  • Quiet and Private


    We had the opportunity to spend a whole month renting this home. We enjoyed the aspect of being in a quiet and rural setting, and although the adjacent roadway can be a bit busy, the house is quite soundproof and quiets down at night. There are dogs in the neighborhood who get riled up during the nights at times, with lots of barking.The house is roomy with plenty of space to read or watch TV, and the kitchen was easy to navigate. There are not restaurants or stores close by so we cooked dinner nearly every night. The appliances throughout the home were beautiful, but we frequently used the barbecue outside. Although there were several chairs by the pool, there was not a patio table to eat at, so we sat at the kitchen counter instead.This was a great location to spend a winter month and explore Lake County, close to Mount Dora, Eustis and Ocala National Forest. The owners were on a different part of the property, and were responsive to any questions we had.We enjoyed renting this home.

  • Absolutely horrible!!!


    Property owners stay right on property less than 500 feet from house in a pole barn. House was not as described. House had roaches!! No housekeeping was done. Light switches were nasty. Pool was super cold. Hot tub DID NOT heat! Maggie was extremely rude and talked down to me and the male that came to tell us there was nothing he could do was super rude. Check in process was eerie, house was in the middle of no where and host was supposed to leave keys. No instructions for house as far as lights outside which given Florida wildlife is a big safety concern. The TV's were very limited. One of the TV's only worked half the time. Being in the middle of no where with all these issues and over 1600 miles away is very unsettling. Not as unsettling as a dirty house during a pandemic. I want my money back!

    Manager's Response:

    Hi David, we want all of our guests to rest easy when they stay with us, and we're sorry that you weren't completely satisfied with this property.
    - We inform guests in the pre-stay email that the homeowner lives on-site, but we are sorry that this caught you off guard.
    - We will update the listing to include this, though the owner let us know that the units do not face each other, so guests will rarely see them unless a problem arises.
    - The homeowners were aware that you would be arriving after dark, so they left the keys on the porch and the lights on for you.
    - The owners also let you know how to turn on the outdoor lights.
    - The house was thoroughly cleaned before your arrival, and the owners were not notified of any concerns regarding cleanliness, pests, the hot tub, or the TVs.
    - Living on-site, the owners are always available to address issues promptly, and they wish you would have let them know about your concerns. They are known for being helpful and polite and assured us that they were kind in all interactions.
    All items have since been investigated, and we are confident that future guests will find this home clean and comfortable!

  • Fantastic property with a perfect setup for three or four people.


    Perfect location for three friends visiting a friend who lives down the road. The open kitchen and large living room were great for hanging out and talking. It was clean and inviting. The only downside was the address was listed as ‘country' instead of ‘county' road which lead to a brief detour. Also the back deck needs some attention (wood screws sticking out of the wood), which could be a definite issue with kids.

  • Nice place!


    We had a group of 8 friends for the weekend. Most of us were on motorcycles. Comfortable inside, roomy and very clean! A bit limited on kitchen utensils, though. Wanted to spend time outdoors, but no lawn chairs for around the fire pit. Pool and spa were like new, but the hot tub is not heated. Disappointing since that was one of the deciding features when we chose the property. Deck and fencing could use some TLC. We would ask for more details of what is there next time. Overall, a good place to stay! Thanks, Maggie!
