Overview

About the property

Quiet, as far as the ear can hear. Stars, as far as the sky can reach.

Quiet, as far as the ear can hear. Stars, as far as the sky can reach. Green, as far as the eye can see. Sumptuous detailing and designer décor. Luxe linens and mood lighting. Touches of luxury, everywhere you look.

Think you can’t have it all, and stay near Disney?

Villa Riva begs to differ.

Private and secluded, yet just minutes to all the Disney fun, this cozy home is built for families. Built for you.

The heated pool begs fun. The steamy spa invites romance. The game room calls for friendly competition. And the cushy sofas, well, they’re equally happy hosting a movie marathon or an afternoon nap.

Villa Riva is the best of all worlds – a villa both minutes to Disney, and secluded into its own little slice of paradise. Your paradise.

Welcome.

----------------------------------

♠♠♠ SPACIOUS FAMILY LIVING ♠♠♠

We know that family vacations should be about family – about eating together, playing together, and making memories together. Whether it’s just you and your newlywed, your only kiddo, or an extended family meet-at-Disney extravaganza.

Villa Riva is designed for just this kind of family vacation: When you’re not enjoying Disney, you’ll be at this home-away-from-home, dining indoors and out, splashing in the pool and organizing competitions in the game room, or gearing up for a movie marathon.

There’s an unwritten rule in Central Florida: If it’s sunny outside – and it’s almost always sunny outside! – you should be outside. Our screened pool deck and lanai are the perfect place to follow this “rule,” offering a bug-free respite for pool parties, barbecuing, outdoor dining, and soaking in the spa.

And when you head indoors, the living area is arranged in a great-room concept, featuring a large flat-screen TV and digital cable box, a Brighthouse digital cable lineup, and DVD player. Oh, and the game room is pretty sweet, too.

----------------------------------

♠♠♠ PRIVATE (AND WE DO MEAN PRIVATE) SWIMMING POOL ♠♠♠

Central Florida is the land of outdoor living and backyard pools. It’s also the land of zero privacy – of pools stacked side-by-side like dominoes, so exposed you get splashed when your neighbor’s kids jump in.

Not at Villa Riva! Villa Riva offers a Central Florida rarity: a private pool, surrounded on two sides by a privacy fence.

In a word, it’s paradise. Paradise: Sunbathing with not a neighbor to see you. Paradise: Letting the kids cannonball to their heart’s content, without worrying about who they’ll splash. Paradise: Slathering on the sunblock without worrying what’s showing. Paradise: A beautiful pool, heated when you need it. Paradise: Privacy.

As always, we care as much about safety as we do about fun. We keep your little ones safe with pool alarms on the doors that lead to the pool and spa.

----------------------------------

♠♠♠ LUXURIATE IN THE SPA ♠♠♠

If you appreciated privacy at the pool, you’ll cherish it at the hot tub. Your very own, very romantic, and very relaxing hot tub.

Allow us to set the scene: It’s night-time in Kissimmee, and the stars are out. Thousands of them, it seems. They’re twinkling in the inky sky: the Big Dipper, Orion, the North Star – they’re all there.

You step out onto the pool deck. It’s late and it’s quiet. You’ve poured yourself a frosty beer or a generous glass of wine.

The spa is bubbling. The steam is rising. You dip a toe in – perfect! You slip in, into the heat, into the bubbles, into the massaging jets.

Bliss.

----------------------------------

♠♠♠ GREEN VIEWS ♠♠♠

Oh, and that south-facing pool and bubbling spa? They don’t overlook other homes, but rather border a greenbelt with no rear neighbors. Privacy and a view? We’ll take it!

----------------------------------

♠♠♠ FAST, WHOLE-HOME WIFI INTERNET ♠♠♠

Need to stay connected? No problem. Our high-speed WiFi internet covers the entire home, and even extends out over the pool deck. You are go for poolside selfies.

----------------------------------

♠♠♠ LUXURY TOUCHES ♠♠♠

Vacation should feel a little finer, a little fancier, a little more sumptuous than everyday life – right?

Villa Riva is your touch of luxury. Our home benefits from the talents of professional interior designers, who furnished our home in plush seating, soft linens, impeccable taste, and all the other special touches you’d expect.

----------------------------------

♠♠♠ KIDS LOVE THE REPTILE-THEMED BEDROOM ♠♠♠

Have an animal lover in the house? Villa Riva’s reptile-themed kid’s bedroom is decorated with birds, frogs, gators and other Florida reptiles, and finished in a homey green-and-coffee wetlands color palette.

And hey, if the kids aren’t into cold blooded creatures, they’re sure to love our second twin bedroom – bunkbeds! With a TV. The big kid of your bunch will enjoy the exclusive view from the top bunk.

At Villa Riva, you always get to be the fun parent. Win-win.

----------------------------------

♠♠♠ ALL AGES DELIGHT IN THE GAME ROOM ♠♠♠

Fancy some indoor fun? We converted Villa Riva’s garage into a well equipped game room, complete with a wall-mounted TV, kid-friendly Wii game console, and a combination pool-air hockey-ping pong table. Who’s up for a friendly round?

----------------------------------

♠♠♠ FULLY EQUIPPED KITCHEN ♠♠♠

There’s just something about having breakfast in your pajamas, especially on a late vacation morning. Even if you don’t feel like making lunch or cooking dinner, you definitely appreciate your coffee with a side of slippers.

Villa Riva’s fully equipped kitchen is perfect, for anything from a breakfast of cereal to a multi-course family dinner. You have the standard oven, stove cooktop/hob, fridge/freezer, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, and dishwasher, as well as pots and pans, dinnerware (plates, glasses, flatware, etc. for up to 8 guests), and a host of other kitchen equipment, gadgets and doodads. Please, make yourself home, if only to find the cereal bowls.

----------------------------------

♠♠♠ LOTS OF AMENITIES FOR KIDS ♠♠♠

Parents know: Packing for a vacation with kids, especially little kids, is the worst. The absolute worst. There’s no way you can fit all the required baby gear in your suitcases, but of course, you need your littlest family members to be safe and happy while traveling.

We care about your children (and your sanity), so we’ve stocked all our villas with high chairs, strollers, pack-and-plays, and other baby gear. Whatever you need, let us know. We have lots of baby and toddler accoutrements on hand, so we’ll be happy to accommodate.

----------------------------------

♠♠♠ RECENT UPGRADES ♠♠♠

We take great pride and joy in our vacation homes. That’s why personally inspect our rentals at least twice a year, to be sure that everything adheres to our high standards. What’s more, every year, we improve and upgrade our villas.

To us, “good enough” is never good enough; we want our vacation rentals to exceed your expectations.

----------------------------------

♠♠♠ FULLY LICENSED AND INSURED ♠♠♠

We are fully licensed at both the county and state levels. First and foremost, that means we follow the rules and prioritize your safety: We’ve installed fire extinguishers, smoke alarms, and emergency lighting in all the right places. We maintain tight safety measures at our pools. And all our homes are subject to periodic inspection, by the county and state, so you know that we’re still up-to-date on those safety requirements.

Our vacation rentals are legal and above-board. We pay our taxes. You can check our existence in the public records. (Feel free to ask how. We’re happy to share.)

It all boils down to this: You, your family, and your friends are safe with us. Your booking is secure. Your vacation rental is guaranteed.

The only thing standing between you and your dream vacation, is the Book button. Click away!

About Stephen Ward

♠♠♠ TRUSTWORTHY ♠♠♠

We get it – you don’t know us from the next guy. And simply trusting that we’re trustworthy? You weren’t born yesterday.

But trustworthy, we are – and we’ll do our best to prove it, well before you commit to booking. It starts with our response times (often within minutes, never more than a few hours). We go out of our way to answer all of your questions. And we’re honest about it; we won’t fib or exaggerate. We won’t tell you a home is 10 minutes from Disney, when it’s really 30 minutes in normal traffic.

What’s more, we’re legal, we’re licensed, and we’re insured – and we can prove it. (Just ask. We’ll happily show you where and how to verify.)

And if that’s not enough, just have a look at our reviews. You can’t fake the trust our renters have in us!

----------------------------------

♠♠♠ LIGHTNING-FAST, PERSONALIZED SERVICE ♠♠♠

Customer service is the cornerstone of our business, and we know it all begins the moment you first email us. We’re always at the ready, so we respond generally within the hour and sometimes within minutes. That’s 24 hours a day, every day of the year. We’ll never leave you hanging.

Of course, it’s not just about how quickly we respond, but about the quality of our responses. This is the part where we tell you how much we love the Disney area, and how excited we are to share it with you. And did we mention? We’ve been on both sides of the fence – more than 15 years ago, we first came here as renters – so we know what matters to you.

Want some great restaurant recommendations? We’ve got ‘em.

Need discount park tickets? We know how to snag them.

Searching for the cheapest car rentals? Not a problem.

Seeking the best microbrews in Florida? We’ll point the way.

Looking for Segway rentals? We know where.

When you rent with us, you’re treated to very personal (and very free!) vacation planning and concierge service. Everything you need, plus all that you could want. So go on, mine our knowledge for all it’s worth.

Why Stephen Ward chose Kissimmee

♠♠♠ PRIVATELY OWNED AND LOCALLY MANAGED ♠♠♠

Have you ever lived a Vacation Rental Nightmare? It’s 9 p.m. and the toilet’s overflowing. Or you’re fresh out of clean clothes and the washing machine breaks down mid-cycle. Or perhaps you’re locked out, or you can’t find the wine opener, or you just need a late-night restaurant recommendation.

You call, and you call, and you call. But the property manager doesn’t pick up. Or, she does but she’s based across the country and has no local, emergency contacts to help you tonight. You’ll have to wait until tomorrow; they’ll be there sometime between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m.

Suddenly, your vacation has morphed into something very different than the relaxing escape you had hoped it would be.

We know that the details – the big AND little details – can make or break your vacation. That’s why we’re committed to you, to your experience. We’re local – in just a few minutes, we can be at your front door – and we’re available 24/7, every day of the year, via phone, text or email. What’s more, we have the local professional contacts to handle any emergency, no matter the hour. We’ll get that toilet fixed, tonight.

Oh, and as we mentioned, we’ve been in the Disney area for 15 years.

What makes this villa unique

♠♠♠ A STRESS-FREE WELCOME ♠♠♠

We may pride ourselves on personalized service, but part of our quality promise is actually just the opposite: We’ve taken the personal out of check-in. Forget having to meet us at the office, on our terms, during our business hours.

We’re happy to say, we’ve gone digital – at least, as far as check-in is concerned. All of our rentals have keyless entry, so there are no lockboxes, no keys to collect, and no stressful meet-ups. (We all know how fun those are, especially when you throw in elements like a delayed flight.)

When you book with us, we’ll send you a digital welcome guide, packed with helpful information about your rental and the surrounding area. And of course, we’ll let you know how to check-in.

♠♠♠ LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! ♠♠♠

If you’re looking for a great location, but refuse to compromise on convenience and space, on comforts and affordability – welcome. Four-bedroom Villa Riva is a welcoming getaway in Indian Point, a popular community located just a hop, skip and a jump from Disney. (See bullet points, below, for drive times.)

Villa Riva manages to pack two important location musts – privacy and accessibility – into a single home: Close to Disney, but not too close, the villa’s cul-de-sac setting grants you privacy and quiet – even though you’re only 20 minutes to the theme parks.

In between your private retreat and downtown Disney, you’ll have easy access to all the necessities. ALDI and a 24-hour Walmart Supercenter are just two minutes away, should you need to stock up on something – even at 2 a.m. Additionally, there are plenty of restaurants, from big-name chains to best-kept Kissimmee secrets, within a few miles of Villa Riva. (Ask about our favorites!)

We’re adamant about ethics and honest rental descriptions, so we’ll never embellish how close our villas are to the destinations that matter to you. So, let’s cut to the chase: Villa Riva is located about 10 miles to Disney. In are-we-there-yet?!? terms, this means:

• Hollywood Studios and Epcot: 20 minutes (faster, if you hit the green lights!)

• Animal Kingdom and Sea World: 25 minutes

• Universal Studios: 35 minutes

• Magic Kingdom and LEGOLAND: 40 minutes

• Busch Gardens and the Kennedy Space Center: Just over an hour

Quiet and clean with a great pool.

  • 4 of 5

My family and I were very happy with our stay. The house was clean, the location fabulous. It was private and quiet, but has easy access to the main attractions. We all very much enjoyed the pool and spa. I would recommend this property and would stay there again.

Great house and great price

  • 5 of 5

Can't ask for more for that rate. It has been a pleasant stay for us (4 adults plus 2 kids). We stayed for 4 nights. The house is very clean and has spacious kitchen and living room. The master bedroom is large enough. The two guests are less roomy. But they are functional enough. There are two baths. The swimming pool is very good though you need to arrange for heating the pool a day early (for extra charge). The location is good enough. Overall we liked our stay and will consider for a second visit.

Great house and so close to Disney!

  • 4 of 5

We really loved the house! The pool was great too! And super close to Disney World, which was a huge plus. Located in a very quiet neighborhood. We were a little bummed out by the "game room" though. The ping pong table had no net to play with. The pool table was missing balls and the cue sticks were missing the tips and no chalk. Very hot in the garage so thankfully there were fans in there since you can not open the garage. Little surprised that we had to supply the paper towels, toilet paper and dish soap. But there is a Walmart located very close which helped out a lot! All in all, very nice place to stay. We enjoyed our time swimming in the pool and really enjoyed the house! Would go back again!

Owner's Response: Great to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Villa Riva ! Just wanted to confirm for the benefit of other guests that the game room issues were attended to once they had been reported. In addition (again to clarify) there is toilet paper supplied in each bathroom but as we set out in the information provided to guests (and of course as with any vacation rental) supplies generally are for guests to purchase in accordance with their own preferences.
