Overview

Vista del Lago Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

Bungalow, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-7)

We have owned the home since 2004 and have spent many happy days here, and (hopefully) have helped the vast majority of our guests to have a fabulous Florida holiday, and many excellent reviews and comments in our guest book.

The bungalow is approximately 1640 sq feet in size with a lounge / dining area, fully fitted kitchen with breakfast area, fully screened porch with patio table and chairs, cottage suite and TV. The lounge has a 37 inch HDTV with cable channels and there are two portable TVs for use, plus a TV in the rear porch.

The master bathroom is huge with a large round tub, separate shower and twin vanity units. The master bedroom and guest bedroom both have queen size beds with built in closets, both having new mattress sets in 2012, and the third bedroom has twin over full bunk bed, ideal for the kids.

The master bathroom has been refurbished (2012) and we put new luxurious sofas, (three seater and a loveseat, plus a recliner chair, in the lounge (2012). New carpets have been fitted in the lounge and master bedoom (late 2011) and in the queen guest bedroom (2012).

Externally there is a carport and shed and a west facing patio area to the rear of the shed with all weather furniture, and a view of the lake, and the most beautiful Florida sunsets.

There is a community pool just a couple of minutes from the home, which is usually quiet. If you want to mingle, there are two other pools, just a short distance in the other direction, at the main reception area, where you will also find all of the amenities such as the pool room, sauna, play area etc.

The community is about 50/50 residential and vacation homes, and we have found it to be very friendly and the gated (staffed)entrance gives that added feeling of security. Although we have since bought a pool home, we still stay at Vista out of choice sometimes, because we love the relaxed, friendly lifestyle there.

Keywords: Three bed, two bath, three pools, sauna, tennis, fishing, gated community, wifi internet, cable TV, sat nav provided.

About Sandra H.

Jeff and I bought Vista after staying at a friends villa in 2003. We'd been visiting Florida since 1990, but just fell in love with the community at Vista so decided to buy a home there and have never looked back. It was a big step for we cautious Brits to take but we have never regretted a moment of it!

Because we visited the Orlando area so many times before we bought it, we knew what people were looking for on a trip to Florida, so we have tried to provide as much as possible to make it a home from home, after a busy day at the theme parks.

Sandra H. purchased this bungalow in 2004

Why Sandra H. chose Kissimmee

One of the things we liked about Vista was the fact that it was close to Disney, but in a relatively quiet area on the US 192. There has been some retail development since then, restaurants supermarkets etc, which have added to the amenities without detracting from the area. We also liked the feeling of security and the friendly atmosphere. Having looked at several other homes during the course of a long day, we walked into this one last viewing, and although it was in a sorry state we just fell in love with it's location and the rear aspect, especially the porch! We have spent many, many, hours bringing it up to a high standard.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Would just like to say a very big thank you for all your help with our last minute holiday. We absolutely loved your villa, our favourite part was the back porch which we spent 90% of our time in it, we had a really lovely time there from the moment we arrived I can't explain how lovely it felt your home had such a great vibe to it, we really felt at home there and certainly didn't want to leave, as I'm sure you could tell from the fact we stayed extra days!

Once again thanks for everything and we hope very much to stay there again some time.

Great place for a family of 6 enjoying Disney

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this house for our Disney vacation. It was so nice to have 3 separate bedrooms and plenty of living room space. Easy drive to the parks without traffic!! It took us about 10 minutes to get to Animal Kingdom. The other parks were about 5-10 minutes longer. The owner provided everything we needed and replied quickly to our questions. We would definitely stay here again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this villa. It had everything we could possibly need. It was our first time renting in Vista del lago and loved it. Sandra and her husband(owners) were so easy to communicate with. We would love to come again. Unfortunately Jan - March are not easy months to get but if we could we would definitely come back.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend this great home! The owner is so well organized, we had no worries our entire stay. This home was easy for my folks to access (both of whom use a cane to walk). The ramp up to the front door was very nice to have! Beds were very comfy, even the bunk bed! The back porch was a favorite place to eat breakfast as it had a great view out to the lake! The home was very clean and obviously well maintained. We had a problem with the blinds out to the back porch not opening completely, but a call to the caretakers, Julie and Greg, and the problem was quickly resolved! The home is so close to Disney and we really enjoyed walking around Disney Springs! Overall, a great place to stay!

Owner's Response: Many thanks to Joanne and family for this lovely review - as you say, Vista is in a great location for the Orlando atractions, and I think that our home is in a particularly good position on the community. Our caretakers are a great couple, and it's good to know that they responded promptly to the problem with the blinds. You will be more than welcome to return! Thanks again.

Hidden secret!

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed here and we loved it! There are 5 of us, 2 adults, 3 kids, and we stayed very comfortably! It is really close to Disney, but we went to Universal this stay, which is a 30 minute drive. The house was very clean, smelled good, and very homey. It was nice to stay somewhere so welcoming. The owner is very friendly and gets back to you quickly. Very well equipped house. Even the view behind the house was cool, there is a big pond and my kids swore they saw some alligators! I really can't think of one problem we had, almost hate to tell anyone because it won't be available next time we come down!

A fantastic place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in Vista Del Lago before because it so close to the Disney Parks and we all agreed that this was the best villa. It was clean and well looked after. There was plenty of space for the five of us to spread out and relax after long, hot days in the Parks. The kitchen is well equipped and there are plenty of towels and having the washer and dryer was great as we didn't have to go home with a suitcase of washing.The screen porch was an extra room with a very comfy sofa and TV. The owner was very helpful with detailed instructions on how to reach the villa from the airport and recommendations for places to shop and where to eat out. We would certainly recommend it to friends.
