About The Owner

My husband and my two dogs, Pacino and Pesci are my favorite people to travel with. We try and take them with us to our home in Kissimmee as much as possible to get away from the cold weather in Boston. Steve works for the airlines so we get to travel for free which is a HUGE perk! Some homeowners can only visit 1-2 times a year...we go down at least 2 times a month to check on things, update the house and tinker around...

The Owner purchased this house in 2005

Why The Owner chose Kissimmee

We bought our home in the Indian Ridge section of Kissimmee in 2005 because we needed a place to go to when the winters here in Boston got too snowy and frigid. We were coming down to Fla quite frequently and renting hotels and paying a fortune. Buying this home was the best thing we ever did. It's the closest community to Disney and the area is quiet and well maintained.

What makes this house unique

We love relaxing by the pool with a drink and taking a swim at night. You can't do that after 10pm at most hotels. We are pet friendly (with certain restrictions and rules) and the dogs enjoy laying out in the sun and playing in the large open area. The home is located in a quiet area...but yet you drive two miles up Old Lake Wilson Rd and you have all your restaurants, shops, activities, etc...Great great location!

Excellent pick for a family vacaction!!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our trip to Orlando and a very large part of our enjoyment was due to finding Doreen's vacation rental. Nice neighborhood and excellent location...super close to the Disney parks and a quick, easy drive to Universal Studios. We even took a drive to Tampa and it was an easy trip from the house as well. Very clean, spacious and has all the necessities. We were only a party of 3 but with all the rooms and beds in this house you can easily fit double and thensome the amount of people! Doreen was very quick to respond to all my inquiries and was always very pleasant. We hope to visit again soon!

Amazing Vacation home close to Disney!!

  • 5 of 5

Doreen was so easy to communicate with. Quickly responded and so kind. We stayed a week in this lovely home and we were so happy to be able to bring our dog with us. Not only that but the home was very clean and affordable. The neigborhood was so nice and quiet. And we didnt have to drive far for groceries or go eat out or even Disney was right there. Will be returning here in the future.

Great value and Great location

  • 5 of 5

Doreen was great to work with and very kind. Her home was spacious and clean. The pool was great to have just steps away. The location was perfect for visiting Disney and the neighborhood was quiet. One thing I will mention, which may not be important to others, is the home's a/c needs to remain at 75 or higher or it will freeze over. We went during a very hot week and we are used to having our home very cool at night so it would have been easier to sleep for us had it been much cooler.

Owner's Response: Hi Angie, Wonderful to work with you..so glad you enjoyed your stay. Yes, it was a scorcher of a week when you visited, the humidity was higher than the actual temp. Ouch! The a/c unit is brand new and the instructions that came with the unit suggest not to lower it below 75 degrees. When you called and asked if it would freeze if you put it down a notch or two, I told you I highly doubted it and told you to lower it. We never heard back from you so I assumed it was fine. I also suggested to make sure the sliders leading to the pool stay closed to keep the temp in the house cool. We're going down next week for a min vacation, hopefully the temps go back in the high 80's...101 is a little too hot for me. Thanks again, Doreen

Disney Vacay

  • 4 of 5

15 minutes/3 miles from the main Disney gates. Everything was taken care of. The house had everything we needed while we were away from our homes. Tons of room available and everyone has their own space. The pool was a great bonus too!

The perfect get away house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house 10 years ago with our 4 smaller kids and took them to Disney which is only 5 minutes from this house. We loved how close it was at that time. We were able to come back and have the kids take naps and grab a bite to eat and then go back to the parks. The kids thought it was awesome to have their own private pool. The house was plenty big for a large family. We just went back There 10 years later and was so happy that Doreen still owned it. She keeps the place so immaculate. It looks just as nice this time or even better. She thinks of everything that people may need and it is there. We stayed with 3 couples this time since our daughters were now varsity players in high school and played at the ESPN Center and we had a great time. Relaxing by the pool and just enjoying the sun. The 2 other couples couldn't believe how nice of a place it was. Doreen it wonderful to work with. She's a great person!! I would so recommend this house to anyone who I know that would for sure take good care of it and not trash the place. Doreen takes pride in this house as you can tell by the way it is taken care of.

Owner's Response: Hi Kim, I didn't realize it was 10 years since your last visit. I'm sure it's because I'm a Red Sox fan and your husband is so anti-Red Sox LOL it was a pleasure working with you guys, yes,even him and we hope you come back again soon. Thanks for taking care of my house. Love you guys

We had a wonderful time

  • 5 of 5

The house is very clean and nice. We had a great time while at the house. The neighborhood is quiet, the pool was nice to sit around during the day, the covered pool area is great to enjoy, the house is a very big size for a larger size. Thank you for allowing our dogs and us to stay. We look forward to staying with you again!
