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.

Great Rental Property!
We stayed in this home during a weekend visit to Lakeland. The home was very comfortable and we didn't lack for anything. The owner had everything we could have needed or wanted already there! We enjoyed the lake, although we didn't have an opportunity to paddleboard, which were included, and also the recumbent bikes. A great walking/running track was close by as well. Will definitely be staying here again when we visit Lakeland again.
We were so pleased to have these people stay in our home. They were thoughtful and delightful in every way. It will be our pleasure to welcome them on any future return trips to our area, and next time we hope a third brother is able to join them for their adventures. How nice it is to have such a great experience with guests. These are five star guests without hesitation.
Everything from the amazing screened in porch to the large two head walk in shower was a treat! Not to mention the lake access! We found ourselves exactly where we wanted to be, With just 20 minutes from Disney, 90 minutes from Kennedy Space Center and an hour from Clearwater Beach we were able to do everything we wanted and enjoy those relaxing days at the house! Oh! And did I mention the owners were extremely tentative and nice, they checked in on us and were very responsive when we had a couple questions about locating a couple things.
All in all this place is a 10/10 and me and my family look forward to visiting again!
-The Bradberry Family
What wonderful hosts and comfortable property! We arrived after a long (1100 mile) drive to find all of the comforts of home and more! Fresh cut flowers, snacks galore and a well-stocked pantry made it easy to settle in to this peaceful home before beginning our activity-packed week. On any return to this area, this will be our choice of accommodations. Thank you so much for making our week more than we had even hoped or imagined.
Great place to stay!
This house is luxurious and a wonderful place to stay. The bedrooms are large, master bath and walk-in closets are huge, and the kitchen is better than home! The beds are extra comfortable. In fact, we asked the brand name so we can replace our mattress at home. The surroundings are very quiet. We spend most evenings on the large, screened in porch which has a picnic table and plenty of seating. We could see the lake while using the grill. The owners provided snacks and a stocked pantry and refrigerator with lots of basic items. They were very gracious, welcoming and the nicest people you would ever want to meet. We would love to stay there again next spring! We would recommend this to all family and friends. It easily deserves a five star rating!
We are so pleased that we had the honor of hosting you for your time at Sun’n Fun this year. Meeting both of you was a treat for us and we would be delighted to get to see you on your annual Florida “trek”! You treated our home with such care and kindness. We would recommend you as guests to any future hosts wherever your journeys take you!
Relaxing and thoroughly enjoyable
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.
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.
Fabulous property and great owner!
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!!!
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.
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.
