About the property

Encantada Resort, Kissimmee, Florida - Located in Beautiful, Secure, Gated Resort only 10 Minutes from Disney World

Our Florida rental home is situated in an enviable position only 10 minutes from the main entrance of Disney World.

We are in a private, gated resort with many outstanding on site facilities, these include 2 large swimming pools, 2 spa pools, catch and release fishing lake, play park, and a clubhouse with a gym, games rooms and free wi-fi.

Just off site are many beautiful golf courses.

Our home is on a slightly elevated level giving wonderful views over the peaceful lake and resort, but allowing for our own pool and patio to be private and not overlooked at the rear.

We can sleep up to 9 comfortably as well as a travel cot for a baby to use.

All the essentials for an unforgettable holiday are included from bed linen and towels to crockery and washing machine.

Our home was built in 2007 and in 2008 when we bought it we completely re-furbished the house to a luxurious standard giving it a modern and homely feel, everything has been chosen to help you have a relaxing stay in the holiday capital of the world.

Every year when we visit we upgrade and re-new many items in our home, so hopefully making your holiday a more enjoyable experience.

This year 2017 we have installed a brand new AC system and renewed the Pool Heater.

We bought some new furniture, and a very comfortable 'Memory Foam' Sofa Bed, once again we renewed all the bedding and most of the towels!!

We offer generous discounts for repeat guests, and we now have many taking full advantage of this ............ one family have even bought a house a few doors down the street from us and we have enjoyed a few evening drinks with them comparing notes ;) For us and Encantada a fabulous Advert !!

About Mrs Caroline Reid

Hello, I now live in Singapore with my husband Brian, I have 3 grown up children, Samantha, Barry and David, and a beautiful granddaughter Lily who are still living back in Scotland.

In 2008 I sold a business I had started in 1999 and decided to invest the money in a holiday home. Florida was the place for us, so with my daughter Samantha, we went on a house hunt, we had a brilliant time and as an added bonus we found our ideal home!!

We have decorated and furnished our home to a very high standard. Each year when we visit we always spend time and money doing upgrades and renewals that have kept our home looking and feeling unique at Encantada. This year 2017 we installed a brand new AC system and a new Pool Heater.

We Love our 2nd home and hope that you will too, all we ask is you look after it and respect it like it was your own

Happy Holidays

Caroline x

Mrs Caroline Reid purchased this house in 2008

Why Mrs Caroline Reid chose Kissimmee

After driving all round Orlando and looking at dozens of homes, many of which, were larger but much further from all the 'to do things', we were immediately drawn to the fabulous facilities including the large community pools, clubhouse, fishing lake, beautiful landscaping and friendliness at Encantada.

The resort, on the edge of Kissimmee and genuinely less than 10 minutes drive from the gates of Disney and no more than 30 minutes from any of the other star attractions, is fantastic.

Being only 25 minutes from the Airport was another bonus for us, as was the fact that we are only an hour from either the East or West coast beaches.

Inside Encantada is like another world, it is quiet, relaxed and hard to believe you are actually so close to all the action ..... the Perfect Location !

What makes this house unique

Our lovely house although very close to all the attractions is situated in a superb resort that is so peaceful and tranquil it feels like another world.

We can relax in our own private pool and do absolutely nothing all day or we can take a very short drive to anywhere and do virtually anything Florida has to offer.

In the evening we are lucky to be so close to dozens of very good and reasonably priced eateries something we love!!

We also stay home and BBQ a lot and chill by the pool with a wee vino.

We are opposite some of the best golfing in Orlando, at Orange Lakes, where there is a choice of courses to suit all players.

The catch and release fishing lake with rod rental from the clubhouse is another great way to relax, all in all we love our holday home and are sure you will too.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hiya Caroline, how are you?

Just a note to let you know we had a fantastic time at the house again and gutted we're home. Was another great holiday and thanks for the use of your house again.

Hopefully we'll use your home again if and when we return, though we're planning on moving about a bit next time to see the keys and the gulf coast.

I'll be in touch in the future again.

Very nice property, good location and facilities

  • 5 of 5

The property was very easy to find in the Encantada resort. As regular visitors to Orlando we found that the house was of a very good standard and perfect for our needs. Good access to all Orlando has to offer and to the I4 for travel to Tampa and Clearwater.

The rental home itself has everything that a family needs and also has a nice heated pool(which is unusal in a lot of Townhouses) and within a short 2min walk to the clubhouse and the 2 heated pools for the lazy days. Plenty of room for 6 people, with good Wifi and Cable tv the home was very clean and comfortable as a home from home.

Last but not least, the owner Caroline was a pleasure to deal with and I would definitely recommend this property for your family Orlando visit and will be looking to book again when returning to Florida.

Lovely home in a lovely resort!

The resort was quiet, well maintained and had great facilities. The pools were beautiful! The town house was lovely, well decorated and well equipped with everything we needed. There was plenty of room for all 6 of us. We hired a car, and thought the location was perfect for our needs.

Thank you Caroline for opening your home to us!

The Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The property was perfect for our family and our first get away! The kids thoroughly enjoyed the attached pool as well as the clubhouse accommodations. Everything was comfortable and we were close enough to anything me may need. Caroline was quick to respond to any questions we had. A perfectly pleasant experience - we will definitely return!

Beautiful Condo!!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is very beautiful. The pool is very nice and a good bonus. The property is very clean and updated. Even though the week we went was very cold the 2 heated pools and hot tubs were very nice. Thank you Caroline! If we ever go back to Orlando we will be contacting you first.

Car: recommended

Special interest holidays:

Golfers flock to central Florida to play golf all year round with many preferring to visit between October and April when the temperature is warm and humidity is low making it more comfortable to play.

Our rental prices are also less during this time !!

We also welcome guests who wish to stay long term over the winter to enjoy the mild temperatures and avoid the bad weather at home, we can arrange special rates for these guests so please ask for details.


We are approximately 50 minutes drive from Cocoa Beach, Cape Canaveral and the famous Daytona beach on the Atlantic coast. About 1 hours drive to the west coast on the Gulf of Mexico are several beautiful powder white sandy beaches including, Clearwater, St Petes and the beautiful Marina at Sarasota is a must see for boat lovers and those wanting to try deep sea fishing.

An abundance of excellent restaurants here serve wonderful fresh seafood or just sit with a drink and relax for a while!


Orlando International Airport is a 20-30 minute drive away. Orlando Sanford takes around 45 minutes. Both are convenient for visiting our home.

Car hire is highly recommended, fuel is cheap and the road network is very easy to navigate and well signed. Maps are given out by car hire companies and GPS can be hired for an extra charge.

We are happy to recommend the ones we have used.


10 minutes to Walt Disney World - Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney MGM Studios, Animal Kingdom, Downtown Disney, Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon. 10 minutes to Sea World and Aquatica. 20 minutes to Universal Studios, wet n wild and International Drive.

Shopping at Mall of Millenia, Florida Mall, Winter Garden, Premium and Prime Outlets are all just between 20 & 30 minutes away.

The quaint town of Celebration with its many cafes and restaurants is less than 5 minutes away, & well worth a visit.

Further Details:

Encantada is sited off the US 192 road, along here are literally 100's of shops and restaurants. A 10 minute walk from the house there is a 7/11 convenience store with petrol, MacDonalds, Pizza Hut, and Bruno's Italian.

2 minutes drive along the 192 there is an enormous Super Target selling absolutely everything and more!!

If you prefer Walmart our nearest one is about 5 minutes drive from the house, along the I27.

Many of the local shops have ATM machines inside and Walmart often have bank branches in them.

Tickets for many attractions are sold everywhere and many discount vouchers for these, as well as for local eateries and restaurants can be picked up locally, including at the Encantada clubhouse where there are many offers available.
