About Erica MacKinnon

We have a family owned business that our father started in 1970. It is a water well drilling/ water pumps/ geothermal sales and service business.

We live in our hometown, Pembroke, on Canada.

Canada is a beautiful country, but it is nice to escape to our Florida home for a few weeks in the winter months!

Erica MacKinnon purchased this house in 2012

Why Erica MacKinnon chose Clermont Area

We both have young families and wanted to purchase a holiday home near Orlando, FL that would be close to attractions and shopping. We also knew that we wanted a South or West Facing pool area to get the optimal sun until the end of the day! It took us over a year to find a subdivision and home that we were happy and felt safe in. Our families have made wonderful memories already and we look forward to spending more holidays in Florida!!

What makes this house unique

One unique benefit with our villa is that you can see the glow of the Disney Fireworks everynight standing on the front doorstep! You can also pick oranges every morning from nearby trees!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just to let you know that we had a fantastic time down in Orlando, and the vacation home was absolutely fantastic, we cannot say enough about this wonderful home, it was impeccably clean and welcoming and there was plenty of room for all 8 of us. Thank you for letting us enjoy your home and the beautiful Orlando area. This was a memorable vacation to say the least!

Great home

  • 4 of 5

Our stay was great, the house is very comfortable plenty of room with the four bedrooms. We loved the pool and Jacuzzi, the kitchen was well stocked the only thing missing was bake ware pans. We had a great time, the only problem we had was the air was set on 76 degrees which made hard to sleep first two nights and the WIFI went out I think do to a storm , but called the owner Erica and she took care of all our concerns the management company who addressed all problems quickly and pleasantly. It was real nice to wake up every morning with coffee or juice in the Jacuzzi. My daughter and her granny enjoyed picking oranges in the community . This was a great first time vacation home rental, I will definitely rent here again.

Thanks the Reeves Family

Beautiful house with a great pool!

  • 5 of 5

This house was as described and the pictures are accurate--spacious, very clean and comfortable. This was my husband's birthday trip, so it was just the two of us. We loved the pool and hot tub -- the pool was the largest one we've seen in Florida rentals we've stayed in. There would have been room for our family of 6 to swim without bumping into each other all the time. We enjoyed a very relaxing and peaceful stay. There's a Publix grocery store just a couple minutes away, which was great since we cooked all our meals at the house due to allergies. It's only about 30 minutes to Disney World and Epcot with traffic. Nice to be close yet not have the congestion and noise of more populated areas. We enjoyed our stay so much, we extended our trip by a few days (luckily, no one was booked after us). Communication with the owner & managing company was easy and quick. I would definitely stay here again. Thanks, Erica, for sharing your house with us!

Clean & so close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed ourselves so much at this property! This was our first time using VRBO so I was a little nervous, turns out there was no need for the worry! It was just myself, husband & two kids. The kids loved having their own bedrooms & bathrooms!

It was clean & exactly as it is pictured. I especially liked that the main areas were tiled so it was very easy to keep clean. Plus it was open concept so I never felt hidden away in the kitchen while everyone was enjoying themselves.

The pool was actually bigger than we expected & very private. This kids couldn't get enough of it! We really enjoyed our early morning coffee in the hot tub each and every day!

Thank you for sharing your home with us!

It was close to all the major parks with easy access. It's only about 10 minutes from Disney which was a blessing after a long day at the parks. There were restaurants close by that we slipped out to dinner for. And grocery shopping close by as well, including Publix & a super Walmart.

We cooked in most days, and I found the kitchen very well stocked. I would maybe recommend a casserole dish or two, as that was the only thing we found we wished we had.

There is tons of room to spread out here & is in a lovely neighbourhood. It's way in off the main road so you don't hear any traffic, just the birds!

The owner, Erica, was a dream to deal with & provided a TON of helpful info for the trip. She is super easy to communicate with & I would in a heartbeat rent here again!

great vacation spot

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this villa for a month, the pictures are true to life. Decorating is nice and makes you feel like you are home , not in a rental home. We were close to the parks but enjoyed the quiet neighbourhood. The pool was well maintained .There was plenty of pool furniture ,so when we had guests everyone had a spot. The house is well equipped and everything we needed was there . When we arrived we had the wrong code and couldn't get in , made a call to the management company and the lady was there in a short period of time , so we were impressed with their service. Very spacious home, clean and very comfortable.It was great having a washer and dryer to keep towels and laundry clean. Publix grocery store is 5 mins away, and 24 hr walmart is 10 mins away. Would recommend this house. Dealt with the owner and she was good to deal with, was very prompt and friendly with all correspondence. You will not make a mistake renting this property.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. We are happy to hear that you found our house to be a comfortable and well equipped home. We apologize for the key code. It was the right code; however the management company had not changed it from the previous renter. Their mistake - but they have been notified about this so it does not happen again in the future. We look forward to having you stay with us again in the future!

The Villa is simply beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

It is just a beautiful place to stay. We enjoyed the area. It is very close to all the attractions. The best place we ate was at the Cracker Barrel family restaurant. The shopping was great also. The best shopping place was Kohl''s department store. We had a wonderful time even though the weather wasn't great. I would recommend this Villa to everyone. Thanks for the wonderful accommodations.

This was our BEST Florida rental

  • 5 of 5

We've rented both condos and homes in different Florida locations and this was the best so far.

-The pool was about 30% larger than other rentals and very well maintained as was the wonderful connected hot tub. Our 3 yr old granddaughter really enjoyed both. The hot tub heated first and she didn't have to wait to get wet. The pool is large enough for a lot of people at the same time.

-The lanai was covered with a celing fan and large table where we ate most of our meals. There is more than enough seating on the lanai with comfortable pool furniture.

-There is a safety fence around the pool to prevent unauthorized access by small children. My daughter loved it.

-The house was very clean and well maintained and the bedrooms were not cramped by any means. The master bedroom was located apart from the others which provided both privacy and quiet. The master bath had a walk in shower, tub, and two separate vanities. The other bathrooms are larger than others we've encountered.

- The furniture was comfortable and in very good condition. There are several recliners.

- There is a large screen HDTV in the family room and we were able to use an available HDMI port to watch Netflix with all my Granddaughter's favorite shows from our smartphone. Which testifies to the stability and bandwidth of the WiFi connection. At a previous rental the WiFi capacity would not support streaming video. There is cable available but the channels that we watched seemed to be displaying in standard definition rather than HD. But since we don't watch cable at home it could be that those channels were not broadcast in HD. We had excellent HD with Netflix and movies we had loaded on our smartphone.

- The kitchen has all the essential appliances and utensils in excellent condition. However there weren't any coffee filters and a small amount of coffee. This was only a concern because we arrived around 9pm. A quick trip to the nearby Publix market took care of the problem. Be advised Publix closes at 10pm. Fortunately they were very kind and helpful and did not kick me out when I went passed closing time.

- Disneyworld is an easy 1/2 hour drive away. We only went to the Magic Kingdom but should have followed an internet posting that suggested parking at the Epcot lot and taking the monorail to the Magic Kingdom.

- The owners were very easy to work with and answered all our inquires quickly. I especially appreciated the convenience of using PayPal.

- We highly recommend this rental.
