It took me about a month to find a house to rent near our daughters home,

this home fit all of our needs. Very nice, we would stay there again.

Couple of very minor items, a listing of the channels for Sling TV, and having the light switches marked to what lights a switch turned on/off, again very minor.

Great location, comfortable home!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful week at this property over Christmas, and entertained our family for Christmas day dinner here. It was perfect for our needs - very open and I loved how the kitchen is open into the living area, with the large bar/counter area to sit and eat. The hosts were lovely to deal with, very responsive and had great follow up. We loved sitting on the screened in porch and looking at the pretty lake, in fact my husband got up every day to watch the sun rise over the lake. Very relaxing! We didn't use the deck much, but it was great and I can imagine in the summer/spring it would be a wonderful place to hang out.

Highly recommend the location - it is in Sanford, close to Lake Mary which has a lot of shopping, restaurants, and the key highways, I-4 and 417. It is also an easy drive to the best beach near Orlando, New Smyrna Beach. <3 Much better in my opinion to stay this way, north of Orlando, than down by the busy attractions with all the congestion from the tourists visiting the theme parks. Even if you ARE in town to visit the theme parks, stay out this way and you'll feel more like a local and will get a better feel for how great the Orlando area is instead of just seeing the Disney-fied version. :)

The hosts supplied most of the basics like TP, a roll of paper towels, starter soap in the bathrooms, etc.

The home does need some updates and fixes here and there. The bathrooms could be updated and the kitchen sink as well. The shower in the master bedroom has a serious water pressure problem that might be solved with a new shower head. After one awful shower, I used the shower in the other bathroom for the rest of our stay, which was great. I have to be clear that there was nothing that made us feel uncomfortable. It's a lovely, comfy home. The only suggestion I would have for the owners is that the king mattress in the bedroom was pretty uncomfortable - would suggest just buying a nice thick mattress topper and that would do the trick. :)

Remember this is Florida on a lake, so no matter how tempting to get fresh air, don't leave the porch door open, because mosquitoes will come in to the house. That's not the fault of anyone - just a reality around lakes in Florida! And it's worth it to have the great lake view!

Very much enjoyed and we would love to stay again if we had the need for a comfy "home" to stay in the Orlando area. Would recommend to anyone!

Beautiful house on the lake !!

  • 5 of 5

Nice get away for the week. The house had everything that we needed. Location was perfect from the baseball fields where we played.

Only recommendation is it needs more televisions in the house with at least basic cable. Thanks again Erin for everything!!

I was in the Lake Mary area for business purposes and needed a place to stay for a few weeks. This house was an excellent choice. It is nicely furnished and the owners are very responsive and welcoming. I really enjoyed the lake view, it is very relaxing. The neighborhood is fine, as are the neighbors. Read the other reviews and they will tell you the same thing, this is a great lake house.

My house was not big enough to accommodate my family coming down to visit me so we rented this house. Beautiful house in a quiet neighborhood. Could not have asked for more. Thank you for making my family's vacation a memorable one! They are already talking about coming back next year.

Great for our family of 6!

  • 5 of 5

I try not to give 5 stars because I have a hard time believing reviews with 5 stars but, I honestly cannot think of any real complaints with this rental. The house was clean with no bugs at all. I used to live in Florida & most houses had cockroaches but, not this house. The only negative I can think of is our teenagers thought the couch pull-out bed was uncomfortable & it would have been nice to have more lightweight bedding with a few more pillows. The rest of the beds were extremely comfortable! My hubby has major back problems (back fusion) & he loved the bed & slept great.

We truly enjoyed our stay here. Our 4 teenagers enjoyed playing darts in the back screened in patio. My husband & I loved sitting on the reclining patio chairs. There was plenty of seating & room to move around In the house.

We would most definitely stay here again!
