Property type house

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6) solar/electric pool heat - not overlooked

This is a spacious 3 bedroom property, in the Estates of the Wilderness, a quiet rural community in Kissimmee close to Disney. For those who want some relaxation time, and a bit more than a basic rental, this house has all the touches.

The info in the following sections goes over the facilities and area, below is how the house is set up. We have two living areas ( house has central adjustable A/C). The main family room has French doors out to the deck, so very relaxing. The second living room has the view of the front garden.

We have cable, TV, video and DVD Players - WIRELESS AND HIGH SPEED INTERNET - a computer station complete with computer. The kitchen is fully equipped, coffee pot, blender etc all modern appliances, ice maker and has a breakfast bar and chairs - a good spot to enjoy the family breakfast.

Kitchen, bathrooms, and hall entrance floors are all tiled. We have a separate formal dining area, but I think everyone eats out by the pool! The utility room is under A/C -not in the garage - full size washer and dryer, hanging racks etc, plus plenty of room in the garage for storage, line drying and of course space for your car.

The garage has an auto door to make life easier.

The master bedroom is set up as a king, French doors out to the pool, large walk in closet and the bathroom has twin vanities, toilet, corner sunken bath and walk in shower. The second bedroom is a queen, again a large closet and the third bedroom is a twin - 2 beds, large closet - usual dressers and nightstands etc.

The second bathroom has a door out to the pool, very handy thru the day, a full size tub, shower, toilet and vanity.

All of our doors out to the pool have pool safety alarms. The house has a home alarm. Our home is managed by a professional management company, always at hand for any assistance. They will call you once you have arrive to check all is ok.

Now to the area where you will spend a lot of time, the pool and deck. When built, we extended this to the upgraded version, this allows for loungers, table and chairs, BBQ and extra seating - even a relaxing garden glider swing seat.

Our guests in the past re book the home, they tell us it is because of the pool, the deck, and the location - quiet, out of the hub of the parks, but great access to all the attractions and there is plenty of things for them to come back to to enjoy.

We spend a lot of time at the house too - keeping the house fresh, and well furnished. The pool can be heated electric at a charge, or solar panels on the roof - ideal for mid March thru May and October thru mid November as free. We are on an extended lot , so a large amount of yard, trees and natural scrub surrounds the property. We get asked a lot about the parks etc, so hopefully the info below will help.

All of Disney's Theme Parks - Magic Kingdom, Epcot, MGM Studios, Animal Kingdom), Universal Studios, Universal's Islands of Adventure, and Sea World are a short drive from Poinciana 25/40 Minutes, The Beaches, East Coast - Melbourne and Cocoa are a 1 hour drive, West Coast - St, Petersburg and Clearwater are a 2 hour drive, Kennedy Space Center is also a 1 Hour Drive, as is Busch Gardens and Tampa Bay area.

Cirque Du Soleil, Discovery Cove, Disney Quest, Disney, Pleasure Island, Blizzard Beach, Gatorland are all close by - 30 mins.

Perhaps visit The Holy Land Experience, Kennedy Space Center, Ripley's Believe It or Not, Universal City Walk, Fantasy of Flight, the Fun Spot, Green Meadows Petting Farm, Guinness World Records Experience, Lakeridge Winery and Vineyards, Disney's Wilderness Preserve, Showcase of Citrus, Silver Springs, Sky Ventures of Florida, Sterling Casino Lines, the Titanic Exhibition, and Wonderworks are some of the many of attractions you can visit thru you stay.

Been there done that

  • 3 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the house. It was tidy, well maintained and had a great pool.

We did have a couple issues:

1. The drive wore on us after a few days. With tired kids, it is a long haul in the morning and home from Disney and Universal. By day 8 we were done, and our next rental will be much closer, even if it means spending a little more.

2. I read from other posts that the wifi is an issue and we experienced the worst of it. The first and last day of our visit was the worst with no wifi at all; very frustrating as we tried to access our boarding passes. I would recommend the owners spend some time figuring out what is going on.

3. It's the little stuff that really matters. Before we left I received an email highlighting that we need to bring our own toilet paper, paper towel, trash bags, laundry soap, dishwashing soap, regular soap, and condiments. I agree with most except toilet paper, dishwashing soap, and garbage bags. We are supplying for the next guests because it is impossible to buy small enough quantities of those supplies.

Perfect choice

  • 5 of 5

The pictures of the house do no justice. Upon walking in the house we were very happy with what we saw. It was more than what we were expecting and loved it. It was so nice to be able to come "home" after a long day at the Disney parks and Seaworld to a private pool plus room for the whole family to stretch out. Definitely will keep this home in mind for our next Disney trip. Thank you so much for letting us use your home for our vacation.

Perfect house for the family!

  • 5 of 5

We chose this rental because of its close location to family. It was also a manageable drive to the typical Orlando destinations. The house was in a nice, quiet neighborhood, well equipped for just about anything a vacationer could need: coolers for daytrips, games, porta-cribs, pool & toys, wifi, laundry. The house was clean, all 4 beds were comfortable, kitchen well-equipped for saving money to eat in. (groceries a short drive away) We did have an issue with the wifi reception(- normally not an issue since we were on vacation but had to take care of some work related issues.) The owner who lives nearby quickly responded and helped remedy the issue! Since we rented in December, we requested to add heat to the pool. We did not have control of this temp and it didn't warm up enough for us since the evening temps dipped so low-- would not recommend this for winter rentals. We highly recommend this rental!

golf vacation

  • 3 of 5

It is a nice place and we appreciate the tranquillity and the pool. Everything was perfect in the house except for the matress in the master chamber that could be change because he have many years of use and the chair in the kitchen need to be pad.

See you next year,

Guy and Lucie

Quiet road for a busy area

  • 4 of 5

We had 5 adults in our party and was very comfortable in this home. Big closets and plenty of dresser space. TV in family room and master bedroom only. Would have been nice, for our group, to have had tv's in other bedrooms. Kitchen was well equipped for most of our needs. This is a very busy, high traffic area, but very quiet subdivision. House is at end of cul-de-sac. Grocery store, pharmacy, and several fast food options very close by and plenty of other dining and shopping options a little further out. I would have liked to ride my bike, but other than neighborhood riding or on sidewalk of very busy Pleasant Hill road, there wasn't a lot of options. Traffic was my biggest issue with this area. Best travel time was after 9 am and before 2pm. Was going to run out to grocery store one evening at 7pm and had to turn around and go home because traffic was backed up for miles. The weather was unusually cool, so we didn't use the pool, but did enjoy sitting out on patio. I would recommend this rental with the caveat regarding traffic. Some people would not find that an issue, but for me, it was a factor.
