About this listing
A lot of garden space and private pool surround our house still has the original charm of the 1960s with a modern house in the middle of the century - beamed ceilings and terrazzo floors and plenty of natural light. Screened in pool protects against insects , gardens, lounge / dining room and separate family room , laundry room and a large kitchen. We offer coffee, biscuits , yogurt and granola , oatmeal for breakfast but there are several diners nearby if you want a bigger breakfast.
You are invited to join us for dinner - we often barbecue and we are ready to throw the meat or vegetables of choice on the barbie with our dinner.
We have two rooms , each accommodating two people with a queen bed, sofa , cable TV , wifi and large private bathroom . It opens directly onto the pool, but see the floor plan to understand the layout of the house . Two people - additional children - can be accommodated on the sofa bed in the lounge which is very private and comfortable. These guests will share the bathroom with one of the rooms nearby. The bathroom is designed so that the toilet and shower are separate from the sink / dressing area .
You want to have full access to the terrace / pool and barbecue , laundry and kitchen. We have snorkeling equipment for pool and bikes, and yoga mats .
Parking is not a problem - we have a circular driveway that will accommodate 3-4 cars .
Grocery , shopping , restaurants, etc. is nearby - you can drive , bicycle or on foot. " High-end " shopping and restaurants are better than 20 minutes.
We are located midway easily all 10 minutes from downtown , 15 minutes from International Drive and a shopper's paradise , Convention Center, Universal Studios , Sea World, 35 min. Disney , 45 min. Port Canaveral , 15 min. at the airport, etc. There is public transportation , but not recommended because it takes too long .
My husband and I are in our early 60s - have fun and enjoy meeting new people and share a glass of wine. David speaks French , German, Russian , Spanish and Italian and I speak Spanish but do not understand a word.
We welcome a cat , Jasper. He deigns to let you stay here - and us.
Smoking is permitted outside .
We want you to enjoy your visit and we want to enjoy it, too, so the wild party is not part of the package. Our home is our refuge and hopefully yours too . I assure you that everyone who stays here enjoys their visit.
Our house is located on a corner so we have two means of accessing the curved driveway. Although the address is on Sweetbriar Rd. the front door is actually around the corner on Delaney. You may come around the corner and come up the driveway to the front walk to reach the front door.
Our living room - the couch is a sofabed and we have another twin air mattress in the armoire for overflow guests. Our record is 8 guests but we try not to reach it very often :)!
In viaggio per gli Stati Uniti con mia figlia Giulia, tappa obbligatoria per il Parco di Harry Potter ad Orlando, abbiamo avuto la fortuna di prenotare a casa di Cherule e David, una coppia molto accogliente ed ospitale, la casa molto grossa può ospitare due coppie alla volta perchè dispone di due suites, che godono di indipendenza rispetto alle attività della casa. La vita in casa ruota attorno ad una piacevolissima piscina e non è un caso trovarsi a fare un bagno coi padroni di casa anche dopo le 23. Il quartiere è molto bello, un susseguirsi di villette attorniate da piccoli laghi dolci che sono uno sfondo ideale per i bellissimi tramonti. Abbiamo amato molto la casa e l'ospitalità di Cheryle e David, ci hanno fatte sentire a nostro agio fin da subito e hanno condiviso con noi tutte le sere, ho trovato molto piacevole cucinare insieme a Cheryle e l'altra ospite cinese che come me è in viaggio per gli USA con la figlia, è stato molto bello trovarci a cena condividendo ciò che era stato condiviso. Cheryle e David trovano sempre un modo per mettere a loro agio gli ospiti, apprezzo molto il loro lato rispettoso dell'ambiente. Tornerei a casa loro molto volentieri e sicuramente la consiglio a tutti!!
Outstanding host, I was welcomed to their bbq, movie nights and lovely dinners. the lush landscape made me feel in the most prestige gardens of the world and I got to take home some of the amazing plants, my garden will look amazing and with their special gift now. The sunset at the lake was breath taking, absolutely loved it and recommend it.
Such a great place with beautiful garden and pool! My 1 year old son loved the splash time at pool. Feel like staying at friend's home. Feel like being at an art gallery.
David and Cheryle are kind, warm, lovely host. It was great to have time together, watching movie with wine.
Also, it was good chance to experience American culture even for short time.
Awesome! I recommend Cheryl and David's lovely house in Orlando. Thanks you so much!
Whether you are looking for a pretty warm and welcoming alternative, far better than staying in a “cold” room of an hotel, getting deep into the American culture, improving your English skills and so on, here is the perfect way and place to get it.
David and Cheryle are such lovely persons and excellent hosts…
Location is a high point of this place. The house is very big as well as the bedroom, it is really quiet, cozy, comfy and tastefully decorated. The neighborhood is wonderful, safe and plenty of nature life.
We (me and my wife) are already looking forward to visit Orlando again and we will definitely be back at this amazing place !
Thank you David and Cheryle and until next time!
Cheryle & David's place was perfect for our stay in Orlando. Cozy bed in a cozy room. Cheryle was an incredibly hospitable host, whether offering us coffee in the morning, wine in the evening, or spot on breakfast recommendations. The Beatty's place will no doubt be our first choice on our next visit to Orlando.
No pudimos conocer a Cheryle y David ya que estaban fuera unos días. Igualmente nos dejaron todo preparado y a nuestra disposición. La habitación grande y con cuarto de baño completo. Perfecta situación para visitar los parques de Universal, a tan solo 20minuts en coche. Cuidamos de sus gatos y un perro que eran adorables! Preciosa piscina y jardin.
Cheryle and David made us feel right at home. Their home is warm and welcoming, the garden was beautiful, and the pool/patio was especially peaceful. It was wonderful to meet the other guests from different countries all staying under one roof.

About the Host, Cheryle And David
We are a recently married couple in our early 60's, feel like 30's - we kayak, ride bikes, swim, windsurf, garden. We enjoy meeting new people and having new experiences. David is a banker, very liberal, an ex-opera singer (baritone) and speaks Spanish, German, Italian and French, a little Russian. I am a commercial interior designer, Texan, artistic and creative and can't sing a note, I speak a little Spanish but don't understand it. We enjoy tipping a bottle of wine or making a batch of margaritas especially with our guests. Don't smoke or do drugs.
