Description of the Kissimmee vacation villa rental
In life, we quickly learn that almost everything – even the simplest of tasks – takes more than five minutes:

Warming your car up in winter. Slicing, toasting, and buttering your favorite bread. Scrolling through your digital TV guide. Brewing a pot of coffee. Heck, even a simple shampoo + conditioner takes more than 5 minutes.

You know what not-so-simple thing takes only five minutes? Driving to Disney from Villa Contenta.

You read that right: You’re just five minutes to Disney, from this five-bedroom, family-friendly villa in Indian Creek. From Villa Contenta, with its three (!) master bedrooms, its own private pool, its own bubbling hot tub, its own family game room. From Villa Contenta, where you’re so close to golf, to the playground, and to restaurants.

Villa Contenta, where you’re five minutes to Disney.

So whether it’s you and a backseat packed with excited kids, or you with a backseat of are-we-there-yet? adults (everyone’s a kid at heart, when it comes to Disney), Villa Contenta will get you from front door to the Animal Kingdom parking lot in less time than it took to make your morning coffee.

Can you imagine? You could be at Disney, in just five minutes.

There’s an unwritten rule in Florida: Where there’s sun, play outside!

Luckily, there’s lots of year-round sun at Villa Contenta, which means you can play outside any time of year.

There’s also lots of outdoor space, perfect for the whole family. Get everyone into the pool, or just send in the kids. Sunbathe. Play a game at the table. BBQ up something delicious. Relax in the hot tub. Dine al fresco. Play in the yard. There’s plenty of outdoors to enjoy.

And when the evening cools off, or the sun goes down, or you’re just ready for some time indoors, Villa Contenta has you covered: The family room is equipped with a very comfortable, very large sectional sofa (plus recliner!), a large flat-screen TV, and DVD player. Pop some popcorn, serve some drinks, and family movie night is served.

Or, swap the movie for some tabletop fun in the game room: foosball (table football), air hockey, electronic darts, and arcade basketball await!

And when everyone’s tired after an exciting day at Disney or a leisurely day at the villa, you’ll all be happy to have your own little slice of privacy and space to spread out.

We call it Villa Contenta (“content,” or “happy”) for a reason.

A private-but-not-private pool is something of a buzzkill: The pool may be all yours, but you’re so close to the neighbors, they could throw you a floaty. Whereas, a private pool? Well, that’s everything you really want. Picture this:

You’re excited. You’re sunblocked. You’re bathing suited-up. You’re ready.

You step outside. The sun is shining. The pool is sparkling. The loungers are calling your name. And there’s no one in sight.

So you can sunbathe – in privacy. You can cannonball – no worries about splashing the neighbors. You can swim laps, play Marco Polo, or let the kids splash – you’re not bothering a soul. And you can even reapply that sunblock – no one’s around to witness a wardrobe malfunction.

No, there’s nothing quite like a truly private pool.

If privacy is golden at the pool, it’s heaven in the hot tub.

No matter how sore your feet or tired your muscles – Disney means lots of walking! – and no matter how long the day, you own, private hot tub is guaranteed to make everything right.

It’s late. The kids are in bed. All is quiet. The stars are winking in a very, very black sky. In the distance, you can even hear the pop-pop-POP! of Disney fireworks.

There’s not a mosquito in buzzing-distance, since the lanai is completely screened.

You have a glass of wine (or whatever your beverage of choice) in hand. You step out onto the lanai. All is still.

Go on, dip your toe into the hot tub. Slide on in. Right up to your chin. The heat, the bubbles – it’s paradise in here.

Your own, private paradise.

Need to stay connected? No problem. Our high-speed WiFi internet covers the entire home, and even extends out over the pool deck. So go on, upload that poolside selfie.

We all know the worst part of traveling with family and friends: Divvying up the rooms. Who gets the master?

At Villa Contenta, you all do! With three master suites, there’s privacy for everyone: The first master offers a king-sized bed, attached master bath, and pool access; the second master has a queen-sized bed, an attached bath, and pool access; and the third master offers a queen-sized bed and adjacent bath.

The remaining two bedrooms are perfect for kids, too: Lightly themed, they each offer two twin beds (four twins in total), and share a Jack-and-Jill bathroom.

All of Villa Contenta’s bedrooms have top-quality mattresses, comfortable bedding, and flat-screen televisions.

We believe that a home-away-from home isn’t complete without a fully equipped kitchen.

Bear with us. We’re not expecting you to cook a five-course meal, or even a one-course lunch – well, not unless you want to.

We do expect you to be you. Whether you start your day with coffee or end it with a cold beer, whether your kids breakfast on scrambled eggs or just need a bowl for their cereal, whether you want to order in a meal or just refrigerate a restaurant doggy bag – a kitchen is a must.

So, we’ve covered the musts – and then some! At Villa Contenta, you’ll have all the necessities, from the fridge down to the oven, as well as all the other kitchen accouterments: a toaster and microwave, pots and pans, utensils and gadgets, and plenty of place settings.

Of course, we all have enough seating for your entire group: a formal dining table (seats 6), a breakfast nook (seats 4), a breakfast bar (seats 4), and the al fresco, poolside table (seats 4).

Who’s ready for family game night?

Lazy mornings, relaxing afternoons, and late nights get an awesome upgrade at Villa Contenta’s garage-converted game room: electronic darts, air hockey, foosball (table football), and arcade basketball. There’s even a TV area, for family members who prefer watching over playing.

Parents know: Packing for a vacation with kids, especially little kids, is the worst. The absolute worst. There’s no way you can fit all the required baby gear in your suitcases, but of course, you need your littlest family members to be safe and happy while traveling.

We care about your children (and your sanity), so we’ve stocked all our villas with high chairs, strollers, pack-and-plays, and other baby gear. Whatever you need, let us know. We have lots of baby and toddler accoutrements on hand, so we’ll be happy to accommodate.

Customer service is the cornerstone of our business, and we know it all begins the moment you first email us. We’re always at the ready, so we respond generally within the hour and sometimes within minutes. That’s 24 hours a day, every day of the year. We’ll never leave you hanging.

Of course, it’s not just about how quickly we respond, but about the quality of our responses. This is the part where we tell you how much we love the Disney area, and how excited we are to share it with you. And did we mention? We’ve been on both sides of the fence – more than 15 years ago, we first came here as renters – so we know what matters to you.

Want some great restaurant recommendations? We’ve got ‘em.
Need discount park tickets? We know how to snag them.
Searching for the cheapest car rentals? Not a problem.
Seeking the best microbrews in Florida? We’ll point the way.
Looking for Segway rentals? We know where.

When you rent with us, you’re treated to very personal (and very free!) vacation planning and concierge service. Everything you need, plus all that you could want. So go on, mine our knowledge for all it’s worth. That’s what we’re here for.

We may pride ourselves on personalized service, but part of our quality promise is actually just the opposite: We’ve taken the personal out of check-in. Forget having to meet us at the office, on our terms, during our business hours.

We’re happy to say, we’ve gone digital – at least, as far as check-in is concerned. All of our rentals have keyless entry, so there are no lockboxes, no keys to collect, and no stressful meet-ups. (We all know how fun those are, especially when you throw in elements like a delayed flight.)

When you book with us, we’ll send you a digital welcome guide, packed with helpful information about your rental and the surrounding area. And of course, we’ll let you know how to check-in.

We take great pride and joy in our vacation homes. That’s why personally inspect our rentals at least twice a year, to be sure that everything adheres to our high standards. What’s more, every year, we improve and upgrade our villas.

To us, “good enough” is never good enough; we want our vacation rentals to exceed your expectations.

Have you ever lived a Vacation Rental Nightmare? It’s 9 p.m. and the toilet’s overflowing. Or you’re fresh out of clean clothes and the washing machine breaks down mid-cycle. Or perhaps you’re locked out, or you can’t find the wine opener, or you just need a late-night restaurant recommendation.

You call, and you call, and you call. But the property manager doesn’t pick up. Or, she does but she’s based across the country and has no local, emergency contacts to help you tonight. You’ll have to wait until tomorrow; they’ll be there sometime between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m.

Suddenly, your vacation has morphed into something very different than the relaxing escape you had hoped it would be.

We know that the details – the big AND little details – can make or break your vacation. That’s why we’re committed to you, to your experience. We’re local – in just a few minutes, we can be at your front door – and we’re available 24/7, every day of the year, via phone, text or email. What’s more, we have the local professional contacts to handle any emergency, no matter the hour. We’ll get that toilet fixed, tonight.

Oh, and as we mentioned, we’ve been in the Disney area for 15 years, so we’re also good for those restaurant recommendations. Ask us where to find the best cheesy chips.)

We are fully licensed at both the county and state levels. First and foremost, that means we follow the rules and prioritize your safety: We’ve installed fire extinguishers, smoke alarms, and emergency lighting in all the right places. We maintain tight safety measures at our pools. And all our homes are subject to periodic inspection, by the county and state, so you know that we’re still up-to-date on those safety requirements.

Our vacation rentals are legal and above-board. We pay our taxes. You can check our existence in the public records. (Feel free to ask how. We’re happy to share.)

It all boils down to this: You, your family, and your friends are safe with us. Your booking is secure. Your vacation rental is guaranteed.

The only thing standing between you and your dream vacation, is the Book button. Click away!
Area Information
Almost anywhere in the world, “a few miles” makes you think of spending a few minutes in the car, listening to music or watching the scenery roll by.

At Disney, “a few miles” can mean anything from a hop-skip-and-a-jump to 30+ minutes sitting in traffic. So close, and yet so far.

Not to mention, there may be a constant chorus of very excited backseat voices, harmonizing “are we there yet?!” Over and over and over. Or, depending on how many miles comprise your “few miles,” backseat squabbles and meltdowns and… well, we parents all know how it goes.

And that’s why we’re happy to say, at Villa Contenta you’re really, truly close to Disney. Three miles close, to be precise. (See drive-time bullet points, below.)

What’s more, Villa Contenta is close to all the other stuff, too: To shopping and big-name chain restaurants (just around the corner), to a Super Target and Publix (5 minutes), to everything else you need. You’re also a short drive to several excellent restaurants, from familiar favorites to best-kept Kissimmee secrets. (Ask about our favorites!)

We’re adamant about ethics and honest rental descriptions, so we’ll never embellish how close our villas are to the destinations that matter to you. So, let’s cut to the chase: Villa Contenta is located about 3 miles to Disney. In are-we-there-yet?!? terms, this means:

Magic Kingdom: 15 minutes
Animal Kingdom: 5 minutes
Hollywood Studios and Epcot: 10 minutes
SeaWorld and Universal Studios: 20 minutes
LEGOLAND: 30 minutes
Busch Gardens and the Kennedy Space Center: About 75 minutes
Attractions within Walking Distance
If you have little ones in your group, you’ll love having a playground at just a two-minute walk.

And not just any playground; we’re talking full kiddo entertainment, with a slide, swings, monkey bars, and even a soccer field. And if that’s not enough, there’s a putting green, basketball courts, and tennis court inside the subdivision, perfect for both kids and kids-at-heart

Indian Creek and Osceola County are a golfer’s wonderland, and Villa Contenta sits smack in the center of some of the best golfing in the area.

Within easy distance (2 minutes by car): Mystic Dunes Golf Club and its 18-hole, dunes-style western nine, similar to a British links course, and an eastern nine of low American classic wandering through wetlands and oak forests. This course was rated 4 stars, and ranked number 2 in “Orlando's Top 5 Golf Courses.”

If Mystic Dunes doesn’t scratch the itch, then hop in the car for the 10-minute drive to the Champions Gate International and National 18-hole courses, both of which were designed by Greg Norman. The International provides a British links-style experience, while the national is traditional American style. The David Leadbetter Golf Academy is just adjacent to these courses.

Finally, a 15-minute drive delivers you to the Celebration Golf Club, rated 4.5 stars, in the top 3 in central Florida for service, and in the top two for course conditions in Golf Digest’s “Best Places to Play.”

Wonderful place to stay!

January 22, 2017

We had a wonderful vacation at Villa Contenta. The villa was spacious, and provided plenty of private space on the pool deck which is not overlooked. It was great to have the hot tub to relax in after a long day at the theme parks. The villa is only a few minutes from Disney and is exactly as described. We will be rebooking for another vacation later this year!

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Can I order pool heating while I am at the villa ?
A: As we switch the pool heating on and off over the internet you can order pool heating at any time. This can be paid for as a separate item or we can deduct the cost from your security deposit.
We now offer a "pool heat" deposit facility. This may be more economic if you will not be using the pool every day. You simply pay a deposit to us and you e mail us the dates you wish the pool heat to be on. 24 hours notice or more is all we require to enable us to switch the pool heating on for you. Ask us for more information if this is of interest.
Q: Why does a BBQ grill have to be used outside the pool cage.?
A: Not only is there a risk of damaging the pool deck but there is a potential fire risk if the grill is used to close to the house.
Q: Why do we need to rent a BBQ grill if we need one and what are the options?
A: We know that some rental home owners have a BBQ grill at the home as a part of the deal. However the condition of the BBQ grill and how clean (or not) it is will largely depend on those who have used it before you!
And of course some will have no use of it anyway.
If you wish to order a gas BBQ grill, we can arrange this for you and the cost is from $55 per week plus tax.
We can offer you two options :

1. A standard 2 burner gas BBQ Grill with a 20 lb full liquid propane tank. Price is $55 per week plus tax, or
2. A larger and more powerful 3 burner gas BBQ Grill with a 20 lb full liquid propane tank included. Price is $75 per week plus tax.

The Grill will be delivered on the day of your arrival and left outside the pool cage normally to the left hand side. It is collected from the same place on the day of your departure.
Please order a BBQ grill if you require one at the earliest opportunity. If the order is less than 24 hours before it is required then there is a delivery charge of $30 plus tax.
Q: What if we arrive at the house earlier than expected?
A: The code you are given for the electronic front door lock will only work from the normal check in time of 4 p.m or any earlier time we have agreed with you.
If you arrive earlier the code will not work. If you need earlier check in please ask and we will help if we possibly can.
Q: What if we leave the house after check out time?
A: The code you are given for the electronic front door lock will only work until the normal check out time of 10 a.m or any later time we have agreed with you.
If you leave after that time and need to get back into the house because you have left something behind then the code will not work.
If this happens then please call Florida Gold.
If you intend to leave after your check out time you must agree this with us so we can give you a new code for the front door lock. Whether this is possible or not will depend on whether there are new guests arriving on the same day as the house will need to be cleaned and prepared for the next arrivals.
