About Andy and Theresa Dent

We are Andy and Tess Dent, husband-and-wife owners of this Terra Verde town tome.

Andy grew up in England before immigrating to North America in 1991, first to Canada for a spell, and has resided in the US for the past 14 years.

Tess grew up in the Philippines before immigrating to Canada in 1987 and then to Florida in 1996. Tess takes great pride in our own South Florida home and equally in our Terra Verde property, and has a passion for organization, neatness and cleanliness.

Between the two of us with our diverse backgrounds, we are able to relate well to our guests who also come from many different nationalities.

We are full-time Florida residents ourselves, and have been for the past 12 years. If you are contemplating booking your accommodation with us, you can take much comfort in this fact alone.

In contrast, the majority of vacation homes in the Orlando area are owned by 'absentee owners' and investors, including many who live overseas. Obviously such owners find it difficult to maintain much (if any) personal oversight of their properties, often trusting them entirely to property management companies.

Although we don't live on the doorstep of Terra Verde (we live in South Florida), we do make frequent trips to Terra Verde approximately every 2 months, often for several days at a time. We have a great deal of involvement in the upkeep and maintenance of our property, and devote a lot of personal time to deep cleaning, and adding personal touches. We like to think that it shows, especially in the details. We do use a trusted management company for routine cleaning, routine maintenance, inspections and any urgent guest issues that may arise. We feel we have an optimum blend of personal property oversight, complemented by professional service providers, that results in our guests being pleased with their choice to book with us.

Andy and Theresa Dent purchased this townhome in 2005

Why Andy and Theresa Dent chose Kissimmee

We bought the vacation rental in this location partly so we could have the benefit of personally using it, since we live just 3 hours from this area. Terra Verde was a natural choice of resort as it is beautifully designed, architected and landscaped in a way that makes it stand apart from so many of the Kissimmee area resorts.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great spot to unwind after a busy day at Disney!

  • 5 of 5

The home was exactly as advertised - very clean and well stocked with dishes, towels, etc. It's just a short drive to Disney. We followed the homeowner's directions and avoided a LOT of traffic - the small toll ($1.00 in exact change/coins)was well worth it. We spent our non-park days at the pool and took advantage of the games and Wi-Fi in the home. It was great to be able to wash our clothes before heading home, too.

Great house for us - we had four adults and two kids. Perfect amount of space and a great location.

Thanks so much!

Loved it

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in the accomodation end April 2016. All was as pictured and the arrival was perfect with the help of a very complete arrival information package received via email. The Terra Verde Resort was very nice and clean and close to the parks, restaurants and highways.

We enjoyed our stay very much and really recommend this accomodation.

We really enjoyed staying in this well equipped property. The owners were very quick to respond to enquiries and always very helpful. The property is on a recently built, nicely landscaped, gated community. The staff were all very helpful. The townhouse was quite spacious and had all that we needed for our vacation. We would recommend this property to anyone who would like to stay a short distance from the attractions in a peaceful location.

Great holiday villa

  • 5 of 5

Lovely, spacious, clean and well maintained. This property was perfect for our family of four. Plenty of room for all of us. Would easily accommodate more. Terra Verde is a nice setting and only a short car journey to all of the attractions, theme parks, restaurants and action of this busy holiday destination. Close to supermarkets and shopping too. This is a gated complex and very secure. Privately owned property and the owners were fantastic to deal with, all communications were responded to promptly and professionally. I would definitely recommend this as a great place to stay.

A Great House!

  • 5 of 5

My young family of 6 really enjoyed this house for 2 weeks. 5 stars doesn't mean everything is "perfect" but I can happily say that after renting several other homes in Florida since 2013 this was by far our BEST stay. Andy was helpful with any and all questions and this was the first time we got to a rental home and did not have a single problem! That speaks volumes for me. Everything was super clean upon our arrival. I only wish this house was 1 level because with a baby stairs in a vacation home aren't good for us and the baby gates weren't sufficient for us, unfortunately. But it wasn't a big deal since we spent so much time out and about.

The Terra Verde neighborhood is really great. I loved having a gated entrance where someone was always there to greet us and let us on the property. It's so much more quiet and private versus a typical residential community. I would love to stay here again when my kids are a little bit older! Thanks for a great stay!
