About Jancis Shepherd

You are invited to share the Shepherd family holiday home for your vacation. We bought this home in 2001 and have had many fabulous holidays with our 3 daughters and their friends.

Jancis Shepherd purchased this villa in 2001

Why Jancis Shepherd chose Kissimmee

We chose VDL in Winter Garden as it is safe, secure, restful and well located for Disney, Universal and the many restaurants, shopping Malls and local, State Parks which we enjoy. Having stayed in both smaller homes and larger homes we realised that a successful ingredient fro a holiday is having enough space to be with your family and friends but also to be able to have a large enough home to have personal down time. This is a lspacious house where you will feel comfortable and relaxed, many 3 bed room properties are tiny and cramped and do not give the feeling of relaxation you desire for restful holiday.

What makes this villa unique

A spacious, comfortable, well decorated and maintained home with all amenities including Wi Fi. We also have a freshwater drinking filter system so you do not need to buy bottled water.

Beautiful home!

We enjoyed our stay at Jancis and Tony's home! It was clean and comfortable. The neighborhood was peaceful and relaxing. The home was equipped with most everything you would want. We look forward to returning next year!

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! Short drive to major attractions!

  • 5 of 5

This location (just off Route 192) was convenient to all the DISNEY parks and SeaWorld! The home is super spacious -- almost too big if that is possible! The owner was excellent in communicating prior to visiting and had details in a printable document - super convenient! Document included recommended excursions that were family friendly! The amenities included several pools and a hot tub which we used often. Pool was never too crowded and finding lounge chairs was quite easy at any time of the day -- even with our large family. Quietness of the community, allowed morning walks within the complex or a morning cup of coffee in the screened lanai. We visited over the holiday season and was thrilled to be offered a Christmas tree and decorations! This owner is a top notch owner giving attention to every detail! We will definitely stay again!

The best vacation villa!

  • 5 of 5

The villa was impeccably clean, spacious, comfortable, affordable, and well stocked.

The villa is located in a quiet, safe, gated community. It is very friendly, boasts excellent ammenities, and is strategically located within driving distance to major attractions and golf courses.

The owners were very helpful and provided excellent communication during my entire trip. 

It was a home away from home feeling, but I was on vacation! I would recommend their villa to anyone traveling to the orlando area.

Nice home-like accommodation

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the home and the location. It was convenient to many restaurants, shopping and to the Disney parks. We also enjoyed the quiet area and the pools. It was so much nicer to be in a home rather than a hotel room.
