About Jancis Shepherd

You are invited to share the Shepherd family holiday home for your vacation. We bought this home in 2001 and have had many fabulous holidays with our 3 daughters and their friends.

Jancis Shepherd purchased this villa in 2001

Why Jancis Shepherd chose Kissimmee

We chose VDL in Winter Garden as it is safe, secure, restful and well located for Disney, Universal and the many restaurants, shopping Malls and local, State Parks which we enjoy. Having stayed in both smaller homes and larger homes we realised that a successful ingredient fro a holiday is having enough space to be with your family and friends but also to be able to have a large enough home to have personal down time. This is a lspacious house where you will feel comfortable and relaxed, many 3 bed room properties are tiny and cramped and do not give the feeling of relaxation you desire for restful holiday.

What makes this villa unique

A spacious, comfortable, well decorated and maintained home with all amenities including Wi Fi. We also have a freshwater drinking filter system so you do not need to buy bottled water.

This home was Wonderful place to stay. My family and I were first timers to Florida and all that it has to offer. This home was actually booked through a family member we stayed with so I had no clue what to expect. I have to say we are a family of 5 plus we had a few extra with us and this home more than accommodated all of us. It was very clean and super cozy. Very clean gated community and Super convenient to places like Universal studios and Disney. We managed to squeeze in 2 beautiful beaches (Siesta keys and Clear water) and they were within an 1 1/2 to 2 hr drive. The pools are conveniently located within walking distance (my personal favorite is the heated pool about a 10 min walk away). Best part for us with a large group and teenage boys that like to eat is that the kitchen was fully stocked with about everything (appliance and dish wise) our house had so buying food and cooking at home to save money was a huge plus. There is a supermarket Publix located about 15 min drive away we found to be our favorite place to get food. My husband and I are both agreed that Florida is going to be on the list for a 2017 family vacation and I would absolutely Love to stay here again. :o)

Owner's Response: Thank you, we enjoy cooking and entertaining, therefore the villa has all the facilities to enable this. We enjoy the beaches too, Siesta quay is going to be added to our list. The pools at VDL are always a delight and we like talking to other guests and residents to gain tips re Florida.

Totally Awesome

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this place. We were here for 8 days and enjoyed every minute of it. It is very roomy, more then enough room for the 8 of us. It is very clean and I loved the décor and the enclosed front room, which I had my coffee in every morning. It felt like home and not a vacation spot. The owners were very nice to deal with and very accommodating. They answered my emails and questions in a very timely manner, same day. It's quite close to everything. We went to Disney, Universal Studios, Clearwater beach (1 1/2 hour drive) and Siesta Keys which was a nice 2 hour drive very, very easy to get to from this location. The kids enjoyed every min. of this vacation. This place had everything they needed for ages 9 to 18. I want to thank Jancis and Tony for allowing us to rent their home. I look forward to renting it again in the future. Great place.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your thoughtful review. We appreciate hearing our guests experiences and tips for what they have enjoyed locally and a little further away. Siesta Key is now on our list! We also enjoy Clearwater, the dolphin boats, Tarpon springs- the natural sponges and St Petersburg and the glass blowing factory and museum. Lots to do and see as well as Disney!

Wonderful home in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful home, plus the location is perfect! It is just minutes from the Disney Parks and Disney Springs! The owner was very easy to communicate with and sent detailed information about the house and area well before our trip. She included instructions for getting thru security, things to do in the community, and gave lots of information about local restaurants and attractions. The home was so comfortable! It is very well maintained and we had no problems the entire stay! We really appreciated that this home was in a gated community with 24 hour security! This is a wonderful home for a family. There is plenty of room to spread out and relax! The porch is a great place to sit and watch the world go by! Plus, it features real glass windows so it can be used all year round! We hope to be back soon!

Great place for a Great price

  • 5 of 5

This vacation was excellent, except for the cool weather, and our stay at this location was great. Upon our arrival, we found that Julie had the home spotless. This trip it was just my wife and myself, but there was enough room that we could have brought at least four or more of our grandkids. This will be a strong contender for future stays when we have the kids with us. The home is fully furnished, 3 bedrooms with several more pull out beds, 2 baths, and a sun room (conservatory I believe the Brits call it). I checked the mileage and it is right at 10 miles to the gate to pay for parking to the Magic Kingdom. There are plenty of eating places near by and we found that "Millers Bar and Grill" was a very good bang for the buck and only about 1 mile away. The only draw back was the community hot tub (2) (was not a private hot tub at the home), swimming pool (2), and community center was a short drive (about 3 min). This home was an excellent choice for our vacation and we hope to be able to use it again.
