About Christine Levings

We are a recently retired couple of educators who love to travel. Since we love our home and neighborhood and are gone so much, we thought we would make it available to others while we are traveling.

Christine Levings purchased this house in 2002

The stay was great. The house exceeded all expectations. The back porch with the hot tub and the view was outstanding. We spent the majority of our time out there. It was convenient to everything in Deland. We would definitely stay here again.

Lovely home, tranquil atmosphere

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate to find this lovely home in DeLand. Our stay was stress-free and the location was so close to our family that lives in DeLand that we were able to spend more time with them and less time on the road. This home has everything we needed and more.

It's obvious that the owners appreciate their renters. They were extremely thoughtful and thorough with their instructions, which is most helpful.

We will definitely keep this home on our list of preferred vacation homes.

Very relaxing, wonderful get-away

  • 5 of 5

The property was just as advertised with hot tub, kayaks on the lake, fire pit, bikes and even a tire swing! Only 10-15 minutes to DeLeon Springs, and about 25 minutes to the beach. The inside of the house was nice, with great views of the lake and all of the comforts of home. We would stay again recommend the property to anyone who wants to get way from it all.

We rented this property when our son was getting married nearby. It is conveniently located off the Interstate and close to stores. The location is very peaceful and restful with great views of the lake. The fire pit was a favorite place to relax in the evenings. The home is very well-equipped, and the owner is very friendly and helpful. We will definitely rent this home again!
