About Amy L Kingham
I am a Realtor and my fiance, Mark, is a Licensed Contractor. We love art, architecture, travel, entertaining and renovation "projects". Mark is from New Zealand (thus the "Kiwi Cabana") and I grew up in Orlando. He bought the property 8 years ago. We spent 3 years renovating the main house and built The Cabana in 2015 as an addition to the property during the process. We have a special place in our hearts for this property, the Audubon Park Garden District, and the wonderful birds, ducks, and squirrels that live here. . .and we hope you will too after staying in our cute Kiwi Cabana!
Amy L Kingham purchased this Guest House in 2015
Why Amy L Kingham chose Audubon Park
Beautiful and serene lakefront with canopy of live oaks and fantastic bird/duck watching. Location can't be beat.
What makes this Guest House unique
We love living on the water! We feel blessed to be able to enjoy the sun shimmering off the water in the morning, the fascinating birdlife, and the gorgeous Florida sunsets every evening. This is a little piece of heaven and incredibly serene for being located only 15 minutes from Downtown Orlando. Lake Shannon is spring-fed and is one of the Top 10 cleanest lakes in Central Florida. The lake is on the smaller side so motorized vehicles are not allowed which ensures things are reliably quiet. The location and big, beautiful oak trees on the property were also a huge draw for us. And did I mention that there is an excellent view of rocket and shuttle launches at Cape Canaveral and Fourth of July Fireworks from the patio?!

Beautiful, serene home!
Lovely property and owners were delightful as well.
Loved hosting Adam! He was quiet, clean, and friendly. Appreciate the nice review and hope you'll stay with us again.
Amy’s lakefront home was absolutely beautiful. Before the stay she made sure that we had everything that we needed. My boyfriend and I were in Orlando for the weekend and she let me know exactly where to purchase cupcakes and cakes for him on his birthday. When we arrived, she placed a greeting board in the entrance which greeted us by name, also wishing my boyfriend a happy birthday. The cabana had the latest electronics. Outside we watched the sunset and listened to music as the fire pit blazed in the twilight.
This stayed was both amazing and romantic.
Thank you Amy!
We are so happy that you chose our Cabana for your romantic weekend celebration! You are the cutest couple and we'd love to have you stay with us again. . .maybe he can surprise you for YOUR birthday?!
Thanks for the lovely review. : )
Owners: Communicative and organized, but not obtrusive
Property Type: Quiet/Romantic
Property Cleanliness: perfect
Property Level: Well Appointed, well maintained
This property was very comfortable and had everything that Annie and i needed! Several interesting restaurants are within walking distance, for example, Redlight Redlight (a local brewpub), Domu (a Ramen House - try the pineapple cider!), Kelly's Homemade Ice Cream (they have an ice cream flight!).
The location was convenient for us, nicely set off a bit from the Orlando Theme Parks (we visited Universal and Uber'd [25minutes]: it was between $20/30 per trip, but we felt that it was the right choice to avoid parking headaches :P)
The property guide was extremely helpful with an "i want to..." format that made everything easy.
Would return to this property!
We loved having Greg and Annie. They were sweet, quiet and clean. Would welcome them back anytime. Appreciate the very nice review too!
Lovely property, great host!
Amy is a great host! Before our arrival she shared all the important details of the property so everything was crystal clear. Out stay at the Cabana was awesome! We found everything in perfect condition, extremely clean and with all the appliances and commodities you may need - and more! . We stayed for a week and we had great views to the lake, a peaceful rest - with no sounds at all. Location is perfect, not to far away from the fun but enough to avoid crowds in high season! Just a 10 min drive away from Winter Park! We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to spend a great time in Orlando.
Beautiful and immaculate
The Kiwi Cabana was beautiful and immaculate! We chose to stay here because of the lake-front view, but were also pleased with the beauty inside this little gem. The love that Amy and Mark have for this place is apparent in all the details that made this place feel like a home away from home. The towels and bedding were luxurious, the kitchen was stocked with all we needed, the furnishings were tasteful, coffee supplies were plentiful, etc., etc. Again I need to say how clean the Cabana was. The seating area facing the lake was perfect. The breeze off the lake was wonderful and the yard/landscaping were pristine. We did not have a chance to meet Mark, but Amy was delightful and a perfect hostess. Such a pleasure. We would definitely stay here again for our next visit to Orlando. Amy, the only thing I can think of as an improvement would be to add a full-length mirror, perhaps on the inside of the wardrobe closet door. Thank you again for your hospitality! Dawn
It was an honor to host you. Special thanks for the glowing review! Mark and I have spent many hours planning and preparing in hopes that wonderful guests like YOU would appreciate and enjoy it the way that we do. Thank you for the great suggestion to add a full-length mirror. Ironically, I purchased one to add to the inside of the closet door just a few days ago and haven't had the chance to install as we had other guests check in same day you checked out. Sorry we didn't have the foresight before your visit. Please come back and see us again soon (and enjoy a full-length view)! : )
