Overview

About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, 6 Sleeps

Accommodations:

Beautiful 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom house, pet-friendly retreat located in quiet and family oriented Woodfield Oaks Community. Although tucked away in Apopka, it is only a short drive to shops, restaurants, golfing, and all Orlando area attractions including Disney, Universal, SeaWorld and International Drive. Your vacation home is fully furnished with vaulted ceilings and an open floor-plan. It includes fresh bed linens and towels to accommodate a family or group, a flat-screen, updated appliances and flooring, master suite with walk-in closet, 2-car garage, outdoor grill, onsite washer/dryer, screened porch, fenced yard with a custom made deck with seating and tables. Also includes a hut tub attached to deck for those nights you need to relax your body after all those hours of walking on the parks!

Dining:

Apopka has a variety of local and great spots to treat all different taste buds. Mexican-American dining is most prevalent with Garibaldis Restaurant and El Potro. Also an excellent Peruvian Food restaurant only 2 minutes away. Chilis, Perkins, Starbucks, Panera and many different small and local spots only a few miles away. Also recommended is The Back Room Steakhouse Bar and Grill, a local spot with excellent food. Also try Catfish Place for southern style seafood served in a turn-of-the-century railroad depot or Topper’s Creamery or Rita's for a sweet treat. For upscale dining you can easily drive to neighboring towns such as Winter Park to experience the upscale Park Avenue restaurants such as Luma on Park. Nearby Mount Dora hosts “A Taste of our Town”, a weekly, guided food and wine tour leaving from the Chamber of Commerce building.

Shopping

You can grocery shop at Walmart Supercenter 24/7 and Sam's Club which both are less than 5 minutes away. For the ladies in the family there is an array of different options for clothes shopping, Bealls Outlet, Ross, Marshall's and a few small boutiques also 5 minutes away. Gas stations and little markets are also less than 5 minutes away.

Entertainment:

Orlando-area attractions are world-famous and too numerous to list. The highlights are theme parks such as Disney’s Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, Epcot, Hollywood Studios, Wet and Wild, Universal Studios, and Discovery Cove where guests swim with the dolphins!

One of the main local places to visit locally is Wekiva Springs Park or Kelly Park. These are natural reserves with springs, natural pools, nature walks, canoe rentals where you can go up river and see all kinds of Florida wild life. They are the most popular spots during summer for many Central Florida residents. They are truly and amazingly beautiful!

Other recommended activities include a stroll around Crane’s Roost in Altamonte Springs or paddling the length of Orlando’s Lake Eola in a swan-shaped boat. You may want to bike Apopka’s new trails, hike around Wekiwa State Park, or drive your own boat through Mt Dora’s Jungle Canal. For a little culture and nightlife, catch a show at the Bob Carr Performing Arts Centre or visit famous venues such as House of Blues, Hard Rock Café, or the Church Street pubs. Of course, don’t forget Florida East Coast and Gulf Coast beaches only 1-2 hours away including Daytona Beach, Cocoa Beach, and Clearwater Beach. Whatever your dream for the perfect vacation, Orlando can make it happen!

About owner/property manager

I'm a licensed real estate consultant in Central Florida. I've been in Orlando for 16 years now but I was born and raised in Puerto Rico. Real estate is my passion but I studied and worked in the hotel industry for many years. I understand the term accommodation. This property belongs to my family and it is decorated, furnished and equipped to feel like a home away from home. We are proud of it and we hope it serves all your needs during your stay. I personally take care of our guests and any need they may have. As I treat all my clients in real estate I like to treat all my guests in this property, like family! I only live 5 minutes away! If there ever is anything you need I will be there for you!

owner/property manager purchased this house in 2012

Why owner/property manager chose Central Florida

My parents live in Puerto Rico and they traveled quite a bit to visit. They have always loved the Apopka area because of its quiet surroundings, its closeness and convenience to everything and everywhere in Orlando without the hustle and bustle of the main city. It's a tucked away gem not many people know about. They wanted to invest and we found this beautiful property. Since they have cared for it with so much love and they only use it for a few months a year, we figured we'd share it.

I have lived here for 12 years and I love it. What more can I say? Come see for yourself!

Awesome Away from Traffic to Enjoy a Relaxing Stay! Pet Friendly!

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay of almost 3 weeks! Quiet in a neighborhood, dogs loved it, right near a Walmart for groceries, easy access to highways & freeways. Felt like I was at home there. We were there for my daughter's graduation so didn't do theme parks this time. Home is a ways away from the parks & International Drive, so if you want to be in the chaos, don't stay here, unless you want to really relax away from the noise after you're done for the day. We went to the Gulf, east coast beaches, wherever, was easy access & we got a good night's sleep afterwards. Loved, loved, loved!

The house was great, very clean and well maintained both inside and outside. Loved staying here!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our winter stay at this lovely, very clean and well maintained home. Joannie was wonderful and was was a pleasure to work with, taking care of our needs promptly anytime we called her. She was very friendly and gave us many local area tips to make our stay here as enjoyable as possible. We loved that the location was close to restaurants, attractions, and shopping. It was wonderful relaxing at the house and we very much enjoyed the hot tub. We also liked that it was pet friendly and had an enclosed fence. Our little dog enjoyed the stay as much as we did. We will definitely consider renting this property again in the future. Overall great experience!

Great Property with plenty of space

  • 5 of 5

The property manager was very attentive. The property was about 30-40 mins from the Disney parks using the toll roads so make sure you brings a lot of coins if you do not have a pass. The property was only 20-30 mins from universal without toll roads.

It was a great property to stay for a week and our dogs love it.

Beautiful setting for a perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

This house was the cherry on top for our vacation. It had everything we needed and was in a perfect location to Orlando attractions (if you don't have to rely on Uber or Lyft). The hot tub was fantastic for cool nights. The backyard was a refreshing oasis. The master bathroom was spacious with a to-die-for walk in shower and walk in closet. I have no real negative things to say about the rental. Everything was as it was described. I was sort of bummed that the check in was at 4pm or after. It kind of made me feel like I was cheated out of half of one of my rental days. I knew about this before purchasing the rental, but it didn't really bother me until check-in day. Other than that, I would definitely rent this property again and have already recommended it to colleagues and friends. Joannie was a superb host who was very friendly and very reachable if needed.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the awesome and kind words Carlyn! I am so sorry about the check in time, normally an early check in is granted however when we have a same day turn around it makes it a bit hard to do so. BUT, next time you decide to stay with us I will grant an early check in so you can have an entire day to enjoy our beautiful property! Come back soon! And once again, thank you for the great review! Joannie
