Thanks so much!
We really enjoyed having you! We hope to see you next year. Amanda
Awesome place perfect for a trip with friends
Amanda is a wonderful host! My friends and I made a spring break trip to Florida and she made sure we had everything we needed. She kept us stocked with snacks and was quick to resolve any issues we had. We especially liked being so close to the bakery nearby and ate breakfast there a few days.
Brooke, Sam and friends, we really enjoyed having you and thanks for leaving the apartment so clean. I really hope you keep us in mind for next year.
Place was clean and comfortable
We really enjoyed our stay. Nice to not be stuck in a hotel. Country atmosphere was refreshing. Would definitely consider staying here again.
Trica, it was so nice having you and we hope you stay with us again next year.
I felt the price of the place was high for what you get.
The bathroom was way too small for comfort. The owners were pleasant. The Yalaha bakery being so close was a plus!
Cheryl, sorry you felt that way but all pictures and descriptions are accurate on website before you book. I even gave you a big discount for staying the two months and let you have your cat and dog which I never let cats but made an exception. There is no hotel around or rental that you could get for the fair price you had. I take pride in how clean the apartment is and you left it messy. It took me 3 days to clean after you left and I had to buy a new vase that your husband broke. I also had to buy a new quilt due to your cat ruining it from all of the cat hair. I also had to pay steam cleaners to come for carpets plus you left cat litter. I also gave you your whole deposit back and never charged you. I learned a valuable lesson to never let cats in again.
We enjoyed our month visit!
My husband and I stayed at the Blueberry Farm for the entire month of April. We arrived on April 1st, Easter, from Pennsylvania. Amanda was ready for us after our 3 day drive, with the apartment looking inviting and a Welcoming gift basket filled with goodies.
Within a few days, our Shih Tzu was in distress and we turned to Amanda and Doug for help. They suggested their Vet in Eustis and off we went for excellent doctoring.
Having stayed a month, while looking for, and purchasing, a mobile home to become Snowbirders, we walked around the blueberry field daily, talked to the chickens every morning, ate the BBQ food on weekends, listened to the live entertainment, both at the Farm and the Yalaha Bakery right next door, enjoyed the Air Show over Mt. Dora Lake and many other events. As someone once said to me, there's always something to do in Florida, when it's sunny and warm.
As luck would have it, our settlement on the mobile home, extended our stay by 2 days, which Amanda and Doug graciously allowed for a very reasonable price.
Would we recommend staying here? We most certainly would! The apartment has everything you would want, or need and the McCormacks are very kind and helpful. We feel we now have new friends in the McCormacks. Thank you both (and Dave) very much for your warm, welcoming acceptance and hospitality! Bill & Millicent
Clean, cute, cozy and quiet. Charming farm setting complete with chickens (NO ROOSTERS!).
Delicious bakery is a 5 minute walk away for breakfast and lunch.
