Unique Benefits

We chose this home and location for its space, inside and out, the amazing pool and large pool area with fabulous views over the lake. The Sunsets are awesome! 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!

Why Kids Love It

Kids with love the game room, littles ones in particular can enjoy their own little kiddi pool adjacent to the big pool, and they can run around on the grass in our enclosed yard area.
Older kids will particularly like the Xbox in the Game room.
Everyone will enjoy the Margaritaville H2O waterpark only a 3 minute drive from our home - ask about an annual pass to cover all your stay, works out much cheaper than day passes.

Owner Info

Pat Richardson

Pat Richardson

Year Purchased: 2018

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 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 !!!!


Sep 2020

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.


Sep 2020

We had a great time hanging out in the pool & also in the game room. The kitchen was stocked with everything you might need!
