Greg and his family have owned this home since 2002. They are avid skiers and wakeboarders and this home provides the perfect setting for boating and watersports. This property consistently receives top reviews for its location and amenities.
The Owner purchased this house in 2002
We bought this property because it combines a beautiful lakefront setting with boating and jet skiing with the closeness of being able to get to the Orlando theme parks in about 30 minutes. Additionally, this home has views of the lake from two sides and a very large pool and hot tub. This home is also close to Lakeland and Tampa and central to the beaches on the east and west coasts.
This home is the perfect place to just unwind and relax. We wake up in the morning and sit out on the patio drinking our coffee while we watch the lake and wildlife. We love to play games and there are many things to do inside the home like play pool, foosball, ping pong, darts, etc. which the kids love. Also, the pool is huge and we love to float around or watch the kids do tricks from the diving board. We love to go boating, and our lake is one of the cleanest lakes in all of Florida. Eagle lake is excellent for watersports and fishing. Everytime we visit this home we hate to leave!
We were in town for a waterski event with friends. Planned on just finding a place to just have beds to crash on after days of waterskiing, and nights out... We were so comfortable at the house that we never even bothered going out after our busy days on the water. Sitting by the pool and having drinks with some good friends. Enjoying the pool and hot tub until all hours of the night. Great quiet neighborhood, and on the end of a court where we didn't bother anyone with our late nights sitting outside, or the early mornings that we had to be up and pack up our equipment.
Not in the middle of any town where it is easy to walk anywhere, but we were within 20 minutes of anywhere we needed to be at. Also there are a few Uber's available, and more on weekends if you do need to get a ride anywhere.
We would gladly rent this home again if we are to return to the area!
This is a lovely property on a lake as advertised but that is where the description ends. The home was greatly overrated. It is a large house which is nice but the property has been horribly neglected. The carpets were filthy. The kitchen table is large with adequate chairs but the couches and recliners are completely worn out. The windows are very dirty inside and out. The mattresses are worn and the bedding, although clean is well used. Upon arrival two of four toilets were broken and a third bathroom had no lights for our entire stay. The gas bar BBQ was completely burned out. The dock is a great place to view the lake from but is also in need of repair. Several rotten boards. The pool and hot tub are a nice size but the deck had to be swept and washed to remove mildew before we let the kids play out there. The solar heating system for the pool was also broken. The pool table and air hockey games are garbage. The yard is in need of maintenance and cleaning. We arrived at the home late in the evening and were disappointed with what we found but because we had friends and family also arriving we chose to make the best of a bad situation. This was a mistake because the owner took this to mean everything was ok. He did respond to our call about the broken toilets and bar bq but never did address the pool solar leaks. From the beginning of our stay we could hear animals in the attic which we thought were squirrels as there are several. These turned out to be what the exterminator called a rat infestation ! Once again the owner responded to our call but offered no alternate accommodations or assistance for a problem that the exterminators report confirmed had existed for months. We paid good money for what was to be a dream vacation and ended up in this mess. The owner will be quick to respond and tell you that he fixed the toilets or the bar bq and had an exterminator in but that doesn't change our experience. These problems should have been fixed before paying guests arrive. This owner is very reactive but won't fix anything without a complaint. As a vacation renter you deserve better. We have used other VRBO properties and have had great experiences. The issue with this property is the neglect of the owners. All the neighbouring properties are subject to the same environmental conditions but this property stands out
Everything was in working order. Could use new mattresses and bed linen. Also could really use a good cleaning on the outside, windows were very dirty. Overall we enjoyed our time here.
The house was a great size to house our high school baseball team. We loved the private pool, the deck to fish off of, the beautiful lake-side view and the comfortable accommodations. This was a great experience and we hope to secure this property again next year.
We have stayed at this home several times now and have yet to be disappointed! I wish I could include the pictures of the sunset that we witnessed while eating dinner on the porch. WOW! The home was clean and spacious. We had 7 teenage boys staying for our sons birthday party and the house was perfect for this type of gathering. We were able to bring our boat to tube, wake board, knee board, etc. with minimal traffic from other boaters on the lake (Only one other boat on the lake all weekend). Furniture has been recently updated, very nice. The owners were accommodating and very informative in regards to check in/check out process. Every time we have used the home we can't wait until our next time back. Our kids keep asking, "When are we going to use that home again?". Perfect family "Get Away"!
Our family and 2 other families came down together for the AAU Florida taekwondo tournament held at Polk State College. We had a really fabulous stay. The house is clean, open, and relaxing. There was plenty of room for everyone to have their space, but there was also nice living spaces to share. We played cards, shot pool, swam, and hung out in the hot tub. The view of the lake each morning was beautiful! For dinner, Giovanni's is great, and they deliver! I would highly recommend this property.
