About Paul and Tyva Russell

Paul was born in Jamestown, ND: I was born in Jamestown, KY. We met, on a train, while Paul was in service. We were married, had our family and lived in Minnesota. Paul worked for IBM and I worked in nursing administration. After we retired we moved to Florida and love it.

Why Paul and Tyva Russell chose Eustis

The couple that owned this property wanted us to buy the property when they deceased. They knew we would take good care of it. They thought one of our children might like to live in the house at some time because we live close by.

What makes this house unique

We love the area and we live close by. Being on the lake offers opportunities for boating, fishing, watching wildlife, Nature at it's best. We are close to both coasts, Disney, Mount Dora and The Villages. Great community.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Miss Nscheeler rented for 3 months and would have rented for a longer amount of time except her job took her out of state. She stated she was very comfortable and felt very much at home. She loved the quietness of the house and the way it was furnished.

Relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful location looking out over the lagoon. We spent most of our time in the Florida room when we weren't actually on the water. If you want to get away from it all yet still be close to everything this is the place. Paul and Tyva went out of their way to make us feel at home.

Wonderful, relaxing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We were greeted with a lovely luncheon when we arrived at the house, the hosts went out of the way to make it a welcoming arrival. The house was clean and inviting. Most of our time was spent in the sunroom or back yard. We would definitely recommend this home for a vacation getaway.
