About Donna Chapman
We have lived in the Verandah since 2013 and recently purchased this rental home. We love it here and have been pleased to meet so many year-round and seasonal friends and neighbors. We think you will find our community to be very friendly and comfortable and will feel right at home here in the Verandah.

The Verandah is a "green", gated community conveniently located along the meandering Orange River, just a few miles east of I-75 on S.R. 80. It offers 125 acres of wetlands, 1,000 acres of glorious open spaces, 8 miles of nature and fitness trails, and two 18-hole golf courses: Whispering Oaks was designed by Jack Niklaus and Old Orange designed by Bob Cupp. Whether you're looking to simple relax and enjoy the natural beauty, or pursue more active outdoor challenges like tennis or kayaking, you will love it here at the Verandah.

Excellent place to stay...just as described...5 stars on everything
The house was better than we expected. It came with everything you need for a long stay (kitchen utensils, TV’s, WiFI, bikes, towels, bedding etc etc). Beautiful view of the lake from the lanai (which has new furniture). Very quiet and nice neighbours. So much to do in the community between bike riding, kayaking, paddle boards, viewing the Manitees. You also have membership in the Club which allows you to use the extensive bar and dining facilities. You can bike to the grocery store, liquor, bank, Pizza etc without having to drive or go out of the community area. I highly recommend this property ....Donna and Tristan are great hosts.
The rental was very nice. Will try to stay again. I was well received by the owners
Beautiful Verandah Home in Paradise!
We rented this home for the month of October 2016 and had a WONDERFUL time staying in Verandah! The house had everything we needed plus a beautiful lanai and there was a Community Pool and Workout Room nearby. We took hikes daily on the numerous walking trails. Only made it to the beach once, however, as we spent most.
of our time looking at models and eventually buying in Verandah!
This Community is like living in PARADISE........can't wait to move into our own home!
The Verandah is located just 2 miles east of I-75 on SR 80, also called Palm Beach Blvd. The Orange River flows along the property and kayaks are available for use in viewing birds, turtles, and manatees. The house itself has an oversized lanai overlooking a lake where catch and release fishing is allowed from your back yard.
