About Carol Barrie

After running two guest houses at Loch Lomond in Scotland we decided to look for a holiday home in the sun. We loved Florida for the great weather and all that it has to offer. We continue to enjoy family holidays at our home and love having friends and family come to stay.

Carol Barrie purchased this villa in 2004

Why Carol Barrie chose Kissimmee

We spent time looking around different areas when we were buying our home. We wanted somewhere within easy distance of the Parks, shopping and beaches, however we also wanted to have privacy and peace and quiet when we were relaxing at home. We knew the moment that we saw our house that it was the right one for us. The pool is south facing and gets the sun all day long and it is not overlooked. We have spent a great deal of time and money on improvements and it truly feels like a home from home. We also enjoy the many great eating places close by and we can use a local taxi firm if we don't fancy driving.

What makes this villa unique

Location, privacy and peace and quiet were the main reasons we bought this particular house. We are close enough to Disney that we can go home for a break if the weather is really warm and go back to the Parks at night. Many other homes we viewed were overlooked at the pool area, however we enjoy privacy at our pool and have dinner on the lanai in peace and quiet.

Lovely villa, excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Carol’s villa for 2 weeks at the end of February. We had a great time staying in the villa. It is very spacious and well looked after. The neighbourhood is very quiet and well kept. The back of the villa is not overlooked and looks out over a lake across a quiet road. The supermarkets are close and less than a 5 min drive away. They are very convenient on the way back from the Disney parks and great for picking up something for dinner. We didn’t even need to use the ‘back road’ routes as it was a quiet time of year and the main roads were not busy. Carol answered all my questions promptly and was very informative when I spoke to her on the phone before the holiday.

Unfortunately the pool heater broke down while we were there. No matter how well things are maintained, they fail from time to time. However it is true test of customer service in how well issues are dealt with, and Carol passed with flying colours. We reported it faulty one evening, the management company came to check it the next day and arranged for the pool maintenance people to check the heater. They found it unrepairable and therefore Carol needed to arrange for a new one to be installed. This was promptly installed the next day – all very impressive and quickly resolved. For those of you reading this review in the UK, imagine how quickly you could get your boiler replaced if it broke down!

On the subject of pool heaters, we have never experienced one before on an outdoor pool, however they make an amazing difference and heat the water up to a pleasant temperature above the cool February air.

There was good fast internet in the villa.

Overall a great stay and we would definitely stay there again when in Florida and I would recommend this place. Thanks Carol for a great villa.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your lovely review. We are always delighted to hear that our guests have enjoyed their stay at our home, it makes all of the hard work that we do to maintain our home very worthwhile. Delighted you appreciated the area and location of our home. One of the reasons we chose this home was because of the privacy from our pool and covered lanai. We also enjoy the close proximity to supermarkets, restaurants and theme parks. Thanks for being so understanding about the pool heater. It was working perfectly when I stayed a few weeks previous to your stay so I had no concerns about it, however as you mentioned, appliances can fail despite being well maintained. Delighted we managed to have the replacement heater installed and this was down to our excellent management company. Urgent replacements tend to cost slightly more but I felt it essential to have this replaced as soon as possible so that you could enjoy full use of the pool. It was a pleasure to assist you during your booking process and hope to welcome you back to stay sometime soon. Best wishes, Carol & Family.

Excellent accommodations and location to Disney parks

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the villa was indeed exceptional, as was our experience with the owner. Carol was highly responsive to all of our questions. The house was perfect for our needs and provided a much needed respite from the parks each night during a high crowd level week at Disney. We enjoyed the immaculate space, the fully equipped kitchen, and the game room (our 2 boys especially enjoyed the pool table!). Although we opted for the heat for the pool, we were so busy at the parks that we never had a chance to use it. That was a risk we were willing to take, just in case any park touring plans changed. We were especially appreciative of the provided "locals" directions to Disney - few traffic lights and very little traffic! We were back at the house in under 20 minutes from the parks, and in less than 15 minutes from Animal Kingdom. The only negative for us was the extremely soft mattress in the master bedroom (we tend to require a bit more back support to avoid sore mornings). That does not keep us from highly recommending this villa, however. It is perfect for folks who want to enjoy convenient access to Disney, but with the benefit of an inviting escape to regroup each evening. Thank you, Carol, for a wonderful stay!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Kathi for your lovely review. Delighted you enjoyed your time at our home and it was a pleasure to assist you. We love the location of our home and appreciate the ease of travel to and from all of the Parks. Much as we enjoy spending time making the most of everything on offer in the local area, it's always lovely to come home and relax for a while. Sorry you found the master bed to be too soft. It's very difficult to get a suitable firmness of bed that suits everyone. I have had guests write and tell me "it was the most comfortable bed we have slept in". Pleased to hear your family enjoyed the games room, we have had lots of fun over the years with pool tournaments. Hope to have you come back and stay with us sometime soon, best wishes, Carol & Family.

Beautiful home close to Disney!

  • 5 of 5

Our family chose the busiest time of the season (the Christmas holiday), to travel to Florida. Staying at this beautiful home most certainly allowed us time to relax and feel like we were in a "home away from home". The house is totally spacious and clean and the pool was a pleasantly welcoming "gem". Not to mention that the weather was like heaven coming from temperatures of 20 degrees to 80 degrees plus we took every advantage we could of the pool! We didn't use the game room much, as we wanted to be outside as much as possible, however I can certainly see it being a great place for the youngsters to hang out, its fully equipped with a pool table, video games and more! Having the washer and dryer available to do our laundry was also an added perk. Overall, the property was perfect for us and I would certainly recommend it to others. Also, this property is conveniently located close to theme parks, restaurants and shopping.
