Overview

Indian Point Villa Rental Photos and Description

Designer vacation home with keyless entry. South facing Pool deck not overlooked

Villa Riva is one of eight villas that we have available for rental and the perfect option for your vacation in the Central Florida area. For more information you can call me on +34 659 579 265 or via Skype, my Skype name is stephenward1107.

Villa Riva has a fully equipped kitchen with modern appliances, a luxurious lounge with wide-screen TV, a covered deck and enclosed pool, laundry facilities and a games room.

Villa Riva is located in the Indian Point resort community and is just a short drive from Disney and the other well known attractions. The property benefits from a luxurious interior designed by professionals. Climate control throughout the house ensures your comfort at any time of year.

This home is situated at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac with no through traffic.

Villa Riva is alarmed and the system is monitored 24 hours a day. We also provide each set of guests with a unique entry code for the electronic front door lock. So you do not have to worry about collecting keys after a long journey to Central Florida

The large private and not overlooked south facing pool area features a popular year round heated spa. There are plenty of sun loungers (brand new as at June 2016) as well as a table and chairs in the sheltered lanai for al fresco dining.

The pool is south facing and borders a greenbelt with no rear neighbors. Fencing to both sides provides you with privacy and security.

We recommend that you consider having the pool heated if your vacation is between October and April. If you are not sure then you can decide during your vacation as we can switch the pool heat on over the internet. This flexibility also allows you to have the pool heat switched on for some days and not others.

Villa Riva has four bedrooms, two bathrooms and comfortably sleeps up to nine guests plus one infant in a pack and play cot. A high chair and stroller are also provided for your convenience. Villa Riva is also ideal for couples and has been a popular choice for honeymooners.

After a day at the theme parks you can relax in the family room which features a large flat screen TV and digital cable box with a Brighthouse digital cable lineup and free phone calls within the USA and Canada. Free wifi covers the entire house and extends out onto the pool deck.

The living area is arranged in the Great room concept with a large fully fitted kitchen and breakfast nook.

A full range of equipment and appliances is provided including: oven and hob, microwave, dishwasher, fridge freezer, toaster, blender, coffee maker etc.

Pots, pans, and all the kitchen equipment necessary for you to prepare meals at home are provided for you. All dinnerware (plates, utensils, etc.) are also provided for your convenience.

We can even arrange a Gas BBQ to be available for your use during your stay. The top of the range washing machine and dryer are located at one end of the kitchen. Plenty of towels are also provided for your use.

Outside, the pool deck and lanai provide the perfect spot for alfresco dining or drinks by the pool.

You will sleep soundly in the master bedroom which has a King bed with a top of the line luxury hotel style mattress. There is a wall mounted flat screen TV in the master and an ensuite bathroom with double vanities and a separate shower enclosure.

The second master bedroom is just as luxurious with a queen size bed set again with a high quality mattress. The third bedroom has twin beds and shares a bathroom with the other secondary bedroom. The fourth bedroom is fitted with bunk beds and is perfect for up to three children or young adults.

The garage has been converted to a well equipped games room for your enjoyment with a wall mounted TV, Wii game console, and a combination pool table, air hockey and ping pong table.

Villa Riva is a non-smoking home. Smokers are however welcome to use the covered porch area.

Full information is provided via our web based and comprehensive welcome pages which will provide you with a wealth of information about Villa Riva and the surrounding area, supermarkets, shopping malls and restaurants.

Villa Riva is ideally located for all the attractions that central Florida has to offer.

Easy access to Disneyworld, Universal, Islands of Adventure and Seaworld are complemented by the relative proximity to Busch gardens (about 75 minutes) and Kennedy Space Center, just an hour away.

Nearer to home is a small zoo on the nearby Ponciana Boulevard just five minutes from Villa Riva.

Just over an hour will get you to Cocoa Beach on the Atlantic coast and not much more than that will get you to the Gulf of Mexico coast.

For most however Villa Riva and the Indian Point development is the ideal location for a vacation because of its location in relation to Disneyworld.

Just a short drive down Highway 192 leads to the entry to Disneyworld. The attractions of the Magic Kingdom are known globally.

Before you know it you are walking down Main Street and deciding whether to head off towards Frontierland (Big Thunder Mountain and Splash Mountain), or Tomorrowland for a quick whirl around Space Mountain.

If you have younger children (or like us a daughter who suddenly becomes a 'young child' on arrival at the Magic Kingdom) then no doubt the first port of call will be Fantasyland and a sedate boat trip on Its a Small World.

Hollywood Studios is the easiest park to get to being just two minutes from leaving Highway 192. Head off to Aerosmith and pick up a Fast Pass for Tower of Terror. Decide who wants to audition for the The American Idol Show!

Epcot takes two or three visits to even begin to appreciate all it has to offer. Soarin´ in the Land Pavillion is worth the inevitable long queue. Then its the leisurely boat ride through the Greenhouses.

As in the rest of DisneyWorld if you have your iPhone or Blackberry with you free Wifi will enable you to catch up with your e mails whilst in the line. Not a good idea however whilst riding Test Track or Mission Space!

The mile and a half walk around the World Showcases will take at least half a day. Enjoy Fish and Chips in the United Kingdom Showcase and wander around the Twinings Tea Garden.

The 360 degree cinema shows in the Canadian and French Showcases are fantastic. Watch out for the shows that may be on at the theater in front of the America Showcase, they are truly amazing and not to be missed.

If you fancy some haute cuisine then head off to France, well the Showcase anyway. Taste the best of French wines en route.

Animal Kingdom is a wonderful place. Watch out for the Yeti on Everest and don´t miss the Lion King show. Cool down in the Congo rapids and wander around 'Africa'.

Seaworld is a more leisurely day out, the Blue Horizons show is incredible. If you want something exciting ride Kraken and cool off on Atlantis.

Universal Studios again needs a few visits to appreciate all it has to offer. See how your score rates on Men in Black and consider auditioning for Fear Factor.

If you are into Harry Potter then you will love Islands of Adventure. Even if you are not then the Hulk and Spiderman will have you well entertained. Get soaked on the Bilge Barges and get more soaked on Dudleys Ripsaw falls!

If you have any interest at all in science then a trip to Kennedy Space Center is a must. Space Shuttle Atlantis forms the centrepiece of a new display area in 2013 and the Shuttle Experience is a realistic simulation of what it was like at launch.

There is a choice of bus tours including one which takes you just a few feet from the launchpad which was used for the Apollo missions and later on for the Shuttle itself. Then its on to to see a real Saturn 5 rocket and to walk the length of it (its horizontal of course!) is amazing. Then you can enjoy a bite to eat sitting directly under a Lunar module.

We have a friendly and helpful management company on call 24 hours a day who will be pleased to ensure your stay is memorable and trouble free. You will also find as owners that we are highly responsive to e mail and other forms of communication. It is our mission to ensure you have a vacation to remember and that you will wish to return time and time again.

About Stephen Ward

Although we are British nationals we moved to Spain to live in 2005. Central Florida has been our favorite vacation destination since we first went in 2001.

We do all we can to respond to inquiries as quickly as we can and a prompt service extends until and during your vacation.

We have selected an excellent management company in Alexanders who will ensure that any questions you have during your stay are dealt with.

good location

  • 3 of 5

Christine and geoff stafford uk 9th to 24th april 2016 We enjoyed our stay at villa riva, it was in a quiet area which we like, also very well equipped, it took a long time for hot water to reach the shower in the large bedroom, the one downside for us was how dark the living area was with no natural light except for windows on the kitchen side, we needed the lights on during the day, otherwise ok.

Very spacious and clean property

  • 5 of 5

The villa was clean and as advertised. Our family of four enjoyed the quiet location and spacious bedrooms and living areas. So much better than a hotel and very reasonably priced. The extensive television channels, WiFi, game room, washer and dryer, and security system were all nice perks. We found the location to be conveniently located between the Disney and Universal parks. I'm not sure I would request pool heat in the cooler months. We received pool heat for free so I can't complain, but we found the water temperature too cool to comfortably enjoy swimming in November. A great rental that won't disappoint!

Well organized home in a quiet cul-de-sac

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed our stay in this home. It has all the amenities you need for a week long vacation. To our surprise we were met with several deer grazing on the field next to the home as well as turkeys walking behind the hill by the pool. Home is well furnished and very clean. Don't be surprised as I was, this is actually a 4 bedroom home with one bedroom locked out for storage. I found this to be a little strange but it is advertised as a 3 bedroom home.

Universal Studios again needs a few visits to get round it all. See how your score rates on Men in Black and consider auditioning for Fear Factor. The Horror Make up show is amazing !

If you are into Harry Potter then you will love Islands of Adventure. Even if you are not then the Hulk and Spiderman will have you well entertained. Get soaked on the Bilge Barges and get more soaked on Dudleys Ripsaw falls!

A 24hr Walmart Superstore is two minutes away from Villa Riva so you can stock up on the way back home.

Numerous numerous restaurants are then just a short drive away. Outback is our favorite, just the thought of Cheesy chips or an Onion bloomer .......
