Villas of Somerset condo description

Our vacation Villa is located in The Villas at Somerset, Kissimmee, Florida, and ALL VILLAS THERE ARE NOT CREATED EQUAL! Some are owned by large management companies who manage multiple units and others are owned by individuals like us. The rental experience can vary significantly at the Villas of Somerset depending on which individual unit you rent. Rent one of the mass-marketed units or one of the absentee ownership ones and you may be disappointed.
Rent ours and we guarantee you won't be!!

As owners, we constantly upgrade our unit because it is our vacation home. Our home has a queen bed in the master bedroom, queen in the second bedroom, two twins in the third bedroom and a sleeper sofa in the living room. We bought the unit new and, since we purchased it, have upgraded the carpeting and furniture, installed brass fixtures in the bathrooms, ceramic tiled the floors in the bathrooms, kitchen, dining room and hallway, installed granite counter tops and stainless steel sinks in the kitchen, installed ceiling fans and flat panel high definition TV's with DVD players in all the bedrooms, a stained glass fixture in the dining room, added decorative plants throughout and hung wallpaper borders and new artwork in all the rooms. We also provide free wireless high-speed internet access and HBO.
For those rainy days or restful evenings, our entertainment center in the living room contains a large flat panel high definition TV with DVD player. You will also find a library of DVD's, paperback books, puzzles and games for your enjoyment.

Now you might say, 'I don't care about all that, I just want a good price.' We rent the Villa ourselves to keep our rates low by eliminating rental agency profits and would rather have it rented than vacant. Our rates are low and haven't increased in the last 20 years. The bottom line is you get a more luxurious accommodation at less than you would pay for one of the mass-marketed ORDINARY ones!!
We have amassed quite a long list of loyal returning guests over the years. Once you stay at our condo you will discover what all of our guests have discovered, our home is the best lodging value, dollar for dollar, in the Disney area!

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1990

              About the owner: vb Me and my wife Anna live in Aberdeen, NJ and have three children and a Yorkshire Terrier named Ernie. When the children were younger, we decided to try a vacation condo near Disney. The advantages of being able to spread out in a 3 bedroom condo with the kids was fantastic! It actually was the reason we decided to purchase ! Our grown children still enjoy going down a few times a year with their friends and families. Anna and I are very active in raising money for the fight against breast cancer, as Anna was diagnosed in 2002. She is now a 12-year breast cancer survivor! The picture is of me and Anna in our New Jersey backyard wearing our custom-made team sweatshirts the day of the annual 3K Breast Cancer Walk in Point Pleasant Beach, NJ. We broke our personal fundraising record in 2013 by raising $6,282.00! Since 2002 we have rasied over $30,000 for Making Strides Against Breast Cancer and are Ambassadors for The American Cancer Society. We also love country music and two-stepping and try to go dancing once a week.

              Why the Owner Chose Villas of Somerset:
              Once we stayed in a vacation condo near Disney there was no going back to a single hotel room. Having the convenience of making a late night snack in the kitchen, grabbing a cold soda out of the fridge (no need to go get ice at the hotel ice making machine) or a scoop of ice cream out of the freezer, all without leaving the comfort of your condo, is just fantastic. There is also so much to do within minutes of the condo with the theme parks, water parks, restaurants and spring training baseball that we thought this is an area we will probably continue to return to because of our children and eventually our grand children. We decided we would invest in a vacation condo there. We are die-hard Yankee fans and spring training in Tampa is just an hour away! The trip from New Jersey to Kissimmee is about 17 hours by car and we have developed a routine that actually makes the trip very do-able. Often we have tools, supplies and artwork to bring down that cannot be easily taken on a plane, so the car trips become somewhat of a necessity. But above all else, we are just 3 1/2 miles from the Disney entrance and that is a joy (especially when you leave the park at night, completely exhausted, and know that you will be in bed a mere 10 minutes from now! )

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              Now that our children are grown and visit the condo with their families and friends, Anna and I vacation there by ourselves and enjoy a restful, no pressure, no-schedule vacation that usually includes sprucing up the condo. Anna loves all the shopping. I'll bet that there must be 4 or 5 malls within a 10 mile radius of our unit with everything from the very upscale to the traditional chain stores to the fantastic outlets! Anna is a decorator in every sense of the word, so many of these shopping trips are geared toward finding something special to add to the decor of the condo. And we ALWAYS do!
