Daryl recently decided to open his beautiful lake property to the many others that know and love Kingsley Lake. The property was purchased in 2008 and the house was completed in 2010.
DARYL purchased this house in 2009
Daryl grew up going to Strickland's landing long before Kingsley lake became the private lake it is today. We love the fresh clear spring fed waters and the natural beauty of the most beautiful lake in all of Florida.
No Gators Great Fishing, Military Base Surrounding, Spring Fed, Private, Great Wedding Venue, Gorgeous Setting.
AN HALF AN HOUR DRIVE FROM GAINESVILLE HOME OF THE FL GATORS AND 45 MINUTES FROM THE JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS STADIUM
This was our 4th year renting from Daryl. The house is perfect for a family gathering. Kingsley Lake is the best lake in Florida - clean, beautiful and lots of fish! We were very comfortable and had a wonderful time. Already booked for next year.
Thank you very much!!!! Had a great time & beautiful place on the lake :) Enjoyed it so much :)
My family rented this house for 8 nights. The house was beautiful and clean. The kitchen was very nice and well equipped. We enjoyed sitting on the dock and watching all of the boats and jet skis. We also enjoyed sitting on the back porch and drinking our morning coffee. We really loved the floor plan of the house and hope to rent it again in the near future.
Our second stay at this beautiful lake house was great all the way around. Perfect place to relax and enjoy family and friends. Very comfortable and clean. Thanks Tamara and Darryl!
We arrived to find a lovely, well built, nicely furnished home that was in need of some cleaning. Not ones to complain, we simply ignored the dirty corners and layer of dust and proceeded to unpack. Being a bunch of foodie moms, we took plenty of food. The kitchen was beautiful, well stocked w/ equipment, & spacious. We were surprised that the owners left food in both cabinets & the fridge. We used our coolers for the extra food & didn’t lodge a complaint. A walk out to the lake on the dock found me face to face with spider webs everywhere. I simply grabbed a broom and swept them away without complaint. Spiders happen. We were thirsty for some ice water, but found the ice maker did not work & the water sulfur smelling. We didn’t lodge a complaint, but drove to Dollar General for ice & water. If we had known about the ice maker & water, we could have saved a trip, but it wasn't a big deal. Later, the early to bed moms took the two front bedrooms & disappeared while us night owls chatted away in the living room. At midnight, getting tired, we went into the back bedrooms and turned down the covers & found dirty linens. The master's were dusty with hair and pet hair, the other’s had small blood spots on the quilt and a large blood stain on one pillow. We stripped the beds and began washing the linens after cleaning 1/4" black gunk from around the inside of the washer. We searched for clean bedding and found plenty of linens, but they were all dirty & disorganized. We did not complain to the owner, but washed 10 loads of linens in 2 days upon arrival. We ladies had a great time in spite of these cleaning issues. The ladies left, the family came, & again, it was nice. The only thing I intended to mention to the owner was the bedding.
We left 1 day early. I stripped beds, cleaned kitchen, began laundry, took out trash, straightened up and more. I sent the owner an email letting her know we were leaving early & recommended she speak with her cleaning company re. the bedding. All was fine until a full week after we checked out, I got an email that stated, “I mailed your check back....my cleaning crew came today and said every set of extra sheets (8) were dirty and house was dirty as well. It's your prerogative but next time please do not criticize us for unnecessary things . it took her 5 hours to clean .” Read the rest here - https://app.box.com/kingsleymay2015.
