About the property

Stunning Lake View 3 Bedroom 2 Bath Sleeps 6 Fully Equipped Kitchen Washer Dryer

Imagine taking your morning coffee overlooking the water and tree tops with singing birds just outside your private screened balcony, before heading off to Disney World Resort which is only a 10 minute drive away.

Legacy Dunes has been awarded the XXXXXXX Certificate of Excellence in 2016 for the fifth year running.

Lakeside Penthouse is open plan and has high cathedral ceilings. It has recently been completely refurbished and freshly painted in May 2016. Brand new furniture, a 42' flat screen TV with premium cable and DVD player. There are board games and DVD's to keep you entertained, but probably more importantly Free WIFI for everyone!

SNOWBIRDS AND RENTALS OVER A MONTH PLEASE ASK FOR SPECIAL RATES!

Being much more than a hotel room, there is a fully equipped kitchen with an oven, dishwasher, microwave and a full washer and dryer in the utility room, along with ironing equipment. Not to mention the little luxuries in life such as a coffee maker, electric kettle, toaster and blender.

If you fancy making a meal and having a cosy night in there is enough seating around the dining table for 6 people.

Our beautiful 3 Bedroom 2 Bathroom third floor penthouse sleeps 6 people ..... and no noisy footsteps from above! All bedrooms have views over the lake, a flat screen TV with Cable and DVD players and all have enormous closets. There is a King Bedroom with En Suite Bathroom, a Queen Bedroom which shares a large bathroom with the Twin Bedroom where the bathroom is also En Suite. There are plenty of bath and hand towels for you to use so you don't have to bring your own, and there are even some beach towels for you to take down to the pool areas.

The moment you enter Legacy Dunes Resort you'll become enveloped in a tropical setting with the beautiful waters and fountains. There are two gorgeous pools in the grounds. The main pool is heated and will treat your senses to a Caribbean vacation, with it's zero entry walk-in which is great for the little ones. There are plenty of sun loungers and cabanas if you need to spend a little time out of the Florida sunshine. The smaller pool is more formal and perfect if you want a little peace and quiet.

If you're feeling little more active there is an air conditioned fitness centre and plenty to do outdoors. There's a floodlit tennis court, basketball court, beach volleyball, golf practice cage, golf chipping area and a great playground for the kids situated by the quieter pool, overlooking the lake. Please note there are no elevators at Legacy Dunes.

The Kissimmee area is filled with activities, parks, and night life for people of all ages. Legacy Dunes is close to Walt Disney World, the “Happiest Place on Earth”! Whether you are looking for The Magic Kingdom, Epcot Centre, Animal Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, Typhoon Lagoon, or Blizzard Beach, all of Disney’s magic is just minutes away. The theme parks Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure as well as Sea World are also nearby. If shopping is your idea of vacation bliss, we offer easy access to the Orlando Premium Outlet, Millennium Mall, and the Florida Mall. Of course, there is also the nightlife: Disney Springs, Universal Studios City Walk, Downtown and Old Town Kissimmee or the infamous International Drive area.

About Mark and Vicky Lord

Welcome to our beautiful vacation Home, the Lakeside Penthouse at Legacy Dunes. We are Vicky and Mark from the North of England. If you choose our home for your holiday, rest assured we will do everything possible to make sure you enjoy your stay, as we understand how important your time away on holiday is!

Mark and Vicky Lord purchased this condo in 2014

Why Mark and Vicky Lord chose Kissimmee

We love spending our family holidays in Orlando and especially at Legacy Dunes Resort, which has received the Certificate of Exellence in 2015 for the Fourth Year Running. In fact we loved it at Lakeside Penthouse so much, when it came up for sale we just had to make it our second home. Here's to hoping that you enjoy it just as much as we do!

What makes this condo unique

Why should you stay at Lakeside Penthouse?

Well it's really quite simple. It has it all!

We fell in love with the the views around the perfectly manicured resort. Especially the views from our private screened balcony or sitting in our living area overlooking the lake, while we relax in the evening. There's also the the two pools, floodlit tennis court, games for the kids, golf practice net and lovely nature walks around the gardens and lakes. All this along with the fact that it's only a ten minute drive to the theme parks, makes it the perfect home away from home.

Lakeside Penthouse - exactly as advertised!

  • 5 of 5

We chose this accommodation based on the owners' description and the glowing reviews, and are happy to report that everything met or exceeded our expectations. The third floor location afforded a great water view from the balcony, the condo was quiet and the bed comfortable, three things that are important to us when we travel. The Legacy Dunes complex was nice as well; even though we were vacationing at a busy time the pools never seemed overly crowded or noisy. The highest compliment would be a return visit, and although Lakeside Penthouse was already booked for our dates next year, we were able to secure another unit within the association. It will have to be very nice indeed to live up to the wonderful experience we had at Lakeside Penthouse. Thanks, Mark and Vicky, for checking in to see that all was well while we were there and sharing your lovely home!

Excellent place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely two week holiday at Legacy Dunes. The accommodation was clean, comfortable and very well equipped for out family of five. The kids enjoyed the pool area and it is really well located for visiting all the Disney/Universal parks. Thank you Vicky and Mark for all the excellent communication and for making our first family holiday to Orlando such a great experience.

Beautiful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The condo was in really nice condition, very clean and roomy enough for me and my 3 kids so that we were not on top of each other. The location is wonderful, near the parks and just off the main strip with all sorts of dining options. There was a lot of things to do in the complex such as basketball, volleyball, tennis, a gym, a rec room and of course the 2 different pools. I would recommend this to anyone traveling with a family since the days you do not go to the parks, there is stuff to do right in the complex without spending any money.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Orlando International & Sanford International at 28 Miles Car: recommended

Legacy Dunes is located 6 miles west of the magical Disney World resort and only a short 10 minute drive away. The resorts location along with the gated security, clubhouse and community facilities make it the perfect place to stay on your Disney vacation. Only minutes away from all the excitement, yet set in beautiful tranquil surroundings.

What is there left to be said about the amazing World of Walt Disney? Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, Hollywood Studios and Epcot Centre, along with two water parks (Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon). As if that isn't enough there is also Universal's two stunning theme parks... Islands of Adventure and Universal Studios including the magical Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

When you've finished at the parks and worked up a big appetite, Highway 192 is home to over 100 restaurants. From steak houses such as Longhorn Steakhouse and Logan's Roadhouse to seafood eateries like Joe's Crab Shack and Bonefish Grill. There are also all of the staples in the restaurant industry such as Chili's, Cracker Barrel, Carrabba's, Olive Garden, Ponderosa and Golden Corral. Not to mention all the diners and fast food restaurants available to chose from.

All this literally within minutes of the gorgeous perfectly manicured setting of Legacy Dunes.
