Huset var toppen väl utrustat och planeringen av sovrum o bra med många toaletter området kändes tryggt
The house is a good option to stay. It has a full space in every room and all the supplies are so good. It is really close to Disney Parks and also to the malls If we return to Disney we are so glad to stay again in this house
My family of four, my sisters family of four, and our parents all enjoyed the Christmas holiday at Herons Flight. The house was clean, as described and close to all the Disney attractions. We had to deal with LOTS of noise our first two days due to a new roof being put on, which wasn't ideal, but it did not seem as though there was much we could do about it unfortunately. There was PLENTY of room in the house for all 10 of us. We never felt as though we were on top of each other. We didn't even use one of the bedrooms, and nobody slept on a pullout bed. It was great to have enough space for everyone. Everything in the game room worked well and was enjoyed by the kiddos (aged 12-18) daily. The pool was clean and used daily. The heat was a must since it was a chilly week. We paid extra for use of the grill. It was very large and well taken care of. We really appreciated the kitchen being stocked with serving dishes, plenty of cookware and nice tableware. I would definitely recommend this house to family and friends.
The owners were very helpful and friendly from the start. We enjoyed the home which had enough of everything for the seven of us. We enjoyed the pool, outdoor grill, garden tub and the playroom for the kids. The proximity to the Disney parks, restaurants, and shopping was excellent and the owners even showed us a few short cuts to save time. The home was beautifully decorated with everything we needed, and the pool was awesome to have. There was lots of room to relax. We will never go back to condos or hotels after being able to stay together in this home. We plan to stay here for our future trips to Disneyworld.
What a wonderful time in a lovely, perfect home! We enjoyed every bit of our week in this beautiful home, with every item needed and very well appointed. The decor was perfect with the wine and Disney - even though the youngest in our party was 18! I would highly recommend this beautiful home and we plan on coming again! Thank you Diane and Bob!
Very nice house. Well appointed and well located. Diane and Bob were very helpful and considerate with regards this booking. Would be very happy to stay here again.
It was nice ,clean close to universal ,Disney close to stores
House was perfect for what we needed. More than anything, the selling point was how responsive and proactive Diane was to ensure her house was everything we needed it to be.
All I can say is WOW. This was the best Disney vacation we ever had. We had stayed on property when our kids were small but I got the idea from my daughter and son-in-law who rent houses rather than staying in a hotel. I contacted Bob well over a year to a year and a half ago. What an awesome man! I did not know the dates as my daughter did not have her own school schedule so I thought I knew, booked, changed my mind about the dates and canceled and rebooked. Bob was awesome and so understanding. Let me say I hate staying in hotels. I don't like the smell, I don't like the atmosphere and I don't like the maid service that comes in and cleans. It literally makes me sick to my stomach when I go into a shower in a hotel. Long story short, we arrived to this amazing home, AMAZING. All in all we had 7 of us staying in the home. Yes we could have chosen something smaller but what caught my eye is the fact that they updated, renovated and were extremely nice and the fact they had 5 stars. Can I tell you what also made me feel wonderful, the towels in the house, YES the towels. I HATE the white towels in the hotel. I don't even want to share with my experience. They had "real" towels, blue ones and new beach towels. THAT was what relaxed me. It was truly a home away from home. I never slept so good as I did there, first and foremost because I was comfortable. The home was immaculate. I cannot say enough about this home. The owners are terrific. Oh and let me tell you about the grill.....SPOTLESS also. Our own grill at home isn't as clean as that! This was an amazing vacation, one that will forever be in my heart. We were all together as a family sharing memories and making new ones. Thank you Bob and Diane for being so amazing and for sharing your beautiful house with us. We will be returning! The Z and V Family
We had a great time & can't wait to come back another time!
We stayed for two weeks at this property and loved every minute of it. The pool set up was great, warm and there was plenty of seating for everyone. The home was well equipped with everything we needed to feed a large number of family members. It was close to all the activities and sights which made the trip that much more enjoyable. The kids loved the game room and spent as much time in there as they did in the pool ! Thank you for allowing us to use your home-couldn't have been any better ! Jim and Eileen
We enjoyed our vacation at Herron's Flight. I want to summerize why in the following: 1, The place is very clean, spotless! 2, The dish soap and laundry detergent and shower soap are provided, as well as the toilet paper and paper towels. We ran the dish washer every day. 3. Each room has its own TV. We are family of five, two adults and three kids with age 10,7, and 4. Our kids enjoyed air hockey and basketball game in the garage. The owner set up the games very nicely in the garage. 4. Our daughter loved the decorations inside the house! 5. From the place to Disney World takes about 20 minutes drive. Grocery store is nearby, very convenient. 6. Owner is very easy to work with. We appreciate it very much! There is only one thing I want to point out is that we would enjoy more if we could control the thermostat ourselves instead of calling owner and adjusted the temperature. Given the owner is so generous about providing the consumable items, there must be a reason that the owner want to make it so the thermostat is not controllable by the tenants. Overall, we love that place! We would recommend to our friends or if we go back to visit FL, that is the place we would stay again.
Great house with plenty of space! I stayed here in March 2017' with my husband our three children and our parents. The kids loved the pool and the game room kept the kids busy. The house is extremely well kept. Very close to Disney Parks! Tons of places to eat near by and everything needed for meal prep available in the kitchen as well. The owners are extremely friendly and easy to work with. I can't wait to come back and stay here for our next family trip
We loved the house. The neighborhood was nice and quiet. I would definitely stay again!
We spent a fantastic week at Herons' Flight! The kids were in the pool morning, noon, and night - they especially loved the color-changing pool lights for night swimming. They also loved the game room, and there is a playground in the community as well. The house is spacious, beautifully furnished, and was equipped with everything we needed. The kitchen and grill were perfect for preparing family meals to enjoy around the big patio table. Great location for day trips to Disney. Diane (the owner) is very responsive and helpful. Highly recommended!
Our family of 8 stayed 10 days in Heron Flight and had a wonderful time!. The house was everything we hoped it would be. All the beds were comfortable. The house has been recently renovated and is lovely. My grandchildren enjoyed the heated pool. The house is located about 15 min from Disney World. We never had any problems with traffic going to the park. A shopping center with a Publix is near-by and there are many restaurants too. It was nice to get away from the hussle and bustle & crowds at the end of the day. A very peaceful place to stay.
This property was everything you see in the photos and more. The owners are great to deal with and very accommodating of their guests' needs. We were traveling as a group of 10 (7 adults, 1 of which is wheelchair bound and 3 children). They had a ramp in place for the front for but to be honest, the house was more than handicap accessible without it. Wide halls and entry ways to accommodate a wheelchair. The driveway easily fits 2 minivans, one of which was a handicap van (so a little larger than your average sized minivan). The house is located with in maybe a 10 minute drive to the parks, not sure of the exact time but it was a relatively short drive! The game room was utilized well by the kids (and even us adults at times). The strollers they had were great for the parks. We didn't even bring one for our preschooler which worked out great on the night we did a late night at the park. The kitchen is very well stocked! Literally has everything you could possibly need and more. Bedrooms are great sizes and the pool was AMAZING! I have already recommended this property to several people and will definitely be staying here again!
This was a special holiday for us. A big family occasion, our wedding. Diane and Bob couldn't do enough for us from my first enquiry. They even called round to meet us as they were in the area. Which was lovely to put faces to the endless emails i had tormented them with for months haha. The house was absolutely perfect. Our holiday was 4 adults and 4 children but at one point at the time of our wedding we had 13 people and there was more than enough space for everyone. The location was brilliant, the master bedroom suite was fantastic and the furnishings top quality. The kitchen was equipped with everything you could need and more. And the view across the lake in the mornings and evenings was blissful. I was so pleased I chose this villa and would mostly definitely book again for future trips. In fact I can't wait for the next one as I didn't want to leave.
This vacation was a very good and relaxing. The house was perfect just like the picture . shopping and restaurant was just around the corner. The beach was only a hour in a half. Overall we had a great time can't wait until next year.
Heron's Flight was absolutely perfect for our family. We had a person in a wheelchair and with a few minor accommodations, we all (11 of us) had the best time. The pool security gate was an added bonus with our two young grandsons and our two older granddaughters loved their room and especially the game room. I highly recommend anyone looking to rent a house in Kissimmee to contact Diane and Bob. They were terrific to deal with and wanted us to have the best possible time at their home -- which we did! Thanks to both of them!
For our group of ten, 5 adults and 5 kids- ages from 18 down to 8- this house met all our needs. Recently updated, this house was clean and well kept. The bedrooms were spacious and comfortable for this group. The kitchen worked for us too and was very functional. The pool was awesome and utilized by everyone in the house. Nice to be 20 mins from Universal and have this relaxing pool to come back to, cool down and unwind. Close to restaurants, and essential shopping too. No regrets. Will stay here again in a heartbeat.
This rental home was everything we needed and more! Staying at this home was the highlight of our vacation as opposed to staying in motels/hotels. Our family will have lasting memories of the fun-filled time we had especially sitting around the beautiful pool watching the 4 kids have the time of their lives. Diane and Bob were an absolute pleasure to work with in organizing our home away from home. Thank you!!!
Heron's Flight was an amazing experience. The house was beautiful, well equipped and very accommodating for our family trip. We will definitely use this home again when we revisit the area. Thank you Diane and Bob for a wonderful experience.
Very modern house, flat screen televisions in all the rooms, memory foam beds, comfortable sofas, owners have thought of everything. Owners stopped in a couple of times to check to see if we needed anything. After they saw our son uses a wheelchair, they even came back over with a wheelchair ramp for the one step at the front door. Thank you for loaning us your home; we had a wonderful vacation.
The property was clean, well maintained and was comfortable to stay in. We had a group of eight adults and one child and had plenty of room for everyone with extra beds to spare. The private pool was fabulous to relax in after a long day of theme parks and walking. The property owners were wonderful to work with and supplied really great information about the home and the area that was very helpful! The owners even took the time to call on our arrival and departure days to make sure all was well. A very nice and personal touch!!! If you are planning a vacation to Orlando this was a very affordable and comfortable alternative to staying on theme park properties. Far better than a hotel and I would highly recommend!! We would definitely stay here again!
14 people (9 kids and 5 adults) stayed in Diane's and Bob's house. We had more than enough room. The house is very clean and well maintained. They have thought of every little thing their guests may need to make their vacation enjoyable. Diane and Bob were extremely easy to work with and always promptly returned e-mails. The pool and game room are an added fun bonus. Do not hesitate to rent this property. The location is close to the parks and restaurants. I have rented many homes through VRBO and this is certainly one that I would recommend and return to in the future.
My husband and I, along with our daughters, son-in-law and three grandsons rented Diane's and Bob's "Heron's Flight" house for our DisneyWorld vacation and couldn't have been happier! Beautifully remodeled from top to bottom, with everything you need for a wonderful time. Only about fifteen minutes from Disney, and all the shopping, restaurants, fast-food, groceries, etc. only five minutes away. The property sits on a small lake that has all types of waterfowl and is stocked with fish. The screened patio with pool is awesome and our grandsons really enjoyed the game room. With six bedrooms and four baths, we all had plenty of room to get ready each morning. The beds are extremely comfortable! Diane and Bob provided us with all kinds of great info on the best way to Disney, best pizza place, preferred grocery stores, etc. that really came in handy. Thanks, Diane and Bob, for thinking of everything a vacationing family could ask for! We very much enjoyed our stay and hopefully will be back in the future! Dan & Becky
Bob and Diane's property was beyond what we expected. Their home is clean and beautifully decorated. The bedrooms are spacious and the beds are comfortable. The house is equipped with everything we needed from pots and pans, plenty of dishes, beach towels, games, strollers and a high chair. We had a baby with us and were pleased to be able to have the use of a full size crib. We received a phone call from Bob the second morning of our stay to ensure that everything was to our pleasing. We were very impressed. The pool was sparkling clean and nicely heated. The pond beyond the pool provided a beautiful and relaxing view. Their home is very close to grocery stores, Target, and many restaurants. Diane provided a very detailed list which was so helpful. Everyone in our party agreed that when we return, this is the house that we will rent again. Thank you Bob and Diane.
The property was very clean and well equipped, and accommodated our family of 15 beautifully! Couldn't have asked for anything more!
My family and I enjoyed our stay. House was very clean, seemingly new everything, comfortable beds...just a great house to stay in. We had one hiccup and the property manager and owner handled immediately. Appreciate their attention and care about our stay. Would recommend this property to anyone and hope to visit again.
The house looks brand new, probably because it was completely renovated very recently. All furniture looked brand new as all the kitchen equipment, utensils, bathrooms, towels, etc. Beds had super comfortable memory mattresses. The passcode keyless entrance system was very practical. The location was near Disney parks and very close to restaurants, supermarkets and stores. The owners did a fantastic job in preparing a list of suggestions for nearby restaurants and stores. The quickly responded to our inquiry and were available when needed ( we had left the house address...our fault:) THIS HOUSE IS PERFECT!!! Thanks Diane!!!
We completely enjoyed our stay. The house was beautiful and well stocked with cooking utensils, towels, and other necessities. The house was so nice and comfortable that it made it extremely hard to leave! I highly recommend this property and definitely would love to rent again!
This is a beautiful house fully equipped with all amenities needed to enjoy an Orlando vacation. Diane & Bob have thought of everything from a fully equipped kitchen, awesome playroom, cool pool lights, and right down to things like strollers and bed rails for little ones. This house fit our party of 13 comfortably and was close to Disney, Universal & easy access to the highways for the beaches too. Handicap accessible with several rooms and a bathroom on the main floor. The owners are very pleasant and gave us a nice welcoming call and ensured everything went smoothly during our stay. Highly recommend this property for your next vacation! Will stay again. Thanks for everything Diane & Bob!
The house is even more beautiful than what you may see in pictures or video. Diane, Bob, and staff have done an absolute wonderful job in thinking of everything to make you feel at home. There is everything from a hand mixer to grill utensils and everything in between. You don't have to worry about anything except whatever food you're craving!! The house is very well kept, and we highly recommend staying here. We had kids from teens to a one year old staying with us, and there was something for everyone! Don't miss out on this one!
This property was great. It was very well stocked, very clean and up-to-date, and everything was new. Very, very comfortable for our party of 6 - with plenty of room to spare! The owners did a great job communicating and quickly responding to a glitch we had on arrival with our front door code no working. We would definitely stay here again whe we travel to Orlando. I would not hesitate to recommend this property if you are vacationing in the Orlando area.
The house was fantastic, brand new with all mod cons and lots of additional extras which other homes don't offer. It was also spotlessly clean. The setting is lovely, looking onto the lake and the location was excellent, literally minutes from Supermarkets, restaurants and Disney. We found universal and the outlets all easily accessible. The house was excellently equipped with absolutely everything you need, I can't recommend it enough. The kids particularly enjoyed the pool, basketball and foosball! The communication that we received from the owners Bob and Diane before our stay was brilliant and both were on hand if we had any queries during our stay. The management company were also excellent sorting out a slight problem we encountered with the barbecue, this was solved more or less immediately. Thank you for a great stay, can't wait to return and stay again! Best regards Chris, Louise and family.
We had a wonderful stay at this lovely villa, which was equipped with practically anything you may need in the kitchen, and throughout the home. As there were six bedrooms and we only needed four we had the opportunity of choosing our rooms - a difficult choice when they are all so lovely. The downstairs double overlooks the pool, so this was snapped up by one of our daughters with the other two torn between Frozen and Harry Potter themed twin rooms, which was decided on amicably in the end! For us the only choice was the master with the very large and relaxing ensuite. There was another large double room with fantastic views upstairs and another twin room downstairs we didn't use. All rooms were decorated to a high standard - you can see how much thought has gone into getting just the right decorations in each room. The pool was a perfect size and temperature, with the added bonus of the colour changing lights for late night swims. The games room was used by us far more than I had imagined, probably due to the wide selection of games available and the fact the room was air conditioned. As the other reviewers did, we met Diane and Bob, and would like to say what lovely caring people they are. There were a few issues with the cable while we were there (all 100% fine now) and Diane and Bill were really good about arranging for Xfinity to call to resolve these not only asap, but also at a convenient time for us. You could really tell that Diane, Bill and Josue (the local property manager) all cared about guests having a great holiday - that is something that is invaluable, and really made a difference to us. The villa is fantastic, the people are lovely - we would not hesitate to rebook this villa for a future holiday, and would definitely recommend it to friends and family.
First let me say how wonderful it was to work with Bob and Diane, and I was so glad to be able to meet them during our stay at their beautiful home. I was very specific on what I thought we needed for our vacation stay, and this villa was beyond what we wanted or needed. The house has been entirely renovated and is absolutely beautiful and comfortable. Six bedrooms, all with new memory foam mattresses made the stay for me especially wonderful. With neck problems since May, I woke each day feeling great. TVs in every room was a plus, and the kids enjoyed the game room. The kids loved the pool, especially at night with the mood lighting. The house is well stocked with towels, beach towels, and all your kitchen needs. The villa is close to all Disney Theme parks, and conveniently located to many restaurants and stores. You will not regret staying here, Bob and Diane are a pleasure to work with, they've created a beautiful home away from home that will make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. I wish they had more homes around the country, we would definitely book with them.
We chose Heron’s Flight for our Disney holiday because of its proximity to the parks and the great feedback we had read for Diane’s other Florida villa. We spoke to Diane on the phone and she helpfully explained how the booking and payment process worked. Speaking to her in person gave us confidence in booking. We were the first family to rent “Heron’s Flight” and Bob and Diane were there to meet us when we arrived. We were delighted by the level of finish and attention to detail that has been put into making sure this is a real home from home. In fact, we didn’t want to leave! The villa hugely added to our enjoyment of our holiday. It has a lovely south-facing position with the pool area in direct sunlight all day long. Mornings were spent enjoying the pool before heading to the parks in the afternoon. When they needed a break from the sun the kids watched Netflix on the smart TV in the lounge or played in the games room while we used the villa wi-fi to plan visits and book fast passes at Disney. The six bedrooms meant that, unlike home, each of our children had a room of their own. They loved having their own space and each bedroom had its own unique character. The mood lighting in the pool really makes this villa stand out amongst its neighbours. It created a wonderful ambience when relaxing with a glass of wine or cooling off in the pool at the end of a busy day. We mostly dined out but also used the 6-burner BBQ a couple of times and ate out on the patio. The villa is conveniently located for the Disney parks with Universal further away but easily drivable. There are many restaurants and shops nearby including Flippers pizzeria, Target and Publix at Rolling Oaks. We really did not want to leave at the end of our holiday and would highly recommend staying at “Heron’s Flight”. Bob and Diane were a pleasure to deal with and we would not hesitate to book with them again.
Wonderful Vacation Home
Very clean, comfortable, and well equipped. Excellent location. Lots of room around the screened in heated pool. Bob and Diane were very helpful. They are well organized and the booking process was easy and quick. We thoroughly enjoyed our 21 days at Herons Flight and would definitely stay here again.

Thank you very much for your review. You were great guests and we will be delighted to have you visit with us again.
Perfection at its best!
All I can say is WOW. This was the best Disney vacation we ever had. We had stayed on property when our kids were small but I got the idea from my daughter and son-in-law who rent houses rather than staying in a hotel. I contacted Bob well over a year to a year and a half ago. What an awesome man! I did not know the dates as my daughter did not have her own school schedule so I thought I knew, booked, changed my mind about the dates and canceled and rebooked. Bob was awesome and so understanding. Let me say I hate staying in hotels. I don't like the smell, I don't like the atmosphere and I don't like the maid service that comes in and cleans. It literally makes me sick to my stomach when I go into a shower in a hotel. Long story short, we arrived to this amazing home, AMAZING. All in all we had 7 of us staying in the home. Yes we could have chosen something smaller but what caught my eye is the fact that they updated, renovated and were extremely nice and the fact they had 5 stars.

Oh and let me tell you about the grill.....SPOTLESS also. Our own grill at home isn't as clean as that! This was an amazing vacation, one that will forever be in my heart. We were all together as a family sharing memories and making new ones. Thank you Bob and Diane for being so amazing and for sharing your beautiful house with us. We will be returning!

Comfortable & Very Spacious
Our week stay was very nice. Plenty of room for all of us & we had everything we needed. The pool was so much fun & the patio area was so spacious. Aside from a small leak in one of the rooms (which was only temporary), our stay was almost perfect. Diane, Bob & Paula were on top of it & always made sure things were going smooth at the home. We missed the home as soon as we left. We would definitely recommend the home to anyone especially to larger families looking to have fun in a nice pool.
