About Dellynne Strawbridge

No big deal about me. My husband and I love being able to call ourselves Floridians, and we are so glad to be able to have this home in which we and others can rest and recuperate from the many things that weigh on us in this life. We love the solitude, and we also love that we are so near the wonderful chaos of sports, entertainment, adventure, and exercise. Best of all worlds, in our view. We are hopeful of sharing our experience with lots of other adventurers going forward.

Dellynne Strawbridge purchased this house in 2013

Why Dellynne Strawbridge chose Auburndale

Our good friend who built and lived in this home for years loved this house, and we are so thankful that when he felt he had to sell it he reached out to us to continue caring for the home he loved. So many details in the home underscore his commitment to building a home he could enjoy long term. Though we were sad he felt it necessary to move, we are so grateful he entrusted us with its care. We hope any who stay here will have a sense of Billy's love of excellence as they enjoy the home.

What makes this house unique

The house is on a spacious near acre, with access to and views of a beautiful and private Central Florida Lake, complete with the daily romance of take-offs and landings of several aquatic airplanes on the next door lake. We and our grandchildren love the fun of this ongoing wonder. We love being one mile from the Lake Myrtle Soccer/Baseball Complex, where there are tournaments and games all year round. If we ride along the 39 mile trail from that complex, we pass alpaca farms, cattle ranches, and miles of quiet and exquisite Florida landscape. We are so uniquely blessed to get to share this with our renters. If the Disney/Universal/Sea World adventures draw you, then you can be thankful that you are way less than a hour from all the above, and you will be glad to learn that the Tampa and Orlando Airports are both easily accessible from this great location. While enjoying this home, please feel free to wander over to the lakeside on the adjacent lot, and let us know if you want to enjoy the water mat or the balance boards while you are here. We may be able to accommodate 2 of you on our cycles for the nearby 39 mile trail.

This home is ideally located for families who have come to experience Florida's Theme Parks, as well as for those who love to be in Florida for Sun 'n Fun or for Spring Training Baseball Season. The Lake Myrtle Sports Complex- 1 mile away- is usually "teeming" with sports events you may enjoy: soccer, baseball, or the occasional LaCrosse competitions. Teams come from around the state and from all over the country when it comes to baseball season (quite a few college teams) utilize these wonderful facilities for tournament and seasonal play.

Fabulous property and great owner!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first VRBO and if they were all like this I would do it over and over. We stayed at this property for a week and it was awesome. Dellynne went out of her way to make us feel at home. From the stocked fridge to the candy and flowers in each room. The screened porch was the perfect place to have coffee in the morning and a wonderful spot for dinner off the grill. The sunrise and sunset off the lake were gorgeous. I can’t say enough about the hosts - they were awesome. We will definitely be back!!!

Owner's Response: We are so glad we had an opportunity to host this family in our home. Though our visit was brief as we welcomed them to our home, we were so impressed with our guests for that week in February. They treated our home with exceptional care, and they left everything in remarkable order and cleanliness. My husband and I will be thrilled to welcome them back anytime! We were so pleased that they had such ready access to the ball fields at Lake Myrtle where their son/grandson was involved in a baseball tournament for his College Team.

Relaxing and thoroughly enjoyable

  • 5 of 5

The house is comfortable, beautifully decorated, plenty of kitchenware, and the hosts went out of their way to ensure we had a wonderful stay. Lots of goodies in the fridge and pantry and even flowers and a card for our mother’s birthday. The screened room was a great place to watch the sunrise over the lake and the perfect spot to entertain our families in the evening. Convenient to shopping yet so quiet you wouldn’t know you were in a neighborhood. Totally delightful stay.

Owner's Response: My husband and I had the privilege of hosting this delightful couple, and we would love to host them again and again. They took such wonderful care of our home and they left it immaculately clean. They, and the guests we have been privileged to have prior to their stay, have made us so thankful that we have this opportunity to make the home available to such amazing people. Their comments about our home were so kind and we are grateful for this generous feedback. It adds to our desire to share this home and to have the privilege of meeting more people like them.

Welcoming and cozy

  • 5 of 5

If I ever need to come back to Auburndale or the surrounding areas, I will definitely be contacting Dellynne to stay at this property. I was at Auburndale for close to two months and I really enjoyed this cozy home. If you are on vacation or on business and are looking to for a place to stay, I would highly recommend this home. Dellynne an her family took really good care of us and I'm sure they will do the same for you.

This home is ideal for relaxing and family enjoyment, indoors, in the spacious back yard, or by the lake on the well shaded lawn next door (also our home). It serves also as a perfect launching pad for activities nearby, as close as the multiple soccer and baseball fields a mile away, with access to the 39 mile walking/biking trail from their parking areas (Lake Myrtle Sports Complex), and almost equidistant to adventures in Tampa and Orlando, including Busch Gardens, Tampa Aquarium, Disney Theme Parks, Universal Studios, Sea World, Beaches on either side of the state, etc. On any given day during your stay, you can have a full day's adventure at one of many optional theme parks and still get home for a relaxing evening with family or friends. Or nearer, consider Fantasy of Flight within a 15 minute drive. If you come to Florida for Spring Training, you will like your access to multiple baseball venues: Lakeland, Winter Haven, Tampa and Orlando. Lake Myrtle Sports Complex has year round games featuring soccer, baseball, and even occasional LaCrosse. We absolutely love our homes in Auburndale and stay as often as our schedule and availability permit. Hope you will consider visiting next time you are Florida bound.
