About Lois Hatteberg

As retired teachers we have enjoyed many travel opportunities including Alaska, Hawaii, Virginia, Mexico, Myrtle Beach, St. Maarten, St. Thomas, Las Vegas, Texas and Florida. After many trips to Florida, we decided the time was right to purchase our second home. The Kissimmee area has so much to offer that we knew we wanted to be a part of the community.

Lois Hatteberg purchased this house in 2010

So much better than staying in a hotel!

  • 5 of 5

Lots of space, privacy, pool is gorgeous and private. Close to stores and restaurants. We did Sea world and Aquatica. Not too far but traffic on the way back, during rush hour, resulted in a slow ride home. Played ping pong every night in the garage!

I hadn't noticed on the website that there was a washer and dryer, but was fantastic to go home with a suitcase full of clean clothes. Would pack lighter next time.

Enjoyed the property and would definitely stay again.

Owner's Response: We are glad you had a great vacation, and hope you come back to stay again soon! There are several routes to take to the theme parks. Some are better than others. Traffic volume, accidents, etc. make it unpredictable. We are glad you enjoyed the amenities in our home!

Nice Stay

  • 5 of 5

The property is well kept, clean and you can tell very loved by its owners! We enjoyed our stay while visiting Florida with our daughter, son-in-law and two year old grandson. It was a little farther from the park than we should have picked for traveling back and forth twice each day, but the welcome feeling made it worth the trip. Pool was a great temp and gave us lots of fun and relaxation in between park time. The neighbors did have a party one night which concerned us when we first got back from dinner, but they were quiet, polite and caused no problems. Thank you for letting us stay in your second home!

The villa was not in an area we would have considered a holiday area - rather it is situated in a residential area. Wasn't what we were looking for. Internally the villa was 3 * quality at best and the linen / bedding should have been better quality. We checked out the next day and moved elsewhere .

Owner's Response: I am truly sorry you were disappointed. You did rent our 'home'. Homes are located in residential areas. Our pictures on the website are very accurate as well as the location being in a residential area. We have included many extras in our home, and as our previous reviews show, our guests have appreciated the location and the amenities. I really do not know how I could have made you happy because it sounds like you were looking for a completely different type of property.

Great villa and close to all attractions

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for 11 nights in August with the family (2 adults & 2 children 9 & 11).

The villa is in a good location and close to parks, supermarkets, restaurants, etc).

It was very clean inside and out and had all you could possible need for a holiday, the owners even made sure there were basic groceries stocked in the fridge which was a nice touch after a long journey.

We all made use of the pool, which again was well maintained, had daily ping pong tournaments and used the bbq on several occasions.

Wouldn't hesitate is recommending this home, thank you xx

Will definitely return to this villa

  • 4 of 5

We have been going to Orlando every year since 2006 and the location of this property has been the best yet. Travel time to all the parks was easy, particularly Universal and Sea World, and we didn't have to navigate interstate 4 at all, which is a bit like the M25 at rush hour! Villa was lovely with fantastic pool and out door space with amazing view of the lake. This villa has everything you need for a fab holiday and the excellent welcome pack was a lovely unexpected surprise.
