About Bob and Karin Leinfus

Hi. We're Bob and Karin Leinfus and we've just purchased our beautiful home in Vista del Lago in Winter Garden in October 2013. We live on Long Island, New York and enjoy living by Smith Point Beach, on the Atlantic Ocean. Bob loves to go fishing in his little Boston Whaler with our son. Karin enjoys crafting, decorating and traveling. We're so happy we now have a Florida home to enjoy too. Bob grew up in Florida and has family in Winter Garden and all over Florida. We look forward to spending time with them when we're down here. Karin was born in Bremen, Germany and immigrated to America with her family when she was 7 and then grew up on Long Island. We both love to travel and take cruises. We've been all over the Caribbean, Panama Canal and up the west coast to California on our cruises. We enjoy family time together with our 3 children and their spouses and our 11 grandchildren. We came to Vista del Lago because some friends of ours owned, and still own a home in Vista. We look forward to enjoying our home and the area and meeting new friends along the way. We hope you become part of our family and the Vista family, and you come and see us. God bless you.

Bob and Karin Leinfus purchased this house in 2013

Why Bob and Karin Leinfus chose Kissimmee

We were looking for a place to buy a home and friends of ours owned a home in this community. We went down to visit and just fell in love with Vista, the people here, and all the amenities they have to offer. We found it close to Disney, where my children and their families can visit. There a so many attractions in this area, that we can never get bored with visiting it. We loved the house, the beautiful palm trees lining our street and our property, and the peaceful feel we felt when we entered the home. We loved the split floor layout plan which gives us privacy when our children are visiting us. Loved the en-suite with the garden tub for relaxing during our stay. I got excited when I saw the hibiscus, hummingbirds, and the wildlife. We knew this was the community for us and our families to enjoy. We hope you and your family will love it as much as we do. We welcome you to our paradise.

Best Vacation Ever

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time on vacation. This house was spotless when we arrived and the security guard and the administration person who we received our key card where nice and the process was so easy. The house and grounds were kept to a very high standards. We wanted for nothing as everything was at the house and on down days we utilized the two swimming pools, exercise room. Also we took my daughter to the playground. There was also tennis courts, basketball courts and so much more that we did not use. The home is so close only 4 miles to Wal-Mart which was great for shopping and very close to restaurants, shops etc.. Disney is only 5 miles and Universal 11 miles as we were close to the main roads it took no time to get to and from the parks. It was a great location, wonderful home with even toys, reading books etc.. to entertain my 6 year old. I will truly recommend this property to anyone, its a medium size, very clean and well decorated home on one level, with helpful and kind neighbours. Great Vacation

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

The villa was just what we needed, a place to relax .. Just like home... Everything was provided, the gated community is great with friendly neighbours. Aqua aerobics every day from 9 am to 10 in the community pool led by a community member.

3 weeks flew by in this environment, didn't want to leave...

Thanks Bob and Karin

For the third time we were so lucky to rent this beautyful vacation home. We are a small family of three from Denmark and we love to stay here.

The comunity is a safe and quiet place to rest. People who live here is very kind and helpful and the same goes for Karin and Bob who are the home owners. All communication has been extremely smooth and easy.

The house is very clean and you will find all the equipment you need for the family while you stay here.

We were nothing but satisfied with everything and surely we will be back.

We had a wonderful stay at this property. When we moved in we were very pleased with the place. It is very cozy and well appointed. It is conveniently located to the attractions and they have very nice pools and other amenities within the development. We would definitely recommend this property and would stay here again.

Beautiful Home and Wonderful Community!

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time ever doing a vacation rental home and I can't express enough how much I was impressed. My daughter was getting married so we stayed at the home for two weeks. The owners were wonderful and easy to work with. The home had everything you needed and the community was great. I would recommend this home to anyone. Hope to be back this coming summer.

Worth returning to!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 6'th time to Florida and our second time in this nice villa.

We enjoyed the stay just as much as the first time and the correspondance with the owners was exellent. The community is a very neat and wellkept area and our family allways feel secure and welcome when we stay here. It is so nice to have the entire villa for ourselves and we enjoy the homie environment. You will find everything you and your family need for a perfect stay here. We would love to come back!

We've just purchased our beautiful vacation home in the sought after Vista del Lago Community, a family gated community located in Phase 5, the newest section of the community. Vista is a 24/7 patrolled, gated community. Disney World is 5 miles away. Nearby is Sea World (15 miles), Universal Studios (23 miles), Wet n Wild water park (20 miles), Lego Land (30 minutes), Kennedy Space Center (70 miles), Atlantic Ocean (75 miles), outlet shopping, flea markets, thrift stores, many fine restaurants, theme parks, many golf courses and much more. You can enjoy all the amenities of the community when you're not out enjoying the sights. The house is air conditioned for your comfort, or you can take an easy walk to the pool and clubhouse to Relax on the lanai and watch the cranes walk by. Enjoy the hibiscus with the hummingbirds flying around them, or the beautiful palm-tree lined street. Whatever is your pleasure in nature, you won't be disappointed.

A suggestion if you have little ones and are going to Disney, eat breakfast at home, come back for lunch, let them nap while you take a quick dip in the pool, then go back in the afternoon for the entertainment and fireworks. Don't forget to visit downtown Disney for some real great music venues, eateries, and shopping. This is a FREE attraction and a very enjoyable evening stroll to listen to music, eat out and visit the shops they have there. We also enjoyed the Golden Corral buffet in Celebration. They have just about anything you want to eat on the menu for a reasonable price. The kids will love it too.
