Wine and dine in restaurants where the English accent is still a novelty and queuing is a rarity. Carefree shopping, without inflated prices. Golf is great - its built around the villa - designed by a Scotsman. The antique quarter with all its interesting shops. The Lakeside village just 20 minutes away with shops restaurants and the huge Cobb movie Imax Theatre. Also the Convention Centre and Major League Baseball Stadium. Why not visit both coasts, as Clearwater is only 60 mins and Cocoa Beach 90 mins. Lakeland is really easy to get to from either Orlando or Tampa Airports 50 mins from either one or 80 mins from Sanford. The Interstate 4 runs through Lakeland and Sandpiper Golf and Country Club is mins off exit 33. No crowds and real America, but if you want the hurly burly of Orlando it is a short drive away. It even has its own Safari Park which offers 2 hour safari bus rides giving up close and personal wild animal experiences. Lakeland is a secret to be discovered.
Hi my name is Jill. I live in Cambridgeshire and I teach at a local secondary school.
Mrs J Clarke purchased this house in 1994
My family and I have stayed at this property and continue to return for our subsequent times to Florida - I have just contacted Jill to stay again next year! The property is spacious, comfortable and perfect for a family or couples wanting to remain near enough to the main attractions that one visits Florida for - such as the theme parks and beaches, but the property is also based within a beautiful community where there are on-site leisure facilities and activities to also entertain for those less crazy touristy days!
Our typical day would be to get up, visit the onsite pool or my husband and son play a round of golf, before venturing out for the day and then return and have a nice stroll to the large nearby supermarket to grab dinner, to then have a nice evening swim before settling in for the evening and putting the kids to bed. The property and surrounding community is so relaxing and welcoming that you will feel as though it is just a more perfect version of home.
Jill is also so amenable and easy to liaise with and her prices great value for the property and it's location that I don't think we would consider staying anywhere other then Sandpipers.
Brilliant home, very clean and well equipped. Just a couple of things which would have made our stay!
I................Safe in house
aprtment from those small issues I would use it again!

Central to many tourist locations. 60/70 minutes from Clearwater. 90 minutes from NASA. Very central location for all Florida. In the middle of a highly maintained Golf and Country Club on the North Side of Lakeland. Lakeland is a tranquil hidden gem, real America, with all the shops, restaurants, Golf, beautiful lakes,but with out the tourism, yet still close to it if needed. Other Activities: All that Disney, Universal and Busch could offer plus the peacefulness of a country club Golf: The Golf & country Club is a 18 hole Scottish links style course, it rolls between the villas which are cleverly scattered along the fairways. The cost from $16 per round including golf cart. Golf equipment can be hired. Golf lessons can be arranged with the resident golf pro.
