Four bedrooms, each has a queen size bed or futon, lounge chair, cable tv, wireless internet (code is on the instruction sheet on the coffee table in family room along with tips on using the TV remote controls). Three bathrooms. The kitchen is fully equipped (please feel free to use our large inventory of spices). We don't have a dining table however, so hopefully the weather will be nice enough to eat outside - the table accommodates 6-8. The family room has a TV/Roku with Netflix, Amazon, game table, chess set and a large selection of jigsaw puzzles.
The gardens have an array of places to sit and enjoy your coffee, wine and/or a good book. Or you may want to wander over to the lake and watch the sunset from the dock with a nice glass of wine.
You have full access to the patio/pool and grill, laundry facilities, and kitchen. We have towels and yoga mats out by the pool. Also, mosquito repellent and suntan lotion in the towel bucket. Mosquitoes shouldn't be a problem as the pool area is enclosed by a screen. The pool has a solar heater but this means that in winter the pool will be cool, not cold. Leaving the solar blanket on the pool will add heat during the day and putting it back on the pool at night will prevent nighttime heat loss.
We have three cats, and lots of interesting art. You would be expected to feed the cats daily but they prefer to stay outside during the day so litter boxes aren't a problem. They can go in and out via the cat door in the patio door. They often come to the back door at the kitchen so please let them in or out as they wish. They prefer to "do their business" outside which makes the litter box less important and Mommy very pleased so having easy access is important to all of us.
You will be expected to feed the cats, as well.They prefer to drink out of the pool so no point in providing them with water near their dishes.
Grocery store, shopping, some restaurants, etc. are nearby - you can drive, bicycle or walk. "Big" shopping and nicer restaurants are within driving distance.
We are located conveniently midway to everything: 10 minutes from downtown, 15 minutes to International Drive and a shopping haven, Convention Center, Universal Studios, Sea World, 35 min. to Disney, 45 min. to Port Canaveral, 20 min. to airport, etc.
Smoking is permitted outside.
We want you to enjoy your visit and we want to enjoy it, too, so wild partying is not part of the package. Our home is our haven and we hope yours, too.+ More
