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.

Lovely villa in great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the villa for one week in September 17 and found it perfect for our needs. Exactly as shown in the pictures, convenient location for the theme parks and there is a 24 hr Walmart a couple of minutes drive away. Was lovely to return from the parks and chill in our own pool each evening. The owners provided a brilliant welcome pack in advance of our stay that answered any questions we might have. Would recommend the villa and would be happy to stay there again.

Een heerlijk vakantiehuis

  • 5 of 5

We hebben een heerlijke vakantieweek gehad in dit fijne huis in Florida. Toen we aankwamen was alles zoals op de foto's en hoe (schoon) we het verwacht hadden. Het huis is mooi ruim opgezet op een goede plek nabij een Walmart en de Disney parken. Er zijn ook veel restaurants en shopping malls in de buurt.

De buurt is rustig met een mix van vakantiegangers en locals.

Een aanrader met een goede prijs kwaliteit verhouding!

Owner's Response: Thank you - it was lovely to receive our first Dutch review! We are very happy to see that you had a lovely holiday at Lakeside Villa and that it met all your expectations. Our villa pictures are intended to give a true reflection of what our guests will find on arrival. Thank you for saying how nice, well situated and clean our home is and for your 5 star recommendation. (Translated the review reads: “A lovely holiday - we had a wonderful holiday week in this nice Florida house. When we arrived everything was as per the pictures and how (clean) we expected. The house is nicely set in a good location near a Walmart and Disney parks. There are also many restaurants and shopping malls nearby. The neighborhood is quiet with a mix of vacationers and locals. Highly recommended with a good value quality ratio!”

Amazing week.

  • 5 of 5

As soon as we pulled up on the drive the final part of our holiday started. Easy access instructions, beautiful well- maintained, air conditioned villa ( which was a welcome relief in the Aug sunshine) .

Lots of additional useful information left too.

Pool area is beautiful and the added extra of toys, inflatables for the children was very welcome.

We found Lakeside to be perfectly located to all the parks, from Disney, Universal, Seaworld, Discovery cove , all took roughly 20-30 mins. Walmart is 2 mins away by car.

We highly recommend this villa, booking was easy and any questioned were answer by Paul and Lisa very quickly.

Enjoy yourselves.

Owner's Response: Delighted to hear that Lakeside Villa was able to help make the final week of your holiday so amazing - and we are thrilled to receive yet another 5 star rating! We are very pleased to hear that you had such a great time staying at our villa and you found the location to be perfect for all your theme park visits. Lakeside Villa is indeed very well situated to give our guests a quiet, relaxing break away from all the hustle and bustle whilst still being in close proximity to all the theme parks that Florida is famous for. It’s great to be able to be close enough to theme parks to pop back for a mid-afternoon dip in our lakeside pool before heading on back refreshed and invigorated for more theme park fun! Thank you very much for taking the time to write us such a nice review and recommending us so highly!

Highly, highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

Where do I start?!!! The whole process of renting this beautiful home from Lisa and Paul was made so easy. They are a delight to rent from and the correspondence we received from them prior to our arrival, was detailed and my questions answered promptly. They were so accommodating - even letting us rent for 17 days AND stay on late on our day of departure as we had an evening flight. Nothing was too much trouble for them.

Lakeside Villa was absolutely perfect for the five of us (me, my husband and our children aged 22, 19 and 13) and is incredibly well placed for visiting all the sights Orlando/Florida has to offer - shopping, theme parks, activities, beaches etc etc. The house is well equipped and is bright, comfortable and spacious. It has the feeling of 'home'. It is in a quiet neighbourhood with a 24 hr Walmart a very short drive away which was so handy after a long flight. We loved the covered pool with the wonderful outlook and birdlife!!! One of the ducks had ducklings whilst we were there!

We cannot recommend this villa enough and we have already started talking about booking again. Lisa and Paul are exemplary owners and I feel we struck gold with both their villa and with them!! A perfect holiday in every way. Many, many thanks for all you did to make our holiday so good.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for all your kind words – we are very happy to receive such a glowing recommendation from yourselves and hope it helps to put a previous unfair poor review into context. It’s so nice to receive another 5 star review and to see that all our efforts and our management company’s hard work to make Lakeside Villa such a pleasant place to stay are so well received and appreciated. We are so pleased that you liked our home so much and that we could help to extend your stay for a little bit longer so you could enjoy your holiday even more – where possible we do try to be flexible to accommodate our guests requests and to supply them with plenty of helpful info prior to their arrival as we understand that they can be a bit tired after their flight, which makes the nearby location of a 24hr Walmart Supercenter so very handy! It was great to see that you got the opportunity to spend some time around the pool and enjoy all the sights of the local wildlife by the lake….whenever we stay we always keep an eye out for any new little ducklings that may be out and about – they’re so cute! Thank you for saying we have such a beautiful home – we are delighted to hear that we were able to make your stay so perfect and we would love to welcome you all back to Lakeside Villa again!

Everything we hoped for!

  • 5 of 5

Dear Paul & Lisa, we had a great stay at your beautiful house!

It was everything we hoped for : very clean, performant AC, ideal pool, comfortable beds, complete kitchen, nicely decorated, quite neighbourhood, super location from supermarkets/restaurants/theme parks - in other words "perfect"! We could see the house is being taken care of very well and you want the best for your guests. We appreciated all the information you provide before and during our stay.

We reported a minor defect upon our arrival (merely because we didn't want you to think we broke it) and were surprised that you had it fixed within 24 hrs ! Thank you for that !

Hoping we can return one day !

Owner's Response: Thanks Evi, we are delighted to receive another 5 star review and hear that you had a great time at our ‘beautiful house’ and found Lakeside Villa to be the ‘perfect’ holiday home for you. We apologise that one of the pool screens was damaged when you arrived, but as they are only made of mesh they split quite easily in strong winds and have to be replaced quite regularly, but, as in your case, we always do our very best to have them repaired as quickly as possible. Our management team & ourselves work very hard to make sure your stay is as pleasant and stress free as possible and we try to provide all our guests with plenty of info to get the most out of their visit. We do appreciate the feedback that you have taken the time to provide us to truly reflect the condition of our home, thank you very much. We would love to welcome you back sometime!

Home away from home. Everything we needed at our fingertips

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. Close to the theme parks and easy access to shopping, highways and beaches. Easy day tripping from this location. Pool was lovely and living area spacious. Beds were comfortable and the kids liked the games and pool toys supplied. Thanks

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!
