Why Dianne Thomson chose Cumbrian Lakes

Originally owned by our friends George and Josie Hands.

We had some happy holidays staying in the villa with them,so when they decided to sell we bought it!

What makes this house unique

We had found a place where we could relax, find peace and quiet away from it all.What could be better than relaxing in your own pool,just letting the world go by! Please yourself when you get up in the morning,meals when you we want them - nothing rigid.No set times for anything!! Plenty of space.

This house had everything we wanted from a holiday home! Very well equipped with everthing you could possibly want.

Plenty of space to relax.Lovely view of the lake from the pool and balcony.We enjoy taking a slow stroll round the lake and the nearby nature trail.Plenty of wildlife to be seen.Great location for just about everything.Great for adults and families alike.What more could you wish for? This IS our dream home!

Guestbook comments from the owner

VRBO 229822

Our family of seven (including two very active grandchildren) stayed at Dianne's property for two weeks in February. Dianne is the key to our family having a fantastic, stress free holiday! Booking with her and fine tuning the details was easy. She was very quick to respond to any communications I sent her and deal with whatever needed to be looked after.In short she goes above and beyond to provide a home away from home!

The location of the house is ideal as there is easy access to Disney, Universal, Sea World, Lego Land,Old Kissimmee, health care and shopping. It is located in a quiet, friendly gated community.

The house was very clean and ready for us upon arrival. It would easily sleep twelve people. Everyone had their own place for privacy. The games room is certainly an added bonus. Many dart competitions were held.

The house is kid friendly and we really appreciated that. Baby gate, highchair, and strollers were provided.

The pool and pool area was also very clean. We paid to have the pool heated and it was! (Often with other VRBO rentals we have had to call many times to get the pool heated to a comfortable temperature and miss out on pool days as we waited) And the pool lighting for evening swimming adds another wonderful dimension. We spent many relaxing hours by the pool and our grandson learned to swim on his own!

I would rent this property again and will definitely be recommending this property to family and friends travelling to this area.

Dianne is the best part of this rental! She cares! Thank you Dianne for everything.

Great house for a family reunion

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 weeks for the christmas/new year holiday in this house. We are a family of 10: 4 grand-parents, 2 parents and 4 young adults. The house was perfect for our group, there would have been enough space for 2 more adults.

We wanted a house so we could have meals together as a family and go spend our days to Disney. The access to Disney was so easy, no trafic, roads with very few trafic lights. There is a Walmart very near by. The house is in a secure gated community which is also nice to go out for a walk. We paid for the pool heat and we used the pool almost every day. The jaccuzy heats up quickly to a higher temperature so, if you don't feel like taking a swim, you can just relax in the jaccusy after a long day in the parks. Nothing was missing in the kitchen and there was plenty of hair dryers for the 6 ladies in our party. Dianne was very helpful throughout the renting process, getting back to us very quickly when we had inquiries. I definitaly recommend this house.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the wonderful feedback! :-) Apologies for not replying sooner but have been in Florida myself!! Reviews like this, commenting on the villa, the location and the facilities, enable us to be proud of our home and encourage us to build on the overwhelming positive feedback we receive. During this month alone we have replaced 3 beds and now all six bedrooms have new flat screen TVs! What lucky future holiday makers and maybe even for you on a return trip?! Hey, why not book another vacation and I will happily give you 10% reduction on the listed price! Best wishes, Dianne

lovely property ....great holiday there ..

Villa was perfect for our family ....6 adults and 2 kids ...with plenty of areas for everyone to have their own space ..very clean and well maintained throughout...we all especially enjoyed the pool and games room .

Lovely setting by the lake ...and very easy to travel to all the disney attractions.

The few queries we did have were dealt with quickly and efficiently by Phil and his management team .

Many thanks to Dianne for sharing her holiday home with us and being so prompt and helpful with the booking process .

Wonderful villa to stay in.

  • 5 of 5

Renting this Villa from start to finish was AMAZING. Dianne is brilliant to deal with and made it so easy, and she always responds quickly to any emails. In our group was 5 adults and 3 older teenagers, 2 couples had the double rooms, the other 4 had bedrooms each, so we all had plenty of space. The games room was a big hit with everyone so was the pool and outside space. The villa is very clean, well maintained and fully equipped. The lake setting is absolutely beautiful with numerous types of wildlife to keep us entertained. The Cumbrian Lakes complex is well maintained and very safe and secure. There are shops, petrol stations, restaurants and diners all close by .Getting to the parks and International Drive took us between 20mins and 1 hour depending on what time of day. If I am lucky enough to go back to Florida I would definitely stay in Dianne's villa again.

Be carefully

  • 3 of 5

I wrote a review but looks as though it was not printed

So this is shortened version we stayed at this villa

And had problems first no phone for 3days second pool never cleaned as agreed so no pool for3days never had any calls from or visits from local agent ,it is normal for them to give you a welcome call

On returning home I had to after 3weeks ask for my deposit back only to be told there was damage and would have to pay for it

This is a bad rental so look else where I have pictures of the filthy pool we never even had an apology or offered any refund but cheated on the deposit. My advise is if renting take pictures on arrival and on departure

This is not the first time the owner has done this to renters

I write this and can fully back it all so I am prepared to enclose my email address for any one to call me

My family and I really enjoyed this home. It accommodated all 14 of comfortably. It was very clean and nicely decorated. The neighborhood was very nice and peaceful. I would defiantly recommend this house to my friends and other family members. Also the location was within 10 minutes of multiple restaurants and walmart which was very important to my family.

Wonderful Home

  • 5 of 5

Hi Dianne, Your home was the most perfect home I could have picked. I stayed in other home over the years and your home was the cleanest and had everything anyone could ask for. I spent three week in your home in Cumbrian Lake and it was wonderful no noise after the busy day at the parks and your pool was so relaxing. Loved the lake view from the pool. I would tell anyone to come to your home. And thank you for letting me stay and extra night due to poor travel conditions. We will be back next year I am sure. Thank you, Tom Berg
