About Dale Jacobs

A native of Miami, Florida, I have been in Lakeland 1974. I am a corporate attorney, developer and property leasing investor with several units.

My wife and I enjoy traveling all over the world and have had wonderful experiences with VRBO rentals. We know what we expect and appreciate in properties and have tried to create homes that will provide that same quality experience to others. Our VRBO properties consistently receive 5-star ratings from our guests.

Dale Jacobs purchased this bungalow in 2014

Why Dale Jacobs chose Lakeland

We added this property because it had the charm of a 1930's bungalow look and feel, but was newly built. The proximity to the downtown area and Florida Southern College was the prime reason we chose this property. You are within minutes of the college, walking paths, downtown, art museum, spring training with the Tigers, The Lakeland Center, art festivals and the Sun 'n Fun Fly-In.

What makes this bungalow unique

Newly constructed with a private patio. Within walking distance or an easy bicycle ride are Florida Southern College, Lake Hollingsworth with a 3-mile walking path, feeding the swans on Lake Morton, visiting the fabulous Polk Museum of Art and numerous restaurants and bars.

Hosts very welcoming and home was well stocked with basic needed supplies.

  • 3 of 5

We were a little put off by the older neighborhood and the outdoor patio was not usable space because of the debris accumulated.

Interior decor was cute. Beds comfortable but LR couch too small and uncomfortable for group tv viewing.

We enjoyed your beautiful Swan House. It was very nice to have quality kitchenware to cook a meal. We will definitely refer friends & family when they are visiting Lakeland. We enjoyed “Happy Hour” on the front porch. Our first experience with VRBO was very successful. Thank You.

Great location to our event. Cute house nicely decorated very well laid out and clean.

  • 5 of 5

The location was great with easy access to shops, restaurants and gas.

The house was small but very well laid out. It was perfect for 3 adults requiring their own space. We were very grateful for the small touches left for us such as coffee and wine :)

The house was very clean. We would def. recommend this rental.

Great location and beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this home. We were in the area for an event at the RP Funding Center. The home provided easy access as we were only a five minute drive. The proximity to the lakes and college were an added bonus.

The home is beautifully decorated. There was everything we expected and even some items we did not expect. We were pleased to see an initial supply of items such as shampoo, soap, and even some tea and spices in the kitchen. The available washer and dryer was a great feature. We were able to wash clothes before returning home.

We will definitely plan to stay at this home the next time we are in the area.
