About Kevin & Helen Houghton

We are Kevin & Helen Houghton.

Kevin & Helen Houghton purchased this condo in 2004

Why Kevin & Helen Houghton chose Kissimmee

Back in 2004 Kevin got made redundant from his job, and we used part of his settlement money to have our first vacation in 4 years. We stayed in a cramped hotel room in Disney and ended up using the rest of the redundancy payment for the deposit on our condo. The rest as they say is history, as we've had many wonderful vacations in our condo since then. We visit at least twice a year for three weeks at a time, and spend a lot of our trip painting and doing odd maintenance jobs around the home, as well a few trips to the theme parks. We named the condo Sunset Palms as the Resort is called Grand Palms, and our condo faces west, so we get great views of the wonderful Florida sunsets.

What makes this condo unique

Although it's just 5 miles away from Walt Disney World, Grand Palms Resort is so peaceful and is a great place to relax after a hectic day in the theme parks.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Once again, our vacation was wonderful! We love your condo, and the location of it in regards to Disney World. With two small children, it is very nice to be able to spread out and have separate bedrooms. Plenty of room for everyone to enjoy. The movies and games available were great for the kids. Thank you for another WONDERFUL vacation!

Excellent option!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great property to rent. We stayed for three nights.

PROS

- Location. It is not as close as other properties, but close enough to make it a reasonable drive to the parks.

- Extremely clean. Probably the cleanest place I've ever been!

- Fully equipped and very comfortable

- Enough towels, blankets and supplies

- Community is quiet and well-maintained

CONS

- Condo is on a second floor, but parking is right in front

- Deposit refunded 13 days after checking out (not bad, just thought it could be quicker)

- Check-out is at 10 am

- Decoration is a little outdated, but is looks better in person than the pictures show

Overall, an excellent option and would highly recommend it. We did not have time to go to the common areas, but there is a nice pool.

Great location, Close to attractions

  • 5 of 5

Condo was very clean and had everything we needed. Located in building in the back of resort. Great view of wet lands and sunsets from balcony. We were able to see a pair of water birds building there nest, laying eggs. We were not around to see hatching as we left before then.

We also enjoyed the pool. It is very nice. Cleaned every day.

Would recommend to anyone.

Great getaway for a group of friends

  • 5 of 5

Two of my friends and I stayed here for a vacation getaway. The condo worked perfectly for the three of us. We each had our own room, and 2 full bathrooms to split amongst us. The mattresses were a tad firm for our liking, but definitely not a deal breaker. The biggest disappointment was not having full cable options in each of the bedrooms. My one friend got sick and spent a whole day in bed, and only had a couple of channels to pick from. Granted, she could have gone in the livingroom to watch the tv in there, but it would have been nice to watch in her room. We had one rainy day on our visit, and it was really nice to have a bunch of different board games to pick from to play. Even adults like to play board games! Given the chance to stay here again, I definitely think we would.
