About Jane Keeling

Having had many family holidays in the USA we love it there and decided to buy in on a gated community where we could holiday, take our children and grandchildren and rent out the property. We have done this since 2009 and still love to visit once or twice a year.

Jane Keeling purchased this villa in 2008

Why Jane Keeling chose Kissimmee

We fell in love with Paradise Palms the first time we drove into the complex, we had looked at several properties but knew this was the one as soon as we saw it; it's beautifully kept, the staff are welcoming and our house is wonderful.

What makes this villa unique

Our house is close to all the Parks but just far enough away to be peaceful and quiet especially when you have spent a tiring day out, it's great to come back to relax by the pool or just in the house.

Paradise Palms is a peaceful location especially good to get back to after a hectic day at Disney there are so many activities to occupy both toddlers and teenagers as well as the adults. Besides the large communal pool there is a children's paddling pool, a hot-tub and spa/whirlpool; the bar beside the pool also has a small menu. A small shop has recently opened on site, selling candy, crackers, salt, pepper etc. Our house has the best of both worlds, near to the Parks but it is easy to stay at the complex all day and find plenty to do in the peaceful surroundings.

Wonderful home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 had a very nice stay at The Keeling's townhome. The first level bedroom was perfect for my parents. Our 2 kids (12 & 7) had a blast using the personal pool as well as the resort pool. Plenty of space for everyone. We went to Daytona 500, Universal Studios (x3), Clearwater Beach, and experienced Medieval Times dinner show and Congo River Golf where the kids got to hold a small alligator! Overall a great vacation. Jane was so accommodating and answered questions quickly. Everything was as described and worked well. We hope to come back soon. Miss it already.

Great space for families

  • 5 of 5

This our second time staying at Jane and David's lovely condo. We come down in January with our daughter, her husband, and their 4 children. The size and layout of this unit is so ideal. Being on 2 floors really makes us feel we can spread out and have room. The resort has a very nice pool for all the guests, but what a great bonus that each condo has their own screened in private pool. The grandchildren loved this and it was so nice for our daughter to have the older ones enjoying the private pool while the baby was napping. My husband and I travel a lot and I must add that one thing I most appreciate is how easy it is to get in touch with Jane. She is so prompt in replying to my emails and answering questions. From our experience, many owners are not as quick to respond as Jane is. As travelers, we so appreciate this. She is so kind and helpful. Also, her property managers are easy to reach if there is a concern during your stay. Other desirable things are how well the resort grounds are kept and the great location of this resort. Easy to get to the main road where all the stores and restaurants are. An easy drive to Disney also. We hope to return to this condo in the future.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for such a great review; it's lovely when guests come back for the second time, sometimes third or fourth. Our little pool is so popular with the younger children even in the winter. I think it's very important to communicate quickly if possible, it can be a worry to book a house with someone you don't know so there are often lots of questions. I do hope we hear from you again. Thank you very much Jane

Thank you so much for sharing your home Jane and David. The condo is beautiful and very comfortable with nothing needed except your suitcase! This is the 2nd stay at this beautiful Villa. The communication with Jane prior to our arrival was above and beyond. The management company "Orlando 4 Ever" was very attentive and accommodating. The staff at the clubhouse was very friendly and helpful too. I would highly recommend this property!! Thanks again Jane, and we will be back for another visit!

Home from home, great location for access to theme parks and excellent place to relax on days off!

  • 5 of 5

From beginning to end the process of booking and staying at Paradise Palms was a dream. Jane was always on hand to provide information and even spoke to me the day after Christmas in 2015 to talk to me about the house and area. Paradise Palms and the house are lovely, well-kept, clean and in the perfect location to get to the theme parks and to supermarkets, restaurants etc. The house itself is spacious, comfortable and clean. We had 6 staying most of the time and it was perfect for that amount of people. The kitchen was very well equipped and we used the plastic containers left in the cupboards to store our packed lunches each day (which saved us a heck of a lot of money as the food at the parks is pricey). We used the onsite facilities i.e the games room and the site pool on several occasions. It was always clean and the pool was warm. Its a large and comfortable pool area, so even when busy, there was always somewhere to sit. It was a perfect 2 week stay and we would all highly recommend it to our friends and family. You do need a car if you are based in Paradise Palms, but once you get to grips with the road network its actually quite easy to find your way around.

Located within 10-15 minutes easy drive of main Disney attractions and 25 minutes to Universal Studios. Other attractions in the area include many superb golf courses and state parks, wide range of good restaurants and fast food outlets. Organised excursions to see alligator and wildlife within thirty minutes. One and a half hours drive to Cape Canaveral and Florida West Coast beaches. Everglades about three hours drive.

Excellent shopping facilities for day to day requirements minutes away. Shopping Malls including Macys and discount centres along with excellent restaurants in Orlando, about thirty minutes drive.

There are many supermarkets within a few minutes drive, Target, Publix and Wallmart; the US192 is just up the road and has many restuarants, gift shops, crazy golf, banks etc.

The new Legoland opens October 2011, we think it'll take about 25 minutes from the house in the opposite direction to the Disney parks.

If interested in golf is a really helpful site.
