Description from owner

A WARM & INVITING WELCOME awaits you at my idyllic LAKESIDE family home ... THE PRESIDENTIAL LODGE. As the name suggests, I have spared no expense in creating a luxurious yet comfortable home where you can enjoy a truly memorable vacation!

My home is located just off US192 offering one of the fastest routes to DISNEY (approx. 9 miles) or other major attractions in Florida!

My IMMACULATELY presented two story home is PROFESSIONALLY MAINTAINED and offers our guests almost 3500 square feet of accommodation with 3 SEPARATE LIVING ROOMS, including a fabulous upstairs LOFT/DEN with sectional recliner sofa, cable TV/DVD & PLAYSTATION.

The SUMPTUOUS GROUND FLOOR MASTER SUITE has an amazing CALIFORNIA KING PILLOW-TOP BED and a LAVISHLY UPGRADED EN-SUITE bathroom with TRAVERTINE TILE, step-in SHOWER (big enough for two!!), TWIN VANITIES and brushed pewter fittings - WOW!

UPSTAIRS you'll find a SECOND KING SIZE BEDROOM and QUEEN SIZE BEDROOM - both exquisitely decorated! Our PATRIOTIC AMERICANA themed bedroom offers TWIN BEDS and our younger guests are sure to love spending their vacation with MICKEY, MINNIE and some of their friends in our fabulous DISNEY THEMED bedroom, also with TWIN BEDS.

ALL bedrooms have plenty of storage with LARGE CLOSETS, nightstands and dressers - also Cable TV/DVD and CEILING FANS. The MASTER SUITE has large WALK-IN closet and a WALL SAFE.

There are THREE FULL BATHROOMS PLUS a GUEST HALF BATHROOM.

FREE BROADBAND INTERNET ACCESS with WiFi available from anywhere in the house. This stunning home is FULLY AIR CONDITIONED/HEATED for your comfort with the added bonus of CEILING FANS in all bedrooms, the upstairs LOFT/DEN and FAMILY ROOM.

Chill out in our 1950s THEMED GAMES ROOM which is also air-conditioned (many are not!!) and features a professional, 8ft POOL TABLE with slate bed, 7ft AIR HOCKEY TABLE.

A large capacity WASHER AND DRYER are provided along with fresh, clean bed linens and lots of fluffy, cotton towels of all sizes - including over-sized BATH SHEETS and poolside towels!

My well-appointed, FULLY EQUIPPED FAMILY KITCHEN has an American Fridge/Freezer, Ice-Maker, Dishwasher, Electric stove/cooker, built-in Microwave, Electric Kettle, Coffee Maker & Toaster plus quality utensils, lots of coffee mugs, glasses, Flatware & Dinnerware, stainless steel appliances & pans.

FREE BABY EQUIPMENT includes travel crib, stroller, highchair, car seat, bed guards/rails. For added peace of mind, there's also a CHILD SAFETY POOL FENCE & POOL ALARM.

An ELECTRIC POOL HEATER gives you the option of having the pool and spa heated. DECK LIGHTING and MULTI-COLORED, FIBER OPTIC UNDERWATER POOL LIGHTING is included to add to your enjoyment of the outdoor facilities of our home. The LARGE, EXTENDED POOL DECK has a south-west aspect giving pretty much all-day FLORIDA SUNSHINE, and the most amazing sunsets over the LAKE.

HIGH-QUALITY PATIO FURNISHINGS INCLUDING 4 SUN LOUNGERS, TWO SIDE TABLES, FULL-SIZE PATIO TABLE, UMBRELLA, 4 CHAIRS - ALL WITH COMFORTABLE, PADDED SEATS FOR YOUR COMFORT while working on your tan! A CHARCOAL BBQ GRILL is provided with our compliments. GAS BBQ GRILL available to rent.

*** NOTE: This advertising site does provide a feature to display optional extra costs - So the rate quoted is ONLY FOR RENTAL CHARGE + TAXES + REFUNDABLE SECURITY CHARGE ($350). If you want Pool/Spa Heat, Early Check-In (10am rather than 4pm) or Late Check-Out (2pm rather than 10am) then please ask in your inquiry for availability/cost. Also note that stays of less than 7 nights will incure an additinal charge of up to $70 (depending on the number of nights booked).

My family love spending our vacations in the DISNEY AREA and this truly is our second home ... not simply a rental property. Vacation homes vary considerably in terms of location, position and standard of furnishings/amenities provided. I want my guests to enjoy my home as much as I do and invested a lot of time to create a beautiful "home away from home" - from considering paint options to picking out big, comfy sofas and sumptuous, pillow-top mattresses!

The attention to detail has helped create a warm, inviting home with a touch of luxury, which my guests agree really does set my home apart. Those extra, little personal touches throughout will make your stay all the more memorable and enjoyable. My standards in QUALITY and CLEANLINESS are high and I consider myself lucky to have THE BEST MANAGEMENT COMPANY to take wonderful care of my home ... and my guests! They are available to contact at any time during your stay providing total peace of mind should the need arise.

To reflect the value on offer I do not charge extra for midweek booking, minimum stays of just 2 nights are possible and no extra charge on weekends!

Finally, I would like to say a BIG thank you for reading my listing and I hope to welcome you as my guest in the near future!

Cheers

Bob

About the area

Unlike some properties, my house is ideally located in central Kissimmee just off Highway 192. This is perfect for getting to all the main attractions including Disney, Universal and SeaWorld but also the smaller attractions (Crocodile World for example) and the highway for great resturants and shopping. Other local facilities are the main dinner shows (Medieval Times, Arabian Nights, Capone's) and great pass times such as Horse World, Helicopter & Airboat rides. In addition to teh big Mall's my house also has a Walmart Super store 5 mins away which is 24x7. In fact - everything you need to enjoy a great vacation!

Getting here

Guests flying in and using Orlando International Airport (MCO) should allow for a 30 minute (approximate) drive to my house. NOTE: If renting a car to make the drive ensure you have USD$ coinage (approximate $3 worth) as there are some Toll booths on the journey that are low cost ($0.50-$0.75 each) but are automated - so they only take coins not notes/credit cards. Alternatively rent a car with an auto-pay facility built in.

Interaction with guest

Keys for the house are kept in a secure lock box on the porch. When you book my house you are provided with a PIN code for the lock box, so you can go straight to the house on arrival at any time day or night and not have to go via another address at a specific time to pick up keys

“Nice Getaway”

Reviewed 12 Oct 2016

Over all,This was a beautiful home. We had a great time visiting Fla. This home is very close to all the attractions we had planed to visit. All within 20 min. or so. Let me tell you about the home, I was very happy when I walked in the door. The home is well taken care of. And the pool was very inviting after long days at varies parks we went to. There's only a few things they need to tend to. None of the clocks work, The TVs were a little hard to get use to. there is like 5 remotes for each one, Half the batters are no good. Bedroom TV,s need updated (old and very small) The one day we had to go with out Water it was shut off, and it took about 12 hours to get it turned back on. (Not good) It stated in the paper work if you use the gas grill to clean it or you will be charged money, well good luck using it there's no bottom in it (very old needs replaced) The game room sounded like a nice feature but It was so hot in there you didn't want to be in there. But these were a few small downers. aver all we had a great time and the home was beautiful. We would definitely come back here again. For the money I would recommend this home to everyone. You will have a Great time. OH and don;t be fooled by lake view it's a very small pond not a fishing lake. Hope this helps anyone looking at this home. (Go for it you will be happy you did)

The house was very spacious. We had 10 people and never felt crowded. About 15-20 minutes from Disney. Restaurants nearby. Very quiet neighborhood. Pool was a nice bonus. Lake was beautiful.

Reviewed 16 Feb 2016

We had a great week at the villa , it was clean tidy and everything I was hoping for, we had a small issue with the pool being cold despite paying for it to be heated but we contacted the management company and it was sorted within two hours. The children loved the pool and also the added bonus of a playroom where they were occupied for hours with air hockey and pool table . We would definitely stay here again close to all amenities and only 15 mins from Disney parks .

Owner's reply: Really glad you had a great vacation Anne-Marie... this is what it is all about!

“Great to return to this home away from home.”

Reviewed 15 Jan 2016

This is an outstanding place were to stay very close to anything amusing and entertaining in the Kissimmee/Orlando area. Very close also to a multiple array of outlets to make wives and daughters happy during their shopping spree. The house itself can lodge a platoon very comfortable. All the things a house need are there, plus a very well provided play room to keep the youngsters under control. Let me add an extra comment, a very affordable price that will turn down the best hotel offer. In summary, a very well located place to return again feeling like at home.

Owner's reply: Thanks for your review Rolf and I am very glad you and your family had such an enjoyable stay... Your appreciateion makes all the hard work maintaining the house worth while!

“Family Vacation”

Reviewed 13 Jul 2015

One of the best places I've stayed in the last years. A complete home, with a great lake view, game room, a well design kitchen and dining area, and of course, perfect rooms. Everyone in my falily enjoyed the time spent there. Since my first inquire, the manager/owner were very helpfull and had very quick answers. And the price were very reasonable also. And for the supplys, there is a Super Walmart minutes away by car. I really recommend this property.

Owner's reply: Great to hear you had such a good vacation Joaquim - it was a pleasure doing business with you and look forward to any future visits from you and your family! Cheers Bob

“Well deserved Vacation.”

Reviewed 22 May 2015

Had vacationed in area before, however the place we had stayed seemed to be going downhill and then was sold. Searched on line and found this place and had several discussions with Owner. Decided to try it. My wife has recently been thru hell and this vacation was her dream for the year and it turn out to be just that. Totally enjoyed every minute, beautiful place and very well furnished. Pool was so enjoyable....loved the place.

What a beautiful place, me and my family has an exceptional time, enjoying all the facilities this house had to offer. it was even decorated for the holidays...so great! Close to Disney and shopping. The children had a ball in the game room & pool & spa as well, would definitely recommend it to anyone. The one thing I would recommend is having the pool & spa heat heated till 8PM, it was heated form 10-6, so when we got home between 7-8 it was a little chilly, but we still enjoyed it anyway after a long day at Disney! Thanks so much for a memorable vacation!

Our stay at the Presidential Lodge was excellent. The house was in a prime location and very easy to access the local shops, grocery store, and of course Disney. The property is very kept up and is in great condition. We enjoyed working with the owners of the home. They were very easy to work with and clearly communicated all of the details we needed for the stay. We will MOST definitely use them again when we travel to Disney for vacation.
B. Neal - Danville, IL, USA - Oct 2013

We enjoyed our trip to Florida. It was so nice to come to a place that was like home and not a motel room that looks the same anywhere that you go. The owners were very helpful and kind. We were able to get to our locations very easily. My little boy wanted to go to Lego land and SeaWorld and both were not far away at all. Very lovely home with all the comforts of being at home. Well stay again when we are able.
B. Ballard, Connelly Springs, NC, USA - Aug 2013

Our family had a great time in Florida at the Presidential Lodge. The house was everything it boasted to be. The decor, the spaciousness, the pool, the location....so very nice. Perfect for our family of 4 teenagers and grandma too. We checked out at 7 am this morning. I hope that everything was found in good order as we intended. One suggestion...I was not able to find a suitable broom or vaccuum. The broom in the kitchen closet is falling apart and actually made more of a mess. There was also a small hand broom and dustpan for small jobs but with a family the size of mine, I usually sweep fairly often. Thank you for sharing your home with us. It really was great! Five stars from the our family! Thanks again!
