About Terry & Tim

Eustis residents! Local business owners! Just regular folks like yourselves! We love to TRAVEL and enjoy staying in homes during our trips so we know what to provide to our guests since we're regularly on the other side of the coin! We also love to boat, ride motorcycles and camp! We are helpful but not intrusive with our guests......

Terry & Tim purchased this house in 2006

Why Terry & Tim chose Central/Disney/Orlando Area

Great location to downtown Eustis and all it has to offer with the festivals, restaurants, Lake Eustis boardwalk. While our home is in city, we also are fortunate to be on a private gated compound with lake behind our cottages! It is like having the best of two worlds!!

Wonderful family get away

  • 4 of 5

Loved the home. There was easy access to the forest and all the other destinations we were exploring. Dinners around the dining table were great. Nice location for a family vacation.

Clean, comfortable and convenient for our bikefest weekend! Great communication with the "hosts" was much appreciated. Will look to rent same place when we are back up that way!

Great place to stay. Wonderful, helpful, friendly owners.

  • 5 of 5

I've been renting from Terry & Tim for years. It's become my go-to place to relax & escape the cold, gray days in Michigan. I come knowing the house will be welcoming, clean, well-equipped. This is not your average Florida rental. It's a home away from home. The sun porch is my favorite room. Love sitting there, looking at the rippling pond, seeing the birds feeding, diving into the water, Terry & Tim live next door, are always willing to answer questions, make suggestions for things to do and see. I have some physical challenges and they do all they can to make it easy for me to stay there. To me, they're not just the owners. They've become caring friends. Can't wait to go back next year.

A wonderful home

  • 5 of 5

Another great vacation at Osprey Cottage. Terry and Tim provided everything we needed and wanted - including great weather! My favorite spot is the deck where you can enjoy the birds circling the pond, catch a cooling breeze and watch the dogs chase the squirrel. Walking the waterfront is always interesting (as well as great exercise) and there's a good selection of fresh fruit and veggies at the local flea market. I can depend on the house being clean, cared for, well stocked and a warm welcome by our hosts. I'm already looking forward to next year! To Terry and Tim: Stay well and many thanks for welcoming the extra family members this year... now they love it there as well.

Adorable and Immaculate Home

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 had an enjoyable stay at the Osprey Cottage. The home was immaculate and well maintained. On average we visit about 3 vacation rentals a year and this was the cleanest home we have ever rented. Wondering how far their cleaning service travels. It was also well stocked and conveniently located. The beds were comfortable. We enjoyed morning walks to the Eustis waterfront and the downtown area. Best of all is the sunroom equipped with gliders with views of the small pond visited by local wildlife. Tim and Terry were communicative and kind. We hope to stay again when in the area.
