Disney Rental Home with Private Heated Pool, Minutes from Major Attractions



Updated: 26-Nov-2016
Encantada Resort, Kissimmee, Florida - Located in Beautiful, Secure, Gated Resort only 10 Minutes from Disney World

Our Florida rental home is situated in an enviable position only 10 minutes from the main entrance of Disney World.

We are in a private, gated resort with many outstanding on site facilities, these include 2 large swimming pools, 2 spa pools, catch and release fishing lake, play park, and a clubhouse with a gym, games rooms and free wi-fi.

Just off site are many beautiful golf courses.

Our home is on a slightly elevated level giving wonderful views over the peaceful lake and resort, but allowing for our own pool and patio to be private and not overlooked at the rear.

We can sleep up to 9 comfortably as well as a travel cot for a baby to use.

All the essentials for an unforgettable holiday are included from bed linen and towels to crockery and washing machine.

Our home was built in 2007 and in 2008 when we bought it we completely re-furbished the house to a luxurious standard giving it a modern and homely feel, everything has been chosen to help you have a relaxing stay in the holiday capital of the world.

In 2014 we upgraded and re-newed many items in our home, and again in June 2015 when we visited we did the same again, so hopefully making your holiday a more enjoyable experience.

We offer generous discounts for repeat guests, and we now have many taking full advantage of this ............ one family have even bought a house a few doors down the street from us and we have enjoyed a few evening drinks with them comparing notes ;) For us and Encantada a fabulous Advert !!

About the Owner

Hello, I now live in Singapore with my husband Brian, I have 3 grown up children, Samantha, Barry and David, and a beautiful granddaughter Lily who are still living back in Scotland.

In 2008 I sold a business I had started in 1999 and decided to invest the money in a holiday home. Florida was the place for us, so with my daughter Samantha, we went on a house hunt, we had a brilliant time and as an added bonus we found our ideal home!!

We have decorated and furnished our home to a very high standard. Last year, and again this year we have carried out some upgrades and renewals that have kept our home looking and feeling unique at Encantada.

We Love our 2nd home and hope that you will too, all we ask is you look after it and respect it like it was your own

Happy Holidays

Hiya Caroline, how are you?

Just a note to let you know we had a fantastic time at the house again and gutted we're home. Was another great holiday and thanks for the use of your house again.

Hopefully we'll use your home again if and when we return, though we're planning on moving about a bit next time to see the keys and the gulf coast.

I'll be in touch in the future again.

Beautiful well kept property with everything you will need and very helpful owner.

  • 5 of 5

This property is simply lovely. It is spotlessly clean and had everything that we needed and more. Our children loved the splash pool. Caroline is delightful. She is so helpful, answering any questions promptly and is very friendly. We absolutely loved our stay in this property and would have no hesitation in recommending it to friends and family. Encantada is a lovely place to stay. It is close everything we needed including Disney, restaurants and supermarkets. We will be looking to return to Florida ourselves in the future and would want to stay in this property when we do return.

Fantastic stay in Orlando

  • 5 of 5

This property was everything we hoped it would be. The house is beautifully decorated and comfortable. Fantastic to be able to come back to this place after a long day at the parks. My children especially loved the pool outside to be able to cool off when we got home. The beds were extremely comfortable and I slept as well as I do in my bed at home. The resort itself is great and we used the resort pool a couple of times which was a welcome break from the hustle and bustle of the parks everyday. I loved the location also, supermarkets, pharmacies and eateries all on hand within a few minutes from the house. We would definitely recommend your rental home to anyone looking to visit Orlando. Little shout out to Miller's Ale House which is just down the road. Ate here a couple of times and loved it. Great food and staff!

My wonderful second stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

The accommodation was chosen purely from the fact we had stayed before and found our first stay absolutely perfect. The second stay was equally as impressive with some upgrades made from the first time we stayed. The barbecue had been renewed and swimming pool area renewed and painted. Apart from its great location it is secure and the local amenities are great to use. It is also well situated for all Disney parks and you can be on International drive within 10 minutes ab fab comes well recommended.

The property is well located, it's perfect for families as it has everything you need. The pool is lovely to relax around if you don't want to go to far. We would definately stay at this property for a third time if we return to Orlando.

Owner's Response: Thank you Tina, I certainly hope the Typhoon that hit Florida when you and Adrian were there hasn't put you off too much ........ and I'd just like to thank you again for 'looking after' our house during this worrying time. I know we would love to have you stay if you return to Orlando in the future!! Caroline x

Stunning home from home

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic place for a Florida vacation! From the minute we arrived we were impressed with the stylish, fresh decor and the cleanliness of the house - it was spotless!! Everything has been thought of by the owner to make your holiday as hassle free & comfortable as possible, from the fully equipped kitchen to the travel cot to the complimentary mini toiletries. The location is perfect, less than 10 minutes to Disney and only 2 minutes from the 192 with its vast selection of restaurants & supermarkets. The house is obviously very well managed & we will definitely be staying here again!! Thank you Caroline for a perfect stay.

Disgustingly dirty

  • 1 of 5

In the ad the owner states her home has a deep clean before visitors arrive, all lies. Nothing had been cleaned, it was dirty damp and mouldy and I have all photographic evidence.

Infested with cockroaches. Damp on walls mould around the shower cubicles and tiles, dirty drip tray in fridge lots of light bulbs missing, piles of hair on carpets, blocked sinks with dirty stagnant water still sat In the sink not draining away. Owner very unhelpful stayed 2 nights out of 21, Refused refund even after producing the evidence. Unbelievable. Avoid at all cost.

Owner's Response: I would like to address my response to all the readers who may chance upon this review and just let you know that as always there are two sides to every story. This guest has unfortunately chosen to give a very biased, completely over exaggerated and very untrue version of what could have been a very easily fixed minor problem he found the day after he checked in. This is a very long and complicated story now. Which obviously I don't want to go into details on here, but what I will say is that I have had to spend a lot of money repairing damage that was caused by this guest, hence why I have not refunded his money, I have actually lost money!! I too have photo's of the damage that was caused and also know that Paypal have refused to refund his payment so his only way to get even is to try and dirty my name on here. That makes me sad and has caused me a lot of distress. I thank all my wonderful guests, past, present and of course future who have never given me a minutes distress and are a pleasure to deal with. I can assure you, you all mean everything to me and I will continue to give you all the same care, attention and hospitality you have been enjoying for many years now. I am so proud of the fact that around 60 - 70% of my guests are repeat bookings and I know if my house was as this guest has described it, and I was as he says this would not be the case!! Thank you for taking the time to read to the end Caroline x

From the Owner

After driving all round Orlando and looking at dozens of homes, many of which, were larger but much further from all the 'to do things', we were immediately drawn to the fabulous facilities including the large community pools, clubhouse, fishing lake, beautiful landscaping and friendliness at Encantada. The resort, on the edge of Kissimmee and genuinely less than 10 minutes drive from the gates of Disney and no more than 30 minutes from any of the other star attractions, is fantastic. Being only 25 minutes from the Airport was another bonus for us, as was the fact that we are only an hour from either the East or West coast beaches. Inside Encantada is like another world, it is quiet, relaxed and hard to believe you are actually so close to all the action ..... the Perfect Location !

Activity and Interests

Car: recommended

Special interest holidays:

Golfers flock to central Florida to play golf all year round with many preferring to visit between October and April when the temperature is warm and humidity is low making it more comfortable to play.

Our rental prices are also less during this time !!

We also welcome guests who wish to stay long term over the winter to enjoy the mild temperatures and avoid the bad weather at home, we can arrange special rates for these guests so please ask for details.


We are approximately 50 minutes drive from Cocoa Beach, Cape Canaveral and the famous Daytona beach on the Atlantic coast. About 1 hours drive to the west coast on the Gulf of Mexico are several beautiful powder white sandy beaches including, Clearwater, St Petes and the beautiful Marina at Sarasota is a must see for boat lovers and those wanting to try deep sea fishing.

An abundance of excellent restaurants here serve wonderful fresh seafood or just sit with a drink and relax for a while!


Orlando International Airport is a 20-30 minute drive away. Orlando Sanford takes around 45 minutes. Both are convenient for visiting our home.

Car hire is highly recommended, fuel is cheap and the road network is very easy to navigate and well signed. Maps are given out by car hire companies and GPS can be hired for an extra charge.

We are happy to recommend the ones we have used.


10 minutes to Walt Disney World - Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney MGM Studios, Animal Kingdom, Downtown Disney, Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon. 10 minutes to Sea World and Aquatica. 20 minutes to Universal Studios, wet n wild and International Drive.

Shopping at Mall of Millenia, Florida Mall, Winter Garden, Premium and Prime Outlets are all just between 20 & 30 minutes away.

The quaint town of Celebration with its many cafes and restaurants is less than 5 minutes away, & well worth a visit.

Further Details:

Encantada is sited off the US 192 road, along here are literally 100's of shops and restaurants. A 10 minute walk from the house there is a 7/11 convenience store with petrol, MacDonalds, Pizza Hut, and Bruno's Italian.

2 minutes drive along the 192 there is an enormous Super Target selling absolutely everything and more!!

If you prefer Walmart our nearest one is about 5 minutes drive from the house, along the I27.

Many of the local shops have ATM machines inside and Walmart often have bank branches in them.

Tickets for many attractions are sold everywhere and many discount vouchers for these, as well as for local eateries and restaurants can be picked up locally, including at the Encantada clubhouse where there are many offers available.

From the Owner

Our lovely house although very close to all the attractions is situated in a superb resort that is so peaceful and tranquil it feels like another world. We can relax in our own private pool and do absolutely nothing all day or we can take a very short drive to anywhere and do virtually anything Florida has to offer. In the evening we are lucky to be so close to dozens of very good and reasonably priced eateries something we love!! We also stay home and BBQ a lot and chill by the pool with a wee vino. We are opposite some of the best golfing in Orlando, at Orange Lakes, where there is a choice of courses to suit all players. The catch and release fishing lake with rod rental from the clubhouse is another great way to relax, all in all we love our holday home and are sure you will too.
