Welcome to our wonderful lakeside villa in the beautiful community of Country Creek Estates – whether you are hitting the theme parks or looking to chill out and relax, our home is perfectly situated for you. And don't just take our word for that - if you read our reviews you'll see our guests think the same! (Don’t worry if our latest one was written a while ago, it’s not because of unhappy guests, it’ll just be that we’ve had one or more of our many returning guests staying who were kind enough to leave us a review after their first stay and now show their satisfaction by coming back year after year!)
Our home overlooks a lake to the rear - so while you’re relaxing around your very own pool you’ll have a fabulous view of the water, fountain and wildlife instead of looking at a fence or directly into the neighbour’s yard!
As well as for Disney, people come to Florida for the year round sunshine and our southwest facing extended pool deck can give you plenty of that! The whole family can enjoy some fun time together in the fresh air, chilling out on a sun lounger or splashing about in the pool - which you can even use on an evening when it takes on a different look with our colour-changing pool light! We also have a pool table and air hockey game to keep the fun going on those rare cooler and rainy days.
Our pool deck gets the sun all day - a very important factor if you are staying in the cooler Winter months - but shade-lovers also have their cool haven under our lanai. We just love having brunch out here while watching the ducks and sitting with a relaxing drink on an evening with our feet up (or in the pool!) after a long day at the parks.
Complimentary wireless internet access is available (even on the pool deck!), just bring your laptop, tablet or phone and keep adding your photos to Facebook and Instagram! It’s also a great way to keep up-to-date with events in the parks and the local area, especially if you want to give your feet a break and find something relaxing to do!
We have stayed in far too many hotel rooms which are tiny and have uncomfortable modern furniture - and a view of the service area or a wall or roof! Because of this the aim of our home is to provide a comfortable, homely environment which is light and airy and where you will feel able to relax and enjoy your vacation to the full. So why stay in a cramped hotel room, when you can have a whole house and your own private pool for the same price? No more slamming doors late at night or noisy guests in the room next door to put up with either! We’d even go so far as to say it’s better than staying on site in a Disney resort (especially as they’re now charging guests for parking at their hotels!) - your car is parked directly outside the house free of charge, there’s no walking long distances across huge car parks with your heavy luggage and no walking to a bus stop then waiting for a Disney bus to take you to the entrance gate and even longer for one to take you back once the parks have closed!
Our welcoming and comfortable lounge/dining room is the perfect place to relax on an evening whilst watching a movie and has access to the pool deck through sliding doors. It has a large comfortable sofa, coffee table, a new 39" flat screen Smart LED TV with multiple cable channels - it's also preloaded with Netflix, VUDU and YouTube so you can log into those if you have an account - if not, there's also a dvd player. We have a dining table and chairs if you want more formal dining - or need somewhere to rest that giant pizza box which won’t fit on your knee!
The master bedroom has a luxurious pillow-top king size bed, phone and 32" flat screen TV, and an en-suite bathroom with his & hers basins, a big oval bath and separate walk-in shower unit. There is a large walk in closet with plenty of storage space, this is also where our baby equipment is stored (a highchair, baby monitors, pack & play and buggy/stroller). The bedroom overlooks the pool area so you can sit in bed with a morning coffee and still admire the lakeside view!
Bedroom 2 has a tropical theme with twin beds and sliding doors which lead onto the pool deck/lanai (children are safe as alarms are fitted and will sound if the door is opened). Also has a walk in closet and TV/DVD combi.
Bedroom 3 is our Mickey & Minnie Americana style room which is bright and sunny and also has twin beds and a large closet.
All bedrooms have new bedding - and new floors laid - in April 2018!
The family bathroom, with basin, toilet, and bath/shower combo, is close to bedrooms 2 & 3 and also has access to the pool area (door has pool alarm).
The kitchen is fully equipped with an oven/hob, microwave, dishwasher, refrigerator/freezer with crushed ice, ice cube and water dispenser, washing machine and tumble dryer. Our retro American diner style breakfast nook is the perfect place to grab a quick coffee and bite to eat before heading out for the day. You can also gain access to our hot rod themed garage from here, where you'll find our pool table and air hockey table, there's usually a box of pool toys and inflatables in there too.
For outdoor dining there is a table and chairs on the lanai/patio, and also a ceiling light and fan for warm summer evenings.
Please note - our home is rented on a ‘self-catering’ basis - we know that everyone has their favourite brands so we just we provide a small complimentary supply of basic items such as dishwasher tablets/pods, washer soap pouches, dish detergent and sponge, toilet paper and extra trash bags to get you started.
