About the Owner

Our names are Peter and Holly Anderson. We purchased this home in March 2013 (having moved from Fort Lauderdale) and moved in after substantial improvements to the property were completed in October 2013.

Peter owns a web based musical instrument insurance business ( and Holly is an RN that has worked in emergency rooms in MA, Fort Lauderdale and most recently has worked for the past 5.5 years as a sea going nurse on Holland America ships. (The above photo was just taken on the ms Zuiderdam on a Panama Canal transit on October 12, 2014.)

We are both natives of Marshfield MA and lived until 2006 in Norwell, MA and Boston MA. We moved to a high rise condo on the Intercostal waterway Fort Lauderdale in the early part of 2006. In early 2013 we decided that condo living was not for us! A home search began in Broward County (Fort Lauderdale) in January 2013.

We also are fortunate to own another lake home in the mountains of NH where we spend three months in the summer.

We chose to spend part of our Florida vacation in Sebring not knowing anything about the area. It turned out to be an awesome decision. Sebring is a real gem. We like to bike for exercise and a way to become acquainted with the area. Sebring is great for biking, especially around Lake Jackson.

But the best part of our Sebring stay was the apartment that Peter and Holly have on Lake Sebring. As you will be able to determine from all the other reviews that follow, this is a great place to spend your time in the Florida sunshine, and the hosts are so special. The apartment is perfect and the sunsets are...well, awesome.

You get the idea. We had an awesome time and will be back next year.

Beautiful vacation site

  • 5 of 5
We spent the month of November in the apartment and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The apartment is well-furnished and has all the comforts of home. The bed is very comfortable which is important when you stay for several weeks. The sunsets on the lake, which are visible from your apartment, are magnificent and never the same. We enjoyed watching the wildlife: cranes, geese, ducks, etc. There is even a hammock which is great for reading and relaxing. Our hosts were exceptionally welcoming and hospitable. We would definitely return for another visit. Just like a five-star resort!

Owner's Response: We just love receiving this sort of feedback. We never stop trying to exceed our guests expectations and to that end just completed an upgrade of both of the TVs in the apartment to add to our guests enjoyment. Thank you for sharing this feedback with us and our future guests.

We had the pleasure of being the first couple to rent this lakefront apt for a month this year. It is an impeccable property and very well maintained. It far exceeded our expectations in all categories. The sunsets are breathtaking. The location is very close to restaurants, grocery stores, and golf courses. Charlie enjoyed fishing off of the dock almost daily. Peter and Holly went out of their way to make our stay both pleasurable and memorable. They have equipped the apt with all of the amenities of home. and were constantly doing improvements to make it even better. We would highly recommend this property to friends and relatives. We loved it so much that we are returning this year for a 10-week stay!

Owner's Response: When we decided to list our lovely apartment on we had no idea how much fun it would be getting to know our guests. We have made a number of new friendships and look forward to making many more down the road. We look forward to welcoming back Linda and Charlie in six weeks.

My wife and I spent three weeks at this large and lovely 1 bedroom Apartment. The description of this rental was right on.It was clean and well kept. The landscaping
was so beautiful . The view from the apartment over looked the Sebring Lake and
allowed you to witness the beautiful Sun sets. The owners went out of their way to
make sure that your stay was the best it could be. I would recommend this rental
to anyone. This rental is ideal for the golfer with at least ten golf courses
within a ten mile radius and your choice of restaurants closer than that. We plan
to return next year.

From the Owner

We had no plans to move to Sebring! We visited Sebring in February 2013 to visit friends in town and decided to meet with a local realtor as our home search at that point was in full swing. After seeing our home at 112 Karola, we made an offer and bought this lovely home. The garage and apartment were constructed in 1998 by the prior owners and they lived in the apartment for 4 to 5 years so you will find many amenities and comfortably sized rooms. The apartment is approximately 900 sq ft in size. The prior owners constructed the attached single family home in 2002/2003. Our lot is pie shaped and it fans out to about 220 feet on Lake Sebring. There is a great deal of privacy on our lot and it is located in a very peaceful neighborhood. We are ideally located minutes away from Publix, WinDixie and Walmart as well as many shops, big box stores, restaurants and a half dozen popular golf courses. If you enjoy sunsets, this is the place! The sunsets and colors before, during and after the sunset will amaze you. Don't forget to bring your camera!

From the Owner

What is a unique benefit to staying in our apartment. A picture is worth a 1,000 words! While we also live here on the property, the house and apartment are totally separate and private. While we do need to traverse the stairway landing to get to the garage (also your access to the apartment) we do so quietly without disturbing your piece and quiet. Having lived in a condo building with 118 units for the past almost 8 years, we are also very accustomed to see folks around our house and enjoy saying hello to our guests but would never be intrusive or overbearing! If you decide to spend your vacation here, we are confident that you will fall in love with our property just like we have. We have invested for long term ownership. Of all the places we have lived, this is where we plan on staying. We love it here and we hope to share this special place with you too.
