Why choose our Villa.
Your vacation is specials so why stay in a small cramped hotel room with limited facilities when for a few dollars more you can have a luxury home from home with excellent facilities.
Check out the reviews of our property and you will see countless satisfied customers. We aim to provide prompt and friendly contact to your inquiries and to help make the decision on your dream vacation as easy as possible. Our service is second to none and you wont be disappointed.
We have owned our rental home for over 12 years and previously listed with a major rental platform with almost 90, four or five star reviews. Sadly that platform was charging renters a significant service fee and effectively controlling how I could communicate with my renters and all payment transactions increasing the cost to both renters and me as an owner. I aim to provide exceptional customer satisfaction and strive to deal with all communications in a prompt and efficient manner.
Check out my listing on VRBO listing 260250 to see past reviews however please use this platform to book.
Why Kids Love It
Hey Disney is just around the corner. A short 5-10 minutes drive so whats not to like for the kids. Universal is slightly further afield however a short drive away we have Margaritaville Resort Orlando next to Rolling Oaks Commons Plaza.

Guestbook comments from the owner:
Had a great Christmas holiday in Orlando staying at this nice and cozy place!
An awesome find!
We really enjoyed our stay here. The neighborhood has tons of amenities and the home is spacious and welcoming. We especially loved the screened in porch. Location can’t be beat. Close to Disney and to some great restaurants and shopping.
Thank you so much for allowing us to book your home July 7-10, 2020. We did not feel comfortable staying in a hotel with Covid cases increasing, and needed a safe place to say while house hunting with my 83 year old mother. The home is located in the cutest neighborhood, with a 24-hour guarded gate. It was clean and had all of the space we needed for our stay. We loved having our own driveway. LOTS of placs to pick up takeaway food to bring "home." Andrew provided us with all of the information we needed to check in easily, and Dianne, his housekeeper who lives in the neighborhood, actually called me while we were driving down to offer more instructions. Getting through the gate was no trouble, and we drove straight to the clubhouse to get a gate card to use for the remainder of our stay. Neighbors were friendly, and we really felt like we were home when we would return each day after looking at neighborhoods. We would not hesitate to book this cute villa again!

Hi Juanita. Many Thanks for posting a review of your recent stay. Im grateful for your valued custom and so pleased you and your party had a great stay. I would love to welcome you back in 2022 however due to Covid and the ongoing travel restrictions were having to seriously consider selling
Perfect place to stay for Orlando vacation!
We stayed here twice in 2020, as we did not feel comfortable staying in a hotel due to Covid! We LOVED the accommodations as well as the clear communication from the owner, Andrew. The villa has everything you need to feel at home, lots of space for our family, and the community is so cute! The proximity to Disney, as well as restaurants and shopping cannot be beat. We will be back very soon, as we now consider this villa our home away from home!

Many Thanks for posting a review of your recent stay. Im pleased you had an enjoyable stay and appreciate your valued custom.
Our home away from home.
We are a retired Canadian, who have enjoyed this home away from home, for many years, as Snowbirds, from Jan.. to April. The house is so nice. We love sitting out in the Lanai (Sunroom) and enjoying the warm sunny weather. The community of Vista del Lago has great amenities, and is a great neighbourhood. We have met many great friends here. We had to cancel our time, this year 2021 due to Covid, as our Canadian Borders were closed to driving, as we drive from Ontario, Canada, but, we sure hope this is all over, so we will be able to go down for January 2022. Summing this all up, this house is a wonderful "home away from home", with a great location, close to Disney, close to lots of shopping and restaurants. Thank you Andrew for having us as renters, for many years..... Friends, Bruce and Gerry McMahon
