Dear Kathryne, Thanks again for letting us stay in your beautiful villa. We had a wonderful holiday and hope to come back next year!
The Martin Family,
We returned from our 4 week extended stay (thanks to Eyjafjallajokull...) yesterday and want to fly back tomorrow. The property is located about 1/2 mile away from the US 192 - the main highway cutting through Kissimme. Within less than 10 minutes you can be in all of the Disney Parks and other Orlando attractions.
The house itself is wonderful - very spacious, airy, light and full of every home from home appliance you could possibly need. The pool was wonderful - warm, large and had a great aspect overlooking the Oak Island lake and its resident black crane which spent hour upon hour cooling down from sun in the fountain!
We had booked 2 weeks but were lucky enough to be stranded for a further 2 weeks following the eruption of Eyjafjallajokull. Thankfully the owner (Kathryne) made plans for us to extend our stay and even gave us a discount (sharing our pain!). We met Kathryne several times and you could not meet a nicer person - nothing was too much trouble. She gave us some great recommendations for restaurants (not the usual fast food joints that sprawl across much of the 192) and where to shop and avoid the tourist prices.
The kids (6 & 4) had a wonderful time in the Orlando area - but it was further enhanced by the property's wonderful pool, spa (our 4 year old's 'pirate ship'), games room and the Mickey Mouse TV in the kids bedroom. They, naturally, want to go back as quickly as possible - but not necessarily for the theme parks but to jump into the wonderful pool and to simply relax in 'their Florida home'.
I cannot recommend this property enough - we've been home just over a day and have done so a few times already. We are a well-travelled family and have stayed at some of the best hotels and resorts in the world (all 5* - we like everything to be absolutely perfect!) and we're a little apprehensive about holidaying in a house - but it was a choice well made - one that we shall never forget.
If you're considering this area for your stay and this property is within budget then I would not look any further - make the enquiry today!
We have been back here three times since our last review. (SIX visits in total!) Nothing has changed, it has still got to be one of the best situated properties in the area. As always the owner, Kathryne, is only a phone call away and is only too willing to be of assistance should it be required.
We have said it all before and others who have submitted reviews appear to have agreed with us. Read them - we cannot all be wrong!
This was our third stay in Kathryne's villa which says it all.Excellent location for Disney also very close to I-4 for travelling to other destinations .Villa well maintained.Open plan very spacious downstairs.Fantastic pool not over looked by others.
Large choice of restaurants close by on 192
Oak Island Cove/Harbour is the ideal location for visitors to the Orlando area. Easy access to all the Disney parks and restaurants, and only a short drive up the I4 to Sea World, Universal and quality shopping outlets.
The Villa sits in the perfect position, quiet, private and alongside a lake. A home from home, there is every amenity you could wish for including pool and football tables in the garage to provide some relief from the theme parks.
Kathryne’s customer service is second to none, from dealing with our initial enquiry, checking all was ok during our visit and offering extended time should we need it on our final day. I think she also arranged the perfect weather…
We have just enjoyed a terrific holiday and would have no hesitation in recommending this villa to anyone visiting the Orlando area.

We arrived at the villa in May 2014 for a two week stay, our sixth stay in this villa. We have come to see this villa as a home from home whilst we are on holiday and feel very comfortable here.
On arrival, the villa was spotless and well stocked with towels, soap etc. It is well maintained throughout and we were delighted to return.
We have had excellent customer service from Kathryne over the years, a prime reason we choose to return year on year. She has always be exceptionally friendly and welcoming, and even makes the time to pop by and visit us most times.
The living area is spacious, with a huge TV offering multiple channels. There is a second living area which is really comfortable and a kitchen with all mod-cons (we love making our coffee fresh in the machine every morning, and ice to top up our drinks). The master bedroom is a great size and has patio doors out to the pool, also with views of the gorgeous lake.
The other bedrooms are comfortable, all with TV's and generous living and storage space.
Another reason we love this villa is its close proximity to the 192 and I-4. It's a ten minute drive to Disney and 20 minutes to the malls. We have stayed in other villas which do not feel as local as this.
Should we return to Orlando, we'll definitely stay here again. As I said, it's a home from home for us now and we feel totally comfortable and relaxed in our surroundings. Should also add there is a pool table and foosball table, with tv, in the garage, which we like to use as well.
Another excellent stay, thanks so much Kathryne. Highly recommended.
This property was highly recommended to us some years ago by a couple we met on holiday in Morocco and when we decided last year that we would go to Orlando for two weeks at Easter 2014 we were delighted to find that it was available and it has well and truly lived up to our expectations. It is not a brand new villa but it is all the better for that because it has a warm, homely and lived in atmosphere. We were a party of four adults and three young children and we all loved everything about this villa from the furnishings, bedrooms, games room and of course a fabulous pool area(with plenty of pool furniture) that looks out onto a peaceful and delightful small lake with its own fountain that is illuminated at night. The property is on a small,safe and quiet residential estate that is just far enough from the main roads of Highway 192 and Interstate 4 so as to enjoy peace and tranquillity after long days of fun at the theme parks. Even so, the car park entrance to Disneyworld is literally just 15 minutes away in the car and the other theme parks not much further. A nice local shopping area with ample parking is close by just before the traffic lights at 192 (when driving from the villa) and there are plenty of nice and varied eating places there and on 192 itself. The owner Kathryne Lennox who lives fairly close and on hand for any queries etc. could not have been more helpful during the run up to our trip and throughout. We have been to Orlando before in the 80's and 90's and always stayed in hotels, had this villa been around then it would have been our choice without question. We cannot recommend it too highly...it was absolutely wonderful and made our holiday just perfect.

All of the Disney Parks are within minutes. The Supermarket is 1mile away. The new Super Wal-mart is less then 5 miles away. There are numerous restaurants such as Outback, TGI Fridays, Indian Food, Chinese food, Red Lobster, Pizza Delivery and great Restaurants over in Celebration Village. If you like classic cars, Old Town is the place to be on Saturday night for the antique car show. The beach is only 1 hour car ride straight on Hwy 192. This home is located in one of the most desired areas in Kissimmee. If you are looking for a relaxing time or an adventure this is the place for your next holiday.
