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.

Visiting Orlando

  • 4 of 5

We were very happy with Vista del Lago. We were visiting with a pet and there was plenty of room for walks. The home was well set up and comfortable and the owners did little extras like a welcome bottle of wine and snacks. Sarah was very responsive to any questions that we had.

Incredible hosts and stay

  • 5 of 5

Sarah was so easy and incredible to work with during the planning, actual stay, and after the stay. After 3 days of driving, we arrived very late and were welcomed with Christmas lights outside and a Christmas tree with gifts inside along with a few items in the refrigerator and in a basket on the counter. Our dog was also made very welcome with the dog bowls, dog blanket, and other supplies waiting for him. The house was very clean, felt very homey, and always great to come home to after long, exhausting days at the parks. This is the first rental home that was stocked with everything we needed. Thanks Sarah and Ken for such a wonderful stay!

Excellent hosts and great property

  • 5 of 5

Ken and Sarah are amazing hosts--from the communications to the level of detail in how they share their rental to the surprises when you arrive! We spent Christmas 2016 with them and were delighted to find a nice home with nice decorations, a beautiful tree, and several presents with our names on them (even the dogs!!!). They had everything available to make you feel at home (including adult libations!). I will definitely stay again when I'm in Orlando.

Fantastic Home With Room for Everyone

  • 5 of 5

This property was the perfect fit for our vacation with 4 adults and 2 kids. Sarah and Ken's home has all the creature comforts you could want, it was very clean and the home is well appointed with comfortable beds, plenty of places to put your feet up after a day of walking around in the parks and everything you could need in the kitchen to make meals all in a quiet, gated community really close to the Disney parks and 20 minutes to Universal. There was plenty of room for all of us to have our own space in the 8 days we stayed. The kids LOVED the Harry Potter room and really liked the bunk bed. I could have taken half the clothes I packed with the large capacity washer and dryer that is provided- more room in the suitcases for souvenirs. I would absolutely recommend this property to anyone who is traveling with Grandma and Grandpa like we were who like to turn in early or who may need some time away from energetic kids :)

Sarah and Ken are consummate professionals when it comes to hospitality. The arrival information was very detailed and helpful, Sarah was very prompt in responding to emailed questions and I felt like I was staying in the home of a friend. Thank you so much for sharing your home with us.
