|Minimum Stay||5 nights|
In life, you always have to make a choice: Do you want plenty of space or a great location? Do you prefer beautiful views or awesome amenities? Can you forgo the luxuries for affordability?
Because you can’t have it all. You’ve heard it time and time again.
Except, sometimes you can. Villa Bonita is the proof.
This four-bedroom family home is the definition of having it all: A short drive to Disney and a bargain to boot, this comfortable villa boasts a south facing pool and game room, is packed with amenities, looks out onto lush green views, and even throws in extras like free whole-home (and pool-deck) WiFi. Even the game room is air conditioned!
We dare you to believe you can have it all. Maybe just this once. It must be the Disney magic! See all our amazing homes at www.seneca108.com !
♠♠♠ SPACIOUS FAMILY LIVING ♠♠♠
A Disney vacation is a family vacation – a time to make memories, a time for laughter, a time for togetherness. A time for epic games of Marco Polo, of night-long movie marathons, of teaching the kiddos how to shoot some pool.
You need a home built for family fun. You need Villa Bonita.
We’ll start with the outdoor pool and pool deck: South-facing and drenched in the golden Florida sun, this is THE spot for mornings, afternoons, and evenings outside. Yes, even in the cooler months; the pool can be heated, so hop on in!
The vacation extravaganza doesn’t stop at the deck doors, though. Step inside, and take your pick: movies in the living room, or games (air hockey, pool, or foosball) in the game room? Sorry, but Villa Bonita does make for some tough choices. We don’t think you’ll mind, though.
When it’s time to eat, there’s plenty of room to seat the whole family. In the kitchen, you’ll find an ornate dining table, which works perfectly for breakfast or as a kid’s table. For more formal dining, head into the dining room near the front of the home. And for low-key eating, there’s no better place than dining alfresco by the pool. There’s even a sun umbrella to shade your eyes.
♠♠♠ NEAR TOTAL PRIVACY AT THE SWIMMING POOL ♠♠♠
No matter the season, be it summer or winter, Florida is made for outdoor living. Specifically, for pool living: For lathering on the sunblock (you’ll need it on our south-facing, sun-drenched pool deck!), donning your swimsuit, and splashing the day away.
Unfortunately, most Florida homes have zero pool privacy. Most, but not Villa Bonita! At Villa Bonita, you can swim and splash and sunbathe in almost total privacy.
We’re talking privacy of the glorious variety – the kind that means no one to overlook your pool deck. The kind that means you can dive on in, without worrying that you’ll splash the neighbour's book. The kind that means you can reapply your sunblock, without a care for which parts are showing. It’s the little things.
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 deck.
♠♠♠ FAST, WHOLE-HOME WIFI INTERNET ♠♠♠
Need to stay connected? No problem. Our high-speed WiFi internet covers the entire home, and even extends out over the pool deck. Look, you’re on vacation; there’s no shame in poolside selfies!
♠♠♠ POOL ACCESS FROM THE MASTER ♠♠♠
Late to bed or early to rise? Not a problem at Villa Bonita: Your oversized master suite opens directly onto the pool deck, so whether you’re a night owl or an early bird, you can enjoy the pool without waking the rest of your family.
♠♠♠ BEDS FOR EVERYONE ♠♠♠
Speaking of the bedrooms, Villa Bonita has something for everyone – even if you’re traveling with extended family, a bunch of kids, or just yourselves.
The pool-access master suite is very spacious, offering a comfortable king-sized bed, flat-screen TV, and large sliding doors to the pool: Open them up and let the sun stream in, or close the blinds for a peaceful night’s sleep. The ensuite master bathroom boasts a double vanity, shower, and separate bathtub.
The second bedroom offers a plush queen-sized bed and flat-screen TV. It shares a full bathroom with the two twin rooms.
The twin bedrooms each have two twin beds and flat-screen TVs. They share a full bathroom with the queen bedroom.
Plenty of towels and high quality linens are provided for all four bedrooms.
♠♠♠ FAMILY FUN, THY NAME IS GAME ROOM ♠♠♠
Fancy a round of pool or a quick foosball match? Villa Bonita has you covered. We’ve converted the garage into a family-friendly game room, complete with foosball (table football), air hockey, and pool (billiards). Rack ‘em up!
♠♠♠ FULLY EQUIPPED KITCHEN ♠♠♠
There’s nothing quite like waking up, heading into “your own” kitchen, and brewing up a pot of hot coffee to start the day. Or, on the flip side, there’s nothing quite like winding down by making yourself a fresh cocktail, or scooping yourself a cone of ice cream, or popping up some buttery popcorn for your movie marathon.
There’s nothing like having your own kitchen, even when you’re on vacation. Because, even if you don’t plan on cooking, a hotel mini-bar just doesn’t cut it for your family.
That’s why we’ve outfitted Villa Bonita’s kitchen with everything you need, and then some: an oven, stove cooktop/hob, fridge/freezer, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, and dishwasher, to start. Then, the pots and pans, the dinnerware, the silverware. Yep, even the coffee filters and the corkscrew. Because we have your best interests at heart.
♠♠♠ SAFE & SECURE ♠♠♠
Rest easy, knowing that the Eagle Pointe community is monitored at each entrance with security cameras. Additionally, Villa Bonita itself is alarmed and protected via 24-hour monitoring.
♠♠♠ LOTS OF AMENITIES FOR KIDS ♠♠♠
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.
♠♠♠ LIGHTNING-FAST, PERSONALIZED SERVICE ♠♠♠
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.
♠♠♠ TRUSTWORTHY ♠♠♠
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.)

♠♠♠ RECENT UPGRADES ♠♠♠
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.
♠♠♠ PRIVATELY OWNED AND LOCALLY MANAGED ♠♠♠
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.
♠♠♠ A STRESS-FREE WELCOME ♠♠♠
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.

Really enjoyed our stay, would have given 5 star's but for the poor water pressure in the showers........pool area was fantastic and very clean plus very close to all the parks .
We stayed at Villa Bonita at Eagle Pointe. The villa was superbly situated for access to all the theme parks, restaurants and shopping. Easy to navigate your way to 192, International Drive and the I4.
Close to an excellent supermarket.
The villa was all we could have hoped for. Bright, spacious, airy and spotless. Very well equipped with all appliances you could ask for. Beds were very comfortable. All furnished to a high standard.
Living areas also very comfortable with large sofas to collapse on after a busy day out and about.
Pool area was fantastic. We spent time there every morning and evening. Nothing better than stepping in to your own pool after a hot busy day at Disney. We had no issues at all and Stephen Ward kept in touch to ensure we were totally satisfied with our accommodation. We would highly recommend Stephen Ward and hope to visit one of his villas in Orlando again next summer. Big thumbs up from the Ryan family.
Villa Bonita was very well presented with comfortable living areas and spacious bedrooms. We had a fantastic time at this Villa which had everything we needed to make our holiday a fabulous experience. Kitchen was very well stocked with appliances and dishes etc. We would definitely recommend this property to our friends.
The house was just perfect for the eight of us (6 adults and 2 kids under 12). It's nice, clean and very bright. The swimming pool and the garage with the billiard and other games were very appreciated by the kids. It's a good location if you want to go to Disney (about 20 min if there’s no traffic), to Kennedy Space center (about 1h30), Orland (+/- 30 min) or even see some alligators near the Vero Beach (+/- 2h). Although Stephen (the owner) does not live nearby, he was very helpfull answering our e-mails.
Accommodations were great, lots of room and close proximity to the parks and shopping! Weather was perfect!
Well stocked kitchen and lots of TVs, good wifi.
Had to get used to pool alarm but I guess it's Florida law to have them.
I would recommend this property, Stephen was a pleasure to work with.

We had a great time, the villa was central to all the parks. Stephen answered emails promptly and the management company sent someone straight away when we had an issue with the alarm. We did not find the pool needed heating, we used it daily a little cold at first but okay once we got in. Texas road house was a good place to eat. Would recommended the villa.
♠♠♠ LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! ♠♠♠
If you’re looking for a great location, but refuse to compromise on space and convenience, on comforts and affordability – welcome. Four-bedroom Villa Bonita is located in Eagle Point, a popular community accessible to Highway 192 and just a hop, skip and a jump from Disney. (See bullet points, below, for drive times.)
Just five minutes by car, and you’ll have access to all the necessities, including an ALDI and a 24-hour Walmart Supercenter. You know, in case you need to grab a last-minute ingredient for dinner, or another pool toy to delight the kids, or a board game to continue family game night – even if it is 2 a.m. Nearby, there are plenty of restaurants, too, from big-name chains to best-kept Kissimmee secrets. (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 Bonita 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: About 75 minutes
