About Pat

Pat and Mary Ellen Walsh's, current residence is Lakeland FL. We both were born and raised in Ohio. Moved to Lakeland after retirement January 2003. We purchased this home to use as a summer retreat for our Grandchildren ages 7 and 9. There are 4 of them! Yes, two sets of twins! The boys are 7 and the Girls are 9. They all love Water skiing, wake boarding and bare footing. So when they are involved in School and other sports we make our Lake home available for Vacationers from the colder climates.

Why Pat chose Central Florida

We chose this property for two reasons. First was the Chain-of-Lakes. We started vacationing in Winter Haven in the Mid '80's because of our love for water skiing. We would have loved to have the option of staying in a nice home rather than a well used motel room. Second, the central location is great. You have easy access to Theme Parks, both coast are an easy drive, 45 minutes to the Gulf and 2 hours to Daytona.And of course you can not beat the weather.

What makes this house unique

The most unique thing about our vacation home is the location. Being on the Chain-of Lakes allows you to choose between 17 Lakes to use. whether it be your favorite fishing hole, ski lake or just cruising to your favorite restaurant or to Legoland.

Great House - Beautiful View!

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect for a family! Very very clean and on a beautiful lake – we were working at the Sun & Fun airshow and so it was nice to come back after a long day to a nice home with room to not be on top of each other! The screened in patio is perfect for evening relaxing! The kitchen is well stocked with pots and pans if you wanted to cook meals! The owners are great and just a text or a phone call away and so you are never just stuck with a house if anything was to go wrong!

Beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

The pictures on line do not due the house justice. It is very pretty, clean & amazingly well-stocked. I always carry a box of kitchen supplies with me when we go to visit Florida. But this year I never even took it out of the car trunk. Great cable & internet service, too, which is important to us. Love the area because everywhere you drive, there are lakes, which is why we go to Florida. Also, the central part of Florida is so pretty with all the lakes, state parks & huge trees dripping with Spanish moss. Going back next year. I can't wait.

Great, new house with everything we needed.

  • 5 of 5

My family rented this house for over a week while visiting family. Everything was new and clean, and it had everything we needed. It's also easy to find and get around, and about 1.5 hours from either Tampa or Orlando. The view of the lake was awesome - we could see the sunset every night. There are some boats on the lake, but we never heard them unless we went outside. It's about 5 minutes from grocery stores, etc, and in a quiet neighborhood. The owner was very responsive to questions and accommodating. We would stay there again!
