Clermont Area House Rental Photos and Description

Our 5 Bedrooms, 4 Bath home is perfect for your family getaway.

A true home like experience in a quiet community close to Disney attractions.

With over 2300 square feet of living area this five bedroom with two king and one queen masters and four bathrooms is fully furnished and equipped to meet the needs of couples, families and groups.

Our all inclusive rate includes Pool and Spa heat, WIFI, Long distance calling, and the use of our BarBQ.

We continue to make changes, and this winter (2016) we added a new Convection oven, Washer and Dryer, DIning room and Kichen table sets. Outdoors, we installed a pool hand rail to ease the entry and exit of the pool, painted the pool deck and bought a new BarBQ.

The ground floor has a king master bedroom with en-suite washroom and walk-in closet, a second bedroom with twin beds and its own bathroom, with a shower suitable for someone with mobility problems (fitted handrails and an integral seat). You will love the convenient access to the pool area from the Master bathroom via a separate door.

To complete the first floor there is a dining room with a new dining table and server that will easily seat eight, a very well equipped kitchen area also with a new counter height table and four chairs. Next to it is the lving room with patio doors to the pool lanai.

A new washer and dryer are located in the hallway closet leading to the garage.

The lving room has a new sectional sofa and arm chair and its own 55' Smart TV with free NETFLIX and access to Web applications such as SKYPE and Pandora, a Blue Ray DVD, and I-pod docking station. There is a selection of DVDs, CD's, books, and games suitable for all ages. There are over 100 channels available including BBC America and ESPN and Fox Sports for European football. High speed wireless internet access is available for your use.

You will find cordless telephones in most of the rooms, with free North American long distance including US, Canada, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. Free long distance calls to Europe are also provided on request.

The garage has been converted to a games room with foosball and air hockey tables. There is also an extra refridgerator in the garage providing increased food storage space.

Upstairs there is a second king master bedroom with en-suite and walk-in closet, a twin bed room and another bedroom with Queen bed. The twin and Queen bedrooms share a Jack and Jill washroom. All the bedrooms have their own LED TVs.

Outside you will find an enclosed 30 foot by 15 foot heated swimming pool with a built in spa that is heated separately. It is surrounded by one of the more spacious pool decks in Silver Creek for play or relaxation after a day at the parks. The south-west exposure ensures that you can enjoy the afternoon sun and top up that tan on one of our four sun-loungers. Florida Glass (opaque screening) provides for extra privacy. A well furnished lanai provides shade and a patio table for casual dining on the beautiful Florida evenings. We have just added a wall mounted 40' LCD TV to the lanai, allowing our guests to watch their favorite programs while enjoying the weather outside.

Families with young children need not worry about pool safety since there is a secure pool fence to prevent accidents. If they have any energy to burn after a visit to the parks, there is a new community Playground within walking distance for them to play on.

The house has air conditioning and central heating, and all rooms have ceiling fans. Our local management firm is available to assist you with any issues that you might have.

About Denis Lajoie

Julie and Denis Lajoie, Quebec, Canada

After several years of renting vacation properties in Florida, my wife and I decided to purchase a home of our own and to make it available for others to enjoy when we are not there. The home has been well maintained by the previous owners who purchased it new in 2005, and it is our intention to continue in their tradition. We have added some personal touches and upgraded many items to make ours, and our guests stay, more enjoyable.

Denis Lajoie purchased this house in 2011

Why Denis Lajoie chose Clermont Area

We have been visiting Orlando for many years begining with our children and now with our adult children and grandchildren. We always enjoy our trips to Disney, EPCOT, Universal and the other Orlando attractions. We also take the time to enjoy the many golf courses that are in close proximity along with the excellent restaurants and bars.

Silver Creek is the ideal community offering access to the parks that are only minutes away, while offering a peaceful and enjoyable setting for enjoying the Florida sun. The beaches on either coast are only an hour and a half away.

What makes this house unique

Silver Creek is an idyllic community that is close to everything yet quiet and safe. You can leave the noise and the traffic behind and relax in the villa or go for long walks along the manicured streets. We continue to be amazed at the starlit nights with so little light pollution even though we are so close to everything.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you! The rooms were very nice! Your decorationsa are interesting but cool. I love the geckos on the walls and the real ones outside. Very nice location, close to everything.

Not Luxury, But Certainly Nice!

  • 3 of 5

We have stayed at several vacation houses in this area over the past few years and while it is a nice house the title is a little misleading. We had a couple of minor issues, but it was an enjoyable stay overall.

First the issues:

We arrived at the house late on our first night after a long day of driving to be greeted by a warm stagnant house. The thermostat showed it was 83 degrees and every ceiling fan in the house was turned off. The thermostat has a locked plastic guard around it so it could not be adjusted, but the house did cool down within a couple of hours of turning all the fans on.

**Recommendation - I know you are trying to save on the electricity, but turning the ceiling fans on should not be that pricey...

By the time we got settled it was a little after 10PM and we decided to take a swim while the house cooled off, but the pool was on a timer and could not be turned on. The second night after spending all day at Disney and watching the fireworks (they start at 9PM) we made it back to the house around 10:20PM to face the same problem. This time we contacted the owner and he agreed to extend the pool hours a little.

**Recommendation - Let folks know what you have the pool timer set for, and allow them to adjust if they would like.

The positives:

The house is in a quiet neighborhood that is close to shopping and a variety of restaurants, and only about 25 minutes from the Disney parks.

It is well furnished with LED TVs throughout, offers plenty of space and was clean and stocked with plenty of towels and linens.

Denis was very responsive and accommodating!

Owner's Response: It was unfortunate that you had issues with our home during your stay and while we dealt with them during your stay, it is important to respond to your concerns. To begin with, your side comment on our being misleading in regards to our home being a luxury villa, is obviously a personal opinion that is not shared with the majority of our guests who have thoroughly enjoyed our home and its facilities over the past 3 years. My wife and I have also rented homes in Florida for many years before deciding to buy this home when we retired, so we know what is available on the market. We spend the winters in our home and are continually upgrading the furnishings and decor. Your comment in this regards and rating are unfair. However, since our goal is to resolve issues and to continue to improve our guest experience, we are providing a response to the two issues you did raise. Our home is a two story and as such it does get hot upstairs even with the air conditioning on. We installed a new thermostat last winter that provides us with remote access to monitor internal and external temperature readings for the home. We can also remotely set the temperature settings on the thermostat to ensure that the home is always at 78f. While we cannot control the ceiling fans, what we will do in the future is turn on the furnace fan to circulate the air in the house and cool off the top floor. In regards to the pool. As a courtesy to our neighbors and their guest’s, pools in our community shut off at 8:00pm. Manual intervention is currently required to set it to run longer and since few guests ask for it, we change the timer on request. We will update the arrival instructions to suggest that guests wishing that the pool be left on later, request it before they arrive. Since we do not charge for Pool or SPA heat, we believe this is reasonable. Also, we are planning to install a new Pool and SPA controller this winter that will allow us to change the time remotely, much in the same way as we do for the air conditioning. This will ensure that we will be able to quickly respond to any requests. In both cases, we lock access to control panels to prevent tampering and damage to our systems which has happened in the past. While we are disappointed with your comments and rating, we thank you for taking time to provide a review. Jule and Denis Lajoie

Great Home

  • 5 of 5

Great price for a great home. This year was the first time we stayed off-site. We were 15-20 mins away from the parks, and it was quite an easy drive. We preferred this to staying on-site and having to wait for the busses and then having to walk all the way back to your room. The home was very clean and spacious. We were a party of 7, and all of us had similar accommodations to home which was nice. The grill was great - nice to take an afternoon break in the pool/hot tub and make lunch. The only let down (and this was on my own error) was the jacuzzi tubs in the masters are NOT whirlpool/spa/jetted tubs. They are in fact Jacuzzi brand soaking tubs. Also, this home is very conveniently located to an urgent care center and Walmart Pharmacy (same shopping complex). Our son ended up having a severe asthma attack on vacation, but it was a life saver being so close to a dr and pharmacy that takes our insurance and had great and quick service. All in all, the house was perfect for our needs - privacy, quiet, pool/hot tub, close enough to the parks, great delivery restaurants, close to shopping.

Excellent rental!!

  • 5 of 5

We took a family vacation with 6 adults and 2 kids. This house was perfect!! It was spacious and the pool was great for the kids! The only issue we had was the hot tub not getting hot. We would definitely recommend this house to anyone and would stay here again if we went back!

Owner's Response: We are pleased that you enjoyed your time in our home. The hot tub requires some time to warm up since it is built in to the pool. It will take at least 30 minutes to heat up so it is best to start it and let it run for a while before using.
