I am a professional ballet dancer/educator. I grew up in Winter Park, in Central Florida, and live now in Europe, directing my own ballet school. For our German guests - Deutsch ist meine zweite Sprache! My parents built this home in 1974 and it was, (second to me!), their pride and joy. When my mother passed away last year, I decided to keep the house for my own vacations and invite you to share the comforts of her home when I am in Europe. That is why this property offers a very homey, personal touch, as well as all the necessary modern appliances. Less than 45 min. away from the beach (New Smyrna), from downtown Orlando, less than 1 hr from the Disney attractions. Very nearby: Blue Springs Gardens, Park Avenue in Winter Park, Stetson University, Daytona Beach (Bike Week), historical districts of Deland and Sanford (don't forget the Sanford zoo!).

In this quiet residential street, which has only four houses on it, you will find peace and quiet, alot of space, and the neighbors are extraordinarily friendly and helpful should you need anything. This was my mother's home for 37 years and the number one vacation place for my own family. I would really love to share it with you.
Very relaxing, very welcoming atmosphere, the minute one walks in the house. After sightseeing during the day, come home, sit outside on one of the porches and listen to the wind chimes and the crickets. Pick some fruit and make yourselves some freshly squeezed orange juice. Get away from it all, and still be close to all that our beautiful Central Florida has to offer.
The property was very well maintained, clean, very nice area and friendly neighbors. It was very easy in reserving the property. I would highly recommend this vacation home.
My family and I stayed in this property for 2 weeks over the Thanksgiving holiday. It was such a pleasure to be able to spend time in such a clean, well-appointed, and comfortable space. The home is large, and while it is fully furnished and has a warm, cozy feel, it always felt spacious and uncluttered. We had everything we needed (and more) and were truly able to enjoy our trip and feel at home. My father and 3yr old son and I were there full time, with my brothers popping in at points. We even had some local family come by for dinner at our place one night. It was ideal for our "oldies" in walkers, as there was plenty of space for them to maneuver around. Also lots of space for my son to dance, lol. This place felt like home right away, and now that I'm back home in Australia, I have moments wishing I could return, lol. If I get the opportunity to stay there again, I'd take it in a heartbeat. As a matter of fact, I've recommended the property to some family, and they've already booked for next Christmas!
A tip for those driving into town... I recommend you try to make it to the house during the day as the neighborhood itself isn't lit very much. There are streetlights at key points, but we found it difficult that first night, trying to find the place in the dark. Enjoy!
Lovely house.It was ideal for us to use as a base while travelling florida.Lovely people to deal with.
We are just completing a month-long stay in this lovely house and could not have been more comfortable. The property is clean, well-maintained, and the owner accessible via email. Everything we need is at hand; the area is peaceful, yet not far from the "necessaries:" grocery stores, church, restaurants all a very short drive. There were many mornings we enjoyed fresh-squeezed orange juice (picked the fruit ourselves, right in the gorgeous back yard), which was a real treat for those of us who have lived our lives "up north." Living here was a truly wonderful experience!
We really enjoyed staying in this house during our time here. Everything is well maintained and clean, and everything you need is handy. What a blessing this place was! It's close to the highway and shopping (about 30 minutes to downtown Orlando and about 25 minutes to Daytona), so conveniently located. The owner was wonderful and reachable via e-mail. Beautiful yard for playing in or lounging in. Plenty of sleeping room, too, and space to spread out.
Located between New Smyrna Beach and Orlando, Central Florida Tourist Attractions. Easy access to I-4, I-95. Beautiful Blue Springs Gardens with manatee watching, next to Deland, the home of Stetson University, with theaters, concerts, museums, historical district. This property is on a quiet residential street, but local shops and services are less than 10 minutes away. Golf course is less than 5 minutes away!
