Overview

Windward Cay Villa Rental Photos and Description

Lakeside Dream is an ideal short-term holiday home for an average sized family

Would you enjoy a spacious Florida-style home situated in a quiet rural backdrop only 5 miles east of the Walt Disney World Resort and in easy reach of the Sea World (Aquatica) and Universal Studios?

This spacious fully air conditioned villa has a prime, south-facing lakeside position on the charming and tranquil Windward Cay estate, an attractive and exclusive location well hidden from the busy surrounds of Kissimmee. Nevertheless, you are within easy walking distance of several restaurants and shops, including a large Wal-Mart supermarket, which should provide you with absolutely everything you need. Surrounded by pine trees and ranch land, this estate is a very well-kept Kissimmee secret. “Lakeside Dream” accommodates 6 comfortably and there is plenty of living space for everyone and a really lovely pool and deck area that you can enjoy for hours on end. The villa is also ideal for a retired couple who would like to enjoy the wonderful Florida sunshine for a longer period of time.

Due to its proximity to the lake and the very large pool deck area, this villa is not suitable for children aged 5 or under / or non-swimmers.

Lovely villa in a superb location.

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a wonderful vacation in Florida, staying at " Lakeside Dream". The villa is spotlessly clean and had everything we needed and more. Just situated off highway 192, it's an ideal location being within easy reach of a number of supermarkets and restaurants, yet tucked away in the most peaceful location, that was great to return to after a busy day at the theme parks! Our children aged 7 & 11 also enjoyed spotting the local wildlife, numerous birds of prey, storks etc and the odd softshell turtle or two, that inhabit the lake area.

All the main theme parks are within a short drive. Magic Kingdom and all other Disney parks approx 20 min and Universal about 30 mins. Orlando International airport is about 30 mins or so away. During our stay we contacted the management company who were very happy to help and give advice.

We enjoyed our stay so much that we are hoping to return to 'Lakeside Dream' in 2018 and do it all again!

Top house, top location

  • 5 of 5

If you are thinking about booking this house don't hesitate, top house, top,location, we definitely wouldn't hesitate in booking it again.

David could not have helped us more and offered us some invaluable tips including the car hire.

The house had everything we needed and more. The location was great, just round the corner from Walmart, excellent Mexican restaurant at the end of the road and easy access to all the parks.

The view over the lake gave us many happy memories from watching the variety of birds, feeding the turtles or alligator spotting (don't worry it was only a baby).

Had a first class memorable holiday and would definitely recommend this house.

Owner's Response: We continue to work hard to ensure that the villa is maintained at a very high standard throughout in order to complement its wonderful lakeside location - this review bears that out and is much appreciated!

Lovely stay in a beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in the villa for 6 nights with my boyfriend in March and had a fantastic time. The house is extremely clean and organised, spacious while still managing to be cosy.

The location of the villa is perfect for all the theme parks, it is on a major route yet set back on a small quiet estate which is easy to find. The back of the villa looks out on to a body of water surrounded by trees in which we saw some beautiful wildlife like Ospreys, Cardinals, some heron type birds and at night we even saw an armadillo!

The kitchen has everything you will ever need including a dishwasher which was a nice luxury and an enormous fridge freezer and oven. The bedrooms and sofas are comfortable and the bathrooms were spacious. The pool was clean and very pleasant to swim in even in March because of the heating.

There are plenty of restaurants and activities near by like malls, mini golf and cinemas in the area.

Lastly the owner David is just brilliant and always responded super quick to our emails and provided all the information you could ever need. I am getting a bit home sick for the place just looking at the pictures!!! I would love to come back next year and would definitely highly recommend.

Absolutely superb

  • 5 of 5

We booked this villa after a lot of research and boy we were not dissapointed.

Right from our initial contact with the owner, David, we knew we had made the right choice. The information he gave us before our arrival was excellent and he left nothing to chance.

When we arrived we were bowled over by how clean and how well presented the villa was. The pictures do not do it justice, it is even better in real life. David called us on our first morning to see how we had settled and due to the information we had been given and the welcome folder we had absoutely no questions. We had one very small problem when the kettle packed in a few days later. No worries, one call to the management company and they appeared with a new one. He even left us a christmas tree to put up!

Location was great and it was very peaceful with the outlook over the lake. The pool and the surrounds were very well maintained as was the whole villa.

We have stayed in a number of villas in Florida and this without doubt was the best. If we return to Kissimmee then we will definitely be staying here again

Owner's Response: We are very grateful for this great review of our lovely villa - it is so nice to see that our continuing hard work to maintain 'Lakeside Dream' at a very high standard for our guests has been recognised. We will not be letting up and plan several more improvements in the coming months to make it even better.......

Spotless and spot on!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Lakeside Dream in July for 10 days using the villa as a base to explore the surrounding areas and visit the many theme parks that Orlando has to offer.

We had found Lakeside Dream through research on the Holiday Rentals site, taking the other reviews into account and we were not disappointed! The villa is perfectly positioned with easy access to both local shops and restaurants as well as being only a short drive from Disney land etc. Having stayed in villas previously in Orlando, the best element was the fantastic lakeside location which meant the villa was not as over looked as previous villas I have stayed in and offers a fantastic view of the peaceful lake after a day of queuing for rides! Spending the early evening watching the wildlife, in particular our own local peacock whilst cooling off in the pool was a great way to unwind. The pool area was very clean and clearly well looked after and whilst the pool is not huge it is perfect for that all important dip after a long day, the only small comment would be the lack of shade when the sun is at its highest in the outside area…it does get very hot!

The villa itself is incredibly well stocked and has plenty of room for a large family, we effectively only used half the villa as there was just the two of us. The kitchen amenities meant the villa was a real home from home, with everything you could possibly need for your stay and there were plenty of towels and extra bedding if required. The villa was comfortable and spotless. Most importantly the villa has a fantastic air conditioning unit which was very well received at times! The instructions left around the villa were very clear and easily understood as well as a great welcome pack with all the info you could need for your stay.

The owner of the villa David made himself available to contact should we require anything and was always incredibly quick to respond to any questions we had via email.

All in all we had a great stay in Orlando and would most definitely book the Lakeside Dream again for a future trip and would recommend to friends and family. Thank you David for a great stay.

The pool has a very large screened deck area which includes a dining lanai/porch area with shade umbrella, table and chairs, as eating out in the open air by the poolside is a well established Florida tradition.

The villa is not suitable for children under 5 or non-swimmers
