About Alan and Janet Barnard

We are both Londoner's who now live Norfolk, which is about 100 miles to the North East of London. We live in a rural location and about a 30 minute drive to the coast.

We have 2 grown up children both working and living near London. At home, we have 2 Dogs, 3 cats, 2 ponds with many species of fish including Koi, Mirror Carp etc..

We love Florida

Alan and Janet Barnard purchased this villa in 2014

Why Alan and Janet Barnard chose Kissimmee

We are from the UK and are both retired. We, have been visiting Florida's Kissimmee / Orlando areas for many years, first staying in Hotels and then moving on to villa rentals. Having fallen in love with the area, we decided to buy in May 2011, buying a Townhome obtaining a 5 Star rating on the HomeAway / VRBO websites. In April 2014, we upgraded to a Villa with it's own pool and great location. Communities to the south of the '192' being our favorite Resort area, Cumbrian Lakes was the obvious choice for us.

The location of the Resort, and it's close proximity to the Disney, Universal and Sea World locations, plus the added security of a Gated Community made the decision easy.

As we have only recently taken ownership, we are still building up guest review ratings, but expect to see many more positive reviews over the following months, as the number of our bookings grows.

What makes this villa unique

We always had this picture in our heads of having breakfast by our own pool looking out over a pond/lake view, and this house provided us with that and more. The South Facing aspect of the pool and extended deck area provides us with sunshine all day long as well as wonderful sunsets, There is a 'Wrap-Around' lake view from the villa's poolside, ideal for a breakfast coffee, a mid-day cold beer and an evening whatever takes our fancy, including a barbeque and glass of wine.

Cumbrian Lakes resort is ideally located for eating out, and many restaurants that we use can be found within 5 miles of the property. And, although we are not 'Shop Till You Drop' people, we do enjoy shopping for bargains, and the 'Orlando Premium Outlets', the 'Loop' and the new 'Lake Buena Vista' shopping centres are all less than 25 minutes away.

So for us .....JUST PERFECT!

Best place we've ever stayed in!

  • 5 of 5

This place was exceptionally clean when we arrived, and had a lot of space for the 4 of us. I am very happy that we chose this place because of the south facing pool, we enjoyed that the most, because we got the most sun, and made the most of the days we were here! We all loved this place! Highly recommend!

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your great review, we are so pleased that you had a great stay, and would welcome you back anytime in the future. We are really pleased with the comments about the South facing pool, which is especially important to our guests during the winter months with the shorter days and the sun lower in the sky. Again many thanks Jan & Alan

Very clean

  • 4 of 5

Property was very clean. Paid for heated pool and was not turned on and we had to call in order for them to turn it on. We arrived on 12/6 and reported on 12/8 because we thought we needed to wait for it to heat up a day. Management turned it on 12/8 after we called. Took a long time to dry clothes. May want to have it looked at.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your review, We are very sorry to hear about the problem with the pool heating. It is normally turned on at latest 24 hours before a guest's arrival. I will contact our management company to find out why this failed to happen before your visit and ensure that it does not happen in the future. Again thanks for staying with us, and hope to see you again in the future

Lovely villa - great location

  • 5 of 5

The villa was in a lovely location and well equipped both inside and on the deck. It was a comfy base for our holiday. It's position meant you get the sun on the pool all day. It's location meant it wasn't far to the main theme parks. Communication with the owner was good right from our initial enquiry.
