My husband, Hank is from Portugal, and I am from the North Carolina, we have been renting vacation homes over 30 years. We enjoy meeting all of our guest and they always return.

PHOEBE MATOS purchased this house in 1998

Why PHOEBE MATOS chose Orlando

My husband and I have traveled the world, we are retired airline staff. We have always loved coming to Florida, in 1983 we purchased a first vacation home and we moved to Florida. We do not miss the cold weather or the snow.

What makes this house unique

Welcome! 'Your Home Away From Home' You only need to bring your toothbrush, we provide everything else. A true home away from home, Florida Vacation Home offers you a cozy retreat away from the bustle but located at the hub of Central Florida activities.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Phoebe and Hank !

How rude of me !! It is nearly a week since we left your super home, after having thoroughly enjoyed two weeks exploring Florida....or at least what we could !

What a delightful area, and how pleased we were each day to take refuge in our home of 2 weeks. It was always such a pleasure returing to "1825 Bridgeview Circle". We all.....Sophie included!, thank you for "letting us in!" Thank you............thank you !

I hope we were able to leave your home to your liking.....we tried our best ! :-)

I will recommend the residence to anyone who asks me. Top class and just memorable. We are hoping to return, absolute latest Autumn 2015, so I will stay in contact for that time, but I am personally hoping to make it back sooner. We will see........i can hope ! :-)

I hope this mail finds you both well. Not too busy sorting out the Portuguese red tape. We wish you both health and happiness and hope to see you again in the not too distant future.

Our very best regards

A very nice place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the ample space and amenities. It was such a nice neighbourhood - we were completely comfortable. Having our own screened-in pool was such a luxury. There are lots of channels on the TV to relax before bed. We made great use of the kitchen by shopping at Publix which was only a few minutes away. The kitchen is well equipped you won't want for anything. Thanks Phoebe and family for such quick responses to our inquiries.

We loved to stay there as it is a practical and confortable home, very well located.

  • 5 of 5

We arrived two days before Christmas and it was a lovely surprise to find a Christmas tree and ornaments; even the table was set accordingly. Our kids were thrilled about it and completly positive that Santa would certainly arrive and leave them presents under the tree!

The house is very confortable and had everything we needed. Overall instructions were very clear. Our only doubt was how to handle organic waste, as we live in Mexico City (we always separate organic from inorganic garbage) and are not familiar with practices in Florida.

We certainly enjoyed our stay in your house.
