Canal life

"The Dora canal is a beautiful ride and we enjoyed sitting on the dock watching boats go by. We rented with freedom boat club and enjoyed a day on the lakes. The house was well stocked with essentials. We enjoyed the screened in porch and fire pit too."

Super cute and great location.

"Only upset we can't leave a better star rating. House was well stocked,convenient location and so cute. Christina made sure we were taken care of from check in to check out and then some. Dock and backyard are amazing. Kids loved the bunk beds and wifi and Fire pit (even had all the stuff for smores) We even got to enjoy some local goodies from Florida Grazing and CoCo's sweet treats. Super close to downtown Tavares for food and entertainment. Watched the fireworks right from the dock. We will definitely be back soon."
