Overview

About the property

Villa in Indian Creek, Kissimmee, Florida, USA - 3 Miles From Disney World

If the kids are happy, comfortable and occupied, the adults will feel happy and relaxed too! That’s why we have aimed our house at making sure the children enjoy themselves. We’ve themed two of the bedrooms so they can feel more at home, put TVs in every room, some have DVD players and one has a PlayStation 2 (American Games/DVDs only). There is also a 52” projection TV in the lounge. There are 2 master bedrooms with pool access and ensuites, a double bedroom and two twin themed rooms .

The pool/spa is south facing with a covered lanai too. The game room has a pool table, air hockey table and foosball. There is also a dartboard and various board games.

About Sarah and Bob Hooper-Jennings

We are a family of 4 living on the south coast of England and our children have 10 years between them. We struggled to find holidays that would occupy the age gap of our children and so decided to visit Florida where we knew there was something for everyone to enjoy. We were hooked !

We stayed in hotels but found that as the children grew up, we needed to pay for 2 hotel rooms and with both of them being energetic, space became a problem. We also missed cooking for ourselves, and also quite fancied having a private pool. A friend suggested staying in a villa and we have never looked back. We decided to purchase our own villa a few years ago and we are very pleased to have done so. Now our eldest goes out there with his friends every year too.

Sarah and Bob Hooper-Jennings purchased this villa in 2006

Why Sarah and Bob Hooper-Jennings chose Disney / Orlando

We were shown around a number of properties and were advised to consider single level villas over two storey houses as this would make it easier for multiple families. This particular villa ticked all of the boxes. I.e. 5 Bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, a private pool and spa and most importantly, close to all of the Disney Theme Parks.We were surprised at the amount of space these villas have and the high ceilings make them look even more so. We love having our own south facing pool and the covered lanai is very useful for the shade.The game room is such an added bonus too.

Indian Creek has 2 parks a couple of minutes walk away and tennis courts.

The local shops and restaurants are within easy reach and there is also a medical centre.

Lovely Clean Spacious Villa

  • 5 of 5

Loved this place, especially the pool, Jacuzzi and pool area. The pictures do not do the villa justice. Rooms were great. Sarah was a breeze to deal with. Would definitely rent again and recommend to others.

Wonderful vacation home!

  • 4 of 5

I would give this rental 5stars, but to be fair, I only gave my review 4stars because we had one issue with the pool and getting a hold of the property management. But it wasn't the owner's fault (the heater turned out to broken), and they were quick to refund the extra money we paid for that.

I absolutely loved working with Sarah!

Our top reasons for choosing this property were; # of beds/bedrooms, location, and price. All of those were just right! We did stay off-season, which helped with the cost, but aside from the HomeAway fee, there were no extra fees in the quote. The pool-heat was a separate cost, as explained in the listing. *Note - the pricing is in £, not US $, so you need to do some exchange rate math.

The home was just as described, with plenty of room for our group. We had two families,; 4 adults & 5 children (ages 5-15). It was clean and nicely furnished. It was very kid-friendly, which we appreciated- the boys especially loved the converted garage game room.

We spent almost every day visiting Disney and Universal, so we just needed a comfortable and convenient place to stay. This home is just minutes south of Disney, and right off one of the main highways, on which is located all the stores and restaurants you could want. My tip is to go west just a little further to the Target. Also there is a Dollar Store close by and they sell many "travel-size" items.

I would definitely recommend this property and will stay there again. We had been planning and saving for this trip for years, and so we tried to find the best deals in our travel costs - this property was such a good deal, in my opinion.

**extra notes - check the pantry before you hit the grocery store. There were a few dry items like salt, pepper, etc. that we didn't to buy. We Did need to buy paper towels and extra toilet paper, which we just didn't think of the first time we went shopping. Hope that helps!

Owner's Response: I'm so pleased you had a wonderful time staying at our villa and can only apologise again for the pool heat not working. It is unfortunate that these things will happen from time to time. I do hope the refund plus the compensation helped. We would welcome you back any time and thank you for the great review. Kind Regards, Sarah

NICE CLEAN PLACE

  • 3 of 5

Good clean place to stay while visiting Disney/Orlando area. Pool didn't work while we were there and hot tub. (one of the reasons for booking this place) Very disappointing, however on a good note the place feels like home, very clean (I am quiet picky with that) and nice details added to the place which made this stay very pleasant. Would recommend this place to friends visiting Orlando.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review and I'm pleased you liked the villa. I can only apologise for the pool heat not working. Unfortunately as with all electrical items, they do break from time to time. The part had to be ordered in, which took a while. I do hope though that the refund of pool heat plus the compensation helped. Kind Regards, Sarah

Great Disney vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week with 11 people for a family Disney Vacation! It was easy to get in, clean, and was very room'y. 5 bedrooms was a bonus, my kids loved the game room in the garage. It was close to everything Disney about 10 mins, the only minor issue was none of the TV's in the 5 bedrooms worked, but it wasn't a big deal to us, It was February so we did not utilize the pool at all, but it looked like it would have been very nice. we will defiantly consider this home again for a future trip!

Beautiful rental!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 2 adults and 3 children stayed at this lovely, spacious villa for 2 weeks in October 2016.

We were very happy with the rental. The property is in a quiet residential area which was very much appreciated when coming back from the various theme parks.

The villa is well maintained and very clean. The information provided at the time of rental and the information pack supplied in the villa were greatly appreciated as was the was fantastic communication and customer service from the villa owners.

It really is in an excellent location, literally minutes from Disney as well as numerous restaurants and grocery stores. We hired a car for our stay which I would recommend.

The children especially loved the private pool and jacuzzi (which we paid extra to heat) and the themed bedrooms.

We really enjoyed our stay and would not hesitate to return here in the future.

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

Just booked for the 5th time, and we never stay in the same place twice when we go away but this is an exception to the rule. The location is excellent with lots of places to eat and shop just on the doorstep. Sarah is so helpful whenever we have needed anything. The house is now like home for us and has all the things we need to relax when we get back from a long day out. Started visiting when the kids were 11 and this year they are 22 and still wanted to stay here so it fits all ages. The local agent is also very quick to attend if there are any issues and we have only had one which was quickly resolved. All in all a great place to stay with easy access to anywhere you wish to visit and easy booking and help from the owners. Nothing to too much trouble.
