About the property

Dates in Feb and March have just been unblocked - Filling up fast

A true home like experience in a quiet community close to Disney attractions.

With over 2300 square feet of living area this five bedroom with two king and one queen masters and four bathrooms is fully furnished and equipped to meet the needs of couples, families and groups.

Our all inclusive rate includes Pool and Spa heat, WIFI, Long distance calling, and the use of our BarBQ.

We continue to make changes, and this fall (2017) we added a new Air Conditioner, Pool Heater, and redid the game area adding a Pool Table to replace the Air Hockey table.

The ground floor has a king master bedroom with en-suite washroom and walk-in closet, a second bedroom with twin beds and its own bathroom, with a shower suitable for someone with mobility problems (fitted handrails and an integral seat). You will love the convenient access to the pool area from the Master bathroom via a separate door.

To complete the first floor there is a dining room with a new dining table and server that will easily seat eight, a very well equipped kitchen area also with a new counter height table and four chairs. Next to it is the lving room with patio doors to the pool lanai.

The LG washer and dryer are located in the hallway closet leading to the garage.

The lving room has a sectional sofa and arm chair and its own 55' Smart TV with free NETFLIX and access to Web applications and a Blue Ray DVD player. There is a selection of DVDs, CD's, books, and games suitable for all ages. There are over 100 channels available including BBC America and ESPN and Fox Sports for European football. High speed wireless internet access is available for your use.

You will find cordless telephones in most of the rooms, with free North American long distance including US, Canada, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. Free long distance calls to Europe are also provided on request.

The garage has been converted to a games room with pool and foosball tables. There is also an extra refridgerator in the garage providing increased food storage space.

Upstairs there is a second king master bedroom with en-suite and walk-in closet, a twin bed room and another bedroom with Queen bed. The twin and Queen bedrooms share a Jack and Jill washroom. All the bedrooms have their own LED TVs.

Outside you will find an enclosed 30 foot by 15 foot heated swimming pool with a built in spa that is heated separately. It is surrounded by one of the more spacious pool decks in Silver Creek for play or relaxation after a day at the parks. The south-west exposure ensures that you can enjoy the afternoon sun and top up that tan on one of our four sun-loungers. Florida Glass (opaque screening) provides for extra privacy. A well furnished lanai provides shade and a patio table for casual dining on the beautiful Florida evenings. There is a wall mounted 40' LCD TV to the lanai, allowing our guests to watch their favorite programs while enjoying the weather outside.

Families with young children need not worry about pool safety since there is a secure pool fence to prevent accidents. If they have any energy to burn after a visit to the parks, there is a new community Playground within walking distance for them to play on.

The house has air conditioning and central heating, and all rooms have ceiling fans. Our local management firm is available to assist you with any issues that you might have.

About Denis Lajoie

Julie and Denis Lajoie, Quebec, Canada

After several years of renting vacation properties in Florida, my wife and I decided to purchase a home of our own and to make it available for others to enjoy when we are not there. The home had been well maintained by the previous owners who purchased it new in 2005, and since we purchased in 2011 we have continued to make improvements. We have also added some personal touches and upgraded many items to make ours, and our guests stay, more enjoyable.

Denis Lajoie purchased this house in 2011

Why Denis Lajoie chose Silver Creek

We have been visiting Orlando for many years begining with our children and now with our adult children and grandchildren. We always enjoy our trips to Disney, EPCOT, Universal and the other Orlando attractions. We also take the time to enjoy the many golf courses that are in close proximity along with the excellent restaurants and bars.

Silver Creek is the ideal community offering access to the parks that are only minutes away, while offering a peaceful and enjoyable setting for enjoying the Florida sun. The beaches on either coast are only an hour and a half away.

What makes this house unique

Silver Creek is an idyllic community that is close to everything yet quiet and safe. You can leave the noise and the traffic behind and relax in the villa or go for long walks along the manicured streets. We continue to be amazed at the starlit nights with so little light pollution even though we are so close to everything.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Another wonderful family vacation in your house! We truly love this place and its very comfortable! Of cours the pool was used constantly.

See you next year

Decent home, but not what I expect in a rental

  • 2 of 5

This house is more of a second home that just so happens to be rented out occasionally than a house that is only used as a rental. That means that a lot of things in the house are there for the convenience of the owners and not paying guests. For example, the towels in the house. The owners need to visit the nearby Walmart and spend a few hundred dollars replacing towels. The towels that are provided are all mismatched and many have rips, holes, or permanent stains.They all have a smell to them. The cleaning service left us two washcloths in the washer that both had brown matter on them we didn’t attempt to identify. If you stay here and the towels haven’t been replaced and are still mismatched, do not wash your clothes with them or your clothes will smell. Most of the drinking glasses in the kitchen are dusty and need to be cleaned and a minimum or, replaced with a matching set. There’s everything from McDonald’s cups to plastic cups to various glasses. Like the towels, everything in the kitchen looks like a hand-me-down from another house.

In general, the house needs a good deep cleaning from a professional cleaning service. Most of the air returns for the HVAC are caked in dust. The same is true of the baseboards through most of the house… they need a good scrubbing. The carpet in the house is also getting very worn and stained in places and should be replaced. The television in the living room by be smart, but you'll have to be smart to operate it. It has EIGHT remote controls. The instructions that were left in the living room weren’t clear about which remote to use. If you’re technologically challenged, you’re going to have a hard time getting it to work right.

Then, there’s the trash situation. When we arrived, the previous renters had generated a significant amount of garbage. My wife, daughter, and I had to pick up two bags worth of garbage... in the rain... because they stored it improperly. I contacted Denis who said that putting out trash was not our responsibility and that the landscaper or his management company are supposed to handle it. He said that he would contact his management company, but they never came by that I could tell. I followed up with Denis a second time via email and he did not respond. I contacted the city to find out when garbage pickup was so that we wouldn't have to leave a pile of garbage in the house.

Owner's Response: It is unfortunate that this guest chose to vent on Christmas Day. Our daughter is dying from cancer and we are having her here for Christmas dinner. A message like his does not start the day off well. We would normally be in he villa during Thanksgiving but due to her illness we decided to rent to this person. Obviously a mistake. To future guests, please read other reviews left by recent guests to see how unfair this one is to me and about our home. We have been renting our home out for since 2011 and this is by far the most unfair rating we have ever received. It is also clearly a rant that should be taken with a grain of salt. In response to the rant: My wife and I spend 6 months of the year in the house but have no control over what the guests or the weather does while we are not there. We have changed all the furniture and TV's in the house. This year we changed the air conditioning, and this week replaced the pool heater and purchased a pool table to upgrade the game room. We have also had to replace a new dining room table and a living room sofa chair due to damage done buy guests. When we arrive in the fall all towels, glasses, utensils and cookware are checked and used ones replaced. There are no "hand me downs". There are matching sets of everything but they do get moved around by the guests and cleaning staff. My wife and I spend a few days getting everything organized in the cupboards and closets when we arrive. The property manager did notice stains on the carpet in several rooms of the house after this guest left. I had the carpets cleaned but did not hold back any money from their security deposit. The carpets are admittedly beginning to show their age and we are planning to change them this winter. . I went to the villa for a week to check on it after the guests left and did notice all the TV and system controls on the coffee table. I will admit that it is not everyone that can understand the instructions left to use the entertainment centre and universal remotes. I will look at simplifying it. As explained to the quest, the garbage storage bin was damaged by the recent hurricane and needs to be replaced. The garbage was not put out prior to their arrival so animals go into it. The bin will be replaced and the Management Company was advised of the issue when the guests were there. Finally the towels do smell moldy if not dried properly before putting away. Now we will try to enjoy Christmas Day.

Perfect place for multi-familes!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this home! We had 3 families, 8 adults, 2 teenagers and a two year old. It was perfect for multi-family vacations. Each family had their own bathroom. Lots room and a great outdoor space for grilling out. There is a TV outside and a nice table that everyone can sit at. The pool was heated and the hot tub was a nice touch. Kitchen was well stocked with all appliances and dishes.

Fantastic villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic 3 week holiday staying in this lovely villa. There were 9 people from 2 families sharing and there was plenty of space for everyone. The villa came equipped with everything you could need and the pool and air conditioning were great in the hot weather. We had a couple of issues but these were sorted out immediately for us. We would highly recommend this villa.

A lovely villa which is in a beautiful neighbourhood. Very well maintained and furnished to a high standard. Last, but not least, owned by a lovely helpful couple who did everything possible to make sure our stay went as smoothly as possible.
