About Joe and Petra

My wife Petra Schiller and I have been married since 2003 and we have two children, Sebastian, 11 and Natalie, 9. We acquired the home you will be (are) staying in, April of 2011, after vacationing in Kissimmee the month prior. We had such an amazing time visiting theme parks, rollerblading in the neighbourhood, and just spending quality family time around the pool. During our visit in 2011, we hired a real estate agent, viewed a few homes and low and behold....What we love about the area is that it has something for everyone. The theme parks,as we soon learned, are designed for family fun. Both of my parents and my mother-in-law have been to the theme parks and have thoroughly enjoyed their experience; they still talk about how enjoyable it was to see the children having so much fun. The area is also known for it's abundance of excellent golf courses. Right behind our home, for example, beyond the green space, is Mystic Dunes Golf Club. You are just minutes away from great golf at this championship course and many others in the area. Pack a lunch and head out to Daytona Beach or Cocoa beach for the day where you can park on the beach and enjoy the sunset or, venture out to the Kennedy Space Centre in Cape Canaveral, all just one hour or so away.

Over the past four years we have gradually renovated the villa to the point you see it now. Although we have a few more projects to complete and some decor to update, we hope you will enjoy the many enhancements we have made to the property thus far. We strive to make our property stand out amongst the many properties available. We believe that the time families and friends share together are special; so too should be the home they are staying at! We hope you enjoy your stay at our family vacation home and wish you many wonderful memories.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Joe

I wanted to email to say that we had a very enjoyable time in your villa on Magnolia Bend Court. Your villa was just lovely, and all the family had a very comfortable and pleasant stay. We found the accommodation very well appointed, which was echoed by our friends who were staying in 3 other places in Magnolia Bend and Star Lake View, all who thought your place was by far the most tastefully decorated and furnished, and was the place they would choose if they visited again.

It was a pleasure to deal with you, and thanks again for making our stay very comfortable.

Best Regards

Very nice peaceful and spacious villa close to Disney World. Very close to markets. Nice pool in the back (kids loved it)

Owner/manager were kind enough to arrange for last minute rental.

What else do you need in Orlando !!

Owner's Response: Hi Khaled, we're glad we could be of assistance to you and your family with a last minute booking. I agree that being close to all of the attractions, restaurants and shops are a bonus; less driving around and more quality time spent with family and friends. Look forward to hosting your family for your next adventure in Kissimmee.

Highly recommend this villa

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect villa for a group of 10. We came from the province of New Brunswick,the owners were great to deal with and always got back to me within hours if not minutes of me emailing. The house was very clean, well kept and very organized. The pool temp was absolutely perfect, the spa was great as well. Literally minutes from Disney and outlet malls!!! The villa was surrounded by great restaurants, we really enjoyed the red lobster just up the road. Super target was also minutes from the house. I have absolutely no complaints !!!!!! HIGHLY recommend this place.

Owner's Response: Hi Monique, thank you for submitting such a nice review. The pool and spa are two of our favorite "attractions" as well and it's extra nice to not have backyard neighbors. You have been super guests and welcome you back for any future vacations to the Kissimmee area. Glad you had a great time!!

Un placer habernos hospedado en esta casa. Es muy espaciosa y esta muy bien mantenida y cuidada. La verdad que es mucho mas linda que lo que muestran las fotos. Las camas son muy cómodas. La cocina con electrodomésticos nuevos, el lavarropas y secarropas inmensos.

Y lo mas importante es la atención tan amable de los dueños, nunca tardaron mas de 20 minutos en responder un mail, no importa la hora que sea. Cuando vuelva a Orlando no dudo en volver allí, nunca mas un hotel!!! Gracias Joe!

Owner's Response: Translation: It was a pleasure to have stayed in this house. It is very spacious and very well maintained and cared for. The truth is, it much more beautiful than the pictures show. The beds are very comfortable. The kitchen has new appliances and the laundry room has a large washer and dryer. Most importantly, was the friendly attention of the owners; they never took more than 20 minutes to answer an email, no matter what time it was. When I return to Orlando I will not hesitate to go back there. No more hotels !!! Thanks Joe! Owner's response: Lucrecia, thank you so much for taking the time to write such a positive review. Having traveled so far from South America we were so happy you chose to stay at our home so that we could be part of the many wonderful memories you had during your stay. We look forward to hosting your next visit to Kissimmee!!

Perfect spot for a Disney family vacation!

Hello Joe,

Thanks again for everything. We truly enjoyed our stay your home! It was perfect. The house was very clean, great kitchen, excellent TV room, nice spacious bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, and the pool was incredible! I can't say enough good things about it. We will definitely be back soon. Thanks for all your help with local information on grocery stores and restaurants. We were most appreciative of the directions via the "Disney Shortcut". That saves us a lot of time after a late night at Disney for the fireworks. We were also thankful for you checking in via email during our stay.

We hope to be back soon. We will spread the word when we return to Toronto. Cheers, Blake, Vanessa & family

The time we spend with family and friends is special. The opportunity to accommodate guests from all over the world is also very special to us which is why we strive to make our guests feel right at home. Every bit of helpful information about the area we offer our guests means less time searching and more time enjoying.

Property was better than the pictures indicated. Home was very comfortable and very clean. Kitchen well supplied. Pool very nice. Pool heat adequate although hot tub never heated as it should. Garbage disposal did not work but was a minor problem. We had such a good time I am almost embarrassed to mention the minor problems. Location is ideal for access to Disney and restaurants are nearby and plentiful. Owner is responsive and a pleasure to work with. We would definitely stay at this property again and would recommend this property to others. You cannot go wrong with this rental.

Owner's Response: Dear Richard, thank you for your review! It is so gratifying to hear that you and your family had such a wonderful time and that you found our home to be so comfortable and clean. Your concerns about the garbage disposal and spa heat, although minor, are much appreciated and important as they must be addressed. The garbage disposal was recently rendered inactive due to a foreign object being accidentally dropped into unit thus burning out the motor and as for the spa heat, the whole control system including the pool heater was replaced just before your arrival so I anticipate there is a minor glitch in the system. I will be there in about a week and will personally consult the appropriate professional tradespeople to rectify these issues. It was a pleasure getting to know you through our correspondence and look forward to accomodating you and your family the next time you visit Kissimmee. Take good care and thank you for your patronage. Kindest Regards, Joe.

Family vacation in Florida

  • 5 of 5

Just home from our family vacation April 23,2013. We cannot say enough about the Villa! Our son,daughter-in-law and their 7 yr. old & 5 month old daughter had a perfect vacation. The villa was all we could hope for and more. Even since our first inquiry many improvements were made, e.g. new gas BBQ, new fence and landscaping all very much appreciated. The location , just a few minutes from Disney World, shopping & restaurants and close enough to slip home for a dip in the pool was a special treat. The home was very well maintained and clean! Joe & Petra went above and beyond to provide any information we requested and answer all (many) questions to help us feel comfortable in our visit, providing helpful tips and directions and being available to help with any and all requests. As a family we liked the breakfast buffet at the Golden Coral just minutes from the villa. Sea world & the outlet shopping was also a hit. It was great to come "home" at the end of a busy day and feel safe and comfortable in our own lovely space!! We hope to have the opportunity before too long to return and will certainly be calling Joe & Petra to book!! An easy 5 stars, and we have already recommended this villa to many friends.
