About the property

Orlando-Area Vacation Home close to Disney, Gulf, and Wekiva Park


This 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom house is a lovely and pet-friendly retreat situated in beautiful Royal Oaks Estates Community. Although tucked away in Apopka, it is only a short drive to shops, restaurants, golfing, and all Orlando area attractions including Disney, Universal, SeaWorld and International Drive. Your vacation home is fully furnished with vaulted ceilings and an open floor-plan. It includes fresh bed linens and towels to accommodate a family or group, a flat-screen TV and stereo system, updated appliances and flooring, master suite with walk-in closet, 2-car garage, outdoor grill, bicycles, onsite washer/dryer, screened porch, fenced yard, community pool/tennis courts and more.

Recommended Apopka dining includes The Back Room Steakhouse Bar and Grill, a local haunt with excellent food. Also try Catfish Place for southern style seafood served in a turn-of-the-century railroad depot or Topper’s Creamery for a sweet treat. Venture to neighboring towns such as Winter Park to experience the upscale Park Avenue restaurants such as Luma on Park. Nearby Mount Dora hosts “A Taste of our Town”, a weekly, guided food and wine tour leaving from the Chamber of Commerce building.


Orlando-area attractions are world-famous and too numerous to list comprehensively. The highlights are theme parks such as Disney’s Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, Epcot, Wet and Wild, Universal Studios, and Discovery Cove where guests swim with the dolphins! Other recommended activities include a stroll around Crane’s Roost in Altamonte Springs or paddling the length of Orlando’s Lake Eola in a swan-shaped boat. You may want to bike Apopka’s new trails, hike around Wekiwa State Park, or drive your own boat through Mt Dora’s Jungle Canal. For a little culture and nightlife, catch a show at the Bob Carr Performing Arts Centre or visit famous venues such as House of Blues, Hard Rock Café, or the Church Street pubs. Of course, don’t forget Florida East Coast and Gulf Coast beaches only 1-3 hours away including Daytona Beach, Cocoa Beach, and Clearwater Beach. Whatever your dream for the perfect vacation, Orlando can make it happen!

About Kelly Strom

I'm a Florida real estate Agent and a property owner originally from Nebraska (Go Big Red!). I lived in this property for 5 years before moving to Tampa and hope you will love it just as much as I did.

Kelly Strom purchased this house in 2006

Why Kelly Strom chose Central Florida

It's close to all area attractions but far enough away to be removed from the chaos and bustle.

What makes this house unique

I'm here to make your stay amazing! If you need anything at all, I will do my best to accommodate you.

Enjoyed our stay. Easy working with Kelly!

  • 4 of 5

Kelly was great, easy to reach and always very attentive to any requests! Nice Master BR with high ceilings. Great fenced in back yard was perfect for our two dogs. Large screen TV's with tons of channels made the nights enjoyable as well. Garage was nice to keep car clean and secure. Royal Oaks has great side walks on both sides of the road for walking the dogs at night. Apopka offers lots of food options nearby.

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean, well-maintained, and exactly as described. The complimentary bottle of wine was a nice touch! We would definitely rent this home again if we were in the area again. Great location!

Wow! What a great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We chose Apopka because my husband is an avid cyclist. The West Orange Bike Trail was close by and he loved cycling on it. The house was more than we could have asked for. The master bed was the most comfortable rental home bed that we have ever experienced, and we travel several times a year. The kitchen was stocked with a lot of little extras. Spices, sugar, flour etc. All the things you need just a little of and would hate to have to buy. The fridge has an ice maker which worked well and also provided cold filtered water. The house is tastefully decorated and the kids room has toys, games and books. Although we never used it there is a community centre nearby with a pool. The house is close to stores, restaurants and grocery stores. There is a 24 hour Super Walmart and a Sam's Club just a 5 minute drive away. Kelly is very attentive and helpful. She answers her emails very quickly. The street is quiet and in a safe area. We will definitely come here again.

Perfect home for family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

The Apopka house was just the perfect size for 5 people. The house was very well cleaned and had all of the essentials. There were zero problems. Kelly was a great host and was quick to respond to my questions. The rooms are good size and have high vaulted ceilings which make the house so much more open and airy. The neighborhood is nice and quiet. The beds were comfortable. The children's room has a great bunk and toys available for use. The kitchen is a good size. The covered patio and back yard are beautiful. The layout of the home is perfect for a family. I would recommend this place to anyone who needs a nice place to stay for 5 to 6 people.
