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 house in my favourite neighbourhood of Orlando!

  • 5 of 5

Love this home...it is our third stay on this property and look for reasons to come back! It's super comfortable, beautifully decorated and in a great neighbourhood. Front porch is an added bonus...perfect spot for your morning coffee. Returning again in June and looking forward to it!

majestic Thornton park located bungalow

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying in-town in this central located charming 2bedroom 1 bathroom. The house is very neat with great decor. A few easy walking blocks to Lake Eola Park and many restaurants and bars . The neighborhood is full of character. The owner is outstanding and very accommodating. The internet was alittle choppy so don't plan on working or streaming movies.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking time to respond. And your feedback re: the internet. We switched recently from AT&T to Spectrum, hoping for improvement. Still working out the kinks. Looks like I will have to add another account to front of house. Spectrum claims due to the wall thickness the wifi has a hard time traveling through the extender, go figure.

Wonderful property and host

The property was exactly as advertised - clean, comfortable, and well-appointed. The host, Margaret, was fantastic and very easy to contact with questions. I would definitely stay here again!

Beautiful and comfy bungalow

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in the bungalow, in a lovely neighborhood. Great location to walk to restaurants and nightlife. Margaret was very helpful with anything we needed during our stay. The house was nicely restored and had a great blend of beautiful antique and contemporary furnishings. We will return!

Exquisite gem in Thornton Park

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely, beautifully decorated bungalow in a great neighborhood. Margaret the owner was easy to get it touch with and check in was perfect. The house was super clean and has absolutely everything you would need and more. Beautifully decorated and the most comfortable bed and sheets I've ever slept on in a VRBO. Easy parking, a beautiful porch to watch the world go by and just a short stroll to Lake Eola, shopping and the area's many popular restaurants. Can't wait to come back again soon!

The property was in a great location. We enjoyed the front porch a lot.

  • 4 of 5

The house was more than adequate for the 4 of us. It was nice that it was so close to the lake so we could go for walks and enjoy the nice weather. The location was great for the wedding we were there to attend and the neighborhood was friendly.

We were surprised to find food in the fridge when we arrived. We also noticed that the rooms were not level because the house had settled which provided a challenge for my 80 year old mother.

Overall a great experience! Thank you!
