoyed the ping-pong and pool table in the game room, and the kitchen has many more staple items provided than the house we stayed at on our previous vacation (which did not even have a salt shaker!)

The only reason for the four stars is that the furnishings could be updated, and the information packets on the tables contain some pretty out of date flyers (i.e. Disney ticket prices).

Recommended especially for young families.

BEAUTIFUL LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5

The location of this property is a real gem. It's in such a quiet neighborhood, near the end of a dead end, and on a beautiful little lake. It is also so convenient to shopping, restaurants, and major highways. We so enjoyed our week at this house, waking up each morning to have breakfast in the Florida room overlooking the spacious backyard leading down to the lake. The kitchen is supplied with everything we needed, and we appreciated the lovely gas grill on the back patio. We paid to have the pool heated and that made it enjoyable to frequently use. Our family in Orlando came to visit often, and we all thoroughly enjoyed the game room. This really is a property that can be enjoyed by many age groups! There are even different sized bicycles to use and fishing poles, too! The owners have really provided some nice amenities for their visitors. Even though the owners live in England, they immediately respond to emails and are very pleasant to deal with. We really enjoyed our time here --- so much, in fact, that we're already rebooking for next year!

A slice of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, myself and our 3 young boys stayed here for 5 nights. The house is situated on a quiet dead end street with a bike path across the street.

From the time you walk in you are greeted by large rooms and lake views.

We loved being able to put the boys to bed upstairs and spend our evenings in the 4 seasons room that overlooks the lake.

The kitchen was stocked with any cooking amenity you would need, as well as the game room. There were bikes, fishing poles (for the fully stocked lake) high chairs, kids toys, pool and ping pong table.

The pool area was also stocked with pool toys and comfy chairs.

This home is close to local restaurants and ice cream shops. As well as local hang out spots like Wekiva state park and Island.

Wifi was wonderful, the TV had Netflix, and there was everything you would need if you needed to work from the house.

Overall, we were extremely comfortable here, and it was sad to say goodbye. We will be back for sure!

Great location...Great house

  • 5 of 5

We are relatively new snowbirders and found this property to be a wonderful winter getaway. The location is great...just a few minutes from grocery stores, WalMart and restaurants. We really enjoyed hiking and biking on the trail that was across the street. There are several state and county parks very close which have great programs, as well as trails and boat rentals.

Our favorite room was the sunroom on the lake-side of the house. This room has its own heating and a/c so it is comfortable no matter what the weather. Watching all the different birds was delightful. There is a tree stump that attracts different woodpeckers and we saw a bald eagle in the yard next door.

We found the house clean. The owners were very responsive to our email requests.

We definitely recommend this property and hope to return.
