I am an Interior designer/ architect and I love to travel. I have lived in many great cities (NYC, Aspen, Miami, and LA) and I always come back here. I use VRBO wherever I go. It's the greatest way to really get to know how the locals live, find the best restaurants, and explore original walking communities.
Margaret purchased this Guest House in 2004
Why Margaret chose Northeast Orlando
Orlando is a great city. I grew up here. Whenever I leave Orlando, I am reminded of the great weather and ease of living here. I can walk everywhere and there is always something interesting going on.
What makes this Guest House unique
Great local neighborhood vibe! Walk to dining, shopping, boutiques, and Sunday farmer's market. Enjoy the close proximity to Lake Eola, Downtown Orlando, Amway center, Performing Arts Center & movie theaters. 30-45 minutes to the Beach, Disney Area & Theme Parks & Convention Center.

A lovely and quiet neighborhood; walking/biking distance to lovely lakes and quaint restaurants. I had never experienced Orlando this way.
The apartment is great for two people - in the end I was glad that a 3rd family member had not joined us (it would have been a tight fit as we are all tall people). The galley kitchen is modern and spacious. I had hoped to enjoy a long soak in a bathtub... but the stopper didn't work, so it required showering instead. Margaret was helpful trying to solve the problem; hopefully that can be resolved for future guests.
Cozy and central location, perfect for two
The property is cozy and very central if wanting to stay near downtown Orlando. The neighborhood is very nice and close to restaurants, cafes and shops. Also very close to Lake Eola where one can go for a walk or exercise.
Super cute property! Loved the style and location!
We stayed for four days and were out and about for most of the days but coming "home" at night was great. Full kitchen with new appliances and most of what you need was great. Bed and pillows were super comfortable and it was nice having access to laundry if we needed it. We really enjoyed staying here and look forward to staying again when we're in town! Margaret was attentive and very helpful! Great place to stay!
Thorton Park is a great place to live. Walking distance to great bars & restaurants and Sunday Farmers Market at Lake Eola. House is great for 2 - more would be tight. Street parking was never an issue. Quiet home with easy access to all of downtown Orlando.
Great small space-ideal for two.
Wonderful neighborhood-attentive host
Hard to find Gem in great location.
We stayed 13 days at this location. The house was perfect for the two of us. Walking distance to great food, groceries and eclectic area. Given the location the property is still very private and quiet. The bed was the most comfortable mattress we had ever slept on, even asked for the brand so we could purchase the same mattress.
The owner Margaret was very prompt with any questions or needs we had. We hope to stay here annually.
Thank you so much, you are always welcome.
2 blocks from restaurants, shopping, Starbucks, Lake Eola, outdoor cafes. Take the rickshaws/ uber to Amway Arena, Downtown. Near I-4/ and the 408 expressway. Easy driving to all the attractions, but I recommend staying in Thornton Park.
