About the Property
Imagine coming home at the end of an exhilarating day at the theme parks...
You grab a refreshing drink from the fridge, flake out on the sofa in the outdoor living area right by the pool and reminisce about all the amazing things you did that day.
The kids are splashing around in the pool, you have your feet up. Totally relaxed.
Memories made, job completed!
Serendipity at Indian Creek offers all the comforts of home and then some. We call it laid back luxury - all the high quality amenities to make it special, but laid back so you feel comfortable enough to just kick back and relax.
We really do have everything you could think of to put on your wish-list, so let us show you how a vacation with us could be the perfect choice for you and your family...
❤️ Unbeatable Location ❤️
We're 4 miles to Disney so it's so effortless for you to take a quick trip home during the day for a cooling swim or lunch.
You can easily head back in the evening for the spectacular fireworks.
We have a terrific shortcut we can share with you that uses the Disney back roads - just two sets of lights and you're right there in the heart of the magic.
You'll find plenty of restaurants and stores within a few minutes of the house. We'll share some of our hidden gems with you too.
Universal Studios is just 20 minutes away and the rest of the endless attractions are all within easy reach.
Everything you need really is right on your door step.
❤️ Poolside Living Area ❤️
You'll be spending lots of time out by the pool. It's just the perfect place to make the most of that wonderful outdoor Florida lifestyle.
Kick back and relax on the rattan patio furniture or watch a movie by the pool on the 42 inch Smart HDTV. You'll find complimentary Netflix too and the TV is internet ready with 200mbps lightening speed.
There's a gas grill, so the guys can take care of dinner while the girls sink into the hot tub and let the soothing jets take away the aches of all that walking around the parks.
❤️ Private Pool & Hot Tub ❤️
The kids can squeal away in the pool while you just lay back and soak up the sunshine on the luxurious padded rattan sun loungers and recliners. Sink back and dream.
The whole backyard is surrounded by a whimsical themed fence so you have complete privacy and are not overlooked from any direction.
The pool and sun deck are caged with a fine mesh to keep the bugs out and let the sunshine and breeze in.
For the protection of the little ones there's a safety fence separating all access areas to the pool and, as an added precaution, all patio doors are alarmed. If you don't have children with you, you can turn them off.
❤️ You'll Love the Lighting at Night ❤️
You'll thoroughly enjoy relaxing out by the pool in the evenings, so we've added feature lighting to the whole backyard.
It gives you the perfect atmosphere to unwind and relax and share precious times. Sip a glass of wine while the kids are safely tucked up in bed sound asleep. Or happily playing in the game room.
The pool also has a great underwater lighting system too that gently changes color. Just perfect for your evening swim.
❤️ Let The Bubbles Work the Magic! ❤️
You'll sink back and relax and feel the heat as the bubbling jets take away all your aches of the day.
It's hard work having fun you know!
But you'll soon be rejuvenated and ready to do it all again the next day.
❤️ Spacious Living ❤️
We know vacations are all about spending precious time together.
Everyone loves to kick back together and the open plan living area has been created with your whole family in mind. There's a large three seat sofa, a reclining love seat, two rocking and reclining armchairs, a cozy corner unit and 2 ottomans. There's even 2 extra tiny rocking chairs for the kiddos.

Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: Hi there, we are Sarah & Ken Elder.
Who knew when we bought our first home in 2005 that it would lead us down the path of a new business venture?
We certainly had no idea, but we've now been welcoming guests to our beautiful Orlando vacation homes for over a decade and we love every minute.
Imagine having a job where you help plan exciting and amazing vacations and get to deal with happy guests all the time!
It doesn’t get much better!
We spent 28 years living on an idyllic Greek Island where we owned and ran our own restaurant in a busy coastal village. Time eventually caught up with us and we left our beautiful Greek Island with a lifetime of memories.
We now split our time between Florida and Ken's ancestral home in Scotland.
We spend half the year overlooking a beautiful Scottish Loch and the other half on Disney’s doorstep in Florida.
Who says you can’t have your Key Lime Pie and eat it too. And with Pixie Dust sprinkled on top :)
We have 3 vacation homes so we have something to suit couples and small families and larger groups or multi-generation families.
We have a firm commitment to provide wonderful relaxing and carefree vacations in beautiful homes.
We look forward to being part of your vacation memories.
Why this property? When we were looking to purchase a home, we had two main thoughts - there had to be a spacious living area where all the family could spend time together and it had to be as close to the Disney parks as possible to enable us to easily pop back home during the day.
As soon as we walked into Serendipity, we knew instantly it was 'The One' we had been searching for.
We found our piece of paradise and now have the magical theme parks just a stones throw away and also all the endless entertainment and recreational activities Orlando and central Florida has to offer.
Fabulous beaches are within an hour's drive, the Florida state parks are just beautiful. Shopping and dining are endless and of course we have the beautiful sunshine which is just the icing on the cake.

Guestbook comments from the owner:
Just WOW! That’s where I’ll start. The home was everything that was described online and more! My family and I had the best and most peaceful vacation we’ve had in a long time at this home. The owners AND property managers were super friendly and responsive. When my family visits the area again we will certainly be rebooking this exact place!

We just came back from a family trip. We were 12, and let me tell you that we did not bumped into each other at all. The house is so spacious that everybody had their opportunity to rest without being disturbed. The pool and hot tub are great, specially after a day in the parks. We have asked to have them heated up and that was a good call. The kids (and adults) loved the game room.. pool table, air hockey... they have everything that you want...The quality of the bed linen and towels is great (we come from a Hotel background, and we have noticed the quality the moment that you see it). Location??? close to everything. You have a supermarket 5 minutes from the house, and you are 15 minutes from Disney. Definitely is a great house for you to stay and we look forward to come back!

Everything about this property was absolutely perfect for our family vacation! The house was very clean, organized, had everything you could possibly need and even beautifully decorated for the holidays!! The owner was super responsive to all our questions. The pool and hot tub were fantastic. The neighborhood was great for walking the dog. We had an amazing time! Thanks for everything!!!

We loved this home because of the amazing things there were to do in the home, the large layout for our family, and the fantastic communication with the owners. We did not want to leave. We enjoyed swimming in the pool, the many kids books, the fuzbol, the pool table, the air hockey, the six huge tvs, and we adored the thoughtful theming for kids. There were plenty of beautiful bedrooms and bathrooms for the whole family, as well as an open, kitchen, dining, family room space. In addition to the great space, the owners went to great lengths to make us feel like welcomed, special guests. Highly recommend!
Our experience staying in this home was amazing. 5 Star in every way, from personal greetings as you enter, clean, stocked with any and everything you may have forgotten, friendly host. I could go on and on about this home.
Perfect Location For All Attractions
Wonderful time from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. House was spotlessly clean in a brilliant location and the host couldn't do enough for us. Would highly recommend and will definitely be using again.
