Chatham Park is located just off the main US 192 in Kissimmee and is very close to all the local attractions and amenities.
Despite being an older community, Chatham Park does benefit from certain features that you do not find in the newer homes, such as a larger swimming pool for instance.
Desiree's Cottage is a very spacious home for a 3 bedroom property and the community is not without facilities. There are tennis courts in Chatham Park as well as a playground for children, and a bike path for cyclists. There is also a community swimming pool on site and it is a very quiet community for those who like to relax!.
The view from this home looks over the Chatham Park play area and it is very tranquil. Walt Disney World is only about 5 miles away, Universal 20 minutes away, Sea World about 15 minutes, and Kennedy Space Center just over an hour away. In the other direction Clearwater Beach is about a 90 minute drive and a host of local restaurants and shops are nearby, so Chatham Park does have a pretty good location, and plenty going for it.
Desiree's Cottage, (formerly Park Forest) is nicely furnished though the taste will probably suit more mature clients. There are many pictures and ornaments in the home that do give it a warm, and homely feel, hence the name. The home sleeps 8 people comfortably but we do try to limit the numbers to 6 to preserve the integrity of the home.
We have to stress to our clients that this home is an older property and is priced very much for those on a budget. The owner wanted to give all families a chance to enjoy a Florida pool home for a reasonable price and this gesture has been very well received by the large number of families who have stayed here over the years, and returned time and time again.
Despite it being an older home though, Desiree's Cottage is not without the mod cons that todays families both need, and want. There are flat screen TV's throughout, and the home does have high speed wireless internet access, offered complimentary to our guests, and all telephone calls to the US and Canada are free of charge too.
The bedrooms consist of a Master bedroom, with a King size bed, a crib for young children, and full en-suite facilities. There is also a Queen size room and a pleasant twin room themed for children. The second and third rooms share a bathroom. There are flat screen TVs in all the bedrooms.
Desiree's Cottage also has a separate sitting area which provides even more space for the larger family, and a dedicated dining area too which seats 6 people. The main living area is nicely furnished too and has a 46 inch flat screen television and a Blu Ray player. There is also a small sound system as well.
The kitchen is fully fitted as you would expect, with a dishwasher, microwave, full size refrigerator, stove, coffee machine, toaster, blender and waste disposal, and you will find all your crockery, and cutlery, as well as linens and towels, supplied for your stay. There is also a full size washer and dryer available, in the spacious 2 car garage.
Sliding patio doors from the family room open onto a covered patio, which features an over-sized screened in swimming pool. As we mentioned before, the view from the pool is very nice and relaxing, and is one of the most popular features of this home.
Desiree's Cottage, with the proximity it enjoys to all the local amenities and attractions, and the space it provides for larger families, is very attractively priced and as such it represents great value for money for the family on a budget.
*Please remember that all our homes are no-smoking, and we have a strict no-pets policy. We also remind you that we offer baby items, BBQ's, mid stay cleans, welcome baskets too, and through our friends at Kissimmee Guest Services a range of discounted attraction tickets, so please ask for more details if interested.

Overall a nice house and close to attractions!
Our only issues were with the shower heads, spend $30 for new ones. Overall, the house was clean but we did see a lot of cobwebs near the ceilings. The pool was awesome! The neighborhood was nice. We would recommend this house and we would stay here again.
Worked well for us
Although this home was fine for our needs, it needs to be spruced up a bit. There are minor problems with vertical blinds, cookware, cabinets and drawers, lighting, etc. We also found that the supplies that were to be provided were sparse and a couple non-existent. We spent our entire days away and basically only slept there. The beds were clean and comfortable. The two bathrooms were fine also. The location was very good for WDW visiting.
Location was close to theme parks and restaurants. House was nice, the furniture could be upgraded .
This house worked out well for our stay. The kitchen could use a few more items to be able to prepare meals easier.
all rental process perfect .
All rental process perfect.
Mr David Young answered all my questions.
Hope return soon
It was Nice.
Its a spacious house . There were 3 rooms , the main room was really confy , huge bed with shower and jacuzzi. The other rooms need to be updated. The beds made a lot of noise , the matress were tooo soft . The kitchen needs to be updated ASAP starting with the stove. It had a nice play room where my nephew and hubby had fun. The pool was big that was the most important thing for my family , we had fun in that pool very spacious. Regarding that area they NEED to repair the mesh , it was broken from one side. Very close to the parks , I will say it took us no more than 25 minutes to get to Sea world, Universal and Disney. Theres a lot of places around like restaurants , guft shops , outlets . The house is close to everything . Overall the house needs to be updated thats about it. Also , do not try to contact the person thru VRBO, try to call the number on the catalog thats left on the kitchen , they will grt to you.
Clean, comfortable, close
Arriving, we found the house very clean and noticed attention to detail. Everything was available that we needed for our two week vacation. The back yard gave us a great view of the park. Close to the #192 highway gave us quick access to any restaurants, shopping and Disney.
This is the 2nd year we have booked.
Orlando is well known for its theme parks, water parks, shopping malls and dining. Walt Disney World is the main attraction in Central Florida.
