About Joseph Zirbes

We have lived in the Plantation at Leesburg since 1998 after having moved from coast to coast. We looked long and hard before settling on this location and have not been disappointed.

Joseph Zirbes purchased this house in 2011

Why Joseph Zirbes chose Central Florida

The location is just superb for visiting all that Florida has to offer and still being able to be 'home' again before night-fall. The major turnpikes and freeways are so very close and it's only a short drive to Orlando International airport.

What makes this house unique

We love the open floor plan of this home with it's huge walk-in closet and low care yard.

Well Maintained home in quiet neighborhood surrounded by awesome activities

  • 5 of 5

This home, away from home, makes you want to stay here forever! The home is impeccably clean and all the amenities that you would expect are available from silverware to linens, pots and pans, and towels etc.

Lots of storage for your own clothes!

The owner is very personable and always available to help you out if needed.

Perfect Rental

  • 5 of 5

This house was the perfect rental for my three month stay this past January through March. Everything in the house was clean and organized when I arrived. The owners came to introduce themselves and answer any questions I had.

The kitchen had everything necessary for anyone who likes to cook. The lanai was a great place to read or eat meals since it was warmed by the sun.

The Plantation publishes a monthly calendar which lists every activity and special event with the day, time, and location. I headed to the heated swimming pools whenever the air temperature allowed. Outside the Plantation, but close by are banks, gas stations, a drug store, a hardware store, and two major grocery stores.

What a wonderful "Home away from Home!" DEFINITELY 5 STAR+. The house is beautiful, clean as a pin and in tip top shape. Everything we could possibly need (and more) was provided. The landlord lives nearby and was great, quick to respond to any questions and needs. A book with extensive information about the home, area, doctors, pharmacies, activities, phone numbers, etc. was included to answer many of our questions. The Plantation is a great neighborhood; gated, well maintained, and friendly. Hope to spend more time in this special home next fall.

This is such a great rental house. Since our retirement in 2009, we have been renting housing in several locations in Florida. This house is 5 stars plus! It was in immaculate condition, had everything you needed. Everything in the house is in excellent condition unlike some rental properties we have stayed in previously. The owner lives nearby so if we had a problem he was readily available. We loved the Plantation so much we purchased a house there! We would recommend this house to be put on top of your list when looking for a rental in the Plantation. Also house is very convenient to Orlando and all the activities.

Owner's Response: Thank you Larry and Rita! It was a pleasure having you as our guest and that you were able to make use of the home while searching for your own home in The Plantation. We have now had several couples that have used the home as a base for just that purpose, while also being able to enjoy the area. I'm happy to see you made it back without problems. Maybe we'll meet again in December. Take care!

Awesome Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

This home was in immaculate condition . The kitchen pots, pans and dishes were very nice quality and plenty even if it was a party of four. It has the nicest master bath with a beautiful huge shower and very nice towels .We enjoyed sitting out on the large lanai and found it to be quiet and relaxing. I would definitely rent again from this owner as his property is well cared for and we were so impressed that when we mentioned a concern about the chairs on the lanai the owner came and brought four new chairs the same day. That was great service. The neighbors are friendly and quiet.

What a great place to spend a vacation. Everything was just perfect inside and outside. Plenty of towels, dishes and cook ware. Free phone service anywhere in the states and wifi. What more could we want. close to everywhere and everything. The owner could not have been nicer. Always, checked to see if we needed anything. Spent 3 1/2 months here and there was always something to do and lots of great places to eat.
