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.

We installed a LED lamp as the pool light and it has a number of colour options. We love to set it to change colour every few seconds. It is a wonderful show at night and it is a pleasure to go for a swim when the light is on. A very popular feature according to our guests.

Herons Flight: Amazing 5 Star 6/4 Disney Pool Home. Completely modernized.
average rating of 5.0 based on 25 reviews


  • 5 of 5

This property was everything you see in the photos and more. The owners are great to deal with and very accommodating of their guests' needs. We were traveling as a group of 10 (7 adults, 1 of which is wheelchair bound and 3 children). They had a ramp in place for the front for but to be honest, the house was more than handicap accessible without it. Wide halls and entry ways to accommodate a wheelchair. The driveway easily fits 2 minivans, one of which was a handicap van (so a little larger than your average sized minivan). The house is located with in maybe a 10 minute drive to the parks, not sure of the exact time but it was a relatively short drive!

The game room was utilized well by the kids (and even us adults at times). The strollers they had were great for the parks. We didn't even bring one for our preschooler which worked out great on the night we did a late night at the park. The kitchen is very well stocked! Literally has everything you could possibly need and more. Bedrooms are great sizes and the pool was AMAZING! I have already recommended this property to several people and will definitely be staying here again!

Owner's Response: Hi Lori. Thanks for a great review. We would love to have you stay with us again and will be more than happy to accommodate your relatives and friends when they want to visit the parks. Remember, in addition to Herons Flight we also have Dianes Disney Villa. A wonderful 4/3 home that is great for a smaller group.

Excellent stay!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 8 stayed 10 days in Heron Flight and had a wonderful time!.

The house was everything we hoped it would be. All the beds were comfortable.

The house has been recently renovated and is lovely.

My grandchildren enjoyed the heated pool.

The house is located about 15 min from Disney World. We never had any problems with traffic going to the park.

A shopping center with a Publix is near-by and there are many restaurants too.

It was nice to get away from the hussle and bustle & crowds at the end of the day. A very peaceful place to stay.

Absolutely perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

This was a special holiday for us. A big family occasion, our wedding.

Diane and Bob couldn't do enough for us from my first enquiry. They even called round to meet us as they were in the area. Which was lovely to put faces to the endless emails i had tormented them with for months haha.

The house was absolutely perfect. Our holiday was 4 adults and 4 children but at one point at the time of our wedding we had 13 people and there was more than enough space for everyone.

The location was brilliant, the master bedroom suite was fantastic and the furnishings top quality. The kitchen was equipped with everything you could need and more. And the view across the lake in the mornings and evenings was blissful.

I was so pleased I chose this villa and would mostly definitely book again for future trips. In fact I can't wait for the next one as I didn't want to leave.

Perfect house -- our family loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Heron's Flight was absolutely perfect for our family. We had a person in a wheelchair and with a few minor accommodations, we all (11 of us) had the best time. The pool security gate was an added bonus with our two young grandsons and our two older granddaughters loved their room and especially the game room. I highly recommend anyone looking to rent a house in Kissimmee to contact Diane and Bob. They were terrific to deal with and wanted us to have the best possible time at their home -- which we did! Thanks to both of them!

Perfect for our needs!

  • 5 of 5

For our group of ten, 5 adults and 5 kids- ages from 18 down to 8- this house met all our needs. Recently updated, this house was clean and well kept. The bedrooms were spacious and comfortable for this group. The kitchen worked for us too and was very functional. The pool was awesome and utilized by everyone in the house. Nice to be 20 mins from Universal and have this relaxing pool to come back to, cool down and unwind. Close to restaurants, and essential shopping too. No regrets. Will stay here again in a heartbeat.
