Overview

Kissimmee House Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4 Baths (Sleeps 11-14)

See the Fireworks From Your Own Backyard, 2.5 Miles to Disney.

Mickeys Magical Vacation Home is nestled in the popular Indian Creek community, less than 2.5 miles from Disney's doorstep in Kissimmee, Florida and is perfectly placed for the shops, restaurants, fun and attractions that Orlando has to offer. With 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, this fully air-conditioned, family friendly vacation home is perfect for extended families, friends traveling together or for those that just need a little extra room, sleeping up to 14 people (even more if there are babies!). Mickeys Magical Vacation Home has a spacious vaulted family room to relax in during the day or evening, with a luxurious leather queen size sleeper sofa, two more big comfy couches, cable 55" TV, VCR, stereo and DVD player to enjoy your favorite movie or listen to your favorite music.

There is even more fun and entertainment in the newly refurbished (2015) AIR CONDITIONED GAMES ROOM. With an Ohlhausen pool table, Foosball, high speed internet WiFi, cable television, and blue tooth enabled sound system to play your own tunes, you won't want to leave!

Step out from the family room under the shaded lanai, and sit and eat al-fresco on the cushioned recliners, watching the sun rise as you enjoy your breakfast. Step on to the huge sun-baked screen enclosed pool deck, and dip in to the cooling and sparkling waters of your own private pool and separate bubbling spa pool (or hot tub with optional pool heating)! Kids will adore the Mickey Mouse pool - Mickey's ears are the spa pool and an 18' wading pool! When you want to really soak in the sunshine, laze out on one of the sun-loungers and take in all that Florida sunshine as you listen to the pool-side stereo system. New for 2015, we have replaced all of the patio chairs for your comfort and enjoyment. When you are done in the pool, additional doors off the deck lead directly to the master ensuites. For extra added protection for young children should you need it, all doors leading on to the deck area have been provided with additional safety locks and switchable alarms.

At night, the pool really comes alive, with fiber optic lighting magically changing the color of your pool! And your pool is a great place to view the Disney fireworks! You do not even have any neighbors behind you. Your home is furnished with all that you need for children, with 2 strollers, 2 pack n play cribs, 2 high chairs, 2 booster seats, and a baby monitor, along with toys and movies. The luxurious kitchen has been equipped with granite counter tops (2015 and bathroom counters granite as well) and everything that you could need to provide a family feast to enjoy together either at the dining area off the main family room, or at the breakfast nook or out by the pool. Luxurious sleeping accommodation awaits you when you stay at Mickeys Magical Vacation home. with 2 King Beds, 2 Queen Beds, and a single over double bunk bed. There is even a roll away and a queen sleeper sofa, for when your group needs a few extra spots to lay their heads!

We are a family of 6 originally from Alberta, Canada, but now living in Celebration, Florida, the town that Disney built!

Why Darren Keast chose Kissimmee

A fantastic location, close to all the fun that Central Florida has to offer and Mickey Mouse pool with something for everyone, from an 18" wading pool for the little ones to a hot tub for the adults to enjoy and a regular pool for everyone to play in!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Our family enjoyed our vacation at Mickey's Magical Villa so much. The descripion of the house was accurate and the owners were very nice. We ran into a minor issue and the owners responded without delay to assist in making our vacation an enjoyable experience. The mickey pool and game room were our highlights of the home. We would definitely recommend this home to others. Its located conveniently by eating and shopping. Great property!

It was a very pleasant home. It had everything we needed for the week and was very well maintained.

They are correct in saying you can see Epcot 's fireworks. It was well set up and I felt very safe in the house and neighborhood. We did have one issue which was quickly resolved. Would stay again.

Excellent family retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 10 (with 2 small babies) just checked out this morning and loved the place. It felt like home with lots of amenities not even listed. Very clean inside and out. We indeed watched the Magic Kingdom fireworks from the screened in lanai/pool area. Our grown boys loved the game room with full size pool table and foos ball. They played into the night and didn't disturb the rest of the us sleeping, due to the placement of the nice den/garage. The owner went above and beyond in getting an item that was listed in the amenities for babies but missing when we checked in. Very impressed with the prompt responses of the owner and the property. We had absolutely no issues and will keep this rental in our favorites to return in the future.

LOVED THIS PROPERTY

  • 5 of 5

I can't believe some of the other reviews I've read. My family, friends, and I stayed at this rental home this past weekend, and it was wonderful. We didn't use the pool, because we weren't at the house during most of the day. We didn't have any issues with cleanliness. We didn't have any issues at all. The owners maintained contact with us the days leading up to our stay, and we had nothing but compliments about the property. We had a group of 11, including kids, and everyone had a great time. The kids room alone kept my 3 year old entertained. We loved it. We will definitely be renting from them again in the future.

Thanksgiving In disney

  • 4 of 5

The house is a prefect size for families. After a couple little problems that were taken care of right away we had a wonderful stay. I would recommend this house to anyone with kids. Lots is space and things to do. My 21/2 year old granddaughter even love the game room the only suggestions I have is I would have better silverware more of it, nicer plates and a new dishwasher. Other wise it was great.

Disappointed and dirty

  • 1 of 5

Upon arrival the home was 88 degrees...HOT!

Spiders, cockroaches in cabinet and dishwasher. Floors,showers and pool DIRTY!

Pool had many lights burnt out. Have stayed at this home previously under different ownership and the pool now looks nothing close to the picture that is used to advertise this property. The pool/game room is not air conditioned so is very hot and humid and uncomfortable to use. Sent 3 e-mails to owner ...did not get a response until the day we left. My family and I continued to make the best of our vacation by ignoring the conditions of the home as we made sure we were gone from the home most of our stay. Once I received a response from the home owner he was rude, defensive, and very unprofessional. I suggested he take a walk thru this home in order to see it is not being maintained very well by his help, he then assured me he does check his property often.

So what I am taking from that being said is he has very little knowledge of what his guest wants or needs truly are. Because I would not go thru and list in detail what all the problems were at this property (which would be taking up my time ....very long list) the owner decided to call my family and myself BLATANT LIARS.

Very unprofessional! Please ask questions before renting this vacation home.

Owner's Response: I was disappointed to read this review of our home. It is sad that guests like this can ruin it for others by being dishonest. This guest contacted us (by email) for the first time at 10 pm on the last night of their stay. We provide multiple phone numbers as well as our email address for guests to contact us with their concerns and this guest chose to wait until 6 hours before their departure to make their concerns known. Their initial email to us said that the house was hot when they arrived (88 degrees) and remained hot during their stay. They said that half of the pool lights were out. They also said that there were spiders everywhere in the house and cockroaches in the cabinets. They said that the pool was dirty and had been dirty throughout their stay. Finally, they said that the house was filthy inside and out. My initial response was to apologize that our home had not been up to their standard and advise that if they had contacted us at the beginning of their stay, I would have been happy to assist them with their concerns. I explained that our home had been professionally treated for pests the week before they arrived. I requested additional information from them in regard to the what they found filthy, what part of the pool was dirty and where they saw spiders (whether it was in every room or just specific rooms). I needed this information in order to deal with our cleaners, pool staff and pest control company. I also explained that we monitor the thermostat remotely and that the house was 85 degrees when they arrived. They turned the thermostat down to 72 and the temp went down to 72 degrees the evening of their arrival and remained at 72 or 73 degrees throughout their stay. The Coopers response was that I was being ridiculous and that all I cared about was money. They would not provide any additional information to allow me to assess the validity of their claims or to speak to the various professionals about improvements that needed to be made. I also went out the day after their departure (both during the day and at night) and checked on their claims. I found that all pool lights were in working order. The pool was completely clean. I did not find any pests in the house, however, I also had my cleaners check and they did find two spiders in one bathroom and two more outside on the lanai, but no cockroaches anywhere. We dealt with these spiders immediately. In short, we could find no basis for the Coopers' complaints.
