The location is perfect - so near to Disney and restaurants on the 192, and only 10 minutes to Celebration - one of our favourite places to each and stroll of an evening. - all without going on the I4!

About the owner: My husband Clive and myself Pat, were born and live in Sheffield, South Yorkshire United Kingdom.
We are retired from our retail business which we ran for over 30 years, and we are now concentrating on our Florida vacation homes in the Orlando area of the USA. We love to furnish and decorate our homes ourselves which ensures that they are of a high standard and kept that way, by choosing wonderful local management companies to provide an excellent service to our guests and ensure an efficient and high standard of service to our home. We now own 5 homes and we would love to welcome you at one of them for your dream vacation
Why this property? When we chose this, our 4th property, we were looking for something special. We believe we have found a wonderful place and we have enjoyed furnishing and decorating it to make our home a place for our guests to make special memories.
Apart from the home itself - which is spacious and allows for lots of privacy, the outside space and the awesome view of the Lake is outstanding. We even have orange trees in our garden! - and space outside to enable us to have a fenced outside play area, with dedicated Cook out and dining area. The large pool in its extended deck has a spa and also a separate kiddi pool - and palm trees inside the cage! The location is fabulous, so close to shops, restaurants - only a couple of minutes away and of course Disney - 5 minutes away to Animal Kingdom! Wow.

Guestbook comments from the owner:
This home was perfect for our needs. My husband and I, along with our son, his wife, and two daughters ages 2 & 6 could have never left the property if we didn't have tickets to the parks. The home was spacious, clean, well equipped kitchen, comfortable beds, excellent lighting, fabulous gated community, and only minutes from Disney attractions. Honestly could not find fault with this listing. One of the features we were thankful for was the alarm system between the house and the pool within the lanai. If any of the doors leading to the pool opened without first pressing the alarm button for exiting and entering an alarm would sound alerting the family. With two small children obsessed with swimming in a pool it was peace of mind for our whole family. The needs of their guests are truly in the forefront of the owners. Every need is anticipated and items are readily available without filling the space with personal items. The listing is comfortable and inviting. It is saved to our favorites if we return to the area. Thank you!

This was a WONDERFUL place to stay. We came down to look around for retirement and for a Birthday get away and so happy we found this beautiful home that also allowed dogs. 3 bedrooms down all with baths - 3 bedrooms upstairs - game room and gorgeous screened in pool deck with lake view, hot tub, huge pool and even smaller pool for kids. Great fenced in side yard for puppies. Our 2 schnauzers loved the fenced in yard and being able to bark at the ducks and lizards. Pat has thought of everything to have in this house - glass plates, plastic plates, multiple silverware and glasses. Really this is the perfect place to stay and so beautiful. Love that it is in a gated community and you feel safe to walk dogs. Close to all theme parks, turnpike and interstate. I could go on and on as the pictures really do not even do the house justice. Just know from a very picky person this house was up to every standard. Overall A++++++ stay. Thank you Pat for a wonderful little Birthday getaway !!!!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the house. The house was very spacious and had everything available that we could think of. The house is very kid fun and friendly. The lake view was beautiful and peaceful in the morning and could even see some cute wildlife from bunnies to ducks which the little ones enjoyed. Pat was great at communicating all the details of the house and in the booking process. Due to Covid we didn't go out much of the house, but it was a short drive to Disney parks and there were many restaurants also nearby. Look forward to visit again in the future.
We had a great time hanging out in the pool & also in the game room. The kitchen was stocked with everything you might need!

We were very happy with this home. Very clean and well kept. The pool was beautiful, especially at sunset. The parks were only a short drive away. The best part was we could bring our beautiful boy Sawyer (black lab rescue) with us! Shawn, Tina & Sawyer
