One Week Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The physical location (about 20-25 minutes from Universal) was not our first choice, but in the end, it was really our only choice.

The house, the land, the lake made for the perfect combination of peace and quiet that we ultimately sought out. After a long day at the parks, returning to the house was something we looked forward to... take a dip, lounge in the wonderfully manicured backyard, grill on the back porch. RInse, wash, repeat... we found ourselves in this pattern almost everyday.

Despite the owners being in the UK, they were extremely attentive when a minor glitch popped up. Rest assured they have locals taking great care to ensure that all our needs were met and in a timely fashion.

If your kids need to see Mickey every waking moment of every day, then by all means stay on site at Disney, but if you would also like to enjoy YOUR vacation, this is not a treat to miss out on.

Lovely large house on beautiful lake

  • 5 of 5

The house was exactly as we expected, based on all the pictures online. It's a large roomy place with a huge playroom and great size swimming pool with a large grassy garden on a lake! Great location for everything - we not only went to the parks but also an amazing wildlife driving trail at Apopka, Rock Springs kayaking and horse riding etc etc. Everything is within reach and it was great to come back to the house and relax in the afternoons - the kids loved the pool!

large comfortable house that need some upkeep.

  • 4 of 5

this is a very spacious house but it is in need of some upkeep. the sun room leaks when it rains and there is considerable water damage to the ceiling. the wood floors are damaged in the kitchen and by the doors. the pool cover is falling apart and is very hard to roll up. the patio is very high and needs a step to get down comfortably.( and safely). the well water was unsuitable for our drinking so we had to buy all our water. Alan was very nice when I called to let him know the dryer wasnt working and sent a repair man out in a few days and again when we ask to have the outside light bulbs replaced it took about a week. the wifi was slow if more than 1 person was connected but all in all this is a nice house for a family or large group to be comfortable. and would be really nice with some TLC and up keep.

Beautiful serene setting feels remote yet close to all you need

  • 4 of 5

A lovely well equipped home in a quiet neighborhood. This home has many amenities including a great game room. There is a walking/biking trail and bicycles were provided. We spent a lot of hours enjoying the lake view and the numerous species of birds. The home has a nice pool which we had heated for a nominal fee. While the home has the feel of being very remote it is very accessible to shopping, dining, and recreation. The check in and out procedure was very simple. The home owners were very .responsive to any questions or needs. Our stay was very relaxing and enjoyable.

Dream stay.....

  • 5 of 5

This house is exactly what we wanted..

It is set in very large grounds compared to new build properties it is not

over looked either side... Very quiet and very private being at the end of the road.

Fished in the lake every day with the poles provided biggest we caught was a 10/15lb bass.

We had the pool heated in Jan and it just takes the chill out so we did swim every day and it

is a larger than normal pool.

We did sit in the Florida room a lot as we took a great interest in an eagle fishing on the lake.

There is plenty of wild life to keep you entertained.

Used the bikes provide to go on the trail that's just across the road at the front.

Games room is huge ping pong, pool, air hockey, darts, and a big tv set up with Nintendo for the kids...

The whole house is quite large and most rooms are large we came as a family of four but there is enough room for two families of four as long as the kids could get on in the double bunk beds.. We will be coming back and maybe with another family.

Wekiva Island is a must for a visit its about 10/15mins away and the kids loved it...

Suzanne was great giving us all the local info which was very helpful.... Thank you.

We will be back. Loved it loved it loved it.....
