About Tom Andre Holen

We are 2 couples from Norway who bought this villa in 2013. Our dream finally came true when we purchased this house in Veranda Palms. Our families of 4 + 4 went to Florida first time in 2008, and we just fell in love with the place.

Tom Andre Holen purchased this villa in 2013

Why Tom Andre Holen chose Disney / Orlando

The reason we bought in Kissimmee, is that we just love the area, the people and the things to do in Orlando. Our kids are looking forward to their Orlando vacation every year because of the fantastic theme parks and the private pool.

We want to make our home the best it can be for our guests, and have also chosen the best management for the property to ensure high quality and satisfaction.

What makes this villa unique

When we looked at properties in Orlando, our realtor took us around looking at different locations. Veranda Palms was the best we found, after looking at several locations that day.

This is in our opinion the best lot in the whole area, with a fantastic lake view from the pool deck, with the wildlife and fantastic nature. It`s a calm atmosphere and very little noise, but at the same time so close to everything.

To improve even more, we decided to get an extended pool deck for more space for the kids and adults to enjoy the pool-area, this is quite unique at Veranda Palms.

We also chose to get a professional interior designer to do the inside of the house, so it came out perfect.

Orlando visit in October 2015

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic holiday in this luxurious Orlando Villa. It was our second stay in this wonderful house. Everything was nice and clean and exactly as advertised. We will definitely stay here again if we return to Orlando.

Excellent house and location!

  • 4 of 5

We have been going to the surrounding Orlando area for many, many years and so far, this is the best house we've come across. I don't give 5 stars as that would mean that everything is perfect beyond reproach. If i could give 4.5 i would.

I believe in honest reviews with no sugar coating so let's start with the cons:

The house was not as clean as we were expecting. Under the couch and under the kitchen/dining table was very dirty. We had to re-clean the floors. There were a lot of very tiny bugs in the knife block as well as on the counter and on the walls by the front entrance alarm pad. I have only seen these bugs one other time and that was when we were traveling in the Dominican Republic and they were in the house that we had rented. I can only account for these critters being let in from the previous renters keeping the doors open and having sweet fruit and food on the counters without cleaning it up promptly. Not the fault of the owners of the house, but more from the previous tenants and they need to realize that we are in a sub tropical environment and you have to ensure you are prudent in keeping the bugs out or you will have a mess on your hands.

The beds mattresses were good, the box springs, not so good. If you moved an inch, they would squeak and creak. It annoyed my wife so much that she slept in the spare room. The owners are aware of this issue and they indicated that it would be resolved very shortly.

The good:

Excellent house, great size, great location, great pool, fantastic pond view. Everything you need is within easy driving distance such as Super Target, Walmart, restaurants, all highways, and all attractions. The extras they have in the house are well thought out such as extra car seats, strollers, high chairs, etc. We have two kids aged 6 and 8 and we did not take a stroller with us on the flight and were going to rent at the park. The strollers alone saved us a minimum of $25US each time at the park as my 8 year old can now walk the parks without complaining she's tired! The closets were full of extra linens, bath and beach towels. Fantastic job! The owners are wonderful to work with and they are extremely prompt in replying to my emails before, during and after our experience. Definitely top notch!!

Conclusively, everything can't be perfect, I get that. That being said, we would come back again in a heartbeat. I can tell the owners care immensely about their guests and their experience.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your stay and your review. We are sorry about the issues you pointed out in your review. We have now notified the cleaners and the management about the bad cleaning under the couch and table, and they have assured us that this will be taken care of from now on. As for the bug issue, the house has regular pest control and the only way these bugs can get in is from guests not following the instructions regarding closing of doors, as you also pointed out in your review. The box springs will be replaced asap, as we were aware of the issue. Once again, thank you for choosing our house for your vacation, we welcome you back anytime!

Perfect Location and Perfect Villa

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect. It is in a nice quiet location, overlooking a lake and is within 15-20 minutes of all the main Disney attractions. There are restaurants and supermarkets very close by and you want for nothing. Having your own pool and games room means you don't even feel you need to go out some evenings.

I couldn't get the kids out of the pool.

Everything was clean and tidy and the house has everything you need for a holiday.

A fantastic holiday and I would recommend to anyone.

Perfect Setup!

  • 5 of 5

This house absolutely met my expectations and was the perfect setup for our family. We brought my in laws along, and it was so nice for everyone to have their own room and space. The house was very clean and had plenty of dishes, kitchen supplies and towels for everyone. We enjoyed having the comforts of home available to us during our trip to Disney. The kids loved having a swimming pool all to themselves! I would absolutely recommend this property to others.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Our family absolutely loved everything about this house! My kids have asked every day since we have come back from our holiday if we could go back to the 'orange house'. Location is great, close to a super Target and tons of restaurants and only about 15 minutes to Disney World and Sea World. We will definitely be back again, hands down our favorite vacation and the house was just the icing on the cake!

Veranda Palms is the newest gated vacation home community, located in Kissimmee in the Orlando/Disney area just four miles (ten minutes) from Walt Disney World, less than 3 miles from Celebration, and close to plenty of great places to eat and shop.

You can walk out the front gate of Veranda Palms and in a few minutes be playing miniature golf, riding go karts, jet skiing, eating at one of several local restaurants, or watching a dinner show.

Even though you are in the heart of everything when you are standing on the property you would think it is many miles out in the country. It is completely tranquil and peaceful. The look and feel of Veranda Palms, while still being so close to everything, makes this community an absolute gem. Veranda Palms serenity is provided by the conservation areas surrounding the community.

Shingle Creek Preserve is an amazing 1000 acre project. It has playgrounds, marked nature trails with boardwalks, history trails and historical restorations to transport you to Florida of the 1800s. There are also canoes and kayaking on beautiful streams and lakes that look as they did hundreds of years ago.

Veranda Palms is in a great location, right in the heart of everything and an easy ten minutes to Walt Disney World. The community is in West Kissimmee, in a quiet country setting but only a couple of minutes walk from US 192. The quickest route into Disney from Veranda Palms is to travel west on US 192, take a right onto US 535 (Apopka Vineland Road), then left onto US 536 (World Center Drive).

There is a great range of places to eat to suit all tastes and budgets within a few minutes walking distance, including Smokey Bones, Bob Evans, Applebees, Dennys, McDonalds, Cattleman's Steakhouse, Olive Garden, TGI Fridays, Panda Express, and many more.

In the same area you will find shopping options (Publix, Super Target), while for more serious shopping there are the big box stores and a 16 screen movie theater at The Loop just five minutes away. For the occasional break from the theme parks there is miniature golf, go karts, jet skiing, helicopter tours, Capone's dinner show, Medieval Times and more, all close by.
