About Sarah & Ken

Who knew when we bought our first home 10 years ago that it would lead us down the path of a new business venture?

We certainly had no idea, but here we are a decade later welcoming guests to beautiful Orlando vacation homes and loving 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 the last 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 our 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 cake and eat it too!

We have 3 vacation homes of our own and we also manage reservations and guest relations for 3 other homes, which belong to family members and close personal friends.

We all have the same firm commitment and that is to provide wonderful relaxing and carefree vacations in beautiful homes.

We look forward to being part of your vacation memories.

Sarah & Ken purchased this house in 2010

Why Sarah & Ken chose Kissimmee

We were looking for something spacious, in a great location with a nice outlook. We found everything on our wishlist in this home and then some! The sun deck at the rear of the house overlooks the retention field so there are no rear neighbors, which makes it a great place to relax day and night.

The extended corner plot gives us plenty of space and, coupled with the fact we are tucked away in the corner of the development, there's little passing traffic.

The location was another draw too - 5 miles west of Disney and lots of restaurants within a couple of minute's drive.

The gated community is extremely friendly with a great mix of residents and vacationers and the leisure facilities are a great bonus. The resort has 3 large swimming pools, one being just a few minutes from our home.

What makes this house unique

The fully screened sun deck is peaceful in the evenings and a terrific sun trap during the day - perfect to soak up that glorious Florida sunshine. Enjoy a BBQ or just relax and spend precious time with family and friends. The perfect place to relax at the end of a busy day at the parks.

Outstanding property with great customer service!

  • 5 of 5

This home was very spacious and in great shape, with a convenient location near Disney, and many other attractions. It was very well maintained and clean. The owners were outstanding; communicating all necessary information, providing all the necessities for our stay, and going well beyond what could have been expected. When we missed the first 3 days of our stay, due to a family emergency, they extended our stay without any cost to us. We thoroughly enjoyed our extra day. (They offered more time, but unfortunately we could only stay one more day.) We would definitely recommend this property to any of our friends or relatives.

A Great Vacation stay at Ken and Sarah's

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at this property. Very nicely accommodated and clean. Comfortable beds and great location for Disney parks. We stayed with my sister in law and her family and the property is laid out nicely for 2 families. On arrival we we're pleased to find some basic necessities saving a trip to the grocery store. That was greatly appreciated after a long drive. This property was "as advertised" and we enjoyed the week we were there. I would recommend this property to friends and family and hope to return again. Very good communication with the owners which gave us reassurance as we got closer to our arrival. Thank you Sarah and Ken for a memorable stay and we hope to stay again in the future.

What a lovely place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I traveled with our two grandchildren - ages 16 and 14. Amber (16) is a Harry Potter fan so she stayed in the themed Harry Potter bedroom. Our grandson loved having the king sized bed all to himself. At home he is limited to a twin bed so this was like heaven for him.

The rest of the house was great. Two large TVs and plenty of space. Sarah and Ken treated us like family. We certainly did not lack for anything during the visit.

The location is great for Disney. Taking the back roads (toll), we were at Blizzard Beach in about 5 minutes. Magic Kingdom was just another mile or so down the road.

There are plenty of places to eat in the area. (Hey, it was my vacation, too. If I had wanted to cook, the kitchen had everything I needed but I didn't want to cook.) This house is far enough back from the main roads so we did not hear any traffic. We did hear cardinals, cranes, crickets and other sounds of nature. Very peaceful.

Beds were very comfortable. There were both foam and feather pillows for the bed which was a very nice touch.

I will stay there for my next trip to Orlando.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for such a lovely review. Lovely to hear your grandson enjoyed having the king to himself! We’re thrilled to hear you felt so comfortable and were able to enjoy the amenities. And we don’t blame you at all for not cooking! Especially with so many restaurants to choose from locally. It was a pleasure having you stay with us and it goes without saying we’d love to welcome you back. Thanks again, Sarah & Ken

LOVE THIS PLACE! (Should've Stayed Longer.)

  • 5 of 5

Our four-night stay at Sarah & Ken’s Sleepy Hollow was perfect for our family of four, including our tween & Boston Terrier. Plenty of room to stretch out in this huge, beautiful home! From the welcome basket of snacks to the spa robes hanging in our spacious closets to the ultra-inviting bedding, the details made our stay that much more comfortable and memorable. The spacious field in the back made it perfect for kite flying, drone free styling, and playtime with our pup. We even caught fish and saw an alligator in one of the lakes! Everyone we met was super friendly.

The only bad thing was that we didn’t book it for a whole week! We truly hated leaving and will be back for a longer stay as soon as possible! Thanks for a wonderful memory!

Well maintained and furnished!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough for how excellent this rental is! I'll start with Ken & Sarah, they were the best owners we've worked with, always very quick to respond to questions and incredibly thoughtful of our needs. While we were there we had one issue with a remote being missing and there was a new one hanging on the door by the time we got back the next day.

As for the house it is in a nice community with a gated entrance and within a very reasonable drive to Disney and close to restaurants and grocery stores. The house itself was bigger than I was expecting with lots of spaces to relax and spread out at the end of a long day. Ken & Sarah have also furnished the house with movies and books that you have access to to help unwind. And the kitchen has many items you don't usually find in a rental which really provides a lot of options and versatility in using the kitchen rather than some that are pretty bare bones. Ken & Sarah have really gone out of their way to make sure you have what you need to relax and enjoy yourself while there.

Overall I was incredibly happy with our stay and will definitely be keeping an eye on availability whenever our next Orlando adventure comes around!
