If its action you want then Disney is just 12 minutes drive 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 and TVs in all rooms. 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 to 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 ( Mid-Oct to mid-Mar) 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 propane 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 fueled) 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

Home away from home
We enjoyed our 3rd stay in this comfortable, clean, and well maintained Florida villa. We want to thank Brian and Linda and the management company they have chosen for their prompt responses and attentiveness to make certain we had a pleasant and relaxing winter stay. We look forward to a return visit.

Good sized villa
Enjoyed the villa really quiet area, plenty of space for the 6 of us (5 Adults and 1 child) & good sized pool, the Wi-Fi & washer & dryer came in really handy, quick email response from owners when it was required, Walmart was only 5 mins down the road & both Disney & universal was about 25 mins drive away, would not hesitate to stay here again when we return to Orlando.

Loved it , Loved it , Loved it.
This is our second stay here and wont be our last. We thought we had found a Gem last time and we weren't wrong. The location is perfect. just 10 minutes from Disney and 20ish from Universal. Situated close to the US192 its easy to get anywhere. Within a 2 mile radius there is a huge Walmart, Aldi and various food outlets. The villa itself has everything. Four bedrooms, 3 of which dont have single beds but huge doubles. The lounge has a huge TV with plenty of channel choice, ideal for when you have walked all day and just want a night or two relaxing. The kitchen has everything you need including huge fridge, dishwasher etc. There is even a pc so you can check your emails and check in for flights home. Best of all for us is the pool. We used this almost everyday. after 20000 steps at the parks it was great to get back and jump in. Whilst in there you can also play spot the wildlife in the creek behind the villa. We were visited by plenty of animals bit least a beautiful american eagle and if your lucky the alligator that lives there too. Nighttime the villa is sooo quiet, as the neighbourhood is a mixture of rentals and tennants all very friendly. I could go on all day but to sum up, the perfect location, the perfect property and we had the perfect holiday. So much thanks to Brian and Linda who own the property.

Florida Holiday - Amazing
We stayed at this amazing villa for a month long stay as a family of 4. Each of my boys had a good size double bed and the twin room whilst not used was spacious. We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay, it was well overdue following the trip being delayed a number of times over the years due to covid. The villa is in a great private location, a quiet development overlooking a lovely lake with plenty of wildlife to spot from the pool ( local raccoon, alligators, birds and lizards etc). The pool gets the sun most of the day and was nice to relax in morning or evening. It was not overlooked and felt quite private. The parks are 15-30 mins away dependant on traffic and local shops and amenities near by. The villa itself is more spacious than we thought and pictures do no do it justice. I will definitely re book this villa for future holidays to Florida. Throughout my dealings the owners were understanding and extremely thorough offering advice and assistance where needed nothing seemed to be a problem.

Fantastic Floridian Home
We have had the pleasure of staying in this wonderful home for three weeks. It has everything you would need to aid your stay. Communication with Brian and Linda was excellent throughout. We have been travelling to Florida for some years now and Its our second time staying in this lovely neighbourhood. We love the location, it’s quiet and has fabulous views of local wildlife including a few small gators. The tv had plenty of channels my boys had no issue finding things to watch in an evening, internet was great. I wouldn’t hesitate recommending here at all.

Home away from home.
We have stayed at the villa several times over the last few years & we can safely say that it is a home away from home for us. We absolutely love staying here as we know that it will always be clean & tidy on arrival & is always well maintained. All my exchanges with Brian have been smooth & polite & we could not wish for a better service, he kept us up to date with any issues or maintenance being done whilst we were there (as there had been an issue with the internet a few days before we arrived), but everything was perfect when we got there. We love the location, with Walmart up the road & it’s only about a 20-25min car ride to Disney, World & Celebration & with Shingle creek park down the road, there is so much to do if you wanted a break from Disney. There is so much wild life around the villa as well, we saw squirrels, lots of different birds & some birds of prey - they do come fairly close!! So many bats are around in the evening also. We were a little upset to see the local big alligator was no longer there, but we soon found it had been replaced by a smaller one maybe one it’s babies from 2019, as it was only about 2-3 foot long. The area is clean & nice with friendly & helpful neighbours & it’s so peaceful & relaxing away from all the hustle & bustle. Honestly, couldn’t ask for a better location. We can’t wait to visit again, hopefully the next time we visit, we’ll be able to stay longer.

Sarah, Thank you for you kind words. We are so pleased that you continue to enjoy the many pleasures of a stay at the villa despite the possibility that your favourite gator has gone on vacation away from the area and left the offspring behind to entertain interested residents. We love to have guests like you stay in the villa as it make our efforts worth while and reinforces our belief that we made a great choice for the location of our vacation home that all can appreciate. One that suits a spectrum of vacation needs that can be enjoyed in so many ways. We look forward to having you stay again.

Home away from home
We enjoyed our 2nd stay in this comfortable well maintained & conveniently located villa. Email communication with Brian & Linda (owners) and the local home management company was easy and responses were received and acted on promptly. We found the kitchen supplied with new dishes, cookware, bakeware & small appliances. New bedroom carpeting was installed since our last visit. The garage offered ample room to park the car out of the Florida heat. The view while either relaxing on the lanai or enjoying the nicely heated pool offered us a water view to observe herons, cranes, egrets, anhingas, wild turkeys and much more wildlife. We loved the convenience of NOT having to drive on Interstate 4 to get to the Disney Parks. This villa was located next to the Shingle Creek Nature Preserve where hiking and a kayaking adventure were enjoyed. We want to thank Brian & Linda for creating such a hospitable home away from home. We are looking forward to a return trip.

Thank you Chuck and JoAnn for your kind words and we are pleased that you enjoyed your long stay. It is gratifying to know that you appreciated the changes that we had made since your previous visit earlier in the year. We had not been able to visit the villa for 2 years due to illness and then Covid travel restrictions and so it is very pleasing to know that the villa is now back to its best. We appreciate great guests who work with us, making our work much easier and their stay enjoyable and so we look forward to welcoming you again next year.

The house has potential
Great location, quiet area. Pool was great, bedrooms were nice. Bedrooms were clean, living room and kitchen not so much. They could use a deep cleaning inside out. Garage was a disaster with tons of things just thrown all over the place. A lot of broken items, blender, toaster, coffee maker, both shower handles, yard furniture. The management company is definitely not doing what they are being paid for, as I see in the last review in July items brought to attention were still not fixed/replaced.

Thank you for your comments and we accept them as genuine and accurate. This is our first poor review. Other reviews over several years show that this one is an outlier plus our rebate on the rental shows that we were as concerned as you were that the villa was not to the standard we both expect. We had been unable to visit the villa ourselves for considerable time due to Covid travel restrictions and prior to that serious injury. So, we have relied on guest and management feedback/action to keep standards up. Unfortunately, our long term managers returned home overseas earlier in the year as soon as Covid restrictions allowed and handed management over to an associate who subsequently retired just before you arrived, leaving us to find new management at short notice. Clearly, the associate was not doing the job well from the observations you made. Our new managers took over the week of your arrival and did not have enough time or information to identify/rectify all the problems you noted. Our new manager offered to do this whilst you were there but you declined. We have now been able to visit the villa ourselves ( in Nov 21) and met the new managers who have over 15 years experience and who were personally recommended by Floridian friends. They quickly addressed all the issues you raised - broken items, deep clean etc - when you departed. We owners have since spent many weeks at the villa upgrading and repairing to the standards we have aspired to in the past. We are pleased that you recognise the potential that always was there and that past guests have enjoyed and we believe that the investments and management changes we have recently made has released this potential once again.

Great Location
We stayed from Saturday to Saturday. Overall the house was good. Pros: Clean, spacious, close to Disney Parks, close to stores, very quite place, easy access, comfortable furnitures, Cons: master bedroom was hot, internet service went down mostly at night time like it has a timer at night, and odd times during day time only for few minutes, the pool only the first day when we arrived pool was with cloudy water and water very hot all the time, we think the heater was on. Cable TV, we had two afternoons that we had no signal. The house has two blenders both not working. No raw meat knife, we had to buy our own for cooking. We wanted to use the garage to place our car, it has many objects we could not use it.

We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay and thank you for your very useful feedback. With this information we will now ask the management company to check those items you raised and replace broken/missing items. The WiFi comes via the cable feed and router and so if this becomes a problem we will ask the cable company to investigate. If it was just the master bedroom that was hot then I suspect that a previous guest had closed an air vent as some people do not like cold air blowing over them when they sleep. Although the AC has programmed settings, you have the ability to turn this down to your preferred sleeping temperature at the wall thermostat. The pool has solar heating and was possibly turned up by a guest when the pool was cooler earlier in the year. You can turn this down to prevent overheating in the height of summer.

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 want for something to do or somewhere to visit. However, when the frenetic and exhausting activities start to take their toll, you have your own quiet retreat to enjoy the quieter and more natural pleasures of Florida.
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 where there is a Walmart, Aldi 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..
Access
Car advised
How to get there
We send detailed driving directions together with other villa information when your final balance payment is made. The villa is approximately 30 mins drive from Orlando International airport.
