Anne Dansby purchased this house in 1995
This location was purchased because of the quality water front beauty, and the home was designed and built for family time and outdoor enjoyment.
The natural attributes of the aquatic environment- wild birds, fishing, swimming, boating, privacy, and million dollar sunsets provide a high quality of life environment.
The location provides convenience to the daily necessities of family, and access to all of the desired vacation attractions of Florida.
This home was the PERFECT vacation spot for our family and friends. We were two doors down from additional family members and we could walk to each house on the beach. The openness of the floorplan was great as we cooked out and had over 24 people and everyone had seating. We spent an entire week floating in the water! The sunsets and sunrises were awesome. The proximity to Eaton's Beach was fantastic as we rented jet skis and a pontoon. Took tons of pictures. We will definitely make this a repeat destination. Mrs. Dansby was a gracious hostess!!!
The home was very nice and spacious. Would stay there again anytime.......Mrs. Dansby was very helpful and easy to deal with. Our first time at this lake and will def go back.
The Dansby family home is first class all the way. Mrs. Dansby is great to deal with looking forward to our next stay.
What a perfect place to gather with family and friends. If I could give it more than 5 stars I would. We were in town for my sons wedding and the family decided we wanted to be all together instead of getting separate hotel rooms and gathering in the lobby. This rental property provided us with more than we expected, at a price less than we would have paid for all of us to stay at a hotel for the same period of time.
This home comfortably slept eight adults and two children and is completely outfitted with everything you need to enjoy your stay. All you need to do is stop at the grocery store which is only about ten minutes away. The master bedroom and huge private bathroom with a garden bath tub and walk-in shower was perfect for the honeymoon suite with its king size bed and beautiful view of the lake through it's large picture window. Two large sitting areas indoors with large sliding doors that open to the oversized patio and lanai makes this home bright and cheerful. The screened in lanai with TV and a full size porch swing was a favorite spot to hang out in the evening. There is an extra large two level deck with plenty of seating overlooking the lake and it's breathtaking sunsets. To top it all off there is a beautiful white sandy beach and swim area which is ideal for those that want to bring their water toys.
I can not thank the homeowner enough for allowing us the enjoyment of their lovely home.
We enjoyed our stay very much. The house was plenty big enough for the 4 of us adults plus our 14 guests that came to visit one day. The outside deck is huge & very comfortable. Plenty of shady spots. We utilized the additional folding tables & chairs in the garage. That was very much appreciated. The Weber charcoal grill worked fine, but a gas grill would have been nicer. The sunsets are incredible & the view is just as good. There are steps that lead down to the sandy beach, but a good work out to climb back up. The house was well supplied with absolutely everything you needed, even some spices, paper products, etc.., that were left by past vacationers. There was also an abundance of bath towels & 4 beach towels. All rooms had ceiling fans. It was nice to keep the huge sliding doors open during the day & let the breeze come in. Beds were all comfortable & bedrooms were a decent size. We rented a pontoon boat from the "Nest" nearby & enjoyed it for 1 day. It was a lot fun exploring the very large Lake Weir. Anne was very friendly & very gracious from start to finish. She even left us a basket of fruit!
This was a great place to stay! Our family stayed here for 3 months while our home was being built/remodeled and it was such a great experience. The owners are wonderful to deal with and so gracious. The home is beautifully decorated in a very comfortable, relaxing atmosphere. Our kids really enjoyed the lake and beach with the volleyball net. They had lots of outdoor toys and games as well as plenty of indoor fun with cards, puzzles, movies, etc. The sunsets on the lake were some of the most spectacular we have ever experienced. We really enjoyed our time there and the kids didn't want to leave!
