About the property

All Newly Remodeled & Redecorated 3/2 Condo for 8 and Close to Disney!

There is a video attached so you can see more of our lovely Condo. It is at the very end of our Royal Palm Bay listing site, on the left side of the page and says "VIDEO".

Please take time to view our videos and you will see for yourself how really nice out Royal Palm Bay Condo is!

We want you to visit our quiet Condo and now is the time. Our Condo is very Family Friendly. We are the original owners of the property. Our Condo is built in the style of Key West Architecture, which is a favorite of southern Florida. We are eagerly awaiting when our Villas will be repainted in the various Key West colors.

When you enter the front door you be walking into our living room and and then dining room. It is a spacious area and is open to our all new full size kitchen with a spacious dining area and 8 comfortable chairs with a large living area.

The kitchen is an open concept kitchen. So when mom and dad are cooking or doing some baking, the kids are there eating at our large dining table (sits 8) or watching our new large screen color television.

You will certainly save a lot of money by cooking your own meals. To save more money, we also suggest that you pack lunches when you go to the theme parks. This will certainly save you a lot of money. Additionally, by bringing your own lunch to the theme parks, you will save a lot of time by not having to stand in long lines for your meals.

In these past few months, we also had all new bedroom furniture delivered. There is a new queen size bed in the master bedroom and a large dresser with a mirror. There is also an additional Television. Also there are 2 side tables next to the beds and a TV on a small table.

For the two other bedrooms they each have 2 twin beds in each bedroom along with a side table and a dresser.

There is all new bedroom furniture. See pictures.

Additionally, we have a large new sofa in our living room that opens up into a full size bed. So there is an extra space for sleeping for your family.

In the kitchen, we have all new full size stainless steel appliances. It is fully-equipped with all cooking needs, including pots/pans, dishes, flatware/glasses, etc. There is a counter top bar with 2 bar stools for fast meals.

Our Condo is complete with 2 full-size bathrooms (one with a tub/shower and the other bathroom has a walk-in shower with a vessel sink). One of the bathrooms is en-suite.

The master bedroom looks out over the patio and a protected wooded area. This bedroom has an en-suite bathroom and and the other 2 bedrooms both have twin-size beds with a hall bathroom. This past January, we had all of our bedrooms completely refurnished with all new beds and dressers and chest of drawers.

Please see all the pictures of our Condo that our family has posted.

We are less than 2 miles to WalMart, Super Target and Publix Food Market and convenient to all the area Attractions. This makes it very economical to make all your meals at home and even make sandwiches to take when your family goes to visit Micky Mouse and Harry Potter! Through out your stay you will find out that you will save a great deal of money on all your meals and snacks.

Our brand new kitchen is complete with granite counter tops and all full size stainless steel appliances. In addition to all our new custom-made cabinets, we have a small pantry for any extra food you may have.

We also have free WiFi and free long distance phone service though out all of the contiguous 48 States---including Canada.

Three years ago, we had an interior designer completely redecorate our Condo. She also designed and remodeled our kitchen. You can see for yourself by the pictures how nice our Condo is. Additionally our condo is really child friendly. You can also see by all our pictures how truly lovely our Condo is!

Staying in our Condo is so much nicer than staying in a hotel. Family members get their own bedrooms, there's a brand new full-size kitchen for groceries and quick meals, and a full-size washer and dryer so you don't run out of clean clothes! Our Condo is far less expensive than a hotel too!

When you look at our pictures that we posted, you will find one picture that shows the complete blueprints of our Condo. All the rooms are shown in detail. Our family thought that this was important so that renters could get a real see the layout of our home by looking at these blueprints.

We also have a map of the area, so you can see how convenient it is to get to the Disney Theme Parks from our property---Poinciana to Osceola take you right into all the Disney properties. Additionally, we are only 5 miles from Sea World and we are only 7 miles from Universal Studios. All very convenient.

Royal Palm Bay is a small community. Our Association's Board of Directors have worked very hard to get our community where is is today. We just had new roads and new parking installed in Royal Palm Bay. And are very happy and proud of Royal Palm Bay!

About Marianne Piet

We currently live in a large suburb of Chicago, Naperville, IL. I am a Professor Emeritus and I taught Graduate School in Clinical Social Work for many years. My husband worked in Insurance before he retired. We have three children and two grandchildren who come down often for a short visit just to relax. Sometimes they come down just to visit all the sites and fun places in the Kissimmee area. However, for every trip to our Condo, our 1st visit is to always go to the Magic Kingdom--This has been our family tradition for all these years.

Marianne Piet purchased this condo in 1993

Why Marianne Piet chose Royal Palm Bay

We purchased our Villa after staying in a similar complex a few blocks away. When we heard that this development was being built, we purchased this Condo immediately. We loved it as soon as we walked in. Even with our children and grandchildren, we are not crowded. It is a perfect, peaceful place for a family of 8. And it is the perfect place to escape with your family. Royal Palm Bay is a quiet and private family community.

Royal Palm Bay is the perfect place for families. It has everything, including pool, hot tub, sauna, playground, tennis court, clubhouse (with pool table and exercise room and a very small lending library). Our family sees our Condo as a retreat from all the activities. Our community (Royal Palm Bay) is very quiet and peaceful. Our Condo is also spacious, warm and inviting and centrally located to all the area Theme Parks, attractions, restaurants, malls, etc.

What makes this condo unique

It is wonderful being so close to all the Disney properties as well as Universal Studies and, of course, Harry Potter! It is so convenient and easy to get to all these attractions and is far less expensive to rent our Condo than to rent 3 or 4 hotel rooms. We have a full size complete kitchen that has been totally remodeled. We have all brand new custom made cabinets, granite counter tops, and all new stainless steel appliances. it is easy to make family meals for everyone, if you choose.

However, we are close to a number of restaurants, if you wish to eat out. It is your choice to choose just what is easier for you.

Royal Palm Bay is not a very large complex, yet we still have all the amenities, including clubhouse, pool, playground, tennis court, sauna and hot tub, exercise room, etc.

In addition, Royal Palm Bay just had a brand new Tennis Court Installed. All the electrical wiring and timers have been replaced. Our association has just purchased items such as an all new Volley Ball, Tennis Rackets and Balls, Shuffle Board Sticks and Pucks.

So if you have some spare time after Disney fun, come down to our Clubhouse and take part in some of these games or exercise and have more fun. Fun at no extra cost to your family.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We really appreciate the last minute rental that you let us have. And we appreciate that you really lowered your price for us. You have a beautiful place and it is so clean.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a beautiful condo with everything as they described. Kitchen well stocked, lots of towels, everything we needed to prepare meals. We had neighbors upstairs but almost never heard them. The location is perfect for all orlando attractions. We also took a trip to the east coast and spent the day, also a day in tampa, with each trip taking about one hour fifteen minutes. The whole development is clean and well cared for and we spent most days lounging at the pool for a couple of hours. People there mostly over sixty and friendly as well. If we come back to Kissimmee I would definitely like to stay here again if available. Thank you Marianne, we had a wonderful month.

Location was not convenient to Disney and not very clean

  • 2 of 5

The owner was very responsive to questions and her property manager was helpful when the wifi stopped working.

But the Property is 20-25 min from Disney parks which is further than we thought. When we walked in it had a mildew smell. It wasn't the cleanest and had dead bugs along baseboards and mildew in showers.

Not that the owner can do anything about this but when we took our children to the pool the retired people there were not nice and made us very uncomfortable that our girls were in the pool even though they were being respectful and not splashing. The complex was not welcoming to families with children. We also became a little concerned about the area when we saw a security guard at the pool as well as riding around the complex.

Decent but needs a little TLC...

  • 3 of 5

Overall it was OK. Looks like some upgrades done in last few years but there were a few things needing attention such as mold or mildew in master shower, loose carpet in closet, and a general musty smell. Also surprised at no dishwasher soap and only 1 roll of TP in each bathroom. Nice quiet area and easy access to Disney.

Owner's Response: I am so sorry that you were not satisfied with our condo. We try really hard, but sometimes there are mistakes made and other problems occur. This is the first 3 star that we have ever had out of the 62 evaluations that we had in the eight years we have been renting. I wish you would have notified us sooner and we would have tried to rectified the situation or we could have compensated you for the problems.

Easy to book the condo. Royal Palm Bay is a great setting with beautiful ponds and clubhouse and pool. The unit was updated and spacious. I have not seen any other condo in the area with the upgrades that exist in this unit. For a family, it is great to be able to spread out after coming home from a long day at the parks. A hotel room is more expensive and crowded. This townhome is very close to all theme parks, and is a nice escape from the crowds. It's also only an hour from Cocoa Beach, making a simple day trip to the ocean without much time in the car. We also saved a lot of money because it was easy to pack lunches and bring them to the park. Also, we could go home and make a quick dinner and get back to the parks in a flash. Theme park food is so expensive, it's nice to realize the savings that add up day after day. Highly recommend anyone to stay here!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the very kind review. We try very hard to make our home as nice as possible.

We also, go back to our home and sometimes take a quick nap!

Felt like home!

  • 5 of 5

My wife's company had their annual convention, so the kids and I tagged along. We spent the first 5 nights at the Swan & Dolphin resort. Beautiful resort, but the room was just too small for the 4 of us. The last 5 nights were spent at the condo and we were so comfortable! There was plenty of space for everyone and the kids loved their room.

Marianne was such a pleasure to work with. We'll be coming back next June and will definitely be staying here again.

Owner's Response: We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay at our condo. There is plenty of room for the family---and if parents want to fix a meal, they can be fixing it while watching their children in the living room. We are happy that the kids love their room.

Orlando vacation

  • 5 of 5

First of all, I am very anal about my surroundings. I refuse to stay in a place that is not safe or clean. Secondly, I have looked at many. many properties, and I later found the reviews to be unsatisfactory. However, I managed to stumble across Piet's property, and OMG! Let me just start by saying that I nervously inquired about the property and the response was within an hour or less. Next, I looked at the reviews, and to my surprise, they were all good. But, being the cynical person that I am, I still was a little nervous about going so far without knowing what I was going to walk in to. I then placed a call to Ms. Piet, and she answered--go figure! I spoke with her about what I saw on her website, and she confirmed everything. She was very meek and professional at that. By the time we hung up, I had faith in someone else's words. I also began to feel like I didn't go wrong with Ms. Piet because WHENEVER I called, she answered or returned my calls. In turn, I decided to go with Royal Palm property (Piet's). After a 15 hour drive, with five kids, the villa awaited us, and boy, were we satisfied. All of my fears had vanished away when my family and I walked into a three bedroom, two bathroom home--fully furnished. It was clean and recently updated/remodeled. What I admired so much about it was the fact that EVERY picture on the website was what we saw in the home. Not one picture was out of place (belonging to someone else's property). By the time we finished exploring the home, every one in my party thanked me. I felt awesome! After a long week's stay, we packed up and said "adios" to the place we returned to night after night, as if it were our own. So with that being said, if I ever return to Florida, I will personally request that same villa. Other than that, there's a list of family and friends who I have already called and made recommendations to. I want to personally say thank you again to Ms. Piet. Oh, and one more thing, everyone. I accidentally reserved the place for one day short of my daughter's birthday, put a call in to Ms. Piet, who was hospitalized at the time, unbeknownst to me, and she readily obliged--even in her condition, she was very polite. Whoever seeks to reserve this place, it comes highly recommended from someone who looks for even minor details before she decides to stay at such a place.

Our condo is conveniently located to all Disney Properties--about 4 1/2 miles. To get to the Disney Properties, you need to only take 2 roads. Just take Poinciana down to Osceola Parkway and that takes you to all the Disney Properties---The Magic Kingdom, Epcot, MGM, Animal Kingdom.

We are also conveniently located to the Disney Water Parks,---Typhoon Lagoon, Blizzard Beach as well as Downtown Disney. This is such a fun place with some great restaurants and a large movie theater.

And we are centrally located close to Universal Studios, Harry Potter and Sea World. The children will love all these attractions and it will make for a perfect vacation.

We are in a perfect location for all the fun in Central Florida. We are less than 2 miles from 192 the main street in Kissimmee.

Our condo is about 4 miles from the city of Celebration (Disney small town). It is perfectly located in a very quiet area. It is very quaint and is a wonderful retreat from all the excitement of the theme parks. There is a 'Downtown' area that has some small shops, a movie theater, and an ice cream store. Near the center of the town square is a small lake. There are rocking chairs to sit in and relax that are very close to the lake. This is a peaceful, perfect place to relax. Sometimes other renters have reported that they have seen an alligator in the water!

Close to that same area there is a large hospital with a large ER. We are also very close to many, many outlet malls.Some of our guests go to the Outlet malls for clothing, jewelry, housewares, etc.and enjoy the experience of shopping.

The best outlet mall is only a few miles from our Condo. It is Orlando Premium Outlet Stores. It is on International Drive and has over 80 Designer Stores; over 25 Shoe Stores and over 23 Jewelry Stores along with many fast food restaurants.

Two miles from our Condo there is a large Public Food Market and drug store. We are also very close to a Super-Target (with a Starbucks) and there is a McDonald's further down the street.

We are in a very convenient location. Yet we are in a very quiet small community.

Our location is one of the best in Central Florida and yet we are located in a very private, peaceful, quiet complex--Royal Palm Bay. Out on the patio of our master bedroom, it is so inviting. We can view the protected forested area and listen to the sounds of the birds. One time we even heard the sounds of an owl !! You may also discover many different types of birds. So if you like birds, bring your binoculars!

On 192 there are places to rent bikes. There is also a place to rent seg-ways. There is also a surfing area that provides surfboards.

There is also a carnival with the traditional rides (merry-go round) and (Ferris wheel).

Royal Palm Bay has 3 different ponds where you can discover different types fish and other different types of water animals and wild life. It is very peaceful and relaxing when we take walks around Royal Palm Bay. It is such a quiet retreat and a wonderful place to relax and enjoy your family.
