Relaxed stay

  • 5 of 5

Needed a relaxed few days after touring Georgia & South Carolina for 18 days. Stayed at Anne & Max's horse farm on way back to Orlando airport. Good suite with plenty of room and everything you could need. Quiet and peaceful with horses, dogs, peacocks and chicken to keep you amused and company. Anne & Max were great hosts, there if you needed and left you alone when it suited. Will stay again if in area

Peaceful, serine with a beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

We were greeted upon our arrival by Max & Anne. The apartment was just as pictured. Had everything we needed. The atmosphere of the farm was absolutely tranquil. I loved petting the horses & watching them graze in the fields. The pool was the perfect temperature & quite relaxing. There are plenty of parks with natural springs to cool off from the Florida heat. I would definitely stay her again. Thanks for a lovely vacation spot to call home for a few days.

Staying on a Farm!

  • 4 of 5

The owners were very nice and friendly. I think they live in the next unit. They were very welcoming. It was very peaceful to sit out at the patio table at night and in the morning. The a/c worked wonderful. There were 2 TVs. The unit had everything - washer/dryer, dishwasher, blankets, paper towels, blow dryer, pots and pans - plenty of bath towels. They even had a basket with coffee and tea. Very thoughtful. I did not see any soap (but we brought soap) so no issue. The farm was not difficult to find. It had a kitchen, living room, big bedroom and bathroom with spa tub and a shower. I believe they have a pool - although we did not use it.

The only complaint I had is we upgraded our rental car and rented a very expensive car , to use during our visit. I am a dog lover and am fine with all types of dogs. They actually rescue dogs and had a foster. Very commendable and shows their true love of animals. Their dogs were very friendly and sweet, (ran over to greet us/welcome us) although they did jump on the car a couple times. I was very afraid they would damage it with their claws. Luckily no damage was done - the car we rented was black and very expensive - I would hate to have to pay for damage done by someone else's dogs.

That was the only negative, but it could have been a big deal and a real problem - if the rental car got damaged. Perhaps the visitor parking could somehow be closed off from the dogs? Not sure how it could be resolved.

Beautiful Florida Horse Farm!

  • 5 of 5

Staying on a horse farm is a different side of Florida that most people never get to see. Florida is much more than beaches and theme parks. If you are adventurous and are willing to step off the beaten path, please stay at this beautiful farm. I am sad to say that we had to cut our visit here short. One of our dogs who is elderly and not in the best health took a turn on the first night, we had to rush him to an emergency hospital near our home. Happy to say that after a stay there at the hospital, he survived. The owners at the farm were very understanding and I do appreciate the kind consideration. I hope one day to have an opportunity to return under better circumstances and really have the time to relax and explore in this lovely, quiet, serene place. Thank you for everything!
