Absolutely Fabulous! is how you’ll describe this Luxury Vacation Home and the time your family will have here.

Walt Disney World, Universal Studios, Sea World, the brand new Legoland to name but a few. As well as Busch Gardens, Hard rock Casino, Ybor City & The beautiful beaches of Clearwater, Sarasota or Bradenton.
Being strategically close to Interstate 4 has many advantages, it allows you to choose east or west, depending on your mood, preference or the weather ensuring a flawless vacation. Several Grocery and pharmacy stores conveniently located just minutes from the home, as well as major restaurants all within your reach.

Darlington Hall truly is a home like no other. Custom built in 2002 with specially insulated solid concrete walls & siding creates a peacefully quiet interior.

The split floor plan with volume ceilings at 10-12’ and eight foot tall doors looks and feels more like a castle, and easily accommodates your family and more. Perfectly set up, everything is fully furnished, with nicely appointed formal dining, and living rooms. The family room is large, and center to the home and is complete with fireplace and surround sound system .There are even special hall pocket doors close off bedrooms to allow extra privacy in gathering areas.

Darlington hall is even your office away from it all. A private grand side entrance door from the drive into the den that’s equipped with lovely desk, phone, computer, laser printer, fax in case business just won’t let you go anywhere.

Pool Heating Options: First, The pool is equipped with an oversized solar heating system mounted on the roof that absorbs the intense central Florida sunlight and heats the water. Depending on the time of year, this will raise the pool temperature to approx 15 degrees above the current air temps.
Secondly, there is an additional electric heat pump that is also available. It is in-line with the solar and takes heat from the outside air temp and adds it to the water. It’s efficient with warm air temps and the cost is $35.00 per day for usage.
Lastly, there is a gas pool heater as well, in line with the solar, and the electric, designed to work in concert together with the other heating systems. All three working can raise pool temp to spa temps greater that 102 if desired. There is an additional 300.00 deposit for the gas, it is supplied from a tank on the property which is full when you arrive, once you leave its refilled and the bill is deducted from your deposit or billed to you if the balance is greater.

BBQ Grill: You can enjoy simplistic bbq 'ing with ease right on the lanai with the TEC infrared grill. This grill heats to 1500 degrees in 2 minutes and can sear the flavor of your favorite dishes quick. Just bring your steaks, hot dogs and hamburgers and you can enjoy some grilling.

Smoking policy: Smoking of Cigars and cigarettes are strictly & absolutely prohibited indoors of Darlington hall.
You can however, enjoy smoking cigars or cigarettes in the designated outdoor porch areas of the Lanai/pool patio, front sitting porch, or side entry porch. This is an allergy free home that has never been smoked in and any violation of these rules will result in an additional cleaning charge.
