About the property

Peace and Comfort in a Perfect Location! The Place You Deserve!

Our advantages when comparing to other vacation homes in the area:

• Perfect location! Quiet place and close to nature. Just two minutes by car is the famous Avenue 192 (restaurants, shops and attractions). A 24 hours Pharmacy is 3 minutes away. In 5 minutes you find a 24 hours Walmart. Just 10 minutes drive and you arrive at Walt Disney World; in about 15 minutes you reach Universal Studios and SeaWorld. (If you see other vacation homes, please check this information with internet maps because many properties do not put the real distance in their description).

• We just renewed the decor and got some new furniture - internet link to see the updated photos:

• You can also see the house in advance with a 3D virtual tour:

• The manager of the property has a degree in Costumer Service by Disney University. He is available 24/7 and he is fluent in English, Spanish, Portuguese and Italian.

• We have coupons available and also the possibility to get park tickets with up to 40% off!

• Rarely will you find a house like ours, which has invested heavily in health and safety of our guests: all the air-conditioning ducts were cleaned and sterilized; another company conducted several tests in the property: tap water quality (drinking water), the amount of radon gas, mold, asbestos and lead in the environment. This is a very serious issue because many houses here are old and just renovated without fixing these problems. You don’t want to risk and get cancer from your vacation! Be aware and request it from every house you see – ask for the documentation to prove it!

• Every time a guest leaves, a company comes to clean the house and they do a special service that includes a organic disinfectant in bathrooms and all places of constant handlings (telephone, door knobs, cabinets and drawers, remote controls, switches, taps, etc.) - we invest extra for your comfort and safety.

• This house also has a pest control plan and insurance.

• Wireless Internet throughout the house, super fast: 60Mbps !! (Very rare to find another house with such a fast internet!)

• Plasma TV and DVD player in every room and in the living room as well. More than 800 free channels from all over the world and over 5,000 free movies and series! (Very rare to find another home with this advantage!). Home Theater in the living room.

• Remember to check the reviews from the houses you see. We have excellent reviews and guests that always come back and also refer us to family and friends!

• Alarm system and external cameras for your safety.

• Condominium with security (without gate, so you don’t waste time stopping and typing passwords), also community pool, playground for children and a sport complex (all inclusive – just 1 minute walk). We provide sport balls and tennis rackets for your convenience.

• Once again we won Gold Medal from the Orlando Vacation Home Association!

• Our pool is facing south – so it has sunlight all day long!

• Hydro massage and chromo therapy available at the pool and in the bathrooms.

• The pool has protective screen (insects and leaves) and remote control for the water and air jets; and also LED lights that changes color. For an additional fee you can have heated pool water up to 87F (most vacation homes heat It only to 80F or 83F). There is a plastic chest full of pool toys and floats.

• Spa with LED light, glass bricks and waterfall.

• Towels (bath and pool) in extra quantities for your convenience (we know how unpleasant it is to be washing towels and waiting to dry to be able to reuse them).

• Beautiful view of the lake and the forest, with a fountain and swans.

• Chromo therapy light in the master bathroom (with remote control).

• Safe box available.

• Video library, music library and books available.

• Telephone with free calls (US, Canada and US territories).

• Game room with several options of table games, toys, table tennis, darts, basketball arcade, TV with DVD player and video games (more than 80 games!). There is also an electric popcorn machine!

• We provide cleaning supplies* and basic personal hygiene items* - most vacation homes don’t offer anything at all! Even toilet paper! How absurd!).

• Parking space for two cars and the possibility to park in the street if you receive visitors.

• Light and ceiling fan with remote control in the master bedroom.

• The beds have orthopedic mattresses (less than 2 years of use) and extra bedding (anti-allergic).

• Full kitchen with appliances and extra utensils, dish towels, table cloths, liquid detergent*, detergent for the dishwasher*, and other amenities.

• Front door with password (this avoids problems of losing the keys and it allows all the members of your travel group to have access to the house at any time).

• Barbecue with accessories available. There is a cooler box and a themed cooler in the pool area (you can fill it with ice and leave your drinks there).

• Central air-conditioning system (cool or heat the rooms) with filter perfume.

• Several outlets and USB ports in the house to charge your electronics. The TVs have HDMI cable if you want to connect your computer or tablet.

• Washing machine and dryer (detergent included*). Iron and board as well.

• The kids rooms have a thematic decoration.

• We provide the mail box key for our guests, so they can do online shopping and ask to deliver at the vacation home.

• Smoke detectors in every room and also a fire extinguisher.

• We can provide crib, stroller, high chair and other baby itens.

• Lots of extra space to store your luggage, clothes and shopping bags.

• You will love to stay here! For sure! )

* Sufficient supply for the first days of your stay.

About Francis Giovanella

He has a degree in Tourism and also serves as a chaplain in Florida Hospital. Francis comes from a Italian family who emigrated to South Brazil. He has been to the five continents and has lived in Australia, Brazil, Peru and now in the USA. This vast international experience made him a polyglot and gave him the ability to deal well with people and different cultures.

Francis Giovanella purchased this house in 2014

Why Francis Giovanella chose Kissimmee

The North Kissimmee/Celebration area is known for the high level in quality of life and social indices. The weather is nice all year around and the immense natural areas give it a small-town sense, even having the whole structure of a metropolis. Tourism brings a wide range of services and facilities available, not to mention that the city's infrastructure in this region is always kept impeccable! The proximity to the beaches and the famous theme parks and attractions in Orlando/Kissimmee is also a detachable quality. Finally, we are in a wonderful location, whether to live or to travel. Everyone is welcome!

What makes this house unique

There are many other advantages of staying in this vacation home: mainly the low costs, safety, comfort, privacy and the opportunity to experience the American way of life. You also have the opportunity to shop online and ask to deliver at your vacation home!

This house is fully furnished and is equipped with all bed linen and bath/kitchen appliances and utensils. All bedrooms have LED TV with DVD player! There is a central heating system and A/C, smoke alarms, fire extinguisher, first aid kit, and security system.

There is a remote controled pool with lake view and color LED light, protected with a screen cage (against insects and leaves), and it has heated water (optional). Next to the pool there is a small spa with whirlpool.

This house is inside a condominium that offers security service and even a community pool, with the entire infrastructure for residents. There is also a playground and a sports complex!

It is worth mentioning that our manager speaks English, Spanish, Italian and Portuguese. He is always available to help with any questions or further information about the house or tourist attractions. There is a possibility to get discounts in parks and stores through the contacts we have with the staff of these sites!

This house has recently been renovated to provide more comfort and convenience, so some details of the decor and fixtures may be different on your arrival. Even the garage can now be used as a game room!

We hope you can enjoy your stay and that it may be the perfect vacation for you! Thank you for choosing Palm Springs Vacation Home!

Amazing Place for Rest, Relaxation and Recreation!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great home away from home with all the amenities you could ask for. Our time there, with our 12 and 13 year-old grandchildren, was virtually stress-free, due in no small part to the friendly and professional services of the owner, Francis. We have booked through VRBO numerous times in the past but Francis rose above our already high expectations and made the whole experience, from pre-booking through to our departure, as seamless and enjoyable as could possibly be. Even though this particular community is not gated, it is quiet and peaceful, and the setting for this house, backing onto the natural waterscape, is an amazing place to stay for the day and/or return to after taking in all that Orlando, Kissimmee and central Florida have to offer! Everything inside the house is perfect for relaxation, food prep and entertainment too! Whenever we get to head back to this part of the world in the future (likely with more of our grandchildren), we will certainly be making Francis our first contact, with the hope that we might be blessed with this wonderful vacation home being available to us again!

Beautiful holiday home in great location.

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful two weeks here in October.

From booking the home, tochecking out, Francis was so helpful and made our stay stress free.

The villa is very spacious and has everything you need, little touches like drinks in the fridge when we arrived, make all the difference.

The pool is fantastic and so peaceful. The views and wildlife were amazing.

Great location, quiet, but minutes away from the 192 and only 30 minutes from the airport.

Thanks for a great family holiday.

The house was great, will certainly be back

  • 4 of 5

Overall the experience at the Chatham Park house was wonderful. The advertisements held true in it's approximation to all of the big area parks and nearby shopping / entertainment / restaurants. The house was stocked with towels, kitchen utensils, books and pretty much any little accessory you could imagine. I brought my toddler age children and found the house to be very kid friendly - we were provided a crib, high chair and even a baby bath! The house was clean and tidy. The ducks came to visit us everyday and it was almost like a bird sanctuary! Francis was a kind and attentive host and assisted us however he could.

The reason for the 4, and not 5 stars however is due to a few minor incidences. Upon arrival, the cleaning team had removed the battery from the automatic front door lock and we had to wait for about 30 minutes before we were able to get a key to unlock the door (Note: Francis was right on top of it as soon as we were able to reach him and even followed up with us the next day). Another minor issue was that the television had internet streaming as opposed to cable. Normally that's a great thing, as it allows thousands more channels and options, but we found it tremendously difficult to locate a program / movie and then download it, wait for a streaming option only for the program to constantly freeze up (like every 20 seconds-was horribly annoying) and buffer. Kids weren't to happy to miss their Dr.McStuffins, but the pool sure made up for it!

Overall, I would recommend this home to anyone, at anytime - especially those of you with families. It was a great place and we are looking forward to coming back soon.

Owner's Response: Thank you Pauline. It was great to have you here as well; and it was a pleasure to serve you! I am so sorry that you faced these difficulties during your stay. You can be sure I did my best to solve the battery problem as soon as I could. We also contacted the cleaning company to avoid it to happen again. You should have told us about the internet TV problem. After you left the property we realized that somehow the internet configuration was changed. But even so we now have faster internet at the house and also a outdoor antenna that provides more than 60 channels. We hope you enjoyed our gift and we hope to see you again! :)

As a Senator I have been to so many places, but my experience here in Disney was amazing! Francis is awsome in costumer service and we had such a wonderful time. The house is clean, confortable and well equiped - everything we needed was there! I just loved the bed - so confortable I had a hard time to get up in the mornings! We loved the pool area and the view - the sunset was an expectacle every day! The kids also liked the game room so much. Overall we would gladly stay again next time we're in the Orlando area. I highly recomend this place.

We loved it at the Palm Springs villa

The booking process went smooth. We enjoyed the pool and the view. The owner was extremely helpful with info and keeping in touch with us. We told him we need the house for a small even and he left us extra trash bags and a welcome gift. Overall we'll go back anytime. Thank you Francis.
