About Carol Martin


My husband and I bought this property because of its lovely lake view as we had just retired. When we stay there we use the time to ensure that it is tip top for the coming season.

Our aim is for your holiday to be as perfect as possible for example we try to offer late check outs at no extra costs.

We love Florida because there is so much to do (two weeks is just not enough) we believe every child (adult) should go at least once (but we do have guests who are returning for repeat visits).

We hope to welcome you soon, however if you choose elsewhere we wish you a wonderful trip.

Best Wishes

Carol and Mike.

Carol Martin purchased this villa in 2007

Why Carol Martin chose Kissimmee

The first time we walked into the villa we were amazed by its size, the cathedral ceilings made the ground floor look massive. The lake view was the final clincher that convinced us to buy the villa was because of its beautiful location yet so close to shops restaurants and Disney.

What makes this villa unique

Lake side location not over looked nice to sit outside in the pool area and watch the sun go down. Very quiet unless there are children they do get very excited!

This is the second time we have stayed at this property and would certainly use it again if we visit Florida for our next holiday.

Spacious place for our family of seven!

  • 4 of 5

Great place! Clean and spacious. Beds were comfy. My only "complaint" would be that it's a little old, so I had some allergy issues because I'm allergic to mold/mildew and dust. Not because it wasn't clean or taken care of, but because of the date of build and older furniture and accessories.

Beautiful villa in quiet location

  • 5 of 5

This is not my first visit to this wonderful holiday home. If visiting Florida again I would not stay anywhere else.

The villa is fully equipped with everything you would need to make your holiday comfortable and I have already recommended this villa to family and friends.

If you are visiting Orlando for the Disney parks they are close to the villa and easy to reach by car. If you are going to just chill and walk, everything is within walking distance for eating and drinking places.

What more can I say apart from it is a fabulous villa and both my husband and I had a fabulous time. Can't recommend it enough.

Spacious, Clean and in a Prime Location

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful two week stay at this very spacious and clean villa. This four bedroom home was immaculately kept with beautiful landscaping. It is obvious the owners take great pride in their vacation home.

Getting up every morning, having a coffee by the pool, in the screened in lanai just metres from the lake was more than we could have asked for.

The owners were very easy to get hold of and were quick to answer all inquires while in the process of booking. They were also very accommodating which made our vacation even more relaxing and memorable.

Location, location, location. Groceries, shopping and of course the Parks, all just a short drive away. We have stayed in a number of Villas over the years but this place was definitly one of our favourites. Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to stay in this wonderful 'home away from home'.

Best vacation house ever

  • 5 of 5

Best vacation house ever. From the beginning of the ease to get to it. the house is close to Disney and all the restaurants but yet when you're home if feels like they're far away it was very peaceful the house was beautiful and perfect. The house is very roomy they thought of everything between utensils some pool toys the only thing I can recommend is I should've got the pool heated. There's a cute small pond in the back which had a couple gators and some wildlife (small gators). It was great to go about The day and get exhausted and come home to such a peaceful and wonderful house I literally just got back from vacation and I'm already thinking about when I'm going back . hat goes off to you Carol and Mike Martin for such a beautiful and wonderful house .we will definitely be back

Beautiful & spacious villa

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful villa, it had everything we needed, and more, to make our holiday as enjoyable and relaxing as possible. We have teenage children and the amount of space meant we all had plenty of room. The weather was extremely hot during our stay but the close proximity to the Disney parks and the villa's pool, meant we could pop back easily each afternoon and escape the heat before heading back out in the evenings. The villa is beautiful and clean, well maintained, and it's location enables flexibility around what you want to do and when - much much better than staying in a hotel! Looking forward to a return visit

Car: recommended


Kissimmee is located in Central Florda and is less than 60 miles to either the east or west coast. This gives access to many fine beach and coastal areas. Cocoa beach, Daytona and Kennedy Space Center on the east, Tampa and Bush Gardens to the west. It is advisable when going to the coast to go early and avoid the weekends if possible. (Don't forget your maps, cold box and picnic equipment are provided in the villa).


There are 3 possible airports - Orlando International 30 mins, Sandford airport 50 mins and Tampa airport 60 mins.

Car hire is recommended but there is also a bus service which runs along the 192 highway. Taxis are also readily available.


All distances are approx: Local supermarket and restaurants 1 mile. Wal-mart 6 miles. Kennedy Space Center 60 miles. Disney main gate 3 miles. Seaworld 10 miles. Universal Studios 10 miles. Wet and Wild water park 10 miles. Air boats rides 10 miles. Horse Trail riding 5 miles. Several Golf courses, nearest one mile.

Further Details:

A car is definitely recommended, but there is a regular bus service that runs every half an hour along the 192. If you want to go out without the car it can get very uncomfortable in the heat waiting for a bus.
