About the property

The South Facing Shimmering Pool Is The Focal Point Of This Tropical Retreat.

Whether you drench in sunlight or pool water, you’ll appreciate the privacy afforded with this large two bedroom/two bathroom open concept home. Great for those wanting relaxation and privacy and there are no rear neighbors and fencing all around. On the other side of the fence is a green belt that goes onto Mystic Dunes Golf course. There is a covered lanai that allows you to sit in the shade while dining poolside, or read a book while the kids splash the day away.

Inside, you’ll feel the Caribbean influences of the cool azure interior decor. Bright and fully tiled, the living room is large enough for the whole gang to gather and discuss the day’s adventures. The overstuffed sofa and chairs will cradle your theme-park weary bones.

The Master Bedroom has its own view and access to the pool. Watch the water or the television from the comfort of the queen size bed. The generous master bathroom offers a large walk in closet and a bright airy dressing area. The 2nd bedroom has two twin beds and easy access to a bathroom and the pool.

The fully equipped kitchen has its own breakfast table with a view of the neighborhood. The Dining room table is ready for the chef’s pride or a call to the local pizza parlor. When you want the options of both adventure and relaxation, Beauty’s Rest is the best!

About Russell and Jackie Herder

Russ and Jackie were both in the travel business. Russ was in shipping and Jackie worked for the airlines. We had done a lot of travelling and knew what we wanted. A place to get away and relax. We loved the Disney area and when we found this house it was perfect in all aspects to what we believed we wanted and for others. We wanted a south facing pool where there was a lot of sun throughout the day and a private back yard that did not back onto another house. A safe neighborhood where I could go running, walking or biking. A house that was split design so when we invited friends down or family the bedrooms would be on either side of the house. A bathroom that has a door onto the pool for obvious reasons. A shaded area as I can only take so much sun. Also I wanted to see water spills on the pool and palm trees to look at in the back yard. We also wanted to make sure the property was clean and kept up - we bought it brand new. The house has had furniture and pool up dated and there is always up keep in painting. We got rid of the carpet and love the tiled floor through out which is great for people with sensitivities. We still love the place and hope you will as well.

Why Russell and Jackie Herder chose Disney / Orlando

We chose this property due to its close proximity to Disney World (5 miles). The property is in a cul-de-sac away from traffic. The house is a large two bedroom open concept design with lots of natural light. The private backyard and not having houses behind us was important. And most of all having southern exposure and the sun on the pool throughout the day.

What makes this house unique

SOUTH FACING POOL! From morning to late afternoon you have the sun. Nothing is worse than having a pool and you are in the shade for most of the day. NO REAR NEIGHBOURS. Compare with other homes that have houses and pools right behind them. Privacy and less noise. The view from our fenced in back yard is natural vegetation (hear the birds) and our own palm trees.

We maintain our home. Continually updating furniture and appliances. New wall mounted Smart TV in master bedroom, new refrigerator, pool resurfaced and tiled, pool deck repainted, complete new Air Conditioning system to ensure you are always comfortable, even a newly reshingled roof so you are safe and secure in all weather. We are the original owners and have kept it because we love the location and the home.

Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

Russel and Jackie were very nice and made my first home away rental experience a great choice. The home was in a perfect location. Away from all of the Orlando's busy traffic. They had everything you needed for the pool, a great informational binder about your stay, and the maintenance team were very friendly. The only thing was the alarm on the screen doors was a bit confusing. Overall we had a great time and would definitely rent the home in future visits.

Absolutely perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

The house and location was absolutely perfect for my family of 5! Only 10-20 minutes from Disney, 30 minutes to natural springs, and an hour to the beach! We look forward to staying here again in the years to come!

Thanks Jackie and Russell for allowing us to stay at your property. We had a fabulous time during our recent stay at Disney and your property is a welcome place to come back to after long days out enjoying Disney, Universal or whatever activity you may choose. Thanks again!

Relaxed Home Getaway

  • 4 of 5

The house is a good place for a family of 4 to stay. All amenities of a home are available. The house was kept nice and clean. It helped us relax at the end of the day and early mornings before we made our way to the hustle and bustle of the parks. The private pool is really a joy, we spent each morning in the wonderful water. Most of all it was a pleasure to interact with the owners, they were very helpful and made us feel welcome.

Disney is the closest park, with Universal a 30 minute drive away. Overall we had a very good time at the house.
