About Patsy and Bill Hood

Bill and I have three grown children which are all married. We have eight (update 10) grandchildren. We enjoy boating, swimming and camping as a family. Bill is a builder and enjoys wood working projects ie. remodeling homes and building boats.

Patsy and Bill Hood purchased this house in 2009

Why Patsy and Bill Hood chose Kissimmee

When we were looking for a vacation rental in the Kissimmee FL area, we wanted to be close to the theme parks so the family could come visit and have many things to do. We were first looking at condos, but our agent didn't think they were right for us. He was right! He said he thought we would enjoy our private pool since we were planning to spent a lot of time at our home with family and friends. It is nice not to have to pack up and walk to a pool every time we want to swim. We also like the fact that we are very close to shopping, restaurants, mini golf, Disney World and many other theme parks. We find it nice to go to the parks for a few hours, come home for meals and let kids nap or rest then go back for evening activities.

What makes this house unique

We have some very good neighbors in Sunset Lakes that we enjoy seeing when we get down to FL. We enjoy evening walks around the community and bike rides with the family when they are with us. One grandson loves to sit by the nearby lake and fish (catch and release), others enjoy swimming in our pool, riding their bikes and just playing with games and things at the house.

Great stay! Excellent location with easy access to shopping, food and Disney parks.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely home with plenty of space. Very satisfied with its location. The neighborhood was quiet and the gated access was a nice perk. Getting to Disney was a breeze (minus the traffic, but it wasn't that big of a deal). The little things this home included make it a great catch. The beach towels, pool toys, the kids books, board games, movies, etc. were an excellent addition. We had no problem keeping busy. The pool was great! We had a few little hiccups with the pool heat but one phone call got the problem fixed quickly! Oh, and the kids room is super cool. Great design and lots of sleeping space.

Wow Wow Wow

  • 5 of 5

We booked this home for a two week Christmas Vacation, from the moment we arrived it was amazing. Three adults and our two boys aged 9 and 11 loved the house. The kid’s room was awesome, the garage with air hockey, and the pool were all fantastic. We spent lots of time playing air hockey and just hanging out in the garage playing games. But by far the pool was the place to be. We spent hours in the pool, from morning until night. It was also great to BBQ while everyone swam. The kids loved all the pool toys and couldn’t wait to get in every morning. The adults lounged all day reading by the pool, what a way to relax in this fantastic house. The house is extremely well kept and is in the perfect gated community. I want to thank Patsy and Bill for going the extra mile of decorating the house for Christmas. When we drove up and the lights were on everyone was so excited. This was our best family vacation ever, and one of the best Christmas’ and we want to thank you for helping to make this happen.The home is close to everything you need within minutes and not far from all the parks. We are already getting ready to book again! I highly recommend this property to rent you wont be disappointed.

Amazing Home for Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The minute you enter this home you know it is fabulous! If you have young children, the "kids" room is amazing! My grandchildren were so excited when they saw this room. While at the house, if they weren't in the pool, they were playing in this room. The raised "walkway" in the kids room has an area to sit and read. The room is decorated perfectly! Everything you need has been provided. The pool is just steps from the living room and master suite. The garage is set up as a play room for all the family...TV, air hockey, games and much more. The house is beautiful, well maintained and very conveniently located. We will definitely be staying here again in the future. Loved it!!!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review! We are so happy when people stay in our home and enjoy it as much as we do. We are glad that your grandchildren had fun while they were not at the parks. We try to have things for the children/grandchildren to do and play with so all can relax when you get/take some down time. Again, thanks for the review. Pat and Bill

Home so wonderful we almost didn't want to go to Disney!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at this house! The kids tree house style bunk beds were so much fun, our little girl would have been happy staying there all day!!

The house was very clean and the pool was immaculate!! Also everything you might need from kitchen appliances to pool toys are right at your fingertips. The rooms were a nice size and it was such a plus to have 2 full bathrooms.

The table was beautifully set when we arrived and the Disney touches throughout the house made us that much more excited about our trip!!

We loved having all of the conveniences of home even while on vacation!!! The fact that it is in a great location and close to everything was an added bonus!!!

We loved our stay and would recommend this house to anyone!!

Family Vacation with the In-laws

  • 3 of 5

We are a family of four, with a 10 year old and a 2 year old. Overall we enjoyed our stay. The pool was perfect, and the kids loved the cool treehouse-style bunk beds. The issues we had were small, but the condo could use some improvements. My review is based on our experience. I would stay here again for the convenience and the value. It was affordable. The pool and grill were clean. It is obvious the home is managed by property managers and lacks the personal cleanliness and personality when run by the owners themselves.

The condo wasn't as clean as I would have liked. The linens and towels were sub-par. The were low end hotel quality. The pillows were old and flat. The master queen bed sags in the middle and offers little support. The guest bedroom TV didn't work. We called maintenance and forwarded the issue to the owner. It never got fixed. We ended up going to Walmart to buy a cable so my in laws could watch TV.

There was nothing available in the kitchen for the first day. No salt, pepper, trash bags, paper towels, etc. We only had 1 1/2 rolls of toilet paper. I've rented many VRBO/Homeaway and usually there is enough supplies for at least a day or so.

My in laws room had a infestation of small ants. In their bed and on the nightstand. There were multiple cans of bug spray in the laundry room, so I am assuming that this is an on-going issue.

The handle in the guest bath broke off after the first shower. We had to use a wrench to turn it on and off.

Owner's Response: Kerrie, I would be more concerned about your review had we not just left our vacation home on Oct. 5th ourselves. We had been there just before you and done a lot of general maintenance on our home. The pool deck was painted, grill cleaned (which you acknowledged), a toilet seat replaced, changed furnace filter, did all around general maintenance of the things we noticed like we do each time we come down. As far as the towels, I brought a new stack of thick quality towels down when we came to add to the collection. They were in the cabinet behind the toilet and others are in the hall closet. I always bring new ones when I come to replace old or stained ones. I did save some "hotel quality" ones because I use them when I wash my hair. I went through the sheets and got rid of any that had stains of any kind. They are now rags in the garage closet. As for the mattress, it is about 3 years old. I never have any problem sleeping in there. People might like thicker pillows, my husband likes flat ones, I use two. I can bring thick pillows next trip down in Nov. As for the TV, you may have contacted management, but I got no communication from you at all about the TV or anything else. When you broke the handle in the bathroom management should have been contacted so it could have been replaced. The cleaners notified the manager of the broken handle and it is now replaced. There are always trash bags in all the cans, toilet paper in all bathrooms, and a dish washing cube for the dishwasher for your first wash, and a hotel size soap in the bathrooms. I thought I left paper towels when we left also. As for the ants, we saw one bug while we were there and had pest control come out Oct. 6th to spray inside and outside as they do on a regular basis. We do leave spray in the closet for your convenience because you never know when you will see ants even with the pest control. Sorry you had these issues. Hope you enjoyed your vacation in spite of the small issues you had with our home.
