A brand new BBQ grill is equipped for you to show off your cooking skill. The pool area is guarded by a screen enclosure for protection on the house. The pool deck is provided with a removable safety fence for extra added protection for young infants should you need it. All doors leading on to the deck area have been provided with additional safety locks and switch-able alarms.

About Jane

Hi, I am Jane and I own and manage this wonderful villa at Kissimmee, Florida. I have three boys age from 2 to 8. All of them love this house and enjoy their vacation here. We recently upgraded the floor and the game room in the house. We are looking for more plans to decorate this house into a dream vacation house for our guests. I sincerely hope this house can be a sweet and cozy home for you when you stay in Disney area. I strive to manage you stay to fit for your budget with providing your good service and making your vacation a life long lasting memory full of happiness.

Jane purchased this villa in 2013

Why Jane chose Kissimmee

Location! Location! Location! The house is very close to Disney Theme Parks and the Hwy 192, the center business area of Kissimmee.

What makes this villa unique

This house is located at one of the biggest lots, which provides an absoutely private distance away from neighbor's house. Enjoy an easy and fast access to major hight ways and main attractions.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Awesome. Thank you for everything. We are absolutely satisfied in your home and I will be sure to say so. We will definitely be using you again.

Poor Rental

  • 1 of 5

I rented this vacation home in October 2016. When driving up to the property the first thing we saw was a pile of tree branches in front of the house that I had to get out of the car to move to get into the driveway. The house was very dirty on the outside and had paint chipping off, especially the front door. Upon entering the house we noticed that the front door seemed to be previously broken into because a large part of the trim had been broken off and not replaced, just nailed back. The decoration on the see thru front door was chipped off to the point where you could look right into the house and the blinds did not go across the whole window, which left the window uncovered.The walls and baseboards were very scratched and dirty. The vents in the living room were very dusty and it spread to the ceiling around the vents. The ceiling fan in the family room was visibly dusty with dust was hanging off of the pull string. The furniture shown is actually cracked and worn and covered with an ill-fitting couch cover. The screened sitting area by the pool was ripped and hanging. The sinks in the bathrooms were rusted and two of the televisions did not work. We also saw a couple of roaches during our stay. The "game room" in the garage is actually a storage area with a couple of game tables. The sheets did not appear to be clean. Upon arrival, I contacted the owners, who sent the property manager the next morning. He attempted to fix the tv's with no success. I showed him all of the dust and dirty areas and he responded by telling me the house was cleaned but could not explain why it was visibly dirty. I then spoke to the owners and explained how disappointed I was with the appearance and condition of the house. The owners only solution was to find somewhere else to stay and she would give me a refund for the days I did not stay. I explained to her that I had been looking since my arrival but was unable to find another rental property in such short notice for such a large party. She then said, that if I want to stay it's ok but there is nothing else she can do because she is far away and the problems cannot be corrected in one day. I explained to her that even though she has hired a property manager, she is still responsible for the house and her house is disrepair and I should compensated for the inconvenience and the misleading information about the property. She said since I decided to stay in the house then she will not give any type of compensation.

This is one of the worst places I've ever stayed at away from home. The bedroom sheets were dirty with hair and stains, couches filthy, the bathroom sinks rusty, and there were roaches in the bathroom and dining room 😒😠 and to top it off when I called the landlord (Jane Yang) to tell her about the conditions of the home she was upset with me for calling, and extremely rude and unapologetic. I would NOT recommend anyone stay in this home unless you want to be disappointed. Not happy 😑😟😡

wonderful location

  • 4 of 5

the location cannot be beat! We were not even ten minutes to the parks. The home has everything you need to be comfortable. Plenty of room for 10+ people. close to shopping as well. We had a few minor issues that Jane was made aware of and handled. We would rent again.

Your experience (public)

My family and I enjoyed our stay in this house October 1st through the 5th. Staying in a house, rather than a hotel, allowed us much more family time and made our trip much more enjoyable. Although we had 7 adults and 4 small children the house was surprisingly roomy and comfortable for a large family. Because we had planned to save money by cooking and eating in, I was pleasantly surprised to find the kitchen was well stocked with utensils, pots, pans, etc. So many times, we find that is not the case. Many rentals have minimal or broken furnishings making it difficult to prepare meals for several people. Although the pool was little cool with it being October, we had expected that and really didn't have much time for swimming anyway. We got in with the grand babies a time or two and that was plenty. Best of all the house was very central to Disney World,restaurants, shopping, and necessities.

Owner's Response: Thanks a lot for taking your time to review. I am pleased that you had wonderful time in our vacation rental house. We are always trying hard to serve our guests best from both our service and guests' budget perspectives. Your comment is precious to us and it will keep us improve our service continuously. Thanks a lot for understanding us as a vacation rental homeowner since your are also a homeowner. You can easily understand how much work to do for running a rental property. As you know, no rental property is the same and no guests are the same. So we always run the business according to our guests' need. Most guests staying in this house are relatively big groups with 10 to 14 people. Among them, most come with little kids. So we set up some kid equipment such as a full crib and playpens and we also prepare spare beds such as futons and airbeds. These facilities are not fancy and luxury but do serve the purpose for our guests. We also provide several high chairs and strollers for groups with little ones. A Disney trip is a great memory for little ones and they can cherish Disney experience forever. We hope guests enjoy these facilities. Of course we do have some inefficiency on running the rental business. We are trying to find these issues and actively resolving them. You are so considerate and organized. We appreciate you kept the house clean. Our cleaning service mentioned it was an easy clean for them after your checked out. They hope we can always have guests like your group. Thanks again. We do welcome all of our early guests can provide constructive reviews and comment like you. Hopefully we can have chance to serve your group and your friends in the future.
