This was our first time using airbnb together and I am so glad Sam was the host :) We knew exactly what we were getting into and being easygoing people we loved it from beginning to end. Sam is so hospitable and accommodating. I love the history and character of the cottage and the rich details that come with it. We are an artsy, laidback couple so we appreciated the whole stay. We were amazed by how great we slept! Part exhausted from the park part great, cozy room. Either way we both slept so good. Speaking of parks, this location is a breath of fresh air as far as distance goes! Sam was spot on about how close he is to Universal. Amazing. Lucky to know our way around Orlando enough and so elated to be able to skip I4 etc during our commute to and from Universal. Some of the longest treks of your stay will be on I-Drive and I4, Universal and the like, luckily this location allows you to skip all of that and reroute yourself a bit better depending on the time of day. Sam is wonderful and so welcoming. I can only hope all the future hosts we have will compare to him!!
Sam was great in accommodating for my last minute decision to stay a night in Orlando. Despite our differences in scheduling, he was very flexible and easy to get ahold of. My visit at the Lakeside cottage was very pleasant! Would recommend this place to anyone.
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 area is cheaper than downtown Disney which was a plus. I did expect the apartment to be cleaner, especially the bathroom, but it was nice to have the extra space and it definitely served our purposes.
Sam is a very friendly and helpful host. Attentive and committed it all works.
The house is a bit rustic and a little dusty. But there was enough room for three people, and to park.
The price is ok and it is good for a short stay.
This was my first experience with AirBNB and I must say to everyone if you have not tried this experience you do not know what you are missing out on, after this exceptional experience good- bye to hotels are our words. This was a weekend getaway for me and my boyfriend. Sam's place is amazing, magical and enchanting, it does not feel as if you are Orlando. The location is serene and tranquil, the scenery makes you fall in love with being outside. Sam is a friendly host, he walks you thru everything in the cabin in detail, this is his personal home that he is gracious to open up for others to enjoy and make wonderful memories. On Saturday's there is beach tennis that he plays with his friends, we where invited to watch the game, the only regret we have is not playing with them. Sam and his friends where friendly and extended the offer to go have dinner with them at a local pizza place down the street, they treated both of US as we where part of their circle, long time friends. This was not part of the experience we expected, this gesture was very kind, and we had an amazing getting to know everyone. The best part of this location is the view of the lake, morning coffee with the sun on the lake is the hidden gem of Sam's oasis. The cabin is just as described in the pictures, the host is available thru text and repplies to any questions or concerns, very easy to communciate with, he welcomes you as if you where family. This place will hold a very special place in our hearts for many reasons, we can not wait to book again. Thank you Sam for a fabulous stay, look forward to returning in the future!
Al llegar a la casa nos llevamos una gran de decepción. La descripción era correcta: sin paredes, una cama en un altillo... el propietario era atento, pero estaba falta de limpieza, muy dejada tanto por dentro como por fuera, la escalera para subir al altillo no era segura ya que se balanceaba bastante y la nevera contenía alimentos de los anteriores inquilinos y olía mal. Yo no la recomiendo y no volvería allí.
Sam's place is one of the reasons why we stay at Air bnbs. His log cabin is a little gem full of old collectables and oddities, full of charm and warmth. There is an assortment of oddities and rusty equipment on the grounds. If this is the kind of thing that bothers you, stay somewhere else. We didn't mind it at all, walked past it and went to the pier for an excellent view of Lake Jessamine. The raised bed was comfortable, the kitchen was easy to use and clean, the shower was perfectly pressurized and the area quiet and calm. Sam was helpful, charming, available, patient, and a gentleman. We recommend his place for your stay in Orlando.
Simple clean efficient housing fair price beautiful lake good for a few people or a big group.
this worked out great the dock was nice and the travel to and from Universal Studios was easy. Our hot was welcoming and accomodating.
I have stayed in Airbnbs all over the world and this is probably the coolest place I have ever stayed. Sam was a very helpful host! He made it a very stress free stay. We woke up and watched the sun rise on the lake on his dock. The accommodations were just what we needed and nothing we didn't. Perfect orlando retreat!
Meredith was visiting with a group from FL to participate in the Rock & Roll Marathon! She was a great guest...independent & interesting to talk with...I'd welcome her back any time
Meredith and Sam are wonderful guests. Very friendly, easy-going, likeable, and fun to chat with. Great people--highly recommended.
We thoroughly enjoyed hosting Meredith and Sam. They have great humour and we enjoyed their company.
Meridith and Sam were super cool and friendly folks! They were busy hitting up all the Fringe Festival events - but the time we spent together was really nice! I also thought it was great that Meredith always called me Mattie :-)
Hope to see you both again next time you are in NYC!!
Meredith and Sam are wonderful, fun, and resourceful people. If you're coming to Orlando, then it would be a shame not to see it through their eyes. Whether you're here for business or leisure they've got enough connections to recommend the perfect setting, bar, restaurant, club, theater, event, performance, or theme park. They are genuine and easily portray a sense of comfort and ease. They are open minded eccentrics, and seem to be friends with all that inhabit the city beautiful: Orlando, FL.
Meredith and Sam are excellent, reliable individuals. They stay clear of people's personal lives, gossip and drama and have a clear respect for all walks of life making them hospitable, trustworthy and life long friends.
