|Minimum Stay||3 nights|
After a long day’s walk (or run – thanks, kids!) through Disney, there’s nothing quite like sinking into the warm, inviting bubbles of your very own, very spa.
After a theme park marathon, there’s nothing quite like taking a day off for a family pool party, a foosball competition, or a movie marathon.
After an exhilarating day of roller coasters, Dole whip (www.disneyfoodblog.com/2010/05/05/disney-dole-whip) , and larger-than-life characters, there’s nothing quite like a home-cooked family meal under the stars.
After all your careful planning, there’s nothing quite like Villa Mimosa. Nothing quite like coming home to the perfect Disney vacation home – to a place that feels like a true home-away-from-home.
That is, if your home were drenched in year-round sun, had a private pool and hot tub, and a theater-style sound system!
Welcome to Villa Mimosa, your perfect Disney home base. We’re going to have fun together.
Please see our calendar to check real time availability, and then book securely and instantly online!
♠♠♠ SPACIOUS FAMILY LIVING ♠♠♠
Disney is a very special kind of family vacation – the kind you look forward to, plan, and dream about, sometimes for years.
Villa Mimosa is built just for this kind of vacation: for family togetherness, for movie night and game marathons, for afternoons in the pool and evenings dining al fresco. Here, there are spaces to enjoy together, and private little nooks for time apart. It’s just the right balance.
Of course, it is Central Florida, so we’re betting most of your time will be spent outdoors. The weather really is that good, even in winter. (And psst, the pool can be heated!)
Villa Mimosa’s Great Outdoors beckon with a spacious, 32-foot pool and spa (hot tub), pool deck and lanai, pool loungers, outdoor dining, and even an optional grill. Even better, the entire pool deck and lanai are completely screened in, so leave your worries about weather and mosquitoes back home! This is the glorious, sun-splashed Florida lifestyle you’ve been dreaming of.
Of course, what’s vacation without a foosball competition, a movie marathon, or a rousing round of pool? That’s why we’ve outfitted our inside as invitingly as our outside: Villa Mimosa is home to a game room with foosball (table football) and pool (billiards), a living room with a theater-style sound system, and plenty of comfortable seating around a big flat-screen TV, Blu-ray player, multi-channel cable TV, and an extensive DVD collection.
♠♠♠ PRIVATE (AND WE MEAN PRIVATE) SWIMMING POOL ♠♠♠
Pools are almost standard in balmy Central Florida, but privacy isn’t: Look around, and you’ll notice that most backyard pools have zero privacy: There are neighbors beside you (yes, both sides), behind you, and all around. In peripheral-vision view of your cannonball, your sunbathing, your family’s rousing game of Marco Polo.
Not so at Villa Mimosa. Here, you have total pool privacy. Read it again: Total. Pool. Privacy.
A privacy fence surrounds your very own south-facing (in other words, sun-drenched), 32-foot pool, which means you can cannonball, sunbathe, and Marco Polo to your heart’s content, without worrying about the neighbors. That’s what we call relaxing.
As always, we care as much about safety as we do about fun. We keep your little ones safe with a pool fence to protect our youngest guests from taking a swim on their own. There are also pool alarms on the doors that lead to the pool and hot tub.
♠♠♠ LUXURIATE IN THE HOT TUB ♠♠♠
Beneath the inky, star-spotted Florida sky, a bubbling spa awaits you. Yes, you! The one who’s dreaming of a real, get-away-from-it-all kind of vacation.
Look, let’s be honest: You’re going to walk A LOT at Disney. If you’re here with kids, make that run a lot. Miles and miles a day, most likely.
So, imagine coming back to your home-away-from-home. The kids are in bed. The wine is poured. And yes, the hot tub is bubbling.
Sink in. Relax and enjoy those massaging jets. Slip in a little more. Ahh, perfect! The water’s warm, even in winter. Take a sip of that wine. Now, look up. How many constellations can you spot through the fine mesh ceiling?
♠♠♠ FAST, WHOLE-HOME WIFI INTERNET ♠♠♠
Need to stay connected? No problem. Our high-speed WiFi internet covers the entire home, and even extends out over the pool deck. So go on, upload that poolside selfie.
♠♠♠ BEDS FOR EVERYONE ♠♠♠
Whether you’re traveling with adult siblings, grandparents, or a boatload of kids, our bedrooms are up to the challenge.
In addition to Villa Mimosa’s spacious master suite, you’ll find a queen bedroom, double bedroom, and two twin bedrooms, for a total seven beds. And for the littlest members of your group, we’re happy to accommodate with cots and cribs. Here are the details:
Master Bedroom: Looks out onto the garden and offers a king-size bed and multi-channel cable TV. The attached master bathroom offers a shower, sunken corner bath and Jacuzzi, and twin vanity basins. There is a large walk-in closet with a safe to store your valuables.
Queen Bedroom: Looks out onto the lanai and pool, and offers a queen-size bed and wall-mounted, multi-channel cable TV. Shares a bathroom with the double bedroom.
Double Bedroom: A large bedroom with a double bed, wall-mounted, multi-channel cable TV, large closet and plenty of storage space. Shares a bathroom with the queen bedroom.
Twin Bedroom #1: Offers two single beds with a large closet and cable TV. Shares a bathroom with the second twin bedroom.
Twin Bedroom #2: Offers two single beds with a large closet and loads of storage space. Shares a bathroom with the first twin bedroom.
Plenty of towels and high quality linens are provided for all five bedrooms.
♠♠♠ THEMED GAME ROOM ♠♠♠
Your family is going to love Villa Mimosa’s game room, which comes equipped with a top-quality slate-bed pool table and a foosball table. Who’s ready for a little friendly competition?
♠♠♠ FULLY EQUIPPED KITCHEN ♠♠♠
There are some truly excellent restaurants in the Disney area, including a handful within minutes of Villa Mimosa, but we know you don’t want to eat out for every, single meal.
Even if you’re just buttering a bagel or pouring some cereal in the morning, you’ll appreciate Villa Mimosa’s fully equipped kitchen. There’s even a breakfast nook, so you can keep an eye on the kids while you make your own breakfast. A separate dining table, located between the kitchen and living area, offers additional seating for 6.
Your kitchen boasts the standard oven, stove cooktop/hob, fridge/freezer, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, and dishwasher. But, we’ve also outfitted you with tons of pots and pans, dinnerware (plates, glasses, flatware, etc. for up to 11 guests), and a host of other kitchen equipment, gadgets and doodads. Poke around when you get here, and you’ll immediately feel at home.
♠♠♠ LOTS OF AMENITIES FOR KIDS ♠♠♠
Parents know: Packing for a vacation with kids, especially little kids, is the worst. The absolute worst. There’s no way you can fit all the required baby gear in your suitcases, but of course, you need your littlest family members to be safe and happy while traveling.
We care about your children (and your sanity), so we’ve stocked all our villas with high chairs, strollers, pack-and-plays, and other baby gear. Whatever you need, let us know. We have lots of baby and toddler accoutrements on hand, so we’ll be happy to accommodate.
♠♠♠ RECENT UPGRADES ♠♠♠
We take great pride and joy in our vacation homes. That’s why personally inspect our rentals at least twice a year, to be sure that everything adheres to our high standards. What’s more, every year, we improve and upgrade our villas.
To us, “good enough” is never good enough; we want our vacation rentals to exceed your expectations.
♠♠♠ FULLY LICENSED AND INSURED ♠♠♠
We are fully licensed at both the county and state levels. First and foremost, that means we follow the rules and prioritize your safety: We’ve installed fire extinguishers, smoke alarms, and emergency lighting in all the right places. We maintain tight safety measures at our pools. And all our homes are subject to periodic inspection, by the county and state, so you know that we’re still up-to-date on those safety requirements.
Our vacation rentals are legal and above-board. We pay our taxes. You can check our existence in the public records. Feel free to ask how. We’re happy to share.
♠♠♠ TRUSTWORTHY ♠♠♠
We get it – you don’t know us from the next guy. And simply trusting that we’re trustworthy? You weren’t born yesterday.
But trustworthy, we are – and we’ll do our best to prove it, well before you commit to booking. It starts with our response times (often within minutes, never more than a few hours). We go out of our way to answer all of your questions. And we’re honest about it; we won’t fib or exaggerate. We won’t tell you a home is 10 minutes from Disney, when it’s really 30 minutes in normal traffic.
What’s more, we’re legal, we’re licensed, and we’re insured – and we can prove it. (Just ask. We’ll happily show you where and how to verify.)
Further proof that we deliver on our promises? One of our homes, Villa Palmera, was invited into HomeAway’s exclusive Luxury Rentals site. We were chosen from among thousands of Disney homes, and represent one of just nine 4-bedroom luxury homes in the entire Disney area. In fact, there are only 60 luxury home rentals listed in all of Florida. We’re honored to be one of them!
And if that’s not enough, just have a look at our reviews. You can’t fake the trust our renters have in us!

♠♠♠ A STRESS-FREE WELCOME ♠♠♠
We may pride ourselves on personalized service, but part of our quality promise is actually just the opposite: We’ve taken the personal out of check-in. Forget having to meet us at the office, on our terms, during our business hours.
We’re happy to say, we’ve gone digital – at least, as far as check-in is concerned. All of our rentals have keyless entry, so there are no lockboxes, no keys to collect, and no stressful meet-ups. (We all know how fun those are, especially when you throw in elements like a delayed flight.)
When you book with us, we’ll send you a digital welcome guide, packed with helpful information about your rental and the surrounding area. And of course, we’ll let you know how to check-in.
♠♠♠ PRIVATELY OWNED AND LOCALLY MANAGED ♠♠♠
Have you ever lived a Vacation Rental Nightmare? It’s 9 p.m. and the toilet’s overflowing. Or you’re fresh out of clean clothes and the washing machine breaks down mid-cycle. Or perhaps you’re locked out, or you can’t find the wine opener, or you just need a late-night restaurant recommendation.
You call, and you call, and you call. But the property manager doesn’t pick up. Or, she does but she’s based across the country and has no local, emergency contacts to help you tonight. You’ll have to wait until tomorrow; they’ll be there sometime between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m.
Suddenly, your vacation has morphed into something very different than the relaxing escape you had hoped it would be.
We know that the details – the big AND little details – can make or break your vacation. That’s why we’re committed to you, to your experience. We’re local – in just a few minutes, we can be at your front door – and we’re available 24/7, every day of the year, via phone, text or email. What’s more, we have the local professional contacts to handle any emergency, no matter the hour. We’ll get that toilet fixed, tonight.
Oh, and as we mentioned, we’ve been in the Disney area for 15 years, so we’re also good for those restaurant recommendations. (Ask us where to find the best cheesy chips.)
♠♠♠ FAMILY REUNIONS AND BIG GROUPS WELCOME ♠♠♠

This villa is great! It has plenty of room, it's very clean, has everything you need! The swimming pool is a good size! Stephen the owner was most helpful before we went and during our stay! He responds quickly to emails and nothing was too much trouble! It's about twenty mins from Disney, we got the combo park tickets which included all of Disney, universal, aquatica, seaworld and Busch gardens, all of which were great! If I go back to Florida I would def stay in one of Stephens villas and would recommend to anyone!
Very clean, kitchen pottery is provided, plenty of towels as well. Make sure to bring your own toilet paper, paper towels, dish soap and laundry soap, and also make sure you have your entrance code on hand when arriving to the house otherwise alarm will go off for minutes!!!!
I have nothing but good comments about the house.
Stephen Ward I whish I could meet you in person! She is a helpful and great person, answered all my questions within hours.
Will rent Villa Mimosa for sure if we go back to Florida again.
Great property, owner very accomadating
Our family had a wonderful time at this villa! It is exactly as shown and everything was perfect. The house was very clean and well kept up. It was also stocked with everything we could have needed. We were pleasantly surprised at how comfortable the beds were and also the amount of towels including beach towels. This is our first experience renting a home to stay in and I was really surprised at how easy it was. The owner Stephen was great about answering all my questions. The pool and spa are fantastic and were my grandchildren's favorite part of the entire trip. We had the pool heated and they were able to swim even on cooler days. Everything was great and we will be renting this villa again! We highly recommend it!
The house is exactly as described and shown in the pictures. It was perfect for our large family. Everything was very clean when we arrived, which made it easy to relax after a long day of traveling. The door code also made the house convenient to access without the hassle of keys. Our kids were really excited to see a Christmas tree set up! The beds were comfortable and there was plenty of seating room to relax and have family meals together. We also requested a BBQ grill, which worked out great.
The adults and kids all enjoyed the heated pool and hot tub. There were even pool toys already there, so we didn't have to bring or purchase any. Even though the pool alarm took some getting used to, it helped put our minds at ease with the safety of our kids.
The house location was perfect for traveling to various places around Florida. Both Kennedy Space Center and Clearwater Marine Aquarium were only about 90 minutes away. It took us less than 20 minutes to reach Disney.
The only part of our stay that was less than perfect is that not all neighbors observed the designated "quiet hours". There were some rambunctious parties throughout the week. I'm not sure how strict the Homeowners Association is with enforcement.
Regardless of the noise, the house was great and we had a wonderful stay!
♠♠♠ LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! ♠♠♠
If you’re looking for a great location, but refuse to compromise on space and convenience, on comforts and affordability – welcome. Five-bedroom Villa Mimosa is one of the larger homes in Indian Point, a popular community located just a hop, skip and a jump from Disney. (See bullet points, below, for drive times.)
Your home-away-from-home sits on a spacious corner lot, and that means plenty of front yard room for the kids to run, jump or turn cartwheels. That is, when they’re not splashing in the backyard pool!
Villa Mimosa’s location is just minutes away from all the necessities, including an ALDI and a 24-hour Walmart Supercenter (one minute!), perfect for grabbing a last-minute pool toy to keep the kids entertained while you enjoy a leisurely meal under the stars. (Thank you, screened lanai!) And speaking of food, there are plenty of restaurants close by, as well, from big-name chains to best-kept Kissimmee secrets. (Ask about our favorites!)
We’re adamant about ethics and honest rental descriptions, so we’ll never embellish how close our villas are to the destinations that matter to you. So, let’s cut to the chase: Villa Mimosa is located about 10 miles to Disney. In are-we-there-yet?!? terms, this means:
• Hollywood Studios and Epcot: 20 minutes (faster, if you hit the green lights!)
• Animal Kingdom and Sea World: 25 minutes
• Universal Studios: 35 minutes
• Magic Kingdom 30 minutes and
• Busch Gardens and the Kennedy Space Center: Just over an hour
