Violating the house rules is cause for eviction without refund.

Having more people stay than reserved will be cause for immediate eviction without refund. No guests other than those listed in the Reservation Details are permitted to stay overnight in the home. No exceptions.

We have to maintain a strict policy when it comes to pets in our home because our family is very allergic to cats and dogs, and despite cleaning, dander gets into the air, and it’s nearly impossible to remove. We can’t make exceptions, so thank you for not asking if pets can stay in our home.

No smoking anywhere on the property; this includes the house, the porch, the hot tub, the dock, the boat house, and the yard.

No parking in the yard. We have a septic system and a sprinkler system that can be damaged.

Once you book, you will have access to the detailed list of House Rules. Please read them over carefully. This list offers guidance and rules to maintain the house as a "Beautiful Lakefront Home".

The neighbors are very nice and live there year round. As a courtesy, we tell our neighbors the number of guests and dates of each of our reservations.

It is a quiet road. Please be respectful.

You will not be disappointed with the beautiful setting in a convenient location. The house is spacious and is very homely. The kitchen is very well equipped. You will feel very at home and relaxed here. A fisherman’s dream. Lots of shops nearby too. We loved it. Wish we had stayed longer. Alex is very quick to answer any queries too. Thanks for letting us stay Alex.

Thank you for the nice review. I hope you can come back some time. We continually work to improve the place, so any future visit should be even better. Thanks for your private feedback, too. Some of these things, we can never know unless someone tells us, so we value all feedback and appreciate the opportunity to improve.

The layout of this house is great and the view is phenomenal. Could use shades on the master bedroom windows, even though it's private, you get alot of light in the mornings. Other than that, the house is perfect for lake lovers. Great place...magical view.

This was our 3rd staycation at Alex and Colleen's beautiful home and we enjoyed every moment. The house is well maintained, the view while you're cooking is killer, the kitchen is well stocked, the beds are comfortable and the sunsets can't be beat. Hoping to enjoy more sunsets from this dock in the future.

Thank you, Sarah, for the nice review. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. I wish that AirBnB had a more precise way to record your experience versus expectations, though. As you say in your private feedback, "The only reason I rated it middle of the road for expectation is because we know exactly what to expect -- a beautiful house on a beautiful lake, everything we need to cook, entertain friends and family." Unfortunately, this lowers our rating a little on AirBnB, which clearly doesn't reflect your experience. Your response is logical, but if people don't know the context, they'll get a mistaken impression. Maybe AirBnB will provide a different way to rate for repeat guests. I'm so glad that you continue to enjoy yourselves at our place.

Great place, with amazing views! It was so comfortable for our family and the beds were the perfect much better than any other rental we have booked! What a treat after a long days in Disney. We all slept great! We will definitely book again.

I am going out on a limb here and guessing that Julie intended her private feedback for us to be her public review, so I am copying and pasting it here: This place was amazing. Everything that was as posted. We were down for a family weekend wedding. We had a family of eight adults in vetting ages. Everyone loved this place. Would stay here again in a heartbeat. Thank you so much Alex and Colleen.

Alex and Colleen's home in Clermont is a wonderful place in an outstanding setting. The home is spacious and well appointed on a gorgeous lake. It was so wonderful to wake up each morning to the birds and scenery while feeling very private and secluded. Places like this are very difficult to find as rentals! We selected Clermont for its proximity to wildlife sights and golf. There are a multitude of reasonably priced golf courses that range from the mundane to the extremely challenging. No matter what kind of play you are seeking, it is within a 20 minute drive and very affordable. The natural beauty is also easily accessed through local parks or by kayaking on the chain of lakes. Either choice is a "winner". About an hour south of Clermont, in Lakeland, is a magnificent college campus designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. It is rare to see a coordinated collection of his buildings in one place designed for one purpose. In-depth tours are available and can be booked online. Definitely a "worth-see". As for dining, we chose to eat in most days. Although there are a wide array of restaurants in the area (ranging from fast food to "dining"), using the wonderful barbecue to prepare meals and then watch the sunset and evening birds made us a "stay at home" crowd. However, after golfing, catching a quick beer at Lilly's on the Lake in Clermont (on Lake Minneola) is a definite treat! We hope to return next year to enjoy the beauty, peace and comforts we enjoyed in 2017! And, hopefully, we'll improve our golf scores in the process! Thank you Alex and Colleen!

Alex and Colleen made us feel very welcome. They were very quick to answer all my questions know matter how big or small. Their place was very clean and looked just like the pictures, and as it was described. We had beautiful weather and took advantage of the pier and dock. My brother brought his boat over one day and we all enjoyed the lake and water skiing. Overall our experience was a very nice weekend with our family.
