Overview
Villa -
4 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 10
Kissimmee, Florida
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!

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 sto...

Good house in a good location. Very well equipped and comfortable. Private and quiet villa. Extremely helpful and responsive owner . Saw squirrels, raccoons, eagles and alligator in the lake as well as different sorts of birds. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Andrew and Family, We are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay and enjoyed the wildlife as much as we do when we are there.

The villa is very large and the pool and view is great. Stayed with my wife and 2 young children. The kids loved the pool as did I and they also like the use of the free WIFI. We went to Florida to enjoy going to Disney and Universal studio's all parks are within 10 mins drive from the villa...

The communication with the owners was excellent. They responded promptly to our initial enquiry and provided the required information to ensure a stress free holiday. They refunded our deposit very quickly after our return. The villa was clean, comfortable and had all the necessary equipment. The pool area overlooked the small lake and it didn't feel overlooked by nearby villas....

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, Wal-Mart 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 wa...

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..
