About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Old florida is what you will find at our lakefront property, scrub oaks, pines and palmettos surround us on one side and Tiger Lake on the other. You will step back to a different time here. On our front porch you can relax in the adirondack chairs or the swing bed and watch the sunset or an eagle resting on the boathouse. It is not unusual to see a flock of turkeys passing through the yard. You can swim or fish off our dock(depending on the time of year for bass or brim)and sandy beach. If you want to lauch a boat, Tiger camp is just down the road.

We have four bedrooms and 2.5 baths. The master is downstairs and wheelchair accessible. There is a king bed downstairs and full bath. Upstairs are three bedrooms with queen beds and a full bath. Also another half bath downstairs. There is a lanai located off the full kitchen and a stoned firepit. Parking is available off the lanai. Our home sets on five acres, the property is long and narrow. Our lake is Airboat friendly.

Lake Kissimmee along with several other lakes are accessible from

Tiger Lake by way of Tiger Creek. We are about 20 minutes from Lake Wales and you will find many excellent restaurants there. Bok Tower Gardens is also located in Lake Wales. We are just 90 minutes from Orlando and an hour from Vero Beach.

Peaceful Retreat away from the concrete jungle

  • 5 of 5

This lake house was the perfect getaway for us, as we hardly get to relax and enjoy country living. The house is located on a private road, away from all street noise, just sounds coming from the birds and wild life. The property is stocked will all the necessary cooking items you may need. The host answered all our questions, and was very accommodating. The dock is wonderful, equipped with lights and a stereo. The screened in porch was just great to hang out in and enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning, and a glass of wine in the afternoon. Overall, the house was very comfortable and spacious.

Gorgeous Lake Front Home

  • 5 of 5

Mu husband and I just returned from a three day stay at this gorgeous lake front home. From the moment we walked in we knew this was going to be a very wonderful getaway. Although the home has many rooms we found it to be very cozy. The home has anything you will need for the perfect vacation. The kitchen is well stocked with many pots, pans and lots of extras!! It was nice having the outside grills to cook on. There is a large back patio that has many tables. The outside fire pit is nice to sit and enjoy in the evening. We stayed in the master bedroom downstairs. The king size bed was the most comfortable bed we have ever slept in. All rooms are beautifully decorated We spent most of our time outside where the view will take you away!! The bed swing on the porch is the perfect place for a afternoon nap. The boat hook up on the covered dock was nice to have since it rained one day. We fished mainly in Tiger Lake however, there are canals that will take you to other surrounding lakes. The fishing was great during our stay. Peggy, the owner, was very kind and great to work with. We are already planning our next visit to this hidden paradise!!!

Paradise In Central Florida

  • 5 of 5

We rented this lake house for the month of February 2013. What a beautiul place. I am an avid golfer and fisherman and I really fell in love with this area. Golfed many times at Lake Wales Counry Club for a very reasonable price and fished almost everyday either in Tiger Lake or Lake Kissimmee (there is a navigable creek separating the two lakes). We had a bass boat for some of the time, but we caught most of our fish right off the dock (Bass, Brim, Chain Pickerel, Bowfin, Blue Cat, Gar, and even a couple of very large turtles).

The house itself was fantastic (clean, well maintained,and the kitchen had everything you could possibly need in cooking utensils). We had company almost every week and there was plenty of room for everyone. Bedrooms were large (especialy the master) and very comfortable. The grounds were amazing, with wildlife everywhere - we saw Bald Eagles almost every day. Pictures do not do this place justice and very peaceful except for the occasional airboat, which are interestig machines. My wife and friends really enjoyed relaxing/reading on the screened in porch (and watching the Gecko's at play).

The only thing that would have made our stay better would be WiFi - but we knew this going in. Thanks Peggy for letting us stay in your "paradise". I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a getaway from the cold in the Northeast. We will be back.

Guys Weekend a Success!

  • 5 of 5

A home and owner like this is what VRBO is really all about!!! Thanks Peggy.

I was looking for a peaceful spot for two dudes to relax. Rented this house for my boyfriend & his friend who went to the auto races in Sebring. We are big fans of VRBO and seek out unique spots for an above average experience. This nice home far exceeded our expectations. It was removed from the bustle of tourist areas, yet close to town and easy to access.The guys really liked hanging out on the dock, grilling steaks,seeing the sunset, yet still being able to go to their seperate ends of the house to sleep (sans hearing the other's snores or toilet flushes.) They said the quiet was unbelieveable and after the noise of the racecars all day, such a welcome retreat. Driving through the many smaller lakes & orange groves to & from the house was also great. The owner was pleasant, helpful & communicative, especially considering it was a third party transaction. I am just sorry that I stayed home, they spoke so highly of their time here! We intend to return and make up for it, as it's definitely not the typical Florida experience.
