Lakeside home near theme parks/restaurants, free wifi, sunny pool deck all year

Bedrooms 3
Space 1,496 sq ft
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 1 - 7 nights


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! We also have a pool table and air hockey game to keep the fun going on 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, tablet or phone 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! We’d even go so far as to say it’s better than staying on site in a Disney resort (especially as they’re now charging guests for parking at their hotels!) - your car is parked directly outside the house free of charge, there’s no walking long distances across huge car parks with your heavy luggage and no walking to a bus stop then waiting for a Disney bus to take you to the entrance gate and even longer for one to take you back once the parks have closed!

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 with a morning coffee 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.

All bedrooms have new bedding had new floors laid in April 2018 - photos to follow soon!

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 our hot rod themed garage from here, where you'll find our pool table and air hockey table, there's usually a box of pool toys and inflatables in there too.

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

Please note - our home is rented on a ‘self-catering’ basis - we know that everyone has their favourite brands so we just we provide a small complimentary supply of basic items such as dishwasher tablets/pods, washer soap pouches, dish detergent and

sponge, toilet paper and extra trash bags to get you started.

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 - such as having the pool completely resurfaced and installing a colour changing underwater light to enhance your night-time swims! 2018 will see new flooring being installed in all bedrooms too.

Why Paul & Lisa chose Country Creek Estates

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.

Fantastic villa

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic villa in a quiet area with lovely outlook over lake from pool area. Close to amenities and great location for all theme parks.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review – and also for sending us a thank you message while sitting in the airport waiting to return home, that was lovely to receive! We were so pleased to hear that you all thoroughly enjoyed your first trip to Florida and your stay at our home. You may not have seen much of it if you were out having fun every day, but we’re sure that you’ll have had a peaceful and comfortable night’s sleep and woke up ready to hit the parks again the next day – one of the great advantages of staying in a villa rather than a hotel. We’re delighted that you have been recommending our home to your family and friends and look forward to welcoming you back - and hopefully some new guests - in the future.

Amazing villa, fabulous location!

  • 5 of 5

We’ve just had the most amazing two week stay at Lakeside Villa. The photos don’t do it justice, it is much bigger than it looks in the pictures. The house was beautifully clean, all linens and towels provided, a great sized kitchen with all the appliances you could need, including a popcorn maker!! Really well furnished, with a super comfy massive bed in the master suite, which also had a walk in wardrobe! Living area was huge, and the house would be extremely comfortable for up to six people. Outside, the pool was a great size (we didn’t use it, as the weather temperatures were unusually chilly during our stay), but it is regularly maintained and was pristinely clean. With a west facing aspect, the pool area gets the sun all day, and would be amazing in warmer weather. The neighbourhood is quiet and feels very safe, the location is fabulous with a 30 minute drive to Universal, the Kennedy Space Center is about 75 minutes away. Loads of good restaurants nearby and a huge supermarket a few minutes down the road.

Dealing with the owners Paul & Lisa, was an absolute pleasure, all queries and questions were answered really promptly, and the information pack that they emailed out to us, prior to our arrival, was amazing, containing everything you could wish to know as a visitor to the U.S. and to Orlando.

Instructions on how to navigate to the house were also incredibly useful.

We could not recommend this place highly enough, and if visiting Orlando again in the future, we will definitely stay there again!

Thank you Paul and Lisa.

Owner's Response: Great to hear that you had such an amazing stay at Lakeside Villa and that you liked our home so much! We consider Lakeside Villa to be our own ‘place in the sun’ so try to make our home as nice, cozy and comfortable as we would like it to be for ourselves if we were lucky enough to be staying there all year instead of the annual 2 or 3 visits. We are always pleased to find that our guests have found the location of our villa to be so well suited to their needs for theme parks, restaurants and local amenities – the aim of being on holiday is to enjoy yourselves, not to be stuck in traffic trying to get to your chosen destination and our location is pretty well suited for that – even giving you the chance to pop back to our quiet neighbourhood for a quick relaxing dip in the pool before heading back to the theme parks or heading out for one of the nearby restaurants. Glad that we were able to answer all your queries and that our info pack was found to be so useful. Thanks for the 5 star review and recommendation – please visit us again!

Perfect! 5 Star! You will not be disappointed!

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time booking a rental on a website so I was a little hesitate. However, after my first interaction with the homeowners I felt nothing but secure. They are very friendly and responsive. I took my 3 kids and mom to Orlando to visit SeaWorld and Disney for winter break. We stayed in the home for 8 days. The home is absolutely perfect for my family of 5, I would say you could easily fit a couple more. It is very spacious. The pool is AMAZING! And it sits right in front of a beautiful lake with a fountain. We enjoyed laying in the sun watching the fountain and all the ducks, cranes and birds.. my kids enjoyed feeding them. My son enjoyed the garage with the pool table and game tables. The travel was nice, only about 20 mins to the parks. There is a Walmart and Wawa right down the street. The home is in a perfect location. The neighborhood is very nice and quiet. There is a property manager on call in case you need anything and he is very responsive and helpful as well. My family will definitely call these homewoners when we come back to Florida. You will NOT be disappointed!!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for the review, we are so pleased that we were able to make your first time booking with us via website stress free and easy. Happy to hear that you found our home to be absolutely perfect for your needs and that you and your family enjoyed your winter break staying at Lakeside Villa so much. It’s great that you got to enjoy some time around the pool deck whilst watching the local wildlife and also meeting & feeding the birds. The outlook from the pool deck really does lend itself well to chilling out, relaxing and watching the world go by…with visits from the local resident wildlife of course! Good to see that your son also managed to make use of the pool table as well…it seems that you were all able to make the most of your time at Lakeside Villa between your visits to the theme parks, something which our location and ease of access to local amenities makes quite easy. Thanks for the 5 stars - we would love to welcome you back anytime!

Great vacation and the service was wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful Christmas holiday-- was an easy drive to the theme parks, we had tons of restaurant and shopping options-- very relaxing by the pool and the house had all we needed.

The rental company has been great to work with-- we even left a bag they are helping to get back to us. Paul and Lisa were very attentive and we would stay here again and recommend to friends-- Thanks so much for sharing your home.

Owner's Response: Very happy to share our home and that you all enjoyed your Christmas break at Lakeside Villa! As you have mentioned, we are very well located for visiting the nearby restaurants and theme parks which does help to make your stay a lot more fun… We do try to make our guests stay as relaxing and pleasurable as possible and thankfully we have a very good property manager who is on hand to help with those little incidents that sometimes crop up, so we are pleased that we were able to sort out your left luggage problem. Thank you so much for your recommendation and 5 star review – all the best for the new year!

Lovely villa, great location, great owners.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here as a family of 6, 4 adults and 2 kids. Villa was perfect, plenty of space, lovely pool area, great location.

Whilst we were out most of the days from fairly early it was always nice to come back and relax to end the day either in the pool or lounge area.

Location is great, about 20 minutes from most parks, and a very handy Walmart just up the road!

Owners very helpful when WiFi stopped working for a day or so and quickly fixed.

Would definitely recommend and stay again.

Thank you Paul and Lisa!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review, we’re very happy to receive another glowing recommendation and delighted to see that Lakeside Villa was found to be perfect for all your needs. As you have mentioned, the extended pool area is a great place to chill out, relax and soothe your aching feet after a busy day out seeing the sights – and the fact that there is a Walmart Supercenter nearby is very handy for groceries when you just can’t be fussed to go back out again to visit one of the many restaurants in the local area. Hope to see you all again sometime, you’d be very welcome.

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 machine 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 20 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 for a fun night out, whether you're into classic cars, line dancing, shopping, live music, having a couple of drinks or eating out. It’s only 10 minutes drive away - so close enough to get a taxi if you want to make a night of it!

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!
