Come and stay at our family retreat 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms at the Terra Verde Resort in Kissimmee. It is just minutes from Walt Disney World, Universal Studios, the Florida Mall , and Orlando's International Airport. It is about 50 minutes from Legoland (opens October). A perfect spot to enjoy the parks and have a quiet retreat to return to.
We pride ourselves on a fully furnished, clean, and up to date unit. Our property manager is 'Rated Excellent' . We have lots of entertainment options including a 46 inch TV, BluRay/DVD player and sound system. There is free cable access internet in the living room and wireless access throughout the villa. All bedrooms have TV and cable. There is also a Wii with games in the kid's room and a selection of board games. All useful for those quiet days at home or evenings when relaxing is important. Our townhouse is kid friendly with a crib/playpen, highchair, baby gate, outlet protectors, and patio alarm. It is fully furnished with plenty of sets of towels for both the bathrooms and pool. The kitchen is fully equipped including pots, pans, coffee maker, kettle and lots of dishes and cutlery. Our property manager is a very friendly ex-London policeman. He is at Terra Verde most days and responds promptly to phone calls. For added security our unit has a motion sensor entry light, an electronic door lock so you do not have to worry about late entry or losing the key plus an additional keyed entry if you want extra security. We actively solicit guest feedback and in 2011 we have added extra wine glasses and an overhead fan in the master bedroom in response to suggestions.
Terra Verde is a wonderful gated community with a 24 hour gate guard. It is the number two rated specialty lodging area in Kissimee.

I am a retired University Professor - most recently with DeVry and have two great kids and a lovely wife. We used to live in the Caribbean (hence the photo) and bought our townhouse in Florida for holidays in an area with lots of things to do (Disney, Animal Kingdom, Universal, Legoland, SeaWorld, Golf, shopping). We love to return to our townhouse for its walks around the lakes, the patio barbecue, the great TV and sound system, and the pleasant weather. I am not so keen on the painting and minor repairs but we want you to have a great visit and recommend us to your friends.

Terra Verde is a pretty, well maintained, friendly gated community in the heart of the theme park area and yet situated in a quiet country location. Terra Verde is family and senior friendly with a pleasant walk around the small central pond with fishing and palm trees surrounded by Mediterranean style homes. Our home is very close (less than 3 minutes walk) to the clubhouse, pool, climbing area, basketball court, beach volleyball, and playground. Our vacation home is a great location for our guests to enjoy Disney, Epcott, Universal, Cape Canaveral and the Everglades. Orlando has great connections to the US, Canada, and Europe.
Our Terra Verde home is newly furnished (just purchased immediately after buying the property). It has a spa, 46 inch LCD TV with Blu-Ray/DVD player and wireless internet (you may also be able to connect directly by Cable). It has one Queen sized bed in the master bedroom with attached en-suite, a second Queen in the second bedroom, and 2 twins in the third bedroom; all have TV and WiFi. There is a walled in patio with new furniture and working spa that can accommodate up to 8 people.
We were so impressed with the location and team at the gated community that this house is a part of in Orlando! Everyone was very helpful and considerate, never acting as if we were a problem and going out of their way to help us. The owner, Jon, was extremely helpful and supportive as we dealt with unplanned changes due to the hurricane passing through. His communication was quick and his assistance was much appreciated! The house itself is in good condition, showing normal wear from the many families who have had the benefit of staying here. We needed help with the spa (an amazing addition to the house!) and someone came to assist us right away. We LOVED the amenities of the community - heated pool, playground, arcade, tiki bar, etc. These made our stay very enjoyable by offering other options to do when our kids needed a new distraction/break. The security of the gated community and the keycode access to the house made the whole experience seem very secure, and the flexibility of the owner Jon to allow additional guests to come visit partway through our trip was very kind. All in all, an outstanding experience and one we will treasure! Thank you!
We stayed here for 18 nights and found it to be an excellent choice. Terra Verde is in a good location, only a short drive to the 192 where there are plenty of shops and restaurants and about 15 minutes from Disney. The resort is very secure with manned gates and is maintained to a high standard. The check-in process at the club house was very straight forward and the instructions provided by the owners were very clear. The resort pool and clubhouse are only a short walk from the property. The property was clean, well maintained and everything was as per the desription, we had no issues during our stay. We found this property to be excellent value and would definitely consider staying here again.
We were recommended the Terra Verde resort and have to say it lived up to the recommendation. The resort was lovely, clean, plenty of amenities. The pool and pool bar great for end of day relaxation. Indeed like a previous review our kids asked on a number of occasions for us to head back to the pool when we were at Disney. The resort is very convenient for Disney/Universal as well as attractions/beaches further afield. The accommodation was also great, clean and spacious with good facilities. The staff at the club house were extremely helpful and friendly as were the management company and the owner who all responded with a level of service you always hope to receive.
This is the second time we have stayed at Terra Verde and found the location ideal for all
the nearby attractions ,but also for the road networks to all the beautiful natural gardens ,coastlines and sights that Florida has in abundance
The property has always been clean and tidy and the owners always acting on client recommendations to improve the home facilities
The place was great! Clean, well-appointed, private, large. The private patio and hot tub were a plus. We used it as our home base for Disney excursions and most days it only took us a 15 minute drive. Well worth it for the huge cost savings compared to staying on-site, and avoidance of the crowds. A few days, our kids actually asked to leave Disney to go back and swim in the resort pool! Other resort guests were friendly and tiki bar was good for drinks. Jon and Lonnie's place is lovely, and we'd definitely stay again!
This was a great rental. Just the right amount of space for our family. The complex also had a great pool, game room, a mini golf course and walking trails around lake. Owner outlined everything very clearly and we had no issues. We would definitely stay here again!
Close to major theme parks including Disney and Universal. Cape Kennedy can easily be reached for a day trip.
