About Dana Stanley
I am a business owner in Sebring. I bought this home for a ministry of mine, I plan to use in the future, when I retire in a few years called 'A Place for dad'. My mother died unexpectedly and dad was left all alone. That generation the wife played the traditional role of Cook and housekeeper. My father was left alone, with no coping skills. I feel if he had a home to go to where he had a cook and housekeeper and similar friends he would have had more meaning to his life and cherished it more. Until I have the time to make my dream come true, I want to share this Blessings with others who will respect and love it like myself. I hope it will bring many fond memories to those who enter.
Dana Stanley purchased this House in 2013
Why Dana Stanley chose Sylvan Shores
This property exudes Peace and joy. Lake Placid is a #1 place of retirement. I spent 6 months redecorating a '70's house with Love. It has brought me much healing in a time of difficulty . I love this house, too big for just me, so Ill gladly share so others can enjoy my blessing. Perfect for a family reunion, WEDDINGS.. Eventually I will retire in this home.
What makes this House unique
As soon as you turn into the driveway a beautiful yellow dogwood was in full bloom. Beautiful moss filled oak trees blow lightly in the breeze with the red brick home behind the split rail fence, laid out so nicely in the mist of them. Single story from the front of home, you walk in and immediate see the spectacular view of the lake thru the large sliding glass windows. Hard wood floors, cool painted walls, and an inviting presence. Lots of light and character. The layout of the back yard is unique with spit levels, a stairway down to the dock and a rope guardrail. The osprey gather in 3 trees around the lake and I watch them fish for their breakfast and lunch daily. A group of raccoons play in the tree outside the bedroom window at night sometimes. An owl perches on the rail while turtles sunbathe on the shore. Fish actually follow you around on the kayak. The spring fed water is perfect for swimming or floating in your raft! No gas motors allowed. ( 2 lakes with in 1 mile for gas motor boats, can park here in extra lot).Very close to all local hot spots. Many sleeping arrangement's can be made with placement of furniture. Large game room downstairs. Pool table, ping pong and darts.

awesome five days and nights in Paradise
I'm a fulltime Pastor and director of a very active Ministry. I'm in a wheelchair and require a caregiver to. Accompany me.I needed a place of peace, privacy, relaxation, to unwind And be refreshed. I found all and more.I stayed for 5 days first time and 3 the next time I'm looking forward to another getaway soon.Awesome experience.I would recommend it to anyone looking for Beautiful Florida lake experience. Thank you Dana.
This was my first experience through VRBO. I wanted to rent a house for our extended family to attend a family reunion. Timing wasn't good for us as my father was ill and then he passed just before our trip. I was a bit nervous about finding the right accommodations. I definitely wanted a lake house and wanted to be able to take our dog.
Dana was easy to deal with and even left a welcoming message. The home was very clean upon our arrival. The rooms are quite spacious. We especially liked the back porches overlooking the lake. The sunrises are worth getting up for. They are beautiful!
We had to do some baking for the reunion and we found the kitchen to be well equipped.
We didn't get a chance to use the boats. I did see some neighbors paddle boarding, so bring yours.
The owner does have it decorated in a cozy manner. Expected "homey", not contemporary. It's for families to have space to relax and enjoy.
It was such a pleasure having you, I am so sorry it was at a difficult time for you and your family. Prayers of comfort to you all. Please come back, you and your fur-baby are always welcome!
