About Margaret

I am an Interior designer/ architect and I love to travel. I have lived in many great cities (NYC, Aspen, Miami, and LA) and I always come back here. I use VRBO wherever I go. It's the greatest way to really get to know how the locals live, find the best restaurants, and enjoy walking communities.

Margaret purchased this bungalow in 2004

Why Margaret chose Northeast

Orlando is a great city. I grew up here. Whenever I leave Orlando, I am reminded of the great weather, interesting people, and ease of living here. You can walk/bike/ uber everywhere and there is always something interesting going on.

What makes this bungalow unique

Great local neighborhood vibe! Walk to dining, shopping, boutiques, Sunday farmer's market, and events around Lake Eola. With close proximity (5-minute Uber or rickshaw/ 10-minute walk) to Downtown Orlando, Performing Arts Center, Amway Arena, and movie theaters. 30-45 minutes to the Beach, Disney Area & Theme Parks & Convention Center.

The house was beautiful .... the pictures did not do it justice.

  • 5 of 5

I'm local to Orlando so I picked this property based on style & location. My bridesmaids & I used the house to get ready in the morning of my wedding. I loved the decor and it just happened to match my wedding colors perfectly. It was relaxing & comfortable. We spent the weekend at the house as newlyweds and I felt like we were in a home away from home. Such a great find!!! Highly recommend staying here!

Beautiful Home in the Best Area of Orlando!

  • 5 of 5

This is an absolutely stunning home in the heart of Orlando's best neighborhood, Thornton Park! The bungalow has a ton of old character with beautiful updates throughout. Margaret's interior design really brings out all of this homes charm. 2 bedrooms with comfortable beds/linens, 1 bathroom, nice size fully equipped kitchen, large dining and living room. The home is right off the main street through Thornton Park but it's still very quiet. Just a few blocks away are some really great restaurants and bars. Lake Eola is just a few blocks further and has a beautiful park & multi use trail. Walk a little further (or Uber) to the heart of downtown Orlando! I grew up in Orlando is this is by far my favorite location. Don't pass up a chance to stay in this beautiful Thornton Park Bungalow!

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

The home was one of the most beautifully decorated homes Ive have stayed in with VRBO. The location was perfect. I walked to get my juice, run around Lake Eola, close to great sushi, the list goes on.

The owner was very responsive and helpful.

I brought my dog-who also loved it...which really is the most important:)

Fantastic spacious home

  • 5 of 5

A really lovely and spacious home. Very comfortable with all amenities available indoors. The area is off the tourist trail and the locals are very friendly, which made for a quiet and peaceful base after our busy days at the Disney, Universal and Discovery Parks. We have been lucky enough to stay for three weeks and have all thoroughly enjoyed being here in such a lovely and welcoming home. Thank you so much Margaret for making our stay so wonderful and memorable. I would love to come back again and will certainly recommend to my friends and family.
