A Splendid Place for a Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the lake-home. It was perfectly adequate for all nine adults with a deck that allowed us to to watch the breathtaking sunsets. The kitchen was large enough for all of us to be working in, if necessary, and the living space superb! The lanaii was an added bonus. The very functional laundry room came in handy too. A very well-designed floor-plan, clean, bright and spacious. Anne Dansby was a wonderful hostess.

Perfect for a family reunion

  • 5 of 5

we went to spend a week (Thanksgiving) to East Lake weir and stayed at this very comfortable and huge house. Although it rained for two days, we managed to have lots of fun. I highly recommend Eaton's restaurant: service and food really amazing. A wonderful place to be away from it all and yet close by "The Villages" .

Awesome Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

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!!!

Fabulous Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

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.
