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!

Great location, Quite neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

The house is located in a quite neighborhood with access to a community pool which was nice to relax at during our stay. Most importantly Kelly's home is pet friendly and had a fenced in yard for our dog to run in. I appreciate Kelly's willingness to allow pets and not charge outrageous cost for that privilege. Kelly was prompt in responding to my questions and even supplied us with a crock pot and blender when I requested them. The kitchen has necessary supplies to cook at home and it was great having a gas grill on the screen in porch. My only negative comment would be to update your furniture on the porch and it would of been nice to have a king bed in the master instead of a queen. With that said though I would not hesitate recommending this home for your stay. We had hope to stay again on our next visit but the house was already booked. The house is located conveniently to major roads and Orlando. It was the perfect location for us.

Comfortable house in a nice neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

We chose this pet friendly house as it is only one mile from the West Orange Traiil where we enjoyed bicycling many days during our 4 week stay. The house is very comfortable with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. The back yard is walled in and covered with bark mulch so it was good for dogs but not for sitting out. The lanai has a wicker loveseat and chair and a grill which we did not use. The garage was great for storing our car and bikes. We loved the quiet friendly neighborhood where we could walk our dog on the sidewalk.

We did not use the pool or tennis courts but they seemed to be well maintained.

The washer and dryer are in the garage and worked well.

Kelly answered all our questions promptly.

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!
