About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, sleeps 2 in bed

This apartment is quietly tucked away in beautiful Winter Haven, 10 minutes from LEGOLAND and 35 minutes from Disney! If golf is your game, there's a course in every direction. You will enjoy private living, a private drive-way and a fully equipped facility that will make your stay as relaxing as possible. Whether shopping the outlet malls, beach combing an hour away or fishing on a quiet lake nearby, we have it all. Our preference is that you call Rose rather than email for questions. All questions/concerns can be easily addressed this way!

Wonderful and brilliant!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here to stay close to friends and everything about my stay here was great. Rose is a wonderful hostess/owner and made me feel very welcome and everything was well accommodated and catered for. A clean and comfortable place to stay, couldn't fault it one bit! If you're looking to stay in the area I would highly recommend this property.

We stayed here to be close to family. What a very nice and clean place this is! Perfect for two. Owner is very nice and pleasant. Hoping to stay again soon. We didn't take our Yorkies, but it was nice to have the option.
