Originally from San Francisco, California we grew up visiting the original Disneyland in Los Angeles. After visiting it with our kids when they were 2 years old, we made a point to visit Disneyworld while they still looked under 3 years old. We loved Disneyworld and Florida so much that we decided to move closer to Mickey's World. We are very much in love with everything Disney and have chosen Central Florida as a home base because we enjoy visiting the theme parks and the beaches. We prefer to spend time here during the low season when the lines at Disney and Universal are much shorter. Our children are homeschooled so we enjoy the luxury of being able to live in a few different places. My husband has family in Mexico, Spain, New York and California. I have family in California, Chicago and Japan.
Jessica Yamamoto-Molina purchased this estate in 2013
We purchased this property because we are in love with the Oak trees. The landscape took our breathe away and continues to do so every time we wake up and look out the sliding glass windows. Having direct private access to the lake is an added bonus. Makison Island is not too far of a ride away and you can easily dock there and enjoy the nature trail that circumnavigates the island sanctuary.
Everyone loves the heated indoor pool and the fact that they can swim day or night. Since this property is right on Lake Tohopekaliga, if you care enough to spend some time outside in the yard, you will find a wealth of wildlife, including: American bald eagles, buzzards, woodpeckers, deer, sandhill cranes, owls, armadillos, turtles, birds and a wide variety of butterflies.
The owners are often away traveling as the kids are 'world schooled' and during the summers they enjoy a beach house 2 hours away. Occasionally you can find them staying in the detached cottage (actually it's a yurt, for those who know what that is) on the property. It's plenty far away from the main house and this allows for any necessary work on the property to get completed without disturbing your vacation. If this is a concern, please inquire as this (travel/maintenance) schedule is often made well in advance.
Property was clean and well maintained. Was close to the various parks . Swimming pool was nice. I did not let smaller children swim. Seems as if pool was made for older kids and adults. Enjoyed stay. The only problem was getting T V programs back on line . It was taken care of in a timely manner . Next time we visit the area I will more than likely be staying there again !!!!
We had a wonderful family get together at this beautiful home! Loved , loved , loved the location and the property surrounding the home!!! The kids were in the pool whenever they were not at a theme park! There was easy acsess to everything any of us wanted to do! A few little quirks that would happen in any house , but nothing of concern, and the owner responded to all questions promply! Thank you!!
I had really really good time at Jessica's house.
Family were super nice to me, I felt happy.
House was very clean and comfortable.
Thanks for everything!I will come back soon.
Jessica's house are also good for wedding party, birthday party, and honeymoon.
We were visiting disney and looking for a place to stay. I was debating between a hotel and a house like this. I am so glad I picked this. The place has all the luxuries of a 5 star hotel while at the same time you are surrounded by nature. Its in many ways better than staying in a hotel. We had breakfast, dinner in a very homely atmosphere, something I can never forget. They also have a gym and hey you just go out and enjoy nature. The owners are amazing and made sure our stay was very comfortable. Next time I visit Florida I will never look at another place. One thing I should mention is you should book well in advance because during holidays they tend to get booked up pretty fast.
