About the property

Incredible House, Incredible Location, Incredible Value

Our beautiful villa was not simply renovated, it was just about rebuilt in 2015. With a few of minor exceptions all new everything both inside & out. All 4 bathrooms now have walk in showers, new tiles, vanities & fixtures ; new floor coverings throughout; new kitchen cabinets, granite counter tops, new appliances including laundry equipment; new blinds and window treatments; new furniture, mattresses, linens, crockery, utensils etc.; resurfaced pool; 9 wall mounted flat screen tvs; new patio furniture & grill. Less obvious but important improvements include; memory foam mattresses on all beds; new heating & cooling system with dual zones to keep both levels of house comfortable; separate heating and A/C system in the games room (garage); huge 105 gallon energy efficient water heater; new pool heater and an intelligent variable speed pump to allows the heater to operate 14 hours per day.

When you combine the features of the house with it`s South facing lake front location in the popular gated community of Sunset Lakes and proximity to theme parks, restaurants and stores you know you have found the ideal place for your family`s (or families`) vacation.

The house has 6 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. Three bedrooms have king beds and 3 have 2 twin beds. With a queen sized sofa-bed the den serves double duty and converts to a 7th bedroom when needed.

About Diane

Retired but keeping busy.

Diane purchased this house in 2015

Why Diane chose Kissimmee

We have enjoyed great success with a smaller vacation rental home just a few minutes away from Sunset Lakes. We decided to buy a second, larger property and were fortunate to find this house that ticked all the boxes for a vacation rental property in this area. Close to Disney, close to restaurants, close to highways, gated community, south facing pool, lake frontage. The fact that the property was in disrepair was a plus from our point of view as it gave us the opportunity to rebuild and modernize so we can offer a 5 star rental from the get-go.

What makes this house unique

Unique? Very few rental properties can match the collective benefits we provide in terms of:

LOCATION, (excellent),

CONDITION (newly renovated & furnished),

EXTRAS (eg. walk in showers in all 4 bathrooms, dual zone A/C, games room A/C, 105 gallon water heater, no carpets, except for staircase)

CUSTOMER SERVICE (we take a personal interest in making sure our guests have magical vacations and are only a phone call away when needed. Our local management team provide additional support when required)

VALUE by providing all the above for a reasonable price we enjoy a lot of business from returning guests guests and guest referrals.

PERFECTION AT ITS BEST

  • 5 of 5

All I can say is WOW. This was the best Disney vacation we ever had. We had stayed on property when our kids were small but I got the idea from my daughter and son-in-law who rent houses rather than staying in a hotel. I contacted Bob well over a year to a year and a half ago. What an awesome man! I did not know the dates as my daughter did not have her own school schedule so I thought I knew, booked, changed my mind about the dates and canceled and rebooked. Bob was awesome and so understanding. Let me say I hate staying in hotels. I don't like the smell, I don't like the atmosphere and I don't like the maid service that comes in and cleans. It literally makes me sick to my stomach when I go into a shower in a hotel. Long story short, we arrived to this amazing home, AMAZING. All in all we had 7 of us staying in the home. Yes we could have chosen something smaller but what caught my eye is the fact that they updated, renovated and were extremely nice and the fact they had 5 stars. Can I tell you what also made me feel wonderful, the towels in the house, YES the towels. I HATE the white towels in the hotel. I don't even want to share with my experience. They had "real" towels, blue ones and new beach towels. THAT was what relaxed me. It was truly a home away from home. I never slept so good as I did there, first and foremost because I was comfortable. The home was immaculate. I cannot say enough about this home. The owners are terrific. Oh and let me tell you about the grill.....SPOTLESS also. Our own grill at home isn't as clean as that! This was an amazing vacation, one that will forever be in my heart. We were all together as a family sharing memories and making new ones. Thank you Bob and Diane for being so amazing and for sharing your beautiful house with us. We will be returning!

Awesome Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for two weeks at this property and loved every minute of it. The pool set up was great, warm and there was plenty of seating for everyone. The home was well equipped with everything we needed to feed a large number of family members. It was close to all the activities and sights which made the trip that much more enjoyable.

The kids loved the game room and spent as much time in there as they did in the pool !

Thank you for allowing us to use your home-couldn't have been any better ! Jim and Eileen

Love the place!!!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our vacation at Herron's Flight. I want to summerize why in the following: 1, The place is very clean, spotless! 2, The dish soap and laundry detergent and shower soap are provided, as well as the toilet paper and paper towels. We ran the dish washer every day. 3. Each room has its own TV. We are family of five, two adults and three kids with age 10,7, and 4. Our kids enjoyed air hockey and basketball game in the garage. The owner set up the games very nicely in the garage. 4. Our daughter loved the decorations inside the house! 5. From the place to Disney World takes about 20 minutes drive. Grocery store is nearby, very convenient. 6. Owner is very easy to work with. We appreciate it very much!

There is only one thing I want to point out is that we would enjoy more if we could control the thermostat ourselves instead of calling owner and adjusted the temperature. Given the owner is so generous about providing the consumable items, there must be a reason that the owner want to make it so the thermostat is not controllable by the tenants. Overall, we love that place! We would recommend to our friends or if we go back to visit FL, that is the place we would stay again.

Owner's Response: Thanks for a super review Ken. Having stayed at many rental properties over the years we know how frustrating it can be to have to buy a lot of supplies when you don't need that much of any one item for a short term stay. Consequently, we decided to provide a reasonable supply of these items as a courtesy to our guests. The reason we control the thermostats is to prevent guests who may not be used to dealing with A/C systems and/or the extreme heat of Floridian summers from damaging the system and rendering it inoperable. Guests setting the thermostat for 65F and then heading off to the parks for the day in the middle of July are likely to find the system is not working and the indoor temperature in the high 80's when they return home. Getting someone to make a service call on short notice is very difficult at any time and almost impossible during hot spells. Our standard settings are fine for most guests but, within reason, we are always happy to make adjustments to make sure our guests are comfortable during their stay.

Awesome Family House!!

  • 5 of 5

Great house with plenty of space! I stayed here in March 2017' with my husband our three children and our parents. The kids loved the pool and the game room kept the kids busy. The house is extremely well kept. Very close to Disney Parks! Tons of places to eat near by and everything needed for meal prep available in the kitchen as well. The owners are extremely friendly and easy to work with. I can't wait to come back and stay here for our next family trip!
