Although we live on the beautiful Lake Whippoorwill, the beach has our hearts.

Kid-person, clearly 😉
Tyler and I were High School sweat hearts and when we got married 14 years ago, we chose to buy a house in Eagle Creek. It was a BRAND new neighborhood at the time and we were some of the first to move in. There was nothing out here in Lake Nona, but we loved the beautiful community and understood the potential of the area.
Since living in our first home in Eagle Creek, we have moved quite a bit, living in 3 different states! After living in Tennessee and North Carolina for 6 ½ years, we moved back to the Orlando area. We settled right back in Lake Nona…this time in our favorite neighborhood, the Lake Whippoorwill-Hart Community! My childhood best friend lived here, so growing up I spent lots of time in the neighborhood, back when Kirby Smith Rd was just a dirt road!
This neighborhood is SO special in that you can enjoy the peace and privacy of “country living” while being close to EVERYTHING. Lake Nona is a completely different place than when we first got married…and we are truly thankful to call this community home.
