About the property

Bungalow, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-7)

We have owned the home since 2004 and have spent many happy days here, and (hopefully) have helped the vast majority of our guests to have a fabulous Florida holiday, and many excellent reviews and comments in our guest book.

The bungalow is approximately 1640 sq feet in size with a lounge / dining area, fully fitted kitchen with breakfast area, fully screened porch with patio table and chairs, cottage suite and TV. The lounge has a 37 inch HDTV with cable channels and there are two portable TVs for use, plus a TV in the rear porch.

The master bathroom is huge with a large round tub, separate shower and twin vanity units. The master bedroom and guest bedroom both have queen size beds with built in closets, both having new mattress sets in 2012, and the third bedroom has twin over full bunk bed, ideal for the kids.

The master bathroom has been refurbished (2012) and we put new luxurious sofas, (three seater and a loveseat, plus a recliner chair, in the lounge (2012). New carpets have been fitted in the lounge and master bedoom (late 2011) and in the queen guest bedroom (2012).

Externally there is a carport and shed and a west facing patio area to the rear of the shed with all weather furniture, and a view of the lake, and the most beautiful Florida sunsets.

There is a community pool just a couple of minutes from the home, which is usually quiet. If you want to mingle, there are two other pools, just a short distance in the other direction, at the main reception area, where you will also find all of the amenities such as the pool room, sauna, play area etc.

The community is about 50/50 residential and vacation homes, and we have found it to be very friendly and the gated (staffed)entrance gives that added feeling of security. Although we have since bought a pool home, we still stay at Vista out of choice sometimes, because we love the relaxed, friendly lifestyle there.

Keywords: Three bed, two bath, three pools, sauna, tennis, fishing, gated community, wifi internet, cable TV, sat nav provided.

About Sandra H.

Jeff and I bought Vista after staying at a friends villa in 2003. We'd been visiting Florida since 1990, but just fell in love with the community at Vista so decided to buy a home there and have never looked back. It was a big step for we cautious Brits to take but we have never regretted a moment of it!

Because we visited the Orlando area so many times before we bought it, we knew what people were looking for on a trip to Florida, so we have tried to provide as much as possible to make it a home from home, after a busy day at the theme parks.

Sandra H. purchased this bungalow in 2004

Why Sandra H. chose Kissimmee

One of the things we liked about Vista was the fact that it was close to Disney, but in a relatively quiet area on the US 192. There has been some retail development since then, restaurants supermarkets etc, which have added to the amenities without detracting from the area. We also liked the feeling of security and the friendly atmosphere. Having looked at several other homes during the course of a long day, we walked into this one last viewing, and although it was in a sorry state we just fell in love with it's location and the rear aspect, especially the porch! We have spent many, many, hours bringing it up to a high standard.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Would just like to say a very big thank you for all your help with our last minute holiday. We absolutely loved your villa, our favourite part was the back porch which we spent 90% of our time in it, we had a really lovely time there from the moment we arrived I can't explain how lovely it felt your home had such a great vibe to it, we really felt at home there and certainly didn't want to leave, as I'm sure you could tell from the fact we stayed extra days!

Once again thanks for everything and we hope very much to stay there again some time.

We were very happy with our stay. Plenty of room for our family & then some! The house is nestled in a nice little quiet community & it was just perfect! Very close to all of the parks, shopping & dozens of places to eat! Sandra was pleasant & very easy to communicate with. I will Definitely stay here again when we go back to Orlando.

Owner's Response: What a lovely title for a review! Many thanks for taking the time to write one. As you say there is plenty of room in the home - much more spacious than you would expect, and it is an ideal location. So pleased that you enjoyed your stay - we do intend to sell it this year but hopefully it will be staying in the family and if so you would be more than welcome to return!

Perfect home right on Disney's doorstep

  • 5 of 5

Having previously stayed on Vista Del Lago, we knew the area but this was our first visit to this wonderful home. Sandra was amazing to deal with & the property is in immaculate condition & very welcoming after a long day at the parks. The house has everything you could possibly need during a stay & is located very close to the Disney parks. There are a large selection of shops & restaurants within a 5 minute drive, which is one of the main reasons we love Vista. Also, there are 3 swimming pools on the complex, all just a short walk from the house. We would certainly love to stay here again when we return. Thank you for letting us share your beautiful home.

Could not have been happier. The price was awesome and the place was super clean :) Sandra and Jeff certainly are well organized and are very responsive. They have restored my faith in HomeAway as I usually use ownerdirect. Thanks for the great stay.

Great place for a family of 6 enjoying Disney

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this house for our Disney vacation. It was so nice to have 3 separate bedrooms and plenty of living room space. Easy drive to the parks without traffic!! It took us about 10 minutes to get to Animal Kingdom. The other parks were about 5-10 minutes longer. The owner provided everything we needed and replied quickly to our questions. We would definitely stay here again.
