Why Angie & John Stockdale chose Kissimmee

Our aim has always been to provide a comfortable vacation rental in pristine condition and somewhere in which our guests would consider it to be their home from home, as you can see from our guests reviews we believe we have achieved just that. We endeavour to maintain and improve the villa and welcome feedback from guests.

What makes this villa unique

The villa is ideally located within a very peaceful oasis of sub tropical foliage, tree line streets and lush green lawns throughout. The resort is within a secure gated community, which is manned 24/7 by security. There is no through traffic and no street parking which leaves the streets very peaceful and quiet. The villa itself is built to a Spanish style appearance, with a terracotta tiled roof, large covered porch entrance to the front and the buildings painted with warm Mediterranean type colours. The villa driveway can accommodate upto 4 cars. At the rear of the property is the enclosed spa/pool, sun bathing area, which looks directly out onto a large lake. The lake attracts much of the local wildlife, with small deer, raccoons, alligators, turtles and numerous birds having been sighted.

The resort itself is easily accessed from the two main airports and provides easy egress to all that Orlando and the surrounding areas have to offer, theme parks, shopping, restaurants, beaches that can be reached in approximately one hour etc.

Perfect house for families visiting Orlando

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated Christmas in Florida at Bellavida and had the most incredible time. I would highly recommend renting a house for a family trip it was like home away from home and meant that we could cook breakfast and dinner at the house if we didn't want to go out some evenings. The house was really spacious had a wonderful pool and overlooked the lake. The location was also great and a short drive away from all of the theme parks as well as restaurants and shopping. The owners also left us with a Christmas Tree and decorations so we could make the house really homely. Thank you for a memorable holiday.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this villa several times over the last few years.

Its always spotless, well maintained and a pleasure to be in.

John and Angie even managed to make sure this years hurricane did not hit until the day after we left.

Owner's Response: Many thanks again to the Smith family for your gracious words and patronage, it is very much appreciated. Although we may have provided you with a great stay at the villa we cannot take credit for any delay in the Hurricane. The East coast took the worst of the storm as Hurricanes do disepate very quickly if they move in land, but that does not stop the torrential rains that come with these storms or the flight restrictions. Nice to hear you arrived home safely, and missed the excitement of a heavy rain storm. You and your party are more than welcome to return at anytime, thanks again.

Wonderful Stay In this Beatiful Villa

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent the most wonderful two weeks at this lovely villa on the Bellavida Resort in Kissimme. We booked almost a year ago and from the outset had a superb level of communication and help from John and Angie, we spoke on the phone more often than not as this type of personal touch is very much what they are about. It was clear from the outset that nothing was too much trouble and John and Angie answered a plethora of questions that my family had for them.

About a week prior to our departure we received lots of further information and assistance to make sure we knew our way around both the villa itself and Florida in general.

On arrival at the villa I heard sharp inhalations of breath followed by "it's gorgeous" coming from my family who snuck inside leaving me to the luggage.

The villa is generously appointed but is also homely, this is often a difficult balance to achieve but this place felt like home. The rooms were all very spacious and comfortable with everything we could possibly need and more,The property was spotlessly clean inside and out.

The kids loved having TV's in their bedrooms so that they could relax after a day in the parks but the bit they enjoyed the most was the fantastic pool. They spent hours playing in there often turning down a trip to a Disney park in order to stay in longer, my four year old son developed such confidence at swimming whilst there that it was invaluable time spent.

I would not hesitate to book again as the place itself was great and it was in a terrific location for supermarkets, shops and restaurants many of which are walkable in ten to fifteen minutes.

I think it's fair to say we all fell in love with this lovely home and cant wait to go back.

Owner's Response: It was our pleasure to help such a nice family enjoy their holiday in our villa from April into May and we would like to thank them for such an honest and kind review. We ourselves have experienced the self same issue with our younger family members who have stayed with us and have very much preferred the pool to the many local attractions, the children just love the pool. To point out there is also a larger zero entry pool at the clubhouse, but most guest seem to enjoy the comfort of the villa's own facilities. Again thank you for the kind comments and you are welcome to return at any time.
