About the property

2-Bedroom Mid-Century Home Close to Everything & Far from the Maddening Crowds!

Welcome to Hayden House! Located in one of Old Orlando's coolest neighborhoods, College Park, the home's convenient central Orlando location puts you just minutes from everything Central Florida has to offer. Whether you are in the area for a meeting downtown or to visit one of Orlando's many tourist attractions, you will find it very easy to access it all from Hayden House! And the best part, when you return to your "home away from home", you will appreciate both Hayden House's amenities and the surrounding neighborhood's charming homes and vistas, a perfect place for a run, jog or leisurely walk.

A bit about Hayden House:

Approx 1200 Square Feet

2-Bedrooms, each with Queen Beds and 32" TVs



Dining Room

Living Room

Game Room

Laundry Room w/ new HE washer & dryer

Screened Porch


2-car carport

Fenced Yard

Free Hi-Speed Wifi

15 Minutes to Universal Studios

22 Minutes to Disney

9 Minutes to Millennia Mall

50 Minutes to Daytona Beach (but we suggest going to New Smyrna instead -- it's what the locals do)

Restaurants? Sooo many Restaurants:

The number of restaurants and eateries along Edgewater Drive (the main drive in College Park) is almost ridiculous. Our favorites include:


Christo's Cafe

Outpost Neighborhood Cafe


Infusion Tea (Vegetarian Teahouse)

But don't think College Park is the only place to eat and shop...

Winter Park's Park Avenue is literally minutes away as are numerous

Downtown Orlando venues.

About John Bathen

In 2014 we rented this home for a winter vacation and loved it so much we jumped on the chance to buy it when it came on the market in 2015.

Hi! We are Barney and Sam, two Boston Terriers from Nashville. Our Dads bought this house as a second home for us to escape the cold winters in Nashville. Well, it's not really cold for most people, but, Boston Terriers are a little sensitive to weather and we do love to lay in the sun on the back patio and/or porch -- so we're a little spoiled. And you will be too after your stay at Hayden House. We just love it!

John Bathen purchased this house in 2015

Why John Bathen chose College Park

One of our Dads (they are both named John) grew up in Orlando and went to high school just down the road from this house. He has always loved this neighborhood and so will you. We take walks daily and there's always a great new street or pocket park to explore. There are lakes everywhere and the whole area is charming. Many of the streets are paved with bricks and the live oak trees in the yards are amazing.

College Park is a distinct neighborhood in the city of Orlando. It gets its name from the many streets in the community named after places of higher learning like Princeton, Harvard, and Yale. Its close proximity to downtown has made it a popular residential area for over a century.

In recent years, Edgewater Drive, the main drive in College Park, was converted to a two-lane road with wide bike lanes which makes it even easier to get around to all the shops and restaurants.

Wonderful home, beautiful neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in your home!

It was comfortable and spotless. There was nothing we needed that wasn’t available!

We really appreciated the fact that our family could bring their dog when they came out for an evening visit and dinner with us.

The traffic on I-4 between the parks and the house was horrible, but your house was in a very convient location!

We hope to stay with you again in the future!

Loved the remodel and appreciated the whole midcentury flavor of the house. Lovely neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

Close to the highway/city to get to vacation activities easily, but still felt like home, being in a "secluded" neighborhood. We took morning walks around the lake and explored the nearby town and restaurants. Totally appreciated the midcentury styling, that's what we picked it for! Everything was clean and pristine and having the ability to cook and do laundry was great. Made use of the patios both screened in and outside. (Our only thought would be if there were bigger windows between the inside and the patios) , but that's not at all a reflection on the service/hospitality of renting your home. In that respect it's 5 stars! Your home made our vacation feel like our home! Thank you, and we would recommend your rental to any midcentury loving vacationers out there.

Loved it! Great value for a super Mid Century modern feel! Just the right size for our family.

  • 5 of 5

Hayden House was perfect for our family. Close to the Amusement Parks and our Florida family in Minneola. We loved the retro foodie area of restaurants on Edgewater Drive! Would definitely check that out! Loved that I found a Jazzercise to attend only a mile down the road! Can’t brag enough about the feel of the decor inside the house. My husband is a huge ping pong player & seeing him teach two ten year olds to play was priceless. We even had a night to order in Anthony’s pizza and play UNO. Relaxing from all the amusement park days! Definitely would come back again.

Our Go-To VRBO Rental in Orlando

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at this lovely house in Orlando. The kitchen has been remodeled so the house is even better than the first time we stayed. The house is small and cosy, perfect for the two of us and our dog. We like the location because we prefer being in central Orlando, away from the big theme parks. They are easy to get to if you want to go, but we prefer to be near the downtown restaurants, museums and parks. The neighborhood is great for walks; nearby Lake Adair is full of birds. We enjoyed seeing nesting great blue herons and cormorants, diving pelicans, wood ducks, turtles, etc. in our walks around the lake.

College Park, Florida Hayden House

  • 5 of 5

Had a very pleasant stay. House was set up very well for 2 - 4 people. The kitchen was great. We liked the fact that not only was the house and yard pet-friendly, but the neighborhood was good for walks as well.

We enjoyed our stay. The location was convenient to downtown Orlando and numerous restaurants. We loved walking through the neighborhood and enjoyed the wildlife along the nearby lakes.
