About Dixie Fechtel

We were both raised here in Leesburg, and enjoy the small town living lifestyle. We, along with 16 members of our family are graduates of the University of Florida.

Dixie Fechtel purchased this house in 2015

Why Dixie Fechtel chose Central Florida

Enjoy a lovely view from the front porch to watch the wildlife. Bass fishing is popular right close by at Venetian Gardens! Award-winning quaint downtown Leesburg is less than two miles..accessible by foot, bike, car or golf cart....for complete list of more than 100 festivals and events in Leesburg copy and paste: http://leesburgpartnership.com/events.html Also see VisitLakeFl.com for nearby activities and events--even seaplane, boat and train tours!

From this property, many residents travel by golf cart through Venetian Gardens, home to wildlife and a children's playground.

Call for golf cart rentals: Cart World... 352 735-1800. ask for West Andrews, or google for more choices.

If you are a freshwater fisherman, this is a great place to park your boat and reel in the catch every day. There are several fishing tournaments and even a Christmas boat parade....at night!

What makes this house unique

This location is in the geographic middle of Florida, both coasts and beaches being approximately 60 miles away, as well as Disney being just an hour by way of the turnpike. This family-oriented area is perfect for seeing all the sights in Central Florida, making day trips easy to all Central Florida attractions: Disney, Sea World, Busch Gardens, Kennedy Space Center, many more. We are close to access to the Florida Turnpike and I-75. This home is not in a retirement park, and has nice neighbors! Come enjoy!

Peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

The property is beautiful with everything you could need. It's so quiet and peaceful, sitting on the backyard swing overlooking the water is so relaxing. The tree in the backyard provides a lot of shade, so its always the perfect temperature to relax outside. You can kayak on the lake and ride bikes to downtown Leesburg which is full of antique shops and diners. You can tell Dixie puts a lot of thought and effort into making sure you have everything you need. I would definitely recommend this property/owner to anyone.

This property is beautiful and immaculate - hard to believe it is a vacation rental. Real hotel luxury. However, the best thing about this rental is the owners! These people just can't do enough for you and are the nicest, finest most accommodating people you will meet. They are sincerely interested in your comfort and pleasure and happiness while enjoying their property. great part of Florida, great part of the area. A total WINNER!

Thanksgiving in Leesburg

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 including my elderly mother and 2 teens stayed here over Thanksgiving break. It was fantastic! The house is lovely and the setup worked great for us. My kids fished and kayaked from the back yard. Dixie was very accommodating and a joy to rent from. I would love to go back for a summer retreat...or possibly rent one of her other homes.

I would highly recommend this property/owner.

Families during difficult time

  • 5 of 5

My brother's family, my son and I stayed at this beautiful town home while cleaning and preparing our deceased father's residence for sale.

The home is beautiful, spacious and immaculate. It was an oasis for us to be together during this difficult trip.

Our kids could kayak,fish and we enjoyed our time together. It was so much better than a hotel.
