About The Owner

We are Tim and Lisa Burton and have both been residents of Lakeland most of our lives. We met in 2012, married in 2014 and purchased this beautiful property soon thereafter. We love to travel and use VRBO on a regular basis when we do. Our experiences have always been pleasant so we decided to try it with our property! We have plenty of space here and will give you your own, we both work typical monday-friday schedules and are in and out quite a bit. We hope that you plan to stay with us and look forward to meeting you!

The Owner purchased this house in 2014

What makes this house unique

The main house and property have a neat history as the main house was actually the First Baptist Church of Bartow built in 1883. The structure was moved to its current location in the late 40's and added onto. Sometime in the 70's the pool and pool house were added. Our 2.5 acres are generally quiet and a very peaceful setting.

Perfect little pool house

  • 5 of 5

This pool house was perfect for our stay in Lakeland! My husband, my daughter and I stayed for week at this property. The decor was beautiful and clean. The location was quiet and seemed like you’re in the country but you’re just minutes from town, and the driving distance to the nearest beach is just around an hour. The owners were quick to respond to all of our needs and were super friendly and even set up the pull out bed before our arrival for our daughter to sleep on because we were getting in late. My daughter loved being able to walk out to the pool. There was nothing I would have changed about our stay at this property. It was perfect! Melissa Eskew

Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful place to stay. Very clean and recently updated. Decor was perfect and the bed very comfortable. The location is secluded, but still offers easy access to Lakeland. The pool and grounds were well maintained. Kids loved the pool and the critters! We enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay again. Highly recommend.

Stayed the entire month of December to be near family. This rental is spacious, nicely furnished and decorated. The bed and all of the furnishings were very comfortable. Private location, peaceful and owners were very pleasant and thought of everything needed during our stay. We will definitely be back!

Fantastic Visit!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a week at this wonderful little house. It was secluded but still close to everything. The place was immaculate and just the right size. We made good use of the beautiful pool as it was very hot during our visit. The location is great because it's between Tampa and Orlando so you can easily visit those places without staying in crowded areas.

The hosts were gracious and responded quickly to all messages. To top it off, we loved having their miniature donkeys and their little kitty waiting to greet us every time we went outside. We would highly recommend this place to those who want a quiet getaway but who still want to see the local tourist sites. Wonderful place. Can't wait to go back!!!

Very lovely and quiet place for a relaxing vacation.The house was super clean and furnished. and the swimming pool was a nice cool off. The owner's were super friendly.and would always ask if everything was Okay and if we needed anything. The house and yard had great WIFI connection. Which I was happy about, so I could stay in contact with my family in Germany. I would highly recommend this place to everyone! Very beautiful place! Tom from Germany.
