About Stuart Boyd

We are Stuart and Lesley and we live with our two daughters in Manchester. We first visited Florida when the girls were in primary school, fell in love with the sunshine state and were fortunate to have the opportunity to purchase our lovely home at Encantada in 2009 so we can share wonderful holidays with family and friends.

To us all it is like going to our other home town. An added bonus has been dealing with so many wonderful people and helping them enjoy a well earned holiday. We have also made some new friends along the way.

Stuart Boyd purchased this house in 2009

Why Stuart Boyd chose Kissimmee

We visited a number of locations before deciding to buy our holiday home in Encantada.

One of the reasons why we decided on Encantada was its location; ideally located just off H192. It is near enough to the parks to be able to return home in the afternoon when the parks are at their busiest, to relax by the lake or the pool and then return to the parks with your batteries fully re-charged later in the day for more fun and fireworks. It is also close to shops and other amenities.

Encantada is a safe, very well kept, gated Community. The grounds are lovely with a lake, a children’s play area, club house and a large shared pool. There are also several golf courses and fishing in a number of lakes nearby.

What makes this house unique

Our holiday home is a spacious three bedroom townhouse that is suitable for couples, families or groups of friends. Our home is furnished to a high standard, with free wifi.

Following your day at the parks it's nice to know that at any time the journey back to Encantada is only a few minutes. There is an array of superb restaurants to fit all budgets minutes away, or if you prefer to cook at the villa using the fully equipped kitchen, the shops are close by.

The on-site management team, manage our property for us. This is another benefit to our guests as the staff are on hand to help.

We also spend time exploring away from the crowds. The coast is easy access an hour away, with fabulous beaches, wildlife and surfing.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I'd like to say that we had a wonderful time in your house.

The house is great! And the staff of Encantada Emanagement is very kind.

They helped us promptly with everything we need.

I just want to tell you a little story that shows how nice was our vacation

in your house. One day, my seven-year-old son was talking to his

grandfather by Skype. Then, my father asked him: "When are you coming back

home?" - and my son said: "I am at home". :)

That's the way we felt there - at home.

Thank you for giving us that opportunity.

Best wishes,
Feb 2016

Clean, comfortable and great location.

  • 5 of 5

Villa is in a great location, close to Disney and lots of shops and restaurants close by. Villa is clean and comfortable with a private back courtyard with small pool for cooling off in. Owners were friendly and able to answer any questions. The resort of Encantada is very well kept and the clubhouse is lovely. Feels very safe too.

Quiet Location for Disney

  • 5 of 5

Great townhouse with plenty of room, pool pleasant to cool off after a day at the theme parks. Good quiet location for Disney. Many places to eat nearby or supermarkets if self catering. Owners were prompt to answer any questions & easy to deal with.

We thank them for sharing this property with us.

Great base, easy system, relaxing property

  • 4 of 5

We loved staying here, it was a great location for easy access to the parks. It felt like home from home. We loved having our own pool (especially as there were some issues with the resort pool when we were there). The only thing I wish I'd done was order the pool heating in advance. The instructions to do so were very clear, but we thought we'd chance it!! It was too cold for my 4yo to enjoy and we'd left it too late to make it worthwhile sorting out in our 3 day stay.

My husband said the gym was well equipped and my son enjoyed the small children's playground. The clubhouse is manned by very freindly staff, and the kids club lady was great. However, the restaurant and bar were super pricey for very basic food and drink.

All in all a great property for our holiday, lovely owners who made it very easy to book and were very easy to get hold of. Easy check-in and out procedures. In a good location, but I'd give the clubhouse restaurant a miss and check the kids pool before you get in!

On the west coast about 1 hour's drive are several beautiful beaches including Clearwater and St Petes. The Marina at Sarasota is a must for boat lovers and anyone wanting to try deep sea fishing.


The resort is 20 minutes away from Orlando International Airport and 45 minutes away from Orlando Sanford Airport. Car hire is recommended to take advantage of all Central Florida has to offer. The road network is easy to navigate and well signed. Maps are freely available and the GPS can be hired from the resort for an extra charge.
