Overview

About the property

Encantada Resort, Kissimmee, Florida - Located in Beautiful, Secure, Gated Resort only 10 Minutes from Disney World

Our Florida rental home is situated in an enviable position only 10 minutes from the main entrance of Disney World.

We are in a private, gated resort with many outstanding on site facilities, these include 2 large swimming pools, 2 spa pools, catch and release fishing lake, play park, and a clubhouse with a gym, games rooms and free wi-fi.

Just off site are many beautiful golf courses.

Our home is on a slightly elevated level giving wonderful views over the peaceful lake and resort, but allowing for our own pool and patio to be private and not overlooked at the rear.

We can sleep up to 9 comfortably as well as a travel cot for a baby to use.

All the essentials for an unforgettable holiday are included from bed linen and towels to crockery and washing machine.

Our home was built in 2007 and in 2008 when we bought it we completely re-furbished the house to a luxurious standard giving it a modern and homely feel, everything has been chosen to help you have a relaxing stay in the holiday capital of the world.

Every year when we visit we upgrade and re-new many items in our home, so hopefully making your holiday a more enjoyable experience.

This year 2017 we have installed a brand new AC system and renewed the Pool Heater.

We bought some new furniture, and a very comfortable 'Memory Foam' Sofa Bed, once again we renewed all the bedding and most of the towels!!

We offer generous discounts for repeat guests, and we now have many taking full advantage of this ............ one family have even bought a house a few doors down the street from us and we have enjoyed a few evening drinks with them comparing notes ;) For us and Encantada a fabulous Advert !!

About Mrs Caroline Reid

Hello, I now live in Singapore with my husband Brian, I have 3 grown up children, Samantha, Barry and David, and a beautiful granddaughter Lily who are still living back in Scotland.

In 2008 I sold a business I had started in 1999 and decided to invest the money in a holiday home. Florida was the place for us, so with my daughter Samantha, we went on a house hunt, we had a brilliant time and as an added bonus we found our ideal home!!

We have decorated and furnished our home to a very high standard. Each year when we visit we always spend time and money doing upgrades and renewals that have kept our home looking and feeling unique at Encantada. This year 2017 we installed a brand new AC system and a new Pool Heater.

We Love our 2nd home and hope that you will too, all we ask is you look after it and respect it like it was your own

Happy Holidays

Caroline x

Mrs Caroline Reid purchased this house in 2008

Why Mrs Caroline Reid chose Disney / Orlando

After driving all round Orlando and looking at dozens of homes, many of which, were larger but much further from all the 'to do things', we were immediately drawn to the fabulous facilities including the large community pools, clubhouse, fishing lake, beautiful landscaping and friendliness at Encantada.

The resort, on the edge of Kissimmee and genuinely less than 10 minutes drive from the gates of Disney and no more than 30 minutes from any of the other star attractions, is fantastic.

Being only 25 minutes from the Airport was another bonus for us, as was the fact that we are only an hour from either the East or West coast beaches.

Inside Encantada is like another world, it is quiet, relaxed and hard to believe you are actually so close to all the action ..... the Perfect Location !

What makes this house unique

Our lovely house although very close to all the attractions is situated in a superb resort that is so peaceful and tranquil it feels like another world.

We can relax in our own private pool and do absolutely nothing all day or we can take a very short drive to anywhere and do virtually anything Florida has to offer.

In the evening we are lucky to be so close to dozens of very good and reasonably priced eateries something we love!!

We also stay home and BBQ a lot and chill by the pool with a wee vino.

We are opposite some of the best golfing in Orlando, at Orange Lakes, where there is a choice of courses to suit all players.

The catch and release fishing lake with rod rental from the clubhouse is another great way to relax, all in all we love our holday home and are sure you will too.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hiya Caroline, how are you?

Just a note to let you know we had a fantastic time at the house again and gutted we're home. Was another great holiday and thanks for the use of your house again.

Hopefully we'll use your home again if and when we return, though we're planning on moving about a bit next time to see the keys and the gulf coast.

I'll be in touch in the future again.

Thanks

Map

Car: recommended

Special interest holidays:

Golfers flock to central Florida to play golf all year round with many preferring to visit between October and April when the temperature is warm and humidity is low making it more comfortable to play.

Our rental prices are also less during this time !!

We also welcome guests who wish to stay long term over the winter to enjoy the mild temperatures and avoid the bad weather at home, we can arrange special rates for these guests so please ask for details.

Coast/Beach:

We are approximately 50 minutes drive from Cocoa Beach, Cape Canaveral and the famous Daytona beach on the Atlantic coast. About 1 hours drive to the west coast on the Gulf of Mexico are several beautiful powder white sandy beaches including, Clearwater, St Petes and the beautiful Marina at Sarasota is a must see for boat lovers and those wanting to try deep sea fishing.

An abundance of excellent restaurants here serve wonderful fresh seafood or just sit with a drink and relax for a while!

Travel:

Orlando International Airport is a 20-30 minute drive away. Orlando Sanford takes around 45 minutes. Both are convenient for visiting our home.

Car hire is highly recommended, fuel is cheap and the road network is very easy to navigate and well signed. Maps are given out by car hire companies and GPS can be hired for an extra charge.

We are happy to recommend the ones we have used.

Distances:

10 minutes to Walt Disney World - Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney MGM Studios, Animal Kingdom, Downtown Disney, Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon. 10 minutes to Sea World and Aquatica. 20 minutes to Universal Studios, wet n wild and International Drive.

Shopping at Mall of Millenia, Florida Mall, Winter Garden, Premium and Prime Outlets are all just between 20 & 30 minutes away.

The quaint town of Celebration with its many cafes and restaurants is less than 5 minutes away, & well worth a visit.

Further Details:

Encantada is sited off the US 192 road, along here are literally 100's of shops and restaurants. A 10 minute walk from the house there is a 7/11 convenience store with petrol, MacDonalds, Pizza Hut, and Bruno's Italian.

2 minutes drive along the 192 there is an enormous Super Target selling absolutely everything and more!!

If you prefer Walmart our nearest one is about 5 minutes drive from the house, along the I27.

Many of the local shops have ATM machines inside and Walmart often have bank branches in them.

Tickets for many attractions are sold everywhere and many discount vouchers for these, as well as for local eateries and restaurants can be picked up locally, including at the Encantada clubhouse where there are many offers available.

Beautiful well kept property with everything you will need and very helpful owner.

  • 5 of 5

This property is simply lovely. It is spotlessly clean and had everything that we needed and more. Our children loved the splash pool. Caroline is delightful. She is so helpful, answering any questions promptly and is very friendly. We absolutely loved our stay in this property and would have no hesitation in recommending it to friends and family. Encantada is a lovely place to stay. It is close everything we needed including Disney, restaurants and supermarkets. We will be looking to return to Florida ourselves in the future and would want to stay in this property when we do return.

Excellent place to stay !

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in September 2017 and would definitely stay again. When we arrived late on a Saturday night it was easy to access the resort and property using the instructions that Caroline had sent prior to our departure. The property is very clean and homely. We found lots of extra bed linen and bedding as well as lots of clean fluffy towels. The kitchen contained everything we needed including plastic plates and bowls for our children which were very handy! Having our own private pool was very useful too and the children loved it. The best thing about this property though is definitely its location. It took us no longer than 15 minutes to drive to the Disney parks. We will definitely be booking again if we return to Orlando.

Exactly what we needed

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived the maid had not cleaned from the previous guests. I emailed the owner ASAP and the maid was out the next day and money refunded. Overall this was a great experience, the house was well maintained and very nicely decorated. Perfect for what we needed. In the owners direction it says the toll is 2 dollar for 528, but has increased to 3. I will rent from Caroline again if I am ever in the area.

Also thanks for the heads up about the increased toll payment, I shall have to adjust my information for the guests 😉. I look forward to the next time you are in Orlando and welcoming you to Encantada Caroline x

Perfect as a family retreat and close to the Disney Parks

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 4 and the villa was a great size for us, but could easily accommodate more as there are 3 double-beds. It is also much closer to the parks than anything in the Davenport area. The pool is small but plenty big enough to cool off in at the end of a hot day. The facilities were just what you need (washing machine, tumble dryer, dishwasher) and the water filter is a great added bonus - saved us having to buy bottled water every day. We had a great time, would recommend it to anyone and are likely to go back next time we do Walt Disney World.

Wow!! - beautiful, well equiped property in a beautiful and peaceful location.

  • 5 of 5

Just as described and more. Recently upgraded. Property was well equiped with all essential items; plenty of bedlinen and towels for the whole family, including beach towels. Property situated on a beautiful resort close to all major routes and attractions. Additional facilities in resort clubhouse if required including gym, daily activities for children, bar which also serves snacks. Resort itself is well maintained. My family and I have previously stayed at this resort but different property. This time we stayed for 3 weeks at this beautiful property and will hopefully be back at some point in the future. The comfort and enjoyment of the property certainly contributed towards us having a fantastic holiday. Thank you to property owner Caroline Reid who was always responsive and informative when contacted. 👌🏻
