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.

amazing beyond belief
Everything about our stay at this property was amazing. The owners interaction was over the top. They went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. It was the cleanest rental I have ever stayed in. The beds were really comfortable, the kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed to cook for our family. The back porch was one of our favorite features of the home. It is a huge screened in porch with lots of seating, overlooking the lake with lots of trees. The home is located in a nice neighborhood great for walking and riding bikes. We definitely plan on staying here again.
Christina, Thank you very much for that kind review of our home. We are grateful you felt welcome and cared for. We so appreciate the care you took of our home and will look forward to welcoming you and your family again on any occasion our home suits your needs. We are so glad it worked out well for you this visit. Hope to see you again soon.
This is a beautifully comfortable home in a quiet neighbourhood completely outfitted and tastefully decorated. I rented it for friends from Brazil and they could not believe that the owners had not just left there. It was perfect in every way and Dellynne is the perfect host. So attentive and provided extra breakfast items that I did not have time to provide. They have kayaks, bicycles, bbq and a water volleyball court in one of the best lakes in Polk County. I am so pleased to have discovered this home and will definitely rebook!
We are so delighted to have made the acquaintance of this renter. What a wonderful experience we were able to have with her and with her guests. When our guests turn out to be people we would love to have as friends, it is more than gratifying for us, and it adds an exclamation point to our pleasure in being able to provide this home to short or long term guests. This renter is one of those wonderful people, and we hope we have many opportunities to serve and enjoy her. Thank you HomeAway/VRBO for making all this possible.
You won’t be disappointed!
Wow. Did we feel spoiled! Thank you so much for the wonderful hospitality. This little gem was a great find. After panicking to find a place to stay for the Ironman in Haines City, this was perfect! Thank you Dellynne for everything that you provided. Our cup runneth over...
What delightful guests to have in our home. The communication with this group was so pleasant, and we felt how nice it would be to have these people as new friends.
Their departure was early in the morning, and yet they managed to leave the home very nearly ready for our next guests. We consider it a privilege that we were able to host them for their visit to our area. Any future home owners who are able to welcome them will be so glad they did. Five star guests in every category!
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!

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.
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.
