The CrowAsis got it's name about 10 years ago when my friends combined my last name with oasis and it has stuck ever since! Aside from sleeping you will love spending your time in the resort style backyard and on the "porch of indecision".
The CrowAsis got its name about 10 years ago when my friends and I combined my last name with oasis and it has stuck ever since!
The CrowAsis is colorful, it is surprising, it is real, it is open minded, it is relaxing, and it is home.
Colorful - The home is candy to the eyes, both inside and out, from paint choices, to decor, to the gardens. Something fabulous is always in bloom!
Surprising - We are located in a safe, quiet but extremely modest Winter Park neighborhood. The minute you walk thru the door you will be transported to a whole new place, you will feel yourself relax and understand why we choose Florida as our home.
Real - We are real people with real jobs and real friends. We love to enjoy life and all it has to offer and love to hear the stories of others. Nothing is more satisfying than being who you are, for real.
Open-Minded - From the living space to the core of who we are the CrowAsis is an open environment. My partner Ron and I have been together for 5 years and love Key West's motto of "One Human Family", hopefully you do too!
Relaxing - Movies on the big screen in the living room or outside on the porch of indecision. Bathing in the warm Florida sun. Swimming in the salt water pool. Relaxing in the hot tub. Having fun creating a colorful healthy meal. Reading a book in one of the many comfortable spots inside or out. Everything I have done to CrowAsis has been with that one word in mind...relax!
Home - We are not out of the page of a interior catalog, everything in and around the CrowAsis is personal. The decor is extremely eclectic, picked up from all over on travels and places worked. I absolutely love Mexican folk art so in some rooms you would swear you are in Mexico, other rooms a library or a museum, and a little bit of Halloween and Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas. There are personal pictures of good times all around, this is home and we love it!
I bought the house 12 years ago and since day 1 it has been an evolving work in progress. Unforgettable memories, friends, family, laughs, and love are what makes the CrowAsis so special and we can't wait to welcome more into our story!
The guestroom is exclusively for you. The Citrus Room has a QUEEN size bed. The cat is never allowed in it, it is your private space to unpack and relax in.
The bathroom is just 10 steps away from your bedroom down the hall. It could possibly be shared by other guests if the other room is booked, if not it is all yours.
You have access to the living areas of the house including the kitchen with a complete worldwide assortment of Tupperware products for you to enjoy.
You will love the screened in porch and the backyard! You have access to the solar heated salt water pool which will be too chilly for most from November to March. Use the pool at your own risk and absolutely no glass in the backyard, I work for Tupperware so the house is overflowing with plenty of pool friendly plastics which you are welcome to use!
Guests may also access the hot tub which is hot and ready to go year round! Use the hot tub at your own risk, if you are pregnant or think you may be pregnant you should not use the hot tub. Please shower before entering hot tub and wear the smallest bathing suit possible to keep the water clear and fresh.
The house has a monitored security system and has closed caption video you will be provided with a personal code of your choosing during the dates of your stay.
You will be sharing the house with my partner Ron and I. We have 2 bedrooms listed on Airbnb so there is the possibility of other guests as well.
I work for Tupperware Brands Corporation as the Retail Operations Manager and Ron is a District Manager for Wendys. We have 1 cat named Ralph who is mostly outdoors. He is never allowed in the guestroom but does enjoy the common areas of the house and yard. The litter box is in the garage and we do keep the house very clean but wanted to mention it in case of allergies.
We both work full time and are fairly busy but we will certainly help answer any questions or provide recommendations. In the evenings we enjoy cooking or grilling dinners and on Sundays several of our best friends always come over for dinner and pool time, you are more than welcome to join us for laughs and delicious food! You are also more than welcome to complete privacy that is completely up to you!
Weather in Central Florida is typically wonderful, in my opinion!
November to May are the "dry" season. Dry for Florida certainly doesn't mean there won’t be rain here and there but it wont be daily as it is in rainy/hurricane season. We do get the occasional cold front in the months of November-March where it is possible to be near freezing temps in the overnight hours, but even at the coldest days are always in the 50s at least. It is also possible for it to be in the mid 80's for highs and low 70's for lows during this time so it pretty varied.
June 1st starts the Atlantic Hurricane Season as well as our "wet" season. You can expect daily thunderstorms that can produce heavy rain and lots of lightning the good news is they are usually brief, provide the perfect time to eat something or take a nap and then nice weather returns. The house has grounded lightning rods to reduce our risk of a strike.
Temperatures in Summer are hot and humid so bring appropriate clothes, drink plenty of water and be sure to bring comfortable shoes, almost all the attractions in Orlando require a lot of walking.
My biggest belief in life is that the world would be an amazing place if everyone treated others as they would like to be treated and that is what we ask of our guests.
Please treat the house and grounds as if they were yours.
If you use the kitchen please place dishes in dishwasher and help keep the spaces tidy.
As a general rule quiet time is between 11pm and 7am. Please be mindful of voices, TV volumes, etc. during these hours.
