Patrick has spent at least 20 years driving boats up and down the local rivers in his spare time. He would gladly take you on a personally guided tour on the river of your choice for additional charge. Winter time it is nice to go on the Saint John's River to Blue Springs to see the Manatees and have a picnic lunch. In summer time try the Saint John's River to Silver Glenn. An alternate trip any time of year is to go up the Wekiva River to the local tiki bar/swimming hole.
Patrick and Erin grew up believing people make a house a home. As one of the oldest of 7 children Patrick learned to cook a fabulous southern Sunday brunch very early in life. Erin grew up going to Grandma's every year where 30-40 people stayed for the holidays with only 1 bathroom! We do not intend those extreme conditions but we both love people and wish to meet new people and share our home with others.
Other than the main Central Florida attractions - don't forget we are also convenient to the Sanford Orlando International Airport, Kennedy Space Center, Daytona Speedway and beach, New Smyrna Beach, cross-county bike/walking trails, Orlando City soccer fields, Central Florida Zoo, Lake Sylvan Park and recreation center, Blue Springs National Park, Wekiva River, St. John's River, Mount Dora, Sanford riverwalk, Sanford splash pad and large outdoor playground, Heathrow bars and restaurants, shoppes and movie theater, Ocala National Forest....the list is endless.
We are approx. 15 minutes to Sanford Orlando International Airport, 25 minutes from Disney attractions, 40 minutes to the Orlando International Airport, 30 minutes to downtown Orlando (Orlando Science Center, Church and Wall Streets), 45 minutes to premiere outlet shopping. There is easy access to Interstate 4 and toll roads 429 and 417.

Our neighborhood is within walking distance to the Orlando City Soccer professional soccer fields, a well-kept county park, county bike trails and the Wekiva River.
Patrick and I enjoy many hobbies and activities such as water skiing, bike riding, hosting parties, home brewing beer, and traveling. We also have a 6 year old son who keeps us laughing daily! We have opened our home as a 'host' on this website in hopes that we can expose ourselves and our son to new friends, cultures and experiences through the process. So far we have been truly blessed by the guests coming into our home.
We enjoy helping visitors plan their activites by giving 'Tips from the locals'. If you have a question - we are very open and honest, just ask! We have a welcoming, relaxing and quiet home.
Kreusch Family purchased this house in 2011
We've had such a great response from our guests on another website - we want to start working with VRBO also!
Our family needed a place to stay during our last soccer tournament in Sanford, FL. We found the Kreusch Family's rental on HomeAway and reached out to them. Erin was quick to respond and very responsive to our questions as we planned our trip. The three bedroom setup in the house allowed us privacy and a private bath. Best of all, the house was only a minute from the soccer fields! If you participate in these tournaments, or want to visit in the Orlando area, we highly recommend this rental. Not only were the rooms great, Erin and her family were awesome. Very friendly and great hosts!
This home is in a great location. It was less tham 25 miles from the Citrus Bowl and about 30 miles from Orlando's Disney attractions. We had very easy access to the highway and traffic was a breeze. This home is great for guests who are mobile. The motorized wheelchair was a challenge but the owners were very kind and accommodating. They did everything they could to ensure our comfort. We would surely visit again and swim in the outdoor pool.
My family with two young kids stayed for 6 weeks and it was home away from home.Erin and Patrick were amazing host and I always enjoy their conversations,they have a natural way of making you feel like part of their family.My 2 girls enjoyed playing with their son Hayden and their dog jake .Erin and Patrick has a wonderful family and home.I would definitely stay here again.Thanks guys we look forward to seeing you all again.
There's no place like home, but this place is close in warmth, comfort and happiness.
Our family (with four kids) stayed here for a week in July. The accommodations were perfect for us, and there was plenty of space for everyone to sleep, which can be difficult with four kids. The master bathroom was especially nice. The owner was very responsive to the one minor issue we had during our stay. We would definitely stay here again. Thank you.
I started my search looking for an economical location to stay and be able to relax for a couple days while we were in the Orlando area to celebrate my daughter's graduation. Erin, Patrick, Hayden & Jake were absolutely wonderful. Couldn't have asked for a better location. Would recommend to anyone. Wish we could have stayed longer.
