About Sarah & Ken Elder
Who knew when we bought our first home 12 years ago that it would lead us down the path of a new business venture? We certainly had no idea, but here we are a decade later welcoming guests to beautiful Orlando vacation homes and loving every minute. Imagine having a job where you help plan exciting and amazing vacations and get to deal with happy guests all the time! It doesn’t get much better! We spent 28 years living on an idyllic Greek Island where we owned and ran our own restaurant in a busy coastal village. Time eventually caught up with us and we left our beautiful Greek Island with a lifetime of memories. We now split our time between Florida and our ancestral home in Scotland. We spend half the year overlooking a beautiful Scottish Loch and the other half on Disney’s doorstep in Florida. Who says you can’t have your cake and eat it too! With Pixie Dust on top too! We have 3 rental homes and have a firm commitment to provide our guests with wonderful relaxing and carefree vacations in beautiful homes. We look forward to being part of your vacation memories.
Sarah & Ken Elder purchased this House in 2015
Why Sarah & Ken Elder chose Four Corners
We already had a 5 bedroom pool home and a 3 bedroom manufactured home, so we decided we'd love a home on a lake to complete our little portfolio. As they don't come on the market very often, we waited and waited. And waited. Two years! We eventually came across this gorgeous manufactured home and immediately fell in love with the lake view. Perfect! Just what we'd been searching for. We already loved having one home in Vista del Lago, so having a second in the same community was perfect. But what a sad interior. It was dated, in desperate need of some TLC and the layout was pretty awful. We planned what we could change to create our dream home. Then we spent 2 months totally remodeling it and loved every minute! We picked out colors, furniture, carpets and shopped till we dropped. There wasn't a single item of the old house left. Not even a trash can or spoon. We are thrilled with the results and hope you love it as much as we do.
What makes this House unique
The waterfront position has to be one of the best features. It's so relaxing sitting out on the deck in the evening overlooking the lake with glistening sunsets reflecting on the calm waters. It doesn't get much better! The three bedrooms with 3 bathrooms is also another feature we love. We often spend vacation time with two other couples and we love the fact we all have a bedroom with a private bathroom each. And each couple has a king or queen. Oh, and we absolutely love the 70 inch HDTV! And the fact we can walk to one of our favorite local restaurants! Manny's is a hugely popular restaurant with both locals and visitors and we're lucky to have a home within walking distance! At the entrance of the community, just a 2 minute walk away, is a family bakery, dominoes pizza, a Chinese restaurant and Subway.

The house is well organized and clean. We found everything we were looking for in a place in Sara and Ken's house. The view is awesome, the balcony and the decoration. If you are a big fan of Netflix like me, they have such huge full HD T.V.s that you can really enjoy watching. Sara was super nice and get back to us whenever we needed. Highly recommend the place!!
Had one of the best times in this house! So clean and nice. The lake view in the yard was one of the best views. Sarah and Ken are so nice, and Sarah got back to me right away when I had questions. Me and my boys enjoyed staying there so much, that we didn’t wanna leave. Sarah had a very nice care package for when we arrived. The only thing that I think the house needs is blinds on the sliding door to the back patio. Can be a little eerie at night. LOL. This house is definitely our top chioce for future visits! Thanks again Sarah and Ken
More than we expected!
Ken and Sarah have thought of everything! Our stay was perfect. We left a part of our hearts there! Lots of memories were made, and we cannot wait to come back and make some more ASAP. Thank you for a wonderfully fun and relaxing stay, Ken and Sarah!
Everything exactly as described, all (and more) you need when travelling with family. Absolutely recommended and worth each dollar.
Thanks for your lovely review, so pleased you found everything as we described and you had all you needed.
It was a pleasure having you stay and we hope to welcome you back someday soon.
Thanks! Sarah & Ken :)
It's all in the details!
I have to be honest, I had a bit of hard time convincing my family that the amount of money was worth it because upon entering the subdivison we saw that all the homes were doublewide trailers. Not what we expected at all. But upon entering the house it was exactly as the pictures describe it. Sarah really thought of everything! Her attention to detail is what makes this house an amazing stay. After a great nights rest - all in doubt agreed. The house is super clean and since I was sick during our vacation, I really loved all the naps I took on the comfy beds and read some wonderful books on the history of Disney. My husband, a kid at heart, enjoyed playing games in the Harry Potter room. Sarah even made sure we had essentials for breakfast such as bread, milk, coffee and a sweet birthday card surprise for my dad. She was super attentitive to anything we needed and was really concerned that we had all we needed. My husband went fishing every day and I enjoyed walking by the lake and seeing all the fruit trees. My parents enjoyed the back porch and the view of the lake. Overall this place was perfect. I made a believer of doubters!
So sorry you were surprised when you arrived! It does say on our listing, website, arrival information and in our correspondence that we have a manufactured home, so I'll take a look at how we present that in future.
But it’s wonderful to hear you loved the house and made believers! As you discovered it’s what’s on the inside that makes it special! We love the community too, it’s so wonderfully friendly and peaceful.
Great to know your parents and husband enjoyed the lake too, we just love sitting out there enjoying the peace after the bustle of Disney! We hope we can welcome you back again soon. Thanks :)
