The villa was in a prime location, central for the parks and shopping. The villa had everything we needed and was basically home from home.
Fantastic Family Home

This well appointed home is ideal for a family holiday, situated in Kissemee it is just a 30 minute drive to all the fun and magic of Disney.
The house has 2 double rooms with on suite and 2 twin rooms that share a family size bathroom.
With its open plan lounge/diner and kitchen it offers the opportunity for informal living.
The intergrated double garage offers a further surprise by being fitted with a full size American style pool table and Air hockey.
There are no local amenities (ie within walking distance) but there is a mall within a 10 minute drive.
Overall this is a great home and area for a holiday in Florida.
I would however like to mention that although the house does have a pool, it is expensive to heat during the cooler months of the year ($30/day, min 4 days, 2 days to heat). This being the only let down of our stay.

Property well laid out and plenty of space. Great pool - which the children loved. All the rooms were a good size and the addition of the pool table etc in the garage was also good. The location might seem far away from attractions, but having stayed in other properties, we found it fine.
The villa was a little 'tired' and could do with a face lift and paint job - looked a little un-cared for. The travel agents gave us incorrect directions which could have been a major problem had we not already known our way about - travel agents fault and nothing to do with the villa owner of course! At night the frogs 'sung' very very loudly - to the extent that we had to move rooms - would have been a problem had the villa been to full capacity. Warning - bring ear plugs!!!
All in all - good villa, good location, very clean and brilliant pool! Read more

We had a fantastic week at our Rental Home in Sandy Ridge Florida ! This is
the second time that we stayed in a vacation rental home instead of a hotel -- and it definitely surpassed all expectations!The house was closer to all the attractions than anyone could have hoped for and just a short drive to Tampa. The rooms very large and decorated beautifully. Entering the home to find the table already set for 6 was a fantastic touch making us feel at home. The pool and all the personal touches made it better than spending a week in a hotel. The staff at the Contempo Office were incredibly friendly and knowledgable about the area. Even recommending a fantastic Golf Course in the area which my husband thoroughly enjoyed. I look forward to booking my next vacation home in Florida with your offices in 2010. Again Fantastic job with having high quality homes for families such as ours to enjoy! Read more
