About The Owner

My husband and my two dogs, Pacino and Pesci are my favorite people to travel with. We try and take them with us to our home in Kissimmee as much as possible to get away from the cold weather in Boston. Steve works for the airlines so we get to travel for free which is a HUGE perk! Some homeowners can only visit 1-2 times a year...we go down at least 2-3 times a month to check on things, update the house and tinker around...

The Owner purchased this house in 2005

Why The Owner chose Kissimmee

We bought our home in the Indian Ridge section of Kissimmee in 2005 because we needed a place to go to when the winters here in Boston got to snowy and frigid. We were coming down to Fla quite frequently and renting hotels and paying a fortune. Buying this home was the best thing we ever did. It's the closest community to Disney and the area is quiet and well maintained.

What makes this house unique

We love relaxing by the pool with a drink and taking a swim at night. You can't do that after 10pm at most hotels. We are pet friendly (with certain restrictions and rules) and the dogs enjoy laying out in the sun and playing in the large open area. The home is located in a quiet area...but yet you drive two miles up Old Lake Wilson Rd and you have all your restaurants, shops, activities, etc...Great great location!

Disney vacation

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. The location was perfect for a Disney vacation. Loved the pool. The neighborhood was quiet and the home was clean and comfortable with plenty of space for my family of 6, 2 in-laws and their dog. Also, the owner responded promptly with any of my questions and concerns.

Beautiful home, great location

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home, easy drive to all the parks, and the owners were amazing! When my son arrived the first night a thunderstorm had fried the cable modem, so they were without Internet. Doreen and her husband were very responsive and helpful in fixing the problem, enlisting a Florida neighbor to assist. Internet access was restored the next morning.

It's a great house and a great location, but the best thing about staying there is the owners. Wonderful people, super helpful. Thanks, Doreen -- when we come back to Florida, we know where to stay!

Owner's Response: Thanks David, we felt so bad that your son didnt have internet and no way to contact you. We were happy that our neighbor could help out, and that we could get an appointment with the cable company first thing the next morning. Glad it all worked out. Doreen and Steve

Close to Disney!

  • 5 of 5

We have visited Orlando many times and always choose to stay in a villa over a hotel.

We normally take our holidays at Easter/October but had to book August this year due to UK school holidays. As July/August is obviously one of the busiest periods, we did struggle somewhat to find a reasonably priced villa.

Doreen's villa was perfect for our needs. Our daughter had the choice of the either the Red Sox room or Tinkerbell - you can guess which one won!

We arrived late, in the dark, and it was lovely to finally get into the villa and see that some lamps had been left on for us - it felt very homely.

The villa was spacious & clean, although I am surprised that owners choose cream carpets in the living areas!

The beds were all very comfortable, although the single beds in the Tinkerbell room were quite 'squeaky'

The garage was great fun for playing games, although it was so hot (being August), that you could only really stand it for 10 minutes or so before getting back into the coolness of the house!

The pool was lovely, with comfortable seating/loungers. The only picky thing I noticed, being an anti-smoker, was a dirty ashtray left outside. There were plenty of floats left for us - they were great fun!

It was so nice being able to get in the pool after a long day shopping/parks. We even went in a couple of evenings, making sure to keep the noise down as this is a residential area.

There were lots of books/DVD's but, we simply didn't have time to use them.

There were lots of pretty ornaments around the villa, I'm not sure I would leave them personally if it was my villa - we were careful not to touch any of them!

The split living areas are a good idea, the only thing was that the carpeted lounge was quite dark - The blinds were broken and difficult to open/close, they could really do with being replaced.

The wifi was excellent & easy to connect to.

The kitchen was well appointed - the only thing missing for us Brits is an electric kettle! We didn't do any cooking but everything looked well set up.

The location was the closest we have ever stayed to Disney - literally a few minutes until you were on Disney property

Arranging payment took some organising - mainly because of making an international payment. I had to cover both mine and Doreen's bank/paypal fees which cost an extra $45

Deposit was returned promptly.

Would highly recommend this villa & would choose to stay here again

Owner's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed your stay at our home. I'd like to reply to the minor issues you mentioned. We chose tan carpets because we felt they would go with the furniture, also we have them steam cleaned every 2-3 months. We do allow smoking outside. As a non-smoker I wouldn't want to see a dirty ashtray as well. I spoke with the cleaners and was told she didn't see it. Yuck! Lol. As for the ornaments, they are all very inexpensive...I smiled at that comment. I guess they look more expensive than I thought. Did you put both lamps on in the lounge area? Unfortunately, there is no over head light in that room, but when both lamps are on it's quite bright. The vertical blinds have since been replaced ..As for the paypal fee, that's beyond my control. I had suggested you do the bank to bank method since you were in the U.K. and told you about the fees, but that was the way you decided to pay. Overall, it sounds like you had a good vacation...as an owner, that's my main goal. Thanks again for booking with us.
