About Gary and Kelly (husband and wife)
We moved to Florida to ski year round and have never regretted this decision. After renting for several years on local lakes to search for our dream community - we found it in Montverde! The quiet small village and lake community with surrounding hills and countryside were just what we were looking for after long work days. The hills and local bike trails are perfect for cross-training. We are also avid divers -- basically, if we're not working we're in the water! Gary is a Realtor, so he'd love to help you find YOUR dream home too! We're health nuts! We're both dedicated to healthy living -we have to, to continue to enjoy watersking at our "advanced ages." With the recent pandemic, we strive to stay healthy not just to ski, but because we're also scuba divers. The recent virus can cause irreparable damage to lungs which will put an end to diving. So, we're striving not just to keep your stay healthy, but we're doing EVERYTHING we can to avoid getting sick ourselves. We feel relatively fortunate to live on a lake where we can easily isolate, social distance, yet have fun each day!
Why Gary and Kelly (husband and wife) chose Montverde
Why is this property special? Undoubtedly because of the lake, watersports and fishing - but not to discount the fact that the cottage is walking distance to Internationally acclaimed Montverde Academy and local golfing, biking, Disney/Universal etc. attractions. Direct access to a spring-fed lake means your vacation starts in your backyard! Kayaking, paddleboarding, canoeing, fishing out your backdoor. There's also world class golfing nearby as well as several new restaurants in Montverde - Cal's Kitchen (gourmet pizza), BBQ, and ice-cream shop and Blackbear - Cuban sandwiches and more! Seeing as Montverde is just a little village, we feel blessed to have so many choices. Nearby Clermont/Minneola has lakeside dining (we love the Minneola Tiki Bar for sunsets) as well as several new breweries and a couple new Mexican restaurants (we're talking old town Clermont) and of course the regular chain restaurants in the business area.
What makes this Cottage unique
CLEANING PROTOCOL Owner is a Registered Nurse. This means I bring a high level of respect for antiseptic fastidiousness to cleaning our cottage for our guests: we sanitize / wipe down of ALL surfaces (since it is a small house it is easy to promise and do a real thorough cleaning) - everything you can imagine - fan pulls; hooks, blind rods, you name it; and Lysol upholstered furniture - but except for the couch and coverlets, all other fabrics are Sunbrella and safe to wipe down with disinfectant. We have sanitizing washer AND dryer - so washing all bedding each time. We have 2-3 sets of EVERYTHING - bedding, shower curtains, bathmat, shower liners --so they are washed and swapped out between guests. NEW PROTOCOL: We used to keep tons of towels stored at the cottage (it's a lake, you'll use lots of towels). We still make sure you have plenty of towels but there's also the in-unit sanitizing washer/dryer are at your disposal to wash towels/sheets on your own between uses.
