Welcome to Villa Mimosa, your perfect Disney home. You’re going to have fun!
After a long day’s walk (or run – thanks, kids!) through Disney, there’s nothing quite like sinking into the warm, inviting bubbles of your very own, very spa.
After a theme park marathon, there’s nothing quite like taking a day off for a family pool party, a foosball competition, or a movie marathon.
After an exhilarating day of roller coasters, Dole whip (www.disneyfoodblog.com/2010/05/05/disney-dole-whip) , and larger-than-life characters, there’s nothing quite like a home-cooked family meal under the stars.
After all your careful planning, there’s nothing quite like Villa Mimosa. Nothing quite like coming home to the perfect Disney vacation home – to a place that feels like a true home-away-from-home.
That is, if your home were drenched in year-round sun, had a private pool and hot tub, and a theater-style sound system! And free Wi-Fi that covers the whole house and the pool deck!.
Welcome to Villa Mimosa, your perfect Disney home base. We’re going to have fun together.

♠♠♠ SPACIOUS FAMILY LIVING ♠♠♠
Disney is a very special kind of family vacation – the kind you look forward to, plan, and dream about, sometimes for years.
Villa Mimosa is built just for this kind of vacation: for family togetherness, for movie night and game marathons, for afternoons in the pool and evenings dining al fresco. Here, there are spaces to enjoy together, and private little nooks for time apart. It’s just the right balance.
Of course, it is Central Florida, so we’re betting most of your time will be spent outdoors. The weather really is that good, even in winter. (And psst, the pool can be heated!)
Villa Mimosa’s Great Outdoors beckon with a spacious, 32-foot pool and spa (hot tub), pool deck and lanai, pool loungers, outdoor dining, and even an optional grill. Even better, the entire pool deck and lanai are completely screened in, so leave your worries about weather and mosquitoes back home! This is the glorious, sun-splashed Florida lifestyle you’ve been dreaming of.
Of course, what’s vacation without a foosball competition, a movie marathon, or a rousing round of pool? That’s why we’ve outfitted our inside as invitingly as our outside: Villa Mimosa is home to a game room with foosball (table football) and pool (billiards), a living room with a theater-style sound system, and plenty of comfortable seating around a big flat-screen TV, Blu-ray player, multi-channel cable TV, and an extensive DVD collection.
♠♠♠ PRIVATE (AND WE MEAN PRIVATE) SWIMMING POOL ♠♠♠
Pools are almost standard in balmy Central Florida, but privacy isn’t: Look around, and you’ll notice that most backyard pools have zero privacy: There are neighbors beside you (yes, both sides), behind you, and all around. In peripheral-vision view of your cannonball, your sunbathing, your family’s rousing game of Marco Polo.
Not so at Villa Mimosa. Here, you have total pool privacy. Read it again: Total. Pool. Privacy.
A privacy fence surrounds your very own south-facing (in other words, sun-drenched), 32-foot pool, which means you can cannonball, sunbathe, and Marco Polo to your heart’s content, without worrying about the neighbors. That’s what we call relaxing.
As always, we care as much about safety as we do about fun. We keep your little ones safe with a pool fence to protect our youngest guests from taking a swim on their own. There are also pool alarms on the doors that lead to the pool and hot tub.
♠♠♠ LUXURIATE IN THE SPA ♠♠♠
Beneath the inky, star-spotted Florida sky, a bubbling spa awaits you. Yes, you! The one who’s dreaming of a real, get-away-from-it-all kind of vacation.
Look, let’s be honest: You’re going to walk A LOT at Disney. If you’re here with kids, make that run a lot. Miles and miles a day, most likely.
So, imagine coming back to your home-away-from-home. The kids are in bed. The wine is poured. And yes, the hot tub is bubbling.
Sink in. Relax and enjoy those massaging jets. Slip in a little more. Ahh, perfect! The water’s warm, even in winter. Take a sip of that wine. Now, look up. How many constellations can you spot through the fine mesh ceiling?
♠♠♠ FAST, WHOLE-HOME WIFI INTERNET ♠♠♠
Need to stay connected? No problem. Our high-speed free WiFi internet covers the entire home, and even extends out over the pool deck. So go on, upload that poolside selfie.
♠♠♠ BEDS FOR EVERYONE ♠♠♠
Whether you’re traveling with adult siblings, grandparents, or a boatload of kids, our bedrooms are up to the challenge.
In addition to Villa Mimosa’s spacious master suite, you’ll find a queen bedroom, double bedroom, and two twin bedrooms, for a total seven beds. And for the littlest members of your group, we’re happy to accommodate with cots and cribs. Here are the details:
Master Bedroom: Looks out onto the garden and offers a king-size bed and multi-channel cable TV. The attached master bathroom offers a shower, sunken corner bath and Jacuzzi, and twin vanity basins. There is a large walk-in closet with a safe to store your valuables.
Queen Bedroom: Looks out onto the lanai and pool, and offers a queen-size bed and wall-mounted, multi-channel cable TV. Shares a bathroom with the double bedroom.
Double Bedroom: A large bedroom with a double bed, wall-mounted, multi-channel cable TV, large closet and plenty of storage space. Shares a bathroom with the queen bedroom.
Twin Bedroom #1: Offers two single beds with a large closet and cable TV. Shares a bathroom with the second twin bedroom.
Twin Bedroom #2: Offers two single beds with a large closet and loads of storage space. Shares a bathroom with the first twin bedroom.
Plenty of towels and high quality linens are provided for all five bedrooms.
♠♠♠ THEMED GAME ROOM ♠♠♠
Your family is going to love Villa Mimosa’s game room, which comes equipped with a top-quality slate-bed pool table and a foosball table. Who’s ready for a little friendly competition?
♠♠♠ FULLY EQUIPPED KITCHEN ♠♠♠
There are some truly excellent restaurants in the Disney area, including a handful within minutes of Villa Mimosa, but we know you don’t want to eat out for every, single meal.
Even if you’re just buttering a bagel or pouring some cereal in the morning, you’ll appreciate Villa Mimosa’s fully equipped kitchen. There’s even a breakfast nook, so you can keep an eye on the kids while you make your own breakfast. A separate dining table, located between the kitchen and living area, offers additional seating for 6.
Your kitchen boasts the standard oven, stove cooktop/hob, fridge/freezer, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, and dishwasher. But, we’ve also outfitted you with tons of pots and pans, dinnerware (plates, glasses, flatware, etc. for up to 11 guests), and a host of other kitchen equipment, gadgets and doodads. Poke around when you get here, and you’ll immediately feel at home.
♠♠♠ LOTS OF AMENITIES FOR KIDS ♠♠♠
Parents know: Packing for a vacation with kids, especially little kids, is the worst. The absolute worst. There’s no way you can fit all the required baby gear in your suitcases, but of course, you need your littlest family members to be safe and happy while traveling.
We care about your children (and your sanity), so we’ve stocked all our villas with high chairs, strollers, pack-and-plays, and other baby gear. Whatever you need, let us know. We have lots of baby and toddler accoutrements on hand, so we’ll be happy to accommodate.
♠♠♠ RECENT UPGRADES ♠♠♠
We take great pride and joy in our vacation homes. That’s why personally inspect our rentals at least twice a year, to be sure that everything adheres to our high standards. What’s more, every year, we improve and upgrade our villas.
To us, “good enough” is never good enough; we want our vacation rentals to exceed your expectations.

About Stephen Ward
♠♠♠ FULLY LICENSED AND INSURED ♠♠♠ We are fully licensed at both the county and state levels. First and foremost, that means we follow the rules and prioritize your safety: We’ve installed fire extinguishers, smoke alarms, and emergency lighting in all the right places. We maintain tight safety measures at our pools. And all our homes are subject to periodic inspection, by the county and state, so you know that we’re still up-to-date on those safety requirements. Our vacation rentals are legal and above-board. We pay our taxes. You can check our existence in the public records. Feel free to ask how. We’re happy to share. ♠♠♠ TRUSTWORTHY ♠♠♠ We get it – you don’t know us from the next guy. And simply trusting that we’re trustworthy? You weren’t born yesterday. But trustworthy, we are – and we’ll do our best to prove it, well before you commit to booking. It starts with our response times (often within minutes, never more than a few hours). We go out of our way to answer all of your questions. And we’re honest about it; we won’t fib or exaggerate. We won’t tell you a home is 10 minutes from Disney, when it’s really 30 minutes in normal traffic. What’s more, we’re legal, we’re licensed, and we’re insured – and we can prove it. (Just ask. We’ll happily show you where and how to verify.) Further proof that we deliver on our promises? One of our homes, Villa Palmera, was invited into HomeAway’s exclusive Luxury Rentals site. We were chosen from among thousands of Disney homes, and represent one of just nine 4-bedroom luxury homes in the entire Disney area. In fact, there are only 60 luxury home rentals listed in all of Florida. We’re honored to be one of them! And if that’s not enough, just have a look at our reviews. You can’t fake the trust our renters have in us!

Why Stephen Ward chose Kissimmee
♠♠♠ A STRESS-FREE WELCOME ♠♠♠ We may pride ourselves on personalized service, but part of our quality promise is actually just the opposite: We’ve taken the personal out of check-in. Forget having to meet us at the office, on our terms, during our business hours. We’re happy to say, we’ve gone digital – at least, as far as check-in is concerned. All of our rentals have keyless entry, so there are no lockboxes, no keys to collect, and no stressful meet-ups. (We all know how fun those are, especially when you throw in elements like a delayed flight.) When you book with us, we’ll send you a digital welcome guide, packed with helpful information about your rental and the surrounding area. And of course, we’ll let you know how to check-in.
What makes this Villa unique
♠♠♠ PRIVATELY OWNED AND LOCALLY MANAGED ♠♠♠ Have you ever lived a Vacation Rental Nightmare? It’s 9 p.m. and the toilet’s overflowing. Or you’re fresh out of clean clothes and the washing machine breaks down mid-cycle. Or perhaps you’re locked out, or you can’t find the wine opener, or you just need a late-night restaurant recommendation. You call, and you call, and you call. But the property manager doesn’t pick up. Or, she does but she’s based across the country and has no local, emergency contacts to help you tonight. You’ll have to wait until tomorrow; they’ll be there sometime between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Suddenly, your vacation has morphed into something very different than the relaxing escape you had hoped it would be. We know that the details – the big AND little details – can make or break your vacation. That’s why we’re committed to you, to your experience. We’re local – in just a few minutes, we can be at your front door – and we’re available 24/7, every day of the year, via phone, text or email. What’s more, we have the local professional contacts to handle any emergency, no matter the hour. We’ll get that toilet fixed, tonight. Oh, and as we mentioned, we’ve been in the Disney area for 15 years, so we’re also good for those restaurant recommendations. (Ask us where to find the best cheesy chips.) ---------------------------------- ♠♠♠ FAMILY REUNIONS AND BIG GROUPS WELCOME ♠♠♠ Have a big group? Good news!

Some positives, some negatives.
The home was nice and spacious. The location was close to Walmart, restaurants and entertainment. I was surprised that after spending so much to rent a home with a pool and hot tub that we had to pay $30/day for it to be heated. I've never paid to have a hot tub heated. The cleaning company should probably do a more thorough cleaning. (fingerprints on stainless steel fridge, dust and dirt on the baseboards, dryer lint thrown on the spare tile in the laundry area) They left a dryer full of towels and dirty dishes in the dishwasher. The expectations for departure are a little more than I cared to do on vacation. (strip beds, start laundry, take all trash out). Lots of warnings about taking the trash out and bringing it in by such and such time or the HOA will fine them and it will come from the deposit. Very little control over the thermostat which is controlled by the owners remotely. There is some wiggle room, but next thing you know it is back to their preset temperature. I honestly think the hotel would have been more relaxing because it is chore-free. We rented it for two people, but it would have been a much better value if several couples split the expense and didn't mind the chores.
Firstly an apology - the home should have been perfectly clean on your arrival. The items you mention should have been called in either to ourselves or our management company so they could have been dealt with straight away. As we always say to guests please please tell us - as if we don't know we can't fix it!
As to the other points you raise :
1. This home does not have a hot tub - it has an in ground spa alongside the swimming pool. During the period October to April the pool heater and spa are interdependent - the pool has to be heated for the spa to be heated. Its the pool heat that is charged for. The rest of the year the pool heater is set to only heat the spa and there is no charge for this.
2. Trash and recycling are collected once a week and the days etc are clearly set out within the home.
3. Its a great help to housekeeping if beds are stripped and some laundry put underway. This is not mandatory but if we have a same day changeover it is a huge help. Given there were only two people staying then this is not an issue as compared to occasions when we have 10 guests and all the beds and towels have been used.
4. The AC settings are under the guests control - the only restrictions ensure that the AC cannot be set at levels which may damage the AC system. As with everything else we provide clear, detailed instructions and information.
It does sound as if these particular guests would have been better served in a hotel rather than a vacation rental.
Wonderful spacious home from home!
We had a perfect vacation at Villa Mimosa! The home was spotless clean when we arrived and exactly as shown in the photos. The pool deck gets the sun all day even during our mid winter stay. We made great use of the hot spa after getting home from the theme parks.
Walmart is literally a minute away so it was easy to keep our supplies stocked up. We needed to contact the management company as the toaster stopped working - they were round within the hour with a new one! We will be back next year.
Delighted to hear you had such a great vacation at Villa Mimosa - we look forward to welcoming you back.
My first bad experience would never stay at this property again
Arrived to house at 6pm after a long road trip was looking forward to a warm shower and rest to get prepared for the Walt Disney Parks the water in the home was cold the house was freezing it is heat controlled by the owner that is out of the country the Home management does not control anything they had to contact the owner I had to fix the hot water tank myself we had to stay under blankets and clothes over night to warm up before the owner turned the house temperature up to 72 degrees I had called the management company prior to our stay to let them know to Heat the pool only to find out when I arrived that the management company that’s listed in the home away app is not the company that handles the property for the owner, after getting in contact with the right company I was told it would take a day for the pool to be warm needless to say it never did the pool was freezing and that was the only reason I decided to pick this property.The activity room was very dirty we had to organize it ourselves there was a garbage bag with a fake Christmas tree in it on the floor boxes all over and a dirty fan and we found spider webs all over the home.on the third day we woke up to tiny lizards in the bedroom and front room I took videos of everything from the dirt to even a broken dining chair.we was so glad to leave this property.I would not recommend this property to anyone everything was cheaply done the furniture is awful.The head boards are not even connected to the beds it was also the most uncomfortable bed I ever slept in I had to extend my stay at a nice resort for my family to enjoy a heated pool a property where I control the temperature myself and enjoy the simple things like toiletries are provided for us for less of the cost. I stayed at other property’s using the home away app and was always happy this was a nightmare from the beginning to they end.
We are sorry you did not enjoy your stay at Villa Mimosa.
Guest comfort levels for heating and cooling vary considerably and by using the thermostat controls you can make the home comfortable.
This was explained when the emergency out of hours number was called.
We provide full information to guests well before arrival and explain clearly how everything works. We encourage all guests to read this information carefully so we can answer any questions before guests arrive.
Pool heat is an option that some guests require - others spend their time at Disney etc. and don't use the pool. Its best to order pool heat in advance so we can put the pool heater on the day before arrival - it can take a full day to heat 15,000 gallons of water to the correct level. In this case the pool reached 89 degrees which most would not describe as "freezing".
We keep the condition of furniture under constant review and update / replace as necessary. In this home for example the master bed was replaced very recently. All the appliances are new following a $10,000 kitchen refit.
All our vacation rentals are checked following departure and specifically for cleanliness before arrival.
Security deposit deductions are very rare - indeed this was only the third time in five years (and 8 vacation homes) that we have made a deduction. We did not however make a deduction for the dining chair which was damaged during your stay - only for the unpaid pool heat invoice.
Clearly you found a resort experience more to your liking than a vacation rental home - others of course prefer to have the relative privacy and space associated with a rental home.
The best vacation ever!
We had the perfect stay at Villa Mimosa - exactly like the pictures and the new kitchen is well planned out with loads of dishes, pots and pans etc. Perfectly clean, comfortable beds, everything we expected and more. Walmart is literally a minute away, so easy to keep stocked up. We had a couple of chilly days so headed off to Florida Mall which is only 25 minutes away.
Superb vacation rental with loads of space for everyone. Private pool and spa which is not overlooked. We ordered pool heat for a few days and the owner switched it on remotely for us. Two minutes or less to a huge Walmart, and plenty of great restaurants a few minutes drive away. Close to all the attractions exactly as described.
nice house, exactly as in the photos
Very clean house, exactly as shown in the photo. It is a single floor house making easier to carry luggage. We asked a day before for a pool heat just for a single day and it was warm quickly in the next day. Quick response from the house manager in every interaction. Very good internet speed connection and good cable TV package as well.
♠♠♠ LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! ♠♠♠ If you’re looking for a great location, but refuse to compromise on space and convenience, on comforts and affordability – welcome. Five-bedroom Villa Mimosa is one of the larger homes in Indian Point, a popular community located just a hop, skip and a jump from Disney. (See bullet points, below, for drive times.) Your home-away-from-home sits on a spacious corner lot, and that means plenty of front yard room for the kids to run, jump or turn cartwheels. That is, when they’re not splashing in the backyard pool! Villa Mimosa’s location is just minutes away from all the necessities, including an ALDI and a 24-hour Walmart Supercenter (one minute!), perfect for grabbing a last-minute pool toy to keep the kids entertained while you enjoy a leisurely meal under the stars. (Thank you, screened lanai!) And speaking of food, there are plenty of restaurants close by, as well, from big-name chains to best-kept Kissimmee secrets. (Ask about our favorites!) We’re adamant about ethics and honest rental descriptions, so we’ll never embellish how close our villas are to the destinations that matter to you. So, let’s cut to the chase: Villa Mimosa is located about 10 miles to Disney. In are-we-there-yet?!? terms, this means: • Hollywood Studios and Epcot: 20 minutes (faster, if you hit the green lights!) • Animal Kingdom and Sea World: 25 minutes • Universal Studios: 35 minutes • Magic Kingdom 30 minutes and • Busch Gardens and the Kennedy Space Center: Just over an hour
