About Margaret

I am an Interior designer/ architect and I love to travel. I have lived in many great cities (NYC, Aspen, Miami, and LA) and I always come back here. I use VRBO wherever I go. It's the greatest way to really get to know how the locals live, find the best restaurants, and enjoy walking communities.

Margaret purchased this bungalow in 2004

Why Margaret chose Northeast

Orlando is a great city. I grew up here. Whenever I leave Orlando, I am reminded of the great weather, interesting people, and ease of living here. You can walk/bike/ uber everywhere and there is always something interesting going on.

What makes this bungalow unique

Great local neighborhood vibe! Walk to dining, shopping, boutiques, Sunday farmer's market, and events around Lake Eola. With close proximity (5-minute Uber or rickshaw/ 10-minute walk) to Downtown Orlando, Performing Arts Center, Amway Arena, and movie theaters. 30-45 minutes to the Beach, Disney Area & Theme Parks & Convention Center.

Adorable and elegant historic home

  • 5 of 5

This property was the perfect place to stay the week that my daughter was married at Cerviche! The bridal party got ready at the house, and the photographer was delighted with the beautifully decorated and restored home. It was comfortable as well as elegant - all the amenities were available. The property owner was responsive when I had to text her with a few small questions. Highly recommended! The neighborhood was beautiful and fun!!

Beautiful home, charming neighborhood, perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I traveled to Orlando with another couple for a sporting event and stayed at this property for the weekend. The home was adorable - clean, well decorated, spacious and anything you would think to need for a weekend stay. The home is in an adorable and safe neighborhood, and is within 5-10 minute walking distance of restaurants (nice and casual restaurants, sports bars, breakfast spots - Starbucks and other cafes). Also, if you're a runner, you are a few blocks away from the lake that has a great sidewalk looping around for a great scenic run. We were a very short cab drive downtown (where the Orlando City Stadium and Amway Center are), and about 15-20 minute drive to a large mall. The location was perfect for us.

Margaret was very quick to respond to our inquiries leading up to our trip, and check in/out was super easy. She was also very helpful when we asked for some recommendations for dinner/brunch during our trip, and the places she pointed us do did not disappoint. I would absolutely recommend this place for any family or friends, and would love to stay here again in the future.

Charming Home in Convenient Location

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed staying here. I was in town for 5 days, and I was sad when it was time to leave. The owner was very accommodating, and you're walking distance from nice restaurants and a beautiful lake. I will always request this space first whenever I'm in Orlando, Florida.

Beautiful Home in the Best Area of Orlando!

  • 5 of 5

This is an absolutely stunning home in the heart of Orlando's best neighborhood, Thornton Park! The bungalow has a ton of old character with beautiful updates throughout. Margaret's interior design really brings out all of this homes charm. 2 bedrooms with comfortable beds/linens, 1 bathroom, nice size fully equipped kitchen, large dining and living room. The home is right off the main street through Thornton Park but it's still very quiet. Just a few blocks away are some really great restaurants and bars. Lake Eola is just a few blocks further and has a beautiful park & multi use trail. Walk a little further (or Uber) to the heart of downtown Orlando! I grew up in Orlando is this is by far my favorite location. Don't pass up a chance to stay in this beautiful Thornton Park Bungalow!
