Reviews for this vacation home rental in Kissimmee, Florida

We really enjoyed our stay at this home. It is really well equipped with anything that you would need at a home away from home. There are bikes, baby strollers, cribs, towels, cutlery, baking and cooking wear, coffee maker, toaster, lots of cleaning equipment , (if you care to clean when you are on holidays) The beds are comfortable and the home is clean and when we got there the fridge was stocked with anything that you would need for your first day there. THe games room is amazing although our kids were a little young for it this time. The pool was heated to a lovely temperature so that you could just walk in and it has a solar blanket that is easy to put on and take off. We love the location, it is always quiet at night and we feel safe there. It is close to anything that you might want to do also. We hope to go back again next year!
We stayed here over Thanksgiving 2015; 3 generations aged between 4 and 68; we couldn't have asked for a better villa. The owners are easy to deal with, the villa is excellently fitted out, with plenty of kitchen stuff, towels and linens. Location is perfect; just a couple of miles to the gates of the Disney resorts, admittedly using a (decent) dirt road to avoid the traffic. We recommend this villa for value, amenities and location.

We have just returned from our amazing 16 night stay in Simbas Pride, we found the Villa to have the wow factor there was so much space and the villa was well equiped with everything you could ever need during your stay. All of the bedrooms are luxurious and the beds extremely comfy. A lovely touch was the welcome pack when we arrived.
The location of the Villa is fabulous and only a short ride to the Disney Parks with lots of restaurants locally and its true my children did manage to watch the Disney Fireworks from the bedroom window !!!
From our initial enquiry we found the owners extremely helpful and responded to all of our emails immediately and just before we left the UK a detailed email prepared by the owners was sent full of great tips and hints.
I would highly recommend this Villa and all I can say is we had an amazing holiday and we were so sad to close the door on Simbas Pride - but you never know hopefully we may return! Boardman family Manchester
We have always stayed in luxury hotels/apartments wherever we have stayed on vacation so were over the moon when we discovered this gem for our first ever Villa holiday. What you see in the pictures is exactly what you get, its like a real show home but with the added bonus of feeling homely. Everything you could want as previous visitors have mentioned is at your fingertips. Literally a few minutes drive off the 192, close to the sherbeth road shortcut to all the disney parks and of course all the eating/shopping places of the 192. Loved the layout upstairs, a twin, a separate bathroom, and a large ensuite bedroom to the left, with the other two twins, separate bathroom and another large ensuite to the right, not forgetting the master en-suite downstairs, ideal for spreading out 3 generations of family! Just be warned, you won't want to leave!!! The owners really do want you to enjoy your vacation in their villa. Thanks Barry and Debbie :)
Just having recently returned from an absolutely, fantastic 3wk holiday in Florida, I thought I would post this review of our stay in the wonderful DIBB villa - Simba's Pride on Emerald Island Resort. A bit background first of all... We first started visiting Florida in 1992 and like many others we fell in love with the place and have since kept returning. Having tried both villas and hotels or sometimes a combination of both, it seems for us villas are the better option, we like the space and freedom to do our own thing. Over the years we have "fine-tuned" our selection process when it comes to villas and being the "over-fussy" type that I am, there is always some trepidation when choosing a new one. During recent visits before our latest one, unfortunately we had become a bit disenchanted with our "regular villa" it was starting to look a bit tired, and it was clear that the owner didn't seem as interested in keeping the villa fresh and relevant any longer and so the search for a new villa began...
After many hours spent trawling through villa details, Simba's Pride was looking like a clear favourite, it ticked every box on my wish list and more. After contacting Barry we were booked for a 3wk stay in July 12. Throughout the booking process and right up until we were there, Barry promptly and efficiently answered all my questions. The information he provided was helpful and thorough. Simba's Pride is in the exclusive, gated community of Emerald Island Resort. On arrival at the resort, I was immediately captivated.At the entrance of this beautifully landscaped development you are greeted with dolphin statues and fountains. As per Barry's instructions we checked in at the clubhouse where we were issued with our car pass. The friendly lady on reception gave us information on the resort facilities and invited us to have a look around. There was a communal pool with pool bar, a gym, large screen tv room, games arcade. I'm sure there was more, but to be honest we just wanted to head straight for the villa. We were soon standing at the doorway of Simba's Pride and even at this point we were sure the villa was going to be lovely . Sure enough on opening...wow, what a sight unfolded. This is one classy home. Your eyes immediately take in the superior furnishings and décor. The villa was immaculately clean and the stylish surroundings really impress , believe me , we have stayed in several villas over the years but Simba's Pride 100% surpasses them all. It isn't necessary for me to go into each and every area in detail, as Barry's photos and descriptions will do that for you, I more would like to get across just how special this villa is. It is clear that the owners have thought very carefully about what a holidaymaker might need and so they have provided it and more. I cannot tell you how many kitchen gadgets there are in this villa ,certainly more than I could ever use in a 3 wk stay. Another thing that was fantastic was the hair straighteners! (yes major detail Iknow! ) but when you have teenage girls well anyway they were better than us using our GHD ones... brilliant. The cool box in the kitchen (filled every day with the ice packs and cool drinks) and taken in the back of the car so that when we left the parks we had refreshments waiting for us. There was so much on offer in the way of entertainment in this villa that honestly a 3 wk stay wasn?t long enough to have the benefit of it all, such as the games room, tv/dvds in every room, dvds, books, the Wi, the Playstation, the laptop, free internet access. The large, extended pool area is tremendous with a covered lanai if the sun gets a bit too much or indeed if there are afternoon rain showers but you still want to stay outside. There is ample, comfortable pool furniture and we loved to end our long, hot days in the bubbling jaccuzzi or swimming in the pool with it's lovely light - changing system.
Another thing I must acknowledge is the Management Company ,Paul was a treat, I called him (must stress not that anything at all was wrong , more for information really) and he was so helpful and kind. It is clear his company adds to the smooth, efficient running of this villa ... he even popped in on our last day to say goodbye and that he would love us to come back to Simba's Pride. It's the little things like this that help set Simba's Pride head and shoulders above the rest . There is a welcome pack waiting for you on arrival ( a godsend really as it means you don't have to rush out to do that 'initial' shop for essentials - thanks for that, we all had a lovely breakfast courtesy of you.
My daughters loved their bedrooms in Simba's Pride(check out the pirate themed one) and immediately settled in like home from home. We were all so comfortable here in fact and I can honestly say that apart from our adorable pet, there was abosolutely nothing I missed from home while staying here. If you are looking for something a bit extra special, with superior furnishings and facilities that is immaculately maintained then look no further than Simba's Pride. I was reluctant in posting this in you know that way if you find something great then you want to keep it all to yourself but also the villa was so special that I wanted to share my thoughts about it. We have been home 2 wks now and I want to go back - I hope we can ... we love Simba's Pride and felt at home there. Barry and Debbie your home is beautiful and I long to return. Thank You for a memorable stay.

This was our first Villa holiday, we are a family used to 5* hotels and were a bit worried as to what quality we could expect in a villa? We chose Simba's Pride because it looked immaculately maintained, lovely resort area and ideal for our family of 6 who like their own space on those rest days! Loved the layout of the Villa. What you see is what you got, its like a show home but with that homely feeling. The owners were great communicators, the management company are doing a fantastic job in maintaining this property to the high standard the owners obviously expect for their guests. The back route into disney was 5minutes, as were plenty of eating places and supermarkets conveniently located down the road on the 192. Perfect base for your Florida holiday. I think the previous reviewer Felixo has covered all the little extras that you will find in this truly lovely Villa. Look forward to another stay in the near future. Highly recommended!

"I just wanted to let you know that we had a WONDERFUL time on our vacation last week. Your home is one of the most beautiful any of us have stayed in. It has all the comforts of home plus, plus, plus! The location is amazing - just minutes to all the attractions and it was so nice to come home every evening after a long day of walking and be able to relax in luxury and have so much space for us to spread out and enjoy. My compliments to your decorator, everything looked so nice. My daughters even loved the toys you have there -- they never even used the ones we brought from home. I just wanted to say thank you for making our vacation one of THE BEST our family (and my sisters too) have ever taken! I look forward to coming back again in the next year or two! Best wishes to you and your family for a very Happy Thanksgiving and Holiday Season! I hope you get to head to the Villa for some R&R soon! Take Care ".
"You're house was MAGNIFICENT!!!! We absolutely loved it! Everything was perfect!!!!! What a great place! I think I have rented it for you next Christmas for two weeks bc we talked it up so much our neighbors are going to rent it for the holidays. :) Also, some other friends might rent it in May. We will rent it again soon. Too fun! ".
"We had a wonderful week in Disney at your beautiful home. My whole family was so impressed with the decor and all the amenities your home offered. ".

My family and I just returned from a wonderful vacation in Orlando at your house.
It was perfect in every way! In fact, on the airline returning to Seattle, all of us in the group (8 in all) remarked that we would not have changed a thing. The facility was absolutely the best stocked (with crib, bikes, games, pool etc) we have seen in our experience. Your company does a great job maintaining it as well! We know how much can happen to a rented house in the owner's absence.
Thank you again for the help. We look forward to be fortunate enough to rent your house again in the future! Maybe on a yearly basis.
We had a wonderful time staying at your villa, it was beautiful and very well equipped!
Barry, we love the home, the location, everything was perfect!!! For sure we
will be back!!!! and if one day you visit our country let us know, we live in the south of Brazil ......
