Overview

Country Creek Villa Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 6, private pool with extended pool deck

Welcome to our wonderful lakeside villa in the beautiful community of Country Creek Estates – whether you are hitting the theme parks or looking to chill out and relax, our home is perfectly situated for you.

Our home overlooks a lake to the rear - so while you’re relaxing around your very own pool you’ll have a fabulous view of the water, fountain and wildlife instead of looking at a fence or directly into the neighbour’s yard!

As well as for Disney, people come to Florida for the year round sunshine and our southwest facing extended pool deck can give you plenty of that! Instead of being cooped up in a hot games room in a garage or staring at a TV screen playing computer games, the whole family can enjoy some fun time together in the fresh air, playing in the pool or chilling out on a sun lounger!

Our pool deck gets the sun all day - a very important factor if you are staying in the cooler Winter months - but shade-lovers also have their cool haven under our lanai. We just love having brunch out here while watching the ducks and sitting with a relaxing drink on an evening with our feet up (or in the pool!) after a long day at the parks.

Complimentary wireless internet access is available (even on the pool deck!), just bring your laptop and keep adding your photos to Facebook and Instagram! It’s also a great way to keep up-to-date with events in the parks and the local area, especially if you want to give your feet a break and find something relaxing to do!

We have stayed in far too many hotel rooms which are tiny and have uncomfortable modern furniture - and a view of the service area or a wall or roof! Because of this the aim of our home is to provide a comfortable, homely environment which is light and airy and where you will feel able to relax and enjoy your vacation to the full. So why pay the average hotel rate of $118 per night for a bedroom and bathroom, when you can have a whole villa and your own private pool for the same price? No more slamming doors late at night or noisy guests in the room next door to put up with either!

Our welcoming and comfortable lounge/dining room is the perfect place to relax on an evening whilst watching a movie and has access to the pool deck through sliding doors. It has a large comfortable sectional sofa, coffee table, a flat screen LCD TV with multiple cable channels and a dvd player. We have a dining table and chairs if you want more formal dining - or need somewhere to rest that giant pizza box which won’t fit on your knee!

The master bedroom has a luxurious pillow-top king size bed, phone and flat screen TV/DVD combi, and an en-suite bathroom with his & hers basins, a big oval bath and separate walk-in shower unit. There is a large walk in closet with plenty of storage space, this is also where our baby equipment is stored (a highchair, baby monitors, pack & play and buggy/stroller). The bedroom overlooks the pool area so you can sit in bed and still admire the lakeside view!

Bedroom 2 has a tropical theme with twin beds and sliding doors which lead onto the pool deck/lanai (children are safe as alarms are fitted and will sound if the door is opened). Also has a walk in closet and TV/DVD combi.

Bedroom 3 is our Mickey & Minnie Americana style room which is bright and sunny and also has twin beds and a large closet.

The family bathroom, with basin, toilet, and bath/shower combo, is close to bedrooms 2 & 3 and also has access to the pool area (door has pool alarm).

The kitchen is fully equipped with an oven/hob, microwave, dishwasher, refrigerator/freezer with crushed ice, ice cube and water dispenser, washing machine and tumble dryer. Our retro American diner style breakfast nook is the perfect place to grab a quick coffee and bite to eat before heading out for the day. You can also gain access to the garage from here, where we keep the pool toys and inflatables.

For outdoor dining there is a table and chairs on the lanai/patio, and also a ceiling light and fan for warm summer evenings.

Our listed prices are fully inclusive and have no tax or cleaning fees to add on - many other listings show only the basic price so may not be as cheap as they appear! And if they are - there may be a good reason - is the pool southwest-facing, are the photos up to date, does the villa have a dependable property manager who will quickly respond to any problems you may have, do the owners visit their home regularly to make sure it is in the best possible condition for their guests? Our answer to all of those questions is a resounding yes!

About Paul & Lisa

We are Paul and Lisa and we live in the North East of England and love the USA - so much so, we even got married in Las Vegas!

We have been vacationing in the Orlando area since the early 1990s and will never tire of it – the weather is so wonderful, even in the Winter, and there is so much to do. At first we stayed in hotels, until we discovered the luxury of staying in a villa. The extra space and facilities make it so much easier to have some much needed relaxation time. And as for having your own pool – it just can’t be beat!

We’d love to spend much more time in our Kissimmee home, but still work full-time so that we can invest more money on continually improving it. It would be such a shame to leave it empty for the rest of the year, so we’d like to share it with people who will enjoy it and keep it company while we’re away!

We want our villa to be a great place to stay, so any profits we make are spent on continually updating and improving - over the last year we have bought flat screen TVs for the lounge, master bedroom and guest bedroom, a sectional sofa for the lounge, a new dryer, and bedding for all rooms, also the villa exterior and pool deck have been recently painted and the cushions replaced on all loungers and chairs on the pool deck, so you get to sunbathe in comfort!

We love staying at the villa ourselves and visit at least twice a year, which means we can personally ensure it is kept up to a high standard - and that everything works! We also ask our guests to let us know of anything they come across during their stay which needs to be replaced or repaired by our Property Manager in between our visits.

Why Paul & Lisa chose Country Creek

Our villa was the last one we viewed on our day of house-hunting. The one we were staying in at the time was situated much closer to neighbouring properties and was totally fenced in at the back, so from the moment we arrived at our new home we fell in love with the open aspect and the view of the lake and fountain. We signed the contract the next day as we were so determined not to lose it!

What makes this villa unique

Lakeside Villa is wholly owned and operated by us as our one and only private rental property, which enables us to give our full attention to your enquiries and bookings, guaranteeing you a prompt, personal service.

Our Management Company is also a small family-owned business who are based just 10 minutes away from the villa and are always available should you need any assistance. They take a great pride in the homes they look after and the Owner personally inspects our property prior to your arrival, ensuring that your holiday home has been cleaned to a high standard and that everything is ready for you, such as turning lights on if you have a late night arrival.

Our pool deck has been extended and is one of the largest on the estate, so there is plenty of space around the pool for sun loungers, chairs and tables. On your chill out days you can set yourself up early in the day and stay just where you are without having to chase the sun – no need to squeeze into a small corner to catch the first or the last of the rays! A very important consideration during the Winter months.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have had a great holiday at your villa, it was clean, spacious and in the best location. Emma loved the pool so much that she learnt to snorkel in it before we went to discovery cove. We all now have the holiday blues this week and wish we could have had three weeks. Oh well we will have to go back soon, but I won't leave it 25 years before I go back. We will definitely recommend it. Thanks again to you both.

Wonderful location!

  • 5 of 5

My sons and I stayed for a week in your lovely home over spring break. It was wonderful after a long day at the theme parks to return to such a quiet location where we felt very secure. My boys loved having their own pool and I loved the full sun that the pool area received all day, along with the large patio for sunbathing. The location of the house was perfect -- easy to get everywhere quickly. Publix was nearby for groceries and there were tons of restaurants to choose from. On the day we left, our flight wasn't until late in the afternoon and we weren't sure what we were going to do for the day. But we found a nice park to visit near the airport and were able to enjoy a little more Florida sunshine before heading home. Overall, a great vacation!

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Lakeside Home from March 1-8, 2015. We where 3 adults & 2 children age 6 and 9 years old. This place is exactly what we needed!!

The neighbor hood was very quiet and we felt very safe. Lots of stores nearby which was great. The owners of the house where great! They provided us with lots of information and answered all our questions prior to our arrival.

The pool area was perfect! We paid the extra to get it heated and it was well worth the money. The house was very spacious and felt just like home. We would definitely recommend this house to our friends and relatives.

We would love to be able to return as well. Overall this house was very nice.

Thanks again Paul & Lisa for letting us enjoy your home!

We try our best to supply our guests with all the information they will need and a description of all the nearby attractions, restaurants and handy hints & tips that will make their stay even more enjoyable. Thank you for your recommendation, it means a lot - and you are more than welcome to come and visit us again!

Space and Serenity

  • 4 of 5

Boy did we enjoy the tranquility this setting provided! We visited Disney World all week and it was great to come home to a quiet , relaxing and spacious home. It seemed as though it took no time to get from the park back to the villa.The pool area is both gorgeous and serene. We loved having Walmart and three of our favorite restaurants (Outback, Olive Garden and Red Lobster) close by. The owners were very responsive to all our inquires and insured that our vacation was memorable by providing us with a well kept, attractive property.

All round great visit.looking forward to a return

  • 4 of 5

We were lucky enought to avail of the property over the christmas and new year period. It worked as a great location, very convenient to all theme parks and of course a super Walmart just down the street. The property was kept to a high standard and everything about our holiday great, would definitely recommend a visit and we hope sometime to be able to return.. The owners paul and Lisa were a pleasure to deal with and all our queries were dealt with promptly. A big thumbs up from the Cameron's...

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind words, we’re very happy to hear from another family who have had a great stay at Lakeside Villa! The location of our villa is, as you say, ideal for access to theme parks and the nearby Walmart is very handy for all your shopping needs – after stopping off at a nearby restaurant for something to eat when we arrive, Walmart is our first stop for stocking up of groceries for the duration of our stay. We were so happy that we were next in the villa after you and found the Christmas gifts that you had accidently left behind after your stay. Luckily we didn’t buy too much ourselves this time so could bring them back in our suitcase and then post them off to you when we got home. We’re pleased that we were able to make your festive stay enjoyable and that you would happily recommend us to others, thank you once again for the big thumbs up & we hope to be able to welcome the Cameron family back to Lakeside Villa again in the future.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

From first opening of the door the villa is bright airy,and very very clean.the outside deck is also very clean.easy to get to,on a quiet pleasant road,an oasis of calm away from the madding crowd of Disney.however Disney and universal are both near and easy to get to.as a family we have been renting villas since 1998,this is by far one of the best.

What a gem.

  • 5 of 5

We (4 adults and one 11 year old) stayed at Lakeside Villa for 2 weeks commencing the 22nd October and what a great decision we made to stay here. Our main reason to visit Florida was to visit the Theme parks, as such we wanted to be located near to the parks but somewhere we could escape all of the hustle and bustle.

From the initial contact to our return home, the owners (Lisa & Paul) were great, they were really helpful in answering any queries (not just about the villa) and the information pack they provided about the villa and local area was brilliant.

The location / street is fabulous, majority of the homes are occupied by local residents which makes you feel part of the community (Halloween was great). The street is really quiet, but a 2 minute drive and you are on the 192 with shops (Walmart / Aldi) and a vast choice of restaurants.

The villa itself is fantastic, it’s huge and the outside space is perfect for those too few relaxing days by the pool. The layout / size of the villa provided us (a 3 generation family) the space we desired so not to be in each other’s pockets 24/7. The villa’s facilities were great, nice big bedrooms with comfy beds, walk in wardrobes and loads of drawer space, great kitchen-diner, great bathrooms, lovely lounge and a wonderful pool / sun-bathing / outside eating area.

We all had a great holiday in Florida and have many fond memories; the villa contributed hugely to this and without doubt we would most definitely stay at Lakeside Villa again.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind words – it‘s good to know that not only did you and your family have a great time at Lakeside Villa but also that all our hard work that we put into the maintaining the villa & the information packs we provide to our guests is appreciated. We do love the location of the villa as not only does it have a lovely pool view but with it being in a quiet residential area it gives you a real feel of community about the place – especially during holiday times when local residents decorate their house & front lawns to celebrate Halloween, xmas etc. We are very pleased to hear that our villa helped you all to have a happy memorable holiday & we would love to welcome you all back to Lakeside Villa sometime again in the future.

Country Creek is a lovely tranquil community but is close to all amenities.

FOOD & DRINK – our home is only 2 minutes drive from a 24-hour Walmart Supercenter where you can get just about anything you could ever need - including a self-service kiosk which rents the latest DVDs for you to enjoy in the comfort of your own villa! An Aldi food store is also a few minutes away.

RESTAURANTS of every description can be found within 15 minutes along Highway 192 – Italian, Chinese, Japanese, Indian, Mexican and more! Also favourites such as Denny’s, Steak’n’Shake, Fat Boys’ BBQ, Red Lobster, Ponderosa and Logan's Roadhouse Grill.

WALT DISNEY WORLD theme parks are an easy 15 minutes drive away – so in the summer you can come home for a mid-afternoon cooling swim before heading back to the parks for their evening fireworks display – bliss!

SEAWORLD, UNIVERSAL STUDIOS and INTERNATIONAL DRIVE are great places to visit on your non-Disney days and are only 20-25 minutes away.

COCOA BEACH is the closest beach, just 80 minutes drive away, where you’ll find white sandy beaches, lovely seafood restaurants and a huge Ron Jon surf shop! Kennedy Space Centre is also just a few miles away along the same coast.

DAYTONA BEACH – ‘The World’s Most Famous Beach’ - can be reached in 90 minutes and gives you the unique opportunity to actually drive and park your car on the beach! Take a picnic and set it up near the car, or take advantage of the one of the beachfront bars and restaurants (our favourite is Ocean Deck – scare your friends back home with tales of eating gator bites!)

OLD TOWN is the place to be if you love the 1950s era. It’s only 10 minutes drive away – every weekend they have classic car cruises and entertainment (you might even spot an Elvis impersonator!).

DRIVE-IN MOVIE THEATRES are very rare these days but you are only 55 minutes away from Silver Moon Drive In at Lakeland – much cheaper and much more fun than a modern multiplex!
