Overview

Villas at Somerset Condo Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Our vacation Villa is located in The Villas at Somerset, Kissimmee, Florida, and ALL VILLAS THERE ARE NOT CREATED EQUAL! Some are owned by large management companies who manage multiple units and others are owned by individuals like us. The rental experience can vary significantly at the Villas of Somerset depending on which individual unit you rent. Rent one of the mass-marketed units or one of the absentee ownership ones and you may be disappointed.

Rent ours and we guarantee you won't be!!

As owners, we constantly upgrade our unit because it is our vacation home. Our home has a queen bed in the master bedroom, queen in the second bedroom, two twins in the third bedroom and a sleeper sofa in the living room. We bought the unit new and, since we purchased it, have upgraded the carpeting and furniture, installed brass fixtures in the bathrooms, ceramic tiled the floors in the bathrooms, kitchen, dining room and hallway, installed granite counter tops and stainless steel sinks in the kitchen, installed ceiling fans and flat panel high definition TV's with DVD players in all the bedrooms, a stained glass fixture in the dining room, added decorative plants throughout and hung wallpaper borders and new artwork in all the rooms. We also provide free wireless high-speed internet access and HBO.

For those rainy days or restful evenings, our entertainment center in the living room contains a large flat panel high definition TV with DVD player. You will also find a library of DVD's, paperback books, puzzles and games for your enjoyment.

Now you might say, 'I don't care about all that, I just want a good price.' We rent the Villa ourselves to keep our rates low by eliminating rental agency profits and would rather have it rented than vacant. Our rates are low and haven't increased in the last 20 years. The bottom line is you get a more luxurious accommodation at less than you would pay for one of the mass-marketed ORDINARY ones!!

We have amassed quite a long list of loyal returning guests over the years. Once you stay at our condo you will discover what all of our guests have discovered, our home is the best lodging value, dollar for dollar, in the Disney area!

About Alan and Anna Prachar

Me and my wife Anna live in Aberdeen, NJ and have three children and a Yorkshire Terrier named Ernie. When the children were younger, we decided to try a vacation condo near Disney. The advantages of being able to spread out in a 3 bedroom condo with the kids was fantastic! It actually was the reason we decided to purchase ! Our grown children still enjoy going down a few times a year with their friends and families.

Anna and I are very active in raising money for the fight against breast cancer, as Anna was diagnosed in 2002. She is now a 12-year breast cancer survivor! The picture is of me and Anna in our New Jersey backyard wearing our custom-made team sweatshirts the day of the annual 3K Breast Cancer Walk in Point Pleasant Beach, NJ. We broke our personal fundraising record in 2013 by raising $6,282.00! Since 2002 we have rasied over $30,000 for Making Strides Against Breast Cancer and are Ambassadors for The American Cancer Society.

We also love country music and two-stepping and try to go dancing once a week.

Alan and Anna Prachar purchased this condo in 1990

Why Alan and Anna Prachar chose Villas at Somerset

Once we stayed in a vacation condo near Disney there was no going back to a single hotel room. Having the convenience of making a late night snack in the kitchen, grabbing a cold soda out of the fridge (no need to go get ice at the hotel ice making machine) or a scoop of ice cream out of the freezer, all without leaving the comfort of your condo, is just fantastic. There is also so much to do within minutes of the condo with the theme parks, water parks, restaurants and spring training baseball that we thought this is an area we will probably continue to return to because of our children and eventually our grand children. We decided we would invest in a vacation condo there. We are die-hard Yankee fans and spring training in Tampa is just an hour away! The trip from New Jersey to Kissimmee is about 17 hours by car and we have developed a routine that actually makes the trip very do-able. Often we have tools, supplies and artwork to bring down that cannot be easily taken on a plane, so the car trips become somewhat of a necessity. But above all else, we are just 3 1/2 miles from the Disney entrance and that is a joy (especially when you leave the park at night, completely exhausted, and know that you will be in bed a mere 10 minutes from now! )

What makes this condo unique

Now that our children are grown and visit the condo with their families and friends, Anna and I vacation there by ourselves and enjoy a restful, no pressure, no-schedule vacation that usually includes sprucing up the condo. Anna loves all the shopping. I'll bet that there must be 4 or 5 malls within a 10 mile radius of our unit with everything from the very upscale to the traditional chain stores to the fantastic outlets! Anna is a decorator in every sense of the word, so many of these shopping trips are geared toward finding something special to add to the decor of the condo. And we ALWAYS do!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Al and Ann:



Ann and I arrived home yesterday (Saturday ) afternoon and both of our children at their different destinations last night. To say we had a good time in Orlando would be putting it mildly. One of the highlights of course was the comfort and convenience of staying at your place at Villas of Somerset. Thank you for making it available to us. Couldn't

have been much nicer.





All the best to you and your children.



Sincerely,

Louis

We found the accommodation to be very homely and comfortable. It was ideally located for attractions and also for shopping. Facilities provided were as described in the advert although had some difficulties accessing Wi-Fi on site. We would certainly recommend the property and make use of it again.

  • 5 of 5
So many times you book something online and when you arrive the pictures have been misleading. Well in this case reality was better than the pictures. Very convenient to parks ... very clean ... as comfortable as staying at home. We have found a gem for our Orlando trips and cant wait to get back.

Owner's Response: Hill and Doris,
Thanks so much. We love when our guests appreciate what we offer. When our children were younger, we would rent a house in Cape Cod for a week based on the rental agency's write-ups and photos. The reality was very far from the descriptions and photos, which usually resulted in our being disappointed.

That is why when we market our vacation home we STRESS that what you see is what you will rent! We're sure are guests are skeptical until they arrive and then their reactions are just like yours! We hope we can help with your future Florida vacation plans.

Sincerely,
Alan and Anna

Felt like home, awesome and comfortable

  • 5 of 5
Basically I can tell you only good things. Fairly close to main attractions. What we saw in the add is what we got. Nicely clean and maintained, kitchen equipped with all the basic needs and even more, good neighborhood as well. Al was prompt and courteous every time I called asking for something. I would recommend this property, absolutely. Not only recommend but if we ever go back to Orlando, we would love to stay in there.

Condo nice-property mgmt and staff not

  • 4 of 5
The condo is nice and is a good location near pool house. It is spacious and has TVs in every bedroom and the family room. It also has puzzles, books and a good selection of cookware although there is no bake ware. The price is fair for the unit and the owners are nice to work with and responsive. The key box system makes it easy to access the condo. The beds are in good condition and the unit is nice overall. My main concerns have nothing to do with the condo, but rather with the property staff, from the property management company who didn't return calls of other members traveling in our group to the rude club house staff. The male clerk was in particular intentionally unhelpful. There is still a Disney ticket sign up although they haven't sold Disney tickets in year. Apparently years later, no one is allowed to remove it to avoid confusion for travelers looking to purchase tickets and ride the non-existent shuttle. He also intentionally refused a package despite the previous clerk providing specific directions on how to address it to ensure the clubhouse could receive it. Kudos to the UPS driver who noted the male clerk was uncooperative on the first delivery attempt and made a special return trip to deliver.

Owner's Response: Glad you loved our vacation home! Our management team is typically helpful and responsive in answering the questions or concerns of our guests. We will forward your review to them and request a response. We will also find out why the "ticket booth" is no longer used, yet still maintains a prescence in the clubhouse.
We appreciate you letting us know.

Great location at an affordable price

  • 5 of 5
We had a great visit to Florida and loved staying in this condo. Everything was nice and clean. The pool and clubhouse were nice too. Our daughter loved the bedroom with the twin beds. This condo is in a great location--close to attractions/dining and shopping. Next time we are in the area, we would love to stay at this condo again. We plan on suggesting this one to our friends and family. The owner is great to work with and everything was just as promised:) A great condo at a very affordable price!

Owner's Response: Barry and Melissa,
We know that you were apprehensive about booking a vacation condo online, sight unseen, so your satisfaction with your vacation experience is THAT much sweeter!

We also have heard the bait and switch stories and we wanted you to be comfortable with your lodging choice. We only own this one vacation condo and we wanted to assure you that the photos and videos on VRBO and our own website were authentic and reflected the home you would be renting.

Thanks so much for the kind words and we welcome you and your friends and relatives to stay with us in the future!

Sincerely,
Alan and Anna

Spacious and Perfect

  • 5 of 5
We went for my daughter's dance competition and it was perfect. The condo was very spacious and in a good area, centrally located near plenty of stores and all her needs. Would definitely stay there again. The girls were able to go in the pool and have a nice cookout after a day of dancing. Couldn't ask for anything better.
