About Sarah & Ken

Who knew when we bought our first home 12 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 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 and lifelong friends.

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 right on Disney’s doorstep in Florida.

Who says you can’t have your cake and eat it too! And with Pixie Dust on top!

We have 3 vacation homes so we have something to suit couples and small families and larger groups or multi-generation families.

We have a firm commitment 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 Vista del Lago

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.

We love having two living areas too - it means adults can relax in the main living room while kids play on the Wii or watch one of hundreds of DVDs provided.

We felt right at home

  • 5 of 5

The homeowners went out of their way to make us feel welcome. They were very approachable and communicated by email and text. Sarah kindly offered to set up an early check-in for us and we were pleasantly surprised to see she had left some grocery staples for us, like milk, eggs, coffee and even some beer and wine! The house came with everything advertised and I feel they really went above and beyond to make our stay pleasant and comfortable. My teenaged daughter loved having the king bedroom with the adjoining sunny deck. She wanted us to move here! I loved the sunny deck, living rooms, kitchen and master bedroom. The beds were so comfortable!

Well stocked, clean, and close to Disney - what's not to love?

  • 5 of 5

Before I get to the house, let me just say, Sarah and Ken were wonderful. They checked in with us before we arrived, offering advice and tips for our trip. Any questions I had, were promptly and clearly answered. The house itself was welcoming, clean, and the best stocked house I have rented off of VRBO in the 6 years we have been using the site. It was such a pleasure to stay there.

They even have a blog, so you can easily pre plan your entire vacation!

Wonderful accommodations and owner experience.

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at 2am to find the house lit with outdoor and indoor Holiday decorations, as well as lamps turned on in each room. The light switches were all labeled, the house was spotless and the kitchen was stocked with a great welcoming supply of breakfast makings and drinks to start our short vacation. That was such a pleasant surprise after our 8 hour drive after working all day. The house easily accommodated a mix of ages and family configurations; owners Ken and Sarah made sure we had everything we needed along with very comfortable beds and plenty of linens for our group.

The house and neighborhood is truly within minutes of the Disney parks- even with New Year's crowds.

I would also like to mention how helpful the "insider" notebook as well as the notebook filled with all nearby restaurants and their menus were to our stay. Really, this was a vacation with a private planner. Thank you Ken and Sarah! You go above and beyond for your guests, and we can't wait to go back!!

Home was very clean, well decorated and everything you might think you need and more.

  • 5 of 5

We reserved this property mainly based on prior reviews. All of the reviews stated that Ken & Sarah thought of everything, and indeed they did! It was very nice to arrive after driving 14 hours and not have to worry about going to the store to get just the basics, let alone the extras. We would definitely stay in one of their properties again. Thanks again, Ken and Sarah, for making our stay comfortable. By the way, we really loved the oranges off of the tree.

We have utilized VRBO rentals in the past but this was the most memorable, rewarding, rejuvenating experience we have had. Our hosts Ken and Sarah really went the extra mile and showed us how much they really care about their renters even to the tiniest detail such as having a pumpkin pie and other food items on the kitchen counter to great us when we arrived for our Thanksgiving family gathering. They even had dog bowls for our two dogs that we brought.

The house gave us plenty room to either be together or separate ourselves from the kids for some peace and quiet when needed. Lots of outdoor space for taking long walks and watching the amazing big birds in the area behind the house.

The rental unit was immaculate with every amenity provided for our needs. It really made our entire family feel special, at home, and very much welcomed into Ken and Sarah's home. We definitely plan on having another gathering at this house in the future and highly recommend any families looking to experience a wonderful cozy setting to stay here.

Wonderful Property

  • 5 of 5

The minute we walked in the door we felt at home. The house is beautifully and creatively decorated. Plus it was much bigger than we expected and was stocked with everything you could possible need. Sarah and Ken were kind enough to leave us some breakfast fixings along with some much needed adult beverages. We enjoyed our many walks and Zoey made some friends along the way. The neighborhood was so quiet and everyone waved when going by. Sarah and Ken were the best owners we have ever dealt with. Thank you for allowing us to stay at your house. We can't wait to come back.
