About Angela Snell

Hi, we're the Snell family from Liverpool, England.

Angela Snell purchased this bungalow in 1999

Why Angela Snell chose Vista del Lago

We bought this home, with my parents when I was expecting our oldest son - he's 18 soon! We've had at least one visit a year since then, usually more! Our family has grown up here and mum and dad have settled into their retirement here too. We've always found it to be a perfect location and the most relaxing and homely place we could imagine. Come and try it for yourself...

What makes this bungalow unique

A real home from home in the heart of Disney and all that the area has to offer.

Nice place to stay, close to Disney

  • 4 of 5

My family and I stayed here over Christmas. It was a nice place to stay and close to Disney. If you are expecting the Ritz, this is not it. That is not meant as a bad thing, it is meant to set peoples expectations. If you are expecting a place the family can stay and be comfortable, you will be right at home. We enjoyed our stay and not having to share 1 bath was a big plus when it came time to get ready in the morning. The washer and dryer made it so we could bring less clothes and didn't have to bring dirty clothes home.

Angela was very responsive to my questions. The complex is gated and was quiet most of the time we were there. Glad we had a good stay and good weather during our vacation.

Nice, comfortable, and clean house perfect for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect for a family vacation to Disney World or Orlando. There is a beautiful lake in front of the house and the area is nice. The house is really clean and comfortable. We felt right at home during our stay! I recommend this house to anyone that wants to take a vacation and wants to feel at home while away from home!

Located in a quiet and peaceful setting. Yet close to amenities and Disney.

  • 4 of 5

Overall the property has a very homey feel and comfortable. The air-con system is quiet and efficient. Used only master room n room with bunk beds. Master rm bed was very comfortable. Bunk beds were ok, thicker mattress would give better sleep quality. Kitchen was well stocked with lots of plates, cups, cutlery and Tupperware containers. Location was nice and convenient, a quiet gated community and not just close to Disney but also supermarkets, Target, etc and Domino's was right next door. (Good for lazy dinner nights!)

Sanctuary in itself!!! Organized and attentive owner. Clear communication and directions. Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

You know a place is excellent when you didn't do anything, but stay "home"! This place is a truly so cozy! It was very clean and well appointed. Lots of space and has such an open and airy vibe. My daughter didn't sleep in the kids room, but she loved the decor and loved having "her own space" to play. Most evenings we all three wound up on the couch just conversing or playing. Two bathrooms that are well laid out, a very nice kitchen with an abundance of utensils, pots, and pans! Bring your K-Cups!! I was so pleased to find that machine! I'm the only one who drinks coffee so a whole pot will go to waste! I left behind some Earl Grey for the next lucky person as well!! :) I loved that there was a closet off the laundry with cleaning supplies! I like to tidy after ourselves, even though there will be a cleaning service follow behind. It's something I do out of respect for the people who are so trusting to open their space to my family!

On that note the washer and dryer being in house was such a creature comfort for me! I like being able to do up bath linens and clothes as we stay to avoid the mass laundry casualty on the arrival back home!

This location is centered among both coasts and is so close to all the fun of Disney. Had we the time I'm sure we would have ventured there. Shopping and multiple restraunts are within minutes of this house. The Publix just down the street comes highly recommended and as always has just what you need.

I recommend waking early and going out to the carport! I enjoyed so much watching the world wake up here!! The lizards and the little critters!! You are just across from a waterway so you feel so far away while being close to eveything! Mind the bin! Tie down the lid or bring it onto the covered porch at night! Said critters will come to visit your toss away! Days the trash pick up comes is on side of fridge!

The beds were so comfy and the pillows abundant!

We loved the family photos on the walls and felt that it just added a little something to the place. This is a home filled with good memories, good times, a love of togetherness, and adventure! You can feel that the moment you settle in. We are already planning our return when we have time to explore, we were down for a wedding so most of time was accounted for, we did make the haul to Indian Rocks Beach! Beautiful! But we were so happy to hit the doors to this home and snuggle into that soft bed!

Thanks again for your hospitality Snell family!!
