About Margaret

I am an Interior designer/ architect and I love to travel. I have lived in many great cities (NYC, Aspen, Miami, and LA) and I always come back here. I use VRBO wherever I go. It's the greatest way to really get to know how the locals live, find the best restaurants, and enjoy walking communities.

Margaret purchased this bungalow in 2004

Why Margaret chose Thornton Park

Orlando is a great city. I grew up here. Whenever I leave Orlando, I am reminded of the great weather, interesting people, and ease of living here. You can walk/bike/ uber everywhere and there is always something interesting going on.

What makes this bungalow unique

Great local neighborhood vibe! Walk to dining, shopping, boutiques, Sunday farmer's market, and events around Lake Eola. With close proximity (5-minute Uber or rickshaw/ 10-minute walk) to Downtown Orlando, Performing Arts Center, Amway Arena, and movie theaters. 30-45 minutes to the Beach, Disney Area & Theme Parks & Convention Center.

Beautiful, stylish and welcoming.

  • 5 of 5

I just want to thank Margaret for an absolutely wonderful stay. Her property is beautiful, well maintained and has everything one could ever need. I spent many a lovely evening on the porch watching downtown Orlando go by. The community this home is located in is like a storybook, old houses, friendly people and a complete mix of folks. I wholeheartedly recommend this gorgeous home.

The amenities listed are not all provided. Daily maid service is listed. We were there 15 days and never had any kind of maid service. The sheets were never changed and there were no extra ones provided. We had to wash our 4 towels ourselves. Make sure you bring ant and roach spray. You will need it. The price justifies daily maid service but was not provided. The bungalow is quiet and located in a friendly neighborhood.

Owner's Response: I pride myself on my approval ratings and being as accommodating as I can for my travelers to ensure a wonderful stay. #1 My rates are never altered for holidays and peak season. This guest had my house for Christmas & New Years week at an unaltered price. #2 And if you are going to show up with pets you should offer to pay the pet fee. It is in place so I can have it cleaned thoroughly for the next guest. #3 Ants? this is Florida and open food on the floors and counters one may expect to attract ants. I have a contract with Massey to come whenever there is an issue at no extra charge. Even if it is one ant. You could have told me. #4 Housekeeping is always available for an upcharge. I work with my amazing housekeepers and replace broken or damaged items. And to make sure every towel is folded, every bed is properly set, and that the floors and walls and all surfaces are sparkling clean. I have never had a guest complain about providing them with a washer, dryer, and cleaning supplies so they may do their own laundry. I am always available for feedback and to take care of anything that will improve your stay much less to detract from it. I love suggestions for improvement and to do upgrades. So I always encourage my guests to let me know if they need anything that is not provided or if they have any suggestions.

Arriving at Margaret's house is always delightful. The house was wonderfully clean and inviting.The front porch was a wonderful place to relax. My cousin and I enjoyed dinner at local restaurants.

Adorable and elegant historic home

  • 5 of 5

This property was the perfect place to stay the week that my daughter was married at Cerviche! The bridal party got ready at the house, and the photographer was delighted with the beautifully decorated and restored home. It was comfortable as well as elegant - all the amenities were available. The property owner was responsive when I had to text her with a few small questions. Highly recommended! The neighborhood was beautiful and fun!!

Beautiful home, charming neighborhood, perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I traveled to Orlando with another couple for a sporting event and stayed at this property for the weekend. The home was adorable - clean, well decorated, spacious and anything you would think to need for a weekend stay. The home is in an adorable and safe neighborhood, and is within 5-10 minute walking distance of restaurants (nice and casual restaurants, sports bars, breakfast spots - Starbucks and other cafes). Also, if you're a runner, you are a few blocks away from the lake that has a great sidewalk looping around for a great scenic run. We were a very short cab drive downtown (where the Orlando City Stadium and Amway Center are), and about 15-20 minute drive to a large mall. The location was perfect for us.

Margaret was very quick to respond to our inquiries leading up to our trip, and check in/out was super easy. She was also very helpful when we asked for some recommendations for dinner/brunch during our trip, and the places she pointed us do did not disappoint. I would absolutely recommend this place for any family or friends, and would love to stay here again in the future.
