It was a wonderful week, what a nice place.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Florida, what a beautiful home. The small gated community was so nice, the lake views out by the pool were very relaxing. This is a must rental if you're coming to the area. Thanks so much for sharing this wonderful home.

January Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this house. We again enjoyed the weeks so much. We spent the mornings sitting by the pool. We spent the afternoons golfing at one of the golf courses within an hour of the house. We enjoyed being able to stay home at nights and cook our meals. Everything for the house was wonderful. The owners were always quick to respond prior to our stay. This is the perfect choice for anyone wanting a safe and quiet getaway.

Very private, beautiful sunsets and nice outdoor entertainment

  • 4 of 5

This was our first VRBO experience and we were very pleased as to how well the property was maintained both inside and out. There were great outdoor areas including a screened porch and nice pool that made it great to entertain. The views, privacy, spacious yard and sunsets were beautiful...especially in a nice pool! The pool was starting to develop spots of algae, but with the hot weather it can happen quickly. Our only disappointment was when we ran out of gas for the grill in the middle of a meal and were told it was our responsibility. We felt this should have been taken care of by the owner as renters should not have to supply for the next rental customers.

Wonderful home and pool

  • 5 of 5

The home was very beautiful and functional with all private attached bathrooms to the bedrooms. Awesome pool--big and deep--great for teenagers. The privacy of the home was very nice and the lake directly behind the home was so scenic. The location is really great for people who want a more small town/rural experience at the end of a hectic day yet Orlando is an easy drive away and Tampa is fairly close too. We will definitely stay again.

great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

we stayed for 2 weeks in this home and loved every minute. The house provided everything we needed. The pool area was beautiful to sit around and relax. We can to Florida to golf and there are plenty of courses in the area. The owner and his property manager were very attentive to our needs. The gated neighborhood was an added plus.

The house is located near Orlando, some 25 miles away.

The airport is 45 minutes away if you're not familiar with the area. The Atlantic coast is an hour's drive away, and boasts waves that are perfect for surfing and the Kennedy Space Centre. The peaceful Gulf coast is also about an hour away, with its gently sloping, snow-white beaches. The house is surrounded by several natural parks, which offer hiking and canoe tours. Shopping centres, bakeries, butcher shops, a Wal-Mart and a Publix are all a 5-minute drive away. There is now an Aldi supermarket in the area and a German bakery, where you can enjoy good bread and buns, as well as very nice German pies and cakes. Other activities: Clermont Marathon, Clermont Ironman. Golf: There is also a Golf Pro shop near the house, where you can buy or rent equipment at a reasonable price. Skiing: Top water-ski destination with a trainer team made up of ex-world champions and professional boat captains.
