Overview

About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 6, private pool with extended sunny pool deck

Welcome to our wonderful lakeside villa in the beautiful community of Country Creek Estates – whether you are hitting the theme parks or looking to chill out and relax, our home is perfectly situated for you. And don't just take our word for that - if you read our reviews you'll see our guests think the same!

Our home overlooks a lake to the rear - so while you’re relaxing around your very own pool you’ll have a fabulous view of the water, fountain and wildlife instead of looking at a fence or directly into the neighbour’s yard!

As well as for Disney, people come to Florida for the year round sunshine and our southwest facing extended pool deck can give you plenty of that! The whole family can enjoy some fun time together in the fresh air, chilling out on a sun lounger or splashing about in the pool - which you can even use on an evening when it takes on a different look with our colour-changing pool light, which goes through shades of white, red, green and blue! We also have a pool table and air hockey game for those rare cooler and rainy days.

Our pool deck gets the sun all day - a very important factor if you are staying in the cooler Winter months - but shade-lovers also have their cool haven under our lanai. We just love having brunch out here while watching the ducks and sitting with a relaxing drink on an evening with our feet up (or in the pool!) after a long day at the parks.

Complimentary wireless internet access is available (even on the pool deck!), just bring your laptop and keep adding your photos to Facebook and Instagram! It’s also a great way to keep up-to-date with events in the parks and the local area, especially if you want to give your feet a break and find something relaxing to do!

We have stayed in far too many hotel rooms which are tiny and have uncomfortable modern furniture - and a view of the service area or a wall or roof! Because of this the aim of our home is to provide a comfortable, homely environment which is light and airy and where you will feel able to relax and enjoy your vacation to the full. So why stay in a small hotel room, when you can have a whole house and your own private pool for the same price? No more slamming doors late at night or noisy guests in the room next door to put up with either!

Our welcoming and comfortable lounge/dining room is the perfect place to relax on an evening whilst watching a movie and has access to the pool deck through sliding doors. It has a large comfortable sectional sofa, coffee table, a flat screen LCD TV with multiple cable channels and a dvd player. We have a dining table and chairs if you want more formal dining - or need somewhere to rest that giant pizza box which won’t fit on your knee!

The master bedroom has a luxurious pillow-top king size bed, phone and flat screen TV/DVD combi, and an en-suite bathroom with his & hers basins, a big oval bath and separate walk-in shower unit. There is a large walk in closet with plenty of storage space, this is also where our baby equipment is stored (a highchair, baby monitors, pack & play and buggy/stroller). The bedroom overlooks the pool area so you can sit in bed and still admire the lakeside view!

Bedroom 2 has a tropical theme with twin beds and sliding doors which lead onto the pool deck/lanai (children are safe as alarms are fitted and will sound if the door is opened). Also has a walk in closet and TV/DVD combi.

Bedroom 3 is our Mickey & Minnie Americana style room which is bright and sunny and also has twin beds and a large closet.

The family bathroom, with basin, toilet, and bath/shower combo, is close to bedrooms 2 & 3 and also has access to the pool area (door has pool alarm).

The kitchen is fully equipped with an oven/hob, microwave, dishwasher, refrigerator/freezer with crushed ice, ice cube and water dispenser, washing machine and tumble dryer. Our retro American diner style breakfast nook is the perfect place to grab a quick coffee and bite to eat before heading out for the day. You can also gain access to the garage from here, where we keep the pool toys and inflatables.

For outdoor dining there is a table and chairs on the lanai/patio, and also a ceiling light and fan for warm summer evenings.

About Paul & Lisa

We are Paul and Lisa and we live in the North East of England and love the USA - so much so, we even got married in Las Vegas!

We have been vacationing in the Orlando area since the early 1990s and will never tire of it – the weather is so wonderful, even in the Winter, and there is so much to do. At first we stayed in hotels, until we discovered the luxury of staying in a villa. The extra space and facilities make it so much easier to have some much needed relaxation time. And as for having your own pool – it just can’t be beat!

We’d love to spend much more time in our Kissimmee home, but still work full-time so that we can invest more money on continually improving it. It would be such a shame to leave it empty for the rest of the year, so we’d like to share it with people who will enjoy it and keep it company while we’re away!

We want our villa to be a great place to stay, so any profits we make are spent on continually updating and improving - we have just had the pool completely resurfaced and installed a colour changing light to enhance your night-time swims! Over the last couple of years we have bought flat screen TVs for the lounge, master bedroom and guest bedroom, a sectional sofa for the lounge, a new dryer, and bedding for all rooms, also the villa exterior and pool deck have been painted and the cushions replaced on all loungers and chairs on the pool deck, so you get to sunbathe in comfort!

We love staying at the villa ourselves and visit at least twice a year, which means we can personally ensure it is kept up to a high standard - and that everything works! We also ask our guests to let us know of anything they come across during their stay which needs to be replaced or repaired by our Property Manager in between our visits.

Why Paul & Lisa chose Kissimmee

Our villa was the last one we viewed on our day of house-hunting. The one we were staying in at the time was situated much closer to neighbouring properties and was totally fenced in at the back, so from the moment we arrived at our new home we fell in love with the open aspect and the view of the lake and fountain. We signed the contract the next day as we were so determined not to lose it!

What makes this villa unique

Lakeside Villa is wholly owned and operated by us as our one and only private rental property, which enables us to give our full attention to your enquiries and bookings, guaranteeing you a prompt, personal service.

Our Management Company is also a small and very friendly family-owned business who are always available and respond quickly should you need any assistance. They take a great pride in the homes they look after and the Owner personally inspects our property prior to your arrival, ensuring that your holiday home has been cleaned to a high standard and that everything is ready for you, such as turning lights on if you have a late night arrival.

Our pool deck has been extended and is one of the largest on the estate, so there is plenty of space around the pool for sun loungers, chairs and tables. On your chill out days you can set yourself up early in the day and stay just where you are without having to chase the sun – no need to squeeze into a small corner to catch the first or the last of the rays! A very important consideration during the Winter months.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have had a great holiday at your villa, it was clean, spacious and in the best location. Emma loved the pool so much that she learnt to snorkel in it before we went to discovery cove. We all now have the holiday blues this week and wish we could have had three weeks. Oh well we will have to go back soon, but I won't leave it 25 years before I go back. We will definitely recommend it. Thanks again to you both.

A wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect for couples or small families, and is fuss free because there is nothing little ones can harm. The house itself is very comfortable and access to the pool has alarms on the doors so you will know the children are safe. The house overlooks an amazing lake which attracts wildlife such as whooping crane and ducks, as well as buzzards who like to fish - and to see them dive, claws out, into the water is a sight to see. The road itself is lovely and peaceful and there is a supermarket just at the end of the main road that runs along the end of the road. We really can't recommend Lisa and Paul's house highly enough so if you are looking for a very comfortable peaceful stay which is very close to Disney etc., then this is the one for you. Enjoy!

Great location. Neighbourhood was very friendly. Bright welcoming home.

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our time here. Lots of room for our family. Loved having the pool and it's awesome that the deck gets the sun all day. So close to everything but yet far enough away from it too. The information package was great to have. Would love to come back. Paul & Lisa were wonderful to deal with, especially with my rookie questions.

Warm sunny Christmas in Kissimee

  • 5 of 5

Finding the property was very easy. When we entered everything was emmaculate and very clean. Our first morning we were woken by a pair of cranes that were very vocally wandering around the lake. Breakfast was outside by the pool, bird watching and luckily we had ordered pool heating so breakfast was followed by a quick dip.

The air conditioning worked well, beds were comfortable. Extra blankets were available.

I would like some of the kitchen equipment to be updated but we managed.

Lisa and Paul were easy to contact and very friendly.

We were very lucky with the weather and were visiting with our teenage boys. We are used to touring so had a busy schedule visiting: Islands of adventure, Boggy Creek airboats, Daytona, Disney Springs, Premium Outlet shopping, Gatorland, Gaylord Palm Resort for lunch, Celebration and the muscle cars in Old Town and Acquatica.

I personally loved the pool, we all loved the space provided in this house. It really felt like a home from home, so Thankyou Paul and Lisa.

For those that go next I would recommend you find the Publix supermarket as the food is a higher standard than Walmart. I would also recommend booking the Boathouse in Disney Springs. Finally don't be afraid of valet parking. It is 20 dollars and can be a life saver.

A wonderful vacation and we hope to return next winter.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review and to say how nice and clean our villa is, we are always pleased to get good feedback as it shows that we are providing a welcome home from home for our guests to enjoy their stay. As you discovered, as well as having a great view, the pool deck is a good location for some wildlife spotting and you never know from one day to the next what is going to visit. We usually start our days with breakfast by the poolside followed by a morning dip as well, so glad you had the time in your busy schedule to do likewise. If you are able to visit us again next winter and join our ever growing list of returning guests you would be most welcome.

A real home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We just returned and had a fantastic week.This home is exceptionally clean and welcoming and the same is to be said about the pool. The sun deck is a bonus as is the backyard lake.The decor really makes it feel like a home vs a house, nice touch and something you do not always get with other home rentals. Thanks Paul and Lisa, you were great to deal with. Hope to be back again some day.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your 5 star review! Glad to hear that you had a fantastic week at Lakeside Villa. We are really pleased that you appreciated the ‘non rental home’ vibe of our villa as we do try to add little personal touches and decorate/furnish the villa in such a way so it does not feel like a typical hotel/holiday home and indeed reflects some of our personality and interests. We were also happy to hear that you enjoyed your time around the pool - the pool deck and surrounding views were one of our main reasons for purchasing the villa when we first viewed it. Lastly, many thanks for saying how clean and welcoming our villa is, we have passed your compliments on to the cleaning crew. We both hope to welcome you back to Lakeside Villa again sometime in the future.

Great location, beautiful villa. Everything was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Really lovely villa with lots of homely touches - this is a home not just a sterile clone holiday rental.

We loved the diner themed breakfast area and the pool was awesome!

Neighbourhood very quiet and felt perfectly safe - the few people we saw were all very friendly.

2 mins drive from Walmart

Genuine 20 mins to Disney (although traffic can add 5-10 minutes)

Owners very responsive and helpful

Would definitely recommend and we would stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review. We’re glad you enjoyed your stay – we view the villa as our own ‘home from home’ so try to add little touches to make it as welcoming, cosy and individual as our own home in the UK and not just another typical rental villa. We always try to spend as much time around the pool as possible on our visits there and with the addition of our new colour changing pool light we spend fun times outside on an evening too! Thanks for being great guests - you are more than welcome to visit again!

Highly recommended - perfect property

  • 5 of 5

Many thanks to Lisa and Paul for letting us stay at their villa. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and would have no hesitation staying here again or recommending this villa. Lisa and Paul responded quickly to our emails and provided lots of useful information about the villa and the local area.

The property is immaculate. It is very well maintained and appointed, with everything you need for a great holiday. Lisa and Paul clearly take a great amount of pride in their home.

Everything was as described in the listing description and just as shown in the pictures. The retro diner themed kitchen is well equipped. Bedrooms and bathrooms are tastefully decorated with comfy beds. The living area is airy and in the evenings we loved relaxing there watching the baseball or being in the garage/games room playing pool.

The outside pool area overlooks the lake and is bathed in sunshine from early morning onwards. We spent lots of our time in the pool or soaking up the sun on the extended deck area. The villa is ideally located close to supermarkets ( 2 minutes from Walmart) and around 15-20 minutes from the Disney parks.

We have visited Florida on a number of occasions and this is the best property that we have stayed in. Thank you.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your recommendation & 5 star review, we are very happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Lakeside Villa so much. We do take pride in taking care of our holiday home, and we also present an honest online representation of what our guests can expect upon staying with us and fortunately for us we have a very good property manager who keeps the property well maintained in our absence. We are pleased that you were able to find time to relax by the sunny poolside and also spent some time indoors playing pool, we intend to further develop the games room in the garage some more on our next upcoming visit to offer even more of an enjoyable visit to our guests at Lakeside Villa. Many thanks for saying that our holiday home is the best property you have stayed in – it makes all our hard work feel worthwhile!

Country Creek is a lovely tranquil community but is close to all amenities.

FOOD & DRINK – our home is only 2 minutes drive from a 24-hour Walmart Supercenter where you can get just about anything you could ever need - including a self-service kiosk which rents the latest DVDs for you to enjoy in the comfort of your own villa! An Aldi food store is also a few minutes away.

RESTAURANTS of every description can be found within 15 minutes along Highway 192 – Italian, Chinese, Japanese, Indian, Mexican and more! Also favourites such as Denny’s, Steak’n’Shake, Fat Boys’ BBQ, Red Lobster, Ponderosa and Logan's Roadhouse Grill.

WALT DISNEY WORLD theme parks are an easy 15 minutes drive away – so in the summer you can come home for a mid-afternoon cooling swim before heading back to the parks for their evening fireworks display – bliss!

SEAWORLD, UNIVERSAL STUDIOS and INTERNATIONAL DRIVE are great places to visit on your non-Disney days and are only 20-25 minutes away.

COCOA BEACH is the closest beach, just 80 minutes drive away, where you’ll find white sandy beaches, lovely seafood restaurants and a huge Ron Jon surf shop! Kennedy Space Centre is also just a few miles away along the same coast.

DAYTONA BEACH – ‘The World’s Most Famous Beach’ - can be reached in 90 minutes and gives you the unique opportunity to actually drive and park your car on the beach! Take a picnic and set it up near the car, or take advantage of the one of the beachfront bars and restaurants (our favourite is Ocean Deck – scare your friends back home with tales of eating gator bites!)

OLD TOWN is the place to be if you love the 1950s era. It’s only 10 minutes drive away – every weekend they have classic car cruises and entertainment (you might even spot an Elvis impersonator!).

DRIVE-IN MOVIE THEATRES are very rare these days but you are only 55 minutes away from Silver Moon Drive In at Lakeland – much cheaper and much more fun than a modern multiplex!
