About Linda and Mike Harris

My husband and I spend 2-3 months a year here at least. We love the area. We love all of the theme parks. Bush Gardens is a special treat that is often over-looked by those visiting Orlando, but it is only about an hour from the villa and well worth the visit, especially if you have older children that enjoy thrill rides. If you go be sure to try the Zambia Smokehouse and the pretzels at the Twisted Tails (right next to Falcons Fury)

We also love to golf. We live on a course at home and surprisingly we spend little time golfing here because there is so much to do. Our favorite close course is Kings Ridge. There many other nice courses though in the area.

The fishing is fabulous and we love it, but biking is our true love here. Our favorite is the West Orange trail.

Linda and Mike Harris purchased this villa in 2005

Why Linda and Mike Harris chose Clermont

We chose the Clermont area because it is a quiet, rural area away from the commercial development along 192, yet still within 20 minutes driving distance of the Disney gates.

We were also looking for a pool that faced southeast, so that we got the warming sun in the morning, but were out of the direct sun on hot, summer afternoons.

As I mentioned, we stay here for at least 2 months a year and we enjoy a comfortable environment. You will notice things like upgraded, very comfy sheets, pillows and beds in the bedrooms to most spices and many cooking utensils you don't normally find in the kitchen.

Our property manager is right around the corner if you need anything and we are almost always just a phone call away.

What makes this villa unique

I love our south facing pool and large lanai. It becomes my office when I am here. Speaking of office, we have excellent wifi.

We recently added almost $9000 in landscaping and landscape lighting. With that addition and the spa and pool lights, the lanai becomes a beautiful oasis you and your family can enjoy after a long day of vacationing in Central Florida.

We want you to enjoy our home as much as we do!

Guestbook comments from the owner

June 2010 Our trip was wonderful and your property is great! All was as expected. The welcome kit came in VERY handy as we arrived at the house at approximately 2:30 am - shopping was out of the question we were all too tired. The pool was the best for the grandchildren - both of whom learned to swim while in Florida!!! Thank you for fitting us in after our original reservation ran into issue. I would never be able to refer to this situation as an error - perhaps rather a blessing that we stayed at your home. We will highly recommend your property to family and friends.

Guestbook Comment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this wonderful villa early this year and it was one of our best vacation experiences! It was impeccably clean and beautifully furnished. The pool was the perfect temperature as was the adjoining spa. The big screen TV was great for movies and we really enjoyed the pool table and game room. We would love to stay in this villa again for our next vacation!

Thank you,

Karen, Gene and Diane

Fantastic Property!!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from a weeks stay at this fantastic property. Everything about this place made us feel right at home, from the cleanliness of the house, to the amazing pool & spa. I can't recommend this property enough to anyone considering a stay in the Orlando/Disney area. Looking forward to staying here again in the future.

Great house, wonderful neighborhood and truly attentive owners/property manager!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, toddler and I stayed for 2 nights in November 2016, and the house perfectly met our needs! It is in a great neighborhood (safe, quiet, convenient to necessities (groceries, gas, etc.) and with a terrific little playground for our toddler just down the street). The house itself was clean, comfortable and well stocked (including a crib and high chair, which is wonderful when you're traveling with a little one, and it means one less thing to bring/rent!). The pool and spa were an added bonus, and the owners were incredibly responsive to our request to raise the temperature so our little one could comfortably swim (we had also experienced a slight hiccup with the pool pump when we arrived, and the house manager was able to swing by and address the issue (a switch that was in the "off" position) within an hour of our call, which was incredible). Check in and check out was a breeze, as this house is really professionally run as a guest house (complete with helpful "notes" on how to operate various appliances as well as where to find needed items (extra towels, etc.). I would also note that the master bed has a really comfortable mattress (which was another pleasant surprise, as I don't often expect that level of attention to detail in a home that is a rental property). All in all, the neighborhood, the home and the responsiveness (and attention to detail) of the owners and property manager made this a great experience!

From Orange Tree to all major attractions is a 15 to 30-minute drive, with local supermarket and amenities no more than 5 minutes away.

As well as visiting the theme parks, why not experience some of Florida's other attractions and visit the Sunshine State's superb golden beaches and stunning coastlines. You can reach the West Coast in about 90 minutes.

Close by Orange Tree, a visit to Lake Louisa offers fishing, boating or maybe just a lazy Sunday picnic and leisurely stroll. Jaycee Beach with its fishing pier is just a short drive away.

Golf anyone? Take your pick from the many superb golf courses! Whatever your level - there is something for everyone. Play a round at Orange Lake Golf and Country Club on a course built by Arnold Palmer; it's just a 10-minute drive or Legends Golf and Country Club just a short drive north on the US 27.

There are also many festivals in Clermont and the surrounding cities. Winter Garden is always a fun place to visit. We bike there often. They have a number of good restaurants right on the bike trail. Our favorites are the pizza place and Urban Grill. You can start a bide ride at Lake Minneola for about a 26 mile round trip or Kilarny for about a 12 mile trip to Winter Garden.

Please do not hesitate to call if you have any other questions about the area. My husband and I spend 2-3 months there a year and we love the area.
