A WARM & INVITING WELCOME awaits you at my idyllic LAKESIDE family home ... THE PRESIDENTIAL LODGE.

As the name suggests, I've spared no expense in creating a luxurious yet comfortable home where you and your family can enjoy a memorable vacation at DISNEY WORLD ORLANDO.

My home is located just off US192, approx 9 miles south-east of WALT DISNEY WORLD, offering one of the fastest, easiest routes to Disney and all of central Florida's major attractions!

This IMMACULATELY presented TWO-STOREY home is PROFESSIONALLY MAINTAINED and offers my guests almost 3500 square feet of accommodation with 3 SEPARATE LIVING ROOMS, including a fabulous upstairs LOFT/DEN with sectional recliner sofa, cable TV/DVD/VIDEO PLAYER & PLAYSTATION 2.

The SUMPTUOUS FIRST FLOOR MASTER SUITE has an amazing CALIFORNIA KING PILLOW-TOP BED and a LAVISHLY UPGRADED EN-SUITE bathroom with TRAVERTINE TILE, step-in SHOWER (big enough for two!!), TWIN VANITIES, brushed pewter fittings ..... WOW!

UPSTAIRS you'll find a SECOND KING SIZE BEDROOM and QUEEN SIZE BEDROOM - both exquisitely decorated!

The PATRIOTIC AMERICANA themed bedroom offers TWO TWIN BEDS and a WALK-IN CLOSET and our younger guests are sure to love spending their vacation with MICKEY, MINNIE and some of their friends in our fabulous DISNEY THEMED bedroom, also with TWIN BEDS.

All bedrooms have plenty of storage with LARGE CLOSETS, nightstands and dressers. The MASTER SUITE has large WALK-IN closet and a WALL SAFE to stow your personal belongings.

There are THREE FULL BATHROOMS PLUS A GUEST BATHROOM/HALF-BATH.

CEILING fans, cable TV & DVD players feature in all of our BEDROOMS!

The separate STUDY includes a DELL COMPUTER and FREE HIGH SPEED BROADBAND INTERNET ACCESS allows you to stay in touch with friends or family back home or you can bring your own laptop and log onto the net with WIRELESS from anywhere in the house!

This stunning home is FULLY AIR CONDITIONED/HEATED for your comfort with the added bonus of CEILING FANS in all bedrooms, the upstairs LOFT/DEN and FAMILY ROOM.

Chill out in our 1950s THEMED GAMES ROOM which is also air-conditioned (many are not!!) and features a professional, 8ft POOL TABLE with slate bed, 7ft AIR HOCKEY TABLE.

A large capacity WASHER AND DRYER are provided along with fresh, clean bed linens and lots of fluffy, cotton towels of all sizes - including over-sized BATH SHEETS and poolside towels!

The well appointed, FULLY EQUIPPED FAMILY KITCHEN has an American Refrigerator/Freezer, Ice-Maker, Dishwasher, Electric stove/cooker, built-in Microwave, Electric Kettle, Coffee Maker & Toaster plus quality utensils, lots of coffee mugs, glasses, Flatware & Dinnerware, stainless steel appliances & pans.

FREE BABY EQUIPMENT includes a pack & play crib, stroller, highchair, car seat, two bed guards/bed rails. For added peace of mind, there's also a CHILD SAFETY POOL FENCE & POOL ALARM.

An ELECTRIC POOL HEATER gives you the option of having the pool and spa/jacuzzi heated. DECK LIGHTING and MULTI-COLORED, FIBER OPTIC UNDERWATER POOL LIGHTING is included to add to your enjoyment of the outdoor facilities of our home.

The LARGE, EXTENDED POOL DECK has a south-west aspect giving pretty much all-day FLORIDA SUNSHINE, and beautiful sunsets over the LAKE.

HIGH-QUALITY PATIO FURNISHINGS INCLUDING 4 SUN LOUNGERS, TWO SIDE TABLES, FULL-SIZE PATIO TABLE, UMBRELLA, 4 CHAIRS - ALL WITH COMFORTABLE, PADDED SEATS FOR YOUR COMFORT while working on your tan!

A CHARCOAL BBQ GRILL is provided with our compliments. A GAS GRILL may be rented separately through our management company.

My family love spending our vacations in the DISNEY AREA and this truly is our second home ... not simply a rental property.

Vacation homes vary considerably in terms of age, location and the overall standard of furnishings and amenities provided.

The aim of this home is for the guests to enjoy it as much my family do and they love every minute of the time it took for it to be turned from a basic brand new house into a beautiful, friendly and warm home ... from considering paint options to picking out big, comfy sofas and sumptuous, pillow-top mattresses!

The attention to the smallest details combining quality furnishings and décor choices has helped create a warm, inviting home-from-home with a touch of luxury, which our guests agree really does set our home apart, and those extra, little personal touches throughout will hopefully make your stay all the more memorable and enjoyable.

The standards in QUALITY and CLEANLINESS are high and consider myself extremely lucky to have THE BEST and most amazing MANAGEMENT COMPANY to take wonderful care of our home ... and our guests!

WHEN YOU BOOK YOUR STAY AT THE PRESIDENTIAL LODGE, you can rest assured that you do so with total peace of mind, knowing that our EXPERIENCED MANAGEMENT COMPANY are available for you to contact anytime during your stay should the need arise.

About Robert gordon

Long time owner and visitor to Florida - I have welcomed thousands of guests to my home in Orlando over the years now and am honored to count many of them who have become repeat guests as friends! I look forward to welcoming you soon!

Robert gordon purchased this villa in 2004

Why Robert gordon chose Kissimmee

After 25 years of spending our family vacations in Florida we know our way around pretty well and we chose our home for it's great location amongst beautiful surroundings and wide open spaces, the generous sized lot and because it offers the ideal base from which to visit all of Orlando's top attractions yet provides the perfect environment in which to relax and enjoy your vacation with family or friends. We love the fact that there is a mix of both residential properties and vacation homes which means you can take the kids trick or treating at halloween or take a stroll around our beautiful community during the Holidays and enjoy all the lights and decorations which are absolutely stunning!

What makes this villa unique

Ease of access to the 'main stream' tourist facilities (eg: DIsney/Universal/Florida Mall etc.) AND the less well known, smaller nature based parks - such as 'Horse World', Air-boat rides in the swamp lands, Helicopter rides, 'Old Town', etc.

Guestbook comments from the manager

One of the best places I've stayed in the last years. A complete home, with a great lake view, game room, a well design kitchen and dining area, and of course, perfect rooms. Everyone in my falily enjoyed the time spent there. Since my first inquire, the manager/owner were very helpfull and had very quick answers. And the price were very reasonable also. And for the supplys, there is a Super Walmart minutes away by car. I really recommend this property.

Presidential Lodge

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Presidential Lodge for the 4 days that we did the Disney parks with our children. The neighborhood was nice and quiet, which we loved because with hotel rooms you hear everything!! The privacy was a plus, the kids enjoyed the pool table and the air hockey table. One con about the pool table is that it needs new felt and the cues need tips and the table needs cue chalk (Pool players). The beds were quite comfortable for a great nights sleep after spending all of our energy at the parks. The added plus was the pool and jacuzzi. The kids and adults enjoyed this extra amenity. The house could use a fresh coat of paint inside on some of the white walls, but overall we had a really nice stay at the Presidential Lodge!!

This is a great house with very spacious rooms. Very close to parks as well as very close to stores.

  • 4 of 5

We had a good time there. The house is very spacious and very well maintained and all of us had a very good time. We were 3 families (6 adults + 6 kids) and it was very comfortable. The house is very close to stores and restaurants as well as the parks and the airport. Kids enjoyed the place with its spacious rooms as well as the swimming pool and the game room. All the rooms including the rest rooms were very clean.

This will definitely be one of the places that we will consider for future visits.

family vacation

  • 5 of 5

There were 10 of us that stayed in this house, including 2 children. We never felt crowded. We were about 15 to 20 minutes from the parks. We had 4 cars and parking was available in driveway and in front of house. Beds were very comfortable. The pool was nice. Close to grocery stores and lots of restaurants. Bob was very easy to deal with. Would definitely come back again. Thanks Bob!

Will Stay Again / No question

  • 5 of 5

All the amenities needed, the home is very nice. Plenty space for a large group of adults. The game room was a great get away from all the women talk (a man cave). The pool area is where we had the most fun. I love this place, it was perfect for my wife 46th birthday. We are making plans now for our next visit.

thanks so much

Bed bugs

  • 1 of 5

This house is infested with bed bugs, I got an assurance from the owner and we lived there for ten days (12 people) with bed bugs because apparently there wasn't another house to be found for us!!! The owner sent three air mattresses for 12 people, imagine, I've gotten half a refund from the owners but apparently this isn't his fault and refuses to give us a full refund!! We had to make countless calls to ENGLAND to speak to te owner, we brought our own sprays, had to wash every article of clothing, every shoe, every sandal and bag everything to go home and do it all again upon arrivel and take off all out clothes before going in the house, now if this is what your looking for when booking a vacation home then book away!!! If your like the rest of the population and expect a clean house free of bed bugs and cockroaches, oh yes we had some of those too, faulty air conditioner and slow internet then DON'T book this house!!! Disgruntled renter!!!!!

Owner's Response: I am sorry about this event but it was beyond my control as such insects are brought into the house by guests! The house has a monthly treatment minimizing insects crawling in from outside but these insects occur naturally outside and they stick to guest clothing/luggage bringing them into the house. The only action possible is to react after a report which I did. I would have re-homed the guests at my expense, however no similar accommodation was available as this was the Holidays. But I spent many days over the period searching on the guest’s behalf. The guests were free to do the same but decided to stay so the situation was not as bad as made out. I arranged for immediate treatment by a professional. Live insects were found in 2 upstairs bedrooms - it was the guest’s decision not to use the other 2 bedrooms. They did use the downstairs Master Suit. The guests were aware they would need to use an air bed from the outset due to party size so I purchased another 3 airbeds and with a pull out bed sofa bed there was sufficient sleeping facilities having multiple living spaces available. The guests were free to leave immediately with a full refund and make their own arrangements. However they were obviously not that concerned as they decided to take advantage of the house (games room, pool, kitchen, living rooms/entertainment facilities). So generated utility costs for their stay. Given this fact I refunded half their rental payment, I discussed this with the guests at the time and they AGREED. It would have been cheaper for me to refund in full and have them leave but I wanted to try and help knowing how difficult it would be during the Holiday period to find alternative accommodation. The UK phone calls were responses to my calls to them which were unanswered. I immediately told them I would call them back but they declined so have no reason to mention this. The single cockroach event was caused by the guests leaving out a pizza on the counter overnight. In Florida the result was to be expected. The WiFi issue was caused by a Provider outage which affected all homes locally and A/C issue was resolved immediately once reported. I could not avoid the problems experienced and responded swiftly at great cost far outweighing the rental income. There was nothing more than could have been done. As a result though I had the house sealed and fumigated ($3200) as this provides a guarantee that ALL inspects brought into the house by guests are eradicated.

Bed Bugs Beware

  • 1 of 5

Home was nice enough and in a decent neighborhood. Air-conditioner did not work for the first 2.5 days. Owner had it repaired in a timely fashion.

Noticed a bed bug the last morning of our trip. Our children complained of bites during our stay (they slept upstairs). Having no prior experience, we did not look or assume bed bugs could be the issue. We found a bed bug as we were departing on our last day. It ruined our entire trip! We had to treat all of our belongings and be very careful not to track them into our personal house when we returned home.

Owner's Response: I am of course very sorry for these guests and they have been very unlucky. I have a pest control service treat the house every month which stops bugs getting in of their own accord however Florida is a sub-tropical environment and such bugs do exist in the outside environment - unfortunately these particular bugs can stick to peoples shoes/clothing/luggage and be brought into the house as a result by guests - which is of course impossible to control. I was only informed at the end of the guests stay of the problem and therefore had no time to react before they left. As soon as possible though a specialist inspection was performed, I was advised that they could treat chemically for $600 but a better treatment was a heat machine but cost more at $800 - I opted for the more expensive treatment. So all is OK now. I am sorry that these guests had a bad experience but as you can see from the normal reviews I receive the house is clean and well presented so this was a one-off event and the guest was unlucky.
