    The SpaceTake yourself to another age when houses were built with care, had real wood floors and lots of character. We fell in love with this home and purchased it in 2001. We live on the main level, but a flight of stairs takes you to an open area originally created by a previous owner for his 2 children. This space is ideal for a family, for 1 or 2 couples or the business traveler. The upstairs area has hardwood floors and lots of windows and light. There are 2 queen sized beds that have their own space and two twin-sized pull-out beds. We completely renovated the bathroom early 2016 & there is a view of the backyard garden from the window. For your relaxation, there is a sitting area with a Keurig coffee maker, small refrigerator/freezer. There is also a CD/radio system and a flat screen TV/DVD that offers premium channels. With a living space totaling 707 square feet, it is almost like being in your own apartment! We have an outdoor pool (seasonal use) that is great for relaxing or swimming laps and an outdoor shower with hot and cold water for nature-lovers. Guest AccessWe live here and be here when we have guests, but our guests are welcome to sit in the living room or library area downstairs, use the pool for swimming (seasonal use - we have pool towels you can use) plus lounge chairs for sunning and a charcoal barbeque grill if you want to buy something to cook out! We also have a piano and guitar downstairs our guests can use. Use of washing machine & dryer upon request.

We also love sharing information about our great town on Lake Monroe and learning about the places our guests come from and their travel adventures!

We are 10 minutes to the Seminole Mall for shopping, only 30 minutes from the Orlando Airport, 45 minutes to Disney World, 45 minutes to East coast beaches and Daytona sights and about an hour to the Kennedy Space Center and 1 1/2 hours to St. Augustine, the oldest city in America! Other Things to NoteWhile in Sanford, enjoy a luncheon or dinner cruise on the riverboat Barbara Lee, which leaves from the downtown Sanford marina or go to one of the many craft beer establishments. We are also home to the Central Florida Zoo which offers a zip-lining experience. When the mornings are cool, a 20 minute drive to Blue Springs State Park will allow a closeup view of manatees or go to Deleon Springs State Park for their famous pancakes (you cook them yourself!) or perhaps go rent a canoe at Katie's Landing on the Wekiva River! Bicycling to downtown and along the Riverwalk on Lake Monroe is a favorite activity when the weather is right - we even have a few bikes you can use!
