In the mornings, weather permitting, you can see a lovely sunrise and watch hot air balloons taking off from across the street that float over the homes and lakes located here. 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.

Can't say enough good things about this house

  • 5 of 5

This clean, spacious house was convenient to all the attractions in Orlando. My family has stayed at the resorts, and nearby condos, but this place was by far the best we've experienced visiting the Orlando area. And even more important, our little Papillion Penny was welcomed as well. The best feature by far- the pool- it was great to be able to relax and float in the pool after a day of trekking through Disney or Universal. The owner, Laree, provide us "insider" tips which added to the experience, and she was responsive to all of our inquiries. We will definitely be back in the future.

Wonderful relaxing break - great location

  • 5 of 5

We have just come back from a lovely 3 week stay in this lakeside villa.

The villa is very comfortable with all of the necessary amenities. We had plenty of indoor space to relax but spent most of our time by the pool on the sun loungers - soaking up the sun in the morning and chilling in the evening. The lake is a wonderful backdrop with loads of wildlife to see.

The gated community is very quite and felt safe.

A big plus is the location to the Disney parks and other attractions. From villa door to walking up Main Street MK was around 30 mins or less. The villa is also generally 20-30 mins from most other attractions and shops.

We would definitely recommend this villa and would love to return. Communication with the owners was excellent and they are very easy to deal with and offered loads of useful information.

So in love with this house!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This place has it all!!! It was super clean and a really good size!! The pool was so lovely. Because it was so close to the parks, we watched the fireworks from the comfort of the pool with a drink in our hands!! So relaxing!!!!

My husband loves fishing, and he caught so many fish on the dock on the opposite side of the lake! He used bits of bread to catch the little bluegill and used them to catch the bigger bass!! And he caught quite a lot!!

The parks are very close and convenient to get to, and the community the house is in is very safe and quiet.

I would absolutely recommend this to my friends and family. It's the only place we will stay when we visit!!

Perfect villa in the perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Renting this villa was a pleasure from beginning to end, Laree was so easy to talk to , it was like talking to a friend. The villa itself was exactly as advertised in a lovely quiet location but only a 10 minute drive to Disney. It was comfortable and spacious, plenty enough room for our three generation family of eight.

The pool area was so nice it was quite hard to drag the kids away to the theme parks, the adults loved the lake view with all the visiting wildlife, we saw sand cranes, egrets, herons, osprey fishing, an armadillo and raccoons, all from our sun loungers.

If you want the best of both worlds, Disney on the doorstep with a veritable wildlife refuge to return to you can't beat this villa . Thank you Laree for all your help, we will recommend your lovely home to friends and family, and anyone else who will listen!

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 :)
