The space

Our Cottage has an Efficiency unit at the back with it's own entrance, bath, and fully functional kitchenette. There is a sleeping loft above with a full size bed and a full futon below. It's a small space, but has everything that you need with two closets, lots of shelves, and a fully equipped kitchen.

Please see our other Orlando listing: "Lakeside Cottage-close to all!" for complete information and pictures of the property including the Efficiency.

PLEASE CONTACT US PRIOR TO ATTEMPTING A BOOKING. Rates and availability may vary. If booking for a US holiday, or anytime in the December-January period, the rates may be substantially higher. We may need specific information from you in order to coordinate reservations. It is best to let us send you an offer with the correct pricing and details to suit your circumstances. Plus, we'd generally like to learn something about you and hear that you have actually read what is written here!

We want to hear something about you and your group to make sure that you will be happy here BEFORE there is a reservation. If you write us and describe your group and plans, we can get back to you promptly. Both host and guest must approve any proposed reservation. We need to hear from you in order to feel comfortable having you as guests. Describe your interest and situation and let us make the offer, please!

The sleeping loft is accessed via a custom ladder. Wireless Internet and video/DVD playback are provided. The Efficiency has a direct view of the volleyball courts and lakefront through the French doors and the window above the breakfast table.

Early Florida lake homes were often oriented facing the water instead of the street. The lake side is where the fun is and the street side is just how you get there! Our property is an extreme example of this philosophy. We are secluded from the street by tree cover and fencing. When you drive into the property you are in a large parking area that is almost entirely hidden from the street. This serves as a buffer for the recreation areas that are beyond the main structures.

On the lake side we have two full-size beach volleyball courts, a covered pavilion area, a double-decker boat house, and a bonfire pit and hammock area down by the water. We are currently working on an outside kitchen set-up so that we can host our volleyball picnics without need to walk up to the house.

Thank you for looking! Again, please contact prior to booking. Specific rates may apply or we may need specific information in order to coordinate reservations.

Thank you for considering staying with us!

Our stay in Orlando was great! Sam was very informative about how to find the property and was there to meet us when we arrived as well. The place was just as described and was only a short drive to universal and Disney world. Also had a Walmart just around the corner which wa…

This host was kind & very accommodating when I requested a last minute booking. He was flexible and communication was prompt, though there was a point when he couldn't receive my messages. The apartment itself had everything we needed and was convenient to visit Disneyworld. The…

I really had no idea what to expect as it was the first US experience of airbnb. Sam was very patient and kind with me and did all he could to assist me. I loved being by the lake and being able to sit outside under trees.

Sam is a really nice guy, helpful, friendly and courteous. However the studio apartment is completely below par, plus overaul the property itself is a complete scrap heap with old wrecks and debris everywhere. Sorry sam but you need to get the place cleaned up big time and refurb…

Sam and Meredith were extremely helpful and pleasant in regards to any questions and assistance. The room was comfortable, well equipped and neat. The lake behind the property and surrounding adds to the already rather peaceful vibe.

A neat little cottage which was close to all the attractions one could wish to visit. Sam was great assistance to helping us find out where everything was.
