Space 1,040 sq. ft.

About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

This remodeled Sebring duplex has new appliances, bathrooms, floors, furniture and more. This apartment is fully furnished and is located on a quiet dead end street. It is conveniently located off of US Hwy 27, just one mile south of town, and easy to find.

Sebring is located in Highlands County. Here in the center of the Sunshine State, you’ll find crystal clear lakes for fishing, boating, skiing and sailing, and more than a dozen golf courses that will suit your skills and challenge level.

Our gently rolling hills, orange groves and charming small town make this a relaxing country getaway – and our central location provides easy access to Florida’s best attractions without the hustle and high prices of the major tourist areas.

It’s the best of both worlds – 90 minutes to Disney, Sea World, or Universal Studios in Orlando, and less than 2 hours to Busch Gardens in Tampa, or Lion Country Safari and the Atlantic beaches in West Palm Beach. However, removed enough for that “get away from it all” feeling. Come discover Highlands County for yourself!

Highlands County is home to Highlands Hammock State Park, Sebring International Raceway, 80 lakes. Historic downtown Sebring has numerous shops and restaurants, while the other side of the lake has a mall, shopping centers, theaters and more places to eat, and over 125 houses of worship.

Come and have fun in central Florida!

About The Owner

We camped one year in Highlands Hammock State Park and fell in love with the Sebring area. It has everything you could want and need without the fast pace of the major tourist towns. When we got the opportunity we decided to purchase there so we would have a place to get away and relax with our two children. It is conveniently located in the middle of everything you may want to visit. We gutted and remodeled everything inside, hoping someday to retire there. I'm sure you will enjoy it also. Fred.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2003

What makes this apartment unique

Be sure and get tickets for the nature tram ride inside Highlands Hammock State Park. It is the only way to get to see some of the wonders of Florida. We also enjoy walking the nature trails (they are not too long). I've always seen at least one, if not more alligators and other wildlife.

Clean, comfortable, and well located duplex.

  • 4 of 5

This place met all of our expectations and we would certainly consider staying here again. It was quite clean and for the most part had comfortable furniture. The kitchen was pretty good although the appliances were old and there was no dishwasher. The best aspect of this place was the location. It is on the south side of Sebring and pretty close to our kids and grandkids, the reason for our stay. The owner was quite responsive when contacted.

Owner's Response: Thank you Emily for your review of our apartment. This past month, just like every November since we started renting seasonally, we made the trip to Sebring to get the duplex ready for the “Season”. We pressure cleaned the patios and walkways, replaced pillows, sheet sets, towels, and the coffee maker that was showing signs of wear. We of course cleaned the apartments from top to bottom, and washed everything that needed it. When the kitchen was remodeled we did make it bigger; however, there still was not enough room to put in a dish washer. During the “Season” guest are arriving anywhere from 4 to 24 hours after the previous ones have left. That is why we request the apartments be left in the same condition as they were found, ready for the next quest. This keeps us from having to rely on someone to clean them, and from having to charge for cleaning, and we can refund the deposits in full. Each year we hold about half of the deposits for our guest that plan on returning the following year. Glad you enjoyed your stay, Fred.

Charming House in a Quiet Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

My family and I needed to travel to Sebring under somber circumstances – to attend a funeral of a family member who had passed unexpectedly. Fred allowed us to rent his clean, fully-equipped and well-maintained house on very short notice and showed deep compassion and sympathy for our loss. I recommend this house not just because of the amenities but also because of the owner’s innately kind disposition.

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

This rental was modern, clean and well appointed with everything you would need to have a great vacation.

We really enjoyed the privacy of the back yard for sitting, barbequing and bird watching.

Everything you would need is within a 10 minute drive and there is a gas station/convenience store within close walking distance if you need something and don't feel like driving.

There are plenty of cheap golf courses around, unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on how you look at it) we are not golfers so trips to Orlando attractions or the Gulf coast beaches can be a full day trip as the roads out of Sebring have lots of stop lights to slow you down.

However, if you plan on staying put in the Sebring area or if you don't mind the day trip to get to the beaches or Orlando attractions, this house and the location is perfect and I would certainly recommend it to my friends, especially the golfers.

Owner's Response: This has been another great rental season. I remember what my son said on a trip to check on the apartments this year. "Dad, both side are perfect, we don't have to clean anything" (he is 13)! We have been blessed every year to meet the nicest people who enjoy the Sebring area as much as we do, and leave the place better than they found it. A warm Thank You to everyone, from Fred and Seth.

Great area for golfers

  • 5 of 5

We spent the month of January. The homey environment is exactly like the pictures and was clean and well-maintained. The owner installed wi-fi early in the month which was extremely nice so we could read e-mail and use the internet. The kitchen is very well equipped and we enjoyed preparing many meat/seafood meals on the gas grill. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone needing a place to stay in Sebring.

My husband and I are avid golfers and were delighted to find so many courses to play and how reasonable the price to play a round. In addition, I enjoyed daily walks beside the orange groves and going to the local flea markets. But our favorite pasttime in Sebring was enjoying a beer on the deck overlooking the lake at the Sunset Grille. It was so relaxing after a game of golf!

For outings, we drove to Lake Wales and enjoyed several hours at the Bok Tower Gardens, explored Okeechobee, enjoyed the many murals at Lake Placid and spent an afternoon driving along the ocean near Bradenton and Sarasota. As we left the area, we stopped in Orlando and went to Epcot.
