About Joe and Petra

My wife Petra and I have been married since 2003 and we have two children, Sebastian, 11 and Natalie, 9. We acquired the home you will be (are) staying in April of 2011, after vacationing in Kissimmee the month prior. We had such an amazing time visiting theme parks, rollerblading in the neighbourhood, and just spending quality family time around the pool. During our visit in 2011, we hired a real estate agent, viewed a few homes and low and behold....What we love about the area is that it has something for everyone. The theme parks,as we soon learned, are designed for family fun. Both of my parents and my mother-in-law have been to the theme parks and have thoroughly enjoyed their experience; they still talk about how enjoyable it was to see the children having so much fun. The area is also known for it's abundance of excellent golf courses. Right behind our home, for example, beyond the green space, is Mystic Dunes Golf Club. You are just minutes away from great golf at this championship course and many others in the area. Pack a lunch and head out to Daytona Beach or Cocoa beach for the day where you can park on the beach and enjoy the sunset or, venture out to the Kennedy Space Centre in Cape Canaveral, all just one hour or so away.

Over the past four years we have gradually renovated the villa to the point you see it now. Although we have a few more projects to complete and some decor to update, we hope you will enjoy the many enhancements we have made to the property thus far. We strive to make our property stand out amongst the many properties available. We believe that the time families and friends share together are special; so too should be the home they are staying at! We hope you enjoy your stay at our family vacation home and wish you many wonderful memories.

Sincerely,

The Roccatani Family

Joe and Petra purchased this villa in 2011

Great place to call home.

  • 5 of 5

The home looks exactly as you see them in the pictures, beautiful. The home and the pool are well maintained. There was 9 of us and it never felt crowed. Being minutes away from all the Disney's parks and all the food on 192 (the main road threw the area) made this an easy choice for us.

Joe and Petra cared about us. The gave us quick and accurate info for everything about the house and more. We would come back again. If you never rented a house before, don't hesitate it is easy and safe.

We have been staying at this villa for a number of years now and we have never been disappointed, the villa is well equipment and clean and about 10 mins from Disney, and pretty central to everything you would need. Highly recommend this villa for anyone visiting Florida.

Perfect vacation home for a family getaway.

  • 5 of 5

The property itself was exactly as described. It is conveniently located in a quiet and pleasant neighbourhood with close and easy access to main highways. We found the location to be very private. The home was spacious and clean and equipped with modern major appliances. The proximity of the house to Disney World and in particular Disney Springs gave us lots of opportunities to take advantage of these venues. The well maintained and sizeable pool was a highlight of the stay. The owner, Joe, was more than helpful. Not in just making the arrangements for our stay, but also with tips and advice for making our stay in Florida more enjoyable.

We look forward to hosting you again in the future. Sincerely, Joe and Petra

NIce family home near Disney

  • 5 of 5

As a former rental home owner I found that Joe looked after us with great detail and concern for our holiday. He is a genuine guy and provides a really comfortable and nice vacation home. It is easily accessible to the attractions and restaurants. You do need a car but you do need one where ever you are. We slept well and depending on what you want to do you can BBQ, provide your your own meals and just chill out - its up to you. My wife says the washing machine were top notch so you may not need to take as much luggage as you think. Good value and thanks Joe and Petta for the use of your home.

Thanks for taking the time to write a review. Joe and Petra
