About Karen Harris

Peter and Karen live in England. Peter is a cruise ship captain whose cruises take him around the world. Karen is a ballet teacher and Examiner. We have three children, our youngest is at university, the other two have now graduated. Our family have travelled the world on Peter's ships and love the Orlando area with it's theme parks and sunshine. We bought the villa to live in ourselves for part of the winter and visit in the summer with the family. It is truly our second home and is furnished to the same high standards and tastes as our primary home.

Karen Harris purchased this villa in 2010

Why Karen Harris chose Kissimmee

We bought in Cumbrian Lakes as it is a tranquil gated community. Despite being close to all the major Orlando attractions it is surrounded by lakes and a conservation area. This means it provides restful days amid the excitement of Orlando. The community is made up of low density spacious villas and is quiet and relaxing with wildlife that can be spotted in the area. It is a great place to cycle or walk around and there is a children's play area about 5 mins walk from the villa. Shops and supermarkets are a 5 min drive away.

What makes this villa unique

Our spacious four bed villa has two identical master suites, the upstairs with its own balcony, the downstairs opening onto the pool area. The pool is south facing so gets sunshine all day long. It backs onto a wooded conservation area with a lake not far away. The large lanai provides shade when required and is a great place to dine alfresco. There is also a pool toilet and outside shower, which saves going in and out of the house. We have four large screen TVs, a Nintendo Wii and an X box; both with games, also table top football, table tennis, bikes, skateboard, fishing rods etc. Other thoughtful touches include, Garmin sat nav, two safes, free US phone calls, free fast 90mps WiFi and printer. It is our home and is furnished as such.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have been vacationing in Orlando for many years and this is by far the most beautiful villa with every possible luxury, to make it the perfect holiday experience. It is the most gorgeous spacious home, beautifully decorated throughout with two huge master suites with luxury bathrooms (upstairs has a balcony whilst the other opens onto the beautiful pool area) as well as two additional twin bedrooms and lovely spacious living / kitchen areas and a great sky deck (complete with Xbox). The games room downstairs is fabulous too. This villa is excellently situated within a private gated very quiet community with beautiful lake walks and backing onto woodland. It is only a short drive to the parks and has many restaurants, supermarkets and some great crazy golf all close by. If you are looking for peace, tranquillity and luxury as well as easy access to all the parks and shopping malls / outlets, this is definitely the place to make it the perfect holiday.

Bright welcoming property.

  • 5 of 5

The Villa was of an exceptional standard, clean bright and beautifully maintained.

We were a family of 7, three couples and one child. The house was easily able to cope with our number and also able to give us private space as individual couples.

The facilities were exceptional from the fully equiped laundry to the heated pool and jaccuzi.

The two large bedrooms had huge beds and his and hers split bathrooms.

The two double bed rooms had a joint bathroom and were ideal for our family of three. Bathrooms were complete with fluffy towels and dressing gowns.

The social areas were spacious luxurious and very well equiped from the kitchen/breakfast room with its large american fridge, pristine cooker and waste disposal and the lovely high ceiling lounge with its leather suite and entertainment centre. We were able to play table tennis and pool in the large well lit garage and walk within the estate around the green public area.

Whilst relaxing on the patio one day two large grey heron like birds walked stately past the mesh security netting, what a delight.

The property is within easy travel of all local ameneties such as Disney off International Drive, Kissemmee and Orlando and yet in an exclusive private setting.

I would recommend this property most highly and we would have no hesitation going back.

Absolutely Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

We have been travelling to Florida for the last 25 years and have stayed in many Villa's over the years, we stayed here in 2012 and every time we have traveled since then we have tried to book this Villa, we were lucky this year and managed to get booked. We love this Villa for many reasons, it is safe, secure and very peaceful with with wonderful walks, I think we have seen all the wildlife that Florida has to offer. Karen and Peter Make you feel that their home is your home, when we walked in, it's just the little things that make you feel welcome, like the Xmas tree with the lights on and the Xmas decorations, it is luxurious it has everything a family needs from the inviting warm pool and spa to the best cable TV you can have, it has enough kitchen utensils and crockery you will ever need, and a games room to keep you all entertained, unlike other Villa's this Villa is very well maintained the Villa is extremely clean and the pool is serviced weekly. Our children (all grown up now) drive to the parks in 20 minutes, it's less than 5 minutes drive to a super Wall mart and 5 minutes drive to a Super Target and numerous restaurants within a 5 Minute drive. We can not recommend this Villa enough, We will return.

Our family of 4 had an amazing stay at Wekika villa. The house and pool were immaculate, spacious and very well maintained. Peter and Karen provided everything that you'd need for an enjoyable relaxing stay. There were plenty of bath and pool towels available and even inflatables for the lovely pool. The girls both loved that they could play their iPods in their rooms while they were getting ready!

The management company were top notch. During our stay one of the batteries in the smoke alarms kept beeping, we were leaving early for the day so we thought we'd leave them a message but they answered the phone at 7.15 am , ( they weren't supposed to start work until 8am ) and the issue was was dealt with by time we'd arrived back a few hours later.

We had the most wonderful relaxing stay and we can't wait to visit again. Thank you Karen and Peter for allowing us to stay at your beautiful home and thank you for the excellent communication before and after our visit.

Wekiva Villa holiday review

  • 4 of 5

We found Wekiva Villa just as described by the owners Karen & Peter. Great location, approximately 20 minutes from the Universal & Disney Parks. The villa was on a lovely and safe gated community, close to a number of supermarkets and 5 minutes to the 192 and the many diners & restaurants. The villa was clean, very well equipped, spacious and very well maintained. We particularly liked that the villa was not overlooked, with the pool area backing onto the conservation area. We had a small issue with one of the safes (which was our fault), but following one telephone call to Alan at the property management company, this was resolved very quickly.

We would recommend this villa as an excellent choice for a holiday to Florida, we have visited Florida five times and this was without doubt the best villa.

Finally, the owner Peter was very helpful both prior and following our holiday, always quick to reply to our questions. We will certainly be returning!
