Winter Garden bungalow description
We have owned Vista since 2004 and have spent many happy days here, and (hopefully) have helped the vast majority of our guests to have a fabulous Florida holiday, and many excellent reviews and comments in our guest book.
The bungalow is approximately 1640 sq feet in size with a lounge / dining area, fully fitted kitchen with breakfast area, fully screened porch with patio table and chairs, cottage suite and TV. The lounge has a 37 inch HDTV with cable channels and there are two portable TVs for use, plus a TV in the rear porch.
The master bathroom is huge with a large round tub, separate shower and twin vanity units. The master bedroom and guest bedroom both have queen size beds with built in closets, both having new mattress sets in 2012, and the third bedroom has twin over full bunk bed, ideal for the kids.
The master bathroom has been refurbished (2012) and we put new luxurious sofas, (three seater and a loveseat, plus a recliner chair, in the lounge (2012). New carpets have been fitted in the lounge and master bedoom (late 2011) and in the queen guest bedroom (2012).
Externally there is a carport and shed and a west facing patio area to the rear of the shed with all weather furniture, and a view of the lake, and the most beautiful Florida sunsets.
There is a community pool just a couple of minutes from the home, which is usually quiet. If you want to mingle, there are two other pools, just a short distance in the other direction, at the main reception area, where you will also find all of the amenities such as the pool room, sauna, play area etc.
The community is about 50/50 residential and vacation homes, and we have found it to be very friendly and the gated (staffed)entrance gives that added feeling of security. Although we have since bought a pool home, we still stay at Vista out of choice sometimes, because we love the relaxed, friendly lifestyle there.

Home away from Home!!
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

Sixth stay!Guest comment entered by owner
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. Can't wait to go back.

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!

Fantastic place to stay!
Reviewed September 6, 2013NEW A good reason to book 14384 Vista Del Lago Villa for your holiday is the generosity of spirit of the owners. They are so obliging and full of helpful tips and advice (priceless). A superb spacious, clean, bright villa. Set in a scenic, peaceful gated community. Off 192 highway which gives you quick easy access to restaurants, shops, Disney parks and major routes. Highly recommend it, it met all the needs of a family of varying age groups.

We would not stay anywhere else in Orlando!
This is our second stay here and the owners are more than helpful with any query you have and will go out of their way to ensure your stay is the best it can possibly be. The Villa is fully kitted out with everything you could need and is very well maintained and clean - it's a delight to stay. The villa is situated in a gated community (staff are very friendly) which provides peace of mind, with sports & pool facilities available which are also very clean and well maintained, suitable for all ages especially keeping 3 teenagers amused on our 'days off' from the Parks! The villa is located within easy reach of all the main attractions with some really good restaurants close by. If we ever get to go again I would not stay anywhere else!

Great place to stay!
Stayed here for the fifth time with family - it just gets better every time we visit. It really is a beautiful, comfortable home from home. Loved the new cushions on the patio furniture and the new sofa's etc in the lounge. Cant wait for our next trip.

All around lovely 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! Can't wait to stay again!

Third visit booked!Guest comment entered by owner
Third visit booked!
3rd May 2013 – 28th May 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. Can't wait for our next visit [already booked].

Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: Jeff and I bought Vista after staying at a friends villa in 2003. We'd been visiting Florida since 1990, but just fell in love with the community at Vista so decided to buy a home there and have never looked back. It was a big step for we cautious Brits to take but we have never regretted a moment of it! Because we visited the Orlando area so many times before we bought it, we knew what people were looking for on a trip to Florida, so we have tried to provide as much as possible to make it a home from home, after a busy day at the theme parks.
Why the Owner Chose Winter Garden:
One of the things we liked about Vista was the fact that it was close to Disney, but in a relatively quiet area on the US 192. There has been some retail development since then, restaurants supermarkets etc, which have added to the amenities without detracting from the area. We also liked the feeling of security and the friendly atmosphere. Having looked at several other homes during the course of a long day, we walked into this one last viewing, and although it was in a sorry state we just fell in love with it's location and the rear aspect, especially the porch! We have spent many, many, hours bringing it up to a high standard.
