This snap of the family was taken whilst enjoying our recent vacation in Kissimmee. We were there to celebrate our 25th anniversary and what better place to do that than the best holiday destination in the world. The whole family loves to visit Florida because there is something for everyone. My son and I particularly like to spend time golfing and with the excellent selection of courses available there is always a new challenge. My wife loves the wonderful Disney experience and the superb service standards and my daughter just likes to shop until she drops in the huge malls with amazing prices compared the the UK.
Whilst we are originally from Wales, we have lived in Cheshire England for more than 20 years. We have vacationed in Florida 12 years or longer, so we thought it was time to buy our own home from home. We have called it 'Cartref' which is 'Welsh' for home.
To ensure it was our home from home we furnished it to the highest possible standard, so that we would really look forward to staying there. I love the big 52 lcd TV, my son loves the games room and my wife and daughter enjoy relaxing by the pool. The home is so well positioned just a couple of miles from the 192 and 'World drive'.
