Recent updates to the home….
We continuously make updates on a yearly basis. Just this spring we refurbished our lania with a fresh coat of paint and updated the bedding in two of the bedrooms.
Within the last five years, we've updated our security system, installed cameras outside of the home facing the road. New smoke detectors and emergency lighting were installed. We now have a 65" smart TV in the living room along with a new living room chair. New quilts for one of the twin bedrooms were purchased and landscaping was completed around the home. We've updated our pool furniture with new cushions.
Bedding and linens are updated regularly. In 2018 new La-Z-Boy couches, end tables and coffee tables were added to the living room. Bathrooms were updated in the fall of 2017. In 2016 and 2017 we added quartz countertops to the kitchen and bathrooms, resurfaced the swimming pool, and installed new carpet throughout the home.
This is the perfect destination for your family vacation where priceless family memories will be made. For more information about the home, the surrounding area and availability, please contact us.
Why Kids Love It
The kids love the pool! They love sleeping in the "Disney Dog Room." The house is so close to the Disney parks you can be there in no time which makes it easy when you have small children.

About the owner: We are a married couple with two sons who are grown with families of their own. Our favorite thing to do is to spend time with our children and grandchildren. We are animal lovers and have never been without at least one pet. We currently have a little black shih-tzu, named Pookie. She keeps us company when we can't be with our children and grandchildren. We are life long residents of Michigan. My husband is an MSU Spartan and I'm a WMU Bronco!
Several years ago we wanted to take our children and their families to Disney World and decided to rent a house instead of hotel rooms. We loved it and realized it was the best way to vacation with small children. We also believe that it's less expensive, because otherwise we would have needed three hotel rooms. We could cook some of our meals at home, do laundry, and give the children the ability to play as if they were in their own home. The location is perfect: Lots of activities and restaurants nearby. Close to all the major theme parks and within driving distance for day trips to Cocoa Beach, Cape Canaveral and many areas on the gulf.
Why this property? In addition to the home with all the new upgrades and the beautiful pool, the location is perfect for vacationers. Shopping centers are plentiful. You can enjoy a quite relaxing time at the house, or be in the center of all the excitement central Florida has to offer within minutes.

Guestbook comments from the host:
Clean, spacious & close to Disney! Will definitely be back.
Great villa for two families and great location - we drove to Disney (only a few mins to the gates) and Universal with ease. Kay responded almost immediately with any queries; highly recommend!
This house was everything me and my family hope for.
All good, very nice and clean house with good information on the key aspects. We have enjoyed the stay very much.
The home was very clean and open. The beds and pillows were all incredibly comfortable. The only issue we had was the internet going out (which is no big deal, it happens) but the owner responded right away and we fixed the problem quickly.
The property was just as described. The pool was a nice way to cap off a long day at the parks! Kay was great to deal with and we will stay again next time we return to this area.
The house very clean. Just the right size for our family of five. The boys loved having their own bedrooms and a pool to play in at the end of the day. The location was perfect for us. Very close to Disney World and Walmart! Thanks again Kay!
It’s a very nice house for 2 families to stay in. The pool is very nice and kids loved it . Rooms are very cozy. We enjoyed this house and would recommend it to our friends.
We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed the home. We try to keep things fresh and nice by continuously making improvements. We hope to see you back again. Thank you!
We stayed at Kay's Resort from April 10th to the 16th and loved every minute of it. The house is beautiful and very clean. I especially loved the layout of the house. Only a few minutes from Disney which was a plus. We spent a lot of time in the pool. Everything was perfect and I love knowing my family will have the perfect home to rent for future visits to Orlando. I highly recommend this rental. The owners were also very nice and accommodating.
Thank you so much for your kind words. We're so happy you enjoyed the home. We make every effort to make it comfortable for the families that stay there. We hope you enjoyed it as much as our family does!

*****VERY NICE! CONVENIENT, CLEAN, WELL EQUIPPED, FAIR PRICED & EASY TO DEAL WITH. WE WILL RENT AGAIN.
My Response: Thank you very much for your kind words. We're so glad you enjoyed the home. We appreciate getting feedback from our guests and hope to see you back!
The description of the home is everything it says it is. There are no exaggerations or stretching of the truth. If I were to go to Disney again, I would first look to see if Kay was renting her home. Location is amazing... you are in the heart of where you need to be for a Disney vacation. This house is the next best thing to staying at the resorts.The layout of the house is perfect for those traveling with several kids as there are two bedrooms on one end, with a bathroom between (great for the 'kids' side of the house) and then another two bedrooms on the other end with a bathroom (powder room) and a master bath... the adult side of the house. In between the two pair of bedrooms is the living area. The living area has plenty of seating for a group to watch the latest or missed Disney movie. There is also a large dining table in the living area. Providing plenty of space for 8 to eat together comfortably. Kitchen is perfect to make meals, but be warned there are not family style pans to cook with. However, with a little planning around what is there, enough to make do.Overall, we had a fantastic time between the location and the amenities, you'd be hard pressed to find a better place to stay in Orlando.

Thank you so much for your great review. I'm so happy you enjoyed the home and I really appreciate your kind words. I would like some valuable feed back, though. What do you mean by family style pans? I'm going down there in August and, it there's something else I need in the kitchen, I'll be sure to provide it. Also, we communicated several times over the past few months and you were a pleasure to work with, too! Hope to see you back!
This property had everything we needed. Within a few minutes of Disney. Great central location as well to Universal and within reasonable distance to the beach. Definitely will be coming back!

Thank you for your kind review! I'm so glad you enjoyed the home and had a great vacation. I hope to see you back.
This lovely vacation home proved to be the perfect place for making and sharing vacation memories! The pool was wonderful on those days when we stayed home and a welcome respite after our return from the parks. The home itself is open and spacious and provides everything anyone would need. The kitchen is generously stocked with cookware, dining ware, multiple coffee making options, etc. The guests' comfort has been a priority. The location could not be more perfect! Easy drive to all the Disney Parks and Universal Studios as well as water parks, miniature golf, grocery stores, etc. The owners were very gracious and committed to making our stay exceptional. Kay was very responsive to all communications and we truly felt our enjoyment was a top priority! I highly recommend this home and we hope to return for future vacation stays!

Thank you for your kind review, Margaret! It was a pleasure working with you, too. I'm glad you and your family enjoyed the home. It's important to me that guests feel at home there. I hope to see you back again.
Kay’s Retreat was the perfect destination for our recent vacation! Everything was perfect. She thought of everything we might need during our stay. The house was clean and comfortable. Will absolutely be using again!

Thank you so much! I'm so glad you enjoyed it. We do our best to make it family friendly and comfortable. I'm glad you had a great vacation and hope to see you back!
Excellent location, beautiful home.
Our family stayed at Kay's retreat from December 23-January 4th 2019. Upon walking into the house the first thing you will notice is that it is spotless. The furniture and carpets are in excellent condition. The house is well stocked from towels for both showering and the pool, to kitchen appliances and dishes, this house has everything. The pool is a beautiful temperature and there were pool toys there for the children to enjoy. Kay has thought of everything. For our beach day there were coolers, chairs and beach toys, it really makes vacationing at this house flawless. We went for a walk several mornings, the neighbourhood was always quite. We always felt safe and "at home". This home is located a short 3 minute drive from Walmart and there are amble restaurants 5 mins away. We travelled using UBER on New Years Eve and it was less then $10 to a nice restaurant. The Disney parks and the town of Celebration is less then 20 mins away(depending on traffic). New years Eve the children swam after returning from the restaurant and there was a beautiful fireworks display that could be seen from near by resorts and parks. It was a truly wonderful way to ring in the new year. The communication with Kay was easy and flawless. She provided us with all the information we required for the home in a timely manner. As well, in the home Kay has provided information on all near by attractions and restaurants. We often used these menus to order take out and took an airboat tour after browsing one of the information brochures. I would not hesitate to stay at this house again.

Angela, Thank you so much for you wonderful comments! It's our hope to make the house comfortable for families that stay here. I'm so glad you had a great vacation. We hope to see you back!Kay
Perfect House for 2 families wishing to travel together
Home was very neat and clean. Had no issues at all. The floor plan worked really well for 2 families to stay together and still maintain privacy. This home has 2 bedrooms and a bath in the front and 2 bedrooms and a bath and a half in the back of the home. The kids loved the swimming pool and they have all the baby items you need when traveling with small children. Would definitely recommend!
