Overview

We bought the house in 2004 after we stayed in a friends home in October 2003. We loved the community feel and the fact that the residents were so friendly. The estate is about 50 / 50 holiday homes and residential, with many UK owners.Its close proximity to Walt Disney World is convenient for guests and for those who are "parked out" there are lots of on-site amenities to enjoy - three swimming pools, hot tubs, tennis, basket and racquetball courts, childrens play area, fishing etc etc. (all free).

Vista
The estate is gated with 24 hour security, and is close to supermarkets, restaurants, takeaways, bars etc. Our home is located on the main road, but its still a quiet area. It is fully equipped with just about everything you could need for a perfect Florida holiday - there is a sunbathing area at the rear of the house with all weather furniture, which overlooks the lake offset to the right, with a view of the most beautiful sunsets.

Vista
We provide all linens, including beach towels, hair styling equipment, a 37inch HD TV in the lounge / dining area and TVs in most of the other rooms, including the rear porch, all with cable channels. The house has Wi-fi Internet access and all US and Canada calls are free. We try to provide phone cards for International calls. There are CDs books, DVDs for those nights in, and a fully equipped kitchen.We have a sunbathing area at the rear of the house with all weather furniture, a barbecue, bikes etc etc. We have also provided a Sat Nav for the use of guests.

Summary:

Beautiful three bed /two bath bungalow, on gated community at Vista Del Lago, fully equipped, three pools, tennis courts, etc. just five miles from Disney World

We really enjoyed our stay here and will definitely be back. We love Vista Del Lago and Kissimmee so this location was ideal for us. Ramp to the front door is an excellent feature as it makes the property accessible. This is a home from home and all your needs are catered for inc free WiFi, DVDs, Books - Sandra left us drinks in the fridge which was very welcome after a long journey. Sandra contacted me personally which was excellent customer service - I felt like I was renting from a friend :-) Just one request - new toilet seat in the master bathroom - I dont like wood -)

we have stayed in some nice villas at Vista but this one has been the best. The villa was furnished to a high standard and everything we needed was available. We had a great time, Sandra was very helpful with all our questions. Thank you Sandra for letting us stay in your villa . We will be back! Peter and Joanne Myers

Dear Sandra & Jeff Thank you for allowing us to stay in your fantastic villa in this safe gated community. It was lovely and clean, a large, comfortable & very well equipped villa situated in well kept grounds, lovely clubhouse and 3 lovely pools. The villa was like a home from home and ideally positioned off the 192 for Disney and the I4 motorway. We spent every other day at a major park with a rest day “in-between”, but with all the malls and shopping it did not end up been very restful, we did manage to get to the pool a few times to rest our aching legs. We wished we had booked for 3 weeks, we will next time. We will certainly recommend your villa to family and friends. Thank you for all your help and advice before we came and it was lovely to meet you both before we left and see your new villa. Anne & Peter, York, England

Recently returned from Florida having stayed at Hucks Vista ( Aug 2007). Property is excellent with many outstanding features. Situated very close to pool. Brilliant resort area with lots of space and amenities. Mix of residential and vacation properties, but everyone is very friendly. Also close to 192 and esy access to Disney, Kissimmee and Clermont/Davenport. Also close to shopping areas and range of different restaurants. Gives you to chance to get to all the parks and attractions or simply the chance to 'chill out'. Excellent value - would recommend this property to anyone thinking of going to Florida.

The home was very clean and comfortable. The children loved the big bathtub and swimming in the pools. Close to shopping and to Disney. 4 TV's which is a nice bonus, the kids could watch a movie in their room. The back sunroom was beautiful, we ate there a few times. The home is bigger than I thought it would be, there is lots of space. We had a wonderful time.

Lovely comfortable house with everything you could possibly need.

We had a fantastic two weeks at Vista, excellent location for the parks and local attractions, fantastic facilities, including the pool which was literally minutes away on foot. We enjoyed many evenings sitting on the porch watching the sun go down over the lake, absolutely beautiful, will definately be going again, 10 out of 10!

we have just returned from the most relaxing holiday we have ever had. Sandra &jeffs villa is beautifully furnished,spotlessly clean and equipped to the highest standard. It was heaven sitting on the loungers on the patio overlooking the lake.There are lots of great restaurants nearby and very good shopping malls. There is also a place called Disney World nearby we are told.[only kidding we did the parks years ago when our children were young] Now we just want the sun, the food,the occasional ice cold beer and relaxation. Weve been back home now for 24 hours and have already booked for next year. ITS THAT GOOD !!
Verified
An absolute credit to the owners. This is a fabulous house with fabulous amenities and is perfectly located. It is easy to get to and from the parks and on return from the parks exhausted. It is so nice to unwind in the comfortable spacious lounge. All the poeple we met were very friendly and would return at the dro p of a hat. We would highly recommend a stay here as you have everything at your fingertips. Hoping to return next year.... Thank you Sandra for helping to make our first trip to Florida such a memorable 5 star experience.

what can we say. just had the most brilliant holiday in florida which was made all the better by staying in sandra and jeff,s villa. vista del lago is the perfect location for everything, all close to hand. the villa is very large and has been furnished to a high standard and has everthing that you could need. no need to take beach towells or sat nav or anything really as sandra has thought of it all to make it easy for her guests. loads of eateries around and we specially liked Longhorns steakhouse, Carrabas italian, texas roadhouse etc. if you like chinese try P F Changs at millenia mall ( excellent). could go on and on but just would like to say thankyou to sandra and jeff for letting us use there villa. excellent. norman & barbara.

1st - 8th November 2011 -Stayed at this villa in November 2011 with family- my third visit. All I can say is that it just gets better, it is beautifully furnished, well equipped and ideally located both on the estate itself and for access to all the theme parks and attractions. It has everything you would need on holiday and more - I will definitely be going back. It is undoubtedly a home from home and I would reccommend it to anyone. Joan G. Durham UK

We (2 people) had been travelling through the US for 5 weeks and we had arranged to meet our family (5 members) in Orlando for a week of r and r. As a basefor this the house was perfec.t It would equally be perfect for a longer more leisurely stay. All members of the family really enjoyed the facilities and surroundings. As a base to return to after a hard day at the theme parks it cannot be beaten. Sandra was extremely flexible to our needs and phoned us at the house within an hour of our arrival to check everything was fine. Close to Disney world and not that far from Universal and once we had worked out the 192 and the various wizard shops navigation was no problem. The estate was welcoming, friendly and safe and the opportunity to swim / play tennis on our "down day" went down very well. Can recommend this accommodation with no reservations.

We all had a lovely time in Orlando. I have stayed in Orlando before and the villa in vista del lago has been far the best, it felt so homely and had everything we needed. I felt so safe being on the complex and all the facilities were brilliant we meet some lovely people there to, If i ever go back i will certainly book the villa again and i will also recommend it to freinds and family. Sandra and jeff made our stay go smoothly and a happy one. Many thanks Gill and Glen. Brentwood Essex

Wonderful House 19th December 2014 - I can just recommend the House and the booking with Sandra. Sandra is a very kind and helpful Person. The house is beautiful and equipped with everything you need. The Condo is very nice and good located. We had a wonderful stay and we will come back.

another great stay at vista accomodation second to none a home from home will visit again hopefully in the near future all the facilities are there and spotlesly clean you want for nothing it meet all of our expectations
A Fantastic Place to Stay! 31st July 2014 - We have stayed in Vista Del Lago before because it is so close to the Disney Parks and we all agreed that this was the best villa. It was clean and well looked after. There was plenty of space for the five of us to spread out and relax after long, hot days in the Parks. The kitchen is well equipped and there are plenty of towels and having the washer and dryer was great as we didnt have to go home with a suitcase of washing.The screen porch was an extra room with a very comfy sofa and TV. The owner was very helpful with detailed instructions on how to reach the villa from the airport and recommendations for places to shop and where to eat out. We would certainly recommend it to friends. Yvonne M.S. and family, Cheshire, UK
Plenty of room! 16th July 2014 -We spent 10 nights at this property and really enjoyed it. There was plenty of space to spread out and relax, unlike a hotel room! Weve rented condos in Orlando before but this one was a better value for the price. There were more than enough towels, blankets and dishes as well. Our favorite thing was the proximity to the Disney parks (we could see some of the fireworks from Magic Kingdom)! The house was also very well stocked! It was a great place to stay and my 8 year old considered it home while we were there. It really made for a nice relaxing evening after a crazy busy day in the Disney Parks! We also really loved having the washer and dryer handy. There was a grill and bicycles available but we did not take advantage of those items due to a busy schedule. Thanks Sandra for letting us stay in your home. Ill be recommending it to all my family and friends that travel to the area. Holly L. and Family, Texas, USA
Great location, great communication, great experience! 4th – 11th July 2014 Our family of 4 stayed here and couldnt be happier. The communication with Sandra through the booking process was excellent. She was always quick to respond and provided us with wonderful directions and tips for the area (which there are tons of chain stores and restaurants all around). We were about 10 mins from Disney and just over an hour drive to Clearwater. For the days that we didnt want to travel by car we could walk to one of the 3 pools on the property or just enjoy the home itself that was fully stocked with everything we could ever want or need. My family will treasure the memories of this vacation and we cant wait to come back! Laura H. and Family, N.J., USA
8th December 2013 - It was everything we hoped it would be, help provided for first timer, and owner was very accommodating - we will be going back! Vaughn E. and family, USA
21/12/2012 Excellent home in a very nice neighborhood. Middle of everything. Very safe gated community. And the icing on the top is that the owner is super nice. Even though we did not get to meet her. She was more than accommodating of our needs. We will definitely rent this beautiful home again. – Rashed and family, Ann Arbor, USA
28th Sept 2013 – 7th Oct 2013 This was our sixth stay at Vista del Lago and once again we were not disappointed, Jeff and Sandra go out of their way to make your stay as pleasant as possible and really care that you have everything and more to enjoy your vacation. With Disney (20 mins), Universal (30 mins) and several shopping locations and restaurants nearby this really is the perfect place to stay. Although this was a park holiday I would be quite happy to stay in the villa sitting in the sun room and look out at the palm trees and lake, occasionally going to the clubhouse pools for a swim and chat to the friendly staff and locals. We really love staying here and can do nothing but highly recommend this villa. Cant wait to go back. Susan, Sue & Barbara C, NE UK
“All-around great place to stay!” 30th June 13 – 6th July 2013 - The pictures of this rental do not do it justice. We LOVED it! It was beautifully and tastefully decorated, included all the amenities you could possibly need, and was close to Disney which was the reason for our stay. The owner is straightforward and honest - there was even a $20 cash refund waiting for me when I arrived, because of a slight overpayment due to the exchange rate. Totally not necessary! The place is WELL worth what we paid! Cant wait to stay again! Kathy F, Naples, Florida
22nd June 13 – 29th June 13 - We all had a fab time at your lovely house. You thought of everything!! It’s a lovely comfortable house with everything you could possibly need. Marion D. and Family, UK
3rd April 2013 – 28th April 2013 This was the second time we have stayed at this bungalow. We did not think it could get better than the first visit but it did.The bungalow is spotlessly clean, beautifully furnished, very quiet and has a lovely view of the lake.We spent hours just relaxing on the patio then cooling off in the pool just across the road.Disney is just a couple of miles away and there are dozens of great restaurants nearby. Cant wait for our next visit [already booked]. Denis and Elaine S. West Yorks, UK
30th Dec 2012 – 31st March 2013 - We are snowbirds and this is our 8th year in this house. We find it great. We have everything we need and more. Sandra and Jeff are always improving conditions around the house. We are extremely happy with the accommodations. We just hope we can continue to come for years to come. If there ever is a problem, it is attended to immediately. We would certainly recommend staying here. Joyce and John L. Ontario, Canada
We all just loved the place. It has everything we needed plus lots of extras like the fishing lake and bikes, and pools. The location was perfect and we just did not want to go home. 5 out of 5. (4th – 10th August 2012) Donnie & Marlene J. Sth Carolina US
Great Place to Stay – Five Star! (Jul 21st 2012 – 30th July 2012) Our family had a great time staying here. We had everything we needed, like a home away from home. We have relatives nearby in Groveland.This location was close to them as well as all the parks. We went to Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom and were able to get there in no time. So many places to eat close by or just being able to cook in was great. We found it very accessible to both coasts as well. Your home exceeded our expectations and we recomend it highly. Much better than staying in a hotel. Thanks Sandra and Jeff, you really put a lot of thought into making people comfortable. Craig B. and Family, Arizona, US

Nov 2011 -The house is really perfect. Nice location, silent and safe condo and Sandra is brilliant. She takes care of every single detail. We have been for 15 days during end november in 3 adults. We can not imagine ourselves staying in a hotel instead of Sandras house. We strong recommend. The view, silent and comfort are unbeatable. Robson L. and family, Sao Paulo, Brazil
Stayed for 2 weeks from 15th Sept. Its a beautiful home, very spacious, comfortable and extremely clean. Great base for the whole of Orlando. Disneys right on your doorstep, as is great eateries.... we love the Ale House 2 mins from Lago ... then theres the Longhorn Steakhouse across the road (with a deal at $29.99 for two) and Carabas which is one of the beat meals weve had in Florida and we eat out every night !! Go, you will not be disappointed .... We will return. And yet again, the owner Sandra is a lovely kind and most helpful young lady. Thanks again Sandra. Ooops and Jeff.
We love Vista, we have been here before, the location of the home and the community is excellent. The rear patio is a sun trap, the house itself is so comfortable and well equipped, it felt like home. We loved the pools, particularly the main one at Reception, and the friendly cafe. We used the cycles to ride around the estate. Great access to all the parks, particularly Disney, but also close to all the main road networks. We will definitely be going back!
If you are planning a trip to the Disney area in Florida this is the place to stay! We have rented from the owners here on several occasions now and have had such pleasurable experiences every time! They are very nice and it is evident that they care about their home for it has been decorated with much love. I definitely recommend you stay here! It is so cozy and clean and has plenty of space. There is a wonderful screen porch off of the back that just screams for you to play cards and laugh with family and friends! There is also a covered patio off of the porch that suits well for unwinding after a long day of sightseeing! The neighborhood is very quiet and calm and the streets are lined with big oak trees! You feel as if you have had a breath of fresh air after a week’s stay in Vista del Lago. It is only 5 miles or so from the entrance to Disney and 10 miles from wonderful outlet malls! There is also a state park, Super Target, Publix, and Walgreens within a few miles from the neighborhood! While staying here you have access to the pool, clubhouse and great playground and tennis courts which all sit on a large lake. I think I have said enough! This is the best place to stay for the best deal in the area! Beverley C and family, Sth Carolina USA (Can be verified)l
We are lucky enough to regular visitors to Florida and consider Vista del Lago our home from home, and quite simply Sandra and Jeffs house is fabulous! Its a beautiful house which is set out so well for really comfortable living. As do visit regularly we dont spend all our time running about, we really enjoy the house and the park, our 2 children love it because they always make friends at the pool, we play tennis, cycle around the park and love watching the sunsetting as we sit on the patio. Sandra provides everything and more for a wonderful holiday. A holiday Florida doesnt have to be manic, and this is the perfect chill out zone!
We loved our stay at Sandras villa! It is in an ideal location for all the themeparks and the complex was lovely, with a pool just up the street and a lake out back. We spent most of our days at the themeparks then returned for a couple of of hours relaxing in the pool, which was really quiet the whole time we were there. The villa itself is lovely, really homely and has everything you could need. We would highly recommend this villa to our friends and family and we will hopefully be returning some day soon. Thanks Sandra!
Thanks Sandra for an excellent stay at Vista. Brilliant, Brilliant, Brilliant!!! The Villa is well maintained to a high standard and is very clean. All your needs are catered for and you want for nothing around the villa. Even had walkie talkies for using around the parks! The kids (11 and 5) loved it turning the conservatory into their play area. The pools are great for all and excellent eateries are within 10mins drive. You couldnt wish to be any closer to Disney yet still have peice and tranquility around the home. Sandra is very helpful and is at the end of the phone in case of any questions. We will be returning and would highly recommend this villa to anyone. Keep up the excellent work!!!
This property is ideal for a fun packed family holiday. This our second visit to the villa and we will return. The villa is home from home with every requirement catered for. The onsite ameneties are excellent catering for all ages. I would not look at staying at any other accommodation in Florida and would highly recommend to family and friends. The vendors are really helpful and are available for any questions even when on holiday!!
Stayed for a week in May as a base for golfing week. Its a beautiful home, very spacious, comfortable and clean. The pictures not doing justice. Great base for loads of golf courses and Disney.... all on your doorstep. Plenty of eateries for every taste near buy. We will return. Oh, and the owner Sandra is a lovely kind and most helpful young lady. Thanks Sandra.
We travelled to your villa with 10 people, six of them being kids. This was our first visit and we werent really sure what to expect. Upon arrival we were elated! The house was way beyond our expectations. The pictures dont quite describe how beautiful the whole set up is. The pool was refreshing after a long day at Disney. The kids had an amazing time and no one wanted to leave. Accommodating six children can be challenging sometimes, but not here! I dont think they watched t.v. once. Thanks to Sandra for being so helpful in making our vacation a home away from home. Hope to see you next year.

Loved it loved it loved it! Exceeded expectations in every way. Location of Vista superb for shopping and theme parks, but sufficiently out of the hustle and bustle that when you come back to the house you can relax with ease. House is very well maintained and spacious, could easily accommodate large family. Everything is there!! We really could have take a few tshirts and shorts and nothing else, I think Sandra and Jeff have thought of everything. And what thoughtful and considerate owners, checking we were happy on arrival and helping out when we were stranded due to Iceland volcano crisis. Would recommend to anyone. Highly recommend watching the sunset over the lake whilst enjoying that holiday cocktail on the patio !
August 2004 - "Fabulous - the photographs don't do it justice"
June 2004 - "It wsa just son nice to be able to relax and put your feet up after a day at the parks, and feel at home."
