We are a recently retired couple of educators who love to travel. Since we love our home and neighborhood and are gone so much, we thought we would make it available to others while we are traveling.

Lovely home, tranquil atmosphere

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate to find this lovely home in DeLand. Our stay was stress-free and the location was so close to our family that lives in DeLand that we were able to spend more time with them and less time on the road. This home has everything we needed and more.

It's obvious that the owners appreciate their renters. They were extremely thoughtful and thorough with their instructions, which is most helpful.

We will definitely keep this home on our list of preferred vacation homes.

Very nice house on Lake

  • 4 of 5

On arrival the house was not ready and we found the owners actually eating with guests in their dining room. Now we did book this, sort of last minute. Only 2 days noti

Very relaxing, wonderful get-away

  • 5 of 5

The property was just as advertised with hot tub, kayaks on the lake, fire pit, bikes and even a tire swing! Only 10-15 minutes to DeLeon Springs, and about 25 minutes to the beach. The inside of the house was nice, with great views of the lake and all of the comforts of home. We would stay again recommend the property to anyone who wants to get way from it all.

We rented this property when our son was getting married nearby. It is conveniently located off the Interstate and close to stores. The location is very peaceful and restful with great views of the lake. The fire pit was a favorite place to relax in the evenings. The home is very well-equipped, and the owner is very friendly and helpful. We will definitely rent this home again!

Beautiful home, stunning views

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Deland was fabulous, Christine was available before and during our stay to answer any questions we had and was thoughtful enough to leave snacks and a detailed note with information about places to eat /see in town. The home itself was beautiful, clean and spacious with all of the amenities listed. We especially enjoyed the hot tub, fire pit and kayaks. The private backyard was amazing with incredible views of the lake, it was a bird watchers paradise; one morning, a sandhill crane came right into the yard! I would definitely stay here again if I came to Deland.

This rental home is an amazing find, it is truly beautiful secluded home minutes away from downtown. While the home is full of personality and plenty of space the highlights are the amazing patio and back yard with its private views of the lake that makes staying at this home a vacation in itself. I would recommend this rental above and beyond any hotel or rental home in the area.
