About Dale Jacobs
A native of Miami Florida, I have been in Lakeland since 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 Apartment in 2014
Why Dale Jacobs chose Lakeland
This area is in the historic district close to the downtown area. It is charming, relaxing and comfortable. We chose this home because we wanted to also be a part of the vibrant and ever changing downtown area.
What makes this Apartment unique
Charming and cozy 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.

The condo itself was very comfortable It had nice furnishings, a washer and dryer, and everything we needed There was also a nice patio area and grill available for our use There are 14 steps up to the condo which was a small problem for us Somehow I missed this fact when I booked this property. Also this property is on an alley which is fairly close to Florida Avenue. Florida Avenue is a very busy street and you can hear the traffic. The only other problem we encountered had absolutely nothing to do with this property or the owner, but there is a dog that barks in the house to the south and woke us up every morning Otherwise, this property is great location. You can walk to downtown historic Lakeland and there are a lot of bike trails Owners were very nice and responsive .
Great comfortable cozy apartment.
Thanks so much for welcoming note and bottle of wine. You made a stressful trip more tolerable with a cozy retreat at the office each day.
The Accomodations and The Location Were Both Perfect for Us!!!
The house was furnished with everything we expected and more, to make our stay more pleasant. In addition, Darlene and Dale very thoughtfully, included many things guests tend to forget, i.e. shampoo, hair dryer, paper goods, coffee, spices and other essentials. They were very responsive to all of our questions, and even left a welcome bottle of wine for us to enjoy..
The property has wonderful amenities, with bicycles, grills, and a quiet place outdoors on the patios. We rented both the Swan House & the Cygnet's Nest (apartment) for our needs. We would definitely book one or both the next time we need to stay in or near Lakeland.
This charming, one-bedroom apartment is located in the heart of Lakeland's downtown historic district. You are within walking distance of Lake Hollingsworth and Florida Southern College, which is known to have the largest collection of Frank Lloyd Wright architecture in one location.
