We are from Canada and we rented this apartment from January 16th to February 28th 2012. We found the

apartment very comfortable, the setting very beauiful, right on the lake and the grounds resemble a park.

It was enjoyable to pick a fresh grapefruit every morning. We made daily use of the walkway around Lake Gertrude and found the local residents very friendly.

Mount Dora is a unique town within walking distance of the house. Food Stores and other shops are close by.

We will be returning next February for a month.
