Why David chose Winter Garden

As a competitive water skier we had been vacationing in this area for several years. we enjoyed it so much we decided to purchase a second home here. We enjoy the convenience of nearby shopping and entertainment while being in the capital of waterskiing Orlando. We walk outside our door and right to the boat house and ski!

This is a quiet residential area, but the excitement and fantasy world of the Theme Parks are close by.

Orlando is a wonderful town with plenty of shopping, restaurants, and entertainment. Easy living!

Unforgettable stay

  • 5 of 5

Hands down one of our best vacation rentals!

The view is stunning and we loved having all of the land for our dogs to run around and play in. The property is clean and had everything we needed. The neighborhood is beautiful and conveniently located. David was a fantastic host - very accommodating and timely. We will definitely be back!

Exceptional rental in central Florida

  • 5 of 5

This home exceeded our expectations. All amenities are as advertised. Great location, quiet, close to shopping, restaurants and theme parks.

If you enjoy fishing bring your rods, great bass fishing right of the dock. We spent many evenings relaxing on the dock catching 4 pounders.

The home owner is great to work with, extremely professional and responsive.

Our family stayed for 3 weeks and we were sad to leave.

I recommend this property to anyone looking to have a relaxing time in the Orlando area. I would rent this home again.

A stay to rememeber

  • 5 of 5

Wow! This is a vacation home that will be in my treasure box of fantastic memories. The house is exactly what shows in the pictures and beyond. Our family (6 adults and 3 children) spent the the last 2 weeks in December 2016 and we had a perfect time. The house is so clean and had so much space. We barbecued, we played in the pool, we even fished on the deck. We can't find words to thank David for his kindness and for accommodating all our needs. It was hard to leave but we will come back.

Thanks again David and we hope to see you soon.

Wonderful house and location!

  • 5 of 5

Sunset Lakes is a quiet, residential community in Winter Garden. Convenient to shopping, restaurants, highways and all Orlando attractions. Long driveway, very private to the neighborhood, large yard and surrounded by the lake on 2 sides to watch awesome sunsets. Enjoyed seeing the different birds that would come by and even had a Bald Eagle land in the lawn. House is very comfortable with plenty of room. We stayed in this house for 7 weeks, with our dogs, and we were a bit sad to leave. This is the perfect home for a Florida vacation!

It was a pleasure to meet you David!

Wonderful, peaceful, quiet

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for privacy, and still want to be near everything, this is the place for you! It was an easy walk to Winter Garden Village, a shopping area with 15 or so restaurants, and lots of shops! It was a 20-25 minute to Downtown Disney, and 30 minutes to Orlando. Also, less than an hour drive to Lakeland, to watch the Detroit Tigers in their spring training games.

The house is set way back off the road, so it seems like you're not in a neighborhood, but some secluded area. Walking the neighborhood was easy to do, and everyone was very friendly and waved or said hi. Even the teenagers! It is a great area.

We've rented in several Florida locations over the years, including Punta Gorda, Cape Coral, and Marco Island. This was the best area for stuff to do, and had the lowest price for golfing. There were plenty of golf courses in the area to pick from. We also loved the fact that there was a screen door off the sliding Master Bedroom sliding doors. We like the A/C off whenever possible, and we could leave the glass doors open at night and get a nice breeze in the bedroom.

The covered patio area was great and a good size. We could sit out in the rain playing cards or games and stay dry.

The kitchen appliances are in need of upgrading. It took forever to pre-heat the oven. However, we only cooked a few times in 6 weeks so it didn't matter much for us. There were too many great restaurants to pick from. Mimi's was our favorite and we ate there 1-2 times a week.

Downtown Winter Garden was about a 15 minute drive away. It's a great town to walk around in with more great places for eating, indoors and out. We loved Urban Flats and went there several times, too.

I would highly recommend this house. You can't go wrong!

Dave was wonderful to deal with and is a super nice guy. He always made sure everything was ok, and would check in with us to make sure.
