About the property

Private and secluded, yet just minutes to all the Disney fun!

Quiet, as far as the ear can hear. Stars, as far as the sky can reach. Green, as far as the eye can see. Sumptuous detailing and designer décor. Luxe linens and mood lighting. Touches of luxury, everywhere you look.

Think you can’t have it all, and stay near Disney?

Villa Riva begs to differ.

Private and secluded, yet just minutes to all the Disney fun, this cozy home is built for families. Built for you.

The south facing pool begs fun. The steamy spa invites romance. The game room calls for friendly competition. And the cushy sofas, well, they’re equally happy hosting a movie marathon or an afternoon nap.

Villa Riva is the best of all worlds – a villa both minutes to Disney, and secluded into its own little slice of paradise. Your paradise.




We know that family vacations should be about family – about eating together, playing together, and making memories together. Whether it’s just you and your newlywed, your only kiddo, or an extended family meet-at-Disney extravaganza.

Villa Riva is designed for just this kind of family vacation: When you’re not enjoying Disney, you’ll be at this home-away-from-home, dining indoors and out, splashing in the pool and organizing competitions in the game room, or gearing up for a movie marathon.

There’s an unwritten rule in Central Florida: If it’s sunny outside – and it’s almost always sunny outside! – you should be outside. Our screened pool deck and lanai are the perfect place to follow this “rule,” offering a bug-free respite for pool parties, barbecuing, outdoor dining, and soaking in the spa.

And when you head indoors, the living area is arranged in a great-room concept, featuring a large flat-screen TV and digital cable box, a Brighthouse digital cable lineup, and DVD player. Oh, and the game room is pretty sweet, too.



Central Florida is the land of outdoor living and backyard pools. It’s also the land of zero privacy – of pools stacked side-by-side like dominoes, so exposed you get splashed when your neighbour's kids jump in.

Not at Villa Riva! Villa Riva offers a Central Florida rarity: a private pool, surrounded on two sides by a privacy fence.

In a word, it’s paradise. Paradise: Sunbathing with not a neighbour to see you. Paradise: Letting the kids cannonball to their heart’s content, without worrying about who they’ll splash. Paradise: Slathering on the sunblock without worrying what’s showing. Paradise: A beautiful pool, heated when you need it. Paradise: Privacy.

As always, we care as much about safety as we do about fun. We keep your little ones safe with pool alarms on the doors that lead to the pool and spa.



If you appreciated privacy at the pool, you’ll cherish it at the hot tub. Your very own, very romantic, and very relaxing hot tub.

Allow us to set the scene: It’s night-time in Kissimmee, and the stars are out. Thousands of them, it seems. They’re twinkling in the inky sky: the Big Dipper, Orion, the North Star – they’re all there.

You step out onto the pool deck. It’s late and it’s quiet. You’ve poured yourself a frosty beer or a generous glass of wine.

The spa is bubbling. The steam is rising. You dip a toe in – perfect! You slip in, into the heat, into the bubbles, into the massaging jets.




Oh, and that south-facing pool and bubbling spa? They don’t overlook other homes, but rather border a greenbelt with no rear neighbours. Privacy and a view? We’ll take it!



Need to stay connected? No problem. Our high-speed WiFi internet covers the entire home, and even extends out over the pool deck. You are go for poolside selfies.



Vacation should feel a little finer, a little fancier, a little more sumptuous than everyday life – right?

Villa Riva is your touch of luxury. Our home benefits from the talents of professional interior designers, who furnished our home in plush seating, soft linens, impeccable taste, and all the other special touches you’d expect.



Have an animal lover in the house? Villa Riva’s reptile-themed kid’s bedroom is decorated with birds, frogs, gators and other Florida reptiles, and finished in a homey green-and-coffee wetlands color palette.

And hey, if the kids aren’t into cold blooded creatures, they’re sure to love our second twin bedroom – bunkbeds! With a TV. The big kid of your bunch will enjoy the exclusive view from the top bunk.

At Villa Riva, you always get to be the fun parent. Win-win.



Fancy some indoor fun? We converted Villa Riva’s garage into a well equipped game room, complete with a wall-mounted TV, kid-friendly Wii game console, and a combination pool-air hockey-ping pong table. Who’s up for a friendly round?



There’s just something about having breakfast in your pajamas, especially on a late vacation morning. Even if you don’t feel like making lunch or cooking dinner, you definitely appreciate your coffee with a side of slippers.

Villa Riva’s fully equipped kitchen is perfect, for anything from a breakfast of cereal to a multi-course family dinner. You have the standard oven, stove cooktop/hob, fridge/freezer, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, and dishwasher, as well as pots and pans, dinnerware (plates, glasses, flatware, etc. for up to 8 guests), and a host of other kitchen equipment, gadgets and doodads. Please, make yourself home, if only to find the cereal bowls.



Parents know: Packing for a vacation with kids, especially little kids, is the worst. The absolute worst. There’s no way you can fit all the required baby gear in your suitcases, but of course, you need your littlest family members to be safe and happy while traveling.

We care about your children (and your sanity), so we’ve stocked all our villas with high chairs, strollers, pack-and-plays, and other baby gear. Whatever you need, let us know. We have lots of baby and toddler accoutrements on hand, so we’ll be happy to accommodate.



We take great pride and joy in our vacation homes. That’s why personally inspect our rentals at least twice a year, to be sure that everything adheres to our high standards. What’s more, every year, we improve and upgrade our villas.

To us, “good enough” is never good enough; we want our vacation rentals to exceed your expectations.



We are fully licensed at both the county and state levels. First and foremost, that means we follow the rules and prioritize your safety: We’ve installed fire extinguishers, smoke alarms, and emergency lighting in all the right places. We maintain tight safety measures at our pools. And all our homes are subject to periodic inspection, by the county and state, so you know that we’re still up-to-date on those safety requirements.

Our vacation rentals are legal and above-board. We pay our taxes. You can check our existence in the public records. (Feel free to ask how. We’re happy to share.)

It all boils down to this: You, your family, and your friends are safe with us. Your booking is secure. Your vacation rental is guaranteed.

The only thing standing between you and your dream vacation, is the Book button. Click away!



We get it – you don’t know us from the next guy. And simply trusting that we’re trustworthy? You weren’t born yesterday.

But trustworthy, we are – and we’ll do our best to prove it, well before you commit to booking. It starts with our response times (often within minutes, never more than a few hours). We go out of our way to answer all of your questions. And we’re honest about it; we won’t fib or exaggerate. We won’t tell you a home is 10 minutes from Disney, when it’s really 30 minutes in normal traffic.

What’s more, we’re legal, we’re licensed, and we’re insured – and we can prove it. (Just ask. We’ll happily show you where and how to verify.)

Further proof that we deliver on our promises? One of our homes, Villa Palmera, was invited into HomeAway’s exclusive Luxury Rentals site. We were chosen from among thousands of Disney homes, and represent one of just nine 4-bedroom luxury homes in the entire Disney area. In fact, there are only 60 luxury home rentals listed in all of Florida. We’re honored to be one of them!

And if that’s not enough, just have a look at our reviews. You can’t fake the trust our renters have in us!

Why Stephen Ward chose Indian Point


Have you ever lived a Vacation Rental Nightmare? It’s 9 p.m. and the toilet’s overflowing. Or you’re fresh out of clean clothes and the washing machine breaks down mid-cycle. Or perhaps you’re locked out, or you can’t find the wine opener, or you just need a late-night restaurant recommendation.

You call, and you call, and you call. But the property manager doesn’t pick up. Or, she does but she’s based across the country and has no local, emergency contacts to help you tonight. You’ll have to wait until tomorrow; they’ll be there sometime between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m.

Suddenly, your vacation has morphed into something very different than the relaxing escape you had hoped it would be.

We know that the details – the big AND little details – can make or break your vacation. That’s why we’re committed to you, to your experience. We’re local – in just a few minutes, we can be at your front door – and we’re available 24/7, every day of the year, via phone, text or email. What’s more, we have the local professional contacts to handle any emergency, no matter the hour. We’ll get that toilet fixed, tonight.

Oh, and as we mentioned, we’ve been in the Disney area for 15 years, so we’re also good for those restaurant recommendations. Ask us where to find the best cheesy chips.

What makes this villa unique


Customer service is the cornerstone of our business, and we know it all begins the moment you first email us. We’re always at the ready, so we respond generally within the hour and sometimes within minutes. That’s 24 hours a day, every day of the year. We’ll never leave you hanging.

Of course, it’s not just about how quickly we respond, but about the quality of our responses. This is the part where we tell you how much we love the Disney area, and how excited we are to share it with you. And did we mention? We’ve been on both sides of the fence – more than 15 years ago, we first came here as renters – so we know what matters to you.

Want some great restaurant recommendations? We’ve got ‘em.

Need discount park tickets? We know how to snag them.

Searching for the cheapest car rentals? Not a problem.

Seeking the best microbrews in Florida? We’ll point the way.

Looking for Segway rentals? We know where.

When you rent with us, you’re treated to very personal (and very free!) vacation planning and concierge service. Everything you need, plus all that you could want. So go on, mine our knowledge for all it’s worth. That’s what we’re here for.



We may pride ourselves on personalized service, but part of our quality promise is actually just the opposite: We’ve taken the personal out of check-in. Forget having to meet us at the office, on our terms, during our business hours.

We’re happy to say, we’ve gone digital – at least, as far as check-in is concerned. All of our rentals have keyless entry, so there are no lockboxes, no keys to collect, and no stressful meet-ups. (We all know how fun those are, especially when you throw in elements like a delayed flight.)

When you book with us, we’ll send you a digital welcome guide, packed with helpful information about your rental and the surrounding area. And of course, we’ll let you know how to check-in.

If you’re looking for a great location, but refuse to compromise on convenience and space, on comforts and affordability – welcome. Four-bedroom Villa Riva is a welcoming getaway in Indian Point, a popular community located just a hop, skip and a jump from Disney. (See bullet points, below, for drive times.)

Villa Riva manages to pack two important location musts – privacy and accessibility – into a single home: Close to Disney, but not too close, the villa’s cul-de-sac setting grants you privacy and quiet – even though you’re only 20 minutes to the theme parks.

In between your private retreat and downtown Disney, you’ll have easy access to all the necessities. ALDI and a 24-hour Walmart Supercenter are just two minutes away, should you need to stock up on something – even at 2 a.m. Additionally, there are plenty of restaurants, from big-name chains to best-kept Kissimmee secrets, within a few miles of Villa Riva. (Ask about our favorites!)

We’re adamant about ethics and honest rental descriptions, so we’ll never embellish how close our villas are to the destinations that matter to you. So, let’s cut to the chase: Villa Riva is located about 10 miles to Disney. In are-we-there-yet?!? terms, this means:

• Hollywood Studios and Epcot: 20 minutes (faster, if you hit the green lights!)

• Magic Kingdom: 30 minutes

• Animal Kingdom and Sea World: 25 minutes

• Universal Studios: 35 minutes

• LEGOLAND: 40 minutes

• Busch Gardens and the Kennedy Space Center: Just over an hour

Absolute perfection.

  • 5 of 5

We came here on our honeymoon four years ago and loved it. We've wanted to return since and finally got around to it this year. The home is gorgeous, not your typical white walls and terrible furniture villa. The master bed is unbelievably comfortable, the sheets and covers are soft and smooth throughout and the kitchen is very well equipped.

On arrival you could be forgiven for being slightly underwhelmed by the facade, it looks small and unassuming from the front, but as soon as you enter the home the main living area opens up to a big open space with high vaulted ceilings and tonnes of space for big families. There are 4 bedrooms, the master with a huge bed (bigger than a uk superking), a U.K. King size in the front room, two singles in the 2nd room and bunks in the 3rd, double on the bottom and single on top. There are large closets in every room and a walk in wardrobe in the master.

The pool area is the real gem here, though. We searched long and hard for true privacy and you get it here. There is nothing behind the house so all you see is a grassy hill and either side of the pool is fenced in so you're not staring through a net at your neighbours. The pool area is not overlooked from any angle and is totally private.

The home has fast and reliable wifi, no problems at all handling multiple devices. The air conditioning keeps the house comfortable at all times and there are several ceiling fans around the place to keep the rooms feeling fresh.

Villa Riva is right at the end of a very quiet cul-de-sac. You get no traffic coming past at all. There is a huge Walmart a 5 minute drive away as well as countless restaurants and stores in the area. All the parks are a relatively short drive away and the airport is around half an hour by car. You will encounter a couple of toll roads on the way to/from the airport so have a bit of cash handy. They're not a lot, $1.50 or $2.00 a time but there are 2 or 3 of them.

We have loved every minute here and can't wait to return next year.

Great location for all Orlando has to offer and a quiet location for a family sized villa.

  • 4 of 5

The communication from the owners was first class and the website link you get specific to your stay with door and alarm codes amongst other information was a nice touch I thought. The villa was clean and tidy, with everything we needed. The pool was a nice distraction for the children on a few days where we decided to take it a bit easier, the rest of the time it was a good location for the parks, 20 minutes to Disney and about 30 minutes to Universal and Seaworld.

There are lots of local restraunts to dine at both breakfast and dinner within a 5-10 minute drive, we didn't cook at the villa, but could have easily if we'd have wanted to.

The only down side about the villa I would say is the bathrooms look a bit tired but do have what you need. The 4th bedroom was used by my girls as they liked the bunk bed, but a word of warning, the ceiling fan is too close to the top bunk for my liking and my eldest did have a slight accident with it (Undamaged but a bump to the head). Overall the villa was really good and we are glad be based ourselves at Indian Point and would definitely recommend it.

Very High Standard

  • 4 of 5

We were very impressed with the Villa, it was spacious, and clean with a well stocked kitchen. The directions form the airport,( which we all worry about) were precise and clear and got us there first time, albeit in a thunder storm! We would highly recommend this Villa for a family holiday, as relaxing after a long day at the parks.

Clean, spacious and as described on the website

  • 5 of 5

We had 2 very enjoyable weeks at Villa Riva in July with a good location for the parks. Everything in the villa was as expected and advertised. The villa was clean and presentable.

The owner answered our queries quickly and the management company could not be faulted when we had reason to call them.

The pool was a welcome aspect at a the end of a hot day.

Thank you Stephen for letting us stay in your Villa.

Owner's Response: Thanks for a great review, its good to hear you enjoyed Villa Riva! I know you experienced the efficiency of our management company at first hand when you called them out following the failure of the AC thermostat. Although this was on a Sunday evening a new thermostat was supplied and installed later that evening.

This villa had everything we needed in the area near to everything we wanted to do.

  • 5 of 5

Villa Riva was the perfect place for me and my husband to relax. The location at the end of a culdesac meant no through traffic and out back the outlook from the pool was just open grassland, very peaceful. Inside the villa was very claen and master bed very comfortable ( we only used one bed as only 2 of us). The pool was a dream to come home to after days out to relax and cool off!. It was our 4th time in orlando and the villa was one of the best we have stayed in! Diane, Yorkshire UK.

Perfect vacation at Villa Riva

  • 5 of 5

We have just come back from a wonderful two week stay in Villa Riva. Perfect location being near a supermarket, plenty of restaurants and crazy golf with great access to all the parks, situated in a peaceful location which is a great escape from the parks. Villa is extremely spacious, very comfortable and decorated beautifully throughout. The management company and owner are extremely helpful if you require help with anything.
