Property description

We want you to visit our quiet Villa and now is the time. Our Villa is very Family Friendly. We are the original owners of the property. Our Villa is built in the style of Key West Architecture, which is a favorite of southern Florida. We are eagerly awaiting when our Villas will be repainted in the Key West colors.

When you enter the front door you be walking into our living room and and then dining room. It is a spacious area and is open to our all new full size kitchen with a spacious dining area and 8 comfortable chairs with a large living area.

The kitchen is an open concept kitchen. So when mom and dad are cooking or doing some baking, the kids are there eating at our large dining table (sits 8) or watching our new large screen television.

You will certainly save a lot of money by cooking your own meals. To save more money, we also suggest that you pack lunches when you go to the theme parks. This will certainly save you a lot of money. Additionally, by bringing your own lunch to the theme parks, you will save a lot of time by not having to stand in long lines for your meals.

Just this week we also had all new bedroom furniture delivered. There is a new queen size bed in the master bedroom and a large dresser with a mirror. Also there are 2 side tables next to the beds and a TV on a small table.

For the two other bedrooms they each have 2 twin beds in each bedroom along with a side table and a dresser.

Additionally, we have a large new sofa in our living room that opens up into a full size bed. So there is an extra space for sleeping for your family.

In the kitchen, we have all new full size stainless steel appliances. It is fully-equipped with all cooking needs, including pots/pans, dishes, flatware/glasses, etc. There is a counter top bar with 2 bar stools for fast meals.

Our Villa is complete with 2 full-size bathrooms (one with a tub/shower and the other bathroom has a walk-in shower with a vessel sink). One of the bathrooms is en-suite.

The master bedroom looks out over the patio and a protected wooded area. This bedroom has an en-suite bathroom and and the other 2 bedrooms both have twin-size beds with a hall bathroom. Please see all the pictures of our Villa that our family has provided.

We are less than 2 miles to Wal-Mart, Super Target and Publix Food Market and convenient to all the area Attractions. This makes it very economical to make all your meals at home and even make sandwiches to take when your family goes to visit Micky and Harry! Through out your stay you will find out that you will save a great deal of money on all your meals and snacks.

Our brand new kitchen is complete with granite counter tops and all full size stainless steel appliances. In addition to all our new custom-made cabinets, we have a small pantry for any extra food you may have.

Two years ago, we had an interior designer completely redecorate our Villa. She also designed and remodeled our kitchen. You can see for yourself by the pictures how nice our Villa is. Our children and grandchildren participated in this project. So it is really child friendly. You can see by all our pictures how truly lovely our Villa is!

Staying in our Villa is so much nicer than staying in a hotel. Family members get their own bedrooms, there's a brand new full-size kitchen for groceries and quick meals, and a full-size washer and dryer so you don't run out of clean clothes! Our Villa is far less expensive than a hotel too!

When you look at our pictures that we posted, you will find one picture that shows the complete blueprints of our villa. All the rooms are shown in detail. Our family thought that this was important so that renters could get a real 'feel' of our home by looking at these blueprints.

We also have a map of the area, so you can see how convenient it is to get to the Disney Theme Parks from our property---Poinciana to Osceola take you right into all the Disney properties. Additionally, we are only 5 miles from Sea World and we are only 7 miles from Universal Studios. All very convenient.

Royal Palm Bay is a small community. Our Association's Board of Directors have worked very hard to get our community where is is today. We just had new roads and new parking installed in Royal Palm Bay. And are very happy and proud of Royal Palm Bay!

Car: Necessary

We are conveniently located to all Disney Properties--about 4 1/2 miles. To get to the Disney Properties, you need to only take 2 roads. Just take Poinciana down to Osceola Parkway and that takes you to all the Disney Properties---The Magic Kingdom, Epcot, MGM, Animal Kingdom.

We are also conveniently located to the water parks, Typhoon Lagoon, Blizzard Beach as well as Downtown Disney. This is such a fun place with some great restaurants and a large movie theater.

And we are centrally located to Universal Studios and Harry Potter. We are also close to Sea World. The children will love all these attractions and it will make for a perfect day.

We are in a perfect location for all the fun in Central Florida. We are less than 2 miles from 192 the main street in Kissimmee.

We are about 4 miles from the city of Celebration (Disney) small town). It is perfectly located in a very quiet area. It is very quaint and is a wonderful retreat from all the excitement of the theme parks. There is a 'Downtown' area that has some small shops, a movie theater, and an ice cream store. Near the center of the town square is a small lake. There are rocking chairs to sit in and relax that are very close to the lake. This is a peaceful, perfect place to relax. Some times other renters have reported that they have seen an alligator in the water!

Close to that same area there is a large hospital with a large ER. We are also very close to many, many outlet malls.Some of our guests go to the Outlet malls for clothing, jewelry, housewares, etc.and enjoy the experience of shopping.

The best outlet mall is only a few miles from our Villa. It is Orlando Premium Outlet Stores. It is on International Drive and has over 80 Designer Stores; over 25 Shoe Stores and over 23 Jewelry Stores along with many fast food restaurants.

Two miles from our Villa there is a large Public Food Market and drug store. We are also very close to a Super-Target (with a Starbucks) and there is a McDonald's further down the street.

We are in a very convenient location. Yet we are in a very quiet small community.

Our location is one of the best in Central Florida and yet we are located in a very private, peaceful, quiet complex--Royal Palm Bay. Out on the patio of our master bedroom, it is so inviting. We can view the protected forested area and listen to the sounds of the birds. One time we even heard the sounds of an owl !! You may also discover many different types of birds. So if you like birds, bring your binoculars!

On 192 there are places to rent bikes. There is also a place to rent segways. There is also a surfing area that provides surfboards.

There is also a carnival with the traditional rides (merry-go round) and (Ferris wheel).

Royal Palm Bay has 3 different ponds where you can discover different types fish and other different types of water animals and wild life. It is very peaceful and relaxing when we take walks around Royal Palm Bay. It is such a quiet retreat and a wonderful place to relax and enjoy your family.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1993

About the owner: We currently live in a large suburb of Chicago, Naperville. I am a Professor Emeritus and I taught Graduate School in Clinical Social Work for many years. My husband was an Insurance Executive before he retired. We have three children and two grandchildren who come down often for a short visit just to relax. Sometimes they come down just to visit all the sites and fun places in the Kissimmee area. However, for every trip to our villa, we always go to the Magic Kingdom--This has been our family tradition for the past 21 years.

Why the Owner Chose Royal Palm Bay:
We purchased this property after staying in a similar complex a few blocks away. When we heard that this development was being built, we purchased this villa immediately. We loved it as soon as we walked in. Even with our children and grandchildren, we are not crowded. It is a perfect, peaceful place for a family of 8. And it is the perfect place to escape with your family. Royal Palm Bay is a quiet and private family community. Royal Palm Bay is the perfect place for families. It has everything, including pool, hot tub, sauna, playground, tennis court, clubhouse (with pool table and exercise room and a very small lending library). Our family sees our Villa as a retreat from all the activities. Our community (Royal Palm Bay) is very quiet and peaceful. Our Villa is also spacious, warm and inviting and centrally located to all the area Theme Parks, attractions, restaurants, malls, etc.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
It is wonderful being so close to all the Disney properties as well as Sea World and Universal Studies--Harry Potter. It is so convenient and easy to get to all these attractions and is far less expensive to rent our villa than to rent 3 or 4 hotel rooms. Since we have a full size complete kitchen that has been all remodeled. We have all brand new custom made cabinets, granite counter tops, and all new stainless steel appliances. it is easy to make family meals for everyone. Royal Palm Bay is a somewhat small complex, yet we still have all the amenities, including, clubhouse, pool, playground, sauna and hot tub, exercise room, etc.
