Lakefront Home perfect place to rest, rejuvenate, fish, shop, explore, & relax.
About KIMBERLY PIERCY
We live in the Central Florida area and have raised our family in this area. We love to travel and be outdoors and Central Florida is ideal for various activities, including boating, hiking, and camping. Lake Dora and the whole Chain of Lakes is enjoyable to explore with all the surrounding cities that have so much character. This Cardinals Rest offers such a great getaway and opportunity to relax. We hoped that others would be able to have the same opportunity to rest, relax, and rejuvenate in this home. We have rented homes across the country because we enjoy feeling more like we are at home than a commercial hotel. With that in mind, we hope The Cardinals Rest feels as comfortable for others as a pristine getaway, a safe place to sleep, a clean place to prepare meals and truly feels like an extension of home while you are away visiting another location. We have truly tried to incorporate the best of all the places we've been and the qualities that we found to be the most helpful when staying away from home. This home and location bring all that and more. Welcome Home.

Peaceful Family Retreat!
We enjoyed a lovely weekend at the home! The owners have thought of everything! The outdoor living space was phenomenal-pool, hot tub, grills, loungers. The kitchen was great for food prep and well stocked with everything. We did not bring our boat for this trip, but expect to do so on the next visit. We have two vacation rental properties and our expectations were well exceeded. All agreed we will return!
Wow, Tina, thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. We are so pleased that you chose to stay with us and cared for our home so well. We do hope that you might come back soon and we would be delighted to host you again!
Excellent Stay in Beautiful Home
I recently stayed at this vacation rental and cannot say enough about it! The location was beautiful and house was perfect for vacationing with friends and family. The hosts were very responsive and accommodating. I highly recommend this tranquil getaway!
Thank you so much for taking the time to leave feedback. We appreciate your care with our home and invite you to stay again in the future.
4TH TIME & STILL A CHARM
After 2 family and 2 friends get a way at The Cardinals Rest we can do no more than start planning the next stay. We have stayed at some really nice and some not so nice homes in our travels, but The Cardinals Rest keeps us coming back for more. Great home, great kitchen, great pool, great hot tub, great yard, great lake and the greatest hosts. It is always a pleasure to come to a clean beautiful place. So much, that it is a pleasure to leave it like we found it. thanks for having us!!! See you soon!!!
We could not be more happy to host you and your friends and family. It is so comforting to know we have people we can trust, that appreciate our home, and treat it like their own! You know you're welcome anytime!!
We recently stayed at the home and were really excited that it offered such a comfortable escape from the bustle of being “in town” yet was close enough to get anyplace with 15 minutes. The house is fully equipped, we only had to bring our own food and beverages.
It is refreshing to have such comfortable beds and bedding to make our escape a restful one.
We were able to cookout on the pool deck (both Weber gas and charcoal grills are provided) and enjoy the afternoon in the pool, the hot tub, or just watching all the boats on the lakefront. There are several pool toys and floats at the house.
We loved having family time together in the evenings, the dining area accommodates everyone to play games, cards, listen to music, or do a puzzle. Games, a card table, movies, books and puzzles are all provided.
We communicated frequently with the owners and found them to be interested in making sure we were comfortable with being able to contact them with any questions or concerns.
If we have the chance we would stay here again.
Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. We are so happy to host your family.
We truly appreciate that you have seemed to take advantage of so many of the amenities we try to offer. The pool and view are a terrific part of what The Cardinals Rest has to offer, but we have also made an extraordinary effort to have the beds be top of the line, a well stocked kitchen and lots of comforts of "home".
We look forward to the possibility of hosting your group again sometime.
The place is great. Beautiful home and site. However, the entire house smelled like wet dog when we entered and the smell was still evident late Saturday night.
My wife is highly allergic and we left a day early due to nonstop sneezing, congestion, etc. at times. She had to leave the house for relief.
Your info folder stated no pets are/were allowed, but I beg to differ.
If it weren’t for this, I would highly recommend Cardinals Rest.
Thank you so much for taking the time to share your feedback. We do hope your wife is feeling better.
In fairness, we really do wish you had called us during your visit so we could have tried to resolve any issue that was troubling you. Truthfully, this allergy season has been extreme and perhaps she had a reaction to pollens in the area she was not used to. We genuinely strive to make every effort for our guests to have a wonderful and pleasing stay and learning about something of this nature after your departure leaves us little we can do.
We immediately visited the property to ensure nothing was wrong with the house and found no faulty equipment or any culprit for a foul smell. This issue you mention is most unusual because we have taken great lengths to make our home as hypoallergenic as possible since I am also highly allergic to animal dander and many outdoor pollens. Both air conditioning systems have recently been replaced with ultraviolet light technology to extinguish any and all germs or allergens. All soaps, detergents, and cleaning agents are all as natural as possible and without scents. We’ve owned this property for three years and no animals have ever been inside our home and we are careful to protect our "allergen free" environment.
We are happy to see that despite your wife not feeling well, you would highly recommend our home.
Very clean and perfect location! Very relaxing and quiet.
Thank you so much for taking the time to share your feedback. We are happy to have hosted your family and hope that you might think of us again in the future if you find your way back to Central Florida.
