Interaction with Guests
We are available all the time and have a very flexible schedule. We have season passes to Disney and love to go all the time ourselves, sometimes just to go on a few rides and watch the fireworks. If there's something different that you would like to do we have a friend that gives English style horseback riding lessons ($30 for a 30 minute lesson). We live right on a lake and we can arrange for you to have an air boat tour ($40 for adults, $35 for kids, 1 hour tour) to see some Florida wildlife and some gators. Airboat tours are a short 5 minute drive from our house and very convenient.
This is a lovely quiet neighborhood with houses nicely spread out with trees and farm animals. You can see horses, cows, cranes, eagles, turtles and a variety of wildlife right here on our road.
Please rent/hire a car if you have not done so already! We suggest renting with Budget Car rental and we ask that you do not make reservations with Advantage as previous guests have been taken advantage of by this company with extra charges. There is not convenient public transportation and I would not suggest that anyone plan to stay with us unless they are equipped with a vehicle!

We take our shoes off in the house and have places to leave shoes at both entrances to the house. We have a pet free house and like to keep it that way, so we ask that you leave your furry friends at home (or outside). No raw (uncooked) meat in the kitchen. Feel free to bring your sliced deli meat, pre cooked rotisserie chicken, etc, and order your meat filled pizza. No problem!! We just ask that you do not plan to roast a raw (uncooked) turkey or fry bacon in our kitchen. Thanks so much! Also, we have a pet free home. So if you have allergies, you should be fine here. If you have any special dietary requirements please let us know in advance. We are more than happy to accommodate you!! Lastly, please do not leave food in the rooms that will attract ants. We have plenty of space in the kitchen to safely store your food items. This is a tropical region, and ants can be a major problem if food is left out in the open. We have glass and plastic containers for you to use as well. Thank you so so much!
Rather than staying in a regular and touristy boring like hotel, we had a very unique experience staying 10 days at this outstanding American family house. The room was super comfortable, excellent beddings, freshly refurbished, modern, huge, silent, top quality furniture, super convenient, relaxing. We had for breakfast delicious waffles that we learned to make with Antonio. We had everything we needed from the kitchen and the room.
Antonio made us very comfortable all the time: he gave us some insights about shopping, the area, about Florida, the parks, and other things. And the twins are so kind and lovely! My daughter loved playing with them.
It was also very interesting to see their authentic, natural lifestyle. Very inspiring!!! We were very busy every day going to the parks and around shopping, but in the last day we finally took some time to explore the beautiful property surrounded by green an amazing huge trees - animals can also can be seen. We could see a hawk, and 2 deer's walking outside during the short moments we were in the house. We definitely recommend it to other families and would stay there again!
Accueil dans l'ensemble satisfaisant. Chambre spacieuse et bonne propreté. Beau jardin.
Super séjour dans cette magnifique maison

Jessica and her family were very nice and courteous. Their kids were not only welcoming but had a good time with our kids. The two families blended very easily and Jessica and Antonio made us feel like part of their family. The neighborhood is very nice and there a lots of restaurants few minutes away. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. Our kids are so eager to return to the place, so we will definitely plan another trip in a not too distant future. Thank you Jessica, Antonio and the kids for making your space available to us.
The family is really nice, they have lovely twins and we learned a lot from how the couple nurtured their babies! Regarding to the environment of the house, I really like the big ork trees which have moses hanging down, it's fascinating!
