Description of the Kissimmee vacation villa rental
Kissimmee, Orlando, Florida4 bedrooms 3 bathrooms


* MAXIMUM OCCUPANCY 8 plus infant to sleep in cot/crib*




Our home has been specifically designed with all the comforts of a traditional home and equipped with many extras to ensure your stay in Florida is beyond your wildest dreams!

Location is everything and we think the location of our villa is just about perfect!
The Villa which has its own heated screened Pool is situated in the Buenaventura Lakes area of Kissimmee, this is an already established residential community, so noise or dust from construction or building work - only 17 minutes from Orlando International airport and 15 minutes from Disney and other major attractions, makes it an ideal place to stay.

The Villa is privately owned and maintained to a very high standard, it benefits from being only 4 minutes away from Ventura Downs shopping mall where there is a Bank, grocery/supermarket store, Dollar store (in which virtually everything is a dollar), fast food outlets, pizza places and lots more, a 24 hour Wal*mart superstore is just 5 minutes drive. Situated just a couple of turnings from the extended Osceola Parkway which for people who (like me) have no sense of direction is great as it leads straight to Disney 's front door, the 417 Greenway, Florida Turnpike, Orange Blossom Trail and the 192 are all close by.

The Villa is an ideal family home. In fact, what could be better than after a hard day at the parks or retail therapy to come back to your own air conditioned retreat, put your feet up for an hour, have a cup of tea/coffee or a swim, before returning for an evening at Walt Disney World, or any other of the Orlando attractions, or perhaps dine out at one of the many restaurants in the area, the choice is endless!

The pool (which can be heated) is south facing and screened for your comfort. From the moment you wake until the end of the day the sun shines on this idyllic spot, the pool overlooks a conservation area (woods) there is large CARPETED lanai/patio area - it is furnished with sun loungers plus patio furniture for dining 'al fresco'
Why not step into the hot tub - sit back - relax - let the bubbles work their magic!!

The pool and patio area are indeed very private NOT being overlooked by neighbours on either side, something that is becoming increasingly RARE these days in Florida.

The 2 family rooms and separate dining room
The first of the family/lounge rooms has 2 large luxuriously comftable leather sofas to sit and relax, watch TV or a DVD, the 2nd family/lounge room overlooks the pool and has 2 large comfy sofas, with a CD music system and a large selection of music (some you may even like!) There is a separate more formal dining room (dress optional!).

If you are not dining out - then the fully equipped kitchen has everything you need to whip up that culinary delight, even down to an apron and rolling pin! ceramic/glass top cooker with overhead microwave, waste disposal/fridge-freezer/electric kettle/coffee-maker/crock-pot/toaster etc. with an abundance of pots and pans/cutlery/glasses/crockery/cooking utensils etc and of course plastic plastic/glasses for outside around the pool.
There is a large table and chairs for breakfast or less formal dining.

The Master bedroom (en-suite)
Rekindle the romance in the huge 4 poster bed! plenty of drawer space, dressing table and a large closet (for all those clothes you are sure to buy!), flat-screen wall mounted TV and a clock radio. Large patio doors lead directly to the pool area.
The en-suite bathroom has a double size walk-in shower, his and hers wash basins, W.C. and a large closet for towels and linen.

The second bedroom
This has a queen-size bed (5'); flat-screen TV,clock radio, with plenty of drawers, walk-in closet.

The third and fourth bedrooms
These are a generous size and each have twin beds, large built-in style closets and plenty drawer space.

All bedrooms have their own individuality - and 1 has been especially themed with our younger guests in mind

Family bathroom
Located between the 3rd and 4th bedrooms, the 2nd bathroom has a bathtub with overhead shower, washbasin and WC. There is a large cupboard in which all towels are stored just nearby.

The third bathroom serves the patio and pool area.

Other information

24 hour monitored security system, smoke detectors and emergency lighting, giving peace of mind while you are out that your belongs are being protected.

Free local and long distance calls to USA/Canada.

There are plenty of toys, games, board games, puzzles, books and cuddly toys for both children and adults, enough to keep everyone occupied.

1/3 (one third) of the garage has been utilised as a games room - equipped with air hockey, foosball and electronic darts - plenty of amusement for both young and old !! there is still room to park one car.

There is no maid service, you are responsible for keeping the Villa clean and left tidy when your holiday/vacation is over. A mid-stay clean can be arranged - this must be paid for locally.

For golfers - there are many courses within 15/30 minutes drive.

World famous beaches Daytona and Cocoa are just an hours drive - and deep sea fishing from Port Canaveral.

We have deliberately omitted having any sleep sofas or rollaway beds, as we want you to enjoy the villa as it was designed, we also limit the number of weeks per year the villa is rented out ? allowing us time to refurbish and keep the villa in pristine condition.

Maximum occupancy 8 plus infant.

Wonderful House!

November 30, 2009

We stayed at the Mingo Mansion over Thanksgiving 2009 and had a wonderful time. My wife fell in love with the kitchen, the grandchildren loved the pool and the rest of the adults loved the jacuzzi after a long day in the parks. About 20 minutes to Disney area or Universal, and away from the 192 and I-Drive hassles. Supermarket, drugstore, Walmart and plenty of restaurants nearby but in a quiet neighborhood. We don't usually travel with so many family members, but if we do again we know where to stay! Thanks to Diane & Jim for letting us stay in their home, and their management company for keeping everything in good shape.

The house was fantastic. The only thing I would have changed was the weather. IT WAS BURINING HOT!! However, our stay was great. The owners provided everything you might possibly need.
