Our beautiful, luxurious townhouse is located in the gated community of Venetian Bay Villages, known to some as the 'Diamond Community' of Kissimmee! With a guardhouse that is manned 24/7 and additional security patroling the area, Venetian Bay is one of the safest places to stay.
Our townhouse features a larger model refrigerator, a ceramic-top self cleaning oven (don't worry, special cleaning products are supplied) and a heavy duty, large capacity washer/dryer that takes FULL loads of laundry! The living room has a new flat screen HD TV with DVR.
Further Details: In the kitchen you will find not only the usual pots, pans, etc. but also a toaster oven, grill pans, and all sorts of gadgets. A waste disposal is located in the sink. All linens, blankets, sheets, and pillows are supplied.
Extras: In the lockable pantry, there's a Smoothie machine and a slow cooker among the other items you'll find there. Feel free to use any of the products in there.
We're in building 12 which is just a short walk to the clubhouse and pool. In the clubhouse you can join the 'Snowbirds' in the lobby for a game of cards, check the weather or the stock market (if you dare!) in the lounge, grab a cup of coffee from the kitchen, workout in the gym, watch a movie in the theater, or take the kids to the game room. Outside you can relax in a rocking chair on the lanai overlooking the pool or in a lounge chair on the deck overlooking the lake. The clubhouse pool is open from 7AM to 11PM so you can go swimming day or night. For the more ambitious, you can join some of the many people who walk, jog, or run throughout the complex. Or get a group together for basketball, tennis, or volleyball.
For your entertainment we have board games, books, a variety of balls, tennis rackets, pool toys, Swimmies for the little ones, pool toys & a small library of CDs and DVDs for children & adults.
If you are still looking for excitement, all the theme parks are located 10-30 minutes away. There are many beaches on both the east and west coast, the nearest is only 1 hour away. A visit to Kennedy Space Center is well worth the trip. Did you know that Florida is the home of the first winery in the United Stated (or so we've been told)? Lakeridge Winery in Clermont, a 40 minute ride, features art and jazz on many weekends. Spend an afternoon at Tohopekaliga Lake and Park or take a trip to the Keys. There's so much to do, you'll never get bored!

Tony and Lenore live in New York but try to go to Florida whenever they get the chance. With two grandsons who love everything Disney and other family members living in southern Florida, Venetian Bay Villages was the ideal spot for us.
Lenore has been a member of the Rules & Regulations Committee since its inception.
We chose to purchase our townhouse in this area after several of our friends purchased units here. It's close proximity to the airport, theme parks, shopping malls, golfing, fishing, and wineries make this a decision we've never regretted. Having enough room for our family to visit is one of the biggest advantages for us. I'm sure it will be the same for your's.
