Area Description: Cumbrian Lakes is a popular established gated community, 10 minutes from Disney's 'Magic Kingdom' and other world famous holiday resort attractions. Situated close to the US 192 you will have easy access to a host of shops, bars, restaurants and other attractions, whilst at the same time being able to retreat to the peace of Cumbrian Lakes. Access to the site is via a palm tree lined driveway leading to a security gated entrance.
Rental Amenities: At Orange Blossom House you will be able to relax and enjoy your holiday to the full and enjoy all the comforts of a modern and fully furnished air -conditioned home, with its own swimming pool and Jacuzzi.
Activities and attractions: The open pool area overlooks one of the four local lakes, and a quarter mile jogging track incorporating a footbridge and fountain, is a feature alongside one of the other lakes. This setting forms an idyllic landscape particularly around sunrise and sunset. A well equipped children's play area, surrounded by silver sand and palm trees, is also a valued aspect of the development.
This is the third time we have stayed in this villa, and as usual found it to be extremely comfortable and clean, we are hoping to go back next year and would not hesitate to book with Karen again. The views of the lake are amazing, and will never tire of just sitting round the pool watching the wildlife, birds, gecko's and ducks, although we didn't see the alligator this year, so assume he has made his way to another lake. There is so much to do and see in Florida, and the villa is in a very desirable quiet area within a short distance of everything, so getting around is not an issue. We manage to get to watch a baseball game in Tampa when we visit which is worth while going to see, as is Kennedy space centre. Thank you Karen for letting us share your villa again, and I will be in touch with dates for next year to pencil me in.
We have recently returned from a fabulous stay in this beautiful house in Kissimmee, Orlando; I would say it was like home from home, but in fact it was much more spacious than our own home in England! It felt very luxurious to have the use of three bathrooms and our own swimming pool, not to mention having the chance to get in the occasional game of table football and pool!
Once settled in (finding the accommodation was simple with Karen's detailed instructions), we quickly got used to the journeys to and from theme parks; the route being very straightforward (as well as taking us past the much-visited Walmart!). Some of the other activities we also enjoyed were a boat trip on lake Toho (Boggy Creek) near Kissimmee, a visit to a state national park north of Orlando (Lake Louisa state park) and a helicopter ride over the theme parks in Orlando.
It must be said though that our (teenage) girls were definitely at their happiest when we found time to just chill in the pool; especially when we made use of the BBQ too!
All in all we enjoyed a lovely stay and would recommend this accommodation to any family.
Having just returned from Florida after an amazing holiday with the family, I can't praise our villa enough. It's our fourth time staying in Cumbrian lakes and by far the best.
Location is perfect for access to all the attractions yet far enough away to enjoy the peaceful surroundings of this beautiful home.
All rooms are on the ground level which was a pleasant change, the villa is beautiful decorated and spotlessly clean. The pool area was great and the added bonus of a jacuzzi also, the children had a ball as did we all.
The company looking after the villa were always on site if needed, and the peace of mind of staying in a secure gated community.
I will certainly return to this beautiful home and would highly recommend to anyone planning a trip to Florida in the future.
Thanks again Karen for making this a truly wonderful holiday.
On arrival we found the villa to be far nicer than described. It was very clean and well kept. We enjoyed sitting around the poolside and watching the wildlife that visited the lake each day. Cumbrian Lakes is a lovely gated community, safe and well maintained. It is a great get-away from the usual villa communities that are close to Disney and well worth the few extra minutes drive. We found many places to eat on the 192 highway which was just five minutes drive. Shopping was very easy with Walmart close by. I would have no hesitation in recommending this villa home and would happily return.
This property is clean, well maintained and well equipped. It's location is perfect for the Disney and Universal attractions as well as being close to US192 with its numerous shops and restaurants, or have a lazy day relaxing around the pool and jacuzzi.
We had a great holiday in this property, made easier by the owners good communication and the helpful property management company. We will definitely recommend to friends and family and rebook in the future.
We stayed from 12th Dec 13 - 3rd Jan 14 and what a fantastic time we had. Myself, hubby, 4 kids (16, 14, 9 &7) plus nan and granddad. We chose this villa because we needed lots of space, a lake view (with wildlife to watch), disabled access and to be near all the action without being on top of it. The villa fitted all the criteria and Karen (owner) was very helpful throughout.
Helpful info: Walmart - Turn right onto Oren Brown - its on your right, at end road opposite Medieval Times (a great show by the way). Newspapers - buy from 7 -11 gas stations. SHOPPING: Loop shopping centre good + Regal Cinema - both off Osceola Parkway - Use this toll road ($1.75) also if you want to get to Gatorland/Florida Mall whilst avoiding Orange Blossom Trail (OBT) traffic. Take your passport out shopping, as you may need id if you spend $50.00 +. Kids TV channel 36 and nearby channels. WILDLIFE: Osceola county schools environment study centre is great (sat/sun) for free wildlife trip and its mobility scooter friendly- turn left out of complex and keep driving appx 20 mins. Spirit of the swamp - fab airboat ride - also disabled access! CELEBRATION: nice lake/woodland walk, good ice-cream. Christmas snow - go very early to park. VILLA: disabled access: very good overall access, can access all areas of villa/pool. master bedroom shower does have a ledge 3/4 " high and master bedroom loo a bit tight for a mobility scooter (my dad is very disabled and cannot walk or use one side of his body). There is a toilet booster seat now (disabled/child) and a couple of steps for getting in and out of vehicles (in garage). flip doormats and pop over the tiny ridge into front door and scooter goes over easily. You can buy a gogo mobility scooter out here for less than hiring one! SeaWorld parks accept UK blue badge. Other:Jacuzzi timer pool wall. Tv's in all rooms! Extractor fan not sufficient - open front door and pop all fans on if cooking. You do hear the occasional light aircraft and freight train. But you also see Eagles, Turkey vultures, Herons (3 types) and a variety of ducks and white birds (whose name I've forgotten).
This is a lovely clean, spacious, and very affordable villa. I can highly recommend it to all those who wish to enjoy a peaceful, relaxing break with your own pool- whilst only 15-20 mins from all SeaWorld/Disney etc... Go ahead and book with confidence, and in no time at all you'll be having the holiday of a life time - as we have just had.
