Description of the Windermere vacation home rental
This Key West style home, located on the western shore of Lake Butler, Central Florida's exclusive chain of lakes, is a perfect location for a family vacation in Orlando, Florida.

Located only 20 minutes from Walt Disney World and Universal Studios, the home offers lake front entertainment with swimming in crystal clear, sand bottom waters including fantastic fresh water fishing. The second story balcony with wrap around porches offers breath-taking views of the lake and wild life. The master suite has hardwood floors, as well as a steam shower and claw foot tub for relaxing. Fireplaces in both the family room and master bedroom create a cozy environment. The on-site dock is perfect for fishing and/ or docking your boat. When you decide to experience the attractions, Orlando's theme parks, beaches, golf courses and shopping are only a short drive away. The home is approx. 30 minutes from downtown Orlando.

Best Kept Secret in Orlando

June 10, 2013

This place is awesome. Lake Butler and the Butler Chain are unbelievable lakes, and getting great access like this is priceless. Owners are great, and the location will get you anywhere you want to go. If you have a boat and want to do something other than theme parks, this is the place to stay.

Fantastic Home!

September 26, 2012

We just returned from our first trip to Orlando where we stayed at this beautiful home. To be honest, the pictures, which are wonderful, didn't do the home justice. The home is beautifully decorated, the setting calm and majestic, the beds comfortable, and the price reasonable. We looked forward to coming back to this lovely home each night after a day of playing tourist!

Easter Vacation Summerport Beach 2012

April 14, 2012

We had a great week in Summerport and all in all one of our best vacations ever. The Beach house is a stunningly beautiful hideaway of calmness and peace in a magnificent place with breathtaking views over Lake Butler. It helped my family and me to relax and create a big distance from stressful situations in a surprisingly fast way. We are so glad to have found this enchantingly beautiful house... and we hope we can return as soon as possible.

Great Place to Stay

August 18, 2010

My family of five very much enjoyed our 1 week stay at this home. It more than lived up to what was in print. The home is stunning inside and out and the lake view is fantastic. We met the propert owners and they were extremely accomodating. We would recommend this home very highly.
