There is no restaurant on-site, Nalcrest (1 mile away) has a daily buffet. The community is best described as laid-back old warm sunny Florida, part of the citrus belt, south of Orlando. It's for low key budget minded people who wish to enjoy nature, the warmth, the heated pool, and the friendly people in the community. It has nice amenities. It is not a 5 star resort so you won't find the Kardashians wintering here. However, there are aspects of this community that may be better than a 5 star resort: including low price, boat slips, docks, access to the 50 acre private recreational island, access to 7500 acre ski/fishing lake, and all of the things nearby that people of Central Florida do: Flea Markets, Auto Auctions, Barbeque festivals, botanical gardens, nature walks, water sports, golfing, tennis, and just having a laid back good time together in Sunny South Central Florida, typically 8-10 degrees warmer than Orlando in the winter


Excellent! 4.7/5 -

Winter Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I normally stay on the Gulf coast but decided to try Central Florida. Lakeshore Villas was a pleasant surprise. The weather was warmer without the continuous ocean breeze. The villa was nicely furnished, clean and in a safe area. We enjoyed the lanai and the beautiful view, as well as the outdoor grill. My husband and I both have knee issues and the owner, Rick, kindly provided recliners for us. He also added some tv channels that were my favorite. He is a super nice guy who wants you to enjoy your stay, and promptly answered all texts and calls. He told us a lot about the area and things to do. The pool, shuffleboard, tennis courts and walking areas were excellent. We felt safe at all times. Nice gym and laundromat on site, as well as a car washing station at the Towne Center. There is a post office there where you can rent a PO Box. They offer stamps and package mailing. You are about 40 minutes from Disney attractions. We ventured to the Prime Outlet mall in Orlando and found lots of bargains. Haines City offered shopping and a citrus grove. We went to Winter Haven where my husband found a skeet range. Lots of flea markets and thrift shops. There were several golf courses available but we don't play golf so I can't comment on them. Four of our favorite restaurants were Crazy Fish, Sizzling Grill, Woodys BBQ and JayBees diner. All were reasonably priced and served delicious food. Lots of retirees in the area and you can be as sociable as you want. Grocery shopping was at Walmart or Publix. Give 1915 Circle Dr a try if you want a nice vacation at a reasonable price with excellent facilities.

Good property. Clean and good quiet area!

  • 4 of 5

Nice and quiet location. Came for a golf tournament and enjoyed our stay at the nice little community of lakeshore. The place was a little outdated, but provided a very comfortable stay with no problems!

Very nice experience

  • 4 of 5

Condo had everything that was advertised. Very quiet, attractive, clean, and safe. We took evening walks around complex, enjoying the wildlife and quiet surroundings. The pool and whirlpool were outstanding, the walk to the pool is through a tree lined walk that is very attractive . The screened room at condo was ideal for morning coffee and evening conversations. The provided grill was a nice added feature. Very comfortable furniture and bed.

Rick the owner is very attentive, calling to check that all was ok. He was very easy to contact with the questions that I had. I needed to extend my stay, and he was very accommodating. I would certainly stay there again.

wonderful winter stay

  • 5 of 5

This is a hidden gem for winter travel for those of us weary of cold and snow. We enjoyed the villa, located centrally in this gem of a community. Relaxing was the theme of our time, with time at the pool, use of the game room, bingo, and much more as we wanted. Friendly community, outgoing individuals but able to sit back and relax as wanting. One of the few communities that is really dog friendly for those who travel with their smaller furry friends. We look so forward to returning here in the future.

Wonderful place for the perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We needed a break from the New England cold and couldn't have asked for a better location to enjoy a week in Florida. We've never been to Lake Wales before but it was the perfect location to hit the east coast and the west coast during our Florida vacation. Rick's place was perfect - clean and well equipped and with a terrific waterfront view to enjoy. The place is fabulous - peaceful and tranquil but with amenities that kept us active - swimming, tennis and we even took a relaxing boat ride with some terrific neighbors that we met. In fact, the whole community seemed friendly and hospitable.

Mary and I would definitely recommend this wonderful rental to anyone looking for a clean, affordable rental in a great location.
