About Derek Houghton

With my wife Julie we have been visiting Florida particularly the Disney area for the last 20 years, we just love the place and of course the 'SUN' We decided to buy a place of our own rather than carry on renting which we did in 2009, having rented we know what the guest expect and need so with that in mind that's exactly what we supply to our guests, luxury living at affordable prices.

Derek Houghton purchased this house in 2009

Why Derek Houghton chose Kissimmee

Oak Island Harbor community is a community that is known and appreciated for its convenient location in the prestigious Formosa Gardens area. Upscale private pool homes in a spectacular and peaceful setting yet close to where everything is going on.

If you are vacationing in Central Florida for the fabulous weather as well as visiting all the world famous theme parks, then this is the villa for you. The house has one of the nicest settings imaginable with the back lawn running down to the waters edge of the private lake that this community is built around. The generous pool deck gives you uninterrupted exposure to the Florida sunshine all day long. Then in the evening enjoy the spectacular sunsets and the nightly glow of the firework display from the nearby Disney Park while you relax in the lanai or soak in our relaxing spa.

The lake is also visited by a variety of Florida wildlife including Herons, Cranes etc, the lake is also stocked with a variety of fish, so if you are feeling lucky, grab a pole from the games room and try it out.

What makes this house unique

Just a 2 minute drive from the villa, guests will find the famous highway 192 – and the Formosa Gardens shopping plaza and eateries. Some of the best known restaurants are located at Formosa Gardens, with an Outback Steak House, Red Lobster, TGI Fridays, Buffalos Wild Wings, Giordano’s Chicago Pizza restaurant, Carabba’s Italian, Cracker Barrel, Chinese, Subway and Taco Bell takeaways, as well as shops, a Winn Dixie supermarket, and much much more.

Review submitted: September 24, 2012 Date of arrival: September 7, 2012



We arrived on the Friday after a long flight and check in, we got to the Villa and it took our breath away. We loved every minute there and it made our honeymoon. The villa is stunning in every way, from the bedrooms, to the bathroom, to the kitchen and the lounge. Having not been to America for a while we were slightly blind and Derek had kindly left us information about local resources such as restaurants and shops. After a long day at the parks it was perfect to come back and sit in the jacuzzi looking across the lake and watching the sun go down. The location of the villa is perfect, so close to Disney etc and lovely restaurants only down the road. We would definitely recommend this place to our family and friends and we certainly be returning. Thank you Derek also for lending my husband your fishing rod - he made good use of it and it was very pleased. Thank you again for letting us stay, we had a fantastic time.

Relaxing House and Fireworks in the Distance

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at Derek and Julie's place last week. We gathered to visit with my cousin, aunt and uncle. They visited Epcot one day on their own; it's close enough to drive to. We cooked in the kitchen. The hot tub and pool were nice and worked great. Used the game room one afternoon as well with my sister and dad. From the hot tub we saw fireworks in the distance. Great place to visit again and recommended.

Great home in great location

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for a week stay for my husband, daughter, son-in-law and 3 grandsons ages 3, 10 and 14. My husband and I claimed the master suite on the first floor and they had the entire upper level which worked out very well.

The house was exactly as described in the listing, fully equipped, and in perfect working condition upon arrival. We took full advantage of the pool, hot tub and garage game room. My oldest grandson is an avid fisherman so the lake front location was particularly important to us. Both he and his 10 year old brother caught several large large mouth bass as well as many smaller ones.

The location was convenient to shopping, restaurants and all the Disney Parks. We spent several days in the parks and enjoyed the quiet location and house amenities during our off days from the Disney mania.

One thing I especially appreciated was the prompt and friendly communication from the owners Derek and Julie. I had a few questions prior to our stay and they were always promptly responded to. We received a welcome call from Julie the day after we arrived to make sure that everything was okay. By the end of our stay I felt like we were old friends.

I would highly recommend this rental, and would definitely rent it again.

You won't find one better!

  • 5 of 5

The Lakeview home was our second time staying in the community, and it's a perfect location for anyone visiting the theme parks. Street is quiet, yet extremely close to all amenities. Communication from the home owners was prompt and always friendly, and the local property management team was exceptional - quick to respond to any call, and extremely accommodating (our only request to increase the temperature of the pool and hot tub was addressed within an hour of calling).

The home was exactly as described (clean, spacious, etc.), fully equipped, and in perfect working condition upon arrival. Pool and hot tub were exceptional, and the back deck area offered peace and quiet at all times.

Would highly recommend this rental, and would easily rent again - you will not find anything better in the area.
