About the Property

Secluded pool terrace entrance to your private living area.

If you desire to escape from the ice and snow then this is the ideal location. I am offering a vacation rental, fully furnished, available for 5 to 6 months during the winter season from November to March/April.

My spacious renovated 800 sq. feet suite includes a bedroom, master bathroom, living room and kitchen with all new appliances, including clothes washer & dryer. The amenities include a private, secluded and spacious landscaped garden with a pool, two patios, outdoor BBQ facilities and a large 14' x 16' covered Gazebo, surrounded with lush landscape and hanging orchids. Although your private living area is a separate apartment to my residence it has a private patio entrance through secured French Doors.

Car: Recommended

Our location is the best in Orlando! Why, because we are approximately 10-12 minutes north of downtown Orlando where the nightlife, restaurants and bars come alive in the evening. Located 5 minutes from Altamonte Springs shopping, this large mall has (Sears, Macys, J.C. Penny, Dillards), AMC Theatres, and dinning. Direct access, 40 to 50 minutes, to all attractions (Disney, Universal, Sea World), and just 45 minutes from the Atlantic coast (Daytona and New Smyrna beaches). Close to everything, but not on top of the traffic and tourists.

Although there are many places to visit, I will focus on two of my favorite destinations, they are Winter Park and Mount Dora. Winter Park, just a five minutes drive to a friendly area, where you can stroll along the main brick lined street with outdoor cafes, bistros and upscale specialty shops and boutiques. On Saturday visit their Farmers Market from 7am to 1pm. And in December enjoy their Annual Holiday Tree Lighting Ceremony in the park.

The village of Mount Dora is a charming, one hundred plus years old historic village. Mount Dora was once famous as 'The Antique Capital'. Mount Dora now boasts a wide variety of retail gift and specialty shops and boutiques and is located just a short 45 minute drive. Special Events include:

*November. Annual Light UP Mount Dora with 2 million sparkling lights in Donnelly Park.

*December. Annual Christmas Parade.

*February. Annual Arts Festival.

*February. 3rd weekend in February, Annual Mount Dora Music Festival.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: Although I graduated from Ft. Lauderdale High School, I am not a true Floridian. I moved to Canada to continue my education and lived in Toronto before returning back to Florida twenty years ago. I missed the sunshine, beautiful weather and the all-year outdoor lifestyle. However, now I miss the sophistication of a big city and the other many amenities, including first class theatres, the wide assortment of fine restaurants, variety of performing arts and The Royal Ontario Museum. As a young senior citizen, I am delighted to have the opportunity to share my home with like minded people.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Enjoy life to the fullest in a place, in Florida, that is know for beautiful weather all year; sunny days and average temperature in the 70's during the winter months. Relax on the deck near the pool and enjoy the privacy provided by a green Podocarpus hedge as it forms a natural privacy background screen for the pool. The pool was resurfaced several years ago with Pebbletech and the reflective aqua blue sky enhances the pool and surrounding area. The outdoor photos were taken in October of this year and this is the fall season for us in Central Florida, although everything is green, many of the flowers have stopped blooming. You can see an occasional Hibiscus, Moonflower, and Morning Glory in blossom during this time of year. This is where I spend as much time as possible and in the summertime I am in the pool on my water float with one cool drink in hand. Unfortunately, during the winter months, it is not economical to have the pool heated.
