Country Creek Estates villa description

Welcome to our wonderful lakeside villa in the beautiful community of Country Creek Estates – whether you are hitting the theme parks or looking to chill out and relax, our home is perfectly situated for you.

Our home overlooks a lake to the rear - so while you’re relaxing around your very own pool you’ll have a fabulous view of the water, fountain and wildlife instead of looking at a fence or directly into the neighbour’s yard!

Our pool deck gets the sun all day - a very important factor if you are staying in the cooler Winter months - but shade-lovers also have their cool haven under our lanai. We just love having brunch out here while watching the ducks and sitting with a relaxing drink on an evening with our feet up (or in the pool!) after a long day at the parks.

Complimentary wireless internet access is available (even on the pool deck!), just bring your laptop and keep adding your photos to Facebook and Instagram! It’s also a great way to keep up-to-date with events in the parks and the local area, especially if you want to give your feet a break and find something relaxing to do!


We have stayed in far too many hotel rooms which are tiny and have uncomfortable modern furniture - and a view of the service area or a wall or roof! Because of this the aim of our home is to provide a comfortable, homely environment which is light and airy and where you will feel able to relax and enjoy your vacation to the full. So why pay the average hotel rate of $118 per night for a bedroom and bathroom, when you can have a whole villa and your own private pool for the same price? No more slamming doors late at night or noisy guests in the room next door to put up with either!

Our welcoming and comfortable lounge/dining room is the perfect place to relax on an evening whilst watching a movie and has access to the pool deck through sliding doors. It has a large comfortable sectional sofa, coffee table, a flat screen LCD TV with multiple cable channels and a dvd player. We have a dining table and chairs if you want more formal dining - or need somewhere to rest that giant pizza box which won’t fit on your knee!

The master bedroom has a luxurious pillow-top king size bed, phone and flat screen TV/DVD combi, and an en-suite bathroom with his & hers basins, a big oval bath and separate walk-in shower unit. There is a large walk in closet with plenty of storage space, this is also where our baby equipment is stored (a highchair, baby monitors, pack & play and buggy/stroller). The bedroom overlooks the pool area so you can sit in bed and still admire the lakeside view!

Bedroom 2 has a tropical theme with twin beds and sliding doors which lead onto the pool deck/lanai (children are safe as alarms are fitted and will sound if the door is opened). Also has a walk in closet and TV/DVD combi.

Bedroom 3 is our Mickey & Minnie Americana style room which is bright and sunny and also has twin beds and a large closet.

The family bathroom, with basin, toilet, and bath/shower combo, is close to bedrooms 2 & 3 and also has access to the pool area (door has pool alarm).

The kitchen is fully equipped with an oven/hob, microwave, dishwasher, refrigerator/freezer with crushed ice, ice cube and water dispenser, washing machine and tumble dryer. Our retro American diner style breakfast nook is the perfect place to grab a quick coffee and bite to eat before heading out for the day. You can also gain access to the garage from here, where we keep the pool toys and inflatables.

For outdoor dining there is a table and chairs on the lanai/patio, and also a ceiling light and fan for warm summer evenings.

Our listed prices are fully inclusive and have no tax or cleaning fees to add on - many other listings show only the basic price so may not be as cheap as they appear! And if they are - there may be a good reason - is the pool south-facing, are the photos up to date, does the villa have a dependable property manager who will quickly respond to any problems you may have? Our answer to all of those questions is a resounding yes!

              Car: Recommended

              Country Creek is a lovely tranquil community but is close to all amenities.

              FOOD & DRINK – our home is only 2 minutes drive from a 24-hour Walmart Supercenter where you can get just about anything you could ever need - including a self-service kiosk which rents the latest DVDs for you to enjoy in the comfort of your own villa! A new Aldi food store has also just opened in October 2012.

              RESTAURANTS of every description can be found within 15 minutes along Highway 192 – Italian, Chinese, Japanese, Indian, Mexican and more! Also favourites such as Denny’s, Steak’n’Shake, Fat Boys’ BBQ, Red Lobster, Ponderosa and Logan's Roadhouse Grill.

              WALT DISNEY WORLD theme parks are an easy 15 minutes drive away – so in the summer you can come home for a mid-afternoon cooling swim before heading back to the parks for their evening fireworks display – bliss!

              SEAWORLD, UNIVERSAL STUDIOS and INTERNATIONAL DRIVE are great places to visit on your non-Disney days and are only 20-25 minutes away.

              COCOA BEACH is the closest beach, just 80 minutes drive away, where you’ll find white sandy beaches, lovely seafood restaurants and a huge Ron Jon surf shop! Kennedy Space Centre is also just a few miles away along the same coast.

              DAYTONA BEACH – ‘The World’s Most Famous Beach’ - can be reached in 90 minutes and gives you the unique opportunity to actually drive and park your car on the beach! Take a picnic and set it up near the car, or take advantage of the one of the beachfront bars and restaurants (our favourite is Ocean Deck – scare your friends back home with tales of eating gator bites!)

              OLD TOWN is the place to be if you love the 1950s era. It’s only 10 minutes drive away – every weekend they have classic car cruises and entertainment (you might even spot an Elvis impersonator!).

              DRIVE-IN MOVIE THEATRES are very rare these days but you are only 55 minutes away from Silver Moon Drive In at Lakeland – much cheaper and much more fun than a modern multiplex!

              Owner info

              About the owner: We are Paul and Lisa and we live in the North East of England and love the USA - so much so, we even got married in Las Vegas! We have been vacationing in the Orlando area since the early 1990s and will never tire of it – the weather is so wonderful, even in the Winter, and there is so much to do. At first we stayed in hotels, until we discovered the luxury of staying in a villa. The extra space and facilities make it so much easier to have some much needed relaxation time. And as for having your own pool – it just can’t be beat! We’d love to spend much more time in our Kissimmee home, but still work full-time so that we can invest more money on continually improving it. It would be such a shame to leave it empty for the rest of the year, so we’d like to share it with people who will enjoy it and keep it company while we’re away! We want our villa to be a great place to stay, so any profits we make are spent on continually updating and improving - over the last year we have bought flat screen TVs for the lounge, master bedroom and guest bedroom, a sectional sofa for the lounge, a new dryer and bedding for all rooms, also the villa exterior and pool deck have been freshly painted in the last couple of months. We love staying at the villa ourselves and visit at least twice a year, which means we can personally ensure it is kept up to a high standard - and that everything works! We also ask our guests to let us know of anything they come across during their stay which needs to be replaced or repaired by our Property Manager in between our visits.

              Why the Owner Chose Country Creek Estates:
              Our villa was the last one we viewed on our day of house-hunting. The one we were staying in at the time was situated much closer to neighbouring properties and was totally fenced in at the back, so from the moment we arrived at our new home we fell in love with the open aspect and the view of the lake and fountain. We signed the contract the next day as we were so determined not to lose it!

              The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
              Lakeside Villa is wholly owned and operated by us as our one and only private rental property, which enables us to give our full attention to your enquiries and bookings, guaranteeing you a prompt, personal service. Our Management Company is also a small family-owned business who are based just 10 minutes away from the villa and are always available should you need any assistance. They take a great pride in the homes they look after and the Owner personally inspects our property prior to your arrival, ensuring that your holiday home has been cleaned to a high standard and that everything is ready for you, such as turning lights on if you have a late night arrival. Our pool deck has been extended and is one of the largest on the estate, so there is plenty of space around the pool for sun loungers, chairs and tables. On your chill out days you can set yourself up early in the day and stay just where you are without having to chase the sun – no need to squeeze into a small corner to catch the last of the rays! A very important consideration during the Winter months.
