Orlando House Rental Photos and Description

Lots of Upgrades ~ Manned Gated Entrance ~ WiFi ~ 55'TV ~ Private Sun Deck

Imagine coming home at the end of an exhilarating day at the parks, you grab a refreshing drink from the fridge, flake out on the sofa and reminisce about all the wonderful things you got up to that day.

Just perfect!

With an abundance of upgrades and an amazing location, Sleepy Hollow at Vista del Lago offers you the perfect place for a truly memorable vacation.

This gorgeous manufactured home has over 2000 square feet of air conditioned living space and is loaded with upgrades offering the perfect place to unwind after a hectic day.

And it's located on a prime corner plot in a gated and guarded resort just 5 miles to Disney. A great location!

♦ Soak up the Silence on the South Facing Deck ♦

Enjoy a BBQ or just enjoy all that Florida outdoor living has to offer. The deck has a dining table with padded chairs plus padded rattan patio set giving you plenty of room to relax. The deck is fully screened to keep the bugs out and let the sunshine in and there's a ceiling fan to keep you cool.

Reach up and pick your own Florida fresh orange or grapefruit from our trees.

♦ Fancy a Refreshing Swim? ♦

The resort has 3 large pools, the closest to the house is just a few minutes away. There's a game room in the clubhouse and a poolside snack bar too. Did we mention the spa? Ideal for rejuvenating those tired and aching feet. Or the fitness room? Work off those extra calories from all the great food in Orlando!

♦ Relax and Unwind in the Open Plan Living Area ♦

The two king bedrooms both have heavenly pillow-top mattresses, plush feather or hypo-allergenic pillows and fine soft linens. Both rooms have 42 inch HDTVs and DVD players too.

♦ Wannabe Wizards will Love the Harry Potter Theme Room ♦

There's a great step up bunk bed with full bed below and twin on top, plus a 42 inch HDTV with DVD player and the full collection of Harry Potter movies and books.

About Sarah & Ken

We have lived on the Greek island of Kerkyra (Corfu) for over 20 years where we own and run our restaurant in a busy tourist resort. Corfu is a seasonal island, so we have a busy 6 months working 7 days a week, then we head back to our second home in Orlando where we chill out, relax and enjoy the wonderful Florida lifestyle for the winter months.

Sarah & Ken purchased this house in 2010

Why Sarah & Ken chose Orlando

We were looking for something spacious, in a great location with a nice outlook. We found everything on our wishlist in this home and then some! The sun deck at the rear of the house overlooks the retention field so there are no rear neighbors, which makes it a great place to relax day and night.

The extended corner plot gives us plenty of space and, coupled with the fact we are tucked away in the corner of the development, there's little passing traffic.

The location was another draw too - 5 miles west of Disney and lots of restaurants within a couple of minute's drive.

The gated community is extremely friendly with a great mix of residents and vacationers and the leisure facilities are a great bonus. The resort has 3 large swimming pools, one being just a few minutes from our home.

What makes this house unique

The fully screened sun deck is peaceful in the evenings and a terrific sun trap during the day - perfect to soak up that glorious Florida sunshine. Enjoy a BBQ or just relax and spend precious time with family and friends. The perfect place to relax at the end of a busy day at the parks.

Excellent Customer Service

  • 4 of 5

Sarah was most helpful in saving our short vacation and rental situation. We originally had booked with another VRBO site and that owner cancelled our reservation after we had deposit confirming the rental. She was travelling halfway around the world (Australia) and responded quickly. We were able to book our weekend rental and conduct business with here when she wasn't traveling to her next destination. Sarah was a pleasure to work with and recommend her house for your vacation.

we love it...the harry potter house! :-)

  • 5 of 5

“We love it! :-)”It´s our 3rd Vacation in this house, because we love it...we feel we are at home. We called it "our Harry Potter House". I have 3 Teenager (15, 14,and 12 years old), 2 children in the Age of 5 and 7 years and a Baby with now 3 month. The house is perfect for us, because we love Amerika, Orlando and all the Disneyparks and this house is near from many parks and also near from the "Target" and "Walmart" where you can get groceries and souvenirs and everything what you need, for a good price ;-)You can also relax at the swimmingpool also only few minutes far away from the house or you can stay in the house on the porch and have a good Barbecue with your family and friends! The house owner Sarah and Ken are every time reachable and so congenial and friendly! :-) If we have the possibility we would stay every year in Amerika, in Orlando and in this great "Harry Potter House"!We will come back to this house as soon as possible!!Kind regards Bella

Sleepy Hollow was amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

Way more than we expected!! The house and accommodations were wonderful. It was nice having all the amenities of home while we were on vacation. With two children who can get on each others nerves from time to time, it was nice that they had separate bedrooms!! After a long day of park hopping and activities, we all had our own space to unwind. There is a huge empty lot next door for running around in, and the pool area is not far if your looking for a swim. The neighborhood is gated and very quiet, which was very much appreciated at the end of those long days as well. My daughter absolutely loved the Harry Potter themed room and rarely emerged from there during our trip. My son enjoyed the extra den with the Wii and all the games that were provided with it. My daughter actually joined him for a few rounds of Mario Kart which was surprising. My wife and I enjoyed the fact that the master bedroom is on the opposite side of the house from the kids. All in all, we had a wonderful time and highly recommend this rental property for anyone.

Comfortable and convenient

  • 4 of 5

Very nice stay at this home while visiting the Orlando area. We were traveling with my elderly parents and my brother. Very close to the Disney parks. Sarah and Ken were extremely helpful with directions and answering any questions we had. The neighborhood was quiet, and close to many different restaurants.

This home is awesome.IT is just as advertised .It's beautiful spacious and very clean. we felt so at home. We loved the Harry Potter Room it makes you feel like u just stepped into the movie. The gift basket was a added bonus we didn't have to go straight to the store for groceries. Sarah was so lovely to work with any questions we had she got back to us immediately. The home is so close to Disney and anything you need. We will positively be back year after year We would recommend to families,, couples, anyone looking for a very nice home. Thanks so much to Sarah for everything. Sincerely, Gwen and Joe

Making Memories

  • 5 of 5

It was smooth sailing from start to finish planning our Orlando vacation through Vacation Rentals. This was our first time renting and I was amazed at how easy it was. The owners where so prompt at responding to our questions and helped us out. Upon our arrival it was just as it looked online, very clean and everything we needed was in the house. The welcome basket and treats for our dog where so thoughtful. It was nice they had a binder of all the places to visit and tips for getting to and from the parks,restaurants, and stores in the area. They even gave us ways to get our tickets delivered to our house if we needed them. My three daughters loved the Harry Potter room and had more fun watching the Harry Potter movies every night in the room. We also loved the pools on the property and clubhouse. It was a great place to stay, activities for all the kids and we look forward to our next visit. I would highly recommend this property and vacationrentals.com to our friends.
