After the kids are in bed, you can sit outside with a glass of wine and enjoy the quietness that our home has to offer, because it is in a very private area of the resort.

About Sheldon and Nadine Charles

We are Canadian residents who absolutely love visiting Florida! With Canada’s minus-20 degree weather in the winter months, we look for any opportunity to visit the Sunshine State to soak up the rays at the pool, visit the theme parks, or do some great shopping!

While we have been to both the Orlando and Tampa areas frequently over the last 10 years, we decided to purchase a vacation/rental home in Kissimmee, because we get the best of everything in this area. My husband and I prefer to cook simple meals in our kitchen at Venetian Bay, while the kids go to the pool, bike or skateboard around the resort.

We have two sons, ages 15 and 12, who are quite knowledgeable about the Kissimmee area for attractions, activities, shopping and restaurants. They enjoy our home at Venetian Bay because they are not in a cramped hotel room, and they have enough space to enjoy their vacation both inside the home and on the resort grounds.

Sheldon and Nadine Charles purchased this townhome in 2014

Why Sheldon and Nadine Charles chose Kissimmee

We looked at numerous properties in the Kissimmee area, before deciding to purchase this home in Venetian Bay. The resort is located off a quiet street next to a school and fire station. When driving up to the main gate, we felt a great sense of security because of the manned security booth. Driving through the resort, the multi-coloured homes on different streets and court-yards provided a 'vacation feel' which was very appealing. We easily imagined ourselves walking to the pool, or sitting under the gazebo. The friendliness and professionalism of the Reception, Club House and Business Centre made us feel like it was 'home away from home', which is what we want our renters to feel as well!

What makes this townhome unique

Our home faces away from the parking lot and common guest areas. Because of this, it is very private and allows renters to enjoy the lovely grassy area right outside the front door. Because there is no building in front of us, you can open the curtains and windows to get a nice breeze through the home. Great for afternoon naps!

When we thought of how to upgrade the unit, we decided to use colours, furniture and accessories that would appeal to a number of renters, but also to us. We wanted a no-fuss environment that instilled calm, and was easy to maintain – for both us and our renters. We have achieved this, and hope you like it too!

Beautiful and comfortable. Felt like home.

  • 5 of 5

Traveled from May 28th to June 3rd 2017. Home was exceptionally clean welcoming and beautifully decorated.

Everything was exactly as promised and all needed information was provided in a timely, thorough and easy to understand fashion. Our daughter and God daughter (15yrs) were in love with the place as well as our poodle Riley.

It was a comfortable space to come home to after a long day in the parks. Everything we could have needed was provided and even though we came in after 9pm on the day of check in registering with security was easy and quick.

The grounds were clean the buildings well maintained and attractive. Lots of amenities provided. Home is located near many shops malls and restaurants and is very convenient to whatever you may need.

We received an excellent value and saved so much over what we would have in a hotel room including being able to bring our pet.

Sheldon and Nadine are the best and they provide a quality experience for their renters at a very reasonable price.

Clean but uncomfortable

  • 3 of 5

The home was very clean. Community was safe and well kept. The furniture in the house was very uncomfortable. It was impossible to relax in the living room. Also, you couldn't turn the AC below 75 so the upstairs bedrooms were too hot to comfortably sleep. We ended up leaving a day early because we weren't comfortable and couldn't relax in the home.

Comfortable for a small family

  • 4 of 5

The location was good and it is exactly as shown. Since it is a townhouse it is a bit small on the common areas (kitchen, dining, and living room), but comfortable enough if you are visiting parks and not spending too much time indoors.

Relaxing atmosphere, beautiful well kept grounds, and awesome customer service!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for 2 weeks with my family. We felt like we were at home at our owb house. The amenties around the area were plentiful, access to all the pools and other sport related things were readily available. The high security makes you feel comfortable letting your kids roam the complex. I have an 8 and 10.5 year old and they never felt afraid walking around the area. The house itself is furnished nicely and all the bedrooms and sitting areas are very comfortable. You have two full bathrooms, so if you come with more than 2 people, you do not have to wait. I loved the customer service, if I had any question or concern, The owners made sure that my family always had a smile on their face. Very affordable and i look forward to returning in the fall.

Town Home in Venetian Bay Resorts

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice time at the town home. We were able to get in without any trouble, when we first arrived. The town home was clean and convenient to where we were fishing.

I think we left everything in good condition. How do we get our damage deposit back?

Thanks.

Deposit Issues

  • 1 of 5

After our stay, the owner said we stained 6 towels. The owner wanted to keep our entire deposit claiming the contract said you would only get your money back if there were no damages. I offered to replace towels and have them shipped to the door. There were plenty of towels for the next guest even without the ones we used. Towels are bought at Costco and 6 towels cost 1/10th the deposit amount. Took SEVERAL email conversations, but we did receive our full deposit back.

The condo itself was nicely decorated and clean with instruction signs everywhere. We had several issues with the burners on the stove and that was frustrating. Some didn't turn on. Others would be on and cooking and all of sudden turn off. Mattresses were not very comfortable in master.

Clubhouse pool is open to guests 14 & older without supervision but if you want your kids to be able to access the game room you'll be escorting even your 17 year olds there. Machines that take coins, no chairs to sit in while you "supervise". The pool was pleasant and a nice temp in May. The birds do seem to like to target it. Hot tub around 100.

Most of our visits were to the Silver Spur arena which was close. Visited Disney one day and the drive is city streets with lights the entire way. You enter the park at the Transportation Center and take the boat or monorail over to the parks. Takes at least an hour .. 30 min drive, 30 min from parking lot to park.

What is there to see and do around Venetian Bay? Everything! Take it from us - a Canadian family who visits Kissimmee at least twice a year. It is FABULOUS! We have two teenagers who just love to be at this resort in Kissimmee because of all the active and leisurely activities they can engage in. Golf, SeaWorld, Disney, Universal, Gatorland, shopping, eating, beaches and overall relaxation has made our family vacations easy and extremely affordable.

From family friendly activities to romantic spots, you can find it all in this area. Our townhouse is very central, just 2 block from the I-192, where you can get everything you want in a vacation, both relaxing and stimulating.

Because there is so much to see and do, we recommend that you visit www.experiencekissimmee.com to plan your visit. Take advantage of the coupons/discounts for international visitors!

Our spacious townhome with full kitchen and laundry will ensure that you can enhance your family's time together, and make lasting memories in a beautiful and relaxing environment.

After a thrilling day in one of the parks, or a long day of shopping, you can relax in one of the resorts four pools/hot tub, take a leisurely walk by the lake, bike ride, or watch the sunset. Because Venetian Bay is very strict on security and maintenance, you will enjoy the freedom of knowing that the entire resort is focused on your comfort and safety.

Our townhouse is managed by our Property Manager who can be reached 24/7 for any emergencies. You are also free to contact us, the Owners, to discuss your needs. Because we strive to provide economical options to all our guests, we are happy to give advice on how to make all your activities affordable. From knowing what types of tickets to purchase at the theme parks, where to get souvenirs, or how to secure the best car rental rates - we've done it all before at very affordable prices, and are willing to share that with our renters!

For your shopping convenience for personal items, groceries, etc., Walmart, Target, Publix are a few minutes away and are directly off the I-192. Hospitals are also nearby, and the local Firestation is minutes away from this resort.

Our kids have loved the convenience of walking out the door of the townhouse and going to the lake to visit their 'lake friends' - the birds and fish. We have enjoyed walking to the Clubhouse patio and putting our feet up by the pool for the day, and also watching the lights on the lake in the evening. Even if we don't leave the resort for the day, we feel like we have accomplished the simple task of enjoying each others company. And isn't that what vacations are for?

This is also a great resort for Snowbirds who are looking to rent the home for a few months at a time. We have low monthly rates and are very accommodating to your needs.
