About Maria Pereira

My name is Maria and I was born in Brazil. I moved to the United States when I was 29. I speak and read English, Portuguese and Spanish fluently so you can call or e mail me in any of those languages. By the way, the photo of me was taken at the Ringling Brothers Circus Museum in Sarasota. It's a couple of hours drive from the villa but it is spectacular! Don't miss it.

Maria Pereira purchased this house in 2013

Why Maria Pereira chose Crescent Lakes

My husband and I fell in love with Florida several years ago and we had been looking for a second home here. When we saw this house we knew it was the one for us right away. We love the feeling of being in a natural, nature filled, peaceful spot and we named the house 'Paradise Found'. I hope you will find it as inspiring as we did.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to tell you thanks for letting us use your house this week. Everything went great and we really enjoyed our stay. The weather even cooperated!

Thanks again..

Very Clean and Beautiful home with plenty of space for a family

  • 5 of 5

First off, I want to say that Maria was great to deal with and answered all our questions very quickly. We would highly recommend this home to any family to stay at.

The neighbourhood was very quiet, never heard any noises at night time and the home is located at the end of the cul-de-sac. We spent five nights at this very cared for home, the pride that Maria has in this home is present in each room. Great location to get to Universal Studios. Nicely decorated, beds were very comfy, lots of space for a family, loved the size of the master bathroom and this home is VERY Clean!!

Due to the very cold weather, we were unable to use the pool, so I am unable to comment on that. The kids enjoyed a few quick ping pong and pool games and they loved it. We enjoyed the sunrises and the assortment of birds just outside the pool fence.

Thank you Maria for allowing us to stay at your wonderful home and we would defiantly stay here again!

Great location. One level was ideal for grandparents. Lovely private back yard and extra special holiday décor and lights and a tree (!) which was wonderful to arrive to. This home is better equipped than any we have ever stayed in even though we did not cook a Turkey dinner - we easily could have. We chose to get it from Woodsby's - a great local café. The area was pleasant for walking and jogging with Publix and Target options in close proximity. What a relaxing time with family we had. Thank you Maria!

Great house and a relaxing stay!

  • 5 of 5

We just finished a weeks stay at this house and we have no complaints. The house was big and the beds were comfortable. We had a lot of activities planned so we were not able to enjoy the house fully. But we managed to get a couple of ping pong games in and some tv watching.

Because it was so chilly (for Florida) on our stay, we paid for the gas heat for the pool. But since we only were home at night, it was too chilly out to get in. So unfortunantly I paid for nothing but that isn't the owners fault. The weather just didn't cooperate. But the hot tub was perfect on those evenings so at least we got some water time.

All in all, it was a great home and we will look into returning the next time we come to Orlando.

Everything You Need

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time in Maria and Kens place. They could not of been more helpful. There is everything here to make your stay a comfortable one . Kids loved the pool and hot tub after a hard day in theme parks. Games room was also well used with the children wanting a table tennis table when we get home. Would love to stay again when we have saved up our pennies.

Very clean and comfy! Love this vacation house.

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this house for our family Disney vacation. It was nice to come home after a long day to a nice clean comfy home. My family of four stayed a week and spent a lot of the days at Disney and Universal which were both about a 20-minute Drive. My whole family enjoyed the pool and playing ping pong in the garage. The Pool and Patio area is very secluded and even with neighbors on either side you can't see anyone and they can't see you. We enjoyed having the lake out behind the house and on the last day saw an alligator back there which my kids thought was really cool. Signs in the house say alligators are back there and they aren't kidding! The lake is a good distance away and the covered Lanai keeps out any unwanted wildlife out so no safety worries. Beautiful birds to see too! The house had all the amenities for us to cook a few dinners at home. Walmart is about 10 minutes away and we did go to the grocery for food, trash bags, toilet paper, paper towel and a few other household items that were not supplied. Maria the owner had let us know ahead of time that we would need to bring some of those items. The beds were very comfortable ( it made me and my husband realize how bad we need a new mattress at home!) . A new Lazy Boy couch was also very comfy in the family room. On a busy vacation I always think it's nice to come home to a house versus staying in a hotel and we were very pleased with everything this house offered. There are many benefits to staying on the Disney Resort but I'm very happy with our choice to stay off site and would stay in this house and recommend this house to all of my friends and family.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. You really covered it all and I really appreciate that! I think you really gave an accurate description of my villa. I also love sitting in the lanai and watching the birds and other wildlife. Our house borders a protected conservation area so it's really special I think. I hope to see you again.

Great vacation

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned and was sad to leave, Maria and ken were very helpful during our stay at their vacation home. House is close to all amenities and the pool was fantastic. House is just as advertised in the photos, cozy and comfortable.

We will be back for sure.

The Villa is located in Kissimmee which is15 minutes from Disney World. Universal Studios and Sea World are only 30 minutes away.. The Villa is 10 minutes from Route 192 where there are many great restaurants to choose from. The Villa itself is close to everything and situated on a cul-de-sac.. The lanai and pool are very private so you will not have neighbors close by. Crescent Lakes also has a spacious children's playground (swings, slides, etc.) as well as basketball and tennis courts. Since the Villa borders on a conservation area you will find great birdwatching right in your backyard! We fell in love with this Villa the moment we saw it because of its location. That's why the Villa is named 'Paradise Found'.
