A little story about Robert Downey Jr.

His trip through Sanford,

That's how we roll!

SANFORD, Florida – During a radio interview this morning, Hollywood actor Robert Downey Jr took a moment to praise Sanford, Florida residents who had helped him with a mechanical issue with his rental car as he passed through the city recently:

“We were just leaving the city limits of Sanford, Florida when the damn car overheated or something so I pulled it over to the side of the road and within just a minute or two there were a couple of cars that pulled over to help me out. I told them that I was on the phone with the rental car company but one of them had a brother who owned a tow truck and a few minutes later it was there and he towed it to a place nearby to get fixed.

So then the one guy finds out that I’m not from there and offers to take me in to get lunch while my car is getting fixed and I’m thinking, ‘Sure, what the hell.’ So we drove to probably the finest dining spot in Sanford – some place called Christo’s – and got a burger. Great freakin’ burger too. These guys had no idea who I was either which made my day, honestly. I’m telling you, these people in Sanford are the real deal. I’m going to move there after I retire,” Downey Jr said with a laugh.

Downey Jr added later, “You have to understand, this is something that would’ve never happened in L.A.! So yeah, that’s my story about Sanford, Florida. It’s nice to know there are still places like this in America.”

About Dana Keen

I have lived in the house for over 25 years raised my 2 children here, and have loved every minute of it. You will too. I grew up in the Orlando area most of my life. I love the area, I guess that's why I am still here. I am not ready to let go of the house just yet. So I thought I would let other people enjoy it as much as I have. I am close by if you should need any thing a phone call away. I work in the area about 20 minutes away.

Dana Keen purchased this house in 1995

Why Dana Keen chose Central Florida

It has such a peaceful feel here. Everyone that comes here says the same thing. I love the feel of this house. I do too! The wrap around porch, and the quiet surroundings it is just delightful. Like I said it seems like you are far away, but close to every thing. You can go either direction and be at the beach or antiqe shopping, restaurants, malls, cinema's, golf, what ever your heart desires. Your going to love it.

What makes this house unique

One of the things I love about this house is the porch. The swing on the front over looks the whole property with another swing hanging from tall trees where my children used to swing and all their cousins, and friends. We also have an historical well that the trains used to use to fill their steam engines many years ago. It is laid out very nice for entertaining. The downstairs is the entertainment area, and the bedrooms are all upstairs, and a private room on the other side of the garage, very private. I hope you enjoy your stay, and tell your friends about it.

Lots of privacy

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Sanford at this well-decorated property. Very peaceful and comfortable beds. Spacious and quite space. We booked to stay while attending a wedding at nearby Lake Mary. Felt like home. We would stay there again if visiting the area.

Comfortable Economic Clean Convenient

  • 5 of 5

This home was wonderfully relaxing after a day of work at a conference for our group of female professionals. We each had ample, well designed and very clean space to ourselves, as well as comfortable spots to come together inside and outside the home to decompress and discuss. This was the perfect solution for us--economical, clean, comfortable and convenient to our downtown Orlando (20-30 minute morning drive) meeting.

A wonderful place to lay your head

Several couples travel from South Carolina to Florida for a marriage conference. We enjoyed the beautiful home and it's comfort. We could not have asked for better accommodations. Thank you so much for offering up your home for the weekend to a bunch of strangers. God Bless!!

Beautiful home and so spacious.

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in this roomy home. It was perfect for our family to attend the wedding. We cooked in the kitchen equipped for what we wanted to do and sat on the back porch in the wicker furniture for late afternoon tea and beverage. The town of Sanford and the airport are convenient to the home also.

A beautiful and comfortable as well. I highly recommend the Bedford home.
