About Joe and Petra

My wife Petra and I have been married since 2003 and we have two children, Sebastian, 11 and Natalie, 9. We acquired the home you will be (are) staying in April of 2011, after vacationing in Kissimmee the month prior. We had such an amazing time visiting theme parks, rollerblading in the neighbourhood, and just spending quality family time around the pool. During our visit in 2011, we hired a real estate agent, viewed a few homes and low and behold....What we love about the area is that it has something for everyone. The theme parks,as we soon learned, are designed for family fun. Both of my parents and my mother-in-law have been to the theme parks and have thoroughly enjoyed their experience; they still talk about how enjoyable it was to see the children having so much fun. The area is also known for it's abundance of excellent golf courses. Right behind our home, for example, beyond the green space, is Mystic Dunes Golf Club. You are just minutes away from great golf at this championship course and many others in the area. Pack a lunch and head out to Daytona Beach or Cocoa beach for the day where you can park on the beach and enjoy the sunset or, venture out to the Kennedy Space Centre in Cape Canaveral, all just one hour or so away.

Over the past four years we have gradually renovated the villa to the point you see it now. Although we have a few more projects to complete and some decor to update, we hope you will enjoy the many enhancements we have made to the property thus far. We strive to make our property stand out amongst the many properties available. We believe that the time families and friends share together are special; so too should be the home they are staying at! We hope you enjoy your stay at our family vacation home and wish you many wonderful memories.

Sincerely,

The Roccatani Family

Joe and Petra purchased this villa in 2011

We had an amazing time at this well maintained house! Extremely close to Disney and Univeral!

  • 5 of 5

The Property was very clean and well maintained! We had a fantastic time using the pool, hot tub and the outdoor space. We were just 10 minutes from Disney and only 25 minutes Universal Studios! We had plenty of room for for everyone to be together, yet plenty of privacy when we needed it. Joe was amazing to deal with and responded to any questions pre-vacation we had. This property if very private and quiet. We created so many wonderful memories with our friends and family! We wished we could have stayed longer!

Owner's Response: Hi Darren, thank you for your review. It was a pleasure hosting you and your party for the Holidays! I must agree our villa is very conveniently located close to Disney and the Interstate (I-4) on ramp is only a 5 minute drive. Certainly saves precious time when time is limited allowing guests more time to enjoy attractions and quality time together. Pleased to know the villa made your vacation that much more special. Sincerely, Petra and joe

Wonderful time had by all

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the house very much. We had a few problems the first couple of days we were there. Once everything was taken care of we had a lot of fun. The location was close to everything we wanted to do. Working with Joe was very pleasant. He took care of things immediately. Definitely highly recommend the home to anyone.

Thank you for sharing your property

Beautiful, clean and spacious house, very centrally located to visit parks

  • 5 of 5

My adult children, daughters-in-law and three grandchildren enjoyed this very spacious and comfortable house. Everything is exactly as pictured, very clean and comfortable beds plenty of linens and towels. Their were 10 of us and every one had a bed, no need for air mattresses if you are visiting with a large family, large common areas, yet plenty of privacy. The owners have thought of everything, blow dryers, in the bathroom, espresso and american coffee makers, crib, high chair, changing table. Big refrigerator with excellent ice maker. Large clean pool and screened patio area, really appreciated the pool alarm, especially since we had three small children with us.

The owner, Joe, was a real pleasure to deal with, very professional and prompt in responding to all inquiries and messages.

Many vacation rentals in this area have absentee owners and you are left dealing with large, impersonal, and not always responsive booking and property management companies who have no vested interest in the properties other than turning them over quickly.

We had a minor medical situation with one of my sons, I contacted Joe and he was very helpful and accommodating. A true gentleman, we felt like we were staying at friends house. We will definitely contact Joe, the next time we are in the area to stay at his place.

We have been staying at this villa for a number of years now and we have never been disappointed, the villa is well equipment and clean and about 10 mins from Disney, and pretty central to everything you would need. Highly recommend this villa for anyone visiting Florida.

Perfect vacation home for a family getaway.

  • 5 of 5

The property itself was exactly as described. It is conveniently located in a quiet and pleasant neighbourhood with close and easy access to main highways. We found the location to be very private. The home was spacious and clean and equipped with modern major appliances. The proximity of the house to Disney World and in particular Disney Springs gave us lots of opportunities to take advantage of these venues. The well maintained and sizeable pool was a highlight of the stay. The owner, Joe, was more than helpful. Not in just making the arrangements for our stay, but also with tips and advice for making our stay in Florida more enjoyable.

In fact, it brings me back to Florida in spirit even if it's for a few minutes.We are glad the villa met your needs and that the pool was one of the many highlights of your trip. We look forward to hosting you again in the future. Sincerely, Joe and Petra

NIce family home near Disney

  • 5 of 5

As a former rental home owner I found that Joe looked after us with great detail and concern for our holiday. He is a genuine guy and provides a really comfortable and nice vacation home. It is easily accessible to the attractions and restaurants. You do need a car but you do need one where ever you are. We slept well and depending on what you want to do you can BBQ, provide your your own meals and just chill out - its up to you. My wife says the washing machine were top notch so you may not need to take as much luggage as you think. Good value and thanks Joe and Petta for the use of your home.
