From the initial inquiry, it was very easy to deal with Sarah & Ken. They answered all of our questions and even accomodated special requests. Their website is full of helpful information already, but if you need anything else...you can always send them an email and they are very prompt to respond. Our group had a total of 11 adults and every single one of them said how much they enjoyed the house itself. It is so close to all the attractions. We loved every single detail and really enjoyed our stay. We most definitely are going again. Read more
Thank you very much for your lovely words, we do appreciate you taking the time and we're thrilled we all loved your stay with us. We hope to see you back again someday.
Thanks again, Sarah & Ken
August 2013 Vacation
Left on 12/26/2013 for a stay in August 2013 | Suzanne
This was a return visit for our family as we have previously stayed in the home with friends. It is well located, clean, comfortable and has all the amenities required for your stay. There are many things to keep the kids active if you do not feel like leaving the home. Ken and Sarah are very gracious hosts and make sure everything is ready and to your liking upon arrival - the added bonus of the welcome basket with the basics is great so that you do not have to run out to the grocery store right away if you arrive late or are tired. As we previously stayed in the home it was a welcome surprise to see the time taken to the upgrades that were added to the kitchen, bathroom, lanai by the pool as well as the picnic area that was installed by the pool. Our family loves it - a great place to stay and I would recommend it to anyone. Waterdown, Ontario, Canada Read more
Thanks very much for taking the time to review our home, it was a pleasure to welcome you back again and we're pleased you liked the upgrades! We would love to welcome you back again soon. Thanks! Sarah & Ken

Left on 07/31/2013 for a stay in July 2013 | Mike F
First time I have rented through an online service and was very nervous about it at first but the owner's did everything they said they would. They walked my group through the entire process from beginning to the end. The house was just as it appeared. We went with 2 other families for a total of 9 people with 3 kids. We actually had to look for people at times as the kids would disappear in the game room giving us a nice rest. The house was clean when we arrived and was stocked with some basic items that helped us as we arrived. The screened in pool area would transform at night giving us a great place to soak our feet and have a drink after a long day at the parks. The neighborhood around the house was very quiet as well and close to Disney and we had the added benefit of using the short cut given to us at the house saving us time getting into the parks by avoiding all major roads and getting onto Disney property with virtually no traffic. I would definitely rent from the owner's again with no hesitation. Read more
Thanks for your very kind comments and we are pleased to hear you made use of the shortcut, it can save lots of time in traffic! It's also nice to know you enjoyed the pool area in the evenings too, we have only just refurbished that area and we wanted to create somewhere everyone could kick back and relax after a hard day having fun at the parks!
Thanks for being such lovely guests to deal with, it would be our pleasure to welcome you back anytime at all.
Thanks again, Sarah & Ken
Best home for a family vacation
Left on 07/23/2013 for a stay in June 2013 | Kathy
We had a great time at Saran and Ken's home. They were great and called to make sure we had everything we needed. When they called we told them the blender was broken. They brought a new one in less than an hour. The home was very clean and had everything we needed. The amenities were better than we have ever had. The pool was really nice and very clean. We especially enjoyed having plenty of room in the living room for our entire family to sit. We will definitely go back the next time we go to Disney. Read more
Thanks very much for your review of our home, we do appreciate you taking the time and it's great to hear you all enjoyed your stay. I love the new Ninja Pro Blender we put in and I now have one at home too!
We shall be here anytime you come back to Orlando, so we hope we can say hello once again. Thanks again, Sarah & Ken

Our family of 10 vacationed at Serendipity for a week during spring break. The house accommodated us well and the location ideal if you are visiting the various theme parks. It was great to come back to Serendipity after spending a day in the crowded theme parks. The children had a pool to themselves and it was easy to keep track of them. The adults could lounge and the best part no one had to sit in a hotel room when the children went to bed. We had a couple minor issues with the house but Sarah and Ken took care of the issue right away. They made sure we had a good stay. Read more
Thank you very much for taking the time to write about your stay in our home, we are pleased to hear you had a great time and we hope we can welcome you back someday soon.

Another Great us Trip
Left on 10/28/2012 for a stay in September 2012 | Smudger
I cannot recommend this villa highly enough. This year, 2012, was our fifth time at Serendipity and it feels very much like home. The villa is well appointed with great facilities, including new domestic appliances and great themed bedrooms for the children. General decor is excellent and the villa is well kept and is clearly above others that seem to be available in this area. It is close to all the parks and in easy distance of great restaurants and shopping. On top of all this the service we receive from the villa owners and the local management is top quality and makes the whole experience just so great. We're already looking forward to our sixth trip - the only down side is that we can't get to stay as often as we'd like! Read more
Thanks very much for your kind words. It's been an absolute pleasure having you stay so many times, you are perfect guests! We look forward to welcoming you back 'home' soon :)
Perfect vacation home for extended families!
Left on 03/30/2012 for a stay in March 2012 | Dot
I chose Serendipity for our family vacation in Orlando primarily for two reasons: its proximity to Disney World, and the fact that all of its rooms are one one floor - a real advantage when several members of our extended family have mobility issues! I could not be more pleased with the choice I made, and recommend it without hesitation!
In every way Sarah and Ken went above and beyond what we have come to expect from our rental hosts: they have set the new bar against which we will compare all future rentals! We really appreciated their flexibility at the last minute in allowing us to drop off our luggage and groceries before the official check-in time, the promptness with which they responded to the minor problems we encountered, and the wealth of information they supplied prior to our arrival. In addition, they gave us great advice in planning ahead for rental of scooters and cars for several members of the family. The house itself was meticulously maintained and provided everything needed to make the week a pleasure. Our three grandchildren were thrilled with the two Disney-themed bedrooms and the huge library of Disney movies provided - they watched one every night before going to bed! A special short-cut to WDW made that trip so quick, we never regretted the decision to stay off the Disney World campus, and the grandkids surely enjoyed the pool and the game room as much as they did the visits to the parks!
Thank you very much Dot for your lovely words, they are very much appreciated and we are thrilled we were able to be a part of a vacation you all enjoyed so much.
Thank you for being perfect guests, we hope to welcome you back in the not too distant future.
Thanks again, Sarah & Ken.

Look no further, you will not be sorry, rent this home!!
Left on 12/03/2011 for a stay in November 2011 | Don R
My wife and I and our 2 adult kids stayed for one week. The home is great. 5 bed rooms, 3 with king beds, flat screen tv's and all have their own bathroom. Two have cabana doors leading to the pool. Ken and Sara think of everything. There is a libraries of books, Disney guides, cd's and dvd's as well as an ipod dock. It was very comfortable and spacious. With the game room and lanai there is 2,800 sq ft.
--Sometimes it is not about how great the home was but also about the service and the people. Ken and Sara throughout the entire process were fabulous to deal with and even more amazing when we got there. Frankly, we were leery about staying in a home rather than 2 hotel rooms and paying in full before seeing the place but it was everything and more than we expected. When we arrived there was waiting for us, what Ken called, a starter kit: bread, eggs, milk, OJ, Water, cereal, candy etc... There was even beer and wine.
--We did have 2 glitches, the internet was not working when we arrived and within 30 minutes Ken and Sara came over and fixed it. Also, the overhead lights in the great room were not working and Ken had an electrician over in no time and had it fixed.
--The last thing was my 30 year old daughter left behind her diamond necklace and we did not know it. When we arrived back home, 8 hours after we checked out and flew home, I had an email waiting for me from Ken and Sara advising me of the necklace being left behind together with and Ken's promise to send it back insured with a tracking number. Also, our security deposit was returned within less than 24 hours.
--What else can one say, but you will not be disappointed and you should look no further. The house and entire experience was wonderful. Oh by the way you are 6 minutes from animal Kingdom and close to all the parks. You are also minutes from any freeway you need. What a great location.
--Thank you Ken and Sara! Read more
Thank you so much Don for taking the time to provide your valued feedback. You and your family were perfect guests and a delight to deal with throughout all our correspondence.
I must say, the necklace your daughter left behind was absolutely beautiful, she has impeccable taste!
We look forward to welcoming you back to our home. Keep well in the meantime, Sarah & Ken.
We had a great time in a great home!!

We found this property through Trip advisor and were impressed by the quality of the reviews. We contacted the owners Ken and Sarah and were equally impressed by their repsonsiveness and professionalism. Their home has an excellent website and I can tell you everything you see is what you get. The day of our arrival was trouble free. It was my wife's birthday and as such I had arranged for a birthday cake to be at the home. Ken and Sarah gladly took care of the details which contributed to a nice surprise on our arrival.
The home was very a clean and well kept. The finishing and furniture are of high quality. Anything you could possibly need is available in the home from birthday candles, to baby cribs, to golf clubs, to games and movies, to pool toys to towels galore.
We had an issue with the i-pod docking station and had let Ken and Sarah know and the next day a new unit had been left for us. That is the type of service and attention you can expect. They even recommended some restaurants which truned out be very good choices.
The pool area and lani are excellent and was the perfect place to unwind with a cold beer after a long day at the parks.
We had high expectations based on the reviews and website...and those expectations were exceeded which is saying something.
Thanks Ken and Sarah for a great week in Kissimmee.

Fantastic Home From Home Villa and Excellent Communication
Left on 03/10/2011 for a stay in February 2011 | Campbell, Westwood and The Westworths
The villa is furnished to the highest quality, with a fully fitted kitchen, packed games room and excellent pool. Attention to detail is fantastic and the house looks like a show home when you arrive but soon feels very homely. There is a very good welcome pack filled with enough groceries for a few days. The location is near perfect and communication from the owners (Ken and Sarah) and the management compay, up to and during your stay, is excellent. My family and I (5 adults and 2 children) cannot recommend this villa highly enough and words don't do it justice. Please, please, please try it for yourself.
A Week in Serendipity was a Home away from home, in paradise!!
Left on 02/10/2011 for a stay in January 2011 | Caitlin
Our first trip to Florida with two other couples had us a little worried as of what to expect from our rental house, but boy were we pleasantly suprised!!
From the beautiful amenities (we all had king sized beds, our own bathrooms) to the amazing comfortable livingroom complete with Dvds galore, and our own pool and hot tub that we relaxed in everynight following our expeditions, it was so nice to have a place that felt like home (only better!) at the end of our long days.
We were blessed with extremely nice weather during our week and Sarah and Ken even provided us with sparkling wine and beer for our first night, New Years Eve! They make sure you are 100% taken care of between them (the owners) and the amazing, courteous management company. We could not think of a single thing that our house didn't have and enjoyed every minute in it. We will continue to tell everyone we know about this amazing house and hope to come back soon! A hotel/motel room cannot compare to not only the quality and value of Serendipity but the friendly personal service that has you leaving feeling like you're part of the Serendipity family of loyal return travellers!

We came down to Florida with a group of people, and this house was perfect for 4 separate families plus kids. The house is wonderfullly comfortable, clean, and beautifully decorated. It had everything we needed for the entire week. The best part of the house is the hospitality and customer service of the owners. Sarah and Ken are terrific and they have thought of everything to make the stay even more memorable. We would definitely stay here again!

We loved our stay! The themed rooms, Disney decor/toys, DVD collection and pool were thoroughly enjoyed by the kids. The house is spacious, spotless, fun and easy to feel at home in. We appreciated the keyless entry system - so convenient. Snacks/treats and basic rations were supplied, which was very thoughtful and much appreciated after a long trip! Computer with wifi, lots of Tv's and an extensive games room was more we needed!
It took us no time to get to Disney and we had a wonderful trip.
Thank you for the lovely accomodation!

We are seasoned Florida vacationers so have developed a good understanding of the area around Kissimmee and the accommodation available to holiday makers. This villa is at the top of the pile for comfort,quality, amenities and service from the owners. We are repeat users of this accommodation having stayed there several times over the last few years. We wouldn't consider staying anywhere else as the villa is perfectly situated for the parks and is close to great shopping and old town Kissimmee. If you don't want to go out there is enough in the villa to keep most people occupied and we feel this really makes the villa a genuine home from home.

Our family loved staying at the house. We had our family of three, my sister's family of three and my parents and we all stayed very comfortably in the house. It was a great location to get to the disney parks! It was clean and comfortable and Sarah and Ken were quick to answer any questions we had. We will stay here in the future again! Thanks!
"Serendipity" was one of the best parts of our Disney trip.
Left on 03/25/2010 for a stay in November 2009 | Dubious Traveler
I was quite apprehensive about booking a vacation
home on line. The owners were very patient regarding my concerns about paying for the home 'up front' since the only assurance that I had were the pictures on the web site (which were gorgeous), but as we all know, there are a lot of
scams on the internet. They answered all my questions and addressed my concerns as best they could. I am so very happy that we reached a trust level and I chose to stay at "Serendipity". The attention to details (even having ponchos in the closet) and instructions (the sand road short cut to Disney) for us were unbelievable and greatly appreciated. The home was beautiful and clean. It was wonderful to come home to Serendipity after a long day in the park; relax in the pool or hot tub, fix our own dinner and be together in the great room to watch one of the DVDs from their large selection. We could not have had this togetherness in a hotel (even a suite). Thank you for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home which was a wonderful part of our vacation.
No better place to spend Christmas and New Year with family!
Left on 03/18/2010 for a stay in December 2009 | Disney Daydreamer
We were fortunate enough to stay for three weeks in this fabulous home from home. Everything about it was just great - from the Christmas decorations outside and the Christmas tree inside, the pool, the well equipped kitchen, the games room, etc. They had thought of everything to make life easier. We loved the theming of the children's bedrooms, and the grown up feel to the other bedrooms and rest of the house. The living room meant that even our party of 10 could fit comfortably to watch TV or share memories of the day. The location was the best thing, literally only 5 minutes from Disney - exactly what it said on the website. Ken and Sarah were so helpful from our initial enquiry, with nothing being too much trouble. Now that we have stayed here, we don't want to stay anywhere else and we can't wait to return, although next time hopefully it will be a bit warmer.
