Location, Location, Location!!! The attractive combination of tranquil Florida nature and proximity to the Orlando action makes this villa a perfect base for a quiet rest or for hectic trips round the attractions. Or why not have the best of both worlds! It's hard to beat this location for your stay in Orlando. If its tranquility you want then from the 32ft heated pool you can enjoy expansive views of the lake and forest in a semi-rural setting and watch the wildlife as you relax in the warm water. If its action you want then Disney is just 12 minutes it away - you can't get much closer than that without paying Disney's prices!

The attractive combination of tranquil Florida nature and proximity to the Orlando action makes this villa a perfect base for a quiet rest or for hectic trips round the attractions. Or why not have the best of both worlds! It's hard to beat this location for your stay in Orlando. If its tranquility you want then from the 32ft heated pool you can enjoy expansive views of the lake and forest in a semi-rural setting and watch the wildlife as you relax in the warm water. If its action you want then Disney is just 12 minutes it away - you can't get much closer than that without paying Disney's prices! For shopping and restaurants you are just 3/4 mile from US192 - the main artery of the Kissimmee resort area with its numerous attractions, malls, shops, and restaurants. The giant 24x7 Walmart store is just a 2-minute drive away or a leisurely 15min stroll along quiet Bass Road. If you prefer shopping at Aldi then there is a an excellent Aldi store across the road from Walmart. If it is nature/wildlife you want then the lake is bounded by the Shingle Creek nature preserve so you can enjoy Floridian wildlife up close from your own home. Watch the turkeys, owls, heron, cranes, anhingas, egrets, cranes, deer, racoons, turtles, otters, the occasional gator (don't worry they are small, more scared of you and there is a fence between you and the water and they cannot jump), deer and much more as you lie in your bed or as you lounge by the heated pool. Whilst we cannot guarantee you will see these, they are all there - we have seen them ourselves. So bring your cameras and binoculars, you never know what you might see! Shingle Creek is commonly recognised as the 'Headwaters of the Everglades' and you can rent a canoe just 3/4 mile north of the villa and paddle your own way through this tranquil, unspoiled Florida wilderness. You can also walk the trails or fish the creek waters. We can also advise on other Florida wildlife 'gems' that we have discovered over the years. With 2100 sq ft of living space, 4 bedrooms, 2 lounges, separate dining room, large kitchen with breakfast nook and bar, 2 large bathrooms and a separate utility room, the villa is large enough to accommodate 2 families or 1 large family but priced so that even a couple can enjoy a stay. In fact, many of our returning clients are couples who enjoy a stay in the quieter seasons. The house cable bundle comes with unlimited free calls to Mainland USA, CANADA and Puerto Rico, 100+Mb broadband, Wi-Fi, 300+ digital channels, smart DVR (Digital Video Recorder) to record programmes whilst you are out and TVs in all rooms. With the DVR you can still enjoy your family days out then watch missed films or those crucial matches when everyone is relaxing at home. The pool is constantly heated using solar heating panels on the roof which means that it will be very comfortable for most of the year at no cost, and additional electric heating is available for the cooler winter months as a chargeable option (please ask when booking or it can be ordered later). The solar heaters will maintain temperatures in excess of 84F for most of the year (Mar-Oct incl.) Unheated pools can feel chilly, even in Florida, when the water temperature is less than about 84F. Unheated screened pools may never reach 84F even in a Florida summer as the pool screen enclosures can inhibit natural heating by the sun. We advise the use of the electric pool heating (optional extra) in the winter ( Nov-Feb) if you wish to ensure comfortable bathing as the low sun elevations and cooler weather may not be sufficient for the solar heaters to maintain a 84F pool. Compare our prices like-for-like. Our prices are fully inclusive of items such as state and local taxes, house safe, child crib/high chair (if required), solar pool heating etc. There is also a propane BBQ ( free of charge) but please note that our management company does not provide a service to clean or provide fuel for the BBQ. Therefore, it is the responsibility of guests to clean it and leave it as they would wish to find it and to purchase an exchange proane cylinder as necessary So, we cannot guarantee how previous guests will leave it but we can provide details of companies that will rent fully-serviced(cleaned and fuelled) BBQs if you wish (Their rental charge is not included in our rates. ). The only optional charge that we have is for auxiliary electric pool heating in the winter, if required (please ask when booking). More

About the neighborhood
Located in the quiet neighborhood of Country Creek Estates the villa is just minutes from the US192 with its numerous restaurants and shops but set in a semi-rural location next to the Shingle Creek regional and conservation park. Google it for more details. Fishing, canoeing, hiking, walking. With a double garage and drive the villa has plenty of off street parking. Whilst we would recommend visitors have their own transport for this type of vacation, it is close enough(3/4 mile) to the US192, WalMart and the main bus routes that provide a frequent service to the surrounding area - including Disney and the other parks, to make it a practical base for non-drivers. With Orlando’s world-leading vacation facilities and amenities, all within a short drive of the villa, you will never wan...
Getting around
We would recommend a car for this type of vacation in Florida. However, the villa is within 15 min walking distance to US192 and many bus routes frequent this major road. So, it is possible to use only the public transport in the area. We have had non-driving guests who have successfully done this in the past and enjoyed there stay..
