Reviews for this vacation villa rental in Kissimmee, Florida
Reggie St Peter
Best Villa to rent in the Kissimmee Area
March 20, 2015
This was the fourth time that my wife and I have rented the Blue Horizon Villa. We had three other couples with us and they could not believe how nice and well maintained this house was. We had plenty of room for all. Dave and Sue have done a fantastic job with the remodeling of the kitchen and downstairs bathroom along with the new tile floors. Anyone planning on a vacation to Florida should book this home. We were there for two weeks and we spent most of the time enjoying the pool and hot-tub. We were all retirees and just enjoyed the home. If you plan on going to the parks, everyone of them is in the immediate area. Once again thanks Sue and Dave

We stayed 9 days in this lovely home in January and absolutely loved it. It's situated on a nice quiet street in a gated community and backs on to a lovely lake that was always the centrepiece of our bird watching. The pictures say it all and it was more beautiful in real life. Our highlights were the pool, the hot tub, the covered barbecue area, the location on the lake, the roominess of the whole house, and overall, just how much it just felt like coming "home" to peace and quiet after the chaotic days at Disney and Universal. We picked this place also because of how much privacy it offered in comparison to others in the area and we were not disappointed. We also had the added bonus of always seeing the beautiful sunrises and sunsets...not too mention a view of the moon from our nightly swims. We would definitely recommend this villa to those looking for a very comfortable home away from home while being a close driving distance to the attractions. David was very helpful and was always available for any questions. We would not hesitate to stay here again. We understand they are doing a few renovations which we will certainly want to see on a return visit. Many thanks for the use of your villa.

We could not have been more please with this property. EVERYTHING you need is there, including the wine opener. We went with friends for a friends celebration vacation, and everyone had a fantastic time. The beds are comfortable and the rooms spacious and everyone had their own en-suite. It is so close to everywhere you could want to go from the wonderful parks(Disney&Universal) to the vast shopping areas. Disney is a hop away. The home is clean and well stocked with all you need if you want to prepare a meal(We did use the panini maker). Lounging on the patio with the pool and spa, and a game room, it was marvelous. The outdoor kitchen even has a fridge. We are planning to do it again for a longer stay. We needed at least 2 weeks in this lovely home. Maintenance people are on call if needed and the owners couldn't be more helpful. You will not be sorry you booked this home.

Me and my family - husband, to children and daughters in law plus five grandchild's (2-10 years old) rent this house for 13 days and we will gladly rent it again - perfect for us, comfortable, nice, the child just love the pool (and so do we), fine and silent area around. The house is very good situated. We was visit Old Town, Kelly Park, Sea World, Magic Kingdom Disney World, Wet'n Wild, Clearwater Beach, Hockey in Tampa -Tampa Bay Lightning vs. Edmonton Oilers and some more places. We have also been shopping and visit a lots of restaurants but also make BBQ at home :)! We can definitely recommend you to rent this house. Our contact with Dave and all information before our trip have been perfect and very kindly!
great villa with in a very convenient location
November 3, 2013
A very spacious villa, easily would fit in 2 families.The location was excellent, less than 10 mins to the disney area( didn't need to travel on the I4 either) The villa is just as you see it in the photos on the website,really beautiful. I think the best part of the villa is the nearly refurbished swimming pool and spa area.
Another wonderful stay at Blue Horizon
April 16, 2013
This was our 3rd stay at this beautiful villa and it was as wonderful as we remembered. The villa really does have prime position on Sunset Lakes, which in itself is one of the prime resorts near Disney (6 mins to Animal Kingdom via Sherberth Road!) The owner, (who always replied promptly to all my emailing queries!). has maintained the villa to a high standard over the 8 years we've been visiting and there are lots of little extras that make the villa so special. We especially like the heated, powerful spa that's integral to the pool - it's lovely sitting in it of an evening with the underwater lights changing colour and a margarita in hand! Now the countdown begins until we can visit again! Thanks David & Susan.
Amanda, As always we really appreciate your feedback, and happy that our guests notice how well Blue Horizon is positioned and highly maintained. It can easily be seen that all our rental income goes back into Blue Horizon. Without keeping up our standards, and keeping you happy, we might as well not be doing it...it's certainly not with financial gains in mind. Please visit again soon, you're always welcome.

My husband, myself and our two children, ages 9 & 6, stayed in this unbelievable house. When we arrived, we were extremely happy with the home, pool, location, etc. The house is a very quiet neighborhood and in a perfect private setting. It had all the amenities we could ever have wanted. We loved the pool and jacuzzi and seeing all of the wildlife. My children loved the big birds and ducks who came by everyday to say hello. The location is perfect. Several days we went to the parks during the day, came home in the afternoon and swam, and then went to the parks in the evening. It was only around 10-15 minutes to get to all of the Disney parks and 25 minutes to Universal. We can't say enough about the hospitality and everything that the home offered. David and Susan were absolutely wonderful. I had several questions prior to our stay, and they always answered quickly and were very helpful. We never rented a private home, but this is one we definitely plan on returning to. I can't imagine staying anywhere else. Thank you for everything!!!

Beautiful is the word I like to use about this vacation home. We stayed for one week and wished we had booked for more. The home is everything you read about and more. Very quite and peaceful area. The pool and hot tub were great. Very handy to all parks and restaurants. It was a really great vacation. The owners were great to deal with and helpfull with any questions I had. "5 Stars plus"

We loved the house! I do not usually keep house rental information, but I am definitely keeping the information on this house and if I am ever in the need for this size house again, I will definitely check the availability on the Blue Horizon 1st! We loved the view from the patio onto the lake, the house was clean, and the neighborhood was nice and peaceful. The location to the parks was perfect! it was very easy to work with Dave and I thought it was nice that he called while we were there to check on things. Thank you for such a wonderful experience!
Great house to rent!!
August 11, 2008
The house was in a great location and has a beautiful setting on a lake. There were a few problems initially, but once I called the management company, they were tended to. (ie broken screen in lanai, clogged toilets) I did not hold that against the company because they acted quickly once they were notified of the problems.) The summer kitchen in the lanai is great. The outside frig kept the Coronas nice and cold! The pool and hot tub were well maintained. The kitchen could use a few items, but again, I called the owners upon our return with my suggestions and they were receptive to get what's missing. The bedrooms were spacious. The bathrooms in the master suites are quite large. The walls were recently painted throughout the house. The furniture is new and nice quality. The beds were extremely comfortable. The lawn is well manicured. The house is very spacious. Our friends that stayed with us thought a tv in each room would be nice. Overall, we loved the house and will be back!
Potential dream holiday villa
October 24, 2007
Our second visit to Blue Horizon so it must be good however second time round was slightly disappointing. The jacuzzi heater does not function properly which means the temperature does not rise above 87 degrees. We paid for the pool heat which the management had not been advised of and after they were advised the pool was still cool. I don't know if the pool and jacuzzi work off the same pump. The starter switch on the barbeque which we were looking forward to using was broken which the management were aware of but were still waiting for the part to arrive from the owner. The interior of the house is special as is reflected in the photos however I felt the cleanliness wasn't to such a high standard as previously (dirt in drawers, brown stains on the fridge). On the whole this is an amazing South facing villa in a great location, spacious and perfect for a group of two or three families.
07/16/10 Altogether as advertised, very comfortable, lovely
pool not overlooked, everything in the house worked correctly. Nice and close to major parks and shopping but extremely quiet and peaceful. House is in very good condition and well equipped. The owner was very helpful and a pleasure to deal with. Highly recommended, we will be back. GEORGE Donaldson Scotland
04/23/10 We had the best ever holiday at Blue Horizon. The villa was very clean tastefully decorated, well equipt fantastic location. The pool was lovely and clean a lovely size. We woke up to hot air balloons floating over the lake. We would say its the best at Sunset Lakes. Thanks D and S Faith and Gary, Surrey England
04/04/10 If you are looking for the perfect place to stay --The Blue Horizon is the place. Had three couples staying and we had plenty of room....If you want privacy you can also have that with five bedrooms....The pool and hot tub are a plus and well maintained. The location is great...very close to Mickey land.. All your shopping needs are very close by....This is our second time renting the Blue Horizon and will do it again.....Thank you Susan and Dave..... Reggie St.Peter, Oakland Maine
04/03/10 5 of us stayed in March 2010.We loved it! Beautifully clean and decorated! The pool/spa were superb, the beds were soooo comfy! Great location,good restaurants. Close to Disney etc. Wish we'd booked for longer-it's a fab house in a great location. Teresa Baines Stockport Cheshire
06/16/09 My family, my brother and his family and my parents (10 of us altogther) spent an amazing two weeks at the Blue Horizon Villa. We had such a fantastic time that none of us wanted to come home. The villa is fantastic.It is really big and we all absolutely loved Sunset Lakes. It is ideally situated, about 5 mins drive from Formosa Gardens - you have to try the Outback Steakhouse - and all the parks are withiin easy driving distance. All the boys in the family loved the fishing on Sunset Lakes and the wildlife was great (we saw an armadillo and an eagle). We will definitely be returning - hopefully soon. Thank you Dave and Susan for allowing us to rent your lovely holiday home. We had a fantastic holiday. Nichola Carroll, Kent, UK
FANTASTIC HOME AWAY FROM HOME

Review Submitted: August 27, 2010 Date of Stay: August 2010
My family and I have just returned from two weeks in Florida Staying at Dave & Susan's villa. I could go on and on, but the easiest thing to say is, it is exactly as it seems in the description and photo's. It is an immaculate, well maintained, beautiful home. Our family loved the fact that there were so many on-suites, and the pool area was our fav place to hang out. The villa has everything you need, just buy food and drinks and you are set. The villa owners are wonderful and we had the opportunity to meet them when we were there. The maintenance company is great, the pool and grounds are cared for perfectly. You can't go wrong with this Villa, and I am a veteran renter in the area, so I am speaking from experience. Enjoy your stay at Blue Horizon, we did! The Geddes Family!

01/04/07 Positive we stayed in this villa over the October half term break it was wonderful. Great position for the theme parks yet on a quiet estate. We particularly loved the pool and it's private situation overlooking the lake. We would definately recommend this villa!

01/06/07 Positive 7 of us spent 2 fantastic weeks at Blue Horizon in August 2006 on a family holiday. The villa exceed all of our expectations in every respect. The pool and games room were particularly popular with the children. Also the quiet cul-de-sac location was popular with my nephew who bought a new skateboard and was able to play outside safely. We all loved the lakeside location and the boys and the children loved fishing and sucessfully caught a few fish. We have recommended the villa to friends. And will definately visit the villa again in the future. Thanks for making our family holiday so special. Jeff and Karon Riddell

05/14/06 Positive april 2006 we have had a fantastic stay at Blue Horizon, you will not find a better villa. very quiet area and less than 10 minute drive to disney parks. TOP CLASS THANKS WE WILL BE BACK AGAIN.
Gary Wakeham, Plymouth, England.
02/21/06 Positive Seven of us spent an absolutely fantastic three weeks at Blue Horizon over Christmas 2005. The location of this villa is superb with sweeping views of the lake, not overlooked and with sublime sunsets on most evenings.
The villa is situated very near to all of the Disney attractions but still remote enough to allow us to get away from the crowds and recharge around the pool and spa.
The on-site villa support is efficient and friendly and I cannot commend Sue and Dave enought for the help and information given to us both during our villa selection and afterwards.
This was truly a home away from home and it was extremly difficult having to return to the UK.
The villa is excellent value for money and if you're looking for a that holiday of a lifetime base this is the home for you.
Dominic Carrington, Northamptonshire, England
12/01/05 Positive We thoroughly enjoyed our week long stay at your villa. The accommodations were great, wonderful house layout, pool, game room, etc. Plenty of rooms and bathrooms for all 11 of us! Location is excellent - near all the parks, shopping, etc., yet very private and quiet. The beds were excellent - very comfortable - I highly recommend your villa for anyone looking for a great vacation. Sincerely, Marie Jorgensen
Marie Jorgensen, Brainerd, MN
08/14/05 Positive We stayed in your villa in May this year (2005) and had wonderful time. You are so near to the parks and shops but when at the villa you are in a world of your own. Wonderful time was had by all.

03/15/05 Positive We had 9 family members staying at Blue Horizon, and everyone had plenty of space. We enjoyed the home thouroughly, and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a larger, high quality home to be home base for your vacation.
