About Terry & Tim

Eustis residents! Local business owners! Just regular folks like yourselves! We love to TRAVEL and enjoy staying in homes during our trips so we know what to provide to our guests since we're regularly on the other side of the coin! We also love to boat, ride motorcycles and camp! We are helpful but not intrusive with our guests......

Terry & Tim purchased this house in 2006

Why Terry & Tim chose Eustis

Great location to downtown Eustis and all it has to offer with the festivals, restaurants, Lake Eustis boardwalk. While our home is in city, we also are fortunate to be on a private gated compound with lake behind our cottages! It is like having the best of two worlds!!

Just what we wanted!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I (and our pug!) needed to escape the New England winter for a few weeks and the Osprey cottage was just perfect! I have rented many houses on multiple sites and this one by far was the cleanest and most well stocked of any I have been in. Terry and Tim are such wonderful people, and go above and beyond what you expect from the owners. Terry reached out directly when I had questions and called us when we were late coming in the first day to be sure all was OK and we would have no issues settling into the house.

It is located behind a small pond that has plenty of wildlife..herons, sand cranes , egrets and a bald eagle. I spent many mornings setting in the sun room with my coffee and binoculars. The backyard has a fenced in yard perfect for your pet. The house is cozy, well maintained - lots of little touches to make you feel at home. It's great to have the washer and dryer too since we were there for several weeks. You are very close (walking distance) to downtown Eustis (see the beautiful sunsets on the lovely boardwalk on Lake Eustis) and some great restaurants and bars. If you like to golf, this area has many good courses close by that are very reasonably priced. We will definitely be back!

What a nice place!

  • 5 of 5

Rented the house for my adult children. The house was very homey and had a fully stocked kitchen. The kids loved sitting outside watching the wildlife.

When we have other company I will most certainly check the availability of this rental.

Great Cottage Good Location

  • 5 of 5

I rented this house for my parents and out of town guests for a wedding that was being held nearby. The cottage is adorable, cozy, and well maintained. My parents could not stop raving about it. It was their first time staying in a VRBO and that had them a little uneasy at first. The owners were very easy to communicate with and accommodating. The big alligator in the pond out back was a special "Florida surprise"!

The house was very clean and was decorated cute.

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable stay. The house is centrally located, so we were able to go to the gulf coast and the Atlantic coast in short day trips. Plus we found many cool things to do in town.

Convenient and Cozy

  • 5 of 5

Terry was a great host. We stayed at her cottage for the Lake County Folk Festival at Ferran Park. The house is located within walking distance of the park and was very convenient for the event. We appreciated the wifi too.
