About Ian and Carole

Hi, My name is Ian and I live in Yorkshire, England, with my wife Carole.

We both work, but enjoy our holidays and love to travel to the sunshine.

Ian and Carole purchased this house in 2009

Why Ian and Carole chose Kissimmee

We enjoyed a fabulous honeymoon in Florida and realised that we would love to have a base there.

Having viewed a number of properties we decided to look at new build.

We chose Compass Bay mainly because of its fantastic location, being close to just about everything you could wish for (theme parks, restaurants, shops, supermarkets) but also for the quality of the property construction.

The community is gated for security and has routine patrols by the local Sherriff which makes us feel very safe and secure whenever we stay.

The pool is first class and not usually too busy, so you can always enjoy some time to relax.

What makes this house unique

Our property is tastefully furnished and is our true home from home. It is a perfect place from which to visit the many Florida attractions, but also ideal if you are looking for a quieter, relaxing holiday. The delightful Celebration village, where we spend lots of time, is just 10 mins drive away where you can sit by the lake and enjoy traditional American hospitality. You might even get to see an alligator or two !

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Ian and Carole

Just to let you know we had a great time at your Townhouse and this went a long way in making our trip to Florida a success.

A perfect location for all the parks and it met all our needs.

Thanks again and If we decide to go back to Florida I would have no hesitation in booking with you again and I will be recommending your townhouse to friends and family

Muchos Gracias

Loved the house & setting

  • 4 of 5

It was a lovely house 🏡. The only flaw was little worms 🐛 in the house...many. Go out come in & find them. Get up in the morning go downstairs & there they were. Besides that all well & dandy. Close to shops, eateries & routes to get anywhere.

Owner's Response: Thank you Madeleine. This has been raised with housekeeping to ensure that monthly routine pest control treatments inside the property are maintained.

This is a lovely home from home villa. We had everything we needed and the location along the 192 highway was excellent and excatly where we wanted to be, so that we were close to everything. The villa was clean and modern and I would highly recommend anyone to come here. Thanks Ian and Carole for allowing us to rent your lovely home for 2 weeks. Ian and Carole of you could thank the Murphy's, who stayed before us, for leaving a few treats it would be great as it was appreciated. Until next time - big thanks

Great value!

  • 4 of 5

Overall a really great stay here. Had issues with the wifi that were quickly resolved with assistance from the property management company. Very conveniently located for a wedding we were in town for in Orlando. Clean and updated overall look. The price truly cannot be beat either!

No ice in ice maker on the freezer so it was one more thing we had to go out and get from the store. Maybe provide a larger waste bin in the kitchen with trash bags as the small one was a bit challenging to keep tidy. Thermostat would have been perfect 2 degrees cooler. Would strongly suggest the master bath floor/living ceiling is fixed.

Would have also preferred a larger private patio area - but this is not the property owners fault!

Thanks, Ian and Carole!

Owner's Response: We are really pleased you enjoyed your stay., and thank you for your comments as guest reviews are very important to us. We will consider your thoughts on the kitchen waste bin and we are aware of the mark on the lounge ceiling from the master bath. This was the result of a leak which has been fixed and we need to get the ceiling painted. The thermostat is set at a level determined with our property managers to ensure optimum efficiency of the AC unit. It has been set cooler previously but causes issues with the smooth running of the condenser unit. yours sincerely Ian and Carole

Great place to stay

  • 4 of 5

This was our fourth winter in the Kissimmee area. Previously, we rented townhouses in a resort close by. We rented this house for two months. It was well furnished, very clean, and close to everything we needed. The rooms are a good size, the kitchen is large and well stocked. Living room (lounge) and dining area are bright. In short, a home away from home. We had one major issue while we were there - the washing machine died and had to be replaced. The property manager and owners were excellent. The time from when I reported the problem and a new machine was installed was four days - and that included the weekend! WalMart is a 10 minute walk away. Publix (grocery shopping) is a few minutes by car. Compass Bay is close to major highways and theme parks. The townhouse is at the end of a row and benefits from windows on the side. The one drawback for me is that it is close to Poinciana Blvd which has become quite busy & therefore noisy. However, that is a minor issue as we were generally not home during the day. At night, it was not a problem. I would definitely recommend this for anyone who is looking for a well-maintained, clean, well-priced alternative to a hotel. Thank you for a lovely stay.
