Overview

About the property

Beautifully decorated 4bedrm 3 1/2 bath home on acerage, plenty of room to entertain and not bother anyone. The house sleeps up to 10 comfortably. All the rooms come with flat screens, Netflix, and wi-fi. The master has wood floors, large flat screen, and a king size spring free very comfortable bed.

It has a large flat screen tv in a beautiful wall unit, gas fireplace, 3 sets of french doors leading out to the porch, with beautiful silk dark drapes for great darkening for movies. Very comfortable furniture. The kitchen has a large 48' fridge, every appliance that you need to prepare any dish that you wish. It has a nook in the bay window over looking the property.

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.

THANK YOU FOR MAKING OUR FLORIDA VACATION SO MEMORABLE!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed in this lovely home for two weeks while we toured universities, visited family, and my son and my niece’s daughter got baptized on Daytona Beach. I could not rave on it more ... it was outstanding in every way. The location was perfect -- close to Orlando airport where we flew in, Disney, Universal studios, Nascar and the beaches. The home was well-stocked and has everything you need to have an awesome stay. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The accommodations were excellent!! Maximum privacy. Very peaceful. Beds were super comfy. The home was very spacious, exceptionally clean and BEAUTIFULLY designed. The owner was amazingly thoughtful. Dana was very responsive to inquiries and provided enough info for us to feel secure in our stay. It was above and beyond what we would expect from a vacation rental. A dream house ... I wanted to cry having to leave it! We will definitely be back and would highly recommend this home to anyone who is visiting!!

Thank you for choosing my home. You will love this house. Very quiet. Just a few minutes from historical downtown Sanford. About 30 minutes from downtown Mt. Dora another great historical city, great restaurants and shopping. Beaches just minutes away. The location is great. You will want to come back year after year.
