Sanford bed and breakfast description

We have years experience on another website. Ask to see our reviews!

Visit 'Real Florida' on the outskirts of Orlando. The area is quiet yet convenient to many Orlando, Daytona and New Smyrna attractions!

Our spacious home has a guest 'suite' with 3 available bedrooms and 1 private bathroom. Bedroom #1 has a queen sized bed, bedroom #2 has 2 twin sized beds, bedroom #3 has 1 full sized bed. Bedrooms #2 and #3 are adjoining. Every bed has a hand crafted custom designed quilt by (website hidden).

The home's indoor common areas include 2 large living spaces, 2 indoor limestone fire places, kitchen and bar. 1 indoor living space has a TV with DVD player and access to internet (Netflix, Pandora, etc.) but not cable. The outdoor area includes a large seasonally solar-heated salt water pool area with tiki torches, heated hot tub, gas outdoor fire pit, barbeque grill and pool bathroom. Enjoy shade umbrellas, pool floats, popsicles and cold drinks. Out back past the fence is a small dock on a canal to Lake Markham. Fishing and john boat rides available for additional charge.

Patrick has spent at least 20 years driving boats up and down the local rivers in his spare time. He would gladly take you on a personally guided tour on the river of your choice for additional charge. Winter time it is nice to go on the Saint John's River to Blue Springs to see the Manatees and have a picnic lunch. In summer time try the Saint John's River to Silver Glenn. An alternate trip any time of year is to go up the Wekiva River to the local tiki bar/swimming hole.

Patrick and Erin grew up believing people make a house a home. As one of the oldest of 7 children Patrick learned to cook a fabulous southern Sunday brunch very early in life. Erin grew up going to Grandma's every year where 30-40 people stayed for the holidays with only 1 bathroom! We do not intend those extreme conditions but we both love people and wish to meet new people and share our home with others.

Other than the main Central Florida attractions - don't forget we are also convenient to the Sanford Orlando International Airport, Kennedy Space Center, Daytona Speedway and beach, New Smyrna Beach, cross-county bike/walking trails, soccer fields, Central Florida Zoo, Lake Sylvan Park and recreation center, Blue Springs National Park, Wekiva River, St. John's River, Mount Dora, Sanford riverwalk, Sanford splash pad and large outdoor playground, Heathrow bars and restaurants, shoppes and movie theater, Ocala National Forest....the list is endless.

We are approx. 15 minutes to Sanford Orlando International Airport, 25 minutes from Disney attractions, 40 minutes to the Orlando International Airport, 30 minutes to downtown Orlando (Orlando Science Center, Church and Wall Streets), 45 minutes to premiere outlet shopping. There is easy access to Interstate 4 and toll road 417.

We welcome all guests! We are ready to accommodate families with babies and small children. The youngest guest we have hosted is 6 weeks old. She was great!

We will prepare breakfast for you each day between 7-9am. We like to serve a variety – including but not limited to homemade bread, stuffed French toast, hot/cold cereals, eggs, bacon, sausage, biscuits and gravy, blueberry or chocolate chip pancakes, home-made frappuccinos, fresh fruit smoothies, coffee, hot cocoa and tea bar.

Come visit and see the stars from the back yard with a short commute to many Central Florida attractions!

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2011

          About the owner: Patrick and I enjoy many hobbies and activities such as water skiing, bike riding, hosting parties, home brewing beer, and traveling. We also have a 6 year old son who keeps us laughing daily! We have opened our home as a 'host' on this website in hopes that we can expose ourselves and our son to new friends, cultures and experiences through the process. So far we have been truly blessed by the guests coming into our home. We enjoy helping visitors plan their activites by giving 'Tips from the locals'. If you have a question - we are very open and honest, just ask! We have a welcoming, relaxing and quiet home.

          Why the Owner Chose Sanford:
          We've had such a great response from our guests on another website - we want to start working with VRBO also!
