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. I am also the managing partner of the Club at Eaglebrooke. My wife and I manage several properties, including three within this development.

We 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.

PS - This photo is from a recent trip to Havana - "John Lennon" was visiting too!

Dale Jacobs purchased this villa in 2014

Why Dale Jacobs chose Lakeland Highlands

We just love the safety and beauty of the Club at Eaglebrooke. Since we built it, we know that you will love sharing it with us. We chose this home because of its beautiful view of the lake and golf course.

What makes this villa unique

The idea for the "Hemingway Villa" was born after a recent trip to Havana. We wanted to recreate the warmth and charm we experienced there. This home includes many photos of our past visits and the great writer and adventurer, Ernest Hemingway.

We spent a month in this lovely home and found it perfect for entertaining.

  • 5 of 5

The property is located on the golf course and pond so we enjoyed viewing wildlife like cranes and ducks. Having a clubhouse available within a 5 min elk for a quick salad, sandwich or cocktail was perfect. And of course we enjoy proximity to Joker Marchant Stadium for Detroit Tiger games, the awesome Polk County Art Museum and the Florida Southern College Campus with its many Frank Lloyd Wright designed buildings.

Clean, stocked and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for two weeks while attending a real estate class. Dale’s home is spotless (I am a bit of a neat freak) and comfortable. The house is stocked with everything you need from day one. He even had a new bag of coffee (which I replaced) and a bottle of wine waiting for me! It is in a great neighborhood full of friendly people. Just book it!! Thank you Dale!

Nice house in a nice neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

We were pleasantly surprised that everything paper towel, toilet paper, dish soap, etc were supplied...even soap, shampoo and conditioner. The home is comfortable, clean and well kept. Our only complaint would be a battery in a smoke detector went dead and we were awoken in the middle of the night by a beeping detector. Other than that it was a great rental. Thanks for a great stay!

We are also located within 30 minutes of LEGOLAND and 45 minutes from the gates of Disneyworld, Sea World and Universal Studios. Busch Gardens in Tampa is also a 45 minute drive. Lakeland has a beautiful downtown area with fine dining, antique shops and specialty shops. Lakeland is home of the Sun n' Fun Fly-In, Mayfaire by the Lake and the Imperial Symphony Orchestra. There are several great bicycle paths close by and a large nature park within a 5 minute drive from the villa.

Besides the great food and sports bar at the club, which is within walking distance, also within a 5 minute drive are such restaurants as OutBack Steakhouse, Carraba's, BoneFish Grill and many more both local and national in nature. A beauty salon and spa are within walking distance of the villa.
