About Sue Bell

We are English, but currently live in France. We decided to buy a place near Kissimmee, as our kids are a perfect age to appreciate all the nearby parks. We had been a few times, and got fed up with cramped hotel rooms. We looked at various resorts in the kissimmee area, and decided that the "Encantada" resort was the best.

We plan to go every year. We love our house, and know you will too.

Sue Bell purchased this villa in 2010

Why Sue Bell chose Kissimmee

"Encantada" is only 5 minutes from Disney. There are a "super target" and a "Publix" just round the corner. And HW192 is packed with good restaurants, crazy golf etc

What makes this villa unique

Having your own fenced in pool (no mosquitos) is great to relax in after a hard day at the parks, or a day at the malls. It is also so close to the clubhouse, that it doesn't matter if you forget to take something to the big pools - just pop back.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The townhouse was perfect for us. There were 6 of us in total including a 4 and 11 year old. We didn't spend much time at the house but it had everything we needed when we were there. All the rooms were a good size, well furnished and very comfortable. The house itself was well situated and close to the clubhouse. The swimming pool at the house was great (but just to make you aware it will cost you an extra $25 a day to heat it). The little extras like an ice maker, inflatables and toys for the pool were great.

The clubhouse was very well run and they do organise entertainment like bingo evenings. The food there is good as well. They can also organise transfers and park tickets.



The resort itself was very close to Disney and being situated just off the 192 meant lots of shops and restaurants were a short drive away.



The owners Graham and Sue were always on hand for questions and always answered very quickly.



I would highly recommend this accommodation - perfect!!!

Excellent - Again

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed at this villa and had a great time once again. Graham and Sue deal with all correspondence quickly and effectively and make the booking process easy. The villa is lovely and in probably the best position in the resort - overlooking the lake and close (but not too close) to the clubhouse. We had no dealings with the management company but did on the previous stay and they were very efficient. The clubhouse is nice and staff are very friendly. My daughter did some of the activities at the clubhouse and thoroughly enjoyed it. Would happily stay here again. Thanks

Excellent house

  • 5 of 5

We were the fifth time in Encantada but for the first time in this house. It was the best of all. In the house everything you need and maintained. Good and fast communication with Sue & Graham. When we are back in Orlando we definitely take the house again. Many greetings, Mario and family

The Alexanders 2017 Orlando Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay at Graham & Sue's villa at the Encantada resort. This is a fantastic townhouse that is kept immaculate with new carpets having been fitted throughout. Located on the US192 it's close to all amenities and restaurants on your door step. You can miss out on most of the 192 traffic by using the toll road to Disney which is literally 3 mins from the villa. The villa is well maintained and any queries/issues are resolved promptly by the management company. I cannot recommend this villa highly enough it's perfect in all ways from location to interior. Graham is prompt at responding to emails and the perfect host. Thanks for making our stay in Orlando fantastic and can't wait to book again!!! The Alexander family

Fantastic stay, great villa, great location

  • 5 of 5

Title says it all. This is our second stay here and we love it. The villa is great, has everything you could want with a great view overlooking the lake and just yards from the resort pool. The resort is great, well maintained with a couple of pools and a lake. Location is great, it really is just minutes from Disney. Thanks for letting us stay in your villa, hopefully we'll be back :)

Great Property/ Location

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely love the Encantada Resort and this was our second stay at the resort in a different property. I love the fact that it's a gated community which makes us feel like we have that extra security.

The resort has a gym which I use on a daily basis so that I can eat whatever I want for the duration of the holiday.

The kids love the days off from the parks at the communal pools situated at the clubhouse which are always immaculate. The staff are always really friendly and helpful.

For me the location cannot be any better just off the 192. It gives you access to all the restaurants, supermarkets within a 5 minute drive. Even closer at the top of the street you have McDonalds, Subway, Pharmacy etc..

It literally takes 10/15 minutes to drive to any of the Disney Parks from the Villa. Disney Springs slightly longer.

20/25 minutes to Universal, Seaworld, Discovery Cove, Mall of Millenia, Premium Outlets.

1hr 10 minutes to Busch Gardens.

Uber taxi cost $15 from Encantada to Discovery Cove.

The Townhouse was spacious, modern, clean and had everything we needed for our 19 day vacation. I love the fact that you can jump in your own pool after coming back from the parks and being on the end it has the bigger pool with great views of the lake and fountain.

I had two very minor issues with the property that were dealt with that day by the management company whilst I was out at the parks. Each time they would leave a slip stating they had been in the property.

Graham and Sue were great to deal with and without a shadow of a doubt I will be back in touch when we plan our next Florida trip hopefully in the not too distant future.
