About The Seeley's

This really is our little getaway house. We escape from city life and head to the lake. We hope you love it as much as we do. It's very well appointed vs. most vacation rentals since it's truly our second home.

The Seeley's purchased this house in 2005

Why The Seeley's chose Winter Haven

Great view, preserve across the lake, very quiet and serene.

What makes this house unique

Bring your boat if you'd like! Dock it right behind the house. And the fully fenced yard will keep your pets safe.

Beautiful piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

OMG..... that was my first impression upon arriving to the Seeley's lake house. The house is amazing. Locate on Lake Rochelle, this place was perfect for our much needed winter vacations. Super quite neighborhood, and close to the town amenities (Walmart, Longhorn, supermarkets, etc.) , the property was very clean and well maintained. The extra amenities of canoe, and small fishing pole, really made our stay especial!!! (Having never gone fishing before...) Communication with owner was super fast and efficient. Would recommend to anyone looking to spend a great stay (at an amazing price also!) away from the noise and craziness of Orlando and surrounding areas. Thank you!!!

I loved this place! Beautiful views, quiet neighborhood, and very peaceful. The house is adorable and fully stocked with just about anything one could need. The owners were very kind and quick to respond to my emails. I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it.

Wonderful house, extra special experience thanks to the owners!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot recommend this enough! I had the best time staying at the Seeleys' house while attending Sun 'n Fun 2017 as an exhibitor. What a wonderful thing to come home every evening after a full day of work at the show and find such tranquility and beauty in the back yard. After the first day, my feet were so blistered and sore I could barely walk, and I was ever grateful to find Band-Aids in the cabinet. Such a small thing seems insignificant, but it meant the world to me because that Band-Aid allowed me to walk in comfort on day two! I spoke with the Seeleys on several occasions during my stay because they wanted to make sure I was comfortable and had everything I needed. We became friends along the way, not something that happens every day when renting a house for a week. The house was clean, well-appointed, and I enjoyed the wildlife. The last day of the show, I unexpectedly purchased an airplane which meant I needed to go home to Oregon on the scheduled day, then fly back to Florida three days later to pick up my plane. This meant I needed to spend one more night in Florida after I returned, and the Seeleys were gracious enough to provide the house for another night. They said I could just leave my things there during the three days I was gone so I wouldn't have to carry things back and forth. The last night was great, and a much-welcome night of rest before a 3,500-mile cross country trip back to Oregon in a single-engine, 90 HP airplane. I enjoyed sharing my adventure with the Seeleys! Personal touches mean a lot, and this house felt like home from the minute I walked in. I highly recommend not only the house, but the owners as well. They know how to make you feel welcome and appreciated! Thank you, Florida Seeleys!! You're the best!

Just what we were looking for...

  • 5 of 5

This lake property was just what we were looking for to spend January days in Fla just soaking up the sunny weather! The fenced in yard was perfect for my Dads small dog. Subdivision has flat roads to walk on. It is close to so many things to do......would be fabulous place for summer to come for all activities on the lake! Owners are easy to work with also! We sure hope to return next year! We so enjoyed our stay!

Great first tast of central Florida

  • 5 of 5

Our stay turned out to be much longer than anticipated because of home closing complications. The house gave us a good respite from our move from out of state and a great place from which to explore our new surroundings. We had literally everything we needed to feel at home with the bonus of a lake to watch as it changed its moods from serene to stormy. Mrs. Seeley was very flexible and kind to accommodate our circumstances, even welcoming our dog and cats. The completely fenced yard was a great convenience, and the lovely terra cotta tile floors throughout provided a cool ambience. The bathrooms have lovely tiled decor, again with everything you need. The house is a tri-level with plenty of room, but be aware that there are lots of stairs if you want the use of the entire house. If you like bird watching, the Seeleys thoughtfully provide binoculars and birding books for identifying the birds that frequent the lake. The house is on a quiet cul-de-sac in a neighborhood good for walking. Winter Haven is easy to navigate. This was our first taste of central Florida and we're glad we found the Seeleys.
