Overview

Kissimmee Villa Rental Photos and Description

4 bedroom, 2 bathroom, 2 living/dining areas, games room with pool

Just imagine waking up to that view every morning. Our luxury Florida villa by the lake is a 4 bedroom/2 bathroom villa with its own private pool overlooking a beautiful lake in Kissimmee just minutes from Walt Disney World and the rest of Central Florida's many attractions.

The house is all on one level and has two large separate living/dining areas, a games room and a large pool with a covered lanai (gazebo) where you will always find a bit of shade if you want it. The back of the property faces West and the pool is in sunlight all day from about 10 o'clock every morning until sunset. See our photos and video (further down the page).

The villa is close to all the major attractions including Walt Disney World, SeaWorld and Universal Studios and set in a peaceful community with a beautiful lakeside vista, just minutes from restaurants, bars and shops and 30 minutes from the airport.

It has four good sized bedrooms and two bathrooms (one en-suite/cabana). The master bedroom has a King size (6 foot 4 inch) bed and is en-suite with direct access to the pool. The remaining three bedrooms are two Queen sized (5 foot) and one twin (2 x 3 foot 3 in) and share the family bathroom. All bedrooms have new flat-screen TVs.

There are two large separate living/dining rooms; one formal and one family. The family room overlooks the pool and has a 46 inch flat screen HD TV with 100+ channels and Blu-Ray player.

The large 26 foot by 14 foot pool can be heated if required (additional charge) and looks out onto a large lake. Guests can fish in the lake on a 'catch and release' basis and we have a couple of fishing rods for guests use. We can also offer BBQ grill rental (additional charge).

The garage has been converted into a Games room with pool table, electronic dart board, TV with DVD player plus sofas and a portable air conditioning unit.

There is Air conditioning throughout plus ceiling fans in all the bedrooms and the family room.

We have installed a large capacity safe (securely bolted to the floor) with room for cameras and small laptops.

All our guests have access to free high speed internet and free local/national telephone calls to the US and Canada.

Also free use of baby equipment including stroller, high chair and travel cot.

About Steve & Wendy Downs

In 1991 we had a 'once in a lifetime visit' to Florida, and stayed in a private villa. We loved it!. On the way back to the airport we decided it wasn't going to be a 'once in a lifetime' visit - we enjoyed it too much. As soon as we got home we booked to return the following year and have been returning ever since.

As we head towards retirement we wanted a place in the sun to escape the English winters and Florida was the obvious choice. We currently live in the beautiful but cold Yorkshire Dales.

Steve & Wendy Downs purchased this villa in 2013

Why Steve & Wendy Downs chose Kissimmee

In March 2013 we had another family holiday in the Orlando area. We stayed on Eagle Pointe for the second time, and decided that it was the perfect place to have a home of our own. When we viewed this villa, we immediately fell in love with it!

We chose Eagle Pointe because of its location, easy access to local amenities and its family friendly community.

We chose the villa because it was a good size (over 1,900 sq. ft), had four good sized bedrooms, two separate living/dining rooms but mainly because of the view and large pool and covered gazebo/lanai.

What makes this villa unique

From first thing in the morning as the sun rises over the lake, and the hot air balloons drift by towards Walt Disney World, until the evening when the sunsets are awe inspiring, the tranquillity will soothe and relax you.

For wildlife lovers, you will be amazed by the variety of wildlife to be found around the lake and in the nearby Shingle Creek Regional Park. Everything from sandhill cranes, ospreys, bald eagles, vultures, ibis, herons and egrets to turtles, squirrels and the occasional alligator.

If you like fishing, our lake is amply stocked with large bass, gar, carp and catfish.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Had an absolutely fantastic time in your super villa. The villa has been perfect for our stay with everything we could possibly need plus the fabulous pool. Loved our holiday here in Florida especially as it was with David and Jane - just a perfect holiday.

Fabulous well equipped villa in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday at Florida villa by the lake. We are a family of 5: 2 adults, and our children aged 10,6 and 4: we had more than enough room as it is so spacious!

We arrived late at night, the instructions from the airport were invaluable as our phones didn't pick up signal initially! We found the villa and worked the locks with ease as per instructions.

As soon as we arrived we all had a look around and our children were beside themselves with excitement at the pool. The rooms were lovely, our little girls chose the Mickey room and loved the Disney touches! Our big boy loved having a big bed to himself!

Up at 4.40 am we did convince them to wait till 7am to test the pool!!!! The pool is a lovely size for a family such as ours, it was clean, equipped and a lovely environment to eat breakfast at whilst watching out for birds (we wanted to spot an alligator but didn't!!)

We used the juicer to make fresh orange juice which the children thought was fabulous.

We used the cooler everyday and filled it with frozen water ready for when we got back to the car after a hard day at Disney!

The view from the villa is stunning. We thought it was perfectly located for all parks and for shopping, it was quiet and yet close to all amenities.

The rooms are all tastefully decorated, there are plenty of towels although with an easy to use washer and dried I kept on top of the washing easily.

I can't think of any negatives at all- the only one for us is that we were so busy we barely used the villa: in fact on our last day we realised we had barely been in the pool so cancelled our dinner reservation to chill out by the pool instead.

It's safe to say we are now Disney addicts, we will definitely go back...

Once we have recovered from this adventure!

Thankyou Steve and Wendy!

Love the Gough family!

Great villa in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Loved everything about this fantastic villa. It has all the comforts of home and much more, including spectacular views over the lake to wake up to. The location is just a short drive from the main attractions but far enough away to be relaxing and peaceful. From our first contact with Steve and Wendy, they felt like old friends and were quick to answer questions and give advice. Would recommend this villa, we will be back!

Wonderful Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous villa, very clean tidy and comfortable. We felt 'at home' straight away.

Our intention was to come on holiday to relax after 5 long years of hard work starting a business and this trip was everything we wanted and more.

This is an ideal location. It is very close to Publix, Walmart & Target and is close enough to the attractions if that is your thing!

We have been to Florida a number of times, primarily South Florida but this was our first Villa rental. Off the back of this trip we have decided it is the way to go. This was so easy to book, and so easy to feel at home.

The pool is a great size and very clean. Nice outdoor area to sit and relax in.

No loud pool pumps and/or Air con.

We will be booking again very soon as we cannot wait to come back.

Thanks for a wonderful restful holiday

Best Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much in helping make this the most relaxing Florida vacation we have ever took! We stayed 13 nights and wished we could stay longer. Each child enjoyed having their own room and loved the private pool. My husband took advantage of the private lake and went fishing almost every day. I went fishing on a few occasions and caught a total of 14 fish, 13 bass and a gar! 4 of my bass were over 7 pounds and one weighed a whopping 12 pounds. This vacation made us realize there is more than running around to all the parks and we've already decided that as soon as we get out dates for next summer's vacation we are going to hopefully book another 2 weeks at this house and not visit any of the major parks, just relax! Again, thank you!!

Everything you need for a family holiday

  • 4 of 5

After a 9 hour flight and 2 hour trawl through immigration the villa was a welcome sight - clean, well presented and by a lake!

The villa is situated on a quiet estate and conveniently located for restaurants, shops, theme parks etc. We found the information manual provided by the owners to be very useful.

Our stay was principally golf in the morning followed by a refreshing dip in the pool then theme parks in the afternoon. Evenings were spent relaxing poolside (with the great view overlooking the lake) which is partially covered so when it rains you can still comfortably sit outside.

For those planning on playing golf I would recommend the website golfnow.com - the green fees we paid were considerably cheaper than going direct to the course.

In my opinion the rental charge was good value for money, included everything you could reasonably expect and I would recommend the villa to family/friends thinking of a stay in Kissimmee

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and for the tips about the golf green fee site. Will be very useful for future guests wanting to play on one of the many golf courses just a few minutes drive away.

Lovely spacious family villa in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this villa as a family of 3 adults and 1 child. There was lots of room for everyone to relax and have their own space. It is very well equipped with plenty of plates, cutlery, large dishwasher, washing machine, towels, fast wifi... everything you will need!

The location is lovely and quiet with a stunning view out the back over a lake. We really enjoyed observing the local wildlife and it's a perfect spot to relax, with the sun on the patio for most of the day.

It's a 5 minute drive to the nearest supermarket, and 10 minutes from lots of restaurants and other shops. It's only about half an hour to all the main theme parks like Disney, Seaworld and Universal with very easy routes to navigate.

Dealing with the owners of the villa was a pleasure, with plenty of contact before and after our stay which was very reassuring. The property managers also live very close-by, so any problems can be sorted really quickly.

The only very minor niggle I had with the villa was the pool area feels like it could do with an update, and doesn't quite match the standards indoors. The patio furniture is a bit 'plasticky' and the floor of the pool was a little grubby in areas. However, the all-day sunshine and beautifully heated pool made up for that!

I would definitely recommend this villa to anyone wanting to stay in Kissimmee. We enjoyed our stay thoroughly - thank you!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback, we are glad you enjoyed your stay and liked our villa. Our management company were impressed by how clean and tidy you left the villa. Because the patio furniture has to be outside all year round, come rain or shine, like most short-term rental properties in Florida, we have elected to go for Palm Casual tubular patio chairs and loungers. They are a local company and are built to withstand the heat and humidity. The marks on the pool floor are weathering stains from natural minerals in the water and we are looking at ways of removing them. Our management company keep the pool scrupulously clean and the pool chemistry is checked weekly. Hope you come and stay again.
