About Matt

My wife and I first came to Florida before we had children, we now have four children and love it even more. We live in Looe in Cornwall, UK which is also a tourist town and holiday let log cabins so we have now ventured out to Florida.

Matt purchased this villa in 2009

Why Matt chose Kissimmee

We have been coming to Florida for about 10 years and have stayed in various locations around Kissimmee and Davenport This area being our favorite as it is so close to all the parks, restaurants and attractions it cuts the time sat in the car to an absolute minimum. Our aim is to make our holiday home as comfortable as possible for us and anyone who stays in it.

What makes this villa unique

Our villa has a beautiful south facing pool which has an oversized lanai giving that bit extra room around the pool for sun bathing and barbeques, it is also very private as it is screened by bushes on either side and there is a large natural lake and conservation area to the rear.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hi Matthew / Lisa



Sadly our stay in Orlando is nearly at an end. We have had a fantastic time and the Villa is absolutely superb. We couldn't have wished for better accommodation.

Nice Home - Great Location

  • 4 of 5

This is our second visit to Kissimmee and our first stay at this property (first visit was at Sunset Lake). My primary factors for picking a house for this trip was location and cost. Overall experience was positive. Plenty of room for our party of eleven. Nice property, well laid out and ideally located for visits to Disney Parks. Close to a wide variety of restaurants and stores. Owners responded to queries in a timely fashion.

The only negative point I would like to bring up is the cleanliness of the property. We were disappointed when we first walked into the house. We arrived late and when came time to put the kids to bed, the bedding (sheets and bedspread) were covered with hair and had definitely not been cleaned, so our vacation started with washing bedding for 3 of the six bedrooms. The stove top hadn’t been cleaned and was covered with over spill baked on top. This is truly unfortunate as this house could potentially rate as a five stars.

I contacted the owner upon our arrival to apprise him of the situation. He stated that he would get his management team to do a deep clean in the next few days.

Fantanstic Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

We stayed during Easter holidays 2016. There were nine of us (five adults, two teenagers and two younger children) and the six bedrooms were perfect. Even with nine people we had plenty of space for all. The decor in each room was impressive and the kitchen area was very well fitted out. The pool was used most days and enjoyed by all (particularly the children). There is a great view from the lanai looking out to a wildlife area and the lake. The villa is situated in quiet location but very convenient for the Disney parks (about ten minutes to the parking lot of Animal Kingdom). This was a great holiday and we were really sorry to leave. Thanks!

Great House at Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying at the property. Again you can't beat this for a family of 4 and two grandparents. Everyone had their own space and we relaxed at the pool everyday! Close to all the parks and the neighborhood was quiet and nice. We loved it again! Thanks!

Orlando Holiday - March 2015

  • 3 of 5

The reasons to stay @ this property:

- convenient & quiet location close to all local attractions & shops.

- private backyard with pool, conservation area view, and tree line between other villas.

- good interior layout / lots of space inside with comfortable beds.

- owners were responsive, and answered all of questions quickly.

- BBQ grill on location (as many other properties charge a weekly rental fee).

Items for Consideration:

- interior is starting to look worn & tired; although an update was completed in 2009 according to the website - the villa is need of paint, carpeting, and fresh bedding.

- pool requires: a good cleaning (sentiment on floor, & walls need to be scrubbed). Lanai needs repairs to the mesh on ceiling & side-wall.

In closing, a great property that would be even greater with a little TLC.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback, Since your stay we have been over to the house and spent a couple of weeks addressing the problems you highlighted in your review, unfortunately due to work commitments we have not been able to get over as much as we would have liked and the house was starting to show it, we have renewed all the bedding that was looking tired, have had the carpets cleaned again, and decorated and cleaned the paintwork where needed, the pool was found to have some copper staining to the bottom and sides which has been treated and eradicated which is a great improvement, we also repainted the pool deck and gave the outside of the house a general clean up. So hopefully now we can get back to some more 5 star reviews!

Great visit.

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this villa. It is in a great location with easy access to all the Disney theme parks. There are grocery stores and restaurants near offering lots of options at meal times. We had 2 families staying in the house so the layout was perfect with one family upstairs and one downstairs. Great in the evenings for the grown ups to sit by the pool and relax. Quiet, safe location. Would recommend it to friends and family. Thank you Matt and Lisa.

Nice enough, but not the best

  • 3 of 5

The house is very nice, very well located for Disney Parks. It is decorated very well, but is showing some wear. Our biggest complaint was the fact that the pool heat had been shut off and it took several days for the pool to heat up to a decent temperature. On a week vacation, several days loss of use is important. A lot of the wear and tear is apparent that could be corrected by a painter in a couple hours. The cleaning crew that was there before we arrived was not very good. The floors and bathrooms were not clean to our standards. Another hour or two with a broom and a mop would go a long way. Many of the amenities provided are broken, and I'm sure that if the owners stayed in the house they would get replaced. I could not find a working alarm clock anywhere in the 6 bedrooms. The last problem is control of the heat and air conditioning. The tenants cannot change the settings. We had several young children in our party and several mornings it was way too cold for them when we woke up. I'm sure that in other parts of the world, heating practices are different, but in my home it is not unusual for us to use heat at night and air conditioning during the day. I have rented several other houses in the immediate area, and found them to be much more enjoyable. I would not rent this house again.

Owner's Response: It has taken me almost a year to calm down sufficiently to respond to this review, and I am already thinking I may not be ready! Can I start by asking all future guests to please tell me or the management company if there is something wrong when you are at the house, no one wants a bad review and it is especially painful when it so easily could have been avoided. The Thermostat in the house is a nest learning thermostat and sets itself to how it has used in the past, the temperature is controlable by our guests down to 72 degrees but the installation settings are protected and only accessable over the internet, unfortunately pat stayed on an unusually cold week for Orlando and was the first person to have needed heat since the thermostat was installed, highlighting an error in the installation settings, this was rectified immediately once he got home from his holiday and emailed me about it, as I explained in my reply to him if he had notified me of this I could have fixed this remotely in 5 minutes. The pool heat was another casualty of the cold weather, air sourced heat pumps will not work when the temperature drops to below 48 degrees as they start to ice up and spend more time trying to defrost themselves than heating the pool, this is not something that happens in Florida very often, and the only way to avoid it is useing gas heating which is much more expensive to run. I would also like to point out that we provide pool heat free of charge for all our guests between October through March. I have spoken to the management company about the cleaning and left it to him to talk to the cleaners, We have since been to the house ourselves and couldn't fault the cleaning, whilst we were there we did do some paintwork and renewed bits that had been broken and worn, as for the alarm clocks, we have a number of clock radios in the house to use but I will get 6 basic alarm clocks next time we are there which are easier to use, to be honest I have always used my phone so it has never been noticed before. Anyway rant over, Happy new year, even Pat!
