About the property

Spectacular sunsets shaded by grandfather Oaks and rippling water dotted with speckled perch are the absolute reasons for sitting on the sundeck every evening around 5:00. Beautiful house on canal with vaulted ceilings, waterside screen lanai, covered Tiki Bar and sundeck. A perfect spot for a relaxing Florida vacation. Close to the lock that opens to the Lake. You can keep your boat in the covered boathouse. Boat ramp nearby. A Fisherman's Dream getaway!

Excellent Fishing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Although the fishing was a bit off the week I spent at Okeechobee, the house and service I received from the owners was excellent. The location is perfect for access to multiple boat ramps. I have traveled and stayed at many fishing "camps" and none of them have compared to the cleanliness and overall amenities of this house. The front parking provided plenty of room for our two boats and the neighborhood felt and was secure, we didn't have any concerns or issues leaving our boats out at night. I would recommend this house for anyone interested in spending time on the Big O. I look forward to staying here again in the future.

Awesome place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time I have stayed at this place and I will continue to keep coming back here! Ideal location for putting your boat in at Scott Driver boat ramp, Okee-Tantee, Indian Prairie Canal or Harney Pond Canal. Very quiet dead end street. Plenty of parking space for boat and vehicles in front of house. Updated/modern bathroom looks awesome. All you need for relaxing stay. (Including the Keurig) Thanks Lynn

Return Visit

  • 5 of 5

This was my second year staying at the property. In preparation for a fishing tournament, the house is located at an excellent location, close to the boat ramps. The property is also one of the nicest houses I stay at throughout the year fishing tournaments. I'll definitely be staying here again for on future trips to the Big O.

Perfect Lake Okeechobee Vacation Home and Dock!

  • 5 of 5

The home and dock on Lake Okeechobee is perfect. The home and dock is equipped with everything you need for a worry-free vacation. The kitchen has all you need to cook dinner every night or grill out. If you want to dine out or shop, you are close to it all. The beaches are within an hour drive or less, if you want to sun yourself or you can enjoy the sundeck above the outside tiki bar and dock for your boat. The canal the home is on, is easy access to the locks entering Lake Okeechobee. The fishing was fun from the dock and our boat. The driveway has adequate room for vehicles and boat trailers. The neighborhood is very quiet and nice. Before we checked out, we were already planning a return trip. The house is so cozy, it is the perfect home away from home. Thank you for a very memorable vacation, we will see you again.

First off, I would like to thank our host's Lynne and Steve for an amazing week of R&R and for providing everything we could want and so much more!

"5:00 Somewhere" far exceeded our expectations as it is beautifully decorated and extraordinarily clean and comfortable. We loved sitting out on the dock in the morning watching and listening to the vast array of beautiful birds gliding over the water. And the sunsets over the lake were amazing! We grilled fresh fish and fresh veggies (from a farm stand up the road) and sat around the fire pit in the moonlight by the water's edge and roasted marshmallows for S'mores.

This is a little slice of paradise on a quiet street in a quaint little neighborhood. We are so thankful that we found it and cannot wait to go back!

Thanks again to our gracious and thoughtful hosts!
