Located in Windermere, a quaint town nestled among a chain of 8 clear lakes. Once the favorite weekend retreat of citrus growers it has now become a spot for the rich and famous. The old part of town retains the dirt roads and oak trees of a time gone by. Nicknamed the "Resort", my home was specially built for lakeside living. From the moment you enter the house the post card like view beckons you to experience all the lakes have to offer. 30 minutes from everything from Disney to Downtown.
Windermere is the choice of rich and famous for a good reason. A safe, family friendly community, it is minutes away from Universal, Disney, Sea World and 90+ Restaurants. Additionally, it is 30 minutes from downtown Orlando or 45 from the International Airport.
My home is situated on a quiet cove and dead end street. With only 5 homes on my street, you won't have to worry about noise or traffic but this makes it unsuitable for parties.
Guests will have free access all bedrooms, upstairs loft/fitness area and porch as well as the downstairs kitchen, pantry, family room, and laundry room. Outdoors you will have access to the Lani, Outdoor kitchen, and beach. Boaters have access to the beautiful chain of lakes through the Windermere resident private boat ramp. One closet in the Master and the garage are not available
Interaction with guests
I am often out of town or even out of the country however I can usually be reached even when in the air via text or email.
Other things to note
I have a dog and a cat who live there. The dog often travels with me but the cat comes and goes as it pleases through a cat door. If the dog is there a pet sitter will come to bring the dog in and put her in a crate at night and then in the morning to put her out on her run.
There are fee weights and a Concept II Rowing machine for use as well as scenic, safe streets to run on.
The outdoor Lani/Kitchen area has a propane heater available for the cooler months.
Windermere has strict law enforcement which is why it is so safe. It is recommended you observe speed limits and if you bring a boat make sure it is legal as it is likely you will be checked.
Easy access to the lake may make the home unsuitable for young children who do not swim.
All Guest will be required to sign a Liability and Indemnification Agreement.
There are security cameras that view the front and back of the property and one that views the dog crate. Moving, disabling or tampering with the cameras may be cause for immediate evacuation and or the police being notified.
Locked storage areas such as the garage and a closet are monitored and any attempt to access may also result in eviction and or police being notified.
Hi, I am a corporate pilot for a company based in Winter Park Florida, Being on call 24/7/365 has its challenges but is offset by traveling the world at nearly the speed of sound. I am away more than a third of the year but when home I enjoy spending time with friends, my 17 member extended family as well as exercising, reading and things having to do with the water. In fact one of my passions is sailing from a tiny Sunfish in the lake behind my house to a Beneteau 41 in the Virgin Islands.
Windermere has been a favorite place of mine since I was a child. I was finally able to build my dream home there in 2004 and raise two children there. Now they are grown and I have a lot of extra space but it is still the place I want to be when I'm off the road.
