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

Perfect Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

This is an extremely well maintained home in a great neighbourhood about 10 minutes to Disney.The owner goes out of his way to respond promptly to any and all enquiries before, during and after the stay. The pool area is the most private of any property I have ever stayed at....many hours indeed were spent in and around the pool. I would not hesitate to recommend this home to anyone and I will definitely stay here again.

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.

Great property for the whole family- close to Disney

  • 5 of 5

Disney dream trip with family! We stayed at Joe & Petra's home with me, my husband, two kids, my sister & her two kids and our parents. It was plenty of space for all of us to sleep, enjoy dinners together and hang out. With so many people and family who lives in different parts of the country, we really wanted a place where we could all spend time together rather than shuffling into hotel rooms each night. The house is exactly as shown and described, which I know is sometimes tricky when you rent places. It was super clean with plenty of dishes, towels and lots of extras. As clearly stated in the description, small amounts of toilet paper, paper towels and soap are provided, so if you are staying longer than a couple days, just plan on grabbing some supplies at the store as you are stocking the fridge. The bedrooms & bathrooms accommodated our group perfectly. Joe was so great to work with- responded quickly with every question and provided all the details needed for a wonderful stay. The kids loved Disney, but were excited to get home to use the pool! We all had a blast cooling off in the pool each evening after a long day at the parks. I would definitely recommend this property for an affordable family stay. Thanks Joe & Petra for sharing your home with us!
