About the property

Townhome, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

Location, location, location!!! Soooo convenient to everything you want and need to do during your Disney/Orlando vacation. You will feel at ease at this top rated Encantada gated resort. And best of all this 5 star rated townhouse is one of the best positioned in the resort being just steps from the clubhouse, pools, & playground, but far enough not to hear the noise. It is on the lake with the front facing a wooded conservatory making for more pleasant & peaceful experience. This townhome is beautifully decorated and very well appointed--but I'll let the pictures speak for themselves. Guest have full use of the clubhouse and facilities which include:

Two heated swimming pools (one being a zero-entry pool designed for younger children)

Two hot spa pools

Arcade games & pool table

Exercise equipment

Internet cafe

Catch & release fishing (without permit!)


Shuttle service to major theme parks (for a fee)

Lots of area info, maps, guides, etc. available in clubhouse

And did I mention LOCATION:

3 miles to the west entrance of Disney via Hwy 429 ($1 toll)

5 miles to Animal Kingdom

4 miles to World Drive (Disney's main gateway)

4 1/2 miles to ESPN's Wide World of Sports

4 1/2 miles to Interstate 4 (leads to Seaworld, Universal Studios)

1 mile to Hwy 429 (Western Beltway)

1/2 mile to McDonalds, restaurants, 7-Eleven (walk if you want)

1 1/2 miles to Super Target and Publix Grocery

1 1/2 - 2 miles to new restaurants (Miller's Ale House, Applebees Olive Garden, Longhorn Steakhouse, Bahama Breeze, Cracker Barrel, and many more)

Within 2 miles of golf courses (Orange Lake, The Reserve, The Legends)

25 miles to Orlando International Airport

50 miles to beaches

Because Encantada Resort is a half mile off the hustle and bustle of Hwy 192, it has a feel of solitude once you enter the gates. When you walk through the door of 'Walkin on Sunshine' townhome, you can unwind in a clean, comfortable, well equipped home managed by a top notch management company.

About Janet Varnado


We are a Louisiana couple and enjoy coming to sunny Florida. We lived 3 years in Merritt Island, FL when my husband was in the airforce in the mid 70's and worked at what was then Cape Kennedy. My how things have changed! But we always loved Florida, and it feels like a second home. We could never leave our Louisiana roots. So, that is why we are so excited to have this townhouse in Florida. We hope to visit often with family and friends and hope all the guest that stay enjoy it as much as we do.

Janet Varnado purchased this townhome in 2011

Why Janet Varnado chose Kissimmee

Location, location, location

We love being close to the (less congested) western entrance to Disney. It's so easy and much less traveled. Shopping and new restaurants are all nearby.

Encantada's location has that secluded but safe feeling that you need after a day of overload.

What makes this townhome unique

I love sitting on the screened in patio in the mornings with my coffee looking over the lake and fountain as the sun comes up. Also, taking a walk around the lake on the paved sidewalk is nice. My husband enjoys feeding cheerios to the fish of the fishing pier.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We found the stay in walkin' on sunshine GREAT. The prior contact with Janet upon reservation was very pleasant and she was very helpful in answering questions about the rental. Upon arrival, the check in was very smooth and took only 5 minutes. We were very excited to see the house when we arrived and we were very happy to see that everything exceeded our expectations. The interior is very beautiful and nicely decorated. The kitchen is fully equipped and bathrooms spotless. The kids loved the bunk bed in "their room". We very much enjoyed both the small pool at the house as well as the larger pools in the club house, which is located conveniently close by the house. We felt very welcome here and would definetly like to return another time.

We are a family with 2 young boys of 5 and 6 years of age. Our youngest son even celebrated his 5th year birthday in the house, so this stay has definitely created long lasting memories for us all. We give or utmost recommendation for staying in the house of Janet ...

An enjoyable stay and close to the attractions.

  • 4 of 5

The property is very nicely furnished and decorated, the beds are comfortable and the location puts it close to the Orlando attractions. We enjoyed our stay and the owner was very pleasant to work with. We would stay there again. Since it is close to Disney’s west gate area the traffic is heavy. Stores for your necessities are close by.

Great first condo rental experience!

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time renting a vacation condo and what a pleasant surprise. Janet the owner was very helpful and made sure I had everything I needed upon arriving. We loved this place. It was super clean and was stocked with everything we needed. The price was perfect and the location of this unit to all amenities available is very convenient. The clubhouse was a short minute walk out the back door. Check in and check out was easy and smooth. My son was participating in the RussMatt Baseball tournament and the location was ideal to both playing venues. The splash pool was not heated so we weren't able to use it, however the clubhouse pools were amazing. Thanks Janet for everything. This unit is wonderful!
