About Andrew Crawford

My family live in the UK and we have been regular visitors to Florida for the last 20yrs.

I'm now in semi retirement after 30 years in Law Enforcement. I now have a part time job with the Ambulance Service whereas my wife works full time in the Health Service.

Andrew Crawford purchased this villa in 2008

Why Andrew Crawford chose Kissimmee

Purchasing a home in Vista Del Lago was an easy decision for us after renting vacation properties in Florida and then deciding it was time we owned our own home.

The Community has a genuine community feel to it with a lovely clubhouse with two pools, hot tubs, tennis courts and more.

The location is ideal with easy access to all of the main roads in the area. Disney World is 10 minutes away and the other main attractions are within 20 minutes drive. Shopping is made easy with Publix, Super Target, and Super Wal-Mart all within 2 miles of our home.

What makes this villa unique

The Community is as quiet as you want it to be. You can choose to relax in privacy on the rear Patio area at the home or take a morning dip in the Clubhouse Swimming Pool and have a chat with the locals.

For those more energetic take a relaxing morning walk or improve your fitness in the Gym.

Best of all is you can do all of this in the glorious year round sunshine state of Florida.

Property was clean, cool, cheap, and great for a Disney Trip

  • 5 of 5

Me and my friend stayed for universal studios and epcot. Both parks were fairly close to the property (especially the Disney parks) and the local food was great. The house was tidy, cool with the AC on, and close to the neighborhood pool. For how cheap it was, I was very pleased with the quality of this residence. If it's available, I'll definitely be returning to this residence for my next Orlando vacation. Thanks Andrew!

Great holiday home

  • 5 of 5

Just had 6 fantastic weeks in this villa This was our 4th return visit to Andrews villa. As usual it was just perfect A really safe community and great location for parks and shopping The two pools are in walking distance from the house the one at clubhouse being heated. We never had reason to call Diane the housekeeper this visit but we did last year over something small and she was there in minutes to help and solved our issue. I would recommend this villa to anybody wanting a good spot to relax after a day at parks or shopping everything u need is at hand. towels/bedding/kitchenware it has it all. Already rebooked for next Xmas roll on December

Golfing Buddy grip

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our stay in this spacious bungalow. All was as expected. It''s a gated community which is good for security reasons but there was a lack of communication between the owner and the security people who did not have my name and refused us entry. This was not the fault of the owner however and thankfully the housekeeper Diane was able to smooth things out and the rest of our stay was fine. That is the only complaint as everything else was fine.

Owner's Response: Many Thanks for taking the time to post a review of your recent stay Andy. Im pleased the Villa and Community lived up to your expectations if not the initial entry. Im aware some new procedures have come into effect for guests and there does appear to be a lack of communication between management whom I notify and front line staff security staff. Thankfully we have our trusty housekeeper at hand to resolve such issues which will hopefully be a thing of the past. Many Thanks for your valued custom and Season Greetings.

Perfect vacation home..close to Disney

  • 5 of 5

After staying in this villa in 2015, we had to come back to stay in it on our vacation in 2016. Everything that we could have possibly needed was in the house including kitchen supplies and coolers. The screened in back porch was wonderful to relax in after a long day in the parks. It was clean and extremely close to Disney. Andrew was very helpful with any questions we had, and he was very easy to get in touch with. The pool was within walking distance. Whenever we go back to Orlando, we will stay at this villa again. Thank you for the wonderful place to stay during our two trips to Orlando.

Owner's Response: Many Thanks Casey for taking the time to post an "honest and relevant review" of your recent stay at our Villa. We must be doing something right for you to return and happy to do so for future Orlando vacations. As you correctly state the Villa is clean, comfortable, fully equipped and ideally located with excellent community facilities. Once again many thanks for your valued custom.

Great location, nice community, mobile home needs some updates

  • 3 of 5

The location and community was great. We really liked all of the amenities, the security and overall upkeep of the Vista del Lago community. We were a little disappointed with the overall upkeep of the mobile home. The carpet and furniture is very worn and needs updated. The towels for bathing and showering were also old, overused and mismatched. We would really recommend light colored wash linens that may be replaced periodically. We went to Kohls' and purchased new towels and just took those back home with us. The overall decorations could use a little more coordination and matching. It does not necessarily need a Disney theme, but something consistent would be more "homey" and inviting.

The screen porch was very nice and the backyard was great for letting our dog out and just enjoying the Florida sunshine.

Ants in the kitchen were also a problem and I would recommend having some small ant baits that are harmless to pets and children to have out along the baseboard or kitchen window. We understand the mobile homes are more prone to ants and especially during the summer months. The small ants did make their way in closed boxes, so we used the refrigerator for many food items (box cereals, donuts, chips, crackers, etc.)

We really appreciated that we were able to have our dog with us and the cleaning service does an excellent job in regards to this. We could not tell other pets had stayed in the home; there was not any pet hair, pet odors or anything to let you know that pets were in the home previously.

Overall, the issues are minor in consideration of the price, location and amenities. Just things to think about for updates especially in regards to the linens and possible ant control measures as described. Proximity to Disney and all area attractions was a plus!

Owner's Response: Andy. Many Thanks for posting a review and your comments regarding the community and location for nearby attractions. Whilst I accept some of your observations I really do have to disagree with the vast majority. The ant issue seems to arise periodically and Im as concerned as most to resolve. Our housekeeper is monitoring and treating with foggers and other pest control measures. The carpets and furniture are of a perfectly acceptable standard.however the sofa is due for replacement this fall. The decor in the house is neutral (white/beige) which is the way we prefer.. Im not sure what the issue is with the towels which are again not old and perfectly serviceable and can only assume some renters have misplaced between the two linen storage areas.Im pleased you found the house clean although renters with dogs form a small proportion of our rentals so I wouldn't expect pet odours.
