Stayed Friday 26 December 2014 with Family
My family and I rented this home while my son played in the Disney Soccer Showcase (Dec. 26-30, 2014). The neighborhood was very tranquil and virtually lured you to sleep once you passed the security gate on your way to the property. This gated community was also very secure as they had an off-duty police officer patrolling at nights. Once you leave the neighborhood, all shopping and other entertainment needs can be met within a moments drive. The community center has something for everyone, from the little one's up to the seniors. The property was as described and everything was in order. All needs were met in this home; any and everything was available. The owners were very responsive in their communications and I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Thanks for a wonderful stay Andrea and Paul!

We had a lovely 3 weeks here great location on the site just 3 minute walk to a lovely outdoor pool. The community is really nice with lots of things to do and we felt really safe. The location on the 192 is great and close to all the major attractions. I had a query during my stay and we got a swift response. We will defiantly stay here again and would recommend the property.

Having stayed on the estate before, we knew what to expect in terms of the location, type of property, community facilities etc. It is a quiet area with a mixture of permanent residents and holiday homes. The house was spacious and comfortable The amenities were excellent with everything we wanted available, even down to a scale to weigh suitcases. We would definately stay here again.

the villa had everything needed to enjoy the stay there,we enjoyed it that much we have booked again for next year but not through villarenters who have still to refund our security deposit and have completely ignored my emails to them so i certainly would not go through them again
Verified
My husband and I have stayed at this villa before this time though it looked as if it needed a good clean and was a bit tired looking
Owner reply:

We were very upset over this review as the a number of the rooms were decorated and new floor covering was laid at the end of last year. The exterior of the house is cleaned regularly and the front door is painted every year. There are a number of items that are less than a year old including a new washer, lcd tv in master bedroom and dvd player as well as new bedding and towels every twelve months.I emailed the renters at the middle of July asking for additional information that we may not be aware of as we are UK owners but unfortunately have not received a reply. The renters did not contact the management company during their stay with any problems regarding the cleanliness etc so they are as upset as we are.

first class home from home everthing you need for your holiday is in the villia well thought out thakn you

This villa really is a home from home. The owners have considered your every need e.g. there are scales to weigh your suitcases, walkie talkies to locate family in the theme parks etc. Computer so you can keep in touch with family & friends. Entertainment system e.g. stereo, playstation, DVD players, TV. selec tion of novels and DVDs which were welcome after a long day shopping. The key pad on the door is a real plus as you dont need to carry the keys for the house to the pool and saves time scrabbling around in your handbag.Its cosy and comfortable - ideal size for a couple or small family. Would book again! ps Would have liked the welcome pack in hard copy left in the holiday home - I assumed it would be so didnt print it prior to departure.

I usually visit Florida once or twice a year using my time share facilities and have done so for 15 years. As this was an unplanned vacation no time share facilities were available. I had already arranged flights therefore began browsing on the internet for accomodation. I was very shocked to see the cost of renting all forms of holiday accomodation, so was rather surprised to see Cute and Cosy advertised at a rental of £300 per week, not per person but for the villa. I immediately booked it for two weeks. Although there was only myself and grandson, this was money well spent. We had a lovely time in a lovely home, in a lovely environment. We will be using this property again and I have put the details in "favourites"

We were a little sceptical that we would enjoy staying at a house costing just £300 a week rather than one costing £450 (as in previoius years) but we were highly delighted with what we found! The property is situated in a very quite part of the estate but very close to a swimming pool (100 yards). It was equipped to a very high standard with more than enough sheets, towels, crockery, cutlery etc., etc. It is spacious and easily big enough for our family of 4 (two adults plus two sons of 11 and 16). They certainly made use of the DVD players and PS2. Access to Universal, Disney or (our preferred theme park) Busch Gardens via the I4 was very easy and quick. Several shopping areas are close by including supermarkets, pharmacies and take-away pizzarias. We were evacuated from the Keys before Hurricane Wilma struck and a call to Andrea and Paul enabled us to gain access to the house before we were originally due. Full marks on that score!! On the whole we thoroughly enjoyed our time and would have no hesitation in re-visiting the property or recommending it to others.

Nice villa with all you need to enjoy a vacation and a perfect placing for the attractions / parks in Orlando. The community is a quiet and nice area, where you can relax after a day in the parks. The many restaurants close to the community, makes it easy to find food for all taste.

July 2006. The Lopes Family. W.Palm Beach Florida.This house was very welcoming and homey from the very moment that we walked in. Right by Disney and other attractions this house is quiet but surrounded by food and entertainment.
June 2006. The Piersol Family. OH USA.We like going into Disney through the secret back "path" and coming home for an afternoon nap. There is much more room here than the Disney hotels. The extra space suits our family well. We went to Universal Sudios and to see Shamu. There is just so much here for us to do and right so near to the extra special "Mouse". Thank you for the hospitality at your Florida House.

The Barr Family, Dundee, Scotland. December 2007.Very comfortable beautiful villa. this was our Fifth time to Vista del Lago and this was by far the best.

April 2005Dear Andrea and Paul, We just returned from our trip to Florida, and wanted to thank you for accommodating us at short notice, and for making our stay one of the most comfortable we have had. Your pad in Kissimmee is outstanding and truly in "move-in" condition. The property management staff could not have been more helpful, and the key/pass collection and drop off process could not have been easier. We put all of the excellent leisure facilities in the clubhouse to good use, and made friends with many families doing the same. We would highly recommend your "fun pad" to anyone, and as an indication of our total satisfaction - we would like to re-book for another week in July! Thanks again and best regards The Langlois Family Noblesville, IN
