This is the place if you are looking for a nice quiet getaway at a fair price, in a great Central Florida location. The immediate surrounding area is very good for golf, fishing, walking, biking, & stargazing. Close by car are all the shopping and business necessities you need as well as attractions including beautiful Bok Tower Gardens and Legoland. Disney World, Sea World, Universal, Busch Gardens, beaches, airports are all within 1 hour. We would love to have you come enjoy our home.
Our home was built by my grandfather and served as a summer vacation spot for our family. It is located in what I call a rural neighborhood, meaning there are several houses in the area but they are scattered. We own the wooded lots around our home which gives a greater sense of peace and privacy. Everyone loves enjoying calm peaceful mornings on the front porch watching the birds, squirrels and rabbits.

About john searcy
We, Phil and Sally, grew up in Winter Haven Florida, we were high school sweethearts and have been married for over 60 years. We currently live in Oviedo, FL which is a little town on the eastern side of Orlando.
Why john searcy chose Lake Wales
This property was built by Sally' dad as his retreat. Just a place to get away from his business as pharmacist for the Winter Haven hospital. He loved to tinker in the yard, sit by the fire, stargaze, take walks, read and fish. We spent many summer vacations here with our 4 children.
What makes this House unique
What we love about the house, other than the family history and memories, is the tranquility and simplicity. A very easy, quiet and comfortable place to be. Having a leisurely breakfast on the front porch, relaxing and reading a good book, taking a nap :) . Nearby Bok Tower, Many Golf Courses, World Class fishing.

An enjoyable, hassle-free, relaxing experience
The home is situated in a peaceful, quiet neighborhood surrounded by orange groves. It is well furnished with all the amenities one could desire for an extended stay. There are several nice restaurants nearby, superb fishing, golf courses, farmers markets with picked-that-day produce, an excellent library in Lake Wales, and a movie theater. The neighborhood roads are excellent for walking and there are nearby parks with walking/jogging paths. The house is centrally located in the state making it an excellent "base camp" for exploring Florida. The landlords are incredibly responsive and we've come to regard them as family. We intend to take advantage of their hospitality for many more years. Steve and Teri Graham
