About Phil Ginn

We are a family who have enjoyed several holidays in Florida as the children grew up. Over the years, as small children they started out chasing Tigger's autograph at Disney and more recently as teenagers spend all day riding the biggest coasters. We've always stayed in villas when visiting Florida and enjoyed the space as well as the heated private pool. It's great visiting the theme parks and water parks in Orlando. Some days though, it's great to chill, splash around in the pool, a cold beer from the fridge and top up the tan!

Phil Ginn purchased this villa in 2014

Why Phil Ginn chose Kissimmee

We wanted a villa close to Disney and the main 192 with all the bars, restaurants and shopping. We also wanted a villa that was south facing so that we could enjoy the sun all day long, regardless of the time of year. We were looking for somewhere with a bit of privacy, not right on top of another villa and this one has no rear neighbours, overlooking woodland. The villa will provide our family with holidays in the sun and theme park fun for many years to come. The layout with 5 bedrooms including two master bedrooms works perfectly for us and our family as it expands in the years to come. Now also with an extended pool deck for even more space around the pool.

What makes this villa unique

The south facing pool overlooking woodland is peaceful and relaxing but close to the action. The bonus/loft TV room and games room are great for all the kids big & small.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have just returned from a 2 week family holiday in Florida staying in this beautiful villa. We arrived very late at night and immediately felt at home, the villa had all of the amenities we could have wanted during our stay. It is situated in a fantastic location, being within 20 minutes of the Disney parks and 10 minutes of a large variety of restaurants, however the neighbourhood was very peaceful and it was nice to return in the evening and have a dip in the pool after a long day. The villa has been very tastefully decorated, all of the rooms are large with en-suites and walk in wardrobes and was big enough to feel spacious despite there being 9 of us. The children loved the mickey theme room and having the 2nd living room was great to watch cartoons in the morning while the adults relaxed with a coffee by the pool. The owners were fantastic on the lead up to the holiday responding very quickly to any enquiries and made sure we had everything we needed. We will definitely be suing this property again and would recommend it to everyone who wants to have the holiday of a lifetime. Thank you Phil.

Great, relaxing place to spend a vacation

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here before and will probably stay here again. Close to everything one needs...parks, food. horseback riding, kayaking, even did a little indoor skydiving. What else could one ask for. Very clean and comfortable.

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of eleven had planned for years to go to Orlando, and I was nervous that everything go as well as we hoped. This house was perfect for our needs - very clean, well laid out, the pool faced the woods so it was very private, and the street was very quiet. Disney was farther than 8 minutes, but still very convenient. Highly recommend!!

Outstanding Property

  • 5 of 5

I am reluctant to give my real impression of this property because it will only serve to make it more desirable to rent and more difficult to book when we come down next time. This home is fantastic. The pool is heated from the spa. The house was clean. We weren't missing anything. What a nice place to stay. Every bedroom has a flat screen TV. There are two family rooms. One on the first floor and one on the second floor. There are many lounge chairs out by the pool area. Probably enough for everyone. There was for us anyway. Thank you Phil for offering such a nice place to stay just minutes from the theme parks.

Amazing Rental! Close to Disney and perfect for a family big or small!

  • 5 of 5

We had a large family vacation to Disney. Enjoyed our stay so very much. The pool was perfect for the adults and kids, we were a short Drive to Disney, and we had plenty of room to eat dinner as a family and hang out. Phil was super responsive to emails and easy to work with. We will rent again when we travel to the area! Thank you so so so much!

Fabulous Find

  • 5 of 5

We looked on multiple sites trying to find a suitable rental for our four generations of family and knew immediately when we saw Phil and Kim's property it was the one for us. There was plenty of space for my granddaughters to play without disturbing the other adults. The trip to Disney was brief thanks to the short cut the owners provided in the information packet. This home had everything we needed and the pool was delightfully warm. The spa jets soothed great-grandmother's aches. The dining area was large enough to handle our group of 9. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes and pots and pans and is laid out to easily allow three people to work at once in the space. The bedrooms were cozy and provided the alone space for everyone. The upstairs entertainment area quickly became the sports TV while billiard lessons occurred in the game room. The unlimited internet access was so valuable when downloading almost 200 pictures our final evening. We can't thank you enough for opening this beautiful home up for guests like us. We had a very memorable time!
