About the property

Lakeview Villa in Poinciana, Kissimmee, Orlando, Florida - 60 minutes of calls to Europe and all to US and Canada included, free Wifi, quiet residential estate

This lakeview villa is situated in Poinciana, Kissimmee, Central Florida. The villa has cathedral ceilings and so feels very light and airy. It is air conditioned and comes very well equipped. The rear of the villa overlooks a well stocked bass lake, where you can fish or simply watch the spectacular sunsets. This aspect makes the deck and pool area quiet during the day, whilst you sunbathe and swim. Unlike many villa we do not have any other pools to the left or the right of us so with the lake at the back you are never overlooked. The villa is situated in a quiet residential estate, close to Orlando Int Airport and within about an hour and a half drive from Sanford Int Airport. It is within easy reach of all major attractions such as Disney and Universal Studios, the area also has several Golf courses, Wild life preserves and access at Southport to lake Tohopekaliga for airboat rides or fishing. Free international, long distance & local telephone calls, and WIFI access.

About The Owner

I live in Cheshire and worked for the same company for 27 years before giving up the rat race.

My family and I have been holidaying in Florida for the last 11 years, my first visit was in 1979 when my Grandparents took me to visit my Aunt and we drove from Washington DC to Disney and I became hooked. As my Aunt moved around the States with her family I visited several other States but kept coming back to Florida, and in 2000 decided to buy a place for the whole family to enjoy.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2000

Why The Owner chose Kissimmee

We choose this location as it is near enough to all the attractions to go everyday but far enough away from the hustle and bustle to not be part of the rat race.

The estate is a residential estate and so there are always neighbours coming and going, which increases the security in our neighbourhood.

The lake view was one of the main drivers for this location, the sunsets are spectacular! It also means that the rear of the villa will never be overlooked.

What makes this villa unique

The peace and quiet is something you need to experience to believe, during the day you can be out by the pool and the only interruptions to your relaxation will be the various birds who visit the lake, or the odd fisherman trying to hook a few bass!

There are plenty of places to get your groceries or take outs, and only a short drive away there are more restaurants than you could eat at during your holiday. Even now we still find new places to try.

Free calls and WIFI access is so convenient no more searching for phone cards or waiting for dial up to keep you in touch with family or friends!

To help you get the most out of your holiday once you book I send you a comprehensive pack all about the villa, the location and the restaurants we have tried and enjoyed.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was our 9th visit to Florida and our 8th using Poinciana as a base. The location and villa was perfect, offering us all the comforts and facilities that our group of 5 adults required for a eventful and still relaxing holiday. If you want to enjoy all that central Florida has to offer but escape the hustle and bustle of the area directly around the attractions then Poinciana and Peppermill Villa is the place to be. Poinciana is a fairly small community with excellent supermarkets, restaurants and take away establishments. It is a quite neighbourhood, removed from the busier areas but still within easy access to the theme parks, cinemas, attractions and shopping malls and outlets.

Peppermill Villa exceeded our expectations (easily the best villa we have used) and provided us with all the comforts and facilities for a relaxing holiday. The villa is equiped to the highest of standards We felt at home almost immediately and had more than enough space for our party to enjoy each others company and to enjoy quieter moments during our stay. The pool was a most welcome aspect, a small lake providing a great background, as we relaxed and enjoyed the sunshine. The pool was cleaned every Tuesday during our three week stay. It was hard to believe that the area and villa had been hit by Hurricane Irma only a few days before we arrived.

During our three weeks we enjoyed a number of visits to Universal Studios (our grown up daughters adding a concert and Halloween Horror nights to their visits), the cinema at the Loop, 3 TampaBay Rays baseball games, Kennedy Space Center, Blue Man Group at Universal and many great restaurants and shopping outlets. The weather wasexcellent for September-October, with temperatures reaching 95.

Sarah our host has maintained the villa's high standards. Sarah kept in regular touch prior to our visit and her written notes were very helpful in settling in to the villa, town and wider area.

Her management company who we contacted once were very professional, dealing with our enquiry politely and efficiently.

We had the best visit to date, so much so that we have booked Peppermill Villa for a visit in Seprember 2018.

Best vacation rental we have ever stayed at!

  • 5 of 5

12/15/17-12/22/17 This was the best vacation rental we have ever stayed at! The

house is beautiful, clean and fully stocked. Plenty of room for six adults and

one active 2 ½ year old. The pool is so nice and relaxing as is the beautiful

lake behind the house. Sarah is wonderful to work with. She stays in contact

with you from the time you book up until after you get home. Any issues were

handled quickly and efficiently. We were able to fish in the lake and enjoyed

catching some nice bass. My nephew loved the fishing as well as swimming in the

pool. The pool safety features really helped ease our mind with him around.

Anytime the doors to the pool area or garage are opened, an alarm goes off

(nothing too loud) and alerts you someone has opened the door. There was a

safety fence around the pool so we didn’t have to worry about him running into

the pool. The doors exiting the screened pool area have high door handles, so we

didn’t have to worry about him running toward the lake either. My daughter who

lives in the Orlando area stayed with us and the kitchen had all we needed to

prepare a Christmas dinner for her one night. There are so many extras at the

house - pool towels, floats, strollers, a cooler, ice packs, first aid kits

(including moleskin – a must if you get blisters from walking in the parks),

extra batteries, trash bags, etc. We enjoyed visiting Disney, Sea World,

Discovery Cove (swimming with the dolphins!) and Blue Springs State Park (Orange City, FL – manatees!). We shopped at Disney Springs and Ikea. The garage was nice to be able to park the truck in with all of our Ikea finds and not worrying about them getting wet or being stolen. The neighborhood was nice and quiet and we loved looking at all the Christmas lights. We were blessed finding Sarah and her house and look forward to another stay.

Great family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 3 weeks with our two boys (aged 18 and 20)

Prior to our stay the communication and information from Sarah was fantastic.

The villa exceeded our expectations, very spacious and comfortable in a quiet residential area outside of Kissimmee.

For me the best thing about the villa was the pool,aside from the swimming it is very peaceful to just sit and chill with my book, the view over the lake is stunning especially as the sun sets. Quite enjoyed watching the lightening in the distance as well!

Locally there are supermarkets and restaurants, mostly fast food although I would recommend Dennys for breakfast, Wayback make excellent burgers and Slice of New York is a hidden gem. We did discover a diner a short drive away which we liked called Woodsbys, worth the short drive.

We never did the parks so no comments about the drive etc.

I would recommend Kennedy Space Centre, a fantastic day out.

We loved our time there and would recommend the villa to all our friends and family. If we're ever in Florida again we would definitely be staying here.

Thank you Sarah!

Greta villa and place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here a week and it was a lovely family visit, this is in a quiet area of Kissimmee and I am so pleased we stayed here. It felt safe and the villa has a great location with all the amenities and good access to the theme parks.

The villa is as described and well suited for either a week or a fortnight stay.

You should not have any worries about staying here, it was easy to find and had everything you would need for a relaxing stay. It felt like a home for our stay, you have the privacy of your own pool area and also all the Bass fish to catch in the lake ! Saw some lovely sunsets as we sat out at night.

The supermarkets are near and the large shopping Malls are less than an hour away.

When I did contacted the owner, before our trip, all my questions were answered quickly.

I really have no problem at all in recommending this villa and would definitely come back to both the villa and area.

Stayed at the villa for eight nights during our holiday to Florida. Communication with the owner was excellent from the time of booking till our arrival. the villa was lovely with all the things needed for our stay. the villa was very clean for our arrival and there was plenty of towels and bed linen provided. we even had a family of 12 ducklings resident at the villa which were so cute. The villa is in a residential area but close to shops and all amenities. Although it was a short drive to the parks we were so pleased to come back after a busy day and chill out in the lovely pool. Would definitely recommend to our friends and family

Wonderful villa and location

  • 4 of 5

The pool was especially enjoyed by the grandchildren.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review Peter. Future guests may benefit from the points you made in your email too. I hope to welcome you and your family back in the future. I will get the washing line fixed. "Good evening Sarah, First of all I would like to say how much the grandchildren and I enjoyed the villa for the last 10 days. For the grandchildren it was certainly the pool that made the difference to the holiday. The villa was wonderful and fulfilled our dreams for accommodation and location perfectly. We trust we have left the villa as you expected but when we arrived we noticed that the extendable clothes line in the garage was broken do it was not possible to tie off the line. I failed to find a replacement but felt I should point out the fault. I will definitely be recommending your villa to friends and hopefully be using it again myself. Best regards Peter "
