In the evenings, the sunset is spectacular reflected in the lakes, and to the east, you can see several fireworks shows over the trees. Insurance is available, starting at $49 per stay - this eliminates the refundable deposit fee. Please inquire if interested.

About Steve & Laree

We have been married over 31 years - YAY! We live in San Diego, which we love, and we own other long-term rentals in AZ. We dabbled in the vacation rental zone back in 2006, and we love it! The best part is hearing the happy feedback from our guests! We just wish we had more time to get out to our favorite home-away-from home in Florida!

Steve & Laree purchased this villa in 2006

Why Steve & Laree chose Kissimmee

Because it's the best!!!!

What makes this villa unique

Cozy, comfortable, location, private, lakeside, cleanliness... the list goes on!

Guestbook comments from the owner

I have just returned from a wonderful, busy week in Orlando. Laree, the owner had provided plenty of information as regards the villa including the best route from the airport. The villa was as promised in a quiet gated community, immaculately kept. The villa itself had 4 bedrooms and a large lounge/dining area, a big hall, garage and a pool under a lanai. We asked for pool heating as it was only March and the pool was fabulous. The villa overlooks the lake and my husband would go fishing every morning and caught many big bass. The neighborhood alligator was around and kept watch over the fishing activities! There was lots of wildlife to see. The washing machine was very useful as were the ample amount of towels . You definitely need a car if you are staying here. The parks are nearby but roads are busy and it is still quite a drive wherever your go. Publix is a short drive away as is Walmart. The villa was a quiet haven at the end of the day. We were lucky with the weather, we only had one day of rain. We would certainly recommend this villa. Rental prices were very reasonable and the deposit was returned very quickly.

Excellent Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

Perfection location! Close to everything, with your little piece of tranquility which includes a view of your private pool overlooking the lake with a picturesque sunset, you can be busy or just chill. The home was exactly as shown, clean, spacious & everything you needed to enjoy your holiday...very comfortable ;) Thank you Laree, it was so nice to have access to you If needed, & for you to check in to make sure we arrived safe & all was in order. Amazing vacation, would recommend in a heart beat! Felt like part of the family, hoping to re-book next year, Cheers Brenda :)

Loved this place!!

  • 5 of 5

Our first time to Florida, couldn't have picked a better place to stay! Plenty of space for everyone and privacy as well. All the amenities of home, but way more fun!! Right on the water with beautiful sunsets that you could watch right from the pool, or living room that completely opens up to pool area.

Everything that we needed to make our stay effortless, and so enjoyable. Would book this place again in a heartbeat! Highly, highly recommend this wonderful home away from home!!

You guys did an amazing job!

Wonderful stay for our family reunion

  • 5 of 5

There is so much to love about this home! Our first evening there allowed us the opportunity to view an Orlando, Winter lightening storm through the large 3 paneled sliding door. This was a favorite feature of the home for us. Each morning we would slide it open to the crisp breeze and beautiful view of Sunset Lake that sits directly behind the private pool. It almost feels like an indoor/outdoor living area when the doors are wide open. Thanks to the screen enclosure we often left them open. Since the screen completely encompasses the whole back yard, we were able to relax poolside while grilling out, reading a book or sipping our morning coffee, without the bother of unwanted critters. Even with all the doors and windows closed the many windows and open floor plan let in natural light all day long!

The whole neighborhood is peaceful. It was a wonderful place to start and end each day of our trip, quietly watching the birds floating and playing in the lake, while we did some floating of our own in the heated pool. A definite perk especially at the end of a long day at the busy amusement parks.

In addition to floating in the pool, we loved relaxing in the master soaker bath tub. And then sinking in to our cushy beds each night.

The kitchen is well put together. It has all the essentials and more. We found this to be the case throughout. There were many bath and pool towels. The linens are soft and cozy, as were the pillows. We couldn't travel with our own pillows this time and thankfully we didn't need to. The ones at this home were very comfortable.

We cannot say enough about the good care Laree and Steve took of us. They made sure we had everything we needed! They left clear and helpful tips regarding the home, the area, local attractions, even regarding the best routes to take when driving.

It was the perfect place for our party of 6. Each couple had their own bathroom and plenty of privacy. We were taken away with how open it felt while still allowing us to feel like we had our own space. The pictures, though well done, couldn't capture just how wonderful it all really was. We loved our stay here!!

And that makes two!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this property and we will be back! The only thing we will change next time is we won't go to the parks 6 days straight. We have not just sat around and relaxed, both times! The owners are great and helpful and they get your deposit back quickly. Give them a try.

Excellant vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

Pleased the house was as described in the listing. The house was clean and the the rooms were spacious. Enjoyed that we could take our small family dog along. Owners were very easy to deal with and their tips about getting to the parks were great. Enjoyed being able to come home to our private home after a long day in the park. It was great to be able to go swimming at night, unlike in a hotel.

plenty of space to relax

  • 5 of 5

nicely located property accessible to highways, theme parks, many dining options. the home is well cared for, spacious, comfortable; and your stay will be a relaxing retreat from the hustle bustle of busy days at the local attractions. Bedding, furniture, patio chairs are comfortable and relaxing. enjoying the pool lakeside you will notice a comfortable breeze that you will not get at other properties that abut other homes or land. the gated neighborhood is quiet, walk-able around the 2 lakes, and has a nice fishing platform where we caught a couple bass and regularly saw the lone gator in the lake. communication with the homeowner was excellent. we enjoyed full days at each Busch Gardens Tampa; Sea World Orlando; and Aquatica water park Orlando. also an easy hour-ish drive east to Cocoa Beach/the Atlantic coast. home is closely located to family dining options Bonefish Grill, Bahama Breeze, Carrabba's; and Flipper's Pizza is good for dine in or carry out options. A good balance of days out enjoying Florida attractions, and resting and relaxing at this comfortable home.
