This is where I live - on a lovely brick street with large oak trees and singing birds. Your official greeting committee!  Winter Park is known for its peacocks. They freely roam the area but won't keep you up at night!

I renovated this charming apartment 2 years ago and decided it was too lovely not to share. I love that the neighborhood, tree canopy and songbirds make it feel like an enchanted treehouse! I pride myself on making guests feel pampered by stocking it with everything you need for a romantic getaway or escape after a tough travel day. You'll love the morning and evening walk by the lakes and 10 minute walk to Rollins and Park Avenue. Flexible check-in and checkout.

The space

Newly refurbished in crisp Florida Cottage style, this space will feel like you are staying in an enchanted treehouse. Walking distance to Rollins and Park Avenue. Spacious bedroom, dining area and fully furnished kitchen and laundry room.

Feel free to use the tandem or single rider bike and kayaks.

I use the front door when guests are staying to help ensure privacy and primarily interact only upon request after initial orientation.

The neighborhood is best described as a well established enclave of mostly lake front homes replete with friendly people out walking their dogs. It is secure, tranquil and well kept without being ostentatious.

Sunrail and Amtrack train service is nearby as are Lynx bus routes.

Guest access

Feel free to use the tandem or single rider bike and kayaks. Plenty of storage space in attached utility for long term rentals. I also have everything you need for a trip to the beach including a large sun shade, chairs, towels and boogie boards! All you need is you sunscreen lotion with a high SPF!

Interaction with guests

I temper my communication to the guest's style and needs. I'm forthcoming and friendly and also appreciate one's need for privacy. My dog is super sweet and guests sometimes end up taking him for walks! I'm always here if you need me, but will not intrude in any way.
The courtyard separates the Main and Loft House. I try to avoid the courtyard area by using my front door entrance
when guests are staying to help ensure your privacy after the greeting and initial introduction to your special home away from home.

Other things to note

Easy walking distance to shopping and dining. The neighborhood is very quiet and private. I dine at many of the area restaurants and am happy to make recommendations and help ensure you enjoy our beautiful little city.

Christy was kind, accommodating, and lovely to work with. Due to unforeseen circumstances (I'm looking at you Hurricane Irma) we were unable to complete our stay. Hoping to stay at the loft sometime in the future!

The Loft and owner Christy is absolutely fantastic! The accommodations are spacious, comfortable, private and wonderfully decorated! Beautiful quiet neighborhood, but walking/biking distance to fabulous dining, shopping and parks/museums! Christy is gracious hostess and has thought of everything for a relaxing stay (including necessities like coffee and wine!!) Will definitely return!!❤️

Christy's place was perfect! I used it as a place to stay the night before my wedding at the Winter Park Farmers' Market. The location is great - right in the middle of everything in Winter Park. The house itself is also super cute and very comfortable. I would happily stay again!

Christy was the best Airbnb host we've ever had! My husband and I are local and needed a short term stay before we moved out of town. The loft was extremely clean and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Would love to come stay again in the future!

Back at the loft for a second time! I love love staying at this cozy spot when I am in town for work. It is a true sanctuary. Christy has thought of everything you could need for your stay. See you next time!

Thank you for your interest in The Loft! I'm an easy going, friendly person who enjoys meeting new people. I work from home and teach at Rollins College. I grew up in Winter Park, love the area and recently returned after selling a large preschool on the south-east side of town. I'm delighted to share my special space in the heart of Winter Park with you.
