This Excellent Vacation Home is of the Excellent Standard category. The villa is situated on a quiet cul-de-sac (no through traffic) in the sub-division Indian Ridge, Kissimmee, close to the SR417 (Greeneway) and SR429. It is therefore only minutes to the Walt Disney World, Universal Studios and Sea World theme parks plus some of the world’s best golf courses. This villa offers free high-speed internet (Wi-Fi) plus free local and long-distance calling within the United States and Canada.
The villa has many extras to make your stay enjoyable. It has been furnished to a very good standard. The great floor plan places the open, spacious... kitchen right in the middle of the living room, family room, dining room and 4 bedrooms.
Upon entering the villa, there is the airy living room to the right, with the dining area towards the rear. The well fitted kitchen with breakfast table is found straight ahead. On the left of the kitchen there is the cozy family room with large flat screen TV (48”) and DVD player.
The kitchen includes a full size oven, microwave, large fridge-freezer with ice-maker and water dispenser, waste disposal unit and dishwasher. There is also a full range of electrical appliances and utensils – everything you could want in your home away from home.
The Master bedroom has a Queen size bed and cable TV, with en suite bathroom offering dual sinks, walk-in shower, toilet and direct pool access (very convenient for that quick shower before or after a refreshing swim); the second bedroom also offers a Queen size bed and cable TV. The other two bedrooms feature 2 Single beds each. These bedrooms share the second bathroom, with shower tub, vanity and toilet. All four bedrooms have plenty of closet space and a ceiling fan (in addition to the central air conditioning).
From the family room, kitchen and dining area you look onto the attractive pool area. Through sliding doors you have access to the large pool deck (screened in) with the inviting, private pool. Pool deck chairs allow for that tasty breakfast ‘al fresco’ and sun loungers allow for great late night, pool side relaxing. The pool is solar heated through solar panels on the roof. Additional pool heating is not available at this time.
Near the hallway is the door to the garage where the washing machine and dryer are located. Iron and ironing board are present too.
As Excellent Vacation Homes is the local management company looking after this property 365 days a year, any technical or other issue is usually prevented before it even gets a chance to develop. But, our 24-hour cover service is always available should you require it during your stay. The villa is fully air conditioned for those very hot days and has reverse air for those colder days.

The property was everything we were looking for in accommodation for our Disney trip. It was perfectly situated close to the parks but in a quiet spot away from the crowds. The amenities such as the pool, WIFI, big TV and barbecue were all excellent. We would definitely stay in the house again and recommend it to others. If we had to pick one thing to criticize it would be that the decor is somewhat dated and could do with bringing up to date, as it felt like it was stuck in the 1980s. However, that didn't spoil our enjoyment of the house or the trip. Overall, staying there was a very good choice. Read more

The rental process was easy and the owners were quick to respond to any questions we had. The home was wonderful and just as described online. Clean rooms, beautifully decorated and the kids LOVED the pool! It was so close to all the Disney/Universal parks,
yet off the main strip. Perfect location, quiet and close. We couldnt have asked for a better stay. Read more

I expected the kitchen to have condiments such as salt & pepper, ketchup, etc. I was not aware that we were expected to wash the towels or put in new trash bags. That would not have been a problem if the house had soap detergent and trash bags. There was not even an extra roll of toilet paper! I had to go to a store to buy toilet paper, trash bags, detergent & dryer sheets, etc. It would not have been a problem had I been aware, but there was nothing I read to indicate I was required to buy the products.

Hi Denise, thank you for a great review and your feedback. We understand your disappointment if you were counting on finding the items described above upon your arrival. Typically, in professionally managed vacation homes, guests do provide their own supplies of e.g. dish washing and laundry detergent. As a courtesy, we supply a small starter pack, often sufficient for guests staying 3-4 nights only. Each trash bin should have a clean bag in it though, so our apologies if that was not the case upon your arrival. Thank you again and we look forward to welcoming you again.
