About Lois Hatteberg

As retired teachers we have enjoyed many travel opportunities including Alaska, Hawaii, Virginia, Mexico, Myrtle Beach, St. Maarten, St. Thomas, Las Vegas, Texas and Florida. After many trips to Florida, we decided the time was right to purchase our second home. The Kissimmee area has so much to offer that we knew we wanted to be a part of the community.

Lois Hatteberg purchased this house in 2010

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our immediate family of 7 - all adults - enjoyed staying at Orchid Place! Right from the start things went well. It was easy to get to from the Orlando Airport, and easy to enter and looked great! We came from all over the country - CA, NYC, MD to stay at Orchid Place. One of our children works as a scientist at Animal Kingdom and couldn't get off for Christmas so this was our holiday week!

I did bring along too many items for entertainment - games, puzzles, etc. There was plenty of things to do at Orchid Place, and we never even got to use the things that we had brought.

The garage or Game Room had ping pong, fooz ball and corn hole. In addition, there were board games, video games, puzzle books, and reading books, plenty of tv's and movies to watch. And, of course, the great pool and surrounding area. We didn't get to use the heated pool as much as we would have liked, but when we did, it was great! We also enjoyed the view of the water out back. We usually ate breakfast out there and it was relaxing.

We ended up spending more days out and about in the area than we had originally planned. We were usually gone from early morning to evening. It was nice to have the house to chill out at after such a busy day. We ate breakfast and a late meal or snack at the house most days. There was plenty of towels and sheets and pillows for us to use. Cooking materials - plates, mugs, glasses, pots, pans, and utensils, etc were great. Very adequate for our family. We had amble room for everything that we did there.

Our days out were mostly spent at a Disney area. It was easy to get everywhere that we wanted to go.

Also, it was nice to have the light switches, etc labeled. We appreciated that. Every house has different systems, and it was great to know right off the bat what was what! The book that was there at the house was very complete and appreciated. It had necessary instructions and local places to visit and eat at.

One other thing that made our trip so positive was our interaction with the owners. We had some questions, and they were quickly answered them. It was great to have that personal touch. It truely felt like they were sharing their home with us and not just us renting a house from them.

We had a terrific time! Thanks so much!

Very relaxing and a great time for the whole family

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Orchid Place. We enjoyed the lovely home and hospitality. We absolutely would come back and stay again. The pool was wonderful even enjoyed a few midnight swims. It is a little bit of driving back and fourth to different attractions but also nice to be away from a lot of the hustle and bustle of it all. All main attractions are within 30-40 mins drive away. Lois was absolutely wonderful very informative and responsive to our every need. Thanks for sharing your wonderful well kept home with us. Looking forward to staying again soon.

So much better than staying in a hotel!

  • 5 of 5

Lots of space, privacy, pool is gorgeous and private. Close to stores and restaurants. We did Sea world and Aquatica. Not too far but traffic on the way back, during rush hour, resulted in a slow ride home. Played ping pong every night in the garage!

I hadn't noticed on the website that there was a washer and dryer, but was fantastic to go home with a suitcase full of clean clothes. Would pack lighter next time.

Enjoyed the property and would definitely stay again.

Owner's Response: We are glad you had a great vacation, and hope you come back to stay again soon! There are several routes to take to the theme parks. Some are better than others. Traffic volume, accidents, etc. make it unpredictable. We are glad you enjoyed the amenities in our home!

Nice Stay

  • 5 of 5

The property is well kept, clean and you can tell very loved by its owners! We enjoyed our stay while visiting Florida with our daughter, son-in-law and two year old grandson. It was a little farther from the park than we should have picked for traveling back and forth twice each day, but the welcome feeling made it worth the trip. Pool was a great temp and gave us lots of fun and relaxation in between park time. The neighbors did have a party one night which concerned us when we first got back from dinner, but they were quiet, polite and caused no problems. Thank you for letting us stay in your second home!
