VISTA DEL LAGO VILLA - HOME FROM HOME!CLOSE TO DISNEY!

Winter Garden Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

Bungalow, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-7)

We have owned Vista since 2004 and have spent many happy days here, and (hopefully) have helped the vast majority of our guests to have a fabulous Florida holiday, and many excellent reviews and comments in our guest book.

The bungalow is approximately 1640 sq feet in size with a lounge / dining area, fully fitted kitchen with breakfast area, fully screened porch with patio table and chairs, cottage suite and TV. The lounge has a 37 inch HDTV with cable channels and there are two portable TVs for use, plus a TV in the rear porch.

The master bathroom is huge with a large round tub, separate shower and twin vanity units. The master bedroom and guest bedroom both have queen size beds with built in closets, both having new mattress sets in 2012, and the third bedroom has twin over full bunk bed, ideal for the kids.

The master bathroom has been refurbished (2012) and we put new luxurious sofas, (three seater and a loveseat, plus a recliner chair, in the lounge (2012). New carpets have been fitted in the lounge and master bedoom (late 2011) and in the queen guest bedroom (2012).

Externally there is a carport and shed and a west facing patio area to the rear of the shed with all weather furniture, and a view of the lake, and the most beautiful Florida sunsets.

There is a community pool just a couple of minutes from the home, which is usually quiet. If you want to mingle, there are two other pools, just a short distance in the other direction, at the main reception area, where you will also find all of the amenities such as the pool room, sauna, play area etc.

The community is about 50/50 residential and vacation homes, and we have found it to be very friendly and the gated (staffed)entrance gives that added feeling of security. Although we have since bought a pool home, we still stay at Vista out of choice sometimes, because we love the relaxed, friendly lifestyle there.

Keywords: Three bed, two bath, three pools, sauna, tennis, fishing, gated community, wifi internet, cable TV, sat nav provided.

Guestbook comments from the owner
28/11/13 – 08/12/13 We really enjoyed our stay here and will definitely be back. We love Vista Del Lago and Kissimmee so this location was ideal for us. Ramp to the front door is an excellent feature as it makes the property accessible. This is a home from home and all your needs are catered for inc free WiFi, DVDs, Books - Sandra left us drinks in the fridge which was very welcome after a long journey. Sandra contacted me personally which was excellent customer service - I felt like I was renting from a friend :-) Just one request - new toilet seat in the master bathroom - I dont like wood!

Jeff and I bought Vista after staying at a friends villa in 2003. We'd been visiting Florida since 1990, but just fell in love with the community at Vista so decided to buy a home there and have never looked back. It was a big step for we cautious Brits to take but we have never regretted a moment of it!

Because we visited the Orlando area so many times before we bought it, we knew what people were looking for on a trip to Florida, so we have tried to provide as much as possible to make it a home from home, after a busy day at the theme parks.

Sandra H. purchased this bungalow in 2004

One of the things we liked about Vista was the fact that it was close to Disney, but in a relatively quiet area on the US 192. There has been some retail development since then, restaurants supermarkets etc, which have added to the amenities without detracting from the area. We also liked the feeling of security and the friendly atmosphere. Having looked at several other homes during the course of a long day, we walked into this one last viewing, and although it was in a sorry state we just fell in love with it's location and the rear aspect, especially the porch! We have spent many, many, hours bringing it up to a high standard.

GREAT LOCATION, GREAT COMMUNICATION, GREAT EXPERIENCE!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 4 stayed here and couldn't be happier. The communication with Sandra through the booking process was excellent. She was always quick to respond and provided us with wonderful directions and tips for the area (which there are tons of chain stores and restaurants all around). We were about 10 mins from Disney and just over an hour drive to Clearwater. For the days that we didn't want to travel by car we could walk to one of the 3 pools on the property or just enjoy the home itself that was fully stocked with everything we could ever want or need. My family will treasure the memories of this vacation and we can't wait to come back!

Owner's Response: Many thanks to Laura.Vista Del Lago is ideally located for those wishing to have a theme park vacation, or for those who just want to chill and enjoy everything else that Florida has to offer. We do work hard (with the help of our excellent management company) to make sure our guests enjoy their stay, in comfortable surroundings, and it makes it worthwhile to get wonderful reviews like this.

HOME AWAY FROM HOME!!

  • 5 of 5
Excellent home in a very nice neighborhood. Middle of everything. Very safe gated community. And the icing on the top is that the owner is super nice. Even though we did not get to meet her. She was more than accommodating of our needs.
We will definitely rent this beautiful home again.

Really enjoyed our stay at Vista. The villa was beautiful, with everything you could need and beautiful with views of the lake from the back porch, where we would sit on an evening watching the sun go down. The amenities were first rate, with a pool just minutes away and shops close by including a number of supermarkets. We also enjoyed riding the bikes around the estate taking in the sights. We will certainly be returning, 10 out of 10.
