About Ida and Ashley Watson

I come from and international family. My parent where from Europe and I was worm in South America. After retiring my parents moved here to Eustis.

Ida and Ashley Watson purchased this house in 1977

Why Ida and Ashley Watson chose Central Florida

This was my parents retired home. This home was build to last of which my dad made sure of. After their passing I inherited this home. Coming from a family that loved to show hospitality it just felt right for me to make their home into a vacation destination.

What makes this house unique

Eustis is a small town with a big heart. It's location is just close enough to Orlando, Disney, Sea World, and many others. It's also close to many of the Springs found in Florida.

Very well kept home close to downtown Eustis and Mt Dora. Nice lake full of fish. Great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life.

Relaxing very peaceful stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the lake house for 5 weeks and it was very peaceful. Just the get away we needed . Everything we needed was there.It was definitely a home away from home . Very clean and open house.

We really enjoyed the porch in the evenings and the lake was great for kayaking. The owner was very attenitive to our needs. We enjoyed the restaurants near by and the walks and hiking . Hope to come back soon.

Eustice golf

  • 4 of 5

Down for a golf trip and found the house just what we wanted. The screened in porch was a great way to unwind after golfing. The owners were easy to work with, the house was clean and well kept up, and we enjoyed our stay. Would stay again.

A comfortable stay in nice location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for a month while visiting family in the area and found it to be a good choice. Spacious 2 BR house with nice views of trees, dripping with Spanish moss, and lake. Enjoyed the screened porch for breakfasts and cocktail hour. Very quiet and pleasant neighborhood. Highlights were fast wifi service and good cable service. 15 minutes to adorable Mt Dora, 20 minutes to Ocala Nat Forest, and about an hour to Orlando. Downtown Eustis is quite charming as well, and hosts numerous events. Olivia's cafe is great for lunch.
