SERENDIPITY AT INDIAN CREEK - ORLANDO INSIDER VACATIONS
Imagine coming home at the end of an exhilarating day at the theme parks...
You grab a refreshing drink from the fridge, flake out on the sofa in the outdoor living area right by the pool and reminisce about all the amazing things you did that day.
The kids are splashing around in the pool, you have your feet up. Totally relaxed.
Memories made, job done!
Serendipity at Indian Creek offers all the comforts of home and then some. We call it laid back luxury - all the high quality amenities to make it special, but laid back so you feel comfortable enough to just kick back and relax.
We really do have everything you could think of to put on your wish-list, even a Tesla Charger for our guests traveling to Orlando with a Tesla! Let us show you how a vacation with us could be the perfect choice for you and your family...
❤️ LOCATION! LOCATION! ❤️
We're a mere 4 miles from Disney's Animal Kingdom! It's so effortless to make a quick trip home during the day for a cooling swim or lunch. Cranky kids stuck in traffic don't exist :)
We have a terrific shortcut we can share with you that uses the Disney back roads - just two sets of lights and you're right there in the heart of the magic.
The great location means you can easily head back in the evening for the spectacular fireworks too. Or stand at the end of the driveway and catch them there instead. Not quite the same though!
You'll find plenty of restaurants and stores within a few minutes of the house. We'll share some of our hidden gems with you too.
Universal Studios is just 20 minutes away and the rest of the endless attractions are all within easy reach.
Everything you need really is right on your door step.
❤️ KICK BACK IN THE POOLSIDE LIVING AREA ❤️
You'll be spending lots of time out by the pool. It's just the perfect place to make the most of that wonderful outdoor Florida lifestyle.
Kick back and relax on the rattan patio furniture or watch a movie by the pool on the 42 inch Smart HDTV. You'll find complimentary Netflix too and the TV is internet ready with 200mbps lightening speed.
There's a gas grill, so the guys can take care of dinner while the girls sink into the hot tub and let the soothing jets take away the aches of all that walking around the parks.
❤️ PRIVATE SWIMMING POOL ❤️
The kids can squeal away in the pool while you just lay back and soak up the sunshine on the luxurious padded rattan sun loungers and recliners. Drift away and dream.
The whole backyard is surrounded by a whimsical themed fence so you have complete privacy and are not overlooked from any direction.
The pool and sun deck are caged with a fine mesh to keep the bugs out and let the sunshine and breeze in.
For the protection of the little ones there's a safety fence separating all access areas to the pool and, as an added precaution, all patio doors are alarmed. If you don't have children with you, you can turn them off.
❤️ YOU'LL LOVE THE LIGHTING AT NIGHT ❤️
You'll thoroughly enjoy relaxing out by the pool in the evenings, so we've added feature lighting to the whole backyard.
It gives you the perfect atmosphere to unwind and relax and share precious times. Sip a glass of wine while the kids are safely tucked up in bed sound asleep. Or happily playing in the game room.
The pool also has a great underwater lighting system too that gently changes color. Just perfect for your evening swim.
❤️ REJUVENATE IN THE HOT TUB ❤️
You'll sink back and relax and feel the heat as the bubbling jets take away all your aches of the day.
It's hard work having fun you know!
But you'll soon be rejuvenated and ready to do it all again the next day.
❤️ SPACIOUS LIVING - SEATING FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY ❤️
We know vacations are all about spending precious time together.
Everyone loves to kick back together and the open plan living area has been created with your whole family in mind. There's a large three seat sofa, a reclining love seat, two rocking and reclining armchairs, a cozy corner unit and 2 ottomans. There's even 2 extra tiny rocking chairs for the kiddos.
The Bose surround sound system perfectly enhances the huge 70inch HDTV so you can enjoy watching one of over 300 DVDs we provide.
You can never see too many Disney classics!
There's complimentary Netflix too. And a fully upgraded HD cable package with hundreds of channels. The 70 inch TV in the living area and the 42 inch TV outside by the pools are both internet ready smart TVs, so you can surf away.
❤️ AWESOME CONNECTIVITY ❤️
We know these days virtually all the family want to use free WiFi, so we have the best internet we can get. Complimentary lightening speed 5G 200mbps wifi.
PLUS we have "whole house echo", which means you get a great signal no matter where you are and numerous people can connect at the same time.

About Sarah Elder
Hi there, we are Sarah & Ken Elder. Who knew when we bought our first home in 2005 that it would lead us down the path of a new business venture? We certainly had no idea, but we've now beenn welcoming guests to our beautiful Orlando vacation homes for over a decade and we love every minute. Imagine having a job where you help plan exciting and amazing vacations and get to deal with happy guests all the time! It doesn’t get much better! We spent 28 years living on an idyllic Greek Island where we owned and ran our own restaurant in a busy coastal village. Time eventually caught up with us and we left our beautiful Greek Island with a lifetime of memories. We now split our time between Florida and Ken's ancestral home in Scotland. We spend half the year overlooking a beautiful Scottish Loch and the other half on Disney’s doorstep in Florida. Who says you can’t have your Key Lime Pie and eat it too. And with Pixie Dust sprinkled on top :) We have 3 vacation homes so we have something to suit couples and small families and larger groups or multi-generation families. We have a firm commitment to provide wonderful relaxing and carefree vacations in beautiful homes. We look forward to being part of your vacation memories.
Sarah Elder purchased this House in 2005
Why Sarah Elder chose Four Corners
When we were looking to purchase a home, we had two main thoughts - there had to be a spacious living area where all the family could spend time together and it had to be as close to the Disney parks as possible to enable us to easily pop back home during the day. As soon as we walked into Serendipity, we knew instantly it was 'The One' we had been searching for. We found our piece of paradise and now have the magical theme parks just a stones throw away and also all the endless entertainment and recreational activities Orlando and central Florida has to offer. Fabulous beaches are within an hour's drive, the Florida state parks are just beautiful. Shopping and dining are endless and of course we have the beautiful sunshine which is just the icing on the cake.
What makes this House unique
We love the fact the pool is not overlooked in any direction, the high enclosure ensures complete privacy and it also has a great whimsical beach theme, so it's not just a boring old fence! The lighting around the pool and yard at night make it a great area to relax and unwind after a hectic day and nothing beats watching a movie outside by the pool. The outdoor living area is our favorite place and when we have friends and family staying, we tend to spend all our time out there just relaxing and enjoying time together. Perfect!

Beautiful house, perfect location, so organized and has everything you could possibly need. This place made our vacation that much better and easier on us. Just shocked at hour setup and prepared this house was for us. We have 2 little boys and couldn’t ask for anything more!
Beautiful Home, Excellent Service!
Spent 5 nights at this wonderful home this past April with the grandparents and 3 kids in tow. It was phenomenal! The hot tub was clean and running when we arrived and I think my wife and I soaked in it each night after walking Disney. We had a couple of minor service issues during our stay (routine stuff - power outage momentarily) and the property manager and owners were EXTREMELY helpful and responsive. Very very helpful.
Something they don't mention in the description is that you are greeted with a small set of basic groceries upon arrival (milk, bread, etc) so you don't need to run out immediately. Also there is everything you could ever need stockpiled in this house. We found a audio monitor for the baby, a humidifier for one of our sick kids after getting a cold, even ponchos were stored in the front closet in case of rain. They have thought of everything.
Last note - we drive an electric car (Tesla) and the owner recently had a charger installed. I was blown away - how nice!!
I liked this home so much we will DEFINITELY book it again for future trips when we plan another Disney adventure. Excellent!!
Amazing house, amazing accommodations
Very nice house, the house has everything, the pool and hot tub very nice. There was not one single thing needed they thought of everything!
Thanks so much for your lovely review Robert, great to hear you found we thought of everything!
We look forward to welcoming you again soon.
Thanks, Sarah & Ken
From Start to Finish!
Thank you Sarah for supplying us such a wonderful place to stay for our mini family reunion! My brother flew in from Alaska and we surprised my niece and nephew with their first trip to Disney. The layout of the house was perfect! We had eight adults and two children and we were all very comfortable. The decorations were amazing and gave it that Disney touch that helped the magic to continue when we came home from the parks. The pool and hot tub were used to help us relax after a big day of fun. Thank you for the shortcut to the parks! Animal Kingdom was only 10 minutes away and the other parks were never more then 20 without any traffic. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a house this size to consider it. I normally don't take the time to write a review but I could not wait to get home to write a review for this amazing house. Oh and the game room! Can't forget the game room! Many games of pool and air hockey were played every night! We didn't need any baby things, but if you have a small child they have everything you can think there to use (high chairs, strollers). Practically perfect in every way! We look forward to our next visit. I will never stay in a hotel again in Orlando!
Thank you so much Jill for such a lovely review. Wonderful to hear you still found some Disney magic even after you left the parks! And great to hear the game room got good nightly use. Thank you for being such great guests, we look forward to welcoming you back soon.
Sarah & Ken.
