Sebring condo description

Experience the pleasures of a pampered tourist in the idyllic setting of a vacation resort community in Florida's pastoral lakes region, an escape from the metropolitan crowds, traffic and stress of our Gulf and Atlantic neighbors, who often come here throughout the year to unwind, if only for a brief reprieve. Our privately owned and managed resort villa offers just this kind of opportunity to indulge. Welcome to the community of Country Club Villas of Spring Lake and Spring Lake Golf Resort of Sebring, Florida!

Bring only your suitcase and toothbrush; we will take care of the rest! We offer an immaculate, beautifully decorated, 2 bedroom, 2 bath villa with all of the amenities you would expect with a vacation home. You see, unlike corporate protocol, we will greet you personally and ensure your comfort and needs during your stay because we live close by in the community. As locals, we can answer questions and make suggestions on where to go, what to see and do and how best to make your stay as comfortable as possible. There is a difference!

Main features of the master bedroom suite include a designer coordinated queen bed, computer table and padded chair, full bathroom with ceramic tile floor & walk-in shower, and a walk-in closet. The guest bedroom has two, designer/matching twin beds and the living room has a sofa ensemble with a concealed, pull-out queen size bed. You will have all the linens, towels and blankets you will need. Additionally, there is a washer and dryer set inside a concealed closet area with detergent, bleach, clothes iron, ironing board, etc. off the hallway inside your vacation villa when you need it.

For your enjoyment, there is an entertainment center in the living room with TV, DVD/CD player, and an amplified surround sound system. Additionally, we have left a modest selection of quality DVD movies at the villa. The villa has 3 televisions, all on cable.

The kitchen is, of course, fully equipped with everything you would need to prepare and serve snacks to complete gourmet meals for every day meals and entertaining.

Walk to one of two, beautifully landscaped, heated swimming pools and relax at day’s end.

                  Car: Necessary

                  The most obvious, outstanding feature of this area is the increasingly difficult-to-find locale AWAY from traffic, noise, and hoards of tourists. This is decidedly a lay back environment.

                  If you're a golfer, you will have the option to purchase access to 18 hole, world class championship courses or try your luck at the putting green or driving range, check out the clubhouse with restaurant and pro shop. Additionally, you should know that Spring Lake Golf Resort runs specials on their golf packages.

                  If you are not a golfer or a golfer looking for a diversion, there's other activities to consider. For example,if you're an early riser, you may want to join joggers or bicyclers on nearby Duane Palmer Blvd., a quiet, tree-lined thoroughfare bordering fine homes.

                  On nearby Arbuckle Creek, less than a 5 minute drive away, you can arrange for an airboat tour, the route of which also includes the Northern section of Lake Istokpoga.

                  Istokpoga Park, (7 minutes by car), offers a scenic, quiet retreat on a woodland trail or long pier jutting out into the Northern end of 5 by 10 mile Lake Istokpoga. Or rent a horse & explore nearby woodland trails.

                  Highlands Hammock State Park on the West side of town offers an opportunity to experience the real Florida with it's many trails and elevated boardwalks through the swamp where you'll likely see wildlife. There is also a park tram with a guided tour, a museum, and a rustic restaurant.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2004

                  About the owner: Hello .......... I am John, a recent widower, who lives about 1 1/2 miles from the villa featured here. I was born and raised in Boston, Massachusetts and I retired from teaching special education programs in Florida in June, 2011. I have been involved in international vacation home exchanges for many years both with my daughters and late wife and we very much enjoyed meeting new people and experiencing/learning about new cultures, customs/traditions, history, and languages.

                  Why the Owner Chose Sebring:
                  The villa we purchased is located in an up-end, country club setting and serves both as a long term investment and as a second home which we used for international, non simultaneous, home exchanges during the slow season. We purposely chose this location not only due to the close proximity of our home but also because of its position in a country club setting distant from the noise, crowds, and crime of metropolitan centres, a feature which, we are told, is desirable, by contrast to other Florida vacation destinations.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  I live in a home 1 1/2 miles from this unit and don't generally stay at the villa but rather use it as a vacation retreat, (when it's not rented), and to offer to friends and guests who come here to enjoy our climate and the quiet, pastoral environment to help forget the 'life in the fast lane.' This sort of approach to vacations offers guests the opportunity for a truly, laid back, (& native), outdoor experience with the benefits of a local, friendly, country club community.
