Our home is a true lakefront home on a private access, 76 acre lake located in an established neighborhood that is well kept and a family environment you can feel safe to be in. We have been a vacation home 6 years now. We strive to be allergy free and therefore No Pets and No Smoking allowed. We frequently host repeat guests who come to visit their local family, vacations, Florida summer and winter breaks, and for competitions. SPORTS: We are centrally located near Lake Myrtle Sports Park, and competition water ski lake. We are so close that you can come back in 3 minutes to your piece of paradise after a long hard day and pull up a chair… or hop in the private pool and work on your tan. Enjoy the amazing natural lake view sunsets in the quiet, serene setting with a “Southern Exposure”. ~~~The pool can be heated for an additional fee in the cooler months. RELAXATION: We hope you like the wildlife as much as we do and we keep the habitat in its natural state as much as possible. Lake Whistler is home to a few whistler ducks, red wing black birds, comerant, coot, Ibis, red tailed hawks, great blue heron, sea gulls (in the winter), king fishers, crow, ring neck dove and a family of sandhill cranes that live in the neighborhood. We have a small otter family and you may see a tiny gator here and there, but they are professionally removed from the lake before they get big. Oh, we also have a few water skiers from time to time.
LOCATION: Auburndale just 5 miles off I-4. About 7 miles from Winter Haven and approximately 10 miles from Lakeland. We are just 1 mile from Auburndale’s water ski competition lake, Elite Cable Park (closed as of 12/2023. Expected to reopen late 2024.), we are 3 minutes from the Lake Myrtle Sports Complex and 12 miles from the Joker Marchant Stadium in Lakeland. The Sun N Fun fly in is 20 minutes, close enough via the toll road. Local shopping within 3 miles away. Legoland/ Cypress Gardens is an easy10 mile drive. Jump on I-4 for a quick jaunt to the Tampa area beaches or Busch Gardens in Tampa.
There is plenty to do here in the area. Here are a few things that we know of close by: Sun N Fun Fly In, Competition sports, Water skiing, including a new competition ski lake where the worlds completion will be in 2024. Action Water Sports, Ski Fluid less than 10 miles away. Don’t miss the Cypress Garden Ski Show in Lake Silver in Winter Haven. We are close enough to Lego Land but there are many more Vacation homes closer to Lego Land.
SUPPLIES: We supply 1 roll of paper towels, 3 dishwasher tabs 2, kitchen trash bags, 1-2 toilet paper rolls per bath room, liquid hand soaps, and a bath bar, 1 single use body wash, 1single use shampoo and conditioner and 1 single use lotion to get you started. Bring or buy your preferred bath items. There is a hair dryer in each bathroom just in case you didn’t pack one. For your vacation we suggest you bring your own preferred items or pick up essentials when you buy groceries. *We have a Park Style charcoal grill just outside the pool area in the back yard. Most often there are supplies left in the garage for grilling. The grill items and lighter are moved constantly so keep looking or buy a lighter. 😉 *The kitchen has most everything you will need starting with stainless cookware and a set of non-stick cookware. More than enough flatware, plates, bowls and all you need to eat from and prepare with including plenty of cookie sheets and round pizza pans. *Coffee lovers will appreciate the 10 cup drip coffee maker. We also have a Kerig style machine and coffee grinder. We have a blender for smoothies or frozen drinks. There are many other small appliances for a full cooking experience. You can dine inside at the 4 seat bar top and 4 at the table that overlooks the pool and lake or outside on the patio.
*UPDATED: The kitchen has granite countertops and new soft close cabinets, wall to wall tile throughout, master and guest toilets are new and taller than the powder room.
*Four bedrooms with sleeping for 8 people total. Bedside rugs in all bedrooms for your comfort since there is wall to wall tile flooring.
*The Master bedroom overlooks the lake and French doors opening to the private pool. The master bedroom TV is hooked up to local antenna. Feel free to bring your Fire Stick or Roku. There is a safe in the master closet. *The remaining bedrooms open into the hallway or the sitting room.
*There are two steps down to the patio where there is a table for 4 plus 4 lounge chairs you can easily place where you like.
*Back inside we have a nicely appointed formal dining room with seating for 8. *The comfortable living room has plenty of seating on the sectional with two end recliners. We have high speed internet and a flat screen TV with Roku.
*The laundry room has an older style washer and newer style dryer which allows for more efficient and quicker wash times. ~Do not put quilts in the washer as they are too heavy when wet and break the washer. We supply laundry tabs for the bedding to be started washing on the day of departure. The extra 1/2 bath/powder room is just off the garage. *The garage can be used to store your sporting goods or park your vehicle. There is plenty of parking in the driveway as well. Do Not Park on the Grass so that the irrigation system is not damaged.

*Free things to do in the area. There are some hiking trails nearby. The Florida Trail (Floridahikes.com) section 9, is less than 3 miles away and Tenorock requires a permit to hike. Lake Bonnet Park Lakeland/Bonnet Springs Park.
Circle B Bar Reserve, Cypress Gardens Water Ski Show and all sorts of food and beverage venues in Winter Haven and Lakeland. More information to come as this area is growing too. * There are several local menu’s on the secretary desk for you to review and dine out or order and dine at home.
*High speed Frontier WIFI throughout the house.

Strictly no smoking, and no pets.
