About Andrea Bligh

My name is Andrea. I am married to Tony and have been together since 1994. We got married in May 2007. We have two wonderful kids called Millie and Reece age 9 and 7. Two dogs Tinkerbelle and Ben. They are King Charles Spaniels. We bought this house in Jan 2011. We fell in love with the house and its location.

Andrea Bligh purchased this in 2011

Why Andrea Bligh chose Haines City

We loved the location and relaxing approach to life the Floridian people seem to have. An ideal break from everyday life. With the parks for all the excitement and our beautiful home to unwind in. This place has everything.

What makes this unique

In Florida you nearly always get the sun. Most vacation homes have a private pool, extended decking all mod. cons etc. What most don't have is a lake at your back door and amazing sunset views from the peace and tranquillity of your own private balcony. There is no better feeling than taking your fresh brewed coffee onto the balcony listening to the wild life say good morning. In our home we have put everything in the house that makes our holiday special and hope that our guest enjoy them as much as we do.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just want to thank you for trusting us with your beautiful villa. It was spectacular and more than we expected. We all enjoyed splashing in the pool and spending lazy nights on the lanai. We had a wonderful time.

Cleaning staff provided us with an immaculate home. Thank you.

We look forward to contacting you in the future, should plan another trip down south.

Thank you once again and take Care!

Everything Andrea told us about the villa's position was "spot on !" It exceeded her description. The villa was a delight-Having two grandchildren always playing in the pool, my husdand needs a holiday when we get back to the uk!. The villa is well equiped,very clean and comforble with plenty of room. We will highly recommend the villa to friends back home.

Sun set were beautiful, well worth the pictures!

EXACTLY AS DESCRIBED AND PICTURED

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful home to vacation in; all was exactly as described and pictured, even down to the pool toys. The home was spotless when we checked in. Beds and furnishings were comfortable; kitchen was well-furnished with necessaries, and there were ample supplies of towels and bedding. Kitchen has a 12-cup (drip brew) coffee pot and electric tea kettle. Refrigerator has (filtered) water and ice dispensers. Extra amenities not shown in the photos include a wine chiller and mini-frig downstairs, several strollers, a high-chair, cooler, board games and books, cards, plenty of DVD's and video games, and fishing poles with tackle box. There are even plenty of rain ponchos for the whole family, so don't buy any! The lake view was lovely, especially at sunset, and the fishing pier is just outside the back door. Our destination for the children was Legoland (approx 15 minutes away); our personal favorite...no crowds or long lines. We would absolutely come back again!! 5 stars!!

Everything It Appears To Be

  • 5 of 5

As the title of this review indicates, The Lake House is everything it appears to be. The layout of the house is perfect, the furnishings and amenities more than adequate, the pool and hot tub and screened- in areas wonderful, etc., etc. The location, lakefront with few neighboring houses, is the best in this or any other development. Of course it helped that the weather during the two weeks here (Jan. 28 through Feb. 11) was the best we have experienced in our several trips to Florida during this time frame, and a welcome relief from the Pennsylvania winter. If there were any complaints, it would be the traffic noise from Hwy 27 across the lake and the lack of local shopping for those who were interested in such

(the wives, e.g., while the boys were out at the several nice golf courses in the area), but such negatives did not alter our view that this was a five star stay at a five star house. If you and your party are into the Disney and Orlando attractions (we were not), and/or golf (as noted, the boys were), you can't go wrong with The Lake House.

Impressive

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed in the Lake house and both times have had a fantastic holiday, the villa is well equipped and spacious. The outdoor area was great with our children and the downstairs lounge was good for the early morning starts with our kids whilst the rest of the family were able to remain undisturbed, it is a great house for a large family. We loved the kitchen and living room due to its open plan lay out, and the views from the dining area are great. Location wise we were close enough to all the Disney parks and Kissimmee and were able to easily access lots of things to do.

Fabulous Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

The Lake House is nothing short of the perfect vacation home. We have stayed here with our family for the past five years for our Disney vacation (and already booked for next year.) The accommodations are perfect for either a peaceful rest after a busy day or to just stay at home and relax in the pool and enjoy the lake view.The property is very clean and well maintained and the property manager is very responsive. The gated community is also well maintained and conveniently located to shopping, restaurants and our favorite, PUBLIX!! The owner is exceptionally nice and works hard to make your stay as pleasant as possible. People back home always ask us where we stay in Florida on our vacation and we always recommend the Lake House.

Amazing vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this home for nearly two weeks and were not disappointed! We have stayed at 2 other homes in the area and this was by far the nicest! Very clean, well stocked with anything you may need. Lots of room!!! Would recommend to anyone looking to rent a place in the area. If we had any questions or concerns they replied right away!

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This Villa really is incredible a real home from home experience.

You relax the moment you walk throught the front door. The perfect escape for us from the mayhem of all the nearby theme parks.

The location is just off the US27 and very close to shops and amenities.

The parks are about a half an hour drive which is just about perfect.

Thanks to you both for allowing us to stay in your home and we shall be returning very soon.
