Our home sits on a beautiful lake with many wildlife encounters. We've seen aligators, deer, turtles, ducks, sandhill cranes, horses, cows, many fish, birds of all kinds, and otters.
Access to our canoe and kayak and bicycles, as well as our outdoor pool and many swings. We have many indoor and outdoor lounging areas for a relaxing afternoon in the Sunshine State. Indoor and outdoor fireplaces.
Our home comes with a fully equipped kitchen and outdoor grill. Cable, with HBO and wireless connection. In the Master Suite there is a garden tub, perfect for a soak after a long day at the beach or Disney World.
We are only 25 minutes from Daytona Beach--NASCAR, Bike Week, Beach Boardwalk and such, and only 40 minutes from Orlando--Disney World, Universal, Sea World, Mall at Millenia, outlets, International Drive. (Orlando Int'l Airport is only 35 min. away)
Each of the four bedrooms sleeps two; we have three double-size beds and one king-size. Faucet water is drinkable.
Our neighborhood is small and quaint. Most of the houses have a lakeview. Lots of old Florida Oak trees with Spanish moss; each property has its own privacy--ours especially. Many of the neighbors take morning or evening walks and bikerides. There is lots of lake activity, especially during the summer season. On the 4th of July we boast beautiful views of fireworks from all over town, a 360-degree view around the lake. Our neighborhood is mostly quiet, with many retirees and families with small children.
We are a family of four. We love entertaining family and friends. On most weekends you would find us gardening and working on projects around the house, after going out for a cup of coffee from one of the many local coffeeshops. We love going to local markets and garage sales around town. My son, 19, and daughter, 21, love to travel. He has been to Washington State, California multiple times, and the Bahamas. She has been to Costa Rica, Thailand, Jamaica, the Bahamas, and to nine different countries within Europe after studying abroad in Florence, Italy. My husband and I are eager to follow their footsteps and begin to travel the world in our middle-age. :) Our sheltie, Gordon, has a talent of singing "Happy Birthday" over the phone.
